PENANG GOVT – WHO LICENSED STUDIO 69?

Dr Jacob George is president and legal adviser to the Consumers Association of Subang and Shah Alam (Cassa)

Do the laws in Malaysia allow such activities that are presumed in my legally trained mind – a public nuisance to continue right to the early hours of the morning?

Are there no laws to prevent the patrons who are mostly teenagers and young Muslim women from consuming alcohol and according to allegations all forms of stimulants, ecstasy tablets and other soft and hard drugs?

Why was the Batu Feringghi Police hesitant to respond to hundreds of calls from both local and foreign tourists and the management of the said hotel to this nuisance? – Dr Jacob George

PENANG GOVT – WHO LICENSED STUDIO 69?

the block seriously affected by the nuisance!Studio 69 is left of this building!

Have you or your family ever being kept awake from 11pm right to 4am with loud intolerable music, DJs and the loud screams of drunk and drugged women screaming and their men howling literally?

Screams and more and more screams fill the night and early hours that frightened my young ones asleep!

The hotel management unable to do any thing but repeatedly complain to deaf ears and compile a huge file on patron complains and offer reduced room rates or even change rooms and free meals to angry and irritated customers!

They have done well under the circumstances!

No, not a page from Wolf man 2 but a reality!

Yes, it is shocking despicable, unruly, an eyesore, a classic example of the presence of organized crime networks at work and worst, a public nuisance and certainly questions and allegations of organized crime and of corruption in enforcement circles can be raised!

These are not just my feelings but that of many local and foreign tourists (from West Asia, the Gulf countries, Australia, Holland, Indonesia, Germany, England, Spain, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Africa) who stayed at Holiday Inn Batu Feringghi in Penang who spoke to me recently during my stay there!

Now more pertinent how did a single storey building in Batu Feringghi  attain their license to operate a club with such intensity music right next to hotel rooms where local and international tourists stay?

Are there no laws to enforce, guidelines on single storey bungalow and building as such which are converted into a high density and octave noise producers?

Do the laws in Malaysia allow such activities that are presumed in my legally trained mind – a public nuisance to continue right to the early hours of the morning?

Are there no laws to prevent the patrons who are mostly teenagers and young Muslim women from consuming alcohol and according to allegations all forms of stimulants, ecstasy tablets and other soft and hard drugs?

Why was the Batu Feringghi Police hesitant to respond to hundreds of calls from both local and foreign tourists and the management of the said hotel to this nuisance?

The Police cannot deny as I certainly made several calls myself and waited for them to show up as I walked into the Studio 69 premise in the early hours observing each and every action of the operators and patrons!

They never arrived when I was out there in the early hours – for more than 3 hours!

But all the same – it was despicable more so when these young girls were then ‘vomiting and falling all over’ the place which includes the abandoned stalls by the side of the entrance as eagerly waiting boyfriends or ‘customers’ trying to push them into their cars and some refusing to enter!

Their ‘clothes were falling apart’ and it was not a pretty sight!

These were young pretty Muslim women and it was a pity that my immediate call to a high ranking Police officer’s mobile went unanswered!

I spoke to these girls while helping them to clean up and learnt aplenty!

But Penang’s Batu Feringghi is fast becoming like other places – a site of ‘syndicated crimes and criminals’ and I will address this with my dear friend, Home Minister Hishamuddin who tolerates no such nonsense.

There are many illegals and foreigners also doing all kind and nature of business without detection!

Why?

I managed to speak to the Police the next day and they tell me of the lack of manpower as they cover a rather large area!

They apologized.

I do feel sorry for them if this is indeed true and will take this up with the command center in Bukit Aman and with IGP Musa Hassan.

I will also alert my KPDNKK Enforcement Units to stop ‘pussy footing’ as well and detain all those in violation of the trades mark or copyrights laws of the country whose business flourish in the Batu Feringghi walk ways!

It is going to be a tall order as this is indeed syndicated and all the players carry ‘walkie talkies’ to alert them of any purported move by the authorities or may have well paid informers alerting them of impending raids!

More so why these raids must come from out of state organized by a task force known to be clean to the core and success orientated!

But for now my call to the Penang government is close down Studio 69 in the public interest!

I will send a personal SMS to Deputy Chief Minister who is a friend and trust he will initiate much needed action!

If that fails I will have no other alternatives but to send my TV friends to do an undercover sting operation to cover this nuisance and interview the local and foreign patrons!
