PETALING JAYA: Government officers have moved in to improve the conditions of the ‘House of
Horror’.

Taman Sinar Harapan shelter has come under scrunity following Sunday Star’s front-page report
yesterday on its sorry state.

Officers from the Social Welfare Department, Women, Family and Community Development Ministry,
volunteers and hoards of media personnel descended on the home yesterday.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, who has ordered his officers to check on the residents of the
home in Kuala Kubu Baru, wants those confirmed to have mental problems to be transferred to
government psychiatric wards for treatment.

There was a marked improvement in the home, which has 200 residents, yesterday. The floors were
cleaner, the stench was almost gone and nearly all the inmates were clothed. Previously, some of the
home’s residents were naked, chained up, caged and covered in their faeces and urine.

SIBU: Details on the huge investments from China will be announced soon, Prime Minister Datuk Seri
Najib Tun Razak said.

He said the Chinese government has allocated a huge fund specifically for investment in Malaysia as a
reflection of the excellent economic and social ties between the two nations.

“I will announce more details concerning this investment from China in time to come. The decision by
the Chinese government shows that they respect Malaysia a lot and have utmost confidence in us.

Malaysia has historical ties with China that stretches all the way back to Admiral Cheng Ho,” he said.
“For 500 years, we have developed such a relationship with China that our economies are intertwined,”
Najib added.

He said the Chinese who have chosen Malaysia as their home have contributed enormously towards
the development of the country and made what it is today.
“It is due to their hard work, entrepreneurship and innovation that they have helped to shape Malaysia’s
success,” he said.

Najib added that China looked at the country’s 1Malaysia policy with keen interest.

“It is reflected by the solid social and economic ties that have been enhanced with our country,” Najib
said when declaring open the 26th National Chinese Cultural Festival here. The cultural festival was
attended by Chinese associations from all over the country.

Najib said he was grateful to Sarawak and Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud for having done
an excellent job in solidifying racial and religious harmony.

PETALING JAYA: The Health Ministry and the Social Welfare Department are going to team up and
ensure that residents at the Taman Sinar Harapan home receive the care they deserve.

For a start, the department will recommend to the ministry that more frequent checks be conducted at
the home and other shelters to prevent the recurrence of similar shocking conditions in the future.

“The cooperation between us is already there,” said department deputy director-general (operations)
Halijah Yahaya. “Under the Mental Health Ordinance, the care of the mentally challenged is under the
purview of the ministry.

Currently, Halijah said the ministry was providing psychiatric care and doctors to the home.

“But they should make more frequent visits, not just once a month, but once every week.”

Meanwhile, legal experts claimed that the treatment of the residents was a breach of human rights and
international laws.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said Taman Sinar Harapan residents who were confirmed to
have mental problems would be transferred to government psychiatric wards.

He said he had ordered health officers to visit the home in Kuala Kubu Baru to check on the patients
and report to him by today.

“If they are genuine psychiatric patients, I will direct them to be transferred to government psychiatric
wards for treatment.

“They have no place in a home like Taman Sinar Harapan,” he said in an interview here yesterday.
Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil said she had
visited the home before and knew there were wards reserved and dedicated for the severely mentally
and physically challenged cases.

“I read the article with great concern. I have directed the ministry’s secretary-general Tan Sri Faizah
Tahir to prepare an in-depth report on the matter immediately,” she said.

PETALING JAYA: A comprehensive programme involving the government, non-governmental
organisations and the community must be created to promote mental health among Malaysians.

National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (Niosh) chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye said it
would also provide help to the depressed.

He said the programme was necessary in view of the Health Ministry’s latest findings that mental
illnesses was on the rise in the country. According to ministry statistics, there is an increase of 15.6% of
mental patients seeking treatment in government hospitals.

A total of 400,227 patients sought treatment last year compared to 346,196 in 2007.

Lee said increase in stress levels and complex social responsibilities were among the factors that
contributed to more people suffering mental disorders.

“For example, work stress should not be taken lightly,” he said in a statement yesterday.
“Such stress affects our physical and emotional health which will in turn affect others at home. The
consequences are many.”

Lee added that there were many forms of mental illnesses that differed in severity, duration and degree
but most were treatable.



Tajuk Artikel: Private funding a great help for charitable bodies, says
Chew
Sumber / Tarikh: The Star Online July 06, 2009 – Monday

JOHOR BARU: Charitable bodies need donations from private organisations to sustain their operations
as funds provided by the Government are not sufficient, said Deputy Women, Family and Community
Development Minister Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun.

“The grants given by the Government are definitely not enough and voluntary bodies have to use their
own means to increase their funding.

“This is where private organisations can come in by hosting charitable activities to collect funds for
them,” she said.

She said a total of RM7.5mil grants were given to 117 charitable bodies last year.

“However, that amount is only enough for their food bill, so funding from the private sector is very
important.

“The target groups are children’s homes, old folks and the disabled,” Chew said at the launch of the
Fifth Annual Charity Run organised by IOI Properties Bhd Johor Baru division, IOI Mall Bandar Putra
Kulaijaya and Kulai MCA Youth here yesterday.

Chew also urged the public to be more sensitive when it comes to the needs of the disabled.
“Every now and then we can see parking spaces that are reserved for the disabled being used by able-
bodied drivers.
“This clearly shows disrespect and intolerance toward this group of people,” she said, adding that the
disabled also had their rights.

IOI Properties Bhd senior general manager Simon Heng said that the charity run had been well-
received.

“I am pleased that this year there are about 1,500 participants compared to last year’s 1,200,” Heng
said.

He added that the group hoped to raise RM20,000 for disabled children from Persatuan Penjagaan
Kanak-Kanak Terencat Akal in Johor Baru.

PUTRAJAYA: Health authorities have recorded 12 locally-transmitted Influenza A (H1N1) cases
among 33 new cases within the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of infected people to 359 to
date.

Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Ismail Merican said the number of locally-transmitted cases have
so far reached 67 and so far no death was recorded.

He said the number of those still being treated was 102, while the rest have fully recovered. Of the
new cases, only 24 were Malaysians, while the rest were foreigners.

“As for the situation in schools, to date, only one class each in Seri Cempaka International School in
Cheras and SK Setapak Indah in Kuala Lumpur remain closed until Thursday.

“We would advise those who underwent throat swab at hospitals or at entry points to contact hospitals
to know their test results. They should be available within 24 hours after the sample was taken,” he
said yesterday.

Dr Ismail said the latest cases of Influenza A (H1N1) involved those who had visited Thailand,
Australia, Kuwait, Indonesia, Britain and the Philippines.

Health authorities were in the midst of tracing those who were on the same flights as the affected
people.

“We would also remind those who are under home quarantine to remain at home throughout the
seven days and not to go to public places, tuition or religious classes to prevent the spread of the
disease,” he said.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), as of 8am yesterday, a total of 91,065 cases with
387 deaths in 126 countries were recorded worldwide, with Malaysia among five countries which
recorded the highest number of new cases apart from Australia, China, Singapore, New Zealand and
Japan.
Tajuk Artikel: Tuition fees and research grants for IPTS

By ALYCIA LIM

PETALING JAYA: The Higher Education Ministry will extend its tuition fees and research grants for
masters and PhD courses to 19 private higher education institutions (IPTS) under the second stimulus
package.

The institutions are Utar, Malaysia University of Science & Technology, International Medical University
(IMU), Unisel, Unitar, Management & Science University (MSU), Monash University Malaysia, University
of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNIM), Curtin University of Technology, Swinburne University of
Technology, UCSI University, Selangor International Islamic University College (KUIS), Asia Pacific
University College of Technology & Innovation, Kuala Lumpur Infrastructure University College (KLIUC),
Sunway University College, HELP University College, Binary University College of Management &
Entrepreneurship, INTI University College, and Taylor’s University College.

The minisry had taken into account all IPTS and selected the most suitable ones, Minister Datuk Seri
Mohd Khaled Nordin said in a statement yesterday.

They were picked based on criteria such as the number of lecturers with PhDs, the amount of post-
graduate courses available and the total number of post-graduate students taking up courses at the
institution.

On March 10, the Government announced that it would finance tuition fees and research grants up to
RM20,000 for 500 PhD level students, and tuition fees of up to RM10,000 for 10,000 masters level
students.

The ministry received 4,493 scholarship applications as of June 12, of which 3,194 applications have
been approved.

Since May, there had been less than 100 applications per day. It was predicted that applications would
not increase drastically since all public higher education institutions have already sent out their offer
letters.

Due to the decreasing number of applications and since all the institutions have sent out their offer
letters, the Government has decided to extend the grant offers to these 19 selected IPTS.

Amendments have also been made to the age and grade requirements.

Applicants now have to be not over 45 years to be eligible for the masters and PhD grants. They must
meet a cumulative CGPA of 2.50 or its equivalent in their degrees to be eligible for the masters grant.

Tajuk Artikel: Residents protest against takeover

By BAVANI M

EMOTIONS ran high when about 1,000 residents of Taman Cheras Indah and Taman Maju Jaya in
Pandan gathered at the community hall in Taman Cheras Indah on Sunday to protest against the
Ampang Jaya Municipal Council’s (MPAJ) move to take over the management of the five community
halls that were established by the non-governmental organisation Bakti Nusa Malaysia Foundation,
which is involved in charity work.

The residents carried banners and protested against the move, which they claimed was “cruel” and
unfair, saying they were worried they would not be able to carry out activities they had been conducting
for the past 20 years once the halls were taken over by the MPAJ.

“I have held numerous Rukun Tetangga meetings here, as well as activities like tai chi and karoake
sessions with my family and friends from the neighbourhood, for the past two decades,’’ Taman Cheras
resident Jaafar Karim, 48, said.

                                                           “Why would they want to stop such a good
                                                           thing here? They (the MPAJ) should just
                                                           leave us alone,” he said.

                                                           G, Suria, 48, said he had been attending
                                                           ballroom-dancing sessions at the hall with his
                                                           family and neighbours for many years.

                                                       crowd at the community hall in Taman
                                                       Cheras Indah.
                                                       “The muhibbah spirit here is strong and we
as a community have grown and come together,” he said, adding that he was worried that the activities
would stop once the MPAJ took over the halls.
“Every day and night, the senior citizens would come here to enjoy a session of karaoke, while in the
morning we have tai chi and qigong activities.

“I can say it is 100% utilised! So what is the MPAJ’s reason for stopping all this?” asked resident
Raymond Chiew, Chew, 63, said so far, the local authority had not given a clear and concrete answer
as to why they wanted to take over the hall.

Pandan MP Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat, who made a surprise visit to the hall, said the MPAJ should be
free of political influence.

“From the standard stereotype answers they have been giving about merely following the directive
shows that they are under political influence ... which is why the state government under PKR has to be
answerable,’’ he said.

“If they were to argue that any facilities or premises sitting on government land has to be taken over by
the government, then I must ask about the green lung in Pandan Perdana which was used to build a
golf driving range.

“I objected to this project before the last general election and so did the opposition. But, after coming
into power, they condoned it. Why the double standards?” Ong asked.

Ong, who is also Transport Minister, questioned the MPAJ’s move to hand over the management of the
five community halls to the Residents Committee (Jawatankuasa Penduduk, JKP).

He said the recent ruling by the MPAJ to impose a RM50 registration fee on pasar malam traders which
was to be collected by the residents committee had created an uproar.

“Who are these JKP? They do not have the locus standi to do so; they are merely political tools of the
ruling party,” he said, adding that such actions would create chaos and were a form of oppression.

MPAJ president Datuk Mohammad Yacob said during the last full council meeting that the council would
be taking over the five community halls managed by Bakti Nusa Malaysia Foundation in July.

He said they were abiding by the directive issued by the state government and that the MPAJ would not
hesitate to take over the buildings by force if the occupants proved difficult.



Tajuk Artikel: Shoplots finally torn down

By STUART MICHAEL

FOUR shoplots at Batu 16, Rawang, were demolished by the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS)
enforcement department on Friday to pave the way for the construction of a new hypermarket in
Rawang.

A demolition exercise was supposed to have been conducted on June 4 but was aborted after MPS
president Datuk Zainal Abidin Azim issued a directive to halt it in the wake of a protest by the owners.

During that incident, one of the shopowners, Mohamat Nor Rajeae, 51, had held a brick and threatened
to hurl it at the worker who was operating the excavator after a wall from a shoplot was torn down.
Mohamat Nor said he had received a call from Zainal saying the demolition exercise had been called
off.

In the latest demolition exercise on Friday, half a dozen patrol cars were stationed at the site to prevent
any untoward incidents.

MPS assistant enforcement officer Paramasivam Chelliah said besides the 20 MPS enforcement
officers, there were about 20 police personnel at the site.

Several items in the shoplots, such as referigerators, air-conditioners and electrical items, were
removed by the MPS enforcement officers before the excavator moved in and started to break down the
side wall of one of the shoplots.

After the demolition, workers from the shops were seen loading the items onto a lorry to be taken away.

By JADE CHAN

DEPUTY Minister in the Prime Minister’s Depart-ment Datuk T. Murugiah will be holding a meeting at
his office tomorrow to address residents’ objections against the kiosks located along Jalan Putra
Bahagia 8/3, Subang Jaya.

“I will call all the relevant agencies involved to attend the meeting, including the Subang Jaya Municipal
Council (MPSJ), police and state assemblyman’s representatives.

“A decision will be made whether to let the kiosks remain at the present location or to relocate them
elsewhere,” said Murugiah, who heads the Public Complaints Bureau in Putrajaya.

“We will carefully evaluate the feedback from the affected parties, but our priority is the residents’
welfare.”

He visited the site in question on Friday after receiving residents’ objections against the kiosks due to its
proximity to two junctions and location that could cause inconvenience to other road users.

MPSJ deputy president Mohamad Yusoff Ghazali said the the council built the kiosks two years ago to
provide a proper trading venue for unlicensed hawkers.

“This site was selected because of its strategic location, business potential and convenience for
residents.

“It cost RM20,000 to build the eight kiosks. Business is conducted in three shifts — morning, afternoon
and night.

“The traders are allowed to sell food and drinks for takeaways only. They are not allowed to cook, or
place tables and chairs at their kiosks,” he said.

On residents’ complaints that some traders were frying noodles at their kiosk and placing tables and
chairs along the road, Mohamad Yusoff said the MPSJ would monitor the situation and revoke the
trader’s licence if they were caught flouting the rules.
Putra Heights Section 8 Residents Association chairman Selina Maria Yau said the residents objected
to the kiosks even during the initial construction stage, but their complaints were ignored.

She cited the residents’ safety as their primary concern, as Jalan Putra Bahagia 8/3 is a main entry
point for some 250 houses.

“As the kiosks are located at the road shoulder, customers would simply stop by the road to get down to
buy food.

“They park haphazardly and make illegal U-turns to get out after buying their food,” she said.
The residents are also worried about hygiene as the kiosks are located near a drain.

“We also discovered that the kiosks were initially built without temporary occupation of land (TOL), but
they were somehow legalised later,” said Yau, 41.

“The Sri Muda assemblyman (Shuhaimi Shafiei) suggested that the traders could be relocated to the
Bangau Apartments in Section 9.”

She said the residents hoped to have the kiosks completely removed before anything untoward
occurred.

On a separate matter, Murugiah said he would like to propose that the National Registration Department
place a representative in each hospital to overcome the problem of newborn babies not having birth
certificates.

“It was a culture shock for me when I happened to drop by the hospital in Cameron Highlands. Three
orang asli girls — aged 13, 15 and 16 — had just given birth but they didn’t know who their babies’
fathers were.

“And I learnt that they would be going back to their homes in the forest without getting their babies’ birth
certificates.

“This is a serious social problem in the country, and a mechanism must be found soon to resolve the
problem,” he said.

Sumber / Tarikh: New Straits Times Online July 06, 2009 – Monday

KUALA LUMPUR: A week to his 100th day in office, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has
expressed satisfaction with the performance of his cabinet members.

Najib, who was at a two-day retreat with his ministers at a hotel in Subang Jaya which ended on
Saturday, was happy with the commitment and dedication they had shown.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said Najib also reminded the
ministers to improve their performance to give effective and efficient service to the people.

Najib took his oath of office on April 3. He announced his cabinet a week later.

In the same month, he announced key performance indicators (KPI) for his ministers as a way to
monitor their performance and achievements.
Koh also said Najib was expected to announce several KPI initiatives, as every ministry had different
priorities.
“Some ministries could be appraised faster than others. We will try to identify key areas in setting the
KPI criteria and the prime minister will announce this soon.” Koh said the government had fast-tracked
the processes which included identifying key performance indicators for all ministries.

“According to our consultants,what would normally take corporate companies to achieve in two years,
we’re doing in a year,” he said at Wanita Gerakan’s fiesta at Taman Batu, off Jalan Kuching, yesterday.

On whether ministers who failed to meet their KPI would be “punished”, Koh said the government had
yet to formulate a penalty system.

The government was in the first phase of “motivating and energising” everyone to improve and also
implement the changes.

“It’s too early. The ministries will be evaluated in November and December. Only then can we see the
results.”



Tajuk Artikel: Seeking banking in of maids' dues
Sumber / Tarikh: New Straits Times Online July 06, 2009 – Monday

By : Jalal Abdul Rahim and Khairul Azran Hussin

KUALA LUMPUR: Employers wanting to renew their maids' work permits may soon be required to
produce the maids' bank passbooks as proof of payment of salaries.

The permits will be renewed only if the records show that the maids' salaries have been regular.

Sources said the proposal is to be discussed at a meeting in Putrajaya today between officials from
Malaysia, led by Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam, and Indonesia, led by
Manpower and Transmigration Minister Erman Suparno.

The move will not only guarantee that maids are paid on time and regularly, but will protect employers
from being falsely accused of not paying their salaries.

"It is hoped that this proposal will clear up the maids issue between both countries, which has taken
centre stage lately.

"We have had cases where employers delayed paying their maids' salaries with the excuse that their
household budgets had been affected by festive season celebrations or that their children had started
new school terms," one source said. He said such unacceptable excuses had contributed to the
problem and tarnished the country's image.

Recently, Suparno announced that Indonesia would temporarily stop sending domestic helpers to
Malaysia pending a review of a memorandum of understanding on migrant workers. The moratorium
applies only to domestic workers.

The proposal is in line with the Human Resources Ministry's recent announcement that it was seeking to
amend the Employment Act 1955 to make it compulsory for employers to bank in their maids' salaries.

Malaysian Association of Foreign Maid Agencies (Papa) president Datuk Raja Zulkepley Dahalan said
the requirement to pay salaries into a maid's bank account was not new.
"It was discussed before. Both Indonesia and Malaysia had agreed to this but it was not made
mandatory and would only be enforced if the maid requested for it," he said.

Subramaniam declined to comment when contacted, but said new regulations to be adopted would be
announced once finalised.

KUALA LUMPUR: The Health Ministry has found that 875 people in home quarantine after having come
into contact with influenza A (H1N1) patients do not have symptoms of the disease.
Nevertheless, Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Ismail Merican has requested that they continue
remaining at home and not go to public places or attend tuition or religious classes.

"If they have fever, cough, sore throat and cold, they should seek treatment at hospitals," he said in a
press statement yesterday.

He said Sekolah Kebangsaan Setapak Indah and the Seri Cempaka International School, both here,
had closed one class each until July 9.

Dr Ismail requested those who had throat swabs taken at government hospitals or entry points to test
for H1N1 infection to contact the hospitals to find out the test results.

"The results will usually be known 24 hours after the sample is taken." He said that as of 8am
yesterday, 33 new cases had been reported: 21 imported and 12 locally transmitted.
This brings the cumulative number of cases to 359 -- 292 imported and 67 locally transmitted cases.

In Kuching, the wearing of face masks is mandatory for the small army of workers at the Rainforest
World Music Festival and the Rainforest Crafts Bazaar which start on Friday.

Sarawak Tourism Board staff, stall operators, security personnel, cleaners, volunteers and journalists

STB general manager Benedict Jimbau yesterday said festival goers were also encouraged to wear
masks. Many medical stations will be set up at the venue.



Tajuk Artikel: Spot vital dengue signs early, doctors are told
Sumber / Tarikh: New Straits Times Online July 06, 2009 – Monday

KUALA LUMPUR: The fight against the rising number of dengue deaths can be won if doctors identify
the warning signs of dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) in time and hospitalise patients immediately. At
present, some non-critical patients are warded while those with DHF are not.

Hospital Sungai Buloh infectious disease physician Dr Suresh Kumar said this was because hospitals
treated dengue like any other disease.

"No other disease is as challenging to us as dengue because the symptoms are so unpredictable and
constantly changing.
"We should manage dengue patients much like trauma patients." He was giving an overview of the new
clinical practice guidelines for the management of dengue infection in adults at the Sime Darby Medical
Centre in Subang Jaya yesterday.

He said doctors could not rely on readings such as the blood platelet count to determine if a dengue
fever (DF) patient could develop DHF. And the subsiding fever in a DF patient after two to seven days
should not be seen as a sign of recovery.

Dr Suresh said: "Doctors should check if the patient is still suffering from persistent vomiting, abdominal
pain and lethargy.

"These could be warning signs that the patient might relapse into DHF, which could lead to sudden
death." He added that doctors treating dengue should consider how the patient felt.

In the first half of this year, 23,056 dengue infections were reported nationwide with 57 deaths.

During the same period last year, the figures were 18,894 cases and 39 deaths.

Commenting on the influenza A (H1N1) situation, he said the screening campaign would be stopped
once the spread of the disease was minimised.

"The Health Ministry's goal in having the screening is to prevent a widespread outbreak, which would
create social disruption."

Senior public health specialist (epidemiology) and head of the Selangor Vector Borne Disease Control
Unit, Dr B. Venugopalan, said Selangor accounted for half of the national dengue figures.

Tajuk Artikel: Selangor sacks, transfers bad officers

by Terence Fernandez and Llew-Ann Phang

SHAH ALAM (July 5, 2009): The Selangor government has sacked or transferred about 20 state-
appointed government officers in the past year for various offences ranging from dereliction of duty to
corruption.

Executive councillor for local government, research and development
Ronnie Liu said the officers were from various departments and agencies,
including local councils.

He declined to name or give the exact number against whom action was
taken, reasoning that it was in line with the state government’s bigger
agenda of weeding out the corrupt and incompetent.

“This is just the tip of the iceberg. Some of them have utterly under-
performed or have been involved in corruption. Those who were
transferred were because their offences were not major,” Liu told theSun.

He said those suspected of being corrupt had been referred to the
Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

“We are dead serious against misconduct and there are on-going investigations into numerous
complaints against officers.” he said, adding that for this to happen, hard evidence is needed.

“The challenge is to find complainants who are willing to give testimony to wrong-doings. Many are
worried that it may jeopardise their jobs or they think the current government will not stay for more than
one term.

“We have promised confidentiality, yet there are not many who are willing to give hard evidence. We will
not take action based on hearsay, as we don’t want to make mistakes,” Liu said.

He said these efforts are part of the state administration’s objective to reform the system of governance
to ensure there are no avenues for lax service, corruption or other forms of misconduct.
He said the present crop of local councillors is capable of playing a watchdog role.

“In fact, in the past year, we’ve seen a marked improvement in the running of local authorities. Some
have slashed their deficit, some have seen a surplus and four were awarded four stars by the Ministry of
Housing and Local Government,” he said.

On another matter, Liu said councillors for the 2009-2010 term will be sworn-in tomorrow. He also said
since their 2008-2009 term expired on June 30, they were not allowed to make any decisions.

He acknowledged criticisms that the councillors should have received their appointment letters earlier to
avoid any uncertainty but reasoned that this was to ensure that only the best are chosen.

He also clarified that the two former councillors who were bankrupt while serving had in fact not been
declared as such at the on-set of their appointments. “They are faced with legal issues and have started
paying off their debts, but we decided that they should not be re-appointed,” he said, adding that 80% of
the 288 councillors were re-appointed.
Tajuk Artikel: Dengue now more complicated to diagnose
Sumber / Tarikh: The Sun Online July 06, 2009 – Monday

Meena L. Ramadas

SUBANG JAYA (July 5, 2009): The dengue disease is
rapidly progressing and clinical diagnosis should be based
on symptoms relating to leakage of blood fluids.

“All our previous knowledge and gut feelings of dengue
disease don’t work anymore because the patient doesn't
look sick. The patient starts looking sick after going into
shock, which has a 80% mortality rate,” said Sungai Buloh
Hospital infectious disease physician Dr Suresh Kumar.

Doctors previously focused on blood results, particularly
the platelet count, to diagnose a patient with dengue. But not all patients exhibits low platelet counts
after contracting the disease.

“The haematocrit (HCT) level is a better indicator of dengue. HCT is the thickness of the blood.

The thicker the blood, the higher the plasma leakage," Kumar told a talk on Clinical Practice Guidelines
(CPG) on Dengue Awareness today.

According to him, it is this plasma leaking that leads a dengue patient into shock and causes excessive
bleeding.

“Our aim is to prevent patients from going into shock and the way to do that is to detect and stop the
leaking,” he said.

Plasma is liquid found in the blood and contains antibodies and other proteins. The warning signs of
plasma leakage are abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, restlessness and lethargy and liver
enlargement of more than 2cm among some of the symptoms.

Selangor State Health Department senior public health specialist (epidemiology) and head of the state
vector-borne disease control unit Dr B. Venugopalan said: “Patients do seek treatment early and
doctors often tell the patients to come back if the fever does not subside in two to three days.

But the fever does subside but only before the patient goes into shock. So, if doctors have detected
unusual heart rates, alarm bells for dengue should be ringing.”

Because of new studies, the Health Ministry and Academy of Medicine Malaysia have published a new
set of CPG to improve the recognitions and diagnosis of dengue cases and to offer the appropriate
care to patients.

The new guidelines were implemented in January and training seminars have been conducted to
update doctors to improve recognition and diagnosis of dengue cases.

This is important as the number of dengue cases has risen this year compared to last year.
According to Venugopalan, 23,056 cases were reported nationwide with 57 deaths between January
and June.

The Selangor Health Department has also said dengue is the highest recorded infectious disease in the
state with 12,562 cases reported as of June 27.
“Doctors should not get too fixated on blood results as symptomatic results are also important,” said
Kumar.

KUALA LUMPUR (July 5, 2009): The Health Ministry has found that 875 people undergoing home
quarantine after having come into contact with Influenza A(H1N1) patients do not have symptoms of the
disease.

Nevertheless, Director-General of Health Tan Sri Dr Mohd Ismail
Merican has requested them to continue remaining at home and not go
to public places or attend tuition or religious classes.

"If they have fever, cough, sore throat and cold, they should seek
treatment at hospitals," he said in a press statement here.

He also said that Sekolah Kebangsaan Setapak Indah and the Seri
Cempaka International School, both here, had closed one class each
until July 9.

Mohd Ismail requested those who had throat swabs taken at government
hospitals or entry points to test for H1N1 infection to contact the
hospitals to find out the lab test results.

"The results of the tests will usually be known in 24 hours after the sample is taken," he said.

He said Malaysians students and people on holiday returning from countries badly affected by the flu
outbreak to do self-monitoring.

Those who were unwell or had symptoms of infection such as cough and fever should immediately see
a doctor, stop mixing with friends and forgo attending classes or going to work, he said.

On the latest situation of the outbreak in the country, Mohd Ismail said that as of 8am today, 33 new
cases had been reported with 21 of them imported and 12 locally transmitted.

This brings the cumulative number of cases to 359, comprising 292 imported and 67 locally transmitted
cases.

"Of the 359 cases, 257 (or 72 percent) have recovered and have been discharged from hospital, leaving
102 still under treatment," he said.

Mohd Ismail said the new cases involved 24 Malaysians and nine foreigners, among them four
Indonesians, two Kuwaitis and one American, one Indian and one Thai.

Of the 21 imported cases, nine had visited Thailand, three Australia, three the Philippines, three
Indonesia, two Kuwait, and one the United Kingdom, he said.

He also said that the World Health Organisation (WHO) had informed that as of 8am today, the
cumulative number of cases in 126 countries was 91,065 with 387 deaths, up by 847 cases and four
deaths. - Bernama
Tajuk Artikel: Ministers had fruitful KPI discussions, says Koh
Sumber / Tarikh: The Sun Online July 06, 2009 – Monday

Husna Yusop
KUALA LUMPUR (July 5, 2009): The cabinet ministers had an “extremely fruitful”
discussion on the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) of the government during a two-
day session on Friday and yesterday, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department
Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak, who chaired the meeting, was
satisfied with the commitment and spirit shown by the ministers during the session,
which Koh termed a “work camp to advance, not to retreat".

“All members of the cabinet presented their preliminary key result areas (KRA)
together with the suggested KPIs. We looked at one another’s KPIs and KRAs and offered constructive
suggestions and criticisms. We were very motivated and energised," Koh told reporters yesterday.

“It underscores the sincerity and seriousness of the cabinet under the leadership of the PM to really
push for performance management to ensure fair and just, as well as efficient, delivery of services to the
people."

Earlier, Koh, who is also the Gerakan president, launched a "Fiesta Satu Hati" organised by the Federal
Territory Gerakan Wanita.

He said the recent workshop was the third conducted so far after the previous ones in May and June.

This will be followed by a major announcement by Najib, expected to be made soon.

“The PM pushed us beyond the limit to look at how we can more effectively address the major issues of
the country, as well as the pain points of the people," he said.

“These are issues we have deliberated upon and very soon there would be an announcement by the
PM on some of the major initiatives as well as reforms which will be implemented in earnest."

Koh said that according to consultants and experts in the field, the government has covered more than
what normally a corporate company would cover in developing their KPIs.

 “Corporate companies usually take between two and four years to fully implement and see the results.
But in view of the urgency of global economic crisis and the many issues that need to be handled and
resolved, we are actually fast-tracking it," he said.

“Even this initial process of getting preliminary KPIs and identifying areas of concern, which would
normally have taken one year or more, we have achieved in three months. It needs a lot of commitment
and resources in terms of time and energy being put in."

He said there has been full attendance of the ministers during the workshop held at a hotel in Subang
Jaya, except for one or two who had to work overseas.

The media was not officially informed or invited to cover the workshop as it was an internal process
which requires full concentration of the ministers.

“Don’t get us wrong. There was no attempt to bar the media or block or avoid you,” he said commenting
on unsuccessful attempts by the media on Saturday to interview the ministers as they were reportedly
prevented from entering the hotel by police personnel and security guards.

KUALA KANGSAR: Satu jawatankuasa khas akan diwujudkan bagi mengkaji serta meminda beberapa
akta yang digubal antara 1948 dan 1952 kerana dianggap sudah terkebelakang terutama daripada
jumlah denda yang dikenakan.

Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, berkata jawatankuasa itu akan
dipengerusikan timbalannya sendiri, Datuk Liew Vui Keong.

Beliau berkata, apabila jawatankuasa berkenaan dibentuk, proses mengkaji semula serta meminda akta
tertentu, terutama membabitkan jumlah denda dikenakan ke atas pesalah akan dibuat segera.

"Memanglah dianggap tidak lagi sesuai dengan keadaan semasa kerana akta itu dibuat antara 1948
dan 1952, di mana hukumannya dalam bentuk denda dengan sejumlah wang tidak lagi sama nilainya
ketika ini.

"Contohnya tindakan ke atas kesalahan Ahli Parlimen dikenakan denda maksimum RM1, 000 yang
dibuat pada 1952, tidak sesuailah pada masa ini dengan nilai sebanyak itu," katanya pada sidang
media selepas majlis perasmian Hari Keluarga Persatuan Bekas Tentera Malaysia (PBTM) cawangan
Chenderoh, di sini, semalam.

Nazri berkata, denda RM1,000 memang besar pada 1948 atau 1952, tetapi sekarang apa yang boleh
dibuat dengan wang sebanyak itu kerana nilainya terlalu kecil dan tidak sesuai lagi sekiranya dikenakan
denda maksimum.

Beliau berkata, antara akta lain yang turut disemak termasuk akta di bawah Jabatan Agama seperti
kesalahan antara lelaki dan perempuan berpegangan tangan di taman bunga, dikenakan denda jika
sabit kesalahan.

"Akta itu juga akan dikaji untuk pindaan kerana yang pergi ke taman bunga itu tidak semestinya untuk
tujuan tidak baik, mungkin antara suami isteri, ayah dan anak atau antara adik beradik,” katanya.

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Razak berpuas hati dengan semangat serta komitmen Jemaah
Menteri untuk melaksanakan Petunjuk Prestasi Utama (KPI) yang disifatkan sebagai transformasi dan
revolusi perkhidmatan kerajaan.

Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon, berkata Perdana Menteri yang
mempengerusikan kem kerja KPI bagi menteri Kabinet dua hari berakhir kelmarin juga mahu mereka
gigih menangani isu utama negara serta kepentingan rakyat.

“Perbincangan dalam kem kerja itu sangat berhasil. Semua ahli Kabinet membentangkan persediaan
awal Bidang Keputusan Utama (KRA) bersama cadangan KPI mereka.

“Kami saling meneliti KRA dan KPI masing-masing, sekali gus memberi cadangan serta kritikan
membina.

“Anggota Kabinet begitu bermotivasi serta bertenaga. Kita memang amat serius, berdedikasi dan
menumpukan banyak masa bekerjasama dengan pegawai serta tenaga pakar, termasuk mengenal
pasti bidang keutamaan dan inisiatif yang akan diumumkan Perdana Menteri tidak lama lagi.

“Menurut perunding dan pakar, syarikat korporat besar mengambil lebih setahun untuk sampai ke
peringkat proses ini, tetapi kita bekerja keras sehingga melakukannya dalam tiga bulan,” katanya
selepas merasmikan Fiesta Satu Hati anjuran Wanita Gerakan Wilayah Persekutuan, di sini, semalam.

Ditanya tindakan atau denda yang mungkin dikenakan terhadap menteri yang gagal mencapai KPI, Koh
berkata, perkara itu belum dibincangkan kerana tumpuan fasa kini untuk mempromosi, menggalak dan
menggerak bagi memastikan pengurusan prestasi ditingkatkan.

“Ia bukan fasa mendenda tetapi mendapatkan komited sepenuhnya. Tahap kedua berlangsung awal
tahun depan selepas penilaian November dan Disember.

“Selepas pelaksanaan setahun dua, baru kita nampak hasil dan kalau tidak atau kurang berhasil, kita
akan mencari puncanya sebelum mengambil tindakan.

“Kabinet di bawah kepimpinan Perdana Menteri ikhlas dan serius memastikan pengurusan prestasi
yang adil, saksama, cekap serta berkesan kepada rakyat,” katanya.

Oleh Shamsul Kamal

IPOH: Bajet negara pada masa akan datang bermula dengan Bajet 2010, tidak lagi melihat kemampuan
membelanjakan peruntukan kewangan ditetapkan sebagai berprestasi baik, sebaliknya melihat
bagaimana perbelanjaan negara mampu memberi impak terhadap kesejahteraan rakyat.

Menteri Kewangan II, Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah, berkata kementerian itu meletakkan
penanda aras lebih tinggi dengan menilai bagaimana peruntukan serta projek yang dilaksanakan dapat
memberi kepuasan kepada rakyat dan bukan bagaimana serta berapa cepat perbelanjaan dilakukan.

“Bajet masa lalu kita hanya bercakap perbelanjaan dan berapa banyak peruntukan diberikan atau
dibelanja berpandukan asas output.

“Sebagai contoh kementerian diperuntukkan RM1 bilion dan jika berjaya membelanjakan
keseluruhannya (sebelum bajet akan datang), ia dianggap baik.

“Sekarang, kita mahu melihat lebih daripada itu, kesan daripada perbelanjaan itu sama ada boleh
mencipta impak atau tidak," katanya selepas lawatan kerja di Jalan Kampung Ramasamy Hospital
Bahagia Ulu Kinta di Tanjung Rambutan, di sini, semalam.

Ahmad Husni yang juga Ahli Parlimen Tambun berkata, kementerian itu lebih menumpukan asas
prestasi iaitu konsep nilai daripada wang dibelanjakan yang dikaitkan dengan rakyat keseluruhannya.
Beliau berkata, kementerian itu perlu menggunakan pendekatan baru dalam menggerakkan ekonomi.

Sehubungan itu, katanya, dua cabaran utama perlu ditangani iaitu mengukuhkan kedudukan ekonomi
dan meletakkan Malaysia ke tahap tinggi iaitu beralih daripada berpendapatan sederhana ke
berpendapatan tinggi.

Justeru, katanya, kementerian itu harus mengetahui pendekatan mana masih boleh teruskan dan
apakah pendekatan baru yang harus diguna pakai.

Beliau percaya jika ekonomi global pulih lebih awal, Malaysia mampu pulih lebih cepat daripada
kebanyakan negara kerana asas kewangan masih kukuh serta kepelbagaian ekonomi.

KUALA LUMPUR: Seramai 1,600 pesara tentera yang hilang upaya akibat cedera ketika bertugas
terutama pada 1970-an dan 1980-an bakal mendapat ‘durian runtuh’ selepas kerajaan dilaporkan
bersetuju membayar ex-gratia kepada golongan itu tidak lama lagi.

Ketua Pengarah Jabatan Hal Ehwal Veteran Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (ATM), Mej Jen Datuk
Zulkiflee Mazlan, berkata pembayaran ex-gratia itu akan dibuat secara sekali gus atau secara bulanan,
mengikut peratus kecacatan atau tahap hilang upaya akibat kecederaan ketika bertugas berdasarkan
penilaian Lembaga Perubatan ATM.

“Kajian dasar pemberian faedah ex-gratia bagi tentera yang hilang upaya akibat bencana kerja ketika
bertugas kini pada peringkat akhir di Perbendaharaan.

“Keputusan kajian itu dijangka diumumkan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak,” katanya ketika
dihubungi, semalam.

Difahamkan, pengumuman itu akan dibuat pada 31 Julai ini bersempena sambutan Hari Pahlawan.

Kelmarin, Panglima Tentera Darat, Tan Sri Jeneral Muhammad Ismail Jamaluddin, berkata pesara
tentera yang mengalami kecacatan kekal ketika berkhidmat dengan ATM akan mendapat ganjaran dan
elaun bulanan hilang upaya tidak lama lagi.

September tahun lalu, Najib ketika menjawat jawatan Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan Menteri
Pertahanan mengumumkan satu skim faedah baru termasuk pembayaran ex-gratia kepada anggota
tentera yang mengalami kecederaan akibat bencana kerja berkuat kuasa 1 Januari 2001.

Sebelum ini, ex-gratia Bencana Kerja bagi Perkhidmatan Awam yang berkuat kuasa 1 Januari 2001
hanya diperuntukkan kepada pegawai perkhidmatan awam dan tidak diberikan kepada anggota atau
pesara tentera.

Bagi perkhidmatan ATM, faedah hilang upaya dan kematian hanya disediakan mengikut Peraturan-
peraturan Angkatan Tetap (Pencen, Ganjaran dan Faedah-Faedah Lain) 1982.
Tajuk Artikel: KDN pinda akta hapus kekebalan wakil rakyat
Sumber / Tarikh: Berita Harian Online 06 Julai 2009 – Isnin

KOTA BHARU: Kementerian Dalam Negeri (KDN) akan meminda undang-undang sedia ada bagi
menghapuskan kekebalan yang dimiliki wakil rakyat pada persidangan Dewan Rakyat dan Dewan
Undangan Negeri (DUN) bagi mengelak mereka sesuka hati mengeluarkan kenyataan berbaur hasutan.

Menterinya, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, berkata kekebalan Ahli Dewan seharusnya mempunyai
batasan dan mereka tidak boleh berselindung di sebalik kelebihan itu untuk memecah belahkan
masyarakat serta mencetuskan rasa kurang senang pelbagai pihak demi kepentingan politik.

Merujuk kenyataan Pengerusi DAP Johor, Dr Boo Cheng Hau, yang sekali lagi menyamakan
pentadbiran kerajaan dengan dasar apartied selepas kali pertama menyatakannya pada sidang DUN
Johor, Hishammuddin berkata, perbuatan itu amat tidak bertanggungjawab.

"Kekebalan (Ahli Dewan) pun ada had dan batasannya. Kalau kekebalan itu merosakkan sistem
demokrasi yang mengizinkan dia (Dr Boo) meluahkan apa saja dan menghuru-harakan negara...kita
perlu pinda kekebalan dan undang-undang sedia ada.

"Demokrasi tidak diletakkan di situ untuk mereka yang berniat jahat dan membuat perkara yang tidak
ada makna langsung kepada usaha kerajaan nak membina negara dan bangsa," katanya kepada
pemberita selepas membuat lawatan ke Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen (IPK) Kelantan, di sini, semalam.

Semalam, akhbar melaporkan, Dr Boo dalam Majlis Pidato Batu Pahat, mendakwa ada perbezaan
antara Bumiputera dan bukan Bumiputera menyebabkan wujudnya amalan apartied dalam pentadbiran
negara ini.

Awal tahun ini, Dr Boo yang juga Ketua Pembangkang DUN Johor, pada sidang DUN berkenaan
menyifatkan amalan `Bumiputeraisme' sama dengan dasar aparteid yang pernah dilaksanakan kerajaan
kulit putih Afrika Selatan.

Hishammuddin berkata, pihak berkuasa sedang mengkaji secara serius untuk mengambil tindakan
tegas terhadap Dr Boo kerana ia adalah kali kedua beliau membuat kenyataan sedemikian.

"Itu kenyataan cukup jahat, kalau ia menghasut dan jelas bercanggah dengan undang-undang serta
membabitkan keselamatan orang ramai dan menidakkan Perlembagaan, kalau dia tak berhenti, saya
sendiri akan ambil tindakan tegas.

"Dia juga tak boleh berselindung di belakang sidang DUN untuk mengeluarkan kenyataan begitu, saya
sendiri pun tak boleh letakkan diri melebihi undang-undang, apatah lagi dia menimbulkan isu yang
cukup sensitif khususnya kepada orang Johor," katanya.

Beliau berkata, pihaknya kini sedang meneliti untuk mengambil tindakan tegas menerusi undang-
undang sedia ada dan tidak semestinya melalui Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA).

“Pembangkang kini sengaja mencetuskan pelbagai isu yang sensitif dengan harapan kerajaan akan
mengambil tindakan mengikut ISA yang kemudian akan mereka gunakan sebagai modal politik.

"Saya sudah teliti cara mereka berpolitik yang sanggup menggadaikan segala-galanya untuk
kepentingan politik, mereka ingat kita akan menggunakan undang-undang biasa (ISA)...tak
semestinya," katanya.

SIBU, 5 Julai (Bernama) -- Penerimaan konsep 1Malaysia oleh semua warga Malaysia tanpa mengira
kaum, dapat menjadikan negara ini lebih dihormati dan disanjungi oleh lebih banyak negara di dunia,
kata Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Perdana Menteri berkata hasil daripada hubungan antara Malaysia dan negara berkenaan
kemudiannya dapat digunakan bagi menjalin hubungan ekonomi yang lebih kukuh lagi.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika melancarkan Festival Kebudayaan Kebangsaan Cina kali ke-26 di
medan bandar di sini yang dihadiri oleh kira-kira 40,000 orang.

Antara kenamaan yang turut hadir termasuk Ketua Menteri Sarawak Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud,
Presiden Persekutuan Persatuan-persatuan Cina Malaysia Tan Sri Lim Gait Tong, rakan sejawatannya
di Sarawak Datuk Lau Cheng Kiong dan anggota Kabinet kerajaan persekutuan serta negeri.

Najib berkata disebabkan 1Malaysia, China khususnya menjadi semakin akrab dengan Malaysia.

"Sememangnyalah kita mempunyai hubungan sejarah yang bermula sejak 500 tahun lepas dengan
ketibaan Laksamana Cheng Ho ke negara ini. Ramai kaum Cina turut menjadikan Malaysia sebagai
tanah air mereka dan menerusi kerja keras serta keusahawanan, mereka memberi sumbangan yang
amat besar kepada kejayaannya sekarang," kata beliau.

Najib berkata beliau difahamkan China kini bersedia dengan sejumlah dana yang besar untuk melabur
di Malaysia.
"Saya akan mengumumkan perkembangan yang sangat bererti ini dari semasa ke semasa," katanya.

Perdana Menteri berkata jika ekonomi negara berada dalam kedudukan yang baik, masyarakat sendiri
akan memperoleh manfaatnya.

"Sebab itulah kerajaan Barisan Nasional (BN) tidak akan bermain politik. Kami tidak akan bercakap atau
menjanjikan kepada rakyat apa yang kami tidak dapat tunaikan. Kami lebih suka rakyat menilai
menerusi tindakan kami," katanya.

Sementara itu, Najib yang dibawa terus ke pasar malam di sini sebaik sahaja tiba di Lapangan Terbang
Sibu, berkata beliau amat kagum dengan apa yang disaksikannya di sana.

"Kehadiran 1Malaysia sudah pun mula dirasai di Sibu. Di pasar malam itu saya dapat melihat 174
peniaga Cina dan Melayu bersama-sama berniaga di satu tempat," katanya.

Perdana Menteri berkata mereka juga menjual makanan yang cara membuatnya dipelajari daripada
satu sama lain.

"Interaksi budaya ini melambangkan 1Malaysia iaitu satu konsep yang berasaskan penerimaan,"
katanya.

Mengenai Sibu, beliau memberi jaminan bahawa kerajaan persekutuan akan terus menyalurkan
bantuan ke arah pembangunannya.

"Kerajaan telah pun meluluskan RM150 juta untuk pembesaran Lapangan Terbang Sibu yang akan
bermula tidak lama lagi. Kami juga akan menyediakan dana bagi program tebatan banjir dan
perumahan," katanya.

Sementara itu, Taib dalam ucapannya, merakamkan penghargaan kepada Najib yang telah pun
melakukan empat lawatan ke Sarawak dalam masa sebulan.

"Kami sangat berbesar hati dengan perhatian yang diberikan kepada Sarawak yang menjadikan kami
semakin hampir dengan Semenanjung Malaysia," katanya.

Beliau berkata aspek budaya sangat penting memandangkan ia dapat menyemai semangat muhibbah
dalam kalangan penduduk negara ini yang terdiri daripada pelbagai kaum.

"Apabila semangat muhibbah disemarakkan, ia dapat membantu mempercepatkan penerimaan konsep
1Malaysia," katanya.

Lim, yang turut menyampaikan ucapan pada majlis itu, berkata sejak mengambil alih jawatan Perdana
Menteri, Najib telah memperkenalkan banyak langkah dan usaha yang membina bagi memulihkan
ekonomi negara serta meningkatkan tahap pendidikan.

"Ini bukan sahaja memenuhi permintaan daripada globalisasi tetapi turut menarik kedatangan pelabur
ke negara ini selain menjadikannya lebih berdaya saing di arena antarabangsa," katanya.

Najib, katanya turut memperkenalkan perubahan kepada dasar sedia ada bagi menjadikan masyarakat
Malaysia lebih berdaya saing namun masih bekerjasama antara satu sama lain.

"Kami percaya masyarakat akan menuai hasilnya dalam tahun-tahun mendatang," katanya.--

undang-undang berhubung perusahaan burung walet berikutan langkah kerajaan Terengganu untuk
membantu pengusaha ternakan itu secara besar-besaran tidak lama lagi.

Pengarah JPV negeri Dr Azizol Mohd Sharum berkata draf undang-undang itu dijangka siap selewat-

"Kita perlu mengadakan undang-undang burung walet bagi memudahkan kerajaan mengawal selia
industri ini yang sedang berkembang pesat di negeri ini," katanya di sini Ahad.

Sebelum ini, Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani negeri Rozi Mamat berkata
kerajaan Terengganu telah memberikan tanggungjawab kepada JPV untuk mengendalikan industri
burung walet di negeri itu.

Mengulas lanjut, Dr Azizol berkata selain menyediakan draf undang-undang tersebut, JPV juga
merancang memberikan pengetahuan kepada para petugasnya kerana industri burung walet
merupakan satu perkara baru kepada agen i berkenaan.

Katanya JPV menyasarkan industri sarang burung walet di kalangan bumiputera di Terengganu akan
meningkat kepada 10 peratus menjelang 2015 berbanding tiga peratus sekarang.

Beliau berkata pihaknya mengenal pasti beberapa daerah di Terengganu beropetensi untuk
mengusahakan ternakan itu termasuk di Hulu Terengganu, Besut, Setiu dan Kuala Terengganu.

Daripada kajian yang dijalankan, katanya kebanyakan burung walet dari Indonesia berhijrah ke
Terengganu setelah berlaku kebakaran hutan di negara berkenaan.

Dr Azizol berkata nilai industri burung walet di dunia sekarang mencecah RM60 bilion dan Malaysia
menduduki tempat ketiga dalam industri itu selepas Indonesia dan Thailand.-- BERNAMA

melihat kepada kemampuan membelanjakan semua peruntukan kewangan yang ditetapkan sebagai
berprestasi baik, sebaliknya menumpukan perhatian mengenai perbelanjaan negara yang mampu
memberi impak terhadap kesejahteraan rakyat.

Menteri Kewangan II, Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah berkata kementerian berkenaan kini
menetapkan penanda aras yang lebih tinggi dengan menilai mengenai cara peruntukan diberikan serta
projek yang dilaksanakan yang dapat memberi kepuasan kepada rakyat dan bukan berhubung tempoh
perbelanjaan itu dapat dilakukan.

Beliau berkata bajet-bajet sebelum ini hanya memberi perhatian kepada perbelanjaan dan jumlah
peruntukan yang dibelanjakan atau diberikan yang hanya berpandukan asas 'output'.

"Sebagai contoh, (sebelum ini) satu kementerian diperuntukkan RM1 bilion dan jika kementerian itu
berjaya membelanjakan keseluruhannya (sebelum bajet akan datang), ia dianggap sebagai
kementerian yang baik.

"Sekarang, kita mahu melihat lebih daripada itu, ia bukan berapa banyak dibelanjakan tetapi kesan
daripada perbelanjaan itu, sama ada ia boleh mencipta impak atau tidak (terhadap kepuasan rakyat),"
katanya kepada pemberita selepas melawat jalan Kampung Ramasamy Hospital Bahagia di Tanjung
Rambutan di sini Ahad.

Beliau berkata dengan pendekatan itu, ia bermakna kementerian berkenaan lebih menumpukan kepada
asas prestasi iaitu konsep nilai daripada wang yang dibelanjakan yang dikaitkan dengan rakyat secara
keseluruhannya.

Ahmad Husni juga berkata, kementerian itu perlu menggunakan pendekatan baru dalam menggerakkan
ekonomi yang menghadapi dua cabaran utama yang perlu ditangani iaitu mengukuhkan kedudukan
ekonomi pada masa sekarang serta meletakkan Malaysia ke tahap yang tinggi dengan beralih dari
negara berpendapatan sederhana ke tahap yang lebih tinggi.

"Oleh itu, dalam penilaian berhubung cabaran itu, kita perlu mengetahui pendekatan mana yang masih
boleh terus digunakan dan apakah pendekatan baru yang bolah digunapakai pada masa sekarang,"
katanya.

Beliau juga yakin sekiranya ekonomi global kembali pulih lebih awal dari jangkaan, Malaysia juga
mampu keluar dari kemelut itu lebih cepat daripada kebanyakan negara lain di dunia.

Ini kerana, negara mempunyai asas kewangan yang kukuh serta struktur kepelbagaian ekonomi
berbanding negara yang hanya bergantung kepada sektor ekonomi tertentu sahaja.

"Kita juga ada pakej rangsangan ekonomi dan saya percaya dalam suku tahun ketiga nanti, kita akan
dapat merasakan impak sepenuhnya pakej berkenaan," katanya.-- BERNAMA

KUALA LUMPUR, 5 Julai (Bernama) -- Kerajaan kini dalam fasa untuk mempromosi dam
menggalakkan Indeks Petunjuk Prestasi (KPI) agar setiap menteri komited sepenuhnya bagi
memastikan pengurusan prestasi di kementerian masing-masing dapat ditingkatkan, kata Menteri di
Jabatan Perdana Menteri Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon.

Pencapaian terhadap KPI itu akan dinilai selepas dilaksanakan dalam tempoh setahun atau dua tahun
dan jika kurang pencapaian, kerajaan akan mencari punca-puncanya sebelum mengambil apa-apa
tindakan, katanya kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan Fiesta Satu Hati anjuran Wanita Gerakan

menteri dalam pemukiman itu dan menganggap KPI sebagai satu transformasi dan revolusi terhadap
perkhidmatan kerajaan.
Beliau berkata Najib juga akan mengumumkan mengenai beberapa inisiatif yang akan dilaksanakan
berhubung dengan KPI memandangkan setiap kementerian mempunyai bidang keutamaan yang
berlainan.

"Ada kementerian yang lebih cepat untuk dinilai dan ada kementerian yang sukar untuk dinilai kerana
bidang berbeza. Kami akan cuba mengenalpasti bidang utama bagi menetapkan KPI dan Perdana
menteri akan mengumumkannya tidak lama lagi," katanya.

Koh berkata Najib juga mengingatkan supaya setiap menteri meningkatkan prestasi bagi memberikan
perkhidmatan yang cekap dan efisyen kepada rakyat.

Menjawab soalan lain, beliau berkata kerajaan sedang memperinci bentuk tindakan terhadap

status keputusan ujian makmal itu.

“Keputusan ujian selalunya akan diketahui dalam masa 24 jam selepas sampel throat swab diambil,”
katanya.

Menurutnya, pelajar Malaysia dan mereka yang baru kembali bercuti dari luar negara yang terjejas
dengan wabak berkenaan, diminta membuat pemantauan kendiri.

Bagi mereka yang mula rasa kurang sihat atau ada tanda awal jangkitan seperti batuk dan demam,
diminta segera mendapatkan rawatan daripada doktor berdekatan dan mengurangkan pergaulan
dengan rakan lain termasuk mengelakkan diri daripada menghadiri kelas dan bekerja di pejabat.

Mengenai situasi semasa Influenza A (H1N1) dalam negara, Dr Mohd Ismail berkata sehingga jam 8
pagi semalam, ada 33 kes baru dilaporkan terdiri 21 kes import dan 12 kes jangkitan tempatan.

AMPANG JAYA: Seramai 100 penduduk Ampang Jaya hadir pada sesi dialog yang dianjurkan Majlis
Perbandaran Ampang Jaya (MPAJ) bersama Jawatankuasa Tetap Kerajaan Tempatan, Kajian dan
Penyelidikan negeri Selangor bagi mendekati serta mengetahui masalah penduduk setempat, di sini,
semalam.

Yang Dipertua MPAJ, Datuk Mohammad Yacob, berkata sesi dialog itu yang pertama dianjurkan
pihaknya bertujuan menemui serta mengetahui secara terus masalah yang dihadapi penduduk di
kawasan Ampang Jaya.

“MPAJ sudah 12 tahun ditubuhkan dan dalam tempoh berkenaan, kawasan ini sudah mengecapi
pelbagai nikmat pembangunan walaupun penubuhannya tidak terancang sebelum ini.
“Ditambah dengan jumlah penduduk yang sudah mencapai 600,000 orang, sudah pasti pelbagai
masalah timbul, namun cuba diselesaikan dengan memberi perkhidmatan yang terbaik untuk
kesejahteraan seluruh penduduk,” katanya pada sesi dialog berkenaan, di sini, semalam.

Hadir sama, Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Tetap Kerajaan Tempatan, Kajian dan Penyelidikan negeri,
Ronnie Liu serta wakil agensi kerajaan.

Menurut Mohammad, ada 220 taman perumahan di kawasan berkenaan yang perlu ditadbir bagi
menjadikan Ampang Jaya bandar makmur, maju serta moden berlandaskan perancangan teliti serta
pengurusan yang cekap.

Sementara itu, wakil penduduk Bandar Baru Ampang, Ridhuan Tee Abdullah, meminta pihak MPAJ
mengkaji beberapa kawasan tanah yang sesuai untuk dibina serta memperbesarkan sekolah berikutan
di kawasan itu hanya ada sebuah sekolah bagi menampung jumlah pelajar yang semakin bertambah.

“Cadangan untuk menambah baik keadaan serta persekitaran sekolah perlu diteliti kerana sekolah
memerlukan suasana yang kondusif serta selesa untuk menimba ilmu,” katanya.

Oleh Rosmaliana Aida Mohd Adnan

KUALA LUMPUR: Keputusan berhubung pembangunan semula Plaza Rakyat bersebelahan Hentian
Puduraya yang tergendala lebih sedekad lalu akan diketahui Ogos ini.

Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan, Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin, berkata pada masa kini
persetujuan sudah dicapai dengan Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL), kontraktor yang dilantik
perlu mengikut syarat serta peraturan ditetapkan.

Katanya, pihaknya kini hanya menunggu persetujuan kerajaan iaitu Unit Perancang Ekonomi (EPU)
bagi membolehkan kerja pembinaan dijalankan mengikut jadual.

“Bagaimanapun, kontraktor berkenaan perlu mematuhi syarat serta peraturan yang ditetapkan pihak
berkuasa dan jika mereka enggan melaksanakannya, kami tidak akan teragak-agak mencari khidmat
syarikat lain untuk melakukannya.

 “Pada masa sama, masyarakat juga perlu memahami proses undang-undang yang mengambil masa
lama untuk dilakukan tetapi mengikut persetujuan ditetapkan ia tidak mungkin akan melebihi tarikh
ditetapkan (Ogos ini),” katanya.

Terdahulu, beliau melawat tapak pasar malam Jalan Telawi, Bangsar, di sini, serta mengagihkan risalah
pencegahan virus selesema babi (H1N1) dan topeng muka kepada 325 peniaga sekitar kawasan
berkenaan.

Sementara itu, Raja Nong Chik berkata, belum terlambat untuk melakukan proses pencegahan
manakala kebanyakan pesakit yang dikesan dan dikuarantin kini adalah mereka yang dijangkiti selepas
berada di negara mengalami penularan wabak berkenaan.

“Kami memilih kawasan pasar malam ini sebagai tempat pertama disebabkan tempat ini bukan hanya
dikunjungi penduduk sekitar tetapi juga orang luar dan pelancong asing.
“Malah, peniaga adalah golongan sasar paling penting kerana mereka terdedah dengan makanan yang
dijual kepada pengunjung dan pastinya faktor kebersihan perlu dititikberatkan untuk mengelak sebarang
kejadian tidak diingini,” katanya.

“Memanglah akta itu dianggap tidak lagi sesuai dengan keadaan semasa kerana ia dibuat antara 1948
dan 1952.

 “Contohnya tindakan ke atas kesalahan Ahli Parlimen dikenakan denda maksimum RM1,000 yang
dibuat pada 1952, sesuailah pada masa itu dengan nilai sebanyak itu,” katanya kepada pemberita pada

GOMBAK: Gabungan Persatuan Pengguna Malaysia (Fomca) bekerjasama dengan Pasar Raya Giant
dalam melaksanakan promosi terakhir Kempen Konsumer Kebangsaan (3K) melalui pertandingan
mewarna dalam usaha menggalakkan rakyat Malaysia lebih bertanggungjawab dalam kehidupan
mereka.

Ketua Pegawai Operasi Kempen Konsumer Kebangsaan, Siti Rahayu Zakaria, berkata sejak tiga tahun
lalu, Giant banyak menyokong usaha dilakukan Fomca dalam memberi kesedaran kepada masyarakat
mengenai kepentingan menjadi pengguna berhemah.

Menurutnya, usaha itu boleh dilihat melalui pertambahan cawangan Giant yang mengikuti program
kepenggunaan ini.

“Tahun lalu hanya 16 cawangan saja yang menyertai tapi kini meningkat kepada 18 cawangan dan ini
menunjukkan mereka tidak ketinggalan membantu memberi kesedaran kepada masyarakat.

 “Diharapkan lebih ramai pihak memberi sokongan kepada kempen ini pada masa akan datang kerana
selain berguna ia dapat memberikan perlindungan kepada pengguna,” katanya ketika ditemui selepas
majlis penyampaian hadiah kepada pemenang pertandingan mewarna di Giant Batu Caves, di sini,
semalam.
Di samping itu, beliau berkata, Fomca mengadakan pelbagai kempen serta pertandingan
kepenggunaan dalam meningkatkan kesedaran pengguna mengenai hak, tabiat dan gaya hidup
berjimat cermat antaranya pertandingan melukis poster, mengarang esei, melukis kartun, debat
kepenggunaan dan pertandingan mewarna.

Malah, Fomca tidak ketinggalan mengadakan ceramah di 38 sekolah di seluruh negeri di samping
mengadakan aktiviti merancang perbelanjaan, kuiz, pameran dan permainan kepenggunaan.

Majlis penyampaian hadiah pertandingan berkenaan diadakan pada 1 Ogos depan di Dewan
Serbaguna, Kompleks Sukan Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), Bangsar dan hadiah wang tunai menanti
pemenang bertuah.

“Kebanyakan program tertumpu kepada golongan kanak-kanak kerana proses ini perlu dipupuk sedari
kecil agar ia menjadi amalan dalam kehidupan seharian,” katanya.

Tajuk Artikel: Tempoh ambil alih dewan dipertikai
Sumber / Tarikh: Sinar Harian Online 06 Julai 2009 – Isnin

BANDAR BARU SELAYANG – Pengambilalihan dewan di tanah lapang milik Majlis Perbandaran Sela
yang (MPS) dekat sini yang mengambil masa lebih tujuh bulan sehingga kini menimbulkan pertikaian.

Ahli Majlis MPS, Kuan Perk Siong berkata, dewan di Taman Selayang Segar Zon 2 sebagai contoh,
telah dituntut MCA Bahagian Selayang kerana mendakwa parti berkenaan mendapat kelulusan untuk
terus menggunakan dewan di situ

“Sedangkan kelulusan berkenaan sudah sampai tarikh luput. Saya rasa kita patut teruskan pengambil
alihan dewan tersebut. Namun, sekarang ia mengambil masa terlalu lama.

“Sepatutnya MPS bagi tempoh masa kepada mereka supaya kita boleh ambil alih dewan itu untuk
kegunaan semua,” kata Perk Siong, semasa mesyuarat penuh di MPS.

Sementara itu, seorang lagi Ahli Majlis MPS, M Murugeshu berkata, melalui surat diterimanya bertarikh
10 Jun lalu, pihak Pejabat Tanah dan Daerah Gombak menyatakan dewan dalam zonnya itu adalah di
dalam rizab jalan.

“Malah saya juga difahamkan, parti politik berkenaan tiada sebarang pegangan untuk mendakwa
mereka masih berhak ke atas dewan di Taman Selayang Segar itu.

“Jadi, apakah tindakan MPS terhadap dewan berkenaan termasuk 17 gerai berhampiran yang juga
tiada Sijil Layak Menduduki (TOL). Saya berasa amat malu apabila penduduk mempersoalkan perkara
ini,” katanya.

Sebelum ini, beliau sudah mengambil alih dewan berkenaan yang dikenali sebagai Dewan MCA untuk
dijadikan pusat khidmat masyarakatnya selaku ahli majlis, namun kembali dituntut MCA Bahagian
Selayang yang mendapatkan khidmat undang-undang bagi menghalang tindakan tersebut.
Sementara itu, Yang Dipertua MPS, Datuk Zainal Abidin Azim ketika menjawab pertikaian itu berkata,
ketiadaan penarikan surat kebenaran membangunkan pernah dikeluarkan Pejabat Tanah Gombak
menyebabkan dewan tersebut masih belum boleh diambil alih.

“Memandangkan lokasi dalam kawasan lapang, kita harap pihak pejabat tanah menarik semua
kelulusan telah diberikan, sebelum kita ambil alih dewan.

“Bagaimanapun, kita suka berunding dahulu (dengan parti terbabit) supaya proses mengambil alih ini
berjalan lancar tanpa perlu ke mahkamah. Tapak yang tiada kelulusan dari pejabat tanah, kita tiada
masalah,” katanya.

Dalam pada itu, menurutnya isu dewan ambil alih dewan tertangguh ini hanya melibatkan tiga kawasan
iaitu di Taman Selayang Segar, Rawang Jaya dan Indah Perdana.

Difahamkan, dewan sukar diambil alih sebelum ini disebabkan pihak Pejabat Tanah Gombak masih
memperbaharui TOL dewan dikelolakan parti politik terdahulu, walaupun di bawah pentadbiran kerajaan
negeri baru.

Memberikan pendapat mengenai perkara tersebut, Orang Besar Daerah Gombak, Datuk Paduka Raja
Datuk Wan Mahmood Pa’ Wan Teh mencadangkan supaya MPS memohon semua TOL di tanah
lapang dari pejabat tanah.

Katanya, tindakan ini supaya semua bangunan didirikan MPS di tanah tersebut tidak lagi menjadi isu
berkenaan TOL yang dimohon parti politik tertentu sehingga berlaku kesulitan seperti sekarang.

SERI KEMBANGAN – Seorang lelaki tidak menyangka dia sekeluarga nyaris menjadi mangsa samun
apabila motosikal ditunggangi bersama isteri dan anak perempuannya dikejar dua penyamun jalanan di
Taman Perindustrian Bukit Serdang menghala ke Pangsapuri Megaria di sini.

Mangsa, Yap Yoke Yin, 46 berkata, dalam kejadian kira-kira jam 6.30 pagi itu, dia dalam perjalanan
menghantar anaknya ke Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Seri Kembangan.

Menurutnya, ketika melalui jalan berkenaan dia tiba-tiba merasa sesuatu tidak kena apabila sebuah
motosikal seolah-olah mengekorinya dari belakang.

“Isteri yang duduk membonceng menjerit mengatakan ada motosikal yang mengekori di bahagian
belakang dengan lagak mencurigakan.

“Pada mulanya, saya tidak mengendahkan kerana menyangka lelaki berkenaan adalah pengguna jalan
raya yang biasa menggunakan laluan itu menghala ke Seri Kembangan,” katanya ketika ditemui Sinar
Harian.

Beliau berkata, bagaimanapun dia mula berasa cemas apabila ada sebuah lagi motosikal ditunggangi
seorang lelaki berusia lingkungan 20-an cuba merapati motosikal yang ditungganginya.

“Sebaik mendapati lelaki berkenaan seolah-olah berniat jahat, saya kemudian memecut laju motosikal
kerana takut menjadi mangsa jenayah.

“Tekaan saya tepat, apabila kedua-dua lelaki yang menaiki motosikal berlainan mengarahkan berhenti
kami di tepi jalan,” katanya yang terus memecut laju tanpa menghiraukan arahan kedua-dua
penjenayah terbabit.

Katanya, dia yang sering terbaca berita-berita jenayah di dada akhbar kemudian nekad menyelamatkan
diri sendiri, isteri serta anak perempuannya kerana bimbang dicederakan.

“Salah seorang penjenayah itu mengeluarkan pisau sambil mengacukannya berkali-kali ke arah kami
serta menyuruh memberhentikan motosikal.
“Anak dan isteri yang membonceng di belakang sempat mengelak namun usaha suspek terbabit tidak
terhenti di situ sahaja,” katanya yang mendakwa salah seorang suspek menendang motosikalnya.

Kata Yoke Yin, suspek berkenaan terus mengarahkannya berhenti namun jeritan berkenaan tidak
diendahkannya.

“Suspek memberitahu dia hanya mahukan wang kami dan mengatakan akan melepaskan sekiranya
memperoleh apa yang dimahukannya.

“Isteri saya ketika itu sempat menjerit kepada suspek mengatakan kami tidak mempunyai wang
sebelum saya terus membelok masuk ke pintu sebuah pangsapuri yang mempunyai pengawal
keselamatan untuk menyelamatkan diri,” katanya yang mendakwa dikejar suspek hampir 300 meter.

Detik-detik cemas berkenaan difahamkan turut dialami seorang lagi mangsa yang mendakwa dikejar
dua penyamun bermotosikal di kawasan sama beberapa minggu lalu.

Isteri mangsa, Chong Yoo Thai, 47 ketika ditemui Sinar Harian berkata, dalam kejadian kira-kira jam 6
pagi itu, suaminya mendakwa dikejar beberapa lelaki bermotosikal di kawasan itu.

“Suami saya bernasib baik kerana terus memecut motosikal sebaik merasakan dirinya bakal menjadi
mangsa jenayah.

“Keadaan jalan yang gelap selain tidak ramai pengguna melalui jalan berkenaan pada waktu pagi
menyebabkan kumpulan penjenayah menjadikan laluan itu sebagai lokasi mereka mencari mangsa,”
katanya ketika membuat aduan kepada Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Seri Kembangan, Ean
Yong Hian Wah.

Sehubungan itu, katanya beliau menggesa polis mempergiatkan rondaan supaya kegiatan jenayah
seperti itu tidak berulang di kawasan itu, kelak.

BANTING - Menteri Besar, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim tidak menggalakkan pihak berkuasa tempatan
(PBT) memberi lesen baru mewujudkan pusat judi dan rumah urut di kawasan yang sudah mempunyai
premis berkenaan.

Sebaliknya, beliau mahu PBT membuat pemantauan rapi kedua premis ini sekiranya terlalu banyak
diwujudkan di kawasan berkenaan dan segera mengambil tindakan sekiranya tidak memenuhi syarat
yang telah ditetapkan.

“Kerajaan Selangor berharap pemantauan lebih kerap oleh PBT dilakukan supaya aktiviti ini tidak
mengganggu masyarakat setempat sekali gus mendatangkan masalah kepada rakyat.

“Bagaimanapun, PBT perlu bijak mengenal pasti sekiranya ada premis yang diwujudkan dengan
sewenang-wenangnya dan tidak memenuhi syarat yang betul,” katanya selepas merasmikan
Kejohanan Futsal Terbuka Piala Menteri Besar Selangor di Gelanggang Futsal Pusat Latihan
Penguatkuasa Selangor (Pulapes), di Jugra, semalam.

Abdul Khalid berkata, kajian terperinci akan dilakukan untuk meletakkan berapakah jumlah pusat judi
dan rumah urut di sesebuah kawasan kerana kedua-duanya masih mempunyai kepentingannya.
Menurutnya, sebagai contoh di sesebuah kawasan hanya boleh menempatkan dua premis sahaja dan
perlu dihadkan mengikut kepadatan penduduk di sesebuah kawasan.

Dalam pada itu, beliau enggan mengulas jumlah premis berkenaan dan menggesa setiap PBT
meningkatkan pemantauan dari masa ke semasa berkaitan kewujudan pusat judi dan rumah urut di
setiap kawasan PBT.

                                                                   bangkang, Datuk Seri Dr

Sementara itu, sebanyak 83 pasukan futsal yang terdiri daripada 54 pasukan lelaki dan 28 pasukan
wanita yang terlah menyertai Kejohanan Futsal merebut Piala MB Selangor.

Abdul Khalid berkata, beliau gembira apabila setiap PBT di negeri ini memberi sokongan terhadap
aktiviti ini sebagai salah satu cara mewujudkan semangat kerjasama dalam masyarakat.

Menurutnya, kerajaan negeri memberi sokongan terhadap usaha-usaha yang dijalankan oleh Pulapes
buat kali kedua menjayakan piala ini sekali gus memberi peluang kepada belia belia untuk mencungkil
bakat mereka dalam sukan futsal ini.
