PETALING JAYA: A 25-member Special Malaysia Disaster Assistance and Rescue Team (Smart) squad is ready for rescue deployment to help search for survivors of the Padang earthquake.

It is understood the Malaysian Government is waiting for the green light from the Indonesian authorities to leave for Padang.

A Malaysian medical team is also expected to leave with the Smart team.

“We are all ready. The moment we get the word, we will leave from the Subang air force base.

“The earliest we can leave is tomorrow (Saturday). All our equipment has been packed and stored in Subang,” an official told The Star yesterday.

The team members have vast experience in rescue operations, having been involved in disaster relief work in Turkey, India, Indonesia and the Philippines.

A rescue team from Japan is already in Padang.

Officials said the team would also be bringing their own multi-purpose vehicle.

The team has also been advised to bring its own petrol as supply was getting scarce in Indonesia and there have been reports of long queues at petrol kiosks. The Malaysian Government is also expected to send food supplies, water, clothing and tents for the quake victims.

Meanwhile, Wisma Putra officials still in Padang are tracing Malaysians who might still be stranded there.

Malaysian Consul-General in Medan, Fauzi Omar, said AirAsia and Firefly were operating again in Padang.

“The stranded Malaysians may have taken these flights home. We are still checking anyway,” he added.

Exit and airport taxes a hassle


PETALING JAYA: Even though it was an evacuation flight, a tax is still a tax and if you do not pay, you will not be able to leave Indonesia.

The group of Malaysians being evacuated to Malaysia on four Royal Malaysia Air Force planes were told to pay 200,000 rupiah (RM72) exit tax and another 100,000 rupiah (RM36) airport tax each before they were allowed to depart.

The taxes caught Malaysian officials off guard.


Furthermore, most of the students had lost nearly everything including important documents like their passports.

After a lengthy argument with airport authorities, the Malaysians were allowed to leave.

“We told them a letter of undertaking from the Government will be issued, providing a guarantee that the amount of the taxes will be settled,” said a Malaysian official.

Another official blamed the problem on miscommunication between the Indonesian authorities in Jakarta and Padang.

“Jakarta had made it clear that the quake was an emergency situation and thus, evacuation operations should be accorded due process. Maybe those on the ground in Padang did not get the instruction,” the official added.

It is understood that the aid supplied brought in by the planes were also a sticking point with airport authorities.

The confusion caused the first flight with 128 people to be delayed for an hour.

The subsequent three evacuation flights were smooth after the problems were ironed out.

Indonesia Seeks Opportunity From Expanding Asean, Bilateral FTAs
October 05, 2009 18:20 PM

JAKARTA, Oct 5 (Bernama) -- Indonesia is upbeat on its growing trade with China, South Korea, India, Australia and New Zealand following plans to set up Free Trade Area (FTA) pacts with those countries under the Association of Southeast Asia Nations (Asean) agreement and by bilateral agreements, a senior official at the Indonesian Trade Ministry said here on Monday.

S.L. Tobing, Foreign Trade Director General at the Trade Ministry, said the government is now preparing to comply with requirements required in the would-be established free trade pacts with those countries.

"Among the essential requirement is the Certificate of Origin. We will be obliged to prove that the products we export to those countries are genuinely made by domestic producers," China's Xinhua news agency quoted Tobing as saying.

According to the senior official, officials of ten countries that joined in the ASEAN are now in talks with their counterparts from India, South Korea, China, New Zealand and Australia regarding the plans to reduce import tariffs on certain products to those countries.

Apart from that, the Indonesian government is in bilateral talks with the Australian government over the plan to set up a particular Free Trade Area between the two neighbouring countries.

Tobing said that Indonesia is assisted by the representative office of the World Trade Organization (WTO)-sanctioned International Chambers of Commerce (ICC) in drafting the trade terms proposed in the FTA with Australia.

Indonesia saw a tremendous export growth in August this year to US$10.55 billion, or 8.89 percent higher from the month earlier with the most export consisting of natural resources commodities.

Indonesia's total export in the last eight months this year stood at US$70.30 billion, or 26.30 percent lower than the same period last year.

Indonesians pay six months salary to work in Malaysia
Published: Monday October 5, 2009 MYT 2:32:00 PM

BANGKOK: Indonesian workers have to pay a year's salary to use intermediary services to work in Taiwan, and about six months' salary to move to Malaysia or Singapore, according to the 2009 Human Development Report 2009 launched Monday.

Asian migrants moving to the Gulf often paid 25 to 30 percent of what they expected to earn over two or three years in recruitment and other fees, the report's lead author, Jeni Klugman said.

She said that under agreements between the governments of Thailand, Cambodia and Laos, recruitment fees were equivalent to four to five months' salary, processing time averaged about four months and 15 percent of wages were withheld pending the migrant's return home.

"In contrast, smugglers reportedly charge the equivalent of only one month's salary. Given these cost differences, it is not surprising that only 26 percent of migrant workers in Thailand were registered in 2006," she said.

The report, commissioned by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), showed that both internal and international migration involve extensive official documentation, which in turn can inhibit mobility or lead to irregular movement.

While there are large numbers of licensed recruitment agencies, for instance 1,500 in the Philippines and close to 2,000 in India, many are ignoring legal caps on fees charged for their services.

"The difference between wages at home and expected wages abroad is perhaps the most important determinant of the price of intermediary services," the report said.

"People with less skill and who are poorer are more likely to move. But the current economic downturn also showed that there has been decrease in demand for migrant workers," the report says, adding that unequal opportunities were a major driver of movement.

Someone born in Thailand can expect to live seven more years, to have almost three times as many years of education and save eight times as much as someone born in Myanmar, it adds.

In turn, Thai migrants in Hong Kong and Taiwan are paid at least four times as much as they would earn as low-skilled workers at home. - Bernama

TERKAIT JUDI, WARGA SUMBAR TOLAK BANTUAN PEMERINTAH MALAYSIA
Harian Kota, 2 Oktober 2009

JAKARTA - Berbagai bantuan telah mengalir dan mulai menumpuk di Bandara Minangkabau, Padang, Sumatera Barat sejak Kamis lalu, hal ini cukup mengganggu kepadatan traffic di Bandara Minangkabau, Padang, Sumatera Barat, yang sudah cukup tinggi dan mengakibatkan sejumlah penerbangan mengalami delay. Bahkan pesawat yang ditumpangi Menteri Kesehatan Siti Fadilah Supari dan Menko Kesra Aburizal Bakrie sempat tertahan di udara Padang selama beberapa jam.

Namun ada yang menarik dari tumpukan bantuan tersebut, yaitu dipisahkannya bantuan dari Pemerintah Malaysia dengan bantuan dari negara-negara lainnya, hal ini di sebabkan karena adanya penolakan bantuan dari Pemerintah Malaysia dikarenakan alasan sumber dana Judi.

"Kami sangat berterimakasih atas kepedulian Pemerintah Malaysia, namun karena dibeberapa tempat terjadi penolakan dikarenakan alasan judi, kami memilih untuk memisahkan bantuan Pemerintah malaysia dengan bantuan negara lain, akan tetapi banyak juga bantuan dari perkumpulan warga minang di Malaysia yang mengirim bantuan dan tidak ditolak" ujar Kepala Distribusi Bantuan Bandara Minangkabau, Departemen Perhubungan Budi S Ervan.

Seperti diketahui Pemerintah Malaysia memiliki fasilitas perjudian terbaik dan terlengkap di Asia Tenggara dengan omset pendapatan 4 Milliar Dollar/tahun bernama Genting Highland, dan hal tersebut dinilai warga Sumatra Barat sangat bertolak belakang dengan budaya Muslim negeri Jiran tersebut.

Bantuan Pemerintah Malaysia berupa Mie Instan, Selimut, Tenda dan obat-obatan terlihat dibiarkan menumpuk di sisi kiri bandara Minagkabau dan sangat menggangu lalulintas bantuan korban gempa.

"Bantuan dari Negara Jepang yang tiba lebih dulu berupa 2500 Genset, 500 Tenda, 25 Instalasi penyaringan air, 400 Toilet portable dan 10 Kontainer Rumah Sakit Mini sudah kami sebarkan di 6 Kabupaten, sedang dari Pemerintah Amerika, Brasil, Jerman, Filipinna, Brunai, Australia, Thailand, Vietnam dan Russia berupa Beras, obat-obatan, tenda, selimut, bahan makanan, instalasi air yang total keseluruhan berjumlah sekitar 28.000 ton akan tiba mulai hari ini, kami berusaha berkadinasi Barkorlak dan Palang Merah Internasional untuk penyediaan tempat penyimpanan dan penyalurannya" ujar Budi S Ervan.

Harian Kota, Jumat (2/10/2009).


Wow, US ngan Japan tu "Halal" la sgt. Tak tau ke Syubhah tu mende, sbb tu kena Zakat, nak menyucikan pendapatan kite. Sume bende kat Malaysia ni Syubhah la nok.

Melaka Government Launches Padang Earthquake Disaster Fund
October 05, 2009 22:23 PM

MELAKA, Oct 5(Bernama) -- The Melaka government collected RM163,000 from corporations and individuals in the state for earthquake victims in Padang, Indonesia soon after launching its relief fund for them here Monday.

Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the state aimed to collect RM500,000 for the fund but no specific deadline had been set.

"In the initial stages, RM50,000 will be donated to the earthquake victims in the form of tents worth RM30,000 and food stocks worth RM20,000 through our representatives who will be going there today," he told reporters at Seri negeri, Ayer Keroh here.

When launching the fund, Mohd Ali also handed over a cheque for RM10,000 to the NSTP-Media Prima Disaster Fund and another cheque for RM10,000 to the Tabung Gempa Nusantara (Malay Archipelago Earthquake Fund).

Those wishing to contribute to the disaster fund can write out their cheques in the name of the Melaka state treasurer.

Meanwhile, the deputy Vice-Chancellor of the Melaka Islamic University College (KUIM) Dr Baharudin Puteh said KUIM was prepared to offer places for 22 students from Melaka who were pursuing Islamic Studies in Padang to continue their studies at the college in the Degree in Psychology course.

Thirty-two out of the 380 Malaysian students studying in Padang are from Melaka with 10 of them studying medicine at the Andalas University while 22 others are pursuing Islamic Studies at the Imam Bonjol University.

I for one agree that the Indonesian government needs to do more to control its 'naughty' media. Unfortunately there are substantial uneducated mass from 200+ mil. people in Indonesia who could be easily manipulated. Hopefully moving toward the future, everyone's here could get decent education so nothing like this will ever be repeated. Once again, thanks a million for the help offered and apologise for the recent ridiculous spat. I'm looking forward for a prosperous and harmonious future to this part of the world!!

Rebel outlines ‘invasion’ plan
By PHILIP GOLINGAI


Maintaining that it has valid reasons to ganyang Malaysia, Bendera’s leader reveals details of its planned invasion on Oct 8. Should we be worried?

JAKARTA’s forestry department was the most unlikely place to meet an Indonesian man who was six days away from waging a war against Malaysia.

But that was where my Indonesian journalist friend Samiaji Bintang brought me for a face-to-face interview with Adian Napitupulu, a 38-year-old Batak man spearheading a vigilante group that has vowed to ganyang (crush) Malaysia.

As we headed for our lunchtime appointment with Adian, the leader of Bendera (Benteng Demokrasi Rakyat or People’s Democratic Defence), I asked Samiaji how far the meeting place was from where Adian’s vigilante group conducted their “sweeping” of Malaysians.

“It is about 10km to 15km away,” said the 32-year-old journalist.


Hostile sweep: Bendera’s vigilantes, armed with sharpened bamboo sticks, blocking a road to search for Malaysians in Jakarta on Sept 8. – AFP

Far enough, I thought.

On Sept 8, a dozen Bendera vigilantes clad in red and white (the colour of the Indonesian flag) and armed with sharpened bamboo sticks set up roadblocks at Menteng in central Jakarta and checked ID card of passers-by to screen for Malaysians.

They failed to net any Malaysian.

On Friday afternoon, when most Indonesians were focused on the double earth quakes that devastated Sumatra, Samiaji and I entered one of the government buildings in the forestry department to locate Adian, who was in Regina Putera Cafe.

I did not know what to expect – a man carrying a sharpened bamboo stick, perhaps?

Outside the café at a Starbucks-like table sat three Indonesian men. I gave my business card to all of them, not knowing who was who. Adian turned out to be a skinny dark-skinned man wearing a white shirt and jeans.

“When was Bendera founded and what is its purpose?” were my first two questions as I wanted to gauge the hostility of the leader of the group that plans to invade Malaysia on Oct 8.


Adian: ‘If 26 million Malaysians keep silent about other Malaysians abusing Indonesians, then they are all jahat’

Speaking in Bahasa Indonesia, Adian, a member of PDI-P (Megawati Sukarnoputri’s Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle), said he founded Bendera two and a half months ago during the Indonesian presidential election as he found that political parties did not fight for the people’s rights.

“What has your fight for the people’s right got to do with Bendera’s ‘sweeping’ of Malaysians on Oct 8?” I asked.

“We were ‘sweeping’ Malaysians because (the Malaysian government) is ‘sweeping’ Indonesians in Malaysia,” said the man who was not involved in the Menteng ‘sweeping’ as he had other nationalistic duties on that day.

“We only managed to ‘sweep’ for 30 minutes because the police stopped us,” he added.

“What would you have done if you had managed to find a Malaysian that day?” I asked.

“Suruh pulang (tell them to go home),” he said as he smoked Djarum Super, a kretek (clove-flavoured) cigarette.

“Why did your men carry sharpened bamboo sticks?” I asked.

“It is the symbol of Indonesia’s independence struggle (from their Dutch coloniser),” he said.

When I asked if he had planned to use the bamboo stick on any Malaysian citizen that day, he replied: “We would only use it in Malaysia.”

He was referring to Bendera’s announcement – which was widely reported in the Indonesian and Malaysian media – that Oct 8 is their D-day to avenge all the wrongs committed by Malaysia against Indonesia.

Adian then gave me Bendera’s four-page war declaration with the bold headline “GANYANG MALAYSIA!”

The declaration stated that the Rentcong Aceh, panah Papua, Pedang Pattimura, mandau Kalimantan, keris Jawa, kujang Sunda, golok Betawi, badik Palembang and pedang Sisingamagaraja (Indonesian traditional weapons) had “bloodily” vowed to crush Malaysia’s arrogance.

It also listed several reportedly recalcitrant actions by Malaysians that have exhausted the patience of the people of Indonesia. The list included claiming Indonesian islands (Sipadan, Ligitan and Jemur); stealing Indonesian cultural heritage (food like rendang, songs like Rasa Sayang Sayange, Injit Injit Semut, Burung Kakak Tua, and Anak Kambing Saya, and the Pendet dance); and abusing Indonesian workers (it named 34 people including Nirmala Bonat who was abused with a hot iron, hot water and a metal cup by her employer in 2004).

“How’s your plan to attack Malaysia?” I asked.

Six weeks ago, according to Adian, 10 Bendera spies slipped into Malaysia to build a network among Indonesian workers. He claimed these Indonesian James Bonds managed to convince 1.45 million Indonesians – maids, construction and plantation workers – to burn their workplace when Bendera launches its confrontation on Malaysia.

When I pointed out that it would cost Bendera about RM145,000 just to text message the 1.45 million Indonesian workers (assuming the spies have all their phone numbers and an SMS costs 10 sen), Adian flashed his crooked teeth. “We’ve got our ways to communicate,” he stated.

“On paper, we have already won,” Adian said, again flashing his crooked teeth.

In World War II, according to him, the allies required two months to prepare for their attack on Germany. But Bendera does not need two months as it already has 1.45 million conspirators in Malaysia.

“That is why we have a different view from President SBY (pronounced as ‘ess-bay-yay’, the initials of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono). SBY said Indonesia cannot attack Malaysia as there are 1.8 million Indonesian workers in Malaysia. But for us the 1.8 million people are our strength to attack Malaysia.”

And then Adian started attacking Malaysia by showing the photographs (in the four-page declaration) of Indonesian maids being abused here.

“Look at this,” he said, pointing at the photograph of Nirmala.

“If Malaysia says that Malaysians and Indonesians are satu rumpun (the same stock), then why do they abuse their own rumpun?”

Pointing at a photograph of a man being caned, he asked angrily: “Why does your police, soldier and what do you call… Rela… abuse Indonesians?

“Do you know that once in three days an Indonesian is abused in Malaysia?”

On Oct 8, Adian claimed, about 300 Indonesians – trained in ilmu kebal (black magic) which makes them invincible to sharp objects and bullets – would invade Malaysia by attacking Malaysian towns in the island of Borneo (where Indonesia’s Kalimantan and Malaysia’s Sabah and Sarawak are located).

“From Pontianak (in Kalimantan) we will cross to Kuching (in Sarawak) and capture it. And then we will go to the next town. And from Nunukan (in Kalimantan) we will cross to the next town,” he said.

“What is that town?” I asked Adian, Bendera’s war strategist.

“I don’t know the name. But it is the town that we are going to capture,” he declared.

(Just for the record, the closest Malaysian town to Nunukan is Tawau in Sabah.)

In six to eight months, he confidentally predicted, Bendera would conquer Kuala Lumpur.

“Why don’t you just go straight for the jugular and attack Kuala Lumpur?” I asked.

“Uncle Mao’s military tactic was to first capture villages and then the city. We will capture your villages, your towns and eventually your capital,” he explained.

“What is your image of Malaysians?” I asked Adian who has never visited Malaysia.

“Jahat (evil),” he said.

“All 26 million Malaysians?” I asked.

“If 26 million Malaysians keep silent about other Malaysians abusing Indonesians, then they are all jahat,” he explained.

“How do you feel now that you are face to face with a Malaysian?” I asked.

“Mukanya baik. Mukanya lucu. Mukanya tak ada niat jahat (Your face looks nice. Your face looks humorous. Your face doesn’t show any evil intention),” he said, smiling while the handful of Indonesians who were intensely listening in to the interview burst out laughing.

“Are you Malaysian?” asked Poltak Sitanggang, 42, who owns a news website and had just finished interviewing Adian.

“Yes,” I said.

“Why don’t we ‘sweep’ him?” Poltak suggested to Adian.

“No, he is a funny guy,” Adian said.

I continued to smile.

And Adian continued his verbal tirade against on Malaysia.

“Malaysia has exported two terrorists (Noordin Mat Top and Dr Azahari Husin) to Indonesia. And yet the international community think that Indonesia is full of terrorists,” he said.

“Is it correct to say that the Indonesian government has not arrested you because it thinks your invasion plan is just omong omong kosong (empty talk)?” I ventured.

His face turning angry, he said the police had occupied Bendera’s headquarters (which was formerly used by Megawati’s PDI-P as their base).

He said he had received intimidating phone calls from people who have the power to intimidate. Others called to warn that attacking Malaysia was suicidal.

But he just switched off his phone when he received such calls, he said.

When told that an Indonesian Embassy official in Kuala Lumpur had said Bendera’s plan to invade Malaysia was “too ludicrous to respond to officially”, Adian said that was what the embassy thought.

“But they don’t know as it is not the Indonesian government which will invade Malaysia but Bendera.”

“So what are the chances of your group succeeding in its invasion plan?” I asked.

“In 1998, Suharto (the former Indonesian president) did not believe the students could make him step down. But it happened,” said Adian, one of the student leaders who had organised mass street protests against Suharto.

Poltak, a Batak, said he interviewed Adian because he was curious about the nationalistic views of the former student activist who had made a name for himself during the fall of Suharto.

“I’m not gila (crazy),” said Adian. “We have good reasons to attack Malaysia. Only crazy people attack (another country) without any reason.”
Put a stop to Malaysia-bashing


I DIDN’T know whether to laugh or cry when I read the article “Rebel outlines ‘invasion’ plan” (The Sunday Star, Oct 4) which reports on the threat by Indonesian rebels to ganyang (crush) Malaysia on Oct 8. The self-styled vigilante group calling itself Bendera detailed its planned invasion starting with towns in Borneo where Indonesia’s Kalimantan and Malaysia’s Sabah and Sarawak are located.

Attacking Malaysia armed with sharpened bamboo sticks and bullet-proof black magic? It is ludicrous and pathetic at best. This is the same group which set roadblocks in central Jakarta to “sweep’’ out Malaysians and pelted stones at our embassy in the capital city. Many looked like they should be in school or harnessing the excess energy in rebuilding their earthquake-hit town in western Sumatra.

Here we go again, helping them in all the disasters that strike their country. Our government is the first to offer condolences and the first to send emergency aid. Care packages were sent by the plane loads. Our SMART teams, Mercy and volunteers rushed to help in search-and-rescue operations and help with the reconstruction process. Our press are spear-heading donation drives for cash and kind.

But are our good deeds being appreciated? The “hate Malaysia” campaign started with the Manohara case, the bad treatment of maid Nirmala Bonat and the claim on the islands of Sipadan, Ligitan and Jemur. Petty things like “stealing” Indonesia’s cultural heritage like the Pendet dance, songs like Rasa Sayang and Burung Kakak Tua and even our food like rendang became issues.

The Indonesians have even taken the Malaysia-bashing internationally with hundreds posting comments involving Malaysia on forums in leading American newspapers. A sample from the Chicago Tribune when our first death from swine flu was reported: “Thank God. Malaysia is a cursed country. They die of a disease from the pig.”

What hurts the most was the aftermath of the bombing of Nordin Mat Top.

A top military brass emphasised three times to the CNN that Nordin was a Malaysian, and since Malaysia is claiming his body “it’s good; we will finally have peace.” Had he forgotten where Nordin was trained? Do we shout out about the murders and robberies committed by the illegal Indonesians here?

Our Information Minister and the Malaysian media took pains to do damage control by planning a muhibbah of sorts between the people of both nations. It should be initiated by their side too.

But we didn’t hear a squeak from the Indonesian leaders. Does silence mean consent or blessing? If it were our people conducting such hateful propaganda, our government will surely reprimand us.

Just can’t figure why we are dubbed arrogant based on Nirmala Bonat’s unfortunate case.

Most us have maids who have gone on the haj, own land, houses and fish ponds after working with us. We are feeding the 1.8 million Indon workers here and helping the Indonesian economy.

IDZAN ISMAIL,

Petaling Jaya.

Security on alert for 'invasion'

2009/10/07

Farrah Naz Karim

PUTRAJAYA: The government is not taking lightly the invasion threat by Indonesia’s Benteng Demokrasi Rakyat (Bendera) and to wage war.

Bendera had allegedly threatened to send 1,500 troops — armed with sharpened bamboo — to Malaysia by air, land and sea tomorrow. All relevant enforcement
agencies have been told to gear up for any possibility of members of the group penetrating Malaysian shores. Their sole mission is to “avenge all the alleged wrongs committed against Indonesia”.

The group is the same one which had set up roadblocks in Menteng, Central Jakarta last month, in search of Malaysians. National Security Council secretary

Datuk Mohamed Tajudeen Abdul Wahab said security at all Malaysian borders, which were manned by the military, had been tightened and enforcement agencies,
including the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, had been directed
to conduct daily surveillance.

“While we see this as a group of mad fools’ rhetoric, we are not taking
any chances as this involves the lives of our people.

“We are taking precautionary measures and we have an assurance from the Indonesian government that they would not allow it to happen,”he told the New Straits Times.

Tajudeen said the government’s intelligence had identified strategic areas
of illegal landings along the 880km coastline in the west coast of
the peninsula. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said police had heightened vigilance since the threat was issued and would be on the look out
for “troublemakers”.

His men would be on high-alert patrols and act against anyone who posed threats to Malaysians. Immigration Department director-general Abdul Rahman Othman said
his men at all entry points in the country had been put on high alert.

“We are checking all the points, including ports. We are on full alert for unsavoury characters trying to come into the country.”

Foreign Affairs Ministry secretary-general Tan Sri Rastam Mohd Isa said Malaysia would take up this latest threat with the Indonesian government
immediately.

“We will do whatever it takes to defend the country.”

Prepare ourselves from an invasion tomorrow

TUDM siasat pesawat kena baling penduduk Padang

Oleh Mohd Anwar Patho Rohman
wananwar@bharian.com.my

Misi bantuan Malaysia dikatakan tak disenangi segelintir masyarakat

KUALA LUMPUR: Tentera Udara Diraja Malaysia (TUDM) akan menyiasat insiden pesawat pengangkut C-130 Hercules dibaling dengan batu oleh penduduk Padang, ketika melaksanakan misi menyelamat dan menghantar bantuan kemanusiaan ke wilayah yang dilanda gempa bumi itu, baru-baru ini.

Panglima TUDM, Jeneral Datuk Rodzali Daud, berkata tindakan itu boleh dilihat seolah-olah kehadiran pesawat Malaysia kurang disenangi segelintir masyarakat di kawasan terbabit.

"Kita menerima laporan bahawa pesawat C-130 Hercules dilempar batu ketika melaksanakan misi menyelamat dan menghantar bantuan kepada mangsa bencana baru-baru ini.

"Bagaimanapun TUDM menerima kejadian itu dengan rasional dan memastikan anggotanya tidak terikut-ikut dengan tindakan segelintir penduduk tempatan terhadap aset serta anggota yang dikerah ke sana.

"Kita pergi ke tempat yang mengalami darurat atau bermasalah, maka kita tidak mahu menimbulkan lagi masalah lain. Apa yang perlu kita buat ialah membuat siasatan kerana sudah ada laporan.

"Namun, kita akan mengambil langkah yang sewajarnya supaya kejadian berkenaan tidak berulang. Memandangkan operasi masih berjalan, kita akan melaksanakannya sehingga selesai," katanya.
Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang media selepas perasmian Kongres Perubatan Ketenteraan Sedunia (WCMM) ke-38 di sini, semalam yang disempurnakan Menteri Pertahanan, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Rodzali mengulas laporan pesawat C-130 Hercules dilempar batu dan dihalang mendarat oleh segelintir penduduk Padang yang dikatakan masih berang terhadap Malaysia berhubung isu tarian Pendet.

Pesawat itu berlepas dari Pangkalan Udara Subang ke Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Minangkabau, satu-satunya lapangan terbang komersial yang masih beroperasi di Padang.

Beliau berkata, kejadian itu tidak mematahkan semangat anggota dan pegawai TUDM bertugas kerana mereka memikul tanggungjawab yang sudah diamanahkan kerajaan bagi membantu negara jiran yang dilanda bencana.

Sementara itu, Ahmad Zahid menganggap tindakan sekumpulan kecil penduduk Padang membaling batu pada pesawat TUDM itu sebagai permainan budak-budak nakal.

"Di sana mungkin ada budak-budak nakal, namun kita tetap mengutamakan semangat saudara serumpun. Cubit paha kanan, paha kiri terasa juga. Maka, kita akan meneruskan operasi sehingga keadaan di sana tenang dan kembali seperti sedia kala," katanya.

Beliau berkata, Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (ATM) turut menghantar 53 orang lagi ke Padang dalam Misi Bantuan Kemanusiaan, petang semalam.

Pers Malaysia Galang Bantuan Korban Gempa Sumbar
Republika - 5 Oktober 2009

KUALA LUMPUR--Media massa di Malaysia, terutama media cetak, seperti Berita Harian, Utusan Malaysia, The Star dan The New Straits Times melakukan penggalangan dana kemanusian bagi korban gempa bumi di Sumatera Barat.

Harian "The Star" membuka rekening di CIMB untuk menerima sumbangan masyarakat di empat negara, yakni Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapura dan Thailand sejak Jum`at, 3 Oktober 2009. Rekening itu dinamakan "CIMB-The Star Padang Relief Fund"

CEO CIMB Nazir Razak langsung menyerahkan bantuan sebesar 100.000 ringgit (sekitar Rp280 juta) dalam pembukaan rekening itu. Nazir Razak adalah seorang putra dari PM Malaysia Nazib Tun Razak dan ibunya Rosmah Mansor (istri Najib) adalah keturunan Padang, Sumatera Barat.

Nazir mengatakan, pihaknya akan menyiapkan 1.150 boks di seluruh cabang CIMB di Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapura, dan Thailad. CIMB telah membeli Bank Niaga di Indonesia.

Media Prima, sebuah konglomerat media di Malaysia, yang memiliki koran Berita Harian, Harian Metro, New Straits Times dan jaringan TV3, TV7 dan TV9 membuka rekening penggalangan dana "Tabung Bencana" bekerjasama dengan Maybank.

Harian "Utusan Malaysia" sebagai salah koran berbahasa Melayu terbesar di Malaysia juga membukan "Tabung Gempa Nusantara" bekerjasama dengan Maybank.

Berbagai masyarakat Malaysia membuka berbagai teromol untuk menyalurkan bantuan dana kemanusian korban gempa bumi di Sumatera Barat. NUJ (National Union of Journalists) Malaysia mengumpulkan dana 1.660 dari berbagai wartawan Asean yang sedang mengadakan konferensi "Confederation of Asean Journalist" di Kuala Lumpur.

Pemuda Barisan Nasional (BN) Johor Bahru juga membuka saluran bantuan kemanusian untuk korban gempa di Sumbar. Ketua Pemuda BN Johor Bahru Khaled Mohamed mengatakan, pihaknya akan menggalang sumbangan dana dari para anggota sebanyak 14 partai politik yang berkoalisi ke dalam Barisan Nasional.

Diperkirakan dana yang akan terkumpul antara 25.000 - 50.000 ringgit yang akan disalurkan kepada lembaga yang berwenang. ant/taq
