The DAP Central Executive Committee(CEC) at its meeting last night made the following decisions(e/c)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 14.6.2014.

The DAP Central Executive Committee(CEC) at its meeting last night made the following decisions:-

A. Instruct all DAP Wanita And DAP Socialist Youth(DAPSY) State Committees To Lodge Police Reports Against Inspector General Of Police(IGP).

The DAP CEC instructs all DAP Wanita and DAPSY state committees to lodge police reports against the IGP for being in contempt of the Federal Constitution and gross failure to perform his statutory role by refusing to enforce and comply with civil court orders on child custody cases. A template of the report will be provided by DAP National Legal Bureau chief and Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo and DAP National Vice-Chair and Ipoh Barat MP M. Kulasegaran. Kula is also the lawyer for M Indira Gandhi and had successfully obtained an Ipoh High Court order granting custody of her daughter following a legal tussle with her Muslim convert ex-husband.

The refusal of the IGP to comply with civil court orders is clearly a breach of statutory duty that has exposed Khalid Abu Bakar as completely unfit for such a high an important position because he has forgotten one of the police duties under Section 20 of the Police Act 1967 is to execute any orders of summons, subpoenas, warrants, etc, legally issued by the courts. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s suggestion of referring such child custody cases to the Federal Court fails to address, correct and punish such open contempt of courts and defiance of the IGP’s statutory duty.

Gobind Singh Deo will kick off the filing of the nation-wide series of police reports by DAP tomorrow in Kuala Lumpur.

B. A Special Committee Comprising Of Professor P Ramasamy, Gobind Singh Deo, M. Kulasegaran and Senator Ariffin S.M. Omar On Police Custodial Deaths.
The DAP CEC is gravely concerned about the failure of the Home Affairs Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, the police and the IGP to prevent police custodial deaths. The latest police custodial death in Penang, seventh this year, brings the number of police custodial deaths nationally for the first 6 months of 2014 to ten nationwide.

By blaming the police custodial deaths on the health of the victim is not only an abdication of responsibility but also indicates that custodial deaths will only persist, continuing this inhuman cruelty and sorrow to many helpless families. A Special Committee comprising of Penang Deputy Chief Minister 2 Professor P Ramasamy, Gobind Singh Deo, M. Kulasegaran and Senator Ariffin S.M. Omar on Police Custodial Deaths will help to collect information, assist the victim’s family and include filing civil suits against the police.

C. UMNO and BN Should Stop Playing Political Games With Hudud To Win Muslim Support But Instead Respect The Sanctity Of The Secular Nature Of The Federal Constitution.
DAP fully endorses Selangor state assembly speaker Hannah Yeoh for allowing a motion by UMNO Sungai Air Tawar assemblyperson Kamarol Zaki Abdul Malik on hudud to study whether it is ready to be implemented in Selangor. Hannah has demonstrated that despite her publicly stated opposition to hudud, she is performing her constitutional role as an impartial, neutral and democratic Speaker for all including the Opposition, by allowing freedom of expression at the highest legislative body in Selangor.

UMNO surprisingly withdrew the motion yesterday without any reason given and Hannah is correct to view the filing and withdrawal of UMNO’s hudud motion as a blatant political stunt. UMNO and BN should stop playing political games with hudud to win Muslim support but instead respect the sanctity of the secular nature of the Federal Constitution.

By filing the hudud motion, UMNO has shown that they are the real instigators of implementing hudud laws in Malaysia. Further UMNO has also exposed MCA’s double-faced politics of “opposing hudud outside but keeping quiet inside” when UMNO disclosed that MCA President Liow Tiong Lai did not object when informed about this impending hudud motion.

DAP is consistent in our principle of opposing the implementation of hudud laws in Malaysia because it is unconstitutional. Whilst we respect Islam and the position of hudud in Islam, implementation of hudud laws is against the Federal Constitution and not suitable in a plural society like Malaysia.

===================Mandarin Version =============================

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英於2014年6月14日在吉隆坡发表声明:

民主行动党中央执行为委员会经昨晚的会议后,做出以下议决:

A:指示民主行动党各州妇女组及社青团,对全国总警长藐视宪法与失职一事报警处理。

民主行动党中央执行委员会指示全体妇女组及社青团州委,针对全国总警长藐视宪法以及失职一事报警处理,因为总警长在最近的孩童抚养权争议上,拒绝履行民事法庭的谕令。行动党法律局主任兼蒲种区国会议员哥宾星以及行动党全国副主席古拉,将会向各地发放报警书范本。古拉也是英迪拉的辩护律师,他们经赢得怡保高庭发出的庭令,将女儿的抚养权从改信伊斯兰的丈夫手中取回。

总警长拒绝遵从庭令,已明显渎职。卡立阿布峇卡忘却1967年警察法令第20条款下赋予警察的职责,即履行法庭发出的各项庭令,传诏令等等,他显然已不再适任此等高职。首相拿督斯里纳吉建议将有关抚养权争议移交联邦法院定夺,这並不能解决且惩处公开违抗法庭的全国总警长。

行动党各相关组织在报警后,将陆续於明日把报案书统一交予哥宾星在吉隆坡处理。

B:针对扣留犯於警局毙命一事,成立一个由拉玛沙米教授、哥宾星、古拉以及阿里芬上议员组成的特别委员会。

民主行动党中委会高度关注内政部长阿末扎希及总警长无法停止扣留犯屡屡在警察管辖范围内毙命的事件。最新的一件发生在槟城,也是今年州内的第七宗,更是全国首六个月来的第十宗。

把问题归咎於扣留犯的个人健康问题,无疑是在推卸责任,若不正面以待,如此残酷的事情只会周而复始的上演,让更多无助的家庭徒然悲哀。因此,行动党将成立一个由槟州副首长拉玛沙米教授、哥宾星、古拉及阿里芬上议员组成的特别委员会,协助家属收集资料,包括透过法律途径起诉警方。

C:巫统与国阵必须立马停止把伊斯兰刑事法当政治游戏操弄,以赚取穆斯林的支持。他们应当尊重我国世俗宪法的神圣本质。

行动党支持雪州议长杨巧双,批准巫统双溪侨华区州议员卡玛鲁查基的动议,在议会殿堂内探讨於雪州落实伊法的可行性。杨议长本身虽然反对落实伊法,但作为地位超然的议长,她展现了民主、中立的风范,让反对党在立法议会上,也有充分的意见表达权。

巫统昨日在没有给予任何理由的情况下,突然撤回动议,而杨议长亦做出正确回应,同意把这巫统的政治把戏从议程中撤回。巫统与国阵必须立马停止把伊法当政治游戏操弄,以赚取穆斯林的支持。他们应当尊重我国世俗宪法的神圣本质。

从巫统提呈伊法的举止来看,足以证明他们就是要在国内推行落实伊法的始作俑者。同时间,巫统表明廖中莱没有反对他们的动议时,也把马华“双面人政治”揭开,即在外反对伊法,在里面却保持沉默。

民主行动党持续坚守立场,即我们尊重伊斯兰教,以及伊法在伊斯兰教里的地位。但,我们反对在马来西亚内强行落实伊法,因为,这种做法是违宪的,且不适合用于我国多元社会群体之上。

林冠英
