A day after YB Wee's article appeared, I posted a comment which consists of even more questions. I wrote:
Yesterday, a corporate leader told me that he was offered the netbook and out of curiosity filled up a form and sent it in. To his disbelief, he was offered RM500 in cash for his trouble. But no Netbook!
Please do, bring this up in Parliament. They dont call you Yang BerWeebawa for nothing.
Re Tuan Syed Akbar’s comment on the RM1 billion netbook scheme, actually the first phase of the scheme involving over 100,000 netbooks for rural folks is under way. Second phase involving 500,000 netbooks is coming soon. Questions to ask are:
1. Who are getting the contracts to supply the netbooks for phase 1 and phase 2.
2. What is the progress of phase 1 (ie how many recipients of the netbooks have sold it back to Low Yatt for a few hundred ringgit?)
3. Has the MCMC been churning out new licenses to companies without track records?
4. In view of the Dino Rais’ civil suit, has the MCMC investigated to ensure that no other family members of those who are in position to make decisions about the netbook scheme are involved with the companies selected?
And YB, the biggest question…..
5. Is not the USP fund for the government to address the “digital divide” by building infra and providing education and training? Who gave the directive to use the RM 1 billion to buy netbooks?
YB, there is now in excess of RM 5 billion in the USP. That is something of pkfz proportions!
Thank you, YB.
The MCMC pays out RM1000 for each netbook!
If the MACC doesn't think the above are good enough reasons for them to muscle in, there's another compelling reason why the MCMC and its Minister, Rais Yatim, must be investigated by the MACC. This has something to do with the MCMC's on-going investigation into me and fellow blogger Big Dog following the police report lodged against me on Oct 12.
