Bila lagi Peguam Negara mahu bertindak..?!

August 23, 2016

Bila lagi Peguam Negara mahu bertindak ?

  1. Sangat malang, ketika Peguam Negara dari jabatan Kehakiman, Amerika Syarikat (DoJ), Peguam Negara Switzerland bersekali dengan Money Authority of Singapore (MAS) yang merupakan Bank Pusat negara itu, telah semua bertindak ke atas pesalah-pesalah dan perbankan yang terlibat dalam ‘konspirasi antarabangsa’ dalam pengsonglapan dana 1-MDB, termasuk memulakan ‘forfeiture of assets’ seumpama dilakukan DoJ, Peguam Negara Malaysia mendakwa segala-gala masih lagi dalam tahap siasatan.
  2. Peguam Negara Malaysia adalah merupakan seorang penasihat undang-undang utama kerajaan Malaysia sekaligus juga merupakan Peguam dan Pendakwa Raya bagi Kerajaan. Bidang kuasa dan tugas Peguam Negara diperuntukkan dalam Perkara 145 Perlembagaan Persekutuan. Beliau seorang seorang shj yang berkuasa mendakwa!
  3. Kalau benar-benar kita tidak mempunyai kemampuan untuk menyiasat secara forensik dan cekap, bukanlah lebih baik kita membantu segala siasatan yang sedang dilakukan oleh jurisdiksi negara-negara asing tersebut. Lagi pun yang didakwa dirompak adalah syarikat milik Malaysia dan milik rakyat Malaysia seluruhnya.
  4. Sesungguhnya kita tidak perlu tunggu dan lihat apa kesudahan kes saman sivil yang difailkan oleh DoJ di United State District Court, di Los Angeles, California sebelum kita bertindak dalam jurisdiksi atau kerangka perundangan negara kita yang berdaulat yang mendukungi Kedaulatan Undang-Undang atau Rule of Law.
  5. Sudah cukup bukti prima facie untuk Shahrol Azral Helmi, Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif (CEO) 1-MDB (dulunya Terengganu Investment Authority-TIA) untuk didakwa atas pelbagai kesalahan. Kalau kita membaca dengan teliti Laporan PAC tersebut (dari muka surat 98 – 101), Shahrol telah melanggari serta membelakangi Lembaga Pengarah (BOD) sebanyak 19X, menipu (deceived) BOD 6X dan menipu 3X pihak Auditor.
  6. Laporan PAC juga telah secara khusus (di muka surat 106) menyebutkan…PAC berpendapat bahawa mantan Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif (CEO), Datuk Shahrol Azral Ibrahim Halmi perlu mengambil tanggungjawab untuk kelemahan dan kekakngan-kekangan tersebut. Oleh itu, pihak agensi penguatkuasa diminta untuk membuat siasatan.
  7. Pelanggaran pertama dalam terbitan ‘Islamic Medium Term Notes (IMTN), bermula Mac 2009 lagi, yang justeru kerana tidak diambil tindakan secara tegaslah, pada pandangan saya, adalah penyebab seluruh kegiatan pengsonglapan yang sememang jelasnya seperti didakwa DoJ sebagai satu rancangan ‘international conspiracy’ untuk ‘merompak’ 1MDB oleh pegawai-pegawai tinggi 1-MDB dan seluruh kuncu-kuncu antarabangsanya dapat dilangsungkan bermaharajalela selama hampir 5 tahun (2009-2014).
  8. Bermula di situlah..seperti yang dokumen DoJ (136 ms) sifatkan sebagai “Jalur Good Star”, kemudian diikuti dengan “Jalur Aabar-BVI” dan akhirnya “Jalur Tanore”. Rompakan sempurna dengan tahap terkahir ‘Jalur SRC International’ (tidak dilaporkan DoJ. Terdapat dalam WSJ -sumber oleh Msian Investigators). Sebahagian dana yang dirompak inilah (dari keempat2 jalur) yang dipindahkan ke Amerika Syarikat (kurang lebih US$3.5b atau RM14.1b) dengan pelbagai cara atau kaedah “layering’ (perpindahan berlapis-lapis) dan kemudian digunakan membeli pelbagai aset hartanah mewah, jet peribadi, yatch mewah, berjudi dsbnya. Tindakan DoJ adalah ke atas ‘wang haram’ ini yang dibawa masuk ke perbankan di USA untuk “dicuci atau didobi” (laundry) dengan pembelian aset-aset mewah ini…..
  9. Untuk ingatan umum dan rakyat seluruh, terbitan IMTN pertama itu sebanyak RM5,000,000,000 menggunakan prinsip Murabahah dengan kadar keuntungan (profit rate) pada 5.75% akan matang pada 2039.
  10. Pada 2039 nanti jumlah kupon seluruhnya (finally) yang telah dibayar adalah RM6,612,500,000 dan dengan bayaran balik pokok principle (nilai asal atau face value – at par) sebanyak RM5,000,000,000 maka jumlah besarnya (total obligation) 1-MDB (kini dibayar Kerajaan) ialah sebanyak RM11,612,500,000!
  11. Manakan hendak dicari sumber dana untuk membayar semua ini, sebab 1-MDB tidak punya apa-apa pendapatan ‘cashflow’ atau ‘income stream’ (pendapatan) dari pinjaman RM5b IMTN ini?!…akhirnya tentu akan diBailout oleh Kerajaan dan dibayar Rakyat! Terkini, jumlah hutang 1-MDB telah mencecah 5% (RM50b) dari GDP (KDNK-RM1000b)…Bunga atau interest sahaja sudah cukup membebankan…kalau dikenakan contoh 5% bunga atau interest adalah sebanyak RM2.5b setahun atau RM208juta sebulan…dan ini bayaran Bunga atau Interest sahaja! Celakalah kesemua penyangak yang terlibat menjahanamkan kewangan dan sumber kekayaan negara ini! Anda adalah sangat khianat kepada Rakyat dan Negara !!! Bayangkan berapa banyak bantuan dan projek yang kita boleh bangunkan untuk rakyat…sekolah, hospital, perumahan dan universiti!
  12. Bila lagi hendak kita saksikan Peguam Negara bertindak? Kalau Peguam Negara takut untuk bertindak ke atas Pengerusi Lembaga Penasihat 1-MDB, kerana beliaulah pada hakikatnya yang bertanggungjawab ke atas 1-MDB ciptaannya itu juga, paling tidaknya mulakan dengan mantan CEO 1-MDB itu…! Jangan tangguh-tangguh lagi….! Amarah rakyat sudah tidak dapat dikawal lagi..Justice Delayed Is Just Denied!

Ringgit sinks as crude’s tumble bodes ill for Malaysia finances

Ringgit sinks as crude’s tumble bodes ill for Malaysia finances

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 2): The ringgit led a decline in Asian currencies as slumping oil prices dim the prospects for Malaysia’s export earnings.

Brent crude sank 0.8% to close at its lowest level in four months on Monday, and US oil slid into a bear market amid renewed concern there is a global supply glut. While prices rebounded on Tuesday, Brent is still down about 19% from this year’s high in June. Malaysia loses RM450 million (US$112 million) in annual income for every US$1 drop in oil and the nation derives about a fifth of its revenue from energy-related sources.

“The wider story is the oil price slippage for the past few weeks,” said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist at Mizuho Bank Ltd in Singapore. “In Malaysia’s case, oil has the most pronounced effect, so that’s keeping the ringgit in check.”

The ringgit weakened as much as 1% before ending 0.3% lower at 4.0345 per dollar in Kuala Lumpur, according to prices from local banks compiled by Bloomberg. It has lost 0.9% in the past one month, the worst performance in Asia.

Ten-year government bonds fell, pushing the yield up three basis points to 3.62%, according to prices from Bursa Malaysia. The five-year yield also climbed three basis points to 3.24%.

Malaysia seems to be sinking fast…1MDB scandal may see us a credit rating and outlook downgrade

July 29, 2016

The 1MDB saga and other issues paint a picture of a nation that is in deep trouble, without a solution in sight.

Dzulkefly Ahmad

by Dzulkefly Ahmad

Now that events have unfolded to give us a better understanding of the scandal associated with 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), we may ask a pertinent question: is our troubled nation going into a tail-spin? God forbid.

But let us face the facts and consider the possible outcomes.

US prosecutors alleged last week that more than USD3.5 billion (RM14.6 billion) had been siphoned from 1MDB. They said the money, which was meant to benefit the Malaysian people, was diverted towards the purchase of real estate and artwork and to pay casino bills.

It is most damning to the Malaysian government that the US lawsuits represent an attempt to make the biggest ever forfeiture of assets that had gone through that country’s financial system. Consider how big a shame it is to Malaysia that it is the US Department of Justice, not our Attorney-General’s Chambers, that is assuming the role of plaintiff, seeking to forfeit assets amounting to USD1 billion (RM4 billion).

And when our AG, Apandi Ali, described the US allegations as “insinuations”, one of Malaysia’s most critical institutions became regrettably perceived as being on the brink of disaster. Apandi should have been ashamed to hear his US counterpart, Loretta Lynch, asserting that the ultimate goal of the civil suits was to return the money to the people of Malaysia.

The revelations in the US have given us enough reason to suspect that something was amiss in the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s decision to absolve 1MDB of any wrongdoing.

The police, meanwhile, are preoccupied with apprehending those who express legitimate dissent on the issue, using draconian laws such as the Sedition Act and the Prevention of Terrorism Act. There’s little doubt that the National Security Council Act will also be used to suppress dissent when it comes into effect. Malaysia is virtually becoming a police state.

In addition, numerous attempts to get the Speaker of Parliament to allow debate on the issue have come to naught, strengthening the impression that the legislative branch of government is nothing more than a rubber stamp for the executive branch.

And there’s more bad news. According to an exposé by Sarawak Report, the cost of the East Coast Rail Project has been inflated from RM30 billion to RM60 billion in an alleged secret deal with China. The purpose of the deal, it further alleged, was to enable the payment of 1MDB’s debts.

The rotting of Malaysia has been going on for some time, and it looks like we have reached a critical stage. We may be witnessing the final phase of a state’s failure.

The fact is that Malaysian democracy has been in dire straits for a long time and our systemic failures, if not seriously addressed, could well result in a downgrading of Malaysia’s sovereign rating and credit outlook.

A downgrade by rating agencies will be all it takes to trigger an implosion of the economy. The trouble is that no viable solution is in sight.

1MDB scandal may see us a credit rating and outlook downgrade (MKini)


Dzulkefly Ahmad     Published and Updated 28 Jul 2016, 12:39 pm

 

 With the spectre of all the events that have unfolded very recently, are we about to witness a very troubled nation going into a tailspin? God forbid. But let us face the facts and arguably the imminent outcomes.

Malaysian democracy has indeed been in dire straits for a prolonged while and the systemic failure, if not seriously mitigated, could very well result in a downgrading of Malaysia’s sovereign rating and credit outlook.

Firstly, when the attorney-general of Malaysia was visibly clueless, and rebutted the civil suit filed by the attorney-general of the United State of America as “insinuations and allegations”, Malaysia’s most critical institution is regrettably perceived as dysfunctional.

The US prosecutors alleged last week that more than US$3.5 billion (RM14.6 billion) had been siphoned from the 1Malaysia Development Fund (1MDB). This money, they argued, were to benefit the Malaysian people but had allegedly been diverted to purchase real estate, artwork and pay for casino bills.

Most ironical, it is the US that is now assuming the role of a plaintiff, seeking to restrain and forfeit the 17 assets belonging to named individuals – the Red Granite Pictures Inc and its affiliates, including but not limited to the ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ motion picture (the defendant), amounting to US$1 billion (RM4 billion).

US doing our job

Most ashamedly unto Malaysia’s AG Mohamed Apandi Ali, was when Loretta Lynch, the AG of the American Department of Justice (DOJ), asserted that the ultimate goal is to return the funds to the people of Malaysia, funds believed to have been misappropriated (stolen) from 1MDB, to the tune of about US$3.5 billion (RM14.6 billion).

That this is the biggest ever forfeiture of assets that has gone through the US financial system, to be embarked by the US government in combating kleptocracy and the worst money laundering scam in the world, is most damning to Malaysia.

That the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) had also in the recent past absolved 1MDB of any wrongdoing is most bemusing, much as it had generated extreme outrage, malice and contempt.

While the police are preoccupied with apprehending legitimate dissent on the 1MDB, using draconian laws like the Sedition Act, the Prevention of Terrorism Act (Pota) and soon the newly minted National Security Council Act (NSC), the nation has inadvertently slipped into a ‘police state’, aggravating the state of fear amongst it citizenry.

The numerous attempts to get the speaker of the bicameral Parliament to convene and debate on the heinous scandal of1MDB have come to naught. Much less to be able to table a vote of no confidence on the prime minister.

It does not take a pundit to tell us that the above events have indeed demolished any semblance of a working legislative branch of the government, long known to be a rubber-stamp of the executives in Putrajaya.

The rot in Malaysia that has been going on for some time now has surely reached a critical juncture. Now we are truly witnessing a failing state, a Mugabeland of sorts.

The latest expose by Sarawak Report of an allegedly inflated project for the East Coast Rail Project from RM30 billion to RM60 billion – an alleged secret deal with China to pay off 1MDB’s debt – if found true, would be most devastating.Briefly put, a credit and outlook downgrade by credit rating agencies will be all it takes to trigger an implosion of the economy, and with it, perhaps the suffering rakyat.

Worse, no viable solution is in sight even after the intervention of the Conference of Rulers. The prognosis is surely getting more grim by the day.

‘Umno, act now or be consigned to the dustbin of history’…

July 23, 2016

https://mk-cdn.mkini.net/808/821f26d6e02ecf7049511703dc6f6181.jpg

The frantic attempts of both the press secretary of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and 1MDB to placate the mounting anger of the Malaysian citizenry is pathetic and frivolous.

Both have emphatically stressed that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and the bi-partisan Public Account Committee (PAC) have found no crime was committed. But both have conveniently forgotten to note that the entire nation, nay the entire world, are aware of the damning expose of the plethora of alleged crimes committed, as per the leaked auditor-general’s report.

Now, most devastating is the fact that the attorney-general of the United States, Loretta Lynch, made it official yesterday that after over a year of thorough investigation, at least US$3.5 billion (RM14.16b) belonging to the Malaysian people has been stolen.

Inter alia, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the US Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Internal Revenue Service (the US tax revenue agency) have concluded that the Malaysian people were robbed.

They have conclusively arrived at their findings that the co-conspirators “laundered their stolen funds through a complex webs of opaque transactions and fraudulent shelf companies and bank accounts around the world including Switzerland, Singapore and the United States..” The word ‘stolen’ was repeated many times.

It is an open secret now that Prime Minister Najib, who created and led 1MDB, worked hand-in-glove with flamboyant businessman Low Taek Jho or Jho Low. The US Justice Department report listed three other 1MDB officials who were involved in this alleged fraud and the ‘Malaysia Official No 1′, irrespective of who the person is.

In a strange and weird move, when all avenues of imploring authorities including the attorney-general, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), Bank Negara Malaysia, the police and finally the Council of Rulers, l have no qualms to implore the supreme council of Umno (majlis tertinggi Umno), their Members of Parliament and the entire Umno fraternity, to act in unison to save the party they claimed to love and more importantly, to save the nation and the rakyat of Malaysia.

If you disappoint and fail the nation again, rest assured that you will be consigned to the dustbin of history as the alleged ‘Traitors of the Nation’ – Pengkhianat Negara.

After all efforts of debunking and unseating the PM have failed, the supreme council is the last bastion as to get rid of Najib, the man who allegedly single-handedly usurped all powers and is allegedly responsible for bringing this failing nation into a tail-spin and the abyss of destruction.

The nation and its leaders from both sides of the political divide must patriotically be committed to an immediate comprehensive reform agenda and turn around the nation to become both a vibrant and functional democracy.

Time to rise above partisan and self-interest, and be counted as the true patriots, regardless of our ideoligical conviction and political persuasion.

DoJ suit: Amanah wants Umno Supreme Council to act

| July 21, 2016

Amanah Strategic Director Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad says Prime Minister Najib Razak is ultimately morally responsible for the sovereign fund.

Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad

PETALING JAYA: Amanah’s Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad has called on the Umno Supreme Council to save its party.

In a statement, Dzulkefly said the United States Department of Justice’s (DoJ) civil suit highlighted how 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) funds were misappropriated and said that at the end of the day, the buck stopped with Prime Minister Najib Razak.

He said as the chairman of 1MDB’s board of advisers, Najib had a fiduciary role, and ultimately, was morally responsible for the fund and whatever happened to it.

Dzulkefly said that the Umno Supreme Council was the “last bastion” to remove Najib.

“It is time to rise above partisan and self interests, and be counted as the true patriots, regardless of our ideological conviction and political persuasion.”

He added that the nation and its leaders on both sides of the political divide must be committed to an immediate comprehensive reform agenda and turn around the nation to become both a vibrant and functional democracy.

The DoJ filed lawsuits yesterday saying that over USD3.5 billion was misappropriated from 1MDB.
In its lawsuits, filed in Los Angeles, the DoJ said it sought to seize assets purchased using money allegedly misappropriated from 1MDB.

Apa ataukah Siapa yang mahu diselamatkan Salleh Keruak?

July 10, 2016

 

1. Kenyataan Menteri Komunikasi dan Mutimedia DS Salleh Keruak adalah amat mengecewakan umum. Menuntut supaya satu siasatan segera dan mendalam dibuat olih pihak Polis tentang kebocoran Laporan Ketua Audit Negara (AG) tentang 1-MDB, yang didedahkan Sarawak Report (SR) beberapa hari lalu, menyerlahkan sifat sebuah kerajaan yang terpisah dari rakyatnya dan sangat angkuh.

2. Sementara tumpuan rakyat mahukan campurtangan Majlis Raja-Raja bagi membolihkan Laporan AG itu didiklasifikasikan dari status dokumen Akta Rahsia Rasmi (OSA, 1972), supaya membolihkan pelbagai ‘pendedahan celaka’ (damning expose’) dari SR itu disahtentukan (verification), tumpuan tuntutan Salleh Keruak ternyata tersasar.

3. Menteri tersebut mungkin perlu diperingatkan bahawa OSA, antara lain, bertujuan untuk mengelakkan perlakuan jenayah dan bukan untuk melindungi jenayah. OSA bukan Akta atau Undang-undang untuk pertahankan atau menyimpan rahsia pihak yang salah khasnya bagi pemegang jawatan awam, samada untuk melindungi menteri hatta perdana menteri sendiri.

4. Persoalan yang dituntut rakyat ialah apakah perihal strategik atau keselamatan negara yang akan terjejas lalu perlu diletakkan Laporan AG tentang 1-MDB itu sebagai dokumen OSA?

5. Kalaulah Laporan Jawatankuasa Kira-Kira Awam Negara (PAC) tentang 1MDB yang dibentangkan di Parlimen lalu, sudah cukup sarat dengan pelbagai salah-laku, urusniaga kontroversi, pelanggaran pelbagai peraturan dan ketidakpatuhan tadbir-urus (governance), maka perihal pendedahan lebih detail tentang Laporan AG itu seperti didedahkan SR kini, pastinya lebih panas dan menjahanamkan (damning).

6. Maka apakah yang sebenar-benarnya dihebohkan dan digusarkan Salleh Keruak itu? Bukankah beliau sepatutnya turut menuntut pengurusan 1MDB untuk bertangungjawab tentang kehilangan dana sebanyak US$6.7bilion (RM26bilion) itu? Apakah maksud Salleh mempertikaikan tentang kedaulatan, integriti atau maruah wibawa negara yang terjejas akibat pendedahan Laporan SR itu?

7. Bukankah negara telah hilang wibawa dan maruah rakyat tercalar di kacamata masyarakat antarabangsa, sejak ‘skandal rompakan 1-MDB terdahsyat kurun ini’ atau “1-MDB: The Heist of the Century” mula-mula diberi tumpuan dan jolokan oleh media Barat seumpama “The New York Time” seawal Februari 2015 ?

8. Tidak ada jalan dan cara lebih baik untuk membaikpulih integriti dan kedaulatan negara di kacamata dunia, kecuali dengan menambahbaik fungsi institusi-institusi kritikal semak-imbang negara seperti SPRM, Parlimen, Judisiari-Peguam Negara dan badan-badan penguatkuasa seperti PDRM, BNM dan SPR.

9. Bagaimanakah mahu dibaikpulih integriti dan tahap kepercayaan kepada negara apabila tidak kurang dari 7 jurisdiksi atau undang-undang negara asing termasuk Switzerland, Singapore, the US, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom, sedang melakukan siasatan forensik terhadap pelbagai kegiatan jenayah kewangan termasuk pengubahan wang haram (money-laundering) dan pengsonglapan (embezzlement) 1-MDB?

10. Tegasnya, beberapa individu pengurusan tertinggi syarikat kewangan antarabangsa telah dipecat dan ada yang ditahan pihak berkuasa. Sebuah perbankan Swiss di Singapura, BSI Bank sedang berdepan rayuan ketika dikenakan tindakan penalti US$100 juta (RM400 juta) oleh pihak penguasa kewangan Switzerland (Finma) kerana terlibat dengan pelanggaran ‘akta anti-penggubahan wang haram’ dalam urusniaga bersabit 1-MDB.

11. Lalu rakyat menuntut diperjelaskan;

Apakah aspek keselamatan dan integriti negara yang mahu diselamatkan Salleh Keruak?

Atau lebih tepat lagi;

Siapakah yang mahu diselamatkan Salleh Keruak?

What national security is Salleh talking about?

Why is the minister so frantic about the leaked documents when he should be equally concerned and outraged by the colossal amount of public funds allegedly embezzled by top executives at 1MDB?

COMMENT

Dzulkefly-Ahmad_salleh-keruak_6001

By Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad

1. The statement made by Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak couldn’t come at a worse time. Pressing for an urgent and expeditious investigation by the Police, on the leaked Auditor-General’s report, smacks of a government that is aloof, oblivious and arrogant.

2. Coming close on the heel of the clarion call by the rakyat for the Rulers’ Conference to declassify the AG’s report, as to ascertain the authenticity and accuracy of Sarawak Report’s damning expose a few days ago, Salleh’s outburst is entirely misplaced, nay atrocious.

3. The minister does not require reminding that the Official Secret Act 1972 is supposed to help prevent crime and not to cover it up, much less justify the unjustifiable and defend the indefensible, on any abuse of power by any public office-bearers including ministers acting to protect themselves or even to protect a Prime Minister.

4. Arguably, one could ask; what critical strategic or national security risk is at stake in the issue of 1MDB? It has now come to be known to the entire nation, nay the entire world, after the presentation of the PAC Report to the Parliament, of investigation carried out by the Auditor-General’s Department of the many dubious, controversial breaches and some outrightly non-compliant transactions by 1MDB, ever since the first issuance of the Islamic Medium Term Note (IMTN) back in September 2009.

5. So why is the minister so frantic about the leaked document? Shouldn’t he be equally concerned and outraged by the colossal amount of public funds that has been embezzled by unscrupulous top executives of the 1MDB? What providence on integrity and sovereignty of the nation is he talking about?

6. The nation has indeed lost much of its goodwill and integrity in the eyes of the global community. The surest way to regain it back is to ensure that the critical institutions of the nation are again made vibrant and functional.

7. What do we expect of the perception among the international community, when at least seven jurisdictions including Switzerland, Singapore, the US, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom, are conducting forensic investigations into the MOF’s wholly-owned strategic fund, 1MDB.

8. Legal actions against top individuals in some financial companies globally, allegedly complicit to money-laundering and embezzlement activities, are already instituted.

9. Specifically, private Swiss bank BSI (Singapore) is now struggling to appeal against a 95 million Swiss franc (US$100 million) penalty issued by Switzerland’s financial regulator (Finma) over the lender’s ties to 1Malaysia Development Bhd and for breaking anti-money laundering rules which “severely harmed the reputation of the bank and its employees”.

9. So what is Salleh Keruak’s ultimate objectives after all? Which national security is he securing?

1MDB: Makin kalut jika Majlis Raja-raja tidak campurtangan untuk ‘Selamatkan Negara’.

July 8, 2016

| July 8, 2016

Raja-raja perlu beritahu kerajaan supaya dedahkan laporan siasatan Ketua Audit Negara keatas 1MDB supaya kesahihan dakwaan Sarawak Report boleh ditentukan dan bahana kemuflisan Kementerian Kewangan (MOF) akibat tindakan IPIC di Mahkamah Timbangtara pada 11 Julai

dzulkrfly_raja-raja_600_2

KUALA LUMPUR: Majls Raja-raja digesa campurtangan hal 1Malaysia Development Berhad dan “selamatkan negara ini”.

Sebagai langkah pertama, Pengarah Strategi Amanah Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad berkata Majlis Raja-raja perlu berkeras laporan siasatan Ketua Audit Negara kepada Parlimen yang dirahsikan dibawah Akta Rahsia Rasmi diubah statusnya.

Langkah itu perlu memandangkan dakwaan terbaharu Sarawak Report berhubung isi kandungan laporan Ketua Audit Negara itu sangat mengejutkan.

Beliau berkata mengubah status laporan itu akan membantu mengesahkan kesahihan dakwaan Sarawak Report dan “isu-isu lain yang tidak dijawab oleh laporan Jawatankuasa Kira-kira Wang Negara”.

Beliau berkata perincian Sarawak Report yang bertujuan dijadikan suatu dedahan itu “menggambarkan keadaan kelam-kabut, percanggahan dan kekeliruan keatas pelbagai urus niaga 1-MDB”. Ia juga mendedahkan ulasan profesional Peguam Negara berhubung skandal 1MDB.

“Perkara-perkara itu perlu ditentusahkan segera,” tambahnya.

Dzulkefly berkata pendedahan Sarawak Report dedahan yang paling menjahamkan.

Beliau berkata, disamping itu, Kementerian Kewangan dan 1MDB perlu melangsaikan komitmennya kepada International Petroleum Investment Company (IPC) yang berjumlah USD$6.5 bilion (RM26bilion) di Mahkamah Timbangtara Antarabangsa London (LICA) 11 Julai ini.

Tarikh tutup ditetapkan LCIA selepas IPIC dan anak syarikat Aabar Investments PJS memfail pada 13 Jun 2016.

“Oleh sebab sudah jadi begini, rakyat merayu Majlis Raja-raja supaya menggunakan kuasa yang ada (Reserved Power) untuk segera campurtangan dan selamatkan negara ini.

“Kekalutan akan bertambah buruk dan rakyat akan terawang-awang sekiranya institusi tertinggi negara teragak-agak atau tidak bersungguh bertindak dan mengantarai,” katanya.

Memperkukuh Pakatan Harapan Sebagai Pencabar Utama Umno-BN dalam PRK dan PRU ke-14……Bersiapsiaga !

May 15, 2016

 

KENYATAAN MEDIA PARTI AMANAH NEGARA BERHUBUNG PILIHAN RAYA KECIL (PRK) P.093 SUNGAI BESAR DAN P.067 KUALA KANGSAR

1. Parti Amanah Negara (AMANAH) tidak mengeluarkan apa-apa kenyataan berhubung Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) di dua kawasan Parlimen ini kerana mempraktikkan semangat setiakawan dan kejujuran berpakat sepertimana yang sepatutnya wujud dalam Pakatan Harapan (PH).

2. Kenyataan berhubung dua pilihan raya kecil ini sewajarnya dibincang dan dipersetujui dahulu di dalam mesyuarat Majlis Presiden PH khasnya setelah berlakunya kecelaruan semasa pilihan raya negeri Sarawak. AMANAH yakin tiada mana-mana rakan PH yang mahu melihat pengalaman buruk tempoh hari berulang.

3. AMANAH amat menghargai cadangan pelbagai pihak dan individu pimpinan parti berhubung kedua-dua PRK ini. Namun, AMANAH menegaskan bahawa tiada yang muktamad sehingga diputuskan dalam mesyuarat majlis Presiden Pakatan Harapan.

4. Budaya kenyataan dan tindakan unilateral boleh diamalkan oleh pihak lain tetapi AMANAH menegaskan ianya tidak boleh dan tidak wajar menjadi amalan Pakatan Harapan. Atas keinginan dan komitmen terhadap pendekatan muafakat politik yang jujur dan ikhlas ini, maka AMANAH ditubuhkan meskipun ada yang terpaksa meninggalkan parti asal mereka.

5. AMANAH mahukan PRK ini dijadikan medan memperkukuh Pakatan Harapan sekaligus membina keyakinan rakyat terhadap keutuhan dan kesungguhan Pakatan Harapan mencabar BN sebagai kerajaan menanti.

6. AMANAH berpendapat bahawa dua PRK ini mesti dilihat dalam perspektif yang tepat dengan matlamat yang khusus. Ia mesti dilihat dalam rangka membina kekuatan PH dalam mendepani PRU14. Implikasi baik buruk terhadap PRU14 perlu dihadam dengan jelas (Fiqh Al-Maalat/Fiqh Kesan-Konsekuensi).

7. AMANAH secara konsisten menyeru semua pihak, khususnya rakan PH, untuk menggembleng seluruh kekuatan pembangkang termasuk mereka yang ingin sekadar menyingkir Najib, di belakang PH. Tidak perlu dan jangan ada usaha mencari formula mahupun pendekatan yang lain.

8. Mesyuarat AMANAH peringkat Nasional hari ini telah membuat penilaian dan analisa berhubung PRK Sungai Besar dan Kuala Kangsar. AMANAH akan mengesyorkan tindakan sewajarnya kepada Mesyuarat Majlis Presiden Pakatan Harapan;

i. Syor yang dibawa AMANAH bertujuan mengukuhkan kedudukan PH sebagai satu-satunya saingan yang serius terhadap BN yang bertujuan menggantikannya sebagai kerajaan dan bukan sekadar meletakkan PH sebagai pembangkang kuat mahupun sekadar penasihat.

ii. AMANAH menyeru semua pihak supaya meletakkan keyakinan penuh terhadap PH. Tumpukan usaha kepada pengukuhan PH dan menanamkan kefahaman bahawa persaingan antara BN dan PH perlu diutamakan.

iii. Persaingan ini perlu dibawa ke PRU14 supaya PH dilihat sebagai satu-satunya saingan untuk membentuk sebuah kerajaan baru.

9. Demi mencapai kemenangan ke atas kerajaan BN yang telah lama mengabaikan hak dan kepentingan rakyat, kerja-kerja mengukuhkan PH secara bulat dan muktamad perlu dilakukan sekarang!

“Harapan Baru”
