Tuan Wee Choo Keong (Wangsa Maju) minta Menteri Kewangan menyatakan jumlah keseluruhan hutang kepada syarikat swasta dibawah arahan pegawai Kementerian (En Rizal Merican) tanpa kuasa dan/atau tanpa mengikut prosedur antara tahun 2003 hingga 2009:
i. berapakahkah jumlah hutang tersebut yang telah dibayar oleh Kementerian;
ii. apakah tindakan akan diambil mengenai baki jumlah hutang tersebut lebih kurang RM3 juta; dan
iii. apakah tindakan telah diambil terhadap pegawai Kementerian tersebut kerana mengarahkan pembelanjaan tanpa kuasa dan/atau tidak mengikut prosedure yang sedia ada?
Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju] ask the Minister of Finance to state what was the total sum owed to private sector by the Ministry due to the instructions of an officer of the Ministry (En Reezal Merican) without authority and/or not in accordance with the existing procedures between 2003 until 2009;
i. what was the total sum that has been paid by the Ministry for the said debts;
ii. what actions have been taken pertaining to the outstanding balance of the said debt of about RM3 million; and
iii. what actions have been taken against the said officer for authorizing spending without authority and/or not in accordance to the existing stipulated procedures
This question has been rejected by Parliament. I can understand the sensitivities. I shall pursue this matter during the debate on the Bills. The Ministry must explain expenses incurred without following proper procedures. The Ministry must also provide full details of the expenses whether the expenses were incurred for the activities of the government.
