More than 400,000 PTPTN borrowers taken out of blacklist — PTPTN chairman

KUALA LUMPUR (June 26): The names of 429,945 borrowers of the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) have been removed from the Immigration blacklist since May 24, said its chairman Wan Saiful Wan Jan.

He said “whitening” process of the borrowers’ names was completed last June 8, a week earlier than expected.

“This is made to fulfil the 100-day pledge made by the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government to fulfil its manifesto made during the 14th General Election.


 

“However, those whose names have been taken out of the Immigration blacklist are advised to continue to make their study loan repayments,” he told a press conference here today.

To that effect, he said, borrowers who had been barred from travelling abroad  were now free to travel and the PTPTN counter at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA 2) would be closed down, effective July 1.

Wan Saiful is the new PTPTN chairman, replacing  Datuk Shamsul Anuar Nasarah.

The consistent repayment of the education loans by the borrowers will ensure they do not have outstanding payments and a clean record in the Central Credit Reference Information System (CCRIS).

CCRIS is a centralised system developed by Bank Negara to gather and store all data on debts by individuals or companies with banks or other financial institutions  and used as reference by all financial institutions or credit providers in Malaysia.

Wan Saiful said that besides having a clean CCRIS record,  PTPTN borrowers who made early settlement could have access to an ujrah loan of one per cent (a syariah-compliant education loan).

He said they would also enjoy a 20 per cent discount for full payment or 10 per cent for 50 per cent settlement.

On the PH manifesto to defer payment of the PTPTN loan for all borrowers earning less than RM4,000 a month, Wan Saiful said the borrowers would have to continue paying the loan until an announcement on the matter by PTPTN  in August.

Substantial reduction of govt debt in next few months — PM Mahathir
Bernama / Bernama
June 28, 2018 16:47 pm +08

KUALA LUMPUR (June 28): The government is hopeful of a substantial reduction in the amount of government debt within the next few months, said Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

He said since taking over as prime minister, his government had cancelled a number of costly projects which contributed to the overall debt reduction.

"Trying to reduce debt is a tough job, but we have cancelled a number of costly projects," he said at the American Malaysian Chamber of Commerce luncheon here today.

He said the government’s efforts at improving the financial situation and economy of the country, however, was not being taken positively by foreign investors, leading to a capital outflow.

"Sometimes, I feel the market prefers to be told lies on how good we are, rather than the truth," he added.

The prime minister emphasised the government's business friendly policy and need for closer collaboration between the public and private sectors.

"We want to work closely with the private sector, which means, of course, we will be accessible to it," he said.

Dr Mahathir also said the government is open to ideas and constructive comments from the private sector to help improve the delivery process of the public sector.

"I can assure you that when criticised or told we are doing something wrong, we will do our best to correct it," he added.

He said the intention of the government is to facilitate the growth of the private sector, which is the engine of wealth for the country.

The prime minister emphasised the government's business friendly policy and need for closer collaboration between the public and private sectors.

"We want to work closely with the private sector, which means, of course, we will be accessible to it," he said.

PETALING JAYA: A total of nine government agencies will operate as independent entities beginning Sunday (July1), and will report directly to Parliament.

Among the agencies are the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), the Election Commission (EC), the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam), the Public Prosecutor's Office and the National Audit Department.

This is just part of the massive overhaul of the Prime Minister's Department.

The Public Service Commission, Education Service Commission and the Judicial Appointments Commission will also report directly to Parliament, which will be an independent entity.

In a June 26 letter addressed to the Prime Minister's Department sighted by The Star, Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali * approved the abolition of 10 departments and agencies including 19 other smaller divisions or offices under the Prime Minister's Office.

It also includes the merging of five agencies and the redesignation of 40 agencies.

The country's special envoy on Infrastructure to India and South Asia Tun S. Samy Vellu will have his services terminated after his contract expires at the end of the year.

The special envoy post is with ministerial rank.

The office, including that of the Special Envoy to China, will also be abolished. Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting had relinquished his post as the special envoy in January.

Tan Sri Dr Rais Yatim, who was the Socio-Cultural Advisor to the Government, also had his services ended on Saturday (June 30), along with the expiry of his contract.

As expected, the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) has been abolished and its functions absorbed by the Transport Ministry.

Others abolished included the National Professors Council, the National Innovation Agency, the Special Implementation Task Force, Civil Service Delivery Unit (CSDU) and the 2050 National Transformation (TN50) secretariat.

Meanwhile, the Attorney General's Chambers is still under the Prime Minister's Department but its prosecuting functions have been placed under the Public Prosecutor's Office.

The Legal Aid Department and Insolvency Department will also be merged with the Law and Judiciary Ministry.

《飢饿游戏》系列电影中的暴政被推翻后,义军领袖宣称要继续举办不人道的飢饿游戏。於是女主角凯妮丝决定杀死义军领袖,让残忍的杀人游戏悲剧不再重演。这虽然只是小说与电影情节,但它们距离我们並不遥远。试想,如果今天新政府要重复的不是杀人游戏这类极端例子,而是重复过去的种族思维与政策?

新內阁名单终於敲定,华社无不讚扬。一部分人认为这次內阁拥有许多华人部长是一大进步,显示华人权益受到新政府重视等等。但是从种族角度视之,是华人的权益被重视,还是我们华人仍然受困於种族思维里,所以只看到华人部长的数字?

从种族主义角度出发

我们的过去仍然在困扰著我们,这些过去也塑造了今天我们看事情的方式,以及思考解决方案的思维。能否打破我们对於过去的解读,重新形塑我们对於过去的看法,进而影响我们对未来的决定,是非常重要的。

打开歷史课本,会发现我们对过去的解读是从种族主义出发的。在政府中学,主要从马来人和伊斯兰的视角出发,其他种族、宗教和文化只是陪衬。虽然独中的高中歷史课本开始逐渐拋下以华人和中国为主的视角,但是种族主义的色彩仍然存在,也无法跳脱种族的思考框架。

另一方面,我们的社会始终以种族主义的角度来思考各种社会、政治与经济问题,这种思考方法也不断地在家庭和所属社群中复製。因此,我们即使时至今日,仍然无法脱离种族主义的思考。

我们对过去的解读,不但反映了我们对现今状况的理解,同时这些过去的解读也不断塑造我们的未来。由於种族主义的思考方式,使得我们认为马来西亚经济政策是种族主义,而忘了这些政策並不真的建立在种族上,而是朋党(华人朋党比一般马来人有更多更好的经济机会和利益)。

多方面看待歷史

在思考政治时,我们也是从种族出发,认为一个政治联盟必须涵盖大部分种族才行。我们忘记了,政治分界也可以从阶级出发,或者从自由/保守等政治立场出发,而种族只是选择之一。但是我们的种族思维让我们认为只有这一种分类方式,而忘记我们思考未来政治的变化时,可以从阶级或者政治理念来思考。

要如何脱去我们思维上,名叫「种族」的枷锁,让我们下一代不再深受其害?也许我们应该要做的,是从歷史教育下手,改变诉说过去的方法开始。

王明珂老师在《反思史学与史学反思:文本与表徵分析》的前言中说了一个很有趣的故事。他说,一般的美国史会这样说:英国人乘坐「五月花號」来到美国这片土地,建立了东岸13个州,然后征服了印第安人,隨后才来的非洲人与亚洲人则成为了新移民。但是这段过去也可这样解读:美国这土地上有许多部落互相爭战,他们有些是欧洲移民后裔,有些则是印第安人的后裔。隨后来到这土地上的亚非移民,则改变了这一状况……

也许不必如此大幅度的改变,只要大马歷史课本公平对待每个出现在马来西亚这片土地上的种族,以及让学生瞭解,我们今日在歷史课本上所读到的歷史,只是对过去的解读方法之一。同时也告诉学生,我们所读到的歷史,到底是如何形成的?背后所含的立场与思维又是什么?在告诉学生一个版本的时候,也告诉他们要如何打造另一种版本的方法。让他们不但有鱼吃,而且知道应该如何捕鱼。

又或者,也可以从无知之幕的方式去思考。假设说,你不知道你是什么种族,那么你会如何编写歷史?在这样的情况下,人们虽然不免仍然有立场,但是会从较为公正与公平的角度来撰写歷史。

放弃过去的思维是件非常难的事情。首先必须意识到自己的思考方式有问题,才有改变的可能。但是如果我们对於过去六十年来的种族思维仍然放不下,它將继续陪伴我们渡过下一个六十年,然后让种族主义的思维与政策所造成的悲剧,继续困扰著我们。

Richard Malanjum takes his oath as new CJ
Hafiz Yatim  |  Published: 11 Jul 2018, 9:45 pm  |  Modified: 11 Jul 2018, 11:45 pm

A+      A-

Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Richard Malanjum took his oath of office as the new chief justice tonight.

He is the first person from the Borneo states to be appointed to the highest judicial post in the country.

Chief Judge of Malaya Ahmad Ma'arop has been elevated to the post of Court of Appeal president.

They were sworn in before the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V.

Meanwhile, Justice Zaharah Ibrahim will replace Justice Ahmad as the Chief Judge of Malaya, and Justice David Wong Dak Wah will be the new Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak.

Chief Justice Md Raus Sharif and Court of Appeal president Zulkefli Ahmad Makinudin, who are supposed to retire on July 31, had been asked to vacate their post effective today, according to a source.

This came after as the Malay rulers had their conference beginning today.

Justice Malanjum, 65, is the first from the Kadazandusun community in Sabah to be appointed as the Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak and he was the youngest to be elevated to the Federal Court in 2005 at the age of 52.

He will reach the retirement age of 66 in October this year but his term can be extended for another six months, until April next year.

At present, Malanjum is the most senior Federal Court judge.

Earlier today, he downplayed speculation of him being nominated as the next chief justice.

Second female judge as CJM

Justice Ahmad, 65, who hails from Malacca, was appointed a judicial commissioner in 2000. He was elevated to the Court of Appeal in 2007 and then promoted to the Federal Court in 2011.

Last year, he became the Chief Judge of Malaya.

Justice Zaharah, 65, is the second woman to hold the post of Chief Judge of Malaya, after Siti Norma Yaakob.

She was appointed as judicial commissioner of the High Court in 2004, elevated to the Court of Appeal in 2010 and then to the apex court in 2015.

Wong, 64, from Sarawak, was appointed as a judicial commissioner at the Kuching High Court in 2005.

He was then elevated to the Court of Appeal in 2013 and became a Federal Court judge earlier this year.
