—KENYATAAN MEDIA UNTUK EDARAN SEGERA—

KUALA LUMPUR, 27 NOVEMBER 2008

Kenyataan Timbalan Menteri Perdagangan Antarabangsa dan Industri Dato’ Liew Vui Keong di Parlimen semalam yang menafikan berlakunya pengaliran keluar pelaburan asing sebanyak RM 38 billion membuktikan sikap tidak bertanggungjawab kerajaan dan kedangkalan Timbalan Menteri tersebut akan kedudukan sebenar aliran pelaburan langsung asing di negara ini.

Kita bukan sahaja menghadapi fenomena aliran keluar pelaburan asing secara langsung(FDI) sebanyak RM38 bilion malah berhadapan dengan pelabur-pelabur tempatan yang mulai melabur di luar negara termasuk sektor pekilangan yang menutup atau mengecilkan operasi kilang-kilang mereka. Kita juga menyaksikan bagaimana pengeluaran pelaburan asing dari bursa saham negara menyebabkan kerajaan terpaksa menyuntik RM5 billion melalui Valuecap Bhd untuk menyelamatkan pasaran saham, dan sebagainya.

Seharusnya Timbalan Menteri berkenaan sedar akan peningkatan mendadak pembuangan kerja dan pemberhentian secara sukarela “VSS” di kilang-kilang dan perusahaan-perusahaan lain diseluruh negara akibat pengaliran keluar pelaburan langsung asing amat meruncing sekarang.

Timbalan Menteri juga perlu menginsafi fenomena aliran bersih pelaburan langsung asing yang negatif ini hanya dialami oleh Malaysia sedangkan negara-negara lain di rantau ASEAN mengalami peningkatan kemasukkan pelaburan langsung asing yang tinggi sehingga mencecah 80.9% berbanding tahun lepas.

Timbalan Menteri sewajarnya menarik balik kenyataan beliau dan saya sekali lagi menyeru agar satu sidang khas di parlimen ini bagi membahas isu yang sebegitu penting.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 26 – Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim appeared to stop short today of saying his Pakatan Rakyat (PR) alliance will have to wait until the next general election to make a serious bid for power.

He told reporters that he would not explain why the PR alliance has not yet taken power at this weekend’s PKR party congress.

“There is nothing to explain. It will happen,” Anwar said in Parliament. He did not set another deadline.

It is only appropriate that that tribute should have been penned by another splendidly dedicated doctor and fighter for the poor, Dr Jayakumar Devaraj, who is the brother of Rajen Devaraj, our ever-obliging officer at the Bar Secretariat.

Dr Rajakumar had been in University in Singapore with my elder brothers in the early 1950s as were people like Sydney Woodhull and James Puthucheary. It was very thrilling to hear about their tales of anti-colonial daring and about the University Socialist Club which played such a seminal role in nurturing the young Malayan patriots. And then the Colonial authorities took action and charged the entire editorial board of Fajar, the paper of the Socialist Club, with sedition. I think the “offending” editorial had welcomed the Viet Minh victory over the French at Dien Bien Phu and forecast the impending doom of Imperialism all over South East Asia.

KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Dewan Speaker Datuk Ronald Kiandee rejected Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s motion for Budget 2009 to be postponed temporarily to debate a United Nations report on Malaysia’s foreign direct investment (FDI) outflow.

The UN Conference on Trade and Development World Investment Report 2008 said that Malaysia’s FDI outflow had touched RM38bil compared with its RM29bil inflow, resulting in the country experiencing a net outflow of RM9bil, Anwar said.

Ronald said he received the motion based on Standing Order 18 (1) last Wednesday and it met only two out of three conditions.

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 24, 2008) : An urgent motion by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to debate the decreasing in-flow of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the Dewan Rakyat today was rejected by Deputy Speaker Datuk Ronald Kiandee as it was not an urgent matter.

Anwar moved the motion under Article 18(1) of the Standing Orders because he said Malaysia has suffered a negative net-flow of RM9 billion with RM38 billion outflow in FDI as reported in the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (Unctad) World Investment Report 2008.

Kiandee said the matter had been explained by Finance Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak during the winding-up at committee stage.

A motion by Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim to discuss the problem of negative foreign investment inflow into Malaysia was rejected by the deputy speaker Ronald Kiandee this morning.

“I am rejecting the motion to discuss, although it is specific and of public interest, it is not necessarily an immediate concern.

“Already during two different instances – the Trade Minister Muhyiddin Yassin on Oct 30 and the parliamentary committee on Nov 20 – have already dealt with this issue,” said Kiandee.

Anwar wanted the House to confront the issue in light of the unstable global economy.

The police today moved in to disperse a group of people who had gathered at a field in Ampang Jaya since 8pm for the launch of an anti-ISA campaign.

In the process, it is learnt that about seven people have been arrested for failing to disperse.

Police light strike force unit started dispersing the crowd – numbering less than 100 – at about 9.26pm just as PAS vice-president Mohammad Sabu started to address the crowd.

By about 10pm, the police managed to remove the people from the field, with the assistance of a heavy rain.

Only a handful of people, armed with umbrellas, remained behind by the edge of the field.

Semalam Malaysia kehilangan seorang lagi tokoh pejuang rakyat.

Mendiang Dr. MK Rajakumar, bekas pimpinan Parti Buruh dan Sosialis Front meninggal dunia jam 3 pagi Sabtu lepas kerana menghidap penyakit paru-paru berair. Mendiang dikenali sebagai pejuang rakyat, sebaris dengan Allahyarham Pak Sako, Ahmad Boestamam, V. David dan Dr. Tan Chee Koon.

Mendiang yang pernah ditahan di bawah akta zalim ISA pada era 60-an kekal teguh dengan tekad beliau menentang penindasan rakyat sehingga ke akhir hayatnya.

Saya dan Azizah berkesempatan untuk menziarahi keluarga mendiang di rumahnya jam 12.45 tengahari tadi. Kami mengucapkan takziah buat ahli keluarga mendiang.

Semoga perjuangan mendiang Dr. MK Rajakumar terus kekal dalam ingatan kita dan tidak disingsing dalam rentetan sejarah negara.
