DEIG tidak langgar Akta SPRM 2009, kata SPRM

KUALA LUMPUR: Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia, (SPRM) mengesahkan setakat ini Darul Ehsan Investment Group (DEIG) tidak melanggar sebarang kesalahan di bawah Akta SPRM 2009.

Perkara itu disahkan oleh Pengarah SPRM Selangor Datuk Simi Abdul Ghani dalam satu kenyataan media hari ini.

“Setakat ini, SPRM tidak menemui sebarang kesalahan di bawah Akta SPRM 2009 dan tidak bercadang untuk mengambil tindakan selanjutnya.

“Bagaimanapun, sekiranya terdapat maklumat baharu yang mempunyai asas di bawah kesalahan, pihak SPRM bersedia mengambil tindakan sewajarnya mengikut peruntukan undang-undang,” kata Simi.

Beliau turut menafikan SPRM tidak mengambil sebarang tindakan terhadap kes berkenaan.

Malah katanya, SPRM telah mengambil tindakan proaktif sebaik sahaja isu penubuhan DEIG ini dilaporkan media pada 19 Ogos lalu dengan menemubual beberapa saksi serta mengambil dokumen berkaitan.

Berhubung isu zakat yang dikaitkan dengan DEIG, SPRM katanya, telah menjalankan siasatan sejak Julai lalu dan siasatan tersebut masih lagi dijalankan.

SPRM sebelum ini didesak pelbagai pihak supaya menjalankan siasatan bagi meneliti kemungkinan wujudnya amalan penyalahgunaan kuasa dalam pemindahan aset Perbadanan Menteri Besar (MBI) kepada Darul Ehsan Investment Group (DEIG) bernilai kira-kira RM30 bilion.
Bagaimanapun, Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali berkata kewujudan DEIG diketahui semua Adun Selangor sejak awal penubuhannya dan sebarang keraguan mengenai kewujudan entiti itu tidak sepatutnya ditimbulkan kerana maklumat mengenainya dibentangkan semasa persidangan Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) pada Ogos lepas.

Azmin juga dilaporkan berkata entiti yang ditubuhkan untuk mengurangkan impak dan risiko perniagaan secara terus terhadap kerajaan negeri itu masih belum memulakan operasi malah tidak terlibat dengan mana-mana transaksi sehinggalah pada awal 2016.

Nurul bela PAS: Bukan semua tukar dasar

Naib Presiden PKR Nurul Izzah Anwar terus mempertahan pendirian parti itu yang mahukan PAS turut serta dalam gabungan baru pembangkang.

Mengulas dakwaan DAP bahawa dasar parti Islam itu sudah bertukar, Nurul Izzah berkata masih ada pemimpin PAS yang konsisten dengan isu-isu rakyat.

Antara mereka, kata Nurul Izzah, Timbalan Presiden PAS Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man dan Naib Presiden Idris Ahmad.

“Sebagai timbalan presiden PAS, beliau bukan hanya mengkritik 1MDB, tetapi juga dakwaan rasuah Najib.

“Begitu juga dengan kehadiran Idris Ahmad dalam BERSIH,” katanya.

Setiausaha Agung DAP Lim Guan Eng sebelum ini menolak penyertaan PAS atas anggapan parti itu beralih dasar dengan tidak menggerakkan anggotanya ke himpunan BERSIH 4 bagi menyatakan bantahan dalam isu derma RM2.6 bilion ke akaun perdana menteri.

Perpecahan Pakatan Rakyat juga sebelum ini berpunca daripada perbezaan pendapat dan perbalahan berpanjangan kedua-dua parti itu, terutamanya dalam isu hudud.

Gabungan pembangkang baru ini akan turut disertai parti serpihan PAS, Parti Amanah Nasional (AMANAH) yang dipimpin oleh bekas-bekas pemimpin kanan PAS.

Don’t dictate on pact before it’s formed, Guan Eng urged

Source : Malaysiakini

PKR vice-president Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin has urged DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng not to dictate on the new opposition coalition before it is formally formed.

Reminding that the discussion is presently at an infancy stage, the Bukit Katil MP said the opposition parties should not be on a collision course.

“Even Parti Amanah Negara deputy chairperson Salahuddin Ayub has come out with a statement welcoming PAS. I think enough is enough and Lim should not dictate the yet-to-be coalition,” he said in a statement.

Shamsul (photo) added that Lim and Bukit Gelugor MP Ramkarpal Singh should be magnanimous.

He was commenting on Lim’s remark asking PKR deputy president Azmin Ali to explain why PAS should remain in the opposition pact, and Ramkarpal’s statement that PKR was wrong to continue working with PAS.

Shamsul said past coalitions failed due to three factors, namely it was a mere convenience electoral pact to face BN in elections, no middle party to form the fulcrum, and thirdly the existence of meddling in the affairs of other parties, namely criticising leaders openly.

In the efforts to strengthen and enlarge Pakatan Rakyat into what he calls a “Super Pakatan”, they must take strategic steps, he added.

“Firstly, it should not be an electoral pact or a coalition for political convenience. It must be a coalition based on principles to achieve the desired objectives together,” he said.

PKR must be seen as fulcrum

Explaining further, Shamsul added that Pakatan policy is based on PKR’s contribution and this he thinks need to be strengthened.

This is what PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail emphasised when inviting those who have the same ideals to unite.”

Secondly, he said, PKR must be seen as the fulcrum or the anchor party, and for this it had to be the strongest party which cannot be troubled, belittled, and threatened by others.

Shamsul said for this purpose PKR should increase its membership, leaders and talent bank, and on the same note welcomed Tumpat MP Kamaruddin Jaafar and former Selangor menteri besar Muhammad Mohd Taib into PKR.

He also called upon the opposition coalition to practice the Wesphalia principle adopted by Asean, a system of non-interference into the affairs of another country.

Similarly, Shamsul said political parties in the new opposition coalition should respect each other and such principle can help maintain order.

He said PKR de-facto leader Anwar Ibrahim, who is inclusive in his leadership qualities, makes him a true leader.

“Hence, it is not wise for Lim and Ramkarpal (photo) to continuously attack Azmin. The nation should matter first, not personal feelings,” he reasoned.

MEDIA STATEMENT : Opposition parties must cease finger pointing and rebuild cooperation

As Malaysian Ringgit fell into a 17-year low and all indicators show that the country’s economy is now in deep crisis, the people’s anxiety is all time high. Our political situation is further worsen by stubborn insistence of Prime Minister Najib holding on to power amid multiple exposure of scandals.

This is the time that the people are at a lost and looking towards the Opposition for political leadership. The public frustration over the ruling power increases by the day. By right, all opposition forces and civil society actors should unite and chart forward to overcome the the morally bankrupt BN government.

I find it quite disturbing that not only that we are unable to provide a compass for the way forward, political leaders are publicly attacking each others and further eroding the people’s confidence towards the opposition parties which they had voted for.

In this respect, I would like to urge all leaders from the opposition front to cease all forms of antagonistic exchanges immediately and to focus on the imminent crisis faced by the Malaysian people. In particularly, the opposition supporters are extremely concerned and uneasy with the divisions within PAS. It seems that separation of certain segments of PAS members and legislators is inevitable. While respecting PAS’ right to defend its party pride, it is also equally important for PAS leaders to be open-minded and magnanimous in dealing with their ex-comrades.I believe that forgiveness and benevolence are consistent to the Islamic values propagated by PAS.

Meanwhile as we welcome the birth of a new political force to be known as Parti Amanah Negara, we are mindful that we shall not fall into the enemy’s trap and allow the opposition to become more fragmented. In democracy, ideological diversity does not necessary undermine our political strength but instead it broadens our support base. From this perspective, the conciliatory gesture from Amanah leaders such as Salahuddin Ayub, Dr Dzul etc in their latest statements is timely and appropriate.

Further, we also appeal to DAP leaders to hold back any hostile posturing towards other opposition parties. We understand fully the ground of DAP’s skepticism towards PAS as a coalition partner. Criticisms by DAP leaders towards PAS were not totally unfounded. Nonetheless, KEADILAN also hope DAP could appreciate our efforts and strategy in dealing with the complexity of the opposition coalition.

In response to Penang CM and DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng, we would like to reiterate Selangor MB Azmin Ali did not utter his private viewpoint. Instead, the stance articulated by Azmin Ali is exactly the position adopted by KEADILAN as a party. As we are mindful of our differences with PAS or any parties, yet they shall not hinder our continuous engagement. KEADILAN acknowledged the existence of some major disagreements in policy issues with PAS. It warrants more intensive debate and engagement with its leadership but not by the severance of ties with our allies.

KEADILAN is committed to a strategy focusing on fighting the common enemy that is the corrupted regime of Umno. In any circumstance, we will consistently seek cooperation with any forces that share the same objective.

We accept that all sides may have good reasons to insist on their respective standpoints. However the prolonged arguments and accusations frustrate the ordinary citizens who are in deep suffering and find no way out. KEADILAN calls on all parties to ceasefire and begin to reflect deeply to find solutions to fulfill the people’s expectation.

KEADILAN will embark a new process of rebuilding a new platform of cooperation starting with a series of bilateral and multilateral discussions and negotiations. We must avoid repeating the same mistake by rushing into launching a new coalition pact hastily. Any political pact to be launched must ensure the broadest spectrum of political movements represented. Inclusivity is the key to create a strong consolidated force to challenge Umno in the next GE. To achieve this, KEADILAN will facilitate a series of confidence building measures with all parties including PAS, DAP, PAN and others.

In the meantime, leaders of all parties should show to their voters wisdom and rationality. Stop all finger pointing in faulting one another, let’s move beyond our own partisan interests and provide a workable cooperation to lift the nation up from this scandal-riddled mess.

Amanah sedia kerjasama dengan sesiapa sahaja termasuk PAS, kata Timbalan Pengerusi

Sumber : The Malaysian Insider

Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) sedia menjalinkan kerjasama dengan mana-mana pihak termasuk PAS selagi matlamat mereka tetap sama iaitu menyelamatkan Malaysia, kata timbalan pengerusinya Salahuddin Ayub.

Dalam kenyataannya hari ini, Salahuddin berkata, dalam usaha menumbangkan Barisan Nasional (BN), mereka komited meneruskan kesinambungan penubuhan Pakatan Rakyat (PR) 2.0 yang akan diwujudkan kemudian.

“Sejak daripada awal penubuhan Gerakan Harapan Baru, saya menyatakan sikap kami sentiasa terbuka untuk bekerjasama dengan mana-mana pihak sama ada parti politik, organisasi bukan kerajaan (NGO) atau mana-mana individu yang meletakkan matlamat menyelamatkan Malaysia dan masa depan rakyat dan negara,” kata Salahuddin.

Bekas naib presiden PAS itu berkata, pendirian Amanah berhubung perkara itu juga tidak pernah berubah.

“Saya ingin menegaskan pendirian itu tidak pernah berubah sekalipun kami kini bergerak atas nama Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) yang akan dilancarkan secara rasmi pada 16 September ini.

“Amanah komited meneruskan kesinambungan perjuangan rakyat bersama semua parti politik pembangkang melalui muafakat politik baru, PR 2.0 yang akan diwujudkan nanti, dalam usaha untuk menumbangkan BN,” katanya.

Beliau bagaimanapun berkata, kesediaan untuk bekerjasama dan berunding itu hanya akan berlaku sekiranya terdapat keperluan untuk tujuan itu.

“Sebagai sebuah parti politik Islam yang mengangkat nilai inklusif, tentunya Amanah terbuka untuk berunding, termasuk dengan PAS, atau mana-mana pihak lain, jika wujudnya keperluan itu.

“Bagi Amanah, jiwa besar kami adalah mahu menggembeling semua pihak, agar negara ini dapat diselamatkan daripada segala kebejatan yang berlaku akibat tindakan rakus dan salah urus kerajaan BN,” katanya.

Ahli Parlimen Sepang Mohamed Hanipa Maidin sebelum ini berkata, pihaknya tidak yakin PAS akan membawa permuafakatan dan menguntungkan gabungan pembangkang baharu.

Malah katanya, kehadiran PAS dalam gabungan baharu itu tidak dapat diterima DAP yang sememangnya diketahui berbeza pendapat dengan pemimpin parti Islam itu.

“Bagi saya dengan sikap, gaya politik dan stail saf kepimpinan PAS yang ada sekarang, saya tidak rasa PAS adalah aset kepada PR 2.0.
“Saya juga tidak nampak bagaimana DAP boleh menerima keberadaan PAS dalam PR 2.0 setelah apa yang DAP rasai dalam PR dulu,” katanya.

Hanipa mengakui kekuatan PAS yang memiliki sokongan orang Melayu perlu diambil kira, tetapi gabungan baharu juga perlu memikirkan kesan daripada para pengundi bukan Melayu yang tidak menyokong PAS kerana sikap mereka dalam PR sebelum ini. – 8 September, 2015.

Press Release: Opposition must stand united to tackle current crisis

I refer to Keadilan’s position to be inclusive and to work with all opposition parties, be it DAP or PAS or Amanah and NGOs, who are opposed to the misrule of the BN.

The public is relying upon us to bring change and reform to our country, especially in the current worsening political and economic situation. All of us- Keadilan, DAP, PAS, Amanah and various NGOs- owe it to the public to set aside all our differences and work together to save the country.

There have been several statements attributing Keadilan’s decision to be inclusive solely to party deputy president and Selangor MB Azmin Ali.

That is incorrect.

This was a decision of the party, and not of any one individual leader.

For the sake of the people, all forces arrayed against PM Najib and the BN must unite and cooperate to achieve our objective of a free, democratic and just system of governance.
