Perdana Menteri Seleweng Wang Rakyat Untuk Majlis Pertunangan Anak Beliau?

 

Pada 17 Jun 2011, Perdana Menteri dan isteri telah mengadakan satu majlis pertunangan anak perempuan beliau dengan pasangannya di Seri Perdana. Majlis tertutup itu dihadiri oleh pembesar negara, tokoh-tokoh terkenal dan sahabat handai Perdana Menteri dan isteri beliau.

Sejurus selepas majlis itu dilangsungkan, pimpinan KEADILAN telah mempersoalkan sama ada perbelanjaan majlis tersebut ditanggung oleh rakyat Malaysia? Dr Tan Kee Kwong, ahli Majlis Pimpinan Pusat KEADILAN telah tampil menyebut bahawa ada ura-ura ia ditanggung oleh rakyat Malaysia kerana dibayar oleh Pejabat Perdana Menteri.

Hari ini, KEADILAN mengemukakan bukti kukuh bahawa majlis tersebut dibiayai oleh rakyat Malaysia apabila keseluruhan urusan tempahan dan pembayaran dibuat oleh Pejabat Perdana Menteri.

Dokumen yang disertakan bersama adalah dokumen tempahan catering  yang memperincikan kos berikut:

 

Kos jamuan VIP seramai 36 orang @ RM522 seorang                          RM18,792

Kos jamuan tetamu seramai 862 orang @ RM359.60 seorang          RM309,975

Kos pengendalian                                                                                                   RM81,000

Jumlah                                                                                                                        RM409,767

 

Rakyat memahami kehendak dan citarasa Perdana Menteri dan isteri yang sememangnya mahukan majlis dan jamuan yang terbaik untuk tetamu mereka. Tetamu tidak dihidangkan dengan menu rakyat 1Malaysia, sebaliknya menu yang mirip santapan diraja termasuklah daging panggang Australia, makanan-makanan laut dan pelbagai juadah yang diluar kemampuan dan imaginasi rakyat biasa.

Sementara itu hak peribadi mereka untuk mempunyai citarasa yang tinggi, adalah sangat memualkan apabila wang rakyat digunakan memenuhi nafsu dan citarasa mereka itu. Pada masa yang sama, Perdana Menteri membayar perunding-perunding untuk membina imej seorang yang makan bersama-sama rakyat dan menampilkan serba kesederhanaan.

KEADILAN telah membuat semakan dan berjaya mengesahkan bahawa individu-individu yang dinamakan di dalam dokumen tersebut adalah sahih dan bekerja di organisasi masing-masing.

Ini bukan perkara yang remeh walaupun jumlahnya hanyalah RM409,767 kerana ia melambangkan sikap sambil lewa kerajaan, bermula dari Perdana Menteri hinggalah ke menteri-menterinya menggunakan wang rakyat bagi kemewahan peribadi.

Dengan pendedahan-pendedahan setakat ini yang melibatkan menteri-menteri dan timbalan menteri, KEADILAN berpendapat sudah sampai masanya satu suruhanjaya diraja ditubuhkan menyiasat penyelewengan wang rakyat oleh Perdana Menteri, menteri-menteri dan timbalan menteri yang telah didedahkan setakat ini.

Perkara ini akan dibincangkan bersama-sama rakan di dalam Pakatan Rakyat untuk dibawa ke sidang Dewan Rakyat yang bermula minggu depan.

Surat-surat Tun Mahathir Kepada 3 Perdana Menteri Israel

Seperti yang dilaporkan oleh BERNAMA

a) The following is the letter written by Dr Mahathir to Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel in 1993, as released by the Foreign Ministry here today.

Prime Minister Malaysia
December 21, 1993

His Excellency
Mr Yitzhak Rabin
Prime Minister of Israel
Jerusalem

I would like to thank you for your letter of 17 October informing me about the Agreement of Principles and Mutual Recognition between Israel and the PLO.

My government supports this positive development and views it as a first step towards the realization of a comprehensive solution to the Middle East problem. As a demonstration of Malaysia’s support to this development my country was represented at the Donor’s Conference to support The Middle East Peace held in Washington and subsequently pledged a modest financial contribution to the Palestinians to assist in their new tasks. My government has also offered the Palestinians technical assistance under the Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme.

Malaysia as a matter of general principle is prepared to develop relations with Israel at the appropriate time. In the meantime, we would like to see tangible progress in the implementation of the peace agreement.

The Middle East problem particularly the Palestinian issue has been a cause of instability to the region and I hope the recent agreement between Israel and PLO would contribute to lasting peace to the area.

* I look forward to normal relations with Israel. (*This last sentence is handwritten)

Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad

b) The following is the letter written by Dr Mahathir to Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel in 1997, as released by the Foreign Ministry here today.

Prime Minister Malaysia
March 14, 1997

His Excellency
Mr Benjamin Netanyahu
Prime Minister of Israel
Jerusalem

Your Excellency,

Your letter dated January 23rd only reached me yesterday. I appreciate very much your taking the trouble to inform me on the situation in Palestine and the region. Unfortunately much of what you have written has been overtaken by events.

Malaysia believes in peace and in settlement of problems between neighbours through negotiations. As a last resort, we turn to third parties. In disputes over territories between Malaysia and Singapore and Malaysia and Indonesia we have agreed to get the World Court to decide. Dispute between Malaysia and Thailand over territorial waters was resolved by agreeing to share the non-marine resources equally.

Within the country, disparities in wealth distribution between the indigenous people and those of immigrant origins were resolved through affirmative action in which the have knots would have a bigger share of a growing economic cake but there would be no expropriation and redistribution of what already belonged to the descendants of immigrants. Everyone has very nearly a fair share now and everyone is fairly satisfied. Relations between the different races in Malaysia are good and not disruptive.

The important point I would like to stress is not to take what already belongs to others even though historically they may be yours. Lately, Israel has been pulling down Arab dwellings in order to erect houses for Israelis. The whole world, including your ally, the United States condemns this. But Israel has gone ahead.

You condemn Syria for making threats. But their threats are the response to your own action. If you forcibly take over land and property belonging to the Palestinians, the only response if they are not to violently act against you, is to threaten to act against you. If they cannot retaliate and they cannot voice their intended retaliation, than they would have to submit to all your action no matter how wrong. What you are doing now is against the spirit and the letter of the peace process agreed to by your predecessor. How can we trust Israel if a change in the government negates solemnly given undertakings by a Government of Israel. Please reconsider your decision to build new Jewish settlements on Arab land.

The Israeli youths are here. Our intention is to show them that Muslims are normal rational people who want to live in peace and freedom. We hope that they will have a new impression of Muslims and Islam. There will be aberrations among Muslims but there are also aberrations among Jews and Christians and people of every religion. No religion should be judged by these aberrations. We hope that the youths will understand Muslims better and will want to be at peace with them. To have peace you have to make sacrifices. The Palestinians no longer demand the elimination of Israel. They are even prepared to share Jerusalem with you. They have made sacrifices.

We should remember that when Jews were persecuted in Europe, they had always found sanctuary among Muslims in Muslim countries. We don’t regard Israelis as eternal enemies. But we cannot help but sympathise with the Palestinians because their land is being taken away from them now. It may have belonged to Jews three thousand years ago. A lot of traditional Malay land have been made part of Thailand. But we are not claiming Southern Thailand as part of Malaysia. If we go too far into the past we cannot live with our neighbours.

We are ready to have economic and technological cooperation with Israel but we cannot do so yet because you have not honoured commitments made by a legitimate Government of Israel. We would like to think that once we have established relations with you, it would be permanent.

Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad

c) The following is the letter written by Dr Mahathir to Ehud Barak, Prime Minister Elect of Israel, in 1999, as released by the Foreign Ministry here today.

Prime Minister Malaysia
June 8, 1999

His Excellency
Mr Ehud Barak Prime Minister Elect of Israel
Tel Aviv

Your Excellency,

May I extend my congratulations on your victory in the recent elections. With this impressive mandate, I hope that you and your coalition partners will be able to guide the destiny of the people of Israel at the threshold of a new Century.

I would like to take this opportunity to reiterate that Malaysia has always sought peace and the settlement of problems between neighbours through negotiations. It is therefore our hope to see the mutual implementation of the agreements signed between the PLO and Israel. We also believe that if the peace process is to be salvaged, sincere and effective steps must be taken to honour commitments.

As an important partner in the peace process it is crucial for Israel to be more accommodating. The Palestinians have made major sacrifices. They no longer demand the elimination of Israel. They are even prepared to share Jerusalem with you. It is therefore timely that Israel respond positively so as to sustain the hopes of the people in both Palestine and Israel. Solemn commitments made by a previous Government must be honoured. The alternative I am afraid, would be a permanent state of conflict and regional instability extending into the next Century. This is certainly a prospect that must be avoided.

The crux of the problem is that no party should revert to the old ways of taking what belongs to others, on the one hand and instigating hatred and violence, on the other. Malaysia cannot countenance aggression by anyone, whether friend or foe. Any country that forcibly takes over land and properties of others, or demolishes dwellings belonging to others in order to set up its own settlements cannot be said to be sincere in wanting peace.

Malaysia is of the firm conviction that the security of all countries in West Asia can only be assured with the establishment of a just, lasting, and comprehensive peace in the region. This must be based on the principle of “exchange of land for peace” and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The world looks forward to Israel under your leadership, to push forward the peace process with true determination. It is my sincere hope that the attainment of a comprehensive settlement in the region would allow Malaysia to realistically envisage a positive move towards the establishment of normal relations with Israel.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad

Danaharta-Tajuddin Ramli Out-Of-Court Settlement: Elements Of Frauds And Criminal Breach Of Fiduciary Duties Must Be Investigated Fully

While KEADILAN acknowledges the legal right of Danaharta and Tan Sri Tajuddin Ramli to settle out-of-court legal suits concerning a RM589 million debt incurred by the latter for his purchase of MAS shares, the authorities cannot ignore that there have been a series of police and MACC reports made against the former corporate figure.

He has been accused of masterminding various fraudulent transactions that constitute a serious breach of fiduciary and statutory duties that had partly contributed to MAS’ disadvantaged financial performance ever since his tenure at the national airlines. In particular, two police reports dated 4th January 2002 (Dang Wangi Report 347/02) and 4th May 2005 (Dang Wangi Report 12532/05) had been lodged by MAS to press for his accountability for the fraudulent transactions.

It is a known fact that MAS was a pride of the nation with RM600 million cash reserve when he took over in 1994, but ended up with accumulated losses of RM8 billion when he left in 2001. The financial burden inherited from the accumulated losses during his time continues to cash a shadow over MAS’ financial performance in spite of successive business turnaround plans implemented since his departure.

Partly as a result of the accumulated losses suffered, MAS had to enter the Comprehensive Collaboration Framework (CCF) with AirAsia that is deemed to be against the interest of the majority of the workers and other stakeholders in MAS.

In this context, the allegation of criminal frauds committed by Tan Sri Tajuddin Ramli is a serious national issue as it impacts the livelihood of tens of thousands ordinary Malaysians, whose hard work went down the drain because of the mismanagement of certain corporate captains deemed close to the ruling establishment. The authorities including PDRM and MACC must explain to the public why there has not been any action taken on Tan Sri Tajuddin Ramli in spite of clear evidence adduced against him. Worse, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak’s continued silence on this issue dilutes further any notion that he is serious about combating graft in the country.

On top of this, Tan Sri Tajuddin Ramli’s claim that he was a proxy in the acquisition of MAS and acted under the instruction of the then Prime Minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad warrants an investigation of the highest urgency. The fact that agencies controlled by the government (including Danaharta and GLCs) chose to back down and reached an out-of-court settlement shrouded in secrecy will inevitably strengthen Tan Sri Tajuddin Ramli’s claim that he was indeed just a proxy.

If he was a proxy, who was then the real master who should be accountable for ruining the livelihood and economic future of tens of thousands of MAS employees?

Permohonan Untuk Pinjaman Bank Dunia Dibuat Oleh NEAC Yang Dipengerusikan Tun Mahathir

Saya mengucapkan terima kasih kepada Tun Mahathir Mohamad yang akhirnya mengaku[1] bahawa pentadbiran beliau memang ada mengambil pinjaman dari Bank Dunia yang ditandatangani pada 31 Mac 1999 semasa beliau menjadi Perdana Menteri dan Menteri Kewangan. Ini bertentangan dengan penafian beliau sehari sebelum itu kononnya beliau tidak mengambil sebarang pinjaman Bank Dunia.

Malangnya, adalah mendukacitakan apabila beliau masih meneruskan pembohongan untuk mengabui mata rakyat. Beliau menulis kononnya “rundingan terakhir dibuat dalam tahun 1997 untuk mendapatkan pinjaman Bank Dunia” dengan niat menyabitkan Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim dengan permohonan pinjaman tersebut.

Hakikatnya adalah berbeza dan ini disahkan oleh dokumen-dokumen Kerajaan Malaysia dan Bank Dunia. Saya rujuk rentetan peristiwa dan dokumen-dokumen berikut untuk membuktikan bahawa permohonan untuk pinjaman sebanyak USD404 juta dari Bank Dunia dibuat atas arahan Tun Mahathir Mohamad sendiri:

1) Dokumen Bank Dunia (Laporan Awal Permohonan Pinjaman PID6999 yang disertakan bersama) pada halaman 2 perenggan terakhir menyebut:

In view of these circumstances in July 1998, the Government announced a National Economic Recovery Plan to bring the economy back on a positive growth path. One of the six strategic objectives of the National Economic Recovery Plan is to continue the country’s equity and socio-economic agenda which had been instrumental during the past two decades, in maintaining social stability in the country. In line with this objective, the Government has proposed a plan of action to mitigate the adverse social impacts of the crisis which threaten to reverse the gains made in the past. The Government has approached the Bank for help in strengthening this plan and implementing it through a Social Protection Project

Dokumen Bank Dunia itu menjelaskan tujuan permohonan pinjaman yang dibuat iaitu untuk membiayai Pelan Pemulihan Ekonomi Negara (National Economic Recovery Plan, NERP) yang diumumkan di dalam bulan Julai 1998. Permohonan juga dibuat oleh Kerajaan Malaysia, bukannya ditawarkan oleh Bank Dunia seperti yang didakwa Tun Mahathir.

2) NERP diumumkan dan ditadbir sepenuhnya oleh National Economic Action Council (NEAC) atau Majlis Tindakan Ekonomi Negara (MTEN). NEAC dipengerusikan oleh Tun Mahathir Mohamad sendiri. Perjalanan seharian NEAC diputuskan oleh Pengarah Eksekutif NEAC iaitu Tun Daim Zainuddin, Menteri Tugas-tugas Khas yang dilantik oleh Tun Mahathir Mohamad. Setiausaha NEAC adalah Ketua Pengarah, Unit Perancang Ekonomi (EPU) yang bertanggungjawab penuh kepada Tun Mahathir Mohamad ketika itu.

3) Maka, jelas terbukti bahawa permohonan mendapatkan bantuan kewangan dari Bank Dunia dibuat oleh NEAC bagi pihak Kerajaan Malaysia untuk membiayai NERP yang dilancarkan dalam bulan Julai 1998. NEAC dikawal sepenuhnya oleh Tun Mahathir Mohamad.

4) Ini bertepatan dengan jadual kelulusan pinjaman dari Bank Dunia seperti yang termaktub di dalam Laporan Penilaian Permohonan Pinjaman (Project Appraisal Document 18855-MA yang disertakan bersama) mukasurat 29. Ia menyebut tarikh-tarikh penting seperti berikut:

  1. Permohonan mula-mula diterima dari Kerajaan Malaysia pada 26 Julai 1998
  2. Pasukan penilai dari Bank Dunia berlepas ke Malaysia pada 30 November 1998
  3. Rundingan hanya bermula 1 Februari 1999

5) Bukan sahaja permohonan dibuat oleh NEAC mengikut arahan Tun Mahathir Mohamad, malah kesemua proses rundingan berlaku selepas Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim sudah pun dipenjarakan.

 

Saya percaya Tun Mahathir Mohamad akan mencari alasan baru untuk menerangkan perkara ini walaupun ia sudah jelas terbukti, sebagaimana beliau akhirnya mengaku beliau ada mengambil pinjaman Bank Dunia (walaupun menafikannya sebelum itu).

Saya juga menasihatkan Tun Mahathir Mohamad agar tidak begitu ghairah mencabar orang lain bersumpah di atas al-Quran dalam hal ini, kerana jika polemik cabar-mencabar untuk bersumpah ini melarat kepada isu-isu yang membabitkan keluarga beliau, sukar untuk beliau menafikannya.

Contohnya, adalah lebih berguna sekiranya beliau bersumpah di atas al-Quran bahawa anak beliau, Mirzan Mahathir tidak membeli pegangan besar di dalam konglomerat arak terbesar di rantau ini iaitu San Miguel kerana soal keluarga pembesar negara beragama Islam menguasai perniagaan arak adalah soal yang sensitif bagi masyarakat beragama Islam di Malaysia. Tambahan pula, bila konglomerat yang sama ingin menguasai perniagaan hiliran milik ExxonMobil Malaysia yang melibatkan ribuan rakyat Malaysia beragama Islam yang tidak sanggup dibayar gaji dari wang yang terlibat dengan arak.

Jika beliau bersungguh-sungguh untuk bersumpah di atas al-Quran, bersumpahlah menafikan perkara ini terlebih dahulu.

Pinjaman Bank Dunia Yang Dinafikan Tun Mahathir Sah Diterima Kerajaan Malaysia, Tersenarai Dalam Penyata Akaun Negara

Saya merujuk kepada penafian Tun Mahathir Mohamad bahawa pentadbiran beliau mengambil bantuan kewangan dari Bank Dunia dalam tahun 1999, seperti yang dilaporkan BERNAMA pada 19 Disember 2011. Beliau juga mempersoalkan kesahihan dokumen-dokumen perjanjian pinjaman di antara Kerajaan Malaysia dan Bank Dunia yang dikemukakan KEADILAN.

Saya telah menulis secara rasmi kepada Bank Dunia untuk mendapatkan pengesahan mereka bahawa semua dokumen yang dipaparkan di laman web mereka adalah sahih. Saya yakin bahawa kesemua itu adalah dokumen sah.

Kalau pun Tun Mahathir meragui dokumen-dokumen rasmi dari Bank Dunia, beliau tidak boleh menafikan dokumen rasmi kewangan negara yang dikeluarkan oleh Kerajaan Malaysia dan diluluskan di Parlimen. Saya lampirkan Penyata Akaun Memorandum Hutang Awam Luar Negeri Kerajaan Malaysia seperti pada 31 Disember 2008 yang terkandung di dalam Anggaran Perbelanjaan Persekutuan 2010. Dokumen ini dibentangkan oleh Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak pada 23 Oktober 2009.

Penyata tersebut mengesahkan bahawa Kerajaan Malaysia telah mengambil pinjaman dari Bank Dunia dalam tahun 1999 dengan rujukan “4452 MA Projek Sokongan Sektor Sosial” dari Bank Dunia (dikenali sebagai Bank Antarabangsa bagi Pemulihan dan Pembangunan). Kadar faedahnya adalah 7.47% bagi tahun 2008 dan sehingga 31 Disember 2008, Kerajaan Malaysia masih berhutang sebanyak RM701,040.14 daripada keseluruhan pinjaman berjumlah USD60 juta yang diambil dalam tahun 1999.

KEADILAN tidak mahu memanjangkan isu ini. Kami hanya mengemukakan fakta untuk membetulkan kenyataan Tun Mahathir Mohamad sebelum itu yang jelas satu pembohongan.

Penggunaan teknologi maklumat yang semakin meluas sekarang berbanding sedekad lalu memungkinkan pelbagai dokumen rasmi Bank Dunia dipamerkan kepada umum kerana mereka mengamalkan dasar terbuka, bukannya seperti pentadbiran Barisan Nasional yang menggunakan Akta Rahsia Rasmi untuk menyekat pelbagai dokumen daripada diteliti rakyat.

Sewajarnya Tun Mahathir Mohamad perlu menerima hakikat bahawa beliau telah tersilap dan memohon maaf kepada rakyat Malaysia kerana berbohong mengenai bantuan Bank Dunia kepada Malaysia dalam tahun 1999.
