Perak Speaker V. Sivakumar has barred Mentri Besar Datuk Dr Zambry Abd Kadir from from attending all State Assembly sittings for 18 months

Dr Zambry's six exco members have been barred for 12 months, Sivakumar said on Wednesday.

Sivakumar said this after an inquiry before him and the Special Privileges Committee on Wednesday to give statements on complaints that their appointments were unconstitutional. [Perak speaker bars Zambry, excos from assembly sittings

Arson is a crime - a felony. It is believed that arson is much more prevalent than statistics indicate because there is a less than perfect system for reporting fires and their causes. Statistics, no matter how incomplete, do indicate that arson is one of the nation’s most expensive crimes against property; and it frequently results in injuries, sometimes in deaths.

But here in Perak, there are political fire and arson at work! Who will be hauled up to court? In the end, who will contain the fire within the racial perimeter before things go beyond control. Or nobody cares? I hate to see the composition of the committee that had passed the decision. Racial lines may be broken if we are too careless or too calculative.
