Con man – Bahraini style take 2

تأجير المناهل

بعض الإخوة الأعزاء نوابنا الأفاضل .. نراهم يتعاملون مع ديننا الإسلامي بنفس طريقة تعاملهم مع الشؤون السياسية معتقدين بأنه من الممكن لهم تشكيل الدين وما يحلله وما يحرمه حسب ما تمليه عليهم ظروف ( البزنس ) الموجودة في السوق .. يتلاعبون بالحلال والحرام ويكيفونه على المزاج وهم يعلمون بأنهم إن خدعوا الإنسان فلا يمكنهم خداع الرحمن ..

نائب للشعب ومسلم ومصلي للخمسة فروض ومؤدي لجميع المناسك الدينية من صلاة وصيام وزكاة وصدقة ، وهو دائماً ما يعطي صوته ضد المحرمات الدنيوية من شرب للمسكرات ورقص في الملاهي الليلية والنهارية الجهارية مــا يعني أنه ملتزم .. هذا الأخ النائب لديه بناية تجارية حلو ؟ وهذه البناية تقع على شارع حيوي ليلي .. حلو ؟ واستخرج لهذه البناية رخصة لإقامة فندق بثلاث نجوم .. حلو ؟ ومع الفندق رخصة بارات ( آسف يسمونها مناهل ) ورخصة للشكشكة الليلية فكيف يكون هذا حلو ؟ ..

الأخ النائب المسلم استخرج ترخيص ( فقط ) لبيع الخمر والرقص واستلام النقوط في فندقه ، ثم قام بتأجيره إلى مستثمر خليجي ولم يقم هو بالبيع أو بالإدارة والإشراف واستلام الحرام من المال .. بما يعني أن الأمــــوال التي يستلمها مــــن المستــأجر ( المستثمر لفندقه ) حلال زلال ، وإذا كانت هنــاك ( شبهة ) في مال الخمر والرقص فهو منها بريء وسوف يكون مثواه الجنة إن شاء الله .. أما الذي سوف يذهــب إلى النار ويكتوي بالمال فهو المستأجر ..

آنه إللي باط كبدي إنه يتاجر بشغلة ويتبرأ منها ويصوت ضدها في مجلس النواب .. يعني ألحين إللي يصوت في المجلس ضد الحانات والبارات وضد المراقص العربية والكباريهات في البحرين ويطالب بإغلاقها أليس المفروض منه والأحسن له الابتعاد عـــن المتــاجرة فيهـا نهائياً ؟ وإلا شرايكم يا جماعة ؟ ..

طبعاً إحنه لا نتكلم عن المستثمر الخليجي إللي تورط في إستئجار الفندق لاحقاً مع أنه تمصمص من المدخولات العالية سابقاً .. ولكننا بس ننصح الناس إللي عندها بيوت من زجاج بأن لا ترمي بيوت الآخرين بالحجارة والحصى .. الآخرين لو تكسرت بيوتهم فلا من شاف ولا من درى ، لكن النواب عليهم العيون مفتوحة .. فاحذروا ..

Salman bin Sager :: Al-Waqt :: 2 April, ‘2007

Salman bin Sager is calling our attention to a sitting MP who owns a hotel but in order to stand for parliament and appear more acceptable to his voters he got rid of the hotel (temporarily) by leasing it to a Saudi investor. It’s a crappy 2-star hotel but has a bar and a disco and is on a main thoroughfare; hence, is assured of a good income.

What the investor did not bank on; however, is the right honourable MP diligently working within parliament to support the motion to close all bars and discos in hotels of sub-five-star standard. That naturally included the property he leased too! That of course resulted in loss of income and obviously he felt cheated by the good MP and wanted redress. Off to court he went to salvage what is left of his investment.

That investment is – according to another report – is a lease of BD27,000 a month (US$71,400) and he wants to retrieve the post-dated cheques he paid the MP with, 14 of them according to the report which equate to BD378,000 (or about a cool million US). I somehow think that the MP will sit this one out. He’s enjoying parliamentary immunity too much, you see, he can’t be touched, even though that he negated the spirit of the agreement and acted in bad faith, he can’t be touched.

The investor lodged the case against the MP in a Saudi court (which in itself is a brain fart! imagine him explaining to the Shari’a judge that he lost his income because an MP in Bahrain lobbied against bars and discos! I can tell you what that judge will do, probably throw the investor in jail!)

Just so you know, during the run-up to the parliamentary elections I noticed that one candidate was very active in some vigilante activities in apprehending hookers in Hoora and Gudaybia to “clean up the area” he said. The fact that he happens to own a hotel, which, according to the Commercial Registrations records is called the Relax Inn, did not deter him at all. Some have suggested that what he was really doing is getting rid of competition!

I wonder if this is the MP that is implicated in all this?

Anyway, if the MP has any decency, he would not only return those uncashed cheques to the investor, but also compensate him for the breach of trust willingly. He should also change that vice den of his to apartments and rent them to his destitute constituents at a reasonable cost, especially considering the length of time “his people” have been waiting for council housing.

I somehow don’t think that any of these suggestions will happen any time soon.

We deserve the parliament we voted for.

    I wonder which one of them is it, I mean, its not like I really care about selling alcohol and the likes, I don’t mind alcohol, not that I mind Religious People, but double faced acts are what bothers me the most.

    the problem is, our people are so narrow minded and don’t really think of the future and the will being of this very very small “country” that would be the closest thing to a heaven on earth with the right drive and investment, instead, they are driven toward the silliest things (thanks to our amazing MP’s) and redirected to what the “MP’s” want them to see as achievements.

    man, i think i need to stop here.

    why keep anything a secret, the time where everything was a secret didn’t do us any good.

    I would actually love to have one of those scandal news papers in Bahrain, at least we will have these guys exposed to an extent.

    😆 most of the hotels that I visited in Bahrain were brothels ( Tylos etc ) so a lot of money to be made there !
