PKFZ: MACC Chief Brushed Off PAC

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was first summoned to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) to clarify matters regarding the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal on the 17 June 2009. However, the MACC Chief Commissioner, Dato' Ahmad Said Hamdan brushed off the PAC like we were a fly on his shoulder.

He didn't even bother sending his Deputy Chief. Instead he sent his Director of Investigations, Datuk Mohd Shukri Abdull with a letter informing of his absence.
...Dukacita dimaklumkan bahawa saya tidak dapat hadir ke mesyuarat tersebut pada tarikh yang dinyatakan. Saya memohon maaf di atas perkara tersebut. Oleh itu saya mewakilkan Yang Berbahagia Datuk Mohd Shukri bin Abdull, Pengarah Bahagian Siasatan untuk hadir ke mesyuarat yang berkenaan pada tarikh 17 Jun 2009.
The PAC members were of course livid. Ahmad Said did not even bother attempting to justify or explain his absence. Even the normally gentle PAC chairman, Datuk Seri Azmi Khalid was upset.
...Sebelum saya teruskan saya hendak tanya, surat ini dia tidak sebut sebab apa dia tidak dapat hadir. Adakah dia ke luar negara, adakah dia sakit, apakah sebab yang Ketua Pengarah tidak hadir?
The response from Datuk Mohd Shukri bin Abdull was:
...Saya diberi surat panggilan untuk hadir mesyuarat ini bertarikh 15 hari bulan kepada saya. Saya hanya dimaklumkan oleh Ketua Pengarah saya kerana ada tugas lain yang lebih penting. Dia tidak maklumkan tugas apa Tuan Pengerusi dan saya bila saya tengok di Minit kepada saya itu, terus saya datang sini...
My goodness! "ada tugas yang lebih penting"! More important than the most important committee (PAC) of the highest legislative body of the country?!

We were disgusted, or well, at least I was.
Tuan Pengerusi: Okey... [Ketawa] Kalau saya izinkan semua Ahli PAC ini bercakap, saya rasa meletup juga lah. Biarlah saya sebut. Perkara yang lebih penting itu apa?
Datuk Haji Mohd Shukri bin Abdull: Minta maaf Tuan Pengerusi, dia tidak maklumkan kepada saya.
Tuan Pengerusi: Ini ingin dimaklumkan bahawa sidang PAC ini adalah sidang sebahagian daripada Parlimen, macam you masuk ke Parlimen untuk memberi dan menjawab soalan-soalan. Jadi kalau badan yang tertinggi sekali dalam negara memanggil dan tidak begitu penting, bermakna Ketua Pengarah Suruhanjaya Pencegah Rasuah Malaysia tidak menghormati Parlimen. Itu maknanya.

Datuk Haji Mohd Shukri bin Abdull: Tuan Pengerusi...

Tuan Pengerusi: Tanpa memberi sebab-sebab yang kalau sakit, pergi ke luar negara itu kita boleh terima dan juga Timbalan dia di mana?

Datuk Haji Mohd Shukri bin Abdull: Timbalan dia hari ini tidak silap saya berjumpa dengan Perdana Menteri.

Tuan Pengerusi: Okey, PAC tidak boleh terima segala alasan.

Datuk Haji Mohd Shukri bin Abdull: Tuan Pengerusi, saya hanya datang atas arahan dan saya tidak boleh komen kenapa Datuk Seri tidak boleh datang sebab apa-apa sahaja arahan yang saya terima, saya kena patuh Tuan Pengerusi.

Tuan Pengerusi: Okey, kita persetujuilah itu bukanlah kesilapan Datuk Shukri, jadi PAC tidak boleh terima kehadiran selain daripada Ketua Pengarah tanpa alasan-alasan yang kukuh. Saya mengharapkanlah Ketua Pengarah lebih menghormati Parlimen dan mengetahui kedudukan PAC. Kita tangguh dulu, kita perlu panggil pada tarikh yang lain.
So MACC wasted our time, we postponed the meeting which was subsequently held a week later on 23 June. I can let you know here that when Ahmad Said came for the meeting then, he did not even have the courtesy to apologise for his absence in the previous meeting! What a ....! That's one of the reasons why we have argued that when the bill on MACC was debated in parliament last year, the agency must be placed under the purview of the Parliament, so that we can keep this cocky spaniels in check.

It is not the MACC.

Please ask Uncle Lim to shift the target to Najib.

Use PKFZ to topple Najib. Why keeping it on OTK ? MACC ?

Pressure the PM, not the small character.

Where's Anwar ? What he is doing? If he plans to be the PM in waiting, ask him to do his job.

The incompetent and arrogant BN ass licker should be sacked. He's unfit for the position. And he has the thick face to tell us that the public should support MACC?

These bloody umno goons are so bloody arrogant. They don't give a dame. I'm saying if PR is voted in after GE13, the 1st thing najis will do is declace emergency. No way will they give in to PR, for they know what the consequences will be. They can't risk answering for their actions. Yes, umno besides being ARROGANT they are bloody COWARDS.
(Anwar seems to be dissappointing of late.)

Dear Sir,
Their "ada tugas yang lebih penting" is to track down DAP assemblymen and law makers based on unfounded evident ground in order to derogate them nicely. And which were selectively doing for BN to quagmire PR political strenght. Compare it with the important of wrecking PR to scandal of PKFZ, the later is the shit matter to them.
1) Anwar sodomy 2
2) Eli Wong scrupulous photos exposition.
3) Ronnie's local mafia connection with love.
4) Cow-head protestation by God's chosen sons.
These few items are much more important than PKFZ fiasco. These all can be suspected are the jobs of M'ada celekal cumpuran.
No matter how it is going to turn out in this misgovernment of scandal, PR's important people have to pay more attention to expose it to public in order to disgrace them at those omnipotent government machinery arms are incapable to help governing this country properly and efficiently.
How conspicuously that BN is mentality weakened by its worries and anxieties that PR will be growing stronger in power which will enable PR take over the federal government.
PAS unity connection with Umno shall be over now at the moment. Tok Guru of PAS had powerfully shown his anger about it. This unwanted unity talk is going to fold up by itself politically. A tactic set by BN to cock against PR and Anwar should be temporary settled and smiling off.

too many Ah Bian in the country. They are some how united to safe each other butts. The only way is to vote PR with huge majority. But then the country may end out like Burma.
