30,000 investors believed duped of RM300 mln in Forex scam

by Elton Gomes. Posted on October 29, 2011, Saturday

KOTA KINABALU: More than 30,000 investors, including many in Sabah, are believed to have suffered losses amounting to RM300 million in an international get-rich-quick scheme or Forex scam in Malaysia.

Sabah DAP adviser Dr Hiew King Cheu, who revealed this yesterday at a press conference attended by 12 of the people who claimed to have lost money in the scam, said the figures could be more as there are investors who might not have lodged any report.

Hiew said such cases were alarming as they also affected people in Sabah.

He said the Government, especially Bank Negara, should monitor such activities as they involved huge sums of money being sent out of the country.

“What is Bank Negara doing? We know that anything more than RM10,000 remitted to a foreign country must have Bank Negara’s approval, and the amount involving a single investor could reach over RM100,000, or a million, and this figure should be too big for Bank Negara to miss,” he said.

Masjid Al-Aman needed new roof // 回教堂需要维修屋顶



亚庇新苏兰的回教堂需要关注,尤其是屋顶漏水的问题。 沙行动党领袖前往新苏兰和亚庇中央巴刹进行走访期间所收到有关的投诉。 参与走访活动的包括有张国华医生,爱德华慕吉,亚庇国会议员邱庆洲和与其他党员。

这间回教堂是位于在亚庇新苏兰的菲律宾巴刹旁边。 在亚庇中央巴刹,菲律宾巴刹和新苏兰以及对面岛的回教徒经常使用该回教堂,每逢祈祷或聚会时都非常拥挤。他们曾经向有关当局要求维修该漏水的回教堂屋顶,但是当局迄今还没有采取行动处理。他们要求沙行动党能够协助他们向有关当局反映该问题,希望由沙行动党代他们要求,可以获得有关当局的关注,并立即采取行动维修漏水的屋顶。张国华医生前往视察该回教堂的屋顶,并且询问使用该回教堂的民众,发现屋顶确实需要维修,因为每逢下雨就影响了信徒的祈祷。


The Majid Al- Aman in Sinsuran Kota Kinabalu is needed attention especially to the leaking roof. This was the complaint received by the Sabah DAP during their walk about conducted recently in the Sinsuran and KK central market. The DAP leaders were Dr. Felix Chong Kat Fah, Edward Ewol Mujie and the KK MP Hiew King Cheu with other members.

The Masjid Al-Aman is in the KK Sinuran sea front next to the Philippine market, and it is frequently used by the people working in the central market and some from the opposite island. This is a crowded Masjid during prayer times and very unfortunately their requests were not heard and no action has been taken. They requested the DAP to highlight the issue and hope that when DAP voiced out this the authorities will listen and take immediate action to replace the leaking roof. Dr. Felix went and inspected the Masjib, after asking around and checked the condition of the roof from outside, found out that the complaint is valid.

1-Borneo Pet shop being harassed



The pet shop in 1-Borneo shopping mall was being disturbed by an individual person and being harassed to get the authorities to close the shop.

This problem was brought to the attention of the Sabah DAP complaint bureau chief Allem Chieng Yew Kiong. The owner of the said pet shop was very upset due to the disturbance created by this individual who had repeatedly came to the shop to make various accusation and threatening to get the authorities to come to close the shop. She said the shop is not allowed to sell dog and cat, and brought her husband who is a police officer to come to the shop too.

Zakaria Edris very wrong // 查卡里亚有没有搞错?



沙行动党地方政府与房屋局主任爱德华慕吉针对沙巴土著事务理事会主席兼贡贡州议员拿督扎卡里亚 (Datuk Zakaria)今天在本地报章所发表的言论感到遗憾, 并认为沙巴民主行动党甘拜园支部主席史提文京邦岸应该道歉。 爱德华说,可见他是没有搞清楚该课题的来龙去脉和前因后果,就胡乱指控和恶意的批评,甚至侮辱人,并要史提文‘重回学校’及指责他制造故事。

事实上身为沙土著事务理事会主席兼贡贡州议员的扎卡里亚应该花些时间研究该问题的起源,也既是在2010年当首相拿督斯里纳吉提呈2011年国家预算时,曾宣布将会增加村长的津贴,并将于20111月施行


The Sabah DAP State Vice Chairman Edward Ewol Mujie regretted the statement made by the Sabah Native Affairs Council Chairman and also the current Gum Gum Assemblyman Datuk Zakaria Edris. He is attacking the Sabah DAP Kapayan Branch Chairman Stephen Jimbangan’s statement on the local paper.  He had not gone through the detail of the whole issue and had made allegation and rude comment to insulted people by telling someone to “go back to school” and accusing on “bikin-bikin” (make up stories).

In the real fact Zakaria being an Assemblyman and the Chairman of Sabah Native Affairs Council should study the whole issue from day one in 2010 when the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak tabled the National Budget of 2011 had announced that the community leaders would get a rise in their allowances.

Jalan Sepangar needed Police station // 士邦加需要警署





邱国会议员希望内政部慎重考虑在该处设立拥有人员充足和设施完善的警察局。他说,目前孟加达和加拉文星的警署对该处的居民来说实在是太远了,尤其在紧急情况或危急的案件之下,将会拖延追查或调查的黄金时间。 该地区必须要有警方定时的巡逻,以确保降低及控制该处罪案,这是非常重要。因为有许多犯罪案,如小偷,盗窃,以及非法活动等在该处不断的发生。 政府必须要保护该处市民的安全。

The area along Jalan Sepangar towards the Sepangar Bay Industrial and Container Port is in need of an additional police station and reinforced with menpower here.

This is the request made by the general public in the Sepangar area during the visit conducted by the Sabah DAP team led by its Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Hiew King Cheu and the Vice chairman Edward Ewol Mujie last week.

Penampang council under fire by own Minister // 兵南邦县议会被自家部长斥责

爱德华敦促拿督杨必须提供兵南邦县议会完善的垃圾收集设备,启用新垃圾车和增加其人手,以让该县议会能够有效地开展他们工作,保持该区的环境清洁。否则这确据证明国阵不能有效的管理地方上垃圾的问题,更不用说要管理好沙巴州和马来西亚。 应该是时间开除这些无用的‘国阵经理’,换上‘民联经理’取代他们!
  

The assistance Minister of Local Government and Housing Datuk Edward Yong Oi Fah has called on the Penampang District to bark up in their operation and administration to serve the people well in the district. This is following the many complaints received by the ministry regarding to the poor performance of the district council on the garbage collection system, overall cleanliness and among other council problems within.

Datuk Yong said that the council had demonstrated poor performance and attributing it to the lack of manpower and equipments was not acceptable. Every district council received allocations from the government and they have their own planning. If they are aware of this problem, why don’t they find a solution?

Happy Deepavali - let the light of love, justice and moderation triumph over the darkness of hate, extremism and intolerance to create an united, just and prosperous plural Malaysia



Media statement by Lim Kit Siang in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday, 25th October 2011:


Deepavali celebrates the triumph over evil and light over darkness.

Happy Deepavali to all Malaysian Hindus.

Is Muhyiddin fit to continue as Education Minister when he could violate a student's child rights just to serve a blatant and dishonest political agenda?


I am indeed shocked and outraged by Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's statement yesterday that Lim Guan Eng's denying sexual harassment claims against his son (my grandson) was inadequate.

Let the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and every Cabinet Minister declare whether they agree with Muhyiddin or not – which will also be a measure of the quality of Cabinet Ministers Malaysians have.

The school principal concerned has denied that there was ever such an incident of sexual harassment involving my grandson. The Penang State Education Director Ahmad Tarmizi Kamaruddin also said yesterday that his department found no evidence to back the allegations in several blogs.

Audit: Not even 1pc Sabah computer labs completed


KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 24 — Only two out of 300 computer laboratories for Sabah schools have been constructed since the government began its RM160.73 million project in April 2008, the Auditor-General’s report said today.
Sabah recorded the highest number of computer lab construction projects as well as costs, followed by Sarawak (RM49 million), Johor (RM10.88 million) and Selangor (RM11.95 million.)
The report added Sabah was the only state with unfinished computer labs, and that other states had long since completed the construction of the facilities in schools.

林吉祥:沙砂是「造王者」 冀州民把握改朝换代机会

seehua.com


西沙新闻


(本报亚庇廿三日讯)民主行动党全国顾问林吉祥形容本州及砂拉越为「造王者」,并强调下届大选,将是第一次、也是最后一次,改变东马和布城的执政机会。

因此,林吉祥促请掌握国家改朝换代命运的东马人民,在随时举行的全国大选中,捉住改变机遇。

他说:「改变是绝对有可能的,因大马政局经过308政治大海啸后,我们终于见证了改变的机会。」

有鉴于此,他吁请沙砂州民,应抓紧这巨大改朝换代的良机,并非单单为沙巴,而是为整个马来西亚。

他在会上一再重申,欲要促使马来西亚改朝换代和杜绝本州被边缘化48年,唯有掌握布城政权,因单靠州政权将难以达成。

他说:「沙巴曾出现数次州政权易手,但在没有取得联邦中央政权做出改变基础下,要改变和杜绝所有的贪污、边缘化、非法移民、提升石油税等,都变得不可能。」

他强调,欲要改变现况,唯有民联政府方能做到,故州民千万不要错失这个机会,因唯有民联才能恢复沙巴公义。

亦是怡保东区国会议员的林吉祥,是于昨晚在此间,出席沙巴行动党主办的「火箭之夜」晚宴时这么表示。

提到其孙子近日来,沦为部落客攻击目标,指其非礼一名同班学生的指控,林氏表示,这足以证明政治道德经已宣告破产。

他说:「造谣者甚至诬赖我的儿子林冠英,为此事动用廿万令吉来做为掩口费,而身为教育部长兼巫统署理主席的副首相丹斯里慕尤丁不但没以身作则,反之指林冠英的否认并不足够。」

Village chiefs allowance of RM650 not fair // 沙巴村长津贴才马币六百五十令吉



沙巴州的村长对于政府所宣布的每月马币六百五十令吉的津贴感到不满。 他们指出政府宣布将今年11月起,每月村长津贴从原来的马币四百五十令吉增加到马币六百五十,其实是不足够而且也不公平。


In Sabah the Ketua Kampong (village chief) felt unhappy to the ruling of being given the RM650 monthly allowance. According to them it is unfair for the government to announce the increment of their allowances from the original RM450 to a mere RM650, and only starts in November 2011.

Sinsuran Complex needed improvement // 新苏兰商店设施需要提升


新苏兰商业中心设施需要亚庇市政厅的关注,尤其是基本设施和环境问题。 昨日沙巴民主行动党州副主席爱德华慕吉在走访该处期间,接到许多民众和业主投诉。


该处的业主和顾客向他抱怨说,新苏兰商业中已被亚庇市政厅遗忘和忽视有很长的一段时间,当地州议员也没前来协助他们。 他们说,该处的人行道损坏了很久,当局也没有派人前来维修或更换损坏的地砖快。 此外该处树木也没有修剪,生长到很靠近店铺,而有些树枝已经长的太低,导致打到行人的头部。 亚庇市政厅应该要派人来修剪该些树木。

The Sinsuran Complex is indeed needed attention from DBKK on its infrastructure and surround environment. This was the complaint received by the Sabah DAP Vice chairman Edward Ewol Mujie during the visit walk about conducted yesterday to this popular shopping area.

The business owners and shoppers here complained to him that the Sinsuran Complex has been forgotten and neglected by the DBKK for a long time and the local assemblyman did not come to help them. They said the walkway here is broken for a long time and no body came to maintain or replace the broken slab. The trees have not been trimmed and most of the branches are leaning against the shop and too low touching the head of the pedestrians. DBKK must come to trim off the branches.

The question on the payment of the senior citizen money (BOT) to the poor elderly people came into doubts //“老人援助金”的付款问题

BOT payment to senior citizens
政府支付给贫困老人的‘老人援助金(BOT)’的方式令人民责疑,尤其接到许多老人家没有获得有关当局准时发出的援助金的投诉,有时他们只收到小部分的钱,甚至在一些偏远地方完全是没有收到。

亚庇国会议员邱庆洲最近在沙巴报章上披露了该项事件而备受市民的关注,并且引起福利局及其部长下令进行调查,关于为何这些贫穷的老人家面对收取援助金的原因


The question on the payment of the senior citizen money (BOT) to the poor elderly people came into doubts when there were many complaints that the old people didn’t get their money assistance money on time, sometimes less or even nothing in some remote areas.

Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament had brought this matter up in Sabah recently and attracted much attention until the Ministry ordered an investigation to be conducted to check on the real cause on why these had happened.

为何货品价格还是不断的上涨



 
首相纳吉于十月头宣布2012年的财政预算案,并且指出该財政預算案有望進一步推动涵盖政府、經濟、政治各层面的国家转型计划国阵成员党领袖纷纷给予该预算案的赞赏。 实际上是否真如纳吉所言能够促进各层面的发展呢? 人民心里都在怀疑!

沙巴民主行动党必达卡士支部主席兼投诉部主任詹咏豪说,自从首相宣布预算案后,他接到许多市民的投诉有关许多货品价格起价的问题。   经过詹氏前往商店了解和调查后,发现其实该些起价的货品并不是日常必需品,但是市民间中还是会购买。  由于价格上涨,让经济吃紧的人民更加面对艰苦。


Sabah Forest Reserves illegally cleared //沙巴保护林资源非法砍伐

在过去10年以来,有约槟岛一个半大的沙巴州森林保留区已被非法砍伐,并且已种植油棕。 沙巴森林部总监拿督曼南说,大约40,000公顷的森林保留地已受到影响。他说,该部门已采取行动将该些土地回收,到目前为止已从非法种植的土地收回约20,000公顷并重新种植森林树木。

总监拿督曼南说,虽然砍伐森林保留区问题还是继续,但幸运的是如今在现任政府的‘政治意愿’下,有关当局将会采取行动防止沙巴森林保留区被非法侵占。 

Sabah Forest reserves totaling one and half times the size of Pulau Penang have been illegally cleared and planted with oil palm over the past 10 years. Sabah Forestry Department director Datuk Sam Mannan said that about 40,000ha of forest reserved land had been affected. He said the department was fighting back and so far recovered about half or 20,000ha of these illegal plantations and replanted with forest trees.

The director Mannan said the deforestation continues, and fortunately there is now political will to thwart the encroachment before the entire forest reserve disappears.

The by-election in Batu Sapi was a battle either to win or loss, if Yong had decided to join the fray, he should face the defeat gracefully and accept the defeat.

Sabah DAP state assist. Secretary, Junz Wong statement on Yong Teck Lee and SAPP



Junz Wong said Yong Teck Lee the SAPP president was defeated and having a very slim votes received, and ranking last in the Batu Sapi by-election had put him in deep regrets, and he is unhappy ever since. In return he turned towards the Sabah DAP accusing that DAP colluded with the UMNO to jointly attack him that caused his bad defeat. He felt highly on himself, and he took every else as no good. Since Yong Teck Lee had brought up the topic, and we take this opportunity here to tell him some facts so that he wouldn’t keep on accusing us and hopping on his defeat in Batu Sapi.

Missing drain covers on road can kill // 路面大洞造成危险


在士邦加园(Taman Sepangar) Lorong Seri Indah 1路口交界处的路面上的沟渠盖遗失,造成一个大洞在路中央。 该路面上危险的大洞导致进出该住宅区的车主面对困难和危险。

上周日,爱德华前往士邦加进行探访期间,该处的居民向他投诉有关事件并要求他向当局反映。 民众说,他们虽然已经向亚庇市政厅投诉有关问题,但是当局却没有给予任何关注。目前也没有看到当局派人前来解决该问题,他们好像都置之不理。

There is a missing drain cover leaving a big hole in the middle of a road junction at Lorong Seri Indah 1 in Taman Sepangar opposite the Malawa Power Station. The big hole that is in the middle of the road junction had created difficulties to drivers and endangering the road user of the housing estate.

Edward received complaint concerning this during his visit to the Taman Sepangar here on last Sunday. The people said that DBKK may not have noticed this, and even they had made reports. There is still no sign on when they can come to fix this up.

BN terus pinggirkan Sabah dan Sarawak

17 October 2011

KUALA LUMPUR, 17 OKT – Walau pun Bajet Barisan Nasional 2012 diwarwarkan sebagai bajet rakyat berpendapatan rendah oleh para pengampu mereka, rakyat miskin kekal menderita dengan janji-janji palsu pentadbiran Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Penolong Setiausaha Publisiti Kebangsaan DAP Teo Nie Ching berkata, projek-projek dalam Bidang Keberhasilan Negara (NKRA) yang diumumkan Perdana Menteri dua tahun lalu telah gagal mencapai matlamatnya.

Beliau memberi contoh-contoh kegagalan BN yang menyebabkan tekanan hidup semakin memburukkan keadaan rakyat berpendapatan rendah, terutama rakyat Malaysia yang tinggal di Sabah dan Sarawak.

Di Sabah yang didakwa kubu kuat BN:

* Sehingga September lalu, 180,48 km jalan bertar telah siap atau telah diperbaiki. Bagaimana pun, sasaran sebenarnya ialah 366,67km, iaitu hanya mencapai 49 peratus.

* Hanya 3,463 isi rumah luar bandar dan pedalaman telah mendapat bekalan air bersih, gagal dan jauh dari sasarannya, iaitu 18,063 – hanya mencapai 19 peratus.

* Hanya 1,080 isi rumah luar bandar dan pedalaman yang telah menerima bekalan elektrik sedangkan sasarannya adalah 4,509 rumah, iaitu cuma mencapai 24 peratus.

Yong and SAPP twisting fact to cover themselves // 杨德利和沙进步党扭曲事实,试图掩饰过错




沙巴民主行动党州副主席爱德华慕吉说,杨德利和沙进步党利用机会,试图转移视线,扭曲事实并且发出毫无根据的声明,为了掩饰自己的过错而不敢面对的人民。

爱德华说,直到今天沙进步党仍然没有好好的阅读报纸的报道,只不断断章取义,盲目的指责沙巴民主行动党。如果沙进步党不明白报章上的陈述,可以请他人为他们读解以明白文告的原意。 实际上指责他人是很容易,但必须要面对其后果,要知道人民并不是盲目的。 沙进步党和杨氏试图制造假象,指责沙行动党和亚庇国会议员邱庆洲在为巫统的工作,并且故意误导人民说沙行动党攻击沙进步党,好让国阵获胜,这完全是沙进步党自导自演的故事。 其实反过来说沙进步党看来是在协助国阵进行全面对民联的破坏,尤其是对沙行动党这方面,看来是要分裂民联在下届大选的选票,好让国阵获胜。
Sabah DAP Vice chairman Edward Ewol Mujie said Yong Teck Lee and his SAPP are using the opportunity to twist many facts and making unfounded statement again to turn away realities and dare not face the people.
Edward said until today SAPP still did not read the newspaper properly and keep on jumping the queue to point their finger to accuse DAP on the SAPP flags being placed all over Sabah. If SAPP don’t know how to read newspaper, please look for someone to teach them. To accuse others is easy but one will have to face the consequences, the people are not blind. SAPP and Yong keep on accusing KK MP Hiew and DAP working for the UMNO and trying to create a situation that the DAP fight the SAPP and let BN win, this is totally a make-up story by SAPP.  It can also be seen that SAPP is going all out to destroy Pekatan Rakyat especially DAP, and aiming to split the vote during the next election so that BN can win again.

SAPP should reveal the truth // 进步党若愿意还原真相,讲出来就是

沙巴民主行动党亚庇亚庇支部副主席沈志安发文告对于诗华17日讯,张碧华:行动党邱庆洲与巫统结盟非无中生有。带出一个不争的事实,就是杨德利任首长期间,推行的政策计划的确存有疑问,连国阵成员也看不过眼,甚至有人想申张正义,却被集体负责绑架出不到声,这是杨成功的地方。

张碧华新闻透露当年巫统曾递交当时的反对党于墨斋一些证据文件,变相承认杨德利当年的作为有问题,并有文件存留作证。张碧华同时指邱庆洲称收到很多朋友给邱氏杨德利的文件证据是来自巫统,他怎会这样有把握知道是来自巫统呢?是他恶意诬赖陷害重伤邱庆洲,还是在告诉大家进步党与巫统其实是有巴结的兵分二路进行攻击行动党,邱庆洲,和黄仕平,进行不道德的人格谋杀,破坏,毁谤,涂鸦,和无中生有的抹粪。


Sabah DAP Api-Api branch Deputy Chairman Henrry Shim in a statement today hitting out on SAPP publicity chief Chong Pit Fah. Chong in a press release said Sabah DAP State advisor cum KK MP Hiew King Cheu colluding with UMNO is a false accusation.  It is a fact that Yong Teck Lee when he was the Chief Minister, his implementation of policy and plans were in doubt indeed, even his BN members at that time, and some even wanted justice, but those who were involved can’t make a sound and they were under Yong’s pressure.

Chong Pit Fah mentioned that UMNO had given some evidence to Yee Mok Chai when he was still in the opposition and used to hit on Yong’s wrong doing. Since he had mentioned this and this indicated that he admitted that definitely Yong had done something wrong. Chong also pointed out that Hiew had received some information from the people, is in fact from the UMNO.  How Chong knew for sure it is from UMNO? He is trying to frame Hiew, and it is evidence that SAPP actually is still an alliance of UMNO to attack Sabah DAP together. Their action is to damage Hiew King Cheu and Jimmy Wong Tze Phin.

Kg Kuala Menggatal needed much upgrading // 甘榜瓜拉孟加达需要提升



西邦加货柜码头附近的甘榜瓜拉孟加的基本设施十分缺乏,急需有关当局的迫切关注。
沙巴民主行动党州副主席爱德华慕吉与亚庇国会议员邱庆洲于周日下午进行探访活动,他们步行探访西邦加附近的甘榜,以了解该处甘榜的情况以及听取该处甘榜人的投诉。 几年前沙巴港务局因港口建设,拆除甘榜房屋并且把甘榜人的居所建在海面上,如今该处甘榜的房屋面对许多问题,他们的房屋基脚变得不稳定,桥梁的木基已经出现腐烂的迹象。该处的居民说是时候有关当局要前来重新维修该海上甘榜的桥基。他们说,该海上甘榜甚至没有厕所,他们的排泄物是直接的流入海里。这是非常肮脏和不卫生。他们问为何政府不能提供卫生设施的房屋给他们,目前该甘榜是处于50年代的处境。

The Kg Kuala Menggatal which is just next to the Sepangar Container Port is very much needed attention by the authorities due to its very lack of facilities.

The Sabah DAP Vice chairman Edward Ewol Mujie with the KK MP Hiew King Cheu conducted a house to house walk about in this kampong on Sunday afternoon to understand further on the real situation of the kampong houses and resident here. The houses built on the sea by the Sabah Port Authorities some years ago to settle the houses demolished during the construction of the port, now faced with the problem of their foot bridges getting shaky and the timber rotten. It is high time that the authorities come to redo the foot bridges said the residents here. They said they don’t even have sanitary toilets, their discharge simply go direct into the sea. It is very dirty and unhygienic. They asked why the government can’t provide houses with sanitary facilities, and it is just like the kampongs in the era of the 50’s.

联邦财政部长拿督纳吉书面回答沙巴行动党亚庇国会议员邱庆洲于1012日在国会中提问,有关国家债务问题,在该书面回答指出直到今年630日,国家所拖欠的债务是马币四千三百七十二亿。

纳吉进一步说,所欠的国债中州属欠联邦政府的债务占大部分,是高达马币四千两百一十亿(占总数的96.3),而外债只是马币一百六十二亿(占总数的3.7)

至于沙巴州欠联邦政府至20111231日是马币二十六亿令吉。


The National debts owed by the Federal Government until 30th of June 2011 was RM437.2 Billions according to a reply made by the Finance Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to a Parliament question raised by the Sabah DAP Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Hiew King Cheu on the 12th of October, 2011.

Najib further said that out of the total debts a big portion of the debts is owed by the Federal government internally in the country amounting to RM421 billions (96.3% of total), and only RM16.2 billion (3.7% of total) is actually the foreign debts owing.

Sabah owed the Federal government a sum of RM2.6 billion as at 31st of December 2011.

Save Kampung Tambatuon




In May this year I visited Kampung Tambatuon at the foothills of Mount Kinabalu and which will be totally drowned in a proposed RM450 million Tambatuon Dam project.
Although the proposed Tambatuon Dam had been mooted for two years, there had been no proper and full consultation by the relevant authorities, including the MP for Kota Belud, who has become the strongest advocate for the Dam project, with the people who would be directly affected with the destruction of their traditional habitat and way of life.
The people of Kampung Tambatuon and concerned communities have protested to the various state authorities against the proposed Tambatuon Dam project.

Sabah DAP Interior urged to make full and proper use of the Budget // 沙行动党呼吁必须充分和适当运用财政预算案

沙巴民主行动党丹南国回选区联系委员会于10月12日举行会议,讨论当前沙巴内陆区和甘榜人所面对的问题和困境。

财政预算案中提及拨出马币五亿令吉用于农村基本设施的建设应公平地分配到沙巴州内陆区。 沙行动党本杰明叶博士指出,许多内陆区迄今仍然严重缺乏基本建设和设备,并且已经落后了十多年。 

DAP Sabah Parliamentary Liaison Committee for Tenom held its meeting at pekan Tenom on October 12, 2011 to discuss the various agenda including the current issues affecting the rural people in the interior of Sabah.
The Budget of RM5 Million for rural infrastructure should be fairly distribute for the Interior of Sabah and the rural areas that were lacking of the basic rural infrastructures and amenities for decades commented Dr Benjamin Yapp, DAP Sabah Inerior Parliamentary Liaison Chief.

Yong covering many facts to protect himself // 杨德利遮瞒事实


沙进步党主席杨德利手指向邱庆洲和沙行动党,及所作出的言论直接反映出他个人的判断错误。 邱氏说,他随时都可以指正他所说的全都是无中生有。既然杨氏提起这么多事件,现在应该是时候由他告诉大家所想知已久的有关事实和真相。

巴都沙必补选中,杨氏指责邱庆洲一直在协助巫统及沙首席部长。邱氏和巫统联合攻击进步党。  邱氏没有攻击巫统,尤其是巫统首席部长。 相信杨德利已经忘记了,邱庆洲已被任命为巴都沙必补选的竞选主任,他的任务是为民联赢得该席位,及不胜也必须保持得票在杨德利之上。这是民联领导层的指示。杨氏诬赖邱氏与巫统勾搭的言论根本是毫无根据的,因为补选时有大量的新闻证明行动党发出全面向国阵的攻击,反观进步党有做到这点吗? 民联的演说会也严厉批评及抨击国阵,并且有许多的录像片可证明。 此外在派发许多传单攻击国阵,难道杨氏没有看到。人民不会被杨氏区区的几句搞破坏的话而相信他。很多人都说杨德利应该面对补选失败,不应在邱庆洲身上寻求报复


The SAPP President Yong Teck Lee issued a statement purposely to damage the image of the Sabah DAP, and its State Advisor cum Member of Parliament Hiew King Cheu is seen to be covering up lots of facts and trying to divert public attention to protect himself and let himself off the hook. In his statement, he has repeatedly sided that Sabah DAP and Hiew are colluding with UMNO-BN.

MP Hiew viewed what Yong had hit out on him and regarded it as a total intimidating and falsification of facts. Yong is merely twisting facts and making wild accusation on the issues and events that he had quoted. The immediate public respond is that “what’s wrong with Yong”? Yong being an ex-Chief Minister, a learned person, a highly educated person and a person who had served in government for a long time came up with such a wild, unfounded, and scrupulous statement, it is a great surprise to many people. 

Badly Damaged Road in Delta Industrial Estate, Kolombong // 哥隆邦立达轻工业区(Delta Light Industrial Estate)基设损坏



许多在哥隆邦立达轻工业区(Delta Light Industrial Estate)的人士都向沙巴行动党州副主席爱德华慕吉投诉,他们告知有关该处的马路情况非常糟糕,该段路面满是坑洞和水洼。 排水沟严重阻塞,造成污水无法排走并导致臭气熏天。

All the drains here have been blocked and collecting smelly water.

亚庇国会议员邱庆洲辩论2012年国家预算案全文


他说2012年的预算​​案中再次看到政府不关心沙巴州的发展。首相在预算案拨出总额中的78%给营运开销,而只有22%拨给发展用途。 这表示沙巴州的发展肯定会被削减或无限期地拖延。 拨给营运的高开销直接表明了政府没有尽力为沙州提升其经济增长。

目前有许多发展项目需要开发以促进经济的发展,并照顾沙巴人民的需求。沙巴没有获得足够的拨款分配,沙州将会继续贫困,并且会落后于其他州属。


这可以从该预算案中所分配给沙巴的少数拨款中看得到。 沙州的道路和桥梁只获得马币四亿多,马币两千万令吉给予排水系统,而马币五亿七千两百万用于提供乡村食水供应和雨水收集,另外马币三亿八千两百万用于农村的电供发展。至于防洪项目,沙电(SESB)和水务局的拨款分配却没获得关注。

联邦政府全面依赖石油和天然气的收入,每年平均收入约马币六百亿,而沙巴州在这方面是很大的贡献者,提供总收入的40%。 尽管沙巴州贡献全国总收入为多的一州,但州内仍然有16%的穷人,也是全国最高贫困率的州属,反观西马贫穷率是2.3%和沙捞越则是4.3%。 马来西亚的42%的穷人落在沙巴。 

民联执政沙州,必定履行承诺派发两百令吉沙巴基金局分红

沙巴宣传秘书陈泓缣

14/10/2011文告
民联执政沙州,必定履行承诺派发两百令吉沙巴基金局分红




针对沙巴进步党主席杨德利这一个星期来对沙巴行动党的攻击,我们认为这已经超过了政治辩论的范围,完全沦落为毫无理性的人身攻击。在短短的四、五天时间内,杨德利接连对我党沙巴顾问兼亚庇国会议员丘庆洲博士,和我党沙巴主席兼斯里丹绒州议员黄仕平开炮。杨德利首先指责丘庆洲勾结巫统,后而嘲讽黄仕平是廖哥(鹦鹉)。进步党诸位领袖一直宣传行动党攻击进步党,但是事实胜于雄辩,眼睛雪亮的人民,该当知道到底是谁毫无克制地将政治争论变成人身攻击。行动党对此感到遗憾,因为反对党合作一对一对垒国阵的目标,可以说已经离开现实越来越远。




我党在上一轮和进步党的政治辩论后,已经在党内形成共识,各位党同志奉行“沉默是金”的守则,对外只注重宣扬民联的理念和政策。但是,沉默不代表懦弱。进步党如今再次针对行动党发动攻击,而且这次将攻击升级到以党主席杨德利直接向我党两名最高州领袖叫阵。试问行动党怎么能够再哑忍下去?黄仕平向人民交代民联替代预算案,以及宣传沙巴民联的承诺,这又犯得着进步党什么事?

Perbahasan dasar Belanjawan Negara 2012 oleh KK MP // 2012 National Budget policy debate by KK MP

Speaker,

The 2012 budget once again has not given emphasis on the much needed development in Sabah. The budget presented by the Prime Minister had given a very high operational expenditure of 78% of the total amount and only 22% on development. This has indicated that the developments expected in Sabah will surely be slashed or delayed indefinitely. The high operational expenditure is a direct indication that the government is not doing well in getting the economy of the country back on its feet, especially in Sabah.

Sekali lagi Bajet 2012 masih tidak beri banyak penekanan kepada pembangunan yang diperlukan di Sabah. Bajet yang dikemukakan oleh Perdana Menteri telah memberikan perbelanjaan operasi yang sangat tinggi iaitu 78% daripada jumlah keseluruhan dan hanya 22% untuk pembangunan. Ini telah menunjukkan bahawa pembangunan yang dijangka di Sabah pasti akan dikurangkan atau ditangguhkan. Perbelanjaan operasi yang tinggi adalah menunjukan secara langsung bahawa Kerajaan tidak berupaya dalam meningkatan ekonomi negara, terutamanya di Sabah.

DAP confirms that a PR meeting comprising of DAP, PKR and PAS top leaders were held in DAP Headquarters in the evening of 10 October 2011

999-year lease term on subdivided land titles should return // 恢复999年地契期限



政府批准给地主,发展商和业主999地契期限应该重新实施,而不应该在分割地气只给于99年期限,而该项措施应立即进行。

沙巴州房屋地产发展商公(Shareda)所提出的建议非常好,并得到各方的支持。 沙巴首席部长拿督慕沙阿曼说沙巴州内阁部将会对此措施进行研究,并且在做出任何决策之前,将会考虑到其中的问题及人民的意见。


The 999-year lease term to the land titles should return instead of the 99 years after master land titles had been subdivided for landowners, developers and house owners, and this measure should be encouraged.

The proposal made by the Sabah Housing and Real Estate Developers Association (Shareda) is valid and supported by all quarters. The Chief Minister of Sabah Datuk Musa Aman commented that the Sabah State Cabinet will study and will take into account the views of the stakeholders and the people before a decision is reached on the matters.

PENSIONERS GIVEN RAW DEAL // 拟议中退休金加额不公平


沙巴民主行动党州副主席爱德华慕吉今天发表声明说,首相兼财政部长在2012年预算案中提及给予许多优惠给公务员,这是根据他们的职级给予增加约马币八十至三百二十令吉的加额。 此外还有一项新的公务员薪金制度(Sistem Saraan Baru Perkhidmatan Awam,并且指出任何公务员选择SBPA制度,将根据其职级给予7%至13%之间的薪水加额,这将会从20121月开始执行。

他说反观退休公务员的退休金不必经过和等待薪酬调整而每年只给于2%的增幅,并且将会从201311日起生效。他说这虽然对退休公务员是个好消息,但是对618,000名的退休公务员中,大约有50%却没有受到任何好处,因为他们每月的退休金是低过马币一千令吉。  爱德华不明白为什么政府不照之前7%至13%的增额公式来同样的为退休金增额,同样在2012年一月实施。

Sabah DAP state vice chairman Edward Ewol Mujie said in a statement today that the 2012 budget presented by the Prime Minister cum Minister of Finance give a lot of perks to the existing civil servants by giving increment between RM80 to RM320 depending on their grades.  Besides that a new civil service scheme known as Sistem Saraan Baru Perkhidmatan Awam (SBPA) and whoever opted to SBPA will be given an increment between 7% to 13% according to their grades with effect from January 2012.

However, he said that the pensioners are only given 2% increment without waiting for salary adjustment/revision with effect from 01.01.2013.   He said that although this is good news to the pensioners, however it does not bring much benefit to all pensioners as among the total of about 618,000 pensioners may be there are only 50% of them receiving less than RM1,000.00 per month.  So he said he wondered why the increment not following the formula of 7% to 13% and implemented at the same time that is on 01.01.2012.

KK water front land is not for the take and may be the CM power is too big // 亚庇海边土地不应被占取


即使沙巴首席部长有权拨出政府土地于私人公司和政府机构签署合资协议,但是亚庇海边土地不应如此被利用。根据首席部长(联营)条例(Sabah Cap 23)授予首席部长的权力,赋予他代表政府控股公司(GLC)与私营公司签署合资的协议(JVA)有许多方面的质疑和问题。 最近在法庭有关亚庇海边400亩的诉讼案已反映出这其中的许多问题和疑点。

亚庇国会议员邱庆洲针对该项事件发表其意见,他说如果政府的联营公司之间的事件没有很谨慎和小心的处理,这将会引发许多问题,并且可能有更多类似的案件将会出现。 这一次沙巴州政府可能很幸运可以摆脱了该官事,但也不能保证下一次会同样的幸运。


The Kota Kinabalu water front sea land should not opened for the take even thought it is under the power of the Chief Minister of Sabah to sign away state land under joint venture basis to private companies with the government. The authority granted to the chief minister under the Chief Minister (Incorporation) Ordinance (Sabah Cap 23) to empower him to permit the government listed companies (GLC) making Joint Venture Agreement (JVA) with private companies had created much doubts, problems and defaults. The recent legal suit in court on the 400 acres of KK waterfront sea land had reflected much of its problems and demerits.

The Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Hiew King Cheu commented on this issue because there are many more pending and possible cases will surface if this is not handled with due care and diligence by the government and its GLCs. This time the Sabah State government may be lucky to get off the hook, but there is no guarantee that the next time is similarly lucky.

2012年预算案──给第13届大选的糖果,但却丝毫没有动摇维持数十年的不公、不义、贪污体制

但是,维持数十年之久的不公、贪污体制却依然文风不动。

2012年预算案,是为了帮纳吉赢得下一届选举而设计的预算案,不是为了改革国家体制、结构与机关,终结我国在国际竞争力上落后、遭其他国家在国家、经济与资源发展上超前而发展的预算案。

Budget 2012 fails to live up to the Prime Minister’s reform pledges in NEM, GTP and ETP


Media Statement by Tony Pua, DAP National Publicity Secretary and Member of Parliament for Petaling Jaya Utara in Kuala Lumpur

The expectations were high for a pre-election budget where Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak will stamp his “reformist” credentials. It is for the Prime Minister to put into action the various reform pledges made in his cornerstone policy blueprints – the New Economic Model (NEM), Government Transformation Programme (GTP) and the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).
However, the announcement of the budget left much to be desired as little has changed beyond tweaking the budget of the previous financial year. Instead what is perhaps the most worrying is that Malaysians are like the proverbial frog in the hot soup – where the frog does not realise the soup is slowly but surely reaching the boiling point.
