Just DO IT, not DUIT!

A good chunk of the legal work in MBPJ has been diverted to the firms of Sivarasa, Surendran and Derrick through the influence of Lateefa Koya and Derrick. After all, this is a PKR-controlled council. Is this not corruption, or at least a conflict of interest?

Come back and shed light on bribery claims, Selangor urges Raja Petra 

The Selangor government wants me to come forward and reveal the conflicts of interest, abuses of power and transgressions in the state administration. I will do just that. In the meantime, while I gather some of the evidence to enable the state to get to the bottom of things, maybe they can start investigating these first two cases.

These cases do not need any evidence from me. The state has all the records and most likely they can quote the figures from the top of their heads. In one of the cases, if the state can cooperate with the MACC to ensure that the identity of the whistleblower is protected, I will try to convince that person to come forward to testify.

This whistleblower is a Chinese and a developer who depends on state approvals for his company’s projects. So, invariably, he is very concerned about his business being disrupted or sabotaged if his identity is revealed. Chinese business people somehow appear paranoid about being victimised by what they perceive as a ‘Malay’ administration.

The first case involves Azmin Ali’s brother-in-law, Johan Taharin. Johan approached one developer who has been having problems getting certain approvals since Pakatan Rakyat first came to power almost four years ago.

Now, I have known this developer personally for some number of years. In the past, he had always voted MCA. For the first time in 2008 he supported Pakatan Rakyat. He even organised talks in his house for me to speak to his neighbours, friends and family so that I can campaign and swing them over to Pakatan Rakyat. Some of this person’s friends even flew back from Australia, Canada and the US at his behest just to vote for Pakatan Rakyat.

This developer complained to me that Johan approached his firm and said that he (Johan) is aware that they (the developer) is facing problems getting approval from the state. Johan offered to help them overcome their problems, for a fee.

The developer asked Johan how can they be assured that they would get approval once they paid the money? Can they instead pay after the approval has been obtained rather than pay upfront? After all, they are talking about a few million here, not a small amount of money.

Johan told the developer that he is representing Azmin Ali and if required he can bring them to meet Azmin so that Azmin can personally give them his assurance. They replied they will think about it.

The developer then phoned me, cursing and swearing. “We voted Pakatan Rakyat because of you,” the developer said. “Before that we were MCA supporters. But because of you for the first time we all supported Pakatan Rakyat.”

“What’s the difference between Pakatan Rakyat and Barisan Nasional if they also ask for bribes?” the developer screamed.

The developer then asked me what he should do. “Should I pay the money?” he asked. “Can I get a guarantee that I will get my approval after I pay?”

I told the developer that we kicked out Barisan Nasional and replaced it with Pakatan Rakyat because we wanted to end corruption. If we now pay under-the-table money to Pakatan Rakyat, then why the hell did we bother to kick out Barisan Nasional? We might as well have just retained Barisan Nasional.

The developer did not pay the money and, of course, his project is now in tatters. But he swore he was going to campaign against Pakatan Rakyat in the coming general election.

Okay, that is the first case. If the MACC wants to talk to the developer let me know. Anyway, that person also reads 
Malaysia Today so he is probably aware of this already (and probably pissing in his pants by now).

Now, let us go to the next case, which, if not corruption, is certainly a conflict of interest.

This next case is regarding some scams involving the amount of legal work dished out by the legal department of MBPJ. This work is being given exclusively to a group of lawyers who are all PKR leaders.

This large amount of legal work to these chosen few has caused immense unhappiness amongst the other Pakatan Rakyat council members in MBPJ, who have chosen to remain silent for the sake of ‘party unity’. They feel that if they speak out that may jeopardise Pakatan Rakyat’s chances of retaining Selangor in the next general election.

The principle characters are lawyers Derrick Fernandez and Lateefa Koya, who are also both MBPJ councillors and PKR leaders, the Member of Parliament for Subang, R. Sivarasa, and the newly-minted Vice President of PKR, N. Surendran. Lateefa is also employed by Daim and Gamany, Sivara’s legal firm.

A good chunk of the legal work in MBPJ has been diverted to the firms of Sivarasa, Surendran and Derrick through the influence of Lateefa Koya and Derrick. After all, this is a PKR-controlled council. Is this not corruption, or at least a conflict of interest?

Anwar Ibrahim is fully aware of this but does nothing about it. And Anwar does not need me to provide any figures or documents because the accounts can be procured from the MBPJ.

MBPJ has to be transparent and reveal the exact amount of work given to these three firms and the total fees paid over the few years that Pakatan Rakyat has ruled Selangor.

Daim and Gamany has moved from their humble office in the ‘slum’ Masjid India area to a new swank office near MBPJ. Surendran, on the other hand, is no longer the poor lawyer he used to be. He used to travel around in a beaten-up Proton Saga begging for work. Now, he is chauffer-driven in an expensive continental car. Talk about rags to riches in the blink of an eye.

Surendran’s firm is called Edwin Lim Suren & Soh and Derrick’s is Derrick Fernandez and Co. Sivarasa is also on the board of Kumpulan Perangsang Selangor and is enjoying perks and director’s fees estimated in the tens of thousands a month, other than the spoils from his legal work.

Okay, as I said, let us start with these two cases while I gather the evidence for the other cases, which I will reveal in due course.

Why can’t the PKR people be more like Nik Aziz, the Kelantan MB? Do you know that Nik Aziz still lives in his old wooden house that does not even have a proper road leading to it? And when he does his prayers in the office, he switches off the lights because his prayers are his personal matter while the electricity is paid by the state government.

That is how I expect our elected leaders to conduct themselves.

And, yes, I still support Pakatan Rakyat and I urge you to do the same. But do we want to wait until Pakatan Rakyat becomes just like Barisan Nasional before we scream? We need them to clean up their act now. I suspect that the next general election will be held in March 2013. That means we have more than a year to set things right.

So, just do it! I said DO IT, not DUIT!

  1. Ini macam cerita orang dengki. He should whack that Sharizat not all these hearsay!
    No wonder people are saying this guy is desperado... hehehe
    Orang guna duit zakat tu lagi lendir dan hanyir!!! and pointed out by the Audit Negara but here a guy is rumor mongering buat taik khidung kat London! WTF

  2. Malaysian royalty cannot be trusted. once a thief always a thief, they were the descendant of the the pirates marauding the coastal civilization of the malay peninsular.

  3. And this pirates do not allow people to comment free on his blog.

  4. Ahhhhhhhhhh Just ignore him.
    He is already an outcast.
    He will from now on try to extract his pound of flesh.
    His close allies have already cast him away.
    I will not be influenced by his talk .
    F.O to him

  5. Just ignore him lah, don't even give him space. He took us for fools, even played out his closest friends and supporters who had supported him through thick and thin since his Kamunting days.

    Now we see the true him. It's sickening, the guy has lost all respect, intergrity and credibility. No one is going to trust him anymore!

  6. "These cases do not need any evidence from me. The state has all the records and most likely they can quote the figures from the top of their heads" - RPK

    The reason why Malaysia Today blog had credibility and lots of followers previously was because RPK revealed documented evidences when he exposed any wrongdoings. But with this kind of statement of "do not need any evidence" RPK has become no better than low class or haprak bloggers who write based on hearsays.

    The public perception in today's environment in Malaysia is very simple, if there is actually a corruption case involving any opposition states or individuals, SPRM and PDRM will jump at it at 10 times their normal speed. And why did the so called Chinese businessman not report the case to SPRM in the first place? And what happened to RPK's bashing of "in Malaysia the onus on the accused to prove his innocence instead of the opposite"?

    And Sein, your "siapa makan cili dia rasa pedas lah" statement doesn't help improve RPK's article either in the absent of hard evidences. Common Bro, I'm sure you can do better than that. Let's use today's borderless world to expose evidences, not hearsays.

  7. Like many, I had a high regard for RPK. However, I felt that what he has done, putting aside our feelings on the truth or veracity, is equivalent to an action of kicking a man when he is down. I believe that people are shocked and disappointed that this comes from a man of the stature of RPK who is held in high esteem by many Malaysians.

  8. Who said that, no one to trust him, I'm still trusting him.

  9. you still support Pakatan RPK??? Sure or not??? Maybe you can explain khaled Ibrahim's 'financial' link with you....very naughty of khaled to spill the bean tru you about the so called cronysm legal work in MBPJ...alas maybe you shoul write about the three 'damsel' around Khaled that is really making the calls....

  10. Wait a minute, why should we ignore RPK? If what he say is true, then such acts are wrong. It is corruption! It is conflict of interests!

    Unless, you guys are saying that it is not ok for BN to be corrupted BUT it is OK for PR to be corrupted.

    We want change BUT are we going to replace one set of crooks with a set of newer crooks???

  11. I for one always of the believe that most of this PKR goon can never leave behind their corrupt style of living....let me remind all again that PKR is made up of disgrunteld corrupt politician from BN who just cannot part with the corrupt culture that they have aquirred while being with BN the last time around.........pitty RPK for getting wack just because of his straight talking no holed barred kind of style......but like he always said in most of his article......most of us just cannot accept dissent.


  13. For those who still believe in RPK, good luck to you. The guy has flipped and there's no turning back for him. People just don't change like this, betraying friends and those who treated him like a hero. He has no credibility left and that's that. So don't be fooled by him anymore or you'll feel like an idiot later when things become clearer.

  16. i haven't seen a monkey refuse a banana!!

  17. Looks like cybumno has landed on your blog, HH.

    In true RPK form, these accused are guilty unti proven innocent. I have to laud DAP's policy of declaring one's assets for transparency. Which is why there is a timely shakedown in their household and their disciplinary committee kept busy.
    Nothing wrong for PKR chaps tp do the same is there? After all AA and these PKR folks mentioned have nothing to hide right?

    Prove RPK wrong then.
    After all transparency will only bring you more votes.

    But be warned, if you don't, then the label of being just another umno2.0 will cost you dearly.

  18. Malaysiakini reports

    "RPK ready to return if freedom guaranteed"!

    Hahaha! Well he has earned half his journey, the other half depends on what else he can dish out to shock, upset and disgust Umno/BN's foes - opposition Pakatan and its Allies

  19. This fart of a royalty is now a cheap skate. Before his exposures rock. Now his exposures no different from the paid UMNO cybertroopers. Dontplaypuk said it all. Those who haven't read this blogger's comments, please do so. As for HH, he is still putting his wet forefinger to the wind, figuring where the wind blows. That pot of gold is still elusive for him when RPK has got his, sigh.

  20. Bro,

    Senikata baru lagu UMNO.

  21. Please read Sivarasa blog where these allegations are dealt with. I was shocked to read that some of those mentioned are not even PKR members. Something's really wrong with raja Petra.

  22. Hussein, perhaps Jelas may throw some light to it.....
    RPK is finito man! He has no value now!
    Still his die hard supporters are a stubborn lot!
    Maybe he can start a cult following membership on his own!

  23. Silvarasa is the half breed's partner.

    Believing him is like believing in Santa Claus.

    Anyway MY lawyers are the lowets quality crap out there, no one respects them that's they are always trying to get into politics.

    " women's role in Islam forum ", this fucking useless conference, that useless conference. now getting embroiled in corruption cases.

    Anything to draw attention to their useless dogshit profession.

    Looks like the pariahs have entered this blog.

    " chindians " HAH ! ugly mothers.

    At last the fat one RPK has seen the light, I agree with him on this one.


  24. RPK from hero to zero. Now he is exposed and only good at talking cock!
