Believe it or not!
This 'Anuar' who got filthy rich by winning a few hundred hours of television airtime from a TV station was contemplating to buy a helicopter worth at least RM5 million!
After successfully making his resorts/chalets dream in Linggi a reality, his buddy whom I met earlier today said he is also planning for a budget hotel somewhere in Sepang (competing or complementing the Gold Coast, perhaps).
Now, that is the real power of airtime. This 'broadcasting gold' which nobody gave much attention before (as so many people were after the car approved permits or APs) offers the recipients quick and big bucks.
What's the helicopter for? To fly the senior officer who awarded him with that gold mine?
This Anuar got his office in Jalan Genting Klang. His company, 'M V' Sdn Bhd was once a small contractor with Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL). However, for his good rapport with the senior official and the 'gifts' he invested in, he was awarded with few hundred hours of airtime over the last three years (that is since the officer took office).
I was told that the MACC visited the senior officer on two occasions recently, spending a few hours with him and digging into some files. Of course it is his prerogative rights to give it to whoever he likes but the bottom line is, he is not a fair person and denying those who really need the airtime from getting it.
From more than 600 applicants for the airtime, only selected few were given, including Anuar who is not directly involved in local movie/film production.
You want his address, phone number and other details, MACC? Call me!
