Assyrian Taxi Driver Stabbed in Wellington, NZ
« on: March 29, 2011, 10:18:21 PM »
A Wellington taxi driver stabbed seven times says new laws requiring cameras in cabs won’t work.



The new law comes into force in four months, but Assyrian driver Schlemon Yako says he wants shields – not cameras.

Mr Yako picked up a job from Kilbirnie last Saturday. Near the destination in Wilton, the passenger turned on him, stabbing him seven times.

Driven by the thought of seeing his wife and four children again, he fought off his attacker, clutching at the knife with his hands.

Mr Yako’s wife is overjoyed he lived, but it wasn’t the same ending for Hiren Mohini’s family – the Auckland driver who was stabbed to death last year.

His death sparked a law change, and by August 1 this year, every taxi will be required to have a security camera.

Mr Yako’s boss, KiwiCabs director Muneer Oraha, says only three out of his 89 cabs have the cameras. They’re too costly, he says, and won’t work.

Mr Yako agrees.

He says he’s planning to quit the night shift, but says if or when he gets a shield that’ll change.

Oh and I just noticed his boss "Muneer Oraha" is Assyrian too. He owns the company with 89 cabs, that must be the richest Assyrian in NZ (and possibly one of the richest Assyrians in the world?)

I am sure there are bro, but this would probably be one one of the rich ones too (alaha mazyedla)

To have a fleet of close to 100 cabs (own or not) is pretty big!

Bro believe me, he's not one of the richer assyrians, taxi is not very profitable, we have a lot of assyrians/suryoye in Europe who have big companies and don't forget carlos slim lol, he's half assyrian, half lebanese  :) unfortunately he always say that he's lebanese (from mexico of course) and not assyrian  :s
I am Aramean

I am Assyrian

I am Chaldean

I am Mesopotamian

I AM BETH NAHRIN !!!!
