On 12 October 2009 Yg Bhg Dato’ Mohamed Sharil Bin Mohamed Tarmizi (Dato’ Sharil), the then very learned and powerful Acting Chairman of MCMC had singlehandedly appointed Nuemera Sdn Bhd, and the letter of appointment was addressed to one Datuk Mohd Amin.
Although yours truly has been asking Dato’ Sharil to clarify whether the Datuk Mohd Noor Amin Bin Mohd Noor Khan is the same person as in picture posted in HERE but Dato’ Sharil chose to indulge in his elegant silence and/or on his ego trip.
As has been said before, for Dato’ Sharil to indulge in elegant silence and/or on ego trip at this stage will not in any way blow away the serious matters raised in this blog. Further indulgence in his elegant silence and/or his ego trip will no doubt bring the Ministry of Information and the government into disrepute.
To appoint Nuemera Sdn Bhd, which is a dormant company, with such a huge contract sum without calling for an open tender and commissioning an audit of Nuemera Sdn Bhd and especially when Dato’ Sharil was the Acting Chairman of MCMC is unacceptable by any management standard one would like to set.
Now let us examine, who is this equally learned and powerful Yg Bhg Datuk Mohd Noor Amin or Datuk Mohd Amin. Datuk Mohd Noor Amin is the Chairman of International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber Threats (IMPACT), HERE. It is by coincidence that Dato’ Sharil also sits on the Board of Trustee of IMPACT. Rumours has it that both Datuk Mohd Noor Amin and Dato’ Sharil are good friends.
IMPACT looks and sounds very impressive. The word “INTERNATIONAL” gives it a status in world stage. By the way, Impact was set up in 2008 by Tun Abdullah bin Ahmad Badawi. IMPACT is believed to be a government agency. It will be interesting to know how much is the government providing the yearly grant to IMPACT.
Have you heard about IMPACT? Well, it has announced in its website that it has a total membership of 151 countries. Please examine those 151 countries (this link is its just updated version one or two days ago – no worry the older version has been saved) closely then you will know how SIGNIFICANT is IMPACT in world stage. The subject of IMPACT deserved several postings by themselves. We will discus it in more details at a later date.
Yours truly calls upon Dato’ Sharil, the very learned and powerful Chairman of MCMC, to break his elegant silence and publicly provide answers to the following questions::
Whether it was proper for Dato’ Sharil, the then acting chairman of MCMC, to have singlehandedly award the phone blocking service / IMEI to a dormant company, Nuemera Sdn Bhd?
How did Dato’ Sharil and/or MCMC evaluate the capabilities of a dormant company without commissioning a cost validation audit on the so-called service to be provided by Nuemera Sdn Bhd?
Was it proper for Dato’ Sharil to appoint a dormant company Nuemera Sdn Bhd when he knew or ought to have known that its director and shareholder one Datuk Mohd Amin is also the chairman of IMPACT, another government agency?
Was it proper for Dato’ Sharil and/or MCMC to award the phone blocking service/IMEI to Nuemera Sdn Bhd wherein Datuk Mohd Amin, the chairman of IMPACT, has a direct interest, and Dato’ Sharil is a member of IMPACT’s Board of Trustees?
Why must MCMC pays million of Ringgit to Nuemera Sdn Bhd when until now telcos have refused to pay for the service of Nuemera Sdn Bhd?
We sincerely hope that Datuk Sharil or MCMC will provide answers to the above questions posted.
