GEORGE TOWN: The Penang Municipal Council has identified several "Little Napoleons" and will decide on their fate soon. They include department heads and a few senior officers who made life difficult for the public by being slow in attending to complaints.
They also abused their power and had a bad work attitude, said Penang Municipal councillor Yeoh Soon Hin, who is also the Paya Terubong assemblyman.
"We are gathering evidence before submitting their names to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and State Local Government Committee chairman Chow Kon Yeow for action," Yeoh told reporters at the state DAP headquarters yesterday.
He declined to say how many had been identified and when the names would be handed in for action.
Another councillor Tan Hun Wooi said some of the them had claimed they were given instructions by certain elected representatives from the Pakatan Rakyat government while carrying out enforcement.
"This is morally wrong. We view this as sabotage aimed at inciting the people against elected representatives from Pakatan," he said.
At the press conference, the DAP municipal councillors also initiated the setting up of a complaints bureau where the public can lodge their complaints against them.
