沙巴行动党: 巫统部长不应对梵蒂冈驻马专员的言论反应过激

Dr._Edwin_Bosi2(亚庇16日讯) 沙巴行动党秘书兼甘拜园区州议员艾德温博希呼吁巫统部长勿对梵蒂冈驻马专员马利诺总主教对“阿拉”字眼的观点反应过激,以免影响马来西亚在国际社会 被视为中庸国家的形象和声誉。

也是行动党全国中委的他今天发表文告说,“到目前为止,共有3名巫统部长,即查米尔吉尔、阿尼法阿曼及凯里扎马鲁丁,发表文告批评梵蒂冈驻马专员马利诺总主教认同基督徒 使用“阿拉”字眼的言论。“

艾德温博希说,“日前数家媒体报道马利诺总主教赞成大马基督教联合会有关基督徒可以“阿拉”来称呼上帝。有关报道也注明他明白有关议题刻在法庭审讯,同时也是马来西亚内部的问题,但是他认为大马基督教联合会的论点是“符合逻辑和可被接受的”。

马利诺总主教的观点反映一个熟悉全球基督教会课题的梵蒂冈外交官的观点和立场。

艾德温博希也说,“马利诺是今年初宣誓就任梵蒂冈驻马来西亚的首个使徒外交官。他对国内教会课题发表看法是很自然的事,外交部长和其他内阁部长不应把他的言论看成干预马来西亚内政。“

他也说,“马来西亚政府和朝野国会议员经常都对国际事件,例如以色列和巴勒斯坦、缅甸、埃及和东盟国家等课题发言。“

“因此,巫统部长无须对马利诺主教的言论反应过激,因为他们这种言论也会伤害马来西亚在国际社会里中庸国家的形象。“

他说,“我呼吁巫统部长和政治人物停止跟随类似大马土权、加地等极端组织的步伐。”

“这些极端的言论不只违反“国民和好”的精神,但也伤害许多东马以“阿拉”来称呼上帝的基督徒的感受。“

Lack of Communication with Datuk Bandar stifle the work of MPs

During the reign to Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad Ismail as the Datuk Bandar from 2008 to 2012, he always met up with the MPs of Kuala Lumpur regularly to discuss the issues faced by the public. In fact, meetings between the previous Datuk Bandar and the MPs were held quarterly. YB Teresa Kok states that she was happy as the constant communication with the previous Datuk Bandar enabled her to address issues raised by the public under her constituency directly to the Datuk Bandar.

In July 2012 however, the then FT Minister, Raja Nong Chik, appointed Tan Sri Ahmad Phesal Talib as the new Datuk Bandar. Since then, YB Teresa Kok and other MPs of Kuala Lumpur had only met with the new Datuk Bandar once. In fact, the last time a quarterly meeting between the Datuk Bandar and the MPs was supposed to take place, was cancelled at the last minute. The cancelled meeting was never re-scheduled. In fact, no further meetings have taken place. YB Teresa Kok therefore urge the incumbent Datuk Bandar to meet up with all the MPs, and continue the practice of meeting with the MPs quarterly, so that they can work together in serving the people of KL better. 

Shopkeeper beaten for parking illegally ‘booked’ by someone else

P1000216 editedOn 11th July 2012, a press conference was held in YB Teresa Kok’s office in Kuchai Lama with regard to the lack of parking space in Overseas Union Garden (OUG). Mr. Yeo Kwi Seng joined the press conference together with YB Teresa Kok. 
 
 
Mr. Yeo informed the press that he is a shopkeeper in OUG but have been having trouble looking for parking everyday when he goes to work, due to the lack of parking space available around OUG. The problem is exacerbated by some unscrupulous people, who ‘book’ the parking spots located in Jalan Hujan, OUG. Instead of renting the parking space legally with DBKL, these parking spots were ‘booked’ by placing boxes so that others cannot park on these spots. 

Appeal to the public for help to look for a missing person

IMG_5949On 11th July 2013, a press conference was held in YB Teresa Kok’s office in Kuchai Lama. At the press conference with YB Teresa Kok were J. Prema and Ganesh J., mother and uncle of the missing person, Jethendran a/l Mahatheven. Reporters were informed by Ganesh J. that Jethendran, aged 16, had been missing since 25th January 2013.

On 25th January 2013, on or around 12.30pm, Jethendran had gone by taxi to a gymnasium in Taman Desa by himself. On or around 3.45pm on the same day, Jethendran had called his father, Mahathevan a/l Ramu and informed his father that he would be taking a taxi back home. Unfortunately, that was the last time the father spoke with his son. Jethendran’s family members had since lodge a police report. It has been almost six months since Jethendran went missing but to date, there are no news regarding the whereabouts of Jethendran.

政府应该重新启动跨宗教理事会对话,以促进国内各宗教信徒的谅解与团结

行动党全国副主席郭素沁于201377日(星期日)在吉隆坡发表的文告
 
(吉隆坡7日讯)行动党全国副主席郭素沁呼吁政府重新召开跨宗教对话会,以促进国内各宗教信徒的谅解与团结。
郭素沁说,内阁撤回备受争议的2013年伊斯兰法行政(联邦直辖区)法案是正确的做法,但是这却没解决多年来悬而未决的许多争议性的改教课题。
也是士布爹区国会议员的她说,“这许多涉及宗教敏感的议题,多年来引起各宗教社群的争议,也制造了许多种族和宗教群体间的猜疑和争执,这些都是需要各造通过对话和法律的修订来解决的。”
郭素沁呼吁首相秉着“一个马来西亚“的精神,再启动多年前成立的跨宗教理事会的对话,让各宗教领袖能通过这论坛真诚交流,以和谐的方式来解决许多争议性的宗教冲突课题。

Keterangan Teresa Kok dalam Perbicaraan Kes Saman Malu Terhadap Utusan Malaysia di Mahkamah Pada 26 September 2013 Diputar-belitkan Oleh Blogger Yang Berniat Jahat

YB Teresa Kok menyaman penyunting Utusan Malaysia, Zaini Hasan dan Utusan Malaysia atas artikel Zaini Hasan yang bertajuk “Azan, Jawi, JAIS, UiTM dan ba-alif-ba-ya” yang disiarkan pada 10 September 2008, 2 hari sebelum Teresa Kok ditahan di bawah ISA pada 12 September 2008.

Kes Teresa Kok didengar oleh Mahkamah pada 26 September 2013. Beliau disoal oleh peguam Utusan Malaysia, Mohana Kumar pada sesi pagi dan juga satu setengah jam pada waktu petang pada hari itu.

Dalam sesi pertanyaan peguam Utusan Malaysia, Teresa Kok ditanya soalan samada beliau setuju Malaysia ialah Negara Islam. Teresa Kok mengadu kepada Hakim bahawa adalah susah bagi dia untuk jawab soalan peguam ini kerana jawapannya subjektif dan bergantung kepada persepsi individu. Hakim kemudian minta YB Teresa Kok jawab soalan ini dan beliau pun menjawab bahawa Malaysia bukannya Negara Islam. Peguam Utusan Malaysia kemudian tanya samada ini adalah pendirian DAP, Teresa Kok kata, “Ya.”

Pada waktu petang, bila Teresa Kok ditanya oleh peguamnya Sankara Nair berkenaan dengan projek ladang penternakan Babi yang pernah diheboh-hebohkan oleh Utusan Malaysia pada tahun 2008. Teresa Kok pun memberitahu Mahkamah bahawa Kerajaan Negeri Selangor di bahawa BN dan Khir Toyo pernah memberi kelulusan ladang penternakan babi di Mukim Batu, Kuala Langat. Keputusan tersebut dibuat dalam Mesyuarat Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri Selangor dengan dokumen Kertas EXCO-MTES No : 9/2/2008. Mesyuarat juga mengambil keputusan untuk menimbang dan meluluskan pengambilan tanah seluas 337.09 ekar di Mukim Batu, Kuala Langat untuk tujuan Modern Pig Farming di bawah Seksyen 3(1)(a) Akta Pengambilan Balik Tanah 1960.

Teresa Kok juga memberitahu Yang Arif Hakim Puan Siti Khatijah Badjenid bahawa tujuan kerajaan Negeri Selangor untuk membincangkan dasar yang diluluskan oleh kerajaan Negeri Selangor BN tersebut adalah demi penjagaan alam sekitar dan demi mencegahkan pencemaran yang diakibatkan oleh ladang penternakan babi individu di Sepang.

Beliau juga menegaskan bahawa Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Khalid pernah mengeluarkan kenyataan bahawa projek ladang penternakan babi diluluskan oleh kerajaan BN Selangor sebelum Pakatan Rakyat mengambil-alihnya, tetapi kenyataan MB Selangor tidak disiarkan oleh Utusan Malaysia.

Saya menyaksikan keseluruhan perbicaraan tersebut merasa hairan bagaimana hujah Teresa Kok di dalam Mahkamah tersebut dipesongkan oleh blogger politik yang berniat jahat. Beberapa penulis blog yang berniat jahat berkenaan menuduh Teresa Kok menolak Islam sebagai agama rasmi Malaysia, di samping menuduh Teresa Kok anti-Melayu. 

Blogger berkenaan sengaja mengubah versi jawapan dan keterangan Teresa Kok dalam kes saman malu Teresa Kok terhadap Utusan.

Beberapa wartawan juga turut hadir mendengar perbicaraan kes saman malu Teresa Kok terhadap Utusan Malaysia. 

Teresa Kok tidak pernah mengeluarkan kenyataan yang menafikan agama Islam sebagai agama Persekutuan sepanjang keterangannya di Mahkamah. Sekiranya beliau pernah berkata sedemikian, ia tentu akan dilaporkan dalam media oleh wartawan yang hadir dalam perbicaraan mahkamah.

Jelasnya penulis blog berkenaan mempunyai niat jahat untuk memutar-belitkan keterangan Teresa Kok demi tujuan politik semasa perbicaraan tersebut.

Chua Tee Yong Misleads Again: GLCs Should Follow State’s Instruction

Pess statement by Teresa Kok, Exco for Selangor Government On 27th July 2012 at Shah Alam 

Chua Tee Yong Misleads Again: GLCs Should Follow State’s Instruction

 I am shocked by the accusation made by Chua Tee Yong yesterday that KHSB was forced to buy the RM44.7 million worth of properties from Talam Corporation.  
 
KHSB as a state subsidiary is required to follow or adhere to policies stipulated by the state government.
In this context, Chua’s argument makes no sense as KHSB would not have bought the said properties.

I wish to point out to Chua that the previous settlement agreements entered with Talam & Selangor BN state government, involved only a portion of debts with Unisel and not the other State agencies. Although, an agreement was reached but it could not be concluded due to the land encumberence and the previous government  was not as innovative as Pakatan to look at ways and means on how to secure  land ownership from the bank to the State or State agencies.

On the RM30 million excess fund issue repeatedly raised by Chua, the actual usage of the excess fund is for statutory expenses required to perfect the transfer of the land to the State or State agencies or buyers.  
In addition, due to the time required for Talam shareholders’ approval, the bank redemption sum may increase, and thus, the excess sum is to cover this as well as to ensure that the State will get back no less than RM392 million at the end of the exercise.

郭素沁指陈元虎在沙叻秀大街排水系统问题上後知後觉

民主行动党士布爹区国会议员 郭素沁27-7-2012(星期五)於吉隆坡发表文告

(吉隆坡27日讯)民主行动党士布爹区国会议员郭素沁指陈元虎在沙叻秀大街排水系统问题上,後知後觉,根本没有资格指责她没积极为民争取。

 

她指出,陈元虎身为吉隆坡市政局谘询理事会成员,他有权力指使市政局成员办事,但是他从当地居民去年投诉至今,他根本对当地问题不闻不问。现在才出来开记者会指责她,根本就是意图博取政治宣传。

 

她说,沙叻秀大街的沟渠排水受阻问题,她从去年开始便一直跟隆市政局官员跟进,惟市政局却漠视民意,一直迟迟不愿拨款修理沟渠以及召见该地地主把围墙拆除。

 

她反问陈元虎作为市政局谘理会成员,有否曾在定期召开的会议里,向市长和相关官员,反映沙叻秀大街商民的要求?

 

“陈元虎有这个权利和责任,影响市政局采取必要的行动;否则,如果陈元虎在会议上静若寒蝉,但在会议之外却咆哮的做法,无疑旨在博取政治宣传。”

 

郭素沁今天发表文告说,她会见该地区商民丶率领市政局官员到场巡视丶具函向市政局和会见市长陈情等,都有剪报和文案记录,不容陈元虎蓄意诬赖。

 

她说, “陈元虎在市政局比我还更有权力,但是他到今天才出来巡视沙叻秀当地的问题, 这根本就是失责!”

 

“我奉劝陈元虎,扮演好他作为谘理会成员的角色,以行动来表现,不要没做事还随意无的放矢。”

郭素沁批评卫生部不重视退休村计划,并使到外国人要来马投资退休村的计划受阻。

(吉隆坡28日讯)民主行动党全国组织秘书兼士布爹区国会议员郭素沁批评卫生部,毫不重视在大马设立退休村计划的议题,这也将使到要吸引外国人来马投资退休村的计划受阻。

她说,根据国家统计局的数据显示,截至2010年,大马已有270万名乐龄人士,预计到了2020年时,人数将飙升至340万人。

她指出,随着时代的进步,人们都有了保健的概念,大马人的平均寿命比以前延长了许多,但出生率却频频下降,所以政府应该重视及开始规划如何安置乐龄人士这个课题。

郭素沁今天针对卫生部拒绝回答她在国会的休会演词和在过去的口头询问提出退休村计划,发表文告指出,她对卫生部不严正看待上述事项感到遗憾。

也是雪州高级行政议员的她表示,虽然大马拥有很好的生活环境,可惜仅有1万7千 名 外国人参与马来西亚第二家园计划。

“若政府要让这个计划成功,必须致力於将大马转化为其中一个退休胜地,建设更多退休村给外国退休的富商,从而吸引更多外国人投资这项计划。”

她表示,许多外国公司及本地发展商都非常有兴趣建退休村,只是他们发现大马并没有一套明确的指南和方针,指引他们建造像澳洲丶台湾等标准的退休村。

“退休村最重要的是有老年护理病房,让那些长期卧病的乐龄人士得到治疗;普通的诊疗所是不能给予病人晚间的治疗,除非有有关诊所向卫生部申请,而且申请程序还挺复杂的。

“以我们现有的法令,即1993年看护中心法令丶 1971年私立医院法和2008年残疾人士法令來看,都不适用於拥有老年护理病房的退休村计划。”

她呼吁卫生部重视退休村计划,并开始研究澳洲的退休村的制度与相关法令,好让发展商能为大马建造更多退休村,以照顾乐龄人士的福利。
