Opposition questions meager returns to landowners from Sarawak JV scheme

Image
Landowners who participated in the Sarawak government's joint venture scheme had made less than RM8 per month for every acre of land in the past 19 years.  Shocked by such miserable returns, Kota Sentosa state assemblyman Chong Chieng Jen, who derived the figures from a reply given in the state legislative assembly yesterday, said Sarawak Native Customary Right (NCR) landowners had clearly been exploited by state government agencies.  “They can definitely do better by just planting potatoes and plucking wild vegetables from their land to sell in the market, rather than participating in the JV schemes with state government agencies,” the Kuching MP and state DAP chairman said. The written reply was pertaining to Chong’s question on the detailed breakdown of returns from the NCR land joint venture projects, in which landowners had partnered with the Sarawak Land Consolidation and Rehabilitation Authority (Salcra), and the Land Custody and Development Authority (LCDA), since 1994.  It st…

Umno-friendly PAS won’t get support in Sarawak, says DAP

Image
PAS will not get any support from Sarawakians in the upcoming state polls, Sarawak DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen said today.

 “It's now beyond all doubts that PAS is an ally to Umno. No sensible Sarawakian will support Umno or PAS,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

 “They are free to contest. Let the voters decide, but I don't think they can garner any support,” he said, commenting on PAS's intention to field candidates in seats contested by DAP. 

Sarawak PAS commissioner Jofri Jaraiee had said they would contest at least 11 seats during state polls next year, including those traditionally contested by DAP. 

He reportedly said it was the prerogative of Sarawak PAS to contest in DAP seats as it was not part of the new coalition Pakatan Harapan. 

Despite breaking off with DAP, PAS maintains cooperation with PKR. 

Sarawak PAS had said it was prepared to consult with PKR in accordance with a decision by the party's central committee to maintain political cooperation with PKR.

Sarawak DAP raises red flag over unauthorised party symbols in Kuching

Image
Sarawak DAP has lodged a police report over the unauthorised use of party flags around the state capital Kuching.

 “We don’t want the Election Commission or Barisan Nasional to have any excuse to take any legal action against the party,” Chong Chieng Jen, the DAP state chairman, said after lodging the report today. It is an offence under election laws to raise party flags in public places outside the campaigning period. 

Chong said party leaders had not authorised the use of the flags.
He said the DAP flags raised in various public places were different in size than the ones normally used by the party. This morning, DAP flags were seen on a hornbill statue at a roundabout on the road near the Kuching International Airport, the pedestrian street along Jalan Batu Lintang, in a fenced off area in Reservoir Park and few other public places. Chong, who is the Kuching MP and Kota Sentosa assemblyman, urged those responsible to take down the flags. Refusing to point fingers, Chong urged suppor…

National Security Council Act, an Act to further curtail Sarawak’s Autonomy and position. Yet it is supported by the Sarawak BN

Image
The passing of the National Security Council (NSC) Act is yet another strong proof that the BN Sarawak has to toe the line of Najib and its UMNO counterparts in Parliament. It also exposes the hypocrisy of SUPP.
The SUPP President Dr Sim has on numerous occasions issued press statements expressing his objection to the said NSC Act on the ground that the provisions are unfair to Sarawak. Yet, at crunch time, when the Bill was put to vote in the Parliament, he and his BN Sarawak colleagues were all in full support for the Bill. It is with the BN Sarawak Members of Parliament’s support that the NSC Bill was passed by the Parliament and became an Act. It is clear that the provisions of the NSC Act are aimed to counter the autonomy demands of Sarawak. Under the NSC Act, the members of the National Security Council comprises the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, Defence Minister, Home Affairs Minister, Communication and Multimedia Minister, Chief Secretary to the Government, Chief of D…

《国安会法令》再次证明,砂州国阵(包括人联党)只是巫统和纳吉的拥护者

Image
《国安会法令》的通过,再次证明,砂州国阵(包括人联党)只是巫统和纳吉的拥护者。 在砂州权益和纳吉/巫统利益之间,砂国阵只会选择支持纳吉/巫统利益。 它也再次的暴露人联党的双面人角色。
张氏指出,人联党的主席沈桂贤在报章上反对该法令,但是,到了上议院,他却和他的国阵同僚们一起支持,并通过该法令。 针对本月22日在国会上议院通过的《国家安全理事会法令》,张健仁表示,这法令基本上就是国阵联邦政府要对付砂拉越目前要求主权的最有力武器。但遗憾的是,砂州的国阵上下议院的国会议员,到了最关键时刻,都异口同声的支持该法令的通过。 张氏指出,在这项法令下,国安理事会的成员是首相、副首相、内政部长、国防部长多媒体通讯部长、全国政府秘书长、全国警察总监和三军总司令。而这理事会有权力,以国家领土主权、社会政治稳定、国家经济稳定、国民团结的考虑,宣布国内任何地区为“安全区”。 “一旦一个地区被宣布为‘安全区’,军队或警察将有绝对的权力管制该地区,包括在没有法庭庭令下进行逮捕任何可疑人士、搜查或占据任何房子、店屋和产业以及使用任何他们认为合理的武力对付抗议份子。 这些侵犯基本人权的行使权,都将是由该‘安全区’负责人做决定。” 张氏指出,这所谓公布‘安全区’的权力,就是当年公布‘戒严’的权力,而按照该《国安会法令》,这权力将由以首相为首的国安理事会去做决定。 张氏列出几个非常现实的例子,联邦政府可运用这法令来对付砂拉越甚至强杀砂州的主权:
1. 砂拉越州政府要求20%石油开采税,在该法令下,首相则有权力以‘20%开采税若给予砂州,它将影响联邦政府的收入进而影响国家经济稳定’为由,运用该法令对付砂拉越及任何提出20%开采税的人士。
2. 砂拉越政府要以英语为第二官方语文,首相则有权以‘它将影响国语地位及影响国家的社会政治稳定’或以‘影响国民团结’为由,运用该法令对付砂拉越。
3. 砂州政府要求更多的自主权,首相也有权以‘影响国家社会政治稳定’为由,宣布砂州为‘安全区’进而以军事统治砂州。
4. 一些甚至争取砂拉越独立的言论,首相则有权以‘影响国家领土主权’为由,宣布砂州为‘安全区’进而以军事统治砂州。 “这《国安会法令》,基本上就是以不民主的手段,来压制砂拉越主权运动的一个法令。 反对党的国会议员(除了一半以上的伊斯兰党国会议员)都反对该法令的通过。 但是,国阵的国会议员,包括砂州国阵的国会议员…

揭露:砂政府发展金拨款,每年十几亿令吉还砂州贷款。

Image
民主行动党古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁今日揭露,砂州政府透过其属下5间子公司,在过去几年,总共借了17亿令吉和33亿7300万美元的贷款(不包括砂能源公司和砂经济发展局的贷款),而这些贷款,都是由砂州财政的“黑洞”(“政府供款给所批准的代理机构”基金)户口偿还。

“这5间公司是,Sarawak Capital Assets有限公司、SSG Capital Resources有限公司、SGOS Capital Holdings有限公司、Equisar有限公司和Sarawak Technology Holdings有限公司。” 

根据州政府在今届的州议会所提呈的“政府供款给所批准的代理机构”基金户口财务报告,从2011年至2014年,砂州政府的发展金拨款,平均每年用以还债的数目是约16亿令吉。

以下是该户口的财务报告书所列出的数字:

年份-偿还政府欠债的数目
2011-1,603,684,801.03
2012-1,601,528,773.96
2013-2,005,791,252.49
2014-1,465,369,532.17

张健仁透露,自2006年,砂州政府每年平均都从砂州政府的发展金拨了十多亿令吉,进入这“政府供款给所批准的代理机构”基金户口,其中包括2016年砂州财政预算案,也拨了14亿令吉1867万令吉进入这户口。

张氏表示,他从2010年开始就不断的追问这笔钱到底用在那里,但砂州政府都三缄其口,不肯透露这户口里的钱的来龙去脉。 直到2013年,经过国家稽查司发出警告书之后,砂州政

Billions of Development Allocations to Repay Debts of Sarawak Government’s Subsidiary Companies

Image
The Sarawak Government has been using Billions of Development Fund to repay the debts of 5 of its subsidiary companies, namely Sarawak Capital AssetsSdnBhd, SSG Capital ResourcesSdnBhd, SGOS Capital HoldingsSdnBhd, EquisarSdnBhd and Sarawak Technology HoldingsSdn Bhd.
Since Year 2006, the Sarawak State Government has, on average, allocated more than RM1 billion of its Development Fund into an account called “Government Contribution Towards Approved Agencies” Trust Account, including a sum of RM1.418 billion in the 2016 Budget. The State Government has been keeping very secretive on the operation of this Account and has evaded many questions asked by me since 2010 in respect of its operation. It was not until 2013, after a reprimand by theFederal Auditors-General that the Sarawak State Government tabled in DUN Sarawak, the Financial Statements of this Account for the years 2006 – 2010. However, those financial statements were all one-page statements where no information was revealed to w…

3点破绽,阿德南实续效忠纳吉。

Image
民主行动党古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁指,阿德南所说的“若纳吉在一马发展公司被定罪,他将重新考虑是否效忠纳吉”,根本就是一个模棱两可的立场。


张健仁表示,这种话,有讲等于没讲,根本就是一个没有立场的立场。

他指出,纳吉今天所身陷的丑闻,除了一马发展公司之外,更严重的是26亿令吉的现款进入他私人户口而他又无法讲明这笔钱的来龙去脉,是谁给的,以及这笔天文数目的巨款去了哪里。

“在一个有尊奉法治的民主国家,当一位政治领袖被揭露有如此巨额的现款进入其私人户口而又无法交代清楚其来龙去脉,早就已经引咎辞职了。 但是在马来西亚,反而是揭露这丑闻的人和调查这案件的官员被对付,其中包括潘检伟被禁止出国和进入砂拉越。”

张氏说,阿德南的话,明眼人一看就知道是在敷衍耍太极。

张健仁指出阿德南这番话的几点破绽证明阿德南根本就是盲从的跟着纳吉:

1. 如果纳吉真的被定罪,纳吉已不能再当首相了,也没有人会效忠他了。 因此,讲‘如果他被定罪,会重新考虑继续效忠他’的话根本就是多余的。

2. 现今的情况是,纳吉虽然还没定罪,但他已违反了基本的清廉和透明施政的原则。 如今,连以贪污至上的巫统,都已开始越来越多的基层党员都无法容忍纳吉的行为,但是阿德南还要等到法庭判纳吉有罪,才“重新检讨是否继续效忠于他”。 这根本就违反阿德南口口声声所说的要清廉施政的原则。

3. 今时今日的纳吉,独揽大权,牢牢控制整个国家的执法和行政机关。 别说要他被法庭定罪,就连将他提控上法庭都没有可能,除非他下台。 阿德南是聪明人,不可能不知道这现实。

“基于以上3点,可见阿德南根本就没有意愿要与纳吉划清界线。他昨日在州议会所说的,只是为了要应付砂州选举,表面上迎合普遍砂州人民讨厌巫统和不认同纳吉的心态,实质上确实继续效忠纳吉和巫统。”

张氏说,纳吉在这26亿令吉门丑闻爆发后,不只没有像其他有尊严的政治人物般引咎辞职,反而更变本加厉,不断的对付涉及暴露和调查这事件的人士,更甚的是,他还在国会通过《2015年国家安全理事会法令》,把宣布某地区紧急状态的权力,也揽在手上。

张氏也说,纳吉的继续专政和滥权,也是造成外资对马来西亚的制度失去信心的因素之一。 他也是造成马币贬值的其中原因之一。

张氏强调,阿德南这种模棱两可的立场,只会助纣为虐,帮助和支持纳吉走向更独裁更霸权的制度。


Adenan’s conditional “Re-consider loyalty to Najib” statement is in fact a Re-affirmation of his loyalty to Najib

Image
Adenan’s announcement yesterday that “if Najib is found guilty of 1MDB-related offences, Sarawak BN will re-consider their loyalty to him” is full of rhetoric and amounts to nothing.

There are 3 points in his statement that show clearly that Adenan is and will remain the strong supporter of Najib:

1. If Najib is found guilty, Najib will no longer be the Prime Minister and no one in BN, be it Sarawak or nationwide will be loyal to him anyway.

2. As is the current situation, although Najib is not found guilty in Court, what he has done, especially his RM2.6 billion scandal, defies all principles of good and transparent governance. Even in the corrupt UMNO, there are now growing numbers of grass-root members who can’t tolerate his misdeeds and are openly calling for his resignation. 
Yet, Adenan has to wait for a conviction by Court for him to re-consider his loyalty to Najib. This clearly goes against Adenan’s talk about clean and good governance.

3. It is obvious that Najib is now having fu…

张健仁再次遭到禁足!

有动议王 Motion King 之称的高级部长黄顺舸今日提呈动议禁足砂劳越行动党主席张健仁,事发缘由是张健仁在2016年砂州财政预算案的计算法是“魔术师会计法”而引起高级部长的不满而将他禁足,这也引起了众议员的错愕。

张健仁昨天才因为和平集会法令而被控上法庭,今天又被禁足,他到底是犯小人还是因为砂州选举近了而国阵要将他击垮?

砂州行动党副主席黄培根谴责,议会保护的不是人民的权益而是国阵的霸权。

而砂州行动党副秘书叶海量也说,代议士有权力在议会监督人民的声音,不应该被禁足。

砂州国阵成员党在州选前就已经无视民选代议士,如果这次州选再让他们赢得大部分议席的话,那么他们还会将人民看在眼里吗?

Copperfield remark - DAP's Chong suspended from assembly

Image
- malaysiakini 15/12/2015 Kota Sentosa Assemblyman Chong Chieng Jen has been suspended from the Sarawak state assembly beginning this evening for the rest of the current sitting which ends tomorrow. Speaker Mohamad Asfia Awang Nassar made the decision after accepting a motion moved by Sarawak Second Finance Minister Wong Soon Koh to suspend Chong when the assemblyperson, who is also Sarawak DAP chairperson, refused to withdraw his reference to the state budget as a 'David Copperfield accounting'. Earlier, when interrupting Wong's winding-up speech, Chong insisted that the state should be a ‘deficit budget’ but had been 'magically' turned into a surplus budget by what the accounting profession called 'creative accounting' and referred it as 'David Copperfield accounting'. When asked by Asfia if he meant to say that the state budget tabled by Chief Minister Adenan Satem last week was 'an illusion', Chong insisted to refer the state budget as …

Chong digantung sifatkan bajet S'wak seperti akaun David Copperfield

-malaysiakini 15/12/2015 Anggota Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Kota Sentosa, Chong Cheing Jen digantung daripada menghadiri sidang Dewan Undangan Negeri Sarawak hari ini kerana menyifatkan Bajet Sarawak seperti akaun ahli silap mata David Cooperfield. Speaker Datuk Amar Mohamad Asfia Awang Nassar membuat keputusan itu selepas menerima usul yang dikemukakan Menteri Kewangan Kedua Sarawak, Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh untuk menggantung Chong yang juga pengerusi DAP Sarawak setelah beliau enggan manarik balik rujukannya kepada bajet negeri sebagai perakaunan David Copperfield. Terdahulu semasa mencelah ucapan penggulungan Wong, Chong berkata bajet negeri adalah defisit tetapi secara magis bertukar menjadi bajet lebihan seperti apa yang dipanggil juruakaun profesional sebagai akaun kreatif dan merujuknya sebagai akaun David Copperfield. Disoal sama ada beliau bermaksud bajet yang dibentangkan Ketua Menteri Tan Sri Adenan Satem minggu lalu sebagai ilusi, Chong enggan mengaku tetapi bertegas den…

指砂预算案为“魔术账目” 张健仁遭州议会禁足两天

Image
《转载自 当今大马》 15/12/2015 砂州行动党主席兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁今日在州议会内抨击,2016年砂州预算案盈余为“魔术账目”,结果遭州议会禁足2天。 据《马新社》,在砂州第二财长黄顺舸总结辩论时,张健仁要求打岔,并声称砂州预算案应为赤字,而非盈余。 张健仁形容,砂州预算案就像是“大卫考柏菲账目”(David Copperfield Accounting)。 由于张健仁拒绝收回言论后,黄顺舸提呈动议,要求禁止张健仁踏入州议会,直到本季州议会完结。 32票支持,12票反对 州议会议长阿斯飞亚(Mohamad Asfia Awang Nassar)批准动议,并允许记名投票。 最终,州议会以32票赞成,12票反对,1票弃权,通过禁足张健仁动议。 本届州议会将在明日结束,因此,张健仁只会禁足两天。

Two Sarawak DAP reps claim trial to ‘illegal’ Bersih 4 rally

Image
KUCHING, Dec 14 — Sarawak DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen and his party colleague Julian Tan Kok Ping were both charged with taking part in an illegal street demonstration at the Sessions Court here today. Bandar Kuching MP Chong and Stampin MP Tan both pleaded not guilty to committing the offence under Section 4(2)(c) of the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012 before Sessions Court judge Amelati Parnell who released the duo on a RM5,000 bail each with one surety. Chong and Tan, together with others still at large, were accused of taking part in the street procession between 2pm and 3pm on August 29, starting from a site in front of Hilton Hotel to Jalan Borneo, Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, Jalan Tabuan, Jalan Ban Hock before arriving at Song Kheng Hai Rugby Ground, the venue of the Bersih 4 rally. Under the law, the duo can be fined up to RM10,000 upon conviction. A fine of over RM2,000 by the court may see them barred from holding their elected posts or holding any posts in the DAP as required by elect…
