    ///KUALA LUMPUR Dec 30 — The 45-year-old Datuk suspected of trying to bribe CCID officers investigating the National Feedlot Corporation NFCorp has been charged with cheating at the Sessions Court here today Datuk Shamsubahrin Ismail allegedly cheated NFCorp chairman Datuk Dr Mohamad Salleh Ismail out of RM1 76 million in consultation fees by offering the latter fraudulent advisory services Shamsubahrin was charged with two counts of cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property under section 420 of the Penal Code.///–MalaysianInsider

    The citizens of Malaysia are more concerned about the 250 million ringgit of public funds being misused, We wonder why the government is more concerned about how the Chairman of NFC was being cheated a paltry sum compared to the amount of 250 Million Rinngit of public funds being cheated out of the government.

    It is obvious that the government has no intention to deal with the real issue, and it is possible that the present ‘cheating case’ would allow NFC breathing space just like the PKFZ case where the Minister was charged for cheating the PM. They will be acquitted after the show!

    ///The first charge read that Shamsubahrin, CEO of Shamsubahrin Ismail Resources Sdn Bhd, had cheated Mohamad Salleh by promising the NFC chairman his consultation and negotiation services, with the knowledge that the offer was false and intended to cheat him by inducing him to part with a service fee.
    This incident allegedly occurred at 6pm on Nov 20 at a restaurant in Bukit Tunku here.
    The second charge was that Shamsubahrin had, between Nov 25 till Dec 6, received cheques amounting to RM1.755 million from Mohamad Salleh at Solaris in Mont Kiara.
    For the offence of cheating, Shamsubahrin could face between one to 10 years jail, with whipping and can also be fined.
    It was reported last week that a “Datuk fixit” was arrested by the police and handed over to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for allegedly attempting to bribe several senior investigators to “settle” the case over the NFC.///–http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/2011/12/30/datuk-fixit-charge-with-cheating/

    The CEO of NFC certainly had the liberty to either or not enter into a contract which required him to pay for the services on consultation and negotiation amounting to 1.755 million ringgit, to SIR Sdn. Bhd. The highest legal fees per hour for consultation and negotiation among the top solicitors in the country could be 2,000 ringgit an hour. For 1.755 million RM, NFC should have the benefit of 877.5 hours of legal services. Yet NFC saw it necessary to pay all the fees in advance. When the purchase of services was on a willing buyer, since NFC was not seen to sign the cheque under gun point, there is no business for the government to charge the accused. It would be a civil suit if NFC was not happy with the deal, as a after thought. There is no business for the police to get involved. The second charge too has no basis since there can be no wrong in receiving payment as part of the contract.

    The accused was not charged for bribing MACC officials as he was reported to have made attempts. It would have been correct for police action had the accused been charged for attempting bribery. But police has no business to charge anybody for entering into contracts and in the performance thereof.

    It would have made sense for NFC to pay that sum of money to handle difficult tasks such as making corruption case go away. In that event, NFC could not deny that it had no case to answer when it was willing to part with the fees worthy of 875 hours of legal consultation and services; the payment was intended to settle the matter outside the judiciary system.

    What Malaysians want to know is why should NFC be given preference treatment by the police to retract on its behalf the contract it entered into with a private company, and worse to get its client charged in court, to retrieve payment already made? Was all this a show to divert attention?

    Soft as the voice of an angel,
    Breathing a lesson unheard,
    Hope with a gentle persuasion
    Whispers her comforting word:
    Wait till the darkness is over,
    Wait till the tempest is done,
    Hope for the sunshine tomorrow,
    After the shower is gone.

    Whispering hope, oh, how welcome thy voice,
    Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.

    If, in the dusk of the twilight,
    Dim be the region afar,
    Will not the deepening darkness
    Brighten the glimmering star?
    Then when the night is upon us,
    Why should the heart sink away?
    When the dark midnight is over,
    Watch for the breaking of day.

    Whispering hope, oh, how welcome thy voice,
    Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.

    yhsiew, the above song was taught to students in srjk multi-racial schools in the 1960s. Sad to say, it is now only sung in private christian schools because of fears that it might tempt children to join the christian faith. Taking its place are mind-blowing songs such as ‘anak itik tok wee mati dalam kolam’.


    PEOPLE, you can drool or salivate. But I think we should be getting angry. What does this mean? It means that we are silly enough to tolerate paying FOUR TIMES the prices for basic goods and services compared to others.
    US $ 50, Aussie $ 50 or even Sing $ 50 can buy you 1 week of groceries in their supermart. Here RM 50 buys you at most 2 days worth of groceries…

    Can you guys believe this? CJ responded to karpal’s assertion that copycat judge has plagarised a singapore judgment was dismissed as “without merit”. The CJ is foolish to do such a thing. Firstly, he should investigate the issue and not come outright to defend the copycat judge. In any case, karpal’s proposed action was to have a RCI and not an investigation by the judiciary. Secondly, his response in effect is a denial of the investigation conclusion of the singapore judiciary on the issue. So the CJ is putting himself at odd with the singapore party. Thirdly, whether or not there was copying can be established quite easily.

    Jib Jib Boleh!

    It will be a clean sweep with clear two third majority by PR to send UMNO b crooks to perform as an Opposition …while one by one is investigated for corruption….until PR needs to stop or else no more Opposition voices like S’pore and PR needs to appoint few like S’pore was doing in the past.
    Najib lost….vanished into thin air…but found with beard dressed like an Arab…disguising as a road sweeper.
    This is my dream for 13th GE result.
    Malaysians can breathe and feel free….proud as Malaysians….race second.

    2012 will see even more scandals to be swept under the carpet. 2012 will also see high profile prosecutions (Ling and Chan in particular) fail, and the perpetrators getting off the hook. 2012 will see more and more curious happenings with the National Feed-a-Lot Corp scandal. 2012 will see Zahid giving Opposition MPs the runaround after promising to meet them over the arms purchases.

    Hence we are not expecting anything new in 2012. It’s business as usual.

    Can umno still win in GE13? Certainly umno has the upper hand. Dont forget. Umno has the might of the gobermen machinery (an abuse of position no doubt) and several other unfair and illegal advantages. In addition the EC behaves like a cogwheel in umno’s election machinery. So regaining putrajaya after GE13, for umno, remains a good possibility. Let us not forget that umno’s victory in GE’s used to be a certainty. That has now be reduced to a mere possibility, albeit given the unlevel field a good one.

    But a mere win for umno would not be good enough. I said this before. Umno must win back the two third majority; as well as perak, selangor and penang. Any lesser victories would be counted as defeat for then umno would implode – starting with the open tussle for the number one position in umno – and then crumble totally. In the circumstances, such victories can only mean one thing, i.e. postponing umno’s final demise by another term. It could also be read as prolonging the people’s agony and suffering another 5yrs.

    So for the opposition the room in which they could plot the way ahead is rather large. (1) To gain an outright victory – the one result everyone is hoping for. (2) To narrow down umno’s already slim GE12 victory. (3) To regain Perak and win a few more states like say malacca, NS, perlis and even johore. So the watershed in 2012 will not be marked by a single event (which is opposition’s victory). It could well be marked by event no (2) or even event no (3) – or both together.

    Seen in this manner, I can quite confidently say that GE13 will be a historic turning point for the nation. I say this on the basis that umno could never regain its 2/3 majority in parliament in GE13.

    So stay focused people whether in opposing the gobermen or anti-Taib, or in “ngo”-ing or “third-force”-ing umno in GE13. No matter what and where the starting point is let our end game be a common one and let it be “ABU” and nothing else.

    Shamsubahrin, CEO of Shamsubahrin Ismail Resources Sdn Bhd, was charged in Session court yesterday for having cheated Mohamad Salleh by promising the NFC chairman his consultation and negotiation services, with the knowledge that the offer was false and intended to cheat him by inducing him to part with a service fee of 1.755 million Ringgit.

    The government should have no business making criminal charge against persons who were involved in private business agreement among themselves. Since NFC funds were under the control of the CEO of NFC, it should be the responsibility of Mohamad Salleh, the CEO of NFC to reclaim the money he willingly parted, whether he was cheated or not should be a matter for the court to decide in a civil suit. It is not the responsibility of the police to reclaim the money. If, however, the police consider that the funds belong to the government, and any use of the funds not linked directly to the objective of the project constituted misappropriation of government funds, the person who should face charges of using government funds not in accordance to the intended purposes should be Mohamad Salleh who had utilized government funds for consultation and negotiations not connected to the business of cow rearing and meat production. Yet instead of charging the persons who willingly handed over government funds under his charge, the government charged the recipient of payment for the contract entered into by two consenting adults.

    If the government considered it proper to charge in court the person who promised to negotiate and provide consultation to a person running a government project for failing to do so, why did not the government initiate criminal charges against the CEO who diverted government funds to purchase condo which had no connection with the business of NFC? Indeed the misappropriation of government funds for condo purchase preceded the plan by the CEO to seek assistance using government funds to solve his personal problems. Yet the CEO of NFC is spared the criminal proceedings and person who might not have committed a criminal offence had been arrested instead.

    We have not heard of government actions against persons who succeeded in selling lands belong to others, and the persons who were cheated of his land and the person who paid to purchase the land had to face each other resulting in the case being decided on the basis of good title or bad title. The fact that the person was cheated of his land was proven; but no police action or investigation had been carried out so as to prevent similar occurrence. Yet now the police find it proper to decide that the agreement between two parties involving advice and negotiations could be termed as cheating when the police might not have the capacity to comprehend the content of the services involved. Are we to believe that the police has now improved its capability to investigates cases beyond clear cut cheating based on official records. Are we to hear that police would now investigate who cheated Boonlert, the Thai who lost his land in Penang two decades ago? Or most probably, we are being treated with a sideshow to divert attention from the cow-gate.
