SPRM DIJEMPUT MENEMPATKAN KAKITANGAN DI PEJABAT KSSB
SHAH ALAM: Kerajaan Selangor menjemput Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) untuk menempatkan pegawai di pejabat Kumpulan Semesta Sdn Bhd (KSSB).
Tawaran ini dibuat selaras dengan komitmen Kerajaan Negeri terhadap konsep pentadbiran yang telus serta bertujuan meningkatkan keyakinan orang ramai terhadap operasi KSSB berikutan kritikan dan dakwaan yang dilemparkan terhadap syarikat milik penuh Kerajaan Selangor ini.
Kakitangan SPRM ini boleh memantau operasi dan pentadbiran KSSB secara lebih dekat bagi memastikan salah guna kuasa atau rasuah tidak berlaku.
Bagi melengkapkan lagi prinsip pentadbiran telus dan terbuka, KSSB akan mengiklankan jawatan kosong di media bagi mengisi dua jawatan Pengarah yang bebas dari pengaruh politik tetapi berpengalaman dalam industri perlombongan pasir.
Mereka ini akan menjadi wakil Kerajaan Negeri untuk bersama-sama mentadbir dan menguruskan KSSB dalam menjalankan perlombongan pasir.
Kerajaan Negeri juga telah mengarahkan KSSB melantik juruaudit bebas bagi mengaudit setiap sen yang dibelanjakan supaya makumat kewangan KSSB dapat diketahui orang awam.
Kerajaan Selangor percaya masih belum ada syarikat yang menguruskan pasir di negeri-negeri lain yang telah mengambil langkah-langkah seperti yang dilakukan KSSB. Selangor yakin KSSB menjadi syarikat pasir pertama yang mengamalkan pentadbiran yang telus dan terbuka.
Kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat di Selangor mencabar negeri-negeri di bawah BN supaya mengambil langkah yang sama terutama di Johor yang mana operasi perlombongan pasir amat diragui tetapi tidak diberi liputan oleh media arus perdana.
Selain itu, Kerajaan Negeri juga ingin mengumumkan perlantikan Wan Ab. Halim Wan Ismail, sebagai Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif KSSB berkuatkuasa 26 Julai lalu.
Wan Ab. Halim, 62, berkelulusan bidang Kejuruteraan Perlombongan dari London University, United Kingdom mempunyai pengalaman luas bidang perlombongan sumber galian termasuk pasir, batuan, timah, besi dan emas.

Recently, my office organised a dialogue session with the industrial lot owners of Sungai Penaga Industrial Park to discuss on the conversion of land issue affecting them. Exco YB Ean Yong Hian Wah accepted the invitation to come and meet those affected in USJ 1. MPSJ councillor for USJ 1, Roslan Shahir and ex-MPSJ councillor Ken Chia were also present.Below is the article featured in The Star:
ALL industrial lot owners at the Sungai Penaga Industrial Park have been urged to pay up their land conversion premium before the Aug 24 deadline so that the industrial area can be legalised.
"Paying the premium to convert the land status from agricultural to industrial is the first step towards legalising the industrial park in USJ1, Subang Jaya," said Selangor New Village Development and Illegal Factory Task Force Committee chairman Ean Yong Hian Wah.
Ean Yong and Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh were speaking after a meeting a group of industrial lot owners pertaining to the conversion.
Sungai Penaga Industrial Park Owners and Tenants Association chairman Phoo Sai Hoong said 408 owners were involved in the issue.
"There are 17 master titles for this industrial park and each master title covers 24 lots, hence the 408 owners," he said.
"Almost all the owners have paid up, except for 15 who have not been cooperative and five who could not be contacted."
Yeoh said the association's committee members had sought her assistance to appeal to the state government for more time to pay the premium and for the 50% discount offer to be extended.
"The matter was referred to Ean Yong's office. The state government subsequently approved the extension appeal and discount offer.
"The landowners have an additional three months from May 25 to settle the payment," she said.
According to Phoo, the landowners had been given about a year to settle the premium in 2006, but the association has been having difficulty contacting and working with several owners.
"The premium for each master title costs RM1.1mil before the 50% discount offer.
"Landowners will have to pay about RM25,000 per lot after the discount," he said.
"The entire industrial park measures 21.85ha while each subplot is about 4,000 sq ft."
After the procedures are completed and once the industrial park is legalised, Ean Yong said it would be easier for the landowners and tenants to have their licences and relevant documents approved, their products and services recognised.
"The Selangor government has recorded an increase of RM29mil in land conversion premium within a year," he said.
"Some RM64mil was collected between 2008 and May 2009, while RM93mil was collected between May last year and May this year."
Phoo urged the remaining landowners to settle the premium before Aug 24 and to cooperate to prevent the matter from dragging on.
The landowners can contact association vice-chairman KG Tan Kee Soo at 012-331 0342 / 03-5635 5022.

Below is the article from KomunitiKini:
The State Planning Committee (SPC) has finally admitted to going along with the decision of MPSJ to withdraw the revocation of TM's commercial plans for USJ 6 utility land.
The SPC officer gave the information at the case's first mention with the Selangor Appeal Board after being pressured by the residents' lawyer Gobind Singh Deo on the status of endorsement.
According to Hannah Yeoh, SPC was passing the buck to the appeal board, claiming it would be up to the board to decide the faith of the 0.35ha TM utility land.
"At last they revealed that the development order stays, which means they have endorsed the MPSJ's contentious minutes (at the meeting) on April 27 to cancel the revocation," the Subang Jaya assemblyperson said.
The Selangor Appeal Board scheduled the next hearing on 20 and 21 October, the decision would then lay precedence for all cases involving TM utility land in the country.
The sentiment was equally shared by the community as Serdang parliamentarian Teo Nie Ching, Friends of Kota Damansara (FoKD) co-chairman Jeffrey Phang, Subang Jaya RA chairman AC Gill, Bandar Utama 11 RA chairperson B.L Tan and Sunway RA were all present with the residents at the hearing.
Yeoh said if the ruling is in favour of TM, the next land affected will be the utility lot alienated at Serdang Raya.
"A developer has submitted plans to commercialise the 5.34 acre land, but MPSJ put it on hold to see the decision of the USJ 6 appeal;."
Yeoh also said she is disappointed with the way SPC and MPSJ had conducted the matter.
"The revocation was done in October 2009 in MPSJ, but SPC has never endorsed it.
"It wasn't until six months later that MPSJ hurriedly organised another meeting to cancel the revocation, which SPC responsively endorsed."
Gobind meanwhile requested the documents to be furnished to him before he decides the next course of action.
"I asked for the MPSJ and SPC meeting minutes to get a picture of how they have tabled the decision," he said.
TM Facilities and developer Bujang Budiman proposed to jointly develop the utility reserve at USJ 6 into a nine-storey commercial block, which the residents have been protesting due to the traffic impact it would bring.
In addition, it raises the question of whether utility land, which was earmarked and sold cheaply to utility companies, could be legally converted after the land price hikes.
