Bailing out Disaster Zone

The Sun's front page headline today

Disaster Zone. TheSun has a front page story headlined Disaster Zone. Citizen Nades and Terence Fernandez obtained documents and let you feel the filth and smell the stink of this crony-project. Azim Zabidi's name is also mentioned. He is chairman of Kuala Dimensi and is also Umno's treasurer. This is the same guy mentioned in Joceline Tan's article as one of the most eager to kow-tow to Khairy Jamaluddin's wish to take over the Umno Youth's throne.

Bail out! Bail out! Leslie Lopez, writing for Straits Times (Singapore), also has a field day on the crisis facing Malaysia's "most established port authority". According to Leslie, Kuala Dimensi has long links to several senior officials of Datuk Seri Abdullah's ruling Umno party and was originally awarded the development project at a cost of RM1.08 billion, which has ballooned to RM4.6 billion.
The report said Abdullah Ahmad's Cabinet has decided to bail out the company. This rescue will include a RM510 million payment this year to Malaysian banks, and the remainder in separate instalments between next year and 2010.
Read his piece here.

The shit has hit the fan.

    Ah, ha! I thot I did a little scoop in my earlier post on Leslie Lopez's report in the Spore Straits Times today (see my post in the "Son-in-law in Port Klang FTZ's fiasco" thread).

    Now, anyone wanna bet how quickly the provisions of the OSA will be invoked to cover up this fiasco?

    And, I think, that Leslie Lopez is based in KL. Will he be "invited" by the authorities for an "interview"?

    And will the Spore Straits Times and Business Times newspapers be sued for breaking this story?

    Like I said, stay tuned!

  2. Skilgannon!
    What would a blogger do without a poster like you! Thx for the alert. I had no idea that Leslie was working on the story.
    And yep, we'll stay tuned on this one. There are just too many personalities involved. We have read some Umno names - Azim, Faizal, Ismail Onn, the Kapar division chief.
    We are waiting to hear of some MCA names ...

    Good work, Nades and Terence. Wonder how the other papers are going to be able to avoid reporting the Port Klang Free Zone now.

    Bought the land for RM3 psf and then sold to PKA at RM25 psf, notwithstanding the government valuation was at RM10 psf.

    This is heinous!!!!

    Bet under the current administration, SEMUA OK!

    We can only hope God to take good care of whoever have a stake in that loot directly or indirectly.

  4. Ancient Mariner was a stalwart (I believe) in the Port Authority some years back. I am certain he can attest to the reserves that the PA had in his time, and how it was sodomised over and over again by this buggers! So much so that you and I are paying for the act! RM4.6B?? That can feed millions of poor!

  10. The government is more interested in hanging Wee Chee Meng than in this petty multi-billion ringgit mess.
    I wonder why journalists who ask Ministers for comments on Wee did not seek their take on this project?
    Or are they expected to ask only 'government friendly' questions?
    Why should foreigners join forces with a gang of thieves, bandits, plunderers and ringgit thirty vampires?
    Take my word, the government will come out with a spin, to demonize Jafza and defend the UMNO thieves.

    Hey Rocky, this case reeks of cronyism, self-interest to make a quick buck, and now, a bail out from the administration? Isn't that tax-payers money anyway? Money that could be used for new schools, hospitals etc?

    RM1.08 billion to RM4.6 billion? Heads must roll.

    There ought to be a monopolies commission or equivalent to investigate these dealings through and through and name all parties who have interests in these large projects. Looks like the NCER and the Kelantan/Terrengganu developments announced recently are nothing but pre-election sweeteners to charm the locals, I just hope the locals can see through these offers of progress as another white elephant.

    If I am not wrong, Chan Kong Choy was appointed Transport Minister in mid-2003. His predecessor resigned.

    For yet another "expose" on things Malaysian, check out the report "Can everyone really fly now?" by Pauline Ng in the Spore Business Times ( paper today, Aug 13.

    In her report, Ms Ng said: "According to news reports, the new budget terminal will be built much nearer to the KLIA. It is expected to be completed in 2010. Some reports have said that it would be built on a 'private finance initiative' and at an estimated cost of RM1.7 billion".

    She also said: "It remains to be seen now whether the proposed new LCCT can be good for more than three years. In the euphoria of AirAsia's and Malaysia's expanding role in the budget travel segment, the low point last week for many was the fact that barely 2 years into its existence, a RM108 million terminal was already seen to be inadequate.

    "That was all the more jarring, considering that no-frills travel is pretty much all about savings and ensuring that costs are kept as low as possible".

    I am reminded of what London Mayor Ken Livingstone said about Heathrow Airport recently. He called Heathrow Airport a "shame on London" and was reported to have said that Heathrow "is typical of the English short-termism, lack of planning, lack of investment".

    Sound familiar?

    Dear Rocky

    Guarantees by Govt whether implicit or explicit is not in the balance sheet . Suggest someone to do an analysis of how big this mess is should the Guarantees come into effect due to default of the respective counterparty. How will it hit the gov budget.

    You can start with the Term Sheet or offering documents in the SC website ...but must read the fine print on specific covenants especially potential "put" option to against the government.

    This is a problem which have been brewing for a long time... BNM should know about this

    What is the criteria for the gov to provide guarantee to private sector. How is the economic benefit considered for the gov to extend the so called guarantee...?

    One thing i dont understand is how in the world does a default by one company can create systematic risk to the banking system? Does not make any sense at all ...4.5 Billion is small compared to the outstanding loan in the banking system...unless one particular bank is overexposed ..then again they should have single customer limit to begin with...

    next question is it a direct loan or a bond? if direct loan what is the collateral ? if bond what is the right of bondholders in the event of default.....

    So folks put on ur thinking cap...why does the government need to bail out this company? Does it pose any systematic risk to the financial system? Is the project so strategic that it tantamount to failure of the Selangor Economic System.....i dont think so....

    In the market economy....companies are bound to fail and financial intermediary should understand the risk involved in financing such a venture....and government should not get involved apart from taxation incentive.....

    This is a classic case of good money chasing after bad money

    Rocky do ur thing n dig deeper please........

  24. we need the mega projects like IDR,NCE etc to boost the ekonomy, if not, we are facing retard economy growth, withou t this, what is the suggestion ?

  33. Bus Shelters
    Excerpted from Public Space Amenities: A Guide to their Design and Management of in Downtowns, Neighborhood Commercial Districts, and Parks, published by Project for Public Spaces.
    A good bus shelter is an essential part of any successful urban mass-transit system. What constitutes "good," however, depends upon your point of view. From the perspective of the city agency that is responsible for its management, a good shelter is one that has low maintenance requirements and is vandal-resistant. From the rider's point of view, an ideal shelter is one that allows visibility and easy access to the bus, is comfortable and convenient, provides clear information, and is safe.

    Both viewpoints are equally important to consider, because an unused shelter is a waste of money and an unnecessary maintenance problem. A well-designed, comfortable shelter can make waiting for a bus a pleasant -- and even interesting -- experience! Unfortunately, many poorly designed shelters also exist.

    To decide what type of shelter to use in a particular area requires an analysis of existing and anticipated conditions, as well as some knowledge of the characteristics of good shelter location and design. Information about each factor is included below.

    Is a bus shelter needed?
    Where should it be located?
    How should it be designed?
    How should it be maintained and managed?
    Are there funding options?
    There are some general guidelines that should be followed in deciding whether or not a bus shelter is needed. Situations where a shelter is required include the following: neighborhoods where buses run infrequently; commercial areas with frequent service and high levels of ridership; areas where security is a problem; neighborhoods where there are many older or infirmed people; and areas where inclement weather is common.

    Good locations for bus shelters are near retail stores that have products related to bus riders' needs (e.g. bakery, flower shop, newsstand, etc.) and are open late at night; near office building entrances within view of a security guard; near street vendors; and in conjunction with other amenities such as telephones, benches, and so on.

    Specific guidelines for locating bus shelters are noted below:

    Bus shelters near intersections should be set back from the crosswalk approximately 10 feet to avoid conflicts with pedestrian traffic. If a bus stop is on the far side of an intersection, the shelter should be located a minimum of 40 feet from the crosswalk to allow adequate room for the bus to stop.

    A distance of 3 feet should be allowed between the bus shelter and the curb for free movement in boarding and exiting from the bus.

    Bus shelters should have their long side parallel to the sidewalk to minimize interference with pedestrian traffic.

    Exit and entry openings should be oriented so that people are protected from the wind. However, it is important to keep the side of the shelter facing the street open to allow passengers to board or exit the bus easily.

    Elements such as information kiosks or vendors that can obstruct the view of oncoming buses should be located "down-stream" from the shelter.
    A bus shelter should be designed to reflect the city in which it is located. This can be accomplished through the use of local materials and by the design details. Often standard shelters can be adapted to reflect the unique characteristics of the area in which they are located.

    Within this context there are four general qualities that any well-designed bus shelter should have. These qualities, described below, are visibility, accessibility, comfort and convenience, and information.

    People must be able to see the bus coming. Poorly designed shelters that obstruct views of approaching buses will force people to leave the shelters to watch for oncoming buses.

    People must be able to board the bus conveniently. To many riders this is the most important aspect of a bus shelter's design, because people like to be close to the point where the bus door will open so they will be sure of getting on. The shelter should not obstruct this process of boarding.

    Comfort and Convenience
    Shelters should provide a place to sit, protection from weather, and a feeling of safety and security.

    People need to know when a bus will arrive and where it will go. This is especially important for people who are unfamiliar with the service, such as tourists.

    Side Panels

    The following design guidelines can be used in designing or selecting a bus shelter:

    Side panels should generally not be used on the curbside of the shelter, except on very narrow streets with heavy traffic. If side panels are used on the curbside, an opening at least 3 feet wide needs to be provided to allow people access to the buses.

    Side panels should be mounted 3 inches off the ground so that debris will not collect inside the shelter. If more than 3 inches off the ground, they will not keep out drafts.

    Side panels should be made of clear glass, as noted below.

    A pitched roof should be used to prevent the collection of rain, snow and debris.
    Seating and Leaning Rails

    The amount of seating should be based on both the number of people who will use the shelter and the amount of time people will spend waiting. Where people wait for a long time, or where the shelter is used by the elderly or infirm, more scaling is generally needed than in areas where the bus comes more frequently.

    Leaning rails should be provided whenever possible. A wood rail at 3 feet 6 inches above the ground is best.

    Lights should be housed in a protective casing to reduce vandalism, and directed so that they illuminate the waiting and boarding areas. New York City's shelters are lighted at night by backlit advertising panels at an intensity of 20 lumens per square foot.

    Schedule, route information, and a map should be located in or next to bus shelters but not so that the view of the oncoming bus is blocked.


    The size of a bus shelter depends on the climate as well as the number of people who are expected to use it. (In order to determine the expected use, count the number of people who currently use a particular stop at different times of day and week.)

    Where there are large fluctuations between peak and off-peak use, a bus shelter can be designed with leaning rails, overhangs, and seating areas outside of the shelter to accommodate the differences.
    To be durable, bus shelters should be composed of structural members and inset panels, not snap-together "curtain walls" or decorative sections that are easily vandalized. In general, a steel structure is best. Wood is not as durable and concrete tends to be monolithic in appearance and tends to discolor and soil easily. For flexibility, installation should be by means of bolted attachment rather than by casting in place.

    There should be few movable parts, as they are easily broken. Parts should be easy to reorder and replace and should not require removal of other parts or sections for access to make the repair. Materials should be vandal, graffiti, weather, salt, and rust resistant, and easy to clean. A protective finish can be applied to steel in cases where salt damage is severe. Herculite glass side panels (used in New York City) resist scratching, are strong, shatter-resistant, and easy to clean. Plastic or Plexiglas is not recommended as it tends to discolor and scratch easily, reducing visibility from the shelter. The manufacturer of the bus shelter should be consulted as to the best combination of materials and finishes for a particular area.

    In addition to these specific issues it is also important to consider the bus shelter within the context of the overall transit system. Cooperation is necessary, therefore, between the city, the transit company, and any other parties involved in the maintenance and management of the shelter. This requires a commitment by the city to a high level of maintenance and management. There is considerable research that shows that a well-maintained bus shelter will be better respected and less subject to vandalism and other abuses than one that is poorly maintained. A good maintenance program is also contingent upon a bus shelter that is designed to minimize the amount of litter collection, cleaning, and minor repairs needed, as was described previously. A good maintenance program should include a program for monitoring the use of bus shelters once they are installed.

    Alternative financing mechanisms for bus shelters are becoming increasingly popular in many cities. Using private contractors to construct and maintain the shelters is one way to obtain and maintain shelters al no public cost. Private contractors typically use revenues generated by advertisements on the shelters. If this method of financing is used, it is especially important that the design, locations, and amenities that are to be provided within the shelter be specified in the contract between the city and the contractor.

    A Bernama report carried in the Spore Straits Times ( today, Aug 14, said that the PM had said that he would not comment on questions over the Port Klang Free Trade Zone project until he receives a report from the Transport Minister.

    As per the Bernama report, the PM said: "I will have Kong Choy tell me what is happening".

    Will the PM ask Jafza to give him an independent report on what had transpired?

    On a separate note, the Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (Jafza) is owned by Dubai World. Dubai World is wholly owned by the Dubai govt and was founded in July 2006 under a decree by Dubai's ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum.

    I think that the Port Klang Authority and Kuala Dimensi didn't quite know who they were messing with when they decided to take on Jafza.

    I have no doubt that Jafza has already submitted reports on the Port Klang Free Trade Zone project to the top bosses of Dubai World, and that, perhaps, Sheikh Mohammed has already been briefed on the subject.

    Imagine - a subtly-worded message from the Sheikh, and Malaysia's reputation would plummet amongst the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council), of which Dubai is a key member. Which would no doubt dent Malaysia's ambition to a leading global hub for Islamic banking and FDI from the Middle East.

    Perhaps, the Sheikh would even pick up the phone and ask the PM just what the heck is going on.

    Or maybe not. In Arab culture, it is not the practice to cause your friends to lose face. Nevertheless, the Arabs have long memories......

  37. Will heads fall on the fiasco?
    Will there be excuses to say?
    “It is not my faults
    I wasn’t involved”

    Will there be responsibility here?
    Will the government of AAB keep quiet?
    It is not something to hide
    This is a big chuck of money
    The taxpayers have a right to know!

    And don’t tell us is under OSA, please!
    It is so ridiculous to hear a judge said it
    They are paid by the people
    For the people and the country
    Yet the taxpayers are kept in the dark

    Now the juices seeps under the belly
    It makes a trail so long every eye sees
    Perhaps the workers put up banners
    “This is under OSA
    Nobody has right to say
    Keep off the perimeter
    Unless you want to be a hit”

    Then the Cabinet decides
    Bail out this project
    Save the cronies
    The flags direct
    No head shall fall

    Lips service on accountability
    Words of transparency
    It sounds so hollow
    When money matters flow

    Will the ruling elite change?
    On the goose laying the golden egg?
    The people must decide
    The power in their hands
    To vote wisely
    And for heaven sake don’t listen
    To the coated honey speeches!
    So fight for change
    Let it be known we can do it
    Send these goblok leaders
    To the grazing field

    As the PM, did he not instruct his ministers to inform him about all important developments in the country. Why must he ask, when he should rightly be informed about the unfolding fiasco, especially of such an enormous sum of money involved. He is running the country, is it not. Or am I wrong.

    I wonder whether PM really is unaware of what is happening, especially when his Cabinet already decided to bail out the company. When a decision is made, the cabinet must have talk about it for some time, and yet PM is right now just asking for an explanation. This is not right, especially asking for an explantion after you have decided to bail out the company.

    PM still honeymoonlah, All his answers no substance lah.

    What do you expect from a person who always says 'i don't know'?

    Maybe he should start saying I will ask "my SIL @ Monkey king @ su moo kong @ Oxbrain @ 4th floor moroons" in future?

    The defacto PM @ SIL will definitely know all.

    what if he and his family members are part of this defrauding scheme? who is to jump then? let me put it another way. why would he let his credibility be under questioned if there are no benefits accrued to him? think about it.

    Saya terkejut sangat dengan pandangan - ..KITA PERLU BANYAK KAN MANUSIA MACAM KJ DALAM UMNO..

    ya, Melayu macam KJ akan kaya, tapi kekayaan itu hanya akan dielsploitasikan olehnya dan Melayu lain takkan dapat manfaat.

    Kebanyakan orang Cina kaya mendermakan duit untuk bina sekolah, I believe u always heard that. Tapi, yang pernah saya dengar pasal Melayu yang kaya, hanyalah berita tu di mana perkahwinan dengan kosnya beberapa juta tu dilangsungkan. give me any example yang Melayu yang kaya memang membantu masyarakat Melayu.

    So, please, think maturely. Yang salah tu memang harus diperbetulkan.
