Penang goes Balkis' way
R. Nadeswaran and Terence Fernandez
PETALING JAYA (April 28, 2008): Penang has joined the ranks of Selangor – transferring money from the wives’ association for “safekeeping” with – Bakti, the federal Association of Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers.
Although the amount is small compared to the RM9.9 million which was transferred by the Association of Wives of State Assemblymen and Members of Parliament in Selangor (Balkis), its Penang equivalent – Bunga Tanjung – could only spare RM350,000. But it’s the principle involved.
In an immediate response, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said he is shocked by the turn of events and asked for the relevant documents, adding that the state government is seeking legal advice.“This is a chaitable organisation and not a Barisan Nasional (BN) organisation or a sendirian berhad. I want Bakti to return the money as soon as possible plus interests. After all, it is in an interest-earning fixed deposit account,” he told theSun.

'Not right for judge to act as adviser to Bakti'
Maria J .Dass
PETALING JAYA (April 29, 2008): It is inappropriate and wholly unacceptable for any member of the judiciary to act as legal adviser or in any legal capacity for any body or person while holding the office of a judge, says the Bar Council."More so if the body or person is associated with a state or federal government or a political party," said its president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan today.
“The Bar Council is deeply concerned by the report in theSun that suggests the involvement of a Court of Appeal judge as legal adviser to Bakti on matters pertaining to the transfer of funds from Association of Wives of State Assemblymen and Members of Parliament in Selangor (Balkis) and its Penang equivalent - Bunga Tanjung,” she told theSun.

These charitable organizations surely are in no mood for charity. Maybe all of their hubbies lost in recent GE? Hence no more "wives of State Assemblymen and Members of Parliament"... Come on, don't be foolish. Really, who is actually giving these lovely ladies legal advice? Lawyers? Judge? Or their hubbies?

The Registrar of Societies should take action, fast. But what about current eligible members and "members-to-be" (wives of those ADUN & MP of Pakatan Rakyat) for those associations, why no injunction and such? Why only polemics in the media? Lache, not good ladies, not good at all. Don't listen to your hubbies. Take immediate action before its too late.
