Shame on you, Umno MPs!

Both Bung Mohktar Radin (Kinabatangan) and Mohamad Said Yusuf (Jasin)should be suspended immediately.These two Umno MPs have degraded the august Parliament into a ‘circus’. Don’t they know that such shameful remarks would have also irked their own family members including their wives, daughters, sisters, mothers and grandmothers? It’s also shameful for fellow MPs from the BN bench (especially fellow lady MPs) for not supporting Fong Po Kuan. Shame on you, Wanita BN!Such shameful acts of the BN MPs have also dampened the spirit of celebrating this year’s Mother’s Day (falls on this Sunday).Youtube上载遭2议员羞辱短片
冯宝君将在选区掀起抗议运动
07年5月11日 晚上8:18 Malaysiakini
国阵两名巫统议员莫哈末赛益(左图)以及邦莫达(右图),日前讥讽民主行动党华都牙也区国会议员冯宝君“每月都会bocor一次”的侮辱性言论,已经引起举国哗然。网友更把有关国会议员出言不逊,羞辱女性的辩论片段,上载到人气旺盛的Youtube影象网站。一名匿称为“sweekuan1”的网民,昨日把本月9日的国会会议情况,在youtube网站上载了一段约6分钟的短片。结果,有关短片截至今天傍晚八时已有432次的点击次数。(欲观赏,请点击 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqnw-q93wyc呈讨论国会漏水动议引发激辩行动党古晋区国会议员张建仁是在星期三的国会下议院下午复会时,提呈动议要求国会针对国会大厦漏水事件进行讨论,并宣称这动议也是以在场采访的媒体记者和国会议员的安全为考量。不过对此动议不满的国阵后座议员,立刻大声指责张建仁滥用权力。此时,国会反对党领袖兼民主行动党怡保东区国会议员林吉祥也加入舌战。林吉祥:“有六处漏水,请问这个地方安全吗?政府耗资1亿零吉的建筑费,为何还会发生这样的事?以前也发生过,为何现在还再次发生”张建仁附议:“对,屋顶漏水”。邦莫达揶揄:“屋顶漏水,那我不安全吗?”林吉祥:“这已不是第一次发生”。邦莫达:“都说了已经正在调查”。林吉祥追问:“这种事怎么可以发生?”。一些国阵后作座议员回应:“为什么不可以,我家也会漏水阿”。

国会下议院副议长林时清:“政府已采取行动,大家请不要再争论此事”。

野新区国会议员莫哈末赛益:“唛啦”(福建话)

古拉抗议:“这件事情根本就是涉及到贪污”。

莫哈末赛益:“政府已采取行动了”。

古拉继称:“我们有眼睛可以看到真相,或许你的一只眼睛或半只眼睛关着了”。
……

邦莫达:“华都牙也国会议员每个月都在漏”。

赛益:“对啊,华都牙也国会议员每个月都在漏”。

短片显示,邦莫达在听毕此言后,不禁裂嘴大笑,然后才肯坐下。

议长以没即时抗议为由拒绝处置

冯宝君(右图)在饱受“屈辱”后心有不甘,而援引议会常规提出将邦莫达及赛益提交国会特权委员会处置的动议;但却遭到国会议长南利,以当事人必须在事发时针对不当的谈话提出即时的抗议,才能够被接纳的技术理由,驳回动议。

冯宝君在事后表示,对于女性遭到辱骂感到非常遗憾。而在场的行动党士布爹区议员郭素沁、怡保东区国会议员林吉祥及怡保西区国会议员古拉皆力挺冯宝君。

张建仁则质疑议长采用双重标准,称当初武吉牛汝莪区国会议员卡巴星在挑起“左右手宣誓”数日后,就被提呈特委会对付,并被禁足国会6个月,但两位议员提出有辱女性的言论却没被对付。

此一方面,为了抗议巫统两名议员的羞辱言论,冯宝君将会于本周日晚上在其国会选区正式展开抗议行动。

冯宝君昨日已经在国会宣布她将会领导一项以行动党为主的抗议运动,让唤醒大马人民关注女性不但在国家、甚至在国会中所受到的不公平对待,以及号召全国支持,要求勿让两名犯上性别歧视的国阵国会议员不应该在他们可鄙的举止,不受惩罚的情况下,就此脱罪。

这项抗议运动将会在本周日晚上在冯宝君的选区华都拉也正式展开。但是,在还没有推行星期日的正式运动之前,怡保东区行动党先在明天(星期六)晚上的怡保兵如港支部座谈会上,声援冯宝君的抗议运动。

林吉祥遗憾没国阵女议员挺身而出

此外,林吉祥(左图)也特别针对没有任何一名国阵女性议员站出来,声援被两名国阵议员羞辱的冯宝君和全体马来西亚女性,感到遗憾。

“难道没有任何一名国阵的女性国会议员会站出来捍卫女性的尊严,并且谴责对宝君作出诋毁性、粗鲁、性别歧视和具伤害性言论的两名国阵国会议员?”

他也接到消息说国际妇女组织对于国会昨天可耻的一幕表示震惊,并将会公开谴责两名性别歧视的国阵国会议员。

“在国阵掌控91巴仙国会下议院多数议席的情况下,公正和公平的原则根本不能在国会伸展。现在就让马来西亚上下的普通公民,恢复国会的名誉以及马来西亚女性的尊严,站出来给予宝君支持与声援,以及针对两名国阵国会议员所作出的诋毁性、性别歧视性、羞辱全国女性的言论作出谴责。”

他指出,国会议长南里在冯宝君于昨天10时早上的国会会议站起来,以国会常规第26(1)(p)提呈特权动议,以发表粗鲁、诋毁性、性别歧视性和伤害性言论的理由,要求将两名性别歧视的国阵国会议员带上国会特权委员会处置的时候,并没有即刻拒绝该项动议。

反而,南里要求更多的时间,在下午2时半宣布他的决定。

“这只会显示出南里对宝君投诉中的要点、对于具性别歧视的国会议员滥用国会特权诋毁一名女性议员以及侮辱全体马来西亚女性的论点表示赞同,所以他并没有即刻拒绝宝君的动议。”

很不幸及很错误的,最后南里决定以技术性理由拒绝宝君的特权动议,无视投诉当中的重点并留下两项课题还没有获得解决:

–两名国阵议员鉴于冯宝君是一名女性国会议员而公开诋毁和羞辱她;

–国会议员的特权遭到滥用,以作出如此粗鲁、粗鄙、性别歧视和伤害性的言论,让国家最高政治和立法机构的声誉后退。

–这种侮辱性的动作不单单针对宝君,而包括全体马来西亚女性。在国会可以被如此滥用,提出这类粗俗、贬低性和具性别歧视言论的情况下,导致今年的母亲节已经成为最没有意义的母亲节。

Motion over ‘menstruation’ remarks rejected
Ooi Kelly and Bede Hong

Malaysiakini
The Dewan Rakyat today rejected a motion by Opposition MP Fong Po Kuan who wanted two BN members of Parliament censured for making comments about her menstruation.Amidst pandemonium that broke out during the afternoon’s debate over the leaks in Parliament yesterday, Bung Mokhtar Radin (BN – Kinabatangan) had stood and made off-mike comments over the Batu Gajah parliamentarian’s menstrual cycle.His comments were carried today by Utusan Malaysia, China Press and Sin Chew Daily.Mohd Said Yusof (BN – Jasin) was also named for censure making similar remarks.This morning, Fong called for a motion under the Standing Order 26 (1P) to refer the two BN MPs to the Committee of Privileges.

However Speaker Ramli Ngah Talib shot down the motion, with reason that the issue was not raised at the time of incident.

Technical knock out

DAP MPs protested that they had not heard the comments made by the two BN MPs due to the commotion in the House.

“During the incident at 12:37 pm yesterday, the offending remarks were uttered. The YBs have a chance to voice their displeasure (then). However, this issue was put forth only this morning,” said Ramli.

“As the matter must be raised at the time of the incident, and the issue occurred yesterday, I must reject the motion for the Standing Order,” he added.

Opposition leader Lim Kit Siang protested: “… the remarks were not heard yesterday. There was chaos and pandemonium. The earliest that we knew of the remarks was this morning when the comments were published [by several national dailies].”

“Do we allow this sexist, offensive remarks to pass. They are celebrating, that the motion is rejected,” said Lim, pointing at BN MPs who were thumping at their desks.

De-facto law minister Nazri Aziz, who read out the bills of the day, left the Dewan Rakyat at this juncture.

Insulting to all women

In a press conference later, Fong expressed her regret over the decision: “I feel sad that no woman MP in the Dewan just now voiced their objection to the comments that were insulting to all women.

DAP MP Teresa Kok said the matter was not new: “Each time a gender sensitive issue comes out … each time derogatory remarks were made against women, there is no action taken by the speaker.”

Lim said, “The Kinabatangan MP (Mokhtar) behaved as though he has no mother, or daughters or sisters. And the BN can thump unashamedly at the rejection of the motion on technical ground.”

Lim called on the prime minister to “discipline the two BN MPs.”

Both MPs did not deny making the comments.

When reproached by M Kulasegaran (DAP – Ipoh Barat) at this morning’s debate session, Mohd Said replied, “She shouldn’t have shouted like that when I wanted to discuss important things.”

To censure a fellow MP, backbenchers and the opposition have the option of raising a substantive motion. The motion, however, requires a week’s notice and is not required for open debate.

 Grim and bleak Mother’s Day

Ketuanan Melayu – are students taught that this is mere history which contradicts Bangsa Malaysia and Vision 2020? »

Is there not a single woman BN MP who will stand up for Po Kuan and women dignity and condemn the sexist BN MP duo?

The Speaker, Tan Sri Ramli Talib did not instantly reject the privilege motion under Standing Order 26(1)(p) when it was tabled by DAP MP for Batu Gajah Fong Po Kuan who had stood up in the Dewan Rakyat when it started its meeting yesterday at 10 am to refer the two sexist Barisan Nasional (BN) MPs for making crude, derogatory, sexist and offensive remarks directed at Po Kuan in particular and women in general.

Instead, Ramli asked for time for him to announce his decision at 2.30 pm.

This could only mean that Ramli was convinced of the strength and merit of Po Kuan’s complaint – which was indeed very serious with sexist MPs abusing their parliamentary privilege to denigrate a woman MP, which is also a slur to all Malaysian women – that he did not immediately dismiss Po Kuan’s application.

It is both wrong and unfortunate that in the end, Ramli decided to “knock out” Po Kuan’s privilege motion on a ground of technicality, ignoring the substantive complaint and leaving unresolved two issues:

• The public dishonouring and humiliation of Po Kuan because she is a woman MP by two sexist BN MPs;

• The misuse and abuse of their parliamentary privilege to besmirch and dishonour Parliament in demeaning and degrading the highest political and legislative chamber in the land to make crude, vulgar, sexist and offensive remarks.

• The insult not only to Po Kuan but to all Malaysian women, making this year’s Mother’s Day the most meaningless one, when Parliament could be exploited to make vulgar, derogatory and sexist remarks.

I am particularly disappointed that no woman BN MP had stood up in solidarity with Po Kuan and all Malaysian women who were insulted by the two sexist BN MPs.

Is there not a single woman BN MPs who will stand up to speak up for women dignity and condemn the two sexist BN MPs for their derogatory, crude, sexist and offensive remarks about Fong Po Kuan?

I have received information that international women groups are horrified by the disgraceful episode in Parliament yesterday and they will be making public their condemnation of the sexist misconduct of the two BN MPs.

With 91% parliamentary majority of BN, there is no access to justice and fair play in Parliament. It is now left to ordinary Malaysians all over the country to redeem the honour of Parliament and dignity of women in Malaysia by speaking up to demonstrate support and solidarity with Po Kuan and condemnation of the two sexist BN MPs for their derogatory and sexists remarks which insult all Malaysian women.

Po Kuan announced in Parliament yesterday that she will be heading a DAP protest campaign to make Malaysians aware of the injustices faced by women not only in the country but even in Parliament, and to mobilize national support both women and men to demand that the two sexist BN MPs should not be allowed to get away with their despicable conduct with impunity.

The protest campaign will start in Po Kuan’s constituency in Batu Gajah on Sunday night. However, even before the start of the formal campaign on Sunday, DAP in Ipoh Timur will extend full pre-campaign support and solidarity to Po Kuan at the ceramah at the DAP Pasir Pinji Branch, Ipoh tomorrow (Saturday) night.

  4. Jim Says:

    That 2 buggers have already forgotten that it’s also their mother who leaks once a month who bring them to this world. I felt sorry for their moms as tomorrow is Mother’s Day.

    PJ Action Team will be giving away carnations at the Seapark market tomorrow morning to mark Mother’s Day. The team will be led by DAP SG Lim Guan Eng.

    Leaking roof and House of Parliament

    I agree that the MP for Batu Gajah also leaks once a month but the MP’s who said same in Parliament evidently forgot that their great, great grandmothers, great grandmothers, grandmothers, grandaunts, mothers and aunties also leaked once a month and that their wives, sisters, daughters and nieces are also leaking monthly too.
