Perak Umno: Act on men who admitted having illicit sex

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.


Perak PKR admits likening sex to alms is wrong choice of word
(New Straits Times Online, Friday 26 September 2008)

IPOH: Perak Parti Keadilan Rakyat deputy chairman Zulkifli Ibrahim said the statement by a member describing sexual favours as alms was a slip of the tongue and for want of a better word.
“The mistake was in the wrong use of word. It was not meant to suggest that sex is a form of alms. That is all I can say,” he told reporters here today.

Perak Tengah District Council member Zul Hassan yeterday said the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) had trapped him into having sex with a woman from China.

Another PKR member, Fairul Azrim Ismail, also made a similar admission and claimed he was also trapped by the ACA.

Zulkifli urged the Perak Islamic Department to investigate the reports lodged by Zul and Fairul on Sept 23 under Section 29 of the Perak Syariah Crime Enactment 1992.
Under the section, those found organising, coaxing or encouraging vice was committing an offence.

“The Perak Islamic department must take action to show that it is serious in implementing the criminal enactment passed by the state government,” he said.

Meanwhile, Perak Mufti Datuk Seri Harussani Zakaria said Zul’s statement showed his ignorance of Islamic law and that it was a stupid act of self-defence.

Fairul had been detained by ACA in connection with a corruption charge and accepting sexual favour in the Seri Iskandar project but was released on Aug 21.

Zul and Perak Development Corporation technician Ruslan Sahat, State Executive Councillors from PKR, Rtd Capt Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu and Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi and PKR former Bota state assemblyman Rtd Capt Usaili Alias, are facing 16 counts of corruption.

The case has been fixed for hearing in the Sessions Court on Feb 11 next year.

Corruption is not limited to certain parties. It has no boundary. It tempts people who have authority and power. And all those involved in this case, be they councillors, seekers for favors, the ACA or any other party, should be well aware that they are beholden to Allah. They should conduct themselves correctly. Those in the wrong should repent. Those who try to catch the wrong doers should do so without a malicious motive.

And no defensive explanations about sedekah that make the case a big joke. What kind of righteousness is this?
