Najib should present White Paper to Dewan Rakyat when it reconvenes in a fortnight on the initial decisions and actions taken by Special Committee on Auditor-General’s 2012 Report

The Prime Minister and Finance Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak should present a White Paper to the Dewan Rakyat when it reconvenes in a fortnight’s time on Oct. 21 on the initial actions and decisions taken by the Special Committee set up to scrutinize the 2012 Auditor-General’s Report.

The Special Committee was announced yesterday by the Chief Secretary Tan Sri Dr. Ali Hamsa, who will chair the special committee which will comprise the director-general of the Public Service, the Attorney-General as well as representatives from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, Finance Ministry and Royal Malaysian Police.

There is widespread skepticism that the Special Committee will be able to make any difference to end the annual tale of horrors in the Auditor-General’s Reports about rampant corruption, wastage of public funds and abuses of power in the public service.

If the government is serious about wanting to stamp out corruption, waste, extravagance and abuses of power running into billions of ringgit of public funds every year, such a high-level government committee should have been formed immediately after the Auditor-General, Tan Sri Ambrin Buang submitted the 2012 Report to the government in July, and not now – only after the spate of adverse publicity in the past week following the tabling of the 2012 Auditor-General’s Report in Parliament on Oct. 1.

Do the Prime Minister and the Chief Secretary want Malaysians to believe that both of them did not read or know of the 2012 Auditor-General’s Report when they were first submitted to the government in July and were not aware of the enormity of the corruption, wastage of public funds and abuses of power contained therein until they were tabled in Parliament on Tuesday and reported extensively in the media?

With more than two months’ notice to respond to the 2012 Auditor-General’s Reports before they were tabled in Parliament, Malaysians expect a more commensurate and appropriate response from a government which had boasted of a Government Transformation Programme, and not to wait until “the shit hits the fan”.

In the White Paper to Parliament when it reconvenes in a fortnight’s time, the Prime Minister should not only enumerate concrete measures which will end the “annual tale of horrors” in the Auditor-General’s Reports, but also the disciplinary actions which have been taken by all the Ministries against their staff for the malpractices and breaches of government general orders causing unacceptable losses of public funds.

    Must always remember that Ah CHEAT Koc alias Big LIAR alias a FAKE alias SLIME ball alias,,, foremost concern is to ensure he safeguard himself from the ‘implications’ of Altantuya gruesome murder by holding on to Pee Mmm post. And he will kowtim ALL ( even the ‘govern’ office boy, macik, pacik, etc. ) to ensure this, foremost.
    Not to mention the likes of One Mammak, Cowgirl,,, ALLL others, he has to kow-tow , kow-tim, give ways / give chance OR rather ‘being blackmail always’ position he is in to do anything ! He is just using Pee Mmm post just for that , hence he can’t, won’t do anything good for this Nation. A Fake, Slime Ball, Liar any mould he will fit in to ensure THAT – to safeguard from ALtantuya spirit after him !.

    Najib no-time lah. He still suffering from jet-lag from the American trip. Next he’s going to Bali for the APEK summit of silly old men. After that he and the missus is going to the farm in Australia for a much needed holiday to beat the taxes which he’s going to announce end of month. No time lah. His calender is very full, full, full. And he doesn’t trust Muhyiddin.

    There is no political will on the part of Najib and the UMNO government to deal with these problems much less to do anything about them.

    Had the AG report carried any weight, it would have played a role in bringing about the much needed changes. After all, this was not the first time the AG had detailed with brutal truth of the inefficiency of the federal government and the splurges by those mentioned in the reports.

    What more with Ibrahim Ali and Perkasa threatened the likelihood of another May 13th if the RM30bil in BEEP is not given out?

    Should Najib deal will those who abuse public funds, he will anger the civil vote bank and will not get their support.

    “Should Najib deal will those” should be “Should Najib deal WITH those”.

    The authorities lack the moral high ground to act. That’s why the political will to stem out the wrong doings as highlighted by the AG is always not there. If they act, the civil servants would say it is “seperti ketam menyuruh anaknya berjalan betul”.
