Anwar akui ada kemelut di peringkat bawahan

15/11/2009 9:15pm
KOTA BHARU 15 Nov. — Ketua Umum Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim mengakui wujudnya perselisihan antara parti dalam pakatan pembangkang di peringkat bawahan berikutan tiada titik persetujuan yang dicapai ketika membincangkan perihal perbezaan prinsip parti masing-masing.


Beliau berkata, jika tiada titik persetujuan dicapai di peringkat bawahan dalam membincangkan isu tertentu, ada pihak daripada PKR yang tidak memberi sokongan padu kepada parti dalam pakatan pembangkang.


"Dalam pakatan tidak semua mesti setuju. Tetapi ada di peringkat cabang PKR jika berlaku perkara yang tidak dipersetujui mereka mula hendak marah dan macam hendak perang seluruh Malaysia.


"Saya ingatkan kepada peringkat bawahan bahawa kita mempunyai ruang kita sendiri untuk salurkan pandangan,” katanya semasa berucap merasmikan konvensyen PKR Kelantan di sini hari ini. - Bernama

LEADER'S SHOULD GO DOWN TO GROUND??









State party chairman Mustaffa Kamil Ayub said that this would give the party leadership ample time to screen through the background of all its candidates prior to the elections.

“It will also give them time to go down to the ground and serve the people through their branches and divisions.

“They will be able to gain better exposure and experience,” he told a press conference after the launch of the convention.
SO, WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE...... VACANT CHAIRS WITHOUT PEOPLE???

Pengetua Politeknik Permatang Pauh ditukar

Mohd Sabri Said






PERMATANG PAUH, 15 Nov: Pengarah Politeknik Seberang Perai, Norazahan Othman telah ditukar ke Jeli, Kelantan dipercayai akibat tindakan beliau membenarkan kerajaan negeri Pulau Pinang mengadakan Jamuan Hari Raya Aidil Fitri di situ pada 3 Oktober lalu.





Hari ini, pihak pengurusan Politeknik Seberang Perai yang terletak di Jalan Permatang Pauh didakwa telah mengadakan jamuan perpisahan terhadap beliau.Beliau dijangka akan berpindah ke negeri asal dalam masa terdekat.Pertukaran itu juga didakwa dilakukan dengan tergesa-gesa berkemungkinan atas desakan pihak yang tidak senang dengan sikapnya yang dilihat 'pro-pakatan'.








Pada 3 Ogos lalu, kerajaan negeri pimpinan Ketua Menteri, Lim Guan Eng telah mengadakan Majlis jamuan Aidil Fitri dan turut di hadiri oleh Tuan Yang Terutama, Tun Datuk Seri Utama, Dr Haji Abdul Rahman Abbas.Satu sumber mendakwa, sebuah parti politik pembangkang Pulau Pinang tidak dibenarkan menggunakan dewan Politeknik tersebut kerana tidak menjelaskan bayaran tunggakan sewaan program yang pernah dibuat.






Tindakan Norazahan yang membenarkan kerajaan negeri menggunakan dewan politeknik itu pula mungkin dilihat bahawa beliau pro pakatan. Kerana bertindak atas sikap profesionalnya, ada pihak didakwa telah tidak senang dan telah berusaha menukar beliau.

STUDY ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS STATUS IN MALAYSIA



BACKGROUND
The principle of universality of human rights is the cornerstone of international human rights law. This principle, as first emphasized in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights in 1948, has been reiterated in numerous international human rights conventions, declarations, and resolutions. The 1993 Vienna World Conference on Human Rights, for example, noted that it is the duty of States to promote and protect all human rights and fundamental freedoms, regardless of their political, economic and cultural systems.



All UN Member States have ratified at least one, and 80% of States have ratified four or more, of the core human rights treaties, reflecting consent of States which creates legal obligations for them and giving concrete expression to universality. Malaysia has signed the following two human rights treaties. They are on:
Gender Equality: The Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) - Ratified in 1995 with reservations.
Children's Rights: The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) - Ratified in 1995 with reservations.
Malaysia has not ratified the following:
Racial Equality: The International Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD), entry into force:1969
Civil and Political Rights: The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR)
Economic, Social and Cultural Rights: The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR)
Anti-Torture: The Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT)
Migrant Workers' Rights: The International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of all Migrant Workers and Members of their Families (MWC), which was adopted by the General Assembly in 1990 and will enter into force when at least 20 States have ratified it.
Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance
Malaysia has also not signed the Rome Statute (which came into force on 1 July 2002) establishing the International Criminal Court.

In April 2006, Malaysia’s Aide Memoire in support of its election to the Human Rights Council stated in part that “the increasing threat posed by terrorism worldwide has highlighted the importance of balancing security concerns with the preservation of individual liberties.” It went on to say that drawing on prior experience, “Malaysia believes it has achieved this balance.” The Aide Memoire also suggested that Malaysia’s “experience managing a plural society would bring an important dimension to the work of the new Human Rights Council.”

However, the 2009 Universal Periodic Review (UPR) found that laws and regulations such as the Internal Security Act (ISA) and Emergency Ordinance undermine fundamental rights and liberties such as freedom of assembly, expression, and the right to due process. While the national emergencies proclaimed in the 1960s and 1970s have long been resolved, the laws introduced then – the ISA and Emergency Ordinance -- remain. The 2009 Human Development Report stated that the People’s Volunteer Corps or Ikatan Relawan Rakyat (RELA), an untrained paramilitary force numbering over half a million, is given sweeping new powers to arrest and detain undocumented migrants and criminal suspects. As far as documented migrant workers are concerned, domestic workers lack protection under the law and face a range of abuses.

For Malaysia the real test of the UPR process will be whether it implements changes that have a real impact on the protection of human rights in the country. As a member of the Human Rights Council, Malaysia should follow through on its promises and take the lead in respecting, protecting and promoting human rights in the Southeast Asian region.
Some of the key recommendations included calls for repealing or amending the Internal Security Act (ISA) and guaranteeing freedom of expression, information and religion. Many countries also identified Malaysia’s poor record in addressing human rights abuses against refugees and migrant workers.

Malaysia’s engagement with the UPR process is welcomed, but it is noted that Malaysia had fallen short of many of its commitments to the UN Human Rights Council that was pledged when it applied to become a member in 2006. The government's objective is for Malaysia to become a fully developed country by 2020 as expressed in Vision 2020. It remains to be seen when and how Malaysia will acquire a first world political system, a multi-party democracy, a free press, an independent judiciary and the restoration of civil and political liberties that is befitting its status with its new economic maturity.


OBJECTIVES

The overall objective of the study is to carry out a comprehensive assessment on human rights situation in Malaysia in line with the requirements of the UN Charter for Human Rights and to make recommendations for the way forward. The study is to assess progress towards the effectiveness and enjoyment of a culture of respect for human rights in Malaysia, and to consider how the current human rights framework might best be developed and used to realize the vision of a society built on fairness and respect, confident in all aspects of its diversity. Specially, the study aims to assess the human rights situation in Malaysia including legal framework and capacity of both government and civil society in protecting and promoting the human rights of citizens; to identify human rights issues; and to make recommendations on strategies and actions that can be taken by different stakeholders in protecting and promoting human rights in Malaysia.

Police shot dead 5 Indians Sister & 4 children attempts suicide





According to her father R. Rampathy, Seetha (31) could not bear to digest the injustices caused by the Malay-sian UMNO police force who shot dead in cold blood five Indian youths in Klang on 8/11/2009 including her brother Surendran (24), and a 17 year old juvenile Loganathan.


According to her father R. Ramapathy mourning and grieving Seetha who had come for her brothers funeral from Gemenceh, Negeri Sembilan on 8/11/2009 was crying and looking at her brothers photograph. Knowing that she could not fight the bully and tyranny of UMNO and the Malaysian police force and that she would not get justice even from the Malaysian Courts, at about 8.30 a.m this morning she decided to take her own life and that of her four children Darshini(8), Usharani(7), Kugan(5) and Navina(3). Seetha, Usharani and Kugan are fighting for their lives in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Klang Tengku Ampuan Rahimah General Hospital.





Usharani and Navina who were at the normal word have at about 5.30 p.m today also been transferred to the ICU according to Rampathy.This is the height of the atrocities and tyranny by the Malay-sian UMNO and their police force against the poor working class and underprivileged Indians.

Please forward to all.
Thank you.

TRIBUTE UNTUK AMIRUL FAKIR DARI GROUP ANAK SENI

Tema utama ialah kemanusiaan,ketuhanan, alam,dan juga kehidupan di ketengahkan sesuai dengan hasrat membantu insan seni yang terlantar dalam kesakitan iaitu Saudara Amirul Fakir yang buta matanya.
(Dipetik sebahagian dari bloq pyan habib)Amirul sudah menderita sejak April tahun lalu, hanya kira-kira dua minggu setelah pelancaran kumpulan cerpen pertamanya yang bertajuk Mea Culpa. Beliau kini menjalani rawatan secara tradisional setelah dicadang sendiri oleh pakar perubatan moden. Misteri ini hanya milikNya. Bagi yang tidak mengenali Amirul, dia adalah seorang penyair dan penulis berbakat yang begitu intens corak karyanya. Sering menyokong acara-acara seni anjuran YKP dan selalu melepak dengan kawan-kawan yang datang dari latarbelakang seni yang berbeza – pelukis, pemuzik, pembikin filem..Jadi Amirul ini tidak hanya selesa bersidai dengan kelompok sastera semata-mata. Dan mungkin kerana itu juga, dalam masa hanya beberapa hari penganjuran projek ini, telah begitu banyak sokongan yang diterima dari handai taulan seniman. Semoga penjanaan Tabung Amirul Fakir (TAF) ini sedikit sebanyak dapat mengurangkan beban yang ditanggung Amirul.
Dan yang penting, inisiatif ini paling tidak dapat menyuntik semangat untuk beliau terus kuat menempuh dugaan ini. Sama-sama kita doakan supaya dia cepat kembali ke gelanggang kreatif, mampu bergiat aktif dan menulis lagi untuk seni dan budaya.Setinggi-tinggi penghargaan untuk semua yang terlibat dari segi persembahan, penajaan, sumbangan tenaga dan sokongan moral untuk program ini. Hanya Allah swt yang dapat membalasnya.Bagi anda yang ada kelapangan, jemputlah ke acara TAF. Sumbangan anda diperlukan.Nota tambahan: Pada semua pembaca muslimin yang berupaya pada dua malam Jumaat ini, mohon sedekahkan bacaan Yassin atau Al-Fatihah kepada Amiruddin Hussin aka Amirul Fakir supaya beliau segera sembuh dan semoga acara TAF Project berjalan lancar. TK.

Persembahan ini akan cuba di bawa ke Permatang Pauh dalam sedikit masa lagi jika tiada aral melintang bagi mengenegahkan bakat kesenian, dan juga freefilm yang akan membawa anda menonton filem-filem arahan ngo's yang akan mendedahkan tentang kerosakan,ketidakadilan dan juga kekejaman pihak pemerintah.
Usaha murni ini harus lah di teruskan ke semua negeri demi membantu insan seni dan membela nasib insan yang harus diberikan perhatian dan dalam masa yang sama dapt menghidupkan aktiviti seni dinkalangan generasi muda dan juga perkembangan seni tanahair.
