RUU355 will always be a threat to our Secular Constitution so long as UMNO remains in Power

The 2-year episode of RUU355Amendment Bill (Hudud Bill) has exposed the frailty of secularism under our Federal Constitution. It has also exposed the danger of having an over-powerful UMNO who is able to play around with the secularism enshrined in our Constitution based solely on its political strategic consideration. 
Before Najib declared 2 nights ago that the Government will not adopt Hadi’s Hudud Bill, he has openly announced that the Government will adopt Hadi’s Bill as the Government Bill and tabled it in Parliament. Ahmad Zahid had also repeated such stand.
Then, why the U-turn on the part of Najib and Ahmad Zahid on this issue two nights ago? 
Basically, it is based upon political strategic consideration of UMNO and not about defending the Constitution. Otherwise, Najib would not have made the earlier contradictory announcement.
At present, PAS has only 14 MPs and UMNO 86. The 2 of them do not have more than 50% of the MPs in Parliament. Whether the other BN MPs will support the…

巫统执政,RUU355伊刑法课题还会重现

RUU355修正法案的事件,暴露我国联邦宪法的脆弱。 同时,它也再次的显示,一党独大的可怕,巫统可以纯粹的以其政治利益为考量,决定是否改变我国世俗国的宪法体制。

在纳吉前晚正式宣布政府不会接纳哈迪的RUU355修正法案为政府法案之前,他曾在巫统大会宣布政府将接纳该法案,并获得巫统大会的全力支持。副首相阿末扎希也曾数次公开表示,国阵政府将接纳哈迪的RUU355修正法案为政府法案,向国会提呈并寻求通过。

巫统因政治考量拒伊刑法

纳吉之所以会改变初衷,于前晚议决不接纳RUU355法案,最主要的原因是政治考量,而不是为了捍卫宪法世俗国体制的精神。若巫统是真的有捍卫我国宪法世俗体制的考量,纳吉也不会在之前的巫统大会上宣布要接纳该法案为政府法案。

巫统目前有86位国会议员,伊党则只有14位国会议员,两者加起来总共只有100位国会议员,不足以成为国会222国会议员中过半的议席。 若该法案真的被接纳为政府法案,国阵其他成员党的议员未必会全数跟着巫统的指示。 

就算国阵其他成员的的议员们会被逼支持通过这法案,但在即将到来的国选中,国阵极大可能会因为通过这法案而失去砂拉越和沙巴大部份人民的支持,进而失去联邦政权。

RUU355被搁置,只是巫统权宜之计

在这重重的政治因素考量下,纳吉最终改变初衷,放弃接纳RUU355法案为政府法案。 但,这决定并非永久性的决定,而只是暂时性的权宜之计。

以巫统一贯操控选区划分的手段,巫统在国阵内部的国会议席比例只会在每一次的选区划分中增加。 而国阵其他的成员党都不敢针对这不公平的选区划分,拂巫统的意愿。 在这不公平的选区划分政策下,巫统的势力只会每天的膨胀。 

可预见的,再过5年、10年或15年,巫统还是会再次的挑起这个RUU355伊刑法的课题。到时,巫统的势力极可能不需再看国阵其他成员党议员的意愿了。这是全马人民所处的隐忧。

只2政党支持伊刑法:巫统和伊党

纵观马来西亚政坛,只有两个政党支持RUU355修正法案伊刑法,即,伊党和巫统。伊党是以伊斯兰教义治国为理念的政党,巫统则是以种族主义(马来人至上)为治国理念的政党。 一个是供奉神权政治,另一个则是奉行种族政治。 

因此,RUU355伊刑法也正是这两个政党巩固它们政治势力的工具。 这两个政党,只要其中一个壮大,马来西亚的世俗宪制的体系就会面对极大的威胁。

伊党势弱,今后无作为

如今,RUU355伊刑法事件的演变,伊斯兰党一分为…

Former Sri Aman MP Jimmy Donald dies of cancer

Image
He was very learned in the Iban language, history and culture, having written several books.

KUCHING: Former Sri Aman MP Jimmy Donald passed away last night after a four-year battle with cancer. He was 72. His family was around him when he died at the Sarawak General Hospital here at 7.30pm. Donald, a former school principal, served as Sri Aman MP from 1995 to 2008. He made his political debut via the now defunct BN component party, Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak (PBDS). Following the deregistration of PBDS in 2003 following an internal party fight, Donald joined Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS), led by the current Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister James Jemut Masing. However, when the then PRS deputy president Larry Sng was sacked, Donald left with some party members to join PKR, serving later as the party’s state vice-chairman. He later contested and lost the state seat of Bukit Begenun in the 2011 state elections. Following that defeat, he joined the DAP and served as the party’s Balai Ringin cha…

DAP concerned about turn of event on Act 355

KUCHING: DAP is concerned about the turn of event regarding the stance of state Barisan Nasional (BN) on the amendment to Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965,  commonly known as Act 355. DAP Sarawak chairman Chong Chieng Jen  said the state BN under the late chief minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem had opposed the Bill, but the stance had now changed. “Initially, when the matter (Act 355) was brought up, Adenan made it very clear to oppose it. All Sarawak MPs should oppose but in the last two months, this clear position has changed. “Why is there a change on the stance on Act 355? Does it show that Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg is incapable and doesn’t have  the courage to stand up against the  wishes and policies of Umno?” Chong asked. Chong told a press conference at DAP headquarters yesterday, that the  recent development on Act 355 also clearly showed that PAS’ value to Umno exceeded ‘the value of all BN component parties’. “This clearly s…

‘Sarawak BN may waver over Hadi’s bill’

Image
If Sarawak has been assured that it will not be affected by the bill, it is a ‘clear-cut lie’, says state DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen.
KUCHING: Sarawak BN MPs may waver on their stand against Hadi’s bill if the government tables it as specifically applying to Muslims in Peninsular Malaysia, while excluding non-Muslims and East Malaysians. Sarawak DAP leader Chong Chieng Jen said if a deal had been struck with assurances given that Sarawak would be unaffected by the bill, that would be a “clear-cut lie”. “After the passing of this bill, like all other bills, all it takes is for one signature of one minister before it will be extended to Sarawak. It will no longer require another debate or resolution in Parliament before it is extended to Sarawak,” Chong said. He was responding to a front page report by Sin Chew Daily today, which stated that it had received a preliminary draft of the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 (Act 355) that will replace PAS president Abdul Hadi Awan…

思维肤浅者,言多必失

针对程明智符祥威3月10日的联合文告,批行动党肤浅,行动党实旦宾支部宣教秘书,沈瑶瑟表示 ,时至今日,程符还是执迷不悟,咬定消瘦的伊党被壮大,不敢谴责巫统接手伊党的修改355伊刑法的私人法案,反指行动党是推行回教国及伊刑罚的罪魁祸首。然而,谎言讲多了难免露出破绽,程符两人的文告,3 度记述行动党与伊党断交皆因伊党要落实伊斯兰国的理念,这是程符两人唯一符合事实的告白,这三段行动与伊党分手的史实,证明行动党是个有明确政治目标,有底线,有原则的政党,坚持维护国家宪法,捍卫马来西亚多元种族,多元宗教赖以和睦共处的世俗体制,不惜与违背协议的盟友切割,即使无法入主布城。符程的文告是在自掌嘴巴。盟党的变节被符程两人恶意歪曲为行动党立场反复无常。 如今巫统违背国阵共识了,程符两人说,退出国阵是逃避责任,留在国阵是要纠正成员党的偏差,请问符程人联多年来在国阵纠正过哪些偏差,为何越纠正越偏差,使到族人怨声戴道。上世纪的历史记载,华团精英,董总诸公,号召华社要打进国阵纠正国阵,口号轰动全国,震撼人心,击败行动党,顺理打进国阵,做了民政,马华的国阵部长,结果能纠正国阵的偏差吗?还是被国阵纠歪了?华社的政经文教权益还是每况俞下,华教之路越走越走越艰苦。
符程对我3月9日分析伊党被行动党削弱非被壮大之说,无可反驳,只好搬出历史来误导,他们说,经过3次战役,(文告提1995,1999,2008的国选)行动党使伊党势力如日中天,这套说词再度显示程符两人,对本国的政治历史无知。沈瑶瑟说行动党无功不受禄。1995年巫统首次分裂,巫统长驻丹州的国会议员,东姑拉沙里,也是巫统在丹州的首领,得群众的支持深根蒂固,反出巫统,成立46精神党,回教党得46精神党的支持夺取丹州。建立基地。 1999年,巫统二次分裂,副首相安华依不拉欣被革职,脱离巫统,组织公正党,展开波浪壮阔的“烈火莫熄”运动,深入马来乡区, 揭露许多巫统贪腐滥权的事件,成千上万的巫统党员,干部带动马来族群脱离巫统,在伊党出战的选区,把票托给伊党,伊党因而壮大,相对一党独大的巫统实力消弱,难道不是一件好事? 第12届308国选,城市选民不再相信国阵国阵的五花八门竞选糖果,拥替阵上台执政5州。执政5州的替代阵线政府,因为推行许多前所未有的利民政策,让人民惊喜连连,各党声望都是如日中天。民联的首长,亲民,不像国阵的州首长,总是优先考虑如何滥用人民的…

PAS shows no respect for rights of Sarawakians, says MP

Image
Sarawak DAP chairman says PAS doing disservice by turning importation of Islamic teachers from Peninsular Malaysia to Sarawak into a ‘Muslims against non-Muslims issue’, issue.


KUCHING: PAS lacks understanding of the situation in Sarawak and has no respect for the rights of Sarawakians, state DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen said yesterday.
He said this when commenting on PAS vice-president Idris Ahmad’s statement against his call to stop the import of Peninsular Malaysia Islamic teachers into Sarawak. Idris had also claimed that Chong’s stand would cause calamity to Pakatan Harapan (PH). The Borneo Post quoted Chong as saying: “For a start, I am surprised by the sudden show of concern by Idris Ahmad about the wellbeing of Pakatan Harapan. Has PAS leadership not been working together with Umno/BN of late to sabotage PH’s drive for a change of government? “Wouldn’t it be the case that the alleged ‘calamity to Pakatan Harapan’ will fit into the agenda of PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi …

Stop taking Islamic religious teachers from Peninsular Malaysia, Chong urges

Image
KUCHING: DAP Sarawak has called on the state government to take immediate action to stop taking Islamic religious teachers from Peninsular Malaysia to teach in Sarawak. In a letter dated Feb 3I, its chairman Chong Chieng Jen said the state Education Department with the consent of Welfare, Women and Community Wellbeing Minister Datuk Fatimah Abdullah and the state BN government had requested for, inter alia, 433 Islamic religious teachers from Peninsular Malaysia to teach in the state. “Even assuming that these teachers are here not to carry out conversion of children of other religions to Islam, but their understanding and notion of Islamic teaching and culture are very different from those in Sarawak,” he told a press conference here yesterday. To illustrate his point, Chong, who is Bandar Kuching MP, pointed out that the segregation of Muslims and non-Muslims was very obvious and strictly enforced in Peninsular Malaysia. “We do not see any halal food stalls in a non-Muslim eating o…

张健仁:违背砂利益 勿聘西马伊斯兰教师

Image
(本报古晋12日讯)433名西马伊斯兰教育老师即将前来砂拉越执教!行动党古晋区国会议员张健仁促砂政府马上停止引进西马伊斯兰教育老师,因为这是引进宗教极端主义,巫统政策、文化及影响的开端,违背砂拉越人利益。 同时是行动党哥打圣淘沙区州议员的张健仁今午在新闻发布会上指出,砂教育局今年2月3日致函联邦教育部,表明砂拉越缺乏中小学伊斯兰教育老师,因此同意接受其他州属师资,并已在由砂福利、妇女及幸福社区发展部长拿督法蒂玛陈赛明所主持之砂教育谘询理事会议上汇报。 根据该信函,砂拉越分别缺乏401名及32名中、小学伊斯兰教育老师。他认为,这些西马伊斯兰教育老师思想、文化与砂拉越穆斯林不同。他举例,在西马很难看到清真食物与非清真食物摊位在同一咖啡店出现,穆斯林也不会到非穆斯林的咖啡店用餐。 宗教极端主义入侵 他称,这是巫统的隔离政策,然而砂拉越却不受此影响,穆斯林与非穆斯林都可以同桌进餐,这种不同种族之间的和谐交流在砂拉越极之普遍。如果433名西马伊斯兰教育老师将他们的思维带进来,并灌输巫统版的教育,西马普遍发生的种族隔离方式、习惯就有可能出现在砂拉越。 他说,若是以1名老师对50名学生比率,每天将有2万学生被上述思维所影响,长期下去,砂拉越下一代穆斯林的思想将与巫统在西马所灌输的相同。因此他认为,引进433名西马伊斯兰教育老师之决定,是引进宗教极端主义,巫统政策、文化及影响的开端,违背砂拉越人利益。 砂4438人申请教师 与此同时,他表示,砂政府接受西马伊斯兰教育老师,是因为砂拉越缺乏此方面师资。但根据拿督法蒂玛陈赛明的另一项记者会,砂宗教局今年1月12日至27日在网上招募老师时,有4438人申请,若有10%人被录取,就足以填补空缺。 他质疑,为何上述申请者无法符合条件?他称:“这就是国阵的教育政策,若是不公平,砂拉越政府就要提出修改,而不是坦然接收。” 为了砂拉越利益,张健仁认为,政府应马上停止引进433名西马伊斯兰教育老师。他呼吁政府重新检讨4438名求职者条件,以他们的教师资格为衡量条件,而不是根据教育部所制定的标准。 转载自诗华日报

140朝鲜人无工作证 张健仁要求彻查

(本报古晋11日讯)“法律面前,人人平等”!古晋国会议员张健仁认为,政府应该针对176朝鲜人当中的140名无工作准证者事件,对有关违反法律的雇主或公司采取行动,彻底调查此事。 他希望,州政府在这件事情能秉持这项“法律面前,人人平等”的方式来处理,而不是因为一些公司的背景而采取不同的行动。 对付违法雇主或公司 他指出,根据1959/63年移民法令55B(1)条文,任何人若聘用一名或以上没有持合法准证的外籍人士,一旦罪成,针对每一名雇员,可被判罚款不少过1万令吉但不超过5万令吉或坐牢不超过12个月或两者兼施。 他说,相同法令的55B(3)条文又阐明,如果雇主在同一时间聘用超过5名的非法外劳,罪成者可被判坐牢不少过6个月但不超过5年及鞭笞不超过6下,而在相同法令55B(5)也阐明了公司的董事、经理和秘书也会面对同样的处分。 “既然州政府已经逮捕了140人,那么下一步应该列出违反法律的公司,以及所采取的法律行动。” 他透露,这些非法劳工大部分从事煤矿的采矿工作和建筑工作。众所周知,煤矿公司必须有非常广阔的人脉关系才能获得采矿执照。 他也提到,过去很多雇主都因为触犯了相关的法律而被对付,如果州政府认为该法律过于苛刻,不妨可进行修正。 转载自 诗华日报

商场送风机割伤指案 火箭争获警方调查

(本报古晋11日讯)针对本市某购物广场发生的儿童手指割伤案,古晋国州议员张健仁表示,在本身争取下,终于获得警方回应,表示将以刑事法典第338条文调查此事故。 他表示,本身是在上个月23日致函予砂警察总监,之后在本月1日获得砂刑事调查组主任拿督德夫古玛回函表示,警方经过研究事故的缘由后,将会进行调查,并以刑事条文338开案进行调查。 他说,在该条文中,任何人的极度疏忽而造成其他人受到伤害,若罪名成立,将会被监禁不超过2年或罚款不超过2000令吉,或两者兼施。 助小伤者家属索赔 至于民事诉讼的部分,张健仁表示,本身将给予全力的协助小伤者及其家庭进行索赔。 他进一步说明,根据医生报告表示,截至目前为止,小伤者的伤口已经愈合,然而,双指的指甲已经永久伤害,意味着不能再生长指甲。 “若要有指甲,只能进行微整容手术。” 他强调,游乐场中并没有任何的充气设施,其实根本不应该放这一台启动着的送风机,而且没有人看守,进而导致这起事故的发生。 他对此促请州内任何购物商场,尤其具备儿童游乐场的,都必须更加严正看待儿童安全的问题。 转载自诗华日报

25亿收购巴贡水坝,砂政府多付10亿?

Image
在砂州政府正式决定收购巴贡水坝(砂拉越水力发电有限公司)之前,3个阿邦佐必须回答的问题:

问题1 : 砂拉越水力发电有限公司的净资产只有15亿令吉,为何砂州政府却以25亿令吉的价格,购买只有15亿令吉净资产的公司? 为何要多付这10亿令吉的价格?

张氏展示砂拉越水力发电有限公司截至2015年12月31日的资产负债报告书。 该报告书显示,砂水力发电有限公司的总资产为76.8亿令吉,而其总负债则是61.5亿令吉。 因此,该公司的净资产只有15亿令吉。

他说,由于该公司只有一个顾客,那即是,砂拉越电力公司(SESCO),因此,该公司不会有什么“商誉”之类的无形资产。

“在没有无形资产的情况下,净资产就是有关公司的实值,即,15亿令吉。既然如此,那为何砂州政府要以25亿令吉的价格购买实值只有15亿令吉的公司?”

问题2 : 在收购砂水力发电公司之后,砂州政府也将承担该公司的61.5亿令吉的债务,再加上购价的25亿令吉,砂州政府每年所需付还的利息开支将会是多少? 除了利息之外,估计的外汇亏损是多少?

张氏指出,阿邦佐所说的收购砂水力发电有限公司的价格为25亿令吉是具误导性的。 这是因为砂州政府除了以25亿令吉买过该公司所有股权,砂州政府更需承担该公司的所有债务,而该公司的债务是高达60亿令吉。

“以60亿令吉的债务为例,一年1%的利息就是6000万令吉。 以政府债卷普遍的4%利息为准,一年利息就已是2亿4000万令吉。 这是非常巨大的利息开支。 政府有必要向砂州人民坦白。”

问题3 : 目前,砂电力公司(SESCO)是以每KWH单位电力6.7仙的价钱向砂拉越水力发电有限公司买电。 砂州政府收购了砂拉越水力发电公司之后,它的产电成本(包括利息的开支)将会是多少? 是否会比每单位电力6.7仙高,还是低?

张氏指出,SESCO目前是以每KWH单位电力6.7仙的价钱买巴贡水坝的电,再以平均每KWH单位电力30仙的价钱卖电给砂州的人民。 这是一门稳赚的生意。 SESCO这方面产电的成本就是每KWH单位电力6.7仙,没有其他的成本。

“但是,砂州政府收购了巴贡水坝(砂水力发电公司)之后,砂州政府将承担该公司的所有开支包括贷款的利息、操作和维修水坝和发电机器的开支、外汇起落的盈亏等。 这些将间接成为砂电力公司的产电成本。”

他说,如果这些开支所造成的产电成本是高过目前SESCO买电的价钱(每KWH单位6.7仙…

3 QUESTIONS THAT ABANG JO MUST ANSWER BEFORE THE ACQUISITION OF SARAWAK HIDRO

Image
Abang Jo’s claim that the acquisition price for the whole of Sarawak Hidro Sdn Bhd’s equity share is only RM2.5 billion is most misleading.

This figure is not the actual costs involved in the acquisition of ownership of the Bakun dam. The actual costs of the acquisition should be RM8.6 billion and could even be more.

As at 31-12-2015, the total liability of Sarawak Hidro is RM6.15 billion. When Sarawak Government acquires the shares of Sarawak Hidro, it also takes over the responsibility for the repayment of this RM6.15 billion debt.

Based on the financial report, therefore, the total costs for the ownership of the Bakun dam would be the purchase price of RM2.5 billion, the RM6.15 billion debt and the annual operating costs of the dam which, for the year of 2015, was RM600 million.

On the face of Sarawak Hidro’s 2015 financial statement, the net asset of Sarawak Hidro is only RM1.526 billion. Given that Sarawak Hidro has only ONE customer who is Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB), it has no inta…

伊刑法呈国会修改的来龙去脉

Image
针对国阵人联党主席及其旗下的新生代,一直輪流重复指责行动党在505国选时,呼吁人民支持伊党,养肥伊党,推动伊党提呈修改355伊刑法案,需向人民道歉。

行动党实旦宾支部宣教秘书沈瑶瑟认为,人联党的新生代,因为不敢反对巫统支持修改355伊刑法私人法案,眼见全国党团群起反对,担心选票流失,心慌意乱,只能老调重弹,颠倒是 非,希望能以假乱真,掩饰人联党做为巫统帮凶的真面目。

同时,人联党也希望借污蔑行动党来替其巫统主子摆脱一手推动伊刑法的违宪行为,淡化国阵政府回教化马来西亚的一系列违宪法,反民主的施政。

沈瑶瑟指出,505国选,行动党基于以下情景,呼吁人民支持回教党,乃符合民情,削弱极端宗教势力的创举。
1. 人民十分厌恶半世记来,在国阵统治下,巫统一党独大,一族独尊,贪腐滥权,骄横跋扈,让朋党操弄国家经济,掠夺国家资源,滥用公款数以亿计,以至国债儡儡,民生陷困。 人民坚信,唯有改朝换代,建立朝野轮替治国的两线制,才能有效的推行廉政肃贪, 挽救经济往下沉淪的马来西亚。
2. 要改朝换代,就必须联合马来族群众中反巫统的伊党,争取伊党认同民联的斗争目标。 当年,伊党党员大会通过支持民联橙皮书的治国方案,以实现福利国取代回教国的斗争目标,搁置伊刑法。
3. 在开明派主政下的伊党,甚至开除其雪州的行政议员,哈山阿里因为后者不认同以福利国取代回教国。

基于当年的政治现实,行动党呼吁人民支持伊党,是希望并鼓励伊党走向中庸开放,旨在壮大民联抗衡巫统的国阵,壮大人民的力量,才有希望改朝换代,民意才会受到尊重。 同时,也避免伊巫联盟,让极端宗教与极端种族主义联合主政,破坏我国世俗国的体制。

行动党的斗争目标光明磊落,策略高瞻远瞩,没有欺骗人民,没有错,为何要道歉?

【505,伊党是被削弱,不是被壮大】

505行动党的策略导致极端宗教势力被削弱,极端宗教的堡垒被突破。 在追求全民团结,抗拒极端宗教与极端种族主义分裂国民的战线上,可说是一位大功臣。

事实上,伊党并没有因505的战役而壮大,而是被削弱。

2008年308选举,伊党赢得23个国会议席,并在吉打和吉兰丹执政。 2013年,伊党只赢得21个国会议席,并失去吉打政权,在其老巢吉兰丹也输掉6个州议席。

505一役,伊党明明是少了国会议员,也少了州议员和州政权。 人联党居然说505国选,行动党壮大伊党。 人联党的政治逻辑是从何而来? 难道人联党的逻辑是,国会议员越少…

Chong doubts state government’s ability to fight for autonomy

Image
KUCHING: Bandar Kuching MP Chong Chieng Jen wonders how Sarawakians can have confidence in the state BN government fighting for autonomy if it cannot even fight for a teaching position in a government school for a fellow Sarawakian. “I am referring to the matter relating to Wong Wang Yuen’s application to be a teacher in government school. Wong has obtained a Bachelor Degree in Education from Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (Unitar) in 2010. “She then applied through Jobs Malaysia and SPP (Education Service Commission) website to be a teacher in government school. As there was no positive response to her application, she then took up a Master Degree in Sultan Idris Education University and obtained a Master Degree in Education (Mathematics Education) in 2013. “With the said Master degree, she continued to apply, year after year, to be a teacher in government schools (Pegawai Perkhidmatan Pendidikan Gred DG41) through the Jobs Malaysia and SPP websites,” he said in a press statement yesterd…
