You Go, MACC!

You'd know by now that the Malaysian Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has been pretty busy these past few months.

The latest is the Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) case. Not an easy one this case. 

The alleged improprieties that warranted MACC investigations aside, the damn case is all about boardroom tussle. That seems to be something everyone recognises.
What a shame that it has got to that.

Meanwhile, MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Azam Baki was quoted to have said that FGV"s two key figures may be called up to assist in investigations. They are FGV chairman Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad and chief executive officer Datuk Zakaria Arshad .

He also said another 50 people would also be asked to assist.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razk has appointed Pemandu Associates CEO Datuk Seri Idris Jala as an independent party to establish the facts of the case behind the FGV controversy.

Last Saturday, Najib said in appointing Idris said it was important for all parties to establish the facts of the case in the FGV boardroom tussle as that was the best way for them to seek a solution that would bring the company forward.

Felda chairman Tan Sri Shahrir Abdul Samad will be briefing Najib today on the issue.
Shahrir has expressed confidence that the issue could be resolved before Raya.

A real shame that this is happening to Felda - a rural resettlement agency that has grown into an economic powerhouse.
Back to MACC -- I say, you're doing a good job!

Hi Nuraina,long time no see.Hope everything is fine on your side.The last time I was on your blog,we were talking about the "groper in chief",Donald Trump.Look how fast time flies.The next time we talk,Donald Trump might be out of the white house. Obstruction of justice is the least of Donald Trump's nightmares.

During the nineties,when Donald Trump's casinos were going down like dominoes,no US banks were willing to lend any more money to him.Donald Trump was on the brink of personal bankruptcy,vulnerable,he fell into the hands of the Russians and Eastern European mobsters.He was into money laundering for the Russians and Eastern European gangsters.See the love fest between Donald and Putin?Donald is so much in love with Putin.

The recently appointed special counsel,Mueller and his top notch lawyers are going to follow the money trail,going many years back.It will lead back to how money went into Trump's personal account from many mysterious Russian and mob connected bank accounts from Europe.Maybe Trump cannot be indicted because he is the president,but many members of his family and campaign surrogates might go to prison if it can be proven.This is the reason why Donald Trump is trying to stop the investigation into Russian meddling in US presidential elections.

Back to Felda,Umno should not have allowed Isa Samad to stand in the by-election.Isa Samad's appointment as chairman of Felda was a reward for saving face for BN.For winning the by-election and stop BN from getting seven or eight duck eggs in a row.One must know what are the consequences for putting a fox in charge of the henhouse.What Felda had achieved in more than half a century,it took Isa Samad a handful of years to tear it down.Our leaders must make it a point that politicians or cronies should never be appointed to head GLC's.Only career civil servants or professionals who outshine in the private sectors be appointed to head GLC's.This is the only way to minimize corruption in the government or semi government sectors.

Have a wonderful weekend.Cheers.

As for Isa-- wonders never cease, And our leaders never learn.
