TMJ Belasah Najib Dan Felda United..

TMJ 'gerun' pada skuad Najib

Tengku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim menyifatkan saingan JDT untuk meraih gelaran juara Liga Super musim ini bakal berlangsung sengit.

Antara lain, kata beliau, pasukannya perlu berdepan dengan skuad Felda United yang dianggapnya memiliki kelebihan sebagai 'pasukan perdana menteri'.

"Mana saya boleh lawan, ini pasukan Datuk Seri Najib (Razak). JDT pasukan yang kecil saja, jadi saya rasa Felda mempunyai peluang yang sangat baik.

"Bagaimanapun, saya bangga kerana saya tidak menggunakan wang kerajaan yang sepatutnya milik rakyat untuk membina sebuah kelab bola sepak.

"Saya tidak membina stadium menggunakan wang peneroka atau wang dari kontraktor yang melobi bagi mendapatkan projek di dalam Felda," katanya dalam satu wawancara disiarkan di Facebook rasmi JDT sebentar tadi.

Seleweng dana orang miskin

Selepas 15 perlawanan JDT kini berada di puncak Liga Super dengan pungutan 39 mata, meninggalkan Felda United di tempat kedua dengan perbezaan dua mata.

Tunku Ismail berkata, Felda ditubuhkan oleh bapa Najib Allahyarham Tun Abdul Razak untuk membasmi kemiskinan.

Bagaimanapun menurutnya hari ini wang yang sepatutnya digunakan oleh peneroka dibelanjakan secara sewenang-wenangnya untuk kontraktor tertentu Felda.

Ia juga dakwa TMJ membolehkan beberapa individu yang memegang jawatan tinggi Felda 'membuat wang'.

"Ini adalah kes yang jelas penyelewengan dana yang diperuntukkan untuk golongan miskin. Saya bangga dengan kelab yang saya telah bina dan terkenal di Asia Tenggara.

"JDT diiktiraf di peringkat global, di mata dunia. JDT dibiayai oleh penaja dan juga para pelabur yang melabur di negeri Johor," jelasnya.

Tambah beliau, Najib diharap boleh memberi sedikit nasihat kepada pihak yang bertanggungjawab.

"Wang kerajaan mesti digunakan untuk kebaikan rakyat dan keutamaan perlu diberikan kepada rakyat.

"Saya amat berbangga dengan Kerajaan Johor dan saya memuji mereka atas kerja keras dan dedikasi mereka terhadap rakyat," jelasnya.

‘Commercialisation of ketum trees against Poisons Act’

The commercialiasation of ketum trees is not relevant as it is against Section 30(3) of the Poisons Act 1952 which has listed its leaves among prohibited properties, said Perlis deputy police chief ACP Noor Mushar Muhammad.
He said police did not agree with the proposal by several parties to grow ketum trees on a commercial scale.
He said this was what happened in the Golden Triangle (on the Myanmar border), where according to him it was initially transformed into opium plantation for medicinal purposes, but it did not turn out as what had been planned.
Furthermore, Noor Mushar said as the commercialisation would involve large quantities, it was feared that there would be negative implications, be it in the short or long term.

He was speaking to the reporters after officially opening the 46th anniversary of Police Cadet Corps for the state level.
He was asked to comment on among others the request for approval from Risda chairperson Zahidi Zainul Abidin to grow ketum trees on a commercial scale to help increase income of farmers.
Perlis Menter Besar Azlan Man echoed Zahidi Zainul’s views saying he was of the opinion that ketum trees can be grown commercially if scientifically proven to have medicinal properties and there was high demand for the leaves abroad.

Rahman Dahlan: DOJ should have talked to 1MDB first

The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) should at least have the courtesy to contact 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) to listen to their side of the story rather than only based its reports on the online news website (Sarawak Report), said Barisan Nasional (BN) strategic communications director Abdul Rahman Dahlan today.
Describing it as unbecoming for United States Attorney-General Loretta Lynch to use such a strong language in a situation when she was unsure whether there was a case or not, he said ‘a charge had not been decided’ giving a prejudice view against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, the Malaysian government and 1MDB.
"When we read the 136-page document, we find that it was based on the Sarawak Report which has a heavy political agenda against the government, BN and prime minister. So, our concern is why the DOJ of the US (United States) did not call 1MDB to verify. At least get the otherside of the story.
"That is the only question. Why you go to the court and tell the whole world of your story when it is not completed," he said after attending the Economic Planning Unit's (EPU) Hari Raya open house in Putrajaya.
The DOJ had recently filed civil lawsuits to seize assets acquired with money allegedly misappropriated from 1MDB, the government investment fund.
Meanwhile, Abdul Rahman, who is the minister in the prime minister's department responsible for the EPU, said the prime minister had repeatedly emphasised that he was not involved and that public funds were not involved.

"What happens now is an allegation. Several individuals have been alleged to have taken or stolen 1MDB funds. It is an allegation by the DOJ," he said, adding that the DOJ was taking the opportunity to hit the country, government, prime minister by using very rude language.
On the group linking Najib to the DOJ allegation, Abdul Rahman said if the DOJ had any proof to drag the prime minister, then his name would be stated in the DOJ document.
"Try and show where Najib's name had appeared... whereas several other names had been stated in the document," he said.

‘Prices of essential goods here cheaper than in three SEA countries’

The price of essential goods in Malaysia is much cheaper than those in three other countries in South-East Asia, namely Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines, said Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin.
He said the latest survey conducted in the Philippines also revealed that the overall price of petrol, diesel and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in Malaysia was 60 percent lower than in the three countries.
Meanwhile, the price of raw materials such as chicken, fish, meat and dairy products in the country was between 33 percent and 19 percent cheaper, he added.
“This proves that when the government is chanting slogans to help the people, this (helping the people) is what has been done.
“So, the issue of the government does not know how to control prices of goods as raised by the opposition should not arise. Opposition leaders should go and check for themselves the prices of goods in other countries,” he told reporters at the ministry’s Consumerism and Management Sector Aidilfitri open house in Putrajaya today.
Hamzah said his recent visit to the Philippines was the third of its kind after visiting Thailand and Indonesia to survey the prices of goods in those countries.
He said the full report on the survey was presented to the cabinet today.
Meanwhile, Hamzah said a massive nationwide operation was underway to combat ‘scratch-and-win’ syndicates that had become rampant lately.

He said the operation, led by the Royal Malaysia Police, which had started last month was aimed at eradicating the syndicate right down to the roots, including the ringleader.
“This problem has been going on for years, but we think it is the police who have the expertise and can help us (the ministry) to arrest the syndicates’ ringleaders,” he said.
Hamzah was commenting on the latest tactic used by the scratch-and-win syndicates that were now in cahoots with employees of financial institutions to facilitate personal loan application of victims.

Felda taking money from the poor, alleges TMJ

The Crown Prince of Johor, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, better known as TMJ for the Malay acronym of his royal title, has accused the Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) of taking money meant for the people to enrich contractors and high ranking company officials.
“Felda was established by the late Abdul Razak Hussein to eradicate poverty. However, today, money meant for the settlers are being spent unnecessarily to enrich certain contractors within Felda and also allowing a few people holding high post in Felda to make money.
“This is a clear case of taking money from the poor,” he said in a posting on the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page.
The prince stressed that government money must be used for the good of the people and priority must be given to the people.
“I hope Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak can offer some advice to the parties responsible,” he added.
The prince said this when responding to questions on how he thinks the Johor team, which he oversees, ranks against their contender for the Malaysian Super League title, Felda United.
“I think it’s going to be tough and they have an advantage. How you expect us to compete with Najib’s team? Joking.... We are only a small club. Hence, I reckon Felda have a very good chance,” was his initial answer before switching gears to bombard the rival team.

“However, I am proud that I am not using the government’s money which belongs to the people to build a football club. I am not building a stadium using money meant for the settlers or money from contractors lobbying for jobs within Felda,” alleged the prince.
He reasoned that to him, even the police and armed forces should not be fielding teams as they are also funded by the government and will need to dip into public coffers to find funding.
“I am proud with the club I have built and is well known in South-East Asia. JDT is recognised globally, in the eyes of the world. JDT is funded by sponsors as well as investors who invests in the state of Johor,” he concluded. - Mkini

Najib: NSC Act ‘misinterpreted’ by fearmongers

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has accused politically-motivated fearmongers of deliberately misinterpreting newly-introduced security laws, especially the National Security Council (NSC) Act 2016 which will soon come into force.
“We were criticised for passing these laws, including by some who fearmongered for political reasons. The National Security Council Act in particular has been deliberately misinterpreted,” said the PM in a statement.
He argued that unlike accusatons by critics, the new law is not the same as a declaration of a national emergency, a power which he assured all still remains with the Agong, and unlike a national emergency, Parliament remains sitting, with oversight on any security area declared.
He reiterated his earlier stand that the government will never apologise for enacting the laws which he said placed the safety and security of the Malaysian people first.
“These laws were necessary, and other countries have since followed our lead,” he said, assuring Malaysians that the government will continue to put all possible measures in place to protect them.
Naib continued that terrorist outrages around the world demonstrate that the threat is real and growing, and Malaysia, too, got a taste of its first Islamic State (IS) attack last month.
This was why, following requests from the security forces, Naib said that the government introduced the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act, the Special Measures against Terrorism in Foreign Countries Act, the Prevention of Terrorism Act, and the National Security Council Act.
“Islamic State and its cruel, perverted ideology have no place in Islam, nor in our peaceful, diverse and tolerant country. Now is the time for us to unite and play an even greater part alongside the world community in the fight against terrorism,” the premier cautioned.
The National Security Council Act, which comes into effect on Aug 1, 206, was passed by the Malaysian Parliament in December 2015. It was gazetted without royal assent, as the government shrugged off a request by the Conference of Rulers for it to be refined.
The government claims that its purpose is to strengthen the coordination of intelligence, establish a swift response mechanism, and if it is in the interests of national security, to enable the establishment of a security area for six months, citing cases like the 2014 Lahad Datu armed intrusion.
However, critics worry that the loose wording and vague provisions in the Act may lead to abuse and caution that it may place too much power in the PM’s hands and bypass royal oversight.

The National Security Council consists of eight members, at least five of whom must be present to constitute a quorum at any meeting of the council. In existence since 1971, The NSC Act places it on a statutory basis for the first time and formalises it powers.
The government claim that the Act contains provisions for the protection of civilians and their property as and when they are covered by the establishment of a security area, and also sets limits on the actions of the security forces during that time.
This is something which critics argue is not the case, as provisions in the Act that govern those areas are loose and vague. - Mkini

Haramj_dah Management : In 2016 1MDB Declares Their 2013-2014 Audited Accounts Unreliable, 3rd Auditor Quits

Image result for 1mdb audits

The following is summarised from The Star :  

  • KL : (1MDB) decided its 2013-14 audited financial statements no longer reliable  
  • move follows . . civil forfeiture suits by US (DOJ), 1MDB said
  • DOJ filed forfeiture lawsuits to recover assets misappropriated from 1MDB
  • assets for seizure held by Najib’s stepson Riza, Jho Low, two Abu Dhabi reps
  • " board decided ..as precautionary measure," 1MDB said Tues (ie  26/7/'16) 
  • 1MDB finding new auditor to replace Deloitte, which resigned  .. . .. 
  • Bernama
My comments :  I am just borrowing the PM's language. It is the PM who used the word haramjadah.  He was actually referring to himself. And this is typical haramjadah management.  

Just now I was discussing with my good wife about a missing receipt.  We have no choice but to pay GST on a higher amount. A small loss that we have to absorb. We are law abiding people.

But these haramjadah can release a statement IN 2016 telling the public 'Err..we wish to inform you that our audited accounts for 2013 and 2014 are not reliable'.

Just like that? So what about the investing public, the banks who lent you money, your clients, customers etc who may have relied on your AUDITED ACCOUNTS IN 2013-2014 to lend you money, to do business with you, to invest in your projects etc over that period of time ?  How do you expect them to explain to their shareholders, their Boards, their clients and customers? Just say 'Oops !!'.  

1MDB must realise that people can sue them in civil courts for misrepresentation or worse.   1MDB even applied for a listing on the KL Stock Exchange, using Audited Accounts which they now say are "unreliable".
Here are some comments by Ganesh Sahathevan about this crap :

Audited financial statements signed-off as true and fair cannot be declared unreliable by the very same managers and directors who signed off on the  financial statements. It is a bit like un-swearing a statutory declaration (yes, I know this has been done, but  Cecil Abraham & co live in a different universe).

And do note dear readers, that these signed financial statements are not only signed, but then sworn as true and fair before a notary public.

1MDB's declaration that  its 2013 and 2014 audited financial statements should no longer be relied on is therefore only relevant to charges against the 1MDB board for swearing a false declaration.  Civil suits are another matter, but I do (not)  want to digress into that. 

Then the auditors. The auditors provide an opinion with regards the signed and sworn statements. If the directors and management then say the accounts are not reliable (or should not be relied on) then the (auditor's) opinion is no longer valid and should be withdrawn.  It really is as simple as that, hefty audit fees notwithstanding.


For reference :   Malaysia's Ministry of Finance admits Delloites 1 MDB audit is in error.: Delloites "true and Fair " opinion proven to be invalid

My comments :  1MDB has basically also said that their auditors Deloitte's has done a con job. Deloitte's should also sue 1MDB. 

But (wrt the US DOJ asset seizures) didnt 1MDB just say that they have done no wrong? That they stand by whatever they have done over these past years?    So why declare your own audited accounts from 2013-2014 as unreliable? 

This is a first in the history of audited accounts in Malaysia (or maybe in the world) where a company has declared that its historical audited accounts were "unreliable". 

Ministers can make public pronouncements that the Prime Minister does not know what he signs.

The PM's lawyer can say that the PM "need not know" what he signs.

Now 1MDB can say their historical audited accounts are not reliable. 

You just cannot trust these people for anything.  They do not hold themselves accountable for anything. They can just do as they please.  

Here is a video of the j _ dah talking crap :
