KUCHING: Asajaya is in need of the Village Extension Scheme as the area is developing rapidly.

Assistant Housing Minister Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, who is Asajaya assemblyman, called on the Land and Survey Department to consider extending the scheme for villages such as Kampung Sambir, second phase of Kampung Tambirat – the biggest village in Asajaya.

“In addition, a new bridge connecting Kampung Tambey and Kampung Baru warrants a Village Extension Scheme in the area too,” he said during a presentation of traditional village land titles and temporary occupation licences (TOLs) yesterday.

Abdul Karim said it is good to see many from the younger generation in the area have chosen to stay on in their villages with their parents, even if they work in the city.

“If they want to stay in Asajaya, they need space to build their own houses. We do not encourage them to build in existing traditional villages, so they need somewhere nearby to build their homes.

“Hence, the Village Extension Scheme is important in order to avoid congestion in the main villages,” he said.

He pointed out that the scheme is helping to fulfil the needs of villagers in Asajaya and hoped more villages would be involved.

Karim urges the government to convert TOL to permanent ownership





ASAJAYA: The government has been urged to look at the possibility of converting Temporary Occupation License (TOL) to permanent ownership.

Assistant Minister for Youth Development (Urban) and Assistant Minister for Housing Datuk Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said time has changed and there was a need to look at the policy of TOL.

He said that the government need to look at the policy and if possible, convert it to permanent title so that the land owners could use them for deposit to apply for loan to build their houses.

Abdul Karim, who is also Asajaya assemblyman said this at the presentation of Land Ownership Titles and Temporary Occupational License (TOL) for Asajaya district by Minister of Resource Planning and Environment II, Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah Ali Hassan at Asajaya Sports Complex here yesterday.

According to him, in this way the holders of TOL could make effort to build their houses.

He said the actual cost of constructing a house now is at least RM50,000 based on the estimated cost of building a PPRT house of Rumah Mesra Rakyat.

He said the requirement for TOL was that they must build houses on the land within five years and if they didn't the government had the right to take back the land.

Asajaya perlukan Skim Pembesaran Kampung: Karim

February 26, 2015


ASAJAYA: Skim Pembesaran Kampung di daerah ini sangat diperlukan dan penting dalam usaha meneruskan pembangunan semakin pesat, kata Menteri Muda Perumahan Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.

Jelasnya, pada masa kini, generasi muda lebih memilih tinggal berdekatan keluarga di kampung halaman meskipun terpaksa berulang-alik ke bandar raya Kuching untuk mencari rezeki.

“Sekiranya mereka memang berhasrat untuk tinggal di Asajaya, mereka memerlu-kan ruang dan kawasan membina rumah sendiri.

“Kita tidak menggalak mereka membina rumah sedia ada di kampung tradisi yang juga merupakan milik keluarga. Sebaliknya membina rumah lain berdekatan kediaman ibu bapa masing-masing.

“Ini antara sebab kenapa Skim Pembesaran Kampung sangat penting untuk penduduk selain mengelak kesesakan dan kepadatan penduduk kampung,” katanya yang juga merupakan Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Asajaya.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika berucap pada majlis penyampaian Surat Hak Milik Tanah Kampung Tradisi dan Lesen Pendudukan Sementara (TOL) di Kompleks Sukan Asajaya, di sini, semalam.

Beliau menambah, skim itu membantu memenuhi keperluan penduduk kampung di Asajaya selain berharap lebih banyak kampung di sekitarnya akan terlibat dalam skim berkenaan.

Ubat batuk 'dadah murah'


KETAGIH ... Ubat batuk dan selsema dikenal pasti sebagai 'dada murah' yang menjadi tumpuan penagih dadah kurang berkemampuan.

KUCHING: Ubat batuk dan selesema dikenalpasti sebagai 'dadah murah' yang menjadi tumpuan penagih dadah daripada kalangan orang kurang berkemampuan.

Pengerusi Dadah Malaysia (PEMADAM) Sarawak Datuk Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah mendedah perkara itu kerana, pengambilan dan pembelian kedua-dua ubat berkenaan dilakukan tanpa pengawasan yang ketat.

"Kedua-dua ubat ini boleh didapati dengan mudah di kedai-kedai ubat dan farmasi.

Orang kurang berkemampuan yang menjadi penagih tetapi tidak mampu membeli dadah seperti syabu, ganja, heroin sebagainya akan membeli ubat batuk dan selesema itu bagi melepaskan rasa ketagih.

"Ini kerana pengambilan ubat batuk dan selesema yang berlebihan boleh menyebabkan individu berkenaan berkhayal, seterusnya ketagih," tegasnya ketika dalam sidan media di sini, hari ini.

Menurut Karim, mestipun, 'keseronokkan dadah murah' tersebut agak kurang berbanding dadah lain, namun ia menjadi sumber dadah utama kepada penagih kurang berkemampuan.

"Sebenarnya, undang-undang memang dikenakan terhadap penjualan kedua-dua ubat berkenaan di pusat-pusat farmasi dan kedai ubat, namun ia tidak tegas dan terdapat juga pusat mengabaikan undang-undang berkenaan," jelasnya.

Sarawak among lowest states in drugs cases

February 25, 2015



KUCHING: Sarawak is one of the states in the country with the lowest drug cases, revealed State Narcotics Investigation Department head Supt Lukas Aket.

"In Sarawak, we are third or fourth lowest in drug cases, with Perlis the lowest. States with the highest cases are Selangor, Penang and Johor," he said told a press conference after attending a meeting organised by the National Association for the Prevention of Drugs (PEMADAM) at Imperial Hotel here, yesterday.

State PEMADAM chairman Datuk Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, who is also Assistant Minister of Housing, also attended the meeting.

Lukas said 5,237 cases of arrest for drug offences were made in Sarawak last year.

"We are aware of the changing trend of drugs from the more traditional drugs to designer drugs," he said.

Meanwhile during the meeting, Abdul Karim said the state PEMADAM had a 5-year strategic action plan to combat drug abuse in Sarawak.

"We will try to reach out to schools, institution of higher leaning, and also to parents.

Hapuskan dadah siber

February 25, 2015

PERANGI DADAH: Abdul Karim (dua kiri) menerima dokumen terima tugas daripada Sharifah Mordiah pada majlis tersebut.

KUCHING: Media sosial seperti Facebook (FB) didapati sebagai saluran terbaharu untuk menjual dan membeli dadah di Sarawak.

Menteri Muda Pembangunan Belia Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah berkata, kegiatan yang menyalahgunakan teknologi itu perlu dibanteras sebelum semakin parah dan menular dalam kalangan masyarakat.

“Kita mendapati ada indiividu yang menggunakan FB sebagai saluran menjual dan mendapatkan dadah.

“Tetapi setakat ini, ia belum di tahap bermaharajalela lagi kerana polis memantau rapi kegiatan tersebut,” ujarnya pada sidang media selepas majlis serah terima tugas Pengerusi Persatuan Mencegah Dadah Malaysia (PEMADAM) di sini, semalam.

Majlis itu menyaksikan Abdul Karim tampil sebagai Pengerusi PEMADAM Sarawak baharu bagi menggantikan Datuk Sharifah Mordiah Tuanku Fauzi yang telah menyandang jawatan itu hampir 30 tahun.

Turut hadir, Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Narkotik (JSJN) Sarawak Superintenden Lucas Aket dan Pengarah Agensi Anti Dadah Kebangsaan (AADK) Sarawak Wan Madihi Wan Salleh.

Abdul Karim turut menyeru sesiapa yang mempunyai maklumat mengenai aktiviti haram itu agar menghubungi pihak berkuasa.

Regulate sale of ‘poor man’s drugs’ to prevent abuse

February 25, 2015

Karim receives his official letter as Pemadam state chair from his predecessor Datuk Sharifah Mordiah Tuanku Fauzi. Lukas is at left while AADK state director Wan Madihi Wan Salleh is at third left.

KUCHING: The sale of ‘poor man’s drugs’ need to be regulated to prevent their abuse.

Newly-elected Malaysian Drug Prevention Association (Pemadam) state chair Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said this is because such substances are cheaper and easier to access than designer drugs.

“The government is actually looking at ways to control substance abuse. Other common forms of substance abuse are glue sniffing, which is quite rampant in Sarawak,” the Assistant Minister of Youth Development (Urban Areas) told reporters yesterday.

“I am not pointing fingers, but drug stores or pharmacies should not sell these substances (such as Nospan and cough medicine) to anyone without a doctor’s diagnosis letter or sell it in a very large quantity.”

Nospan (dextromethorphan HBr) and cough medicines, which contain codeine or promethazine, are widely sold at pharmacies, but can cause hallucinations if abused through excessive use.

Through the abuse of these substances, users are more likely to progress to an advanced stage of drug experimentation and addiction on designer drugs such as ecstasy, syabu, methamphetamine and Erimin-5.

Karim pointed out that the enactment of such regulations comes under the federal government.

PBB leaders unfazed by the number of seats DAP wants to contest in the coming election

February 23, 2015



Datuk Dr Stephen Rundi
SIBU: Democratic Action Party (DAP) can go for any number of seats to contest this coming state election but voters will have the final say on which party to vote, said state BN secretary-general Datuk Dr Stephen Rundi.

Dr Rundi, who is also Assistant Minister of Public Utilities (Electricity and Telecommunications), was asked for his view on the announcement by DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen that DAP would contest in at least 30 seats in the coming state polls.

Chong had said the move was to reduce the burden of its Pakatan Rakyat ally, PKR, in contesting in some rural and semi-urban areas. He also said the 30 seats did not include the proposed new seats.

“Well, any party can set their targets as they wish whether they can win or not. It is the voters who decide who they want to represent and serve them,” Dr Rundi told The Borneo Post yesterday.

On the other hand, PBB Supreme Council member Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said Chong’s announcement was expected, judging by the strength and support DAP received during the last state and parliamentary elections.

“And I am not surprised that DAP would vie for more seats to contest in the next state election. They are very organised and focused in their preparation,” he said.

“Whether they can win or not depends on the people and voters. I expect them to be a strong force especially in the urban areas as the BN party expected to contest in these areas are still ‘busy’ among themselves,” added the Assistant Minister of Youth Development and Asajaya assemblyman.

Karim memberitahu beliau berasa gembira dapat berkunjung bersama rakan seperti Chong semasa musim perayaan dan seronok dapat berbual dengan Chong serta bapanya, Chong Siew Chiang yang juga Pengasas DAP Sarawak.

Karim yang juga Menteri Muda Perumahan berkata, sememangnya mereka mempunyai ideologi politik yang berbeza namun ia tidak bermakna mereka bermusuh.

Sementara itu, Chong ketika ditemui berkata, Karim tetap rakannya walaupun mempunyai perbezaan dari segi politik masing-masing.


Abdul Karim makes surprise visit at Chong’s open house

February 21, 2015




KUCHING: Assistant Minister of Housing Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah was a ‘surprise’ visitor at the Chinese New Year open house hosted by state DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen on Thursday.

Media personnel at Chong’s house at that time were least expecting the visit of Abdul Karim, since both Chong and him were known for their ‘verbal spat’ in the press and at the State Legislative Assembly.

Abdul Karim, when interviewed later, said he felt good visiting friends like Chong and enjoyed a good chat with Chong and his father, state DAP founder Chong Siew Chiang, during the goodwill visit.

“Well, we might be on opposite sides of the bench and have different political ideologies but that does not mean that we are enemies. I feel good visiting friends like YB Chong.

“I had a good chat with YB Chong and his father during the visit and I believe this visitation during festive events will definitely foster better understanding and goodwill between us,” said Abdul Karim, also Assistant Minister of Social Development (Urban Youth) and PBB supreme council member.

Abdul Karim said Chong, on the other hand, also visited his Hari Raya open house over the past few years.

Meanwhile, Chong said both he and Abdul Karim were still friends despite their different political leaning. “Friends are friends. We are still friends since I have been in the DUN (State Legislative Assembly).”

Karim: More GIATMARA centres to be set up


Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah (right) in a light moment with chairman of GIATMARA Malaysia Dato’ Dr Haji Jaujan bin Sambakong (centre) as his deputy during the visit.
KUCHING: Youth development in rural areas can be improved through the setting up of GIATMARA skills centre in every district in the state.

“By acquiring the relevant skills in these centres, youths in the rural areas can improve their living standard by getting empoyed to reduce the poverty rate. 

“The government is committed in helping the youths, especially those in the rural areas to further their studies. Hence, we encourage those with potentials to learn at our skills centres to prepare them for the future,” said Assistant Minister of Youth Development Datuk Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah during a press conference after a visit by a delegation led by chairman of GIATMARA Malaysia Dr Haji Jaujan bin Haji Sambakong to his office at Wisma Sultan Tengah, PetraJaya near here yesterday.

According to Abdul Karim, the sudden focus on the development of youth and setting up of more skills centres in the state was because the state government intended to increase skilled manpower to meet the job demands in the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE).

“We find that there are still many youths in rural areas having very little exposure to continue their studies in the field of skills development compared to those in urban areas.

“Hence, GIATMARA must and should play its role in guiding these youths in the rural areas so that they will not left out in the state’s progress and development in technology and at the same time equipping them with the relevant skills.

Never violate privacy of hospital patients — Abdul Karim



KUCHING: Assistant Minister of Housing Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah has advised both hospital personnel and visitors to be more courteous and respectful when it comes to the privacy of patients.

Such call has come in response to a recent case where a staff member of Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) is suspected of taking and distributing obscene photos of patients there.

“We want people to understand and refrain themselves from invading the privacy of patients,” Abdul Karim said when met after a ‘Program Ziarah Kasih’ at the hospital here yesterday.

He was also informed during a briefing by SGH that the alleged personnel is currently under internal investigation and would face disciplinary action if found guilty.

Meanwhile, a total of 115 hampers were distributed to patients at SGH Radiotherapy Unit, its Pillative Care Ward and Ambulatory Ward during the programme yesterday, organised by the Special Affairs Department (Jasa) together with the hospital and state government.

Abdul Karim said the programme was aimed at bringing Chinese New Year cheer to the patients.

“Every year, Jasa will hold such programmes during Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Gawai Dayak celebrations,” said the Asajaya assemblyman, adding that it also provided the opportunity for Jasa and its counterparts to foster closer rapport with the less fortunate.

Ball in ministry’s court, says Abdul Karim



KUCHING: A call has been made on officials from the Education Ministry to earnestly follow through the plan outlined by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on increasing the number of trainees from the state at teachers training institutes (IPGs) .

Stressing this, Assistant Minister of Youth Development Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah believed that while the proposal by Muhyiddin – who is also Education Minister – was good news, the onus would be on the officials responsible for the selection.

“The assurance by Muhyiddin to increase the intake (of trainees) from Sarawak at IPGs and have them serve the state is good news for Sarawak.

“However, we hope that such assurance would be followed through by officials in his ministry as they (officials) are the ones who will be doing the selection,” he said when contacted for his comments on the proposal by the deputy premier.

Muhyiddin told a press conference here on Thursday that to improve the future intake percentage of teachers from the state, his ministry had agreed to re-examine the existing status.

“If the current number of Sarawakian teachers posted to the state is only 10 to 15 per cent of the total number of educators, the ministry would increase this percentage in stages,” he was quoted as saying.

Abdul Karim, also Assistant Minister of Housing, asserted that the ministry must ensure that there would be a sizeable number of Sarawakians graduating from IPGs to teach in schools across the state.

No plan to build a fire station in Asajaya

February 12, 2015


ASAJAYA: There is no plan by the Fire and Rescue Department to build a fire station here.

The revelation was made yesterdy by the Asajaya assemblyman Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.

“As for proposal for a fire station to be built in Asajaya, the matter has already been proposed but Bomba has its own procedures in regards to the overall population of the area. 

I was told that there are no plans as of yet to build a fire station here,” he quoted by an English daily.

He said, inview of this, there was a pressing need to establish a volunteer firefighting unit in the district and hoped that the villagers — through their respective village security and development committees — would collaborate with the Fire and Rescue Department (Bomba) to hold courses and be supplied with firefighting equipment.

Karim, who is the Housing and Youth Development Assistant Minister, was in Kampung Sambir to meet up with fire victims and made a personal contribution.

He also handed over foodstuff and other basic necessities on behalf of the district office and Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Asajaya.

KOTA SAMARAHAN: Work on the Batang Samarahan Bridge has finally started after a 14-year wait and is scheduled to be completed in 36 months.

By January 2018, people of Kota Samarahan as well as Asajaya and Sadong Jaya will no longer have to spend an hour on the road travelling between these areas.

The RM93.88 million project is set to benefit some 240,000 residents in the division, boosting socio-economic activities in the areas concerned with the new shortened travelling distance.

According to Minister of Works Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, the new bridge spanning 774 metres complies with the British Standard 5400 code of practice.

While it is a dual carriage bridge, a three-km pedestrian path connected to the bridge will also be built.

At the earth-breaking ceremony yesterday, Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem said he hoped the contractor and supervisor of the project would make certain that work on the bridge will be carried out as planned.

“Residents here have been waiting for this bridge to happen for over 14 years. Therefore, we hope to see full commitment dedicated to this project.”

Majlis pecah tanah pembinaan Jambatan Batang Samarahan itu disempurnakan Timbalan Ketua Menteri Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Alfred Jabu Numpang mewakili Ketua Menteri Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem di tapak pembinaan, Kampung Baru, Kota Samarahan dekat sini semalam.

Menurut Adenan, pembinaan jambatan itu sudah pastinya akan membawa banyak perubahan dari segi ekonomi dan sosial rakyat di kawasan berkenaan.

“Kerajaan Sarawak yakin pelaksanaan Jambatan Batang Samarahan ini apabila siap kelak bakal memberi impak besar dari segi sosial dan ekonomi kepada pembangunan di bahagian ini. “Malah, jambatan ini bakal memanfaatkan kira-kira 270,000 penduduk di Bahagian Samarahan bagi menghubungkan Kota Samarahan dengan Asajaya dan Sadong Jaya,” katanya menerusi teks ucapan yang dibaca oleh Jabu pada majlis itu.

Beliau memberitahu, masalah perkhidmatan feri yang dialami penduduk di situ kerana hanya disediakan mengikut pasang surut air akan dapat diatasi seterusnya menjimatkan masa perjalanan.

“Selain itu, masalah pengangkutan terutamanya penghantaran bahan mentah atau industri tidak lagi terganggu,” tambahnya.

Mengulas lanjut mengenai projek itu, Adenan menjelaskan tempoh pembinaan jambatan berkenaan adalah selama 36 bulan dan dijangka siap Januari 2018 dengan kos bernilai RM93.88 juta.
