MTUC: Kerajaan khianati pekerja miskin

MTUC: Kerajaan khianati pekerja miskin


Kongres Kesatuan Sekerja Malaysia (MTUC) mendakwa kerajaan Pakatan Harapan (HARAPAN) mengkhianati golongan berpendapatan rendah atau mereka yang berada dalam kumpulan B40.

Ketua Setiausahanya, J Solomon yang sebelum Pilihan Raya Umum lalu mendesak 14 juta pekerja menyokong HARAPAN, kini mendakwa gabungan itu tidak sensitif dan tidak peduli terhadap penderitaan golongan B40.

"Hak asasi manusia yang asas bagi warga B40 terang-terang dilanggar walaupun memiliki kerajaan baru," tegasnya dalam kenyataan media yang keras.

Salomon mengulas pengumuman Putrajaya semalam bahawa gaji minimum akan diseragamkan pada RM1,050 sebulan, atau bersamaan RM5.05 sejam berkuatkuasa 1 Januari 2019.

"Peningkatan sebanyak RM50 daripada RM1,000.00 adalah jumlah yang kecil kepada buruh manakala kenaikan RM130 bagi Sabah dan Sarawak masih berada di bawah garis kemiskinan iaitu RM1,180 di Sabah.

"Selepas penangguhan selama 18 bulan dalam semakan pertama dan satu lagi penangguhan selama enam bulan dalam semakan kedua yang bersamaan 24 bulan menunjukkan sikap tidak mengendahkan pekerja miskin dengan kenaikan gaji minimum ini," katanya.

Menurutnya, golongan pekerja pada PRU lalu mengundi Pakatan Harapan (HARAPAN) dengan harapan gabungan itu dapat membela nasib mereka.

Tambahnya, golongan itu juga tidak mampu hidup selesa dengan upah yang rendah dan kos sara hidup yang tinggi.

Bagaimanapun katanya pemansuhan Cukai Barangan dan Perkhidmatan (GST) pelaksanaan semula Cukai Jualan dan Perkhidmatan (SST) tidak berjaya menurunkan harga barang yang akan terus menyebabkan beban kepada kumpulan B40.

"Bagi MTUC, kerajaan HARAPAN telah mengecewakan pekerja miskin sementara sikap sombong dan tidak mempedulikan tenaga kerja yang ditunjukkan oleh kerajaan terdahulu kini nampaknya muncul kembali oleh tindakan kerajaan baru.

"MTUC ingin mengingatkan bahawa adalah bodoh yang amat bagi mana-mana kerajaan untuk menunjukkan rasa tidak hormat kepada tenaga kerja dan membiarkan golongan buruh dimanipulasi.

"Pekerja akan bersatu untuk melawan sesiapa sahaja yang melemahkan maruah pekerja," tegasnya.

#TangkapTommy!

#TangkapTommy!

#TANGKAPTOMMY

Hakikat bahawa Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) mengeluarkan kenyataan media semalam bahawa SPRM terkejut dengan keputusan Jabatan Peguam Negara menarik balik pendakwaan terhadap Lim Guan Eng, menunjukkan bahawa SPRM sebenarnya masih percaya terdapat suatu kes yang kukuh terhadap Lim Guan Eng atas tuduhan rasuah. SPRM yang menjalankan siasatan, sudah tentu SPRM lebih tahu.

Justeru, kini, SPRM sepatutnya menangkap Tommy Thomas dan menyiasat sama ada terdapat sebarang elemen salah guna kuasa oleh Tommy selaku Peguam Negara yang dilantik oleh pentadbiran Kerajaan PH.

Di bawah Akta Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia 2009 (Akta 694), pihak SPRM sememangnya diberikan kuasa untuk menangkap dan menyiasat. Tak mengira siapa, walaupun Peguam Negara, jika melakukan sesuatu kesalahan, maka dia tidak boleh diberi sebarang pengecualian daripada dihadapkan ke muka pengadilan dan proses undang-undang.

Seksyen 23 Akta SPRM menjadikan satu jenayah untuk “mana-mana pegawai badan awam ... menggunakan jawatan atau kedudukannya untuk apa-apa suapan....”

Manakala seksyen 3 Akta SPRM pula mentakrifkan “suapan” untuk termasuk “apa-apa jenis perkhidmatan atau pertolongan lain, termasuk perlindungan daripada ... apa-apa tindakan sivil atau jenayah, sama ada atau tidak sudah dimulakan....”

Justeru, sudah jelas sekali tindakan Jabatan Peguam Negara perlu disiasat di bawah seksyen-seksyen ini.

Israel announces Gaza sanctions in response to cross-border blazes

Israel announces Gaza sanctions in response to cross-border blazes

JERUSALEM: Israel imposed sanctions on the Gaza Strip and its dominant Hamas movement on Monday in retaliation for attacks by Palestinians using burning kites and helium balloons carrying blazing rags.
People taking part in more than three months of protests at the Gaza border have started scores of fires by sending the balloons and kites into Israel, vexing its advanced military which is used to dealing with more conventional weapons.
With southern residents and his far-right coalition partners calling for an end to the blazes, even if that required killing the kite- and balloon-fliers, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin announced the closure of Gaza’s main commercial border terminal.
Israel also cut the area fishing boats are allowed to operate off Gaza’s Mediterranean coast and blacklisted what it described as a pro-Hamas TV channel.
“We will crack down immediately on the Hamas regime in the Gaza Strip,” Netanyahu told his parliamentary faction, to applause from lawmakers.
Wildfires have razed 7,000 acres of forests and farmland, Israel says.
The kites and balloons are the most effective weapon in the so-called “Great March of Return” protests that began on March 30 and which have met an often lethal Israeli army response. Gaza medics say 136 Palestinians have been shot dead.
Organizers say the Gaza demonstrations aim to press demands such as for a right to lands lost to Israel in the 1948 war of its foundation and for an Israeli-Egyptian blockade to ease.
Israel deems the protests a bid by Hamas to deflect scrutiny from Gaza’s governance problems and provide cover for armed border attacks.
Hamas decried Monday’s measures as “a new Israeli crime against humanity.”
“Hamas urges the international community to immediately intervene,” said Fawzi Barhoum, spokesman for Hamas, which is deemed a terrorist group by Israel and the West.
The shuttered Kerem Shalom crossing is Gaza’s main conduit for trade — albeit under years of Israeli restrictions. Israel said some humanitarian goods would still be allowed through the terminal.
An Israeli military statement said the Palestinian fishing zone off Gaza would revert to 11 km (6 miles) after being temporarily expanded to 17 km (9 miles).
Al-Quds, a Palestinian satellite TV station, was declared a terrorist organization by Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who called it a “Hamas propaganda arm.” That put the station’s staff — including 15 in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and a freelancer in Jerusalem — at risk of arrest by Israel.
Lieberman said Israel did not seek a new Gaza flare-up.
“But the way Hamas is conducting itself — it is simply liable to spiral out of control, and it is liable to pay the whole price, a much, much heavier price” than in the last Gaza war, in 2014, he told reporters.
UN: 1 in 4 children live in country of conflict or disaster

UN: 1 in 4 children live in country of conflict or disaster

UNITED NATIONS: A quarter of the world’s children — about 535 million — are living in a country affected by conflict or disaster, the head of the UN children’s agency said Monday.
Henrietta Fore told a Security Council meeting on children and armed conflict that it is “almost beyond comprehension” that one of every four young people are caught in that situation.
She pointed to children and young people whose lives are being shattered by conflicts, including in Yemen, Mali and South Sudan. She also cited youngsters recruited to fight, killed by a land mine or an attack on their school, and “losing hope not only in their futures, but in the futures of their countries.”
Sweden, which holds the Security Council presidency this month, organized the open meeting on the theme “Protecting Children Today Prevents Conflict Tomorrow” and sponsored a resolution unanimously adopted by the 15 members to strengthen UN actions to ensure the care and safety of youngsters.
“We are not doing nearly enough to protect our children,” Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, who presided at the meeting, said, stressing that “350 million children are affected by armed conflict today.”
The resolution states for the first time that children recruited or caught up in armed conflict should be treated primarily as victims, he said.
It urges all countries “to consider non-judicial measures as alternatives to prosecution and detention that focus on the rehabilitation and reintegration for children formerly associated with armed forces and armed groups.”
Lofven said the resolution also for the first time makes the point that the needs and vulnerabilities of girls and boys are different and stresses that access for all youngsters to education and physical and mental health care is essential.
It also sets out a framework to reintegrate children associated with armed groups or armed forces into society, which “places children as part of the solution, not part of the problem,” he said.
US Ambassador Nikki Haley told the council that “more than 60 percent of people in conflict-affected countries are under the age of 25.” In countries like Afghanistan, an entire generation has never lived in peace, she said.
She stressed the importance of education as “a way to recover from conflict and prevent it in the future,” warning that children who grow up uneducated, unskilled and resentful “will be prime targets for recruitment by extremists and armed groups.”
Virginia Gamba, the UN special representative for children and armed conflict, said she is “profoundly shocked” by the more than 21,000 violations of children’s rights in 2017 recently reported by the UN, a significant increase from 2016.
“The majority of these despicable acts were perpetrated by armed groups although government forces and unknown armed actors played an important part,” she said. “Each and every one of them led to unspeakable suffering for children, families and entire communities.”
Gamba said the level and severity of the latest violations demonstrate the need for united action “to change the tide of history,” including by focusing on prevention and reintegration “to break cycles of violence” against children.

PUTRAJAYA, 6 Julai — Riza Aziz, anak tiri bekas Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak tiba di ibu pejabat Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) di sini hari ini bagi memberi keterangan buat kali keempat berhubung siasatan 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

Pada Selasa, Ketua Pesuruhjaya SPRM Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull mengesahkan suruhanjaya itu hanya mengambil keterangan Riza dan tiada keperluan untuk SPRM menahannya setakat ini. — Bernama
