Updates @ 1:15 pm on 13-6-2012: The MAS AGM has been fixed for 21-6-2012 at 10 am, MAS Academy, Kelana Jaya.
At long last En Mohamad Rashdan Yusof aka Danny (Rashdan) will finally leave MAS on 30-6-2012. It was long over due but it is better late than never.
Rashdan, Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar (Amok)’s most trusted crony, should have resigned on 24-3-2012 when the allegations of abused of power on the flight MH122 where his maid and baby were upgraded to the First Class Cabin was first surfaced, in HERE and HERE.
Amok’s most trusted crony chose to stay on, En Ahmad Jauhari Yahya (AJ), the Group CEO of MAS, and the Board of Directors of MAS chose to condone the alleged gross misconduct until they must have been told in no uncertain terms to do the necessary about Rashdan’s untenable position.
Rahdan, Amok’s most trusted crony, should have resigned the moment when the most secretive MAS-AirAsia share swap was reversed by YAB PM Datuk Seri Najib on 2-5-2012 and that would have save him a bit of embarrassment. Amok’s most trusted crony was one of the main architects of the said secret share swap.
It was reported in The Edge in January 2012 that Amok’s most trusted crony, Rahsdan,“the Deputy Group CEO who helped Khaznah Nasional Bhd to broker the share swap with Tune Air the largest shareholder of AirAsia”, in HERE. Therefore, the moment the said secret share swap was reversed on 2-5-2012, Amok’s crony and those little Napoleons in Khazanah should also resigned en-block to take full responsibility for what they have done with the said secret share swap, which have badly damaged MAS. But Rashdan chose to hand on to his post which he may thought that he never had it so good.
For a start, YAB PM Datuk Seri Najib was ill advised and Amok’s crony and those little Napoleons in Khazanah subsequently misled the PM and the nation with the concerted helps from certain newspapers editors that the said secret share swap was to “SAVE” MAS.
Luckily the overwhelming majority of MAS staffs and yours truly didn’t give up but relentless show our joint determinations to expose the ulterior motives of the said secret share swap with the predominant objective of stopping the so-called “Comprehensive Collaborative Framework” (CCF) and ridiculous decisions that have been made by the clueless and thoughtless cronies of certain players. Credit must go to YAB PM for being receptive and not blinded by Amok’s most trusted crony and those little Napoleons in Khazanah. Syabas! YAB PM, you have shown to the nation that when it matters you have put your foot down firmly and upholds the slogan, “Rakyat didahulukan” and “Pencapaian diutamakan”.
Yours truly believes that overwhelming majority of MAS staffs must be celebrating after hearing the news that Amok’s most trusted crony will definitely leave MAS for good on 30-6-2012.
But MAS staffs should not be celebrating yet because there are several more “infiltrators” that came in under the said secret share swap that had to be weeded out before MAS can really fly with one direction i.e. “MAS exists for our nation, 1Malaysia”.
In the light of imminent departure of Amok’s most trusted crony, Rashdan, the ex-AirAsia officers, En Rozman Omar, the CFO of MAS, En Azhari Dahlan, the Head of Engineering, and a few others should take the honourable steps to leave MAS like Mr Shane Nollan of PlaneConsult did in order to avoid the unnecessary embarrassment.
Of course, those Panamera Deadwood, the like of Mr Martin Barrow, who has little or no aviation experience, should also give the matter a deep thought before they will also suffer the same fate as Amok’s most trusted crony, Rashdan. As an immediate step, AJ should investigate into the purpose of the number of free First Class travels by Mr Martin Barrow and if they were found to be not for the official business of MAS then he should be asked to pay back the costs.
Yours truly has the pleasure of receiving the re-issue e-mail from AJ to all MAS staffs, which was sent at 20:30 hrs on 12-6-2012. Yours truly will publish it tomorrow for a discussion.
MAS staffs should be interested to know that at long last MAS management and the little Napoleons in Khazanah have just realized that there are many minority shareholders in MAS and the provisions in the Companies Act that the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of MAS had to be called, important decisions had to be discussed and the Directors of MAS had to be properly elected in the AGM and not appointed by the Little Napoleons in Khazanah as what had been after the said secret share swap. NO EGM was called by MAS to discussed the said secret share swap. Of course, Khazanah holds about 70% of MAS shares, the Little Napoleons will still be able to call the shot and get the same clueless directors re-elected again and again.
The minority shareholders of MAS should do their best to attend the AGM and ask for the votes for the election of the directors by show of hands of those presence instead of by poll, where the Little Napoleons wishes will be a mere formality during the AGM. The Little Napoleons in Khazanah must be exposed in the AGM if they chose to force their hands.
Those interested parties and stakeholders of MAS should attend the AGM by way of proxy if they are not shareholders.
MAS AGM will be held next week. Yours truly will post an updates on the exact date of the coming AGM.
