Disco In Operation After 25 Raids

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 1 (Bernama) -- Police are puzzled as to why a discotheque at the Summit Shopping Centre, Subang Jaya, here, is still operating despite being raided more than 25 times.

Subang Jaya CID Chief of Operations, ASP Mohamed Zainal Zakaria said prior to last year, the Subang Jaya police had raided the disco 10 times while the Selangor and Bukit Aman police had raided it 15 times.

He said among the offences committed by the disco was operating after the stipulated hours.

"It operates between 7 pm and 7 am when the time allowed for entertainment outlets in Selangor to open is only until 1 am," he said when contacted, here Wednesday.

He said <font color="red">police had sent a report to the Subang Jaya Municipal Council yet no action was taken to seal the premises</font>.

Mohamed Zainal said in a four-hour operation carried out since 4.30 am at the disco, Wednesday, urine tests were conducted on 64 people and 16 of them, aged between 18 and 40 and whose results of the tests were positive, were detained.

He said those detained were six women and 10 men, including a man who attacked a policeman during the raid.

Mohamed Zainal said those detained claimed that their drinks were spiked with drugs to boost sales of alcoholic drinks at the premises.

Damn, it's not really safe there anymore. The only reason I go there is because it's near and Babyland is there. I hope the new mgmt will uplift the place to become more family friendly.

From theSun (Feb 2, frontpage)


Maria J. Dass reports that MPSJ president Mohd Arif Ab Rahman has arranged for a meeting with the officers in charge to get to the bottom of the matter.

"If the police have sent in a report on the matter then <font color="red">the licencing committee should have brought it to our attention, and they will have to explain why they did not do so</font>," he said when contacted.

"It's true that under the Entertainment Enactment the president has the power to shut down a premises in 24 hours, but I admit that I was not aware of the problem pertaining to the outlet in Summit, he added.

"There are two outlets there * one had its licence revoked in May last year, and the other one's licence renewal is pending and awaiting police advice. I will have to check on all this," said Mohd Arif. "<font color="red">We will have another meeting on Monday to get a detailed explanation from the committee on why the problem was kept under wraps</font>," he said.

From <a href="http://www.thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2006/2/3/nation/13290688&sec=nation">The Star</a> (Feb 3):


SUBANG JAYA: THE discotheque in the Summit Shopping Centre in Subang Jaya which had been raided more than 25 times has finally been sealed by the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ).

Council president Datuk Mohd Arif Abdul Rahman said the council had decided to take action against the outlet at the beginning of the year when it failed to close despite several notices sent out to them. [...]

Mohd Arif was speaking to reporters after overseeing the operation to seal the place.

End of story?

Why did it take so long for the place to be closed down?

Maybe the file sudah hilang or maybe the pegawai always pergi minum or ada meeting !

Truly, the ways and mindsets of our Majlis Bandarans are unfathomable by mere rakyat . Do not, repeat, do not, ever question the status quo!

If it takes so slow to shut the place down, dont be surprised at how fast it will take for the place to open back up again...

....Truly, the ways and mindsets of our Majlis Bandarans are unfathomable by mere rakyat . Do not, repeat, do not, ever question the status quo!

At least now the Johor State gomen, with a new State secretary, are trying to change the mindsets of its staff with regards to efficiency and productivity (http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2006/1/25/nation/13207966&sec=nation). Ofcos it takes political will to initiate these steps but at least its a step forward if they want to compete for opportunities with our neighbors down south.

Will our highly excruciatingly inefficient MPSJ and our State gomen follow suit? Hmm...its not election year yet izzit?

I see it a real insult to us all, when top government servants said "I am not aware of the problem......". By the way, Summit is in USJ - the homeground of MPSJ big monumental building which cannot even offer a decent parking space for visitors to pay their bills and summons.

Maybe MPSJ should move to SUmmit - plenty of parking space and the disco can go to mpsj ?

Will the MBJB be able to fire all their unproductive and inefficient staff, or are lay-offs a big no-no as far as it, and the other Majlis Bandarans are concerned?

I am not hopeful that an ingrained culture of apathy, tidak apa-ism and arrogance can be uprooted quickly.

And that's putting it mildly, as most of the rakyat can no doubt testify to!

Well sir, it takes political will to do it and that must be the beginning steps. The rest will follow when there is a need for change. AND MPJB needs to change. Becos of the great competition down south!

As for the rest of the Majlis in this country, there must be an agent of change. Penang is facing one - decreased tourism. As for Selangor? No competition or change needed so semuanya ok!

The drinking holes in Sunway Pyramid open until 4 am in the morning. Do they come under MPSJ's jurisdiction? And there is a police pondok a stone's throw away from the blaring music and patrons of the bars/pubs spilling onto the streets, especially during weekends.

If I am not mistaken, Sunway comes under MPPJ.
