It was most shocking to discover that the Ministry of Finance did not bother to provide the answers to one of my Parliamentary Questions for written answers, HERE, which was supposed to be answered in the October – December 2010 Session. I knew that it was not going to easy for the Khazanah Bhd to provide answers to this question. The main reason being that millions of Ringgit have been paid out to the so-called consultants for projects during the Tun Abdullah period, which was also popularly known as the “4th Floor Administration”. Malaysia was then headed by the de facto PM, you know who lah …. It was also the honey moon period for the government where there was little scrutiny by the opposition.
This is the Parliamentary Question that has not been answered:
“1. Tuan Wee Choo Keong [ Wangsa Maju ] minta Menteri Kewangan menjelaskan jumlah kos konsultasi di bayar oleh Khazanah Nasional Berhad untuk semua projek sejak tahun 2003 memberikan butiran dengan nama firma perunding terhadap projek, jumlah dan tarikh.
Tuan Wee Choo Keong [ Wangsa Maju ] asks the Minister of Finance to state the total amount of consultancy fees paid by Khazanah Nasional Berhad for all projects since 2003 giving breakdown by name of consultants against projects, amounts and dates.”
Is this what “Penyampaian DiUtamakan” is all about?
