PANAS! DALANG PEKERJA ASING: DULU BIOMETRICS RM 912 JUTA KEPADA ANAK MENANTU? KINI 1.5 JUTA BANGLADESH SIAPA PULA?



Menurut data rasmi UnitPerancang Ekonomi (EPU)  sehingga 2014 jumlah pekerja asing berdaftar di negara ini ialah 2,073,414 selepas program pemutihan 6P (tahun 2011).

Media Utusan pada 25 Jun 2015 melaporkan “Dianggarkan Malaysia mempunyai tujuh juta pekerja asing dan hanya 2.2 juta sahaja yang bekerja secara sah. Ini suatu angka yang merisaukan kerana pertambahan pengambilan pekerja asing ini akan menyebabkan kerajaan tidak dapat mengawal secara menyeluruh masalah ini,”




Mesyuarat Jawatankuasa Kabinet Mengenai Pekerja Asing dan Pendatang Asing Tanpa Izin (JKKPA-PATI) Kali ke-5 BIL. 1/2011 PADA 17 Mac 2011 (Khamis) yang dipengerusikan oleh Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin selaku TPM masa itu (Juga pemangku YAB PM- masa bercuti) telah membentangkan beberapa kertas kerja dan melaporkan Pelaksanaan Fasa Kedua Program 6P (Proses Pendaftaran &Pemutihan) melaporkan sejumlah 2,320,034 pekerja asing ( yang sah 1,016,908). Bakinya 1,303,126 didaftarkan.





TREND: Pekerja Asing yang sah ramai dalam sektor pembuatan.


Dari 1,016,908 Pekerja asing yang sah berdaftar 43% adalah sektor pembuatan, perladangan 16.1%,  dan pembinaan 14.1% . Selebihnya dalam perkhidmatan, pertanian dan lain-lain.


TREND BAGI PATI: Yang didaftarkan dari pemutihan Sektor Pembinaan adalah paling tinggi.

1,303,126 PATI yang didaftarkan dalam program pendaftaran pemutihan itu warga Indonesia adalah 640,609 orang disusuli Negara Bangladesh  267,803 dan Myanmar 144,098 orang. Bakinya Nepal dan India. Kali ini sektor paling ramai ialah pembinaan 28% (284,331), Perkhidmatan 20.7 % (269,510), Pembuatan 13.6 % (176,883), Perladangan 11.6% ( 155,395) dan pertanian 6.8 %. Paling mengejutkan jumlah TIADA DALAM SEKTOR ialah 25.2% atau 372,991 orang.

Negeri teramai ialah Selangor 353,306 orang dan Kuala Lumpur  330,321 orang. Lebih malang dari 1,303,126 yang didaftar hanya 95,446 yang dihantar pulang. Jika PATI yang didaftar tiada majikan bukanlah sesuatu yang menghairankan. Jumlah tiada majikan hanya 49,310 tetapi amat mengejutkan PATI yang ada majikan didaftarkan ialah 966,542 orang. Hampir  1 juta orang. Siapa mereka ini? Majikan mereka Melayu ke? Apakah ini satu cara para majikan mengambil pekerja, ambil dahulu dan kemudian didaftarkan secara sah. Apakah situasi ini terus kekal hingga kini menunggu masa kerajaan membuka sistem pemutihan? Bermakna trend membimbangkan ialah ada kemungkinan berjuta lagi sedang menunggu program pemutihan ini. 

Mengapa agaknya berlaku perbezaan sangat ketara dalam sektor tenaga kerja asing yang masuk secara sah dan yang baru didaftarkan itu? Yang sah ramai dalam sektor pembuatan sebaliknya yang haram adalah dalam sektor pembinaan. Sindiket?

10 Kementerian yang memerlukan tenaga kerja asing mencatatkan keperluan 1,155,464 di kuasai oleh 5 Kementerian iaitu MITI (275,723), Kementerian Kerja Raya  (CIDB) (265,000), MOA (237,700), KPDNK (220,000) dan Komoditi (KPPK) (140,000).




Kedudukan ini mungkin tidak jauh berubah untuk tuntutan tenaga kerja asing tahun 2016.

14 Negara sumber membekal tenaga kerja asing iaitu Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Filipina, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Turmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, India dan Indonesia. Bangladesh yang meluluskan 1.5 juta Tenaga kerja asing bukan Negara Sumber.




SIAPA SEBENARNYA UNTUNG DARI PROGRAM 6P ITU?  RM 912 JUTA

Selepas terdaftarnya PATI 1,303,126 orang dengan yang sedia ada secara sah 1,016,908 dengan jumlah 2,320,034 siapa agaknya untung?

Pada tarikh 17 Mac 2011 Mesyuarat Jawatankuasa Kabinet Pekerja Asing dan Pendatang Asing Tanpa Izin  (JKKPA-PATI) di pengerusikan oleh Tan Sri Muhyiddin (TPM) telah membawa makluman sekali kertas laporan Status Pelaksanaan Sistem Pengkalan Data Biometrik Warga Asing dan Sistem Sekuriti Nasional Nexcode (National Enforcement And Registration Biometric System  (NERS).

Projek yang diluluskan UKAS dan dibentang dalam kabinet 29 September 2010 telah diberikan kepada syarikat Nexbis Sdn Bhd (Nexbis). Projek secara PFI ini dikenakan melalui kenaikan Levi sebanyak RM50 seorang setahun. Caj levi akan dikutip oleh Jabatan Imigresen Malaysia dan akan disalurkan kepada Kumpulan Wang Disatukan dan kerajaan akan membuat pembayaran kepada Nexbis.

Berapakah kos Projek NERS ini? Pembiayaan secara PFI serta adil katanya bagi Nexbis yang telah mula mengeluarkan Capital Expenditure hampir 100% (nilai kontrak keseluruhan adalah  RM912 juta bagi pembangunan sistem NERS. 

Siapakah Nexbis Sdn Bhd? Siapa pemiliknya sehingga begitu istimewa? Ini pihak-pihak tertentu bolehlah menyemak dan mendedahkannya. Adakah ia mempunyai kaitan dengan Menteri kanan ketika itu (yang didesas-desuskan dulu dan kini) sehingga perlu dibawa dalam Jawatankuasa Kabinet Pekerja Asing dan Pendatang Asing Tanpa Izin? Ada bermacam rumus mengenainya. Anda boleh membuat penilaian sendiri.

6P Amnesty Programme
Illegal foreign workers is a never-ending problem in Malaysia. It was once speculated that there are more than two million non-citizens in Malaysia, nearly one-third of them illegal. The sprouting of illegal immigrants is believed to be responsible for the increasing crime rates in the country. To address this issue, the government started the 6P Amnesty Programme several years ago to register the illegal ones in order to monitor their activities better.
The government appointed Nexbis Sdn. Bhd as the sole company to carry out this programme. A biometric system was installed in every entry point into the country that was used to register these immigrants. Nexbis was the sole supplier of this device to the Home Ministry and Immigration Department. It was alleged that a Dato who is Muhyiddin’s Son in-law was the main person behind Nexbis being awarded the contract.
Nexbis subsequently subcontracted many smaller companies to carry out the operations. However, there was no check and balancing of those companies that a lot of frauds and misappropriations transpired. Foreign worker non-governmental organisations such Tenaganita claims that poor implementation, lack of transparency and fraudulent agents severely hampered success of the 6P Programme. More than a billion tax-payers money again went to the drain.

ISU –ISU NEXBIS SDN BHD

Antara blog awal tahun 2011 yang mendedahkan mengenai Nexbis Sdn Bhd ialah Justread-whatever.blogspot.com yang bertajuk  Biometric: Confusion all around!
I thought the government has already agreed to pay Nexbis Sdn Bhd about RM1 billion for the biometric system contract. And this company, which many know belongs to close relatives of a 'very senior Cabinet minister', is not an agent for the 'pemutihan' but the one who supplies Home Ministry and the Immigration Dept with the device.
The biometric machines are meant to be free as Nexbis Sdn Bhd will get its RM1 billion from the government. KDN should only impose rental charges for it but it seems that the ministry too wants to make money by charging agents with such a high fees.
Amnesty, legalisation of illegal immigrants and foreign workers' registration. Different descriptions that carry the same meaning. Its all about money - BIG money with BIG confusion.

I thought the government has already agreed to pay Nexbis Sdn Bhd about RM1 billion for the biometric system contract. And this company, which many know belongs to close relatives of a 'very senior Cabinet minister', is not an agent for the 'pemutihan' but the one who supplies Home Ministry and the Immigration Dept with the device.

This 'pemutihan' was originally set for early June. It was then delayed to mid-June and then to July 1st. Deputy PM and chairman of Cabinet Committee for Foreign Workers Muhyiddin Yassin then announced that it would start on July 11 while Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said the date was July 1.

However, registration of legal foreign workers only began on July 12 while August 1st is set for illegal workers' registration. Both procedures are given a duration of three to four weeks each. Legal workers can register at the Immigration Dept for free while appointed agents are allowed to impose a RM35 charge to register an illegal.

However, the time frame given is met with criticism as it would not be suffice to cover about 2 million foreign workers in the Peninsular. As Ramadan is closing in, many (including diplomats of respective countries) believe it should be extended until end of September.

Initially, the government's plan was to complete both procedures in three weeks. The idea was to avoid some people from taking advantage of it, especially in controlling the possible influx of foreigners who saw it as an opportunity to 'swim over' to Malaysia. It is also a must that all foreign workers - illegal or not - to have this biometric card.

At the early stages, some said outsourcing companies are not entitled to apply as agents for this biometric because they are the ones who created a lot of problems by bringing in so many foreign workers but failed to secure them with appropriate jobs at one time. This caused the government with severe headache as the cost to send them home was not cheap.

And then, they decided that any company with a track-record in managing foreign workers were allowed to apply. Finally, more than 800 did that. However, the number chosen as agents rose to more than 300 instead of 150 as originally planned.

Some matters are still in contention, among which are the manner in which the whole process was conducted by KDN officials. Among which are:

* During the first briefing with about 300 shortlisted agents on June 29, it was explained that the rental for each biometric machine was RM14,750 and agents who wish to use it were advised to go straight to Nexbis office in Damansara. And so, there was a 'gate-crash' for the machines the next day.

* However, during a second briefing on July 7, potential agents were given less than 24 hours to prepare bank drafts as deposits for the machines, and whoever could produce it by 11am the next day (Friday) would be given a letter of appointment at 3pm. As most companies (especially Bumis) didnt have enough money and while the time given was so short, some have to sell of their cars, jeweleries and even resorted to borrowing from the loan sharks for the deposits.


* Those who paid deposits on July 7 were told to collect the official receipts, letter of appointment and a CD which contains the formatted forms to be used for registration, at 3pm. When they returned after the Friday prayers, many were left without the CDs and official receipts.


* Confusion flared again when announcements gave two different dates of registration - 18th and 25th of July. And again, it was finally said that registration of illegal workers would start on August 1. However, where is the CDs and the machines when only some agents have already got it? Also, not all agents could afford even a single biometric machine.

* Initially, it was said that Bangladeshis would not be included but the decision was then turned around. KDN also said there wont be any charges for the Bangladeshis, whether they are illegal or not. So, what's this special treatment all about?

* KDN said agents could start registering illegal foreign workers beginning August 1 for RM35 but when will the legalisation (biometric) begin in order for the agents to collect the RM300 commission-per-head? A year later?

* KDN too did not take any action on several reports about various agents and companies already raking in big money by collecting between RM500 and RM2000 from foreign workers who wished to 'buy' the biometric card. Some have done it over the past one year. In fact, there was no standard guideline as to how much the government would charge them by their job sectors.


* The biometric machines are meant to be free as Nexbis Sdn Bhd will get its RM1 billion from the government. KDN should only impose rental charges for it but it seems that the ministry too wants to make money by charging agents with such a high fees.

* As some agents have got their machines already, who will supply the others, and when? Latest news is, KDN is having a shortage of biometric machines. If its true, then we can expect more problems.

And so, this biometric thing is not only giving problems to agents but to foreigners as well. Some have been cheated while the rest are having doubt about KDN's credibility in ensuring that the whole process could be completed within the stipulated period.


Who could come up with a 'one-off' explanation?




Isu Tenaga Kerja Bangladesh!

Isu pengambilan pekerja asing dari Bangladesh bukanlah baru. Menjadikan Bangladesh sebagai Negara sumber memerlukan persediaan yang rapi memandang Bangladesh sebelum ini tidak mempunyai sistem penyediaan tenaga kerja yang baik dari kerajaannya.

Jawatankuasa Kabinet Mengenai Pekerja Asing dan Pendatang Asing Tanpa Izin kali ke-5 BIl/2011 pun telah membawa kertas pertimbangan untuk di luluskan iaitu;

Laporan Lawatan Kerja ke Bangladesh dan UAE, dan Cadangan Negara Bangladesh sebagai sebuah Negara Sumber bagi pengambilan Pekerja Asing.


Agenda mesyuarat Pekerja Asing dan Pendatang Asing Tanpa Izin kali ke-5 Bil/2011 telah membawa isu tenaga kerja Bangladesh lebih awal lagi. 

Jadi usaha kelulusan 1.5 juta Bangladesh 2016 adalah hasil dari kertas kerja itu awalan semasa Tan Sri Muhyiddin menjadi TPM lagi! Bukan benda baru. 

Terdapat pelbagai reaksi mengenai Penggajian Tenaga Kerja Bangladesh secara G to G itu. Bagaimanapun KDN telah menjawab kegusaran rakyat itu

Perlu ditekankan di sini, bahawa tiada satu angka yang mutlak bagi jumlah kemasukan pekerja Bangladesh kelak kerana ianya akan bergantung kepada keperluan sebenar majikan semasa permohonan dibuat dan akan dinilai berdasarkan kelayakan serta kemampuan setiap majikan untuk mematuhi peraturan yang ditetapkan oleh Kerajaan. Mekanisme ini akan dipantau dan dikawalselia oleh Kerajaan melalui Agensi Kawal Selia untuk setiap sektor bagi mengelakkan berlakunya kebanjiran pekerja asing dalam negara dan membenarkan hanya mereka yang layak sahaja bekerja di Malaysia.


Walaupun  rakyat  telah diberi penjelasan akan kerja 3D (Dirty, Dangerous, Difficult) dalam lima (5) sektor formal yang dibenarkan untuk menggaji pekerja asing sahaja iaitu sektor pembinaan, perkilangan, perladangan, pertanian dan perkhidmatan. Kebimbangan utama ialah lambakan pekerja asing.

Jika kerajaan boleh mendaftarkan tenaga kerja asing sehingga 1.3 juta secara sah semasa proses pemutihan tetapi keupayaan penghantaran balik tidak sampaipun 100 ribu orang. Baki yang besar dianggarkan 7 juta di Negara ini adalah satu jumlah yang besar!. Kebimbangan ini yang patut dijawab oleh kerajaan. Sejauh mana jaminan kerajaan menyelesaikan lambakan pendatang asing. Jika atas permintaan industri rakyat masih boleh bertimbang rasa. 

Jika dulu manfaat Sistem Pengkalan Data Biometrik Warga Asing dan Sistem Sekuriti Nasional Nexcode (National Enforcement And Registration Biometric System  (NERS) kepada Nexbis Sdn Bhd untuk konsesi 12 tahun dan kini kouta 1.5 juta ini siapa pula? Sampai bila kouta 1.5 juta ini habis digunakan? setahun atau 5 tahun?

Adakah taukeh “out sourcing” Bangladesh bergelar Dato’ itu yang akan monopoli? Atau siapa? Kita buka untuk persoalan.
