'Is the ex-Finance Minister II also being investigated?"


"YAB PM perlu memberi penjelasan kenapakah sehingga kini En Hasbie (Satar) belum di dakwa di Mahkamah atau pun kes rasuah ini telah ditutup walaupun SPRM telah memperolehi bukti-bukti yang mencukupi dan juga adakah siasatan juga dijalankan terhadap bekas Menteri Kewangan II." - YB Wee Choo Keong, Konsensus Bebas, 21 June 2010 in Parliament


Nor Mohamed Yakcop, the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, is the ex-Finance Minister II mentioned by YB Wee Choo Keong in his highly anticipated speech in Parliament yesterday. This was the first time YB Wee had spoken since quitting PKR to become an Independent and formed the Konsensus Bebas.

YB Wee's focus on Hasbie is interesting and most probably not incidental. Just last week Norza Zakaria, who also used to serve Nor Mohamed Yakcop as political secretary when NMY was Finance Minister II, was acquitted by a magistrate court in Temerloh of corruption charges.

NMY, also known affectionately as Top Cat by his worshipers, is best remembered for losing billions in forex trading when he was with Bank Negara. He was also at one time linked to the Abrar Group, a company closely associated with former Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim. NMY earned the Top Cat's nickname for his ability to survive. He has served as a key aide to three Prime Ministers - Mahathir, Abdullah and now Najib.

Read the rest of YB Wee Choo Keong's parliamentary speech yesterday (Mon 21/6/10) here.

Support YB Wee Choo Keong! The rakyat want to know what's the outcome of the investigation ! Tak kira siapa, jika ada cukup bukti, dakwa mereka di mahkamah !

Don't worry bro Nor Yakcop

Let them investigate you.

The ending is predictable.

They will say not enough evidence against you.

They will appeal : "Those with proof please come forward and assisst us"

Even if they charge you, you will be found not guilty.

Don't worry my friend. Be happy. Enjoy what you have got. You have had enough to live for another 300 years.

Bro, Black Midas has now penetrated Rosmah. His Penang crony Kemuncak Holdings has just got contract for cleaning & maintenance of JPM offices. They hv sapu prison, univ & hosp maintenance contracts. Over the years he has put his cronies everywhere including a mamak Hamzah Kasim in NEAC. Hamzah is a HR and Human Capital consultant. Black Midas wrote the 10 Msia Plan where Talent Corp is mentiond specifically. Talent Corp is Hamzah & Black Midas outfit to fleece gomen money to scout for malaysian expats o'seas. Bohong. Black Midas corrupted. Rosmah now with him.

I am really puzzled which part of this that Najib do not understand?

To say that this is politic, and he understands it better...well maybe...!!??

But to retain team members whom are clearly a bunch of national liabilities cannot be considered a STROKE OF POLITICAL BRILLIANCE.

If we do so, then TUN MUSA’s pathetic portrays of Badawi's ELEGANT OF SILENT should become our national motto!

At first BNM and Mahathir denied it when Lim Kit Siang raised the issue of a RM6 billion "hole" in BNM's Balance Sheet.

Later, under pressure from the Opposition, Mahathir was forced to confirm it, MNY was sacked (but amzingly was re-employed by RHB Bank) and BNM's Governor, Jaafar Hussein resigned. But many have said that the actual US$ forex speculating loss, for which MNY was labelled Mamak Robokop Forex Loosecannon, was closer to RM$30 billion. Neither the Govt nor BNM has ever cleared this matter up!

There has also been a police report against MNY who as director of a Plc was alleged to have misused its funds.

With so many allegations against him, ranging from incompetency and fraud to CBT, money laundering and intefering in the appointment of CEO's to GLC's, I wonder why Najib does not seem to have the will power to put MNY to pasture for good?? He's a huge embarassment to the Govt, party and nation!!

Wee has been one of the few quality MPs around in both government and opposition ranks with his grasp of issues and his understanding of policy formulation and implications as well as his precise delivery of those concerns. A rarity amongst Chingkies, I concede.

I occasionally visit his blog even when he was in the PR gutter and was often impressed by his solid arguments and disclosures based on facts on such diverse issues like FOMEMA, Pantai, AirAsia etc. I may have disagreed with him on certain issues but overall, he stands out as at least an MP worth his salt who is factual in his argument. Given his sharp grasp of facts, it isnt surprising that he left the scumbags whose ranks include pathetically silly low quality wannabes like Gwo Burne, Nurul Izzah, Yusmadi (who was once fined by the Bar Council), the empty headed PASsites and of course the uber racist DAP chingkies who have nothing to offer except garbage. In any case, he wouldnt have made any headway given his intellect and events pertaining to him leaving attest to the fact that critical thinking, informed discourse, independent thought and innovative ideas are not welcome in the PR gutter lest it upsets the vested interests of those seeking to perpetuate family political oligarchies. Pity, their followerrs are too intellect vacuumed to notice this. Born losers!! hahahaha

Apart from not holding my breath with regard to NMY. 2 things come to fore. I have commented elsewhere as to why based on ethics and corporate responsibility Musa and co should relinquish their seats on the SD BOD. It would be good if the government institutes a RCI into the shenanigans at SD or at least issue a White Paper on the whole fiasco but again I am not holding my breath especially after that appointment of the FELDA donkey which is a "masterstroke" of moronic proportions. But then again, with so many great superduper advisers around, why should we care. I would hazard to wager that Petronas will also be down the SD road two or three years from now.

Online gambling in Wee's speech is interesting as it raise two issues, ethical and financial.

Ethical: I would rather think that this is a non-ssue as there are safeguards in place to prevent Muslims from gambling. In any case, within a secular socio-political dimension, Muslims should use self-restraint as a tool as gambling is expressly forbidden in Islam and there is no quibbling about that. Since the argument leviatates along the same lines as that of alcohol's,the same rules should apply and I dont think Nik Aziz and his ilk should have any misgivings about this given their "principled" stand with regard to alcohol as Wee succintly pointed out. As, gambling, like alcohol is provided for and is even encouraged in belief systems other than Islam, it should be allowed subject to similar regulations applicable to alcohol. After all we are in the age of protecting minority rights over majority principles, right and it wont do to trample on the sensitivities of others especially when they are guaranteed vote banks!!like those infamous safe deposit boxes...hahahahahaha

Part B

Financial : a peek at tha Spore's revenue streams since 2006 reveals that gaming taxes amounted to roughly S$1.7B in 2009 subject to further increment with the addition of the Casino revenue stream.

http://www.singstat.gov.sg/stats/themes/economy/ess/essa151.pdf

That is roughly RM4.1B, a huge amount that when extrapolated into the Malaysian revenue stream would amount to 3% of revenue. I am sure the bulk of this source is from Malaysia and it would be good if we can retain that here rather than facilitating such leakages through silly and hypocritical polemics like the one gripping us.Imagine the impact of legalised sports betting on overall gambling reveue with a fresh influx of punters thus broadening the catchment area and accruing more revenue in the long run. Further, it will sound the death knell of the infernal ah long business.

Moreover as WCK succintly elaborated, there are social benefits accrueable from such a move as well as the employment opportunities. Only those with vested interests in illegal betting and those whose parties gains from feeds from such sources would raise a hue and cry over such a move and we have a pretty good idea as to who they are given Hassan Ali's failed attempt in invoking Islamic law to ban alcohol in Shah Alam.

If there are any doubts regarding the morality of utilisng such "haram" gains, rest assured that Nik Aziz's fatwa should suffice. After all, Kelantan has elevated itself to the rank of the second poorest state in Malaysia from bottom rank through the 'berkat' of such revenue and Malaysia can do no worse by following suit.

Anon 8.19 AM may be sarcastic. But many people may not know sarcasm. Including the apparently bloody corrupt Akop fellow.

He is not yet found guilty. So he is only "apparently" corrupt for now. But so much is said about him being corrupt. Here, there and everywhere. So, he might be a bloody fellow.

The billions lost in forex trading. How doe we know there was no hanky panky even there? This is a big bucks fellow. He is said to be handling mainly big projects. The commission spoken is also said to be big. Up to 30%. If so, he's also a crazy fellow.

For goodness sake, MACC, whack him up properly with full and unrestrained investigations. It is very demoralizing to keep hearing about him being linked to corrupt and irregular cases. Forget about irking Najib. People spoke about living in glass houses and AG "preferring" not to charge or deciding not to "prefer" charges or whatever lingo. But do your job, get all the evidence and present them.

paktam said...

MACC was formed by the previous PM, thus all the officers in all states are his people. That is why all the previous PM's cronies will get will never get charged or will be aqquitted. Giving more powers to these officers is a sure way to bring back Pak Lah and his cronies. Perhaps this is what Anwar wants.

Sometimes I am compelled to agree with you!

The penchant of PKR snatching defeat from the jaws of victory reminds me of the current antics of the Republican Party in the US vis-a-vis the Tea Partiers.

On your views on legalised gambling, the next time you are in Singapore (if you can stomach visiting a repressed haven for the global elite), take a look at the busloads of Malaysians disembarking at the Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) IR daily!

They have made it even easier now by setting up a coach terminal at RWS to handle coaches travelling to and from Malaysia.


Who needs the KTM railway station at Tanjong Pagar? Go to RWS and take a coach trip to Malaysia. And take a spin at the baccarat tables before you board the coach!

This is pragmatism carried to the nth level.

Would that we in Malaysia are just as pragmatic (oops, bad grammar!). But that would be asking too much, wouldn't it?

I think the Bantai keliling speech by YB Wee showed that the 81 Pakatan Opposition MPs are now obsolete.

The Pakatan lead by Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim courtesy of the DAP and the defacto Opposition Leader Kit Siang are so hung up on their dream to Putrajaya that they indulge in too much politicking that they forgot to be good and useful Opposition MPs.

Well done YB Wee, keep the speeches coming.

He is the monetarist that Mahathir depended upon pegging the ringgit.Hence, he was appointed as Advisor to the Governor of Bank Negara. Of course Zeti envies him !

This Wee Chee Keong is indeed a shit-stirrer.His first achievement was capturing MBf Loy's car parked in the Lord President's parking lot in courtyard.
Tunku Abdul Rahman legalised horse betting. Tun Razak legalised Genting style betting.Mahathir legalised Tanjung, Btoto including car racing. Pak Lah legalised boat racing ala Monsoon Cup. So now najib has to legalise football betting.
All forms of gambling is haram for muslims. Tunku also legalised the breweries. It is also haram for the muslims.It is wrong of him to say PAS should accept football betting.Islam also forbids eating pork.Yet it is licensed to breed pigs and trade. Two wrongs don't make a right as they say in Australia ; two Wongs don't make a White.What is good for the goose is also good for the gender.I mean Islamic teachings are good for all.
Let's stick to halal lifestyle. No pork, no liquor , no gambling, no prostitution. Enjoy life without these vices.

paktam: You echo my sentiments exactly. Only, I would extend it further by adding that MACC is also commissioned to cleanse the opposition for Anwar's sake so as to facilitate the future ascension of the SILhoutte. That boy has been cock-a-hoop lately with his attacks on the terrorist detentions and attendant linkages, a fact harped upon by Anwar and his acolytes as also echoed by credibility-dead vermins like Haris Ibrahim((remember that lie on Rocky in January 2009)+ SILhoutte's absurd take on legalised betting that parrots Anwar's and Pas' line of thought is further evidemce his duplicitious nature. Wahhabis are lurking in different guises all over and Najib would do well to be mindful of this pernicious threat if he does not want to lose the plot.

It's indeed passing strange just how many Malaysians (including those of a certain ethnicity) are working in this "repressed haven", at jobs ranging from unskilled manual labour to banking and ICT professionals.

Perhaps a "repressed haven" with a strong currency (2 to 1) is preferable to the Shangri-la north of the Causeway? As they say, money talks, and in this case, it's definitely mine is bigger than yours!

On another point, I wonder just what "Rubicon" you are referring to? I, too, might mention "Armageddon" in the context of sacred cows being slaughtered, but that's another posting for another day.
