Your MP's Question of the Week #44

Another “Midnight Express” project involving RM110 millions by Abdullah Badawi’s administration!

During the Ijok by-election in 2006, YB Datuk Seri Najib, the Deputy Prime Minister, launched a housing project of 1,117 units of Double-Storey Terrace Low Cost Houses and 2,500 units of Low Cost Flats, reviving an abandoned one. At the ground breaking ceremony, the DPM also promised the people of Ijok that the said project will be awarded through Open Tender in order to ensure that prices of the houses will be kept as low as possible.

But on 24 April 2007, the Ministry of Finance under Abdullah Badawi quietly issued a Letter of Intent contrary to the said announcement by the DPM. The extract of the said Letter of Intent is as follows:

“Dimaklumkan bahawa Kementerian Kewangan bersetuju supaya projek Cadangan Membangunkan Rumah Mampu Milik Sebanyak 1,117 Unit (Double-Storey Terrace Houses dan … Terbengkal Di lot PT3861 Alam Perdana, Bandar Bandar Baru Puncak Alam, Mukim Ijok, Kuala Selangor dilaksanakan secara runding terus (reka dan bina) dengan syarikat RC-Soils (M) Sdn Bhd …”

Although the Letter of Intent was issued in April 2007 by the Ministry of Finance under Abdullah Badawi, this housing project was kept in abeyance maybe due to the devastating results of the March 8 General Elections.

My source told me that out of a sudden and at the tail end of Pak Lah’s administration, this project was suddenly unearthed and the direct negotiations between Syarikat Perumahan Negara Bhd and RC-Soils (M) Sdn Bhd had started at great speed. I was also told that a Letter of Award will be issued within the next two weeks for this project with a total value of RM110 millions.

On 14 September 2007, RC-Soils (M) Sdn Bhd had changed its name to Medallion Builders Sdn Bhd (Medallion) with a total paid up capital of RM800,000. The directors and shareholders of Medallion are En Abdul Jalil bin Abdul Kadir of 0411 Kampung Berhala Tambun, Jerteh, Terengganu, En Azahari bin Adnan of 29 Kg Oaya Jejawi, Temerloh, Pahang and En Muhamad bin Noh of 16, Jalan Setiamurni 2, Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.

I was also told that a Chinese Datuk is actively “helping” Medallion to lobby for this project.

Is this another project for crony, who is close to the “BUDAK-BUDAK TINGKAT EMPAT”? This is another “Midnight Express” Project under Abdullah Badawi’s Administration. This is another clear example of BN’s “Cakap tak serupa bikin!

Should the Government, at all times, abide by its pledges made through its Ministers?

Soalan Mingguan WR Anda ke-44

Satu lagi rancangan pembangunan diluluskan secara tergesa-gesa pada saat akhir bernilai RM110 juta oleh pentadbiran Abdullah Badawi!

Sewakti pilihanraya kecil Ijok dalam tahun 2006, Naib Perdana Menteri YB Datuk Seri Najib telah melancarkan suatu rancangan perumahan sebanyak 1,117 buah rumah kos rendah bertingkat dua dan 2,500 buah rumah pangsa kos murah di mana suatu tapak terbiar telah dikerjakan semula. Dalam upacara perasmian, Naib Perdana Menteri juga berjanji kepada penduduk Ijok bahawa rancangan ini akan ditawarkan secara tender terbuka demi memastikan harga rumah akan menjadi semurah mungkin.

Akan tetapi, pada 24 April 2007, Kementerian Kewangan bawah Abdullah Badawi telah secara sunyi mengeluarkan suatu surat hasrat yang bercanggah dengan kenyataan umum Naib Perdana Menteri. Petikan surat tersebut adalah seperti di bawah:

“Dimaklumkan bahawa Kementerian Kewangan bersetuju supaya projek Cadangan Membangunkan Rumah Mampu Milik Sebanyak 1,117 Unit (Double-Storey Terrace Houses dan … Terbengkal Di lot PT3861 Alam Perdana, Bandar Bandar Baru Puncak Alam, Mukim Ijok, Kuala Selangor dilaksanakan secara runding terus (reka dan bina) dengan syarikat RC-Soils (M) Sdn Bhd …

Walau pun surat ini telah dekeluarkan pada April 2007 oleh Kementerian Kewangan bawah Abdullah Badawi, rancangan perumahan ini telah diketepikan mungkin kerana keputusan gentar pilihanraya umum March 8th.

Sumber saya memaklum saya bahawa secara tiba-tiba dan pada penghujung pentadbiran Pak Lah, rancangan ini dikorekkeluar dan rundingan terus telah pantas dijalankan antara Syarikat Perumahan Negara Bhd dan RC-Soils (M) Sdn Bhd. Saya juga dimaklumkan bahawa Surat Pemberian akan dikeluarkan dalam tempih dua minggu lagi untuk rancangan ini yang bernilai RM110 juta.

Pada 14 September 2007, RC-Soils (M) Sdn Bhd telah bertukar nama kepada Medallion Builders Sdn Bhd (Medallion) dengan jumlah modal saham berbayar sebanyak RM800,000. Pengarah dan pemegang saham Medallion adalah En Abdul Jalil bin Abdul Kadir yang beralamat di 0411 Kampung Berhala Tambun, Jerteh, Terengganu, En Azahari bin Adnan yang beralamat di 29 Kg Oaya Jejawi, Temerloh, Pahang dan En Muhamad bin Noh yang beralamat di 16, Jalan Setiamurni 2, Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.

Saya juga diberitahu bahawa seorang Datuk kaum Cina giat “membantu” Medallion untuk memperolehi rancangan ini.

Adakah ini suatu lagi projek untuk kroni, siapakah yang berhubungan intim dengan “BUDAK-BUDAK TINGKAT EMPAT”? Ini satu lagi “rancangan kelulusan cepat dan pada waktu akhir” (“Midnight Express” Project) bawah pentadbiran Abdullah Badawi. Ini satu lagi contoh bahawa BN berperangai “Cakap tak serupa bikin!

Patutkah pihak pentadbiran senantiasa berpegang kepada janji para menterinya?

    I am not surprised that this is another project by Budak-Budak Tingkat Empat of Pak Lah. This is the promised REFORM of Pak Lah.

    Is that Chinese Datuk helping? I know that the Chinese Datuk is the real person behind this project. Can someone help with the name please?

    Pak Lah please stop with your “Midnight Express” projects for your cronies. We thought that Tony Fernandes / Air Asia is the only crony. By the look of things, there are more cronies. Now we hear about a Chinese Datuk.

    YB Wee please publish the name of this Datuk.

    This is another reform by Pak Lah’s government. What a great reformist PM! I am sure that we will get more midnight express projects between now and March.

    Wow! I thought that Tingkat Empat boys have been disbanded. There are very much around – scary!

    What reform? Reform to help family members to be in power politically and influential in business. Reforms what? Reform to give more projects to cronies like RC Soils, Air Asia and etc.

    When March comes and Pak Lah has retired, that will be a real REFORM by itself. UndurLAH dengan secepat mungkin! Rakyat tidak mahu nampak kroni-kroni PM sebagai Tony Fernandes, Datuk….

    Under Pak Lah’s government everything center around “Tingkat Empat Boys” and Son-in-Law. And it is for this reason that this country is in deep shit! Actually this country is run by the “Tingkat Empat Boys” headed by SIL.

    Even though the DPM promised the award of the project by Open Tender the Tingkat Empat can ignore and go by direct negotiation. Correct! Correct! Correct! Another project by “Midnight Express”!

    Such project must be stopped at all cost.

    whatthehey! i’m not so thickheaded afterall! but nowadays reporting it to the police is as useless as the dust in my vacuum cleaner. so, i just wanna y’know…make use of the YB in my area. help him by pointing out all sorts of problem that doesn’t involve any airports and whatnots.

    but i guess you are right. this blog is not a police station….it’s only for any problem at country level not residential area level.

    we the rakyat biasa will fend for ourselves while our leaders are busy performing a circus.

    thanks for the direction ronson! all the best!

    Mana reform yang telah dijanjikan dahulu. Saya maseh ingat lagi dalam majlis perasmian pelancaran membena 1,117 buah rumah teres 2tingkat kos rendah dan 2,500 buah rumah pangsa Najib telah berjanji bahawa projek tersebut akan melalui tender terbuka. Ini untuk menjamin kos rumah tersebut sentiasa rendah. Saya ingat projek tersebut tak jadi setelah BN telah kalah di negeri Selangor. Amat mendukacitakan bila projek tersebut dipilih melalui Surat Hasrat dan bukan melalui Tender Terbuka. Lebeh kecewa lagi melibatkan Budak Tingkat Empat Putrajaya dan Datuk kaum cina membantu syarikat tersebut. Ini adalah salah satu projek ” Midnight Express” diakhir pemerintahan Abdullah Badawi dan reform yang dijanjikan akan tinggal janji……….

    The name of that Chinese Datuk, the wheeler and dealer, is Datuk Casey L. If this project is awarded to Medallion by way of direct negotiation with the help of this Datuk Casey then I will have no alternative but to bring it to the attention of Parliament.

    I hope that Minister of Finance “jangan cakap tak serupa bikin” and don’t waste public fund just for the sake of the 4th floor boys.
