CONSUMERIST: PADAN MUKA – ANOTHER ‘USELESS’ AUDITOR GENERAL’S REPORT?

Dato Jacob George

‘the very top, people steal billions through negotiated overpriced contracts, armament, submarines and fighter jets, tanks, and other purchases and various other crooked deals like those with the IPPs (independent power producers).

After that, you have the second level who are able to steal tens of millions in a similar manner. Then you have a large number of people in the bloated public service who also steal in the same way by getting kickbacks.

But the amount stolen by each of them, although significant, is very much less than that stolen by the very top because they are given very much smaller amounts of money to spend. It is these comparatively small-time thieves that the AG (auditor-general) exposes annually.’ – Pemerhati

I cannot but wonder true or false the above statement – let us have an on-line poll! – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: PADAN MUKA – ANOTHER USELESS AUDITOR GENERAL’S REPORT?

I cannot but join the hundreds of thousands of Malaysian voters and consumers to ask honestly and humbly what is the use of releasing all this information found in the Auditor-General’s Report every year?

At the end of the day, as in past years, nothing is done about it.

As far as I can remember it is a yearly mantra but no one is prosecuted or even hauled up!

At one level our self appointed leaders with their own brand and version of ethics, accountability, governance and religiosity tell us ordinary folks to say nay to subsidies, to tighten our belts, while others associated to the gravy train, proxies, cronies, runners, and VVIP parasites spend millions on useless horses, sewing machines, folding chairs, screwdrivers, foreign trips, cost overrun hospital and highway construction and useless high tech toys!

Who really looks at the initial contract value, to whom it was awarded and sub-contracted to, which company is completing the job and what is the total price eventually and who facilitated the cost overruns and ballooning of the said costs?

As a dear friend, ‘Pemerhati’ whose comments I always admire stated quite rightly which actually is the situation in 1Malaysia today where ‘the very top, people steal billions through negotiated overpriced contracts, armament and other purchases and various other crooked deals like those with the IPPs (independent power producers).

After that, you have the second level who are able to steal tens of millions in a similar manner. Then you have a large number of people in the bloated public service who also steal in the same way by getting kickbacks.

But the amount stolen by each of them, although significant, is very much less than that stolen by the very top because they are given very much smaller amounts of money to spend. It is these comparatively small-time thieves that the AG (auditor-general) exposes annually.

Their bosses, the big-time thieves are obliged to close an eye to the theft by these thieves because the top level thieves rely on these people to steal in a big way. This will only end when the Malaysians, like the Arabs, decide to have a ‘Malaysian Spring’.

What Malaysia needs is godly upright men and women not political and religious pretender who are basically predators and opportunists having their fingers in the cookie pot!

CONSUMERIST: BLOGGERS ASKED WHY NOT USE YOUR MOTHERS/WIFE’S PHOTO INSTEAD?

Dato Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: BLOGGERS ASKED WHY NOT USE YOUR MOTHERS/WIFE’S PHOTO INSTEAD?

This is now international news when people in power and obsessed with power begin to realize they lay exposed for the lies that they perpetuate for political expediency!

Malaysian politicians are no different as can be seen by the criminal defamation of a child according to Malaysian law for a political agenda!

Interestingly and thank the ALMIGHTY for the now disclosure of that young woman depicted as the ‘victim of molest’ by the teenaged son of Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng expressing “shock” and “dismay” today for having been dragged into the matter.

The young lass 21, whose photograph was used by several Malaysian predator and political bloggers to depict a schoolgirl who was alleged molested, said she has in “not in any way been victimized” by the 16-year-old boy or his family!

If indeed this incident had taken place either in the US, Britain, Europe, Singapore – those hurling this baseless politically smeared allegations would have been indicted!

I am still waiting for indictments for several similar cases that raises many a question!

As a foreign diplomat friend asked me yesterday saying it looks like its 1Malaysia but 2 different laws being applied all for political expediency!

Even police permits approvals not spared raising many a question that will wreck havoc to the MCA, MIC, PPP, and other component parties chances to retain what few seats they have in the forthcoming elections!

In this case the alleged victim went further when she stated quite clearly that the only way in which her ‘modesty was outraged’ has been (through) the publication of her picture in connection with these scurrilous and unfounded rumours!

That did not stop these rabid dogs stating with vulgar justification only saleable in 1Malaysia that her photograph was used “to protect the identity of the real victim”.

My response why not use photographs of your mother, daughter, wife instead?

CONSUMERIST: MALAYSIA’S LYING BLOGS A NEW TERRORISM!

Dato Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: BLOG AND MORALLY DESPICABLE AND BARBARIC LIES!

As a father myself, I am shocked at the inaction of those who claim to protect us or of public interest!

I cannot but wonder what ever happened to common decency, ethics, values, decency especially from those who claim to be morally upright, spiritually a pillar for one’s religious belief!

I wonder what ever happened to simple convention to fight one’s battles as adults and not as cowards picking on soft targets!

What is next?

Accusing on a blog that a political opponent’s mother and wife, perhaps, even daughter of prostitution?

Has the fear of losing political power resulted in facilitating attacks against ‘all and sundry’ as long as a political agenda is achieved?

Strange that even those who have had an education abroad making statements directly and indirectly which is tasteless while by the same token not addressing greater evil within one’s own political household!

The silence from those who claim they are leaders is baffling!

Except for dear friend, Women, Family and Community Development Minister, Shahrizat Abdul Jalil who rightly stated that Children should not be dragged into political mud-slinging, regardless of whether it is the opposition being targeted or the BN government was the only honorable statement at the time of writing!

And yes – I am flabbergasted and appeal to Malaysia’ top cop the Inspector General of Police to act against bloggers accusing Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s 16-year-old son of molesting his classmate.

This is despicable and the anguish and mental trauma suffered by the young lad who according to Malaysian law is still a child must be enormous!

The law of criminal defamation should be used with immediately effect!

There is no room in a civilized country for such behavior!

This is a new form of terrorism and it must be addressed!

CONSUMERIST: MSC STATUS, FORCED EXPENSIVE TENANCIES AND VULGARITIES!

Dato Jacob George

‘MSC – World class my foot!

IF this is not another exercise to bleed honest investors and criminals with an agenda I do not know what is!’ – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: MSC STATUS, FORCED EXPENSIVE TENANCIES AND OTHER VULGARITIES!

We are told that MSC Malaysia Status is recognition by Government of Malaysia through the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC), for ICT and ICT-facilitated businesses that develop or use multimedia technologies to produce and enhance their products and services, and for process development.

It is also a mark of world-class service and achievement and your passport and gateway to a host of privileges granted by the Government of Malaysia to the business entities.

That MSC Malaysia Status is awarded to 3 types of business entities, each with a set of different application criteria and guidelines. The qualifying business entities are :-

1.   Private limited companies (i.e. Sendirian Berhad)

2.   Institutions of Higher Learning

3.   Incubators

My question IF indeed the intention is to initiate business development, to encourage the transformation of the Malaysian skyline for Hi-Tech innovations, making Malaysia a country spearheading breakthroughs into the IT frontier another silicon or Bangalore why are the following alleged to be happening:

1.   Companies forced to site themselves in very expensive neighbourhoods with extremely high rentals!

2.   If you thought that was bad what about forcing a 2 year tenancy agreement down the throat of entrepreneurs!

3.   High overheads all round!

4.   Legal costs that is shockingly high!

5.   Hidden costs both direct and indirect and seepages!

IF this is not another bleeding exercise I do not know what is!

Already there are allegations of scams, abuses, rip off, predators abusing the ‘seed fund’ after huge kick-backs are paid to facilitators!

Next week I will brief Member of Parliaments on this and ask them to raise questions on my discoveries on several discoveries and abuses!

I will also brief the Commercial Crime division and other enforcement agencies too.

If READERS have similar horror stories (with documentary proof) email me at drjacob@pd.jaring.my and I will include them in my dossier to the authorities and MPs!
