6 July 2010

Dear Residents,

In early March 2010, the PHRA received a call from En Roslan from the Registrar of Society, Selangor. We were told there was a complain lodged with them by a resident of Puchong Hartamas regarding PHRA activities and legality. We subsequently met En Roslan for an interview and it was apparent during the discussion that whoever reported (whether justify or not) had inside and intimate knowledge about the history of the PHRA. During the interview, we were told to submit certain PHRA documents and told to await the ROS reply.

Thereafter, sometimes in early May 2010, the PHRA received the following letter.

This letter was a show cause letter as to why the PHRA should not be deregistered. As you can see from the letter the two reasons why ROS wanted to deregister PHRA are:

  1. Intentionally contravene Fasal 5(1) and 5(2) because members failed to pay the membership fees.
  2. Intentionally contravene Fasal 7(1) because members who had lost/expired their membership had attended and voted in the AGM of 7 March 2009.

The PHRA was told to reply before 22 May 2010 and the following is our show cause/appeal letter and attachment which shows clearly the problem existed prior to the 7 March 2009 AGM.

2007    1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10  11  12
                      (a)   (b)   (c)      (d)

2008    1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10  11  12
       (e)   (f)(g)(h)      (i)            (j)

2009    1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10  11  12
             (k)                      (l)  (m)

2010    1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10  11  12
       (n)   (o)

(a) The PHRA is officially registered.
(b) Membership drive and 185 residents signed up as PHRA members.
(c) 1st AGM held. Charles (Chairman), BH Yap (Secretary). Total member = 185.
(d) Total member by end of 2007 = 185.
(e) One new member signup. Total member = 186.
(f) 2nd AGM held. Charles (Chairman), BH Yap (Secretary). Total member = 186.
(g) One new member signup. Total member = 187.
(h) One new member signup. Total member = 188.
(i) Most members from year 2007 are expired. Total member 188 - 185 = 3.
(j) Total member by end of 2008 = 3.
(k) 3nd AGM held. Six new member signup. Cheah (Chairman), BH Yap (Secretary). Total member = 6 + 3 = 9.
(l) Major referendum. This is where PHRA split into old and new.
(m) 225 new member signup/renew during collections time. Total member by end of 2009 = 231.
(n) 44 new members signup/renew. Total member starting Jan 2010 = 270.
(o) 4th AGM held. Ramesh (Chairman), Apryl (Secretary). Total members = 274

When you look at the diagram, the problem happen in (i), (j), and (k), under Chairman Charles and Secretary BH Yap.

Then problem is actually solved in (m). But when we submit the annual financial report in March 2010 (o), we submit according to what collected as of March 2009 (k), which is 9 members only.

Why the collection in Dec 2009 (m) was not included? Because we tell residents their membership renewal or signup is for 2010. It would be difficult to justify members to renew their 2008-2009 membershipm which already passed. Hence the complete 2008-2009 membership was not collected.

The PHRA received notice of a registered letter which we collected today. The letter which is posted below is clear and self explanatory. The Registrar of Society has decided to deregister the PHRA based on the complaints and the reasons given in their earlier show cause letter above dated 22 Apr 2010.

The PHRA has no choice but to abide by this letter and is currently trying to manage the situation. This is an unfortunate turn of events as it will definitely jeopardize the community welfare and attempts to make Taman Puchong Hartamas a good place to stay. It is unfortunate that certain selfish individuals had resorted to a "scorch earth" means for selfish reasons.

Nevertheless, well meaning residents are advised to remain calm while the PHRA attempts to manage the situation. It may come down to having to register a new association and this would be not difficult with collective support of residents and the very up to date membership and fees records the PHRA Committee today has. We now have about 300 fully registered, paid up members in the membership roll. More information on this situation will be posted in due course.

Thank you.

N. Ramesh
