Monkeys jump easily. Especially pet monkeys. This includes the ones kept by the Tokong to pick coconuts and lice for him.
Today one such pet jumped when the MACC asked for the Pakatan and Opposition states to take an anti-corruption pledge.
In a opposition-leaning Malaysiakini report, Saifuddin who is Tokong’s adviser on God-knows-what chastised the direction in which Dzulkifli Ahmad is leading the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), questioning if he was out to become a politician or celebrity.
“What the country needs is a MACC chief who is effective and substantive, not a celebrity,” said Tokong’s pet. “People did not want public relation exercises in the form of pledges.”
Tokong’s pet was responding to MACC Chief Dzulkifli Ahmad’s push for Penang, Selangor and Kelantan to sign MACC’s anti-corruption pledge.
It also questioned that despite MACC’s apparent blitz against those involved in corruption, how many had actually been convicted.
We know he is as eager as we are to know the verdict of Tokong’s corruption case.
The Menteri Besar of Selangor Azmin Ali also brushed aside Dzulkifli’s push for the pledge to be signed.
Azmin said Selangor had its own way in dealing with integrity and corruption issues which is why Teoh Beng Hock had to be silenced and various reports on corruption against Azmin’s administration have been made by PKR.’s own members.
While Tokong’s pet was busy criticising the MACC’s effort to combat corruption, the MACC raided the FELDA Investment Corporation office and seized some documents to investigate alleged corruption activities involving the senior management of the GLC.
Nampaknya untuk mengalihkan perhatian terhadap tuduhan-tuduhan rasuah yang dilakukan oleh keraajaan Pulau Pinang pimpinan Lim Guan Eng, DAP mengkaldaikan ahli keluarga Teoh Beng Hock untuk mengajak orang ramai berdemo hari Jumaat ini (7 Julai 2017) membuat bantahan terhadap apa yang disifatkan sebagai sikap pilih kasih pihak SPRM kerana tidak membuat sebarang siasatan terhadap MO1.
Teoh Beng Hock telah ditemui mati setelah terjatuh dari pejabat SPRM Selangor yang berpusat ketika itu di Plaza Masalam di antara 3.45 pagi dan 1.30 tengahari pada 16 Julai 2009.
Teoh Beng Hock ketika itu ditahan SPRM untuk memberi keterangan mengenai kes penyelewengan peruntukan wang sebanyak RM2,400.00 yang telah dibayar oleh ADUN Seri Kembangan, Ean Yong Hian Wah yang merupakan majikan Beng Hock, untuk pembelian bendera sambutan Hari Kebangsaan tetapi tidak pernah diambil dari pembekal.
Wang tersebut juga telah disahkan BUKANNYA berasal dari 1MDB, dan jauh sekali ianya merupakan duit rakyat seperti yang digembar-gemburkan mereka yang tiada keupayaan untuk berfikir.
Kes 1MDB adalah jauh berbeza dengan kes yang melibatkan Teoh Beng Hock dan Ean Yong Hian Wah kerana kes mereka berdua benar-benar melibatkan wang rakyat dan konspirasi untuk pecah amanah. Inilah yang disiasat oleh pihak SPRM tetapi terbantut akibat kematian Beng Hock.
Jumlahnya tidaklah berbillion namun ianya melibatkan wang yang telah diamanahkan oleh rakyat tidak kiralah kecil atau besar jumlahnya. Kalau Teoh Lee Lan tidak faham apa itu amanah, jangan bertanya kepada Lim Guan Eng sebab beliau telah didakwa di mahkamah atas perlakuan rasuah.
2. SPRM TIDAK MENYIASAT WANG RM2.6 BILLION TETAPI MENAHAN TEOH BENG HOCK YANG KEMUDIANNYA MATI SEMASA DI DALAM TAHANAN MEREKA. IANYA SATU PERBUATAN YANG AMAT KEJAM
Teoh Lee Lan hanya mampu mengulangi kisah “RM2.6 billion” yang ternyata adalah wang yang telah didermakan. 1MDB telah disahkan sendiri oleh Jawatankuasa Kira-Kira Wang Negara yang keanggotaannya termasuk enam orang Ahli Parlimen dari pihak pembangkang sebagai tidak kehilangan sebarang wang.
Di antara enam orang Ahli Parlimen pembangkang yang dinyatakan di atas termasuklah juga seramai dua orang dari parti DAP, iaitu parti mendiang Teoh Beng Hock.
Dalam kes yang melibatkan mendiang Teoh Beng Hock, wang rakyat telah lesap begitu sahaja. Kononnya RM2,400 telah dibayar kepada pembekal bendera, namun tiada penghantaran bendera dilakukan.
Saya amat bersetuju bahawa perbuatan salahguna wang rakyat seperti dalam kes mendiang Teoh Beng Hock adalah suatu perbuatan yang amat kejam.
3. MENGAPA SPRM MENYIASAT SATU KES TETAPI TIDAK KES YANG LAIN? INI PERSOALAN YANG KAMI INGIN MEREKA JAWAB
Video selama 1 minit 42 saat ini sebenarnya membosankan. Jika kita lihat soalan yang ketiga ini, ianya tidak ada bezanya dengan soalan-soalan pertama dan kedua. Tetapi tidak mengapalah jika Teoh Lee Lan masih inginkan jawapannya.
Semasa Teoh Lee Lan masih bersedih, SPRM telah menyiasat dan membuat banyak tangkapan terhadap ramai orang tanpa mengira pangkat mahupun darjat.
Setakat ini ada lebih kurang 5,500 kenyataan media yang telah dikeluarkan oleh pihak SPRM mengenai aktiviti-aktiviti yang teah dijalankan oleh Suruhanjaya tersebut, termasuk kenyataan-kenyataan berhubung siasatan dan tangkapan kes-kes yang melibatkan perlakuan rasuah. Teoh Lee Lan boleh membaca kesemuanya apabila sudah hilang sedikit rasa sedih dan mata kurang kabur akibat terlalu banyak membaca skrip yang disediakan oleh pihak DAP.
Untuk mengetahui kenapa tiada tangkapan yang dibuat terhadap MO1 kerana kehilangan RM2.6 billion, saya harap Teoh Lee Lan boleh merujuk kepada jawapan saya kepada soalan pertama dan kedua.
4. AMALAN DWI-STANDARD SPRM TELAH MELEPASKAN MO1 DARIPADA PERTUDUHAN TETAPI TIDAK TEOH BENG HOCK
Sekali lagi, Teoh Lee Lan, para penyokong DAP boleh merujuk kepada jawapan saya kepada soalan-soalan satu hingga tiga di atas untuk kes RM2.6 billion. 1 MDB juga tidak kehilangan sebarang wang. Malah, Department of Justice Amerika Syarikat juga tidak menamakan MO1 sebagai orang yang terlibat disiasat oleh mereka.
Tidak ada satu pertuduhan pun yang dibacakan sama ada di Singapura mahupun tempat-tempat lain yang melibatkan konon-kononnya 1MDB ada menyebut perkataan “1MDB” dalam pertuduhan dan prosiding mahkamah mereka.
Sebagaimana Teoh Lee Lan ada persoalan, saya juga ada beberapa soalan untuk beliau:
1. TEOH BENG HOCK MATI KETIKA MEMBERI KETERANGAN MENGENAI SALAHGUNA WANG RAKYAT OLEH DAP. SIAPA YANG AKAN DITANGKAP SEKIRANYA BENG HOCK MASIH HIDUP DAN MENCERITAKAN KESEMUA MAKLUMAT YANG ADA PADA BELIAU?
2. SIAPA YANG MENERIMA MANFAAT POLITIK SEKIRANYA TEOH BENG HOCK HIDUP DAN SEMPAT MENCERITAKAN KEPADA SPRM MENGENAI MAKLUMAT-MAKLUMAT PENYELEWENGAN YANG BELIAU KETAHUI? BARISAN NASIONAL ATAU DAP?
3. SIAPA YANG MENERIMA MANFAAT SEKIRANYA TEOH BENG HOCK MATI SEBELUM SEMPAT MEMBERI MAKLUMAT MENGENAI PENYELEWENGAN WANG RAKYAT YANG DISYAKI DILAKUKAN OLEH WAKIL-WAKIL RAKYAT DAP?
Just a few minutes ago I received a copy of a press statement from the Prime Minister’s Officer stating that Idris Jala has been appointed as an indepedent party to establish the facts and recommend the way forward regarding Felda Global Ventures’s (FGV) latest fiasco.
For a statement to have come out from the Prime Minister’s Office shows that the Prime Minister himself is taking interest to protect those whose livelihood depend on FGV and wants to find out the inside story of how FGV has gotten itself in such a mess.
Isa Samad was appointed as the Chairman of FELDA and also became the Chairman of FGV. Obviously he is a political appointee meaning that he had been entrusted to ensure that the needs and interests of the voters in FELDA are well taken care of.
This did not happen. Instead of becoming something that the settlers could bank on, FELDA was treated badly under Isa’s management, or mismanagement if you must.
There was that sturgeon farm initiative that cost FELDA a loss of RM47.6 million through a subsidiary called FELDA Caviartive Sdn Bhd.
Another mess that happened under Isa was by FELDA Wellness Corp Sdn Bhd., a loss-making biopharmaceuticals company wholly owned by the statutory body, had been wound up last year.
In less than three years of operation, FELDA Wellness accumulated losses of RM154.76 million, and current liabilities of RM154.03 million as at end FY15. The company’s total assets amounted to RM4.34 million.
The company was eventually wound up by Australia-based Gordagen Pharmaceuticals Pty Ltd for debts owed to it by FELDA Wellness amounting to RM2.1 million.
Another outfit called Global Settlers Sdn Bhd (GSSB), which opened a chain of five restaurants and incurred losses of more than RM 8.4 Million, then closed down after 3 years of operations. If that is not bad enough, GSSB paid RM2.29 million to a Pastry Project called Schneeballen without having any supporting documents. In October 2015 that Pastry project was terminated after having spent another RM6.39 million for equipment.
I shan’t go into the failed investments by the FELDA Investment Corp. There’s at least half-a-billion Ringgit worth of losses by the FIC.
It was only right that the Prime Minister decided enough was enough and put Tan Sri Shahrir Samad at the helm, leaving Isa only as a non-executive Chairman of the FGV.
Although a lot of damage had been done by Isa, Shahrir’s appointment was welcomed by settlers and observers alike. Through Shahrir they see a management that would be able to surmount the obstacles Isa had laid.
But the latest fiasco of Isa using the Board of FGV to ask the CEO Zakaria Arshad and three others to go on a forced leave has again shaken the trust of the people in FGV.
I don’t know how kosher Zakaria is, but a thorough probe by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) into the affairs of the FGV is a very welcomed move.
Isa et al should realise that FGV and FELDA are of public interest and that he was entrusted by Najib Razak to make sure that the settlers’ interests are not foresaken.
Instead, Najib and the settlers have had their back stabbed.
Mr Botox is not someone whom I take seriously but sometimes it’s nice to just whack him silly.
His latest tirade is against the MACC for the latter’s press release congratulating UMNO on its 71st anniversary.
MACC’s statement is as fair as you can get in its effort to make corruption the people’s enemy.
The MACC penned its hope that UMNO would support its Gerakan Anti Rasuah (GERAH) drive to rid the nation of corruption.
Khairuddin asked why has the MACC never congratulated whistleblowers such as Rafizi Ramli, Lim Kit Siang and Tony Pua?
Why should they?
Rafizi is a known felon. Last year alone he was convicted four times by a court of law, with one more expected; Lim Kit Siang is a known instigator who has made an about turn on U-Turn Mahathir; Tony Pua is just a loudmouth who fires away hoping something would hit.
Perhaps Mr Botox thinks that the MACC is pandering to UMNO and that UMNO controls the MACC.
Mr Botox being Mr Botox is not a bright person really.
At the launch of GERAH, the MACC had the media such as The Star and Malaysia Nanban as well as representatives from political parties like the DAP and the MIC.
Yes! The DAP was there in the form of the ADUN for Kota Shah Alam YB Ganapathy Rao a/l Veraman, while MIC was in the form of Vice President Datuk T Mohan.
So Mr Botox’s attempt to villify the MACC has come to a nought.
The MACC is trying to be fair to all and it does not help its effort by having people like Mr Botox running them down.
Perhaps he should congratulate Lim Guan Eng’s effort to clear his name by delaying the corruption trial he is being charged for, or ask MACC to investigate the weird theft of the New Gen Party that has had its name changed by Botox and Mr Box Ezam.
In my post yesterday Noraihan Che Ali, Bahri Mohamad Zin’s second wife’s sister-in-law revealed that a team from Bahri’s Special Operations Division was sent from Putrajaya to raid her house and office confiscating documents pertaining to properties left by her late husband.
I have just been informed by friends in the legal profession that the Deputy Public Prosecutor who signed the Search Order was one Ahmad Sazilee bin Abdul Khairi.
I shall take a few steps back from that event.
DPP Ahmad Sazilee bin Abdul Khairi is not a nobody. He was seconded to the MACC from the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) and resided in Bahri’s Special Operations Division.
In August 2015, Ahmad Sazilee was one of three persons from Bahri’s division who were arrested by police in connection with leaking the SRC International/1MDB investigation details to Sarawak Report.
Puzzling, they were all released on bail but never charged in a court of law.
How then could he on the 14th January 2016 sign a Search Order made under Section 31 of the MACC Act as a DPP in the MACC when he was no longer there?
I wonder if the police investigating officer (IO) is aware of the above facts? From what I learnt the investigation paper (IP) was only submitted to the AGC two weeks ago (a year after Noraihan made her first police report). The IP has been rejected by the AGC as the investigation was shoddy.
The two should have been investigated under Section 8(1)(d)(iv) and (e)(iv) of the Official Secrets Act, 1972, and investigate the wife under Section 8(2) of the same Act.
To date, they have never been investigated nor charged in a court of law.
I wonder if Ahmad Sazilee’s sitting in the Trials Unit has anything to do with this.
As you remember in yesterday’s post it has been pointed out that Bahri’s division was formed to investigate high-profile cases of public interests and not some petty family property tussle.
Yet, Bahri’s division was sent from Putrajaya to Kota Bharu without the knowledge of the MACC Kelantan office.
For a MACC Search Order to be made there has to be an offence or offences committed under the MACC Act.
Whatever it is, the fact that Bahri’s second wife made the MACC report, Bahri allowing his division to raid Noraihan’s home and office, and a DPP no longer with the MACC signing a search order as a MACC DPP stinks awfully of a conspiracy to get their hands on RM100 million worth of properties.
If I were the IO whose IP was rejected by the AGC I would pluck the three from their cage and grill them.
And I would start with Ahmad Sazilee bin Abdul Khairi.
It’s almost like the Netflix series called ‘A Series Of Unfortunate Events’ where things don’t get any better as it progresses. Or so it seems for Bahri Mohammad Zin, former Director of Special Operations of the MACC, and his second wife Noor Haslina Abdullah who proclaims to be the Director-General of Akademi Memandu KIST Sdn Bhd (AMKIST).
Earlier this evening, I received a press statement by Noraihan Che Ali, the widow of Noor Haslina’s eldest brother Mazly pertaining to a police report filed by Bahri against her last week.
According to the statement, Noraihan welcomes the report made by Bahri and hopes that the MACC as well as the police would then expedite the investigation into the matter.
She was made to understand, the raid by MACC’s Special Operations Division headed by Bahri was based on the report to MACC (report number IPJ/RPTNO/0011/2016) made by none other than Noor Haslina herself. Noraihan pointed that although Bahri denies of any involvement the fact that the raiding party originated from Bahri’s division makes the whole affair more sinister.
Perhaps the two characters named in the Search Order above need to be interviewed by the police!
Noraihan also noted that the MACC website says that the Special Operations Division was formed in 2010 to investigate high-profile cases as well as cases of public interest and asks how can a family property tussle be a high-profile case or something of public interest that warrants the Division to interfere?
A quick check on the MACC website confirms Noraihan’s statement.
It looks like Noraihan’s questions are valid and warrants a thorough investigation by the police. The MACC has no choice but to cooperate in providing all neccessary information and documents pertaining to the case.
The MACC is a government body entrusted to stem if not eradicate corrupted practices in this country and it is only right that it seeks out to rid itself of people who have and can abuse this trust.
In April 1999, Anwar Ibrahim was sentenced to six years imprisonment for abusing his power as the Deputy Prime Minister to coerce witnesses to retract their statement against him.
Bahri Mohamad Zin, the former Director of Special Operations of the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) who apparently leads a ‘master and servant‘ lifestyle with his wife Noor Haslina Abdullah as the master, did the very same thing on the 18th January 2016.
A team from the MACC’s Special Operations Unit was dispatched from Putrajaya to raid the house of Noor Haslina’s widowed sister-in-law Noraihan to seize documents linked to a dispute involving Noor Haslina and the latter.
This was revealed by Noraihan Che Ali at a media conference today. Noraihan was accompanied by her lawyer Datuk Ahmad Zaharil Muhaiyar.
Noraihan said that she and her children moved out of their house after it was seized by the MACC.
Noraihan added that both Noor Haslina and Bahri had tried to get her (Noraihan) to sign a document agreeing to give up her rights and her children’s rights to the properties estimated at RM100 million left by her late husband.
Prior to the raid, Noor Haslina and Bahri had tried to obtain an agreement from Noraihan and her children to forgo their rights to the properties. They even tried to force Noraihan’s nine-year old son to get his thumbprint for the said document.
Noraihan’s lawyer Datuk Ahmad Zaharil also revealed that Noor Haslina and Bahri had doctored a will to exclude Noraihan and family from receiving any property.
“This is a family matter, why should there be an involvement of the MACC? And it has been a year since the raid was made, don’t tell me they need such a long time to investigate (the documents),” asked Datuk Ahmad Zaharil.
“And Noor Haslina should go to a court of law to obtain a power of attorney to administer Allahyarham Zamly’s properties instead of using high-handed methods,” he added.
Noraihan lodged two police reports last year which were first revealed to the public in an article posted by Malaysia Today early this month.
Both reports have not been acted upon seriously by the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) especially on the part of abuse of power. The use of government apparatus to achieve one’s own goals is no different to what Anwar Ibrahim did and was jailed for.
Noraihan said that she and her family continuously live in constant fear as threats and harrassment have become a daily occurrence.
She revealed that she almost did not turn up for the press conference due to constant harassments including from people representing Noor Haslina.
So it seems that Bahri who constantly portrays himself as a God-fearing, no-nonsense man, stinks to high heaven and would do anything for his wife in order to deny orphans their right to their late father’s properties.
The use of MACC apparatus for his own personal interest is a clear indication of his willingness to abuse his position to achieve his ends.
PDRM must act upon her reports while the MACC has to conduct an internal investigation or else there will be those who have the potential to continuation tarnish the good name the MACC is currently having under this current administration.
The Director-General of the Protection Division of the Prime Minister’s Department should also look into providing Noraihan Che Ali with a witness protection program given the continuous threats and harrassments they receive.
