Read here and here of this religious department chap. It is a timely warning for existing civil servants to toe the line of the new State Government or lose their jobs. In my opinion the royalty should not get involved before investigating the case thoroughly. There may be other civil servants waiting to use influence to get things done.

Jamry Sury has not won anything. He gets back his job, that’s all. For all intends and purposes he is unwelcome as a civil servant of the Perak State in his old capacity. It would not take long for the Mentri Besar, to put him in his place and I am sure Jamry will regret coming back. That’s how the Civil Service operates.

IPOH: Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin had reason to transfer Datuk Jamry Sury, state senior executive councillor Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham said yesterday.

“I trust the menteri besar will present a proper case to the Sultan as to why he (Jamry) had to be transferred to the state secretariat.”
Ngeh said the state government deferred to the Sultan as head of Islam but admitted that in Jamry’s case, the Ruler was not consulted before the decision was made.
He said the state government had encountered several civil servants who were not co-operating with the new administration.
“I call on them to respect the democratic decision of the rakyat who voted us into government. All civil servants who don’t want to co-operate should resign so that the policies of the state government can be effectively implemented.”

He added that the state government would take action against those who were sabotaging the policies of the new state government. This included transferring them or, in extreme cases, terminating their service.
In Penang, DAP chairman Karpal Singh said the Sultan of Perak did not have a say in the transfer of the religious department director.
He said the palace could not order the state government to reinstate Jamry.
“The Perak Pakatan Rakyat government has every right to transfer Jamry since he is a state government servant,” he said when commenting on the order by the Sultan.
“Rulers should seek legal advice from their respective state legal advisers before descending into an arena which is not within their domain,” Karpal said.
Meanwhile, Pangkor assemblyman Datuk Zambry Abdul Kadir welcomed the decree to reinstate Jamry as a fair and wise decision.
“What sort of justice is being championed when a civil servant is denied any opportunity to speak and defend himself?”
Perak Umno Youth chief Zainol Padzi Paharudin said Mohammad Nizar should look into the Barisan Nasional’s record which emphasised good relations with the palace.

    Zainol Padzi should firstly read some history and he will see how Mahathir systamatically rubbished the royalty to see if there any truth in that BN has good relations with the palace.

    What a moron ( key word for today ) I believe that Sultan Azlan Shah will in the end support the Perak Menteri Besar in his decision when presented with the facts .

    Any govt BN supportor should do the right thing and resign . They will be a constant thorn for the good Pakatan Rakyat .

    Kick their butts !!!
