Will SC's interrogating goons dare harm "Mrs" Zarinah?

The exchanges at Securities Commission interrogation yesterday became more nasty despite report of denial in The Star yesterday. Apa pasal The Star baik sangat ni ... boycott and black them out la.

In his posting "Power Corrupts Zarinah", Rocky Bru described the harrasment by SC below:

The SC's investigation officers are running amok. Yesterday, at the end of a 3-hour session with BK Sidhu, the Star journalist, the attending IO named Arif demanded that Sidhu surrender her notes to him. Sidhu had been taking notes of the Q & A, perhaps out of habit or maybe to ensure against being misquoted. She refused to hand over her notes, of course. Arif then told the lawyer representing Sidhu and The Star, Mr Tharminder Singh, to sign a statement of the proceedings. Tharminder, I was told, refused to do so because he was there just as an observer. He had been told earlier to sit quietly in the Q & A room and not to offer any advice to Sidhu. He offered no advice to his client, whatsoever, even when Sidhu refused to give up her notes to Arif.

That was when the SC's officer issues a notice under this powerful Section 134 to Mr Singh, which would compel the lawyer to come back tomorrow (Thursday) to face the SC's "firing squad".

The Star wrote to SC yesterday advising it to withdraw the notice issued to Mr Singh, or face legal action.
That is how mean SC's young punk investigators are. It seems they are ready to abuse the SC Act according to their own interpretation without applying good judgement.

Don't they realised that they are hustling the messenger and not the culprit?

The rate they are flexing their power with such gangsterly behaviour may get Rocky's posting title misinterpreted. Some time back, Zarinah almost sue him. Never underestimate a woman's revenge.

Before SC flex their muscle again, let me substantiate his posting's title. In my earlier posting here, I had recalled past indiscretion by SC. I have taken the liberty to compile the profile of "Mrs" Zarinah, Dato Azizan Abdul Rahman and spot few questions on the "Mrs."

Did SC realised there are many conflict of interests? Did they spot any infringement and links in certain corporate transactions? If they had realised it, would they ever investigate Azizan? Would they dare throw the Section 134 SC Act 1993 at him?

Zarinah's Profile

Before we raised the questionable issues, let's see the profile of our SC Chairperson, Tan Sri Zarinah Anwar from MASB website.

Tan Sri Zarinah Anwar is Chairman of the Securities Commission (SC), Malaysia, a post she assumed on 1 April 2006. She had served as Deputy Chief Executive of the SC and a member of the Commission since 1 December 2001.

She is Vice-Chairman of the Emerging Markets Committee of the International Organisations of Securities Commissions (IOSCO). She was Chairman of the ASEAN Capital Markets Forum, a grouping of chairmen of ASEAN securities regulators, from 2006-2008.

Currently, she chairs the Malaysian Venture Capital Development Council and the Capital Market Development Fund, and is a member of the Labuan Offshore Financial Services Authority (LOFSA), Malaysian International Islamic Financial Centre (MIFC). She also serves on the Board of Directors of the Institut Integriti Malaysia (IIM) and the Asian Institute of Finance Malaysia (AIF).

Tan Sri Zarinah started her career in the Government Legal and Judicial Service where she served in the courts as well as the Attorney-General's Chambers. Subsequently, she spent 22 years with Shell and was Deputy Chairman of Shell Malaysia prior to joining the SC.

She graduated with an LLB (Hons) from University Malaya.

  • How is it that Zarinah be appointed as SC Chairperson in 2006 when her husband was a stockbroker and remain as Director in Apex outfit since 1985?

  • Is there not conflict of interest with Zarinah as SC Chairperson and husbands as Directors of Public Listed Companies?

  • In Annual Report of Companies where Azizan is a Director, why is there no mention of his relationship with SC Chairperson? The company only provide this qualification:
"Datuk Azizan does not have any family relationship with any other Director and/or major shareholder of the Company and has no conflict of interest with the Company. He has had no convictions for offences within the past ten years."
  • In January 2009, Azizan and a partner took Isyoda private at 71 sen. Earlier on November 7th, Isyoda was 93.5 sen and 4 days latter it felled to 54 sen. Two months later it was taken private. Is SC not investigating the reason behind this price drop? Maybe for possible manipulation?

  • Isyoda's NTA per share was about RM1.20. At 71 sen, the Company is actually taken for cheap. Was SC involved in pricing the GO at 73 sen? Was there any "strange" waiver in this deal that helped the EGM to approve the sale for cheap?

  • The delisting exercise was fast. By May 2009, Isyoda was taken to court. Was there something shitty that was covered up by delisting? SC interrogating goons?

  • Azizan became Deputy Chairman of TSH Resources, a Company he restructured personally at Apex. TSH Resources owns 67 pct of Ekowood and Tabung Haji owns 7%. He was Director of Ekowood till August 2005. Dato Kalimullah was apponted Chairman from 2004 up till May 2010. Could this be the link that help Kalimullah with waivers and strange arrangements for "ikan bilis" ECM Libra to takeover of Avenue Capital.
This is still a prequel.

Can there be a "Chinese Wall" in bed between husband and wife? So, any bloggers wanting to make a name for yourself can dig up on this allegedly corrupt couple.

ISYODA Bhd is Zarinah's waterloo. Her husband had to take it private, because the ISYODA shit was about to hit the fan. The shit that maybe, just maybe might be enough to force Zarinah to relinquish her hold as SC chairman.

According to Tony Pua, the DAP member of Parliment, documents he has showed that ISYODA had promised a PAYMENT of RM46 million to the Sunshine Fleet chairman personally, and not through the main contractor to secure RM482 million hospital project in Shah Alam. Sunshine Fleet was the main contractor.

If I am not MISTAKEN, this is a old school KICK BACK, RASUAH, BRIBERY.

Tong Pua has asked for the MACC to investigate. However, Tong Pua SURPRISINGLY did not mention that Datuk Azizan Abd Rahman, a shareholder and executive chairman of ISYODA is also the HUSBAND of Zarinah.

I suspect, Tong Pua did not mention this because Azizan is a business partner of Dato Kalimullah, who in recent months have been funding PKR.

So, Tony Pua, if you have any integrity, you SHOULD call for the RESIGNATION or SACKING of the Securities Comission's chairman, Tan Sri Zarinah.

MACC, please investigate Dato Azizan and ISYODA, since a member of parliment has demanded, you do so.

On the governance side, if indeed Azizan's IYSODA had undertaken to give that money to Sunshine Fleet chairman, how sure are we that he is also not acting as the market talk implies as the Mr Fix It for those who have problems with the SC, and are willing to part with six figure amounts, to see the problemss disappear.

Zarinah, you should RESIGN as you have become a POLITICAL LIABILITY to the PRIME MINISTER.

Singh is King.

ISYODA gives unconditional payment, according to the letter, was in consideration of Sunshine Fleet’s “efforts to procure the letter of award to be issued to the company. ”.

ISYODA said that the RM46 million would be paid by instalments. From this amount, Isyoda promised to pay 9.5% progressive interim payments to the Sunshine Fleet chairman totalling RM77 million.

“This is seen as a commission for this contract. But is it really a commission or a bribe? MACC you decide???
AND while all this was going on, ISYODA with Dato Azizan was a listed company on Bursa Malaysia, while Zarinah was the chairman of the Securities Commission.

Azizan is husband, while Zarinah is wife.

Sokong Sing is King, Zarinah patut UNDUR, agar imej Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak tidak terjejas dimata rakyat.

If indeed what you say is TRUE that

Azizan became Deputy Chairman of TSH Resources, a company he restructured personally at Apex. TSH Resources owns 67 pct of Ekowood and Tabung Haji owns 7%. He was Director of Ekowood till August 2005. Dato Kalimullah was apponted Chairman from 2004 up till May 2010. Could this be the link that help Kalimullah with waivers and strange arrangements for "ikan bilis" ECM Libra to takeover of Avenue Capital.

Then there is a CONFLICT of Interest IN ECM's takeover of Avenue.. .. .. because the SC chairman's husband Dato Azizan AND Kalimullah are BUSINESS PARTNERS.

I think Najib is powerless to act against Zarinah because she collaborates too much with his brother Nazir, CEO of CIMB.

What CIMB wants CIMB gets. SO easy to run that bank. Not enough money? No problem talk to Khazanah then call Zarinah to approve fund raising exercise.

CIMB reported to make lots of money from their treasury operations buying and selling shares. If EPF accounts for 50% of Bursa volume, Khazanah and CIMB must account for 35-40% because nobody else is in the market!

And the husband's far reaching arms as member of Tabung Haji Investment Committee (Some say he is Chairman), its laughable in the market.

And the new Capital Markets Act expands the number of sections from 200+ in the Securities Industries Act to 400+ now. She is judge, jury and executioner.

The civil servants hold the balls of the politicians. You try to be funny, they leak information to the Opposition.

Where are they taking the country....?

Bloody hell. This is high profile corruption of the first order. Where is MACC? Throw this couple into the jail. Celaka. said...

The number of persons who understand this issue and want to get involved may be only around 1000. Millions dont care. Will Najib care ? Will BN care ?

with the above comments from "Singh is King", when is MACC going to move in to interrogate Zarinah and her Mrs?

If MACC dares to, then this will be the real satu project Satu Malaysia.

Najib, over to you, ada bola?

I feel very sad that such stories have surfaced when it is unethically twisted and manipulated. The issue here is not SC or Zarinah or the husband but the issue here is the blatant abuse and manipulation of the market by one Dato Ishak Ismail if I am not mistaken so why deviate from the real crime? Does Ishak Ismail have a fan club filled with journalists? I don't see the relevance of any of your story nor the rude comments posted about SC and the 2 personalities. The SC chairman is doing her job because anyone who manipulates the market (making RM10m in 1 week I heard) at the expense of the public should be investigated. Why are you not focusing on this? Its very sad to see innocent people implicated and reputation destroyed like this. Cmon lah Mr Brick I am sure you are a responsible blogger who is afraid of fitnah and slander? Make your blog a blog of substance and like Rocky or most other good blogs, they post all relevant comments such as this so if you allow fitnah comments to be posted to further support your twisted story then pls post this comment too. Or else one can only conclude that you are biased, non ethical and most likely a "kept" blogger of some sort. I strongly suggest you look at your articles and ask yourself what do you gain from demonizing people such as the SC Chairman and her husband who has nothing to do with the main issue in hand (the investigation of Kenmark) so please dont abuse this freedom of the internet that many of us are thankful for. I hope you appreciate where I am coming from and I am sincere in wanting the other rubbish commenters read this comment of mine. Kita kena sedar diri kita sikit because there is very little we know about anything so to insinuate such things is fitnah and it is a sin. People's life and career is in God's hands so please don't think that it is in your hands. I apologize if I am rude in this comment post but reading your twisted story only tells me that you have a misplaced vengeance that is of no basis and substance. Think about everything that I have written here and please post it. Be a gentleman... a fair one. TQ
