Many people write good books, I mean about good leaders, successful companies and great inventions. Also, some on wars and conflicts.
However, not a handful would write about misconduct, wrongdoing and scandals like Watergate or Irangate, let alone about blunders by world leaders.
In Malaysia, one of two authors had written political books about why Anwar and KJ cannot become PM and Umno Youth chief. It sold a few before it got cold.
But this planned 'book' on corporate wrongdoings would probably sell, especially when it involves an international company with operations in Malaysia. Those at the top are already feeling the heat and by the time it is in circulation, it will definitely draw some political attention.
PwC Malaysia is under international scrutiny for some of its 'mishandling'. With a court case still pending and some irregularities began to make it more ugly, its parent company in the US is said to have dispatched a senior official to conduct investigation.
Several publishers both in the United States and in Europe have expressed interest in publishing this book. It is expected to be ready this year.
This book will center around PwC's hidden documents, internal emails, false witness statements and affidavits.
As way back as 2003, PwC's General Counsel knew about this case, and Andrew Plunkett from the General Counsel's office told the enquirers to refer to the Malaysian office, while all the damaging emails were sitting in PwC global servers.
I have not heard anything from Chin Kwai Fatt and Johan Raslan. As the commanders of PwC, they should take this matter lightly.
