Consider This: Armed Forces - Veterans' Welfare Neglected? It is definitely neglected!!!
Wednesday, June 29, 2022
The President of the Veteran's Association served only a short period of time. He is doing very well. Datukship and all, he will not understand the plight of Veterans. Major Mior Rosli is telling it like it is, hear him articulate the problem succinctly.
What does Kerismuddin know, he is busy answering for the missing OPV's and missing helicopters, which were all paid for!!! This is what he said. Jangan ugut!!! Ugut-ugut tak jalan!! How can any soldiers forget this, a betrayal? Ingat tak Kerismuddin? Soldiers have elephant memories.
Indonesia: Muslims accuse nightlife chain of blasphemy for offering free bottle of gin to men named Muhammad
Robert Spencer : Sometimes you just wanna say, “Sheesh, fellas, lighten up, already,” but that’s probably blasphemous, too. “Indonesia nightlife chain Holywings accused of blasphemy after using ‘Muhammad’ in marketing campaign,” by Anne Grace Savitha, Malay Mail, June 24, 2022:
PETALING JAYA, June 24 —
Indonesian nightlife chain Holywings has issued an apology after
backlash over what has been regarded as a blasphemous marketing campaign
using the name Muhammad. In
the now-deleted post, Holywings promised a bottle of Gordon’s dry gin
for men named Muhammad while women who are named Maria would get a
bottle of Gordon’s Pink Gin every Thursday, reported Coconuts Jakarta.
Maria is an important figure in both the Bible and the Quran, the
outrage was centred on the use of the name Muhammad, who is the last
prophet in Islam. The nightlife chain issued an apology on Instagram yesterday and promised to do better for future marketing campaigns….

Chicken ceiling price up by 50 sen to RM9.40 per kg
Malaysiakini : Chicken prices will continue to be subsidised, the government said
today, with the new ceiling price for Peninsular Malaysia now set at
RM9.40 per kg - an increase of RM0.50.
In a statement, Agriculture
and Food Industries Minister Ronald Kiandee said the cabinet also

The new ceiling prices are effective this July 1.

M40 group,” Ronald said.
Judge’s previous bank job not linked to Najib’s SRC case - prosecution
Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali
Inspector Gadget 2021 : So long as Najib Rosmah & Zahid are walking and talking rubbish freely the process of making Malaysian stupid will continue non stop.
They are all the threat to Malaysia security thus should be arrested under Sosma without further delay. All 3 of them should attend their current court proceedings straight from prison daily.
IGP has full command and control of the police force under the Police Act 1967. Please act fast to reduce the level of international embarrassment to Malaysia.
Malaysiakini : Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali’s previous role in Maybank is
irrelevant to the RM42 million SRC International corruption case against
Najib Abdul Razak, the prosecution contended.
In an affidavit
filed at the Federal Court this afternoon to oppose the former premier’s
bid to adduce fresh evidence, deputy public prosecutor Mohd Ashrof
Adrin Kamarul contended that the alleged evidence sought has more to do
with a separate ongoing RM2.28 billion 1MDB graft trial against the
The DPP pointed out that Nazlan’s previous role as group
general counsel and company secretary with Maybank was already in the
public domain as it was reported by the media as far back as Aug 2,
Ashrof noted that it was not possible for Nazlan presiding
over the SRC trial to cause a conflict of interest because Maybank
Investment Bank Berhad then merely provided strategic advisory services
to 1MDB to develop an overall strategy and business plan of SRC, a then
subsidiary of the Malaysian sovereign wealth fund.
Nazlan was once attached to Maybank Investment Bank Berhad.
Falah Muhammad attacked Mona Wafdi Marzouk, 35, as she was walking to
her family farm early in the morning to assist her sick and ailing
father. Muhammad crept up behind her and began to strangle her; then,
according to the report, “he grabbed a sickle [a sharp tool used for
cutting weeds] and tried to slaughter her with it.” Luckily, the sickle
had dulled over the years and did not fully slice though the arteries
of her neck.
Muhammad then fled the scene, as reported by Mona’s cousin, Makari, who
saw the incident from a distance and ran to the butchered woman’s aid.
He and other family members instantly transferred her to the nearest
medical center, where she received seven stitches to her neck.
In response to a police investigation, Muhammad’s family instantly
produced a certificate indicating that he is “mentally ill”—a tactic on
regular display in Egypt whenever a Muslim is caught after attacking a
Christian, to get him the most lenient sentencing.
Broken Marble Tile is Latest Damage to the Hagia Sophia
Greek City Times : New images of damage to the Hagia Sophia has caused outrage and

Media 'Secularizes' Muslim Who Poisoned Hindu Family
Sangli mass murder: Occultist Abbas arrested for poisoning a family to death, ‘secular’ media gives a Hindu spin by calling him ‘Tantrik’. The Sangli police informed that an occult practitioner named Abbas Mohammad Ali Bagwan and his accomplice had poisoned the entire family in Sangli by poisoning the tea and making it look like a suicide pact. But the media outfits reported that a 'Tantrik' killed them.
The so-called secular media has long worked to water down heinous
crimes, especially when the accused belongs to the minority community.
By calling a Muslim occultist, who reportedly poisoned nine members of
the Sangli family a ‘Tantrik’, many renowned media outlets like Aaj Tak,
News 18, Hindustan Times and The Indian Express on Tuesday proceeded to
give this incident a Hindu spin as well.
In general parlance, the ‘Tantrik’ is a practitioner of the “tantra vidya“, and is mainly associated with Hinduism, leading to a perception that a Hindu individual committed the crime.
On June 20, nine members of the same family namely Dr Manik Vanmore
(49), a veterinarian and Popat Vanmore (52), an art teacher, their
mother, wives, and four children of the two couples, were found dead
inside their house in Maharashtra’s Sangli. As per the prima facie
evidence, the local Police suspected it to be a case of mass suicide. It
was reported that owing to their abysmal financial condition, the
family members consumed poison and died by suicide.
However, now, further investigation into the case has revealed that it was not a case of suicide but cold-blooded murder.

On June 28, a Hindu tailor named Kanhaiya Lal was brutally murdered by

On June 15, 2022, five days after the initial complaint by Nazim,
Kanhaiyal had approached Police for legal action and had sought
protection. In his application to the Police, he said few days prior to
the complaint, his son accidentally shared a post on Facebook while
playing games on his mobile phone.
Two days after the post was made, two
men approached him at his shop and demanded to see his phone. They told
him about the post, to which Kanhaiya Lal replied that he did not know
how to operate the phone, and his son used it to play games. They
deleted the post and warned him not to repeat it.

Deaths in detention: Ramkarpal accuses Hamzah of ignoring main issue

Here our Minister's openly pass remarks that they think that the public us stupid or are they testing their intelligence.
They can easily get away with the kampung people concerning the remarks, but Malaysians are no more ignorant.
Secondly their political position is never in jeopardy, even after passing some of the most ludicrous remarks.
Mr.Minister this concerns the life of humans. Humans that are either fathers, mothers or are children of some family. How would you feel if one of your own family is treated in such manner ?
Instead of giving an answer that will either pacify their families in give then hope that serious investigations will take place to find the cause of death, at the same time work out solutions to that this situation is not repeated, you are actually adding salt to their wounds.
At the same time creating friction between nations, also opening an avenue where our own Malaysians may end up in similar circumstances abroad.

'Oh Narendra Modi, hope knife reaches your neck as well': Hindu man
beheaded in Udaipur by two Muslim men for post supporting Nupur Sharma
In the latter part of the video, the victim could be heard crying and
screaming while he was beheaded with a raw knife by the men. The
tailor's body covered in plastic was seen lying outside his shop with
blood overflowing on the streets.
Two Muslim men in Rajasthan’s Udaipur murdered
a Hindu man, Kanhaiyya Lal, on Tuesday afternoon over his post in
support of ex-BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma. In the videos that have
emerged, the two men entered the tailor’s shop as customers and grabbed
to behead him with a knife.
In the horrific crime that has emerged following the Nupur Sharma
controversy, it has been learnt that the incident took place near the
Bhoot Mahal on Maldas Street in Udaipur. The victim who is a tailor and
proprietor of Supreme tailors was killed in broad daylight amidst the
hustle-bustle on the adjoining road. The Udaipur Police rushed to the
scene after the enraged merchants in the surrounding area complained of
the inhumane incident.
In the video posted by Delhi BJP politician Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga,
it could be seen that one Muslim man entered the victim’s shop as a
customer while the other was possibly shooting the video. While the
tailor was taking the man’s body measurements, he grabbed his neck and
attacked him from the back. After this, the man started hitting the
tailor, with the victim pleading with him to let him go.
'Anyone can die anywhere' - PKR Youth leader calls for Hamzah's sacking
Vijay47 : Johor PKR’s Lau Yi Leong, you may as well bay at the moon or urge the incoming tide to retreat. There will be no dismissal, not even a reprimand against Hamzah Zainuddin, least of all from that pathetic excuse of a prime minister, Ismail Sabri, himself terrified whether his political life ends today or tomorrow.
In what pejorative words can we accurately describe that minister and the defence he haughtily pronounced in an effort at justification? Callous, insensitive, crude, rude, ignorant, uneducated, arrogant, irresponsible, base? They are all equally appropriate yet insufficient even together to express our contempt for such shameless vermin as Hamzah Zainuddin that local politics produce.
We witness again the sorry depths into which those in authority would collapse, especially when they believe themselves to be linchpins irreproachable and omnipotent in what now passes off as the Malaysian government. But I believe the rot set long before they entered the public eye. When a person is devoid in youth of teachings that reveal the light, of proper upbringing learned on mother’s lap, we see the inevitable likes of this Home Minister.
Remember, Hamzah Zainuddin, many have sought it but immortality eludes all. Cometh soon that day.
Malaysiakini : A PKR Youth leader has called for the sacking of Home Minister Hamzah

government has shown no intention to investigate the rising cases of
deaths in immigration custody.
“If the government still maintains

‘My brother did it’ – remembering a dark day for integrity By R Nadeswaran
Malaysiakini : “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
- Winston Churchill
| Six months ago this week, political economist Edmund Terence Gomez
quit as a member of the MACC’s Consultation and Corruption Prevention
Panel. What started off as a ripple turned into a tidal wave culminating
in street demonstrations calling for the resignation of its head
honcho, Azam Baki.
In his resignation letter
which was made public on Dec 27 last year, Gomez said disturbing
questions had been raised about the “nexus between business and law
enforcement” and a “conflict of interest” situation involving Azam and
his ownership of corporate stock.
The matter would have ended there but Azam announced at a media conference that he allowed his share trading account to be used by his brother.
Maybe at that time, he was not aware that this was an admission of
sorts that he breached the Securities Industry (Central Depositories)
Act (SICDA). But the Securities Commission found that the trades were executed by Azam himself and not any third party.
put it crudely, he was caught with his pants down for having lied to
and misled the public previously by claiming “my brother did it”. Nevertheless, he was exonerated
by the Anti-Corruption Advisory Board chairperson Abu Zahar Ujang,
while the prime minister and members of his cabinet maintained an
elegant silence on the matter as if it was a trivial issue.

Tarek Fatah Reacts To Udaipur beheading of Hindu Tailor, Backs Yogi Adityanath's 'Bulldozer' Action
In a bloodcurdling incident, Islamists mercilessly hacked
a Hindu man in Udaipur to death for his social media post supporting
former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma, who was at the centre of a raging
controversy after Alt News co-founder Mohammed Zubair dog whistled her
for her comments on Prophet Muhammad.
The deceased, a Hindu man and a tailor by profession, had posted a
social media post in solidarity with Nupur Sharma about ten days ago.
Since then, he was at the receiving end of the Islamist wrath, receiving
a constant stream of death threats for simply extending his support to a
lady targeted by the extremists provoked by Mohammed Zubair.
The man also approached police and filed a complaint with them over
the unending barrage of death threats he was receiving from the
bloodthirsty mob of Islamists. Then, on Tuesday, enraged Muslim
fundamentalists barged into his shop in broad daylight and inflicted
several blows with a sharp weapon and slit his throat. The video of the
attack has since surfaced online, where the assailants can be seen
attacking the victim with sharp weapons.
Kanhaiyalal Teli, 40, was a tailor and owned a shop named Supreme
Tailors near the Bhootmahal located in Dhanmandi. On Tuesday, two
bike-borne miscreants stopped at his shop and entered inside. One after
the other, they unleashed their murderous rage on Teli, attacking him
with sharp weapons more than half a dozen times, leading to his death.
Thereafter, the two miscreants fled away.

Seberang Jaya assemblyperson Dr Afif Bahardin
Malaysiakini : Seberang Jaya assemblyperson Dr Afif Bahardin has urged PKR president Anwar Ibrahim to justify his alleged attempts at brokering support from Umno MPs to be appointed as prime minister.
The Bersatu information bureau deputy chairperson said Pasir Salak MP Tajuddin Abdul Rahman’s revelations have confirmed rumours of a supposed secret pact between Anwar and Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to bring down the previous PN-government led by Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin.
“I urge the Port Dickson MP (Anwar) to come forward and justify his readiness to gain the support of the ‘court cluster’ to be the prime minister.
“What did he promise to Zahid and the court cluster in order to fulfil his pathological obsession to be named as prime minister?” said Afif in a statement today.
Today, 27 June 2022, marks the 183rd death anniversary of Maharaja
Ranjit Singh, one of the foremost rulers of the Sikh Empire. On June 27,
1839, Sher-e-Punjab or Lion of Punjab, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, passed away following multiple health complications. With his death, the tragic story of his youngest son, Duleep Singh, began.
At the time of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s death, Duleep was not even a
year old. Following his demise, Duleep Singh lived a quiet life with his
mother Maharani Jind Kaur Aulakh at Jammu for a few years.
During that period, the Sikh empire that was established by Maharaja
Ranjit Singh was ruled by Maharaja Kharak Singh, who was followed by
Maharaja Nau Nihal Singh and Maharaja Sher Singh. After Maharaja Sher
Singh was assassinated in 1841, Duleep Singh and his mother were
recalled to Lahore in 1843. He was proclaimed the next King of the Sikh
empire on September 16, 1843, at the tender age of five, and his mother
ruled the kingdom on his behalf for a while.
The Anglo-Sikh war of 1845
From 1843 to 1845, the Sikh army grew steadily. The foreign officials
in the army were dismissed from their posts. At one point, there were
over 70,000 soldiers in Sikh Army. On December 13, 1845, the British
declared war against the Sikh empire and defeated the Sikh army. Though
Duleep Singh was retained as the figurehead Maharaja or a nominal ruler,
the Council of Regency replaced Maharani Jind Kaur. She was later
imprisoned and exiled.
Judge decides Zahid’s trial must continue without delay; prosecution accuses defence of late ‘ambush’
Guess his goose is cooked this time!!
Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (centre) arrives at the Kuala Lumpur Court Complex on June 28, 2022.
The Malay Mail : KUALA LUMPUR, June 28 — The High Court today decided that Datuk Seri
Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s trial must go on as scheduled to preserve the
precious few remaining hearing dates, rejecting the Umno president’s
attempt to delay proceedings pending a related matter.
Today is the eighth day that Ahmad Zahid has been testifying on the witness stand. At
the end of Ahmad Zahid’s testimony this afternoon, his lead defence
lawyer Hisyam Teh Poh Teik requested for the trial to be temporarily
paused until the High Court hears an application related to this case on
July 7 or next Thursday.
This trial has already been scheduled to run on from this Monday to this Thursday, as well as next Monday to next Thursday. High Court judge Datuk Collin Lawrence Sequerah then said that this trial has to continue on.
Previously on February 18, Ahmad Zahid had applied to get the
statements that anti-corruption investigators had recorded from 18
witnesses in his case, in order to prepare his defence in this trial. The
High Court on May 9 rejected Ahmad Zahid’s bid for the witnesses’
statements and he had on May 10 appealed to the Court of Appeal to
obtain the statements of just 11 of the witnesses. The appeal has yet to
Ahmad Zahid’s lawyers had on June 23 applied for the
High Court to stay or pause his trial, until the Court of Appeal decides
on his appeal to get the witnesses’ statements. The High Court
yesterday scheduled July 7 as the hearing date for this stay application.
Zahid to let Umno members decide if Tajuddin's claims true or false
BrownDove7179 : But sad to say, UMNO grassroots cannot think. They only follow what their leaders say or do. And if given rm50 or rm100 each, they are bought.
Malaysiakini : Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said it is up to his party’s members to decide the veracity of claims made by Pasir Salak MP Tajuddin Abdul Rahman.
This is after Tajuddin alleged Zahid’s “no Anwar-no DAP” stance was a lie as the latter had sought Umno MPs to sign statutory declarations (SD) supporting PKR president Anwar Ibrahim as prime minister.
“For me, what was stated by (Tajuddin), whether it is false or has slivers of truth, I leave that to the Umno members, especially the grassroots, to evaluate,” he told reporters in Kuala Lumpur today when asked about the SD allegation.
Tajuddin was sacked as an appointed member of Umno’s supreme council last week. This led to a tell-all presser yesterday, in which he alleged that Zahid, himself, and several others had signed SDs supporting Anwar as prime minister in 2020.
Responding to this, Zahid stressed that the crux of the matter was that Tajuddin was no longer a supreme council member.
Zahid claims ignorance on alleged plot to oust him
JBond : When a liar deny, that means it is the truth. UMNO president is a very very powerful cari makan position as been revealed in the court cases. Everyone would be stepping on each other to get up there. Once up there, billionaire is guaranteed. Few generations after that is taken care of. Bolehland is well and truly screwed by the master race.
Jibby with Tok Mat
Malaysiakini : Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi claims to be in the dark about an alleged plot to oust him allegedly involving his deputy Mohamad Hasan, and his predecessor Najib Abdul Razak.
However, he stressed that as an elected party president, his foes should respect the party's constitution.
"I don't know about the meeting (to plot my ouster), I don't know.
"So, we must respect the party's constitution that is when someone is chosen by delegates, and a demand is made (to oust someone), there are party rules that allow or bar someone from sitting in that position," Zahid told reporters in Kuala Lumpur today.
Source : Ten people were killed and more than 200 injured Monday in a toxic gas explosion in Jordan’s Aqaba port, authorities said. Footage on state TV showed a large cylinder plunging from a crane on a moored vessel, causing a violent release of a yellow gas.
The force of the blast sent a truck rolling down the harbourside, while port workers could be seen running for their lives. Nearby areas were evacuated and residents told to stay indoors.
The death toll rose to 10, government spokesman Faisal al-Shaboul told AFP, revising an initial toll of five killed. Prime Minister Bishr Khasawneh and interior minister Mazen al-Faraya headed to the site of the accident, state media reported. Civil defence spokesman Amer al-Sartawy earlier reported that 234 people were injured after the tank filled with toxic gas fell.
“Specialists and the hazardous substances team in the civil defence are dealing” with the incident, Sartawy added.

OCT : In Malaysia you will be investigated and prosecuted for highlighting the failings of the Govt. You can only heap praises.
When the Rakyat is suffering you can see the ministers are traveling around the world without a care for Malaysia to attend conferences and trade shows without any firm investments but MOU & LOI which are worthless. No commercial values. FDI is almost zero and our RM is heading south in a fast track.
Malaysia is well known as the most corrupted country in the world and the Govt pretends not to hear, see or do anything about it. The Zahid trial has revealed many sitting ministers on the take. This gives the fact that the Govt is full of corrupted officers. Prices will rise as nobody in the Govt knows the root of the problem to resolve it.
Siti Aishah Shaik Ismail
Malaysiakini : DAP social media bureau chief Syahredzan Johan has decried the

Ismail as “disproportionate”.
This came after police and the
Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) supposedly
took her from her home to have her statement recorded on a TikTok video
she made about the government’s move to remove certain subsidies.
According to Aishah (above),
about eight or nine police and MCMC officers came to her home yesterday
afternoon. They escorted her in three vehicles to the Ipoh District
police headquarters where she had her statement recorded during a
grilling of more than three hours.
She claimed that her handphone was confiscated during her ordeal.

Dr M opens fire on sultan – 'explain selling Johor land to foreigners'
Appum : Onn Hafiz..just interested to know...did you have this same opinion before you were installed by the sultan as MB?
Malaysiakini : Dr Mahathir Mohamad trained his guns on Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, challenging the Johor ruler to explain the selling of state land to foreign entities.
The former premier said this when quizzed on the Johor state government pointing the finger at him for Malaysia losing its claim over Pulau Batu Puteh or Pedra Branca to Singapore.
Mahathir, who is known for not biting his lip on matters concerning the rulers, claimed the size of the land sold to the Chinese and Singaporean entities was much larger than Pulau Batu Puteh.
"He can blame whoever he wants, but he is not a judge. He is a sultan. "He can give his opinion. In our country, the sultan is free to do anything (as) he is above the law. He can say anything, but I cannot respond.
"But I want to know, why did he sell 1,370ha of land to the Chinese? That is a much bigger area than just a piece of rock," he told reporters in Putrajaya.
Tajuddin to host ‘kenduri’ for PM at Zahid's doorstep

How a political event is masked as a ministerial event!!!!

Appum : Haven't reported for duty in Indonesia yet? Staying back to create havoc in Umno? Good boy!
Malaysiakini : The small but historical town of Pasir Salak in Perak will play host to Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob's ‘Aspirasi Keluarga Malaysia’ (AKM) roadshow this weekend.
However, the involvement of Pasir Salak MP Tajuddin Abdul Rahman will likely bring the spotlight on this leg of the otherwise uneventful roadshow.
Unlike the AKM roadshows in Sabah, Perlis, Johor and Terengganu, the Perak leg is the only one that is not taking place in the state capital.
Moreover, Pasir Salak is a Parliamentary constituency adjacent to the more populous Bagan Datuk - a seat held by Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for six terms.
Pulau Batu Puteh inquiry: Mahathir walks out in protest against Apandi
Koel: Apandi on a panel? The same Apandi who found nothing wrong in 1mdb, AGC? And then look at the agony and humiliation that the country was subjected to internationally after his finding. What do you think that did to the credibility of the AGC, nationally and internationally? Now pls explain why such a person could be on any panel?
IndigoCamel7131 : Ex AG Blur still in meetings and racist mamak feels sick. They deserve each other.
Malaysiakini : Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad this morning walked out in protest from the Attorney-General's Chambers where he was invited for an interview by a panel on tort misfeasance regarding the sovereignty of Pulau Batu Puteh.
This comes after he learned that the panel was still being chaired by former attorney-general Apandi Ali, whom Mahathir said has a conflict of interest in the case.
The Langkawi MP arrived at the AGC in Presint 4, Putrajaya at 9.40am but promptly left after learning that the government has not changed the panel chairperson.
"I am not attending this inquiry session. We have already written letters to the office (AGC) to get an explanation on why Apandi was chosen to chair this panel.
Kuniyo : Both Ketapi and PPBM are not credible. At this rate, PPBM will be finished even before next GE when all ex-PKR and ex-UMNO MPs left one after another.
Scheme of things? That's karma for you. Party that built by frogs will be destroyed by frogs.
Malaysiakini : Bersatu has lost another MP following Mohamaddin Ketapi’s departure today.
Mohamaddin told a press conference in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah that he decided to leave Bersatu because he was being sidelined.
He claimed he was not allowed to lead the party's Lahad Datu and Segama chapters as earlier promised.
Mohamaddin is both the Lahad Datu MP and Segama assemblyperson.
I did not see bribes given to Guan Eng: Ex-company director
Lim Guan Eng
Malaysiakini : A former director of Consortium Zenith Construction Sdn Bhd testified his belief that bribes were paid to former Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng.
However, before the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court today, Ibrahim Sahari conceded he did not personally see the alleged bribes being paid to the former finance minister in relation to the island’s RM6.3 billion undersea tunnel project.
The 29th prosecution witness was giving oral evidence during the trial of Bagan Datuk MP Lim (above) over four graft charges.
Ibrahim testified his belief following an alleged confession from the company’s senior executive director Zarul Ahmad Mohd Zulkifli in January 2018 that purported bribes were paid to the accused.
Are we going down the road of Sri Lanka? By P Gunasegaram
Malaysiakini : COMMENT It’s become rather
fashionable for many of us to compare Malaysia’s situation with that of
the failed, bankrupt, once rather promising state of Sri Lanka.
Is that a
valid comparison, are we really that bad, and if we are not already
anywhere near close, are we already firmly headed down that path? What
lessons, if any, can we learn from Sri Lanka and can we draw parallels
between them and us which would be useful for us? The answer is yes for
some and no for others. Let’s get to it.
Right now, it’s really
not a fair or reasonable comparison at all - Sri Lanka’s economy has
collapsed - they don’t have enough reserves - just US$1.92 billion
according to one report - ours was a very respectable US$116 billion at
the end of last year.
Their trade balance was negative US$8
billion for 2020, ours was a positive US$63 billion for 2021 - we earn a
considerable amount of foreign exchange to purchase our imports, they
don't, which is why they can’t buy foreign goods.
FGV appoints consultant to review chairperson’s remuneration
Dzulkifli Abd Wahab
Vijay47: Not only is this entire remuneration deal highly indecent by any measure, FGV’s subsequent explanation is insulting to anyone’s intelligence. They begin with the usual mumbo-jumbo that external consultants are reviewing the issue; typical of GLCs, reviews arise only upon public outrage. We await with bated breath.
In the meantime, FGV should inform us the initial justification for paying NED Dzulkifli Abd Wahab a prince’s ransom of RM480,000 per annum, including RM15,000 car allowance a month. On what basis were these amounts determined and approved? Car Allowance of RM15,000 a month? For heaven’s sake, what does the car run on, Dom Perignon Plenitude champagne at 3 kilometres per magnum?
And for perspective purposes, FGV should also share details of NED Reward Packages and Company Performance over the last 5 years. Is FGV actually suggesting that it did better during the Covid years?
FGV’s cunningness is revealed when they blandly state that the car allowance has been replaced by the provision of a car drawn from a subsidiary company. The previous car benefit has since been converted to Board Fees of a matching RM180,000. This, FGV unbelievably pleads with great concern for public sensitivity, will not result in any additional cash outflow from the company.
Malaysiakini : FGV Holdings Bhd had appointed an independent consultant to conduct a
review and benchmarking on the non-executive director's remuneration.
In a statement, FGV said the non-executive chairperson, Dzulkifli Abd Wahab (above),
was currently being accorded to receive on a cash basis, a director fee
of RM300,000 per annum or RM25,000 per month and a car allowance of
RM180,000 per annum or RM15,000 per month.
“FGV board was advised
by the independent consultant that the car allowance accorded to the
non-executive chairperson be replaced with the provision of a company
car as it is not reflective of the market and sectorial norms as
companies do not generally monetise the provision of a company car
benefit in the form of allowances.
“Pursuant to the advice, the
FGV board proposed to provide a company car to the non-executive
chairperson and maintain the amount of cash accorded to him previously
by converting the car allowance of RM180,000 to board fees.
