Giving voice to the little people...since 1970

Act immediately on Reggae chain of hostels

The Consumers Association of Penang today calls on the Commissioner of Tourism to immediately check whether license has been issued to the controversial Reggae chain of hostels in Penang and Kuala Lumpur and if registered, to charge the registered owner or proprietor for contravening the Tourism Industry Act 1992 and if not then to revoke their registration immediately. The Local Councils should also act against these hostels.
 
This call is made in view of the hostel’s announcement that the hostel does not accept bookings by Malaysian, Indian and Middle Eastern nationals.  This is a new form of “Apartheid” and total discrimination against a selected group of people.

We need a value-based, not a market-based schooling system
