MPPJ enforcement officers cry foul
Saturday, 06 November 2010 Super Admin
The fact that this is blatant abuse of power, or not to put too fine a point on it, corruption, seems to escape them completely as they set about, single-mindedly, to develop popular ground support, for future parliamentary elections.
Tunku Abdul Aziz, Sinchew
Local council enforcement officers in Petaling Jaya have told me that they are often stopped dead in their tracks in the course of carrying out their work by Pakatan Rakyat politicians. These loud-mouthed, arrogant and bullying lawmakers, or more correctly, lawbreakers, with their own personal political agenda give direct operational orders to enforcement officers who are answerable, in any case, to their career local government officers.
Enforcing municipal or city council laws in these circumstances takes on a bizarre tug of war aspect when politicians, often from the same party, descend on the scene issuing diametrically opposed instructions. Interfering to the extent of ordering enforcement officers to leave unlicensed food traders well alone for fear of losing their votes is considered, in their circle, as politically savvy and chic. No doubt all part of their ticket to Putrajaya.
The fact that this is blatant abuse of power, or not to put too fine a point on it, corruption, seems to escape them completely as they set about, single-mindedly, to develop popular ground support, for future parliamentary elections. They studiously look away from breaches of the rules and regulations of their own making, committed by MCA supporters who might, just might, change their political allegiance if they were allowed to continue to trade illegally. Why not help them to become "legit"? In this way MPPJ will earn some revenue.
Why do I even bother to raise this? It is a matter of little significance in the overall scheme of things in our corruption-friendly Malaysia. Corruption can be likened to the proverbial acorn; it will grow in time into a great oak. Parties making up Pakatan Rakyat when in opposition were quick to pounce on BN for similar transgressions and now they have shown, in power, that they are as adept as their much maligned Barisan Nasional friends in the insidious art of empty rhetoric.
You want, for God's sake, to show by word and deed that the Pakatan Rakyat is made of ethically sterner stuff, and operate on the highest principles of good governance. You are under the closest public scrutiny. Your every word is analysed, and every action examined. The people of Malaysia now believe they have a credible choice, but you must always remember that public confidence is a fragile commodity.
All it needs for public confidence to evaporate is for you to be shown up as two-faced scoundrels. Winning Putrajaya cannot be taken for granted. You will have to convince the public that your being in power will spell the end of unprincipled governance. If some of you are bent on bending your own rules, then I suggest we members of the public hedge our bets.
Before I made my political debut, I was featured regularly as a speaker on senior courses at Intan, the National Institute of Public Administration. Invariably, during the Q&A time, I was asked what they, very senior civil servants, should do about political interference which they faced regularly. I said that if they expected any sympathy from me for allowing politicians to interfere in their work, they were not going to get any from me. They obviously did not know their own legitimate power and authority, and worse, they did not know the limits of ministerial power or authority. They would be surprised, I told them, if they knew they exercised more power and authority than their ministers.
Some said that if they were "uncooperative" it would be Gua Musang for them – the English equivalent of being sent to Coventry! Tell your interfering half-wit of a minister, "Yes sir (or madam as the case may be) I'd love to implement your instruction, but I am afraid it is an illegal instruction and it is against the General Orders, but if you insist, may I please have it in writing?" No minister is stupid enough to provide admissible evidence in court of abuse of power, a criminal act.
In the case of local government enforcement officers, they are a different kettle of fish. Poorly educated, vastly overworked, grossly underpaid and totally vulnerable, they fall easy prey to their power abusive politicians. Council presidents and secretaries should protect their officers from politicians who have no business to intervene in areas which are the sole preserve of the management of the MPPJ. My advice to these individuals who fancy themselves as brilliant political strategists is that there are many routes to Putrajaya without abandoning their parties' long fought for and cherished principles of integrity in the political life of our country. Our political survival depends on our being the antithesis of BN in every respect.

Let me admit to you that I did sign a false statutory declaration. Yes. I did. I signed a false statutory declaration. It was the second one, not the first one. The first one was entirely truthful. The second one was a complete pack of lies. I admit this.
OPEN LETTER TO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
Dear Tan Sri,
My name is Balasubramaniam a/l Perumal.
I think you may have heard of me.
I was Razak Baginda's private investigator hired by him to protect him from his ex girlfriend Ms. Altantuya Shaaribu (deceased), sometime in 2006.
Remember you charged him for her murder but he got off. Instead, two of the Prime Ministers body guards got convicted. Stranger things have happened, I am sure you would agree.
But I digress. Let me come to the point.
I have been made to understand that you have decided to close the case involving 2 statutory declarations I signed sometime at the beginning of July 2008 in Kuala Lumpur.
The contents of these statutory declarations were diametrically opposed. Both could not have been true and therefore one of them was false. I trust that makes sense to you.
The police, I believe, have investigated the circumstances surrounding the making of these 2 statutory declarations under s.199 of the Penal Code, for an offence which carries a sentence of 3 years imprisonment and a fine. This is not a trivial offence.
The police must have interviewed my lawyer Americk Sidhu, his secretary, the Commissioner of Oaths who attested my signature and a variety of other witnesses you have mentioned who were somehow intrinsically interwoven in the construction and affirmation of both statutory declarations, one way or another.
It has therefore come as a great surprise to me to discover that you have been unable to decipher any wrongdoing from the enormous amount of evidence the police must have been able to accumulate from their investigations.
Please permit me to assist you.
Firstly may I suggest that you re-open this file immediately.
I will make it easy for you.
Let me admit to you that I did sign a false statutory declaration. Yes. I did. I signed a false statutory declaration.
It was the second one, not the first one. The first one was entirely truthful. The second one was a complete pack of lies. I admit this.
This statutory declaration was prepared by some unknown person(s) and I was forced by very thinly veiled threats and intimidation to sign it.
I have already made this known to the world at large and I am surprised your office has not picked this up as yet. Everyone else has.
If you are unable to ascertain this information which I have just provided to you directly, please feel free to contact me at this email address firstname.lastname@example.org and I shall forward to you a copy of the video recorded interview I had in the presence of my lawyers in Singapore last November, and a copy of the transcript thereof.
Otherwise you can find this information on all the blogs worth reading (such as Raja Petra's 'Malaysia Today') and also on 'You Tube'. ( Just type in 'PI Bala' into the search column and you will be surprised what comes up).
So you may now consider charging me for making the false 2nd statutory declaration after the clues I have given you.
I do however reserve the right to plead not guilty to the charge as I believe I have a very good defence.
Your prosecutors will also have to make sure they call all the necessary witnesses to prove their case against me. These witnesses will have to include the following personalities:
(i) a lawyer named Mr. Arunampalam a/l Mariam Pillai (who coincidentally does legal work for Deepak Jayakishan and Rosmah Mansor's personal companies).
(ii) a Commissioner of Oaths (Zainal Abidin Bin Muhayat) who works in the office of M/s Zul Rafique and Partners (Advocates & Solicitors) and who attested my signature when he came to the room in which I was being held at the Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
(iii) Deepak and Dinesh Jaikishan ( very good friends and confidantes of Rosmah Mansor).
(iv) Datuk Nazim Razak (younger brother of the Prime Minister), and his wife.
(v) ASP Suresh (a suspended police officer formerly attached to the IPK HQ KL).
(vi) Officers from the Immigration Department Damansara (who assisted in obtaining urgent passports for my family).
(vii) A host of journalists and reporters who were present in the lobby of the Prince Hotel Kuala Lumpur when a lawyer called Arunampalam released my 2nd statutory declaration without my permission.
These are just some of the witnesses I can think of but I am sure you know how to do your job so that should be no problem. I don't want to be accused of trying to teach an old dog new tricks.
If for some strange reason my defense is called, I will also be able to provide witnesses to support what I have to say. I need not disclose who these witnesses are at this stage and I am sure you know that as well.
I shall now wait for the charge against me to be laid.
I will be more than happy to return to Malaysia to defend myself but you will have to ensure that my safety is guaranteed as there are some people who would prefer that I was not around.
Balasubramaniam a/l Perumal
