The haze is back to haunt us!
Was having a meeting at the open space of McDonald's because we felt like having some smokes over a large cup of ice cold coke.
2 hours down the meeting, i started to feel sticky and sick of the smoky air .. it smelt like burnt shit. Half my nostrills were blocked with debris.
Man, what are the fuckin authorities doin bout this? God bless us
On the way to the office this morning, on a red light near my office - i saw this loan shark advertisement. Going green has become such a trend even the ah long's gone green... wtf
Talking bout ah long's, it reminds me of the head of the so called "Four Heavenly Kings" ... 'Shi Da Tien Wang'... or however you spell it in Chinese... who controls all the loan sharking business in the country.
So for those of you who are hopeful that there will be a solution to the loan shark problem, pls fuckin forget about it.
With his influence & relationship with the elite circle in Malaysian politics, the police has got no authority to detain him, let alone the guts to even think about it. He has infiltrated the executives & the judiciary - 2 very key pillars of governance.
Hence today, the solution drawn out by the government to curb loan sharking is to legalize the loan sharks so they are called legal money lenders instead of loan sharks. So the more they convert, the more they get rid of the 'loan shark' problem... isn't this such a common problem in Malaysia?
Here's a quick biography of the Boss of Bosses. Source: http://mt.m2day.org/2008/content/view/17980/84/
Koo Tee Yam, age 45, is believed to control most of the underworld activities in Kuala Lumpur namely loan sharking, pirated discs and goods, prostitution, drugs, illegal gambling and murder. He has also diversified into many legitimate businesses such as discos, clubs, security companies, restaurants, construction and many more. Controlling assets worth more than RM1 billion, he is the head of the so called "Four Heavenly Kings" that controls a large criminal empire in West Malaysia.
Active in politics, it is believed that Koo Tee Yam has sent many triad members to infiltrate MCA, particularly the Bukit Bintang MCA division where he operates vice dens. He was so powerful that then MCA President Ling Liong Sik sent Federal Territory MCA Chief and Deputy Minister for Energy, Telecommunications and Multimedia Tan Chai Ho to enlist him in aid of MCA. However, Koo Tee Yam disliked Ling Liong Sik....
.... During the 2004 General Election, Koo Tee Yam allegedly handed over RM20 million in donations to the Prime Minister personally. The meeting was supposedly arranged by former MCA Youth leader Dato' Seri Kee Yong Wee @ Kee Ah Mat. Since then, he has boasted that the police couldn't touch him. When the previous IGP came to power, incensed with what he heard, arrested Koo Tee Yam under the ISA. The newspapers had a field day on this story. A court found him innocent and ordered him released. The police however swooped in again to arrest him.
Three days later, the Federal Court (Justice Datuk Pajan Singh Gill, Justice Datuk Richard Malanjum and Justice Datuk Augustine Paul) ordered his unconditional released citing that the detainees rights had been circumvented by the police, which is the same argument given by hundreds of ISA detainess to the Federal Court - all shot down and many spent years if not decades under detention. Was corruption involved?
