ACA to probe Majidee scandal

Anti-Corruption Agency called in to investigate "disappearance" of our last Southern bastion. A VIP with excellent ties with Singapore and who lives high up in the Johor political tree for more than a generation may be able to provide answers to what happened to the Majidee army camp.
I was told officers from the Agency will start questioning some people this week.

The VIP is likely not to be the only senior politician who will be called in IF the ACA finds a ground to launch a full-scale probe.

Majidee is not only a strategic point but also a place that holds great sentimental value to the Johor Palace. The land on which the Majidee camp stood was given to the Johor state government by the late grandfather of the current Johor Sultan, who had bought the land from an private estate. The military camp was built before the Second World War broke out. The Johor Military Force (the Sultan's own army) was disbanded by the British so that it could not be involved in the War. After the War, the British wanted a long-term lease from the State Government but were given a year-to-year lease. After Merdeka, the camp was occupied by the Ministry of Defence free-of-charge.

theSun's Nadeswaran and Terence Fernandez reported on the Majidee scandal late last month.

This is how it was done: A call from Singapore to a mole who is very close to the prime minister of Malaysia. The mole was asked to persuade the weak PM AAB to to tell him to turn Majidee Camp into a "profitable" venture, in other words to move it away. The weak PM then asked his trusted man Syed Hamid Albar to look into it. The rest is history right?! The VIP you mentioned is non other than Syed Hamid Albar right?!

Sir,

Why didn't super nationalist Shahrir Samad kick a fuss over Majidee Camp, is he also one of the VIP to be investigated? I hope so!

Hopeless in Seattle!

kayangsari said...

Hi Rocky,
Ha Ha Ha...another wayang kulit by the ACA and BN govt. We Malaysians are tired already. Tolong laa. Whatever happened to VK Lingam and the gang of five?. Sheer waste of public's money to fund the Royal Commission of Inquiry eh?. What bulls__t now?

apanama said...

I pray that the Sultan of Johore calls for a Royal Commission or Tribunal and sacks the 'Flippin Flopper' who thinks he is a leader.

Pak Lah ... UNDURLAH!!!!! You are NOT A LEADER lah, Pak Lah!

Even if you're made the Chief Imam of Kepala Batas you might issue and retract Fatwas' every other day.

I wonder where we should re-assign you lah..Pak Lah?

You are correct,Pasquale....almost.
Did you forget that the mole cannot get PM to approve without first getting the ok from the "guy who can enter Singapore without a passport but just his IC". You know who I mean!

see no evil hear no evil talk no evil said...

Who else but the International Trade and Industry Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Pak Shahrir Samad from Johore should know more about this....

Is there a new Petrol Station built up on top of the land????

Salam bro,

From what I read of Nades and Fernandez's report, the Majidee Camp privatisation is to help out KPRJ (Kumpulan Prasarana Rakyat Johor). KPRJ was set up by Abdul Ghani Othman and his Johor UMNO cronies years ago as a vehicle to channel profits/benefits from state privatisation projects back to the rakyat.

When it was first established, KPRJ went on to execute a number of high-profile projects. The one that sticks in my mind the most is their `Projek Jalan Kampung'. Today, KPRJ is a silent shadow compared to its heydays. I'm surprised that no journalist has ventured to find out more on how KPRJ is getting on nowadays.

Rocky,

Itu processed water from IWK can also be sold to singapore lah if they want to turn it to Nuwater.

Not only land lah. Cheap sale also can.

Bro,

Suruh ACA bawa shahrir jumpa Sultan Johor dan angkat sumpah kata dia tak involve. Berani ke atau tidak. Silap silap dia dan ACA kena campak kat dalam zoo buaya Tuanku.

Majidee Camp sits on prime land with housing development all around it. No wonder this is causing all these well connected politicians to salivate at the thought of converting the camp for commercial development.

Historical sentiments aside, perhaps the camp could be turned into a park for the residents of JB who are starved off decent parkland. Apart from the Sultan's Gardens, there are no other parks of decent size in the JB area. Once gazetted as such, the land can then be taken away from the grubby greedy hands of the politicians.

hi Bro,
the developer that supposed to develop the majidee camp is Zaman Land Sdn. Bhd. (anyone please probe in who is behind Zaman Land) and the development will be known as Kota South Key. They suppose to launch the 1st phase of the project in July, land clearance at the 1st phase has been made. The developer said that they have made an agreement with the Johor State Govt and KPRJ is the state govt vehicle. The developer's proposal is not impressive AT ALL. The July launch will be officiate by Najib.
It is sad to see that the land is developed to be a just another normal development, nothing "yang menyerlah" will be built there. Kalau nak ambil tanah tu pun..pembangunannya perlu lah gah juga.... ala2 twin tower..barulah Johor menjadi tarikan..dan kalu nak ambil tanah tu pun beradat lah sikit...pergilah ngadap Tuanku minta perkenan dulu...ini tak... main redah jek..mana lah orang tak marah..
dan kalo nak ambil tanah tu pun..pembangunan kem baru perlu dibuat simultaneously atau pun siapkan kem baru,,, baru take out the old camp..kalu tak pun just upgrade the old majidee camp...it is a shame that the camp is ini shabby condition.
Btw dengar crita the complainant to ACA is from the istana itself and that's why investigation got moving.....

I can only throw up my hands and shrug my shoulders each time I hear the ACA is investigation a case involving a senior BN politician.
As sure as the sun rises, nothing will come out of this investigation. Do you think these lowly civil servants from ACA dare interrogate these mighty ministers?
Even if they find evidence, do you think the AG will charge them?
It seems Singapore moles are all over the country.

Chow Kit Cowboy said...

The Kiwis have their war dance the "haka" and I hear those previously based at the Majidee Camp too had their own war dance to welcome VIPs. It goes like this:

"Majidee, Majidee, ah-oh-ah,
Majidee, Majidee, sis-boom-bah,
Ah-oh-ah, sis-boom-bah,
Majidee, Majidee, nah-nah-nah!"

With the appropriate hand signals.

Can somebody confirm?

Old Fart said...

But just like the so called investigation of the Securities Commission's senior officers...all these announcements of "commencing investigations" is becoming a bit of a joke really. Its like the foreplay that gives you a hard on. you are supposed to stop at that.But a lot of people go on and jerk it off...

Rocky, here's ANOTHER scandal... it shows how fearful the judiciary was of a former prime minister who bullied and used threats against these judges (I believe a certain prime minister who is one of your favourite politicians?):
