Syed Zaid Albar Left SC In Disgrace – Good Riddance To BAD RUBBISH!

Shameless Syed Zaid Albar had resigned and bowed out as chairman of SC in disgrace. Thanks God that today is his last day as chairman of SC.

AirAsia Ordered 400 Aircraft From Airbus

In July 2016 it was an international news in the airlines industry that AirAsia had placed a slew of order for airbuses to the tune of a few hundred from Airbus SE. To be precise, AirAsia ordered an additional 100 Airbus from its existing orders of 300! The then CEO of Airbus, John Leahy, and Tony Fernandes of AirAsia were ebullient on the said orders, HERE. Of course, Tony Ferenandes was then the star of the big airshow in Farnborough and other parts of the world. With such big orders, Tony was the super hero and admired by many in the airline industries throughout the world.

Airbus representatives and Kamaruddin Meranun of AirAsia were on a publicity blitz over the said orders and even had a well publicised signing ceremony held in Kuala Lumpur. At the material time, Tony Fernandes and Kamaruddin Meranun, the supremos of PN17 AirAsia, were the stars which no others airline executives in the world could emulate.

At that material time, little did the world know that the slew of orders for aircraft by AirAsia was a quid pro quo whereby AirAsia’s two criminals known as executives 1 and 2 had been paid been paid more than RM200 million in bribes by Airbus. Please read the UK Crown Court Judgement in “Now Everyone Can Defraud AirAsia Shareholders”.

It is unclear that out of the 400 Airbus ordered, how many have been delivered and how many remained outstanding.

Airbus Had Admitted In The UK Crown Court To Have Paid More Than RM200 Million To Two Criminals Executives 1 & 2 of PN17 AirAsia For Aircraft Orders

In late January 2020 the UK Crown Court had adjudged that two criminals known as executives 1 and 2 of PN 17 AirAsia had received bribes of more than RM200 million from Airbus in exchange of aircraft orders. Airbus had admitted in the UK Court of having paid the said bribes to the said two criminals in PN AirAsia. Airbus was penalised with a fine of £3 billion, HERE.

This Airbus Bribery Scandals were widely publicised internationally and in Malaysia.

If the RM200 million were to be refunded as a discount to AirAsia, the said RM200 million could have been utilised by AirAsia to pay out as dividends to its shareholders. Instead the said two criminal pocketed the RM200 mil as bribes.

The two criminals executives 1 and 2 of PN17 AirAsia had acted against the interest of AirAsia and ultimately its shareholders, which was a matter of great concern to both authorities Bursa Malaysia and SC.

Bursa Malaysia Launched An Investigation Into The Airbus Bribery Scandals But Was Immediately Stopped By SC Under The Watch Of Shameless Syed Zaid Albar

In early February 2020, Bursa Malaysia was the first to announce that it had commenced investigation into the said Airbus bribery scandals and followed by MACC, HERE.

The Security Commission (SC) under the watch of that shameless Syed Zaid Albar, the chairman of Security Commission, had followed suit. However, SC had the audacity to instruct Bursa Malaysia to stop its investigations. At that material time, it appeared to be in order as SC has more powers under the law to investigate and prosecute the said two criminals. Little did we know that it was not what we thought it should be. It was just a scheme to stop Bursa from proceeding with its investigation into the said Airbus bribery scandals.

After More Than 2 Years Shameless Syed Zaid Albar Had Continiued To Play Dumb On The Investigation Of Airbus Bribery Scandals

More than two years have elapsed, there was no sign of SC investigating the said RM200 million Airbus bribery scandals. Despite many calls for this shameless Syed Zaid Albar and/or SC to announce the results of the said investigation, that shameless fella chose to play dumb, a curious habit for a person holding high office. Human decay in this shameless Syed Zaid Albar is extremely noticeable. It is a case of “Harap Pagar, Pagar Makan Padi”!

Out of the blue on 28 April 2022 this shameless Syed Zaid Albar tendered his resignation two and half years prematurely and to take effect today (31 May 2022), HERE.

What a great relief for those upright officers in SC and Malaysia! It is good riddance to bad rubbish!

Datuk Wang Adek Hussin Will Take Over As The New Executive Chairman of SC On 1 June 2022

Datuk Awang Adek will take office on 1 June 2022. Lets hope that Datuk Awang Adek has the guts to clean up SC by getting rid of the dead woods or the shameless Syed Zaid Albar’s “kuncu” / cronies for covering up the internationally known Airbus Bribery Scandals which involved the two criminals known as executives 1 and 2 of PN17 AirAsia who had been paid more than RM200 million bribes by Airbus.

MCMC Looted, Shady ‘Speedy Gonzales’ Deal Resurfaces – Part 1

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has been rocked with allegations of millions of ringgit being spirited from the “cash cow” but the outcome of the probes has not been made public.

The investigations by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) into RM25 million missing from FINAS began more than a year ago.

Now, another case similar to the dubious “Speedy Gonzales-Geeko” deal has surfaced.

2nd left: Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei & 4th left: Elizabeth Ken

The “Speedy Gonzales-Geeko” case (worth RM99.693 million) with Tourism Malaysia (TM) saw the MACC arrest and detention of Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei (Siew) and Ms Elizabeth Ken Tzu Ying (Elizabeth Ken) in early January 2019.

Siew was the former chairman of TM. He is also the current executive chairman of the public listed company called Ancom Bhd.  Ancom Bhd has many subsidiaries, one of which is Redberry Media Group (Redberry). The defunct Malay Mail is part of Redberry. Ms Elizabeth Ken is the media specialist of Redberry.  Datuk Wong Sai Wan (Wong) is the Editor-in-Chief of Malay Mail. Wong is also a director in several of Siew’s outfits.

Details of the latest scandal will be soon exposed in Part II of this MCMC saga.

Let’s recap. More than a year has elapsed, there is no news of the outcome of the audit by the National Audit Department on the MCMC Fund and the USP Fund (Universal Service Provision Fund), which were set up under the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Act, 1988,

The balance of these two Funds as at 31 December 2016 were as follows:

MCMC Fund RM800 million; and

USP Fund RM8.5 billion.

 

The press statement dated 22-6-2018 of YB Gobind Singh Deo, the Minister of Communication and Multimedia

 

On 20 June 2018, YB Gobind Singh Deo had announced that both MCMC Fund and USP Fund will be audited by the National Audit Department, HERE.

On 3 July 2018, MACC confirmed it was probing into the embezzlement of RM25 million involving 1Malaysia Negaraku projects, which failed to be implemented.

A senior officer of the National Film Development Corporation (FINAS) with a “Datuk” title is believed to be involved in the embezzlement, HERE.

It would appear that there was no outcome of this MACC probe.

Perhaps the newly-minted DG of MACC, Puan Latheefa Koya, should look into these matters and other scandals involving the MCMC Fund.

The RM25 million scandal was just the tip of the iceberg!

Prior to GE 14, the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia had encouraged or allowed the MCMC Fund to be abused to the maximum by a government agency with zero governance!

It must be noted that section 39 of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission Act, 1988, provides that the MCMC Fund shall be expanded for the purposes of lawful expenditure incurred by MCMC like paying for the remuneration, allowances and expenses of of members of MCMC, procurement of good and services  by MCMC, purchasing or hiring equipment, machinery, acquiring of land and any asset, repayment of moneys borrowed under section 43 of the Act, granting loans to its employees and etc.

A big chunk of the MCMC Fund had been utilised for purposes that have not been stipulated under section 39 of the Act.

It must be noted that section 39 of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission Act, 1988, provides that the MCMC Fund shall be expanded for the purposes of lawful expenditure incurred by MCMC like paying for the remuneration, allowances and expenses of of members of MCMC, procurement of good and services  by MCMC, purchasing or hiring equipment, machinery, acquiring of land and any asset, repayment of moneys borrowed under section 43 of the Act, granting loans to its employees and etc.

In the spirit of transparency and accountability, the National Audit Department and/or the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia to make public the findings of the audit of these two funds (MCMC Fund & USP Fund).

Is TM speeding back to the days of “Speedy Gonzales”?

After a lull in the wrong doings in Tourism Malaysia (TM), another bombshell is in the works.

The “Abang – Adik” Shows. .   Left: YB Menteri Datuk Mohammadin Bin Hj Ketapi Right: Datuk Musa Yusuf, the DG of TM

 

The newly minted DG, Datuk Musa Yusuf, who was in the centre of the Speedy Gonzales scandal, is again implicated in another controversy related to the politics within MOTAC/TM.

When Datuk MusaYusuf was first appointed the DG of TM, his appointment could not be confirmed by the TM’s Board because at that material time he was didn’t have a letter of clearance from MACC. Quite rightly so! Yours truly has been informed that within a short span of two weeks or so after his non-confirmation, Datuk Musa managed to obtain a letter of good character or clearance from MACC!  We can only  hope that Puan Latheefa Koya, the new DG of MACC, will investigate how could Datuk Musa be given a clean bill of health when he was at least appeared to have been involved in the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” RM99.693 million Geeko Deal.

Please read the next paragraph to learn about Datuk Musa’s involvement in the said scandalous deal.

For the benefits of new readers, in November 2017 Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd (Geeko) was incorporated with Koperasi Kakitanggan MOTAC (KOPEMA) as one of its shareholders.  Datuk Musa Yusuf is the President of KOPEMA!

On 19 January 2018 Datuk Musa Yusuf had cleverly devised a scheme known as “Promosi Bersama Tencent/Geeko Tech Bagi  Promosi Pemasaran Digital (Smart Tourism)” (“Promosi Bersama”),  which was actually to appoint Geeko to do a so-called “study” to appoint Geeko for the so-called ‘Digital Marketing’.  Datuk Musa’s clever scheme or the so-called “Promosi Bersama” cost TM a whopping RM1,167,900.00.  Please read Is Tourism Malaysian is Everyone ATM?“. Please also read: “Suspend Tourism Malaysia DG or Live In Shame!”

The Players in the Scandalous Speedy Gonzales Deal 

2nd left: Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei & 4th left: Ms Elizabeth Ken

You will note that on 9 January 2019 the corporate genius and the former Chairman of Tourism Malaysia, Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei, and Ms Elizabeth  Ken, the media specialist of Redberry Media Group, were arrested and detained by MACC for four days in connection with the scandalous Speedy Gonzales Geeko. Six months have elapsed and there is no sign of both of them being charged. Despite Datuk Musa, was in the centre of the scandalous Speedy Gonzales deal, he has been awarded with a clean bill of health by MACC!

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

Dato’ Dr Siew is the current Chairman of Ancom Bhd.

Despite the arrest and detention of Dato’ Siew and Ms Elizabeth Ken, the scandalous “Speedy Gonzales” RM99.693 millions has yet to be terminated. Why?

Puan Latheefa Koya should also investigate into this scandal!

Just now yours truly has received this comment from a reader:

… there is an anonymous letter circulating among the Civil Service claiming some interference involving the Motac M … members towards procurements in the Ministry. The letter also stated a pact between a group of officer aka Little Napoleons to out the current KSU incited by the … to an extent to try and put in place the ex-KSU who retired back into service. As the letter was dated 15 Jun 2019 and a visit by the Minister to KSN does suggests a certain degree of truth in the letter. …”

We can only hope that the above comment was not true.  Yg Bhg Datuk KSN please take note of the above.  We also hope that Datuk KSN will not confirm Datuk Musa Yusuf as the DG of TM.

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.

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.
