Tembak lotong, aktivis fail kes hidupan liar pertama di mahkamah​

PETALING JAYA: Satu saman difailkan di Mahkamah Tinggi Seremban bagi menuntut deklarasi bahawa tindakan menembak beberapa lotong cengkong di Port Dickson menyalahi undang-undang dan dipercayai merupakan tindakan melibatkan hidupan liar pertama di negara ini.

Dua plaintif, Nurul Azreen Sultan, seorang penduduk Taman Raja Zainal di mana kejadian berlaku dan pertubuhan Hak Asasi Hidupan Liar Malaysia (HIDUP) dinamakan sebagai plaintif dalam saman yang difailkan Tetuan Raj & Sach itu.

“Ini langkah penting lagi bersejarah dan kami tidak fikir tindakan seumpamanya pernah dilakukan sebelum ini,” kata peguam Sachpreetraj Singh Sohanpal yang mewakili plaintif dalam sidang media maya.

“Dari perspektif perundangan, kami mahu semua orang tahu bahawa inilah undang-undangnya dan haiwan terancam tidak boleh dibunuh.

“Jika berlaku lagi, kami mempunyai justifikasi untuk mengambil tindakan terhadap pelakunya.”

Gambar kejadian itu tular pada 19 Mei lalu dengan dakwaan bahawa pegawai Jabatan Perlindungan Hidupan Liar dan Taman Negara (PERHILITAN) membunuh 20 lotong cengkong di Taman Raja Zainal, Port Dickson.

Susulan itu, PERHILITAN berkata, ia hanya membunuh tujuh monyet spesies berkenaan yang agresif dan kerap mengganggu penduduk setempat.

Katanya, haiwan itu terpaksa dibunuh selepas usaha menangkapnya gagal.

Kesatuan Antarabangsa untuk Pemuliharaan Alam Sekitar (IUCN) yang dianggotai PERHILITAN, mengklasifikasikan lotong cengkong sebagai spesies terancam. Akta Pemuliharaan Alam Sekitar 2010 turut mengkategorikannya sebagai spesies terlindung.
Sementara itu, Nurul berkata, beliau masih trauma dihantui memori melihat monyet itu kesakitan selepas ditembak.
Katanya, beliau dimaklumkan oleh PERHILITAN bahawa monyet itu ditembak kerana menyerang seorang guru yang terpaksa dimasukkan ke ICU.

Bagaimanapun katanya, pemeriksaannya di hospital berhampiran tidak menemui pesakit berkenaan.

“PERHILITAN sepatutnya mengambil tindakan terhadap pegawai terbabit, sebaliknya menyokong tindakan mereka. Saya masih terbayang anak monyet yang mati dibunuh. Saya tidak dapat menerimanya,” katanya.

‘Historic first’ wildlife case filed in Seremban High Court​

PETALING JAYA: A suit filed in the Seremban High Court seeking a declaration that the shooting of dusky leaf monkeys in Port Dickson last month was illegal is likely to be Malaysia’s first wildlife court action.

The suit, filed through lawyers Raj & Sach, lists Nurul Azreen Sultan, a resident at Taman Raja Zainal where the culling occurred, as the first plaintiff and Hak Asasi Hidupan Liar Malaysia (HIDUP) as the second.

“This is an important, historic first step, and we don’t think any such action has been taken before,” said Sachpreetraj Singh Sohanpal, one of the plantiff’s lawyers, during an online press conference.

“From a legal perspective, we want everyone to know that this is the law and endangered animals cannot be killed. If this happens again, we have justifiable means to demand further action to be taken against the perpetrators.”



On May 19, photos of the incident went viral with claims that officers from the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Perhilitan) had killed 20 dusky leaf monkeys at Taman Raja Zainal in Port Dickson.

In response to the public outcry, Perhilitan said they only killed seven monkeys which were aggressive and had frequently disturbed residents in the area, adding that the culling only took place after unsuccessful attempts to capture the animals.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), of which Perhilitan is a member, classifies dusky leaf monkeys as an endangered species. Malaysia’s Wildlife Conservation Act 2010 categorises them as a protected species.

Recalling the incident, Nurul said she remains traumatised by the memory of the monkeys writhing in agony after they were shot.

She said Perhilitan told her the monkeys were shot because they had attacked a teacher who had to be admitted to the ICU, but her checks at local hospitals found no such patient.

“Perhilitian should have taken action against these officials but instead, they backed them up. I still remember seeing the baby monkeys that were killed. I can’t accept it,” she said.

Sachpreetraj’s colleague, Rajesh Nagarajan, said the onus was on Perhilitan to bring the alleged victim to court to be cross-examined.

PERHILITAN mmg ada kuasa utk membunuh binatang liar yg agresif. Biasanya akan bunuh alfa shj. Tak pastilah apa yg berlaku dlm kes ni.
