I was wrongfully detained by Puchong police CID chief

The account of event leading to my arrest as given by the OCPD Puchong and its CID Chief DSP Lim in yesterday’s press conference was malicious, dishonest and out of context. Both of them have related a totally different event on on Thursday (police raid on vice activities at the Spa)  to link up with Friday’s MPSJ attempt to seal the hotel in question. By doing so, both of them have a malicious intent to discredit my personal integrity in order to cover up for their own wrongdoings, weaknesses and abuse of power.

I will be making a police report against DSP Lim for the wrongful detention and also a police report against both AC Zainal Rashid and DSP Lim for making wild accusations against me.

I will call for a press conference in due course to explain the whole event after making my police reports.

I have spoken to my lawyer and I reserve my right to take DSP Lim and AC Zainal Rashid Abu Bakar to courts. 

Meanwhile, people should ask Zainal and Lim why they have allowed illegal activities right under their nose for three years, since the hotel in question is situated only a few shops away from the Puchong police station?

And MPSJ should also explain why they have allowed the conversion of commercial blocks into budget hotel without giving them a business license for the past thre years? And why the local council has waited three years to take such drastic actions against the hotel now?

And DSP Lim has to explain to the Malaysian public what exactly his role was as a senior police officer. He has arrested me without disclosing his identity to me. He also did not tell me why I was arrested. I get to find out his identity and the reason for arresting me from other police officers.He should not have also intervened with the investigation and played a role in locking me up for a night at the Puchong police station.  

DSP Lim Ming Seah’s behaviour and action was most awkward and unbecoming as a senior police officer. He should not have taken side in a quarrel between MPSJ and the hotel operators. We want Selangor police to check whether he has any links with other vice activities in the Puchong area.

I must thank all leaders, members and supporters who came to the Puchong police station tio express their concern or extending their assisstance to me. I was touched by the SG who rushed over from Seremban the very night. I must also thank Sd Lau Weng San for putting the oral bail and my lawyer Sdri Tiew Wey Keng for speeding up my release. The list was simply too long and simply not possible for me name all of them one by one here. Xie Xie Ni Men!

Liu held over obstructing cops and council workers

SUBANG JAYA: DAP central executive committee member Ronnie Liu allegedly tried to stop enforcement officers from sealing a budget hotel in Puchong Jaya, near here. He was detained at about 6.30pm on Friday and released at 4pm yesterday.

Liu, who was arrested for allegedly obstructing the police and Subang Jaya Municipal Council enforcement officers from sealing the place, was questioned at the Subang Jaya district police headquarters.

“We will forward our investigation papers to the authorities for further action,” said district police chief Asst Comm Zainal Rashid Abu Bakar.

He said the police had raided the hotel on Thursday and had rounded up 23 women – 19 Chinese nationals and four Vietnamese – who had been hiding in two secret cubicles.

“The women are being questioned and will be handed over to the immigration authorities once investigations are completed,” added ACP Zainal Rashid.

Twelve men were also picked up.

ACP Zainal Rashid said Liu had gone to the place on Friday when the police and council officers were about to seal the premises.

He claimed Liu verbally abused the policemen and council workers.

ACP Zainal Rashid said police were still looking for the hotel owner.

林冠英赴警局了解 2007/11/03 17:33:35
南洋商报 民主行动党秘书长林冠英获知该党全国宣传秘书及非政府组织局主任刘天球在刑事法典第186(阻碍公务员执行公务)下被捕后,昨晚特地从森州芙蓉赶抵雪州蒲种警局了解情况。 尽管林冠英已向雪州总警长拿督卡立和蒲种警局局长交涉,但截至今日凌晨1时45分,刘天球仍未获释。

今晚与林冠英一起前往警局的行动党高层包括财政兼武吉免登区国会议员方贵伦。

林冠英说,虽然他不清楚整件事的来龙去脉,但警方最近常援引刑事法典第186条文逮捕公众的作法已经滥权。

刘天球昨日接到通知,于傍晚6时赶到蒲种一间廉价酒店充当中间人时,可能因言语上挑起群众情绪,遭现场驻守维持秩序的警方阻挠。

晩上7时,他右手被扣上手铐,遭3名警员上警车。 市會查封廉價酒店風波
驅逐住客太魯莽
民眾斥打擊我國旅遊業China Press(蒲種3日訊)民眾對梳邦再也市議會採取強迫手段驅趕蒲種某間廉價酒店住客,以展開查封行動,感到不滿! 他們認為,酒店住客是消費者,他們已付費入住酒店,結果在沒有獲得任何賠償,還遭到驅逐,當局未免太不近人情。 他們說,即使是酒店業者觸犯條例,當局也不應拿住客開刀,迫使他們馬上搬離,而應是採取更有效解決方案。 蒲種居民指出,當局此舉已嚴重打擊我國旅遊業,昨晚的查封風波也讓住在內的外國遊客看到我國執法人員解決問題手法,令他們對我國留下不好印象。 他們說,尤其是這么一鬧,以后那還有人敢在蒲種區租酒店住,難道不怕睡到半夜被人拍門吵醒。 《中國報》走訪蒲種再也山莊肯那里商業區一帶,群眾紛對該區某廉價酒店昨晚查封風波,發表不同意見。 一些居民認為,當局處理手法不妥當,惹來住客不滿情緒,而且 當局也沒有權力驅趕住客,因酒店又不是發生命案或接獲炸彈投報。 他們笑說,如果是命案或接獲炸彈投報,相信無需當局請,相信即使是在半夜,住客也會漏夜離開。 不過,一些商家指出,自酒店昨晚被正式查封后,今早該地區突然多出很多泊車位,地區也顯得冷清一片,沒有以往般熱鬧市會兩大理由拒批執照
無牌酒店偷偷營業
報導:葉愛雲、陳玉明

當局使用查封塑膠帶把酒店圍上,並用鐵鍊深鎖,不讓任何人進入。

(吉隆坡3日訊)八打靈再也市政廳及梳邦再也市議會以兩大理由,拒絕批准營業執照給多間廉價酒店,惟酒店業者鋌而走險,繼續在法眼下無牌營業! 在上述兩個地方政府管轄區內,有超過14間無牌廉價酒店。 消息指出,八打靈再也擁有超過10間無牌廉價酒店,坐落在八打靈舊區、上城一帶。 當地面積窄狹,人口稠密,在沒有泊車位情況下,市政廳批絕批發執照給酒店業者。 至於梳邦再也市議會管轄範圍,擁有至少4間無牌廉價酒店,分佈在蒲種一帶。 這些酒店的裝修及設計,與之前提呈給市議會的圖測有出入,因此市議會拒發執照,促請業者依據實情重新提呈圖測。 據《中國報》瞭解,除了上述兩大理由,其余構成市議會拒發執照給酒店理由,包括防火設備不足、沒有后樓梯等。 無論如何,其余地方政府卻否認存有無牌酒店,包括莎阿南市政廳、士拉央市議會、安邦再也市議會。 另外,加影市議會強調,當地僅有一間位于無拉港的酒店沒有營業執照,其余新舊酒店皆是合法營業。 沒嚴厲執法

蒲種再也山莊某廉價酒店被指沒有營業執照遭市議會查封。

值得關注的是,部分地方政府雖已鑑定無牌酒店,然而並沒有嚴厲執法,結果大部分無牌酒店依然營業。 八打靈再也市政廳則是基于人道立場上,有意把無牌酒店合法化,目前正在設法解決泊車位問題。 另一方面,本報嘗試電訪相關酒店,可惜業者大耍太極,沒有正面回應無牌一事。 向吉隆坡新山取經
市會設小組助合法化 八打靈再也市政廳向吉隆坡及柔佛新山取經,以解決泊車位問題,將無牌酒店合法化。 百樂鎮區州議員拿督林春景指出,市議會已成立一個專門小組,研究如何合法化無牌酒店。 許多外地投資者、商家前來八打靈再也,需要一個居住的地方,因此酒店的設立符合供需原理,市政廳並不排斥它們的存在。林春景也說,如果市政廳拒發執照給酒店,那麼難保業者會轉為經營黃色架步,屆時引起更嚴重的問題。 一旦市政廳決定把酒店合法化,或會要求涉及業者承擔部分停車場興建費用,或是向市政廳租賃泊車位。林春景說,市政廳也有不定期檢查酒店,之前曾經充公無牌酒店的財物。 另外,蓮花苑區州議員葉樹山指出,當地並沒有無牌酒店,因為安邦再也市議會,從不刁難申請開酒店的業者。 市民是納稅人,如果他們有意在本身的產業經營一些生意,再加上符合市議會的條規,市議會沒有理由拒絕。他認為,酒店最關鍵的條件是必須擁有完善防火設備及緊急通道,在發生火災或緊急事故時,顧客能夠及時逃生。 房費低廉受歡迎 盡管雪隆地區大部分廉價酒店皆無牌營業,但低廉房費依然深受旅客歡迎,住客源源不絕。 雪隆區內擁有等級的普通酒店,一晚住宿費至少需要120令吉以上,反觀廉價酒店一晚只需25令吉至100令吉,部分廉價酒店設備還不比星級酒店遜色。 除了規模較小但美觀的廉價酒店,部分廉價酒店也設有時鐘出租客房供住客選擇,讓旅客可休息片刻再出外辦事,時鐘房價介於25令吉至30令吉。 廉價酒店主要分佈在吉隆坡市區和興旺的商業區,超低廉的房價深受自助和背包旅客喜愛,家庭旅客及銷售員也是廉價酒店主要客戶群,部分廉價酒店也被放上國際酒店介紹網頁或深受網友歡迎。 新穎廉價酒店設備相當齊全,環境也不錯,即使部分酒店建築結構及環境欠理想,如房內沒窗口、只有基本設備如床舖和小幾、洗澡間設在房外等,住客也不介意。 據瞭解,住客租房只求環境舒服,一般都不會深入瞭解酒店有否整齊全安全措施如消防喉、消防器等,也不會留意酒店有沒合法營業執照。 據瞭解,由於現有的酒店營業執照申請條件相當苛刻且繁文縟節多,只要無法取得任何一個政府單位批准,地方政府也不會批准營業執照申請。 目前,業者面對最大阻撓是消防設備,尤其消拯局要求業者裝設消防喉,但部分小型或舊式酒店難以安裝消防喉,或在每間裝設滅火器。 為此,很多業者為免虧損,都會在申請執照期,冒著無牌營業的風險預早開業。 黃安鎮:申請條例苛刻
業者被逼鋌而走險 雪隆廉價酒店協會主席黃安鎮指出,政府過于苛刻的酒店設備條件,導致許多廉價酒店業者無法取得營業執照,被逼鋌而走險營業。 他說,政府目前仍沿用獨立之后設定的酒店條例,且以星級酒店為準,廉價酒店則是近年才興起的行業,因此很多條例都不符現時環境,對廉價酒店更是嚴苛的要求。 他舉例,消拯局規定有酒店都需有消防喉,每間房也需裝設火災警報系統,但很多廉價酒店規模很小,有些連客房都不到10間,要業者如何去執行相關條例。 他強調,各區地方政府的條例和操作方式也不同,讓業者無所適從。 業者辦好一切事務準備開業,因某項條例不合格而無法取得營業執照,面對極大虧損,業者唯有無牌開業。他說,廉價酒店主要客戶群為背包及自助旅客,家庭和銷售員客戶則胥視酒店營業地區。 他坦言,政府近年也為業者提供不少協助,惟申請條例方面仍欠理想,該會正與政府商討修改部份過于苛刻的條例。 2無牌酒店
同一業者 蒲種兩間無牌營業酒店,相信為同一名業者所擁有! 據悉,蒲種原本擁有6間無牌營業的廉價酒店,不過兩間已倒閉,其余4間皆基于一些原因不獲執照。 其中一間位于蒲種再也山莊肯那里商業區的酒店,日前已遭執照人員取締,50名住客半夜遭驅逐,引起軒然大波。 另外兩間酒店相信是同一名業者所擁有,分別是因為消防設備不足,及建築圖測不符合規格,無法取得執照。 本報聯絡這兩間酒店時,發言人承認酒店沒有窗戶,但卻強調置有滅火筒,不過拒絕談論詳請,也不願意回應有關無牌營業的指責。 還有一間在蒲種營業的酒店,建築圖測已被批准,不過基于一些技術問題,還未取得執照,但問題不嚴重,相信較后會發出執照。 金鑾區州議員高祥威指出,業者在申請開設酒店前,必須先獲批准策劃及建築圖測,然后再申請營業執照。 酒店無法獲得執照,大部分原因是建築物設計及裝修,與之前呈交給市議會的圖測有出入。他說,市議會數年來不間斷地取締無牌酒店,也曾經拆除酒店招牌。 他強調,市議會鼓勵人們來投資開酒店,但希望酒店符合規格,以及在合法的情況下營業,確保住戶安全。 陳女士:逐客手法太過分
★34
歲,點心樓老闆娘 我覺得當局驅逐住客手法太過分了,住客是無辜的,當局沒有權力趕他們走,而且其中還有一些外國遊客被當局此舉嚇壞。 這不單有損政府形象,也影響了我國旅遊業,讓外國人誤以為我國政府是如此對待遊客。 當局要查封酒店也應與有關方面談妥,而不是逼住客搬離,因住客已付了酒店入住費,他們有權不走。 龔嫦玲:突然多了泊車位
★23
歲,中藥店助手 我昨天剛好休息,不知道酒店發生甚么事,今早一來到就很奇怪,怎么附近空出很多泊車位,平時都是很多車。 若是一般週六都會看到酒店很多住客在早上出來吃早餐,可是今早卻不見人影,后來始知酒店被查封了。 由于酒店旁有一間卡拉OK,不久前警方曾來掃蕩,逮捕了不少中國女郎。 丘真溧:擔心發生衝突
★40
歲,藥劑行負責人 沒想到一場查封風波竟可以拖上兩天才告段落,昨晚情況真令人擔心,當看到越來越多執法人員和警方出現,場面氣氛緊張。 我看到很多公眾跑上前圍觀湊熱鬧,也真替他們擔心,尤其是看到警方持槍械進入酒店,擔心萬一裡面起沖突,公眾會否不小心被子彈射傷。 幸好,在沒有發生任何不愉快事件下,風波終算平息下來,希望當局以后處理此問題應更加謹慎,以公眾安全為重
