Cops among four nabbed during drug party

Posted: 06 Apr 2014 09:00 AM PDT

GEORGE TOWN: Two policemen, a man and a woman were nabbed for holding a "drug party" at a budget hotel in Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah here.

When a state narcotics team found them, the four were high on methamphetamine, also known as ice, during the 3pm raid on Saturday.

The four were in a semi-conscious state when police stormed the room.

Initial probe revealed that the two policemen, aged 26 and 30, had been in the force for more than four years.

Penang police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Abdul Rahim Hanafi said the case had been classified under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 after they all tested positive for drugs.

He said police would not tolerate any wrongdoing by its personnel as it would tarnish the image of the force.

"The two policemen have been remanded to facilitate investigations," SDCP Abdul Rahim said. "We have also suspended them."

We took a stand based on law, MCA tells Perkasa

Posted: 06 Apr 2014 09:00 AM PDT

KUALA LUMPUR: MCA Youth has hit back at Perkasa over allegations that the party was meddling in the country's Islamic affairs.

Its Legal Bureau chief Eric Choo Wei Sern stressed that neither the bureau nor the MCA did this.

He said all the party did was to take a stand based on the existing laws of the country.

He said PAS' hudud law was inconsistent with what had been entrenc­hed in the Federal Constitution.

"Furthermore, the PAS administration has a track record of imposing Islam law on non-Muslims," Choo said.

"Therefore, it is MCA's responsibility and duty to oppose and stop any attempts by PAS that will jeopardise the peace and harmony of the country," he said, calling on Perkasa to respect Malaysia's law and judicial system.

Last week, Kelantan announced that it would table a private Bill in Parliament that would seek a declaration to implement hudud law in the state.

Choo also refuted Perkasa's claims that MCA was biased and silent over the use of the word "Allah".

He urged all parties to be patient over the issue pending the Federal Court's judgment.

"We not only did not remain silent, a group of MCA lawyers also held a watching brief in court," Choo pointed out. "This shows the sincerity and persistence of the party to find a legal solution based on the law through the justice system — unlike Perkasa which only demonstrated outside the court during the case."
