Questions Time: 05 April 2011 BNM: kerosakan wang kertas – kurang jelas dan luntur

Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju] minta Menteri Kewangan menyatakan kerugian terperinci yang mana Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) terpaksa menanggung kerugian besar akibat kesalahan dalam pencetakan wang kertas Malaysia, yang menimbulkan masalah kekurangan wang kertas baru untuk Perayaan Tahun Baru Cina, serta memberi nama agensi atau syarikat yang dilantik untuk menguruskan kerja pencetakan wang oleh Thomas de la Rue di UK dan mengapakah BNM tidak menuntut pampasan dari syarikat yang dilantik.

Jawapan:

Tuan Yang di-Pertua,

Untuk makluman Yang Berhormat, kejadian dalam percetakan wang kertas adalah berpunca daripada percetakan yang kelihatan kurang jelas atau luntur sekiranya dibasuh menggunakan bahan cucian/peluntur yang berat. Namun, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) ingin memamklumkan bahawa ia tidak mengalami sebarang kerugian atau beban kewangan ekoran daripada masalah percetakan wang kertas tersebut. Ini kerana di bawah perjanjian pesanan yang ditanda tangani di antara BNM dan syarikat pencetak wang kertas berkenaan, syarikat tersebut bertanggungjawab ke atas segala kos, bayaran atau apa-apa tanggungan lain sekiranya berlaku sebarang masalah yang berpunca daripada kegagalan pihak syarikat tersebut dalam melaksanakan kontrak percetakan yang diberikan.

 

2. Berkaitan dengan kontrak pembekalan dan percetakan wang kertas, BNM hanya berurusan secara terus dengan syarikat-syarikat pencetak mata wang yang mempunyai reputasi yang tinggi serta memenuhi syarat-syarat ketat yang telah diluluskan oleh ahli lembaga pengarah BNM.  Antara syarat-syarat tersebut termasuklah mempunyai status kewangan yang kukuh, kepakarn, pengalaman, kualiti perkhidmatan, kapasiti dan keupayaan teknologi mencetak. Segala urusan seperti sebut harga, pembayaran dan urusan penghantaran adalah dibincangkan secara terus dengan syarikat-syarikat tersebut tanpa melalui broker atau agen.

 

3. BNM juga sentiasa memantau kedudukan bekalan wang kertas di dalam pasaran bagi memastikan bekalan wang kertas adalah memcukupi untuk keperluan orang ramai.  BNM juga turut mengambil maklum tentang permintaan yang tinggi ke atas wang kertas baru bagi kegunaan semasa musim-musim perayaan dan memastikan permintaatn tinggi ini dipenuhi dengan membekalkan stok wang kertas yang mencukupi.

Note:

It was strange that this case was never announced by BNM or reported in the press!

I have specifically asked for the name of company that was appointed by Bank Negara Malaysia to manage the printing of the paper currency. But the name of the company was purposely omitted except using the words “syarikat tersebut” with no reference to it in the any part of its reply.

Why BNM was so secretive about the name of the appointed company?  Is the appointed company indirectly or directly related to any of the BNM officers?

    now a rakyat Msia just went to Pantai for medical follow up, usually the medician will cost him around RM800, now he have to pay RM1586!

    …. some opposition MP like to politicking ” does Khazanah know how to invest ” , then how to blame
    Khazanah invest in Healthcare which making profit ???? ……
    Consider one doctor serve 100 rakyat …. looks like the keutamaan is given to doctor rather than rakyat regardless either they are rich or poor ….. because the target is making a high-income doctor to level which more high income ….

    In this case , looks like the one fear is NOT the poor one , but is the medium income one . Why ? When someone move the steps from public hospital to private hospital , already ignore the poor one …. so what so big matter for them when move
    another steps from private hospital to medical tourism ….. ?
    In their eye , there is already NO hospital

    More than 160 students were barred from entering their classrooms at an international school in Jalan Ampang on Monday because their parents had apparently failed to pay the school fees on time.

    http://www.thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2011/1/5/nation/7734840&sec=nation

    The students – over 100 primary school pupils and 60 secondary school students – were “detained” at the library and the arts room , respectively, from 8am till lunchtime on the first day of school.

    We were only told that we would get a 20% discount if we pay before Nov 30,” she said. After paying the school fees of her children, aged 12 and 14, the parent was shocked when she was asked to pay an additional 20% as penalty for late payment.

    School fees for a student in the international school cost up to RM3,500 per semester.

    Parents expressed unhappiness over their children’s detention.

    Our opinion : Why the parents compaint ? Ins’t the rich one told the poor one , no money no education
    Oh yah now the more rich one tell the less rich one , no enough money , also no education

    Note: I had to delete a few letters to avoid unnecessary legal implications. My apology.
