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?
