TRENDING Audit reports YourSay/VoxPop Education Government spending Religion Mat rempit accuse Penang CM of racism

About 200 mat rempit held a noisy demonstration at the historic Clock Tower near the Penang state legislative assembly building today, demanding a 'racing track' for their use.
The group, led by Shahabuddin Ahmad - a representative of Pertubuhan Islam Gabungan Amal - lined the area with their motorcycles about 1pm and honked noisily for about 15 minutes before the police dispersed them.
NONETheir mission appeared political as most of the bikers were wearing yellow T-shirts with the words  ‘LGE racist’ - a reference to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng - and ‘Save Penang’.
They also unfurled banners reading Mahu litar lumba (We want a racing track).
Five protestors, including Shahabuddin, were detained by the police who had been trailing some members of the group from Komtar, the state's administrative building.
It is learnt that the mat rempit had proceeded from Penang Road to the state legislative assembly building along Light Street.
During the arrests, a minor scuffle broke out between the police and several protestors who were shouting. One threw his helmet on the ground.
azlanParts of the Komtar building had earlier been defaced with graffiti reading Guan Eng tipu Melayu (Guan Eng has lied to the Malays), but it is not known if the group was behind this.
Georgetown OCPD Gan Kon Meng said the group had planned to hand a memorandum to Lim over several issues affecting them.
"We allowed them to submit the memorandum because we are a democracy. But if (any gathering) is not peaceful, it can create chaos and cause lost of property," Gan said.
Those held will be investigated for illegal assembly under Section 27(5) of the Police Act.
Told of complaints of police violence during the arrest, he said it was probably because the protestors had resisted enforcement action.
'Political agenda'
NONEHowever, Komtar assemblyperson and Lim's political secretary Ng Wei Aik (right) was upset with Gan for not doing his work professionally.
Ng said Gan should explain why he allowed the 'illegal' protest when this was clearly "a politically-oriented rally".
"Asking for a racing track was merely an excuse. I do not think it is related. All demonstrations (here) are easily linked to Umno," he alleged.
"Someone sold Umno's agenda to them. If it is not political, why do they say ‘LGE racist,’ when mat rempit are only mostly interested in racing?"

Seals: This is a Joke of the year... a dying party using Mat Rempit ?  Every other state has a racing track for Mat Rempits?  LOL! LOL! LOL! And LGE did not allow in Penang? Anyone with brains can smell the agenda.

Why OCPD allowed it? When it other state you will see a water gun in the other state?

Man says wife pushed, dragged and injured by police

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 19, 2011): A 37-year-old businessman alleged that police pushed, dragged and injured his wife, a Chinese national, in an anti-vice raid after mistaking her for a prostitute.
Loh Thean Soo, from Jalan Ipoh, claimed police dragged his wife for several metres 'like an animal’ around 11.30pm on Saturday.
“I went to have dinner with my wife at a restaurant in Jalan Loke Yew and after dinner, my wife went to the car to get my cigarettes when a team of plainclothes police officers ambushed her and pushed her to the ground,” Loh said at a press conference called by DAP Klang legal bureau chairman Tan today.
His wife Ming Daimei, 34, was also present at the press conference and showed the injuries she sustained on her leg.
“After my wife fell, the policemen dragged her like an animal and placed her in a van,” he said.
“I tried to intervene but they ignored me.
“My wife sustained serious injuries on her leg and was bleeding while she was detained overnight at the Dang Wangi police station," Loh said, adding that he went to the police station with his marriage certificate and pleaded with the officers to release his wife but to no avail.
“They even refused to speak to me and treated me and my wife like criminals.
Loh also alleged that he was later accosted by a man claiming he could ‘settle’ the matter with the police and demanded RM2,000 which he claimed to have paid to secure the release of his wife.
Ming was released at 5pm the following day with blood still oozing from her injured leg.
Loh and his wife, accompanied by Tan, on Monday, lodged a report at the Jinjang police station alleging police brutality.
“I want the police to tell me why they detained my wife and why they refused to listen to me despite me producing my marriage certificate.
“I want action to be taken against officers who pushed and dragged my wife," he said.
Loh said he met Ming met during a tour last year and married her in February.
Meanwhile, a City police official confirmed the report and said Sentul police were investigating the matter.
