IPOH: Perak Umno Youth wants the state Religious Department to act against Perak Tengah district councillor Zul Hassan and businessman Fairul Azrim Ismail after they admitted having accepted offers to have sex with Chinese nationals.
The department could take action against the two men based on their confessions contained in statements they made when lodging a complaint against one Mohamad Imran Abdullah, said Perak Umno Youth chief Zainol Fadzi Paharudin yesterday.
Zul, who is facing a corruption charge over a development project at Seri Iskandar in Perak Tengah, had lodged a complaint together with Fairul against Mohamad Imran on Tuesday.
Mohamad Imran is the complainant in a corruption case in which Zul and four others are the accused.
Zul had disclosed that an Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) officer claimed to have pictures of him having sex with a Chinese national.
He had been quoted as saying “what is important is we did not ask for the women. He supplied them to us. If people sedekah (donate), don’t you want to accept the sedekah?”
Fairul, who was picked up for questioning but later released on ACA bail, had admitted having had sex with a Chinese woman.
Fairul had also claimed that Mohamad Imran had organised and encouraged him into committing a sinful act by providing him with a woman from China at the Sri Sayang Apartment in Batu Feringghi in Penang on Aug 14.

KLANG: Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department T. Murugiah has hit back at Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar for asking him not to “interfere” in his ministry.
Murugiah said he was surprised to hear such comments from a senior minister because he was merely doing his duty - attending to complaints and solving problems.
“His statement asking me not to interfere in other people’s affairs is asking me and 270 staff in the Public Complaints Bureau to close shop.
“The bureau has received an average of 180 complaints about each ministry from January to August, and how can I do my job if I can’t ‘interfere’ in another ministry?” he said.
“The Public Complaints Bureau is above all ministries when it comes to handling complaints,” he said after visiting SJK (T) Batu Ampat in Jalan Kota Raja here on Thursday.
Syed Hamid was reported as saying that it was inappropriate for Murugiah to interfere in the affairs of another ministry.
He also said that Murugiah’s action in speaking on behalf of Seputeh MP Teresa Kok on complaints she was not served proper meals while in detention under the Internal Security Act (ISA) was akin to being a “spokesman for the Opposition.”
Murugiah added that Syed Hamid should talk to him directly instead of making comments publicly.
“I’m trying to do something good for the general public, treating everyone fairly regardless whether the complaints are from the Government, the Opposition or members of the public.
“As a junior minister, I will always accept with a open heart if he (Syed Hamid) would like to guide me or show me the best way to do my job,” he said.
This is the second time Syed Hamid has hit out at his Barisan Nasional colleagues for “interfering” with his ministry.
Earlier this month, he slammed Barisan leaders for criticising his decision to detain three civilians - including Kok - under the ISA.

First we have Ahmad Ismail.
"Openly the Malays have not attacked Chinese racialism as manifested by their practical rejection of the use of the National language, their rejection of the National schools, their Malaysian Malaysia slogan. If they do it would be muted and certainly not as blatant as non-Malay attacks against Malay racialism."********************

Sin Chew journalist arrested
Sep 12, 08 9:38pm
Sin Chew Daily journalist Tan Hoon Cheng has been arrested today under the Internal Security Act at 8.30pm at her home in Bukit Mertajam, Penang.
She is the second person to be arrested today under the tough security law which allows for detention without trial. It is learnt that she has been taken by the police to the Penang police headquarters.
Tan had reported that local Umno chieftain Ahmad Ismail had allegedly said that Chinese Malaysians are “squatters” in the country. Her report sparked a nationwide outcry, resulting in Ahmad being suspended by Umno for three years after an emergency meeting on Wednesday.
Sin Chew had three days ago came out strongly to defend Tan, who was accused by Ahmad for misreporting his comments. It is unclear whether Ahmad, who remained defiant despite being slapped with the suspension, has also been detained.
