Thanks God that at long last Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah (Rashidi) has officially retired as the KSU of MOTAC on 15 January 2019.

Rashidi’s retirement does not in anyway absolve him from the scandals in MOTAC and TM. He must be held accountable for facilitating the dubious ‘Speedy Gonzales’ Geeko deal costing the rakyat RM99.693 million and MOTAC/TM endorsement of MyBeauty which was led by Oriental Mace Group Berhad,  HERE & HERE.

Under the ‘Surat Pekeliling’, civil servants are prohibited to hold post in non government organisation.

 

The Dubious ‘Speedy Gonzales’ Geeko Started With Datuk Musa Yusof

Datuk Musa Yusof, the former Director of International Promotion (Africa/China). He has just been appointed DG of Tourism Malaysia.

It all started on 19 January 2018  when Datuk Musa Yusof (the new DG of TM), who was the then Director of International Promotion (Africa/China), devised the “Promosi Bersama Tourism Malaysia Dan Tencent/Geekol Tech Bagi Pemasaran Digital  (Smart Tourism)” (‘Joint Promotion’).

This so-called ‘Joint Promotion’ was not a joint promotion. It was a scheme to appoint Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd (Geeko) to to prepare a report which report cost TM RM1,167,900.00.  Datuk Musa Yusuf’s so-called ‘Joint Promotion’ was, of course, approved by the then DG of TM, Datuk Seri Mirza bin Mohamed Taiyab. TM paid Geeko RM1,167,900.00 for the preparation of the report!

Then Geeko prepared this so-called report to thereafter appoint Geeko for the  dubious ‘Speedy Gonzales’ deal worth RM99.693 million. As a result of this so-called report, TM valued, negotiated and signed the dubious ‘Speedy Gonzales’ in one day on 4 April 2018.  On 4 April 2018 Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd was not even registered with Minister of Finance.  For the the so-called ‘Joint Promotion’ by Datuk Musa Yusof please read HERE & HERE.

Visa Processing Is A Lucrative Business!

 

BEIJING, 2 Feb — Deputy Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, examined the electronic visa system (e-Visa) when he visited the Ultra Kirana Sdn Bhd’s One Stop Centre – OSC Malaysia in Beijing.  3rd from left: is the Malaysian Ambassador to China, Datuk Zainuddin Yahya who is a defender of OSC.
Extreme Right: Tuan Wan Quoris Shah Wan Abdul Ghani a.k.a Wan Badak.

 

On 19 October 2018 YB Dato’ Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (Zahid), president of UMNO, was slapped with 45 charges off money laundering involving RM72 mil and criminal breach of trust and accepting bribes involving RM42 mil, HERE.

Out of the 45 charges, 3 of which is connected with a visa processing company or One Stop Centre (OSC) known as Profound Radiance Sdn Bhd (Profound Radiance).  The charge sheet for the said 3 charges will be posted below.

Background

As early as in 2015 Nepal government was unhappy with the increased of visa processing fees more than five fold.  The Nepal governnment had protested about the excessive processing being charged for visa applications. A local company was appointed to work on behalf of Ultra Kirana Sdn Bhd (UKSB). For the full report by Asia News, HERE.

MACC has already started to investigate into the visa processing fees by UKSB from 2012 until 2018, HERE. Of course, Tuan Mohd Fardhi bin Ahmad, Pengarah Bahagian Visa (a.k.a. as “The Hebat One“, had denied that MACC was investigating into the activities of UKSB.  That detail was made before Zahid was charged for corruption and three of the charges were connected with one of the visa processing companies called Profound Radiance Sdn Bhd.

At any one time there were about 4 people working. Their job was to scan and key in the particulars of the applicant in the UKSB office.

The estimated daily income of UKSB is RM500,000.00. Its’ overhead is very negligible if compared two its daily income. All UKSB needs to do is to employ less than 10 staffs to key in the applicants particulars and send them back to Bukit Aman for clearance.  By 3 pm on the same day the same staffs will go to our Embassy to get the stickers for those that have been approved. Thereafter, they will stick the stickers on the the passports.

UKSB is the ‘big boy’ in the visa processing business.  Profound Radiance and S5 Systems Sdn Bhd are the new kids in the block.

Profound Radiance Sdn Bhd

List of Shareholders of Profound Radiance Sdn Bhd

Azlan Shah bin Jaffril holds 750,000 shares in Profound Radiance Sdn Bhd (Profound Radiance). He has been named in the three charges for giving the three Profound Radiance Sdn Bhd cheque to the accused, Zahid.

Yours truly is curious about the identity of this Mazrina binti Mustafa, who holds the other 250,000 shares. Rumour has it she is politically connected.  Can anyone help with more info on her?

Out of the 45 charges 3 of them, namely the 16th, 17th and 18th charge are connected to Profound Radiance, which one of the companies involved with visa processing business and One Stop Centre (OSC).  In all the three charges, Azlan Shah Jeffril was name as the person who gave the bribe to Zahid.

The other two companies involved in the visa processing business and/or One Stop Centre (OSC) are Ultra Kirana Sdn Bhd (UKSB) and S5 Systems Sdn Bhd.

Tuan Wan Quoris Shah Bin Wan Abdul Ghani aka Wan Badak is one of the key players in UKSB.

The key players in UKSB are Wan Quoris Shah bin Wan Abdul Ghani a.k.a. Wan Badak and Harry Lee Vui Khiun, who is from Tawau, Sabah. Wan Badak used to exhibit his fleet of cars like Porsche, Ferrari and etc in his Facebook.  After May 9, 2018 (GE 14th) when BN government was toppled, he deleted his Facebook. It is an open secret that he is a lieutenant of the ex-Minister of Youth & Sport, YB Khairy Jamaluddin.

For the background of UKSB, please read HERE.

S5 Systems Sdn Bhd

Left: Tan Sri Mohamed Al Amin. Right:  Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei.  Prior to May 9, 2018, these are the two most powerful corporate figures in Malaysia.

Just to digress a little. The key player in S5 Systems Sdn Bhd is none other than Tan Sri Al Amin, who is closed to the ex-PM, Datuk Seri Najib Razak.  Tan Sri Al Amin is a business partner of Dato’ Seri Siew Ka Wei (who is equally closed to the ex-PM) in Ancom Bhd (Ancom).  Ancom’s  subsidiaries includes  Redberry Media Group, Malay Mail, Titanium Compass Sdn Bhd (10 years exclusive contract for  advertising space for MRT and stations), Puncak Berlian Sdn Bhd, Meru Utama Sdn Bhd (exclusive advertising space contract  in KLIA for 7 years plus 3 years from May 2014), Ancom Kimia Sdn Bhd and others.

Ancom Kimia Sdn Bhd had been awarded with 5 years exclusive supply contract of Methanol by Petronas Chemicals Group Sdn Bhd. Yours truly believes that the 5 years monopoly is expiring in December 2018.  It is trying to renew the exclusive contract for another 5 years but six companies (users) are  protesting against the monopoly.

Both of these corporate figures are extremely powerful and effective up to May 9, 2018!

MACC Is Investigating On UKSB

Recently MACC had asked for data on visa processing activities that were connected to UKSB from 2012 to 2018 from Immigration Department Malaysia, HERE.  Rumour has it that Wan Badak had been questioned by MACC.  MACC should interview the main player in UKSB, Mr Harry Lee Vui Khiun.

Lets buy our popcorns and watch out for more movies from now on.

KSN & Minister Of Tourism: Beware Of The Smooth Operators!

 

The BN supporters and smooth operators. Left: Datuk Seri Khani Bin Daud, the Acting DG of Tourism Malaysia,  Datuk Tam Yun Tong, the man behind Global Renown Ltd and MCA representative in Japan,  and Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah, KSU of Ministry of Tourism and Culture (MOTAC).  This picture was recently taken when Datuk Seri Khani and Datuk Rashidi attended the Japan Association Of Travel Agents (JATA) Conference in Japan.

It is an open secret that the above trio namely, Datuk Seri Khani Daud (the Acting DG of Tourism Malaysia, Datuk Seri Tam Yun Tong and Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah, the Secretary General of Ministry of Tourism and Culture, are best of pals in TM. They are also very powerful person in their own rights. They are the protected species.

Despite being exposed for openly campaigning for BN during the GE 14th in HERE for outright violations of General Orders, the new Chief Secretary of the Government (KSN), Datuk Seri Ismail Bin Bakar, dared not take any action against them. Yours truly had posted this to remind the KSN of what actions to be taken against these little napoleons and yet KSN is not bothered about it, HERE.   Just imagine how HEBAT they are!

In future if civil servants want to take part in political activities please feel free to do so and if KSN or anyone trying to take any actions against them please show the authorities this posting which contains all the photographic evidences of the little napoleons wearing the blue BN shirts openly campaigning. Fear not about the General Orders, it is just like scrap papers bundled together to make it a booklet.

Datuk Seri Tam Yun Tong

Yours truly would like to remind the readers about this powerful character within TM, the Datuk Seri Tam Yun Tong (Datuk Tam).  Why Datuk Tam is a powerful man in TM? He is the CEO of Eithosim Shoji Co Ltd in Japan and TM had awarded many advertising contracts worth ten of millions Ringgit in Japan.

Datuk Tam is also the MCA representative in Japan, HERE.

For reason best known to Datuk Tam and those involved in the said advertising contracts, Eithosin Shoji Co Ltd was abandoned.   A few years ago, Datuk Tam and his outfit incorporated Global Renown Ltd in Hong Kong.  It seems that Global Renown Ltd has replaced Eithosin Shoji.  Global Renown Ltd is now a household name in TM.

To cut the long story short, in 2017/2018 TM had committed RM160,702,958.58 for its advertising campaign and RM91,693,382.90 of which was awarded to Datuk Seri Tam’s Global Renown Ltd. In another words, Global Renown Ltd had been awarded more than half of the said budget via direct nego contracts!  Isn’t Global Renown Ltd is equally Hebat as Datuk Seri Tam?  For full details please read HERE.

 

The new Minister of Tourism & Cultures, YB Datuk Mohamadin Haji Ketapi, have been surrounded by the smooth operators and/or BN staunched supporters. Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah took the selfie and accompanied by none other than Datuk Seri Tam. This picture was recently taken during the Japan Association Of Travel Agents (JATA) Conference in Japan.

Whilst we are appreciative that our Minister, YB Datuk Mohamadin Hj Ketapi, and KSU Datuk Rashidi Hasbullah have been being treated to the beautiful meals in the Malaysian restaurant, which is owned by Datuk Seri Tam, in Japan, we hope that direct nego contracts will not be the norm in Ministry of Tourism and Culture (MOTAC) under the new PH government.

Ms Elizabeth Ken is there CEO of Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd. She is a Media Specialist of Redberry Media Group, which is part of Ancom Bhd.

We also hope that the “smooth operators”/little napoleons in MOTAC and TM have properly briefed YB Minister about the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” RM99 million Geeko Tech direct nego deal, HERE, and that Council of Eminent Persons (CEP) had advice TM to terminate it.  Until this date, this scandalous direct nego contract which involved Ms Elizabeth Ken, who is the Media Specialist of Redberry Media Group and it is part of Ancom Bhd.  The Executive Chairman of Ancom Bhd is of course, Datuk DR Siew Ka Wei, the famous corporate genius and former Chairman of TM.  The “smooth operators”/little napoleons of TM and MOTAC are so hebat that they have defied the CEP and ultimately the PH Government.

Dear Mr Minister, what are you doing about this scandalous Speedy Gonzales” deal?   Is it true that a few direct nego proposals from Global Renown Ltd are in the pipeline waiting to be approved?

Yours truly hopes that YB Minister will be mindful of the direct nego contracts that were awarded for 2017/2018 to Global Renown Ltd and investigate into this unhealthy practices.

Siew Ka Wei: Who Doctored The Evidence?? (“Speedy Gonzales” Deal)

Ms Elizabeth Ken’s profile on the website of Likendin captured on 31-5-2018.

Updates as on 13-06-2018 @ 12 noon:  It is so refreshing to note the culprits are behaving themselves a little bit.  There is no change to the professional profile of Ms Elizabeth Ken on LinkedIn Website as of 12 June 2018 (i.e. Elizabeth Ken the “Media Specialist Dallas Media Group” with the same interest in Redberry Media Group). Yours truly hopes that the culprits will not mess around with the documents connected to the scandalous GEEKO’s transaction like what they have done to the said Elizabeth Ken’s profile on Linkedin.

 

Yesterday, we shared the above image to provide an interesting insights into the relationship between Yg Bhg Dato’ DR Siew Ka Wei (“Dato’ Dr Siew”) and Ms Elizabeth Ken through Redberry Media Group and Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd (“GEEKO Tech“), in HERE.
