PADU’s RM62 mil – Now You See, Now You Don’t!

 

En Mohamad Azhan Bin Md. Amir a.k.a. the brainless Hebat One”, TKSU (Pengurusan) of MOE.

Updates at 1:30 pm on 20-11-2019:  The “brainless Hebat One” has been true to form. On 11-11-2019 he chaired the JK Pemandu to discuss the MOE’s damning chief accountant report, which had stated that the PADU’s account was grossly overstated by more than RM62 million, and decided that JK Siasatan MOE to investigate on the PADU’s creative accounting.  The “brainless Hebat One” being brainless chose to avoid taking positive actions to protect the interest of the rakyat by lodging report with the police, MACC and/or Ketua Audit Negara. He is just playing for time in the hope that all the wrong doings in PADU will be swept under the carpet later.  With so many adverse findings on PADU’s accounts, the brainless is playing dumb by calling for meetings after meetings and investigations after investigations.  It would appear that the brainless was on a covering up spree. The brainless must take responsibility for this scandalous RM340 million failed tablet project as it is under the control of JK Pemandu of which he is the Chairman. 

 

Rumour was flying around in the Ministry of Education (MOE) that PADU Corporation (PADU) is a colossal can of worms.  It has now transpired that the Chief Accountant of MOE’s Account Department has recently informed Encik Mohammad Azhan Bin Md Amir a.k.a.the  “brainless Hebat One”, the Timbalan Ketua Setiausaha (Pengurusan) of MOE that the Account Department of MOE has been instructed to provide a report on 16 September 2019, it was unable to do so because insufficient supporting documents and information from PADU.

PADU’s Accounts Overstated By More Than RM62 million!

Tuan Hj Nasran Bin Omar C.A. (M), the Chief Accountant of MOE, had discovered that the PADU’s account was OVERSTATED (“TERLEBIH NYATA”) by RM62,386,834.77!.  What a fantastic creative accounting in PADU.  It must be due to the genius in PADU at work that out of nowhere PADU has a balance of more than RM62 million on paper.  Rumour has it that on or about 18 October 2019 the said Chief Accountant of MOE has given his recommendation that a detail forensic audit of PADU should be done by MOE’s Account Department or Jabatan Audit Negara in order to get to the bottom of the serious discrepancies.

Yours truly suggests that the authority or Jabatan Ketua Audit Negara should also do a full forensic audit on PADU’s 2016 – 2018 Audited Accounts because there were too many creative accountings performed during the height of the scandalous tablet project worth RM340 millions of Rakyat money.

The infamous “Creative’ Financial Officer of PADU, En Ahmad Izzat Bin Ahmad Zaki. One of the main players in facilitating all the payments to the special purpose bank account known “Utusan Epiweb Collection Account” for the scandalous RM340 million tablet project

Only in PADU and/or MOE that its account has an overstated balance of more than RM62 million, due to the special talent of PADU’s Chief Financial Officer, En Ahmad Izzat Bin Ahmad Zaki and his deputy.

Now that “the brainless Hebat One” had been formally informed about the creative accountings of PADU and the financial scandal in PADU/MOE on the failed tablet project worth RM340 million, he is duty bound to lodge a formal report with the police, MACC and the Ketua Audit Negara.  Being brainless the Hebat One, it will not put pass him that he will chair more meetings with no solution to the creative accounting in PADU in order to hide his incompetence.

JK Pemandu Of MOE To Meet Again On 11 November 2019 – For Fun?

Let’s see after the scheduled JK Pemandu meeting on 11 November 2019, whether the “brainless Hebat One” will think like a responsible civil servant and opt to do the right thing for a change by lodging a report with the police and/or MACC and/or Ketua Audit Negara pertaining to all the wrong doings including the creative accountings in PADU/MOE or conduct business as usual or to lodge another report concerning the leakage on “the now established fact” ( Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6,Part 7, Part 8 and Part 9) of the findings of the said Chief Accountant of MOE about the OVERSTATED (“TERLEBIH NYATA”) of more than RM62 million in PADU’s accounts.  Most probably the “brainless Hebat One” will fix many more JK Pemandu/”Shiok Sendiri” meetings with no solution.

Knowing the mentality of the “brainless Hebat One” he will do thoughtless things like lodging another report on the leakage of the rumour about the PADU’s account being overstated by more than RM62 million in his miserable attempt to cover up all the financial scandals involving the failed tablet project worth RM340 million.

Malaysia Baru

In Malaysia BARU the mantra of the civil servants should be to help the new administration to use the American metaphor to drain-the-swamp and create an eco-system unfriendly to corruption, abuse of power, mismanagement and rent seeking. Business cannot be as usual, whistle blowing and a free press and all it encompasses should be protected even celebrated not criminalised to hide wrong doings and snafus in the advancement of the truth and the common good.

Now We Need A Civil Service Act

The Ketua Setiausaha Negara (KSN) should take note in the appointments of KSUs and TKSUs and make sure that the Ketua Pengarah Perkhidmatan Awam (KPPA) and the new Pengarah INTAN (Institut Tadbiran Awam Negara) gets the message and in turn creates a better training process for senior civil servants lest they turn out like the “brainless Hebat One” who deserved to be immediately pooled. It is time for Parliament to enact the Civil Service Act to ensure accountability and transparency in how the civil service works. There is the Education Act 1996, Police Act 1967, Armed Forces Act 1972 but no Civil Service Act. Unbridled power will only lead the spiral back of the bad old days.

Supremely Feckless & Brainless MOE Officer!

 

En Mohamad Azhan Bin Md Amir, TKSU (Pengurusan) of Ministry of Education. He is also known as the “Brainless Hebat One”

Here’s a case of a public servant so insulated by power and privilege in high office that he ridiculously delves into a state of stupidity.

The Deputy Secretary General (Administration) of the Ministry of Education (MOE), En Mohamad Azhan bin Md Amir a.k.a ‘Brainless Hebat One’, has chosen to lodge a police report against yours truly instead of tracking the perpetrators involved in the failed RM340 million computer tablet project for teachers nationwide.

He saw it fit to make the police report against yours truly on 26 September 2019 for disclosing information/minutes of JK Pemandu of an MOE meeting on 18 July 2019.

Information gleaned from the minutes was integral to “MCMC Fund Looted – Shady ‘Speedy Gonzales’ Deal Resurfaces – Part 10 (PADU Spent Without Authority)”.

PADU, a company incorporated by guarantee under the purview of MOE, was tasked with managing the supply of 430,000 computer tablets with pre-installed Tutor Guru app and Utusan Malaysia e-paper to teachers by June 2018. It is a case of “Harapkan pagar, pagar makan padi!”.

The funds were granted by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to PADU during the Najib’s Administration.

On 10 October 2019, Inspector Hasbullah of Putrajaya police recorded a statement from yours truly over the posting of my 10th article, HERE.  The minutes of meeting in question was in this article.

For the back ground of this huge scandal, please read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8 and Part 9.

Yours truly was informed the matter is being investigated because of the so-called confidential information and documents in connection with the scandalous RM340 million tablet project were posted in this blog.

It appears the police are more interested in wanting to know who supplied yours truly the minutes of the meeting and other information about the wrong doings in PADU/MOE and not the wrong doings itself.

Yours truly spent one hour to give a statement and told the Inspector that certain documents including the JK Pemandu minutes were sent to my law office by an unknown person several months ago.

Yours truly told the officer that I decided to publish the 10 articles pertaining the scandal after weeks of document verification.

Was the ‘Brainless Hebat One’ in a state of “kera kena sambal belacan” that forced him to scare yours truly with police action?

Only the brainless would think of such a stupid tactic of lodging a police report to cover up the appalling wrong doings with regards to the RM340 million failed tablet project in PADU and MOE.

In the minutes in question, the ‘Brainless Hebat One’ had openly proclaimed that “urus setia mendapati setiap laporan tersebut yang dikemukakan sama ada tidak konsisten, mempunyai ralat dan perincian item yang tidak dapat ditentukan punca kuasanya.”  Why up to this date there is no report lodged by MOE to the police and MACC?

During the JK Pemandu meeting of 18-9-2019, the ‘Brainless Hebat One’ knew very well that PADU is full of financial scandal and a national wastage, but that more importantly a big can of worms had to be opened to save public funds.

The ‘Brainless Hebat One’ chaired several JK Pemandu meetings, expressing reservations after reservations about the wrong doings in PADU.

Instead of taking positive action like lodging reports over the misdeeds with police, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and other authorities, the ‘Brainless Hebat One’ had the audacity to lodge a police report against yours truly for exposing the scandal.

Before the ‘Brainless Hebat One’ lodged the said police report, yours truly thought that the failed tablet scandal was confined to the little napoleons in PADU only.  Now it seems that several high-ranking officers in MOE were also involved. It was all about the relationship of “Abang – Adik”.

Still, after a series of 10 articles in yours truly’s blog, which was read by top officers in MOE and PADU, not a single officer in PADU or MOE has came out to refute any of the 10 articles.  They could only  played dumb or brainless.  The high ranking officers in MOE / PADU had done nothing positive to protect public interest and funds from MCMC. The only positive thing that this brainless “Hebat One” has done was to lodge a police report against yours truly for exposing the RM340 million worth of tablet scandal.

Is the ‘Brainless Hebat One’ trying to cover up the dishonesty in PADU and MOE by lodging the police report against yours truly with the predominant aim to save the culprits? I believe so.  Did the brainless “Hebat One” get the approval from the Minister to lodge the said police report?

Bring it on, ‘Brainless Hebat One’.  Yours truly is waiting for you to lodge more reports.
