Suhakam - Another Agency of BN?

A reader of Malaysiakini comment and question Suhakam;

"Suhakam members are all appointed by Barisan National and are beholden to BN. Why not appoint a few from the opposition, are they not Malaysians?"

Here is the List of Suhakam Commission-er:

Suruhanjaya SUHAKAM's member appointed for session 2008/2010 was:

Tan Sri Abu Talib Othman - Chairman

Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Simon Sipaun - Vice Chairman

Datuk Dr. Chiam Heng Keng

Dr. Mohammad Hirman Ritom Abdullah

Tan Sri Dato' Asiah Abu Samah

Datuk Dr. Raj Abdul Karim

Dato' Dr. Abdul Monir Yaacob

Dato' Choo Siew Kioh

Tunku Datuk Nazihah Tunku Mohamed Rus

Prof.Tan Sri Dr. Khoo Kay Kim

Dato' Muhammad Shafee Abdullah

Dato' Siva Subramaniam A/L Nagaratnam

Datuk Dr. Denison Jayasooria

Dato' Dr. Michael Yeoh Onn Kheng

Datin Paduka Zaitoon Dato' Othman

Dato' Khalid Haji Ibrahim

 Note: One easy way to identify a BN nominee, just check the title in front of the names as there are not too many Tan Sris or Datuks from the opposition, maybe only a handful of Datuks in the opposition and they are all former BN of course, having obtained their title when they were in BN.

The Star Cosy Relationship with Convicted Criminals

I am one of the many victims of Ooi Boon Leong, the former director of MEMS TECHNOLOGY BERHAD who was convicted with his CFO, both who were convicted at the Sessions Court on 25th February.

The funny thing is that there was a Star Online article on the conviction, the same article NEVER made in to the Star proper !

There is a pattern here. In April 2009, the same 2 directors were reported be charged and reported
in the Star Online and amazing enough, it also was not published in the Star proper.

One wonders whether the editors at the Star were persuaded not to do so with an incentive. BTW, I had alerted Datuk Wong Chun Wai via his New Malaysia Blog but he chose not to publish this alert of mine. Wong Chun Wai is a Penang Lang and so is OBL... Is there a connection ? I think OTK must know about this abomination.

Please read the following Star Online article as follows :-

Former directors fined RM300,000 each for overstating revenue (Updated)
KUALA LUMPUR: Two former directors of a public-listed company were fined RM300,000 each by a Sessions Court here on Thursday after they admitted to overstating RM30mil in their investment holding company’s revenue.

Ooi Boon Leong, 49, was a director and an audit committee member of MEMS Technology Bhd while Tan Yeow Teck, 49, was its chief financial officer and an executive director.

In sentencing, Sessions Court judge Asmadi Hussin ordered each accused to pay his fine or serve two years in jail.

The two were said to have knowingly authorised the furnishing of a misleading statement to Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd in Bukit Kewangan on Sept 27, 2007.

The misleading statement is contained in the report “MEMS Technology Berhad Condensed Consolidated Income Statements for the 12-month period ended July 31, 2007.”

Upon hearing their verdict, the two, who had resigned from their posts, were composed.

Pleading for leniency, their lawyer Francis Ng Aik Guan asked the court to consider that his clients had already been publicly reprimanded and fined by Bursa Malaysia for overlapping breaches pertaining to the same unaudited accounts for that financial year.

Ng said Ooi had been fined RM89,000 while Tan had been fined RM197,500 in October 2008.

He said both would be disqualified from holding directors’ positions upon their conviction, which would also affect their livelihood.

He said his clients were remorseful over their actions and had sincerely recorded their plea of guilt.

He asked the court to consider that his clients had contributed for the growth of the nation and to transfer of technology through their roles in the company.

In pressing for a deterrent sentence, prosecuting officer Shanti Geoffrey asked the court to consider public interest and the seriousness of the offence.

“Investors were misled with a statement issued to Bursa Malaysia on Sept 27, 2007, which was approved by both accused.

“In the false statement, out of RM73,416mil recorded for revenue, RM30,169mil worth of sales did not take place. The false sales comprised 41% of the overall revenue,” she said.

Geoffrey said investors were misled and suffered losses due to the false information, while both accused enjoyed revenue from their wrongful actions.

She said that Ooi was a substantial shareholder in MEMS Technology with over 38 million shares while Tan held 270,800 shares.

She said it was a planned crime where both accused had took about a year to generate and insert false sales in the accounts of its subsidiary company.

“Both are qualified accountants, they knew very well what they were doing,”she said, adding that elements of forgery and cheating were involved in committing the offence.

She said both accused had also failed to carry out their duty to shareholders and that their actions had affected the confidence of investors in the company.

Why these people like to be called "Dato" so much? Do they know that Dato means "公公" in Chinese, which is a title given to EUNUCHS of the royal courts in China?

Najib had given his ministers the KPI, what about him, who is going to grade him.

Take this poll:

How would you grade the PM's KPI (key performance index) during his 1 year in office.
