Revealed: The Corporate Cronies of DAP in Penang: IJM Land Berhad – Part 1

1Source: DAP Insider

IJM Land Berhad has been a major developer in Penang for a long time and the political tsunami of March 8, 2008 caught it by surprise when the BN administration led by Gerakan Chief Minister Koh Tsu Koon was toppled by DAP in the General Election and Lim Guan Eng was swept into the Chief Minister’s seat in Penang.

IJM Land Berhad had many applications for property development in Penang which were pending approval by the Penang State Government. The most ambitious project was the Penang Waterfront project planned by IJM to be built over 152 acres of reclaimed land. This huge tract of reclaimed land was the result of the Jelutong Expressway (Federal Route 3113) which is a coastal expressway that connects the Penang Bridge to George Town, Penang. It is today part of the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway, which runs for 17.84 km from the Prangin Road Ghaut junction to Batu Maung intersection.

2Hectares of land were reclaimed for the construction of this expressway. Phase I of the Jelutong Expressway was completed in 2003 while Phase II was completed and opened in July, 2006.

One component of the development plans for the Penang Waterfront Project was a super high-rise condominium project called The Light Point – with proposed plan for 56 storeys – that will make it the highest ever residential project in Penang and the second highest building in Penang (after KOMTAR which is 65 storeys). It was designed to be the iconic building in Penang – designed like a light house to be seen even from afar. The project is part of a larger, more comprehensive mixed development spanning 152 acres on the Eastern coastline of Penang Island known as THE LIGHT Waterfront Penang. The entire development includes the construction of hotels, shopping malls, MICE, Cultural Centre, IT Hub, Office space and a seven acre landscaped seafront park.

Since there is now a new administration in Penang, IJM Land Berhad sent its Managing Director Datuk Soam Heng Choon and Dato Teh Kean Ming, the then Managing Director of IJM Properties Sdn Bhd to pay a courtesy call on Lim Guan Eng who is the new Penang Chief Minister and seek reassurance that their development projects will remain on track without changes. The meeting took place in April 2008.

3It was a cordial meeting and understandably, the two gentlemen from a major corporation asked Lim if there was anything that they can do to assist him in developing Penang or any donations that they can make to help the construction of a new DAP Headquarters building in Penang. Guan Eng’s reply was quick and to the point – yes apparently the DAP would like to have a new HQ building so as to reflect their status as the ruling party in Penang. As such, he would be most happy to accept a RM3 million donation towards the construction of the new State HQ in Rangoon Road. This can be paid into the DAP Penang Building Fund. Datuk Soam and Dato Teh was shocked by such a blatant request but nonetheless kept their composure and indicated to Chief Minister Guan Eng that they will certainly make a donation but will need to discuss the exact amount with their Board of Directors.

Over the next two weeks, the Board of Directors of IJM Land Berhad met and the “request” for donation of RM3 million to DAP Penang Building Fund was discussed and a decision was made that a donation of RM1.5 million was to be made instead of RM3 million. The said sum of RM1.5 million was then subsequently paid into the DAP Penang Building Fund account and Guan Eng was informed of it by IJM.

Within 3 months, IJM Land Berhad received approval for their development project and to their shock, the approval for the LIGHT POINT project was slashed down from 56 storeys to only 28 storeys. Datuk Soam immediately sought a meeting with CM Guan Eng to clarify and seek an explanation.

4

The explanation from CM Guan Eng was very simple – the request was for a donation of RM3 million but only half of it which is only RM1.5 million was received, so likewise the approval was for “half” of what was applied – 28 storeys only instead of 56 storeys. It is simple mathematics.

Datuk Soam had no choice but to accept this as an expensive lesson from Guan Eng and over the next few years, he learnt how to do business with Guan Eng in Penang. Today, save for that hiccup in 2008, IJM Land remained as one of the biggest developers in Penang and continues to focus on its iconic waterfront project in Penang, known as The Light Waterfront. It has launched its first phase consisting of three residential projects called The Light Linear, The Light Point and The Light Collection. Phase two comprises a mixed development including a hotel, corporate park, office towers and business hotel, fashion mall and waterfront dining and entertainment district. Its third phase, according to the master plan, is a sea front park.

The whole waterfront project spans a total of 152-acres and will be developed over the next 12 to 15 years via Jelutong Development Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of IJM Properties Sdn Bhd.

      One way of beating the phantom votes is calling all our relatives, neighbours n friends to come out to votes on the polling day. We should fight with massive votes to overwhelm the dirty electoral roll for a better Malaysia. All should raise to the occasion for this coming 13GE being touted as the mother of all elections.

        Oh yes, the phantom votes caused the states of Penang, Selangor, Perak, Kedah and Kelantan to fall to the unholy alliance of Pakatan Rakyat at the 12th GE in 2008!!!!

          The illegal immigrant issues are now the centre of discussions and grapevines nationwide in view of the upcoming 13th general election since the issues have affected the results of the past general elections in Malaysia, particularly in Sabah.

          Looking back in history, although Filipino immigrants in Sabah had ancestral links dating back to the period before the independence of Malaysia, the major issue on the Malaysian identity cards given to them dates back to the era of Mustapha Harun as the third chief minister of Sabah.

          In the 1970’s, Filipino refugees from Mindanao began arriving in Sabah as a result of the Moro insurgency taking place in the region.

          These refugees had arrived in droves and more than 73,000 Filipinos were granted refugees status from 1976 to 1985.

          Of the 73,000 Filipino refugees in Sabah, 33,019 had been issued with the refugee card (IMM13) according to Moktar Yassin, the secretary of Home Affairs and Research office in the Sabah Chief Minister’s Department (JKM).

          A total of about 325,000 illegal immigrants were detected and documented through census between 1987 and 1992 according to Abdul Ja’afar Alip, former head of settlement unit in the Chief Minister’s Department.

          Sabah’s population leapt in 1991. A population census, carried out in 1991, showed that Sabah’s demography had changed drastically with huge increase in its population according to Prof Rangit Singh.

          The census reported the population of Sabah to be 1.7 million and out of this total there were 423,000 non-citizens. But just who these non-citizens are, were not disclosed in the census.

          According to Prof Ranjit in the 1891 census, the population of then North Borneo was 67,000 people comprising 34,000 (50.7%) Dusuns, 11,000 (16.4%) Bajaus, 3,005 (4.5%) Bruneians, 3,700 (5.5%) Suluks, 7,000 (10.4%) Chinese, and 8,295 (12.4%) others, while there were no figures for the Muruts and Orang Sungais.

          In the 1970 census, Sabah’s population was 651,000 with 183,000 (28.1%) Dusuns, 30,000 (4.6%) Muruts, 77,000 (11.9%) Bajaus, 28,000 (4.3%) Melayu Brunei, 10,000 (1.5%) Suluks, 17,000 (2.6%) Orang Sungais, 138,000 (21.2%) Chinese, and 168,000 (25.8%) were others.

          The 127,949 identity cards issued in the state from 1979 to 1996 were believed to be questionable according to Roslan Alias, the head of the National Registration Department (NRD) Sabah and Sarawak Special Unit assistant, and of the total, 91,656 were cancelled after their issuance was deemed “unsystematic”.

          During the January 2013 RCI hearing and as reported in the newspaper, Ramli Kamarudin, former director of the state NRD, said immigrants were recruited as phantom voters during the 1994 state election.

          According to him, he was instructed to issue temporary identity card (IC) receipts to immigrants to allow them to vote in the election.

          He said the instruction came directly from deputy director -eneral of NRD and the then-deputy home affairs minister Megat Junid.

          He said between 200 and 400 of these temporary receipts were used by non-citizens to vote in each of the five or six constituencies involved.

          He explained that the temporary documents had an expiry period of only three months and no application for ICs were filed prior to their issuance and therefore they could not be used for issuance of ICs.

          He disclosed that the state Election Commission director, Wan Ahmad Wan Omar, had handed to NRD personnel a name list of 16,000 names and that the state NRD director, Ramli Kamarudin, had verbally instructed them to do the changes to those in possession of the JPN1/9 and JPN1/11 documents (JPN1/9 is the temporary receipt issued for application of an identity card while JPN1/11 is issued for a lost identity card).

          Former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been accused of spearheading the so-called ‘Project IC’, in which citizenships were allegedly given to immigrants in exchange for their votes.

          Mahathir admitted that citizenships were given to foreigners in Sabah, but stressed that it was “within the law”.

          Filipino refugees given ICs met all requirements said Mahathir. He admitted that during his tenure, he had given citizenship to Filipino refugees in Sabah who were able to meet all the requirements and that these identity cards were handed out legally.

          But he did not know if the former deputy home affairs minister Magat Junid Megat Ayub had ordered them to be issued on purpose ahead of the state election.

          The late former deputy home affairs minister Megat Junid Megat Ayub was accused of ordering the national registration department (NRD)’s Sabah branch to issue temporary documents to allow immigrants to vote in a 1994 state election.

          On Jan 17, 2013, Prime Minister Najib Razak said that there is nothing wrong in handing out citizenships to foreigners as long as the law is followed, amidst revelations by former government officials that identity cards had been given to illegal immigrants to vote in the Sabah state election in 1994.

          The Election Commission had instructed the NRD to change the names of 16,000 immigrants in Sabah and to give them identity cards.

          Former Sabah NRD deputy director Mohd Nasir Sugip, who worked in Sabah NRD from 1992 to 1994, told the RCI that the then-Sabah EC director, Wan Ahmad Wan Yusof, had ordered Sabah NRD to change the names of Indonesian and Filipino immigrants to increase the number of Muslim voters in Sabah.

          These illegal immigrants are becoming Malaysian as “new bumiputera” with native rights especially those who are Muslims.

          The issues have now come to light and are being discussed in the open by Malaysians all over the country.

          Citizenship and ownership of MyKad is the sovereign right of all Malaysians.

          There are so many original native Malaysians especially in the rural remote part of Sabah and Sarawak who have neither birth certificates nor identity cards or MyKad until today.

          They are poor rural folk and they cannot afford to travel the rough terrain to go to the towns or city to register themselves for their MyKad.

          For a native Malaysian to get a MyKad, he has to get the card clinic, birth certificate, parents’ marriage certificate and their MyKads, village head certification, etc before he can get near to his MyKad. What is the government doing about this?

          Why is it so easy for illegal immigrants without any proper document to become a “new bumiputera”?

          These new bumiputera have been given not only blue identity cards or MyKads but also the right to vote in elections and to own land including native title land.

          We cannot blame the illegal immigrants or Penduduk Tanpa Izin (PTI) because they were given the right to have MyKad by the Malaysian BN government and also the right to vote (with incentives) in elections.

          Anybody in their right mind would gladly accept citizenship and voting rights for free plus “goodies”.

          Malaysians are now smacked in the middle of this very big controversy dangerously close to the 13th general election.

          Is the government really doing anything or is this just more “lip service” like the other past RCIs?

          The saying goes “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”.

          The Malaysian people will have to decide their own fate for the coming general elections. It is now time to decide the fate of our future and the future of our generations.

          Do you want to flog your future and have more of the BN government management or do you want to change the managers?

            20 years ago, the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Mahathir Mohamad, was systematically granting of citizenship to illegal immigrants by giving them identity documents in Sabah.

            This so called Project IC a.k.a Project M is to alter the demographic pattern of Sabah to make it more favorable to the ruling government, namely Barisan National. There are at least 1,500,000 “Project IC citizens” in Malaysia by 2012.

            In other words, our fate is now decided by someone who does not belong to here. Our government “help” them to gain citizenship, and they “help” the ruling party to win the election. Najib is doing the same thing now! What is the point to have election then? Where is our right to choose our future? How can we accept all these unscrupulous actions of BN government that would destroy democracy?

            Steve Yaman,

            You got a blinkered view of the Sabh IC issue, haven’t you? You blinkered yourself to suit your own beliefs?

            Didn’t you read the testimony of one of those arrested and ISA-ed for manufacturing and selling fake ICs – including several former state National Registration Department (NRD) officers, “admitting to selling the documents on their own accord and not under orders from any quarter. ” Here’s one NST news report on the RCI testimony:

            NO ORDERS GIVEN: Those who issued ICs to foreigners in Sabah did it for money, RCI told

            KOTA KINABALU: THOSE behind the issuance of Malaysian identity documents to foreigners in Sabah were doing it solely for the money and not under instructions from anyone, the Royal Commission of Inquiry was told yesterday.

            Several former state National Registration Department (NRD) officers admitted to selling the documents on their own accord and not under orders from any quarter.

            Sarawak Special Branch head Datuk Ibrahim Zakaria, who took the stand as the 33rd witness, testified that in 1996, he had been tasked to interview former Internal Security Act (ISA) detainee Datuk Abdul Rauf Sani, who had served as Sabah NRD director from 1990 to 1992.
            “He (Rauf) had admitted to issuing 6,305 identity cards to foreigners and had collected RM167,300 from it. He also admitted to doing so for personal profit and on his own will without instructions from any quarter.”

            Ibrahim, who was then with Bukit Aman Special Branch, added that Rauf was detained under the ISA for illegally issuing identity cards.

            Rauf had told the inquiry that blue identity cards were issued to increase the number of Muslim voters in Sabah.

            He had said the immigrants issued with identity cards were taught how to vote in elections, or risked having their documents withdrawn.

            Intelligence Technical Unit staff officer of the Kelantan police headquarters, Deputy Superintendent Badaruddin Ismail, told the panel that another ex-Sabah NRD director, Ramli Kamaruddin, had admitted to giving 16,000 receipts known as JPN 1/9 (temporary identity documents) and JPN 1/11 (temporary documents to indicate the holder of an identity document that was reported lost) to foreigners.

            Badaruddin told the the panel that during his interview with the former ISA detainee, Ramli had charged RM250 for each receipt and had received more than RM1 million from it.

            Ramli had also said that he did not receive any instruction from anyone, including government leaders, to issue the temporary identity documents to foreigners from 1993 to 1995.

            Badaruddin told the inquiry that Ramli had distributed the money among subordinates involved in the scam and had used it for his own use.

        • Wong Sai Kee says:

          Can somebody cross check with the voting records to confirm that all these “illegal Malaysians” voted in the General Elections upon being issued with the ics/receipts? If it can be confirmed that they voted, then we can strongly deduced that such ics/receipts were issued with the purpose of cheating during the GE.

          • Anonymous says:

            Those issued with genuine ICs processed according to procedures, based on a minimum 12 years permanent residency, would have been valid voters.

            Those who bought fake ICs and ICs issued specifically for sale by crooked officers in the National Registration Dept Sabah (see my comment 2 comments above this) would have their ICs cancelled after the arrest and detention under ISA of those involved.

            Those receipts that pertained to the Muslim Filipino refugees would not have entitled them to Blue ICs and the right to vote.

            But anyone willing to check with the voting records is welcome to do so and let us know the results of the checking.

        •Thaipusam 2013 (RM1 million)
        •Ponggal festival 2013 (RM3 million)

        Despite millions being poured into these functions, how many poor Indians benefited from this? Nobody dares answer this, because even Najib doesn’t have a clue.

        Worse still, there were also allegations that the funds were misused by certain leaders.

    Sudah diberi peluang memerintah sejak kemerdekaan, akan tetapi masih ada rakyat Malaysia yang hidup tanpa tenaga asas. Itulah kehebatan BN.

      Aiseh, impostor IDA,

      Kamu kata, “Sememangnya kerajaan PR sekarang ada kelemahan dan kekurangan.” Mana tentu ada “kerajaan PR akan datang”? 1-2 tahun dah tunjuk kelemahan, bila lebih, sampah pun tak di angkat, air pun takda di beberapa tempat di Selangor.

      Bukannya kerajaan PR ada “kekurangan” – sebenarnya ada berbagai penipuan, janji tak di tepati, kerajaan PR Selangor pun kena saman, contohnya oleh single mothers.

      Bila BN membentuk kerajaan semula, banyak masalah akan selesai, masalah sampah dan air akan di hapuskan scepat mungkin – nyata rekod baik BN dalam hal ini dah 55 tahun di berbagai negeri.

      Pasal rasuah, nepotisme, kronisme, Pakatan Rakyat merintah 1-2 tahun pun dah tunjuk ada buat. Tengoklah Talamgate, jawatan dan kerusi Parlimen/DUN yang keluarga Lim dan Karpal dapat, kroni kroni Anwar di beri jawatan di sana sini. Khalid Ibrahim pulak biarkan Gereja Methodis Damansara Utama cuba murtadkan 12 wanita Islam lk 1 tahun lalu.

      Apa kamu nak mengarut cakap “masih ada rakyat Malaysia yang hidup tanpa tenaga asas” marahkan BN pulak. Rakyat Selangor, negeri yang paling maju di bawah pemerintahan BN sejak berpuluh tahun, sekarang pungut sampah pun masih jadi masalah, air pun takda di beberapa daerah. Ramai rakyat Selangor dah meluat nengok kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat.

            Untuk mengelakkan kehancuran dasar dan salah laku daripada terdedah, Mahathir terpaksa menggunakan politik perkauman yang menjadi kegemarannya.Dia terpaksa meyakinkan orang Melayu bahawa apa yang telah dilakukannya adalah perlu untuk kepentingan mereka. Dia menyimpanhabuan yang besar untuk dirinya dan memberi cebisan kecil untuk meyakinkan orang Melayu bahawa persengketaan terhadap kaum-kaum lain adalah benar.Orang bukan Melayu perlu disekat. Oleh itu, peruntukan bajet untuk rancangan seperti BTN atau Biro Tata Negara di mana graduan Melayu dan penjawat awam secara terbuka dipupuk untuk menjadi curiga terhadap kaum-kaum lain.

            Tetapi tidak semua orang Melayu terpengaruh. Ajaran itu menyalahi Islam dan juga terhadap nilai-nilai kemanusiaan sejagat. Kaum Melayu berada dalam keadaan keliru, manakala orang bukan Melayu sama sekali diketepikan.

            Kuda Kepang,

            The real racists and bigots are DAP. Remember the election of their central committee (CEC), they proved to be uber-racists?

            Remember that out of the 8 Malays who contested, not one of them was appointed to the CEC?

            So despite being a so-called multiracial party, only the Chinese were represented in the CEC.
            OK lah, what to do, the selection was based on merit as perceived by the members.

            But then, why was Zairil then appointed to CEC? Was this to show the presence of a Malay in the CEC? But that’s racism man, and DAP says it is not racist.

            So if it isn’t racism, why did you raise a person whom your members considered as unfit to lead them?

            Then how many weeks later, only then you say the results were tallied wrongly. It took so long? Why? You people don’t know how to use computers haa? My Excel works fine lehhhh… I find your excuses impossible to follow.

            So, DAP, are you racist, unfit to lead, or just technically incompetent?

            So there you have it, Kuda Kepang, just in case you forgot about what a massive letdown PR and DAP are. You’re welcome.

          I even doubt you are a Malay. Asking people “don’t push the blame to the Chinese community” when blokes like Lim Kit Siang and the DAP have been anti-Malay and anti-Islam since DAP’s inception. Wanting equality without even acknowledging the Special Position of the Malay and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak. Ungkitting it such that it led to the race riots of 1969. Just google “13 May 1969: A Tragedy, by National Operations Council, October 1969″ and you’ll find detailed accounts of what DAP did that caused the riots.

          You bullshit about the so-called “instant citizen given to so many foreigners … a practice been perfect by Tun M”. Read the news reports on the Sabah RCI. Those who testified included the ones who were arrested and ISA-ed for producing fake ICs and issuing ICs “without instruction from anybody” but entirely on their own accord, selling them to make money for their own personal use.

  5. Zaid says:

    If we follow the actions and thinking of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his supporters, then we must rectify the “errors’ of the past, even if it means violating established principles of the Constitution, laws and good governance.

    According to them, bringing in more Muslims into Sabah in the 1990s and making them citizens was not a cynical move to help the ruling coalition win elections (although that was the immediate benefit), but to correct the mistakes of history. Simply put, the country needed to have more Muslims – even if they were foreigners from the Philippines, Pakistan or Indonesia – because Tunku Abdul Rahman “gave away” citizenship to the Chinese and Indians as part of the Merdeka agreement. Dr M somehow blames the Tunku for making citizenship “easier” for non-Malays, which he believes justifies his call for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into Tunku’s decision 60 years ago.

    His ranting could be ignored if it weren’t for the fact that it’s dangerous. Dr M destroyed UMNO when it did his bidding and we must not allow him to destroy the country too. To advocate reviewing all past policies and disowning our former leaders’ great sacrifices is highly irresponsible. The country’s design and constitutional make-up is not like the latest Proton model for him to change at whim. Our heritage and history are ours, not his. He has lost all sense of proportion in trying to gain traction for his wayward political views to change the outcome of the General Election.

    Dr M was a member of the Alliance, which agreed to adopt the principle of “jus soli” in granting citizenship to non-Malays. It was a social contract that the Malay Rulers agreed to, and which the rakyat also supported, as evidenced by the Alliance’s overwhelming victories in the 1955 and 1959 elections. Yet Dr M has no compunction ridiculing our pioneering leaders’ great effort to forge a nation. He is bent on making race a divisive issue in this General Election and he will destroy this country if his views are not accepted.

    So let’s make this General Election a referendum on the man himself. If we reject him, as we must, then we can only do so by rejecting the Barisan Nasional. The eunuchs in the BN are all scared of him. I urge Malaysians to show their revulsion for this man and his ideas by rejecting the BN once and for all. We cannot solve today’s problems by harping on the past. We have to live with the past, and not find excuses when we are unable to govern well now. We solve problems by working together, by adopting peaceful means and by having big-hearted leaders like the Tunku. The revisionists of our history have to be put in their proper places.

      1. The Bank Bumiputra twin scandals in the early 1980s saw US$1 billion (RM3.2 billion in 2008 ringgit).
      so tell us then, who were the public figures involved in the scandal ? you can’t eh ? I know you can’t name the people because the cases were never proven in the courts.

      2. The Maminco attempt to corner the world tin market in the 1980s is believed to have cost some US$500 million. (RM1.6 billion).
      that was not unusual. in fact governments the world over engaged in such activities. just look at the US Federal Reserve. they too were, and are still involved in money printing operations to manipulate the global financial systems.

      3. Betting in foreign exchange futures cost Bank Negara Malaysia RM30 billion in the 1990s.
      there must be records of the years. so could you please tell us which years ? again you can’t because you are just speculating based on hearsay.

      4. Perwaja Steel resulted in losses of US$800 million (RM2.56 billion). Eric Chia, was charged with corruption for allegedly steering US$20 million (RM64 million) to a Hong Kong-based company.
      so the guy Eric Chia was charged. that’s what we call accountability, unlike the RM75 billion project in Penang where the CM said he knew nothing of it but had to backtracked after one of his exco members said the project is under consideration.

      5. Use of RM10 billion public funds in the Valuecap Sdn. Bhd. operation to shore up the stock market.
      again governments the world over do that. in the Eurozone, they initiated the Long Term Refinancing Operation to shore up fragile banks that have difficulties with financing their operations.

      6. Banking scandal of RM700 million losses in Bank Islam.
      normal there. nobody can predict the outcome of loans gone sour. market volatility. so again your so called scandal is based of speculation that originated from hearsay.

      7. The sale of M.V. Agusta by Proton for one Euro making a loss of €75.99 million (RM 348 million).
      well, American heavy equipment manufacturer Caterpillar had to write off US$500 million due to irregularities when they purchased the Chinese equipment manufacturer Siwei for US$680 million. so are you implying that every time a company makes a loss, there’s corruption ? again you are spreading malice.

      8. Wang Ehsan from oil royalty on Terengganu RM7.4 billion from 2004 – 2007.
      read the Petroleum Development Act of 1974. don’t just spread malice. but then again, opposition people are good at spreading malice so………

      9. For the past 10 years since Philharmonic Orchestra was established, this orchestra has swallowed a total of RM500 million.
      this is an intangible investment. you don’t recoup what you have invested simply because its a form of public service, social service.

      10. In Advisors Fees, Mahathir was paid RM180,000, Shahrizat Abdul Jalil (women and social development affairs) RM404,726 and Abdul Hamid Othman (religious) RM549,675 per annum.
      that’s the market rate. there are those paid much more than the 3 persons mentioned for doing nothing. just ask Teresa Kok and the other elected reps of the DAP in Selangor.

      11. The government has spent a total of RM3.2 billion in teaching Maths and Science in English over the past five years. Out of the amount, the government paid a whopping RM2.21 billion for the purchase of information and computer technology (ICT) equipments which it is unable to give a breakdown.
      again you are spreading lies. you want a breakdown, go get copies of the Federal Government’s budget report over those 5 years.

      12. The commission paid for purchase of jets and submarines to two private companies Perimeker Sdn Bhd and IMT Defence Sdn Bhd amounted to RM910 million.
      this is normal procedure. you pay them because you need people with the know how to do the work. but then I seriously doubt the figure of RM910 million.

      13. RM300 million to compensate Gerbang Perdana for the RM1.1 billion “Crooked Scenic Half-Bridge”.
      the Government never paid the RM300 million. Samy Vellu himself said the government will not entertain the company’s claims without documented proof.

      14. RM1.3 billion have been wasted building the white elephant Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) facilities on cancellation of the Malaysia-Singapore scenic bridge.
      the project was cancelled after the Singapore government came out with extra demands for air space use for their military aircraft and selling them sands. those demands were not included when both governments agreed to build the scenic bridge. any responsible government would not entertain such demands as those of Singapore’s. better to scrap the project than surrendering partial sovereignty.

      15. RM 100 million on renovation of Parliament building and leaks.
      buildings need concurrent maintenance. without maintenance, they will simple become prone to accidents. normal there. what wastage ?

      16. National Astronaut Programme – RM 40 million.
      those space tourists paid US25 million just to experience the travel to space. we paid RM40 million and we were allowed to carried out experiments.

      17. National Service Training Programme – yearly an estimate of RM 500 million.
      don’t just say you “estimate”. give precise numbers, or else don’t just speculate. but then people like you……………

      18. Eye on Malaysia – RM 30 million and another RM5.7 million of free ticket.
      are you sure about this ? don’t just “estimate”.

      19. RM 4.63 billion, ’soft-loan’ to PKFZ.
      the court is hearing the case. that’s accountability. the same can’t be said of the Penang state government and their relationship with property developers.

      20. RM 2.4 million on indelible ink.
      this is funny. you wanted indelible ink and now you’re saying this is wastage ? very funny !

      21. Samy announced in September 2006 that the government paid compensation amounting to RM 38.5 billion to the highway companies. RM 380 million windfalls for 9 toll concessionaires earned solely from the toll hike in 2008 alone.
      you want free pass without thinking “where are we going to find the money for maintenance so that the roads, highways will stay in good shape, thus making driving safer for everyone”. you think everything is free eh ?

      22. RM32 million timber export kickbacks involving companies connected to Sarawak Chief Minister and his family.
      again this is bonkers, speculation. give names. you can’t eh ?

      23. Two bailouts of Malaysia Airline System RM7.9 billion.
      well Japan bailed out one of their airlines in 2010. what are you going to say about that ?

      24. Putra transport system, which cost RM4.486 billion.
      you complain about the government not providing public transport. if the government didn’t bail out the system, who’s going to provide the public service to the public ? you ?

      25. STAR-LRT bailout costing RM3.256 billion.

      now you have to drag in religious issues. this only goes to show that you are utterly incapable of rational debate.

      30. Le Tour de Langkawi costing RM 3.5 Million.
      the sponsors provide the bulk of the funding. this is commercial advertising, to promote tourism. but then again, people like you think everything is free. but then people like you………….

      31. Wholesale distribution of tens of millions of shares in Bursa Malaysia under guise of NEP to cronies, children and relatives of BN leaders and Ministers worth billions of ringgits.
      ask The Butt Man and his Band of Brothers. they too benefited. ask too the PAS people. they too benefited. ask too the Chinese tycoons who acted as the middlemen of the Bumiputra. they too benefited. you have anything to say ? you accused people yet the fingers point back at you.

      34. Travel around Malaysia and see for yourself how many white elephants like majestic arches, roads paved with fanciful bricks, designer lamp posts, clock towers, Municipal Council buildings that looks more like Istanas, extravagant places of worship, refurbishment of residences of VIPs, abandoned or under-utilised government sports complexes and buildings, etc! Combined they could easily amount to the hundreds of billions of ringgits!
      now you are really devoid of ideas and argument. you can’t come up with coherent facts and you again resort to slanders and malice.

      35. Wastages and forward trading of Petronas oil in the 1990s based on the low price of oil then. Since the accounts of Petronas are for the eyes of Prime Minister only, we have absolutely no idea of the amount. Whatever amount, you bet it is COLLOSSAL!
      again you are speculating. you said you have no idea of the amount, then you contradicted yourself by saying the amount is colossal. you can’t even spell the word colossal correctly. but then again, people like you can’t tell the difference.

      Just remember this. The Government could have remain status quo and keep all the money in the bank and play safe. No projects, no risks and no gain. It also mean no jobs, no bread and no milk for its people. It also means if we do not try to do things, we move backwards when everyone is moving forward.

      Any business will have losses and profits. If MAS or any GLCs loses money, will you leave it to go bankrupt? If Perwaja does not try to start a steel mill, we will forever depend on Korea, China and South Africa for steel imports. Where is the development of expertise? Likewise for Proton, maybe the quality is not at par but do you close it down just because it is losing money?

      Who are you to say this highway cost so much and that STAR LRT cost that much? Do you know how much is does it cost to cut hills and stabilise coastal terrain?

You are one guy whom I bet have never taken a LRT before and experience the hardships of a commoner.

    “Mass Resignation in MCA – not reported in The Star
    MCA implodes, a blow to BN

    TWO time bombs have exploded in the MCA in the past two days but the mainstream media, especially MCA’s mouthpiece, The Star, has down played the news.

    About 1,000 MCA members from Penang and Johor have resigned en bloc. They cite the loss of confidence in the party leadership as their reason for quitting.

    The resignations are only the tip of the iceberg and it signals the beginning of the imploding of Barisan Nasional (BN)’s second largest component party.

    According to a few of those who quit, more MCA members nationwide are expected to quit in the run-up to the next general election. The mainstream media are down playing the news because it is a major blow for the MCA and BN’s preparations for the general election widely expected to be called by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak in February or March.

    Those who quit say they had lost confidence in the MCA leadership because it is led by a scandal-tainted and immoral president, Dr Chua Soi Lek.

    “Whenever he speaks on any issue, it backfires and is a laughing stock of the people or grassroots.

    This is because Chua is in no position to talk about issues on morality and integrity. “We cannot continue to be associated with such a leader and his cronies who are only looking after their own interest and positions,” said a former MCA member who is known to this writer.

    Citing recent events and issues, the former member said: “It is embarrassing to MCA for Chua to talk about freedom of the press and freedom of speech. “What is he talking about when the first thing he (Chua) did when he won the presidency by fluke was to place The Star directly under the control of the party. “The paper is now under the overall control of a panel that includes his son (Tee Yong) as a key member. He also appointed his son in government positions.

    “The MCA leadership is now led by a man who is morally tainted and one who practices nepotism and cronyism to turn the party into his family’s empire,” he added.

    Another former member added: “Just watch how MCA implodes in the run-up to the 13th General Election. At least 30 per cent of its members will eventually abandon the party by polling day.”

    In another development, party insiders say Selangor MCA is in shambles following a fallout between Chua and state MCA chief Donald Lim Siang Chai.

    As the state chief, Lim does not even have the say to decide which seat to contest.

    Lim is said to be eyeing the Selayang parliamentary seat but Chua already has someone else in mind – possibly a woman candidate.

    What is telling is that Lim does not even have the confidence to try and wrest back his former seat – PJ Selatan – where he was beaten by PKR’s Hee Loy Sian by 5,706 votes in 2008.Party insiders say the backdoor Deputy Finance Minister Senator is now desperate and is manoeuvring to get what he wants.

    The insiders say it would be most interesting to see how severely Selangor MCA would be split by the Chua-Lim tussle for control of the state.

      What is important is for the rakyat to ensure the BN loses even more parliamentary seats and more states.

      So, even if the BN does win, it will be so shackled at the federal and state levels, that it will have no choice but not to be arrogant anymore.

      God willing, Pakatan will win, PAS checked and confined to the super Malay-majority seats in Kelantan, Kedah and Terengganu and Anwar becomes PM with PKR as government in more states.

    Sabah is obviously the last frontier for the survival of UMNO due to its vast geographical landscape which makes it difficult to locate the illegals who were given Mycards and registered as voters.

    What happens after the end of a political reign? After serving two terms as Sabah’s government, Barisan Nasional led Parti Berjaya is unexpectedly toppled by newcomers Parti Bersatu Sabah, with the cooperation of the United Sabah National Organisation. On the night the 1985 state election results are announced, the secret coalition between PBS and USNO falls apart at the seams, leading to an overnight power struggle that takes place at the State Palace. This coup would become the precursor to dramatic demonstrations the following year. An incident that is rarely talked about today — making this — The Silent Riot.

    The index, an initiative by non-profit organisation Reporters Without Borders, showed that Malaysia dropped 23 places to the 145th position in the latest ranking.

    The index measures the degree of freedom journalists, media organisations and netizens enjoy and the continued efforts of authorities to ensure this freedom is not restrained. There are six criteria countries are evaluated on, mainly pluralism, media independence, environment and self-censorship, legislative framework, transparency and infrastructure.

    Based on this, the index placed Malaysia in its worst ever ranking thus far at 145 out of 179 countries. In 2012, the country was ranked at 122.

We plan to motivate 25% of them to literally go the extra mile by returning home to vote. BN has been in power for too long, we want to change how things are run in Malaysia. Politics is about choosing the least of two evils. Since we evolved into a two party system in 2008, we need to put Pakatan in Putrajaya after GE13. Although Pakatan is not 100 percent perfect, it is the only credible alternative for now.

        That is the reason why he is celebrating lesser known Pongal everywhere and anywhere to entice Indian votes.

        He cannot be arrogant, but once he wins, he will surely be arrogant.

    Malaysian politics is so DIRTY!! Don’t get me wrong the filth is not coming from BN and its satelite parties but coming from PKR!! We got the Kucing Kurap accountant LGodE who likes to boast that his state revenue are increasing by the millions but still the people of Pulau Pinang are nowhere near getting richer by the day, worst still, he like to say that PKR will make Malaysia prosper even more when all I see after PKR has got the 2 richest state in Malaysia is the RINGGIT value going down and down and down and down yearly!!

    Then LGodE also looked down on JB as if its the worst state in crime control and that his state is a safer state. Then, still deny that he ever said it as if there are people out there to sabotage him. This is where it gets cloudy. If he didn’t say such things about JB then why the hell did he apologise? There is a Malay saying that “Berani kerana benar, takut kerana salah” which literally means if he didnt say such things, he shouldnt apologise in the first place.

    Thirdly,I have seen videos of him in walkabouts where simply the people of Pulau Pinang wants to talk things out with him as to why he implement certain policies which might not benefit the people as a whole and his replies are always “You UMNO punya orang tak guna bebual dgn You!!” and of course the people got mad and said “Aku bukan orang UMNO lah, check membership bapak aku, dia orang PKR” but LGodE still insist they are UMNO guys. What kind of leader Malaysia wants to represent them? A good and democratic leader who will listen to its people’s pleas or those of the DICTATORSHIP style? Coz frankly, all I can see is DICTATORSHIP at its BEST here!!

    Also why the hell is LGodE always using UMNO as a platform for his attack? Why didnt he use the word BN like eg, “You orang BN tak guna bebual dgn YOU!!” Why must he attack UMNO only? The answer is because this kucing kurap is a RACIST!! Its as easy as that. He can choose to say BN but he prefer to attack UMNO. UMNO doesnt really run the country, it is BN which makes up of Malay, Chinese and Indian parties which really run the whole country. But he prefer to attack the Malay component of BN only. So I say F**k this guy!! Malaysians shoukd overthrow him for good as he is the only racist idiot who would want to destroy the harmonious unity of Malaysians of all race.

      It’s really hypocritical for Dr Mahathir to try to distance UMNO and himself from the firebrand Ibrahim Ali. Dr Mahathir personally endorses Perkasa and was actually present when the lunatic called for the burning of Bibles. Why didn’t our ex- PM sanction Ali earlier. Now that all right thinking Malaysians and the opposition have expressed their disgust, Dr Mahathir comes up with his comments against burning the Holy Scriptures. This is pure sham and hypocrisy. However, to give him some credit, at least he expresses his resentment against the burning of Bibles, albeit delayed. What is worst is the cowardly silence of our PM and DPM on this issue that has great concerns for Christians in Malaysia. How can the PM call himself a champion of moderation in the global scene?

      Billboards? Nope. Maybe BN pays for the construction of the board and the artwork but not the rental of space.

      So no television or radio ads to buy, no media ads to buy too, so what does BN do with the cash in hand?

      You must not forget the buntings and the banners, but then how many millions are needed? And that is if they pay the printers at all.

      So what does Umno do with the millions if not billions of ringgits in hand? Two words – money politics.

      And lots of money are needed to win Selangor for Najib. Yes for Najib, not for BN or Umno’s political survival. Money is needed in the billions to bring back Selangor into the fold.

        There’s so much cakap tak serupa bikin, janji tak di tepati, lintang pukang, tunggang langgang in Selangor that the voters are propelled to drop Pakatan and vote BN at PRU13.

        Garbage problem, clogged drains problem, causing flash floods problem, problem of pot holes on roads in housing areas. But worst of all is the no water problem in certain districts. Imagine, housewives in 4 storey walk-up flats in Seri Kembangan, Serdang, Ampang and such areas having to carry pails of water from water tankers up the stairs for bathing their kids, cook and wash clothes. Not enough stamina to carry water to bathe themselves also. Day in and day out fuming mad, vent up feelings and frustrated with Selangor Fuckatan Rakyat gomen.

        And those not affected by water problem talk about Talamgate, PR people making money out of sand mining approvals, stealing sand, cheating on sand quantities etc. Yet others were aghast at UniSel problems the students, contractors, sub-contractors, and suppliers of all kinds of services have to face.

        The Indians curse PR gomen regarding temples relocation even the destruction of a few. The Malays and other Muslims got disgusted with MB Khalid Ibrahim letting go the Methodist Church Damansara Utama attempting to proselytize 12 Muslim women invited to “berbuka puasa during a fasting month in a church”, then apologizing to the Pastor even before the State Religious Dept JAIS completed its investigation report.

        Only the Chinese seem to benefit, with all sorts of massage parlours, refloxology and what have you, unlicensed lodging and gambling houses of all kinds, illegal and backyard factories paying hush hush money but don’t have to put up proper structures for doing business. They benefit a lot because they berani – willing to take risks of being fined, and they don’t get fined because they always “kao tim” with the enforcement officers or have secret societies, thugs and gangsters prowling their areas of operation.

        But not all Chinese benefit or want to partake in such immoral and illegal ways of making money. Most are decent, law abiding and Constitution respecting citizens. These are pro-BN, and the Fuckatan Chinese supporters are lesser in number. Now that the Malays and others in the Klang Valley who voted Fuckatan at PRU12 out of disgust with Tun Dol are now saying they have seen enough of PR and want to get back to voting BN, those ads, campaign tools and paraphernalia are just for the carnival atmosphere not really for winning votes.

    Pertama: Manalah BN boleh tahu orang tu undi BN semasa pengundian? Orang tu dalam kubikel undi sorang sorang.

    Manalah tau PR dah bagi dorang RM50 untuk undi PR (Perlu di ketahui Anuwar bapak Politik Wang). Dah rugi BN penat penat bagi dorang IC tapi tak tau apa dorang pangkah dalam kubikel.

    Lagi DAP guna tektik lama: Kalau makcik dan pakcik tak suka DAP, pangkah DAP dalam kotak ya!

    Kedua: No. siri kertas undi boleh di kaitkan dengan no IC.
    Kata kawan aku yang PR tu dia pernah jaga tempat mengundi. No siri kertas undi tu boleh di kaitkan dengan No IC. Aku kata jadi? Boleh ke kerajaan bertindak atas orang yang undi pembangkang tu? Pukul? Penjara? Lucut kerakyatan? Dah tentu tak boleh.

    Idea asal saja dah bodoh gila. Patut ke rakyat terima tuduhan yang langsung tak masuk akal.

        Instead kau maybe tak tau nie mungkin pasal kau bukan orang warga Singapura. But kasi aku educatekan kau apa kau harus tau. Lee Kuan Yew sebenarnya tau yang Anwar Al Juburi kau tu telah meliwat. And trust me, LKY is a damn serious person. He have his sources punya. Walaupun aku tak suka sangat dgn LKY nie tapi aku trust dia when he meant business like this.

        Then Al Juburi dapat tau then dia threaten untuk sue LKY by saying “LKY, I see you in court”. That was in 2010. Skrg dah dua tahun takde bunyi pun nie Al Juburi. Apasal takut? Takut kalah kes ah tu. BODOH MANSUR!!

          Datuk,

          TABIK SPRING!!! I may not have much affinity for Singaporeans eventhough i spent 4 years dealing with Singaporeans down south years ago but with forward thinking amd actually decent Singaporeans like yourself i have to.just say you are indeed a breath of fresh air!! once again TABIK SPRING!!!

          p.s. please don’t think i’m racist or anything but alot of singaporeans i’ve dealt wit are just plain a**holes even if i’m a chinese fella but just doesn’t speak chinese.

          • Datuk Aku punya Parti says:

            Maaf ye The Real Rakyat, apakah maksud Tabik Spring? I’m new here and I might not know certain loghat or short form Malaysia but I’m learning.

            Anyway, if you guys need any clarification from our Singapore side, I will be there to verify anything just like how I verify how true PKR cyber trooper such as Mansur’s thrash and lies is.

            I love BN and I seriously feel only BN people dont hate Singapore. As for your bad experience with Singaporeans, I think most average Singaporeans are ok but they just dont like foreign workers. That I feel is the PAP’S fault as they let in nearly 2 million foreign workers working in Singapore.

            Then what about the local Singaporean who got no jobs? Thats why I feel its just an angst to see a foreigner working in Singapore. But trust me, most of us are OK people :-)

            And honestly, atleast BN does not allow a large number of foreigners to work in Singapore. Most Singaporeans felt betrayed by the Singapore government of letting in the ‘invasion’.

    There are many issues that are dear to the Chinese that a brain-dead MCA cannot comprehend. These issues are staring at the MCA in the face, yet the MCA remains clueless, let alone champion them.

    MCA cannot even dream up a blueprint to upgrade Chinese rights in the country to be on par with the rest of the races.

    To the MCA, meritocracy, equal rights, a level playing field, equal opportunities and freedom of worship are not important enough or worth fighting for. The Chinese are comfortable enough and do not need to enjoy such rights.

    But the MCA insists that Chinese support the MCA unconditionally, and not changing the status quo or making so many unreasonable demands. The Chinese are supposed to swallow their pride and stop fidgeting for change.

    Today, the Chinese feel betrayed by the MCA. To them, the last 50 years have been the dark ages, and many are dying to escape into the light.

      what took you so long to come here to mislead the readers ? without the MCA, Chinese schools would have long gone. without the MCA, there would be no Rahman College and Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman. what has the DAP done for the Chinese community ? how many Chinese schools have the DAP build for the Chinese community ?
      the MCA had never, have never and will never demand that the Chinese community support them unconditionally. the MCA only ask that the Chinese evaluate their options before they cast their votes.
      it is the DAP that demands that the Chinese support them unconditionally.

        I absolutely agree with Anon — Tell us what the biaDAP party has done for Malaysian all these while.
        All they have done is complain and cause other races to look at anything MCA has done for the Chinese with suspicion. After the big gain by DAP in the 1969 elections – did DAP managed to set up a U for the Chinese.
        Totally biased and illogical thinking. He better sleep on election day — it will be better for the Chinese.

      I’m Chinese & baptised a Catholic since I was an infant. I didn’t get any scholarship despite my results whereas my bumiputera friends got them to take up engineering, medicine etc even with inferior results to mine.

      That didn’t stop me from making the most of my opportunities in this blessed country. Mum & dad were low ranked civil servants who were unable to send me to a private college. In fact, dad even qualified for BR1M as their collective pensions are less than 3k.

      I’ve never felt oppressed on the basis of my race or religion in this country. I also don’t see why the agitation for change as there are more opportunities now for welfare assistance compared to 15 years ago where even PTPTN wasn’t around yet. If you are genuinely poor & in poverty, I don’t see why the government will help you stand on your two feet.

      To say PR will bring a wind of change that will lead to the betterment of our lives is callous & irresponsible. We’ve seen the change brought by PR. The non development of Kelantan for two decades is legendary. The water woes, mismanagement of UNISEL, Talam bailout, illegal sand mining, mushrooming spas & internet gambling centres, waste collection issues etc all happened since PR took over Selangor. Kedah’s woes are well documented to the extent that the MB denies blatant land clearing & even planned to charge for irrigation water to fill the state’s depleting coffers. The pearl of PR’s state, Penang is currently undergoing a wave of uncontrolled development to the detriment of the environment & living quality. Lets no even started on all the fights LGE seems determined to battle with all & sundry against him.

      At the end of it, if I itch for change, I will choose an evolving government. One that is beginning to change. One that is listening to the grassroots. One that is open to changes that were unthinkable in the past. One that is firmly adopting a paradigm shift.

      I won’t vote for one that promises change yet unable to even be flexible in their party dealings. That would be a disaster of epic proportions for the country.

      CSL is desperate. He is getting pessimistic on Barisan’s chances in GE13. Anything that may shove up support is better than none.
      On the contrary, I bet Bursa would do better in the medium term, discounting external factors. Any cleaner and more transparent Government would attract investors naturally.

      Maybe CSL has a big stake in Bursa through his nominees, just like most of his senior colleagues sitting in the Cabinet. They would be the biggest losers, not anyone else.Honestly, I cannot be botherted even if Bursa were to lose 1000 points. Nothing like a healthy correction when the market is propped up by the cronies.

    As the 13th general elections looms, many people are wondering what the impact will be on the financial markets in Malaysia in the event of a Pakatan win. Well, there is no precedent in Malaysia. We never had a change of federal government – one of the very few countries left in the world that hasn’t had a change of government.

    However, we can use precedence from other countries around the region. Let’s look at Indonesia. In 1998, General Suharto was overthrown after 33 years in power. At least a million people went to the streets and demanded his overthrow. The ensuing chaos led to his resignation.

    The Jakarta Composite Index (JKSE) dropped to a low of 245. Five years after his downfall, the JKSE doubled, and another five years later, it reached 900 percent appreciation, and currently it stands at a record high of 1,700 percent appreciation. That means, if you had invested RM10,000 in Jakarta stocks at the height of the revolution, it would be worth RM180,000 today. Not a bad investment.

    Let’s look at Thailand. The Thai SET Stock Index Chart shows that the Index has reached a record 5-year high today and has been climbing consistently for the last 4 years despite the chaos in Bangkok in May 2010 and the subsequent general elections in July 2011, where the Pheu Thai Party defeated the Democrat Party of PM Abhisit.

    Let’s look at Taiwan. In the year 2000, Chen Shui-bian won a historic election in Taiwan, breaking the Kuomintang’s 55-year monopoly on power. In 2004, the pro-Independence Chen stood for re-election. He – and his vice-presidential candidate – were shot during a re-election campaign, at the same time China amassed warships around the islands threatening to attack if the people voted for him. He won anyway.

    The TSEC chart shows that the market reacted to the events but it never fails to bounce back.

    Let’s look at South Korea. In 1980, martial law was declared. This was followed by the Kwangju massacre. By 1997, 1 million people flood the streets to demand General Chun Doo Hwan’s resignation. He eventually did. After he stepped down, President Roh-Tae-woo took over followed by another four presidents. All through this time, the markets were hitting new heights . Today the KOSPI is at a 25-year high.

    So history shows us that revolutions and change of governments presents great ‘buying opportunities’ for stocks. It’s good for the markets and good for investment. Stay tuned for the greatest stock buying opportunity of all time. In Malaysia.

      you didn’t mention that many lives were lost. the price the Chinese in Indonesia paid for regime change.
      you didn’t mention that families in Korea were wracked by the financial crisis, that Koreans had to surrender their national sovereignty to the International Monetary Fund, that jobs were lost.
      and Taiwan, 8 lost years under Chen Shui Bian. and countless crises with China.
      as for Thailand, now it is virtually a crony state of the Shinawatra family.

    Many people feared at the time that the so-called 6P Malaysia programme was some kind of voter registration exercise, along the lines of the notoriousProject IC in Sabah.

    Touted as a sudden amnesty by the BN government for illegal foreign workers, the programme (which lasted from July 2011-April 2012) allowed the immigrants to declare themselves and pay a fee for an official permit to stay on for two years.

    However, Sarawak Report has learnt through agents hired to process the permits that the main purpose of the exercise was to raise funds for BN’s election war chest.
    Under the programme over 372,000 foreign workers were rounded up from fields, factories and construction sites and bussed into registration centres. They or their employers were then required to pay up to RM4,000 each for the permits to avoid deportation and the money was specifically required in cash.

      Hello DAP cybertrooper you mau tipu sape?? i was involved in the 6P program since the beginning you wanna lie to who?? there is no rm6k fee only rm375 (if not mistaken) which is the maximum that can be charged of which the agency gets about half of that amount. i know some agents charged as high as rm 1.5k per head but only the govt share was paid to the govt the rest was pure profit to the agencies. i know of one agency which made a cool.rm1.5mil in profit in just 2 weeks doing this. so really rm4k and all to govt??

    Bekas pemandu kepada pelakon Zahida Rafik hari ini dipanggil ke Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM).

    Beliau yang ditemani Pengerusi Biro Undang-undang PKR Latheefa Koya serta ibu saudaranya, yang juga penyanyi terkenal tahun 1980-an, Dayangku Intan memasuki bangunan SPRM di Putrajaya kira-kira jam 10 pagi.

    Latheefa yang ditemui pemberita di luar bangunan SPRM berkata, beliau percaya Azman dipanggil berhubung kes dakwaannya sebelum ini yang melibatkan Zahida dan Menteri Pembangunan Luar Bandar dan Wilayah Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal.

    “Saya tak tahu kenapa dia dipanggil. Tapi saya percaya benda ni ada kaitan dengan dakwaan dia sebelum ini tentang Shafie dan Zahida. Kena tunggulah,” katanya.

    Pada 16 Mei tahun lalu, Azman dilaporkan mendakwa, beliau pernah menemani Zahida untuk memasukkan duit berjumlah RM1 juta yang didakwa diberikan oleh Shafie.

    Shafie dan Zahida sebelum ini telah menafikan dakwaan Azman dan PKR serta mengugut akan menyaman pihak-pihak yang didakwa cuba menfitnah mereka.

    Sementara itu, Azman bersama Latheefa keluar dari bangunan SPRM kira-kira jam 1.17 tengahari.

    Pada sidang media yang diadakan selepas itu, Latheefa memberitahu, Azman dipanggil ke SPRM sebagai saksi dalam kes melibatkan dakwaan Zahida terhadap bekas pemandunya itu.

      what is funny here is that these Chinese school graduates are the first to imitate, to ape westerners. yet they call themselves Chinese. you just have to hear them speak English. they can’t speak the language properly yet they insist on speaking it. the joke is that they should improve their command of English with regular usage yet most of them, even after years of “speaking” English, they still can’t speak the language properly. when it comes to writing, its even worse. you want proof ? just look at the comments of opposition folks on this site. for further confirmation, visit opposition sites on the Internet. their command of the English language is atrocious yet they think they have class just by throwing English words here and there.

    TRR 10.14,

    I see, in Singapore its like there. Most people here they like to look up amongst themselves. I guess its the confidence or status that Singapore brings about? Plus the goverment here always make it a point that mandarin is important here hence implementing policies such as “Speak Mandarin Campaign”.

    Honestly speaking most Singaporean chinese here can’t really speak Mandarin very well but they think they are champions of the language. You can even see Chinese B or simplified Chinese in exams in schools here. It is quite ridiculous here but its actually quite a worrying trend here. Many more Chinese students here are taking the Chinese B exams(An easier Moter Tongue exam but not recognised in national standards). So the next time if a Singapore Chinese look down on u TRR, tell him atleast Malaysian Chinese dont have such a thing called Chinese B exams.

    And as a guy with mix or should I say rojak family mix, I must say that I can speak some Mandarin but not fluent like water. And I’m a mix of Chinese plus Banjar and Indonesian Javanese mix. Take note my Chinese mix is not Singaporean Chinese but Mainland China as thats where my heritage is from :-)

    Datuk,

    it’s interesting to know that you too are of mix parentage as well!! however in my case my chinese background is from the baba’s of malacca the original baba’s as they call so i mean 500 years of no chinese speaking so we can’t speaking now can we? hahaha

  45. Datuk Aku punya Parti says:

    TRR,

    Oh yes, Baba Nyonyas I know. Singapore also have. The Peranakans we called them here. But in Singapore they speak Bahasa Melayu rather than Chinese. So I kind of understand what you are experiencing. Do you often speak Malay at home too?

    In Malaysia I know of some Baba Nyonyas like Florence and Charmaine Pooh(forgive my mispelling?) We have their cookshow called ‘Dapur Nyonya) here on our Suria Channel. The food looks delicious too by the way. :-)

    Almost none of you provide proper facts to convince voters to sway either way. Most of you were just busy attacking each opinions that doesn’t agree with your own standings and insulting each other’s intelligence(which reveals your level of intelligence) instead of providing solid and meaningful opinions on your own stand.

    To me, almost nothing here are facts but merely speculations and yet most of you are proud of it.

    This place is a total waste of time for fence sitters like me. Good luck in moving into a politically mature society.
