Doktor kecam polis tembak gas ke hospital



Sekumpulan doktor kanan dan pakar perubatan telah mengeluarkan kenyataan membidas kerajaan berhubung 'serangan polis' ke atas peserta perhimpunan BERSIH 2.0 Sabtu lalu di dua buah hospital.

Sehubungan itu, dalam satu kenyataan media kepada organ rasmi PAS Harakahdaily hari ini, doktor berkenaan yang bertugas di Hospital Tung Shin dan Hospital Bersalin Cina di Jalan Pudu berkata mereka akan mengemukakan afidavit bagi menyokong hujah bahawa hospital diserang.

Mereka mendakwa tindakan polis pada Sabtu lalu jelas mencabul pengiktirafan antarabangsa apabila hospital sebagai tempat santuari diserang.

Malah menurut sebeles doktor berkenaan, semasa peperangan hospital juga tidak akan diserang tetapi dalam kes di Malaysia, polis memasuki bangunan hospital bagi mencari peserta yang melarikan diri daripada tembakan gas pemedih mata dan pancutan air berkimia.

"Apa yang paling menakutkan dan disaksikan ramai bahawa serangan yang tidak dihasut itu berlaku di kawasan hospital dan beberapa peserta masuk ke hospital bagi mencari perlindungan daripada tembakan gas pemedih mata dan pancutan meriam air,” kata mereka.

Ini adalah reaksi pertama oleh sekumpulan pakar perubatan berikutan penafian pihak polis dan kerajaan bahawa tidak ada gas pemedih mata dilontarkan ke perkarangan hospital pada 9 Julai lalu.

Isnin lalu, menteri kesihatan Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai berkata polis tidak menembak gas pemedih mata dan meriam air ke arah Hospital Tung Shin ketika menyuraikan perhimpunan BERSIH 2.0.

Katanya, dakwaan yang berlegar di media internet berhubung tembakan ke arah hospital itu adalah tidak benar.

Liow juga berkata sebenarnya polis menembak gas pemedih mata itu ke arah jalan besar dan asap berkenaan mungkin dibawa angin ke arah hospital berkenaan.

Beberapa rakaman video dan gambar yang dikemukakan terus diperlekehkan oleh kerajaan termasuk anggota jemaah menteri.

Menurut kesebelas-sebelas doktor berkenaan, pihak berkuasa tanpa rasa malu terus menafikan serangan itu di sebalik pelbagai bukti yang dikemukakan dan ramai saksi yang tampil membuat pengakuan.

Kenyataan media itu ditandatangani oleh Dr Musa Nordin, Dr Sheikh Johari Bux, Dr Ng Kwee Boon, Dr Ng Swee Choon, Dr Ronald Macoy, Dr David Quek, Dr Mary Cardozo, Dr Farouk Musa, Dr Mazeni Alwi, Dr Pixie Low dan Dr Steve Wong.

tear gas fire at tung shin hospital 090711 1"Adalah menjijikkan pihak berkuasa yang diamanahkan tanggungjawab kepolisian menjaga negara dan melindungi mereka yang lemah, tanpa rasa malu menafikan perbuatan mereka secara umum, di sebalik kejadian itu disokong banyak gambar, video dan pengakuan saksi termasuk pemerhati berkecuali,” kata mereka.

Doktor-doktor itu berkata mereka tidak berhasrat menyertai polemik selepas perhimpunan itu, tetapi sebahagian daripada mereka yang sedang bertugas ketika kejadian, bersedia memberi keterangan bersumpah, jika diperlukan bagi memberitahu apa yang sebenarnya berlaku.

No benefit in keeping Pempena afloat
In September last year, four directors of Pembangunan Perlancongan Nasional Sdn Bhd (Pempena) Datuk Yip Kum Fook (MCA GOMBAK, who is BAD name in Buddhist and he always went to China to find girls) Datuk Donald Lim Siang Chai, Syed Abdul Rahman and Jaigani Jaafar – were served with letters of demand for payment of more than RM12.4 million owed by the company.
The letters from lawyer Joginder Singh, who was acting for Kah Bintang Auto Sdn Bhd were sent by registered post. On receiving the letter, one of them, Lim, the former deputy toursim minister and current deputy finance minister, contacted the CEO of Pempena and asked him to act on the demand.
For a good eight months, nothing happened. No effort was made to contact the motor company or negotiate a settlement. Failing to get a response, Kah Bintang published notice of an intended winding up petition in two national newspapers on May 28. The petition was set to be heard on June 13.
At the hearing, the petition was undefended as neither Pempena nor its lawyers made an appearance. The court allowed the petition and asked that Pempena be given another 14 days to pay up. On June 27, that short lease of life for the company expired and Pempena ceased to exist.
Yesterday, akin to closing the stable door after the horses have bolted, Malaysian Tourism Board chairman Datuk Victor Wee announced that Pempena would be applying for a stay of the winding up order this week.
The decision, he said, was made after a meeting with the management of Pempena last Friday. A new solicitor will be appointed to apply for a stay and work out an amicable settlement.
He was responding to theSun’s front page report which said the High Court had ordered the company to be wound up after failing to pay RM12.4 million for the purchase of 120 units of Hyundai Sonata.
When asked if these actions and the subsequent embarrassment to the government could have been avoided if Pempena had complied or responded to letters from Kah Bintang and its lawyer, Wee declined to comment, saying: “This is something that only Pempena can answer.”
So, the questions are: “Why did the Pempena CEO ignore the letters, and the call from Lim who was then a director of the company? Was it incompetency or sheer arrogance or total defiance of a lawful directive? Why did Pempena not act after the notice was published?
More importantly, where is Pempena going to find RM13 million (including interests and costs) to pay the motor company? Why should it come from the tourism promotion budget when all fingers point to the directors, who by virtue of their positions should be held responsible for this fiasco?
There’s no benefit in keeping Pempena afloat as it has not contributed in anyway to enhance tourism and related products. In short, it has been bleeding financially and has become a burden to Tourism Malaysia.
The best option is to dispose the assets, settle the debts and close shop so that it does not lose more money. Throwing good money after bad does not make good business sense.
