捍卫苏丹街工委会要求民意代表在国会监督苏丹街征地事件 An Appeal to MPs To Monitor Jalan Sultan MRT Issue by PJSC

The KVMRT project to be built underground along Jalan Sultan has affected 34 shoplots which have immense historical and heritage value. There was a huge public outcry on the manner in which the land acquisition was carried out in a haphazard and non-transparent manner.
众所周知,捷运公司计划在吉隆坡苏丹街地底兴建车站,征用地面三十四家老店,引发社会各界对吉隆坡历史及文化遗产的保护意识。

Since the “Preservation of Jalan Sultan Committee”(PJSC) started its campaign in September 2011, it has worked with various communities to create awareness. Many activities from humanities perspective were organized and have gathered overwhelming responses from the public. The PJSC has also met with a number of key people including the Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri, the Minister in the PM’s Department, Dato’ Azhar Abdul Hamid, the CEO of the MRT Corp. The PJSC expressed their desire to preserve KL’s history and cultural heritage, at the same time objecting to MRT Corp for not considering a realignment proposed by the PJSC that would minimize the construction impact on the century-old precious heritage and save costs. It is to be noted that the Warisan Merdeka is not even reflected in the 2010 KL Master Development Plan.
本运动自2011年9月起,积极与在地社区串联,展开一系列的自力救济及文化庆祝活动,唤起公民社会的热烈回响。同时,也多次会见相关单位负责人,包括首相纳吉、首相署部长纳兹里、捷运公司执行长阿兹哈,严正表达捍卫百年社区、反对征地建造捷运的立场。

We have also facilitated a “Public Consultation” meeting on 7 July 2012 inviting MRT Corp, KL City Hall, PM’s Department, Ministry of Information Communications and Culture, and Ministry of Tourism to this dialogue with the public. Regrettably, none of those invited were present during the public consultation. This clearly demonstrated the non-compromising stand of the relevant authorities and denied the public an opportunity to voice-out their objections on the said project.
我们也在今年2012年7月7日推动“公共谘询会议”,要求捷运公司、吉隆坡市政府、首相署、文化部、旅游部等相关单位代表出席与民对话,唯未获回应。

We have exhausted all channels to seek a dialogue and a redress with all relevant departments / authorities, It is with regret that the demolishing works have bulldozed in and works carried out around the clock in bringing down the valuable historical buildings. The sites of these historical buildings such as the Klang bus station, Plaza Warisan and Uda Ocean have been torn down, what is remaining is a piece of vacant land to be replaced by modern structures.
捷运公司的报告里宣称有关规划路线,已是最后定案,其衔接“独立遗产”摩天大楼之用意,已昭然若揭。但是,我们必须指出,这项重大计划至今从未真正谘询民意。我们穷尽一切管道,与行政部门反映意见,虽获善意对待,遗憾的是,拆除工程仍不分昼夜进行,历史悠久的旧吧生车站、宏愿广场和奥盛超市,日前经已被夷为平地。

With this latest update, the PJSC would like to request the kindness of all opposition MPs to monitor the progress of the land acquisition issue in relation to the MRT construction along Jalan Sultan.
因此,我们今天来到国会大厦向在野党议员汇报“捍卫苏丹街运动”之最新进展,要求在野党的民意代表在国会殿堂监督苏丹街捷运征地事件。

The MRT construction along Jalan Sultan, being a part of the country’s biggest infrastructure project, was allowed to proceed despite the following shortcomings that have NOT been addressed:
在此,我们重申捍委会的诉求:一、要求捷运公司:

1.    No Social Impact Studies – the impact from the MRT construction and the Warisan Merdeka will have drastic impact on the history, cultural heritage in Jalan Sultan and its vicinity, including impacting many schools in this area. 进行公共谘询会议,接受民意质询,直面社会大众及利益相关者。
2.    No Public Consultation – stakeholders have no knowledge of any public consultation or engagements with the community. 公开完整的土地勘测报告。
3.    Incomplete Soil Test Report  – contradictory soil conditions were reported by Prasarana and MRT Corp that is crucial for the safety of the shop houses. 进行社会冲击评估报告。

We appeal to the Prime Minister to: 二、要求首相纳吉:

1.    To suspend the MRT project in Jalan Sultan and order MRT Corp to revert to the drawing board and review the alignment. 暂停位于苏丹街的捷运工程,要求捷运公司重新审核路线图与改道建议。
2.    To uphold the 1-Malaysia slogan “People First, Performance Now” and not to ignore the objections of the people on the MRT project. 重视民间反对意见,真正做到以民为先。
3.    To honor the PM’s promise to preserve the historical buildings and withdraw the gazette with immediate effect.  落实不征地、捍卫历史文化遗产之承诺,立即取消征地宪报。
4.    To offer an explanation to the stakeholders and the public for fixing the Jalan Sultan alignment solely to serve the Warisan Merdeka and refusal to consider a realignment despite public objections.  解释苏丹街捷运路线规划与“独立遗产”摩天大楼之因果关系。

The House of Parliament is an important mechanism for check and balance. We sincerely request all MPs from both the ruling and opposition to perform to serve the people’s needs, speak for the rakyat, express the views of the Rakyat and operate with integrity and stop abuse of power.
国会是监督与制衡行政机关的重要机制,我们要求朝野民意代表克尽已责,为民喉舌,将苏丹街捷运征地事件乃至“独立遗产”摩天大楼计划,防止任何可能衍生的弊端。
