<font size="+1">Temporary reprieve for MPSJ publicans</font>

PUBLICANS who were issued notices to cease operations by the Subang Jaya Municipal Council following a directive from the Selangor government can rest easy for now.

The council has decided to allow all licensed pubs, restaurants and nightspots in the area to continue operating pending detailed guidelines from the state government.

Subang Jaya Assemblyman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng, who announced this, said, however, there was no guarantee that these outlets would be able to continue operations once the new guidelines were issued.

“For now, all licensed operators can renew their licenses and continue operating,” he said.

Lee said he was aware that a small group of operators who allowed undesirable activities to take place in their outlets were giving a bad name to the rest of the watering holes in the area, most of which are neighbourhood pubs.

He said operators caught flouting the rules, either by having GROs, stripshows or opening after 1am, could have their operating licences revoked immediately.

Council president Datuk Ahmad Fuad confirmed that entertainment outlets and pubs with a good record would not have any difficulty in renewing their licences for the coming year.

“True, the state government has a policy of limiting such outlets to curb undesirable activities, but as of now we allow those who operate clean establishments to continue.”

Ahmad Fuad said going by the current guidelines, very few of these outlets could continue operations.

“Many operators have appealed and we have decided to renew the licences of those with a good track record,” he said..

He added that the municipality had over 70 entertainment outlets, including pubs, discos and lounges.

“At the same time, we will continue sending our men to monitor the areas, and ensure that no illegal and unhealthy activities take place.”

Another example of putting the cart b4 the horse!

Goes to show that "some government" decisions are not
thought out first.

Imagine...our country has become an independent nation
for umteen years, but people do not read history, or do not learn from the history that they read.

3 sens worth!

Somebody once commented Khir Toyo's habit of "Ready, Shoot,
then Aim".

How true, and this is a good testimony.

And MPSJ and Ahmad Fuad jumped the gun when thew
contradicted their own guidelines.

One of the pubs renewed had a record of two brawls per week,
and another had a murder at its premises. Police and
newspapers have the records.

The usjXpress Team, in its pub-hopping trips, have photographic
evidence of law-flouting pubs being renewed their licenses by
MPSJ... And too ready to share the evidence in an ensuing case
against bad governance.

Ah Beng read the game quite well.

<font size="+1">Panel recommends bar-top dancing, all-night pubs</font>
PUB-GOERS could be dancing on bartops in pubs that stay open all night long, if an advisory panel has its way.

The public advisory panel on licensing has submitted these recommendations to the police and will issue a report in a couple of weeks.

The recommendations are likely to be accepted, sources told The Straits Times.

The only condition the panel has set for bartop dancing is that they must be decently clad.

And if nightspots choose to keep on serving for 24 hours they must comply with the relevant safety rules.

Bar owners and pub-goers were full of cheer when told of the recommendations by The Straits Times on Wednesday.
