• Totally unacceptable and unethical for the Ministry of Youth and Sports to give an MIC-controlled foundation RM19 million in government funds

    Media Statement by Dr. Ong Kian Ming, MP for Serdang, 29th of March 2016

    Totally unacceptable and unethical for the Ministry of Youth and Sports to give an MIC-controlled foundation RM19 million in government funds

    In a parliamentary reply on the 8th of March, 2016, to a question asked by MP for Batu Gajah, V.Sivakumar, on the effectiveness of the chili planting program conducted by NAAM and the amount of funds that were channelled to NAAM, it was revealed that an amount totalling RM19 million was given to Yayasan NAAM via the Ministry of Youth and Sports (See Appendix 2).[1]

    Yayasan NAAM or the New Affirmative Action Movement is a registered company chaired by the Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, M. Saravanan.[2] The other board of directors / trustees include Krishnan A/L Letchumanan or L. Krishnan (former MIC MP for Teluk Kemang)[3], Mathuraiverna A/L Marimuthu or M.Marimuthu (current MIC CWC Member)[4] and Selva Kumar A/L Mookiah (MIC Legal Advisor)[5]. (Appendix 1)

    The awarding of government funding to an NGO that is effectively controlled by a political party is totally unacceptable and unethical. One can imagine the furore that would have been caused if the Penang state government had channelled state funding to an NGO that was controlled by the DAP and has a free hand to use the funds to conduct its political activities. MACC would have been unleashed to investigate this NGO immediately.

    The signing of the Corporate Integrity Pledge (CIP) Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Ministry of Youth and Sports and Yayasan NAAM in May 2014 does not make this abuse of government funding any more acceptable.[6] The recent revelation of a corruption case involving the embezzlement of RM107 million in the Ministry of Youth and Sports shows that the abuse of funds and corruption can happen under the nose of the Minister. What more when it involves a company that is not audited by the Auditor General and that is not under the control of the Ministry of Youth and Sports? More than two years after it was first registered, Yayasan NAAM only has a bare bones website and for a foundation that is supposed to reach out to the youth, it does not even have a facebook or a twitter account.[7]

    I call upon Minister of Youth and Sports, Khairy Jamaluddin, to explain why funds from his Ministry were allocated to this MIC controlled NGO and to give us his assurance that there has not been any abuse of government funds by Yayasan NAAM.

  • 致凯里针对反贪会对青体部涉及大规模舞弊的调查案件的几道问题

    (2016年3月21日)沙登区国会议员王建民博士的媒体文告

    致凯里针对反贪会对青体部涉及大规模舞弊的调查案件的几道问题

    当读到由马来西亚反贪会(MACC)上周宣布涉嫌1亿令吉舞弊案的政府部门高级官员乃是青体部官员时,我感到很困惑。[1] 据我所知,青体部长凯里将在上午十点举行新闻记者会以便交代这个课题。鉴于此舞弊案的严重性,包括揭露共有69个银行账户里的830万令吉现金和总值2000万令吉的资产属于这名官员,因此我促请部长交代以下问题以正视听:

    1) 你是否有接获反贪会的汇报或任何有关本次调查的信息?

    2) 任何被反贪会逮捕的官员是否仍留在青体部或相关单位工作?

    3) 你是否认为还有其他在青体部或相关单位工作的官员会进一步地因这次调查而被逮捕?

    4) 你是否认为还有在其他政府部门工作的官员会因同样的调查而被逮捕?

    5) 是否有任何一间涉及被反贪会调查的公司是在你成为青体部长后无论是直接或间接通过青体部来授权提供合约或服务交易呢?

    6) 是否有任何一间涉及被反贪会调查的公司是在你成为青体部长后无论是直接或间接通过国家体育理事会来授权提供合约或服务交易呢?

    7) 是否有任何一间涉及被反贪会调查的公司是在你成为青体部长后无论是直接或间接通过马来西亚青年理事会来授权提供合约或服务交易呢?

    8) 在2014年5月,你代表青体部参与了政府转型计划(GTP)下的反腐国家重点成果领域(NKRA)而签署了企业廉洁宣言。[2] 请问你是否具体说出在签署了宣言后,青体部内的采购和合约颁发过程所作出的任何改进?

    9) 根据坊间的消息,被逮捕的青体部里的关键人物是财政部秘书Otman bin Arshad。你是否可以详细解释Otman是如何涉及批准青体部的开支和政府部门无论是透过直接或间接的方式所颁发给任何企业合约的整个过程?

    10) 有其他揣测包括这起弊案背后的真正主谋是前青体部祕书长末希,也是现任马来西亚通信与多媒体委员会(掌管政策)的副秘书。他也是其中一名涉及青体部过去活动所发生的滥用拨款的舞弊事件,其中包括大家熟悉发生在2012年国家青年节的韩国明星演出风波。[3] 他甚至过去一直都成为许多部落格里影射他在青体部涉及舞弊事件的热门话题人物。[4] 你是否有听闻到这些指控,同时有无改进任何标准作业程序(SOP)和流程来解决上述的弊端或制度缺点?

    11) 其中一间被公共账目委员会(PAC)在涉及全国青年节期间的韩国明星演唱会风波的听证会中点名的公司是Stadium First 私人有限公司。在过去揭弊指控末希,Otman和其他涉贪的部落格,这间公司也曾被点名。那请问Stadium First 私人有限公司是否有在你成为部长后继续从青体部获颁任何合约呢?

    我相信公众也有兴趣听听凯里尽可能详细地回答以上这些问题。

    王建民博士
    沙登区国会议员

  • Soalan kepada Khairy Jamaluddin berhubung siasatan SPRM terhadap isu rasuah besar yang melibatkan pegawai Kementerian Belia dan Sukan

    Kenyataan Media oleh Dr. Ong Kian Ming, Ahli Parlimen Serdang pada 21 Mac 2016

    Soalan kepada Khairy Jamaluddin berhubung siasatan SPRM terhadap isu rasuah besar yang  melibatkan pegawai Kementerian Belia dan Sukan

    Saya berasa amat terganggu ekoran membaca laporan berhubung pendedahan oleh Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) yang melibatkan skandal penyelewengan RM100 juta oleh seorang pegawai di Kementerian Belia dan Sukan (KBS).[1] Saya difahamkan Menteri KBS, Khairy Jamaluddin, akan mengadakan sebuah sidang media di Kementerian beliau pada jam 10 pagi ini berkenaan skandal ini. Melihat kepada betapa seriusnya kes penyiasatan ini, yang merangkumi penyitaan aset bernilai RM20 juta dan pembekuan wang berjumlah RM8.3 juta di dalam 69 akaun bank yang dimiliki oleh penjawat awam ini, saya meminta Menteri untuk menjawab soalan-soalan berikut bagi memberi pencerahan sewajarnya terhadap kes ini:

    1) Adakah anda telah diberi taklimat oleh SPRM atau menerima sebarang maklumat daripada SPRM berhubung kes penyiasatan ini?

    2) Adakah mana-mana individu yang ditahan oleh SPRM masih bekerja dengan KBS atau sebarang agensi yang berkaitan?

    3) Adakah anda berpendapat bahawa masih terdapat pegawai di KBS mahupun agensi berkaitan yang akan ditahan oleh SPRM susulan daripada siasatan ini?

    4) Adakah anda berpendapat bahawa terdapat pegawai di Kementerian lain yang akan ditahan oleh SPRM susulan daripda siasatan ini?

    5) Adakah mana-mana syarikat yang disenaraikan oleh SPRM telah dibayar oleh KBS, sama ada secara langsung mahupun tidak, bagi kontrak dan / atau pembekalan perkhidmatan selepas anda menjawat jawatan Menteri di KBS?

    6) Adakah mana-mana syarikat yang disenaraikan oleh SPRM telah dibayar oleh Majlis Sukan Negara (MSN), sama ada secara langsung mahupun tidak, bagi kontrak dan / atau pembekalan perkhidmatan selepas anda menjawat jawatan Menteri di KBS?

    7) Adakah mana-mana syarikat yang disenaraikan oleh SPRM telah dibayar oleh Majlis Belia Malaysia (MBM), sama ada secara langsung mahupun tidak, bagi kontrak dan / atau pembekalan perkhidmatan selepas anda menjawat jawatan Menteri di KBS?

    8) Anda telah menandatangani Ikrar Integriti Korporat (CIP) bagi pihak KBS sebagai inisiatif Bidang Keberhasilan Utama (NKRA) Memerangi Rasuah di bawah Program Transformasi Kerajaan (GTP) pada Mei 2014.[2] Bolehkah anda menjelaskan perubahan spesifik dalam proses pembelian dan pemberian kontrak dalam KBS sebagai sebahagian daripada CIP?

    9) Ada pihak yang meneka bahawa individu utama KBS yang ditahan bagi membantu siasatan adalah Setiausaha Bahagian Kewangan, Otman bin Arshad. Bolehkah anda menerangkan secara terperinci proses di mana Otman meluluskan bayaran oleh KBS dan agensi berkaitan kepada syarikat yang mempunyai kontrak, sama ada dianugerahkan secara langsung atau tidak langsung oleh KBS mahupun agensi berkaitan?

    10) Ada pihak yang meneka bahawa dalang di sebalik skandal ini adalah bekas Ketua Setiausaha KBS, Dato’ Mohid bin Mohamed, yang kini merupakan Timbalan Ketua Setiausaha (Polisi) di Kementerian Multimedia dan Komunikasi. Beliau merupakan salah seorang individu yang bertanggungjawab terhadap perbelanjaan KBS untuk program-program yang penuh kemusykilan, termasuklah konsert K-Pop pada Hari Belia Negara tahun 2012.[3] Beliau kerap menjadi sasaran di blog-blog yang membayangkan peranan beliau dalam rasuah dan penyelewengan di KBS.[4] Adakah anda sedar akan tuduhan-tuduhan ini dan adakah anda telah menukar sebarang Prosedur Operasi Standard (SOP) bagi menangani tuduhan dan kelemahan tersebut?

    11) Salah sebuah syarikat yang dinamakan oleh Jawatankausa Kira-kira Parlimen berhubung konsert K-Pop dan perbelanjaan berkaitan Hari Belia Negara adalah Stadium First Sdn. Bhd. Syarikat ini juga disenaraikan dalam salah sebuah blog yang menuduh Dato’ Midin bin Mohamed dan Otman bin Arshad (dan beberapa individu lain dalam KBS) sebagai terlibat dalam aktiviti penyelewengan. Adakah Stadium First Sdn. Bhd. masih menerima kontrak dari KBS atau sebarang agensi berkaitan selepas anda menjawat jawatan Menteri KBS?

    Saya pasti orang awam akan berminat untuk mengetahui jawapan Khairy terhadap soalan-soalan ini beserta dengan butiran yang terperinci.

  • Questions to ask Khairy Jamaluddin regarding the MACC investigation into massive corruption involving an officer with the Ministry of Youth and Sports

    Media Statement by Dr. Ong Kian Ming, MP for Serdang, on the 21st of March, 2016

    Questions to ask Khairy Jamaluddin regarding the MACC investigation into massive corruption involving an officer with the Ministry of Youth and Sports

    I was greatly disturbed when I read about the RM100 million scandal involving a civil servant from the Ministry of Youth and Sports that was revealed by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) last weekend.[1] I understand that the Minister of Youth and Sports, Khairy Jamaluddin, will be giving a press conference at his Ministry later today at 10am to address this issue. Given the seriousness of this investigation, including assets worth RM20 million and cash in 69 bank accounts totalling RM8.3 million found belonging to this civil servant, I ask that the Minister answer the following questions in order to shed more light on this case:

    1) Have you been briefed by the MACC or received any information from the MACC about this investigation?

    2) Are any of the individuals who have been arrested by MACC still working at the Ministry of Youth and Sports or any of its related agencies?

    3) Do you think there are others who are still working at the Ministry of Youth and Sports or any of its related agencies who will be arrested by the MACC as a result of the investigation?

    4) Do you think there are others who are working in other Ministries who will be arrested by the MACC as a result of the investigation?

    5) Were any of the companies which are implicated in the MACC investigation paid by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, either directly or indirectly, for contracts and / or the provision of services after you became the Minister of Youth and Sports?

    6) Were any of the companies which are implicated in the MACC investigation paid by the National Sports Council / Majlis Sukan Negara, either directly or indirectly, for contracts and / or the provision of services after you became the Minister of Youth and Sports?

    7) Were any of the companies which are implicated in the MACC investigation paid by the Malaysian Youth Council / Majlis Belia Malaysia (MBM), either directly or indirectly, for contracts and / or the provision of services after you became the Minister of Youth and Sports?

    8) You signed the Corporate Integrity Pledge on behalf of the Ministry of Youth and Sports as part of an initiative by the Anti-Corruption National Key Results Area (NKRA) under the Government Transformation Program (GTP) in May 2014.[2] Can you spell out specific changes in the procurement process and / or the awarding of contracts in the Ministry of Youth and Sports as part of the Corporate Integrity Pledge?

    9) Some have speculated that the key person arrested from the Ministry of Youth and Sports is the secretary of the finance department, Otman bin Arsahd. Can you explain in detail the process in which Otman would approve of payments by the Ministry of Youth and Sports and any of its related agencies to companies with contracts, directly or indirectly, awarded by the Ministry and any of its related agencies?

    10) Some have speculated that the real mastermind behind this scandal is the former Chief Secretary of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Dato’ Mohid bin Mohamed, who is now the Deputy Secretary (Policy) at the Ministry of Multimedia and Communications. He was one of the people associated with irregularities in spending for past events organized on behalf of the Ministry of Youth and Sports including the infamous K-Pop concert during the 2012 National Youth Day / Hari Belia Negara.[3] He has been the subject of many blogs posts which hinted at his role in corrupt dealings in the Ministry of Youth and Sports.[4] Were you aware of these accusations and did you change any processes and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in order to address some of the accusations and / or shortcomings?

    11) One of the companies named in the Parliamentary Account Committee (PAC) hearing on the K-Pop concert and the expenditure during the National Youth Day is Stadium First Sdn Bhd. This company was also named in one of the blogs accusing Dato’ Mohid bin Mohamed and Otman bin Arsahd (and a few others) in the Ministry of Youth and Sports of corrupt practices. Did Stadium First continue to receive any contracts from the Ministry of Youth and Sports or any of its related agencies after you became Minister of Youth and Sports?

    I am sure that the public would also be interested in hearing Khairy answer these questions in as much detail as possible.
