The politician, his son and the crony

“That is between my son and Michael Chia, its not
like he (Chia) is giving it to me… and I am the
minister, not my son.”
If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then the way to an Umno politician’s heart, is through his spouse or children. In Malaysia, cronies beat a path to the politician’s door, to provide material goods for his family members.
Only the naïve would think their acts charitable. Cronies do it for personal gain: tenders for contracts, to avoid the law, a means to fleece the public through subsidies or when government projects are ‘outsourced” like the AES (Automated Enforcement System) aka “speed traps”.
Plum jobs and multi-million dollar government contracts are reserved for the offspring of Umno politicians, their cronies and pro-Umno civil servants.
The rakyat have heard of a few of the children of ministers who are allegedly involved in cronyism and corruption, but there are many more ministerial children of whom we have heard nothing, yet.
Whose son was allegedly awarded the RM128.4 million air traffic control system contract, through a “closed tender” process? This air traffic control system was allegedly faulty and risked the lives of millions of airline users.
Whose children are allegedly hiding in New York, at least until the furore of the scandal they are involved in, dies down? Were Muslims aware that this Hari Raya Haji 3,000 cattle had to be imported from Thailand for sacrificial slaughter? The irony is that farmers’ needs have been sacrificed for the vanity project of an incompetent family. This money should have filtered down to the farmers, to help them earn a living, to help the economy and the cattle industry.
Whose sons are indirectly involved in the latest launch of the airline, Malindo Airways? An online newpaper alleged that one of the companies investing in Malindo, had poor financial and safety records, and that its accounts had not been audited since 2007.
Which daughter of a former top civil servant owns a major interest in alternative energy projects in Malaysia? Her companies were allegedly set up recently and despite the lack of experience, still managed to secure a controlling interest in the alternative power generation needs.
The list is endless. Children of past and present politicians and also VVIPs, monopolise the multi-million ringgit projects, providing much needed goods and services, which you and your children have no alternative but to use. You also pay through the nose, for them.
When quizzed by reporters about the involvement of their spouses, children or friends, these politicians brush prying questions aside with:
a) My husband does not tell me what he gets up to.
b) What my wife does is private.
c) I don’t know what my son (or daughter) is doing.
d) My businessman friend wanted to surprise me with the contents of his briefcase.
No conflict of interest
Yesterday, Nazri ignored criticism of his son’s relationship with Michael Chia, the businessman who is embroiled in the RM40 million money laundering saga. Despite assertions that this money was destined for Sabah Umno, the members of Sabah Umno claim to have no knowledge of this donation.
Nazri also said that his reputation as a Cabinet Minister had not been compromised and he could see no conflict of interest in his or his son’s friendship with Chia.
An online newspaper reported that Nazri had said: “I don’t sleep with my son. I am not gay (homosexual). My son is not my wife, my son is not my lover. What he does, he doesn’t tell me.
“That is between my son and Michael Chia. If he (Chia) wants to give [Nedim] a Hummer or a Ferarri, it is Michael Chia’s business… its not like he (Chia) is giving it to me… and I am the minister, not my son.”
“What has he committed, tell me? He is not a minister. Where is the conflict of interest? He is my son”.
Cynics claim that the parliamentary ministerial code, which details the conduct expected of Malaysian MPs, can’t have been shown to Umno politicians like Nazri.
Despite being accused by the PKR strategy director, Rafizi Ramli, of having a conflict of interest, Nazri mocked reporters, “But I am still minister today, my friend. This is not going to hurt me one bit. I don’t think I am going to be affected by gutter politics”.
Last week, in Penang, a man was arrested for impersonating a member of the Kedah royal family. He and 12 others in his group, will be charged under Section 420 and 419 of the Penal Code, for cheating and dishonesty, and under Section 108 of the Road Transport Act 1987, for making false statements.
A few months ago, Nedim Nazri claimed to be a member of royalty, when a security guard at a luxury condominium in Kuala Lumpur denied entry to Nedim and his bodyguard. The guard was assaulted for doing his job, but last week the case was closed.
Who knows, the CCTV which recorded the attack on the security guard was probably pointing the wrong way, or was accidentally wiped clean? Did threats or rewards work this time? What happened to the charge for impersonating royalty?
In Malaysia, the person who is worse than the Umno crony is possibly the Umno politician’s son. He acts without restraint. He is free to do as he pleases. He is no better than a thug and he does not value your safety, nor your life. Nedim we know, has a chequered past.
In politics, the cocky politician who lacks humility, who belittles conflict of interest and who has two sets of laws, may well find his days numbered.
Nazri may mock the public now, but he may regret his actions later. If these men were to read about politics in the modern world, they would learn that sons follow their fathers’ fates, when the latter are toppled; men like Saddam, Gaddafi and Mubarak.

    Saya dihubungi oleh salah seorang anggota keluarga Azmin yang memberitahu tentang kekayaan Azmin yang dikatakan mempunyai “sumber kewangan tidak terbatas”.

    saya tertanya-tanya, di dalam kemeriahan Azmin yang dilimpahi wang beratus-ratus juta itu, mengapa PKR sering menyatakan bahawa parti mereka tidak punya wang? Malah Presiden PKR, Datin Seri Wan Azizah sendiri telah menggerakkan tabung dana PKR bagi menampung perbelanjaan parti itu menghadapi Pilihanraya Umum ke-13.

  71. apa dah jadi dengan beberapa negeri di bawah pentadbiran pembangkang? jum kita tengok ramai-ramai...

    Kelantan - Ladang Rakyat yang terbentang di atas tanah seluas 81,095 ekar meliputi Jajahan Gua Musang, Kuala Krai, Jeli dan Tanah Merah sememangnya tidak pernah sunyi dari desas desus wujudnya penyelewengan berikutan pengendaliannya yang lebih menguntungkan orang luar Kelantan berbanding hanya segelintir penduduk tempatan sahaja yang mendapat manfaatnya.

    Pulau Pinang – Laporan audit mendedahkan begitu banyak kelemahan dan salah urus tadbir dalam pengurusan kewangan negeri Pulau Pinang. Antara kelemahan yang ditemui adalah seperti kekurangan sistem pengurusan maklumat, penguatkuasaan, penyeliaan yang kurang rapi, ketiadaan pemantauan yang berkesan dan kekurangan peruntukan kewangan.


    Selangor : Laporan Audit Ketua Negara mendapati Pendidikan Industri YS Sdn Bhd (PIYSB) yang mengendalikan Universiti Selangor (Unisel) mengalami kerugian sebelum cukai sebanyak 198.1 peratus kepada RM37.63 juta berbanding RM12.62 juta pada tahun 2009.

    Kedah : Laporan Audit 2011 telah melaporkan bagaimana sebuah kerajaan negeri boleh terlepas pandang perkara asas seperti lesen kontraktor, dalam pemberian projek jutaan ringgit.

    Dengan semua penemuan-penemuan ajaib seperti di atas, masihkah Pakatan Rakyat mendabik dada mengatakan mereka mempunyai pengurusan dan pentadbiran lebih baik daripada Kerajaan Persekutuan?

    2. "NCR claims can still be applied under Section 14 of the Sabah Land Ordinance to the Assistant Collector of Land Revenue (ACLR) despite four provisions in the ordinance formulated on December 13, 1930," he said.

    3. Musa, who is also State Finance Minister, said the State Government had discharged its fiduciary duties at its level to preserve and protect the native land rights and ownership.

    4. "Accusations that the State Government is sidelining NCR land claims and discriminating land ownership for natives are totally untrue," he said, reminding all quarters to stop twisting and manipulating the NCR issue.

  85. Musa was answering a question by Kunak Assemblyman, Datuk Nilwan Kabang, who asked whether the Government condoned the abolishment of NCR status of an area which had been resided by natives since time immemorial just because it was enforcing the 1930 Sabah Land Ordinance.

    3. According to him, it took the British North Borneo Chartered Company 41 years to formulate the best land law on NCR, that is the Sabah Land Ordinance, to be applied in Sabah in order to protect and preserve the customary right land and native land ownership in line with the spirit of Article No.9 of the Royal English Charter.

      Delete
    4. In order to achieve the objective, the British North Borneo Chartered Company administration had included new provisions under Section 5, Section 6, Section 65 and Section 88 in the Sabah Land Ordinance.

      Delete

    5. He told the House that Section 5 was related to "Government property in land", Section 6 was concerned about "Unlawful occupation not to establish any right", Section 65 on "Customary tenure" while Section 88 was on "No title or claim to land valid unless registered."

      Delete
    6. Based on these four new provisions, it meant that beginning Dec. 13, 1930, all the State lands and reserves in Sabah fully belonged to the State Government.

      Delete

    7. Therefore, any illegal occupation of State land (no matter how long) or occupation through Temporary Occupation Lease (TOL) cannot be taken as the right to establish claim for ownership.

      Delete

    8. Right, grant, interest or transaction of a land could only be considered as legal after it had been registered in accordance to the Sabah Land Ordinance except for land, the ownership of which is being handed down from generation without any documents.

      Delete
    9. The implementation of the land law on Dec. 13, 1930 had a major impact on NCR land claims in Sabah because before that occupation by natives was done freely and they would be awarded with the land ownership if the occupation satisfied the requirements for native rights land.

      Delete

    10. After the law was enforced, this was governed by the four provisions whereby the legitimacy of the land occupation must be ascertained through Section 15 of the Sabah Land Ordinance (Customary Right Land Definition).

    11. Musa said the State Government through the Land and Survey Department had since been using the law as the guide to decide on all NCR land claims in Sabah.

    12. In this respect, he said for the past 15 years until September this year, 615 NCR claims involving 1,164 claimants had been received and registered at the Land Offices throughout the State.
