Perak MB and his "green fingers"

FMT - Perak benarkan roboh sekatan Asli Gerik kerana bina tanpa kebenaran (extracts)

UMNO atau Pribumi?
Ta'apa, kedua2 sama juga 

PETALING JAYA: Kerajaan Perak membenarkan pihak berkuasa merobohkan sekatan yang dibina Orang Asli Kampung Tasik Cunex di Gerik atas alasan ia dibina tanpa kebenaran di tanah kerajaan negeri, kata Ahmad Faizal Azumu.

Pembalakan kaedah ‘cuci mangkuk’ jejas teruk pendapatan Orang Asli Gua Musang

Menteri Besar Perak itu berkata, keputusan itu dibuat selaras peruntukan undang-undang dan operasi merobohkan sekatan itu dijalankan secara aman tanpa sebarang kejadian tidak diingini hari ini.

mana dia?

mengapa sangat diam tentang hal ini?

Beliau turut menafikan aktiviti pembalakan di Gerik dijalankan secara “cuci mangkuk”.

“Untuk makluman, semua aktiviti pembalakan yang diluluskan dijalankan secara lestari, di mana hanya pokok-pokok yang mengikut piawaian dibenarkan ditebang melalui kaedah ‘tagging’

"tree-loving" Perak MB Ahmad Faizal Azumu

he gave a new RM2 company logging rights to 400 hectres of forest reserve land

Kampar MP (DAP) Thomas Su told FMT that the state government should clarify a letter which went viral recently, that a company was awarded the concession by the Perak Forest Resources Committee in December 2018

This was a mere five months after it was formed with a paid-up capital of only RM2 following the 14th general election, he said

The company’s concession is allegedly for the development of 400ha of forests for plantations in the Kledang Saiong and Bukit Kinta reserves

“How is it that this RM2 company can receive this concession for 50 years?” Su asked, adding that the letter did not go into detail about what the company is allowed to do in its development.

“The menteri besar (Ahmad Faizal Azumu) was asked about this and he said he needs time to verify it, that is why I want MACC to investigate.”

Bernama had reported Faizal as saying that he needed to check the veracity of the letter issued by the Perak Forestry Department.

FMT has also contacted Faizal for comment and is awaiting a response.

From MM Online:

Thomas Su questioned how a company with a paid up capital of RM2 could be given a 400-hectare concession just approximately five months after it was set up.

“The company was established on July 26 after the 14th general election and it was given a total of 400 hectare land for forest farm development (pembangunan ladang hutan) on December 14 at Kledang Saiong and Bukit Kinta Forest Reserve,” he said today after lodging a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over the matter.

“This is wrong as the Mentri Besar had said the Pakatan Harapan government would suspend all logging activities but now this is happening,” he said, questioning how a five-month-old company with no profile record obtain 400 hectare land in the forest.

“We want to know why the company was chosen and why not other companies,” he added, noting that if forest reserves are constantly being degazetted, Perak would end up with no more forest reserves.

Su also said after the approval letter became viral online, he received calls from farmers in his constituency who had been working on state land.

“They have been working on the land for generations and applications for land being rejected but a five-month-old company can easily obtain land,” he said.

As the new government, Su said the Perak Pakatan Harapan government should not follow the Barisan Nasional practice of giving out land indiscriminately.

“Even if it was degazetted during BN time, the current government can gazette it back,” he said, urging the Mentri Besar to cancel the approval immediately.

On February 6, Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) raised the alarm of suspicious land clearing activities at Kledang Hill, that is part of the Kledang-Saiong Forest Reserve.

Perak Forestry Department director Datuk Mohamed Zin Yusop had said that the Mentri Besar Incorporated (MB Inc) owned the parcel and it has been degazetted as part of the forest reserve.

Mentri Besar Incorporated (MB Inc) Chief Executive Officer Anuar Zainal Abidin later confirmed that the land clearing near the iconic Kledang hill is indeed illegal encroachment for the purpose of oil palm plantation.

MB Azumu had boasted to reporters, “However, I have explained about this matter in the exco meeting and I believe they are clear over the procedure now.”

However Aziz Bari who is Perak Education, Science, Environment, Green Technology and Information Committee chairman retorted that contrary to what the MB said, the state exco did NOT discuss logging activity near the Orang Asli settlement in Kampung Tasik Cunex, Gerik.

What kind of MB is Azumu to tok-kok? 

Meanwhile, FMT reported:

The Malaysian Timber Industry Board (MTIB) has denied that it is cooperating with the company involved in the forest plantation project at the Kledang Saiong and Bukit Kinta forest reserves in Perak.

Its chairman, Wong Tack, said the use of permits for the 400ha forest plantation project at the two forest reserves was approved on Dec 14, 2018, and given to a company under the authority of the Perak Forestry Department and not MTIB or its subsidiary, Forest Plantation Sdn Bhd (FPDSB).

“The management of the company has no links with MTIB, had never been in contact with MTIB, and had no intentions to cooperate on the Forest Plantation Project under the Forest Plantation Development Programme managed by FPDSB,” he said in a statement today.

He was responding to Perak Menteri Besar Ahmad Faizal Azumu’s statement on the board’s involvement in the project during a media briefing on Feb 12.

That's Pribumi's Azumu and his story-telling, your Pribumi Party Perak MB.


  1. Wakakakakakakaka

    "Making Hay while the Sun shines". It's called Ketuanan PPBM in PH which is their right and their slogan of "By Hook or by Crook" to have enough Moolah and positions to win the next GE15.

    Guess PPBM forgot to share share in the Muhibbah spirit whereas UMNO did throw some crumbs to their other partners to keep them quiet.
