The Orang Asli will given way, rightly by the Selangor Government

22 APRIL, 2009


SHAH ALAM: The State Executive Councilors’ Meeting today decided to withdraw the State Government’s appeal to the Federal Court with respect to the Sagong Tasi case involving the acquisition of 38.477 acres of the Temuan tribe’s customary lands at Bukit Tampoi, Dengkil in 1995.

Accordingly, the State Legal Advisor will inform the Federal Court tomorrow of the State Government’s intention to withdraw from the case.

The State has also taken into account the concerns raised in the Court of Appeal judgment in respect of the gazette of Orang Asli land and has formed an Orang Asli Land Taskforce – which will be launched on May 4, 2009 – to address land-related issues.

The Pakatan Rakyat Government in Selangor hopes that the decision will foster a stronger working relationship needed to address all the problems of the Orang Asli who have been marginalized from mainstream development. The State Government believes in protecting the rights of indigenous peoples and will continue to treat the Orang Asli community with the respect they deserve and that should have been accorded to them from the very beginning.

The Selangor government has decided not to challenge the landmark court judgment which recognised the right of a group of Orang Asli to their customary land in Bukit Tampoi, Dengkil.
In 2005, the Court of Appeal upheld the Shah Alam High Court’s judgment that Sagong Tasi and six others from the Temuan tribe be compensated under the Land Acquisition Act 1960 for the loss of their 38-acre customary land in Bukit Tampoi.

The court dismissed the appeal by the federal government, the Selangor government, the Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA) and United Engineers Malaysia Berhad (UEM) who argued that native customary and ancestral rights are not equivalent to propriety rights under common law.

Both UEM and MHA have been ordered by the court to pay damages for trespassing on the ancestral land to build a highway to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The two were also ordered to pay exemplary and special damages for the harsh treatment meted out to the Orang Asli when being evicted from their land.

On hearing the judgment, 350 Orang Asli who had gathered outside the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya jumped for joy.

But their jubilation was short-lived as the four appellants have since gone to the Federal Court – the country’s highest court – in the bid to reverse the judgment.

Gov’t wants to protect their rights

But today, the executive council of the Selangor government, one of the four appellants, has decided to pull out from the case.

“Accordingly, the state legal advisor will inform the Federal Court tomorrow of the state government’s intention to withdraw from the case,” said Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim.

Khalid said that his state government will set up an Orang Asli Land Taskforce, to be launched on May 4, to address such land-related issues.

“The Pakatan Rakyat government in Selangor hopes that the decision (to withdraw from the case) will foster a stronger working relationship needed to address all the problems of the Orang Asli who have been marginalised from mainstream development.

“The state government believes in protecting the rights of indigenous peoples and will continue to treat the Orang Asli community with the respect they deserve and that should have been accorded to them from the very beginning.”

The federal government has argued that prior to the tribe’s settlement in Bukit Tampoi 210 years ago, the land was already owned by the Selangor sultanate and therefore they could not have held native or customary rights status.

“The decision of the Appeals Court was therefore fundamentally flawed as the status of the land, which was part of the sultanate land, was not properly considered in the judgment,” senior federal counsel Mary Lim told the Federal Court.

Nizar: The Sultan and Me

‘Between the sultan and me’
Hafiz Yatim | Apr 21, 09 2:42pm malaysiakini.com
In the latest twist to the political saga in Perak,
state ruler Sultan Azlan Shah was accused of not
citing any provisions under the state constitution
when ordering Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin to resign as
menteri besar.


nizar jamaluddin perak mb court trial perak bn takeover zambry 180209 03This was
revealed in an affidavit filed by the ousted
menteri besar with the Kuala Lumpur High Court
registry yesterday.

The Pakatan Rakyat leader gave a detailed
account of what had transpired at the crucial
meeting with the ruler on Feb 4 and 5.

Mohd Nizar also denied and questioned the version
stated by Perak legal advisor Ahmad Kamal
Md Shahid in his affidavit. According to him,
Ahmad Kamal’s version did not constitute the whole truth.

In his affidavit to support the affidavit by
Barisan Nasional’s newly installed menteri besar
Zambry Abdul Kadir, Ahmad Kamal noted that
the ruler had cited the constitution when
ordering the ousted menteri besar to resign.

Mohd Nizar also revealed that during his
15-minute audience with the Sultan on Feb 5,
he had warned the ruler of the possible
consequences he could face in failing to dissolve
the state assembly.

According to the affidavit, Mohd Nizar said
the ordeal began on Feb 4, when he met
the ruler to seek his permission to dissolve
the assembly to end the deadlock following
the sudden disappearance of three assemblypersons
– Mohd Osman Jailu (Changkat Jering),
Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi (Behrang) and
Hee Yit Foong (Jelapang) – who had “resigned”.

However, the sultan told Mohd Nizar that he
would think about the request and recited a
passage from the Quran
Innallaha maa Sobirin
(God is with the person who is patient).

Mohd Nizar said he respected the decision
and during the meeting, he also submitted a
draft for the dissolution of the assembly for
the ruler’s approval.

However, the ousted menteri besar denied
making any suggestion to the ruler that the
assembly had lost confidence in him as the
leader of the executive and for that reason,
he wanted the dissolution of the assembly.

Several reasons cited

dr zambry abdul kadir new perak cm 110209 03
On Feb 13,
Mohd Nizar filed an application for a judicial review,
in challenging Zambry’s appointment and sought
several declarations pertaining to the interpretation
of Article 16 (6) of the Perak Constitution.

In his application, Mohd Nizar claimed to be
the rightful chief executive of the state on
the grounds that there was no dissolution of
the state legislature, no motion of no-confidence
was taken in the House against him and he did not
resign from the post.

He also issued a writ of quo warranto asking Zambry
to show cause by what authority he was occupying
the post of menteri besar.

Mohd Nizar said in his affidavit that the sultan had
informed him on Feb 5 that he was not acceding to
the request to dissolve the assembly.

The ousted menteri besar then requested for another
15-minute audience with the ruler and proceeded to
list out several reasons as to why the assembly
should be dissolved. These include:

malaysian law conference 291007 sultan azlan 21) He was applying for
the dissolution of the assembly based on his power
as the menteri besar.

2) Power should be returned to the people to choose
a lawful government.

3) If the assembly was dissolved, the people would
respect and improve and uplift the image of the royal
institution and they would also be thankful. This will
show that the sultan is just and non-partisan in letting
the people to decide. This was in accordance with the
concept of constitutional monarchy, and the democracy
principles that the state upholds.

4) The sultan should be thankful and accept God’s gift
in allowing him to celebrate his silver jubilee and to return
the peoples’ right to choose their own government.

5) Should the ruler not grant the dissolution, the people
would blame the palace and the sultan himself.

6) Where was BN’s morality in accepting Jamaluddin,
Mohd Osman and Hee, with two of them facing corruption
charges. What if Jamaluddin and Mohd Osman are found
guilty of corruption, what would happen next? If the
charges are withdrawn, the people would feel that it
was based on intervention by the palace or BN.

7) If the assembly is dissolved, the royalty and the palace
would be respected in the eyes of the public and international community. The question of immunity of the rulers as
brought about by (former premier) Dr Mahathir Mohamad
would also be negated.

8) Mohd Nizar cited a passage from Sultan Azlan Shah’s
book titled ‘Constitutional Monarchy, the Rule of Law
and Good Governance
‘ which had been given to him
by the ruler on his appointment as menteri besar. The passage
stated: “Under normal circumstances, it is taken for granted
that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong would not withhold his
consent to a request for the dissolution of the Parliament.
His role is purely formal.”

9) He also reminded the ruler of what happened in
countries like Indonesia, Philippines, Egypt and Iran
which once had a monarchy. However, once the monarchy
reneged and sided with a political party, it resulted in
their downfall.

Refused to resign

Mohd Nizar said he also told the sultan that during his
silver jubilee celebrations, the latter had emphasised
on good governance and pleaded with the ruler to
uphold it by dissolving the assembly.

He also reminded the ruler of the statutory letter signed
by the 31 Pakatan elected assemblypersons in support
of him being menteri besar which was ordered by the palace.

Following this, Mohd Nizar said: “The sultan slowly raised
his face and said he would not order the dissolution and
instead called for my resignation.”

Refusing to do so, the ousted menteri besar then replied:
“Ampun Tuanku, patik pohon sembah derhaka”
(Forgive me your highness, I humbly beg to disagree).

He then kissed the hand of the ruler, who left the room
without uttering a word.

In a related development, the sultan’s private secretary
Colonel Abdul Rahim Mohd Noor had also filed an affidavit
on April 8.

najib pc on bn takeover of perak state with 4 aduns 050209 03
He stated that
while Mohd Nizar informed the sultan of
the resignations of Mohd Osman, Jamaluddin
and Hee, he had received letters from the trio
on the same day, disputing this.

On Feb 4, Abdul Rahim received letters from the three
claiming they had lost their confidence in Mohd Nizar and
indicating that they would leave the party to become
independents but support BN.

At about the same time, he also received a letter signed
by 27 BN elected representatives that they had also lost
their confidence in Mohd Nizar and that BN now commanded
the majority in the House.

The case has been slated for hearing at the Kuala Lumpur
High Court on Thursday.

Kedurjanaan Petugas Pilihan Raya BN di Bukit Gantang

Gambar-gambar di atas oleh Leo, jurukamera blog Wanita KEADILAN

Ahli Parlimen Seputeh, Teresa Kok hari ini mendesak polis dan Menteri Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga & Masyarakat, Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil memandang serius kes pencabulan ke atas ahli Srikandi Keadilan pada pilihanraya kecil parlimen Bukit Gantang lalu.

Beliau meminta Sharizat yang sebelum ini yang bersuara lantang membela wanita daripada gangguan seksual supaya mengambil kes ini dengan serius dan mendesak pihak polis melakukan sesiatan dan mendakwa mereka yang telribat di mahkamah. Shrizat setakat ini membisu dan tidak memberi sebarang komen setakat ini.

Teresa berjanji akan membawa kes in ke sidang Parlimen dan menuntut supaya Menteri Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat Sharizat Jalil supaya mengabil segera bagi menyelesaikan perkara ini sehingga dibawa ke pengadilan.

Sementara itu, Wanita KeADILan Zuraida Kamaruddin mahu kes ahli Srikandi KeADILan yang telah di ganggu dalam cubaan mencabul dengan gangguan seksual semasa kempen pilihanraya kecil P59 Bukit Gantang pada 6 April lalu diambil tindakan segera oleh pihak polis.

Beliau juga mahukan penjelasan daripada Bernama TV yang telah membuat liputan dan melaporkan bahawa Srikandi KeADILan itu bersifat penggoda dan juga membuat laporan palsu kepada pihak polis.

“Wanita KeADILan mahukan penjelasan dari Bernama dan jika tidak kami tidak akan teragak-agak untuk mengambil tindakan saman terhadap agensi berita berkenaan,” tegas Zuraida semasa sidang akhbar beliau selepas majlis Hi Tea Wanita Pakatan Rakyat semalam.

Dalam sidang akhbar beliau hari ini, Zuraida menekankan bahawa selepas dua minggu insiden itu berlaku namun masih tiada siasatan atau tindakan yang diambil oleh pihak polis.

Ekoran laporan polis oleh wanita KeADILan itu di Balai Polis Simpang, Bukit Gantang pada hari kejadian, seorang ahli Srikandi yang hanya mahu dikenali dengan panggilan ‘Ana’, 20, bahawa pada kira-kira jam 4 petang, beliau dan lima lagi rakan-rakan Srikandi lain sedang berjalan melalui bilik gerakan Barisan Nasional berdekatan kawasan Simpang.

Lalu beliau ditarik dan dikepung oleh sekumpulan lebih sepuluh orang lelaki berumur kira-kira 50 – 60 tahun dan cuba melondehkan seluar yang dipakainya pada waktu itu. Mereka juga mengeluarkan kata-kata lucah dan kesat terhadap beliau dan mempersendakan beliau.

Sebanyak tiga laporan polis telah dibuat oleh pihak Wanita KeADILan, di Balai Polis Simpang dan Balai Polis Changkat Jering dan diberi jaminan bahawa pihak polis akan mengambil tindakan yang sewajarnya namun setelah dua minggu berlalu tidak menampakan sebarang perkembangan yang dibuat oleh pihak polis.

Walaupun pihak Wanita KeADILan telah memberi gambar-gambar penyokong BN yang disyaki terlibat serta menyatakan ada rakaman CCTV daripada sebuah supermarket berhampiran namun tiada sebarang siasatan diambil oleh pihak polis.

“Saya berjumpa dengan seorang anggota polis yang berpangkat inspektor bernama Shahrin dan beliau telah berjanji akan memastikan kes ini dibawa ke pengadilan, maka saya akan pergi ke dua-dua Balai Polis untuk membuat tindakan susulan,” tegas Zuraida lagi.

Dalam kejadian tersebut, Ana telah diselamatkan oleh seorang penceramah bebas Arsian Napi, 50, serta seorang lagi rakan beliau yang kebetulan sedang minum di sebuah gerai berhampiran tempat kejadian yang juga berhadapan dengan bilik gerakan BN Simpang.

Beliau dengan tangkas bergegas ke tempat kejadian kerana mensyaki satu kejadian yang pelik sedang berlaku di situ. Beliau kemudiannya meleraikan kejadian yang menjijikkan dilakukan oleh sekumpulan penyokong BN yang sebaya dengan beliau.

“Saya dan rakan di pukul dan di halau dengan kata-kata kesat serta memaki hamun dangan perkatan yang tidak sedap di dengar,” kata Arsian semasa sidang akhbar tersebut.

Ibubapa Ana merasa amat terkilan dan sedih keatas nasib yang menimpa anak mereka dan mahukan latarbelakang Ana dirahsiakan demi menjaga maruah keluarga dan diri Ana dari difitnah oleh orang-orang yang berniat jahat terhadap beliau.

“Mereka meminta supaya identiti Ana tidak di hebahkan atas alasan keluarga Ana tinggal di kampung dan tidak mahu pihak tertentu mangambil kesempatan keatas musibah yang berlaku,” jelas Zuraida lagi.

Walau bagimanapun pihak Wanita akan pergi ke dua-dua Balai Polis berkenaan dan mendesak supaya pihak polis beertindak dengan segera.

MB Pahang diarah bayar RM63 juta

Mahkamah Tinggi Kuantan hari ini mengarahkan Menteri Besar Pahang, Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob, melunaskan bayaran penghakiman berjumlah RM63 juta kepada sebuah syarikat kerana melanggar perjanjian pemberian konsesi pembalakan di Mukim Bebar, Pekan, dekat Kuantan.

Hakim Datuk Abd Halim Aman memutuskan pihak responden (menteri besar) perlu melunaskan bayaran berkenaan dalam tempoh 14 hari bermula hari ini.

Ketika membenarkan permohonan perintah ‘mandamus’ (untuk memaksa) syarikat Seruan Gemilang Makmur Sdn Bhd., Abd Halim berkata, tindakan itu dibenarkan selepas segala saluran perundangan untuk menuntut bayaran itu telah selesai.

Syarikat berkenaan memperoleh perintah bayaran penghakiman dari Mahkamah Tinggi Kuantan pada 25 Mei 2007 dan kerajaan negeri gagal membuat bayaran tersebut, lapor Bernama.

“Pendirian sebegini mencerminkan keengganan kerajaan negeri mematuhi kehendak statutori dan secara tidak munasabah membebankan rakyat (pembayar cukai) kerana ia akan membebankan kerajaan negeri dari segi faedah harian,” katanya.

Abd Halim berkata permohonan responden untuk mengenepikan tindakan ‘mandamus’ itu dengan hujah bertulis bahawa syarikat terbabit salah menamakan menteri besar sebagai responden adalah tidak tepat.

“Menteri besar adalah orang yang tepat serta berkelayakan untuk dinamakan sebagai responden kerana di Pahang dan mana-mana negeri sekalipun kecuali Sabah dan Sarawak, tiada wujud jawatan menteri kewangan negeri,” katanya.

Beliau berkata, mengikut Artikel 41 (1) Undang-Undang Tubuh Kerajaan Pahang turut menyatakan menteri besar mempunyai kuasa serta berkompeten untuk menyempurnakan jumlah bayaran dari Tabung Kumpulan Wang Yang Disatukan Negeri.

Fail semakan kehakiman

Seruan Gemilang diwakili peguam Rajoo D Moothy dan Richard Bong Chong Fook manakala Adnan diwakili oleh Datuk Shafie Abdullah.

Pada 15 Oktober 2008, syarikat pembalakan berkenaan memfailkan permohonan ‘mandamus’ setelah gagal menerima sebarang pembayaran walaupun telah menuntut pembayaran jumlah penghakiman dan faedah pada 7 April 2008 dan 27 Ogos 2008.

Pada 9 Disember 2002, syarikat itu memfailkan saman terhadap kerajaan negeri Pahang Pahang dan Pengarah Perhutanan Negeri kerana didakwa melanggar perjanjian

kontrak konsesi pembalakan berhubung pengeluaran kayu balak di atas tanah seluas 4,000 hektar di Mukim Bebar.

Pada 17 September tahun lalu, kerajaan Pahang diperintah membayar sejumlah RM60 juta kepada syarikat tersebut selepas ia gagal dalam usaha terakhirnya di Mahkamah Persekutuan untuk mendapat kebenaran merayu.

Mahkamah Persekutuan dengan itu mengekalkan keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi Kuantan pada 25 Mei 2007 yang memerintahkan kerajaan Pahang membayar RM37,127,471.60 beserta faedah lapan peratus setahun mulai 31 Disember 2000.

Sementara itu, Penasihat Undang-Undang Kerajaan Negeri, Datuk Mat Zara’Ai

(Zara’Ai) Alias berkata pihaknya akan memfailkan permohonan menangguhkan keputusan esok.

Malah beliau berkata, pihaknya sebelum ini juga telah memfailkan semakan kehakiman terhadap keputusan Mahkamah Persekutuan pada 17 September tahun lalu.

Berulang kali persoalan: Apa motif mereka yang disabit telah membunuh Altantuya?

Razak Baginda is taboo, TV stations told
Apr 18, 09 7:34am
Four private television stations have been ordered not
to name political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda when
reporting the Altantuya Shaarriibuu murder case.


Malaysiakini has learnt that the
top management of Media Prima Berhad –
the owner of the four TV stations –
had issued a directive on the matter.

The media giant, which is believed to be
linked to ruling party Umno, controls
the country’s four free-to-air private TV stations –
TV3, ntv7, 8TV and tv9.

The directive was part of an email sent on behalf
of the group director of news and current affairs,
elevision networks, Kamarulzaman Zainal.

Kamarulzaman was press secretary to
Abdullah Ahamd Badawi when the former
premier was deputy PM. He was appointed
to helm Media Prima soon after Abdullah
took power in 2003.

abdul razak baginda pc 201108 07

The email listed four ‘don’ts’ involving
news reports relating to the high-profile murder
case of Mongolia national Altantuya, who was
mistress of Razak Baginda (left).

The TV stations were ordered not to mention
Razak Baginda’s name and ignore all news
background related to him.

Editors were instead told to focus their
reports on the two accused in the murder trial,
who were sentenced to death last week.

Razak Baginda, a close confidant of newly-minted
Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, was charged
with abetting the murder but was later freed.

The controversial court decision had sparked
off a fresh round of speculations that the
powers-that-be had a hand in the acquittal.

Don’t show footage of Razak Baginda

Not only that the political analyst’s name
should not be mentioned, visuals showing him
in previous trials and after his release are also
banned, according to the email.

The other two restrictions were related
to the new premier.

najib rosmah and altantuya murder case

The TV stations were barred from reporting that Najib
nd his wife, Rosmah Mansor, were linked
to the case.

Also, statements from those accusing Najib
and Rosmah of being involved in the case
were also prohibited.

It is not clear whether Media Prima has been
instructed by government officials to ‘cleanse’
the three key personalities from the Altantuya case.

The email, which has been widely circulated
in the company, was sent last week to editors
of all different language sections within
the Media Prima group.

An assistant from Kamarulzaman’s office told Malaysiakini that his boss was currently overseas and
would not be available to comment on the directive.
There is also no response to an email sent
to Kamarulzaman.

The Media Prima ban came hot in the heels
of a blackout by state-owned RTM on reporting
the on-going political crisis in Terengganu.

Malaysiakini has reported on
Wednesday that RTM blacked out news on the apparent boycott of the Terengganu state
assembly sitting by 10 state representatives
earlier this week. This was however denied by the government.

Hefty ‘commission’
for Razak Baginda’s company

Last week, two police special action force personnel –
chief inspector Azilah Hadri and corporal Sirul Azhar Umar
– were sentenced to death by the Shah Alam High Court
for murdering Altantuya.

The two, who were part of a security detail to
protect VIPs including Najib, have since appealed
to the higher court.

Since the case hit the headlines, Najib has been
forced to repeatedly deny having any links with
Altantuya and the murder case.

military malaysia navy french built<br /> submarine scorpene classWhen Najib was defence minister, a company
controlled by Razak Baginda was awarded a
‘commission’ of RM534.8 million for the purchase
of two Scorpene submarines from France.

The government has denied that the contract given
Perimekar was a hefty commission but for the compnay
“to prepare support and coordination services” for a
period of six years.

The opposition has been exploiting both issues to
attack Najib’s integrity, especially during the three
key by-elections earlier this month.

This had prompted the police to issue a gag order
on all political ceramah from raising the controversial
murder case.

Laporan dedah kelemahan MB T’ganu
Muda Mohd Noor | Apr 17, 09 4:26pm malaysiakini.com
kemaskini 7.17pm Lebih sepuluh ADUN Barisan Nasional menerima laporan gelagat pentadbiran menteri besar Terengganu – didakwa penuh dengan politik cantas dan kelemahan – yang menjadi asas kemarahan mereka.

Mereka memulaukan persidangan DUN pada Selasa dengan alasan nyawa mereka terancam susulan muncul mesej SMS ugutan bunuh – dipercayai berkaitan ura-ura membawa usul tidak percaya terhadap menteri besar itu.

Dalam laporan kepada kira-kira separuh ADUN parti itu, Datuk Ahmad Said didakwa memecat pegawai dan tokoh politik dalam era pentadbiran Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh yang digantikannya.

Mereka yang dipecat termasuklah ketua pegawai eksekutif Institut Pembangunan Terengganu (TDI) Dr Azmi Omar, dan ahli-ahli lembaga pengarah syarikat pelaburan negeri Terengganu Inc. Datuk Seri Azlan Hashim dan Tan Sri Razali Ismail.

Bekas ketua Puteri Umno negeri, Nordiana Shafie diberhentikan sebagai pengerusi lembaga pengarah Kuantan Medical Centre (KMC) dan khidmatnya sebagai senator tidak disambung sepenggal lagi.

“Jawatan senator diberi kepada ketua-ketua Wanita (Umno) yang tidak lagi mampu menyumbang kepada negeri,” laporan itu dipetik.

Laporan itu mendakwa, pengarah eksekutif Ladang Rakyat Terengganu Sdn Bhd, pengurus besar Kemaman Supply Base (KSB), dan pengurus besar Konsortium Pelabuhan Kemaman juga dipecat.

Laporan tanpa tarikh itu – yang diperolehi Malaysiakini hari ini – juga mendakwa Ahmad melantik mereka yang tidak berkeupayaan untuk mengetuai beberapa agensi kerajaan negeri, termasuk Terengganu Inc.

Seorang penyokong PAS didakwa dilantik sebagai pengerusi lembaga pengarah syarikat perkayuan bawah Perbadanan Memajukan Iktisad Negeri Terengganu (PMINT).

Sementara dua bekas guru sekolah rendah masing-masing dilantik untuk memimpin Unit Terengganu Bestari (U-Best) dan KMC yang dianggap “tidak tepat.”

Menteri besar juga didakwa “membuat pertukaran besar-besaran (67 orang) para pegawai tadbir kerajaan negeri pada Disember 2008.”

“Ada di kalangan mereka yang diturunkan (pangkat) jawatan. Tindakan tersebut telah menyebabkan mereka hilang kepercayaan terhadap YAB menteri besar,” laporan itu dipetik.

Seorang pegawai Ahmad, ketika diminta penjelasan, enggan mengulas tuduhan-tuduhan ini.

Dihubungi hari ini, setiausaha Kelab Penyokong Kerajaan BN Terengganu, Alias Abdullah berkata, laporan itu diberikan kepada 12 atau 13 wakil rakyat BN negeri itu di Kuala Lumpur semalam.

“Kami pergi ke Kuala Lumpur sebagai persediaan untuk memberi penjelasan kepada (perdana menteri) Datuk Seri Najib Razak dan (timbalannya) Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin mengenai mengapa mereka tidak hadir sidang DUN,” katanya.

Idris, yang terlibat dalam kumpulan 10 ADUN tersebut, hadir memberikan penjelasan kepada Najib. Ahmad juga dipanggil memberikan taklimat berhubung krisis di negeri itu.

Bagaimanapun, kata ADUN Alor Limbat itu, rombongan ADUN itu tidak dipanggil memberi penjelasan.

Laporan tersebut tidak disediakan oleh kelab penyokong BN negeri tetapi dipercayai daripada kajian orang-orang Idris, jelas Alias lagi.

Manakala pengerusi kelab itu Datuk Rosol Wahid berkata, laporan itu dibuat untuk membolehkan ADUN mengetahui kelemahan menteri besar.

“Kelemahan ini yang menyebabkan pentadbiran kerajaan negeri menjadi huru-hara dan Umno tidak bersatu,” katanya kepada Malaysiakini.

Difahamkan Najib dan Muhyiddin menerima laporan insiden pemulauan DUN selepas mesej ugutan melalui SMS yang diterima menjelang tengah malam Isnin lalu.

Pergeseran antara menteri besar dengan 10 ADUN ini dijangka akan selesai dalam tempoh sebulan lagi.
