Sarawak civil service to carry on staff recruitment even with the current recession
Thursday March 5, 2009

KUCHING: The Sarawak state civil service will continue to recruit new staff based on the availability of vacancies despite the current recession, which saw the retrenchment of many workers, especially in the private sector.

Sarawak state secretary Datuk Amar Wilson Baya Dandot said on Monday, there were many positions for jobs in the civil service, which was a natural process of retirement and replenishment.

“The posts are always there. We are not talking about numbers because whether it is hard times or good times those posts are limited in number and there are many applicants.

On the hiring of contract workers, he said, it referred to a group of people whose services were needed within a certain period of time according to their stipulated job specification and urgency of services.

“However, those engaged by the public sector is unlike the contract workers in the state’s construction sites and the plantations, which did not have any job guarantee,” he said.

He said there were 25, 000 civil servants in the state administration, including those working in the statutory bodies, Government Linked Companies (GLCs) and local councils at present.

“Civil service in the state also included federal officers such as in the education, medical and police departments,” he said, adding that such civil servants accounted for 10 percent of the total workforce in Sarawak.

On another issue, Baya said he was happy with the machinery provided by the civil servants during the recent floods which hit major towns and cities throughout the state, with no major complaints lodged by the flood victims to the state’s Disaster Relief Committee.

“We have a machinery which is ever ready. If anything were to happen tomorrow, the machinery in the 11 divisions through the residents’ office supports the 30 district offices and sub-district offices,” he said, adding that there was always room for improvement, especially in terms of logistics.

“The most important matter is the fact that that there were no loss of lives in spite of incidences of landslides during the floods,” he said.—Bernama.

Urban poor get federal aid
Thursday April 30, 2009

A TOTAL 241 urban destitute and low income families in Penang who are registered under the Federal Government’s urban poor eradication scheme, have been distributed cash aid worth RM445,560.

State Development Department deputy director II Abdul Aziz Ashaari said 215 families in Seberang Prai received RM402,180, while 26 families on the island received RM43,380.

The department is a federal agency formed to coordinate federal aid and programmes in the state.

The Housing and Local Government Ministry, which registered the families through the government’s ‘e-Kasih’ initiative, channelled the aid through this department, he said after presenting the aid to the urban poor of Seberang Prai at the Seberang Jaya expo site recently.

Those on the island received their aid in an earlier event.

Abdul Aziz said the Federal Government had classified those with a monthly household income of below RM430 as destitute, while those earning below RM720 were considered low income families.

He said the selected families were given a one-time aid of between RM800 and RM6,000 each.

Most of them received aid for their house rent and allowances for their school-going children.

The aid was also meant for the registration fees for schools and institutions of higher learning, transportation for school-going children, transportation for single mothers who need to work, fees for babysitting, kidney dialysis treatment as well as aid to purchase groceries, he said.

Abdul Aziz said the hardcore poor and poor families were not confined to just rural areas, adding that there were many in urban areas as well.

Gov't Wants Civil Service To Be First Career Choice, Says Sidek
May 14, 2009 01:02 AM

KUALA LUMPUR, May 13 (Bernama) -- The government will offer job positions and salaries that are competitive to make the civil service the first choice for a career among job seekers, said Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan.

He said the government would soon introduce remuneration and employment schemes that would be attractive to job seekers based on their academic qualifications and work experience.

"As an example, if an applicant had 10 years experience in the private sector and is interested in joining the civil service, he will not have to begin from the bottom but will be put on a scale commensurate to his experience," he told reporters after participating in Radio Television Malaysia's "Dialog" programme at Angkasapuri here tonight.

At the same time, high performers already in the civil service would also be duly rewarded in terms or promotions and increase in pay irrespective of which grade they were in, he added.

COUNTER SERVICE... Malaysians can expect their passport application will be processed within two hours at the Immigration Department.
PUTRAJAYA, March 5 (Bernama) -- Skip the tedious paper work. Just submit your mykad and your application for a passport will be processed within two hours. It is as simple as that.

This is what the public can expect when dealing with the Immigration Department.

The department is scheduled to introduce the paperless concept in the middle of the year in an effort to promote a world class public delivery system.

"Just submit your mykad, as all data needed to process the application can be retrieved from the National Registration Department. We can do this via the biometric technology".

Immigration Department Director-General Datuk Wahid Md Don told Bernama this recently.

Wahid said, to be world class and the best among the Ministry of Home Affairs departments, the Immigration Department has shortened the time taken for its nine public transactions.

Among them are those for:

*Passport applications -- two hours now, from three days previously·

*Passport replacement -- two hours now from 24 hours previously·

*Application for housemaid -- 3 days from 7 days previously·

*Social visit pass -- 3 days from 30 days previously·

*Student pass -- 7 days from 14 days previously·

*Malaysia My Second Home -- 21 days from 30 days previously·

*Approval for Work Permit -- 7 days from 14 days previously·

*Issuance of Work Permit -- 3 days from 7 days previously.


Looking back, the time taken to process passport application has been greatly reduced. From three months in 1957, to one month in 1979. Then, it was down to two weeks in 1986, and shortened to one week in 1991.

Processing of passport applications were further expedited to only five days in 1995, three days in 2000, 24 hours in 2004 to only two hours since 2007.

"In terms of service delivery, we have speeded up the processing of passport application, and this in turn has resulted in many changes and development within the department," he said.

No Congestion

The shorter processing time has eliminated congestion at the counters.

Wahid said the use of kiosks, executive counters as well as that for senior citizens have contributed to the comfort of customers.

The kiosk, introduced early this year, has enabled the public to easily pay for their passport application as it functions like an ATM.

Hence the public can pay via the e-payment, cash and credit card.

To date, there are 13 such kiosks in the Klang Valley and Sabah. By the end of the year, 43 such kiosks will be available nationwide, at the cost of RM16 million.

"Between 300 and 500 clients are able to use the kiosks a day when it was introduced in the Federal Territory, reducing the queues at the counters," he said.

Use of the Internet to download application forms, which goes well with expatriates, has further reduced the queues at the immigration counters.

Nevertheless, congestion still happens during pre and post-holidays and festive seasons when clients rush to complete their transactions, he said.

Vision

Wahid said the department is the first agency in the world to use the microchip in its passports.

Introduced in 1998, the microchip stores biometric data like the fingerprint and applicants photograph.

The microchip has been upgraded to that of the second generation in 2006 and now it is being further enhanced to the third generation.

"More safety features will be incorporated into the Malaysian passport, and this will take some time.

"We are always looking for ways to provide a simple, fast and accurate service.

We now have chip-based passports that can be issued within two hours upon application.

"There is no other country in the world that can issue a passport faster than Malaysia. For example in developed countries like Australia, it is 10 days while in Singapore, three days," he highlighted.

Despite the fast issuance of passports, Malaysia is still able to maintain the documents safety features.

The Malaysian passport has 17 overall safety features as well as 27 fine safety elements.

This microchip-based document can be used for auto-gate exits like that available at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). The passport can also be used to check whether its holder is on the barred list.

"For example, if the court has suspended or detain a persons passport, then the person cannot leave the country. It is the same if there are requests from the Inland Revenue Department, EPF and PTPTN, we will assist," he said.

On the departments electronic application system (IDEAS), Wahid said it allows web searches for the public on matters like submitting new applications and extending the permit for foreign maids.

To use this facility, the clients (of registered agencies) can obtain their respective user ID and password from the Immigrations Department Foreign Workers and Housemaid Division.

Elimination of Disembarkation Card

In line with development of the Immigration Control System under the Malaysian Immigration System (SIM), the government has decided to abolish the use of the Disembarkation Card IMM.26 (white card) at all access/exit points in the country effective Nov 1, 2007.

Hence, foreigners coming into Malaysia now no longer need to fill up this form.

However at checkpoints that do not have the SIM facility, the requirement to fill up this card still exists.


This exemption is in line with the governments aspiration to provide paperless service apart from hastening the movement of tourists at the various entry points to the country, he said.

As of last Jan 24, there are 44 entry points to the country equipped with the SIM facility of which 12 are for air travel, nine (land) and 23 (sea).

Future Plans

Wahid said the department plans to set up another academy, in addition to the existing one at Port Dickson, to meet the needs in Sabah and Sarawak.

The Malaysian Immigration Academy at Port Dickson, which began operations in 2003, is able to train between 250 and 300 participants within three months to produce efficient, productive and IT-literate immigration personnel.

Wahid said the department also holds forensic training programmes for identification of forged and fake documents as well as passports with assistance from foreign experts.

He said the department collaborates closely with immigration authorities in Australia, Netherland, Britain, and United States and Asean countries.

He said the department also deploys its officers in exchange programmes held at the airports in Australia and Amsterdam, to create networking and enhance their skills to curb international crimes including human trafficking.

Secutity Application

Wahid said the Immigration Department is in the midst of finalising its single platform-based system, which has 13 applications.

Among them is the security application at airport, sea and land checkpoints, enabling the immigration officers to verify details of tourists on line.

So far 128 checkpoints have been gazetted for this purpose.

Meanwhile, the mobile system allows the i-kad identification of foreign workers status.

"If they have the i-kad, the immigration authorities can verify their status there and then, whether they are legal foreign workers or the otherwise. If they do not have (the card), then it is only sufficient if they can provide the passport number or the biometric can be used.

"Therefore a single platform enables us to deal and link up with other departments," he said.

For the departments slogan of Mesra, Amanah dan Tegas (Friendly, Honest and Firm) and Khidmat dengan Senyuman (Service With A Smile), Wahid said each of the agencys staff is encouraged to learn Mandarin and Arab for foreign tourists to feel respected and honoured when they arrive in this country.

The department also has plans to set up its branch offices to assist the expatriate investors, like in Kulim (Kedah) and Gua Musang (Kelantan) apart from a forensic laboratory to detect fake and forged immigration documents.

Malaysia was the first country in the world to issue biometric passports in March 1998, after a local company, IRIS Corporation, developed the technology. In December 2002, thumbprint data was added to the biometric data on the passport chip. Similar technology is used in the Malaysian identity card, MyKad.

The biometric data included on the Malaysian passport is a digital photograph of the bearer's face, and images of their two thumbprints. Malaysian immigration checkpoints were the only ones with the technology to read and authenticate the data from the RFID chip using a fingerprint scanner and facial recognition technology, but widespread adoption of ePassport technology around the world has seen the technology installed in international airports in the USA, the UK and other countries.

In addition to biometric data and the personal information stored on the information page, the chip also records the bearer's travel history of the last ten entry and exits at Malaysia border control points.

Concern about possible "cloning" of the data from the passport chip for the purposes of identity theft prompted IRIS to issue a press release in 2006, stating that the chip and data had never been successfully cloned, and that digital keys stored on each chip made such duplication and forgery impossible.

Our e-passport system is world’s best, Malaysia says
By Yusof Sulaiman

Malaysia contends it has in place the best electronic passport in the world.
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (eTN) - Ten years after Malaysia developed the technology and introduced an e-passport system that allows contactless operations of smart cards, the United States is still trying to get its own e-passport system right, according to a former special agent for the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) in the United States.

The embedded chip in an e-passport stores a photo of the holder, but not his fingerprints.

“Our inspectors told me the Malaysian e-passport is the finest and the best in the world,” said Neville Cramer, who was in charge of the Immigration and Naturalization Service under the US Department of Justice.

“To this day the INS has not utilized the technology fully, and it is mind-boggling,” Cramer said, adding, “The US should adopt Malaysian technology.”

Malaysia lost the opportunity of introducing it as a world standard in 2003 when the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) set new standards for passports, including the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) embedded microchips. Cramer believes it was partly due to the belief by US and European technology giants a small country like Malaysia cannot develop the technology. “They downplayed the technology developed by Malaysia.”

In fact, Malaysia is well ahead of the rest of the world. “Malaysia is not getting the credit for what they have accomplished," said Cramer.

According to a statement by developers of the technology, it is impossible to duplicate and forge digital keys stored on the chip. “Information encoded into Malaysian passports have so far remain secure.”

In a field test conducted by Cramer in Malaysia, the passport’s security features became evident when a man presented a passport which showed a woman’s face in the embedded chip’s digitized photograph. “The man confessed he bought the forged passport from a smuggler.”

The contactless smart card, which shares similar RFID platform with payment cards used by drivers for toll road payments, will offer the same ease and convenience for travelers going through immigration checks and border controls.

Cramer further said, the use of e-passports is the only way to speed up waiting lines at immigration counters, especially for the ever-increasing lines of air travelers around the world.

“The world has to start embracing the use of e-passports,” Cramer told newsmen.

Currently, in addition to Malaysia, the technology has been adopted by a number of countries, including New Zealand and Turkey, for its smart cards.

Use MyKad for rice subsidy
15th July, 2009
> http://www.newsabahtimes.com.my/nstweb/fullstory/30376

PETALING JAYA: Fomca has suggested that the government first compile a comprehensive database on the needy, before introducing a discount coupon system for subsidised ST15 rice.

Its secretary-general, Muhammad Shaani Abdullah, said yesterday that without a proper database, the entire exercise of providing subsidised rice would be wasted as it might be abused.

He was commenting on Agriculture and Agrobased-Industry Minister Datuk Noh Omar’s statement yesterday that the government would introduce discount coupons for ST15 rice, beginning September.

The government spends RM32 million a month to subsidise this grade of rice which was popular among the poor. However, it was not reaching the target group.

Muhammad said, instead of coupons, the government should provide identity numbers to those eligible, for insertion into their MyKad chip to be swiped at the various outlets.

This system would minimise abuse, he added.

Meanwhile, on the issue of unethical doctors who disclose a patient’s medical record to third parties, Muhammad said this was “not acceptable at all as it violated not only the consumer’s privacy but also his dignity.”

His comments followed reports that some unethical doctors were working hand-in-glove with bank managements to disclose such confidential information.

The National Union Of Bank Employees (Nube) has alleged that some of its members were subjected to such indignity.

The modus operandi deployed by the banks was to issue conditional guarantee letters to the employees which required their consent to disclose private medical information to the management.

If the employees refused to give their consent, they were denied treatment by the doctors.

Muhammad called on Bank Negara, Malaysian Medical Council and the human resources ministry to investigate the matter.

More Empowerment, Less Excuses Will Improve Civil Service Contribution To Sarawak
July 13, 2009 14:22 PM

MIRI, July 13 (Bernama) -- Civil servants should stop making excuses like "it is not my job" and "there is always tomorrow", as these will hinder efforts to develop Sarawak, Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr George Chan said on Monday.

He said the civil service in the state should inject more empowerment and delegation practices in is administration system to expedite approval of projects and improvement of their services at all levels.

"As we move towards becoming a knowledge society, the shape of the civil service's management model should reflect empowerment and delegation," he said when launching the state civil service's new mottos -- "An Honour to Serve" and "One Government at Your Service" -- here.

He added that the system of empowerment and delegation in the civil service was crucial to administer and implement development in a big state like Sarawak.

"We have been saying that we are lagging behind Semenanjung Malaysia (in terms of development) but if we (the civil servants) continued with this (wrong) attitude, we will not be going anywhere," he said.

For the empowerment and delegation system to operate efficiently, he said, government officers in the state should be ever ready to shoulder the responsibility and know what to do upon being delegated any task previously only executed by their superiors.

Dr Chan said government officers should cease thinking that they were still the "Tuan" (bosses), like in the colonial days, and could delay people's applications as the present scenario required them to go down to the ground to serve the people.

"We are in the globalisation era and the world will not wait for us. The earth will not stop rotating just because we are slow," he added.

Our civil service among the best, says Manyin
By Lim How Pim
Updated : 10:00 am July 16, 2009



KNOW OUR HISTORY: Manyin (right) with Snowdan (left) and Mohammad visit
the exhibition after launching the logo for ‘An honour to serve’ and ‘One
government at your service’. — Photo by Johnathan Bullet


KOTA SAMARAHAN: Minister of Urban Development and Tourism Datuk Michael Manyin Jawong has good words for the state civil service for its contributions and role in helping Sarawak to be among the fastest growing states in the country.

He said the Sarawak civil service had continued to operate with discipline, an element that it had inherited as a legacy of the British colonial era.

He said this had made the state civil service “one of the best in the world”.

He said for this reason the public sector in the state had managed to “deliver with whatever money that has been allocated”, meaning development was continuously taking place.

“The civil servants in Sarawak have been able to implement projects and this is why Sarawak is one of the fastest growing states even though we started late.

“Of course, we still have a lot to catch up but the development that we have definitely can be attributed to the dedication and commitment of our civil service,” he told reporters after launching the logo for ‘An honour to serve’ and ‘One government at your service’ at the Civic Centre here yesterday.

To continue quality service delivery, Manyin said civil servants must be more proactive and creative as well as go the extra mile.

“We should not do the same thing and expect different results. We should look at tomorrow as a different day with a different approach.

“If all of us are having such mentality, we will have a much better civil service in the future,” he said.

Asserting that the civil service played a pivotal role in national development, he said civil servants must take pride in their job and be passionate about what they were doing. Above all, he said they must ditch discrimination and be prepared to accept any tasks and challenges assigned.

“Civil servants are not forced to be in the civil service but they choose to be civil servants and they want to serve the public. We must see it as a privilege to serve, an honour to serve and be proud to serve.”

Noting that the society is growing more affluent, he said civil servants could not afford to carry out their duties routine-like.

“There are new technologies, new ways of doing things and we must constantly upgrade ourselves to deliver better services. We cannot change the world, or make the people around us change. What we can do is change ourselves first, only then we can expect progress,” he added.

Manyin also opened the state-level ‘Development exhibition on 45 years of Sarawak’s progress in Malaysia’.

Samarahan Division is the last venue for 11 such exhibitions held statewide in the past 12 months.

The exhibition opens daily from 10am to 5pm on weekdays and 10am to 8pm on weekends. Entrance is free.

Among those present yesterday were Balai Ringin assemblyman Snowdan Lawan, Muara Tuang assemblyman Datuk Seri Mohammad Ali Mahmud, Chief Minister’s Depar-tment Human Resource Management Unit director Sarudu Hoklai and Samarahan Resident Rodziah Morshidi.

Pos Malaysia Delivers One Billion Mails Annually
July 17, 2009 11:53 AM
By Salbiah Said

KUALA LUMPUR, July 17 (Bernama) -- Despite the stiff competition from modern and instant communication systems, the workload of the postmen has not reduced, delivering an average of one billion letters and parcels annually.

The list of services provided by Pos Malaysia Bhd, which has been in existence for more than 175 years, kept on increasing given its position as the exclusive provider of mail services in Malaysia.

Today, Pos Malaysia, which is listed on Bursa Malaysia, has evolved into a multiple service provider, with volume of conventional mail handled by Pos Malaysia totalling 1.271 billion in 2008, according to available figures.

At a recent briefing for visiting members of Benita, an association of Bernama women employees, a spokesperson of Pos Malaysia said the company was committed to improving its products and services to meet the growing demand of its customers.

Forty per cent of its business are handled in Kuala Lumpur.

Kuala Lumpur, which is the head office of Pos Malaysia has a staff of 2,400, handling an average of 800,000 mails a day.

Most of the mails that Pos Malaysia handles are business-related, such as bank statements, credit card statements, bills, etc.

There are 8,000 postmen in the country, of which 1,600 are in Kuala Lumpur. Of the 1,600 postmen here, 50 are women known as Posnita, who are assigned to do coding duties at the headquarters.

The spokesperson said Pos Malaysia had set before itself realistic service standards, that is, next day delivery after posting for local mail delivery, two days between major towns and 3-4 days between other places in the country.

At present, Pos Malaysia operates a network of over 1,000 outlets comprising General Post Offices, post offices, mini post offices and mobile post offices.

It employs a workforce of more than 16,000 employees throughout the country.

The public can do more than 160 different transactions at the post-office counters, which provide a wide range of services, including collecting payment of utility bills, payment of pensions, renewing road tax and driving licence, as well as paying mobile phone bills.

The postal service, then Postal Service Department, has come a long way from the time when it only delivered letters, newspapers and business documents to Malaysian households nationwide.

Its vast experience formed a strong backbone to support its massive restructuring when it became a corporatised entity in 1992.

In 2003, Pos Malaysia restructured its entire operation into four specific strategic business units -- PosMel, PosLaju, PosNiaga and PosLogistik -- to be more focused on its various customers and marketplace.

Statistics also show that the conventional mail services contributed RM566 million in terms of revenue to the company during the financial year Dec 31, 2008, making it the biggest contributor to the company's revenue.

For 2008, Pos Malaysia posted a net loss of RM33.3 million against a revenue of RM921.7 million, although it made an operating profit.

Its group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Syed Faisal Albar has expressed confidence that Pos Malaysia will return to the black this financial year.

For Faisal, who is formerly CEO of New Straits Times Press Bhd (NSTP), the challenge for Pos Malaysia is to improve the customer service.

Proposal to fine MyKad no takers
2009/07/21

KOTA BARU: Deputy Home Minister Datuk Abu Seman Yusop said the government plans to review the law so that fines can be imposed on those who failed to collect their MyKad.

He said the people should show responsibility by claiming MyKad promptly as the government incurred high cost when making them.

"In Kelantan, more than 16,000 MyKad have not been claimed. This is unhealthy and a waste of money.

"As such, the government plans to review the law so that fines can be imposed on errant applicants," he said after visiting the National Registration Department (NRD) here today.

Each MyKad which costs RM28 to make has to be delivered three weeks after the application was made.

Abu Seman said a task force has been formed in Kelantan to speed up processing of citizenship by about 2,000 Thais.

The government could not issue citizenship freely although they had permanent resident (PR) status as it involved several procedures.

On the detention of nine Johor Immigration Department officers for their involvement in human trafficking, he said the case has been handed over to police.

The deputy minister also said the government has no plans to review the RM300 fee for new passports and renewal. - Bernama

New SS wants to improve service delivery
By Irene C Wednesday, August 19th, 2009
http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=56786



PROMOTING PATRIOTISM: Morshidi (centre) places a miniature
Jalur Gemilang on a government vehicle to launch the campaign.


KUCHING: Newly appointed State Secretary Datuk Mohamad Morshidi Abdul Ghani wants to build a strong team within the state civil service and improve service delivery to the people.

Morshidi said he plans to continue the work of his predecessor, Datuk Amar Wilson Baya, in forming a team that is strong and committed.

“I plan to continue doing that because that would benefit the people. We must ensure that we improve quality of service to the people and get everybody to work together towards that goal,” said Morshidi after launching the ‘Kibar Jalur Gemilang’ campaign at Wisma Bapa Malaysia yesterday.

Morshidi, 53, took over as the seventh state secretary on Aug 2.

Prior to his appointment, he was one of two deputy state secretaries under Baya, who is now Regional Corridor Development Authority (RECODA) chief executive officer.

Meanwhile, Morshidi said 30,000 flags for the whole state would be distributed under the campaign through government agencies.

He said the Jalur Gemilang had been distributed to civil servants since Sunday (Aug 16).

On the response from the public towards flying the national flag and state flag, Morshidi said it is picking up.

“On the way here this morning, I saw the flags on the State Legislative Assembly building, at my kid’s school. We are promoting the idea and call upon everybody to display the flags on houses, shops and cars,” he said.

As there would be many activities held during the Merdeka Month, Morshidi said civil servants who have to go to the ground would be given face masks as a precautionary step against Influenza A (H1N1).

“We have standby masks for them and in fact we have also gotten some from the federal government and we are giving them out when necessary,” he said.

1Malaysia, one civil service admin
Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

KUCHING: The Federal Secretary to Sarawak Md Yahaya Basimin yesterday raised the possibility of having a single government administration in all states one day in line with the 1Malaysia concept.

He said since the country was practising the 1Malaysia concept, perhaps it was time to consider extending the concept to the administration sector in place of the current dual system of the federal civil service and the state civil service.

“If possible, since we are into the 1Malaysia concept … maybe one day there won’t be any separation between the federal and the state administrations because if you talk about the civil service, there is only one,” he told reporters after distributing Jalur Gemilang to staff in the federal departments at Bangunan Sultan Iskandar here yesterday.

He, however, admitted that to merge the two administrations into one would need indepth study to determine if it was feasible and practical.

Yahaya said while he hoped that this could materialise one day, he would still call upon all civil servants to continue to uphold integrity and professionalism and serve the people with diligence and efficiency.

On the distribution of the Jalur Gemilang, he said it would not stop at the federal complex as he planned to go on a city tour to pass the national colours around.

He said he also planned to visit the Health Department where heads of department would be briefed on the latest development of the Influenza A (H1N1).

Earlier Yahaya attached mini Jalur Gemilang on 15 government vehicles as part of the Merdeka campaign to spread the joy of Merdeka and promote the spirit of unity among the civil servants.

He said the concept of 1Malaysia which promotes tolerance and unity should be kept alive in the civil service in order for them to work well as a team to serve the people.

Musa Orders Probe On Claim That Illegal Immigrants Being Registered For MyKads
September 07, 2009 16:58 PM

KOTA KINABALU, Sept 7 (Bernama) -- Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman has ordered a probe into an allegation that a village head and the National Registration Department colluded in an attempt to register illegal immigrants.

Musa, who is also State Security Committee chairman, said if the allegation was true it entailed irregularities and abuse of power and stern action must be taken against those involved.

"The government does not condone such activity," he told reporters after chairing the State Action Council meeting at Wisma Innoprise near here on Monday.

He was commenting on an allegation by Sabah Parti Keadilan Rakyat deputy chief Datuk Kong Hong Ming that about 200 illegal immigrants, mostly Bugis, were ferried by buses and taxis to Kampung Kalabakan Tengah for the three-day registration exercise last month.

Asked whether the department should suspense its mobile registration exercise in the rural areas pending the investigation, Musa said the villagers themselves had asked for it.

"The mobile MyKad registration exercise benefit villagers as they do not have to travel to JPN offices in the towns.

"Although the exercise is costly and time consuming, it continued to be held in the interest of the people in line with the 1Malaysia concept," he said.

RM500 also for state civil servants
Friday, September 11th, 2009

Special assistance to benefit 14,419 eligible employees, says Wong

KUCHING: The state government will follow the federal government’s move by giving out RM500 in special assistance to 14,419 eligible civil servants.

The amount will be given out in two instalments of RM250 each before the Hari Raya and in December.

Second Finance Minister Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh said it will cost the state government RM7.2 million.

“This special allowance is given only to diploma holders and those with lower academic qualifications to lighten their financial burden,” he said when interviewed at his office here yesterday.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced the special assistance for federal government servants on Wednesday to reduce civil servants’ burden during the festive season and to prepare for the new school year.

Some 860,000 federal civil servants throughout the country will benefit from this move and it will cost the government RM430 million.

Meanwhile, the Sarawak Teachers’ Union is requesting the government to give a bonus equivalent to a month’s salary and a minimum of RM1,000 to all government servants in the upcoming federal budget.

“In all fairness and especially to the graduates or professional group of civil servants who are not given the RM500 special assistance, STU suggests that the special assistance received now be treated as part of the one-month bonus with the minimum at RM1,000,” its president William Ghani told a press conference yesterday.

He said that this request is sincerely put forward in the belief that the government appreciates civil servants’ contributions to the country.

Ghani said that under the request, a support-group civil servant whose salary is RM500 will only receive another RM500 as he has already received the first payment RM500.

He explained that support-group civil servants are non-graduate teachers and clerks.

Turning to the religious issue which is rampant in Peninsular Malaysia, Ghani said politicians should not capitalise on it.

“We are grateful because Sabah and Sarawak do not have any issues that can break the people apart,” he said when commenting on the protest against the relocation of a Hindu temple in Shah Alam.
