Menteri pukoi golf di AS,beli-belah guna wang anak yatim...



Selepas beberapa kontroversi dalam pentadbiran sebuah yayasan di bawah Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Pusat Pemantauan dan Pendedahan Maklumat Kebangsaan (NOW) hari ini mendedahkan, pihak berkenaan turut menggunakan wang daripada tabung anak yatim bagi membiayai perbelanjaan seorang menteri dan isterinya di Amerika Syarikat (AS).

Pengarah NOW, Akmal Nasir mendakwa satu rombongan diadakan 21 Mei hingga 29 Mei 2014, turut melewati bandar Washington DC, Minnesota dan Iowa.

Beliau memberitahu satu sidang media di Kuala Lumpur hari ini, pembayaran lawatan bagi perbelanjaan menteri dan rombongannya itu dibuat melalui sebuah institusi di bawah kawalan Yayasan Pembangunan Ekonomi Islam (Yapeim).

"Lebih mendukacitakan, pembayaran itu dibuat melalui institusi kawalan Yapeim iaitu Yayasan Pembangunan Anak Yatim/Miskin (Pemangkin) yang mana duit itu adalah khusus untuk kegunaan bantuan anak yatim dan miskin," katanya.

Akmal mendedahkan jumlah keseluruhan perbelanjaan diambil daripada tabung anak yatim dan miskin bagi menampung perbelanjaan menteri bersama isteri serta rombongan itu dianggarkan RM410,978.56.

"Walaupun perjalanan tersebut untuk tujuan 'Pemantapan dan Pemerkasaan' Kelab Santun Yapeim, namun ia bersifat suka ria dan langsung tiada amal jariah," katanya.

Akmal pada sidang media itu mendedahkan antara aktiviti rombongan tersebut termasuk majlis keraian menteri (golf), jamuan promosi (keraian VVIP) dan lawatan 4 hari pada 22, 23, 26 dan 27 Mei 2014 ke Leesburg Outlet + OT.

Pihaknya, katanya, memeriksa destinasi tersebut dan mendapati ia sebuah pusat membeli-belah 'upscale outlet' barangan berjenama yang terletak di Washington DC.

"Ia dikunjungi rombongan menteri tersebut sebanyak 4 kali di mana perbelanjaan pengangkutan sahaja mencecah RM5,908.35.

"Saya pasti pendedahan ini menjangkau imaginasi rakyat Malaysia.

"Bagaimana satu badan disalahgunakan untuk aktiviti menteri seperti golf, ke pusat membeli belah dan sebagainya?" soalnya.

NOW turut melampirkan bukti invois yang menunjukkan yayasan tersebut membayar sejumlah wang mencecah RM400,000 untuk kos keseluruhan rombongan tersebut.

"Itu duit anak yatim. Ramai yang keluar negara atas urusan rasmi, tetapi bila gunakan duit untuk program santai, ia di luar matlamat, dan itu salah.

"Tindakan menteri itu melampau dan mengkhianati agama, bangsa dan negara," katanya.

Justeru, badan bebas itu mendesak agar satu siasatan menyeluruh dijalankan, di mana setiap perbelanjaan yayasan tersebut disemak dan diedit secara terbuka.

"Siasatan ini juga perlu mengesan jumlah wang yang hilang akibat ketirisan, kebocoran dan salah guna kedudukan," kata Akmal.

Ini merupakan pendedahan kali keempat dakwaan salahguna wang rakyat timbul yang melibatkan yayasan di bawah seliaan Jabatan Perdana Menteri itu.

Sebelum ini, NOW mendedahkan ia terlibat menggunakan dana yayasan itu bagi aktiviti berkaitan pilihan raya kecil (PRK) Rompin tahun ini. – tmi


'Minister went golfing, shopping with orphans' money'...

An Umno minister's trip to the United States costing RM410,978 was allegedly paid for by Yayasan Pembangunan Ekonomi Islam Malaysia (Yapeim) through a subsidiary fund meant for orphans and poor children, the National Oversight and Whistleblowers (NOW) centre claims.

Citing invoices billed to Yayasan Pembangunan Anak Yatim/Miskin (Pemangkin) that it obtained, NOW’s director Akmal Nasir said the trip to Washington DC, Iowa and Minnesota from May 21 to 29, 2014, involved golf, and trips to shopping malls.

Akmal said the minister's wife was also part of the entourage.

The invoices he obtained showed that RM274,493 was spent on the return tickets for the minister and his wife.

Other expenses spent on the minister include RM1,658.96 for golf, RM1,565.98 for a dinner function and RM3,200.72 for souvenirs.

Accommodation for the minister and his wife for three nights came to RM2,675.43 in total.

"If the minister has any pride left, he should resign immediately. It doesn't matter who is responsible… the money used was money meant for orphans.

"Even if there were such programmes, when you use it for leisure, it's wrong," Akmal said.

This is NOW's fourth expose on YaPEIM.

Malaysiakini is withholding the name of the minister until he responds to our queries.

Yesterday, it was reported that the foundation's chairperson and deputy chairperson were appointed by Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Jamil Khir Baharom to YaPEIM's board of trustees.

The duo, along with the deputy chairperson's husband and son, are reported to be earning almost RM2 million annually from the various positions they hold in Yapeim and its subsidiaries.


On Monday, Akmal claimed that the Yapeim deputy chairperson, who is a Kelantan Wanita Umno member, had allegedly received RM223,000 from the foundation for community activities that coincided with the Rompin by-election.

However, there is reportedly no record of any activities taking place during the by-election.

It was previously reported that a Kelantan Umno member and the foundation were being investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission for misappropriating flood relief funds.

The Rompin by-election on May 5 ended in BN's favour, with the MP, Hasan Arifin, now serving as the new Public Accounts Committee chairperson.- mk
