KUALA TERENGGANU: Kerajaan negeri merancang mewujudkan galeri bagi menempatkan maklumat berkaitan sejarah dan tokoh besar yang berasal dari Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Seberang Takir.

Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Pelajaran, Pengajian Tinggi, Sains, Teknologi dan Sumber Manusia negeri, Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman, berkata DUN Seberang Takir mempunyai latar belakang sejarah yang menarik dan sudah melahirkan ramai tokoh hebat dalam pelbagai bidang, termasuk perniagaan, seni dan pendidikan.

Beliau yang juga Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (Adun) Seberang Takir berkata, galeri itu akan berfungsi sebagai tempat rujukan bukan saja untuk pelajar dan ahli sejarah, tetapi juga kepada orang ramai yang berminat mengkaji dan mengetahui susur galur sejarah DUN berkenaan.

“Sebenarnya impian untuk membina galeri ini sudah lama dan menjadi harapan saya untuk mewujudkannya (galeri) di DUN sendiri kerana kita sedia maklum ramai tokoh hebat dilahirkan di sini.

“Nama seperti Tan Sri Ibrahim Fikri, penyair JM Aziz, Senator Rashid Ngah, Allahyarham Wan Shamsuddin Wan Mamat bukan lagi asing bagi kita dan mereka menunjukkan kehebatan dalam bidang masing-masing.

“Justeru, melalui pendedahan ini, kita berharap pelajar akan mengambil contoh dan lebih ramai manusia hebat akan lahir selepas ini,” katanya selepas merasmikan Program Motivasi Pelajar di Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Kompleks Seberang Takir, di sini, semalam.

Seramai 500 pelajar tingkatan tiga, empat dan lima dari beberapa sekolah menengah di DUN Seberang Takir menyertai program motivasi yang ditaja Yayasan Terengganu (YT) dan dikendalikan dua penceramah terkenal iaitu Datuk Dr Fadzillah Khamsah dan Dr Tengku Ismadi Tengku Mohamad yang juga berasal dari Seberang Takir.

Hadir sama, Pengarah YT, Md Kamaru Al Amin Ismail.

Terdahulu, beliau turut menerima cek sebanyak RM10,000 yang disampaikan oleh Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif (CEO) Institut Kemahiran Showme sebagai sumbangan bagi membiayai program motivasi pelajar pada masa akan datang.

Ahmad Razif berkata, galeri itu akan ditempatkan di satu bahagian Masjid Seberang Takir yang akan dibina dengan anggaran kos antara RM5 juta hingga RM6 juta pada tahun depan.

“Masjid lama yang diasaskan oleh Tan Sri Ibrahim Fikri akan dirobohkan dan diganti dengan masjid baru. Jadi kita akan sedia satu ruang dalam masjid itu untuk dijadikan galeri.

“Selain itu, tempat hentian bot penambang untuk ke Kuala Terengganu dan kios perniagaan turut dibina berdekatan masjid dan dijangka siap dalam tempoh dua bulan lagi.

“Dengan pelbagai projek pembangunan yang sedang dan akan dilaksanakan, kita harap DUN Seberang Takir muncul sebagai destinasi pelancongan terkemuka pada masa akan datang,” katanya.

KUALA TERENGGANU 15 Julai (Utusan Malaysia)- Menteri Besar, Datuk Ahmad Said hari ini menafikan spekulasi kononnya akan berlaku rombakan Ahli Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri (Exco).

“Saya tidak pernah merancang untuk merombak kedudukan Exco sedia ada malah berpuas hati dengan prestasi yang mereka tunjukkan.

“Bagaimana kita hendak rombak Exco yang baru pegang jawatan dua tahun, kita tidak boleh menilai prestasi mereka berdasarkan tempoh ini,” katanya selepas mempengerusi mesyuarat Exco di Wisma Darul Iman di sini hari ini.

Beliau mengulas khabar angin akan berlaku rombakan Exco negeri ekoran terdapat anggotanya yang gagal melaksanakan tugas dengan baik.

Ahmad berkata, prestasi ahli-ahli Exco akan dinilai selepas satu penggal melaksanakan tugas masing-masing.

“Kita tidak boleh menilainya sekarang kerana tahun pertama adalah tahun bulan madu, tahun kedua adalah tahun perancangan. Jadi tidak adil kita menilai dalam tempoh ini,” ujarnya.

Ahmad berkata, beliau memberi peluang selama satu penggal untuk melaksanakan tugas sebelum melihat sejauh mana prestasi ahli Exco terbabit.

KUALA TERENGGANU (Sinar Harian) – Pas Terengganu menyifatkan kejadian runtuhan bumbung Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin, Selasa lalu disebabkan sikap angkuh pemimpin kerajaan Barisan Nasional (BN) yang enggan mengambil perhatian terhadap pandangan dan idea pembangkang meskipun ia berasas.

:Timbalan Ketua Penerangan Pas Terengganu, Dr Alias Razak yang meluahkan rasa kesal berhubung kejadian itu berkata, beliau sendiri pernah membangkitkan isu tahap keselamatan stadium berkenaan ketika persidangan Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN), Mei tahun lalu.

:Menurut beliau, pembangkang mempersoalkan perkara itu apabila melihat masih ada pekerja berada di atas bumbung stadium pada saat-saat akhir, sehari sebelum majlis perasmian dilakukan.

:Bagaimanapun katanya, Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Kemudahan Awam Negeri, Yahya Khatib Mohamad ketika memberi jawapan kepada pertanyaannya, yakin bahawa ia selamat digunakan.:

:“Selain melihat pekerja masih lagi bekerja pada saat-saat akhir, keadaan bumbung juga nampak ‘lendik’ (kurang kukuh) menyebabkan saya bertanyakan keadaan stadium ini kepada kerajaan pada sidang DUN tahun lalu.

:“Stadium ini berada di dalam kawasan saya, jadi saya memang tahu keadaannya namun kerajaan langsung tidak peduli teguran saya,” katanya yang juga Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Bukit Tunggal kepada Sinar Harian, semalam.

:Selasa lalu, bumbung Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin di Kompleks Sukan Negeri, Gong Badak runtuh menyebabkan 60 peratus strukturnya musnah.

:Stadium yang menjadi lokasi utama temasya Sukan Malaysia (Sukma) baru disiapkan setahun lalu mampu memuatkan 50,000 penonton dan merupakan stadium terbesar di Pantai Timur.

:Menurut Dr Alias, kerajaan se-lalu mengambil mudah apa yang pihak pembangkang suarakan di dalam sidang DUN, padahal ia demi kepentingan bersama terutama rakyat.

:“Bagaimana sekiranya ketika kejadian itu berlaku ada aktiviti dijalankan di dalam stadium itu,” katanya.

:Beliau berkata, kejadian malang itu juga menjadi pengajaran terbaik kepada kerajaan BN pada masa akan datang agar tidak sekali-kali membuat kerja sambil lewa demi mengejar nama dan kemasyhuran hingga sanggup memperjudikan nyawa rakyat.

:“Jika tidak sempat siap, kita kena terima hakikat jangan paksa siapkan dengan ala kadar tanpa kelulusan selain tidak ada Sijil Layak Menduduki (CF) sebab banyak nyawa akan terkorban nanti dan sekarang ia sudah berlaku,” katanya.

Datuk Dr Ahmad Ramzi Mohammad Zubir had three laptops seized from him
Datuk Dr Ahmad Ramzi Mohammad Zubir had three laptops seized from him

KUALA TERENGGANU (NST): Datuk Dr Ahmad Ramzi Mohammad Zubir, who was arrested on Tuesday in connection with the text message death threats sent to three assemblymen last month, was released on RM50,000 police bail yesterday.

He was tightlipped about the incident and his only words to reporters waiting in front of the Kuala Terengganu police station were: “I have nothing to say. Thank you.”

State police deputy chief SAC II Hamzah Mohd Jamil said police seized a third laptop from Ramzi’s house in Kota Damansara, Selangor, early yesterday.

Ramzi, who is the political secretary to former Terengganu menteri besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, was arrested at an undisclosed location a day after a warrant was issued after he failed to turn up for questioning in connection with the sending of text messages to the assemblymen last month.

Police seized two laptops and a modem from his house in Kampung Kubang Parit here on Monday and have collected evidence allegedly linking him to the SMSes.
Ramzi is being investigated for criminal intimidation by an anonymous communication, defamation and offences under the Multimedia and Communications Act 1998.

The SMS threat took centre stage last month amid a political tug of war between embattled Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said and 10 assemblymen aligned to Idris.

Three assemblymen lodged police reports after receiving the SMS threats on April 14.

The three said the SMSes were sent by Ahmad’s senior private secretary, Wan Ahmad Wan Muda, who allegedly told them not to proceed with a rumoured plan to table a motion of no-confidence against Ahmad at the state assembly sitting. Police later absolved Wan Ahmad of any involvement.

On April 25, a 31-year-old clerk from Seri Kembangan, Selangor, was arrested at his house, after he was suspected of sending the SMSes.

KUALA TERENGGANU (Harian Metro): Polis Terengganu menahan bekas setiausaha politik kepada bekas Menteri Besar Terengganu, Datuk Dr Ahmad Ramzi Mohamad Zubir jam 8.30 pagi, semalam.

Difahamkan, beliau ditahan di sebuah hotel selepas tempoh tiga hari diberikan polis terhadapnya untuk hadir memberi keterangan sejak Jumaat lalu berakhir.

Timbalan Ketua Polis negeri, Senior Asisten Komisioner II Hamzah Mohd Jamil, berkata tangkapan dibuat bagi melengkapkan kertas siasatan kes SMS ugutan bunuh membabitkan tiga Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (Adun) Barisan Nasional (BN) Terengganu pada 13 Mac lalu.

Menurutnya, polis turut merampas dua komputer riba dan sebuah modem dari rumah beliau di Kampung Kubang Parit kira-kira jam 3 petang kelmarin menggunakan waran geledah.

Katanya, Dr Ahmad Ramzi kini ditahan di Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen (IPK) negeri untuk siasatan lanjut dan akan direman mengikut Seksyen 117 Kanun Acara Jenayah jika siasatan tidak dapat dilengkapkan dalam tempoh 24 jam

“Polis akan menyiasat kes itu mengikut Seksyen 507 Kanun Keseksaan bagi kesalahan ugutan jenayah, Seksyen 500 Kanun Keseksaan bagi kesalahan memfitnah serta Seksyen 233 Akta Telekomunikasi dan Multimedia 1998 kerana penggunaan tidak wajar kemudahan rangkaian dan perkhidmatan rangkaian,” katanya di IPK Terengganu, semalam.

Hadir sama Timbalan Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah negeri, Superintendan K Manoharan.

Menurutnya, sebaik siasatan lengkap, polis akan merujuk kertas siasatan kes itu ke pejabat Timbalan Pendakwa Raya untuk mendapat arahan lanjut termasuk mendakwa Dr Ahmad Ramzi.

Katanya, polis mempunyai bukti menunjukkan beliau terbabit dalam kes itu dan siasatan dijangka selesai dalam minggu ini bergantung kepada kerjasama diberikan.

Beliau berkata, siasatan dibuat setakat ini mendapati SMS ugutan bunuh diterima tiga Adun BN terbabit iaitu Datuk Rosol Wahid (Ajil), Abdul Halim Jusoh (Permaisuri) dan Mohd Ariffin Abdullah (Paka) pada 13 April lalu bukan dihantar menerusi telefon bimbit milik Setiausaha Sulit Kanan kepada Menteri Besar.

Pada 23 April lalu, polis menahan seorang kerani berusia 31 tahun yang bekerja di sebuah syarikat swasta di Bandar Baru Bangi, Selangor serta merampas peralatan termasuk komputer peribadi lelaki itu digunakan untuk menghantar SMS berkenaan.

Polis sudah menubuhkan satu pasukan khas menyiasat kes penyebaran SMS ugutan itu bagi mengelak kekeliruan dalam kalangan orang awam.

Sementara itu, di luar bangunan IPK, beberapa penyokong Dr Ahmad Ramzi kelihatan tenang berkumpul bagi memberikan sokongan kepadanya.

KUALA TERENGGANU (The Star): Police arrested Datuk Dr Ahmad Ramzi Mohamad Zubir, the political secretary to former Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, on Tuesday to assist investigations into the threatening text message received by three Barisan Nasional assemblymen last month.

Deputy state police chief SAC II Hamzah Mohd Jamil said with Ahmad Ramzi’s arrest, police believed they have settled about 95 per cent of the case.

Police also seized two laptop computers and a modem from Ahmad Ramzi’s home in Kampung Kubang Parit, near here, at 3pm Tuesday.

“This is not an easy case as it involves technical matters. But we have acted to solve the case as soon as possible,” he said.

Police had been looking for Ahmad Ramzi as he was among the individuals who had given media statements regarding the death threat contained in the text message received by Ajil assemblyman Datuk Rosol Wahid, Abdul Halim Jusoh (Permaisuri) and Zakaria Abdullah (Paka) on April 13.

This prompted 10 Barisan assemblymen, including the three who received the message, to stay away from the Terengganu state assembly sitting on April 14.

Hamzah said, Ahmad Ramzi, who was a Barisan candidate in the 12th general election, was being held at the Terengganu police headquarters and would be remanded if the investigations could not be completed within 24 hours.

Police were investigating the case under Section 507 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation and Section 500 of the same law for defamation.

Ahmad Ramzi is also being investigated under the Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1988 for improper use of network services. – Bernama

KUALA TERENGGANU, Mon (NST):

Datuk Dr Ahmad Ramzi Mohammad, the political secretary to former Terengganu Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, is now wanted by police.

Police obtained today a warrant of arrest for the 42-year-old after he failed to take up their offfer to turn up for questioning within 72 hours.

Terengganu police had given him three days from Friday to show up or face arrest so that he can be interviewed in connection with the SMS death threats that were sent to three assemblymen last month.

Terengganu police deputy chief SAC II Hamzah Mohd Jamil said police have also issued an alert to the Immigration Department to ensure that Zamri does not leave the country.

Interpol have also been informed to trace Ahmad Ramzi’s whereabouts.
“Those with information about him should call the nearest police station as Ramzi’s cooperation is very much needed for this case,” he told reporters.

The SMS threat issue took centre stage last month amid a political tug of war between embattled Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said and at least 10 state assembleymen aligned to to Idris.

The three assemblymen lodged police reports shortly after receiving the SMS threats.

Ramzi, who is now Idris’ special officer, was also at the police station grounds when they lodged the reports.

In their reports, the three assemblymen said the SMSes were believed to have been sent by Ahmad’s senior private secretary , Wan Ahmad Wan Muda, who allegedly told them not to proceed with a rumoured plan to table a motion of no-confidence against Ahmad at the state assembly sitting.

The three and the seven other ‘rebels’, citing security concerns, boycotted the sitting next day and Wan Ahmad also lodged a police report on the matter next day.

Police later absolved him (Wan Ahmad) of any involvement. Several days later a 31-year-old clerk from Seri Kembangan was arrested at his house, suspected of being the SMS sender.

Ahmad Ramzi went missing a day after the clerk was arrested.

The case is being investigated under Section 507 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation by annonymous communication.

Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said reading an SMS shown by his political secretary Wan Ahmad Nizan Abdul Hamid  at the state legislature yesterday.
Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said reading an SMS shown by his political secretary Wan Ahmad Nizan Abdul Hamid at the state legislature yesterday.

KUALA TERENGGANU (The New Straits Times): For a captain whose boat is being rocked, Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said was his usual composed and smiling self when he faced the press yesterday.

The press met him twice, once at the lunch break and when he was leaving the state assembly sitting, but on both occasions he refused to open up.

In the first encounter, Ahmad said he had no idea why 10 BN assemblymen failed to turn up at the assembly.

Much to reporters’ surprise, he said he did not know that three of them had lodged police reports yesterday after receiving death threats by SMS.

“I just got back from Kemaman. I do not know anything about the SMS and also why they did not attend.”
However, Ahmad said he was not surprised as it was normal for politicians to absent themselves at times.

Asked if he would contact them for an explanation, he replied: “I don’t think so.”

The menteri besar, who is state Umno liaison chief, said he would not persuade them to attend the final day of the sitting today.

On claims by the three assemblymen that one of his senior officials had allegedly sent the SMS, he declined to comment, saying that the matter was a police case.

When stopped by reporters as he was about to leave in the afternoon, he said he had no idea that Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin wanted to meet him to clear the air.

KUALA TERENGGANU (The Star): A political storm is brewing in Terengganu after 10 Barisan Nasional assemblymen stayed away from the second sitting of the State Assembly yesterday.

The official reason given was that they feared for their safety after three of them claimed to have received death threats via SMS.

Unoccupied: Backbencher Nawi Mohamad (BN – Hulu Besut) sitting among the empty chairs as 10 of his colleagues decided to stay away from the State Assembly sitting yesterday. On the right are exco members Rozi Mamat (front) and Dr Abdul Rahman Mokhtar.

However, there were also suggestions that they were staging a boycott in apparent protest against the leadership of Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said.

In the past week, talk had been rife that the Barisan assemblymen would move a motion of no-confidence against Ahmad when the assembly convened on Monday.

Ahmad had earlier warned the assemblymen not to table such a motion against him as this could taint the image of the state Barisan.

He also threatened to sack those who defied his order.

State Backbenchers Club chairman Datuk Rosol Wahid said the 10 assemblymen – all backbenchers – decided to stay away from the assembly because of “safety factors” after alleged death threats were received yesterday morning.

“We are not boycotting the assembly. We decided to gather at a hotel because we are very afraid,” he said at the hotel.

He claimed that all 10 had applied for leave.

The three who claimed to have received death threats, said to have originated from Ahmad’s private secretary Wan Ahamad Wan Muda, were Rosol, Paka assemblyman Zakaria Ariffin and Permaisuri assemblyman Halim Jusoh.

Wan Ahamad later denied sending the SMS and lodged a police report at the state police headquarters.

One of the assemblymen, who declined to be named, however, said that there was a boycott of the assembly.

“The Mentri Besar should resign. We do not intend to table a motion of no-confidence against him at the assembly but he should get the message that he is not favoured by Barisan assemblymen,” he said.

Besides Rosol, Zakaria and Halim, the others who stayed away were Tepoh assemblyman Muhammad Ramli Noh, Mohd Zawawi Ismail (Kuala Berang), Datuk Din Adam (Bukit Besi), Alias Abdullah (Alor Limbat), Ramlan Ali (Jabi) and Mohd Pehimi Yusof (Kota Putera).

Muhammad Ramli later said that all 10 would attend the sitting today.

There are 13 backbenchers and 10 exco members, including Ahmad, in the assembly. The Opposition has eight members, all of them from PAS.

All Opposition members, including PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, were present.

Despite the boycott, the assembly, however, continued as usual.

Ahmad, when approached by reporters during a break, said he was shocked that the assemblymen had resorted to such action.

“I will contact them to find out why they did this. As Mentri Besar, it is my duty to find out the rationale of the 10 for doing this,” he said.

When asked about the death threats sent to three representatives via SMS, Ahmad said he had no knowledge of it.

Ahmad’s appointment as Mentri Besar after the 2008 general election was controversial from the beginning as it was not the original choice of the Barisan, which had chosen former mentri besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh.

Ahmad was, however, sworn in and then prime minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi later said that the Barisan would accept him as Mentri Besar.
