[PRESS RELEASE] Blocking of TMI must be lifted immediately

 26 FEBRUARY 2016

Blocking of TMI must be lifted immediately

The blocking of The Malaysian Insider by the MCMC since yesterday marks yet another act of utmost desperation by Prime Minister Najib Razak to muzzle the independent media.

I categorically condemn this move and call for its immediate and unconditional lifting.

This is yet another case of reckless abuse of executive power in a long line of constitutional violations by the government in a systematic campaign to cower independent news organisations into submission.

However, what is at stake here is not just freedom of information and expression but the very foundations of constitutional democracy where the rule of law must prevail over the rule of the powers that be.

Our economy is already in the doldrums and investors’ confidence is at its lowest in view of the string of scandals and the blatant disregard for transparent and accountable financial practices under the current administration.

In light of the various other acts of desperation such as the unwarranted prosecution of the voices of dissent, the use of police powers to intimidate journalists, the arbitrary action of the Attorney-General to discontinue investigations related to the Prime Minister, what we are witnessing is the institutional breakdown of democratic processes that will ultimately take this nation to the tipping point.

We remind Najib that the people will not be fooled because truth cannot be covered by falsehood and scandals involving the highest echelons of power will continue to be exposed.

SHAH ALAM, 25 FEB: Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali menyarankan Selangor Cyber Valley yang dijenamakan semula oleh Perbandanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS) dibangunkan dengan elemen ‘internet on things’.

Katanya, elemen itu selaras dengan gagasan Smart Selangor seterusnya menarik pelaburan baru.

“Keputusan PKNS ini sangat bertepatan kerana hari ini kita hadapi cabaran getir dan ia memerlukan kepimpinan tegas dan berani untuk bawa perubahan dengan idea baru dan bukan sekadar memperkukuhkan imej PKNS.

“Saya yakin kawasan ini akan menjadi mercu tanda kepada Selangor dengan memastikan pembangunan kawasan ini akan merangkumi ciri-ciri sebuah smart city kerana lokasi strategik berhampiran Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA) dan pelabuhan antarabangsa Westport,” katanya di Majlis Penjenamaan Semula Taman Sains Selangor 2, di SACC, di sini.

Mohamed Azmin berkata pembangunan Cyber Valley itu juga harus mempunyai lokaliti, kedudukan fizikal dan ciri-ciri unik secara holistik dengan dunia cyber masa kini.

“Jarang sekali kita lihat aplikasi ‘internet on things’ dan pembangunan smart city serta smart state sebagai satu pendekatan baru yang akhirnya dapat menjamin kesejahteraan dan kemakmuran sebuah komuniti,” katanya.

Beliau turut memuji usaha PKNS dalam usaha mencari peluang baru menambah pendapatan pelaburan untuk negeri.

“Selama ini kita terlalu bergantung pada pengurusan tanah sebagai sumber utama pendapatan negeri dan sudah tentu pendekatan ini tidak kekal dalam keadaan pembangunan di negeri Selangor.

“Sudah menjadi tanggungjawab semua pihak sedaya upaya mencari sumber baru dengan menggunakan pendekatan ‘internet on things’,” katanya.

PKNS To Develop Selangor Cyber Valley In Sepang

SHAH ALAM, Feb 25 (Bernama) — Selangor Cyber Valley which is developed by the Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) is poised to be transformed into a smart, green and sustainable development valued at RM16.9 billion.

PKNS General Manager Azlan Md Alifiah said Selangor Cyber Valley previously known as Selangor Science Park 2 (SSP2) was capable of becoming an integrated urban growth centre while retaining its harmonious, comfortable landscape and commercial value.

“PKNS will also provide 2,256 units of Selangorku houses in stages beginning next year,” he said at the SSP2 rebranding as Selangor Cyber Valley, here today at the ceremony launched by Selangor Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.

Selangor Cyber Valley, the eleventh urban centre built by PKNS, would be built on a 1,300 acre site in the Sepang District and the development implementation is estimated to take 20 years.

Azlan said the urban centre would be equipped with high-speed broadband service for commercial and residential use in line with its urban development concept which emphasizes on work-live-play.

At the event PKNS also signed a sale-and-purchase agreement with Brainy Bunch Islamic Montessori to build an integrated religious school on a five-acre site.
