Ambiga usah baling batu sembunyi tangan – TPM Zahid



BUKIT KAYU HITAM: Bekas Presiden Majlis Peguam Malaysia Datuk S. Ambiga Sreenavasan perlu berani bertanggungjawab terhadap tindakannya memberikan data dan maklumat yang mengaitkan pemimpin tertinggi Pas menerima wang daripada Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak kepada editor Sarawak Report, Clare Rewcastle-Brown.

Menurut Timbalan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Ambiga tidak boleh bersikap seperti ‘membaling batu sembunyi tangan’ dalam perkara berkenaan dengan cuba mengelakkan diri daripada ditemui pihak media.

“Seorang yang hanya berani apabila berada di belakang dan tidak berani apabila berada di hadapan jika beliau mahu mengelakkan diri daripada ditemui oleh wartawan sama ada di halaman rumah atau di pejabat.

“Ertinya beliau tidak ada keberanian jika beliau ada keberanian ertinya dengan bukti yang diberikan kepada Sarawak Report maka mereka harus menunjukkan bukti.

“Kenapa mesti berani menuduh tapi tanpa bukti oleh kerana pekara ini telah terdedah melalui sistem keadilan di United Kingdom dan beliau harus berani bertanggungjawab kepada semua data dan maklumat yang diberikan kepada Sarawak Report,” katanya pada sidang media selepas melakukan lawatan kerja dan mempengerusikan Mesyuarat Kedua Peringkat Tertinggi (HLC) mengenai Keselamatan dan Kawalan Sempadan Negara Kompleks Imigresen, Kastam, Kuarantin dan Keselamatan (ICQS) Bukit Kayu Hitam di sini hari ini.

Ahmad Zahid yang juga Menteri Dalam Negeri mengulas laporan portal The Malaysian Insight yang mendedahkan menerusi hujah balas dan pembelaan yang difailkan Rewcastle-Brown dengan mengatakan pernah bercakap dengan Ambiga pada Julai 2016 mengenai Perdana Menteri, 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) dan Pas.

Pembelaan itu difailkan Rewcastle-Brown dalam saman fitnah Presiden Pas Datuk Seri Hadi Awang di Mahkamah Tinggi London pada April lepas dengan membabitkan artikel yang mendakwa Pas menerima dana berjumlah RM90 juta sebagai habuan menyokong Barisan Nasional (BN).

Artikel Sarawak Report bertajuk ‘As Najib denies all over 1MDB let’s not forget his many other criminal connections’ disiarkan menerusi portal itu pada 6 Ogos 2016.

Ahmad Zahid sehubungan itu menyatakan simpatinya kepada Pas  yang mana parti berkenaan tidak boleh dianiaya dengan perkara yang tidak benar seumpama itu.

Astros Rohana Rozhan appointed as UUM adjunct professor



KUALA LUMPUR: Astro Malaysia Holdings Bhd Group CEO Datuk Rohana Rozhan has been appointed as Adjunct Professor at the School of Creative Industry Management & Performing Arts in Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), to share her vast experience and knowledge in the creative industry with the students.

Prof Rohana on Thursday received a letter of appointment from UUM vice chancellor Prof Datuk Seri Mohamed Mustafa Ishak in a ceremony held at the All Asia Broadcast Centre in Technology Park Malaysia, Bukit Jalil.

The ceremony was witnessed by over 40 personnel including UUM deans and students, Astro’s senior management team, scholars and employees who are currently pursuing their post-graduate degrees at the university.

Prof Mohamed Mustafa said UUM believed that Rohana’s accomplishments, knowledge and experience needed to be channeled towards the university’s creative industry programmes.

In her speech, Rohana commended UUM for investing in the School of Creative Industry Management and Performing Arts and noted that Malaysia has the most creative talent and the best chance to be a significant force in ASEAN’s media industry.

“I am extremely humbled by the opportunity to serve as Adjunct Professor of UUM and we look forward to more win-win collaborations with UUM, especially in our industry and for Malaysians to be a pipeline for a digitally savvy and creative talent force, fit-for-purpose to compete and create value in the new world order,” she said.

Speaking to Astro AWANI later, Rohana said is there was a good piece of advice she could tell the students, it would be to have the ability to dream and to continuously be curious.

“When you dream, you dream of something that doesn’t already exist. And it’s important to be curious every day, to have more questions every day than your ability to have answers. To continue to learn and listen.

“Humility is key. Don’t think that we know everything already but focus on the need to know more. And you need to drive yourself and have passion in what you do. Not every day is going to be an easy day but if you realise the reality that there is something bigger than yourself, it will make you get up every day, even on a bad day, and continue your fight,” she said.

Prof Rohana’s two-year tenure as adjunct professor from Oct 1 will end on Sept 30, 2019.

100 tahun diperlukan untuk hapus jurang jantina



KUALA LUMPUR: Jurang antara lelaki dan wanita semakin jauh, berdasarkan Laporan Jurang Gender Global 2017 (2017 Global Gender Gap) yang diterbitkan World Economic Forum (WEF) hari ini.

Data menunjukkan dunia memerlukan lebih kurang 100 tahun bagi menghapuskan jurang antara jantina di seluruh dunia berbanding hanya 83 tahun tahun lepas.

Dari segi jurang ekonomi dunia, ia hanya akan lenyap dalam tempoh 217 tahun, menurut laporan WEF yang menggariskan beberapa buah negara di dunia yang mencatat senarai ini..

Dengan pelbagai kajian yang mengaitkan kemajuan ekonomi dan keseimbangan pencapaian jantina, beberapa negara sudah pun melaksanakan inisiatif untuk mengatasi jurang jantina.

Namun, kemajuan ini dianggap masih perlahan.

Malaysia juga masih dianggap di belakang berbanding purata pencapaian dunia dalam kesamarataan jantina. Isu yang dihadapi golongan wanita di Malaysia tidak banyak berubah.

Walaubagaimana pun, isu yang dibangktkan menerusi laporan ini masih sama seperti laporan tahun lalu di mana wanita mencatatkan pencapaian luar biasa dalam bidang akademi tetapi jauh ketinggalan dalam hal-hal melibatkan penyertaan dan peluang ekonomi.

Wanita di Malaysia juga jauh ketinggalan dalam bidang politik berbanding purata dunia.

Ceritalah ASEAN – Nguyen Ba Thanh The man who transformed Danang


ON November 11, leaders from 21 nations – including US President Donald Trump (who fancies himself as a builder), Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping – will descend upon the city of Danang, Central Vietnam for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders Meeting.

The 21 leaders will land at Danang International Airport, cross the iconic Han River Bridge (the symbol of the coastal city), pass by the 37-storey Danang Administration Centre (the tallest building in the province) and reach the Intercontinental Resort where the summit will be held.

Danang’s astounding progress is the work of one remarkable man: the late Nguyen Ba Thanh – who served as Danang’s leader from 1997 to 2013 (he was also the city’s Communist party head).

And the numbers underline Nguyen’s successes. From 1997 to 2008, the city’s economy grew at an average of 11.26%, well above the national average of 7.06%. In 1997, its per capita income was VND4.69 million but by 2008 had more than quadrupled to VND23.62 million.

In the same period, households below the poverty line also dropped from 8.79% to less than 1%, so much so that Danang is now being promoted as a model city and a great triumph of Vietnamese ingenuity and dynamism.

Charming, determined and results-orientated, Nguyen, presided over much of this economic metamorphosis.

Hoang (all names have been changed), a 68-year-old trader living in the Khue My district of Danang had a personal brush with the leader. In 2001, his farm was marked for redevelopment and his family resettled. Nguyen personally came to his house to persuade the residents to move.

“He explained why we had to move, why our land, which was next to the river, was important for the development of the city. He was friendly, kind, and he made sure to speak to all of the 100 residents, even if it was for a short while.

“He was eloquent, caring, and funny! After speaking to him, I was happy to move.

“During his time, the roads became bigger, the streets became cleaner and Danang became a city I am proud of.”

Hoang was part of a large group of farmers who were displaced to make way for riverside developments. While many of them lost their land, they were compensated and the state helped them find affordable housing.

Ngoc, now a banh mi (Vietnam’s distinctive baguette sandwich) hawker, is another one of these former farmers. According to her, Nguyen also visited her housing area to engage the community: “He was close to the people… He spoke like one of us, like a local.”

Nguyen was a Danang man, born in the city’s Hoa Vang district. By all accounts, he was a charismatic figure who was as comfortable in a village hall as he was in a hotel conference room.

“The King of Danang” as some called him, was popular with rich and poor alike.

Nguyen was a popular leader, regularly thronged by crowds wherever he went. Pix courtesy of PetroVietnam.

Pham, a 49-year-old businessman, is one of them. His parents came from Danang’s poverty-stricken inner city and were beneficiaries of Nguyen’s affordable housing plans.

“During Tet (the Vietnamese New Year), he would give out rice and provisions to the poor. He built affordable homes. He also established a homeless shelter in Danang. Look around! Compare this to Ho Chi Minh City. Do you see any beggars?”

“Nguyen Ba Thanh was special. I don’t think there has been a leader as well-loved as him since Uncle Ho (Ho Chi Minh).”

Danang’s rapid development was made possible by power. Nguyen (aka “The King”) was known to have an iron grip on Danang’s People’s Committee, ruling with a paternalistic, firm hand.

As Dinh, who has worked in Danang for the past 20 years noted: “He was strict with his civil servants – very involved with day-to-day affairs, he even chose the theme song for Danang.”

“It used to be that when you needed a building license for a house, you had to go to three or four different departments for permits. Nguyen Ba Thanh streamlined the process and now you not only just need to go to one department, they even give you a deadline for delivery. And they actually deliver on time!”

“Take for example the Danang Administration Centre. In the past, the different departments were located all over the city. It made internal coordination very difficult and applying for licenses a hassle. Now, all of them are in that tower.”

In 2000, Nguyen was investigated for graft over the construction of the Han River Bridge. Around the same time, he was also accused of violating legal procedures while conducting a relocation operation.

To Dinh however: “Both of those cases came to nothing. The people of Danang know that he was tough…But he delivered results. For most of us, that’s all that matters.”

“All over Vietnam, people knew him. People would say to me: ‘I wish my city had someone like Nguyen Ba Thanh’.”

In many ways Nguyen – a ground-up, transformational leader – has more in common with the Presidents of Indonesia and the Philippines, Joko Widodo and Rodrigo Duterte respectively. All three revived their home cities and eventually moved to the centre.

However, in the case of Nguyen the story wasn’t to end with him securing power at the national level.

Instead after leaving Danang in 2013 and becoming the Communist Party’s anti-corruption tsar, his star faded as did his health, succumbing to cancer in early 2015.

His untimely and tragic death at the age of 62 was mourned by millions, who had hoped that he would have been able to transform the rest of the country as he did Danang. But we – and Vietnam – shall never know if he had it in him.

“When he died, I cried,” lamented Hoang. “The last time I cried over a leader was when General Vo Nguyen Giap (a Vietnam War hero) passed.”

This week, as hundreds of sleek black Audis chauffeur world leaders to APEC, they will be traveling on the roads and bridges built by Nguyen, in the city that was his throne. The shadow of the “King of Danang” still looms large.
