砂拉越人民公正党主席巴鲁比安(Baru Bian,图右)说:比尔卡勇枪杀案的裁决,对砂拉越土著来说,这是黑暗的一天,因为这宗案件的裁决显示无法阻止(统治权贵)对族群的压迫和对公正的否定。

[八打灵再也6月6日讯] 人民公正党砂拉越最高领袖巴鲁比安(Baru Bian)形容比尔卡勇枪杀案3个嫌犯无罪释放的裁决,对砂拉越人民特别是土著来说,是一项毁坏性的打击!也是黑暗的一天!

“高等法院今日对比尔卡勇枪杀案审讯的判决,对那些为比尔卡勇的家属寻求公平正义的人民来说,是一项毁坏性的打击。”巴鲁比安这么说,但他主要归咎于主控官提控不力,致使嫌犯逍遥法外。

“对案件的提控失败在没有提供可靠可信的案情针对主谋。人们可以感觉到法官受挫于主控官的笨拙无能的控状。”人民公正党州主席这么表示,他补充说,法院对案件的裁决是建立在控方向法院提供的有关证据的基础上,而控方却没有提呈强大有力的论据,甚至没有提出有其根据的案情。

巴鲁比安说,比尔卡勇身为一个社会活动活跃分子的人民公正党前美里支部秘书,他之所以被杀害,是因为他协助砂拉越州捍卫原住民权利的斗争,这是清楚明白的。

今天早上,砂拉越商人李志坚(Lee Chee Kiang)、李昌隆(Lie Chang Loon)和陈伟忠(Chin Wui Chung),3人在美里高等法院审讯中,面对唆使谋杀比尔卡勇的表面罪状不成立,无需答辩,无罪释放。然而,被控在这宗黑手党式谋杀中拉起机板的莫哈末费德里(Mohd Fitri Pauzi)的表面罪状成立,必须为比尔卡勇被谋杀进行他的答辩。

比尔卡勇,他的穆斯林名字是莫哈末哈斯比(Mohd Hasbie Abdullah),他是在去年(2016年)6月21日早上8时30分驾着他的四轮驱动车,途经民都鲁-美里路靠近罗东(Lutong)的E-Mart超级市场的路口交通灯处停车时,被人枪杀,当场死亡。

这名人民公正党美里支部领袖的被杀害,相信是跟他维护社会正义课题的工作,特别是砂州原住民权利和习俗土地课题有关。

3个主要嫌犯的释放是“公平正义”的笑柄

在宣布3人无罪释放时,高等法院法官P拉维因特然(P Ravinthran)作出裁决,控方无法提出证据证明3人涉及谋杀比尔卡勇。

巴鲁比安形容整个审讯过程和跟着3个主要嫌犯的释放是公平正义的笑柄。

他说,“人们会记住,在审讯过程中,应当是关键性的证人却转变了他们的位置,而许多来自原住民社会,原本可以提供有力证据的指定证人,却不被传召出庭。”

“对美里国会议员张友庆医生(Dr Michael Teo)以及对死者比尔卡勇的恐吓威胁,在审讯中却没有引证。整个审讯离开我们的想望太远了。”

关注命案者都想要问:李志坚为什么要逃亡?

巴克拉兰州议员巴鲁比安说,关注这宗命案的公众人士都想要明白的问题是:为什么李志坚会在命案发生两天之后立即逃往海外,在当局发出对他的通缉令下,原先企图匿藏在澳洲,而后逃亡到中国?

巴鲁比安说,“如果他(李志坚)没有犯罪,为什么李志坚在命案发生后立即出国逃亡?”

“他匿藏在澳洲之后,飞往中国逃亡。我国警方用了几个月时间,在中国公安局的配合下,才得以将这名难抓捕的逃亡者逮捕归案,面对审讯。”

“警方用尽办法抓捕了他(李志坚)之后,因为证据不足,而如今释放了他?这简直是一个天大的笑话,尤其重要的是检察署的失职无能。”巴鲁比安质疑主理这宗命案的副检查司的操行。

必须迅速解决原住民习俗地和森林保留地问题

巴鲁比安对这宗案件的裁决带给砂拉越原住民无法阻止(统治权贵)对他们族群的压迫和对他们权利的剥夺的结果,感到极其悲痛和万分遗憾。

“这个裁决传送了一个非常错误和令人烦扰的讯息。”他这么说,他强烈要求砂拉越政府迅速承认和解决原住民习俗地 [“pemakai menoa”(“territorial domain”)]和共有森林保留地 [“pulau galau”(“communal forest reserve”)]问题,不得拖延。

“由副首席部长道格拉斯(Douglas Uggah Embas)领导的州委员会,必须现在行动起来,对上述事件作出正确的决定。”

PKR: Weak prosecution, mockery of justice in Kayong murder trial

Source: FMT News

June 6, 2017

State PKR chairman Baru Bian says its a dark day for native Sarawakians as ruling shows nothing can be done to stop oppression of communities and denial of rights.



PETALING JAYA: Sarawak PKR chief Baru Bian has called the ruling which freed three prime suspects over the murder of Bill Kayong, a devastating blow for justice and a dark day for the people of Sarawak, especially the indigenous.

“The ruling today by the High Court judge in the Bill Kayong murder trial is a devastating blow for the people who are seeking justice for Bill Kayong’s family,” Baru said but he pinned the blame on the prosecution.

“The prosecution had failed to put up a credible case against the mastermind. One could sense the frustration of the judge in ,having to put up with an inept prosecution,” the state PKR chairman said, adding that rulings are based on evidence presented before the court and without putting forth a strong case, the prosecution had failed to even get its case off the ground.

Referring to the former Miri PKR secretary’s work as a social activist, Baru said it was obvious that Kayong was murdered for helping to defend the rights of the indigenous population in the state.

Earlier today, Sarawak businessman Stephen Lee Chee Kiang, Lie Chang Loon and Chin Wui Chung were all discharged and acquitted without having their defence called, while Mohd Fitri Pauzi, the man charged with pulling the trigger in the mafia-style murder, was ordered to enter his defence for the murder of Kayong.

Kayong, whose Muslim name is Mohd Hasbie Abdullah, was gunned down while in his Toyota Hilux vehicle about 8.30am on June 21 last year, at a traffic light intersection at Lutong near E-Mart supermarket in Jalan Miri-Bintulu.

The killing of the Miri PKR leader was believed to be linked to his work as an advocate of social issues, especially on indigenous rights and land issues.

In acquitting the trio, High Court Judge P Ravinthran ruled that the prosecution had failed to furnish evidence linking the trio to the murder.

Baru called the whole trial and subsequent release of the three main suspects a mockery of justice.

“The trial will be remembered for the supposed key prosecution witnesses switching sides during the trial, while many named witnesses from the communities who could have testified to give useful evidence were not called.

“The threats made against Miri MP Dr Michael Teo and the late Bill Kayong were not adduced in the trial. The whole conduct of the case leaves much to be desired,” he said.

The Ba’Kelalan state assemblyman said there is no doubt the question asked by most people following the case would be the reason for Stephen Lee to flee the country just two days after the murder, allegedly with the intent of hiding out in Australia, then China while authorities had issued a warrant for his arrest.

“Why did Stephen Lee flee the country immediately after the murder if he was innocent?

“After hiding in Australia he fled to China, and it took months and the co-operation of the Chinese authorities before the authorities were able to bring this fugitive back to face trial."

“After all the efforts taken to capture him, he has been released because of insufficient evidence? This is a complete joke and points to serious deficiencies in the prosecutor’s office,” Baru said, questioning the conduct of the deputy public prosecutors involved in the case.

He lamented the ultimate message to the native Sarawak population from this ruling is that nothing can be done to stop the oppression of their communities and the denial of their rights.

“This ruling has sent a very wrong and disturbing message,” he said, urging the Sarawak government to settle the recognition of “pemakai menoa” and “pulau galau” without further delay.

“The state committee headed by Deputy Chief Minister Douglas Uggah Embas to resolve this matter must act now.”
