张健仁﹕停止“进口”外劳 砂政府须捍卫砂民利益

Image
(本报古晋31日讯)在政府当局即将引进孟加拉外劳到砂州从事油棕种植业的课题上﹐砂州政府应该优先考虑到砂州人民的利益课题﹐并将砂州人民的利益放在油棕种植公司的利益之上。 砂行动党主席张健仁国州议员是在今午于该党总部召开的新闻发布会上发言时﹐针对砂州子民阵线就政府当局即将引进孟加拉外劳到砂州从事油棕种植业的事项进行和平请愿活动一事﹐如是表示。 他说﹐其本身曾经在上一次的州立法会议中提出有关课题﹐并曾向砂州政府做出停止“进口”外劳的呼吁。 “唯砂州政府当时依旧决定引进外劳﹐并让他们与砂州人民竞争就业的机会。” 他认为说﹐相关阵线已经就政府当局即将引进孟加拉外劳到砂州从事油棕种植业的事项表明了明确的立场﹐所以他希望砂州政府能够听取砂州本土人民所发出的心声。 “身为砂州人民所选出来的民选政府﹐砂州政府必须捍卫砂州人民的利益。” 他也说明﹐油棕种植公司其实拥有可观的利润﹐所以有关公司应该透过提高薪金之举来吸引本地人民从事油棕种植工作。 他更指出﹐引进廉价外劳之举﹐将只会让本地的油棕种植公司从中受惠。 他也趁机呼吁砂州政府优先考虑到砂州人民的利益课题﹐并将砂州人民的利益放在油棕种植公司的利益之上。 取自诗华日报(31/1/2015)

收集居民签名支持 捍卫锡盖族习俗地权益

Image
(本报古晋31日讯)砂行动党将在石隆门锡盖地区进行一项签名运动﹐以期从中收集当地居民的签名支持﹐进而共同捍卫当地居民的土著习俗地权益。 砂行动党主席张健仁国州议员是在今午于该党总部召开的新闻发布会上发言时﹐如是表示。 他说﹐砂行动党将进行一项签名运动﹐以收集锡盖地区居民的签名﹐进而从中共同捍卫当地人民的土著习俗地权益。 “当地社群约由2000到3000户家庭组成﹐并拥有近万人口﹐所以我们希望能够成功收集当地1000个居民的签名。” 他也透露﹐该党认为﹐锡盖地区的土地测量工作﹐必须以更正确﹑透明的方式来进行。 锡盖社群拥30%土地 与此同时﹐石隆门锡盖土地委员会主席兼砂行动党碧湖支部署理主席多美尼则在会上说明﹐该委员会乃成立于2009年﹐并旨在保护锡盖土著习俗地。 “自我们的社群祖先开始在当地居住时﹐当地就被种上了果树﹐所以锡盖土著习俗地的范围﹐就占据了大约1万2000英亩的面积。” 他续称﹐该片土地曾经于1977年3月3日在664宪报通知书下﹐被宪报为政府保留地。 他也披露﹐在锡盖土地委员会于2009年做出申请后﹐有关宪报规定就在2010年被撤销。 “是项宪报撤销之举也意味说﹐锡盖地区内12个甘榜的居民﹐将拥有当地的土著习俗权益。” 唯他指出﹐虽然当地正在进行土地测量的程序﹐唯有关程序的进行﹐将导致锡盖社群只拥有该片土地中的30%土地。 “另外的70%土地﹐则将归还给砂州政府。” 不支持土地测量工作 他因此表示﹐锡盖当地人民绝不支持是项土地测量工作的进行。 “这是因为﹐它意味要拿走我们的土著习俗地。” 他不忘强调﹐唯有在该片面积为1万2000英亩的土地均归入锡盖土著习俗地范围的前提下﹐当地人民才会同意土地测量工作的进行。 较后时﹐砂行动党也在会上推介由该党党员汤姆斯德贡拉卡所制作的录影光碟﹐并宣布将以每片6令吉的价格来发售有关光碟。 该党相信﹐是片光碟将能够让达雅民众了解为何要加入砂行动党的理由。 有关光碟﹐将可在该党各大支部购得。 取自诗华日报(31/1/2015)

Villagers fume over alleged 'surrender' of NCR land

Image
Some 10,000 villagers from 12 villages in the Singai area in Bau have expressed their anger against their elected representative, Tasik Biru state assemblyperson Peter Nansian, who allegedly “surrendered” 70 percent of their 12,000-acre native customary rights (NCR) land to the state government.

According to Dominic Daon, a resident of one of the villages, he heard Nansian telling villagers that he had agreed to the government carrying out a perimeter survey by the Land and Survey Department.

Nansian (left) is Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras) deputy president and assistant minister for community services and industrial development.

"Now the people are angry with him after knowing that 70 percent (or 8,400 acres) of the land will be reverted to the state government as state land," said Daon at a press conference at the Kuching DAP headquarters this morning.

"What is left, is 3,600 acres to be shared by 10,000 people."

The villagers had farmed, cultivated and planted t…

张健仁﹕避免商家牟取暴利 应废除白糖进口准证

Image
(本报古晋29日讯)政府当局应该废除白糖进口准证制度﹐以让商家可以自由进口白糖﹐进而让我国的白糖市场价格可处于每公斤约2令吉10仙的水平。 砂行动党主席张健仁国州议员是在今早于该党总部召开的新闻发布会上发言时﹐如是做出建议。 他说﹐虽然马币贬值﹐但我国的白糖进口商就算以每公斤介于2令吉到2令吉10仙的价格来售卖白糖﹐也将还是可以赚取利润的。 “唯﹐我国当前的白糖市场售价﹐却是处于每公斤2令吉80仙的水平。” 他也披露﹐贸消当局目前正在反暴利行动下﹐积极展开相关取缔行动﹐以对付该些赚取暴利的不良商家。 但他认为﹐该些拥有进口准证的白糖进口商﹐才是在牟取暴利﹑危害大众利益的一群。 “我不同意商家坐地起价﹑牟取暴利的行为﹐但我还是认为说﹐在进行取缔方面﹐贸消当局人员应该要身体力行﹐对付该些真正在牟取暴利的人。” 他更建议说﹐政府当局应该废除白糖进口准证制度﹐以让商家可以自由进口白糖﹐进而让我国的白糖市场价格可处于每公斤约2令吉10仙的水平。 取自诗华日报(30/1/2015)

MACC to probe Batu Kawah land deal

Image
The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has assured Sarawak DAP it is investigating the Batu Kawah land deal which was alienated by the state government to a private company at far below market price.

Revealing this at a media conference in Kuching today, state DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen said that he had received a letter from MACC that it would look into the complaints following documents submitted by him on Jan 14, 2015.

The MACC letter, dated Jan 21, addressed to Chong said its Information Review Committee, after a meeting, made the decision to follow up on the complaint.

Chong who is the Bandar Kuching MP for and Kota Sentosa assemblyperson, called on the state government to freeze the land deal while waiting for the outcome of the investigation.

The 267.15 acres of state land, valued at the market price of RM500 million, was alienated to the private company at RM115 million.

The agreement was entered into on Mar 8, 2014, eight days after Adenan Satem became chief minister of …

张健仁:注重砂民利益 砂火箭党员是本地人

Image
(本报古晋24日讯)就本州首长表示在来届州选,选民要支持本土政党,包括联民党及自强党,而不应投票给来自西马政党之言论,行动党砂州委员会主席张健仁揶揄,砂国阵应该优先拒绝使用国阵的“天秤”作为自己的党旗标志,或可将天秤一分为二;因为这个标志来自西马,而整个国阵组织是以西马为主,也长期的歧视及忽略砂州发展! 他认为,如今人民最重要的考量点,就是一个政党是否可以真正捍卫及争取人民的权益,毕竟行动党也是全国政党,而该党的砂拉越党员都是砂拉越人,都是以砂人民利益为优先。 把西马资源搬到砂 他举例,该党甚至将西马的资源搬来砂州,让砂州人民受惠。 “上周,行动党在诗巫举办医药义诊,我们从西马安排10名专科医生,以及2名普通医生来替东马的郊区人民看病。这是现场义诊的形式,不只为人民提供诊断,也医治,包括小儿科、妇科、心脏、牙科、皮肤病、骨科、眼科等。” “相比国阵,他们是将东马资源搬去西马。” 选民懂得观看政局 张健仁深信,人民看政党,不是以它是西马,或全国政党而言,乃是哪一个政党才是真正捍卫人民权益的政党! 他相信,现代的选民是聪慧及成熟的,可以观看出很多政治局面,甚至相当了解各个政党的政策及实施。 取自诗华日报(25/1/2015)

Will Sarawak party SUPP quit BN?

Image
The question has been put to Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) following the state BN government’s support for the newly-formed United People’s Party (UPP), which is made up of former SUPP members.

The presence of State Minister for Housing and Minister for Tourism, Abang Johari Abang Openg, at UPP’s inaugural triennial delegates conference (TDC)  in Kuching yesterday is seen as a clear and strong indication of the state government’s support for UPP.

The presence of Abang Johari (right) was seen as even more significant becase he was announced as the official representative of Chief Minister Adenan Satem at the UPP function.

UPP was formed late year, after it broke away from SUPP following a protracted leadership crisis.

The current members of the state BN are Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS), Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) and SUPP.

Even though UPP is not a member of the state BN, two of its members are in the state cabinet - Local Governm…

选委会所建议的选区划分,根本就是为了要增加国阵的选区。

Image
(古晋11日讯)古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员揶揄,选举委员会针对所建议的选区划分的解释,其实是愈描愈黑,更加暴露选举委员会为国阵护航的角色。

张健仁今天再次抨击选举委员会为国阵的第14成员党,选委会所建议的选区划分,根本就是为了要增加国阵的选区。而过去几天选委会所给予的解析,自相矛盾。

张氏指出两点选委会自相矛盾的言论:

1.选委会称说,选区划分为更小,是为了方便中选议员可以提供更好的服务。

若这论调可以成了的话,为什么国会选区没有增加? 难道州议员的选区需要缩小选区以提供更好的服务,国会议员就不需要提供更好的服务?
选委会自己也知道,国阵在国会没有3份2的多数议席,选委会所建议的选区划分的不公平程度,没有一位正常的在野党议员会支持。 因此,选委会的荒唐建议,怎样也是无法在国会被通过的。

2.选委会称说,郊区或半郊区的选区面积比较大,比较难服务,因此应该有比较少的选民。

若这论调成立的话,那为什么砂督的面积如此的小,但选民人数却只有区区的1万3580人?  砂督的面积比浮罗岸州选区稍微大一点点,但比朋岭州选区或巴都林当州选区小许多。 砂督的面积也只是哥打圣淘沙州选区面积的1/3,更只是石角州选区面积的1/5而已。

但是,砂督的选民人数只是区区13580人,而其他这5个选区的选民人数却是:
浮罗岸 (22873选民);
朋岭 (30881选民);
巴都林当 (24640选民);
哥打圣淘沙 (21247选民); or
石角 (19643选民)


张氏也说,最荒谬的是,增加了11个州选区,但是国会选区连1个都没有增加。 唯一的解释就是,选委会赶紧增加州议席以应付砂州州选,因为现今多了亲国阵的联民党和力量党。 虽然这11个新的州选区不会全部给这两个“新成员”,但是至少有了一些新选区的分配,可以减少这两个“新成员”和人联党及民进党之间的摩擦。

张健仁表示,如果选举委员会还有意要挽救其所仅存的公信力和尊严,它应该收回这选区划分的建议,另外提出比较中立和合理的选区划分建议。

The integrity and impartiality of the Election Commission (EC) is called to question on the recently announced delineation exercise.

Image
The integrity and impartiality of the Election Commission (EC) is called to question on the recently announced delineation exercise.  So far, the so-called further explanation or purported justification provided by the EC in respect of the delineation only reinforces the fact that the EC is the stooges of Barisan Nasional or even the 14th party in BN.

I wish to point out the self-contradictory explanation provided by the EC in respect of the delineation exercise:

1.The EC claims that the re-drawing of the area into smaller areas is for the purpose of making it easier for the elected representatives to serve their constituencies.

If that were the case, why is there no re-delineation of the Parliamentary seats?  If the ADUNs need to have their constituency sized down-sized to provide better service, why is there no such similar need for the MPs and their parliamentary constituencies?

The true reason for the non-increase in the Parliamentary constituencies is that the BN does not have 2/3r…

新选区的划分,再次证明选举委员会只是国阵的工具,它的存在是为了确保国阵赢选举

(古晋5日讯)古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁称,新选区的划分,再次证明选举委员会只是国阵的工具,它的存在是为了确保国阵赢选举。 张健仁是针对今日选委会所公布的新州选区划分而做出如是抨击。 张氏说,选委会的重新划分选区,完全违反了民主投票的基本原则,即“一人一票一个价值”的原则。 就以古晋市的选区为例,原本已经是砂州第二多选民的选区,在新选区划分下,还加入一个巴都林当选区,选民人数从原来的5万2000人,增加至7万8000人。 “这种选区划分方式,死不要脸的摆明偏帮国阵,选举委员会倒不如直截了当加入国阵成为国阵的第14个成员党?” 张氏说,选委会这种不知廉耻偏帮国阵式的选区划分,是基于一个假设,即,乡区的土著会永远支持国阵的假设。 “根据过去的选举成绩,乡区的土著确实是支持国阵。但这并非一个永远不变的定律。” 他说,从过去的选举成绩显示,城市的土著票也已开始倾向反对党,西马各大城市如此,东马的情况亦然。 这是因为社会的进步,资讯的发达,网际网络的开发和通用,使到国阵的贪腐暴露无遗。 因此,当乡村的土著开始接触电脑网络时,他们也将逐渐看清国阵的贪腐,如何的剥夺他们享有基建设施、更好的医药和教育设施的基本权益。 张健仁说,除非国阵要永远的不让乡村人民接触电脑和网络,不然乡区人民总有一天也会有政治觉醒,而相信这一天已不远了。 张氏也说,民主行动党还是会继续其进军乡区的政治工作,包括“砂拉越之梦”(迎变砂州计划Impian Sarawak projects),把资讯带给乡区人民,让他们了解,国阵的贪腐,是导致乡村地区迟迟缺乏拨款开发和发展的主要原因。 “国阵还是会继续的贪污腐败滥权,乡村人民也会有醒觉的一天。 最终,选举委员会这不公平的举动,也只是枉做小人而已,国阵还是要倒台。”

SPR might as well calls itself the 14th party in BarisanNasional

It is now beyond all doubts that SuruhanjayaPilihanraya (SPR) is working for BarisanNasional (BN). The new delineation exercise that has just been announced today has dispelled all doubts that the SPR is just a tool of the BN, helping the BN to consolidate its position and power base. With such blatant disregard of the fundamental principle of fairness in the delineation exercise, the SPR might as well apply to join as the 14th political party of the BN. The new delineation exercise has defied the basic principle of one-person-one-vote-one-value. The most glaring anomaly is the Bandar Kuching parliamentary constituency which was already one of the most populous constituencies (52,000 voters), has an addition of BatuLintang state constituency, increasing the number of its voters by another 25,000 to more than 78,000. However, this disgraceful attempt on the part of the SPR to help BN to win more seats is based on the assumption that the Malay and Dayak voters in the rural area will fo…

Does Adenan has the political will to put a stop on dubious land deals for Barisan Nasional crony? Or is Adenan only paying Lip Service to Clean Governance?

(3-1-2015)

In the November, 2014 Dewan Undangan Negeri Sarawak sitting, I have submitted a question as follow: “  6.    To ask the Chief Minister and Minister for Resource Planning and Environment:  To state the rationale for the sale of State land Lots 128, 5489, 5490, 5491, 2301, 2304 and 5279 all of Block 225 Kuching North Land District (a total of 267.15 acres) to Standard Parade Development Sdn Bhd at a mere RM115 million.”
Those parcels of land are situated opposite Batu Kawah MJC Commercial Centre.  Anyone in the know about property market in Kuching will know that the market price for land in that area is in the region of RM2 million per acre.  For such large parcel of land with a total area of 267.15 acres in that area, the market price is easily RM500 million.

To my said question, I have received an answer from the Chief Minister which provides, inter alia:
“    Lot 128, 5489, 5490, 5491, 2301, 2304 and 5279 all of Block 225 Kuching North Land District telah dilulus untuk diberi…

砂州首长是否真的要停止廉价售卖政府地给国阵朋党公司,还是只是口惠而实不至?

(古晋3日讯)民主行动党古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁质问砂州首长阿迪南是否有真的意愿要停止廉价售卖政府地给国阵朋党公司,还是只是口惠而实不至。
张健仁透露,在去年11月的砂州议会,他提呈以下的一个问题:  “  6. 询问首席部长兼天然资源与环境部长,政府为何只以区区的1亿1500万令吉的价格,售卖Lots 128, 5489, 5490, 5491, 2301, 2304 and 5279 all of Block 225 Kuching North Land District (总共267.15英亩)的政府地给 Standard Parade Development有限公司?”
张氏说,这些地段是座落在石角路MJC商业中心对面。任何对于古晋地产稍微有认识的人都知道,那一带地的市价,大约是1英亩200万令吉。一片267英亩座落在那一带的土地,市价大概是5亿令吉。
张健仁今日在新闻发布会上展示首席部长针对他的问题给予的答案,关键的答案如下:  “ Lot 128, 5489, 5490, 5491, 2301, 2304 and 5279 all of Block 225 Kuching North Land District 以被批准为综合发展,包括店屋、陈列室型的商店、lock-up店、工业店、教育机构、办公室建筑及各式房屋。 除此之外,那些用以发展为空地、道路、沟渠、停车场、发电站、公共建筑的部分地段,将归还给政府。 因此,若考虑到这些因素,1亿1500万令吉的价格出售这片政府地段是合理的。”
张健仁指出,这种答案跟之前在泰益当首席部长时代,针对政府廉价卖政府地给朋党公司的问题所给予的答案,完全一模一样。
“有鉴于此,我们毕竟要问,阿迪南是否还将继续前朝政府以廉价售卖政府地给国阵朋党公司的文化?”

为何特别优待朋党
