Yours truly had written about Ultra Kirana Sdn Bhd (UKSB), the visa processing companies several times, HERE, HERE & HERE and the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” deal worth RM99 mil between Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd (Geeko) and Tourism Malaysia (TM). Many of the readers have been complaining that reports have been lodged with MACC and why no actions have been taken.
By the way UKSB’s daily collections could be as high as RM500,000.00 and the main contributors are the Chinese tourists. The Chinese tourists were unhappy with the way the processing fees were charged with other fees. It is a lucrative business with negligible operating cost. Yours truly believes that no listed companies can match the daily income of UKSB.
Yours truly has been reliably informed of a piece of good news that MACC officers have been stationed in the Immigration Department Malaysia to investigate on the scandalous visa processing business involving UKSB.
Tuan Mohd Fardhi bin Ahmad (the “HEBAT ONE”), the Pengarah of Bahagian Visa, Pass & Permit of Immigration Department Malaysia.
The Immigration officer that could assist MACC is none other than the Pengarah Visa, Pass and Permit Department,Tuan Mohd Fardhi bin Ahmad. He is the “Hebat One” and a very knowledgeable government servant. He should give full cooperation and tell ALL about what he knows about the visa processing companies like UKSB, S5 Systems Sdn Bhd, Bestinet Sdn Bhd and others to the MACC officers. Since he heads this particular department he should have all information on UKSB at his finger tips. Furthermore, he had been seen travelling together with Tuan Wan Quoris Shah Bin Wan Abdul Ghani (a.k.a Wan Badak in the political circle in UMNO), who is one of the key players in visa processing “business”.
This “Hebat One” is very brave and appeared to be a protected specie. UKSB was on the limelight for some months after GE14. On 29 August 2018 this “Hebat One” saw it fit to announce in his Facebook/Instagram about a soft launch of the eVisa “Category Perubatan”. Apparently this is also part of the “service” provided by UKSB for a fees. Can anyone help how much does UKSB charged eVisa for this category of visitors and how many tourists have applied for the said eVisa?
Tuan Wan Quorsi Shah bin Wan Abdul Ghani (a.k.a Wan Badak in the political circle).
Wan Quoris Shah bin Wan Abdul Ghani / Wan Badak is the key player in UKSB. Initially, he was just a director in UKSB with Harry Lee Vui Khiun and En Fardzil Bin Ahmad. Wan Badak did not own a single share in UKSB then. Suddenly in 2018, SSM records shows that Wan Badak owned 200,000 shares in UKSB. Of course, he is a very rich man with a fleet of continental cars like Porsche, Ferrari and the like. It is an open secret that Wan Badak is a lieutenant to an ex-UMNO Minister.
The UKSB group pictures taken with top officials of Immigration Department Malaysia when in China
When YAB Tun Mahathir, PM, visited The People Republic of China (PRC) around 20 August 2018, a whole gang of UKSB officer also went to China too. You must be wondering why they were visiting the PRC at the same time as YAB Tun M. The DG of Immigration, Datuk Mustafa Ali and the “Hebat One” Tuan Mohd Fardhi Bin Ahmad, have been seen in the UKSB group picture with Wan Badak and gang. Of course, they couldn’t organise a meeting with YAB Tun M or invite Tun to visit UKSB’s office in Beijing.
The “Scandalous Speedy Gonzales” RM99 mil deal involving the “Special Piurpose Vehicle” Geeko with TM
Many readers are complaining why no actions by MACC pertaining to the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” RM99 mil deal involving Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd(Geeko) and Tourism Malaysia (TM). Just a little bit of background for new readers.
Geeko is just a few months old company and the little napoleons in TM saw it fit to appoint it under direct nego to do digital platform using Tencent Holding. This scandalous deal was evaluated, negotiated and sealed in ONE day, at which time Geeko was not even registered with Ministry of Finance.
When this scandalous deal was exposed in this blog, the then Chairman Chairman of TM, who is none other than Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei, who has been hailed to be a corporate genius when Najib was in power and had defended this scandalous deal all the way. Dato Dr Siew Ka Wei had also said in his press statement dated 1 June 2018 as follows:
“Geeko Technology was the local partner chosen by Tencent to implement the project here. The principal officers are known to Tencent Group. The choice of Geeko as a Special Purpose Vehicle for the said project was made by Tencent.” Please read HERE.
This was what we had suspected that Geeko is a “Special Purpose Vehicle” but unsure whether it was for Tencent Holding or someone else. A week later on 8 June 2018, Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei taken a totally different stand from 1 June with another statement stating that “Geeko is not a special vehicle vehicle chosen by Tencent, but collaboration partner of Tencent ..”. Was this statement an afterthought or made after being reprimanded by Tencent Holding or …? Only MACC could ascertain this glaring fact?
Another glaring fact is Ms Elizabeth Ken is, of course, the CEO of Geeko. She is also the media specialist in Redberry Media Group (Redberry). Redberry, Genovasi University, Malay Mail and others are related companies of of Ancom Bhd. The Executive Chairman of Ancom Bhd is Dato DR Siew Ka Wei. For the summary of the Speedy Gonzales scandalous deal please read HERE.
In June 2018 MACC had raided TM HQ and taken documents from it. The little napoleons in TM are still operating on a “business as usual” mode and it seems that this scandalous deal has not been terminated. In fact, there are many direct-nego contracts in the pipeline involving Global Renown Ltd, a company related to Datuk Tam Yun Tong, HERE.
The readers and yours truly hope that MACC will also take all the necessary actions against those involved in the said scandalous Speedy Gonzales deal, which involved RM99 mill of public fund, and other direct-nego contracts. It would appear that the little napoleons in TM are pushing ahead with the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” deal even though the CEP under Tun Daim had given specific instructions to terminate it. Of course, the little napoleons in TM are the law to themselves, HERE.
