Councillor who took sexual favours sacked - Star

IPOH: Sept 29, 2008

The state government has declared as vacant the post of Perak Tengah district councillor, held by Zul Hassan who is facing a corruption charge and admitted to having accepted sexual favours.

The move which was quickly hailed by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).

“Zul Hassan, who is under investigation by the Anti-Corruption Authority (ACA), had not only issued a statement confessing to illicit sex, but also justified his decision by saying he was induced into committing thw immoral act,” PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said in a statement.

“Such a statement makes a mockery of Pakatan Rakyat’s pledge towards a government that respects the trust of the people,” she said.

Zul Hassan is facing a corruption charge over a development project at Seri Iskandar in Perak Tengah. In a complaint that he lodged against one Mohamad Imran Abdullah, he and businessman Fairul Azrim Ismail admitted having accepted offers to have sex with Chinese nationals.

Mohamad Imran is the complainant in a corruption case in which Zul and four others are the accused.

Zul Hassan had been quoted as saying “what is important is we did not ask for the women. He supplied them to us. If people sedekah (donate), don’t you want to accept it?”

Dr Wan Azizah said the PKR disciplinary committee will deal with Zul Hassan, who will be asked to explain his statement above.

It is a ridiculous explanation there. Zul gave a whole lot of new meaning to the word "Sedekah".
I am not a muslim , but i am as kafir as Nescafe , but i do know what is "sedekah" .Free sex is not a sedekah .But he took the bait.

Corruption can be in any form.
What money can't buy, sex did the trick and he took the bait.
It is not about having sex , it is the bribe he took.

A good lesson to all PR 's MPs and ADUNs. Stay away from all sort of bribery.
As the ACA are busy setting up sting operations to topple PR state governments.
If only our ACA sets up such sting covert operations on the polis ,DBKL , kastam and immigration , our corruption index will fares better.
