Little Napoleons’ “Speedy Gonzales” Attempt To Secure Promotion Of Datuk Musa Foiled

Datuk Musa Bin Yusof, the newly appointed DG of Tourism Malaysia and the proposer of the infamous “Promosi Bersama”, please read below.

The Tourism Malaysia (TM) Board of Directors has foiled an attempt by the ‘Little Napoleons’ in TM to use an old letter of clearance or good character by the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to support the promotion of Datuk Musa  Bin Yusuf as Director General (DG) of TM.

The ‘Little Napoleon’/Staunch Supporter of BN

Tuan Ahmad Johanif Bin Mohd Ali, recently transferred to HR Department. He proudly posted his picture supporting BN in his Facebook.

The other ‘Little Napoleons”, Puan Rafidah Binti Idris, Director of Human Resources.

The ‘Little Napoleons’ in Human Resources Department of TM (HR) head by its Director, Puan Rafidah Idris (Rafidah) and her deputy Tuan Ahmad Johanif Bin Mohd Ali (Ahmad Johanif) have been ordered to get a fresh letter of clearance or good character on Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf from MACC.

KSU Of MOTAC & KSN To Take Actions

Just to digress a little, Ahmad Johanif is free to support whichever party he wants but as a civil servant he must be neutral.  As a civil servant, he is governed by the General Orders, HERE. The KSU of MOTAC and KSN should look into the conduct of Ahmad Johanif during the 14 GE and the only few postings in his Facebook reproduced above. There are more negative postings of PH government and YAB Tun Dr  Mahathir!

TM’s Board Meeting of 25 March 2019

On 25 March 2019, the Board of Directors was presented with the papers to recommend or support the promotion of Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf to the rank of Jusa B as a prelude to confirm him as the Director General of TM.  The HR headed by Rafidah and Ahmad Johanif included amongst other documents there was a one year old letter of clearance or good character of Datuk Musa Yusuf from MACC to support his promotion.

Both of them knew or ought to have known that the standard procedure for proposing an officer for high ranking promotion in TM must be supported by current letter of clearance or good character from MACC.  Yet these two Little Napoleons saw it fit to knowingly overlook this elementary procedure for special reason best known to two of them.

By the way the ‘Little Napoleons’  Raffish was recently promoted as Director of HR and Ahmad Johanif was recently transferred to be her deputy after the “Speedy Gonzales” elevation of Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf as the DG of TM, HERE.

The Scandalous ‘Speedy Gonzales” RM99.693 Million

Front: Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei, the former chairman of TM and Executive Chairman of Ancom Bhd in handcuffs & orange t-shirt   Back:  Ms Elizabeth Ken, the media specialist of Redberry Media Group, CEO & shareholder of GEEKO.

If these two ‘Little Napoleons’ were to carry out their duties diligently, they would have known that TM is currently burdened with the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” RM99.673 million Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd’s (GEEKO) deal, HERE. They knew in mid January 2019 from the massive publicities generated by the arrest and remand of Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei, who at the material time when the said scandalous deal was struck on 4 April 2018 was the chairman of TM, and Ms Elizabeth Ken Tzu Ying by MACC for four days, HERE.

Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei & Ms Elizabeth Ken Tzu Ying

Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei is the former chairman of TM and current executive chairman of Ancom Bhd, MD of Nylex Bhd and MD of Redberry Media Group (Redberry).  Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei is also the directors of many outfits namely, Meru Utama Sdn Bhd (awarded with 10 years exclusive advertising space contract in KLIA), Titanium Compass Sdn Bhd (awarded with exclusively 10 years advertising space contract in MRT stations) and others. The defunct Malay Mail is part of Redberry.  Ms Elizabeth Ken Tzu Ying is the media specialist of Redberry. Ms Elizabeth Ken is the share holder and CEO of GEEKO

Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf, the newly appointed DG of TM for two years

These two ‘Little Napoleons” Rafidah and Ahmad Johanif were apparently suffering from very severe wilful blindness when the proposal papers were prepared to support the promotion of Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf for the Board of Directors of TM for approval.  They knowingly omitted to present the glaring facts below with the predominant purpose to deceive or at best mislead the Board of Directors of TM into approving the promotion of Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf.

These two ‘Little Napoleons” should be suspended and face disciplinary actions for serious misconducts for knowingly presented the outdated MACC letter of clearance for Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf.

The Glaring Facts

  • When Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd (GEEKO) was incorporated on 6 November 2017 and Koperasi Kakitanggan Kementerian Pelancongan Kebudayaan Malaysia Bhd (also known as KOPEMA) was one of its shareholder holding 10,000 shares, HERE;
  • Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf is the President of KOPEMA;
  • The Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf‘s infamous “Promos Bersama” of 19 January 2018;
“Minit Kelulusan” from Datuk Musa for his “Proposal Bersama” To Be Approved by Datuk Mirza, the then DG.
Page 4 of “Minit Kelulusan” signed by Datuk Musa Bin Yusof, now the DG of TM.
  • On 19 January 2018 Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf, the then Director of International Promotion (Africa/China) submitted a proposal known as “Promosi Bersama Dengan Tourism Malaysia Dan Tencent/Geeko Bagi Promosi Pemasaran Digital (Smart Tourism)” (“Promosi Bersama”) cost TM a whooping RM1,167,900.00, to the then DG of TM, Datuk Seri Mirza Bin Mohamed Taiyab (Datuk Seri Mirza).  Please read HERE  & HERE
  • The said Infamous “Promos Bersama”, of course, approved in lighting speed by the then DG of TM, Datuk Seri Mirza.
  • TM paid Geeko RM1,167,900.00 in lightning speed for the so-called “Promosi Bersama”, which Datuk Musa’s Bin Yusuf told the press that he was not aware of and he had instructed his officers to look into the matter, HERE & HERE;
  • Until now there no news of Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf’s investigation into his  Infamous “Promosi Bersama” that cost TM RM1,167,900.00;
  • Prior to the so-called “Promosi Bersama” of Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf, TM was already trying to appoint Deloitte Singapore and/or Deloitte Malaysia to conduct a ‘kajian” on the similar subject of digital marketing.  However, the appointment did not materialise.

The infamous “Promosi Bersama” was not a joint promotion but in reality it was a scheme devised to appoint GEEKO to prepare a so-called “kajian” to pave the way for TM to enter into the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” RM99.693 million contract with GEEKO, which deal was evaluated, negotiated and agreement was prepared and executed in one day on 4 April 2018.

Luckily the Board of Director spotted the glaring flaw in the supporting documents to promote Datuk Musa Yusuf i.e. the outdated letter of clearance or good character of him from MACC.  However, the Board approved the proposal in principle subject to the submission of a current dated letter of clearance or good character from MACC for Datuk Musa Yusuf and to be approved by KSN.

MACC should go deeper into the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” GEEKO RM99.693 million deal by digging into the KOPEMA shareholding in GEEKO and said infamous “Promosi Bersama” by Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf.

Stay Tuned.

Ancom Acquisition Of Dormant Company Is Puzzling

The screenshot of Ancom Bhd‘s public announcement of its acquisition of Media Works Sdn Bhd, which is a dormant company, for RM1.

 

It would have been an otherwise a normal affair for a public listed company to acquire shareholding in a Sdn Bhd.  What had made it so strange was the acquisition of a dormant company with a RM1 paid up share capital.

On 1 March 2019 Ancom Bhd (Ancom) had made the above public announcement in Bursa Malaysia that it had acquired one ordinary share in Media Works Sdn Bhd (Media Works), which was incorporated on 13 December, 2018, and it is dormant. Isn’t it a bit unusual to classify a 13 months old as dormant?

Of course, the announcement didn’t tell us that Media Works has  several special common features with other companies, which are connected with Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei, Datuk Wong Sai Wan and Ms Elizabeth Ken Tzu Ying.

 

The Common Registered Office 

The registered office of Media Work is the same as Geeko (Elizabeth Ken is the CEO & shareholder), En Vogue Media Sdn Bhd is one the shareholder of Geeko (Elizabeth Ken is the director & shareholder of En Vogue Media Sdn Bhd), Puncak Berlian Sdn Bhd (Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei & Datuk Wong Sai Wan are the directors), Titanium Compass Sdn Bhd Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei & Datuk Wong Sai Wan are the directors) and Nylex (Malaysia) Bhd (Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei is the Group MD).

 

Ancom’s Corporate Structure

Ancom Bhd’s corporate structure published in its website.

 

The Very Special One Share

The very special one share that Ancom Bhd bought.

It bogles the mind why a public listed company bought a dormant company with a shareholding of RM1 and the said share belongs to none other than Mr Stephen Geh Sin Whye. You sill see from the SSM records below that Mr Stephen Geh Sim Whye is indeed a very special personality. He is the company secretary to:

  • Media Works Sdn Bhd (a dormant company)
  • Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd (involved with the ‘Speedy Gonzales” contract worth RM99.693 million with TM and Elizabeth Ken is its CEO and shareholder)
  • En Vogue Media Sdn Bhd (belongs to Elizabeth Ken & her sister)
  • Nylex (Malaysia) Berhad (a public listed company & subsidiary of Ancom Bhd. Dato’ Siew Ka Wei is the group MD)
  • Titanium Compass Sdn Bhd (an outfit related to Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei & Datuk Wong Sai Wan)
  • Puncak Berlian Sdn Bhd (an outfit related to Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei & Datuk Wong Sai Wan)

 

The Ancom listed subsidiaries & Mr Stephen Geh Sim Whye

In Puncak Berlian Sdn Bhd (Puncak Berlian)both Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei and Datuk Wong Sai Wan are the directors.  Mr Stephen Geh Sim Whye, is the company secretary.

In Titanium Compass Sdn Bhd (Titanium Compass), both Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei and Datuk Wong Sai Wan are also the directors.  Mr Stephen Geh Sim Whye is the company secretary.

In Nylex (Malaysia ) Bhd (Nylex), Mr Stephen Geh Sim Whye is the company secretary.

Is it by chance that the famous Mr Stephen Geh Sim Whye is also the company secretary for the scandals tainted Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd and En Vogue media Sdn Bhd?

Is it also by chance that that Puncak Berlian, Titanium Compass and Nylex shared the common registered office address with Geeko and EN Vogue Meida?

For the benefit of new readers, here’s a short background of the shady “Speedy Gonzales” Geeko deal with Tourism Malaysia worth RM99.693 million.

 

Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd

Geeko was involved in the dubious ’Speedy Gonzales’ digital platform direct nego contract worth RM99.693 million with Tourism Malaysia (TM), HERE.

SSM record of Geeko’s shareholders

Geeko was incorporated on 6 November 2017.  Its shareholders are as shown above in the SSM record.

Ms Elizabeth Ken Tzu Ying (Elizabeth Ken) and her sister are the directors and shareholders of En Vogue Media Sdn Bhd.

Koperasi Kakitangan Kementerian Pelancongan Dan Kebudayaan Malaysia Berhad a.k.a. KOPEMA.

At the material time, Datuk Musa Bin Yusuf (Musa) was the then director of International Promotion for (Africa/China) and is the president of KOPEMA.  The deputy president is Datuk Ammar A Ghapar, senior director of Domestic & Events of Tourism Malaysia (TM), HERE.

 

Datuk Musa Bini Yusuf (Musa) – The Facilitator

Datuk Musa Yusof, the newly appointed DG of Tourism Malaysia.

On 19 January 2018, Musa  submitted a proposal known as “Promosi Bersama  Tourism Malaysia dan Tencent/Geeko Tech Bagi Pemasaran Digital (Smart Tourism)” (“Promosi Bersama”) to the then DG of TM, Datuk Seri Mirza Mohamed Taiyab (Mirza), for approval.  It was, of course, approved in lightning speed by Mirza.

It would appear that it was a straight forward “Promosi Bersama”.  It was not. To cut the long story short, the said Promosi Bersama was so devised to appoint Geeko to do a study to appoint Geeko to put in place the so-called digital platform for RM99.693 million in TM.  This so-called study cost TM a whooping RM1,167,900.00. For full detail of this Promosi Bersama, please read “Is Tourism Malaysia Everyone’s “ATM”?.

On 4 April 2018 (Iin one day) TM evaluated, negotiated, agreement prepared and the agreement was sealed on the same day.  Elizabeth Ken Tzu Ying (Elizabeth Ken) executed the said agreeement on behalf of Geeko and Mirza for TM. For full details of the said shady “Speedy Gonzales” RM99.693 million, please read HERE.

By the way, Geeko was only rgistered with Ministry of Finance on 6 April 2018, two days after signing the said agreement. It was a case of putting the cart before the horse!

 

Elizabeth Ken, The Media Specialist of Redberry Media Group

Ms Elizabeth Ken is the CEO of Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd. She is also the media specialist of Redberry Media Group.

At the material time, Elizabeth Ken is the media specialist of Redberry Media Group (Redberry).  She is also the CEO of the scandals tainted Geeko. Redberry is part of Ancom Bhd.  Redberry is a related outfit of Dato Dr’ Siew Ka Wei.  For full detail please read HERE& HERE.

 

Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei, The Corporate Genius

Left: Tan Sri Mohamed Al Amin. Right: Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei.

Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei is the executive chairman of Ancom Bhd.  He is also the group managing director of Nylex (Malaysia) Bhd.  Redberry Media Group (Redberry) is also part of Ancom. The defunct Malay Mail (print edition) was part of Redberry. Redberry is a one of the outfits related Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei.

Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei and Tan Sri Mohamed Al Amin are business partners. Prior to the 14th General Elections. Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei had been hailed to be a corporate genius in Malaysia. Hence, many of his related outfits like Ancom Chemical Sdn Bhd (supply of Methanol from Petronas), Meru Utama Sdn Bhd (advertising space contract in airports) , Titanium Compass Sdn Bhd (advertising contract in MRT stations) and etc have been awarded with long term exclusive contracts.

Titanium Compass Sdn Bhd had been awarded 10 years exclusive advertising space contract in MRT stations, HERE. The PH Government should investigate into this and other monopoly contracts. Monopoly contract is never good for our country and should be terminated.

When yours truly exposed the shady “Speedy Gonzales” Geeko deal on 30 May 2018, Dato Dr Siew Ka Wei was the Chairman of Tourism Malaysia (TM), HERE.

He was actively defending the said dubious RM99.693 million deal. Initially he was in great pain to fool Malaysians that Geeko was a special purpose vehicle chosen by Tencent Holding for the “Speedy Gonzales” RM99.693 million project.

In a press statement dated 1 June 2018, Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei said:

Geeko Technology was the local partner chosen by Tencent to implement the project here. The principal officers are known to the Tencent Group. The choice of Geeko as a Special Purpose Vehicle for the project was made by Tencent.

One week later on 8 June 2018, Dato’ Siew Ka Wei did an about turn to drastically change the position by stating that:

Geeko Tech is not a special purpose vehicle chosen by Tencent …

Both press statements are reproduced in the article: Dato’ DR Siew Ka Wei: GEEKO – “Special Purpose Vehicle” For Tencent or …??

 

The “Famous” Editor In Chief Of The Defunct Malay Mail, Datuk Wong Sai Wan

Malay mail editor in chief, Datuk Wong Sai Wan, pressing the button on 30-11-2018 to finally bury Malay Mail for good.

Malay Mail’s editor-in-chief is none other that the extremely “famous” Datuk Wong Sai Wan, who featured very prominently as director in at least two of Dato Dr Siew Ka Wei’s related outfits namely, Puncak Berlian Sdn Bhd and Titanium Compass Sdn Bhd.  It is not the norm for editor in chief of a newspapers to be director of companies. This is how Datuk Wong Sai Wan maintains his professionalism as the editor in chief.

 

MACC

On 7 June 2018 MACC had commenced its investigations into this dubious “Speedy Gonzales” Geeko deal. It raided TM HQ and seized documents. However, the then DG of TM, Datuk Seri Mirza Mohamed Taiyab denied it was a raid but just to visit TM Hq and “inquire” into the said dubious deal, HERE.

 

2nd left: Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei     4th left: Elizabeth Ken, the CEO and shareholder of Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd.

On 9 January 2019, Dato Dr Siew Ka Wei, the former chairman of Tourism Malaysia and chairman of Ancom Bhd and Group MD of Nylex Bhd, and Elizabeth Ken, the CEO, shareholder of Geeko and media specialist for Redberry Media Group, were arrested and subsequently detained by MACC for four days on a court order, HERE.  Please see also Star report, HERE.

 

Picture of Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei when he was released. He was the chairman of TM.

On 13 January 2019, both of Dato’ Siew Ka Wei and Elizabeth Ken were released from the custody of MACC, HERE.

 

The Common Feature – Stephen Geh Sim Whye, The Company Secretary

Media Works’s company secretary is Mr Stephen Geh Sim Whye. He is also the company for Geeko Tech & En Vogue Media (belongs to Elizabeth Ken & her sister).

 

Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd’s List of Directors. Mr Stephen Geh Sim Whye is also its company secretary.

Were the above features in Geeko and EN Vogue Media that were common with companies related to the outfits of Dato’ Siew Ka Wei and his Malay Mail’s editor in chief, Datuk Wong Sia Wan, a mere coincidence?

Perhaps Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei would like to defend the above like what he did on the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” Geeko RM99.693 million deal.

Stay Tuned.

 

Is Tourism Malaysia Everyone’s “ATM”?

Datuk Musa Bin Yusof, the newly appointed DG of Tourism Malaysia. He is a genius by all counts.

Updates at 11 am on 29-01-2019:  The Minister of MOTAC and Datuk Musa Bin Yusof, the newly appointed DG of TM will be launching a Joint Incentive Tourism Development Programs in KLIA at 2 pm today (29-1-2019). The press should ask Datuk Musa about his involvement in the Speedy Gonzales deal and whether the deal was planned well before the inception of Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd on 6-11-2017.  Please see below for the publicity generated by the misleading “Promosi Bersama TM/Tencent/Geeko” scheme devised by Datuk Musa Yusof in HERE

 

It is now clear that the shady “Speedy Gonzales” RM99.693 million deal involving Tourism Malaysia (TM) and an infant IT company, Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd (Geeko), was planned months ahead.

The new revelations which are part of yours truly’s continuing probe into the ambiguous “Speedy Gonzales” deal show an amateurish rip-off of TM funds.

Fundamentals in awarding contracts and making payments were neglected, suggesting that TM was an easy agency to milk, or rather an automated teller machine (ATM).

The Arrest & Remand of Dato’ Siew Ka Wei & Ms Elizabeth Ken

Both Dato’ Siew Ka Wei, former TM chairman and current chairman of Ancom Bhd, MD of Nylex Bhd and Ms Elizabeth Ken were in orange “uniform”.

The “Speedy Gonzales” Geeko deal exploded when Dato’ Siew Ka Wei and the CEO of Geeko, Ms Elizabeth Ken Tzu Ying were arrested and remanded for four days by MACC on 10 January, 2019.

The Little Napoloens In TM

The little napoleons in the top management of TM have had inkling of the dubious “Speedy Gonzales” RM99.693 million deal as early as in November 2017 when Geeko was incorporated.

Datuk Musa Bin Yusof , the then Director of Bahagian Promosi Antarabangsa (Asia/Afrika), was a known promoter of digital platform/Geeko deal in TM.  Datuk Musa knew or ought to have known that in 2016/2017 TM had already paid RM40 million to Kraken Interactive Sdn Bhd (Kraken), which was represented by Raja Firdaus and Mr Ron Chow the director of Kraken, to provide TM with digital marketing platform. Why was Datuk Musa so active in promoting another digital platform through Geeko in 2017/ 2018?

In January 2018,  a ‘foolproof’ scheme was devised to avoid seeking MAMPU’s approval to appoint Geeko to prepare a report /Kajian for TM to appoint Geeko!

The Relationship Between Datuk Musa & Geeko

Of course, Datuk Musa didn’t put in his “proposal” of his precarious position of conflict of interest:   that he was on the TM top management; and president of KOPEMA (Koperasi Kakitanggan MOTAC).

KOPEMA is a shareholder of Geeko. What a brilliant “proposal” by Datuk Musa!  From the said “proposal” below you will no doubt conclude that Datuk Musa is a genius!

No wonder he was promoted to be the DG of TM in a ‘Speedy Gonzales’ fashion.

The little napoleons in TM love quickies.

The evidence below clearly shows that Datuk Musa not only played an active part to promote the shady “Speedy Gonzales” but was also instrumental in securing the appointment of Geeko as the “go-between company” on the pretext of providing the digital platform for TM.

For the benefit of new readers, let yours truly reproduced some of the glaring facts.

Background

Pic of Dato’ Siew Ka Wei when he was released by MACC. He was the chairman of TM. He is the current chairman of Ancom Bhd and MD of Nylex Bhd.

 Dato’ Siew Ka Wei

At the material time, Dato’ Siew Ka Wei was the high- flying chairman of TM. Currently he is the chairman of Ancom Bhd, MD for Nylex Bhd and CEO of Redberry Media Group (Redberry).  The defunct print and online Malay Mail are part of his ‘empire’.

He is also a well-known corporate genius but not after May 9, 2018 though. He has many outfits like Titanium Compass Sdn Bhd (exclusive advertising contract with MRT),  Meru Utama Sdn Bhd (exclusive advertising contract in Malaysia airports), Ancom Chemical Sdn Bhd (exclusive Methanol contract from Petronas), Puncak Berlian Sdn Bhd and many others.

Geeko, Titanium Compass Sdn Bhd and Berlin Puncak Sdn Bhd share the same registered office address and the same company secretary, Mr Stephen Geh Sim Whye. What a co-incidence?? Please read HERE.

Ms Elizabeth Ken, the media specialist of Redberry Media Group. She is also the CEO & shareholder of Geeko.

Ms Elizabeth Ken

Elizabeth Ken is one of the shareholders and CEO of Geeko. She is also the media specialist of Redberry whose CEO is, of course, Dato’ Siew Ka Wei.

Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd (Geeko)

On 6 November 2017, Geeko was incorporated. Elizabeth Ken and her company EN Vouge Sdn Bhd and KOPEMA (Kakitangan Koperasi MOTAC) are the shareholders. At that material time, Datuk Musa Yusof, was president of KOPEMA and director of Bahagian Pomosi Antarabangsa (Asia/Afrika). Datuk Ammar A Gapar is one of the director in TM and the deputy president of KOPEMA.

The little napoleons in TM have been playing deaf and dumb over the ‘Speedy Gonzales” Geeko deal. Then we witnessed the sudden crowning of ‘Musa the Great’ as the Director General (DG) of TM.  It was a “Speedy Gonzales” promotion.

When yours truly first wrote about the shady “Speedy Gonzales” Geeko deal, Dato’ Siew Ka Wei defended Geeko deal to the hilt. The little napoleons in TM have gone into silent mode since then.

The Conflict of Interest

Clear case of Conflict of interest, read HEREHERE.

The “PLAN”

On 19 January, 2018, about 73 days after the incorporation of Geeko, Datuk Musa and other little napoleons hatched a scheme called “PROMOSI BERSAMA TOURISM MALAYSAI DAN TENCENT/GEEKO TECH BAGI PROMOSI PASARAN DIGITAL (SMART TOURISM)” (“Promosi Bersama Geeko”) that  cost TM a whooping RM1,167,900.00 for the so-called report/Kajian.

If TM were to directly appoint Geeko to prepare a report/Kajian for an IT Project it would have to submit the plan/proposal for approval to MAMPU. That would be time consuming and may not get approval.

Datuk Musa and the other little napoleons in TM must have mooted the scandalous Geeko/Digital Platform many weeks if not months before 19 January, 2018.

From the said proposal for “Promosi Bersama”, it will not be too far fetched to suggest that Datuk Musa and gang must have planned the scandalous Geeko deal well before the incorporation of GEEKO on 6 November, 2017.

The Bomb Shell & so-called Proposal For “Promosi Bersama TM dan Geeko/Tencent”

Please see the said questionable proposal “Promosi Bersama” by Datuk Miusa Bin Yusof below.

Page 1 “Minit Kelulusan” from Datuk Musa for his “Proposal Bersama” To Be Approved by Datuk Mirza, the then DG.

 

Page 2 of the “Minit Kelulusan
Page 3 of “Minit Kelulusan
Page 4 of “Minit Kelulusan” was signed by Datuk Musa Bin Yusof, now the DG of TM.

 

In a nutshell it was just a simple proposal for a report/Kajian to be prepared by Geeko to appoint itself to be a “special purpose vehicle” for someone. What a brilliant proposal!

The Glaring Conflicts of Interest

Firstly, the important glaring conflict of interest was that Datuk Musa did not declare in the said proposal:

The possible conflict of interest on Musa’s part as the president of KOPEMA because KOPEMA is a shareholder of Geeko. He is also the director of Bahagian Antarabangsa (Afrika/China).  At that material time, it seemed Datuk Mirza, who was previously charged twice for corruption, very innocently approved the said  “Promosi Bersama” for RM1,167, 900.00.

The said astronomical sum was paid for producing a report/KAJIAN. Not bad for a five-month old company to be awarded and paid RM1,167,900.00 by a government agency for a simple job.

Secondly, on 19.1.2017 the appointment of Geeko was not only unprecedented but violated the regulations of Ministry of Finance (MOF) because Geeko was not registered with MOF.

Geeko was only registered with MOF on 6-4-2018. However, the “Speedy Gonzales” contract was signed on 4-4-2018, two days before the said registration. This is evident of the little napoleons in TM who did not give a damn about MOF rules. TM is just a cash cow for some.

Thirdly, there was no real promotional activities for the so-called “Promosi Bersama TM dan Tencent/Geeko”.

The Glaring Points In The Said “Promosi Bersama”

Para 4.           JUSTIFIKASI BAHAGIAN (Glaring section)

4.1      Projek ini adalah wajar  dilakukan bagi membantu dalam pembangunan SMART Tourism. Khidmat dari Syarikat Tencent Technology yang digunakan oleh kajian ini juga adalah bersesuaian memandangkan syarikat ini adalah syarikat gergasi di China yang mempunyai pengalaman yang meluas dalam bidang teknologi.

The glaring questions are: 

Why didn’t TM go direct to Tencent Technology?

Why TM had to appoint a five-month old company to do the “KAJIAN” to use Tencent Technology?

Why was there a need for a “KAJIAN” from a five-month old company to appoint a big company like Tencent Technology, which is equivalent to Google or Yahoo?

Isn’t it obvious that Geeko was a go-between for this “Speedy Gonzales” deal? (On 1-6-2018 Dato’ Siew Ka Wei had declared that Geeko is a “special purpose vehicle” for Tencent, which he subsequently did an about turn 7 days later.)

 

Para 5.     IMPLIKASI KEWANGAN

Jumlah kos anggaran adalah sebanyak RM1,167,900.00 menggunakan peruntukan sedia ada mengurus 2018 Bahagian Pegiklanan, Tourism Malaysia.

At the material time TM was (and is still) operating under deficit of more than RM130 million.

If this is the case, where is the so-called “PERUNTUKAN”?

Was the so-called “PERUNTUKKAN” a means to siphon off RM1,176,900.00 from TM?

The Salient Facts:

Datuk Mirza (ex-DG of TM) approved the said above proposal  “Promosi Bersma” by Datuk Musa and Puan Azleen Mat Zip, TM Director of Finance, paid RM1,167,900.00 to Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd.  Puan Azleen had a copy of the so-called Report/”KAJIAN” prepared by Geeko to appoint Geeko/Tencent.

Sources in TM also confirmed that there was no agreement for the so-called “PROMOSI BERSAMA GEEKO/TENCENT” to support the payment of RM1,167,900.00.  The Head of Internal Audit, Puan Salinda binti Sany, picked up this glaring transaction during the audit exercise and questioned it. However, there was no further action. The issue just died down.  WHY?

Puan Salinda did prepare an audit report on this matter. Where is the audit report now?

Now we know why Musa, the newly appointed DG of TM, was and is a genius in “planning” and more importantly drawing up the “fool proof” proposal.

There must be an in-depth investigation into this so-called  proposal for “Promosi Bersama” and the “Kajian”, which cost TM RM1,167,900.00, by MACC.

KSN should examine what Datuk Musa had done or his role in the “Speedy Gonzales” deal when his DG post is up for confirmation.

Next: Another MOTAC/TM bombshell.

Please Stay Tuned.

 

 

 

Prosecute Directors of UKSB!

YB Tan Sri Muhyiddin Hj Yassin, Minister of Home Affairs

We support the Minister of Home Affairs, YB Tan Sri Muhyiddin Hj Mohd Yassin, for taking serious actions on the activities of the scandalous visa processing company, Ultra Kirana Sdn Bhd (UKSB). Yours truly had been asking the government for actions against these visa processing companies for sometimes, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE.

This visa processing business was finally blown wide upon by the article “Acaman Besar Negara” by Harian Metro on 15-11-2018. Thank you Harian Metro for highlighting this scam as reported.

 

KENYATAAN AKHBAR

YB TAN SRI DATO’ HJ MUHYIDDIN HJ MOHD YASSIN

MENTERI DALAM NEGERI

Kementerian Dalam Negeri (KDN) memandang serius pendedahan oleh akhbar Harian Metro mengenai dakwaan kelemahan sistem Visa Luar Negara (VLN) atas talian termasuk eNTRI dan eVISA untuk pelancong dari negara China dan India yang ingin memasuki Malaysia.

Pelaksanaan sistem eNTRI yang dikendalikan oleh syarikat Ultra Kirana Sdn Bhd (UKSB) melalui satu perjanjian konsesi dengan KDN sejak tahun 2016 dikatakan gagal berperanan sebagai sistem saringan dan tapisan awal ke atas warga China yang memasuki negara ini.

Sejak memulakan tugas sebagai Menteri Dalam Negeri, saya telah mengarahkan pihak pengurusan KDN untuk mengkaji semula perjanjian-perjanjian konsesi dengan vendor-vendor yang mengendalikan pelbagai sistem imigresen termasuk sistem VLN. Tujuan kajian semula ini ialah untuk memastikan kepentingan kerajaan dan keselamatan negara tidak terjejas oleh sebarang bentuk kelemahan yang berkemungkinan wujud di dalam perjanjian mahupun pelaksanaan sistem.

Pihak KDN juga akan mengemukakan cadangan kepada kabinet untuk menaiktaraf sistem imigresen sedia ada sebelum membangunkan satu sistem baharu yang lebih efisien untuk memastikan perkhidmatan yang disediakan adalah lebih cekap, selamat dan menjimatkan kos.

Pada masa ini, pihak Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) sedang menyiasat pelbagai dakwaan penyelewengan yang melibatkan beberapa syarikat konsesi yang mendapat hak untuk mengendalikan sistem imigresen. Pihak KDN memberikan kerjasama sepenuhnya kepada SPRM dalam menjalankan siasatan.

KDN tidak akan teragak-agak untuk mengambil tindakan tegas terhadap mana-mana pihak jika terdapat bukti mengenai kelemahan atau penyelewengan di dalam pelaksanaan sistem ini.

TAN SRI DATO’ HJ MUHYIDDIN HJ MOHD YASSIN

The above statement concern Ultra Kirana Sdn Bhd (UKSB), which runs the biggest visa processing operations in China, India, Bangladesh, Philipine, Dubai and others.  UKSB’s daily collection is in the region of RM500,000 to RM700,000.

 

S5 Systems Sdn Bhd

 

Left: Tan Sri Mohamed Al Amin. Right: Dato Siew Ka Wei. These are the two powerful corporate figures. Both are business partners and in ANcom Bhd.

The KDN should also be investigating into another visa processing company, S5 Systems Sdn Bhd.  Tan Sri Al Amin is the main player behind this company.  Up to May 9th, 2018 (14th GE), Tan Sri Al Amin, who is a close buddy and business partner of Dato’ Siew Ka Wei, was politically well connected up to PMO. Many of Tan Sri Al Amin and Dato’ Siew Ka Wei’s outfits have been awarded with exclusive long terms contracts. Their outfits are Meru Utama Sdn Bhd (exclusive contract for advertising space in KLIA and others for 7 years plus 3 years), Titanium Compass Sdn Bhd (exclusive contract for advertising space in MRT and stations for 10 years), Ancom Kimia Sdn Bhd (methanol exclusive contract with Petronas Chemical) and others.

Dato’ Siew Ka Wei and Tan Sri Serigar, the former Ketua Pengarah MOF were known to have actively campaigned for BN candidate against our PM YAB Tun Dr Mahathir in Langkawi Constituency during the GE14th.

When Dato’ Siew Ka Wei was the Chairman of Tourism Malaysia (TM), TM was involved in the scandalous RM 99.693 millions Speedy Gonzales  Geeko contract.  Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd‘s CEO is Ms Elizabeth Ken, who is a media specialist of Redberry Media Group. It was by co-incidence that  Redberry Media Group is also one of the outfits of Dato’ Siew Ka Wei!I   In June 2018, a report had been lodged with MACC.  We are waiting for actions from MACC on this simple and obvious case.

We hope that the Home MInister will take the necessary actions to terminate the so-called visa processing contracts with UKSB, S5 Systems Sdn Bhd and Profound Radiance Sdn Bhd. Tourists arrivals from China have dropped tremendously because the tourists were charged with exorbitant visa processing fees. We don’t need visa processing companies. Jabatan Imigresen Malaysia could carry out the visa processing task easily. We don’t need an artificial “toll” set up for the benefits of certain powerful personalities.

 

Stay tune.

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.

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.
