KHALID CHICKEN OUT! THE 4 KNIGHT RIDERS CAME WITH SUPPORTERS CARRYING BATONS???

Selangor Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim was challenged to debate with Chua Tee Yong tonight.

However, as expected, Khalid did not dare to accept the challenge.  He claimed KPMG advisory had cleared his name but the People was disappointed that he did not come to the debate venue (International Youth Centre in Kuala Lumpur) with the “review” report and the white paper.

On the other hand, he sent his four elected spoke persons to the place, the People do not know what role are they playing in Talam’s RM676 million bail out.  Particularly, why DAP Tony Pua was selected as spokeperson instead of Selangor Exco Teresa Kok?  Is he going to replace Teresa Kok as the State Exco?

The People still remember when it was pointed out on 7 July that state entities namely Unisel, SAP Holdings (a subsidiary of Kumpulan Hartanah Selangor) and Permodalan Negeri Selangor Bhdhad yet to receive any repayment despite the successful debt recovery exercise, Tony Pua said this was for the Selangor government to answer.

“It is between the state government and their entities. I have no access to MBI or the state agencies. The money is with the state government. How the state want to allocate it to its subsidiaries is its problem,” Tony said.

Perhaps, Khalid should explain to the People what basis for him to select Tony Pua instead of Teresa Kok as Selangor government’s spoke person before he explain to the People the basis he used for the valuation of “water” lands and “high hill slope” lands!

The 4 knight riders of Khalid walked out after it became clear that they would not be allowed on stage, amidst boos from a 500-strong pro-MCA crowd.

A minor scuffle broke out between MCA and Pakatan Rakyat supporters, numbering at about 200, prompting the police to intervene.

At least four persons were seen being taken away by police in handcuffs for reasons that are still unclear, but is believed to be for the possession of retractable batons.

NONEPreviously, Khalid had appointed four representatives – DAP’s Tony Pua (left, in picture), PAS’ Dzulkefly Ahmad (centre, in picture), PKR’s William Leong (right, in picture) and his political secretary Faekah Husin – to answer all matters related to debt restructuring exercise.

They were at the International Youth Centre in Kuala Lumpur well before 8pm, which was the advertised time for the debate to start.

However, by about 8.20pm, the emcee announced that the event would start, but not before saying a few words to rile up the audience.

“It is now 8.22pm and according to the schedule, the debate is to start at 8.30pm. So with ladies and gentlemen’s permission, I invite you to wait for Khalid’s arrival since our other debater (Labis MP Chua Tee Yong) is already waiting here.

NONE“Let us see whether Khalid dares to accept the organiser’s challenge. There would also be a question and answer session… and for the Yang Berhormat representing Pakatan, you are invited to remain here and perhaps you may have questions for Chua…,” he said.

At this juncture, Khalid’s representatives left the hall and were showered with jeers from the pro-MCA crowd.

After a 45-minute monologue, Chua took three questions from the floor, of which one asked him to speculate the reason for Khalid’s absence.
“He promised so many things, but they are not fulfilled. He promised a White Paper, to answer questions on the deal in the state legislative assembly, to sue me and to appoint five auditors to probe the deal.
“Since he could not keep his promises, the best thing to do is to siam (dodge, in the Hokkien dialect),” he said.

‘Where is the MB?’

NONESpeaking to reporters later, Chua said since Khalid was too busy to debate in his own parliamentary constituency of Bandar Tun Razak where the debate was held, he would arrange a debate in Khalid’s state constituency of Ijok.
When asked about Pua’s comments that he is not qualified to debate with Khalid, Chua said, “it is not up to him alone to determine whether I am qualified.
“The problem now is that the person in charge of the transaction and is the head of Menteri Besar Incorporated is not Tony Pua, (it is) the menteri besar. Therefore, why is he not here to debate?”
Chua added that some affairs, just as voting in elections, could not be delegated to representatives.

  1. Khalid accused Rozali not replying to water crisis but he himself forgot about himself also not replying to Selangor Talam bail out. Is he trying to hide something?

  2. MB HAVE TO FIRST EXPLAIN WHY THERE IS ONLY ONE REPORT ON THE TALAM DEAL WHEN HE INITIALLY SAID HE ” HAS ENGANGED” 5 FIRMS.

    DID THE OTHER 4 ACTUALLY DID ANY AUDIT IS ALSO QUESTIONABLE?

    JUST EXPLAIN, MR. MB!

      • ACTUALLY, MR. MB JUST NEED TO SHOW US ALL MALAYSIAN THE
        WHITE PAPER.

        ALL SUSPICIONS CAN BE CLARIFIED….IT’S THAT SIMPLE!
        JUST PUT UP THE WHITE PAPER.

      • i rememeber my audit team caught a corruption case when doing a MNC audit…the company gave kick backs to another company in order to get a multi-million contract…

        The explanation given is that it was a commercially sound decision even though the company has breached the law of anti corruption. Commercially sound bcos the company can make profits from the contract, more than enough to cover the kick backs given.

        At the end, we close the file..

      • justin,

        even if this is an audit..what do you expect the auditors to conclude if the client i.e. state government represent that they can make huge profits from the land even if it is overpriced? Whether the auditors are expected to probe there is element of fraud or kick backs depends squarely on the scope of works..auditors wont work for free..

      • EX DAP,
        Dont pick bone from egg! audit report is more or less same as the white paper!! The conclusion is the same i.e. ethical and commercially sound!!

      • Auditor Ma is correct. Some clients use “commercially sound” decision to justify their wrongdoings. If they are good luck, they can escape from punishment for corruption and money laundering.

      • sebenarnya KPMG ingin meyampaikan kesimpulan bahawa MB tidak terlibat dalam rasuah ( dalam english Ethical) dan Glcs akan dapat mengaut juta-jutaan keuntungan daripada pembangunan tanah-tanah tersebut walaupun nilai tinggi daripada harga pasaran dan laporan jabatan penilaian kerajaan (dalam english commercially sound)…kesimpualn ini berdasarkan “sumpah” MB dan ahli-ahli terlibat dan juga GDV projek yang dijangkakan berbillion-billion.

      • How can KPMG advisory make a conclusion that there is no corruption if they just review the documents provided by Selangor government.

  3. Auditor ma,

    i see issue here same as the Talam deal! as long as State govt suffers no loss like the MNC. This is also confirmed by KPMG in the FAQs of Selangor Govt!!

    • It is true that a review is not audit. When we perform a review, we only rely on the documents given by the client. We will not perform any tests out of the job scope. In a review, no confirmation of the valuation with independent valuer and no checking if any costs incurred.

      • kalau kerajaan benar tak rugi pun di masa hadapan insha Allah..Unisel dah rugi! KPMG sahkan bahwa semua RM392 juta hutang telah dikutip, manakala Unisel tak dapat 1 sen pun dari jumlah hutang Talam kepada kami RM248juta. Apa sebab bagi diskaun RM36 juta kepada Talam sedangkan Unisel tak kutip apa-apa pun setakat ini!

  4. This Unisel debt and discout has been brought up by Chua on 7 July but Tony Pua pushed the question to Selangor government and until todate no one from Selangor government can provide an anwer.

  5. I follow MB’s news closely, he always made promises but never fulfill it. Talam, he promised 5 auditors but didn’t fulfill. Syabas, he promised to offer but didn’t fulfill.
