‘Where are the ‘champions’ of 1Malaysia?’

The DAP believes that Idris Jala and Koh Tsu Koon should stand up for Utusan journalist Hata Wahari who was defending Najib’s vision for the nation.

PETALING JAYA: DAP strongman leader Lim Kit Siang wants the ministers responsible for implementing the 1Malaysia concept to defend National Union of Journalists (NUJ) president, Hata Wahari (photo), from being penalised by Utusan Malaysia.

"The government spent millions of ringgit on promoting the1Malaysia concept. The ministers directly responsible for implementing it, Koh Tsu Koon and Idris Jala, should intervene and ensure that Hata would not become the first victim of the 1Malaysia slogan," Lim said in a statement.

Hata, who is also Utusan journalist, has been critical of both his employer and the repressive anti-media laws such as the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984 since his appointment to NUJ's top position in September.

He has accused senior Utusan editors of serving Umno's interests instead of advocating media freedom.

"Hata's only 'sin' was to take Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak's 1Malaysia concept seriously and for reminding mainstream newspapers that the drop in circulation proved that the people were fed up of being served with propaganda reports that promoted racism and religious intolerance," said Lim, who is also the Ipoh Timor MP.

"The NUJ head has called on all mainstream journalists, especially from Utusan Malaysia, to return to their true function as deliverers of objective information to the public, and not serve as propaganda tools for any political party or individual," he said

He added that it did not make sense that Hata, despite being an Utusan journalist, was being penalised for his statement made in his capacity as NUJ chief.

"And what makes the whole disciplinary proceeding against Hata so outrageous is that Utusan is the official newspaper of Umno.

"Is Najib facing a revolt in Umno, especially within the daily, against his 1Malaysia slogan – or is this another example of the hollowness and hypocrisy of his 1Malaysia concept?"asked Lim.

Clear signal

Klang MP Charles Santiago said the dismissive approach taken by Utusan was a clear signal that the top management of the newspaper did not care about press freedom in the country and was
anti-union.

"Utusan's arrogance reflects the sad state of Malaysia's fourth estate and the statistics speak for themselves. Malaysia  is ranked 131 in the 2009 Press Freedom Index by Reporters Without Borders," said Santiago.

He said that Utusan's refusal to publicly rebut Hata's statements showed that the daily itself did not tolerate any sort of criticisms.

"This is indeed appalling and clearly a travesty of freedom of expression in the country. Without a free press, Malaysians would not be able to effectively articulate their views or call for
political and social reforms," he said.

The Malay daily is to hold a closed-door domestic enquiry against Hata today for allegedly tarnishing its image

(雪蘭莪‧巴生15日訊)風景園水管爆裂引發水災導致居民蒙受財物損失一事,在居協與雪州水供公司和發展商協商近7個月後,終有了個三方都感滿意的結果,66戶災黎終在今日各獲得200至5萬令吉不等的賠償金。

有關賠償金是由雪州水供公司與發展商共同分擔,總共是18萬3千224令吉25分,而每戶受影響的家庭將胥視其所受到的破壞程度作出賠償。

舊風景園居民協會秘書阿茲斯說,水管爆裂引發水災在去年5月4日發生後,居協便協助受害的居民向有關當局索取應有的賠償。

家私和廚具都被浸壞

他說,在他們向101戶住家進行調查後,證實其中66戶在這場突來的"水災",面對各種財物損失,尤其是家私和廚具,都被浸壞。

他表示,雖然在協商賠償金的過程中並非太順利,數度出現膠著狀態,但在居協與居民的堅持下,終獲得一個合理的賠償。

他是於星期六的分發賠償金給災黎的一項儀式上,發表上述談話。出席者包括巴生區國會議員查爾斯、雪州水供公司代表莎莎、舊風景園居協主席西華拉祖等。

查爾斯感謝水供公司發展商

查爾斯在會上向雪州水供公司和發展商表示感謝,向受影響的居民作出合理的賠償。

他也特別提到居協在此事件中扮演著重要角色,令事件最終獲得圓滿解決。

他說,這顯示居協是居民與人民代議士之間的良好橋樑,在互相配合與合作下,協助居民解決各種民生問題,減輕雙方的工作。

他說,在他們向101戶住家進行人口普查後,證實其中66戶在這場突來的"水災",中各面對種種財物損失,尤其是家具和廚具,都被浸壞。

"雖然在協商賠償金的過程中並非太順利,數度出現膠著狀態,包括抗議行動和向警方報案等,但在居協與居民堅持下,終獲一個合理賠償。"
