非法车棚兴建在马路保留地 // Illegal car shed blocking access to land




The illegal car shed built on a road reserve which is blocking the access to a plot of land. The owner of the land had complained to the various authorities concerning this problem many times over. There were letters written and warning letters were issued to the illegal car shed user.

有一个非法车棚兴建在一块马路保留地,因而挡住了前往其他土地的通道。 该地主已经多次向有关部门投诉,并且要求该些部门能够处理该项问题。而当局也已经发出书信警告于非法车棚的用户。

沙巴民主行动党地方政府及房屋局被告知该项问题,立即前往现场检查该情况。 陪同的有其副局长拉斐尔和党员史提文亚曼和罗伯特,他们看到该非法车棚确实是坐落在马路保留地,并建在他人的土地上。

大家想知道为何有关当局对该户主如此无可耐奈,即使他们已经证实该车棚是非法兴建的,及还兴建在马路保留地上,并阻挡通道前往他人的土地,但是却无法对他采取取缔行动。 该地主说他通知了亚庇市政厅,土地测量局,总检察长局以及州政府秘书办事处。 据悉,当局已经向该车主发出拆除车棚的文件,但却是废纸一张,毫无效力。 最后一封警告信是由土地局发出,信上陈明该车主拆除非法车棚的期限,以及处罚条款,并指出如果他不拆除该非法车棚,将会面对罚款和监禁。但是该警告通知如石沉大海,没有任何效率。

拉斐尔说,有关当局好似“无牙的老虎”,看起来像只“温顺的小猫”,无奈并无能力! 这么小小的非法车棚事件也无法采取适当的行动处理,地主也不知要等到何年何月,该问题才会真正的受理! 这清楚的表明就算政府官员前往该处视察也没用,因为他们一直都没有执行拆除行动。 该地主希望能够在他的土地上建造自己的新家,现在他们的计划完全无法进行。 到底是谁应负责呢?

拉斐尔指出,如果该车主可以随意兴建非法车棚在马路保留地也不会陷入麻烦,那么其他人也可以在马路保留地随意兴建他们的车棚也不会有问题,因为有关当局无能管制。 政府必须要有法律来管治不遵守并滥用法律和藐视法规的人。 此外当局也必须确保他们信件的效力,并根据信上的期限严格执行拆除非法车棚,不能拖延。 该警告通知的拆除车棚最后限期是20124月,但是到今天却没有行动。

Illegal car shed blocking access to land

The illegal car shed built on a road reserve which is blocking the access to a plot of land. The owner of the land had complained to the various authorities concerning this problem many times over. There were letters written and warning letters were issued to the illegal car shed user.


Sabah DAP Local Government and Housing Bureau was being informed of the case and had conducted a site visit to check on the situation there. Its assistant Bureau Chief Raphael Ang, and members Stephen Yaman and Robert Raja saw the car shed is really sitting on the road reserve and right over the fence of the land next to it.

The question is why the authorities are so helpless, and couldn’t take action even though they have confirmed that the car shed is illegally and wrongfully built on the road reserve, blocking other people’s way. The authorities which were notified are DBKK, Land and Survey Department, AG department and the State Secretary office. According to sources, a notice was given to demolish the car shed, but this has become a waste paper. The final letter from Land and Survey to the owner of the car shed was issued with a deadline and a penalty clause stating that there will be a fine and imprisonment, if he doesn’t demolish the car shed. This notice again fell into deaf ears.

Raphael Ang said the authorities are “toothless tiger” and looked so helpless like a “pussy cat”! Such a small car shed also can not be dealt with proper action, and only can wait “until Kingdom come”! This also demonstrated that there is no use for the government officers to come to see, while there is no action taken. The land owner urgently requires to move into his land to construct their new home, and now their plan is spoiled totally. Who should be responsible?

Raphael also said that if someone who can use the road reserve without getting into trouble, then other people can also use the road reserve to build their car shed without getting into trouble. There must be some laws to abide the people from not abusing the laws and regulations. The authorities must make sure that their order letter to demolish the illegal car shed is executed strictly with further delay. The final date to demolish the car shed is stated on April 2012.
