theVibes.com confirmed the suspicion this blog had in August on the involvement by the family of Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin in the RM1.2 billion National Integrated Immigration System (NIIS) tender. [Read here and here].
As early as June 2020, Focus Malaysia here have been enquiring on who is behind S5 System, but only managed to trace to a probable proxy, Syed Muhammad Hafiz.
Hafiz is the son of former UMNO MP (now with PPBM), and younger brother to Raja Perlis, Syed Razlan Syed Putra Jamalullail.
He is linked to an off-shore and overseas company, NSA Technology (L) Inc., which in turn is linked to an entrepreneur Johann Young. The connection to Muhyiddin is indirect and many more steps to be legally relevant.
The latest scoop by Emmanuel Samarathisa here revealed Muhyiddin's son-in-law, Datok Muhamamd Adlan Berhan as shareholder of S5.

It is now almost crystal clear that like Tun Dr Mahathir, Prime Minister Muhyiddin mix family business with his political position.
More interesting, The Vibes revealed:
Company filings show that Datuk Muhamad Adlan Berhan, married to Muhyiddin’s daughter, Nabilah, is a shareholder of Agathistwo Jia Sdn Bhd. He was a director of the company, too, but resigned on September 21, 2018, yet remains among its owners.
The other Agathistwo Jia directors are businessmen Lim Beng Guan and Choong Khoong Liang. Lim, also the founder of boutique financial house ZJ Advisory Sdn Bhd, is the sole director and shareholder of Avocat Sdn Bhd, which is among the shareholders of S5 with a 3.62% stake. Other S5 owners are MyEG Services Bhd’s subsidiary MyEG Capital Sdn Bhd (10%), S7 Holdings Sdn Bhd (76.38%) and Merrington Assets Ltd (10%).
In this blog's August 8th posting, Are PM's son, PPBM behind frontrunners for RM1.5 billion IIS tender?, MyEG is believed to be a frontrunner and naturally has technical tie-up with S5.
Another potential front-runner mentioned is Datasonic, which could be potential platform for much said interest of PM's son and/or son-in-law in the area of biometric and payment system.
Not only mentioned by The Vibes, one short-listed bidder, whose no more in the running, claimed it would likely go to Iris and its share price has boomed!
This was anticipated by our August 17 blog post, Young politician intermediary in Iris's NIIS tender.
Could it be Dato Rozabil aka Ben, who is believe to collaborate to fix Dato Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi with a Al Capone-like diary as so-called evidence?
