I suspect this is happening. If it was not challenged, it will become the norm. Thisis what I had suspected happening to Sabah making it the poorest in the world now. Many Sabahansvare happybwith the way they are, but all over the world, nations progress at a much faster rate, even in war torn nations like Palestine, have better standard of living than the 20% Sabahans, making them the poorest in the world now. Imagine, our Maliau basin to be strip mined for coal? Once it is handed over to the Federal government. If it can happen in Selangor, it is surely much worse in Sabah, with the majority of illiterate politicians voted into power. http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2012/11/15/nation/12320553&sec=nation SHAH ALAM: Another top civil servant in Selangor has been transferred out amid the brewing controversy surrounding the Batu Caves condominium project. A source said Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) president Datuk Zainal Abidin A'ala (pic), who had reportedly revealed minutes of a meeting in 2007 pertaining to the project, has been transferred to the National Institute of Public Administration (Intan). He is due to report for duty today. The source said the Public Service Depart-ment (PSD) had informed him of the transfer. Yesterday was the last day at the council for Zainal Abidin, who had reportedly said the controversial condominium project was given a development order in late 2007 and that it included a block of shops and office lots that were constructed earlier. He was not available for comment but two MPS councillors disclosed Zainal Abidin had been given notice of the transfer. Councillor A. Murugeshu told The Star Zainal Abidin had known about the transfer about a month ago but did not know where he would go. “It is so coincidental that Zainal Abidin's transfer happened when the Batu Caves issue is hot,'' he said. Another councillor Gunarajah R. George believed Zainal Abidin was transferred out of MPS because he had released the minutes of a meeting in 2007 that gave the names of the municipal councillors then who had approved the 29- storey condominium project that was to be developed by Dolomite Corporation Bhd. Gunarajah said Zainal Abidin was due to retire next year. On Sept 27, Petaling Jaya mayor Datuk Mohamad Roslan Sakiman reportedly received a letter informing him that he would be transferred effective Oct 1. The state government objected to the move and the transfer has since been frozen. Regarding the latest transfer move, state executive councillor Ronnie Liu expressed his disappointment but said he had yet to receive a letter from the PSD informing the state government of Zainal Abidin's transfer. “We are upset and shocked, as MPS will lose a hardworking and efficient leader,” Liu, who is state housing and local government committee chairman, told reporters yesterday. Meanwhile, Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim announced yesterday former Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (Mida) director-general Datuk N. Sadasivan would chair the independent committee that would review the development of the Batu Caves project. Selangor Town and Country Planning Department deputy director Norasiah Bee has been appointed secretary. The planned project has been been stopped temporarily following orders from the state government to conduct soil testing.
