133 official documents uploaded,prove Scorpenes corruption is REAL...

The 133 official documents uploaded onto this website are from the Directorate-General of the French National Police and the Judicial Police Directorate’s anti-organized and financial crimes unit.

They were presented to a French anti-corruption court in May and June of 2011. Taken together, they present –in French – the clearest picture to date of the two-decade campaign by the French state-owned defense manufacturer DCN and its subsidiaries to sell Scorpene submarines to the Malaysian Ministry of Defense.

Asia Sentinel’s story summarizing what is in the documents is in a collection in Asia Sentinel's Scribd account. They tell a story of corruption on both sides of the world that included – according to one presentation to the court – “blackmail, bribery, influence peddling, misuse of corporate assets and concealment.”

The documents show that many of these activities were carried out with the full knowledge if not connivance of top officials in both the French and Malaysian governments. View the documents here.

There is considerable doubt in Malaysia that these documents actually exist, and that the story of corruption was fabricated by the opposition Pakatan Rakyat coalition. Here is proof that they exist indeed. Readers who speak French may examine them at their leisure.

The documents were sent anonymously to Asia Sentinel because of our persistence in cataloguing the story of the submarines since October 2006, when Altantuya Shaariibuu, a 28-year-old Mongolian party girl and translator of sorts, was murdered in a patch of jungle near the suburban city of Shah Alam and her body was blown to bits with C4 explosives.

It subsequently became apparent that Altantuya had accompanied Abdul Razak Baginda, the head of Malaysian Strategic Services and a close associate of then-Defense Minister Najib Tun Razak, to Paris and Brest during final negotiations for the contract to train Malaysian sailors and to maintain the submarines once they arrived in Malaysia.

Although the documents indicate French authorities found no record that Altantuya had ever entered France, Asia Sentinel ran a series of pictures of her in Pars in front of the Louis Vuitton Paris shop, the Arc de Triomphe, the Cathedral of Notre Dame and other locations. The story and pictures, which ran on Dec. 5, 2007, can be found here and here.

RM100k to kill Altantuya

Two of Najib’s bodyguards – one of whom said in a formal statement that they were to be paid RM100,000 to kill the woman – were convicted of murder, but the courts carefully stayed away from identifying who had ordered her death.

The case eventually spread to France, where lawyers led by William Bourdon were engaged by the Malaysian NGO Suaram to attempt to get to the bottom of the case. Their efforts led French anti- corruption police to raid the offices of DCN and its subsidiaries.

Thousands of documents were seized, along with computers and vast stores of documents and files. For the better part of two months, prosecutors detailed the evidence in a French courtroom.

They will stay on the Asia Sentinel website as a public service for readers to compile their own evidence of a scandal that infected two governments.

Zahid Hamidi says dont know about alleged sales of state secrets...

Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi today told Parliament that his ministry does not know about allegations that state secrets had been sold to foreign countries.

"As far as the ministry is knows, to date, no information being leaked out of Malaysia has been detected," he said in his adjournment speech to Parliament about ten minutes before midnight.

He added that the ministry has "no information" about claims that Terasasi Hong Kong Ltd had sold Malaysian secret documents to Thint Asia, also known as Thales International, which is a subsidiary of DCNS, one the companies responsible for the sale of two Scorpene submarines to Malaysia.

NONE"The ministry also does not have any information about claims that Terasasi received periodical payments from Thint Asia," he said in his five minute speech in response to Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar (right). 

Responding to queries by Nurul Izzah whether Malaysia would request to be an observer to the French tribunal on the Scorpene case to gain access to its investigation papers, Ahmad Zahid said this did not arise as there is no ongoing trial of the matter in France.

The French court - which adopts an inquisitive system - is currently at its investigation stage into alleged corruption by DCNS and has yet to proceed to trial.

'No need for RCI'


He added there was no necessity for the setting up of a royal commission of inquiry to scrutinise the 1.341 billion euro submarine purchase as it adhered to the Defence Procurement Procedure and Manual.

"It involved various stages of approval including at the technical committee and price negotiation committee after detailed evaluation was made to ensure it suited the needs of the Malaysian Armed Forces," he said.

He added that a parliamentary standing committee for defence procurement is also not required, because such procurements are laid out in the country's budget, which is debated and passed by Parliament.

"Every expenditure is also subjected to the scrutiny and reprimand of Auditor-General's Office.

"The government also views that the process of procurement which involves strategic defence equipment, should not be discussed openly," he said.

Ahmad Zahid's comments last night was the first official response given to Parliament close to a month after the alleged sales of Malaysian defence secrets was
revealed by human rights group Suaram in Bangkok.

Terasasi is alleged to have received 36 million euro (RM142 million) from DCNS for among others, the ‘sale' of a highly confidential report comprising the Malaysian Navy's evaluation for the order of the submarines.- malaysiakini

Zahid Hamidi kata gomen tak tahu tentang dakwaan jualan dokumen sulit pertahanan...

Menteri Pertahanan Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi berkata kerajaan tiada maklumat mengenai dakwaan berhubung penjualan dokumen pertahanan negara kepada negara asing.

"Sepanjang pengetahuna kementerian sehingga kini tidak ada maklumat keluar dari Malaysia," katanya lagi dalam ucapan penangguhannya di Dewan Rakyat lewat malam tadi.

Tambahnya, kementerian itu juga tidak pernah membayar komisyen secara langsung, mahupun tidak langsung kepada mana-mana syarikat dalam perolehan kapal selam Scorpene

"Perolehan kapal selam dibuat secara runding terus selaras dengan tatacara perolehan kerajaan dengan syarikat pembuat iaitu syarikat Perancis dan Sepanyol yang telah mendapat persetujuan kerajaan masing-masing," katanya lagi.

Tambahnya, kementerian itu juga tiada sebarang maklumat mengenai dakwaan penjualan dokumen oleh syarikat Terasasi (Hong Kong) kepada syarikat Thint Asia (Thales International), didakwa bernilai 36 juta Euro.

"Kementerian juga tidak mempunyai maklumat dakwaan bayaran secara berkala daripada Thint Asia kepada syarikat Terasasi (Hong Kong)," katanya.

Tiada perbicaraan berlangsung di Perancis

Perkara tersebut ditimbulkan terdahulu oleh Nurul Izzah Anwar (PKR-Lembah Pantai) ketika mengemukakan usul penangguhan mesyuarat di akhir persidangan.

Dalam ucapan tersebut, Nurul Izzah antara lainnya bertanya menteri sekiranya Malaysia akan memohon untuk menjadi pemerhati di Mahkamah Tribunal Perancis untuk mendapat akses kepada siasatan berhubung kes tersebut.

Ahmad Zahid bagaimanapun berkata keperluan itu tidak timbul.

"Kerajaan Malaysia difahamkan tidak ada perbicaraan berlangsung di Perancis berhubung isu kapal selam Scorpene, justeru tidak timbul soal kerajaan akan mohon jadi pemerhati," katanya.

Mengulas satu lagi soalan Nurul Izzah berhubung cadangan penubuhan suruhanjaya diraja untuk menyiasat pembelian kapal selam tersebut, Ahmad Zahid juga berkata langkah itu tidak perlu.

"Pembelian kelengkapan angkatan tentera dibuat ikut tatacara pelaksanaan kontrak perolehan peralatan pertahan negara.

"Ia melibatkan pelbagai pertingkat kelulusan termasuk jawatankuasa teknikal dan jawatankuasa rundingan harga setelah penilaian teliti dibuat demi memastikan perolehan tersebut menepati keperluan ATM (Angkatan Tentera Malaysia).

Tak perlu j/kuasa tetap parlimen

"Selain itu rujukan juga dibuat kepada Jabatan Peguam Negara bagi mendapatkan kelulusan ke atas klausa kontrak tersebut," katanya.

Kelulusan kemudiannya dibuat di peringkat Kementerian Kewangan setelah kesemua terma dan kelulusan untuk rundingan terus itu dikemukakan, tambahnya.

Menjawab satu lagi soalan Nurul Izzah, menteri berkata kerajaan juga berpandangan bahawa sistem jawatankuasa tetap parlimen untuk pertahanan tidak perlu diwujudkan.

Jelasnya, rancangan untuk membeli kelengkapan ketenteraan telahpun dinyataka dalam anggaran belanjawan yang akan dibahaskan dan diluluskan di parlimen.

"Proses perolehan aset juga adalah tertakluk kepada peraturan-peraturan yang ditetapkan kerajaan seperti arahan perbendaharaan dan tatacara prosedur kewangan.

"Manakala itu, setiap perbelanjaan tertakluk kepada pemeriksaan atau teguran Jabatan Audit Negara. Kerajaan juga berpandangan proses perolehan yang melibatkan kelengkapan pertahanan yang strategik tidak wajar dibincangkan secara terbuka," katanya.

Jawapannya di parlimen itu merupakan kenyataan rasmi pertama oleh kerajaan kepada parlimen setelah dakwaan penjualan rahsia pertahanan negara itu berlarutan hampir sebulan apabila didedahkan oleh NGO hak asasi Suaram di Bangkok.- malaysiakini
