Dana R&D Disuntik Ke Projek Komersil Yang Tidak Mendapat Keyakinan Bank

Saya sertakan utusan surat-menyurat di antara pemohon (NSE Resources Corporation Malaysia Sdn Bhd) dan Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak lanjutan dari pendedahan semalam bagaimana dana untuk tujuan R&D telah digunakan untuk membiayai projek komersil.




Dari surat ini, saya dapat mengesahkan bahawa:
1. Dato’ Seri Najib memberi arahan sendiri melalui minit supaya permohonan geran RM100 juta yang berlainan dari tujuan geran R&D dipertimbangkan oleh MOSTI
2. Projek yang diusahakan oleh NSE Resources adalah untuk membekalkan stim ke sebuah kilang yang sedang dibina di Kerteh
3. Kontrak pembekalan stim pada harga RM55 satu tan itu adalah satu kontrak swasta yang melibatkan NSE Resources dan pemilik kilang lain tanpa melibatkan sebarang pegangan modal oleh kerajaan, maka sebarang keuntungan akan dimiliki oleh NSE Resources
Perenggan (7) surat dari NSE Resources ini secara jelas menunjukkan bahawa projek komersil ini tidak mendapat dokongan dari institusi kewangan kerana syarikat itu menghadapi kesukaran mendapatkan pinjaman bank. Ini sepatutnya secara serta merta menimbulkan kebimbangan di pihak Dato’ Seri Najib dan kerajaan kerana projek komersil yang tidak melepasi saringan kewangan dari institusi kewangan (seterusnya sukar mendapatkan pinjaman) membayangkan aliran tunai dan kedudukan kewangan yang tidak baik. Secara langsung, ada risiko besar bahawa pulangan dari projek tidak mencukupi untuk membayar balik sebarang dana yang disuntik ke dalam projek ini.
Sewajarnya, Dato’ Seri Najib mengambil sikap tidak campur tangan dan berhati-hati kerana ia melibatkan dana awam sebanyak RM100 juta yang sepatutnya digunakan bagi tujuan R&D. Keputusan beliau memberi saranan kepada Kementerian Sains, Teknologi & Inovasi untuk mempertimbangkan permohonan ini, apatah lagi dalam bentuk geran, adalah satu salahguna dana rakyat yang terang dan nyata.
Pada pendapat saya, projek komersil ini tidak menepati syarat-syarat untuk mendapat geran atau bantuan modal sebesar ini berdasarkan perkara berikut:
1. Teknologi dan perusahaan menghasilkan stim atau syngas dari bahan kayu atau bahan lain bukanlah teknologi terkini atau unik kepada Malaysia. Semakan menunjukkan bahawa boiler yang menggunakan kaedah ini sudah lama dipasarkan (contohnya melalui syarikat http://www.superiorgasification.com/) . Oleh itu, penghasilan stim atau syngas dari bahan kayu seperti yang diusahakan oleh NSE Resources tidaklah wajar mendapat suntikan dana sebanyak RM100 juta dalam bentuk geran seolah-olah ia teknologi terkini yang akan melonjakkan nama Malaysia, sedangkan ia hanyalah perusahaan biasa yang ada di pasaran.
2. Pembekal stim atau syngas untuk Kawasan Perindustrian Kerteh (yang mana kilang pembeli sedang dibina) sudah pun ada, jadi tidak timbul keperluan kilang stim milik NSE Resources ini menjadi daya tarikan pelaburan di situ. PETRONAS sudah mempunyai satu kilang iaitu Centralised Utilities Facilities (CUF) yang dimiliki oleh PETRONAS Gas yang menghasilkan stim pada kadar 720 tan sejam atau 6.3 juta tan setahun, iaitu 6 kali ganda yang diperlukan oleh kilang baru milik CJ Arkema itu.
Utusan surat-menyurat yang saya bekalkan hari ini secara jelas menunjukkan penglibatan Dato’ Seri Najib yang mengarahkan supaya dana awam RM100 juta diberikan kepada sebuah syarikat untuk mengusahakan projek komersil yang diragui untung ruginya oleh bank-bank.
Saya pasti geran RM100 juta ini tidak melalui proses saringan teknologi oleh panel pakar R&D yang dilantik oleh MOSTI seperti mana penyelidik-penyelidik tulen terpaksa lalui.
Dato’ Seri Najib tidak boleh terus lari dari persoalan penyelewengan sebegini – atau hanya menyertai larian anti-rasuah – beliau perlu beri penjelasan kerana ada beberapa dokumen lagi yang akan saya dedahkan.

Did someone planned the accident that killed Karpal Singh?

Without fail each week Karpal Singh would go back home to Penang.  It is a routine that every Tom, Dick and Harry knows. Even his office will announce it to whoever is asking to see Karpal on such and such a day. 

So it is not surprising that many people have doubt that this was just an ordinary accident.  Many are questioning whether it was the working of the INVISIBLE FORCE similar to Fuad Stephen's death.

At first I too did not believe that the same INVISIBLE FORCE would do such a thing again but now bit by bit the jig saw puzzle seems to fit the same profile.

The person who shed the first light was of course Zulkifli Nordin then followed by Nawawi Ahmad.

Having Karpal dead was one headache less since the fear of putting Anwar and the former in jail would be a disaster which no-one was willing to shoulder the burden.  Not even the three little piglets who were given a project together with a no need to pay back grant of RM150 million.

Today there is further proof of what the INVISIBLE FORCE is up to.  Be the judge and you will know who the people behind the INVISIBLE FORCE are.

This coming election does not matter who wins in PKR because the fate is already sealed within.


Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been refused an extension of time to file his petition of appeal against his sodomy conviction, PKR legal bureau head Latheefa Koya said.
She said the Federal Court registry instead asked Anwar to file a formal application, which included a notice of motion, to ask for more time to file the grounds of appeal.
"This is despite the fact that they are aware that tomorrow is the last day for filing the petition," said Latheefa.
Latheefa said she was informed of this matter by a lawyer from the legal firm of the late Karpal Singh who was killed in a road mishap last Thursday morning.
Karpal was the lead counsel who appeared for Anwar in the High Court and the Court of Appeal in the sodomy case.
"It is highly inconsiderate and shows a lack of sympathy and understanding over the tragic death of Karpal," said Latheefa.
"It appears the Federal Court is bent on rushing the appeal and this can be seen in their failure to grant an extension of time."
Yesterday, Ramkarpal Singh, who had appeared with Karpal in the sodomy case, said he had written to the Federal Court to ask for an extension of time to file the petition of appeal.
He said he hoped to get a reply today on whether the court would allow up to two weeks to file the grounds of appeal," he said.
The Court of Appeal sent the grounds of judgment to Karpal's firm on April 16, which gave them a 10-day deadline.
Karpal, 73, died in a car crash on April 17 along with his personal aide Michael Cornelius at KM301.6 of the North-South Expressway near Kampar in Perak.
On March 7, the Court of Appeal sentenced Anwar to five years jail after it allowed Putrajaya's appeal to set aside the High Court acquittal.
Putrajaya also filed a cross appeal to seek a longer jail sentence for 66-year-old Anwar.
On the charges, Anwar had always maintained that they were trumped up to stymie his political career. – April 23, 2014.

Malaysian Religious Council gone mad now cannot read books

Hooray Another Muslim Is Charged In Court For Reading Books !!

  • Senior citizen admits keeping books that are against Islamic law
  • A senior citizen pleaded guilty to possessing and keeping two books, which are deemed against Islamic law. 
  • Kamarulzaman Karim was accused of having and keeping the books 
  • The 61-year-old contract worker was charged under Section of the Criminal Offences Act related to religious publication deemed against Islamic Law.
  • If convicted, he would face a fine of not more than RM3,000 or not more than two years' imprisonment or both under the Act. 
  • Kamarulzaman, who was unrepresented, replied: "I am only a contract worker earning more than RM1,000 income a month and I request for a RM1,000 bail".
You know what this is right? In Nigeria it is called Boko Haram. In Malaysia it is called 'Buku haram'. You cannot read any book which the 'authorities' think you should not be reading. 

Here is something for your mental consumption. This is from a book. I will not tell you the name of this book. This book is read in Malaysia by 'scholars' (nauzubillah - May Allah protect us).  Among others it says the following :

1.  retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.”  (In other words there is no punishment for killing your children or grandchildren).
 
2.  if a Muslim deliberately murders another Muslim he falls under the law of retaliation and must by law be put to death by the next of kin.  But if a non-Muslim who dies at the hand of a Muslim, the penalty of death is not valid. Instead the Muslim murderer must pay a fine and be punished with the lash….(If a Muslim kills a non Muslim there is no death penalty for the Muslim.)

3.  if a Muslim commits adultery his punishment is 100 lashes, the shaving of his head, and one year of banishment. But if the man is not a Muslim and commits adultery with a Muslim woman his penalty is execution…(If a Muslim commits adultery it is 100 lashes, if a non Muslim commits adultery with a Muslim woman, he must be killed.)

So what do you think folks? Do you think books that say these type of wild things should be   

a. banned or   
b. forced down the minds of the muslims?

This is what is found written in some of these religious books which have NOT been banned. 

Conclusion : Do you expect the same people who believe in such things to allow other people write books which question such beliefs? I dont think so.

Which is why in intelligent and modern societies, they do not ban books. Especially intellectual books. But this statement is only valid in modern and intellectual societies.

Penang now got INVISIBLE COPS don't play, play

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TODAY THE PENANG POLICE CHIEF HAS DECLARED THE POLICE FORCE HAS TAKEN ONE STEP INTO THE MILLENNIUM  BY BEING INVISIBLE TO THE EYES. THEY ARE THERE BUT ONLY CAN BE SEEN BY THE POLICE CHIEF HIMSELF.
WITH SUCH EYE-SIGHT YOU FOLKS BETTER BE CAREFUL OTHERWISE YOU THINK THE GHOST IS STANDING BESIDE YOU.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION LIKE THE 25,000 PEOPLE WHO ATTENDED THE FUNERAL, I TOO FAIL TO SEE ANY COPS EXCEPT ON THE EVE AT KARPAL'S HOUSE I SAW 4 SPECIAL BRANCH OFFICERS CHECKING AROUND FOR THE WORD 'ALLAH.'

GEORGE TOWN - More than 50 police officers and personnel were on duty throughout the four days people were paying their last respects to the late Bukit Gelugor member of parliament Karpal Singh until his cremation in the Batu Gantung Crematorium here, last Sunday.
Penang police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi said personnel were also stationed at his residence at Jalan Utama and two mobile police stations deployed in the compound of Dewan Sri Pinang during the final paying of respects on Sunday.
"I ordered the traffic police to accompany the hearse when it arrived in Juru all the way to his house at Jalan Utama, on the day he passed away.
Two officers and 20 traffic police were also stationed there (Karpal Singh's residence) to direct traffic and maintain public order," he said.
He was speaking to reporters after launching the Blood Donation Campaign in conjunction with the 207th Police Day celebrations at the Penang police headquarters here today.
It was reported in the Malay Mail today that the state government had hit out at the police for failing to turn up as planned to control the massive crowd gathered at Dewan Sri Pinang to pay their last respects to Karpal Singh on Sunday.
Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng was quoted as saying that the state government would conduct a post-mortem to determine the reasons for the failure of the police to turn up.
Abdul Rahim said two officers and acting state Public Order and Traffic police chief DSP Abdul Rahim Md Din had also attended a meeting with the state government to discuss the final funeral procession route.
He said two officers and 20 traffic personnel were stationed on Sunday during Karpal Singh's funeral procession to the Batu Gantung Crematorium and more than 10 plain clothes policemen were on duty throughout the time people paid their last respect at the Dewan Sri Pinang.
Abdul Rahim said the traffic police were stationed at every junction along the funeral procession until it reached the crematorium namely, Lebuh Farquhar, Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, Jalan Larut, Jalan Burma, Jalan Perak, Jalan Macalister, Jalan Residensi, Jalan Utama and Jalan Scotland.
"The traffic flow was smooth throughout the funeral procession and there were no bad congestion. And so far we have not received any reports about any disturbances or incidents either.
"So I don't understand why the state government is saying the police were not on duty, that's not true. We have photographs to prove it, that the police did their duty to the public," he said.
Karpal Singh, 74, and his personal assistant Michael Cornelius, 39, died in an accident about 1.10 am at KM306.1 of the North-South Highway near Gua Tempurung, Kampar last Thursday. - BERNAMA


Even in death, the Tiger frightens the UMNO Government

Education Ministry says no to use of school hall for Karpal’s memorial service

The organisers for Karpal Singh's memorial service, DAP, said today the Education Ministry has denied it the use of SJKC Chung Kwo hall in Jalan Loke Yew on the grounds that it was a political event.


karpal memorial
The organisers for Karpal Singh's memorial service, DAP, said today the Education Ministry has denied it the use of SJKC Chung Kwo hall in Jalan Loke Yew on the grounds that it was a political event. The Bukit Gelugor MP and veteran lawyer died in a car crash last Thursday.

Acting DAP chairman Tan Kok Wai said at a press conference that prior to this, the party had always used the school hall for various programmes, but was informed by the school authorities today that the ministry had rejected the application.

"We submitted the request on Monday, but at 9am today, it was rejected," Tan told reporters at the DAP headquarters in Kuala Lumpur today.

The party had often used the hall for its fund-raising activities and had also raised funds for the construction of the school hall.

Tan, however, did not blame the school authorities as they had to abide by the ministry's orders.

Instead, he said that this appeared to be a political agenda by the Barisan Nasional government.

"There is surely a political agenda here, but this is not even a political event, it is a gathering to honour the late Karpal Singh.

"They not only feared him when he was alive, BN is also scared of him after his death.”

Given the objection by the ministry, the memorial event will now take place at the Kuala Lumpur Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall at 8pm tomorrow.

Those expected at the event include Karpal's son, Gobind Singh Deo, opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, national laureate Datuk A. Samad Said, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, former Malaysian Bar president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan, DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang and Pas deputy president Mohamad Sabu. - April 23, 2014.
