Updates @ 9:15 pm on 10-9-2014: MCMC has sent out invitation cards to “interested parties” and press to attend and listen to its most able MCMC Chairman of all times, Yg Bhg Dato’ Mohamed Sharil Bin Mohamed Tarmizi, who will be the star of the “Show”. Dato’ Sharil will present his “Industry Performance Report 2013” (IPR). The press and those who attend tomorrow “Show” should pose those questions stated below and HERE pertaining to the appointment of Neumera Sdn Bhd and Orenda Kuantum Digital Sdn Bhd to Dato’ Sharil. It will be interesting to hear whether MCMC has conformed to the principles of transparency and corporate governance in the said appointments. Last but not least, you may also want to ask Dato’ Sharil, what is the ongoing MACC’s investigations into the activities of MCMC all about.
After the first posting on MCMC on 26-8-2014 (“Wheeling & Dealing in MCMC?”), the extremely able Chairman of MCMC, Yg Bhg Dato’ Mohamed Sharil bin Mohamed Tarmizi (Dato’ Sharil), has opted to keep his elegant silence. Of course, Dato’ Sharil is a very powerful man and is heading MCMC, which has a bigger portfolio of fund than the Ministry of Information or for that matter any other Ministries except Ministry of Finance. MCMC has custody of several billion of Ringgit USP Fund.
Dato’ Sharil may be an extremely powerful Chairman of MCMC but he is accountable for what have transpired in MCMC. Unfortunately, he chose to keep his elegant silence on the issues raised in “Wheeling & Dealing in MCMC?”, Part 1 (Orenda quantum Digital) , Part 2 (The dormant Orenda Kuantum Digital) and Part 3 (MoF said “NO” to Direct Award of Contract but …) .
Lets see whether after this posting, Dato’ Sharil would still be obstinate and maintain his arrogance.
In October 2009, MCMC appointed a company known as NUEMERA SDN BHD to provide Public Cellular Blocking Service (“PCBS”) that enables the process of blocking and unblocking of reported lost or stolen cellular mobile access device’s International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) numbers across all public cellular service providers’ network.
Dato’ Sharil as the Chairman of MCMC should provide answers to the followings:
Which particular MCMC officer was responsible for the appointment of Nuemera Sdn Bhd to provide PCBS in 2009?
Who is this Mohd Noor Amin Bin Mohd Noor Khan in Nuemera Sdn Bhd?
Was the appointment of Nuemera Sdn bhd another direct award?
Was there a proper studies made by MCMC before implementing this PCBS?
Was it true that under the PCBS scheme the five telcos have to pay RM2.50 per subscriber?
Are the shareholders and directors directly or indirectly connected with any officer in MCMC?
Was it part of the contract that MCMC will pay Nuemera Sdn Bhd if the five telcos namely, Redtone, Green Packet (P1), Maxis, Celcom and Digi refused to pay for the PCBS scheme?
Was it true that Maxis, Celcom and Digi refused to participate in the PCBS scheme?
As at this date how much has MCMC paid to Neumura Sdn Bhd?
Just imagine, there are at least 35 million mobile phone subscribers and the total cost of this PCBS scheme will cost telcos RM87.5 million yearly. Of course, this sum of RM87.5 million will be factored into our mobile phone bills.
If Dato’ Sharil, as the very able chairman of MCMC, still opt to maintain his elegant silence then appropriate actions will ensue.
Rumours have it that there is an ongoing investigations by MACC into activities of certain officer in MCMC and that the investigations have started since the Puasa month.
Stay tuned: Coming Soon / Akan Datang Part 5.
