The nation welcomes the appointment of Yg Bhg Datuk Seri Ismail Bakar as the new Chief Secretary to the Government / Ketua Setiausaha Negara (KSN). His last position was the Secretary General Ministry of Finance (MOF). He has a chequered career in the civil service. In January 1986 he joined the Administrative and Diplomatic Service. He had served as the secretary-general of the Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Ministry and the Transport Ministry; budget director at the National Budget Office of the Finance Ministry and senior advisor at the World Bank headquarters in Washington DC, United States. For more details please read HERE.
The newly appointed KSN, Datuk Seri Ismail Bakar, should launch an immediate investigation into the flagrant violations of the General Orders by high ranking officers in the civil service. Prior to 14th General Elections (GE), they were the law to themselves. They were the diehard supporters of BN. The clean up in the top management of the ministries is very necessary to ensure the smooth implementations of all the policies of PH. It has to be done by the new KSN.
Government General Orders – Badan-Badan Berkanun (Tattertib & Surcaj)
Section 20 (1) provides: “Seseorang pegawai dalam Kumpulan Pengurusan Tertinggi atau Kumpulan Pengurusan dan Professional tidak boleh mengambil bahagian aktif dalam activiti politik atau memakai apa-apa lambang sesuatu parti politik, dan …”
PH Government had announced that actions will be taken against those civil servants who have actively campaigned for the BN during the 14th GE. So far Tan Sri Irwan Serigar (Irwan), the former Secretary General of MOF, was actively campaigning for BN. He was relief of his post and transferred to the pool in JPA. Irwan was not the only guilty one. There were many more high ranking officers who were as guilty as Irwan. They have been spared by the outgoing KSN as they were all in the same boat.
During the 14th GE, these high ranking officers headed by KSUs were very daring. They knowingly ignored and defied the above General Order. They were very bold and proud to post their photographs wearing BN uniforms campaigning in the the GE in the social media like Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and others. When they discovered that BN was trounced in the 14th GE, they were very fast to delete all their handsome photographs from the social media in order to wipe out the evidence and started to change their true colour.
These recalcitrant civil servants should also be sent to the JPA’s pool pending disciplinary actions. They should not be allowed to helm their current positions. PH Government must have a spring cleaning of the top management of all the Ministries. Many of the KSUs and heads of government agencies are still loyal to the BN.
Now these BN diehard supporters are still holding on their high positions in the ministries and government agencies but they have pretended to support PH. After 14th GE (May 9), some of them have immediately deleted their old Facebooks and Instagrams and started their new Facebooks and Instagrams with postings of photographs taken with the current PH leaders. This is their way of exhibiting their so-called loyalty to PH government.
The High Ranking Officers in Ministry of Tourism & Cultures and Tourism Malaysia
Some of those high ranking officers in the Ministry of Tourism and Cultures (MOTAC) and Tourism Malaysia (TM) were not fast enough to wipe out the evidence of their active participation in the campaign for BN in the 14th GE, HERE.
The Evidence of Post GE 14th
From the pictures above, little napoleons in MOTAC and TM have totally changed their “loyalties” overnight. For the whole month in May and June 2018, the top ranking officers in MOTAC and TM were busy running around having their handsome faces in photos taken with Ministers and Mentri Besar, HERE.
They hope to fool PH Ministers with such photographs. What a cheapo stunt!
Upon hearing rumour that the new MOTAC Minister is from Warisan Party, some of the little napoleons in TM took the trouble to fly to Sabah to attend the Warisan Raya Open House. This is one of the SOP of the little napoleons in MOTAC and TM. Showing superficial loyalties is their of life and to get their promotions to Jusa B, Jusa C and etc.
The Pictorial Evidence of Serious Violation of The Above General Order During GE
The KSU of MOTAC, Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah, DG of TM, Datuk Mirza Mohamed Taiyap, and Datuk Khani Daud, Deputy DG and now acting DG, were the leaders of the pack.
Below are the pictures of these culprits:
The leader of the pack, Datuk Rashidi bin Hasbullah, the KSU of MOTAC
He is one of the smooth operators in MOTAC. He has extremely good public relations. Yours truly believes that the Minister of MOTAC will be terribly impressed by him.
Datuk Seri Mirza bin Mohammad Taiyab, the Director General of TM.
He was charged for corruption and suspended from duties for a few years, was subsequently acquitted by the High Court but there was no appeal by AG Chambers, which is an extremely unusual practice. It is the policy of AG Chambers that it will appeal against all acquittals. He will be retiring in December 2018. But he was very actively lobbying for extension until 9 May 2018. He is now on leave prior to retirement.
The “famous” and super powerful Datuk Seri Khani Daud, the Deputy DG & Acting DG of TM.
He is now the acting DG of TM. He is actively lobbying to be confirmed as the DG of TM. Yours truly hopes that the new KSN will look at the record of this DATUK SERI in TM and with other authorities before confirmation. This Datuk Seri is extremely “famous” and powerful.
There were serious complaints about him by member of the public to the KSU but no actions were taken. It was only until the said complaint had reached the Biro Pengaguan Awam that minor action was taken to merely transfer a staff in TM Hq to overseas office without a proper investigation. KSN and the MOTAC Minister should do a check and the records will speak for itself. Yours truly hopes that a separate posting on the complaint is not necessary.
Datuk Razip bin Hassan, the Deputy Director General TM
Datuk Dr Ammar Gapur, Pengarah Kanan Bahagian Domestik & Acara (Grade Jusa C), & Tuan Zulkafli Yahya, Pengarah Kanan AERO (America, Europe & Oceana) (GraceJusa C)
Datuk Ammar Gapur is one of the little napoleons / smooth operators in TM. He is also the deputy president of KOPEMA (Koperasi Kakitangan Kementerian Pelancongan & Kebudayaaan Malaysia Bhd), the cooperative of MOTAC. Datuk Musa is the president.
KOPEMA is also one of the shareholders of Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd, which is involved in the “speedy Gonzales” direct-nego contract worth RM99.693 million, HERE & HERE. MACC had raided the TM office to seize documents and the result of the investigations are still pending.
The Council of Eminent Persons (CEP) had instructed Datuk Mirza to terminate this scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” RM99.693 mil deal. Yours truly believes that this scandalous deal has not been officially terminated by TM. Just see how powerful these little napoleons in MOTAC and TM.
KSN and/or the Minister of Tourism & Cultures should look into the activities and accounts of KOPEMA to see its activities conform with its goals and also to protect the interests of its members.
On a separate matter, KSN and the MOTAC Minister should read about the investigations by MACC in 2016 with regards to a Datuk Seri in TM, HERE.
In the interim, those little napoleons in the pictures above should be sent to the pool in JPA or suspended pending investigations but they are still running loose in MOTAC and TM.
