Pada hari sebelumnya, Beng Hock dipanggil oleh SPRM Selangor di Tingkat 14 Bangunan yang sama sebagai saksi dalam membantu siasatan ke atas tuntutan yang dibuat majikannya yang merupakan seorang YB. Semasa siasatan, Beng Hock disoal siasat selama sekurang-kurangnya selama lapan jam oleh empat orang pegawai penyiasat dalam tiga sessi berbeza. Temubual saksi bertukar menjadi interogasi. Beng Hock tidak dibenarkan pulang. Telefon bimbitnya dirampas. Mereka mahukan akses kepada emel peribadi Beng Hock. Beng Hock disoalsiasat sepanjang malam hinggalah ke subuh. Beng Hock waras, bahagia bersama tunang tercinta yang berada di ambang perkahwinan. Kewarasan itulah membawa kepada kematian -- kematian daripada ketidakwarasan penyiasat.

Animal pound needed for strays

Stray animals have been an increasing problem in major cities everywhere and Seberang Prai in Penang is facing the same. With frequent reports of stray dogs biting people near their residential area, the dog catching teams from Seberang Prai Municipal Council are always on the hunt for adult dogs and sadly sometimes puppies as shown in this footage. Citizen journalist, Jimmy Leow showed the video clips to the Head of Health Services Department of the Seberang Prai Municipal Council , Dr Haji Romli and his team at their headquarters at Seberang Prai, Penang. When questioned if the actions taken by the dog catchers were appropriate, Romli defended the way the puppies were handled and destroyed. Romli added that for years, local councils and their dog catching teams have been criticized for their inhumane ways of catching and destroying stray animals. And that is why a standard operating procedure has been established to tackle this issue, even; the method of termination has evolved from shooting to blow pipe and the latest, by lethal injection to the heart. According to Romli, more than 600 stray animals have been destroyed monthly since the beginning of this year, where 80% are dogs. He added that in comparison with 2011, the figure has in fact, doubled up. The fact that Penang does not have a state run pound for stray animals has led the municipal council to destroy strays once they are caught. But not everything is lost; a vacant land owned by the council at Kongsi 13 nearby will soon be allocated as a pound which can hold at least 1,000 strays according to Romli. Romli said the pound will serve as holding area for strays captured. The public can also check if their missing pets were caught and retrieve them from the pound within a certain time frame.

It belongs to another man called Santok Singh, he represents the 100 families who are facing the same fate. Many have already gone.

Best affordable housing for Penang

The state government has used RM500 million profits from the sale of the land in Bayan Mutiara to build affordable housing on both the island and in Batu Kawan. This is the largest one-off amount allocated by any state government for affordable housing in Malaysia.

The Batu Kawan project consists of 12,000 units of affordable housing and promises to be the best quality affordable housing in Malaysia. The Penang state government passionately believes that poor in Penang deserves a home not a "box" for their children to grow up healthily and safely. Instead of imitating the best, the Penang state government has decided to choose the best planner for affordable housing in the world -- Housing Development Board(HDB) of Singapore.

Penang state government has appointed HDB Singapore only in planning and designing the best quality affordable housing in Malaysia, not in building and constructing which will be appointed by open tender to local contractors. For UMNO to claim that the Penang state government has more faith in Singapore contractors than local contractors in building the affordable is not true as the work has not been tendered out yet.

However the Penang state government makes no apologies for appointing the HDB Singapore as the consultant planners they build the best quality affordable housing in the world. Why is it that when Singapore firms come to Iskandar Johor, they are welcomed and praised but when Singapore firms come to Penang, they are attacked and criticised?
