MCA c/o the government?

From the left: Lim Lip Eng, Lau Weng San, Soo Pak Leong and Tiew Wey Kheng at the pc @ DAP Selangor office yesterday.

MCA leaders including Ong Tee Kiat, the deputy minister of higher education, have no answers to questions raised by Soo Pak Leong of Raub , Pahang. Soo, 26, has applied to join the police force as a cadet ASP or Inspector three times but he was rejected simply because his diploma, advanced diploma (both were Science) and a B Sc degree with Campbell University( all through Tunku Abdul Rahman College) were not recognised by the National Accreditation Board (LAN) and Public Service Department (JPA).

MCA must explain why the academic qualifications of TARC were not accredited by the Malaysian authority after almost 40 years since its inception. Is MCA part of the government or merely care of (c/o) the government?

TARC was formed in 1969 at a time when the Chinese community was demanding to set up the Merdeka University. MCA has set up TARC as a political tool to cool down  the Chinese sentiments when Merdeka University was rejected by the then Alliance (now BN) Government. 50% of the fund came from the government and the remaining half has to be raised by TARC itself.

All these years, the college enjoys the great support of the Chinese community and the community in general is now shocked to learn that the academic qualifications were still not recognised by the Malaysian government.

TARC has produced many good students and professionals over the years and we do not see why MCA leaders have failed to get their academic qualifications recognised by the Umno-led BN governnment. Shame on you, MCA leaders.

As long as these qualifications were not recognised by LAN and JPA, graduates of TARC will never be able to join the police force or any other government departments as a civil servant. It’ s certainly not fair and unjust to TARC graduate like Soo Pak Leong and their parents who have trusted TARC.

 Who says Chinese youth were not interested in joining the police force?

GuangMing Daily has the story…

拉曼生斥未獲回應
部長電郵信箱形同虛設

updated:2007-04-08 12:35:27 MYT

■蘇柏良(右)指出,他不僅多次發出電郵給高教部副部長,同時也發給多位馬華正副部長,可是都不曾獲得回應,並駁斥拿督翁詩傑早前表示不曾收到他的投訴文案的說法。左起為劉天球、劉永山。(放大)

吉隆坡訊)針對拉曼院畢業生申訴拉曼學院的學術資格不受公共服務局承認一事,高等教育部副部長拿督翁詩傑前表示不曾收到該名畢業生的投訴文案。該名畢業生則駁斥稱他不僅多次發郵給高教部副部長,同時也把電郵發給多位馬華正副部長,講述他所面對的不公平待遇。他聲稱自電郵發出以來不曾獲得任何一方的回應,讓他覺得部長的電郵信箱形同虛設。

這名拉曼畢業生蘇柏良(27歲,網絡工程師)週六(7日)通過雪州行動黨召開記者會時指出,他曾為了此事多番聯絡公共服務局,甚至電郵給首相及馬華所有部長,結果大都未獲得回應。
曾發電郵給9部長

他曾於去年6月21日第一次寄發電郵給9位馬華部長,包括拿督斯里黃家定、拿督陳廣才、拿督蔡細歷、拿督黃燕燕、拿督翁詩傑、拿督廖中萊、拿督陳財和、拿督林祥才及拿督黃錦鴻。

“由於沒有回應,我於8月16日再次發電郵給這些部長。兩天後,青體部副部長拿督廖中萊的高級機要秘書林英良答覆我的電郵,指馬華會為我據理力爭,並要求我呈上申請書及提供電話號碼。”

8月23日,蘇柏良附上所需文件及電話號碼發電郵給林英良,可是未獲得答覆。他9月5日及29日2次追問林英良有關申請的下落,但依然沒下文。

他說,因此,他在當日寄發電郵給房地部部長拿督黃家定和他的4位秘書,及財政部副部長拿督黃燕燕及秘書。同時他於10月5日也發電郵給拿督翁詩傑。另外,他也在今年1月22日再次追問林英良卻不果。

多封電郵石沉大海
質疑部長沒檢閱

蘇柏良表示他發出的多封電郵至今仍石沉大海,他質疑部長們有否親自檢閱每一封電郵。

“為何我一直發出電郵詢問,但卻沒得到有關方面的回應。我的疑問是到底這些電郵去了哪?馬華的正副部長是否有親自檢閱電郵,還是托他人處理、閱讀和回覆?還是看了卻無動於衷?”

他說,在政府鼓吹一切電腦化的當兒,他通過官方網站,使用電郵發出他的投訴文案,可是他不明白為何部長的政治秘書沒有給予回應。

他聲稱,政府經常鼓勵華人子弟投身政治及警察行業,但如今華裔子弟報讀最多的學院文憑卻不獲認可,那要人民如何參與呢?

“這不只關係到我個人,而是深深影響在籍拉曼生及拉曼畢業生。我也於4月4日親自上門到高教部瞭解實情。”

蘇柏良希望當局關注的3點

●希望高教部能在同一時間內,同時解決拉曼學院高等教育文憑和學術文憑的問題,以便拉曼學院的文憑能受到承認。因為據他瞭解,以拉曼學院文憑想進入本地大學機會很渺茫,因為公共服務局不承認拉曼學院的文憑。

●經過網上資料的查詢,他發現拉曼學院並不在國立大專(IPTA)和私立大專(IPTS)的名單當中,因此希望當局讓公眾知道拉曼學院的定位。

●希望相關部門部長能把他們的個人電郵地址和聯絡方式放在其官方網站或馬華公會的網站上,方便公眾能即時聯絡相關部長解決問題。

劉永山:收集部長電郵很困難

雪州行動黨秘書劉永山表示,蘇柏良獲得的正副部長電郵網址,是他於2005年11月替林吉祥發出緊急電郵時收集所得。他表示收集期間面對很大的困境,因為部長的電郵不是找不到,就是對方沒有親自檢閱電郵。

“對於蘇柏良的問題,拿督廖中萊不曾給予回覆,同時也不曾在馬接補選中辯論。不過,行動黨古晉市國會議員兼社青團署理團長張健仁已於4月2日在國會中替蘇柏良伸張正義,而有關官員也拿了蘇的資料。因此,我們希望在下週一的國會中,高教部及首相署部長能對此事做出交代。”

另一方面,行動黨非政府組織局主任劉天球認為,馬華在此事件中,不應該圍繞著是否收到投訴者電郵的事項,而是儘快解決及爭取拉曼學院文憑的認可。

新聞背景‧文憑不受承認
拉曼生當不了警察

政府積極鼓勵華裔當警察,不過,拉曼學院畢業生蘇柏良(來自勞勿)卻投訴,他從2003至2006年3次申請當見習警官皆被拒,當局給予的理由是,拉曼學院文憑不受公共服務局承認。如今27歲的他已“超齡”,不能再應考警官,讓從小立志擔任警察的他大失所望。 (光明日報‧2007.04.08)

    I thought that TAR University and TAR College are the saviours of the Chinese who cannot get a place in public universities and at the same time too poor to go overseas. Looks like there is no hope for my children.

  2. Salute Says:

    This prove that MCA is a parasite party. It depend on UMNO shit to survive.

    How can MCA help the Chinese? Even their own TAR College are not able to get JPA recognition!

    (八打靈再也訊)亞洲策略及領導研究院董事兼公共政策研究中心主席丹斯里拉蒙週二(4月17日)說,高教部應改革開放,包括委任有賢能的非土著任大學校長,才能追隨國際的步伐。

    “沒可能大馬獨立50年至今,沒有一位華人或印度人有能力擔任大學校長。”

    他認為,有關單位應信任非土著的能力,並委以重任領導大學。

    指大專法令束縛學生思想

    他在第11屆大馬教育峰會閉幕禮上也說,大專法令限制了大學生的發言權。

    “大學生常被批評說得太多或常講錯話,縛手縛腳的大專法令讓大部份大學生失去了判斷與獨立思考的能力。”

    他說,這也造成大學生不能獨立處事,以致畢業後無法在短期間內找到工作,造成大學畢業生失業率高居不下。

    高教部副部長拿督翁詩傑說,他會把拉蒙提出的部份建議向部長反映。

    翁詩傑:81科系全獲承認
    拉曼生可申請公務員職

    翁詩傑指出,高等教育部已經批准和承認拉曼學院所申請的81項科系。

    他說,這也意味拉曼學院自1971年開始提供的所有科系,已獲得教育部的認可。

    他指出,這81份批文已轉交到公共服務局處,待該部的認可。

    他說,高教部長拿督慕斯達法也是公共服務局學歷認可委員會主席,相信他們會在月杪的會議上討論這個事項。

    較早前,高等教育部已經批准和承認拉曼學院33項科系的文憑與高級文憑資格。拉曼學院畢業生要進入公共領域當公務員指日可待。

    P/S:
    As said by deputy minister of MOHE, Datuk Ong Tee Keat that TARC 81 courses already approved by MOHE. Now waiting public service department (JPA) meeting and the JPA regconization body is chair by minister of MOHE, Y.B Dato’ Mustapa B. Mohamed and believe that end of this month meeting they will discuss on it.

    Refer to Sin Chew Jit Poh dated at 2007-04-18, as said by deputy minister of MOHE, Datuk Ong Tee Keat that TARC 81 courses already approved by MOHE. Now waiting public service department (JPA) meeting and the JPA regconization body is chair by minister of MOHE, Y.B Dato’ Mustapa B. Mohamed and believe that end of this month meeting they will discuss on it.

    Hopefully JPA will regconise TARC as soon as possible.

    well, after a year of your reported case, most of the courses (more than 83%) conducted at TARC remain not recognised. out of the total 120 odd courses of TARC, only 19 being recognised ( 9 certificate courses, 5 diploma courses and 5 adv.diploma courses). few days ago, another TARC graduate wrote to sin chew complaining about her application to join teacher training course was rejected. and reason of rejection was exactly the same as in your case. how sad. i wonder if DAP/ pakatan rakyat can do something to pressure MCA/ BN to speed up the recognition process? anyway who know if the recognition process still going on? and if it is, why it take so long? you see many newly established universities got their courses recognised just within a year. and TARC has been established for now 39 years!
