Confirmed! The number of 1Malaysia netbook given to 6 companies belong to-and related to Datuk Rais Yatim's special officer is 135,842 units, as stated in my earlier posting. The figure is compatible with that of the MCMC.
Furthermore, this guy is Rais' favourite or closest (his pet?), according to ministry and MCMC sources. NA has been making frequent visits to the MCMC in Cyberjaya over the past few months after the government announced the distribution of the netbook throughout the country.
Out of 25 companies shortlisted as distributors for 349,000 netbooks (my earlier posting put it at 349,732), his and friends' companies got almost half of it.
Breakdowns for the six companies are:
1. Juang Jaya Sdn Bhd 23,850 units
2. CQ Communications 26,277
3. Tirai Jitu (M) Sdn Bhd 10,220
4. Creative Century Management 27,142
5. Esmartpay Solutions SB 23,906
6. Dynasty IT Service Sdn Bhd 24,447
There is no need for me to reveal the full list as our concern is more towards the six.
Now, I was told that Rais has denied any involvement in it, and that he never issued any letter of recommendation, directive or desk memo instruction to NA to be made as 'a passport' to influence MCMC's decision making.
A friend at the Info Ministry also called me today that this NA wanted to see me.
Anyway, I will be at the MACC next week...
