Reward scheme criticised
CHINA Press has criticised a proposal to offer cash rewards to enforcement officers for nabbing illegal immigrants, saying the move will cost the country millions of ringgit.

It said in an editorial that unofficial estimates put the number of illegals in the country at between 800,000 and a million.

It pointed out that if the Government were to offer RM50 for each one arrested, the rewards could amount to RM50mil.

It said that offering cash rewards to enforcement officers to carry out their duty would also send out the wrong signal and possibly lead to more corruption.

It reminded the authorities that there were already reports of enforcement officers asking for protection fees from illegal immigrants who wanted to avoid arrest.

“With the cash awards system in place, some may exploit the situation and hike the protection fee to make more money,” said the editorial.

The Federation of Chinese Associations has launched a punctuality and time-saving campaign as part of its programmes to inculcate progressive thinking among members of various guilds and associations in the community, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.

The associations had come together to think of ways to ensure that not only punctuality was observed at functions but also ideas on better time-management.

The daily reported that among the suggestions to save time were cutting down the number of dishes served at a functions– ideally to six dishes, reducing the number of speakers and limiting speeches to a few minutes each.

The govt should "out-source" the services like catch illegal, issue summon, and the like to those business minder individual. I am sure these people can generate more in-come to the govt. and at the same time reduce govt. overhead.

Come to think about it, since there is no policemen around when we need them the most, especially during the peak hour and raining season at the busy traffic junction. Why not "out-source" the manning of the routine traffic duty to the public? I think to direct traffic at traffic lights is a no brainer, even " a pat" and house wife will able to do the job, with some training of cause. I am sure they will carry out their duty more deligently and be there when we need them.

With the implementation, retired folks and house wife can earn some income on their spare time. Ideally, they should stay near the traffic junction. AM from 7-10, PM from 5 - 8. Wage = RM10 per hour. Let the local authority pay for it.

Malaysia Bolih or Tak Bolih, it's up to us.

This is a RM50 million business, we can start a new industries, cathing illegals and get rewarded for RM100 each!

People who come out with this idea apparently believe that money can solve the problem. how wrong this can be.

Hi uchangeng,

Thing is not only black or white as you see it. What is your suggestion???

Don't put down something if you can't suggest for the better.

Cheer up, Buddy.

I totally agree with uchangeng. Wildbill, there are no two ways in solving this problem. And giving out reward should not even be suggested at all. It is not the millions of ringgit payout that we should be concern with. We should be more concern on the chaos that will be created. If the authorities cannot manage the situation, then they should resign. They have not look into the repercussion of this reward. Remember when the Shah Alam Municipal Council engaged a private company to rope in stray dogs? There was this issue of overbilling by manifold. The company merely have to submit photo of the stray dogs captured and it was found out that either there are too many cloned dogs roaming around Shah Alam or the photo are showing the same dogs many times. We are only talking about RM 10 per dog and here we are talking about big money - RM 100.00. I can bet you that many will be killed because you are dealing with illegals who are here making a living and especially those with families who will not hesitate to take the law into their own hands. You can see the Ku Klux Klan type of gang marauding the illegal colonies to round up the "herd" just like they did to the blacks. I am sad that the authority in coming up with this stupid idea as in doing so they have down graded these illegals to the same level as the stray dogs. They are humans and as such entitled to be treated equally under the law. Will this lead to the police rewarding from RM 500.00 onwards for every criminal captured depending on how serious the crime? They might as well put the money to better use by rewarding us RM 5,000 for every fake Datuk roped in.

Hi pcyeoh,

I do agree with you. If the authorities cannot manage the situation, then they should resign. If they can't stand the heat, stay out the kitchen.

Keeping up the good job, buddy.
