More and more peaceful street protest/demonstration needed here in Sarawak.

Teringat semula kata2 seorang sahabat dari Semenanjung tiga tahun lepas, “Orang Sarawak perlu di budayakan dengan budaya Tunjuk Perasaan/Demonstrasi Jalanan untuk menuntut hak rakyat Sarawak”

Thanks God, a successful demonstration today in Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu and Miri to protest agaisnt 30, 000 Bangladeshi recruited to work in Palm Oil plantations all over Sarawak.

In the future, a statewide protest should be organised to demand for a change in Land Code (To recognise Pulau Galau/Pemakai Menoa) as part of NCR land, Land Policy, to demand for 20% Oil Royalty, to demand for full compliance of Malaysian Agreement 1963, to demand for scrapping of all 52 damn dams, to demand for “Anak Sarawak” to filled up the federal agency jobs and many others. God bless Sarawak!

Dont be emotional Daud? 

Filed under: Public Issues,Religious Freedom — Pengayau @ 12:55 am

Minister in charge of Islamic Affairs (In Secular State?) Daud had reminded all parties not to be too emotional on the issue of a 13 years old Dayak school girl from SMK Lutong being converted by by his 2 teachers who happen to be from Malaya.

Im just wondering what would be his reaction if it was the case of a Muslim being converted to Christian?

The school teacher explained that the girl herself interested in Islam and had requested to be converted ane even choose her own Muslim name.

Even if is true which to be fair, i truly believe its true, the teachers should aware the facts that minor below 18 years old cant change his religion without his/her parents consent. That is the law.

Even if they cant or dont understand the Laws, by right they have moral obligation at least to inform, or try to get the consent from her parents though i believe they wouldnt get it

Another issue, by right they should know this is a very sensitive matter

Even if the girl wanted to convert to Islam, if i were they,  i would just ask the girl herself to go to the nearest Jabatan Agama Islam and i dont need to involved in this matter.

It seems like the 2 teachers failed to be sensitive or failed to respect the multireligious, multiracial harmony in Sarawak!

Adenan should walk the talk. Now is the time for him to show if he’s really CM for all Sarawakians regardless of Race and Religion since he himself has declare publicly that he’s CM for all

The 2 teachers must be transfered/deported back to Malaya.

Adenan can do this by pressuring State Education Department which fall under Federal list

Or he can use our Autonomous Power over Immigration. This, he need not to consult State Education Department

This is to send a strong message to the so called “Troublemaker” (In Adenan own words) as this is not the first time we heard about Dayaks converted to Islam by tricks

The 2nd option, Adenan can exercise his absolute power over Immigration

According to Malaysian Insider, the 2 teachers were given desk job at Education Office

According to the Star, they were suspended

Which one is true? Suspended from teaching in SMK Lutong and given desk job at Education Office in Miri?

This is misleading. Why should they given a desk job? They should be suspended or given unpaid leave and then deported back to Malaya!

Taib should pay higher bonuses to staff


The Sarawak government should give its civil servants who earn less than RM1,000 a month at least RM700 as bonuses for the coming Hari Raya.The sum should be more than that given by the Penang government because Sarawak’s revenue is six times more than Penang’s, said Sarawak DAP secretary Chong Chieng Jen

Challenging Chief Minister Taib Mahmud, Chong said: “The state government should give more than what Penang gives.

“Penang gives RM600 as bonus to its civil servants while the federal government is giving RM500.

“Sarawak must give RM700 because Sarawak’s revenue is six times more than that of Penang.

“So far, the state government has not made any announcement whereas the federal government and other states have done so,” he said when commenting on the bonus to be paid to civil servants

Chong added that the Sarawak government should by now be declaring the bonuses.

“The state possesses plenty of natural resources and gifts from God. Such wealth should be shared among the people of Sarawak,” he said.

He also reminded the people that the Taib-led government had recently displayed its generosity when it paid an expatriate chief executive officer RM1.2 million as a bonus.

“I am sure our people deserve better than that,” Chong said.

2pm, July 9th, Stadium MERDEKA: Malaysia’s moment of truth

Filed under: Public Issues — Pengayau @ 4:55 am

“I’m not afraid to take a stand, Everybody come take my hand, We’ll walk this road together, through the storm, Whatever weather, cold or warm, Just let you know that, you’re not alone, Holla if you feel that you’ve been down the same road”

Malaysians from all walks of life have travelled a very long road to reach this defining point in our nation’s history. With less than 24 hours to our intended peaceful gathering, our resolve to walk the last, most difficult mile as one united people in pursuit of clean and fair elections and a better Malaysia for all is firmer than ever.

Our reason for gathering is pure and simple – to demand the electoral roll be cleaned, that the postal voting system be reformed, that indelible ink be used, a minimum 21 day campaign period be instated, free and fair access to media for all be provided, public institutions be strengthened, and for corruption as well as dirty politics to be stopped.

The authorities have put obstacle after obstacle where they only needed to provide sincere cooperation to win the trust and confidence of the people. Having faced half hearted offers of stadiums, arrogance regarding meetings as well as denials of permits, arrests, detentions and so much more, we feel that we have done all that is humanly possible to demonstrate sincerity and good faith in dealing with the government – but we have only been met with reversed decisions and stone walls.

There are no walls however, that will arrest the advance of the cause of peace and justice. Come the 9th of July, we will uphold our constitutional right to converge peacefully on Stadium Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur.

No government agency has any right whatsoever to prevent Malaysians from exercising their freedom of movement and access to our capital city. No threat or intimidation can overturn this fundamental truth.

Malaysians have now seen for themselves the degree of paranoia and lack of principled leadership that seems to have gripped the government. It is thus all the more imperative that patriotic Malaysians rise now and take this stand together to save Malaysia from slipping further into this insane darkness.

Since the beginning of Bersih 2.0, we have witnessed nothing but the utmost bravery and commitment to peace and justice demonstrated by ordinary Malaysians from every walk of life. Inspired by this example, the Bersih 2.0 leadership reiterates our own unyielding commitment to our shared cause, and to being at Stadium Merdeka at 2pm tomorrow. We will meet at the carpark, and trust that the doors will be opened for us.

This is Malaysia’s single most important defining moment in recent history, and we are fully confident that the rakyat will heed the call to safeguard the principles Malaysia was founded on and together ensure that we pass down to our children a nation that is just, democratic and united in love for one another.

Pengurangan subsidi bagi menguatkan ekonomi negara: Najib

2010/07/15

ALOR SETAR: Datuk Seri Najib Razak berkata, kerajaan perlu mengurangkan subsidi bagi menjimatkn perbelanjaan kerajaan dan mengurangkan defisit fiskal supaya pasaran dunia dan dalaman lebih yakin dengan kekuatan ekonomi negara.

Perdana Menteri yang juga Menteri Kewangan berkata, penjimatan perbelanjaan itu juga akan digunakn untuk pembangunan negara yang akhirnya memberi faedah kepada rakyat.

Beliau turut memberi jaminan pengurangan subsidi akan dibuat secara minimum supaya tidak membebankan rakyat.

Najib berkata demikian selepas merasmikan Mesyuarat Perwakilan UMNO Bahagian Kuala Kedah di sini, sebentar tadi.

Malaysia muflis tahun 2019

Pada 27 Mei lalu, Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Idris Jala dilaporkan berkata, Malaysia akan muflis pada 2019 jika kerajaan tidak memotong subsidi dan bergantung kepada pinjaman.

Katanya, hutang Malaysia akan meningkat kepada 100 peratus daripada GDP pada 2019 d- daripada 54 peratus sekarang jika subsidi tidak dipotong.

Another Fatal Blow to Taib!!


Explain your wealth, DAP tells Taib

By Joseph Tawie

KUCHING: DAP has added more pressure on Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud to respond to allegations that his family owned prime pieces of real estate overseas that together are worth billions of ringgit.

DAP secretary Chong Chieng Jen, speaking at a press conference here, noted that Taib had not bothered to either confirm or deny reports on the Internet in the last few months that indicated that he and his family were extraordinarily rich.

Many of the allegations originate from the website Sarawak Report

According to the site, the Taibs own properties in Canada, the United States, Britain and Australia.

It said that in Canada, the family’s Sakto Development Corporation owned the twin glass towers and a swanky shopping complex at Preston Square and a multi-story residential building in downtown Ottawa.

On top of that, said Chong, the private residence of Taib’s daughter in Ottawa was rated the second most expensive house in the area, worth about 10 million Canadian Dollars.

He gave these other details: that the family owned an estimated US$80,000,000 worth of office blocks in Seattle and San Francisco, a few blocks of commercial and luxury flats in central London, and the Hilton Hotel in Adelaide.

Chong, who is also the MP for Bandar Kuching, said: “All these reports about Taib’s family owning hundreds of millions or even billions of ringgit’s worth of properties have been circulating in the internet for quite some time, in fact since the Sibu by-election in May 2010. Yet Taib has kept mum.

“As the Chief Minister of Sarawak for the last 30 years, Taib is accountable to the people of Sarawak to clarify the matter,” he said.

Chong posed the following five questions for Taib to answer:

  1. Are the reports on Sarawak Report true?
  2. What is the salary of the Chief Minister of Sarawak? How could Taib’s children have had such huge amounts of money to buy overseas properties?
  3. Other than the properties reported on the Sarawak Report website, are there any other properties owned by Taib’s family members or their companies? How much are those properties worth?
  4. Why is Taib’s family so rich and yet, the state of Sarawak is the fourth least developed state in Malaysia?
  5. If the reports were untrue, what action will Taib take against the makers of the reports?

“It is time for Taib to provide the answers to the above questions because all Sarawakians are interested and have a right to know the answers,” he said.

Same shit different day


 

Taken from The Malaysian Insider

KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 — Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Abu Kassim Mohamed today intends to push the Najib administration members to declare their assets publicly.The Cabinet members now declare their assets to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak annually but it is not made public.

“Declaration of assets is very, very important,” Abu Kassim said at the 15th Malaysian Law Conference at the KL Convention Centre here.

The nation’s top graft fighter was responding to a suggestion from former Bar Council president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan that the assets of politicians — particularly those in the Cabinet — and the judiciary be made publicly available for the sake of transparency.

“I agree with you… Everybody — for example, the minister or the judiciary — has to declare,” he told Ambiga.

Following the thumping Barisan Nasional (BN) took in the March 2008 general election, then-Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had directed Cabinet members to declare their assets in a bid to appease a public that was increasingly sceptical of BN’s capacity for reform.

Ministers, as well as deputy ministers, were required to fill in asset declaration forms with the MACC’s predecessor, the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA), with the intention of making the information available online for public scrutiny.

However, Abdullah backed down from this plan after facing stiff opposition from ministers, who felt that it would be an invasion of privacy for the public to know their financial worth.

Abu Kassim earlier assured Ambiga that he was willing to investigate cases involving Cabinet members impartially without any regard to their political affiliation.

“I can assure you, if there is a case… against any Cabinet member and we didn’t investigate, I’m willing to go down,” he declared, by way of assurance.

He added that he was, in fact, already investigating Cabinet members for alleged corrupt practices but stopped short of elaborating.

MACC has come under sustained fire after its January 2008 start for what detractors claim is a poor record of prosecution and ineffective fight against corruption.Read more here

Subsidies : “the time has come”

By Syed Akbar Ali

Dato Seri Idris Jala was kind and brave enough to meet the Bloggers on Wednesday June 2nd for over three hours. I say brave because some other Ministers are shying away from talking to the Bloggers. I cant blame them because the Bloggers frequently serve piping hot stuff about their Ministries.

The session with Dato Idris was quite blunt – the Minister held up quite well but the Bloggers did prevail on a few points.

The first thing Idris clarified was his statement that the Government would go bankrupt in 2019 IF it continued borrowing as it has over the past 10 years (12% per annum) and if the GDP also grew at the historical 10 year rate (3% – 4%). And ceteris paribus meaning everything else remaining unchanged. This is a basic ‘economists’ assumption.

The GDP is now at RM600 billion. The Government debt is about half that amount. Growing the debt at 12% per annum would take the Government debt to over RM1.0 trillion by 2019. But growing the GDP by say 3% or 4% may not match the Government debt by 2019.

The danger that Idris is pointing out is that when a Government’s debt exceeds the GDP of the country’s economy, then the taxes generated by a GDP of that size will not be able to pay the interest on the Government debt which exceeds the GDP.

Say you earn RM5000 a month, but you borrow RM8000 a month. You will be in trouble. Firstly you may not even be able to pay the interest on the RM8000 a month debt. Then most certainly you will not be able to pay the principle amount of your debt.

This is what Idris was trying to point out. The problem is that the Government (despite the presence of PR specialists at the briefing by Idris) has a very poor communications team.

Even Ministers have problem understanding other Ministers. Adek Awang – another one of those Deputy Ministers who is shy of meeting Bloggers – made a statement that the Government will not go bankrupt despite what Idris Jala had said.

“KOTA BAHARU: Malaysia will not go bankrupt in 2019 even if a subsidy totalling RM74bil a year is continued, said Deputy Finance Minister, Senator Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussein.”

I think here Dato Seri Idris Jala is suffering an over reliance on his consultants. He has to touch base with his fellow Cabinet members first.

There is much rational for removing the subsidies, which according to Idris totals RM74 Billion a year. This figure is also disputed. Some folks say that a more realistic figure is closer to RM30.0 billion a year. But Idris’ main concern is that the Government needs to save its neck because there is not enough money available to the Government to pay for everything.

My view is that we should try to remove all subsidies because they distort the market and make us blind to the real cost of just existing in this world. The distortion created by lifelong subsidies will eventually come home to roost on us all. Firstly they create non competitve behaviour. Subsidies are a ‘silent killer’ like diabetes because until generations pass, we will not know how much initiative and competitive behaviour has been killed off by access to easy subsidies.

But how you remove the subsidies, after over 40 years of their implementation is very important. We cannot have the ‘cold turkey’ treatment. Yet we do need a deliberate but well planned exit mechanism.Read more here

Its not that we dont understans the Goverment position with the current economic downturn but this BN Government had somehow WASTE those money for unnecessary spending!!!

Planning to built a new Parliament Building with the cost of 800 Million and yet they can renovate it with only 150 Million.Waste of Public Funds to Corruption such as the PKFZ scandal.To spend hundreds of millions for F1 Team 1Malaysia and many2 more!!Read the Auditor General Report!!

When it comes to this situation,the Governmet would ask the Rakyat to change their lifestyle and spending!!Well,im ok with that but how much Rakyats can spends and change?

How much the Government has WASTED???

Who should change in spending actually?The Rakyats or the Government??

Why always put the burden on the Rakyat while the Government can save a lots more on their spending at the first place?

Bear in mind that this reduction of subsidy is in stages,meaning to say that it will reduced the subsidy from time to time

But then again,the Government has failed to control and monitor those controlled items such as Sugar.

Just a simple question,why non of our past and present Leaders has never ever has the guts to request for an increase for our Oil Royalty?Bear in mind,that 5% is 34 years ago but now it is not relevant.
 
On Government spendings,like i said,look at PKFZ Scandal,look at Auditor General Reports.It is there ,the wastages is there.By reducing the subsidy is some sort of damage control but then again,the damage could be avoided by spending the money wisely.Correct3x say Linggam,Betul3x say Upin&Ipin

But then again,it goes down to Political Will.Once again,PKFZ Scandal,who denied it?60% of Federal Fund which has kenak Tapau by some Contractors in Sarawak,who denied it?Komisen 500 Million for Perimekar Sdn Bhd for Scorpene Submarine(KD Atlantuya and KD Razak Baginda),who denied it?New Parliament Building(Cadangan) to cost 800 Million,who denied it?The scrapped bridge to Singapore,who denied it?

And the Mother of all Corruption,Taib Foreign Properties,who denied it?This is all Wastages and Leakages
