MANAN
BI./KIT SERDANG -Pihak
Majlis' Perbandaran Subang
Jaya (MPSJ) kecewa dengan
sikap segelintir pengusaha
premis pusat siber di bawah
kawasan pentadbimnnya yang
dikesan masih menjalankan
perniagaan tanpa lesen malah beroperasi sehingga24
jam sehari.
Dalam serbuan yang dilakukan ke atas dua premis
di Taman Bukit Serdang dan
Taman Universiti Indah' di
sini awal pagi semalam, pihak MPSJ mendapati terdapat
remaja di bawah umur18 tahun masih melayari internet
dan bermain permainan video
walaupun waktu itu melebihi
jam 2 pagi.
Operasi
membanteras
premis perniagaan tanpa lesen itu diketuai pegawai
Penguat kuasa MPSJ, Ainol
Salnee Salim dengan bantuan 27 anggotanya.
Jurucakap
Bahagian
Perhubungan Awam MPSJ
berkata, salah sebuah daripada
premis yang diserbu semalam
mempunyai lesen tetapi gagal
mematuhi waktu operasi yang

ditetapkan iaitu melebihi jam
12 tengah malam.
.
Katanya, pengusaha terbabit melanggar akta Undangundang Kecil21 (3)Pusat Siber
MPSJ 2007 yang membawa
tindakan sitaan premis manakala barang-barangberupa
unit komputer dirampas.
"Pengusahajuga boleh dikenakan tindakan kompaun
RMl,OOO kerana melanggar
syarat-syarat permohonan lesen dan undang-undang yang
telah ditetapkan pihaknya.
"Manakala sebuah lagi
pusat siber yang rliserbu semalam tidak mempullyai lesen perniagaan sah malah
turnt menjalankan operasi
melebihi waktu ditetapkan,"
katanya.
Katanya,
pengusaha
pre-
mis pusat siber di Taman
UniversitiIndah itu didapati
melanggar akta UndangUndangKecil Pusat Siber
MPSJ 2007di bawah Seksyen
3 yang membawa tindakan
tutup premis dan sitaan unit
komputer.
"Operasi ini dijalankan.
kerana kita menerima aduan
daripada orang ramai yang
mendakwa anak-anak mereka sering pulang lewat kemna berada di dalam pusatpusat siber ini.
"Malah ada juga yang
mengadu
berlakunya
kecurian
tanpa lesen di Taman Universiti
di rumah, apabila kanak-kanak
yang kini sedang bercuti sekolah menghabiskan duit mereka
serta ada yang sanggup mencuri untuk bermain permainan
video di situ;' katanya.
Menurut sumber itu lagi,
pihaknya juga kesal kemna
ada pemilik yang sanggup
.mengetepikan
undang-un'dangsemata-mata mahu nie"
ngautkeuntungan
lebih dengan beroperasi Z4jam sehari
tanpahenti.
"Perkara ini juga boleh
meningkatkan gejala sosial
kerana kanak-kanak di bawah
- umur yang sepatutnya berad.a
di rumah masih menghabiskan
masa mereka di pusat-pusat si-
ber tanpakawalan
"Sehubungan
itu peng-
usaha siber diingatkan suray~ mengikut
garis panduan
dan undang-undangclitetapkan bagi mengelakkan

A
N illegal CYberCafe at Taman Universiti
Indah in Seri Serdang was raided by an
enforcement team from the Subang jaya
Municipal Council (MPSj) in the early hours of
Thursday.
.
The . premises .was one of the two cybercafes
.
monitored by the MPSj enforcement personnel as
part of the local authority's war on errant and illegal cybercafe operators.
'The illegal premises was' sealed at 2.45am after
checks confirmed that it had no licence to operate
the business.
.
There were more than 30 customers, mostly
teenagers, in the premises at the time of the raid.
The operator was issued with compound notice
under the Cyber Centre By-laws 3 MPSj 2007 which carried a maximum fine of RMl,OOO.
The premises was sealed and the operator
warned not to reopen it or he would be subjected
to legal action.
According toa MPSj spokesman, the operator
had applied for a licence in December last year but
was rejected.
The MPSj officer said the cybercafe was raided
following complaints from residents that it had
been operating till dawn. causing unhealtliy social
problems among the young people in the area.
"The residents complained that teenagers have
been spending a lot of time and money playing
games at the outlet," he said.
According to a resident who asked noUo be
identified, the cybercafe has beenoperating in the
area since last year and it had been a nuisance to
the residents.
"The customers make a lot of noise and many
residents, especially those staying nearby, have
complained that they have been having their sleep
disturbed," he said.
'The operator has failed to respond to the complaints and he deserves this action," the resident
said.

Listening hard: Ean Yang and Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeah chairing the meeting with the association.
Local business dilemma
D
ISCRIMINATION
against local
industry players and corrupt
practices have been cited as
the main causes for the existence of
illegal factories in Selangor.
Accordingto Selangor and Kuala
Lumpur Foundry and Engineering
Industries Association(SFEIA)president Fan See Hai,the local industry
players were often snubbed by the
authorities, who seemed to show
preference to the foreign businessI men and investors.
Fan said this during a dialogue
with Selangor State New Village
Development and Illegal Factory
Task Force Committee chairman Ean
Yong. Hian Wah in Shah Alam on
Tuesday.
"As Malaysians,we face a lot of
hassle even before we can start our
businesses while the foreign
investors have everything made so
easy for them whether it is in making land applications, constructing
factories or starting operations," Fan
Discrimination and graft the
reasons for illegal factories
said.
.
He said the process of setting up a
legal factory by a localbusinessman,
for example, could take as long as
three years for approval to be granted,
"Unlessthe factory owner has lots
of time and money to spend, the setting up of the factory would have
been doomed before it could even
start operations," Fan said.
"On top of that, we face a lot of
pressure from the authorities, especially the local governments,
because we have to pay all sorts of
'extra charges' for all kind of applications," he said.
Fan said his association had 330
members, mostly among small- and
medium"scale industries operators,
but 45% of them were operating
without permits or business licences
while others occupied land witHout
industrial status.
He said that the total number of
unlicensed factories in the state was
/f'
much more than the figure on the
association's list
According to Fan, illegal factory
problems have existed since the
independence of the country.
,
Fansaid the associationhoped the
new Pakatan Rakyat state government would bring changes and
ensure fairer treatment for local Fan: 'We face a lot of hassle evejp'

"The OSC scheme ,was, meant. to

Yeoh, however, insisted that the
local authorities should check that
everything was in order before
authorising the issuing of a CF.
She said that when a CF was
issued, it meant that the place had
been certified fit for occupation and
that everything was in place.
Yeoh said it was time for the local
authorities to be stricter with developers.
"Most developers are not involved
in just one project, but have' other
developmenfschemes.

Liu admitted that such c::aseshappened .dueto the easy certifications
by the local coul1cils.
"The state will ensure that the
local councils will closely monitor
the development projectS from now
on. The local authorities should be
more careful when issuing CFs or
giving approvals," he said.,
"I'll work with all council presidents to make the necessary changes
and revise the existing guidelines
that are deemed not good," Liu said.
"We urge the people to give us
their views and suggestions on how
