Edisi Khas twitter have been making quite a buzz lately with their whistleblowing activities. It was initially a website, but blocked by MCMC. Their twitter account have been more effective and unhindered.
Without a proper identity and trumpet blower similar to Lalitha than whistleblowing or whispering, they hardly qualify legally for witness protection. Nevertheless, they received certain degree of respect.
When told Edisi Khas have been off target lately and exposed their lack of technical competency, one law enforcement high official confided he dare not comment. "We can never know what they know".
Edisi Khas have the advantage of information beyond the access of the public in their revelation on the inner sanctum of police force, MACC or certain law enforcement outfit. How much is true and how much is fiction, the public is not in the capacity to verify.
In their recent episode against Tan Sri Azam Baki, few claims made with regard to Securities Commission and the related Securities Act indicate they were guessing and prejudical in their assessment of a highly technical and legal matter.
Civil servants, the culprit?
It turns out the top MARA official seconded as management are significantly of lower government grade in the lower 40s and comparably lower then those with grade 52 in MARA Corp organisation.
It is not ascertained whether they was any common benefit for their bosses sitting on the Board of Directors.
If the widely held belief in the past that Dato Badlisyah Ghani and his team were manouvred for removal by envious and self serving politicians and corporate personalities, it is becoming more obvious that it looks to be civil servants ganging up to protect their turf.
The documents revealed by Edisi Khas twitter indicate the possibility that there have been outright wrongdoings by MARA officials, including high officials.
Captain M blog that was critical of Badlisyah in the past have been training their guns on 5 top civil servants in MARA Corp here.
MACC have responded to the series of revelation by Edisi Khas twitter over the weekend to announced on Saturday an investigation will be carried out on Monday:
The 5 MARA Corp high officials responded to each make a police report at their favourite or convenient nearby balai at Dang Wangi IPD on Sunday. FMT reported below:
5 Mara officials lodge police reports denying corruption charges
FMT Reporters -February 6, 2022 7:00 PM
Police confirm that they have received separate reports from the five Mara officials.
PETALING JAYA: Five Mara officials named in a letter alleging issues of integrity and abuse of power relating to Mara Corporation (Mara Corp) have denied being involved in corruption.
The five lodged separate police reports at the Dang Wangi police station in Kuala Lumpur today.
They claimed the complaints against them were a distraction from a board member’s wrongdoings.
They denied involvement in abuse of power as stated in a letter shared online by Twitter account Edisi Khas. The letter was allegedly sent by executive director Suhaili Abdul Rahman to Mara chairman Azizah Mohd Dun.
The five also alleged that Suhaili had defamed them in the purported letter.
One of them, in his report, also claimed that Suhaili was trying to distract Azizah from abuse of power committed.
Dang Wangi district police chief Noor Dellhan Yahaya confirmed receiving the reports and said investigations were underway, according to Berita Harian.
On Friday, Azizah had denied claims of mismanagement and said investigations had been initiated into Mara Corp to review documents and ensure the company was managed properly.
She said all Mara’s subsidiaries were regulated under the Companies Act 2016 and that it would never protect guilty parties if any wrongdoing had been committed.
The 17-page letter was said to have been written at Azizah’s request for an integrity inquiry to be conducted into officers who had been “loaned” to Mara Corp.
It highlighted alleged wrongdoings by the five Mara officials in a “cross-fertilisation programme” and listed “backdated” payments allegedly received.
According to the letter, Suhaili said the backdated payments were made without his knowledge or that of the board of directors.
In a statement yesterday, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said it had received a complaint on the matter and would call up several people from Mara Corp to give their statements tomorrow.
The investigation would be conducted under Section 23(1) of the MACC Act, which deals with using one’s position to seek gratification, whether for themselves, a relative or an associate.
