PUTRAJAYA, 16 Jan (Bernama) -- Mahkamah Persekutuan memutuskan bahawa

Anggota Parlimen Sungai Siput Dr Michael Jeyakumar tidak boleh menggunakan

saluran undang-undang untuk mempertikai isu berkaitan dana khas kawasan pilihan

bagi kawasan Parlimennya.

Panel lima hakim diketuai Presiden Mahkamah Rayuan Tan Sri Md Raus Sharif

membuat keputusan itu sebulat suara selepas berpendapat pengagihan dana itu

adalah di bawah prerogatif pengurusan dan pertimbangan dasar, yang sememangnya

di luar bidang kuasa mahkamah.

Md Raus berkata sehubungan itu, mahkamah tidak mempunyai bidang kuasa untuk

menilai kelayakan permohonan Jeyakumar berkaitan isu dana khas tersebut atau

memutuskan dasar yang dibuat oleh eksekutif.

Beliau berkata dasar kerajaan dibuat selepas mempertimbang beberapa faktor

teknikal yang bukan bersifat undang-undang, dan hakim tidak memiliki maklumat

atau kepakaran yang sesuai untuk menilai faktor terbabit serta memutuskan

kewajaran dasar tersebut.

"Mahkamah perlu berhati-hati untuk campur tangan dalam hal yang berkaitan

dengan dasar kerana ia merupakan perkara eksklusif dalam domain eksekutif.

MAHKAMAH-SUNGAI SIPUT 2 PUTRAJAYA

"Campur tangan atau pelanggaran yang tidak wajar oleh badan kehakiman ke

dalam bidang kuasa eksekutif dan sebaliknya akan membawa keburukan kepada sistem

kerajaan kita yang berpegang kepada prinsip pengasingan kuasa antara tiga

komponen iaitu eksekutif, perundangan dan kehakiman," katanya.

Md Raus juga berkata isu itu tidak boleh dipertahankan dari segi

undang-undang dan semakan kehakiman berhubung perkara tersebut tidak boleh

dilakukan.

Panel itu turut dianggotai Hakim Besar Malaya Tan Sri Zulkefli Ahmad

Makinudin dan Hakim Mahkamah Persekutuan Datuk Hashim Yusoff, Tan Sri Suriyadi

Halim Omar serta Datuk Ahmad Maarof.

"Kami tidak nampak keperluan bagi Mahkamah Tinggi memberi kebenaran (kepada

Dr Jeyakumar untuk memulakan semakan kehakiman) kerana dokumen jelas menunjukkan

bahawa beliau tidak mempunyai kes," katanya ketika menolak rayuan Jeyakumar.

Dr Jeyakumar mengemukakan rayuan terhadap tindakan Mahkamah Rayuan

membatalkan kebenaran yang diperolehnya daripada Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur

bagi memfailkan semakan kehakiman untuk mencabar keputusan agensi kerajaan

menolak permohonan beliau mendapatkan peruntukan daripada dana khas kawasan

pilihan raya.

Beliau memohon peruntukan khas itu untuk disumbangkan kepada SMJK Shin

Chung, SJK Methodist dan Rumah Anak Yatim Nurul Ihsan serta beberapa projek

kecil bagi faedah penduduk kampung Orang Asli.

Dr Jeyakumar menamakan Ketua Pengarah Unit Pelaksanaan dan Penyelarasan

Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Pengarah Pejabat Pembangunan Perak dan kerajaan sebagai

responden dalam permohonannya bagi mendapatkan kebenaran untuk semakan kehakiman

yang difailkan pada 29 Okt 2010.

Antara lain, beliau memohon satu pengisytiharan bahawa peruntukan dana khas

kawasan pilihan raya itu mesti disalur sama rata kepada semua Anggota Parlimen

tanpa mengira kaitan politik mereka mengikut Perkara 8 (1) Perlembagaan

Persekutuan.

Dr Jeyakumar juga memohon perintah mandamus untuk memaksa responden memberi

penjelasan berhubung bidang kuasa dalam mengagihkan dana daripada peruntukan

khas kawasan mengikut budi bicara mereka selain menuntut mengetahui prosedur

mengeluarkan peruntukan itu sejak 2008.
