BERNAMA Spins The Account The Other Way Round

The Kuala Lumpur City Hall was involved in a mess at Sentul Tuesday night following a raid by the enforcement department over a restaurant there and in Prima Setapak (where I used to go a night for dinner). But I was shocked to find that the account from the newly launched Malay Mail was in contrast to the one that Bernama wrote:

Bernama's account is:
Thugs harassed a team of Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) enforcement officers and prevented them from sealing an errant 24-hour restaurant in Sentul Raya on Monday night.

The restaurant management had contravened regulations by placing tables and chairs on five-footways.

The DBKL officers were about to take action against the restaurant operator when about 10 men became aggressive and confronted the team.

The men prevented the enforcement officers from seizing the tables and chairs from the five-footways and hurled abuses.

However, the Malay Mail account is as follows:
Restaurant operators in Sentul alleged that City Hall officers were unnecessarily high-handed when conducting raids last night. Following the raid, six police reports were lodged by both the operators and customers.

The operators, as well as some customers, claimed that a group of 100 City Hall officers smashed several glass panes at the stalls, pulled out the electrical wires, damaged water pipes and even poured food all over the floor during the 11pm raid.

In the chaos, one customer had curry splashed on his clothes.

The officers’ alleged highhandedness had allegedly caused a near riot, claimed Batu MP Tian Chua, who was at the scene last night.
** Bernama people are just UMNO / BN lapdogs. The account is trying to cover up the image of DBKL where people are now angry over failure to jaga the people against the out-of-control developers. You try to spin the account as to mislead the people, ah!?

You be the judge, readers. Are you going to trust Bernama or the actual account?
