Why So Evasive Over Syed Mokhtar's RM34.3b Debt?

Hazlan Zakaria 1:20PM Sep 27, 2012

The government may be hiding details of a "potential economic disaster" from the public, claims an opposition MP.

"I suspect they are hiding something about the commercial debts of business tycoon Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary's (right) business empire.

“It is a potential economic disaster waiting to happen," Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua said today.

He claimed that the situation was similar to what happened when the Renong group collapsed last time, throwing the national economy into near chaos as its over RM20 billion in debts to local banks turned bad.

As of now, Pua alleged, Syed Mokhtar's group had borrowed over RM34 billion from financial institutions.

He said this in reference to the Dewan Rakyat speaker's rejection of his question on the business tycoon's commercial debts.

Pua lamented during a press conference at the lobby of Parliament that this was the third time the government and the Finance Ministry had pulled a fast one on his queries.

The first was when the ministry refused to answer his written question for information on corporate debts, saying this was "confidential" and on the second occasion, the ministry again  refused to answer the question on this when he brought it up in Parliament.

Remember Tony Rowland from Lonro company and Alan Bond from Australia.Alam was trying to take over Chartered Bank from Tony Rowlang.What tony did was vary simple.He control Financial Time.He got one of Financial Time repoter to write the story on Alan Bond.He reveal how much Band exposure with the Bank .The Bank got panic and pull the banking line from Alan Bond.
Alan Bond become bankrupt and went to jail for CBT.

Syae Mokhtar personly vary rich but his group of company are the sucker.
If his company in trouble,so it be.He still can enjoy his spoilt and travel all over the world with his private Jet.

I heard he paid a lot of Money to UMNO and the minister.
