Since the Kelantan State Assembly recently passed the Hudud law amendments, MCA and Gerakan leaders have been making aggressive and baseless attacks over the DAP’s stand , especially in the printed Chinese media.

Let me reiterate that DAP‘s stand on Hudud law is very consistent and clear. DAP has not lied or compromised on our stand. Hudud law is neither the consensus nor the common policy of Pakatan Rakyat. The DAP will never betray our founding principles.

The DAP does not therefore owe the people an apology as claimed by MCA and Gerakan. Instead , MCA and Gerakan are the two parties which must apologize to the people and quit BN for their inconsistent stand on Hudud law.

KUALA LUMPUR: Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, taking to Facebook, said that it was “crazy” to spend RM300 million on a new building for City Hall in Kuala Lumpur.

“This is crazy. Why do they need to spend so much money for a local council’s new building?” she asked in her posting. “Isn’t it better if the government uses the money to build more low-cost flats?”

City Hall staff are at the moment spread out among three buildings viz. Menara 1 and Menara 2, side by side along Jalan Raja Laut, and Menara 3, about 2km away along Jalan Raja Abdullah. Menara 2 would reportedly be demolished to make way for the RM300 million project.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar today hit back at his detractors saying police only go after opposition members and leaders because they are the only ones breaking the law.

He said this in response to the wide criticism that only opposition members were targeted by police compared with their BN counterparts.

“The problem is only their side (opposition) always create a ruckus and break the law.

“This is why it looks like we only take action against them,” he said at the parade ceremony in conjunction with the 208th Police Day at Police Training Centre (Pulapol) here today.

In his blog post, former minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim hit out at the state lawmakers who had voted to pass hudud in Kelantan last week. — Picture by Choo Choy May

KUALA LUMPUR, March 23 — Only the DAP or a new political party formed from Persatuan Ummah Sejahtera Malaysia (PasMa) can save Malaysia from falling headlong down the path of extremist religious “misrule”, former minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim said today.

A strident critic of hudud, the Kelantan-born politician urged “sensible Malays” who make up the majority of the country’s population to back the predominantly Chinese DAP or the critical pressure group within the Islamist PAS as the political alternative to reclaim their homeland.

This morning I joined my colleagues Lim Guan Eng, Tan Kok Wai, Lim Lip Eng etc to sign the condolence book for the founding father of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew at Singapore High Commission at Jalan Tun Razak.

Lee Kuan Yew was always a controversial leader. Some praise him sky high for his efforts and contribution to build a modern , developed , efficient and clean Singapore with low corruption, but for those who have been suppressed by his authoritarian leadership style in Singapore, they don’t have kind words for him till today.

LKY could build a successful Singapore because he was a far-sighted leader who emphasized on human talents, efficiency and good governance. There are a lot of things we can learn from him. There are a lot of write-ups and analyses about LKY; I don’t want to repeat what many people have commented.

Rest in Peace in the Lord, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. You have created history, and you will always be remembered in the history of Malaysia and Singapore.

INDUSTRI ASAS TANI menyatakan sebab berlakunya kekurangan bekalan ayam belanda semasa musim Krismas 2014 dan kenapakah hanya ayam belanda diimport, memandangkan kebanyakan pembeli adalah orang bukan Islam. Senaraikan syarikat pembekal yang dibenarkan mengeksport ayam belanda ke Malaysia pada tahun 2014 dan 2015.

JAWAPAN:

Tuan Yang di-Pertua

Untuk makluman Yang Berhormat, kekurangan bekalan ayam belanda pada musim Krismas 2014 berlaku adalah disebabkan oleh kekurangan sumber bekalan ayam belanda halal dari negara sumber. Keperluan HALAL disyaratkan di dalam pengimportan daging termasuk ayam belanda. Ianya tidak hanya dari sudut sembelihan, tetapi juga dari segi keselamatan makanan dan kebersihan di sepanjang rantaian pengimportan untuk pengguna dalam negara. Walaupun kebanyakan pembeliadalah terdiri dari pengguna bukan Islam, keperluan Halal turut disyaratkan bagi mengelakkan kekeliruan kepada pengguna Islam di Malaysia memandangkan ayam belanda ini turut diedarkan oleh pengimport di dalam negara ke pasaran-pasaran seperti hotel dan restoran.

Pengimportan dan kelulusan pengimportan ayam belanda adalah tertakluk kepada :

 

  1. Bilangan permohonan yang diterima oleh Jabatan Perkhidmatan Veterinar;
  2. Negara sumber yang dibenarkan yang bebas dari penyakit; dan
  3. Negara yang mempunyai loji pemprosesan ayam belanda yang diluluskan oleh kerajaan Malaysia

 

Pada tahun 2014, terdapat dua(2) loji pemprosesan ayam belanda iaitu di Brazil dan Amerika Syarikat (USA) masing-masingnya yang diluluskan untuk mengeksport ayam belanda ke Malaysia. Sementara itu, terdapat dua lagi loji pemprosesan ayam belanda di Australia dan Belgium telah digugurkan kebenaran status eksport kerana gagal mematuhi standard/piawaian halal negara. Pada tahun 2014 dan 2015, terdaat dua (2) syarikat yang dibenarkan mengeksport ayam belanda ke Malaysia iaitu Seara Alimentos LTDA dari Brazil dan Syarikat Turkey Valley Farm dari USA
