民主行动党国会领袖林吉祥与亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士,泗岩沫区国会议员林立迎,沙登国会议员张 念群及其他沙巴民主行动党领袖被拒绝进入西邦加海军基地,和参观数十亿马币的潜艇东姑阿都拉曼号。

DAP Parliament leader Lim Kit Siang together with KK MP Dr. Hiew King Cheu, Serdang MP Teo Nee Chieng, Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng with other Sabah DAP leaders were refused in to the Sepangar Navy Base for a quick visit and to see the billion ringgit submarine KD Tungu Abdul Rahman.

Dr. Hiew had earlier on contacted the Naval officer in charge for a permission to enter the base for a quick visit by the DAP Parliament leader to check on the famous submarine whether it has been repaired and capable of diving. The answer given was no and rejected their visit on the ground of secrecy reason, and it is also due to the visit of the Sultant of Selangor during that time. Anyhow Lim and the DAP group still took a drive to view the new Naval Base in Sepangar to understand more of the situation there, and the group was stopped at the entrance of the billion ringgit built navy base.

In Parliament, the Minister of Defend Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi during the question time on the topic of the submarine did mentioned that he can invite the Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Yin to go to the Sepangar Naval Base and check on the Submarine together. DAP is still waiting for his invitation to see whether the submarine had been repaired or not. According to the people who worked in the base, they said that the boat is believed to be still under repair. On today newspaper, they are going to try diving on the submarine, will it be successful? Or any more trouble again.

In replying a question from the KK MP Dr. Hiew on the reason why the RM 3.4 billion is having so much trouble and might endanger the life of the crew members, the Minister of Defend replied in Parliament that the submarine is still under warranty and no need for alarm to its faults and mechanical failure. The answer is not acceptable and why should a new submarine to have such a major fault in the system and what happen next when the warranty period expired.

民主行动党国会领袖林吉祥与亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士,泗岩沫区国会议员林立迎,沙登国会议员张念群及其他沙巴民主行动党领袖被拒绝进入西邦 加海军基地,和参观数十亿马币的潜艇东姑阿都拉曼号。

邱博士之前已经接触海军主管军官,向他要求获准民主行动党国会领袖进入该基地,并且视察该首艄著名的潜艇是否已经完成维修及能够潜水了。  该基地的主管军官拒绝了他们的要求,并且说其原因是因为该处是个严守的军事基地,同时凑巧雪兰莪州的苏丹也在这段时间里在该基地进行访问。 无论如何林氏和行动党团队仍然前往该处视察,以了解该新海军基地的实况,但是该团队被禁止进入耗费马币数十几亿所兴建的海军基地。

在国会中,国防部长拿督斯里阿末扎希在有关于潜艇的话题提问时有提到说,他可以邀请槟城首席部长林冠英去参观西邦加海军基地及视察该艄潜艇。  民主行动党仍在等待他的邀请,并且想知道该潜艇是否已经进行维修了没有。据在该基地工作人员说,该潜艇仍然还是在修理之中。  今天的报章上指出他们将尝试进行海底潜水,这是否意味着已经完成维修工作呢?或会导致更多的问题。

针对邱博士的问题关于为什么耗费马币三十四亿的新潜艇,会有这么多问题并且可能危及船员的生命,国防部长在国会回答说该潜艇仍在保养维修期 内,所以没有需要担心会有机械故障。 如此的回答是不能接受的,为什么一个新的潜艇,既然会有主要系统发生故障的严重问题,如果保养维修期过后,政府将要如何做?
