Rakyat terpaksa menanggung bebanan sehingga hari ini berikutan kegagalan Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (SYABAS) dalam mengendalikan pengurusan air meskipun lebih RM400 juta telah diterima dari kerajaan Pusat.

Ahli Parlimen Pandan, Rafizi Ramli berkata, ketidakcekapan Syabas jelas diperlihat apabila masalah catuan air terus berlaku dan kerajaan perlu mengambil langkah progresif dalam menangani isu tersebut.

DAP hari ini menawarkan khidmat ‘kursus tadika’ kepada MCA yang tidak henti-henti mempersoalkan pendirian DAP dalam isu Hudud.

“Hudud adalah bertentangan dengan Perlembagaan dan ia juga bukan sebahagian daripada agenda mahupun dasar bersama Pakatan Rakyat (PR). Pendirian kita jelas dan tetap sama bagi semua pemimpin dan Ahli Parlimen DAP.

The appointment of Muhammad Shafee Abdullah to act for the Registrar of Societies (ROS) in the civil application filed by the DAP against the ROS, clearly, reflects the Attorney-General, Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail, has abdicated his functions, particularly so in the wake of the recent appointment of Muhammad Shafee Abdullah to act in the criminal appeal involving Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim recently in the Court of Appeal.

These appointments do not speak well of the Attorney-General’s Chambers. Is the Attorney-General Chambers so devoid of personnel of caliber to attend to prosecutions and civil proceedings in courts? Must the tax-payer, in addition to be responsible for the salaries and other benefits for those employed in the Attorney-General’s Chambers, also make provision for payment to Muhammad Shafee Abdullah for his services as an advocate and solicitor to the Attorney-General’s Chambers. What is the need for the duplication of these monetary benefits at the expense of the tax-payer?.

Ships and planes pursued Saturday the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 off Australia after Prime Minister Tony Abbott said he was “very confident” that signals from the black box had been detected.

The Australian-led search for the Boeing 777, which disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, is racing to gather as many signals as possible to determine an exact resting place before a submersible is sent down to find wreckage.

The Joint Agency coordination Centre (JACC) said Saturday that the remote search area where the plane was believed to have gone down some was still shrinking.
