Now Everyone Can Take Governor of BNM For A Good Ride! (The Joker & Player, Nazir!)

Updates @ 3:30 pm on 29.4.2022: Breaking News: Alhamdulilah! First and foremost, 3 “gaji buta” senior officers under the watch of that shameless Syed Zaid Albar of SC have tendered their resignation today! What a relief. Lets hope that after the departure of that shameless on 31.5.2022, SC will prosecute the 2 criminals known as executives 1 & 2 of PN17 AirAsia who have received RM200 million form Airbus!

Secondly, the Governor of Bank Negara Malaysia did not allow herself and/or BNM to be led by the nose by that idiot in MoF and/or so-called Tingkat 4 advisor in BNM to approve the Digital Banking Licence to his friend’s companies. BigPay of PN17 AirAsia / Capital and the other original 4 that were already earmarked by that idiot in MoF to be awarded the said licence were knocked out of the race after extra time!

Thanks God that unlike SC and MoF, we still have God fearing officers in BNM. Selamat berbuka puasa to all Muslims!

Updates @ 4:20 pm on 28.4.2022: Breaking News: The shameless Syed Zaid Albar had finally resigned as SC Chairman prematurely! He resigned just 6 months after the 3 years extension granted by that good for nothing unelected Senator Zafrul! Until the date of his resignation (today) he had not announced the result of the SC investigations against the 2 criminals known as executives 1 & 2 of PN17 AirAsia / Capital A Bhd.

In 2012 Awang Adek & Tony Fernandes were promoting a product of AirAsia’s outfit!

Since there is no more qualified person in the whole of Malaysia, YB Senator Awang Adek, the former Deputy Finance Minister (2), has been appointed in lightning speed as the new chairman of SC by none other than the un-elected Senator Zafrul. Another Tingkat 4 gang! For full press report read HERE.

Background Of The So-called Consortium Of The BigPay With The Joker Nazir Razak’s Connection

Reuters report on 1 July 2021

According to the above Reuters report and AsiaMoney, BigPay has partnered with MIDF and a Singapore- based equity firm Ikhlas Capita Nazir Razak featured very prominently in Ikhlas Capital. He is the founding partner and chairman of Ikhlas Capital.  He was also the former chairman / CEO of CIMB and involved in several “events” which will be discussed later in this article.

By sheer chance, soon after PH government came to power after GE14, this joker and “player” abruptly resigned as chairman of CIMB and disappeared to London.  Wonder why? Tengku Zafrul, the un-elected Minister of Finance, took over as the chairman / CEO post from him. 

When PH government collapsed in end February 2020, this joker/player Nazir suddenly reappeared in Malaysia corporate scene and has been flying very high! Wonder why too?  Did the unelected Zafrul give him a leg up? Was it a case of “Abang Adik” (“elder & younger brothers”)?      

On 22 January 2022, Tony Fernandes was upbeat and bragged to NikkeiAsia that AirAsia will return to profitability in 2023. He also said: 

All digital businesses except BigPay and incubator businesses will be profitable by 2023. BigPay will be profitable in 2024.” “BigPay e-wallet is majority-owned by Capital A, which is currently bidding for a digital banking licence from Central Bank (BNM) as part of the consortium with South Korea’s SK Group, which has invested 100 million ringgit in the company.” For the full NikkeiAsia report, read HERE.

Nazir Razak & His “Syok Sendiri” “Better Malaysia Assembly – To Fool the Rakyat?

Tony Fernandes’ Instagram posting showing the joker & player Nazir & Tony Fernandes enjoying together! “Swim or sink together”? Tony is wanted to answer money laundering and criminals misconduct charges in India!

On 25.11.2021 this joker Nazir Razak wanted to set up the so-called “Better Malaysia Assembly” comprising of the so-called 55 eminent persons of which includes his good buddies Tony Fernandes (the supremo of PN17 AirAsia), Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar (the former MD of Khazanah and now recently appointed as chairman of Tabung Haji) and himself representing Ikhlas Capital.   Ikhlas Capital is a partner of BigPay which is one of the prominent contenders for Digital Banking Licence.  

This joker cum player saw it fit to drag the Agung, who is believed to his friend, into his daydream “Better Malaysia Assembly” by seeking His Royal Highness’ consent / endorsement for his nonsensical pet project, HERE.   What a joke! After a lapse of 6 months we are still waiting for the Better Malaysia Assembly!   We are sure that the Agung will not so easily fooled by the daydream of this pseudo politician cum businessman and joker Nazir, who has no clue of good governance or transparency!   For heaven’s sake, this Nazir should not drag the Agung into his nonsense!   

It is strange that everything seemed to happen by chance! With the revelation, he should now consider whether he is a fit and proper person to head Bank Pembangunan whose owners are the Rakyat!  If not his good buddy that un-elected Zafrul and/or BNM should sack him as chairman of Bank Pembangunan and stop him for heading any financial institutions. 

If this joker Nazir has a little bit of self-respect / “MARUAH” and conscience, he wouldn’t have done the above and below which were contrary to good governance and transparency.  

Nazir Razak, Tengku Zafrul & The Supremo Tony Friendship Went Back Many Years

Just to digress a little from the topic but still relevant to see the connections of the joker and player Nazir.  It is an open secret that three stooges namely un-elected Zafrul, Nazir and Tony Fernandes are good buddies as we could see from their historical connections.  

It was by chance that many years ago Tengku Zafrul was the CEO of Tune Money, which is an outfit of AirAsia Group.  Tony Fernandes is the supremo of PN17 AirAsia. This joker Nazir was at one time the CEO of CIMB. It is believed that one of the big borrowers if not the biggest borrower of CIMB is none other than AirAsia Group. 

Bank Pembangunan Acquired 100% Of Danajamin

It was by chance that in April 2021 joker Nazir Razak was appointed to head Bank Pembangunan Malaysia, which is a wholly owned by Malaysia government via Minister of Finance Inc. In simple term, the ultimate owner is the Rakyat. Danajamin offers “credit enhancement product for financing facilities“. In September 2021, under Nazir Razak’s watch, Bank Pembangunan acquired 100% of Danajamin Nasional Bhd from Credit Guarantee Corp malaysiaBhd (CGC), HERE

Appointment Of Joker Nazir

It seems that there are no other Malaysians more qualified than joker Nazir! It looks like a case of “Abang Adik / Adik Kakak” or “You scratch my back and I scratch yours”! This joker has a hand in many pies! 

When the joker was the CEO of CIMB, he was instrumental in stitching up the scandalous “MAS-AirAsia Shares Swap”HERE. Beside Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar, the then MD of Khazanah and now the Chairman of Tabung Haji, Nazir was one of the architects of the said “Share Swap”!  

Danajamin Approved RM500 million Loan Guarantee For PN17 AirAsia

In October 2021 (after 6 months of Nazir’s appointment) AirAsia Group announced that it had secured approval for a RM500 million loan guarantee under Danajamin Prihatin Guarantee Scheme.  

“This approval from the Malaysian government is a strong endorsement of AirAsia Group’s ability to recover fast and provides a welcome boost to our overall fundraising strategy as we prepare to return to the skies in all our key market,” said AirAsia executive chairman Datuk Kamaruddin Meranun.

In October 2021, AAX’s auditor, Ernst & Young had issued a statement of disclaimer and announced: 

“These events or conditions indicate the existence of material uncertainties that may cast significant doubt on the group’s and the company’s ability to continue as a going concernHERE.

Kamaruddin Meranun – A Notorious Insider Trader In Share Market

Kamarudin Meranun’s excitement was short-lived! Little did he know, on 13 January 2022, Bursa Malaysia rejected AA’s application for another extension of time to restructure its huge financial problems and classified it under PN17, HERE

Due to public outcry, suddenly it was reported in the news that the two supremos of AirAsia, Tan Sri Tony Fernandesand Datuk Kamarudin Meranun had rejected the loan guarantee because both of them REFUSED to stand as guarantors for the said RM500 million loan guarantee. From this, it is evident that both supremos have no confidence in PN17 AirAsia otherwise they would have agreed to be the guarantors. What a relief for the Rakyat! The famous TRIO, Tengku Zafrul, Tan Sri Nor Shamsiah (BNM) and Syed Zaid Albar (SC), please take note! 

Kamarudin Meranun is unscrupulous and a known notorious insider trader in the share market!  At all material times, Kamarudin and his buddy Tony Fernandes were and are the top executives of PN17 AirAsia. In 2009 both were deeply involved in the scandalous “MAS – AirAsia Share Swap” and signed all agreements pertaining to it. With the inside information, this unscrupulous Kamarudin has no corporate governance in him as a director of public listed company, he bought shares in the company and made a fortune out of it, HERE!

With his powerful connections in the corridor of power, Kamarudin was not charged by SC for insider trading of shares and he was penalized with a pittance fine of RM3.5 million, HERE.  What a double standard joke!

From 2nd left:  Kamarudin Meranun of insider trading fame, TS Azman Mopkhtar, the then MD of Khazanah & now chairman of Tabung Haji, TS Mohd Nor, the then MAS Chairman, Tony Fernandes another supremo of AirAsia, Rashdan aka Danny the founder of BinaFikir with Azman Mokhtar & the famous Nazir Razak, the joker and playerAll the “bina tak fikir” lot.

Of course, joker Nazir Razak was one of the architects for the scandalous “MAS-AirAsia Share Swap”, aka “Share SUAP”! 

The BNM Governor & Shameless Syed Zaid Albar Must Not Be Too Oblivious of Good Governance, Transparency & Integrity

With the above backdrop, it is now for the BNM governor and the SHAMELESS Syed Zaid Albar of SC to uphold good governance, transparency and integrity by not issuing Digital Banking Licence blindly just to do someone bidding at the expense of Malaysia!  There is no need to bother about that unelected Zafrul!

Please Stay Tuned – Next Change

“Budak Tingkat 4” Arę Running Amok!

Yours truly’s speech in Parliament

Updated on 23.4.2022.

Just as we thought that both Tan Sri Nor Yakcop, the then Minister in the Prime Minister Department, and Tan Sri Zarinah Anwar, the then Security Commission Chairman, had disappeared from the scene so were the “Budak Tingkat 4”, it is now transpired that there are many “Budak Tingkat 4” aka “4th Floor Boys” are back running amok in the GLCs, Security Commission, BANK NEGARA MALAYSIA and etc. It seems that there is one Tingkat 4 connected to the Minister too.

There is an unseen hand in putting in place the “Budak Tingkat 4” in the GLCs, government agencies and a Minister. This unseen hand, who had retired from politics for some years, is still very powerful and very much in play these days. He is still powerful to put in place the Budak Tingkat 4 in GLCs and several appointment in government. This retired politician is a household name in Malaysian politics 20 years. Rumour has it that he is still holding court several times a month with the Budak Tingkat 4 in an eatery in Damanasara Kim. May be planning all the appointments and doing deals!

It is an open secret that the “Budak Tingkat 4” were running very high and were then roaming the corridor of power with impunity! At that material time, even God feared them! “Tahu sama Tahu” who are the “Budak Tingkat 4” and they know it themselves.

The Famous Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar & Tan Sri Azman Yahya, The Governance Guru In BNM

Picture above: Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar and Rashdan (aka Danny) was the founder of BinaFikir Sdn Bhd, a consulting firm, which was incorporated in January 2002. Soon after it was incorporated, BinaFikir was appointed by MAS / Khazanah to restructure MAS. At that material time Tan Sri Noor Mohamed Yaakop was the then super powerful Minister of Finance 2. After the appointment of BinaFikir, in 2002 Azman / Rashdan aka Danny (co founder of BinaFikir) coined the term ”WAU” (Widespread Assets Un-Bundling). Under WAU, MAS was on a sale of strategic assets spree under the pretext of generating fund for MAS! Read HERE for details.

Thereafter in 2004, TS Azman Mokhtar was appointed as MD of Khazanah Holdings, HERE. Presumably TS Noor Yaakop was instrumental in the appointment. He held on to the post in Khazanah for far too long (2004 – 2018 – 14 years). During his reign in Khazanah there was embroiled numerous controversies.

Out of the blue, in December 2021, Azman Mokhtar has been appointed Chairman of Tabung Haji, read in HERE. Of course, there is no other more qualified person than Azman Mokhtar!!

Azman and Rashdan became the hero of the industry during the reign of Tingkat 4 / Badawi Adminjistraion.

In March 2020 TS Azman Yahya (in the above picture next the TS Azman Mokhtar) was appointed as a board member of BANK NEGARA. He was also handpicked to be the Chairman of Board of Governance in Bank Negara, a powerful position. During the Noor Yaakop and Azman Mokhtar days in Khazanah, Azman Yahya the Governance Guru was appointed to head Danaharta, which was embroiled with controversies too. Azman Yahya’s long list of appointments in government agencies and public listed companies are listed Bloomberg report in HERE. Presumably all these companies must be performing very well!

Perhaps the prerequisite of a person to be appointed to high position in BNM or other government agencies that oversee evaluation and approval for licences for licences or permits in BNM or government agencies, is one must be embroiled in controversies or some form of scandals!!

During the height of the scandalous MAS-AirAsia Share Swap (SUAP), which was the brainchild of Azman Mokhtar of Khazanah and another financial genius Nazir Razak (ex-CEO of CIMB Bank and now head of Bank Pembangunan and Danajamin), the said “GOVERNANCE GURU” Azman Yahya was appointed as a board member of MAS, HERE & HERE. Of course, the Governance Guru has no clue about aviation industry except to do … . Tau sama tau la!

The said WAU and the MAS-AirAsia Share SUAP were totally failed projects as there were hatched in a wanton manner by several Budak Tingkat or its group with certain agendas, which are best known to them. It was a case, “Bina tak Fikir” Project!

Azman Yahya is a famous man whose name surfaced every where – even in a private property disputes between Kamaluddin Abdullah and Naza. Please read in HERE.

The Woman of The World, Datuk Rohana Rozhan, the Tim Leissner’s Playmate!

It was at the same time as Azman Yahya that famous and powerful Datuk Rohana Rozhan, ex CEO of ASTRO, was also appointed to the board of MAS. It was revealed in New York Court by Tim Leissner of Goldman Sach that he was then having “Fun” with Rohana for many years and she had blackmailed him to buy her a house worth £10 million in London in exchange for not exposing him of his involvement in the 1MDB scandals, HERE. This was the professional standard of an editor of a news agency then. Lets hope that now most if not all the editors of newspapers and news portal are professional.

These “Budak Tingkat 4” and/or their cronies are very powerful and influential who were and are holding high positions in the country administration including Bank Negara Malaysia.

BANK NEGARA, The Nation Central Bank

We can only hope that the Governor of our Central Bank (Bank Negara Malaysia), Tan Sri Nor Shamsiah, will put protecting the image, integrity of BANK NEGARA and more importantly PUBLIC INTERESTS well above the desires of someone in the evaluation of which 5 companies of the 29 are really qualified to be awarded with the Digital Banking Licence and/or Buy Now Pay Later Scheme (BNPL). For the background of Digital Banking Licence please read in HERE.

It must be noted that if Digital Banking Licence /BNPL are in the wrong hand, it can only spell disaster for the financial market in Malaysia and bring untold miseries to the Rakyat!

As we all know that currently there are no rules or laws to regulate the operations of Fintech, Digital Banking Licence and/or BNPL. BANK NEGARA in a statement last week had admitted that BNM, SC and Ministry of Finance are NOW ONLY discussing about putting in place a new law called Consumer Credit Act to regulate the operations of Digital Banking Licensee and/or BNP, HERE. Can you all imagine this is happening in Malaysia! It is a case of “Closing the stable door after the horse has bolted”!

As it were there are many Rakyat have voiced out their concerns with easy approval to get loans many folds above the applicants’ salary for the BNPL Scheme. It seems it is getting out of control! Don’t tell us that BANK NEGARA Governor and her Tingkat 4 officers are oblivious to all the postings in Socmed!

Image and Integrity of BNM and Protecting Public Interests are of Utmost Importance

For the sake of our beloved Malaysia and the Rakya, we trust that the Governor Tan Sri Nor Shamsiah will strictly adhere to the stringent procedures and rules that have been put in place in BANK NEGARA and that she will not be pushed around to do someone bidding in the approval of Digital Banking Licence and/or BNPL licence or permit.

We also trust that BNM under the watch of Tan Sri Nor Shamsiah will not reduce itself to that of Security Commission under the watch of shameless Datuk Syed Zaid Albar, HERE. Don’t be one of the many “BINA tak FIKIR” gang!

We can only hope that Governor of BNM and others in BNM will be mindful of the unseen hand and the manipulations of “Budak Tingkat 4” and gang. Please be mindful that the Rakyat are watching closely in what BNM is or will be doing on the Digital Banking Licence and/or BNPL.

Stay Tuned.

Now Everyone Can Bribe Directors of AirAsia & AirAsia X!

On 31 January 2020 the Learned UK Crown Court Judge, Dame Victoria Sharp P, delivered a damning Judgement / Verdict in a case between the Director of Serious Fraud Office of UK and Airbus SE for giving bribes to directors and employees of AirAsia and AirAsia X of Malaysia and others.

In her judgment, Dame Victoria Sharp said: The seriousness of the criminality in this case hardly needs to be spelled out. As is acknowledged on all sides, it was grave.”  “The number of countries subject to intense criminal investigation by the various agencies, and the scale and scope of the wrongdoing disclosed in the Statement of Facts demonstrate that bribery was to the extent indicated, endemic in two core business areas within Airbus,” she added

The said judgment arose from an application asking the UK Crown Court for approval to defer prosecution agreement reached between the UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and Airbus SE. In the said Judgement Airbus has to pay Euro 990,963,713 into the Consolidated Fund through SFO.  Yours truly has incorporated below the full writtenJudgment for those who would want to read it.

Backgrounds – AirAsia / Tony Fernandes Was On Shopping Spree

Captain Loke, our shameless Malaysia Minister of Transport, was seen in public together with his buddy Tan Sri Tony Ferndandes recently. They must be discussing about how the outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus in Wuhan!

On 23 June 2011 the buddy of our Minister of Transport, Anthony Loke aka “Captain Anthony Loke”, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes of AirAsia proudly announced AirAsia purchased 200 A320 neo aircraft from Airbus, this was a record deal in history, HERE.  Of course,  AirAsia had been deferring deliveries of some of the ordered aircrafts.

On 19 July 2018 Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, the CEO of AirAsia Group, had again announced that AirAsia had purchased another 100 aircraft from Airbus so that AirAsia X could fly out from Malaysia to London and other European cities like Vienna and Prague, HERE.  In 2020 we are still waiting for AirAsia X to fly to London, Vienna and Prague but no sign at all.

According to the above press reports, within 3 years AirAsia had bought a total 300 aircraft from Airbus.  According to the said Grounds of Judgment AirAsia had bought 406 aircraft!

No other airlines in the world could match AirAsia when purchasing aircraft is concerned.  AirAsia X has been making losses and yet it was able to buy new aircraft. Malaysia boleh!

Count No: 1 of The Charges Against Airbus & Connected To Directors/Staffs of AirAsia & AirAsia X

Airbus had admitted to many counts of payments of bribe to directors of companies and government official. Each of the counts on the Indictment concerns similar conduct, the detail of which can be found in the Statement of Facts.  In brief, persons associated with Airbus, not exclusively its employees, offered very substantial sums of money by way of bribes to third parties in order to secure the purchase of aircraft, by civil airline companies, in counts 1 to 4; and by the Government of Ghana, in count 5.

Malaysia is of course top of the list of charges. The two directors and staffs of AirAsia and AirAsia X have made us famous overnight!  We should be proud of the said two directors AirAsia and AirAsia X, who have been identified as AirAsia executives 1 and 2!

In Paragraphs 39 and 40 of the said Judgement, the Learned Judge had stated the following:

Count 1:     Malaysia

Paragraph 39 of the Grounds of Judgment

The first count alleges that contrary to section 7 of the Bribery Act 2010, between 1 July 2011 and 1 June 2015, Airbus SE failed to prevent persons associated with Airbus SE from bribing others concerned with the purchase of aircraft by AirAsia and AirAsia X airlines from Airbus, namely directors and/or employees of AirAsia airlines where the said bribery was intended to obtain or retain business or advantage in the conduct of business for Airbus SE.

Para 40

Para 40 AirAsia and AirAsia X are two major airlines in Southeast Asia, headquartered in Malaysia and were significant customers of Airbus at the time of the offences. Between October 2005 and November 2014, AirAsia and AirAsia X ordered 406 aircraft from Airbus, including 180 aircraft secured during the indictment period by way of improper payment (made by EADS France SAS, later Airbus Group SAS), and the offer of a further improper payment. The improper payment consisted of $50 million (and Airbus employees also offered but did not pay an additional $55 Million) paid to directors and/or employees of AirAsia and AirAsia X airlines as sponsorship for a sports team. The sports team was jointly owned by AirAsia Executive 1 and AirAsia Executive 2 but was legally unrelated to AirAsia and AirAsia X. The additional improper payment was prevented by the October 2014 freeze on payments to BPs described at para 29 above.”

Historical Facts On The Two Top Brass of AirAsia:  Tony Fernandes & Kamarudin Meranun

1.   Tony Fernandes Was Probed By Indian Authorities On Allegations of Bribery To Obtain Flying Licence

Left to Right:  Datuk Kamruddin Meranun, Captain Loke the Minister of Transport and good buddy of Tony Fernandes and Tan Sri Tony Fernandes

On 29 May 2018 it has been reported by Reuters that Indian police said they have filed a case against AirAsia group Bhd, the airlines C EO Tony Fernandes  and its domestic entity ion India over allegations of corruption and breaking rules in obtaining a flying licence. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) accused the airline, some of its employees and third parties of violating India’s foreign direct investment rules while obtaining the license, and of bribing government officials in an attempt to get regulations relaxed to allow AirAsia India to fly international routes.

In its complaint, the CBI said the airline, Tony Fernandes and others “chose to beat the legal frameworks and policies of the aviation sector of India” and lobbied government officials “to secure mandatory approvals, some of them through non-transparent means”.  Please read HERE.

On 16 January 2020. it has been reported in  Business Today of India that AirAsia Group Bhd’s Tony Fernandes has been summoned by Enforcement Directorate (ED) In India for questioning regarding irregularities of funds and even criminal misconduct by AirAsia when it was lobbying for its operational licences in India, HERE.

It is not known whether to date Tony Fernandes the Group CEO of AirAsia had submitted himself for the said investigation.

2.   Datuk Kamarudin Meranun Was Involved In Insider Trading  During MAS-AirAsia Share “SUAP”

Datuk Kamarudin Meranun proudly showing his  MAS credential during the infamous MAS-AirAsia shares “SUAP”.

In 2011 Datuk Kamarudin Meranun was believed to have made some huge trading profits out of the proposed “MAS-AirAsia share SUAP” deal between the substantial shareholders of then MAS and AirAsia Group Bhd. It was an insider trading, HERE.

As a result of the finding of the said insider trading by  the Security Commission, Datuk Kamarudin Meranun, the Executive Chairman of AirAsia Group, had to enter into a settlement with the Security Commission and paid RM3.64 million for acquiring 5.66 million MAS shares between 1-5 August 2011, HERE.

The said share “SUAP” was engineered by the morons in Khazanah under the former MD of Khazanah, Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar, and it was announced on  7 August 2011,HERE.

In September 2019, the morons in Khazanah were up to their old tricks this time it was trying to merge MAS with the ailing AirAsia X, which had been making huge losses for some years, HERE.

Recently we have also heard that the morons in Khazanah were trying to again “handover” MAS on a silver platter to AIrAsia. Thank God that there was immense public pressures against the said disposal and it has gone quiet at least for now.  Knowing the backgrounds of the said morons in Khazanah they will strike again. We must closely watch them.

Who Are the AirAsia Executives 1 & 2?

AirAsia changed the livery on its aircraft to BN’s GE 14th Campaign slogan, “Hebatkan Negaraku”. Left:  Datuk Kamarudin Meranun (in white shirt), (the non-independent Executive Chairman of AirAsia Group). Centre: Najib. Extreme right: Tony Fernandes (in black shirt)(the Group CEO of AirAsia).  Please guess who were the AirAsia Executives 1 or 2.

Who were the AirAsia Executive 1 and AirAsia Executive 2 ?  Yours truly believes that all of you know who they were!  It is an open secret. If by chance you do not know, please make a guess and you will no doubt hit the bull eye.

Over To Puan Latheefa Koya  / MACC / SPRM

The arrest and detention of Dato’ Dr Siew Ka Wei (Ancom Bhd executive chairman) and Elizabeth Ken, the CEO of Geeko Tech Sdn Bhd and media specialist of Redberry Media Group, which is another outfit of Siew ka Wei. Redberry is connected to Ancom Bhd.

MACC/SPRM should be interested to examine thoroughly the Grounds of Judgment and take the necessary actions. Thereafter, SPRM / MACC can always NFA (No further Action) it after a few months like what it had done on several high profile cases. Rumour has it that the scandalous ‘Speedy Gonzales” Geeko RM100 million deal involving Dato’ Siew Ka Wei, who is the executive chairman of Ancom Bhd, and Elizabeth Ken, the Redberry Media Specialist, had been classified as “NFA” (No Further Action). Please read HERE.

$50 million Paid To the Directors Of AirAsia As “sponsorship” Of the Sport Team, Which Was Jointly Owned By the Executive 1 & 2 But Legally Unrelated To AirAsia & AirAsia X!

Count No: 1 at para 40 of the Grounds of Judgment

… The improper payment consisted of $50 million (and Airbus employees also offered but did not pay an additional $55 Million) paid to directors and/or employees of AirAsia and AirAsia X airlines as sponsorship for a sports team. The sports team was jointly owned by AirAsia Executive 1 and AirAsia Executive 2 but was legally unrelated to AirAsia and AirAsia X. The additional improper payment was prevented by the October 2014 freeze on payments to BPs described at para 29 above.

Was the “Sport Team” referred to in part of Count 1 above  was the Caterham F1 Team?  If it is.  According to Wikipedia: The Caterham F1 was a Malaysian, later British owned Formula One team based in the UK. which raced under a Malaysian licence.  The Caterham brand competed in the Formula One World Championship in. 2012 – 2014, following the acquisition of British sport car manufacturer Caterham Cars by former owner and team principal  Tony Fernandes, forming the Caterham Group, HERE.

During the happy time in Caterham

Tony Fernandes Sold Caterham To A Swiss Group

In October 2014 Tony Fernandes announced then the sale of Caterham. Please see the Guardian report entitled “F1 team Caterham threaten former owner Tony Fernandes with legal action“.  According to the UK Guardian Newspapers report, Tony Fernandes spent £250 million on the organisation and then sold it. Please also read Paul Tan’s posting, HERE.

Lets wait for the Airbus scandal to unfold a little bit more then we will get a clearer picture on the scandal.  For now we hope that the AirAsia Executive 1 or 2 will come out to clarify what had been stated in the said Grounds of Judgment.

Over to Security Commission & Bursas KL (KLSE)

The $50 million (equivalent RM204 million) bribe paid by Airbus to the AirAsia Executives 1 and 2 should be treated as income for airAsia and AirAsia X.  However, according to paragraph  39 of the said Grounds of Judgment the RM205 million was paid under the scheme of “sponsorship” to  a sport team which was unrelated to AirAsia or AirAsia X. In short the RM205 million was paid to the personal company of AirAsia executives 1 and 2.

No doubt this RM204 million that was received from Airbus was not reported in the respective Annual Accounts of AirAsia Bhd and AirAsia X Bhd. If the RM204 million was reported it would have changed the respective Annual Accounts of AirAsia X drastically.

In the best interest of the investing public, the Security Commission (Suruhanjaya Sekuriti) and Bursa KL are duty bound to launch an immediate investigation into the receipt of the said bribe of RM204 million by AirAsia executives 1 and 2.

The Full Grounds of Judgment / Verdict Of UK Crown Court 

If you don’t want to read the whole judgment, please proceed to paragraphs 39 – 40 at page 10 – 11 for the payments made to the directors and employees of AirAsia and AirAsia X.

The Shares “SUAP” & RM10 Million Fine!

After signing the infamous MAS-AirAsia share swap on 9-8-2011.  The “Happy Family”.  From left: Datuk Kamarudin Meranun of AirAsia, Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar, MD of Khazanah, Tan Sri Md Nor Yusuf, chairman of MAS, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes of AirAsia, En Mohamed Rashdan and Datuk Seri Nazir Razak, the CEO of CIMB.

Today the learned High Court Judge, YA Tuan Nordin Hassan had set aside the decision of the Competition Appeal Tribunal in 2016 that MAS and AirAsia did not need to pay the fine as they did not infringe the Competition Act.  The learned Judge has reinstated a decision by the Malaysia Competition Commission (MyCC) that fined AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines System Berhad RM10 million each for breaching a market-sharing prohibition. For detail of the report please read HERE.

Amok & Mohammed Rashdan Yusof were the architects of the share “SUAP”?

Actually the then directors of MAS and the Khazanah’s whiz kids should be held responsible for the fine of RM10 million because they were instrumental in the “SHARE SUAP”, HERE.

Yours truly salute the CEO of MyCC CEO, Tuan Iskandar Ismail, for pursuing this matter in the public interests.

The Background

In 2011 the MAS-AirAsia Share Swap was hatched in secret by the whiz kids Khazanah.  The Share Swap was popularly known as the infamous “Share SUAP”.  In 2011 yours truly was the MP for Wangsa Maju and  had been calling for Khazanah to reveal the full details of the said “Share SUAP”.  Of course, Khazanah under the leadership of Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar did not provide details of the “Share SUAP” except hiding behind the CON-sultant term, “Collaborative Framework”.

There was no public discussion about the “Share SUAP”.  The Share SUAP agreement was suddenly signed on 9th August 2011.

MAS union and many parties are against the “Share SUAP” but Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar and the Khazanah’s whiz kid, Tuan Mohamed Rashdan (aka Danny), were adamant to see the “Share SUAP” through.

The Immediate Results of The Share “SUAP”

After signing of the Share “SUAP” agreement, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes and Datuk Kamaruddin Merandum were appointed to the Board of MAS, many Firefly and MAS routes were stopped with short notice with no good reasons and etc. En Mohamed Rashdan (Danny), the Khazanah’s whiz kid and “Bina Tak Fikir” boy, rushed to London to sponsor QPR football team!

In October 2011, the then Deputy Minister of Finance, YB Datuk Awang Adek told Parliament during Questions Time that the MAS – AirAsia Share “SUAP” was a “KERJASAMA” between MAS and AirAsia. What a joke! Please read HERE.

For more than 8 months, yours truly had been advocating in Parliament for the termination of the share “SUAP” because the said share “SUAP” was not only ill thought out, but not done in the best interest of the nation and our national icon, MAS.  Finally, the then PM, Dato Seri Najib Razak, gave in to the demand and reverse the share “SUAP” but the damaged was only done.

To help Mr Mueller’s Grand Scheme to “Collaborate with AirAsia – Part 2

The babies are also collaborating!
The little napoleons in Khazanah love COLLABORATION/CCF so are the babies!

 

In PART 1 we stopped at the sorry state of Rural Air Service (RAS) and Fly Asian Express Sdn Bhd (now AirAsia X) where six aircraft were grounded due to un-airworthiness and another one was cannibalised for spare parts, and how MAS was left to pickup the pieces thereafter.
