CASSA CHIEF: DECLARE WAR ON THE BLACK ECONOMY!

Dr Jacob George is president and legal adviser to the Consumers Association of Subang and Shah Alam (Cassa)

‘Let me tell the ‘self righteous’, the puritans among us, those high moral bashers and hypocrites that it is just not about  betting and gambling but the well entrenched and syndicated human trafficking of women, children (for prostitution), human trafficking of men, money laundering, drug trafficking and even terrorism-related activities!

In some countries government changes through the direct manipulation of the black economy!’ – Dr Jacob George


DECLARE WAR ON THE BLACK ECONOMY GOVT URGED!

Though some quarters put the figure of the “black economy” in Malaysia to around RM10bil, I believe through discussions with my intelligentsia that the figure is far higher and around the region of RM57 Billion!

And as such join the chorus urging the government to address this matter before the ‘underworld and its black economy’ govern the nation directly, indirectly or through proxies as we have seen in several Latin American countries and the African continent!

Let me tell the puritans among us, those high moral bashers and hypocrites that it is just not about  betting and gambling but the well entrenched and syndicated human trafficking of women, children (for prostitution), human trafficking of men, money laundering, drug trafficking and even terrorism-related activities!

In some countries government changes through the direct manipulation of the black economy!

So therefore the time is right for the government to intervene and declare an all out war against this black economy and the various high powered figures behind them!

I must congratulate my dear friend and Home Minister Hishammuddin Tun Hussein (above left) for driving this action without fear or favor!

I must also congratulate dear friend Mohd Bakri Zinin (above) the Director of the Criminal Investigation Department for a job done well!

It is because of their dedicated, professional and vigilant efforts that we have had several recent successes in our war against the black economy!

Syabas!

But for this to continue and to succeed with the arrest of the ‘big fish’ – we need to provide vital feedbacks and intelligence to the ‘boys in blue’ and this must be done professionally and with speed!

We need to work closely with our ASEAN friends, INTERPOL, the FBI and Scotland Yard as it is the concern of all and it can only be addressed with success if there is cross border cooperation, intelligence gathering and sharing, joint operations and networking!

We need to work with the financial institutions and others who can provide ‘expert opinion’ on money transfers, on the money trail and other modes used!

MAY GOD BLESS OUR WAR AGAINST THIS SCOURGE THAT MUST BE ELIMINATED!

 Our campaign against RACISM AND GENOCIDE of all forms!
