Contractor fined RM10,000 for not registering with CIDB
- Monday, 13 May 2013
KUALA TERENGGANU: A building contractor was today ordered to pay a fine of RM10,000 or three months' jail in default for carrying out construction work without being registered with the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB).
The accused, Abdul Rahim Osman, 52, had earlier pleaded guilty before Sessions Court judge Wan Fadhilah Nor Wan Idris when the charge was read out to him.
According to the facts of the case, on last Nov 5, Abdul Rahim who was also the proprietor of RHM Services as a building contractor, had built the West Stand roof of the Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium, here, which collapsed on Feb 20.
However, the accused who had acted as a sub-contractor in the project, failed to register with CIDB. As a result, he was charged under Sub-Section of the CIDB Malaysia Act 1994 and punishable under Section 29 of the same act.
The accused pleaded for a minimum fine, claiming that he did not know that he had to register with CIDB and thought that only the main contractor must register with the board.
Rahim was not represented while CIDB prosecuting officer Abdul Razak Husin prosecuted in the case.
On Feb 20 this year, five construction workers were injured, three of them seriously, when the old frame of the Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium roof collapsed while under repair.
Repair works for the stadium had to be undertaken at a cost of RM15 million after its main roof costing RM292 million collapsed on June 2, 2009, destroying 50 per cent of the stadium structure.
Disciplinary action was taken by CIDB against the main contractor on April 11 for appointing a sub-contractor that was not registered with CIDB. -- BERNAMA
Terengganu to terminate services in lost constituencies
- Monday, 13 May 2013
The Terengganu state government does not intend to continue with the services of Parliamentary Constituency Development Officer (PPP) and State Constituency Development Officer (PPD) in areas won by the opposition on May 5.
Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said said the people in these parliamentary and state constituencies need to get assistance from the elected representatives they have chosen.
"We will consider other avenues, nonetheless there are no plans to continue with the services of PPP and PPD in the areas we lost.
"All this while, we (Terengganu Barisan Nasional) have taken over the duties of PAS elected representatives to resolve their everyday problems and this time we will let the people in the areas complain to their representative," he said.
Speaking to reporters after the swearing in ceremony of the Menteri Besar and members of the Terengganu State Executive Council at Istana Maziah today, Ahmad however said BN Terengganu will continue to implement the development agenda as promised in BN's state manifesto.
"Development will continue as promised, nonetheless construction of affordable houses will not be built in the state constituencies we lost, we will build in the areas won by BN," he said.
Among the supplementary manifesto made by Terengganu BN in the election was to attract more than RM25 billion of investment in the petrochemical, biotechnology and steel industries with more than 10,000 job opportunities, upgrade the Al-Quran Institute of Terengganu into a university and make Tasik Kenyir as an eco-tourism hub and tax-free zone.

From the eight parliamentary seats, BN won in Besut, Setiu, Kemaman and Hulu Terengganu while PAS won the Dungun, Kuala Nerus, Marang and Kuala Terengganu parliamentary seats. – Bernama
Thousands rally against Malaysia vote result
- Thursday, 09 May 2013
Tens of thousands of Malaysians, dressed in black, have gathered to denounce the country's elections which they claim were marred by fraud by the coalition that has ruled for 56 years.
Malaysia's opposition leader is leading demonstrations against alleged electoral fraud in Sunday's election.Anwar Ibrahim, head of the opposition Pakatan Rakyat, or People's Pact, called for support from people after he lost the race to become prime minister
The gathering of at least 50,000 people according to AP news agency was being held in a stadium outside the capital Kuala Lumpur, with protesters spilling out of the stands and onto the football field.
Anwar Ibrahim addressed the crowd, thanking them for their support.
He said he was grateful to the crowd for "showing the courage and conviction to change the course of history'' in Malaysia.
"This is the beginning of a battle between the people and an illegitimate, corrupt and arrogant government,'' Anwar told the cheering audience.
Al Jazeera's Florence Looi, reporting from Kuala Lumpur, said that people had turned up in black.
"They're wearing black to symbolise a black day for democracy. The day they said when the election results were stolen from the people," she said.
"I think they should redo the election," said university student Tan Han Hui. "I'm here to support democracy. I feel the election is so unfair and there are so many dirty tricks."
Meanwhile, the White House, on Wednesday, also called on Malaysia to investigate the claims and congratulated incumbant Prime Minister Najib Razak of the Barisan Nasional (National Front) coalition.
"We note concerns regarding reported irregularities in the conduct of the election, and believe it is important that Malaysian authorities address concerns that have been raised," said Jay Carney, the White House spokesman.
"We look forward to the outcome of their investigations."
Electoral fraud allegations
Anwar has called for a "fierce" campaign for electoral reform and said the opposition would soon produce evidence backing its claims that Prime Minister Najib Razak's government committed fraud.
Najib, who was sworn in on Monday after his Barisan Nasional, or National Front, coalition, insisted the polls were totally free and fair.
A joint report released on Wednesday by two independent election watchdogs disputed that claim, saying the elections were marred by bias and irregularities that added up to "serious flaws" in the electoral system.
The report by the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) and the Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS) cited continued questions over the integrity of the electoral roll.
The election was "only partially free and not fair," it said.
The vote was touted as the first in the country's history in which the opposition had a chance to unseat the ruling coalition, which has held a tight grip on power since independence in 1957.

Barisan retained a firm majority in parliament despite winning less than half of the popular vote, a factor partly blamed on self- serving gerrymandering and redistricting by Barisan over the years.
Anwar, who has battled the government ever since he was ousted from its top ranks in 1998 and jailed for six years on disputed sex charges, has said the election was stolen via "unprecedented electoral fraud".
Voters across the country complained over the ease with which the indelible ink was removed from their hands, while videos, pictures and first-hand accounts of purportedly foreign "voters" being confronted by angry citizens also went viral.
A Malaysian government spokesperson said that Wednesday's planned protest "is calculated to create unrest".
While previous election reform protests have ended with police using tear gas and water cannon. Police had earlier threatened to arrest participants in Wednesday night's rally.
But with tension high over the country's closest-ever election result, police backed off and a festive atmosphere prevailed as rally-goers waved opposition party flags and blared vuvuzela horns.
