Super Efficient Govt Service

PCB to open counter for complaints vs GMI

(Bernama) - The Public Complaints Bureau (PCB) will open a special counter at Jalan Masjid India, Kuala Lumpur on Saturday for shopkeepers and traders to report on the losses and damages incurred during a demonstration last Saturday.

Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk T Murugiah said the shopkeepers and traders were required to produce documents and proofs of their losses and damages.

The complaints will enable the PCB to assist the shopkeepers and traders in suing the organiser of the demonstration, Movement for the Abolition of the ISA (GMI), for their losses and damages, he told reporters here today.

The counter will be opened from 10am to 10pm.

He said the PCB was ready to cooperate with the Federal Territories Umno Youth Division, which had offered free legal consultation to shopkeepers and traders who want to sue the GMI.

Murugiah yesterday received a complaint from the Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman Night Market Traders Association, which claimed its members had suffered RM500,000 losses and damages due to the demonstration.

About 10,000 people and opposition party members took to the streets in the capital in an anti-ISA demonstration on Saturday, forcing shops and shopping complexes to shut down.


Wa...So people-friendly hor the gamen now!

Hey, Murugiah. Why not you work your magic on other Ministries ah?

Start with the town councils, can or not? My experience of them is terible, just terrible.

I just need a simple renewal of my business license. But I was told that I had to find out the owners details of my neighbouring lots from the Land office and submit to the town council in question. Reason? They wanted to send a letter to the owners to find out if they have any objections to my business being located there. I said I had been in business in the exact same location for the past 10 years, nobody complained.

No dice.

I said I never faced such requirements before.

Rules were rules.

I said my business was children's education, where's the problem in that? There was a TATTOO PARLOUR downstairs from my centre. If anyone has objections, it should be ME!

Sorry. Speak to the officer if you have any questions.

So I got to spend hundreds of ringgit to ask the owners who are not even using the shoplots whether they would like to have me as their tenants neighbours. I asked how long the entire process is gonna take.

"About 2-3 months."


My wife even worse.

She has been trying to get her business license transferred (after she took over the business) for almost 4 months now. When she first went to the relevant department, she was given a checklist of things to present. A week later, she returned with all the documents. There was no news for about 2 weeks after that. After many frustrating unanswered calls, she finally made another 45-minute drive way back to the govt dept in question, only to be told that she had not submitted any of the required documents. She was told that she still had to bring such and such and such documents.

Funny thing was, she could see her envelope on the table chopped with the words "Dokumen Tak Lengkap" or something. Funnier thing was, she could see the required documents scattered about on the table! But there was no talking to these guys, so she had to make another trip to the dept and resubmitted all the documents that they already had in the first place. This time she made sure that they stapled everything together and acknowledged receipt. Another few weeks of waiting and unanswered phone calls.

Finally, she paid them another visit. THIS time they told her that her application could not be processed because she had failed to submit the relevant documents. She said that she had submitted everything - TWICE! THAT's when they rattled off another list of documents (mostly just beaurocratic letters crap) she had to submit together with her original application.

So, she went back to prepare the "invisible" checklist of necessary documents. After she had done the necessary, she went back the following week. That's when they slapped her with a THIRD set of required documents!! That's when she got mad at them! The officer gave her an envelope and asked her to submit the documents in only THAT envelope, seal it and pass it to him personally. Trouble was, he wasn't going to be around for 2 weeks.

Furious, she returned two weeks later with the documents and submitted the documents to him. Then he told her:

"This is gonna take about a month or 2 to process!"

In the words of Patrick Teoh:



  1. This is what makes us so fed up of the system. Whatever benefits them, is set up and working (12 hours a day).

    If only we had government departments serving us from 10 am to 10 pm!!! How convenient it would be for us to settle issues after normal work hours.... Hah!!!! Only in my wildest dream lah!

  2. It is undeniable that malays are stupid, incapable and lazy. Why don't they just humbly admit the facts and repent and learn from other races especially Chinese?

    What is the point to argue here and wasting time again?

    From the first onwards we were merely telling the truths. It wasn't us who think that way but their own Badawi as well.

    All malays should go and read the newspaper, even Badawi is ashamed of maintaining the NEP after 34 years of implementing it and these malay baboons are still asking for it.

    Even Badawi wanted them to compete on a level playing field.

    So what does all these tell the world? It sends a very clear message that it is malays themselves who are incapable and lazy and they don't even want to admit it and make a change!

    That is the biggest shame of all.

    Can't you see, it is all back to square one. Year in, year out, some talk for half an hour, some one, some two. Some sing, many belt out their most recent released 'pantun'.

    After all. Malays are good at that. Suggestions after suggestions, some good, some impossible to realize.

    But, do you see any of these materialised? Hardly. Why, why and why???

    Because the malays can never change. Never! Why?

    The leaders forgot it or were they simply didn't want to address and admit that the actual disease is the malays and the remedy itself is also, the malays. They can never change. What is it about the malays?

    Firstly as you all know, they are a lazy species. Since the beginning of time they have been like that. Even the encyclopedia called them as lazy people. I think those British with their accent tried to call them 'malas', and if you put 'y' in, it becomes 'malays'.

    Embracing Islam make them a worse lot. Now they have a license to kill anything that gets into their way.

    Malays are ungrateful lot. In reality, they just can't live or open their minds for others. When Mahathir said that they are complacent, they put him in jail. When Mahathir encouraged them to learn English language, they got angry with him, saying it is a 'bahasa penjajah'.

    When other races 'maju', they got angry with them too. That was why at the end of Mahathir his regime, he said this, "I have achieved greatness as a prime minister, but I only fail in one thing, changing the malays."

    Well, nothing to be surprised about anyway since Mahathir is not really a malay, and I guess that was why the malays were angry with him.

    Drug abuse, hate, incest, liberal extremism (culture of miniskirts and gay marriages), murder, parochialism, racism, rape, religious fanaticism, snatch theft, spoilt bratty behavior, tribalism, wife abuse, child abuse, all that is associated with the malay race.

    To them, malay is the biggest impediment towards building a truly Malaysian nation, and should be chucked into the dustbins of history.

    A genetically flawed race cannot be fixed by politically. Nature will take its course and globalization will put them out to pasture.

    What have we got now?

    Brain drain, economic disparity getting wider, poor education system, racial segregation, widespread corruption, inefficiency and uncompetitive on the government departments and others.

    Sad. Sad. Sad. The question asked by many of my fellow Chinese is this - Why can't you just tell the malay peoples to adopt Chinese culture which is superior?

    From research, this peninsular was part of the Siamese empire way before these malays from Indonesia invaded it.

    Still so thick skin, don't want to go back to Indonesia!

  3. good man

    "It is undeniable that malays are stupid, incapable and lazy."

    And it's undeniable that you are a F.U.C.K.E.R.

  4. Its people like good man that makes people like me support the existence of the ISA. What laws do we have to protect us from people who flame racial hatred and cause tension between races?

    Is this why you people want the ISA abolished? So that people like good man can throw such statements and walk away like it means nothing?

  5. Yes2ISA

    i agree beings like "good man" should be held accountable for what they say. but is the ISA the way to do it?

    An Anti-Racism Act would be more appropriate isn't it? Spell out clearly what constitutes hate speech and the consequences of such. Then charge anyone who indulges in it. It's not difficult to do so, a recording or a few witnesses will do.

    Why resort to the ISA?

    As it is now, the ISA's definitions are vague enough and its limitations are few enough to give the Executive absolute power over any rakyat for any reason.

    And the Executive have proven that they are willing to use it on anyone for any reason - even for jailing the reporter who quoted someone who was giving a hate speech!
