Chan Kong Choy on-the-run again

November 20, 2007

 

Outside the 512 Gudang, PKFZ

Chan Kong Choy ran away again! He certainly have no answers for the Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang on the subject of RM4.6 billion PKFZ scandal. The only way out (at least temporary) for him was to run away to London.

Chan also run away from the Rawang people on the issue of high tension transmission towers. He promised to bring the matter to the Cabinet after much pressure from us; more than a month now but nothing has come out from the Cabinet.

Media Conference Statement by Parliamentary Opposition Leader and DAP MP for Ipoh Timur Lim Kit Siang in Parliament on Tuesday, 20th November 2007:

2008 Budget Committee stage debate on Transport Ministry should be stood down until Chan Kong Choy returns from London next week or this is evidence of the Transport Minister on-the-run to escape accountability for the RM4.6 billion Port Klang Free Zone bailout scandal

I was surprised to read a Bernama report last night that the Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy has left for London to attend the 25th International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Assembly and will not be back until later next week.

My immediate reaction is that the Transport Minister is on-the-run from Parliament to escape accountability for the RM4.6 billion Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) bailout scandal, as the committee stage debate on the Transport Ministry for the 2008 Budget is scheduled for this Thursday or latest by Monday – when Chan will still be in London.

This is most irresponsible, as Chan knows that the PKFZ scandal will feature prominently in the debate on the Transport Ministry as for the past three months of the parliamentary meeting, no satisfactory answer had been given to the many issues and questions which I had raised repeatedly about the PKFZ scandal.

In fact, last Monday in Parliament during the committee stage debate on the Finance Ministry, I had posed the specific question as to why the government was “on-the-run” on the RM4.6 billion PKFZ scandal.

I had protested that government ministers were kicking the issue of the RM4.6 billion PKFZ scandal from one Ministry to another, evading accountability by refusing to give a direct answer to many pertinent questions which I had posed – with the ball being kicked among the Prime Minister’s Department, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Transport with no one wanting to give a proper answer.

I had even simplified the questions on the PKFZ scandal which cry out for answer, viz:

1. Was it true that when the Port Klang Authority and the Transport Ministry insisted on buying the 1,000 acres of Pulau Indah land for PKFZ at RM25 psf on a “willing buyer, willing seller” basis, in the face of strong objection by the Attorney-General’s Chambers and the Treasury which had recommended that the land be acquired at RM10 psf, the Cabinet had given its approval subject to two conditions: (i) categorical assurance by the Transport Minister that the PKFZ proposal was feasible and self-financing and would not require any public funding; and (ii) that every RM100 million variation in the development costs of PKFZ would require prior Cabinet approval.
2. In the event, the first condition was breached when the PKFZ project ballooned from RM1.1 billion to RM4.6 billion requiring government intervention and bailout while the second condition was breached with the original PKFZ development costs of RM400 million ballooning to RM2.8 billion without any prior Cabinet approval ever been sought for every RM100 million increase in development costs.

3. The Transport Minister had unlawfully issued four Letters of Support to Kuala Dimensi Sdn. Bhd (KDSB), the PKFZ turnkey contractor – to raise RM4 billion bonds, which were regarded as government guarantees by the market. The Transport Minister had no such powers to issue financial guarantees committing the government, as it could only be issued by the Finance Minister and only after Cabinet approval. The first Letter of Support was issued by the former Transport Minister, Tun Dr. Ling Liong Sik on May 28, 2003, which was Liong Sik’s last day as Transport Minister while the other three were issued by Kong Choy.

4. Whether it wasn’t true that in recognition that the four unlawful “Letters of Support” of the Transport Minister had nonetheless given implicit government guarantee to the market that the Cabinet had in mid-year to give retrospective approval for the unlawful and unauthorized four Letters of Support by the Transport Ministers in the past four years creating RM4.6 billion liability for the government in the bailout of PKFZ.

5. Why no action had been taken against the Transport Minister, both Liong Sik and Kong Choy, as well as the government officials responsible for the unlawful issue of the four “Letters of Support”. Kong Choy had said that he did not know that he had no power as Transport Minister to issue such Letters of Support, Was this an acceptable explanation for getting the government embroiled in the RM4.6 billion PKFZ scandal?

The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Nazri Aziz had said that questions on the PKFZ scandal should rightly be answered by the Transport Minister.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Finance Ministry, Datuk Seri Dr. Hilmi Yahya when pressed on the issue last Monday, asked that he be allowed to answer by way of written reply. When asked when the written reply would be given, he declined to give any firm date on the ground that a proper study had to be done. When I persisted in asking whether an answer could be forthcoming in a week’s time, as this was not a new issue and had been raised for over two months, Hilmi said he would try.

More than a week had passed and I have not yet received any written reply from Helmi, while Chan has run away to London on the pretext of attending the International Maritime Organisation meeting in London.
Chan should be reminded that while his international commitments are important, they should not be allowed to overshadow his responsibilities to Parliament and Malaysians as Transport Minister.

After all, if Chan is not Transport Minister, he would be nothing in the International Maritime Organisation! This is why he must not forget his roots by running away from his primary responsibilities to Parliament and Malaysian taxpayers to evade answer and accountability for the biggest financial scandal in the Abdullah premiership.

If Chan feels that it is very important that he should attend the International Maritime Organisation conference in London which clashes with the parliamentary schedule for the Transport Ministry in the committee stage debate on the 2008 Budget, he could easily ask for the debate on the Transport Ministry to be changed to a later date when he is back from the London Conference.

Chan must stand accused of using the International Maritime Organisation conference in London as an excuse to run away from Parliament and escape accountability for the PKFZ scandal in the 2008 Budget committee stage debate on the Transport Ministry, especially as Chan’s role in the RM4.6 billion PKFZ bailout scandal is a major and central one.

I have given notice of a RM10 cut motion for the salary of Chan as Transport Minister over his major role in the RM4.6 billion PKFZ scandal – and it will be the height of Ministerial irresponsibility and parliamentary cowardice for Chan to run away to London when the Transport Ministry comes up for debate on Thursday or Monday.

I have written a strong protest to the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Nazri Aziz, who is in charge of parliamentary affairs for the Cabinet over the absence of Chan in the debate on the Transport Ministry and to ask that the debate of the Transport Ministry should be stood down until Chan has come back from London to “face the music” over the RM4.6 billion PKFZ bailout scandal.

国会反对党领袖兼民主行动党怡保东区国会议员林吉祥于2007年11月20日(星期二)在国会召开记者会发表的声明:

交通部的2008年度委员会阶段的预算案辩论应展期到陈广才下周从伦敦回国后才进行,否则这将成为证明交通部长在逃循,避免交待46亿令吉拯救巴生港口自由区计划丑闻之证据。

当我从马新社昨晚的报导中获悉交通部长拿督斯里陈广才已飞往伦敦出席第25届国际海洋组织大会,将在下周才回国时,我感到很惊讶。

我的首个反应是,交通部长在逃循,他要躲避而不交待46亿令吉拯救巴生港口自由区计划(PKFZ)的丑闻,因为交通部的2008年度委员会阶段的预算案辩论订在本周四或最迟下周一进行,而陈广才届时仍在伦敦。

这是极不负责任之举,因为陈广才知道,PKFZ丑闻将成为交通部辩论的焦点。在过去3个月的国会会议中,尽管我不断的提出这项丑闻,但许多相关的问题都未获得答案。

其实,上周一在国会的财政部委员会阶段辩论时,我就特别提问,为何政府在逃避PKFZ丑闻问题。

我抗议政府将此丑闻从一个内阁部门踢到另一个内阁部门,针对许多相当关键性的问题都顾左右而言他。这个球在首相署、财政部与交通部之间被踢来踢去,没有一个部门给予应有的答案。

我甚至将各项问题简化,即:

1. 巴生港务局及交通部是否真的尽管面对总检察长署及财政部的强烈反对,并建议以每平方尺10令吉价格徵用之下,仍然坚持在”买者愿买,卖者愿卖”的每平方尺25令吉价格下购买浮罗英达的1000依格土地供作PKFZ用途,而内阁已在两个条件下给予批准:(i)交通部长明确地保证PKFZ计划可行及自行融资,不会花半分钱公款;及(ii)PKFZ发展每增花1亿令吉,都必须先获得内阁的批准。

2.结果,首个条件已被违背,PKFZ的经费从11亿令吉暴涨至46亿令吉而需要政府拯救,而第2个条件也被违背,因为在没有每增加1亿令吉都须经过内阁核准程序下,PKFZ的原有成本额从4亿令吉暴涨至28亿令吉。

3.交通部长违法的发出4封信给PKFZ的总承包商Kuala Dimensi有限公司(KDSB),好让后者通过发出债券集资40亿令吉资金,这形同政府向市场作出担保。交通部长并没有权力作出政府的融资担保,只有财政部长在内阁核准后才能作出。首封支持信是由前交通部长拿督斯里林良实于2003年5月28日发出,当天是林良实担任交长的最后一天。其馀3封是由陈广才发出。

4.这4封交长发出的非法”支持信”仍获得政府的担保,因为内阁在年中以追溯方式核准了两名交长在过去4年里非法与未经授权发出的支持信,使政府为了拯救PKFZ而背负了46亿令吉债务,这种说法是否属实。

5.为何政府至今没对付这两名交长,即林良实及陈广才,以及其他涉及非法发出4封支持信的高官。陈广才说,他不知道交长无权发出这种支持信。这是否能作为政府卷入46亿令吉拯救PKFZ丑闻的借口?

首相署部长拿督斯里纳兹里说,PKFZ丑闻的问题最好由交长解答。

当财政部政务次长拿督斯里希尔米上周一在国会被询及有关问题时,要求以书面作答。当被询及将在何时给予书面答覆时,他没给一个肯定的日期,理由是需要时间研究。当我追问答案是否可以在一周内获得(因为这不是新的课题,而且已提出超过两个月时间)时,希尔米说他会设法。

一周时间已过去,我仍未接到希尔米的答覆,而陈广才却已躲到伦敦去,表面上是要到那里出席国际海洋组织大会。

陈广才应被提醒,履行国际任务固然重要,但身为交长的他,不应因此忽略了他对国会及国人的责任。

而且,如果他不是交长,他在国际海洋组织大会上只能靠边站!因此,他不应忘了本身的责任,不应为了逃避阿都拉政权下最大宗的金融丑闻之问责,而漠视对国会及大马纳税人应尽的责任。

如果陈广才认为,伦敦的大会很重要,必须出席,但又与交通部的辩论撞期,他大可要求将辩论展期至他回国后才进行。

否则的话,陈广才将面对借伦敦大会逃循的指责,即他要避开PKFZ丑闻的问责,尤其是他在丑闻中扮演主要的角色。

我已通知议长,将提呈要将交长陈广才减薪10令吉的动议,如果交通部的2008年度委员会阶段预算案辩论在本周四或下周一进行的话,将会是陈广才高度不负责任与不敢面对国会之举。

我已经致函给负责国会事务的首相署部长拿督斯里纳兹里,抗议陈广才缺席交通部的辩论,并要求将辩论展期到陈广才回国,要他亲自交待PKFZ丑闻的来龙去脉。

‘Runaway’ Chan under fire for missing PKFZ debate
Yoges Palaniappan
Nov 20, 07 2:54pm
Malaysiakini 

Parliamentary Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang today demanded for the committee stage of Supply Bill 2008 debate on Transport Ministry to be postponed until the transport minister returns from his foreign visit next week.

At a press conference held at the Parliament lobby today, an irate Lim said that Transport Minister Chan Kong Choy was on the run from parliament to escape accountability on the RM4.6 billion PKFZ scandal

Bernama reported yesterday that Chan has left for London to attend the 25th International Maritime Organisation (IMO) assembly and will not be back until later next week.

Lim described Chan’s visit as “most irresponsible” because he would still be in London when his ministry is scheduled to wind up the debate on Thursday or the latest by next Monday.

“Chan knows PKFZ scandal will feature prominently in the debate as for the past three months of the parliament sitting, no satisfactory answer had been given to the many issues and questions raised about the scandal,” he said.

“Last Monday, I had protested that government ministers were kicking the issue from one ministry to another, evading accountability by refusing to give a direct answer to many pertinent questions I had posed,” he added.

Answerable to parliament

“When pressed on the issue when the Finance Ministry was winding up the debate, the ministry’s parliamentary secretary Hilmi Yahaya asked that he be allowed to give a written reply.

“More than week has passed and I have yet to receive any written reply from Hilmi, while Chan has run away to London on pretext of attending the assembly.”

Lim reminded Chan that while his international commitments are important, they should not be allowed to overshadow his responsibilities to parliament and Malaysians.

He said Chan would be nothing in the IMO assembly if not for his position as the transport minister.

“This is why he must not forget his roots by running away from his primary responsibilities to parliament and Malaysian taxpayers to evade answer and accountability,” he said.

“If he (Chan) feels that it is important to attend the assembly, he could easily ask for the winding up of debate to be changed to a later date when he’s back from London.”

Lim also said that he had written a protest note to Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Nazri Abdul Aziz, who is in charge of parliamentary affairs, over the absence of Chan.

Over-priced project

“I have asked for the winding-up debate by the Transport Ministry should be stood down until Chan has come back from London to face the music over the PKFZ scandal.”

Chan’s role in the grossly overpaid PKFZ project included issuing letters of support to contractor Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd to raise RM4 billion bonds.

The minister had no such powers to issue financial guarantees committing the government, as it could only be issued by the Finance Minister after cabinet approval.

After a litany of complaints ranging from mismanagement and inflated financial costs, the government said that it would give a soft loan to Port Klang Authority to ensure the success of the PKFZ project.

Rawang HTZ: A victory for the people!

June 25, 2007
It’s a case of “satu hati” Vs “suka hati” (borrowing Sdr M Batumalai’s words) in today’s dramatic tussle between the Rawang villagers and TNB officials.

More than a hundred villagers managed to prevent TNB workers to start work on the high tension transmission project. We insisted that all works have to stop before a solution or agreement be reached between the villagers and the Federal and Selangor state governments.After our protest, the TNB officials have no choice but to leave the site.

I must thank the workers for refilling the big hole they have dug earlier to prevent a potential tragedy from happening.

After the protest, the authority now sets a new date for discussion and negotiation with the Rawang Anti High Tension Transmission Project Action Committee and affected landowners on Friday 29 June 2007 @9am at the Selayang Land Office.

Both Chan Kong Choy and Tang See Hang were said to be present on the day. I will be there too as the advisor of the committee.

TV8 also sent its team to cover the event and it was broadcasted over its 8pm Mandarin news a while ago. TV3 was also there to cover the entire event.

Saty tuned.

百余人力阻国能动工建电缆
万挠村民今天再打赢一仗!

■日期/Jun 24, 2007   ■时间/06:24:50 pm
■新闻/家国风云   ■作者/Merdekareview庄迪澎
           
【本刊庄迪澎撰述】国家能源公司(国能)职员今天到雪兰莪州万挠新村动工兴建高压电缆的部份工程,百多名村民拉着布条赶到现场阻止铲泥机(神手)继续挖掘深坑。由于双方各不让步,场面一度僵持不下,但一个多小时之后却戏剧性收场,国能让神手司机将已挖掘的深坑重新填回,收队离开,村民则为打赢了一仗而鼓掌欢呼!国能(营运与技术)高级副主席莫哈末西迪在本月19日向媒体宣布,雪州行政议会决定在万挠新村兴建高压电缆已成定局,高压电缆不会绕道而行,而且将在今天(6月24日)动工。【点击:广才承诺解决•国能宣布动工 万挠村民要以庭令阻高压电缆】成立“争取高压电缆绕道工委会”消息见报后,万挠“反对高压电五人小组”召集村民会商,并在昨晚成立了一个由21名村民组成的“万挠新村争取高压电缆绕道、反对逼迁工委会”,由原五人小组成员吴亚九担任主席。万挠新村居民两年前接获通知,国能计划在新村附近兴建高压电缆,并要求该村51户人家搬迁。村民拒绝国能的赔偿建议,坚决捍卫家园。后来村民成立了五人小组,展开反对高压电缆运动。

“万挠新村争取高压电缆绕道、反对逼迁工委会”今天上午11时在万挠新村召开记者会,多名党团代表都赴会声援村民,包括民主行动党非政府组织秘书刘天球、人民公正党总财政梁自坚、雪兰莪州署理主席李成金、隆雪华青团长陈松林及委员李英伟。

记者会中途,已有村民村民报告,国能职员已在新村范围动工;此时,刘天球号召村民在记者会结束后到现场阻止动工。

记者会在中午12时左右结束后,一百多个村民拉着布条,浩浩荡荡的步行到大约一公里外的动工地点。村民一到现场,其中一人看到神手已经挖掘了一个面积大约一百平方米的深坑,手持一份公文非常激动的冲上前,蓦地跪下,一时也吓坏了那名神手司机。

由于在万挠新村兴建高压电缆的纠纷仍在斡旋中,村民们不满国能单方面擅自动工,因此情绪有些许激动及鼓噪;不过,村民们仍然十分克制,间中虽有高声叫喊将深坑填回,但没有发生肢体冲突。

陪同村民到场的刘天球、李成金及梁自坚等人则与在场的国能高级职员交涉,要对方即刻停工离开现场;不过,国能职员宣称,国能是在政府的土地上动工,而且获得州政府批准,村民无权阻止。

陈广才无法找到替代路线?

刘天球告诉在场的国能雪兰莪州区经理沙尼阿末(Sani Ahmad),能源、水务及通讯部长林敬益、士拉央区国会议员陈广才、万挠区州议员邓诗汉、能讯部高级官员、国能高级管理层和五人小组曾在5月23日达成协议,给陈广才及邓诗汉一个月的时间寻求解决方案,以便将高压电路线转移到另一可行的绕道地点。

陈广才当时向媒体宣布,解决方案是把高压电路线转移到连接瓜雪亚三爪哇(Asam Jaya)和万挠邓普勒花园(Templer Park)的拉达高速公路(LATAR Highway)右边,绕过万挠新村。【点击:陈广才一个月内寻解决方案 万挠高压电事件或绕道解决】

不过,沙尼阿末(左图)却说,所谓一个月时间是用来决定高压电缆的路线,而现在雪兰莪州政府已经决定了按照原来的路线兴建高压电缆,不会绕道。万挠高压电缆工程高级经理阿兹敏(Azmin)甚至一度告诉刘天球,陈广才和邓诗汉告诉国能,他们无法找到用来绕道的替代路线。

当刘天球转身向媒体重复阿兹敏的说法,并问地方能否引述他的名字后,阿兹敏就不愿载证实上述说法。

沙尼阿末也一再重复说,他们今天动工的地点是政府地,不归村民所有,因此村民无权干涉;他也要刘天球等人先去了解实情。

刘天球及吴亚九等人不同意沙尼阿末的说法,吴亚九说,沙尼阿末并没有出席5月23日的会谈,因此不了解实况;吴亚九也点出在场的万挠高压电缆工程高级经理阿兹敏(Azmin)曾出席会谈,他应该告诉沙尼实况。

刘天球(右图右)也告诉沙尼阿末等国能高级职员,雪兰莪州政府迄今从未对此事发表声明,而且倘若雪州政府真的决定按照原来路线兴建高压电缆,以及准许国能在这片所谓“政府地”动工,必有公函。因此,他要求对方出示公函。

沙尼却回应说:“你要看公函,就正式写信给我们。”刘天球反驳对方道:“你这是官僚主义作风”,并告诉对方,如果无法出示公函,就应该立即停工离开。

结果双方一直在有没有州政府公函,以及没有公函是否能动工的问题上僵持不下;沙尼阿末一度沉不住气,拉高声量向刘天球叫喊:“是你固执!”刘天球见状,对站在沙尼阿末的身旁的另一名国能职员慕希丁(Mohiddin)说:“叫你的朋友别提高声量。”后来,沙尼阿末退到一旁,不再和刘天球对话。

下周五土地局会商

阿兹敏一度问“万挠新村争取高压电缆绕道、反对逼迁工委会”秘书王仲辉,如果国能出示州政府公函,是不是就让国能继续动工;刘天球和王仲辉都说,村民这方不能做此承诺。

尽管如此,中午12时40分左右,国能方面却突然答应回去八打灵再也的办公室取信,让工委会代表过目,并说大约一小时后回来;过后,沙尼阿末和其中几名职员开车离开现场,阿兹敏和慕希丁则留在现场。

一小时之后,沙尼阿末等人并没有带着所谓的州政府公函回到现场;阿兹敏却突然通知刘天球,说接到邓诗汉的电话通知,不但国能收队,也要“万挠新村争取高压电缆绕道、反对逼迁工委会”及刘天球等人在下周五(6月29日)上午9时30分到土地局会商解决此事。

得悉消息后,村民都很雀跃,纷纷神手司机把已挖出来的泥土重新推回深坑。刘天球等人也继续和阿兹敏交涉,要他们吩咐神手司机将深坑填回;阿兹敏后来也同意了。

当两架神手分工将泥土推回深坑时,村民都涌到深坑旁鼓掌欢呼;直到深坑填回后,村民们才离开现场。

今年5月17日,国能承包商也曾到万挠新村动工兴建高压电缆,同样遭村抗议和阻止;双方协商了三至四个小时,万挠警局副主任苏巴马尼安(Subramaniam)后来接获“上头”指示,国能技术人员、工程承包商、警察才陆续离开动工地点。当时,接获消息的邓诗汉曾表示会亲身前来,后来却不见人影。【点击:万挠人阻国能建高压电缆 邓诗汉讲要来却不见人影】

万挠新村位于陈广才所属的士拉央国会议席及邓诗汉所属的万挠州议席,陈广才也是马华公会署理总会长及交通部长,而邓诗汉自1982年便当选万挠州议员,迄今已经六届,他自1999年大选后出任雪州行政议员,目前掌管投资、工业与贸易事务。

萬撓新村高壓電纜工程動工
逾百村民包圍國能承包商
阻建高壓電纜掀罵戰

超過百名村民包圍住泥機,喝止司機立即停工離開,場面險失控。

China Press

(萬撓24日訊)萬撓新村今早展開高壓電纜興建工程,逾百位村民聞風而至,與國能職員及承包商激烈爭執,場面火爆!

由于村民的情緒激動,國能職員逗留約兩個小時后,在萬撓區州議員拿督鄧詩漢的來電指示下撤退,定于本月29日在土地局舉行對話會,再作談判。

今日上午10時左右,行動黨中委劉天球及雪華堂青年團,在萬撓新村舉行高壓電纜匯報會。

11時許,10多名國能職員及承包商,攜同兩輛神手進入新村,引起轟動。

國能及承包商在廟宇旁挖掘土地,但很快被聞風而至的村民團團包圍,阻止對方。

劉天球促請對方出示雪州政府的批准信,但是對方一再推辭,強調劉天球必須致函國能總部來索取信件,他的答覆引起村民不滿。

村民與承包商僵持近1小時,國能接獲上層指示立即填回坑洞撤退,這場糾紛才和平結束。

劉天球強調,較早前的會議上已議決,交由鄧詩漢及士拉央區國會議員陳廣才一個月時間,來尋找交替地點建高壓電纜,豈料言猶在耳,國能卻迫不及待動工。

國能澄清,他們已經確定,所有建議的交替地點並不適用,所以決定在原地動工。

雙方各執己見,場面火爆,大約半小時后,國能同意讓步,回到總部領取批准信。

這時,村民要求神手司機停止挖土,不過國能職員很快就折返,結果無法得逞。

下午1時許,中區強化計劃(CAR)高級經理阿茲敏接獲鄧詩漢來電,指示國能及承包商先撤離新村,待本月29日會議再作商討。

國能同意撤離,更把已挖掘的土地,重新填好。

無論如何,阿茲敏強調,國能興建高壓電纜的地段,屬于國能保留地,並沒有重新征地,所以沒有違法。

續採法律行動保護家園
“村民堅決不搬”

劉天球(右2)代表村民與國能代表談判,要求出示施工批准信卻遭拒,雙方僵持近半小時;左起為梁自堅及李成金。

爭取繞道、反對逼遷、萬撓新村工委會主席吳亞九指出,盡管萬撓州議員拿督鄧詩漢答應安排村民、國能與土地局開會,但他們仍不會放棄任何一線免除搬遷的希望。

他說,各造皆未取得雙贏方案,國能卻一再委派承包商進入村內展開工程,還好每次經過村民爭取,對方妥協停工離開,但難保他們哪天會強硬施工。

他表示,工委會將在本月29日與各造開會后,若仍無未能取得讓村民滿意的結果,他們將繼續採取法律行動保護家園,堅拒搬遷。

“村民絕對不會搬遷。”

他今日參與村民匯報會及和國能承包商接涉后,如是指出。

在今日匯報會上,各造也一再抨擊當地國州議員拿督斯里陳廣才和拿督鄧詩漢失信,沒有積極協助他們處理遭逼遷,讓路高壓電纜計劃的問題,才會造成今日局面,讓村民深感失望。

工委會前身“五人小組”主席林成昌指出,鄧詩漢早在10年前已得知這項計劃,而村民則在2005年正式收獲國能的搬遷通告信,可是過去2年來卻沒有積極為村民解決問題。

他說,他們上月23日與能源、水務與通訊部長拿督斯里林敬益開會時,國能表示只待州政府處理土地問題,繞道計劃絕對可行,要求國州議員在一個月內提呈繞道計劃書。

“最近,國能單方面宣佈繞道計劃不可行,理由非常牽強,包括需時一年時間重新策劃及技術不允許等,各造出爾反爾的態度很沒城意。”

他重申,村民不反對發展,只希望不必搬遷,也無需受高高壓電磁波影響。

申請司法審查
★爭取繞道、反對逼遷、萬撓新村工委會代表律師梁自堅

雖然雪州行政會議已批准新村建高壓電纜,但村民還是有權入稟法庭,要求暫緩計劃,以便有充裕時間,尋找替代方案及繼續談判。

村民除了向高庭申請停工令,也可以申請司法審查。

現在只有國能單方面宣佈,州政府已批准工程,以及繞道方案不可行;可是州政府一直沒有作出回應,這對村民很不公平,因此我建議村民申請司法審查,讓法官判定誰是誰非。

村民注重的不是賠償,而是希望擁有安全及健康的生活環境。

國能出爾反爾
★雪州中委劉天球

國能出爾反爾,之前說繞道沒有問題,現在反口說技術問題行不通。

我覺得,如果申請停工令,國能還是有方法向法庭申請撤銷,所以最佳方法是申請司法審查,至少能拖延一段時間,進一步與各造談判。

將辦簽名運動
★隆雪華堂青年團團長陳松林

我們將協助村民,尋找以前的地方大藍圖,證明是先開闢新村后,才設下高壓電纜保留地。

同時,隆雪華堂將在本月27日召開會員大會,屆時我們將進行簽名運動,以示支持萬撓新村村民爭取繞道、反對逼遷

200村民力阻高压电动工
僵持两句钟国能无功而返

国能公司按照原定动土计划

,今日派出两辆铲泥机到万挠新村进行高压电工程

,但是在大約200名新村村民的齐力阻止下

,成功迫使当局暂停施工。

双方在现场僵持不下,气氛相当紧张,所幸没有酿成肢体上的冲突。经过大约2个小时的互不让步,最终由国能公司做出妥协,承诺在下一轮会谈之前不会贸然施工,令所有村民欢呼胜利。

交通部长兼士拉央国会议员陈广才和万挠州议员邓诗汉,曾在上个月杪与能讯部长林敬益、能讯部高级官员、国能高级管理层和“万挠新村反电缆5人小组”举行会议,同意在一个月内解决村民的问题,另觅绕道路线建高压电缆。

不过,国能却在上周表示,经过国能向雪州政府解释之后,州政府并不接纳绕道的建议,而允许国能按照原定计划进行电缆工程。而国能也铁定在今天於万饶新村展开兴建高压电缆的工程。

国能动土消息传出后,万挠“反对高压电5人小组”几天后召集村民商讨对策,并成立了21人的“争取绕道,反对逼迁” 万挠新村工委会,由5人小组成员吴亚九担任主席、林成昌担任副主席、王仲辉担任秘书和温伟明担任财政。该工委会也召开了今早的村民大会。

共有大约200名村民出席今早11时开始的村民会议,其中民主行动党非政府组织主任刘天球、雪州财政巴都玛莱、公正党总财政梁自坚、雪州署理主席李成金、隆雪华堂青年团团长陈松林,以及属下的“关注万挠新村高电压逼迁”小组协调员李英伟也到场给予支持。

由于接获消息,在结束村民会议和记者会后,与会的村民立即赶往到新村边境一起阻止高压电工程的进行。

村民抵达工程现场后,发现铲泥机已经挖了一个约十尺深的洞,更有村民立即上前呼喝在内的司机下车。

要求出示州政府批准公函不果

在群众的一片谩骂声下,国能公司聘请的私人承包商被迫停下铲泥机。此举引起国能公司职员的不满,并以州政府已批准有关工程为由,指示司机继续动工。

这时,有村民出示一封近期由国能公司发出、承诺会在7月6日后才动工的公函。刘天球也也要求国能公司方面出示州政府批准工程进行的文件,否则在政府未作出宣布之前,村民将继续阻止国能公司动工。

但是,在场的国能公司雪州区域经理沙尼阿末却拒绝出示有关文件。沙尼阿末表示,村民如果要求有关文件,必须书写正式函件向国能申请;而且,他也反驳说,国能目前只是在政府保留地动工,并没有违背7月6日前不到新村动工的承诺。

国能公司中马区输电工程高级经理阿兹敏甚至表示,陈广才和邓诗汉已经通知国能说,有关替代路线已经没办法采用了。

国能公司代表的强硬态度引起村民的情绪益发高涨,并将国能公司的代表团团围起,人群中也不断传出村民高亢的抱怨和谩骂声,造成双方的谈判一度陷入僵局,无法继续。

约半小时后,阿兹米做出妥协,答应村民出示州政府批准工程进行的文件,不过文件需要1个小时才能够送到。虽然在中午艳阳高照下,村民依然毫无离开之意,纷纷坚守在现场等待结果。

邓诗汉允本周五召开多边会议

阿兹米在一个小时后再次出现时,但是他没有出示州政府批准工程进行的文件,而是带了邓诗汉的口讯,指后者表示将于本月29日早上在士拉央土地局召开多边会议,包括陈广才、新村村民和国能,针对这悬而未决的课题进行另一番讨论。

此外,在村民的要求下,阿兹米也允许铲泥机司机将已经挖好的洞填补回去。他也承诺,在下一轮会议之前,国能不会再擅自动工。

此项宣布马上换来现场村民的欢迎,并在一片胜利的气氛中看着洞逐渐被填平。

刘天球之后向《当今大马》记者表示,经过今天的事件后,身为万挠居民代议士的陈广才和邓诗汉一定要站出来向村民交待,而不是一直躲在国能后面。

Rawang HTZ: Chan Kong Choy, what happened?

June 24, 2007
Transport Minister Chan Kong Choy, who’s also the MP for Selayang, has been keeping mum until today over the unilateral declaration made by TNB, that the TNB will proceed with the high tension transmission project in Rawang now that the Selangor State Goverment has given them the greenlight not to take an alternative route as agreed by Lim Keng Yaik, Chan Kong Choy and Rawang state assemblyman Tang See Hang last month at Putrajaya.I will be attending a protest cum press conference in Rawang new village on Sunday 24 June 2007 morning (10.30am at the market place) together with M Batumalai (DAP Rawang Rep), Tian Chua and representative from the KL Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall.

萬撓高壓電纜計劃照跑
不接受繞道•26日原地動工

(八打靈再也訊)紛擾已久的萬撓新村高壓電纜計劃照跑,而國能已訂於6月26日在原地動工!

雪州政府已在5月29日的會議上議決該高壓電纜計劃在原地進行,換言之,居民爭取繞道進行這項計劃的希望已破滅!
在這項計劃下,受影響的51戶居民必須搬遷,而涉及賠償的總額達430萬令吉。

受影響的居民必須在7月11日、12日及13日到鵝嘜縣土地局辦理索償事務。

據瞭解,居民提出4項繞道建議,以避開在人口稠密的萬撓新村。不過,在繞道建議中,卻要動用康情森林保留地或共和聯邦森林保留地。雪州政府以不想影響有關保留地而作出有關決定。

國能收到批准信

國能高級副主席(營運及技術)拿督莫哈末西迪阿末在匯報會上說,雪州政府作出上述定奪後,他們(國能)將在本週日開始動工。

他說,在這項計劃下,高壓電纜將從原本的33千瓦增至275千瓦。

他表示,這項計劃從2005年拖延至今,經無數次開會討論及研究繞道建議,最終還是議決在原地展開提昇電力工程。

他說,國能是在不久前收到雪州政府的批准信件,以繼續進行提昇電力工程。

3項技術因素無法克服

他說 ,於5月29日的一項會議上,雪州政府基於國能提出3項無法克服的技術的因素,而同意國能不接受繞道建議

“這3項技術因素包括了如果只將電壓提昇至132千瓦特,可能造成巴生河流域電供有時會出現供應不足問題。”

“其二是國能需至少再花一年時間重新設計、安排和測示所有工作,影響提昇電力計劃。”

“其三,新建議會牽涉新地區和新計劃,影響工程進度。”

他說,國能會於7月在鵝嘜土地局安排一項對話會,聽取居民賠償要求,並希望居民對於工程的進行給以配合。 (星洲日報/大都會•2007.06.19)

Rawang High Tension Zone: Was there a tussle between Gerakan and MCA?

June 20, 2007
Last month, Chan Kong Choy promised to find an alternative route for the high-tension tranmission towers within a month. This was witnessed by the Rawang 5-men committee, TNB, Tang See Hang and Lim Keng Yaik at Lim’s office in Putrajaya.Why then TNB held a press conference yesterday to unilaterally declared that it would proceed with works without the need to look for an alternative route?

Chan Kong Choy and Tang See Hang must now explain to the Rawang people instead of shying away from his responsibility. Or was there a political tussle between the former Gerakan chief and the MCA leaders over this issue?

I would be going down to Rawang together with our Rawang representative M.Batumalai on Saturday to meet the affected villagers to seek a solution.

Meanwhile, I have advised the residents to get ready with the lawsuit based on public interest in my capacity as their advisor.

广才承诺解决·国能宣布动工
万挠村民要以庭令阻高压电缆

【本刊庄迪澎撰述】虽然马华公会署理总会长陈广才一个月前承诺用一个月时间解决雪兰莪州万挠新村高压电缆的问题,不过国家能源公司昨天宣布,高压电缆不会绕道而行,而且将在下周日(6月24日)动工。“反对高压电五人小组”成员吴亚九说,村民将采取法律行动捍卫家园。尽管陈广才(左图)的承诺言犹在耳,但是国能(营运与技术)高级副主席莫哈末西迪昨晚召开紧急汇报会,对媒体说,雪兰莪州行政议会决定在万挠新村兴建高压电缆已成定局,受影响的51座建筑物(其中35个持有地契),包括民众会堂、篮球场及住家,必须搬离原址。【点击《中国报》:51建筑物须让路 建高压电缆势在必行】吴亚九今早对《独立新闻在线》说,村民考虑采取法律行动,以业主的身份入禀法院,申请庭令阻止国能动工;不过,具体将怎么做、何时入禀法院,有待今晚与村民们对话后敲定。他说,“反对高压电五人小组”预料将在下周日上午召开新闻发布会报告详情。今年5月23日下午,马华公会署理总会长、雪兰莪州士拉央区陈广才及万挠区州议员邓诗汉与万挠新村的“反对高压电五人小组”协商后指出,后者同意给他们一个月时间解决高压电问题,而解决方案是把高压电路线转移到连接瓜雪亚三爪哇(Asam Jaya)和万挠邓普勒花园(Templer Park)的拉达高速公路(LATAR Highway)右边,绕过万挠新村。【点击:陈广才一个月内寻解决方案 万挠高压电事件或绕道解决】万挠是在士拉央国会选区范围内,陈广才也是交通部长;邓诗汉不但是万挠区州议员,也是雪兰莪州政府行政议员,掌管投资、工业与贸易事务。约见陈广才不果

吴亚九说,自两个星期前开始,“反对高压电五人小组”已尝试约见陈广才,但迄今仍不得要领;他们不但通过万挠新村村长唐可铧接洽陈广才,也曾到交通部求见陈广才,但都无功而返。

《独立新闻在线》今早也数度联络陈广才,但他的电话无法接通;他的新闻秘书姚伟豪则没有接听电话。因此,至截稿时,仍未能获得陈广才的回应。

万挠新村居民两年前接获通知,国能计划在新村附近兴建高压电缆,并要求该村51户人家搬迁。村民拒绝国能的赔偿建议,坚决捍卫家园。后来村民成立了五人小组,展开反对高压电缆运动。五人小组向国能建议绕道兴建高压电缆,可是邓诗汉却透露,国能以“技术问题”为由拒绝。【点击:高压电事件酿燃眉之忧 万挠村民呼唤议员良知】

今年5月17日,国能委托的承包商到万挠新村动工兴建高压电缆,遭居民抗议和阻止;双方协商了三至四个小时,稍后万挠警局副主任苏巴马尼安(Subramaniam)接获“上头”指示后,国能技术人员、工程承包商、警察才陆续离开动工地点。【点击:万挠人阻国能建高压电缆 邓诗汉讲要来却不见人影】

国能单方退出万挠高电谈判
隆雪华堂促林敬益等人斡旋

【本刊记者撰述】吉隆坡暨雪兰莪中华大会堂对国家能源公司(国能)单方面宣布拒斥谈判,执意在下周日(6月24日)动工兴建雪州万挠新村高压电缆,感到遗憾,并促请能源、水务及通讯部长林敬益、士拉央区国会议员陈广才及万挠区州议员邓诗汉代表政府居中斡旋解决此事。隆雪华堂会长黄汉良今天发表文告说,万挠居民过去两年来不懈争取高压电缆绕道,研拟了各种可行的替代方案,并获得林敬益、陈广才及邓诗汉的赞同;如今国能执意采取单方面行动,等于无视协商成果,罔顾万挠新村居民的健康与安全。国能(营运与技术)高级副主席莫哈末西迪昨晚召开紧急汇报会,对媒体说,雪兰莪州行政议会决定在万挠新村兴建高压电缆已成定局,受影响的51座建筑物(其中35个持有地契),包括民众会堂、篮球场及住家,必须搬离原址。【点击《中国报》:51建筑物须让路 建高压电缆势在必行】黄汉良说,隆雪华堂对国能昨天的宣布深感惊讶,因为万挠新村“反对高压电五人小组”今年五月和林敬益、陈广才、邓诗汉、国能高层在布城协商沟通,陈广才、邓诗汉还表明愿意在一个月内斡旋处理绕道建议,并称各造将朝“尽量避免高压电影响人民”的方向商讨解决方案。【点击:陈广才一个月内寻解决方案 万挠高压电事件或绕道解决】“林敬益也答应协助解决国能的技术问题,民意代表们的反应均是积极肯定的,由始至终都没有反对绕道建议,国能岂能无视民代的善意努力。”支持村民诉诸法律行动

隆雪华堂因此呼吁林敬益代表中央政府与国能交涉,希望表明在尊重人民健康的前提下,促请国能回到替代方案商议的谈判座。该会也呼吁陈广才及邓诗汉信守承诺,把该议题带上内阁及州政府讨论,继续为民请命。

“隆雪华堂过去一直坚定支持万挠新村‘反对高压电五人小组‘的努力,现在更强烈支持村民向法庭申请庭令,禁止国能动工,以捍卫他们的家园及福祉。隆雪华堂认为,各造还在积极寻求解决方案,国能不应强硬展开兴建工程。”

隆雪华堂也呼吁各界积极参与支持万挠新村居民捍卫社区权益,该会深信万挠新村高压电缆工程攸关人民福祉,当政者应该聆听民意,营造双赢策略,不应以赤裸利益压倒人民健康与安全需求。

今天较早前,万挠新村“反对高压电五人小组”成员吴亚九告诉《独立新闻在线》,村民考虑采取法律行动,以业主的身份入禀法院,申请庭令阻止国能动工;不过,具体将怎么做、何时入禀法院,有待今晚与村民们对话后敲定。【点击:广才承诺解决•国能宣布动工 万挠村民要以庭令阻高压电缆】
