The Star bags two MPI-Petronas journalism awards

Posted: 18 Apr 2014 07:43 AM PDT

KUALA LUMPUR: The Star bagged two prizes at the Malaysian Press Institute MPI-Petronas Malaysian Journalism Awards 2013.

Assistant news editor Yip Yoke Teng clinched the best public service reporting award with her article Conditions going downhill.

"The article highlighted the rape of Bukit Enggang due to illegal logging and sand mining, as a result of ill-management by the many government agencies monitoring the former forest reserve.

"The damage is not only to the environment, but poses a serious danger to villagers in the vicinity as well.

"I hope with the win, Bukit Enggang and the hills of Hulu Langat can one day be saved, following an improvement in public service," she said.

Journalist Isabelle Lai Lin Hui won the best environment reporting-Petronas category for her series of articles on Cameron Highlands, titled The ravaging goes on, Saving the Highlands and Pos Terisu areas raided.

Both received a cash prize of RM15,000 each at the awards presentation ceremony here Friday night.

In his speech, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin said he was proud with the high commitment of the local media, especially the mainstream media that practised responsible journalism.

"This is shown in their reporting on the MH370 tragedy, which has caught the attention of the media worldwide," he added.

The MPI Awards was launched in 1980 to recognise the nation's best journalism work and products. Its name was changed in 1994 when Petronas came in as the sponsor.

A total of RM300,000 in prize money was presented to winners in 12 categories.

Paloh assemblymen involved in accident still unaware of wife's death

Posted: 18 Apr 2014 04:39 AM PDT

IPOH: Datuk Nozula Mat Diah, the Paloh assemblyman involved in a road accident Thursday, has yet to learn that his wife has passed away.

Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital (HRPB) surgeon Dr Basel Ebernesan said Nozula still did not know that his wife, Datin Maziah Din, died in the accident.

He said Nozula's injuries were serious, but was in stable condition.

"It's still early to predict the outcome. We have placed him (Nozula) in the high dependency unit ward and given (him) painkillers so he can rest for faster recovery.

"He is not assisted by any breathing device and is breathing normally," Dr Ebernesan told reporters here on Friday.

Datuk Nozula Mat Diah's injuries are serious, but is in stable condition.

Nozula had bruises on his lungs from the impact of the car crash and seven broken rib bones - six on the right and one on the left.

Dr Ebernesan said they had to take precautionary measures and monitor the patient closely over the next few days.

He added there were no plans to transfer Nozula to a hospital in Kelantan as the patient's condition did not permit it.

Nozula's 19-year-old son, Mohd Fitri, who suffered a shoulder injury was reported to be in stable condition at KPJ Hospital, here.

Over in GUA MUSANG, Nozula's wife Maziah was laid to rest at the Felda Chiku Muslim burial ground on Friday.

Her remains arrived at her family home in Chiku town at 7.15am, after a post-mortem at HRPB in Ipoh.

Among those present at the 10am burial were Maziah's daughter and driver of the car involved in the accident, Norfatim Nabila Nozula, 22, Galas assemblyman Ab Aziz Yusof and hundreds of Paloh residents.

Norfatim, when met by reporters after the funeral, said it was raining at the time and the road was slippery, causing the Nissan Murano to spin and skid.

"I did not panic and managed to control the car, which skidded into the opposite lane, hit a hillslope and landed in a drain in my attempt to prevent the car from plunging into a ravine on the left side of the road.

"I got out of the car and pulled out my younger sister Nadirah, Mohd Fitri and nephew, Raja Haris, while asking for help from passers-by.

"My parents were still trapped in the damaged car and firemen later extricated them," recalled Norfatim, adding that she was deeply saddened by the incident which took the life of her mother.

The accident at 6.30pm Saturday occurred at Km23 of the Cameron Highlands-Simpang Pulai Road when Nozula and his family members, coming from Gua Musang, Kelantan, were on their way to attend a relative's wedding in Kuala Lumpur. - Bernama
