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!
