Tempoh Tiga Tahun Mendaftar...Biar Betoi..

PUTRAJAYA: Lebih 40,000 pengusaha burung walet di negara ini yang mengaut keuntungan lumayan diberikan tempoh tiga tahun bagi mendaftar dan melesenkan premis dengan kadar RM50 bagi mengelak tindakan pihak berkuasa.

Oh Pak Menteri....cuba selidik dulu..samada kesemua 40,000 pengusaha burung walet telah mengaut keuntungan???  Apakah sudah terbukti kesemua pengusaha tersebut sudah mempunyai hasil yang selumayan yang disangka??? Tidakkah anda tahu??? ada pengusaha yang sudah bertahun-tahun masih belum mendapat sebarang hasil walaupun sudah berpuluh ribu malahan ratusan ribu dibelanjakan... hutang sudah kena bayar, tetapi hasilnya???

Apa yang dikesalkan, pihak-pihak berwajib hampir keseluruhannya mempunyai fikiran yang cetek..tanpa kajian, usul periksa, mengganggap begitu senang bagi seseorang pengusaha mengutip hasil setelah rumah siap dibina??? apakah kamu ingat, siap sahaja rumah kita memetik jari...semua burung masuk kedalam rumah dan esoknya mereka bersarang???

Fikirkanlah...rumah burung ynag dibina oleh pihak veterinar (yang Pak Din bina tetapi bayaran masih terhutang!!!) sehingga kini masih belum ditiduri burung dan jauh sekali mempunyai sarang....!!!!

Tahukah kamu.. bayaran RM 50 yang dikenakan bukan terhenti setakat itu??? apabila ingin mendapat permit dari PBT bayaran sehingga RM30K bakal dikenakan... untuk apa??? tanyalah mereka.. Ada kenalan Pak Din yang sudah terkena....
 
Menteri Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani, Datuk Seri Noh Omar, berkata buat masa ini, ada lebih 50,000 pengusaha burung walet di negara ini, tetapi hanya kira-kira 10 peratus saja yang berdaftar dengan Jabatan Perkhidmatan Veterinar (JPV) dan mendapatkan lesen daripada pihak berkuasa tempatan berkaitan.

Boleh Pak Menteri fikirkan kenapa hanya 10% sahaja pengusaha yang mendaftar??  Cuba fikirkan.. apa gunanya mendaftar?? ada faedahnya?? adakah pihak jabatan dibawah Pak Menteri membantu pengusaha-pengusaha supaya berjaya?? setahu Pak Din HABUK PUN TARAK....MENYUSAHKAN ADALAH... kenapa Pak Din kata begitu??? kalau rumah sendiri (Di Kluang) pun tak tahu nak usahakan untuk dijayakan...manakan pulak boleh membantu pengusaha-pengusaha.

Dulu semasa PERHILITAN menjaga industri ini adalah juga bantuan khidmat nasihat yang diberi...tetapi sekarang?? fikir-fikirkanlah sendiri...

Beliau berkata, pengusaha perlu mendaftarkan industri mereka bagi memudahkan mereka mendapatkan lesen daripada PBT seterusnya membolehkan mereka mengeksport produk mereka ke luar negara.

HAHAHAHA BETUL KER??? Takkan semua orang yang punya rumah burung nak mengeksport hasil mereka keluar negeri? ke China??

“Mereka perlu mendaftar dan mendapatkan lesen bagi memudahkan produk dieksport selain memastikan produk burung walet yang dieksport memiliki kualiti yang ditetapkan,” katanya pada sidang media selepas melancar dan menyerahkan Garis Panduan Pembangunan Industri Burung Walet, semalam.

Macam mana ehhh??? kita cuma ada rumah..kalau pun ada sarangnya...takkan kita juga yang nak pergi eksport?? Bukankah sarang itu kelak akan dijual kepada pihak lain yang akan mengeksportnya?? jadi kualiti sarang bolehkah ditetapkan dengan adanya lesen?? bukankah keadaan dalam rumah yang menentukannya?

Beliau berkata, garis panduan yang pertama kali dikeluarkan itu memperuntukkan kaedah pendaftaran premis burung walet di seluruh negara dan borang pendaftaran premis penternakan dan pemprosesan sarang burung walet boleh dimuat turun melalui laman sesawang JPV. “Semua pengusaha diwajib berdaftar dengan JPV dan pendaftaran premis bermula dengan pengisian borang pendaftaran, lawatan ke tapak oleh pegawai JPV, pemberian nombor Radio Frequency Idenfication (RFID) dan kad pengenalan pemilik premis walet.

Bullshits semua nih...argggghhhhh semuanya ni hanya untuk mengutip duit dari rakyat sahaja... inilah yang dikatakan RAKYAT DIDAHULUKAN... ATAU RAKYAT DULUKAN...Duit perlu dikeluarkan untuk bagi kerajaan tetapi apa yang rakyat dapat??? pihak Indonesia dan Thailand... tak perlu pun semua ini...kenapa MALAYSIA?? terlebih pandai??? atau ada agenda tertentu???

“Semua prosedur itu perlu dipatuhi dan hanya mengambil kos hanya RM50 bagi setiap pendaftaran,” katanya. Menurutnya, dalam usaha menggalakkan pembabitan pelbagai golongan masyarakat dalam industri burung walet, kementerian sudah merangka pelan induk pembangunan sarang burung walet sehingga 2020 dengan menggariskan tindakan yang perlu dilaksanakan pelbagai agensi dan swasta bagi menjayakan pembangunan industri sarang burung walet di negara ini.


Beliau berkata, buat masa ini, industri pengeluaran sarang burung walet di negara ini sudah mencapai kapasiti 250 tan dengan nilai kira-kira RM1 bilion setahun dan dijangka meningkat sehingga 500 tan dengan nilai RM4.5 bilion menjelang 2020.

Ni....anggaran paling senang di dapati eh...??? ada 50,000 rumah, main dharab ajer agaknya..atau ada statistik yang digunapakai??

“Garis pembangunan ini diguna pakai di seluruh negara bagi menyelaras dan mengharmonikan pelbagai peraturan pelaksanaan aktiviti penternakan serta kegiatan import dan eksport sarang burung walet supaya lebih tersusun dan berdaya maju,” katanya...MAJU UNTUK SIAPA????? KERAJAAN ATAU RAKYAT?? Pernah turun kepadang bertanya masalah pihak rakyat yang menceburinya??

Urgent action needed against Penang swiftlet farming



PrintE-mail
Wednesday, 23 June 2010 19:41

Rebecca Duckett highlights the risks posed by swiftlet farming in the George Town world heritage site in a letter to the Penang Chief Minister.

As a resident of George Town and as a council member of the Penang Heritage Trust, I want to bring to your attention yet again, the problem of swiftlet farming in our urban areas. The National Guidelines For Swiftlet Breeding are to be presented to Cabinet very soon and there has been no public discussion whatsoever with stakeholders, residents or NGOs. This lack of transparency has to be addressed before any Guidelines for Swiftlet breeding can be passed.

According to the June 2005 newsletter of the Malaysian Swiftlet Farmers Association, over 10% of houses - 400 houses- in George Town have been converted into swiftlet farms. The latest casual count estimates that these numbers could be closer to 20% of houses in George Town.

We do not oppose swiftlet farming in general; it is a very lucrative business which brings in approximately RM 1.5 billion per year. However, the damage urban swiftlet farming in George Town is doing to our "intangible heritage", by moving people out of buildings in order to open swiftlet farms, and to our "tangible heritage" by destroying the original features of the “exceptional range of shophouses and townhouses” that gave us our WHS listing in the first place is too great to be ignored.

Swiftlet farming encourages swiftlets to nest in a particular house, in order to harvest the nests that they build there. These nests are then sold on at an extremely lucrative price, to be used as the main ingredient in birds nest soup. We are not opposing the practice of swiftlet farming in general but we want it relocated from George Town into less populated, agricultural areas, for the following reasons:

1) Health concerns, including but not limited to:

- Cryptococcus
Dried bird droppings and bird’s nests have been known to harbour the yeast spore Cryptococcus, which ideally forms colonies at 20 - 37°C (perfect for Georgetown) and which is responsible for infections in human beings. Inhalation of Cryptococcus spores cause lung infections, cryptococcal meningitis and pneumonia in healthy children and adults, and is particularly dangerous to anyone who is immuno-compromised.
King, Dr. John W. and DeWitt, Meredith L., “Cryptococcosis,” http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/215354-overview, October 30th, 2009

- Avian Flu
Avian flu, or H5N1, is a rare but severe disease that can be fatal. The last person diagnosed with avian flu was in Vietnam on 16th March of this year. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), “all birds are thought to be susceptible to infection with avian influenza viruses”. It is possible that the avian flu virus could be introduced to swiftlets in George Town from migratory waterfowl, which scientists believe are “now carrying the H5N1 virus in its highly pathogenic form, sometimes over long distances.”

The WHO states: “Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Malaysia have controlled their outbreaks and are now considered free of the disease. Elsewhere in Asia, the virus has become endemic in several of the initially affected countries.” However, there is no reason to suggest that swiftlets coming into contact with infected migratory birds from other parts of Asia will not contract H5N1. Living in such close proximity to one another, contaminated swiftlets would quickly transfer the disease between themselves, increasing the chances for human infection either via direct contact with contaminated birds or contaminated feces, the two most common sources of infection. World Health Organisation, “Avian influenza “bird flu”,” http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/avian_influenza/en/#countries, February 2006

- Dengue Fever

Pools of water created by swiftlet farmers to ensure an ideal humidity and temperature for the birds also create perfect breeding grounds for mosquitos, including Aedes Mosquitos, which carry Dengue Fever. Outbreaks in George Town on specific streets have recently been very common.

2) The danger swiftlet farming poses to George Town’s Unesco status:

- The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) seeks to encourage the identification, protection and preservation of cultural and natural heritage around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity. George Town’s World Heritage Site status is not just a label that will increase tourism, but a treaty signed to conserve the unique “intangible heritage” of George Town.

However, homes that are converted into birdhouses suffer irreparable damage, as original windows, doors, plasterwork and features are removed, and sprinkler systems are set up to keep the house humid. This not only causes water damage, damp and rot to that house, but also to adjacent properties, thereby threatening the “unique architectural and cultural townscape without parallel anywhere in East and Southeast Asia...in particular [the] exceptional range of shophouses and townhouses” which gave George Town WHS status in the first place.

Puan Maimunah, as Acting General Manager to the George Town World Heritage Office, has stated that: “personally, the swiftlet industry poses a conflict to the World Heritage Site listing, and possibly needs to be relocated”. If action is not taken against urban swiftlet farming, and George Town “loses the characteristics which determined its inscription on the World Heritage List” it may be placed on the List of World Heritage in Danger or have its status as a World Heritage Site revoked. The Site listing undoubtedly brings more tourism and therefore more money to our city. The loss of our architecture and/or listing would negatively impact on tourism and harm the economy of George Town.

3) Noise pollution:

- The sound systems used to attract swiftlets by playing amplified birdsong continuously constitutes noise pollution, which is a nuisance for residents of and visitors to George Town. However, in recent months, the main source of noise pollution is the birds themselves because numbers have soared and are now out of control. The sky above residences in George Town are full of birds emitting piercing sounds especially in the early hours of morning, late afternoon and evening.

Responsibility of the Penang state government and its departments:

The Penang State Government controls the future of George Town. The decisions made now have long term consequences. In order to address these consequences, we urgently request that the State Government of Penang keeps to and enforces, the terms of the extended moratorium on Swiftlet breeding in George Town, that states that operators cannot start any new swiftlet farms in George Town. The moratorium was set up to halt the proliferation of swiftlet houses in George Town, not as a open bill for them to proliferate freely. The breeders are openly setting up new farms all over George Town. By condoning and allowing this to happen the State Government and MPPP accepts that it is responsible for any negative impact on public health and environment.

We request that the State Government creates a heft annual tax to be paid by each individual urban swiftlet farm until they have moved from the urban areas of George Town on or before the deadline set by the State Government. This tax creates a fund which can then be used when an outbreak of Avian Flu H5N1, Crytococcus or other disease relating to birds, breaks out enabling the State Government to act on any emergency measures needed for this outbreak or environmental disaster cleanup. For the swiftlet farmers, this tax payment will mark their dedication to the maintenance of their farms health and safety measures and further reinforces their responsibility and belief that swiftlet farming in urban areas amongst a dense human population, poses no dangers to humans. Non payment of this tax allows the State Government to forcibly close down the swiftlet farm.

We also insist that in addition, the State Government as a whole, with the Heads of the Veterinary Department and Public Health, be made personally responsible for any environmental and health and safety issues that will arise from the spiralling increase in the population of swiftlets over George Town and the environmental disaster that will take place within the next few years, if swiftlet farms are not removed immediately from our urban areas. The State Government and the Heads of the Veterinary Department and Public Health will also be personally responsible to pay any compensation required in events of death from any bird related disease, outbreak of disease, as well as the loss of investment made by stakeholders who have put huge investments into the belief that George Town will benefit from its Unesco World Heritage Status and is currently being marketed as a tourist destination and world class heritage site by the Penang State Government. Loss of investment should also include, but not be limited to, being forced to move from buildings because of an individuals fear to his/her own personal health and safety.

Laws are being enforced by the State Government on developers, on residents, on landlords that are trying to revitalise George Town as a residential, cultural, heritage and tourist hub, yet swiftlet farms are being allowed to proliferate freely, beyond the realms of law. The State Government must act with a balanced hand.

I would request your immediate assistance in lobbying the Malaysian Government to sign into law, guidelines explicitly prohibiting swiftlet farming in George Town and urban areas, and to act on bringing current owners of swiftlet farms in urban areas to justice. The health and safety of the rakyat and Malaysia's precious environment should be foremost in any Government initiative. Moving swiftlet farming out of George Town and urban areas is in keeping with the State Government of Penang's initiative for a "Cleaner, Greener, Penang" and must be viewed with long term benefit to all the rakyat, all cultures, all tangible and intangible heritage in George Town and our urban areas.
