Road to SMK Tambulion Not done -Sabah Kota Belud



There is great disappointment from the community staying in and around the Kg. Piasau and Kg. Tambulion, the Mukim Woriu area near Kota Belud town here for not seeing their compulsory access road being sealed by the government after making many announcements, and all seem to be empty promises again.




The Sabah DAP Local Government and Housing Bureau chief Edward Ewol Mujie with the Infra structure bureau chief John Lee Kim Seng visited the rough road to check on the real situation.

They said the road is just some 8km long from one end to the other, with SMK Tambulion in the middle. There is no reason for the road not being sealed. The people from these kampongs, the teachers and the students have to travel daily on this compulsory access road. The road condition is very bad, full of dust during hot days, and muddy during rainy days.



Since the last time when the condition of the bad road was highlighted by the Sabah DAP in the newspapers, the Kadamaian assemblyman Herbert Timbun Lagadan has promised that the road will be completed and sealed by end this year. Now it is so many months passed, and there is no sign of work starting. The thousands of people here continue to face problematic roads.



The people here also wanted the government to keep their promises made during the last general election, especially on the upgrading and sealing of the 27km Jalan Sayap to be expedited. The people here said they are having enough on empty promises, and they really would consider changing the government, at least they can have a new government who cares about them.



Edward and John told the BN government not to continue to make excuses and further delay the upgrading and sealing of the Jalan Sayap, Jalan Piasau-Tambulion, and many other roads in Kota Belud district. We wonder how much longer the people here have to wait on, hopefully not until the next general election.



Edward and John,

前往丹布连国中(SMK Tambulion)的马路没有被修建



居住在哥打毛律附近甘榜比绍(Kg. Piasau),甘榜丹布连(Kg. Tambulion)及乌柳区 (Mukim Woriu)周围的居民针对政府多次在报章上声明说将修建该道路,但是却没有看到政府开始实行修建的工程,可能又是一张空头支票,对此他们深感失望和不满。



沙巴民主行动党地方政府及房屋局主任爱德华慕吉和基本设施局主任李金星前往该处巡视该马路的实际情况后说,该道路只有八公里长而丹布连国中就在中间,该道路没有理由不被注重。 这些甘榜的居民,学校的教师和学生们每天必须使用该段路。 该道路的状况非常糟糕,在炎热天充满灰尘,在雨天到处都是泥泞。



自从该路面情况由沙巴民主行动党在报纸上带出时,哥打麻安(Kadamaian)州议员赫伯特丁布(Herbert Timbun Lagadan)已承诺,会在今年底前将该道路提升并铺上沥青。 现在多月已过去,却没有任何开工的迹象。 这里上千的居民必须继续面对该恶劣道路的问题。



该处的人们希望政府能提升二十七公里长的沙业路(Jalan Sayap),以履行他们在上次大选中所作出的承诺。 这里的人们表示,他们经常得到一些政府空洞的承诺,因此他们将会考虑更换一个可以照顾及关心他们的新政府。



爱德华和李金星说,国阵政府不要继续找借口拖延,应立即提升沙业路(Jalan Sayap)和衔接甘榜比绍(Kg. Piasau),甘榜丹布连(Kg.Tambulion)的道路,及其他许多该地区的道路。 我们不知道还要等待多久,希望不需要等到下一次大选吧。

Is Chanyai Subsidiary Titles valid? kota kinabalu sabah


Many people in Sabah had expressed their disagreement towards the statement made by the Director of Sabah Land and Survey on the issue of mistakes that appeared on the subsidiary titles of the Chanyai Villa in Likas, Kota Kinabalu. The mistake had caused the sub-tittles holders a lot of trouble and headache.




Osman claimed that the sub-titles are valid because these are registered at the State Land and Survey Department, according to the Sabah Land Ordinance, and thus can be mortgaged, transferred, placed under caveat and used as a legal tender in any lawful dealing.



After reading the statement made by the Director Osman, it is regretted that the director has not admitted the mistake and the negligence on the part of his department, but he turned to blame it on the developers, the district surveyor and the licensed surveyor. He further said that the mistake was not the fault of the department, and they are professional enough not to make such mistake. The director further elaborated that the department in order to rectify the mistake will have to go through a series of tedious procedures. These involve the developer and the unit owners have to apply to the department, Assistant Collector of Land Revenue to do a rectification under Section 117 of the State Land Ordinance. The department will then do a land enquiry to make an order on the tittles one by one. He also mentioned that to rectify anything on the titles will have to go through the department, the collector of land revenue, a land enquiry, and the high court. There will be further complication if the tittles are charged to the bank.



Dr. Hiew viewed this case as not only a silly mistake but also a gross negligence on the part of the Sabah Land and Survey Department. From the statement made by the Director Datuk Osman Jamal, it is very clear that it is no point to push the blame and pointing fingers to the developer, the licensed surveyor and the district surveyor. We all can see that the last person to certify and to issue the sub-titles is none other then the department itself. The department should have checked thoroughly every words, sign, number, drawing and plan there is before endorsing it to be a valid legal document. A land title is an important legal paper, some even worth billions of ringgits. Therefore, it should not be taken lightly.



If the sub-titles of the Chanyai Villa are valid as claimed by the director, is it true that we can over look the mistake on the tittles? How can this be? The legal firms may not think so. A legal document consisting of gross mistake may give rise to legal complication, especially the unit on the left became the right.



The director and his department are advised to be more careful to handle all these important documents at all times. We can not afford to have any mistake on our sub-titles. May be there are cases which bear mistake on the titles.



The department is further reminded to expedite and speed up the process on the issuance of sub-titles for the many pending housing, some already waited for 20 over years.

陈尧庄附属地契有效?



沙巴州许多人对沙巴土地测量局总监对里卡士陈尧庄附属地契问题的声明表达异议。 这项附属地契上的错误已经增添许多人的麻烦和头痛。



奥斯曼声称,该些存有错误的附属地契是有效的,因为这些都是由土地测量局根据沙巴土地条例所登记的,因此凡是抵押,转让,扣押和作为任何合法交易的都能使用。



奥斯曼总监所作的发言,就其部门的疏忽,很遗憾的是他没有承认其错误,他还把责任归咎于发展商,持牌测量师和区测量师。 他进一步表示,错不在该部门,他们非常专业,不会作出这样的错误。 总监进一步阐述,该部门如要纠正错误必须经过一系列的繁琐程序。 这些涉及发展商及业主单位须向土地税收局申请更正,并依照土地条例第117则来进行整理修改。 该局会进行土地调查,以使到该些地契获得重新更正。 他还提到,纠正的程序都必须经过该局,土地税收局,土地调查,及高等法院。 如果该些地契已经抵押在银行,将会造成更复杂的手续。



邱博士认为这不仅是一个明显的错误,也是沙巴州土地测量局的重大过失。 从总监拿督奥斯曼贾迈所发的言论,很清楚地他不该手指指向发展商,持牌测量师和区测量师。 我们都可以看到,最后认证和签发该些附属地契是他的部门本身。 他们应彻底检查所有文字,符号,数字和图片才能给予通过及签证,然后才可成为一个有效的法律文件。 地契是一份重要的法律文件,有的甚至价值数十亿马币。 因此,这些文件的签证不应该掉以轻心。



如果陈尧庄的附属地契依照土地局总监所说的是有效的,那么我们可以不管其错误的存在,而当其根本没有问题。 律师行可能不这么认为这样,法律文件中存有错误,可能会引起法律上的困难,尤其是地契上所注明的左边单位成为右边单位。



总监和他的部门应该更加谨慎地处理所有这些重要文件。 我们不能接受任何在地契上的错误,相信至今还可能有其他类似的案例,这将带来许多的麻烦。



该局受到提醒,应加快有关发出许多悬而未决的附属地契,有些已经等了二十多年。

Why civil servants are not working hard?



It is undeniable that the former British Colonial Master had left Sabah with a legacy that is, a good administrative system. After the “frogging” incident of February 1994 and the takeover of the government by UMNO, the Sabah Civil Service is now basically dominated by one single race. The Kadazans and Chinese are now just sprinkling few. Now it is almost impossible for Kadazans and Chinese to join the civil service. The calling for more non-Malay to join the civil service is probably just lip service. For another 10 years, the whole civil service will be controlled by one race. Borneonization is meaningless when only one race is dominating the civil service.




It will be interesting to see what the KPI for the Sabah Civil Service will indicate, if and if it is evaluated by an independent committee.



DAP has raised the issue to Sabah having no State Attorney for the past eight months. Despite the former AG having resigned, he is still retained as a legal consultant for the State Government or the Chief Minister. At this moment on one knows his role in the AG chamber.



Another glaring example is the re-appointment of the Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Finance. He is now coming to 60 years old and is well past his retirement age of 56. What is so special about him that deprived others from having the opportunity to serve as Permanent Secretary?



The other example is the District Officer of Beaufort. He has already attained the compulsory retirement age and again re-appointed to the same position. Again what is so special about this D.O that deprived other people the opportunity to serve as D.O? Of course, this D.O happens to be a close relative (nephew) of the Chief Minister.



It is therefore not surprising why the moral of the Sabah Civil Service is at the lowest. We hear time after time of government Ministers advising and urging the civil service to work hard and be responsible. If the UMNO-BN government does not politicize the civil service this advice does not arise.

公务员的工作效率差劲



行动党艾德温博西医生说当年英国人离开沙巴州后,留下了一个完整的管理系统 。 之后因为一九九四年二月发生政治‘青蛙’事件后,造成由巫统接管沙州政府。 沙巴州的公务员基本上是传统由本土的土族占大多人数,分由卡达山人和华裔为主。 现在卡达山人和华裔几乎是很难成为公务员,尤其是担任高职。 政府现在宣布要更多非土族加入公务员行列,可能只是说说而已。 再过多十年,整个公务员的结构将只属于单一种族。 “多元种族的国家”将是毫无意义,如果只由单一种族的公务员垄断。



民主行动党指出沙巴在过去八个月没有州律政师,尽管前律政师已辞职,但他却仍保留为州政府和首席部长的法律顾问。 没有人知道他在律政厅扮演着什么角色,因为他并无律政师的职权。



博西医生说其中一个例子是重新委任财政部秘书的职位。 现任的财政部秘书即将60岁,已远远超过56岁的退休年龄。 他到底有什么特别之处,使到他剥夺其他人来担任该秘书职位的机会?



另外一个例子是保佛县议会的县官。 他已经达到了法定的退休年龄,却再次被重新委任回同样的职位。 他又是什么特别之处,他也剥夺其他人的机会,使到他人无法升级。 是不是因为恰好这位县官与首席部长有近亲的关系(侄子)?



所以这就是沙巴州公务员士气低降的主因。 我们多次听到部长们建议并敦促公务员努力工作和负责任,到底有何用? 巫统所控制的国阵州政府利用公务员,及将其政治化,他们这样的作为并不光明。

DAP Penampang wants Penampang District Officer to settle the Bolitas cemetery problem quickly



Penampang: The Chairman of Kg. Nagasiba Condolence Association Penampang Mr. Marsillius Tiwol has approached DAP Penampang Dr. Edwin Bosi to highlight a long standing problem concerning the Bolitus cemetery. A visit to the cemetery was made on 6th September 2009.




According to Mr. Tiwol, the cemetery has been trespassed. This person had leveled about 0.5 acres of the cemetery which is next to his house, and built two houses which he is currently renting out and was confirmed by one of the tenants during our visit. In leveling the land the person has desecrated at least two graves of which he was found guilty by the Penampang Native court and fined a “sogit” of one buffalo. Mr. Tiwol confirms that the fine has not been paid yet.



Basically, the Kg. Nagasiba Condolence Association wants the person to remove the buildings and respect the Native court by paying the fine and compensating the relatives of whose graves were desecrated.



I have seen the correspondence of 10th December 2008 between Mr. Tiwol and the Penampang District Office requesting for a quick and amicable solution to their problem. I have seen correspondences between Mr. Tiwol and the political leaders such as YB Tan Sri Bernard Dompok (14th July 2008) and Mr. Lu Yen Tung, the Peoples Development Officer for N19 Kepayan (3rd November 2008) seeking their good office to settle this problem. The latest letter is on 30th July 2009 to the Chairman of the JKKK Kg. Nagasiba. I was informed by Mr. Tiwol that he has made a Police report on this matter. Edwin regretted there was no immediate taken in-spite of Native Court order.



This is a case where the Native Court has handed down its decision. Therefore, DAP Penampang urges Mr. William Sampil, the Penampang District Officer to do the right thing by exercising his jurisdiction and authority to settle this issue once and for all, and the illegal building to be demolished.

民主行动党要兵县议会尽快解决甘榜坡里达(Bolitas)墓地的问题



甘榜拿伽西巴慰问协会(Kg. Nagasiba Condolence Association)主席马西鲁士迪沃(Marsillius Tiwol)向兵南邦行动党艾德温博西医生投诉有关该处坡里达(Bolitas)墓地受到霸占的问题。 艾德温博西医生于2009年9月6日前往巡视该墓地。



根据马西鲁士说,该处的墓地已被擅自闯入。 该擅入者已把靠近其房屋约0.5英亩的墓地夷为平地,并且在该地建立两座房子,目前该两座房子已作为出租用途。 该擅入者把土地夷平后至少波及两座坟墓,过后已被兵南邦土著法庭定罪及遵照土著习俗法令(sogit)以一头水牛抵罪。 马西里士说该擅入者至今还没有履行该土著法庭的刑罚。



甘榜拿伽西巴慰问协会希望该擅入者拆除该两座建筑物及履行其刑罚赔偿给两座坟墓的亲属们,以示尊重土著法庭的判决。



艾德温医生审查了马西鲁士和兵南邦县议会于零八年十二月十日的文件,要求解决他们坟场土地霸占的问题, 此外他还出示写给丹斯里伯纳东波(08年7月14日)及甘拜园发展官卢远东(08年11月3日)的信件,请求他们解决该项问题。 最近的一封信是09年7月30日写给甘榜拿伽西巴乡保团(JKKK Kg. Nagasiba),同时被告之此事已经向警方备案。 艾德温医生觉得非常遗憾,该事件尽管已由土著法院判决,但当局却没有立即采取行动处理,反而任凭此事拖延下去。



土著法院已宣判该案件。因此,民主行动党敦促兵南邦县官威廉善比(Mr. William Sampil),立即解决该项问题,及把该些违章屋全部拆除。






sabah kota kinabalu Klinik Kesihatan Luyang needed more car parking space



The general public have again seek assistance from Sabah DAP to make the Health service department and the government to improve the car parking shortage problem faced by the people who visited the Luyang Polyclinic. There were practically not enough car parking spaces here in this important clinic in the area. The visitors have to park their cars outside the clinic area on the surrounding road side, on the pedestrian walkways and in front of the housing estates. These people often receive traffic police and DBKK summons for illegal parking.




Sabah DAP Local Government and Housing Bureau chief Edward Ewol Mujie and The Infrastructure Bureau chief John Lee Kim Seng visited the Luyang Polyclinic and saw the car parking situation and described it as terrible. There are really not enough parking spaces here for the staffs and visitors. There seems to be no plan to improve the situation here as yet.



John Lee said why in the first place when they design the heavily utilized and visited clinic, they did not think of the car parking problem. Now the people are being summoned, who is to be blamed? He said the Polyclinic is built in a very congested area, it made the motorists difficult to look for parking any way else but have to park on the pavements and corners. This always attracted the traffic police and the DBKK enforcement officer to come here to fulfill their duties and quota on issuing summons.



Edward suggested that the authorities like DBKK, Police, Health Ministry, JKR and all the others should sit down immediately to sort out this problem. This is of vital importance especially when the sick is concerned. How can you let the sick person to walk from far before he can reach the clinic, especially in the hot sun and rain? The matter is getting worst day by day, so please don’t sit on it.



Edward and John proposed to cover the storm drain, remove the road shoulder walkway and use part of the open space in front of the polyclinic to provide more parking spaces for the visitors. This can be easily done if the authorities are sincere enough to help the people here. The BN government is careless in many ways and this is a typical example. They could have thought of the car parking problem in the first place, and why now have to spend more tax payers’ money to rectify the mistake caused by them. Therefore, if they (BN) can not do this simple task, it is better to change for a better new government.





Edward and John Lee



路阳政府诊所需要更多泊车位



亚庇市民向沙巴行动党寻求援助,要求卫生服务局和政府部门改善该政府诊所停车场不足的问题。实际上该处是个重要的诊所,但是没有足够的停车位让前往诊所的人士泊车,他们必须到该诊所外的周边道路,行人走道上和房屋区前胡乱违法停泊他们的车辆。这些人经常收到警方及亚庇市政厅的违例泊车传票。



沙巴民主行动党地方政府及房屋局主任爱德华慕吉和基本设施局主任李金星前往视察该处的诊所的泊车情况,并认为确实非常糟糕。 该处真的没有足够的停车位让工作人员和病患者泊车。政府似乎没有任何计划来改善该处的情况。



李氏说,为何当初设计该诊所计划时,他们没有提供足够的停车位,现在让民众面对该问题,是谁的过错? 他说,诊所建立在一个非常繁忙地区,因此一般车主难以寻找停车位,不得以才将车辆停在人行道上和路旁。 这吸引交通警察和市政厅执法人员来到这里,以履行他们的职责而向违规者发出传票。



爱德华表示,市政厅,警方,卫生部,公共工程局及所有其他有关当局应马上坐下来解决这个问题。这尤其是对病人来说是很重要。因为病人要走很远,才可到达该诊所,特别是在炎热的阳光和雨淋的情况下。 这个问题越来越糟糕,当局不可坐而不视。



行动党建议该处前面的大水沟加上水泥盖,改建人行道为泊车位和使用的诊所前的一部分空地,改建为停车场。 这是很容易做到的,只要当局有诚意帮助人们。国阵政府许多方面做的很不好,这只是一个典型的例子。 他们以前就应该解决泊车位的问题,为什么现在必须花费更多纳税人的金钱来纠正他们所造成的错误。 因此,如果他们(国阵)如果不能做好这简单的工作,我们最好考虑更换一个新政府。

Land and Survey Department under fire again


t \he owners of the apartment from Changai Villa, Likas, Kota Kinabalu, approached the Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Dr. Hiew King Cheu for help on their invalid subsidiary titles of the 145 units of apartment where they have stayed in more then 20 years.






The subsidiary titles were issued during 2003 on every unit of the apartments. It is found out that the titles bear a terrible mistake on the location plan of each and every unit. The tittles are deemed to be invalid and can not be used as a legal tender by the legal firms, banks and financial institutions, and local authorities. This gave rise to worries and upset to all the owners of the apartments, especially to those who intend to sell their units.



According to the owners the subsidiary titles which were issued on the 18th of August 2003, and later they found out that there is a mistake in the floor plan diagram attached in the tittles. The storey floor plan of the units were not marked and numbered correctly. The marking showed the opposite marking of the units (see plan attached). Thus, the mistake landed the document doomed to be null and void. It is impossible to use the Subsidiary tittles as a legal document due to the mistake. When Dr.Hiew contacted several lawyers, they confirmed the same. This is also giving rise to problems to the electricity meter, water meter and house assessment too, due to the opposite location.



The developer when approached by the MP, said they have informed the Land and Survey department on the matter, and hope the department can rectify the mistake as soon as possible. They have submitted all the necessary document and drawings for the amendment. So far there was no news from the department, so they have to wait on.



Dr. Hiew asked why such mistake can appear on the important document like the subsidiary tittles. This is a silly mistake that caused so much agonies and inconvenient. The Land and Survey could have checked thoroughly before issuing the tittles to the developers and owners. It is 6 years now, how much longer will the department need to rectify the tittles? May be another 6 years?



Dr. Hiew urges the land and survey department to be careful in handling all the land tittles to ensure that there is no mistake, and there are many more such cases happened before. How come the department cannot do their job professionally and ensure mistake free? The Changai case is a typical example of their professional negligence, which brought to the people all the headaches and losses. They should not sit and wait on the Changai Villa tittles, and should immediately reissue the amended subsidiary tittles to the owners without further delay. Just a note of reminder, “the people are very angry”!





Dr. Hiew King Cheu, KK MP















土地测量局再次受到批评



亚庇里卡士陈尧庄公寓业主向亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士申诉,要求他协助处理145个单位的公寓附属地契问题,他们在该公寓居住已有二十多年,到现在才发现其附属地契是错误及无效的。



该附属地契是在二零零三年发出给所有公寓屋主。 后来发现到该些单位的位置图是完全相反。 因此,该地契被视为无效并且不被律师楼,银行,金融机构和地方当局作为任何买卖或贷款的用途。 这引起了该公寓的屋主疑虑和不安,特别是打算出售其单位的屋主。



根据一名屋主说,该附属地契是于2003年8月18日注册后并分发给他们,后来他们发现该附属地契位置附图问题。 该公寓单位平面图的标记和编号都不正确。 该标记显示是属于对面的单位(见图),该不正确的标记导致该地契变成错误无效的文件。 邱博士联络本党的法律顾问团,他们也向他确实该项事件。 错误的附属地契也将导致该公寓的电表,水表和门牌税因反方向的位置而造成诸多问题。



邱博士联络上该公寓的发展商,他们说已通知土地测量局有关该错误,并希望该部门能尽快纠正这些错误。 他们已提交所有的修正文件和图则。 到目前为止,并没有土地测量局的消息,因此他们必须继续等待。



邱博士问为什么会出现这样的错误在附属地契的重要文件里。 这是一个很严重的错误,造成了许多烦恼和不便。 土地局应该在分发该些附属地契给屋主之前,就必须彻底检查。 至今已六年,该部门还需要另一个六年来纠正这些错误的地契吗?



他敦促土地局在处理所有的地契时需要小心,以确保没有错误,因为在过去的确有许多这样的情况发生。 为什么该部门不能专业的做好自己的工作,并确保没有错误发生? 该陈尧庄的事件是他们的疏忽。 这是人民平白蒙受烦恼和损失的典型例子。他们应该立即诸于行动把所有陈尧庄的附属地契重新修订并分发给业主们。 在此他提醒土地局,“人民已感到非常愤怒”!

Where is the Sabah State Attorney General?

it has been eight months now since the former State Attorney General, Roderick Fernandez tendered his resignation citing personal reasons. Unfortunately, until today, even after Fernandez was reengaged as the legal advisor to the State government, there has been no appointment of a new Attorney General to replace Fernandez.

This has inevitably caused grave concern besides curiosity among the general public in the state especially those in the legal fraternity, over the highly irregular manner the State government handle such an important position in its administration, where instead of appointing someone qualified as the new State Attorney General, it decided to reemploy the former State Attorney General who had resigned voluntarily.

What’s actually going on here? Why is the State government reluctant to appoint someone qualified to replace Fernandez but seemed to be more keen and comfortable to reemploy Fernandez as a legal advisor who has now earned the title of ‘Shadow AG’. Is this due to the State government having difficulty in identifying a qualified candidate for the post or because of some ‘unique reasons’ that the State government is not telling us? The State government should come clean on this as it involves public interest and the public have a right to know.



Many people are now questioning Fernandez’s voluntary but abrupt resignation at the height of the Mazhu statue court case, whether it was really due to some untold personal reasons or due to some other untold reasons.

The absence of an Attorney General in the State government can bring about a dire consequence to the State administration. The people might have to shoulder and bear all the consequences and pay for a heavy price later.

The public’s concern over the non-appointment of a new State Attorney General is a valid one, as currently there are so many legal matters to be attended to, some of which are already in the court, and yet there is no Attorney General to look into all these. If all the legal matters are allowed to carry on without being scrutinized, processed and approved by the Attorney General, the state government may end up with piles of problems later. Who is going to bear the responsibilities eventually?

There are many legal cases where the State Government is being sued, and who is going to defend the State government in the absence of the State Attorney General? There are so many government legal documents including agreements and contracts with the private sector to be executed and signed daily, who is doing the checking, scrutinizing and approval? Can one guarantee that all the documents are mistakes-free?

Therefore, it is not only irresponsible but absurd that until today the State Government is still unable to appoint a new Attorney General for the State.

It is time for the Chief Minister to enlighten the people of Sabah as to why till today the post of the State Attorney General is still being left vacant.

The people of Sabah should be brave enough to stand up to whatever injustices perpetuated by the Government or its agencies. They can always seek justice and even compensation on their sufferings and losses inflicted by the Government in court. In the past, they are scared of and worried about suing the government, but now the situation has changed.



The people now are better educated and know what are their rights and they are not afraid of taking the government to court. Sabah DAP deemed this as a positive development to serve a stern warning and reminder to the Government and its relevant authorities, that they must no longer treat the people as semi-literate if not fools. They must serve the people with full responsibility, creditability, accountability, and transparency.
It was also disappointing to note that the Sabah Law Association (SLA) had been conspicuously quite about this issue all these while, although it in one way or other also affects its members.

Sabah DAP would like to call upon the SLA to make their stand on this issue known to the public, its members especially, and to act accordingly in the best interest of its members and the general public as a whole.

为何沙巴州没有律政师?

至从沙巴州前律政师罗德里菲南德士八个月前以个人理由请辞,直今他已被委任为州首席部长的法律顾问,但政府一直都没有委任一位新的沙巴州律政师,以填补该职位。

这已造成了公众人士的关心,更加引起法律界的高度关注。 一般上都认为政府不应该在反常的情况下让如此重要的职位空置着。 他们应该立即委任有资格的人选来接任律政师的职位,但相反地却让自动辞职的前律政师成为其法律顾问。为什么州政府不愿意聘请有资格的人选来填补该职位,这到底是怎么的一回事?是否因为他是个“影子律政师”(Shadow AG)的原故。 还是因为州政府无法找到该职位的适合人选,或是因为某些‘特殊原因’? 当任何涉及公共利益的事件,州政府应该要有所交待,好让公众人士了解该情况。



很多人问有关罗德里在高度关注的马祖庙案件之时突然辞职,这是否意味着他有‘难言之苦’,唯一解脱的方法就是辞职不干。



沙巴州政府律政师职位在这情况之下悬空着,将会带给州行政许多严重问题。 人民可能必须要承担这些后果和代价。

民众很关注新律政师的人选,因为目前有很多法律上的问题必须受到处理,有些已经在法院中,但却因为没有律政师,造成许多的案件必须要拖延。 如果法律问题不进过律政师的审议和处理而直接了案,最终必定会引发更多的问题。这将由谁去承担和负责呢?

许多州政府被起诉的案件中,在没有律政师审核的情况下,到底由谁来为州政府辩护这些案件呢? 有许多政府与私营公司签署的合约和法律文件,这将由谁来进行检查,审议和批准,以确保所有的文件都无错误呢? 这是一项政府不负责任,荒谬的的做作,该是时候首席部长拿督慕沙阿曼要向沙巴人民有个交待,解释有关州律政师职位空置着。


沙巴人民应该勇敢地站出来抗议政府或其机构长期存在的不公平事件。 他们可以在法庭上寻求公正,并且要求政府赔偿所造成的损失。 在过去他们都害怕控诉政府,现在已有众多人士把政府控上法庭。如今人民已有好的教育,明白他们的权益,而且他们不再害怕把政府告上法庭。沙巴民主行动党认为这是一个好现象,有利以提醒政府和有关当局,他们不可欺负及当人民是不识字和无知的傻瓜。 他们必须要负起责任,以诚信,公信和透明的工作态度来为人民服务。



同样令人失望的是看到沙巴律师公会(SLA)对该项问题一直都保持沉默,沙巴民主行动党要求沙巴律师公会向民众对仍然悬空着的律政师职位的问题表明其立场。 该举将会为其会员和大众取得有关方面的利益。


Beaufort Walk-about and Buka Puasa with Muslim DAP members

The Sabah DAP leaders Dr. Hiew King Cheu, Edward Mujie, Edwin Bosi and the Beaufort DAP members, Jinlin Abdul Rahman, Ong Boon Hoo with other members conducted a walk-about and meet the people session before attending the breaking of fast with DAP Muslim members in Beaufort town yesterday on the 18th September. The group arrived in town and spent 2 hours walking round the market and shops to greet the people on the Hari Raya Adilfiltri festive season.




The DAP team was warmly welcomed by the Beaufort folks, especially some expressed their gratitude towards the DAP and its KK MP to visit them in Beaufort. They said they hardly see any BN YBs or MPs paying them a visit in town, and they have so many problems needed attention and remain unsolved. There are complaints about the roads, drains, land, flood and not forgetting the dropping economy in Beaufort. Dr. Hiew said he has taken note of their complaints and will help to solve their problems to his best. DAP team will conduct more trips to the Beaufort areas and its kampongs to listen to their problems, and the people may contact the local DAP leaders for assistance too.



During the breaking of fast with the Beaufort DAP Muslim members, Dr. Hiew said he thanks the Muslim community in Sabah for the support given to DAP. This definitely will help to generate a strong force to pave way for a change and for a new Sabah government by Pakatan Rakyat, the people’s government. The DAP always believes in a “Malaysian Malaysia” and we have no race and religion boundaries.



Sabah DAP wishes all our Muslim leaders, members, supporters and friends a Selamat Hari Raya Adilfiltri.

Sabah DAP English Oldies Karaoke singing competition a success “An event to unite the people”


The English Oldies Karaoke singing competition held on the 15th of September at the Atlantis Seafood Restaurant, organized by the Sabah DAP youth team was a smashing success. Its organizing chairman Teddy Yang Chan Tze and also the Sabah DAP Youth Chief said the competition attracted some 500 audiences. The 16 contestants who sang and performed so well that everyone truly enjoyed the old English songs from the 70’s. The competition is aimed at bringing back old memories and especially for the lovely old songs that loved by many. Teddy also thanked the people who had helped to make the function a success.

Sabah DAP youth had taken a bold step to organize such an event with the sole objective to bring the people together. In Sabah, we have no race and religion barrier, this is because the Sabahan are different, we shared the brotherhood and each other’s culture, and we understand the racial identity is inherited and religious believes is within own self. We live together with good respect to each other and we keep racial and religious believe aside. The key word is still “RESPECT”!

This competition definitely demonstrated the spirit of the Sabahan living together in harmony and true respect. The Sabah DAP youth team will organize more such function in the future to promote solidarity amount the young people in the near future.

The Sabah DAP state chairman cum the KK MP Dr. Hiew King Cheu, when delivering his speech during the function said that DAP is not only concentrating on politic but also will do its best in all other aspects. The singing of English oldies would definitely bring back old memories, the sad and the happy moments. He said without the past, we will have no future, because we all have to learn from the past experience and records. This is especially so when we are thinking seriously about changing for a new and better government. We will have to look at what happened in the past, are we getting our best deal and being well taken care off?

沙巴民主行动党英语老歌卡拉OK歌唱比赛成办
“民众互相联系的晚宴”

由沙巴民主行动党青年团于9月15日在海洋城海鲜餐厅举办的英语老歌卡拉OK歌唱比赛圆满完成。 其筹委会主席杨展之,也是沙巴民主行动党青年团团长说,该项比赛吸引了大约500名的观众。 十六位的参赛者表现奇佳,深的好评。 他们的落力演出,使到在场的很多听众都回到70年代的回忆。 该比赛的宗旨是注重于怀旧和回味当年许多美好的光景及回忆。 杨氏感谢所有协助成功举办该项歌唱比赛的人士及歌手们。

沙巴行动党青年团采取了这项大胆尝试的活动,其目标是使到各方能够彼此联系和团结在一起。在沙巴州我们没有种族和宗教的特别区分,因为沙巴人共同建立了兄弟情谊和接纳彼此的文化,我们了解到种族的区分是继承的和宗教是个人的信仰。 我们生活在一起是要有良好及互相尊重,应该把种族和宗教之分置于一旁。 最关键的仍然是‘互相尊重’!

该项歌唱比赛表现了沙巴人民在和谐及彼此的真正尊重之下一起生活。 沙巴民主行动党青年团会在将来主办更多的此类的活动,以促进沙巴州的年轻人更加团结及和谐。

沙巴民主行动党州主席兼亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士,在当天晚上的宴会说,行动党不仅是关注政治工作,也将尽一切所能在其他领域做到更好。 英语老歌带来许多旧时的美丽回忆,无论是悲伤或快乐的时刻。他说,如果没有过去,那么我们就没有将来,因为我们都必须汲取过去的经验和教导,才能打造一个美好的将来。 尤其是当大家都认真考虑有关要更换一个新的及更好的政府。 我们必须看看过去所发生的事件,我们是否有被现任政府好好照顾到我们的一切?

Government needs to be careful on Coal power plant



The Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib announced the government had made the decision to erect the coal-fired power electricity generation plant at Sahabat in the Dent Peninsular. The location is within the FELDA oil palm estate, and it is Federal land. This location is selected because it is far away from any densely populated area and from any town.

The Sabah Chief Minister said this is the only location in Sabah that is fit for the construction of the coal power plant. He also mentioned that this will depend largely on the out-come of the DOE (Department of Evironment) report on the EIA (Environment Impact Assessment), all these must take care to the very detail. He said there is no other ways but to build this coal plant in order to solve the power woes in the East coast of Sabah. The government has not decided on what is the size of the power output.

When asked by the press to comment on the government’s decision to build the coal plant in Sahabat in the Felda plantation, Dr. Hiew King Cheu, the Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament, said he upholds the stand that if there is any slightest and potential environmental pollution with long term irreversible damage to the environment and people, it should not be considered and implemented. Therefore, if the BN government insisted on doing this, the DOE must come up with a very thorough and clear EIA report, to ascertain that there will be no long term harm done at all times. The DOE must guarantee also that their reports are not biases, and the reports must be published and made public to satisfy all the concern people.   Even better, if there is an additional EIA report made by an independent international environmental body.

Dr. Hiew comments that even though the DOE’s EIA report says okay, there are still many areas that the government should look into concerning the proposed coal power plant. It is not only the environmental impacts, but also there are concerns over the possibility that the coal deposit in the Maliau Basin will be dug out in the future to feed the coal plant. The government should guarantee that this coal deposit will not be touched, if the Indonesia coal supplier ceased to supply. We should also be aware that if the coal price shoot up high, will our rate on electricity goes up too?

Further to that, the government should insist on the use high quality coal-fired power generating plant and coupled with the advance technology for the strict pollution control. Since the coal power plant is going to be built and run by an Independent Power Producer (IPP), the agreement has to be scrutinized to its best terms and condition for the protection against any potential pollution. There should be a clause to review the agreement if any slightest pollution is detected. The power plant and its surrounding environment should be inspected every year with certification by the DOE. There should be a time frame for the up grading and renewal of the equipments used.

If the coal plant is going to be built after approval from DOE, the government should consider increasing the generating capacity of the plant from the proposed 300MW to 750MW, so that it can cater for the increasing power demand in the east coast for a longer period.

Dr. Hiew King Cheu, KK MP.

政府必须小心处理燃煤发电厂的问题

我国首相拿督斯里纳吉和沙巴首席部长慕沙阿曼已宣布政府决定在沙哈拔 (Sahabat, Dent Peninsular) 兴建燃煤发电厂。该发电厂的位置是在联邦土地发展局 (FELDA) 的油棕园的土地上。 政府决定置在该地点是因为它远离人口稠密的地区,而该处是联邦土地。

沙巴州首席部长说,这是在沙巴州唯一适合的地点用来兴建该燃煤发电厂的建设。 他还提到说,该项重要决定原则上还必须等待环境部(DOE)对该处的环境冲击影响评估报告(EIA),才能做出最后决定,而该项评估报告必须要有很详细的报告。  他也说,除了兴建燃煤发电厂以外,没有任何其他的方法,能够解决沙巴州东海岸电供的困境。此外政府还没有决定让该发电厂供应多大的电力。

当受到报界的询问时,亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士对政府决定在联邦土地发展局的棕油园土地上兴建燃煤发电厂发表意见说,他坚持的立场是,如果有任何丝毫潜在的严重的环境破坏和污染及影响到人民的健康,就不应该考虑和实施该项工程。 因此,如果国阵政府坚持这样做,那么环境部必须拿出一个全面和明确的环境冲击影响评估报告,以确定在长远之下不会对环境或人民有任何的伤害。  环境部也必须保证他们的报告据有真实性的和没有坦偏任何一方,及其报告书必须公布给所有关注此事的民众知道。 最好还是要有一份来至国际方面的独立环境冲击影响评估报告。

邱博士说,尽管环境部的环境影响评估报告说没有问题,但仍有许多地方政府必须加以研究,有关兴建燃煤发电厂的利与弊。 因为它不仅是对环境的影响,也可能导致马廖盘谷(Maliau Basin)煤炭将来被挖掘,以供应该燃煤发电厂。 如果印尼煤炭供应商停止供应,政府要保证这个煤炭保留地将不被挖掘。 我们也应该考虑到,一旦煤炭价格暴涨,我们的电费会上升吗?

他进一步说,政府应该坚持使用高品质的燃煤发电厂配备,并以先进科技严格控制污染问题。由于将要兴建的燃煤发电厂是由一家独立发电商(IPP)所建造和运行, 该项与政府的合约将要以最好的条件来签署。 其中应当有一个特别条规来定期审查任何轻微污染检测。 发电厂及其周围环境应该每半年检查并得到环境部的认证。 此外应该定下期限维修及更换或更新所使用的机件及设备。

如果该建议中燃煤发电厂得到环境部的批准,政府应该考虑增加建议的300兆瓦改750兆瓦
的发电能力,以便它能够应付在东海岸日益增加的电力需求量。

TUDM facilities in Kota Belud





Sabah DAP mobile team led by Dr. Hiew King Cheu, the State chairman cum the KK MP with Vice chairman Edward Mujie and Infra structure bureau chief John Lee Kim Seng, visited the newly built TUDM (Malaysian Air Force) “Air to Ground Target Scoring System” in Kota Belud military firing range today.

The DAP team was on a public mobile service and conducting the walk-about campaign in Kota Belud. They were brought to visit the location which is located some 30 KM from the town centre. Surprisingly it is so easy for them to get into the military facility supposed to be under the safe guard and control of TUDM. There were no guards, except a worker living in the quarter, with gates unlocked and wide open.

The facility is believed erected for the air to ground firing practice and exercise for the Air force aircrafts. It is constructed since 18th January, 2008 and completed on the 18th January, 2009. The cost was not sure, and there is not much people know about the construction and existence of this facility. There are some living quarters, stores, a four-storey control and observation tower with a helicopter landing pad.

Dr. Hiew said why the facility is not put under strict security and guarded by military personals? How come the general people can gain entrance easily into the facility? Further the local kampong folks can rare cows and goats in the firing range? Are these people safe to go into the firing range, and what happen if there are live-ammos being used during the fire practice?

The road linking to the facility is sealed and very nice, but the road outside the place linking to the town used by the public is still gravel rough road. Why can’t they sealed the public road too, especially the military road is not being used regularly.

Some body must answer to all these questions? We believed this is another project under the BN government.

Dr. Hiew said he will seek further clarification from the Minister of Defense in the coming Parliament October sitting to get down to the bottom of the matter.

哥打毛律皇家空军设施
沙巴民主行动党流动服务小组,州主席兼亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士,州副主席爱德华慕吉和基本设施局主任李金星,今天一同前往视察新落成在哥打毛律的马来西亚皇家空军‘空对地目标计分系统’的军事射击场。
民主行动党团队是在哥打毛律进行公众流动服务和进行会见当地商家的活动。 他们受邀前往视察离市中心约30公里的军事设备 。令人惊讶的是他们是那么容易进入本应在安全防范和空军控制的军事设施。 在场并没有任何军事人员看守,而只有一名居住在那里的工人,该处的大门并未上锁和敞开着。
该军事设施是用来让空军飞机射击练习的地方。这是在2008年1月18日兴建,并在2009年1月18日完成。 其费用多少并不清楚,也没有多少人知道该建设和这项空军设施的存在。 这项设施包括一些宿舍,储存室,一座楼高四层的控制塔和直升机停机坪。
邱博士说,该设施为什么没有被严格的安全保卫及没有军事人员守卫? 为什么普通百姓可以自由的进出该设施? 此外当地甘榜人也能够利用该处的练靶场地来畜养牛和羊只?如果军方有用实弹来演习,而这些人又能轻易的进出靶场,这将会有什么后果?
该段马路连接到该设施是全部铺上沥青的,非常平坦。 但是连接该处的公共道路仍是粗砾石路。为什么他们不能将这连接的公路也给予铺上沥青。 反观军方的路是没有时常的使用,而公路确是附近多个甘榜必经之道。
这些问题必须获得有关当局的回答。我们相信这必定是‘另一个国阵政府工程’。 邱博士说,他将十月的国会议会中提出要求国防部解释该被设施的种种问题。

Tamparuli Kg. Rongolis, no water and power supply


Puan Irene Sumin from Kg. Rongolis, Tamparuli, whose house was burnt down six month ago, called on DAP Tuaran branch chairman, Peter Liew Fui Ken to complain on the Tuaran assemblyman. She was given a promise to help her to rebuild her house, but six month has passed, there were nothing happened. At the moment Irene had to squat with her relatives, and it is very inconvenient for her.

Peter Liew visited her burnt down house and sympathize that Irene as a disable person facing tight financial problem, it will be hard for her to rebuild her house by herself. Irene wish the DAP can help her to get some assistance some way or from the authority to help her to rebuild her house, especially this was promised by the Wakil Raykat Tuaran 6 month ago.

Peter Liew surprises to find out also from the kampong people that some of the houses had no power and water supply. The kampong folks had applied for the power supply and water meter, and the SESB has installed the meters but can’t supply any power due to there is no main power cable. There is no water supply in the kampong, the main water pipe was only laid until the main road outside Kg. Rongolis and was not connected into the kampong. Until now the kampong folks have to depend on the gravity water from the hill as their water supply.

The BN government has proclaimed so much to up-grade the living condition, and announced so much money is allocated for the supply of power and water to the rural area, by today we still see many kampong are still suffering from these shortages. How to improve the living standard and quality of living, while even a suburban kampong like Kg. Rongolis is not given power and water supply? What is the BN Government doing for the people? Therefore, it is high time to change the BN government for a better future, said Peter Liew and the Kampong folks from Kg. Rongolis, Tamparuli, Tuaran.

Peter Liew Fui Ken, DAP Tuaran Chief.

担坡罗里甘榜隆古利(Tamparuli, Kg. Rongolis)没有水电供应
居住在担坡罗里甘榜隆古利(Tamparuli, Kg. Rongolis) 六个月前被大火烧毁的艾琳素敏女士,致电给行动党斗亚兰负责人刘辉坚,向他抱怨有关斗亚兰区议员在六月前慰问她并许诺帮助她重建家园,但六个月过去了,什么行动都没有。 目前艾琳不得不寄住在她亲属的家,这使她非常不方便。

刘氏前往探访艾琳被烧毁的房子,也很同情她身为残疾者又因财政紧绌的问题,重建她的房子更加困难。 艾琳希望行动党能帮助她得到一些援助,以某种方法帮助她重建她的家园,特别是来自斗亚兰区议员在六个月前的承诺。

刘辉坚更加惊讶的发现该甘榜的一些房屋没有水电的供应。 甘榜居民已向电力局和水务局申请的电和水表,并且电表也已安装好,但却不能提供电力,是因为主电源线没有联接到该甘榜。 此外有些房屋也没有水供,因为主要的大水管只接通到甘榜到外面大马路,而并没有衔接到甘榜里。 因此到现在为止,甘榜居民必须依靠山边的地下水。

国阵政府已宣布了那么多次有关提升人民的生活条件,并宣布拨款以提供水电供应给甘榜地区,然而今天我们仍然看到许多甘榜还是面对水电短缺的痛苦。 像担坡罗里甘榜隆古利的郊区都没有完善的水电供应,试问政府如何提高人民生活水平和生活品质? 国阵政府到底为人民做什么? 刘氏和该甘榜的居民都认同,现在是时候要有改变,必须要更换政府才能创造美好未来。

Garbage center upgrade needed at Taman Pasir Putih


To cut the long story short, Taman Pasir Putih shop lot garbage problem remain unsolved for months, previously Penampang town council did clean up the mess after complain, but that is not a permanent solution, as more and more rubbish disposal in the garbage center daily and seriously overflow the current bin available, Reacting to Pasir Putih residents complaints, Sabah DAP infrastructure bureau chief John Lee Kim Seng and the Local government and Housing Bureau chief Edward Mujie had observed the situation and found that the smell of rotting waste that permeates this area has become unbearable and the commercial area in Taman Pasir Putih has become a filthy and unpleasant place. The local authority must do something urgently, if this goes on, our issues with rats and household pests will never be resolved

We hope the new management of Putatan council would consider to adopt a better solid waste management by upgrade a bigger rubbish center for people to disposal their garbage or increase the frequency of garbage collection at Pasir Putih residential area so as to ensure all the residents can have a clean healthier and more pleasant environment during Bulan Ramadan.

巴希卜迪园 (Taman Pasir Putih)的垃圾处置中心需要提升

巴希卜迪园 (Taman Pasir Putih)商店附近的垃圾处置中心的问题,过了好几个月仍然没有被解决。 虽然经过投诉后,兵南邦议会虽然派人做清理工作,但是却仍然没有永久性的解决该问题。 目前随着越来越多的垃圾丢在垃圾处置中心,该垃圾箱的垃圾满溢而倒撒满地。 沙巴民主行动党基本设施局主任李金星和当地政府及房屋局主任爱德华慕吉再次收到该处居民的投诉,前往实地巡视并发现该垃圾中心比以前更加糟糕,并且也发现腐烂的情况,而且垃圾的气味弥漫让人无法忍受。 这巴希卜迪园 (Taman Pasir Putih)商店区已成为 一个肮脏又有碍市容的地方。 地方当局必须立刻处理该项问题,如果任其继续下去,老鼠和细菌的滋长的问题将永远不会得到解决。

我们希望新上任的卜打丹管理层认真地采纳更有效的垃圾处理方案及提升该垃圾处置中心,同时增加在该处的垃圾收集次数,以确保所有居民提供更好的垃圾处理方法,好让该区有一个清洁健康和更舒适的生活环境。

Donggongon fish market filthy and smelly


Penampang: Donggongon township in the Penampang constituency is growing into an urban setting. Unfortunately there are many infrastructures that are not in place to meet with the urbanization process. The weekly “tamu” is a reminder of our rural past but for those who sell their products during the tamu, urbanization brings more cash into their pocket. While business grows, the provisions for effective and efficient business are not in place. One good example is the poor parking management in Donggongon.

The Chairman of the Donggongon Hawkers Association, Mr. Marsillius Tiwol contacted DAP Penampang Dr. Edwin Bosi concerning the unhealthy, dirty and smelly condition of the Donggongon fish market. Fish is one of the main components of our staple food. It is therefore pertinent that the markets where we sell and buy our fish, meat and vegetables are clean.

According to Marsillius, he raised several issues with Assemblyman for Kapayan and Assistant Minister YB Datuk Edward Khoo when the latter, officiated a Harvest Festival celebration at the Tamu organized by KDCA Donggongon on 16th June 2009. During Datuk Khoo’s tour he saw for himself the poor lighting system in Donggongon, the dirty and smelly rubbish bins at the fish market, the rotting tables in the wet market and also, the leaking problem at the wet market. The Assemblyman promised to bring these issues to the attention of the Penampang District Council. Until today, nothing has been done to alleviate these problems.

Ironically, these issues were brought up by Mr. Marsillius to the attention of YB Datuk Edward Khoo on 18th April 2008 just a month after winning the Kepayan seat during the 12th general election.

Maybe YB Datuk Edward Khoo should consider resigning if he is unable to meet the expectation of the people and voters in Penampang in general and Kepayan in particular. A by-election in Kapayan will as all by-elections brings short and long term economic boom to the constituency and the surrounding areas. We have witness that in Malaysia, a by-election is the best way to develop a constituency effectively.

脏臭的东贡岸(Donggongon)鱼市场

宾南邦选区的乡镇东贡岸逐渐成长成为一个购物中心。 很遗憾的是该处的许多基本设施都没有被关注, 以迎合城市的脚步。每一周一次的‘斗磨’是甘榜人售卖他们土产的好时机,在该处设立良好的基本设施可以帮助他们获得更多的利润。 虽然生意有在增长,但是有效的提高生意额的设施却仍然没有被提升。东贡岸严重缺乏泊车位就是一个很好的例子。

东贡案小贩公会主席玛希琉士(Marsillius)向兵南邦民主行动党艾德温博西医生投诉,有关于东贡岸鱼市场又肮脏,又臭及又不卫生的鱼市场。 鱼是我们主要食物之一,因此销售或购买鱼,肉和蔬菜的市场是必须干净和卫生的。

据玛希琉士(Marsillius)告诉艾德温医生说,他曾经向甘拜园州议员及副部长拿督丘克海提出有关该项问题,当时拿督丘在二零零九年六月十六月主持由东贡岸土著文化局(KDCA Donggongon)举办一年一度的丰收节庆典。 他领拿督丘前往巡视东贡岸的鱼市场,并且指出该处无人处理的脏臭垃圾,不亮的照明灯,破坏又腐烂的桌子,及严重的漏水问题。 当时拿督丘克海承诺将会把这些问题向兵南邦议会反应,并要求他们关注。 但是直到今天,当局却没有采取任何行动来缓解和处理这些问题。

其实东贡岸市场所面对的问题,当时是由玛希琉士(Marsillius)于二零零八年四月十八日,就在大选的一个月后拿督丘赢得席位的时候已经向他提出的。

如果赢得席位却无法为人民服务,确保人民的福利,尤其让甘拜园区选民感到彻底的失望及辜负他们对他的期望,也许拿督丘克海应考虑迎咎辞职,并且在该区再进行补选,因为这将可以带来短期和长期经济繁荣和发展的期望。我们可以看到,马来西亚举行补选是最好的方法使该区能够有更好的发展。

Sugar Shortage worsen in Sabah


Sabah DAP Consumer Affairs Bureau chief Federic Fung Kong Win during the last few weeks received many public complaint especially from the business sector and the Islamic bumiputras who are preparing for the Hari Raya festive season celebration soon. They complained about not being able to buy sugar fr the various shops and super markets. Some time there is a long queue before them, when they reach their turn the sugar already sold out.

Fung said there is an acute shortage of sugar in the whole Sabah, and even in the more remote areas. Some are offering higher price in order to get their supply. In the State capital Kota Kinabalu, there are long queues to buy sugar can be seen from shops and super markets. He questions the government on why this controlled item can be of shortage? The government should ensure that this compulsory item must be readily available in the market, especially during the festive season like Hari Raya. There is always shortage of sugar when ever Hari Raya approaches, every year is the same.

The government had not planned properly in terms of supply and demand of the sugar. The imports of sugar are controlled by the few appointed licensed importers and suppliers, why there is the case of shortage? Had the government no control over the suppliers and importers on the quantity of import? The people’s need must be taken care off, otherwise the government should consider appointing and grant more licenses for others to import sugar also. We don’t want the market to be spoiled by the few who control the market.

What is the plan for the government now to help our Muslim friends to get their ration of their sugar for their Hari Raya celebration? This is not fair for them to worry and running all over the place to find sugar.

沙巴州白糖严重短缺
沙巴民主行动党消费者事务局主任冯光荣过去几个星期接到许多市民投诉,尤其是来自商界和准备庆祝开斋节的当地回教徒。 他们抱怨说,他们无法在各商店或超级市场购买到白糖。 他们需要曾经排长龙,而当轮到他们却发现白糖已经售卖一空。

冯氏发现整个沙巴州面临严重的白糖短缺问题,甚至在较远的乡区也买不到白糖。 有些人甚至付出高价,以便能够获得供应。 在亚庇市,到处的商店和超市可以看到大排长龙购买白糖的情形。 他质疑为什么政府可以让这统制品会如此严重的短缺? 政府应该确保统制品必须随时可以在市场按照规定的价目购买到,特别是在开斋节。 每年的开斋节几乎都要面对白糖短缺的问题。

政府没有妥善计划白糖的供应和需求。 白糖的进口是控制在几家被委任及授权的进口供应商,为何今天会有短缺的情况? 为何政府没有对进口供应商的进口数量管制? 人民的需要必须受到关注。 现在发生了短缺问题,政府应该考虑再委任,多几家白糖进口商以应付市场的需求。 我们不希望市场由少数商家控制市场。

现在面临如此短缺状况,政府有没有应急的计划来帮助我们的穆斯林朋友,让他们在开斋节期间有足够的白糖应节? 他们认为这是不公平的,因为他们需要跑多个地方都不能购得白糖。

Poor drainage causing problem and misery, lookout for dengue and malaria


Kota Kinabalu: Drainage is one of the important components especially in housing estates. Poor drainage leads to a slow discharge of surface water from the housing estate to the monsoon drain. Drains must have a reasonable size to handle a certain amount of rain water and it must always be cleared off vegetation.

Mr. Jo Chang lives at Lorong Bunga Dahlia 6 in Taman Cantik, Lido for the past 20 years. There is a 100 meter drain behind his terrace house that is not concreted and always clogged with water hyacinth and grass. Every time it rains, the drain would quickly swell, and the flood water would spill over into his house. At least four to five houses in this terrace block are affected. Jo said, having dirty drain water into the house is not a good experience. He has made several complaints to DBKK but they fell on deaf ears.

A site inspection was done by DAP Dr. Edwin Bosi with Mr. Jo Chang and he noticed that the drain is not concreted throughout. It is also clogged with water hyacinth and grass. It is basically a small pond when there is no rain, and a good place for mosquitoes to breed. DBKK and the health Ministry must be concerned about dengue and malaria. Dr. Edwin said, we should not wait for an outbreak of dengue and malaria at Taman Cantik and the surrounding area to occur before the authority takes notice.

Dr. Edwin urges DBKK to immediately take action to look into the matter and clear all the drain in Taman Cantik, and rebuild the drain so that there is no stagnant water. The people’s health is more important.

排水不良造成的问题和苦难
水渠是一个重要的基本设施,特别是在房屋区。 排水不良将导致地面排水缓慢。排水渠必须有一个适合的设计容量来排放雨水,也必须经常受到清理除草。

住在兵南邦,丽都美丽园的张先生向行动党艾德温博西医生投诉,在过去20年来在丽都美丽院都面临沟渠不通之苦。 该房子后100米长的排水沟经常被水葫芦和杂草堵塞。每逢下雨,排水沟会很快胀满,而沟水会流溢而进入整排的房屋,屋主们深受影响。 张氏同时表示,这些进入屋内的肮脏水,是一个很烦恼的经验。他多次投诉亚庇市政厅,但是他们对此却置若罔闻。

到现场视察的艾德温医生注意到,排水沟的污水的确流溢满地,也被水葫芦和杂草堵塞。 水沟已成为小池塘,如果没有下雨时该处就会成为蚊虫滋生的好地方。 市政厅和卫生部必须关注黑斑蚊的滋生。艾德温医生说,我们不应该等待的疾病的发生,必须要立刻行动使到该处清洁及不受水浸。

艾德温医生敦促亚庇市政厅能够立即采取行动,把水沟清除。 任何有积水情况的水沟应该改善或重建。该地居民的健康应该获得保障。

Donggongon parking bays inadequate




Penampang: Donggongon township which is about 12 km from the city of Kota Kinabalu is the major shopping area. On Wednesday the township starts to come alive because of the weekly tamu that ends on Friday. During these three days, Donggongon is so congested with cars and finding parking bays is like striking a 4-digit. Parking becomes haphazard and double parking is not uncommon. Tempers do run high but somehow, the tolerance level among the community is still pretty high.

The construction of Mega-Long Mall which once upon a time was a public car park, is one of the reasons of the inadequate parking bays in Donggongon. An empty space next to the Fire and Rescue department was converted into a temporary parking area. Before this rather long and ugly shopping complex is ready, the so-called temporary parking is now undergoing some construction. There is no substitute for this parking area and now, the parking madness has descended into Donggongon township.

The tamu is very popular and a good time for rural folks to earn extras from their village products. The poor and disarray parking management in Donggongon is not helpful at all. Business is badly affected because Penampang consumers would rather shop in other towns and even Kota Kinabalu.

The business community is concerned and has requested DAP to highlight this problem. DAP Penampang urges the Penampang District Council to look into this matter seriously. As the Donggongon township is growing, it must be complemented with proper town planning and infrastructure – adequate parking, good sewerage, good drainage, good road network, good waste disposal and good electricity supply.

东贡岸(Donggongon)泊车位的不足
兵南邦:距离亚庇市大约十二公里的东贡岸镇,是兵南邦区主要的购物市场地点。 每逢星期三到星期五该处都有进行‘斗磨’,因此连续的三天,整个东贡岸市集车水马龙,非常热闹,造成许多车辆到处寻找泊车位。 该处的泊车情况变得杂乱无章,并且双重泊车的情况到处可见。 由于严重的缺乏泊车位该处的民众难以容忍,情况日益糟糕。

该处以前曾经有个宽大的公共露天停车场,如今已被利用于建造一座巨大又长的商业购物中心,造成了东贡岸泊车位不足的主要原因。 目前在消防局旁边的一个空地,被改成了临时停车场。该处将被继续用来作为临时停车,直到该购物中心完工为止。由于没有一个代替的泊车场,因此东贡岸面对非常糟糕的泊车情形。


该处的‘斗磨’很受大家欢迎,因为可以让甘榜人售卖他们的土产品,这使到他们有一个赚取额外收入的好机会。 但是由于没有泊车位,使到他们的生意受到严重的影响,因为兵南邦的消费者宁愿转到其他附近的商店,甚至于到亚庇市购买物品。

地方领袖及商界非常关注这问题,并且要求沙巴民主行动党协助向当局提出。兵南邦民行党敦促兵南邦议会认真的研究和解决该处的泊车位问题。 由于东贡岸镇不断的发展和增长,因此必须要有适当的城市策划和提升该处的基本设施,列如有足够的泊车位,良好的排污系统和水沟,完善的道路,有系统的废料处理和稳定的水电供应。

Upgrading of Jalan Kitobu (Kawakaan) to Kg. Tindai delayed




The kampong folks complained to Sabah DAP on the delayed on the road upgrading work for the Jalan Kitobu to Kg. Tindai in Kionsom, Inanam. The people here suffered a lot due to the bad condition of the road which they travel on every day. It is especially so when it is raining now.

Jeffrey Kumin of DAP Inanam, and Sabah DAP state organizing secretary, went to inspect the road condition and found that the upgrading work has not commenced in spite the signboard was put up sometime age. It is stated clearly that the said upgrading work was supposed to start on the 18th of May 2009 and complete on the 17th of February 2010. Since then 4 months has passed, there is not much activities happening on site for the upgrading work. The people asked why the work is not carried out on schedule.

This could be “another project by Barison National”! We urge JKR to immediately to expedite on the work, because the people is suffering, and they had enough of the excuses given. Is it because of that the government can not pay the contractor?

Besides, there are other roads in Inanam like Kg.Tampulan and Kg. Timbok in Telipok also in real bad shape. The kampong folks also like Jeffrey Kumin to highlight to the authorities for immediate attention and action. They have reported and requested the YBs in the area to help but so far no action taken, therefore they have no choice but to turn to DAP for help.

吉德布路(加瓦卡岸)Jalan Kitobu (Kawakaan) 到甘榜丁带(Kg. Tindai)的路段维修延迟
沙巴民主行动党接到许多投诉有关,当局一直在延迟提升和维修从吉德布路(加瓦卡岸)Jalan Kitobu (Kawakaan) 到甘榜丁带(Kg. Tindai)的路段。 由于该段道路情况非常恶劣,道路使用者每天都吃了不少苦头。尤其每逢下雨时,情况更加遭糕。

下南南行动党党要兼州组织秘书杰斐利古明前往视察该路面的情况,发现该提升的工程并没有依照该招牌所指定的日期进行。 这已明确的表示,其改善工程应该在2009年5月18日开始,及以在2010年2月17日完成。 现在4个月已过去,现场却没有任何造路提升的活动。 该处的人民在问,为什么工作不能如期进行?

这可能是‘另一个国阵的工程’! 我们敦促工务局立即加快工作,因为人民正在遭受困苦,不要再推塘及理由多多。 是否政府无法支付承包商的费用呢?
此外,还有其他的道路需要提升,如在下南南的甘榜丹布兰(Kg.Tampulan)和在打里卜的甘榜丁布(Kg. Timbok)。 该处的道路状况实在很坏。 甘邦居民要求杰斐利协助向当局强调立即关注和采取积极行动来维修该些道路。 他们曾经向该区的国州议员要求提供帮助,但是到目前为止,并没有采取任何行动,因此他们没有选择,只好求助于民主行动党。

Permanent Residency or work pass for West Malaysian and Sarawakian in Sabah


The PR or work passes for West Malaysian and Sarawakian to work and stay in Sabah, has been a highly disputed matter recently in the papers by the politician.

Sabah DAP has been contacted by the press to give comment on the matter, Dr. Hiew King Cheu the state chairman and Jimmy Wong Tse Phin the vice chairman, have shared the view that there is some differences between the PR and the work permit. The two can not be mixed together, and it is not to be taken as one entity. Some people may be allowed to stay permanently, but not necessary they are working, some are working and wish to stay here permanently, and some are working here without the intention to stay for long.

These can be divided into the following groups:-

(1) temporary stay with work permits,
(2) settled down with local wife or husband with children and grand children,
(3) working and staying here for over a long number of years,
(4) owner of businesses and properties,
(5) foreign expatriate or second home seekers,
(6) people with ground of good services and conduct records.

The granting of PR and work permits is entirely the jurisdiction and power of the Sabah state government under its Chief Minister department and the Immigration department. The Immigration power is under the state government, and is stipulated under the Malaysia Agreement - 20 Points.

To many Sabahan, they may not agree to allow the West Malaysian and Sarawakian to come into Sabah to live and work here. That is why in the first place Sabah Immigration Act provided that Malaysian from outside Sabah must go through the process of applying for entry permit, work permit and later PR status in Sabah. This is still a step set down to control the influx of outsiders into the state, and to protect the rights of the locals in Sabah.

This has become totally different, because the number of people from outside the state will be more than the locals now, especially the Pilipino and the Indonesian who had become Sabahan through various means. Some Pilipino and Indonesian are holders with PR and work permits. It is very easy for them to obtain PR and even Mycard. Some without any identity and document are being given “green cards” by the BN government to register them, and they are eligible to live and work here in Sabah happily and legally. Their numbers are alarmingly on the increase, will the BN government continue to give them the priority on the Mycard, PR and green card?

What is happening and what is the BN government doing to the thousands of West Malaysian and Sarawakian who came and worked their life for more than 30 years with a family here and contributing to the economy and development of Sabah? It is very unfair for the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib to talk so much about 1-Malaysia, and that he will remain talking about his slogan and no action done. We want to see something to be done to stop and clear away the illegal foreigners from obtaining Sabah PR status and identity.

西马及砂劳越人在沙巴州的永久居留权或工作准证

西马及砂劳越人在沙巴州的永久居留权或工作准证,一直以来是政治人物在报章上高度争议的问题。
沙巴民主行动党被报界要求对该事件评论,该党州主席邱庆洲博士及州副主席黄仕平对有关永久居留权及工作准证持有共同的看法,并认为两者是有分别的不能把它混为一谈。 有些人可能获得永久居留权,但是他们没有做工,有些人在沙州拥有工作准证并希望成为永久居留,则有些人只在沙州工作,却没有打算长期居留。

这些可分为以下种类: -
(1)临时居留并拥有工作准证的,
(2)与当地人结婚,生育后代而希望永久居留的,
(3)在沙州工作和已居留许多年的,
(4)企业家或拥有产业者,
(5)外国移民或寻求第二家园者,
(6)拥有行为良好的记录者。

批发申请永久居留权和工作准证是完全由沙巴州政府及首席部长公署和移民厅管辖下批准。 州政府授权移民厅,并根据马来西亚协定的二十条例所拥有的权利。

许多沙巴人不同意让西马人或砂劳越人在沙巴州居留和工作。 前来沙巴州的外人必须根据沙巴移民法令的规定,先要申请入境证,工作准证,然后才能申请永久居留证的一系列过程。这个规定是为了控制外人涌入本州的步骤,并且保护当地人的权益,而不让外人侵融。

沙州目前的状况已经完全不同,因为居住在沙巴州的从外来人比本地人多,特别是菲律宾人和印尼人已经通过各种合法及非法管道成为沙巴公民,或得到永久居留权和工作准证。 由于国阵政府为他们进行登记,使他们很容易获得永久居留权或身份证,甚至在没有拥有任何正当文件之下都可以获得政府所发出的‘绿卡’。 因此他们可以合法的在沙巴州居留及愉快的工作。 令人震惊的是他们的人数不断的在增加,是否国阵政府将会继续给予他们居留特权,工作准证,甚至公民权呢?

有关永久居留的问题,国阵政府到底在做些什么,他们应该去协助许多在沙巴工作超出几十年的西马和砂劳越人,仍然每年需要申请工作准证。 他们已经在此成家立业,并且也为沙巴的经济发展作出巨大贡献。 首相拿督斯里纳吉所推出的‘一个马来西亚’概念,他继续的大喊口号,却没有实际采取任何的行动解决以上的问题。我们要看到政府实际的行动,以制止和解决非法拥有沙巴永久居留及公民权的非法移民。

Briefing by Perkeso to DAP leaders




The Pertubuhan Keselamatan Sosial (Socso) Sabah chapter here in Kota Kinabalu today invited the Sabah DAP leaders to give them an up-to-date briefing on the function and operation of the government department (Perkeso), which is under the Ministry of Human Resources.

The DAP were lead by Dr. Hiew King Cheu, the State chairman cum Kota Kinabalu MP, the state Vice chairman Edward Mujie, the State treasurer Fung Kong Win and the MP office in charge Ms Adeline Yep. The briefing was held in the Wisma Perkeso at Tg. Aru, where they were briefed by the State director Jeeva A/L Narayansamy, the assistant director David Lois Kimon together with other heads of department.

The briefing was concentrated on the function and operation of the Perkeso in Sabah, with focus on the particular benefits that the Perkeso can offer and assist the employers and their employees based on the concept of social insurance policies. The goal of social security is the provision of cash benefits and benefits-in-kind to the insured persons and their dependants in the event of a contingency. The Social Insurance has the main characteristics like:-

(1) The scheme is contributory, and compulsory,
(2) It provides benefits to the insured person as a matter of right,
(3) Every claimant has the right of appeal in case of refusal,
(4) It provides cash benefits which are related to earnings,
(5) It aims at minimizing litigation on disputes.

The director Jeeva mentioned about the reluctances of the employers not subscribing to the Socso scheme is due to lack of understanding to the benefits of the scheme that aim to provide a security compensation benefits involving accident losses and even loss of lives. He explained the various detail of the schemes which are provided for the benefits of the subscribers. The Social Benefits are divided as follows:-

(1) Medicals Benefits,
(2) Temporary Disablement benefits,
(3) Permanent Disablement benefits,
(4) Dependant’s benefits,
(5) Funeral benefits,
(6) Invalidity Pension,
(7) Constant-attendance Allowance,
(8) Survivor’s pension,
(9) Rehabilitation benefits,
(10) Education benefits.

SOCSO was established as a government department on the 1st January 1971 to enforce the employee’s Social Security Act, 1969 and Employee’s Social Security (General) Regulations, 1971. Social Security may be defined as the protection furnished by society to its members through a series of public measures against economic and social distress that otherwise would be caused by the loss or substantial reduction of earnings resulting from sickness, maternity, old-age and death, employment injury, unemployment, invalidity, and for the provision of medical care, and benefits for the maintenance of children.

Dr. Hiew put forward the public complaint concerning the misunderstanding amount the general employers and employees towards the action taken by the Perkeso officers in enforcing the power to nab errant bosses in their “Ops Kesan Perkeso” beginning 1st of August. The errant employers upon conviction, could be jailed up to two years and fined not more than Rm10,000, or both. Dr. Hiew explained the basic reason on why the employers did not subscribe to the scheme willingly, was merely that they were not aware of the objectives and the many benefits provided for the employees and their families protection in the long term. By using enforcement to catch the errant employers may not be the answers. The poor employers may not be aware of such compulsory social insurance under the law and the many benefits provided.

Therefore to the effect, Dr. Hiew as the MP for KK suggested that in order to enhance the employers to subscribe to the Socso scheme, the public must be properly informed and educated about the social security scheme. He also suggested the Perkeso to organize more briefing sessions for the public to further explain the purpose and benefits. Who doesn’t want benefits? That is why the department must explain properly before taking action against the errant employers. They may be an innocent party. Sabah DAP has offered to organize some of the briefing session for the department to meet the people. This is our duty too as a responsible political party, and the details will be made known soon.

社工保险局向民行党领袖汇报
联邦人力资源部的社工保险局(SOCSO)今天邀请沙巴民主行动党领袖汇报,并向他们解析有关该部门的运作。

参与该会谈的有沙巴民主行动党州主席兼亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士,州副主席爱德华慕吉,州财政冯光荣和国会议员助理爱德玲。 这次面谈是在丹容亚路社工保险大楼的会议厅进行,并且是由社工保险局总监吉瓦拿拉亚撒米(Jeeva A/L Narayansamy),其副主任大卫路易士基蒙(David Lois Kimon)连同其他部门官员向民行党领袖做出简报。

在该简报里,主要集中在沙巴州的社险工作的运作,与具体的利益。 社险可以提供及协助雇主和雇员的社会保险策划概念为基础。 在任何意外事件中,社工保险的目标是以现金赔赏和提供物质福利于被保人,及其家属。 政府所提供的社险主要的特点是:-
(1)强制性参于及缴款,
(2)它提供被保人一项权利,
(3)在被拒绝的情况下,有上诉的权利,
(4)提供现金赔赏和提供物质福利,
(5)提供减少纠纷的诉讼。

在吉瓦拿拉亚撒米总监提到有关不苟同该社险计划的雇主,是因为他们不太了解该计划的宗旨于提供一个齐全的赔偿,当涉及意外及生命的损失。 他解释该保险措施是对雇主及员工利益的保障为主。 该社险的保障划分如下: -

(1)医药费的赔赏,
(2)暂时性伤残的赔赏,
(3)永久残废的赔赏,
(4)受益人的利益保障,
(5)丧葬补助,
(6)残疾退休金,
(7)护理津贴,
(8)遗属抚恤金,
(9)康复治疗的补贴,
(10)教育金补贴。

社工保险局的组织在1971年1月1日按照1969年社工保障法令和1971年社工保障条例之下成立。 社工保险的主要目标是让员工当受到疾病影响,生育期间,年老和死亡,工伤,失业,残疾而造成其经济困境,进而提供一系列的措施,以保护其家庭成员,和提供医疗服务及儿童的抚养费。

邱博士提出民众的投诉有关一般雇主和雇员对来至社险部门的人员采取强硬执法,有所怨言。 该部门所发起于八月一日开始的‘社险取缔行动’来对付没有参与该社险的雇主们。 一经定罪,犯错的雇主可能被判入狱长达两年及罚款不超过马币一万零吉,或两者兼施。 邱博士向他们解释为什么雇主不愿参与该计划的根本原因, 是因为他们不明白该社险的宗旨,及为员工与其家属提供的长期保障和好处。通过使用执法来为难雇主们并不是一个好的办法。 雇主们大多不知道这种强制性的社工保险在法律的规定下所提供的许多好处。

因此如果要有好效果,邱博士建议,为了提高雇主参与社险计划,公众必须给予适当的知识和对社工保障计划的教育。他还建议该社险局能为雇主提供更多的了解讲座会,向雇主解释清楚他们能得到得好处。民主行动党是一个有责任的政党,将会协助社险局举办讲座会让该部门能够向雇主讲解该社险的详情。 该讲座会的日期及地点将会公布。

Musa’s statement on Power supply


The statement by the Chief minister Datuk Musa Aman in replying Datuk V K Liew’s comment that if the power supply situation cannot be solved, BN will loss the many seats in Sandakan and in the state, that also including the seat under the CM’s Sungai Sibuga seat too. He said the government is at the moment trying its best to find ways to resolve the power shortage problem, and the geothermal heat in Tawau will be one of the solutions. The proposal to extract the heat from underground to power a 100MW power generator is being studied.

Sabah DAP views the CM’s reply on the acute power woes situation faced by the Sabahan seems a bit unsatisfactory and had not touched on any concrete solution to solve the problem. We are disappointed to what he had announced, and there is no clear indication in the decision of the government to solve the long outstanding problem.

The proposal to tape the geothermal energy in Tawau seems a bit remote, and there is no solid evidence on the possibility of using the geothermal heat source to generate 100MW. This type of technology by using the earth’s heat source to generate steam and then electric power, it is in fact there for many years ago in the 70’s. The taping of the geothermal heat source is very costly and highly dangerous. It is not that simple as it looks. The government announcing this is rather premature and without giving due consideration. Just announcing this proposal will not solve the problem of power woes. They should check with the experts who know about this type of technology.

The whole reason for the power woes still rests on the negligence of the SESB and the State government not being able to handle the planning and implementation of power supply system in Sabah. Why do we have to suffer that many years without stable power supply? There is no master plan for the ever increasing power supply demand. The Sabah BN state government chose to depend on the various “funny” ideas and none seems to work until today, and now going for the uncertain geothermal energy power generation.

Why the hydro power is not being considered? In Sabah, we have plenty of rivers suitable for the purpose, why the government did not do anything for the past twenty years? If the three hydro power stations, like the Liwagu, Upper Padas River, and even the upper Paper River were built in the mid 90’s, we should be able to have enough power supply by today. The hydro power station is by far the best way of power generation, this is because the water is free, low construction cost, low maintenance cost, pollution free, little environment impact, and can give us cheaper rate in the future. We have many other good rivers which can be used for hydro power stations. It is just up to the will of the government whether they want to tape the clean free energy. It looks as if this shall be put right by the next Sabah government, under Pakatan Rakyat.

慕沙对沙电供的推搪言论
沙巴首席部长慕沙阿曼今天回应拿督刘伟强有关电供问题若不能获得解决,国阵将失去所有山打根的席位,这也包括首席部长的西布架席位(Sungai Sibuga)。 他说,政府正在尽力设法解决电力短缺问题,而建议在斗湖兴建地下热能发电作为解决的办法之一。 目前当局正在研究从地下热能来生产约100兆瓦的电力。

首席部长因人们面临严重电供困境所给于的回答,沙巴民主行动党认为似乎敷衍之说,并且没有任何诚意及具体的解决方案。 对于他在报章上的宣布我们感到非常失望,尤其是没有明确地表示政府如何去解决长期悬而未决的问题。

针对在斗湖兴建地下热能的建议似乎有点浮而不稳,同时能否取得地下热能来产生100兆瓦电力,也没有确凿的根据。 利用地底下的热源产生蒸汽,然后转变为电力的技术,其实早在70年代已有。 然而采用地下热源是很昂贵及具有高度危险,这并不是如所说得那么简单。 政府的宣布相当的不成熟,同时也没有给予应有的考量和深入研究。 只在报章上宣布这项建议,将不会解决沙巴电供的问题。 针对该项采用地下热能的技术,政府应该寻求专家的意见并且了解其功能后才作出任何宣布。

整个电供短缺的主要原因,是在于沙巴州政府及电力有限公司从未周全的处理和疏忽策划电力供应系统的实施。 为什么我们这么多年都一直默默承受着没有稳定的电供之苦? 这是因为沙电力公司对不断增加的需求量,没有一个很整体长期的策划。 沙巴国阵州政府经常选择采取一些‘怪怪’的构思,但直到今天仍然没有实际的计划,而现在还采取一项不能确定的‘地下热能发电方案’。

为什么不考虑水力发电?在沙巴州,我们有很多适合的河流,为什么政府在过去二十年来都没有考虑到增加利用水力发电呢? 如果在九十年代的中期在里哇古(Liwagu),巴达斯河上游(Padas River),和吧巴河的上游建立了水力发电厂,我们今天应该有足够及稳定的电力供应。 目前水力发电是最好的解决方法,这是因为水源是免费的,此外兴建的成本及维修成本很低,无污染环境的问题,并且在未来能给予我们比较便宜的电费。 这要看政府是否要采取免费又清洁的能源了。 相信这一切应该会由下一届沙巴民联政府来进行吧!
