Surat Terbuka Daripada Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang Lim Guan Eng Kepada Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Kira-kira Wang Negara Parlimen Malaysia(PAC) Datuk Seri Azmi Khalid

Posted: 22 Jan 2011 09:41 PM PST

21 Januari 2011
YB Datuk Seri Azmi Khalid,
Pengerusi,
Jawatankuasa Kira-kira Wang Negara (PAC),
Parlimen Malaysia,
Kuala Lumpur.

Yang Berhormat Datuk Seri,

Meminta Segerakan Audit Khas Oleh Ketua Audit Negara Ke atas Skandal Kehilangan RM30 Juta Tropical Island Resort(TIR) Pulau Jerejak Demi Kepentingan Rakyat Pulau Pinang.

Dengan segala hormatnya kami ingin merujuk kepada pengumuman YB selaku Pengerusi PAC mengenai perkara di atas baru-baru ini.

Kami amat berterima kasih atas arahan YB kepada Ketua Audit Negara untuk menjalankan audit khas ke atas kehilangan RM 30 juta yang dialami oleh kerajaan negeri Pulau Pinang dalam skandal penyerahan tanah dan operasi Tropical Island Resort(TIR) Pulau Jerejak sebelum 2008. YB telah menyatakan tidak ada had tempoh masa ditetapkan kepada Ketua Audit Negara untuk menyiapkan audit khas tersebut.

Demi kepentingan rakyat Pulau Pinang kami ingin meminta YB mengarahkan audit khas disegerakan dalam masa terdekat dan rumusan mutakhir dibuat agar menangani kehilangan RM 30 juta ini. Jumlah RM30 juta ini amat penting bagi rakyat negeri sebanyak 1.6 juta orang yang dapat menikmati banyak program sosial daripadanya. Lagipun demi masa depan TIR Pulau Jerejak, hala tuju muktamad amat diperlukan.

Isu TIR Pulau Jerejak dicetuskan oleh YB Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Senator Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon yang menuduh kerajaan baru kami tidak menguruskannya dengan baik. Ini ekoran bot yang ingin dinaiki oleh YB Tan Sri Koh ke Pulau Jerejak lambat dan terdapat ada ular dalam bilik stor dalam TIR.

Sebenarnya YB Tan Sri Koh telah menyerahkan TIR dimiliki 51% oleh Urban Development Authority(UDA) dan 49% oleh syarikat milikan kerajaan negeri, Penang Development Corporation(PDC), sejak 1992. Beliau juga membenarkan hampir semua tanah yang boleh digunakan di Pulau Jerejak diserahkan kepada UDA sejak 2001.

Pengurusan operasi TIR tidak berjalan dengan baik dan rugi setiap tahun. PDC tidak pernah terima sebarang dividen daripada TIR. Sehingga sekarang TIR mengalami kerugian terkumpul RM18 juta. Ini bermakna pelaburan PDC sebanyak 49% dalam TIR sebanyak RM15.435 juta dan pinjaman kepada TIR RM3.6 juta tidak boleh didapat balik.

Berdasarkan kepada akaun audit TIR, prestasi kewangan syarikat bagi lapan (5)
tahun kebelakangan ini dari 2005 sehingga 2009 adalah seperti berikut :-

Selain daripada kerugian RM 19 juta yang ditanggung oleh PDC, kerajaan negeri pun rugi bila RM10.6 juta kerana kegagalan membayar premium tanah oleh TIR kepada Pejabat Pentadbir Tanah Pulau Pinang untuk 80 ekar tanah di Pulau Jerejak yang diberikan. Sila lihat lampiran yang disertakan bersama.

Amatlah diharapkan tindakan yang sewajarnya harus dikenakan ke atas pihak yang bertanggungjawab atas skandal ini dan membolehkan kerajaan negeri mendapat wang balik daripada golongan yang berhutang. Itulah sebabnya audit khas ini harus disegerakan. Sekian terima kasih.

Yang benar,

LIM GUAN ENG
KETUA MENTERI PULAU PINANG

LAMPIRAN:
RUMUSAN TENTANG KEHILANGAN RM 30 JUTA OLEH KERAJAAN NEGERI DALAM TROPICAL ISLAND RESORT SDN BHD (TIR)

Jumlah keseluruhan besar kerugian yang dihadapi oleh PDC dan Kerajaan Negeri (menerusi PTG) berkaitan dengan skandal kelulusan tanah Pulau Jerejak kepada TIR adalah sebanyak RM30 juta. Butiran adalah seperti berikut:

1. Isu Tanah RM10.6 Juta Untuk 80 Ekar Tanah di Pulau Jerejak
Kelulusan oleh Kerajaan Negeri pada 15 Januari 2001 dengan tempoh pajakan selama 60 tahun sehingga 10 Oktober 2062. Pada 3/1/2001, Exco telah membuat keputusan bahawa TIR diberikan geran hak milik sebaik sahaja ansuran pertama sungguhpun tidak dijelaskan dengan sepenuhnya. Ini berlawanan dengan amalan biasa di bawah seksyen 180 Kanun Tanah Negara bahawa Pentadbir Tanah hanya boleh keluarkan geran apabila bayaran premium dijelaskan dengan sepenuhnya

Jumlah premium tanah ialah RM12.95 juta (iaitu RM3.72 skp) bagi tanah berkeluasan 80 ekar. Kadar faedah yang dikenakan ialah 4% setahun dan tempoh pembayaran balik ialah dari tahun 2004 sehingga 2013 (selama 10 tahun). Baki yang masih belum dijelaskan adalah sebanyak RM10.60 juta (termasuk faedah sebanyak RM1.81 juta). TIR tidak mampu membayar ansuran mengikut jadual yang ditetapkan oleh Kerajaan Negeri disebabkan oleh prestasi kewangan syarikat yang tidak baik.

Sebagai rumusan geran tanah tidak sepatutnya dikeluarkan sehingga premium tanah dibayar penuh supaya tidak berlaku hutang bayaran premium. Keputusan Exco meluluskan geran tanah dikeluarkan tanpa bayaran penuh dikutip menyebabkan tunggakan hutang RM10.6 juta daripada TIR sejak tahun 2004. Kerajaan negeri telah kehilangan tanah sungguhpun premium tanah belum dibayar penuh.

2. Kehilangan Kos Pelaburan PDC RM 15.435 Juta
Modal berbayar TIR adalah sebanyak RM31.5 juta. Kos pelaburan PDC berdasarkan ekuiti 49% adalah sebanyak RM15.435 juta.

3. Kehilangan Pinjaman Pemegang Saham oleh PDC RM3.6 Juta
Pada 28 Disember 2007, PDC telah memberi pinjaman pemegang saham sebanyak RM3.41 juta kepada TIR untuk menampung kos operasi syarikat. Keseluruhan jumlah tersebut sebanyak RM3.60 juta (termasuk faedah sebanyak RM193,553 atas kadar faedah 3.5% setahun) masih belum dijelaskan.

Royal Commission of Inquiry into RM888 billion illicit capital outflow scandal.

Posted: 22 Jan 2011 08:55 PM PST

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister And DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Penang On 23.1.2011

DAP wishes to extend our congratulations to the Royal Malaysian Navy for its success in capturing 18 Somali pirates and preventing their attempted hijack of a Malaysian chemical tanker near the Gulf of Aden. This successful operation in saving the tanker and their crew without any loss of life inspires confidence in a professional navy that justifies the people's faith.

Not Just Petronas But BN Must Come Clean On The Scandal Of Huge Illicit Capital Outflows Of RM888 Billion From Malaysia In 9 Years From 2000-2008, The Fifth Highest In The World Amongst Developing Countries.

Whilst our navy boys are heroes for their successful capture of Somali pirates in international waters, DAP regrets that land "pirates" are allowed to roam freely in Malaysia. The US-based financial watchdog Global Financial integrity (GFI) reported that illicit money outflows from Malaysia tripled to US$68.2 billion (RM208.1 billion) in 2008, from US$22.2 billion in 2000.

For the period 2000-2008, China tops the chart among the world’s exporters of illicit capital with a whopping US$2.8 trillion of outflows, followed by Russia (US$427 billion), Mexico (US$416 billion), Saudi Arabia (US$302 billion) and Malaysia (US$291 billion or RM888 billion). Other Asian countries with high illegal capital flight are Philippines ($109 billion), Indonesia ($104 billion) and India ($104 billion).

Clearly illegal capital flight from Malaysia of RM888 billion over 9 years from 2000-8 has dwarfed legitimate capital inflows into the country. GFI defines illicit financial flows as generally involving the transfer of money earned through illegal activities such as corruption, transactions involving contraband goods, criminal activities, and efforts to shelter wealth from a country’s tax authorities.

GFI said that poor governance, pervasive corruption and rising income inequality as contributory factors, making serious allegations that even GLCs such as Petronas could probably be driving illicit flows. This is a devastating indictment of the lack of enforcement, rule of law and a culture of corruption that has eroded confidence in our capital market.

GFI also pointed out the significant discrimination in labour markets was another factor which moved not only people but also illicit and unrecorded capital out of the country. Sadly, Malaysia's loss of human talent has not only dimmed our future but also made all of us poorer.
Clearly, not only Petronas but BN must come clean on the scandal of huge illicit money outflows RM888 billion from Malaysia in 9 years from 2000-2008, the 5th highest in the world amongst developing countries.

GFI proposes increasing transparency as critical to reducing the outflow of illicit money from developing countries.This is in line with Penang state government's CAT governance of Competency, Accountability and Transparency, which has resulted in Penang being commended by the Auditor-General's Report as the best financially managed state and won praise from Transparency International.

The refusal of BN to come clean will not only cause greater losses in the future, there is a possibility that the country may even go bankrupt by 2019 as Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Idris Jala had warned. RM888 billion in only 9 years is a huge sum by any measure, and more than four times our 2011 National Budget. If RM888 billion was given to 27 million Malaysians, each man woman and child would receive nearly 33,000/- each over 9 years.

Any clean and responsible government with integrity would have immediately established a Royal Commission of Inquiry into this RM888 billion illicit capital outflow scandal. However BN's reluctance to establish a Royal Commission of Inquiry into other scandals such as RM52 billion bumi shares scandal, where Malays/bumis lost RM 52 billion of bumi shares which just "disappeared", leaves Malaysians with no choice but to change the government if we want to unearth the truth and punish the culprits responsible.

Only A Two-Party System That Upholds Freedom, Justice, Truth, Democracy And Public Integrity Can Ensure That Sarawak’s Rich Natural Resources Benefit Sarawakians.

Posted: 22 Jan 2011 08:49 PM PST

Only a two-party system that upholds freedom, justice, truth, democracy and public integrity can ensure that Sarawak's rich natural resources benefit Sarawakians. A two-party system requires a strong opposition which can not only deny BN's its customary two-thirds majority but also able to form the government.

The coming state general elections is a crucial crossroad for Sarawakians to choose between BN's politics of patronage, cronyism and corruption or PR people's government. PR people's government is centered on 3Es of enabling the people with skills and education, empowering them with rights or opportunities and enriching the people by ensuring an equal share of the fruits of economic success.

Why are so many Sarawakians still poor and Sarawak not the richest state in Malaysian when it is blessed with natural resources of timber, oil and gas and land?Unfortunately Sarawak is also full of "crocodiles of the two-legged kind". BN's politics of patronage, cronyism and corruption has robbed Sarawak of their birthright.

Timber has been over-logged until the rivers are contaminated into brown water. Sarawak only receives oil and gas of 5% of revenue. Land is forcibly taken away from natives leaving them homeless or dislocated. Town landowners worry about the renewal of lease premiums at a high price. The time has come to stop over-logging, increase oil and gas royalties to 20% and return land to the people and natives.

Only a two-party system or a change in government can guarantee the people's rights are respected. We propose an immediate stop to taking away native land and automatic renewal of lease premiums at nominal cost. In Penang, the state government wanted to give freehold title to low-cost houses free of charge but was stopped by BN. Renewal of lease premiums is set automatically to 99 years at only 10% of market value.

To redress the gross neglect, improve the economic welfare and uplift the educational standards of the Dayak community, we propose a RM1 billion Dayak Endowment Fund headed by Dayaks that are elected by the Dayak community.

We will provide a fixed sum every year for all schools including Chinese and mission schools to ensure that they are well-equipped and provided with electricity and water. We will also provide transport subsidies for all school-going children in urban and rural areas.

We will wipe out hard-core poverty. We will provide free wifi at all the major population areas in towns and rural settlements.

Sarawak is rich enough to afford all these if we stop corrupt practices. We will fight corruption by implementing an open tender system, separate business from politics and ban Chief Minister, EXCOs, MPs, ADUNs, Councillors from being granted state land or contracts. To restore prosperity to Sarawak we will implement good governance based on Competency, Accountability and Transparency. This is already done in Penang.

PR have shown our good governance. In Penang we have not only being praised by the Auditor-General Report for being the best financially managed state but also praised by Transparency International for establishing integrity in leadership. Penang is going green and leading in green practices such as "No Free Plastic Bag" campaigns and water treatment through 3R of Reduce, Reuse Recycle. Penang is also the Silicon Valley and the most livable city in Malaysia.

Most important of all Penang is now the new champion of investments in Malaysia, coming out top in 2010. Penang replaced the previous 2009 champion Sarawak with RM 12.2 billion in 2010. Penang was No. 4 in 2009 with RM 2.1 billion but shot up 5 times to No.1. On the other hand Sarawak went down from No.1 in 2009 with RM 8.5 billion to No. 4 with RM3.9 billion in 2010.

This is the first time in history that Penang is No.1 in the country. By putting in RM12.2 billion, this is an extraordinary vote of confidence by both foreign and local investors in the PR state government of Penang. The No.2 state is another PR state of Selangor with RM 10.6 billion.

In fact the 4 PR states of Penang, Selangor, Kedah and Kelantan combined comprise RM 25 billion investments or 53% of the total investments in Malaysia of RM47,177 million in 2010. These 4 PR states alone can beat the rest of BN Malaysia!

Jangan cakap PR lagi tidak pandai memerintah. Dalam tiga tahun sahaja, PR telah melebihi apa yang BN tak dapat buat dalam 51 tahun!

Hampir RM2 Juta Untuk Mengujudkan Setiap Pekerjaan Baru Menunjukkan Ketirisan(Leakages) Ekonomi Dalam Bentuk Amalan Rasuah Dan Penyelewengan Kewangan Yang Hanya Boleh Diatasi Dengan Kemenangan PR Dalam Pilihanraya Besar Akan Datang.

Kerajaan BN telah mengumumkan 19 lagi projek permulaan (EPP) di bawah Program Transformasi Ekonomi yang akan menjana pelaburan hampir RM67 bilion, RM36 bilion pendapatan kasar negara dan mewujudkan 35,000 pekerjaan baharu untuk menjadikan Malaysian sebagai negara berpendapatan tinggi. Dengan kata lain RM 67 bilion diperlukan untuk mewujudkan 35,000 pekerjaan baru ataupun hampir RM2 juta untuk setiap satu pekerjaan baru.

Adakah RM2 juta diperlukan untuk wujudkan satu pekerjaan baru? Ia memang satu rekod. Jumlah besar RM2 juta untuk setiap satu pekerjaan baru menunjukkan ketirisan ekonomi dalam bentuk amalan rasuah dan penyelewengan kewangan yang hanya boleh diatasi dengan kemenangan PR dalam pilihanraya besar akan datang. Jelas yang akan bengkerapkan Negara bukanlah Program 100 Hari PR tetapi amalan rasuah dalam BN.

Sebaliknya Program 100 Hari PR akan selamatkan negara dengan pulihkan ekonomi negara. Jangan lupa bahawa Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Dato Idris Jala sendiri yang telahpun menyatakan bahawa Malaysia mungkin bengkerap pada 2019.

BN mungkin lupa dengan projek mega ini tidak ada kena-mengena dengan masalah rakyat biasa yang berpendapatan rendah. Malaysia mengalami Gini coefficient ataupun ketidakadilan perbezaan pendapatan di antara yang kaya dan miskin yang paling tinggi di Asia Tenggara. Kumpulan termiskin golongan bawah 40% penduduk hanya memiliki 14.3% pendapatan negara sedangkan golongan atas 20% memiliki 50% pendapatan Negara. Dengan kata lain lebih 10 juta rakyat Malaysia dalam golongan bawah 40% penduduk menerima purata pendapatan RM1,500 sebulan.

Golongan ini yang akan dibantu oleh Program 100 Hari PR yang di antara lain manambahkan insentif kepada anggota kerajaan tertentu, bantu peneroka FELDA, wang penghargaan warga emas RM1,000 setiap tahun, wifi percuma untuk semua pekan di seluruh Malaysia, menghapuskan tol lebuhraya dan juga mengurangkan harga minyak untuk orang miskin.

PR bukan cakap sesuka hati kerana telahpun dilaksanakan di negeri di bawah pemerintahan PR. Sungguhpun banyak program telah dijalankan oleh kerajaan negeri yang di bawah PR, tidak ada satu negeri pun yang bengkerap. Sebaliknya ia lebih kukuh seperti Pulau Pinang yang telah dipuji dua tahun berturut-turut oleh Lapuran Ketua Audit Negara 2008 dan 2009. Malah Pulau Pinang dianggap sebagai mempunyai prestasi terbaik di negara pada 2009.

Dengan lebihan bajet paling besar dalam sejarah Pulau Pinang sebanyak RM 88 juta pada 2008 dan RM 77 juta pada 2009, pelbagai program dijalankan di antaranya:

· Membasmi miskin tegar dengan memastikan setiap keluarga mempunyai pendapatan sekurang-kurangnya RM500 sebulan

· Peruntukan pendidikan tahunan kepada sekolah agama rakyat, sekolah mubaligh, sekolah cina dan tamil sebanyak RM 11.3 juta pada 2010.

· Rebat air RM100 setiap keluarga sederhana rendah dan bawah sebanyak RM 17 juta pada 2008-9

· Program penghargaan warga emas sebanyak RM20 juta setahun dengan pembayaran RM100 setiap tahun kepada yang lebih 60 thaun dan wang pengurusan jenazah RM1,000 kepada waris. Program ini akan diperluaskan kepada OKU dan ibu tunggal tahun ini.

Semua program pro-rakyat tidak pernah dilaksanakan zaman BN memerintah selama 51 tahun tetapi dapat dibuat dalam 3 tahun PR memerintah. Wang penjimatan daripada urustadbir CAT dan program anti-rasuah yang dipuji oleh Transparency International membolehkan "dividen" anti-rasuah dalam bentuk program di atas dibayar dan dilaksanakan.

Ketirisan ekoran penyelewengan kewangan dan amalan rasuah setahun melibatkan sekurang-kurangnya RM 28 bilion setiap tahun dalam kerajaan Perseketuan. Banyak program 100 hari PR seperti membayar RM1,000 setiap tahun kepada warga emas melebihi 60 tahun boleh dilaksanakan. Dengan 2.1 juta warga emas, pembayaran RM1,000 setahun hanya melibatkan RM2.1 bilion setahun yang tak sampai 10% RM 28 bilion. Ada baki lagi.

Tetapi semua program rakyat ini hanya boleh berlaku jika Sarawak hentikan daripada menjadi "fixed deposit" BN dan sokong PR.

Let Us Restore The Dignity Of Sarawakians By Embracing The Future For A Sarawak That Is Cleaner, Greener And Fairer For All.

Even in this modern world, good values and principles still matter. Despite our differences and diversity, we can seek common ground and unity in that we are all Malaysians with equal political rights and economic opportunities.

Malaysians can make our common aspirations of freedom, justice, democracy and truth come true if we remember that is not who we are that is important, but what we are; not the colour of our skin that is important but the content of our character; and not our past ancestry that is important but how we connect with the present and with each other to face the future.

All Malaysians must reject the negative campaign that foments violence and breeds hate amongst us to hide their corruption and accumulation of extraordinary wealth.

We can only be better together. We can never be better by making others worse than us. Never forget when we oppress others down, we also go down to the same level as those being pushed down. We can never be superior by labeling others as an inferior race or worse.

The time has come for Malaysians to choose carefully. Do we want to be inclusive or exclusive, diversity to be our source of strength or for us to split, divided and discriminated? I believe that the silent majority amongst Malaysians will make a choice for a shared society that celebrates peace, inclusiveness, diversity, excellence and is non-discriminatory.

We are all fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters. Let us restore the dignity of Sarawakians embrace the future for a Sarawak that is cleaner, greener and fairer to all.

Pakatan Rakyat,

Kerajaan Berjiwa Rakyat,

Martabatkan Rakyat!
