However, the issue was quickly swept under the carpet by the MB Khir Toyo and Zakaria was left scot-free.
This builts up his confidence in the ensuing period and he becomes braver and braver.
He had come to believe that in BN and in UMNO, as long as you hold high political position and had strong followers and supporters, nobody, absolute nobody, can touch you. Helen called it The Untouchable.
Truly it he was untouchable and even the MB who had depended on him to deliver the votes had to close one-and-a-half eye.
The leaders risk losing his support and votes.
However, tho' there much hue and cry, the issue was suppressed and those who voiced out will suffer detriment.
The MB, when forced to take some action to appease the situation decided that he will only imposed $24,000 fine on the criminal act of non-compliance to statutory requirements. The delinquent will be left unseathed. In fact, three of his family member, including himself will be further appointed as councillors for another term. Thats a great show of power and the rule of the oligarchy.
However, in the words of Mahaguru58 : [Quote] What bloody hell kind of justice is that? Why are they using kid gloves to see to it that this blatant injustice is all that is the due judgement of these blatant crimes by this fellow? For crying out loud, this is a clear case of selective punitive punishing of a corrupt local authority official by those whom I am sure have vested interests in the culprit![Unquote]
Mahaguru58 continues with his prayer:
O Allah! This is the state of affairs of our socalled 'Islam Hadhari' government!
You judge them accordingly O Allah, for their transgressions and scapegoating Your Deen and Your Laws O Lord!
Allah must have heard the cries and prayers.
The "bad luck" of Zakaria continues ...
Now, he do not have the "Royal Protective Clothings" on his body. The administrators had to proceed to act on anything that was against the law.
Episode no 2: The DZ Satay House restaurant
DZ (Datuk Zakaria) Restaurant was located a stone’s throw from his Istana Idaman mansion in Kampung Idaman here, was sealed on 26th Oct. by MPK.
“Yes, it has been sealed because the restaurant sits on JKR (Public Works Department) reserve land, which is state land,” municipal councillor Datuk Teh Kim Poo said yesterday. ”Furthermore, the restaurant does not have any temporary occupancy licence or a business licence."
Teh,was queried about the MPK’s unfair action to “close one eye” over the matter, said that sealing off Zakaria’s satay restaurant was not enough. He said it must be demolished as well. He thanked the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, for his concern.
But why did it take Datuk Teh Kim Poo so many years to act? Wasn't it clear that he is "powerless" to act or the fact that it was "I scratch your back, you scratch mine?"
It is clear that all the councillors and those in power and with authority, nobody can touch anyone in UMNO. MCA and Gerakan, they are mere stooges and toothless. They shout and cry and put up a brave face in front of the rakyat, but they are useless and they had no power to act within the corrupt system. They only can demolish illegal squatters and signboards of shops that belongs to the ordinary citizen. They can do nothing, perhaps, even when a felony is committed by the oligarchy ...
So what did it tells us? Will episode no:3 surface soon/ What about Mazlynoor mansion? No more news?
