Govt should call up Kalimullah

Let's hope the government will get to the bottom of this. The issue has been long-standing and becomes a 'time-bomb' since Dato Sri Najib took over as PM in April this year.

Its all about Kalimullah bin Masheerul Hassan, former media boss whom many believe got 'filthy rich' from various government contracts. The fact that one of his companies holds Malaysian confidentiality has prompted the public to start urging the government for some diggings.

Having the EPF, IRB and other public organisations to pump in all details about 'who and how much money', 'who goes bankrupt', 'who pays how much taxes' and so on has also moved some bloggers and the media to give it a priority.

So, if brother Kali is in London or elsewhere, do call him home. And if he's in the country, Najib has the prerogative rights to instruct for his attendance before him or an appointed committee to answer all questions. Nope, it's not interrogation but 'to clear the air', shall we say that?

The boiling question will, of course, be the manner in which his Virtual Print International Sdn Bhd (VPI Intl) was awarded the Inland Revenue Board contract worth RM1 billion (in 2 separate payments of RM500 million and RM400 million respectively). Besides, we dont know how much informations was feeded by the EPF and other 'money-info banks' about each and every Malaysian to the company.

VPI International Sdn Bhd was registered with the Companies Commission of Malaysia on January 4, 2002, its business address being Lot 6 Jalan Astaka Ub/84, Taman Perindustrian Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam, Selangor. The nature of business is the provision of integrated outsourcing solution in data and document processing.

With a paid-up of RM5,000,000, VPI has two appointed directors, namely Elliza Abdul Malek and Shaik Aqmal Shaik Allaudin and two appointed secretaries, Chong Chen Tong and Lim Hoon Hwa. Shareholders are Efficient E-Solutions Bhd, Elliza Abdul Malek, Shaik Aqmal Shaik Allaudin and Maju Raya Sdn Bhd.

Its revenue as at January 2010 stood at RM126.1 million and among its major clients are Ambank (M) Bhd, OCBC Bank (M) Bhd, EON Bank Bhd, Malaysia Debt Ventures Bhd, Alliance Bank Bhd and AmIslamic Bank Bhd.

VPI is also linked with Regalia Records Management Sdn Bhd in providing document and archiving for IRB and some governments agencies. With a paid-up capital of RM10,000,000, Regalia also has Elliza and Shaik Aqmal as its appointed directors. Aqmal, according to sources ia Kali's nephew.

VPI and Regalia are shareholders for the group's holding company Efficient E-Solutions Berhad which was registered on 27 October 2003 with a total authorised share capital of 200,000,000.00. And again, Shaik Aqmal is one of the seven appointed directors which includes, among others Abdul Latif Abdullah, Syed Hussain Syed Junid and Cheah Chee Kong.

Among its shareholders are ECML Nominees (Tempatan) Sdn Bhd, Perspektif Padu Sdn Bhd, HSBC Nominees (Tempatan) Sdn Bhd, Mayban Nominees (Tempatan) Sdn Bhd and Asian New Century Capital Sdn Bhd. Also on the list are Amanah Raya Nominees (Tempatan) Sdn Bhd, BHLB Trustee Bhd and Alliancegroup Nominees (Tempatan) Sdn Bhd.

It doesnt matter how rich Kali is. Had he worked it out by his effort and strength, he well deserves it. However, the public needs to know who is/are behind all this contracts. All that we know is, Kali got it during the premiership of Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. Furthermore, Kali must have his 'team' for such a massive jobs. Who are they? Anybody from the Inner Circle involved? And what kind of kickbacks were there, if any...

Not just that. His fast emergence as owner, co-owner and shareholders of some big companies also raised the issue of hegemony and cronyism here. On record, the companies are:

ECM LIBRA BHD
LIBRA CAPITAL MANAGEMENT SDN BHD

OUB-TA ASSET MANAGEMENT SDN BHD

ECM LIBRA FOUNDATION

ECM LIBRA PARTNERS SDN BHD

UNIVERSAL CONTROL SYSTEMS (M) SDN BHD

AMPERSAND CONSULTANTS SDN BHD

VINCENZO RISTORANTE SDN BHD

ECM LIBRA FINANCIAL GROUP BHD

ECM LIBRA HOLDINGS SDN BHD

AIRASIA X SDN BHD

EKOWOOD INTERNATIONAL BHD

PALMA INDIGO SDN BHD

ECM LIBRA INVESTMENT BANK BHD

AERO VENTURES SDN BHD

TUNE MONEY SDN BHD

TUNE HOTELS REAL ESTATE SDN BHD

TUNE HOTELS SDN BHD

TULUS TENAGA SDN BHD

By simple logic, Kali is not alone. The assets are too big for one to manage with a small group of directors and advisors. Could it be people in the government's Inner Circle?

efficient e solution listed on Bursa. Chairman is DATO’ Abdul Latif Abdullah, a relative of pak lah. Abdul Latif is also formerly of real mild, and made a fortune in getting real mild to buy ambulance. Currently drives a black Ferrari, and has got a real hot girl friend... bercium cium dalam lif. Kali owns about 12 per cent of efficient e solutions.

yes. the prime minister should reprimand kalimullah to give statement and clarify everything the public wants to know.

this is not to question kali's assets whatsoever but to provide leads to his connection with the previous government.

like u say, if he is clean, then he is clean. all that we need to know is who gave him such a big project, especially with regards to individual and personal files.

bujai,

kali is rich and we are getting poorer.

why? cronyism which was invented by the inner circle.

dr ekonomi said...

sdr,

saya setuju agar kalimullah memberi penjelasan kepada kerajaan dan negara mengenai siapakah yang bertanggungjawab membantu dan memberi projek sebegini besar dan amat 'confidential' kepada syarikat2 yang dimilikinya. kita bukan mempersoalkan kekayaan beliau kerana itu memang sudah rezekinya. apa yang kita ingin tahu ialah bagaimana kontrak lembaga hasil dalam negeri dan yang lain-lain boleh diserahkan kepada kali dan rakan2nya.

siapa rakan2nya juga kita perlu tahu. jika wujud kepincangan dalam proses pemberian kontrak ini suatu waktu dahulu, sudah sampai masanya ia diperbetulkan. kita tidak mahu rakyat menuduh kerajaan datuk seri najib dengan pelbagai tuduhan tidak berasas jika bukan kerajaan beliau yang terbabit dalam pemberian kontrak2 besar ini.

saya yakin kali akan bekerjasama. yang saya khuatir ialah jika kemungkinan kali akan terpaksa menyembunyikan beberapa fakta penting bagi melindungi seseorang atau beberapa orang yang terbabit dengannya.

malaysia tidak memerlukan hanya seorang saja rakyatnya memonopoli kontrak besar kerajaan. kita memiliki ratusan ribu firma tempatan yang turut berkemampuan menguruskan kontrak yang sama dan bukannya harus diberikan kepada seorang dua.

kali perlu bekerjasama. kita bukan hendak mengenakan tuduhan atau menghukumnya tetapi biarlahrakyat tahu kedudukan sebenarnya dari mana beliau memperolehi kontrak sedemikian dengan begitu mudah daripada kerajaan.

kita juga perlu adil kepada beliau

chapang said...

hentam beb, hentam je....

kesian gak dengan kali, tetiba jadi sasaran satu malaya.

aku pun tak pasti apa salah dia.

dia tak hulur kat kau ke?

mekong said...

why blame kali now? why only now so many people want him to declare who and who gave him the projects? najib was once deputy to paklah and i suppose he knew it by then.

and you bloggers simply want to make a big issue out of it, and most of you were or are his friends.

i dont understand it!
