MALACCA: Police arrested 13 youths, between the ages of 13 and 21, for having “consensual” sex with a Form Two student over the past one year, The Star reported.

Jealousy? DAP complains that Malacca’s Chief Minister has 3 luxury cars.
Malacca CM’s extra luxury ‘official’ cars worth RM990,000 blasted
DAP’s Ayer Keroh state assemblyperson Khoo Poay Tiong has questioned the need for Malacca chief minister Idris Haron to have up to three official vehicles for his use, two of which are considered luxury cars.
Khoo said while the head of a state government is entitled to a decent official vehicle – which Haron already has in the form of a Honda Accord – three are too many.
Khoo said the two other vehicles are a Mercedes Benz S400 bearing car plate number MCM1 and a Lexus R350 bearing car plate number MCS 11.
This was confirmed in a written reply from the chief minister to Khoo, who had queried about the vehicles during the Malacca state assembly sitting from Nov 16 to Nov 19.
The written reply said while the Honda Accord plate M1, the chief minister’s official vehicle, is rented, the other two were acquired through state-owned companies.
It said the Mercedes was acquired through Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Melaka (PKNM) for RM592,450.00 in July 2015 while the Lexus was acquired through Syarikat Air Melaka Berhad (SAMB) for RM402,507.36 in October 2013.
Idris is both the chairperson of PKNM and SAMB by virtue of his position as Malacca chief minister.

Building an airport with no market for it
We have failed to realise that the problems associated with government projects is one of ‘moral hazard’.
By Chua Tong Ka The new Transport Minister, Liow Tiong Lai, is now tasked with solving the lack of commercial flights at the Melaka International Airport (MIA). Am I the only one who finds this task strange? We created a problem where there was none in the first place. Now, we have to find the time and most likely invest more money to solve a problem we created ourselves. This boils down to the concept of ‘moral hazard’ of which the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, have written many papers on. ‘Moral hazard’ occurs when a party takes excessive and reckless risk because they do not have to face the consequences of the potential cost or burden associated with the risk undertaken. In other words, it is about doing business using another’s money and without having to account for the business’ feasibility and profitability. … The RM240 million MIA was built at a time when the government could ill afford it. This still would have been acceptable if the airport was able to generate income and finance its own upkeep. Sadly, this is not the case. Therein lies the crux of the matter. If the money for the airport had come from one’s own pocket, a proper feasibility study as well as costings and revenue projections would definitely have been conducted prior to undertaking the project. As it stands, the government built the airport first without studying if there was a market for it. This could only have happened if the airport was built with ‘free’ money. http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/highlight/2014/07/05/building-an-airport-with-no-market-for-it — Free Malaysia Today

Melaka Airport is a small facility located about five miles outside of town. Its short runway can only accommodate smaller aircraft, so there are no mainstream domestic flights to and from Melaka.

Airborne passengers normally reroute through one of Malaysia’s primary airports before continuing on to Melaka.

[TRANSIT: It has been said that there is no such thing as bad publicity … but that’s not quite true.] Mohd Ali said the service had malfunctioned 27 times since its launch in October last year.
