A Not So-Public Public Hearing

The second public hearing of the Parliamentary Caucus on Human Rights and Good Governance last night sprang a surprise when members of the media were barred from covering it.

Some 200 people attended and participated actively, with more than 50 queries posed to the 12 panellists, among them caucus chairman and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Az-iz, opposition leader Lim Kit Siang, Permatang Pauh MP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and Petaling Jaya Utara member Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun.

Dear YBs, we are sick of all talk and no action. You have had two hearings. Now it is time to walk the talk. What is the remedy to bring down crime rates?

How to ensure that the public and visitors to this country feel safe?

aiyoyo! chew mei fun was there!
you know what her solution is to feeling safe and secure?

to quote her,
“I was a victim of snatch theft a few years ago while my house was burglarised last year. I was scared, so I moved to Aman Suria. It’s a safe place to come to,” she told reporters after attending a Mooncake Festival at Aman Suria last Saturday.
Chew is all for gated communities - that's the headline, and you can find the story in

I like Chew Mei Fun..She is quite a "fun" lady. And she is one of just a handful of MCA politicians that i think are really doing their job for the community. Kudos to her! Want to see more of such people in MCA actually...
