Menteri Kewangan, Lim Guan Eng menjelaskan bahawa cukai jualan dan perkhidmatan (SST) yang dikenakan bagi pembelian prabayar telco tidak sepatutnya ditanggung oleh pengguna.
Beliau ketika ditemui pemberita selepas Sesi Taklimat SST bersama Menteri Kewangan di Perai di sini sebentar tadi berkata, pengguna terpaksa menanggung cukai berkenaan apabila kredit daripada pembelian tambah nilai telah dipotong berikutan masalah teknikal yang dihadapi.
"Saya akan mengeluarkan arahan bagi memastikan pembeli prabayar RM10 akan diberikan kredit sebanyak RM10 juga tanpa potongan.
"Pengurangan kredit berkenaan pula akan dikembalikan dalam bentuk rebat," katanya.
Hari ini terdapat pengguna yang menyuarakan ketidakpuasan hati apabila hanya diberikan kredit dengan potongan nilai 6 peratus selepas menambah nilai prabayar telco.
Sebagai contoh, pengguna yang menambah nilai sebanyak RM10 hanya menerima kredit bernilai RM9.50. Caj sebanyak 6 peratus berkenaan turut dikenakan bagi jumlah tambah nilai lain. - Kosmo Online

Kes bekas perisik: SPRM
rampas tunai AS$6.3 juta...
Jumlah terbesar AS$4.07 juta ditemui di sebuah kondominium sewa di Cyberjaya malam tadi, sejurus selepas pihak berkuasa menahan seorang ahli perniagaan di Kelantan.
Timbalan Ketua Pesuruhjaya SPRM, Datuk Seri Azam Baki memberitahu pemberita pada sidang akhbar hari ini pihaknya masih mencari kira-kira AS$5 juta, yang dianggap sebagai hak milik kerajaan persekutuan.
Rupa2nya spy untuk menyamun.
Beliau juga menggesa sesiapa, termasuk penjawat awam, yang mempunyai maklumat mengenai kes ini atau tahu tempat wang tunai tersebut disimpan untuk tampil ke hadapan dan SPRM berjanji akan meletakkan mereka di bawah perlindungan saksi.
Ini termasuk mereka yang mungkin menyimpan wang tersebut, katanya.
Timbalan Ketua Pesuruhjaya (Operasi) Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM), Azam Baki menunjukkan wang tunai USD6.3 juta (RM25.7 juta) yang dirampas di beberapa lokasi mempunyai kaitan dengan penyalahgunaan kuasa seorang Ketua Pengarah dan 7 pegawai Organisasi Perisikan Luar Malaysia (MEIO) serta ahli perniagaan bergelar Datuk.
Hasil rampasan berkenaan ialah sebahagian daripada jumlah keseluruhan bernilai USD12 juta (RM49 juta) yang diseludup masuk melalui Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA) sebelum PRU 14 lalu.
Antara Makcik Bond dan Bapa Penyamun...
Malam merdeka 31 Ogos 2018, makcik James Bond Malaysia berpakaian warna oren dan kuncu-kuncunya sedang beristirehat di ‘singgahsana’ ibu pejabat SPRM di Putrajaya sambil mendengar dentuman bunga api merayakan kemerdekaan negara buat kali kedua.
Sayup-sayup kedengaran suara-suara penyesalan didengar pegawai bertugas seolah-olah apa yang mereka rancangkan seminggu sebelum PRU 14 diharap berjaya.
Keadaan dalam lokap sesungguhnya amat menitik beratkan ‘keselesaan’ para penghuninya cuma yang tiada bantal empuk ribuan ringgit nilainya dan tilam spring untuk berkuda-kuda di atasnya.
Namun kuasa Allah SWT tidak siapa dapat menghalangnya.
Baru USD6.3 juta (RM25.7 juta) atau 52.5 peratus daripada USD12 juta (RM49 juta) wang yang diseludup masuk tanpa diisytihar kepada Bank Negara Malaysia dalam 19 dan 16 bungkusan kemas not 100 berkepala Benjamin Franklin dalam matawang dolar Amerika Syarikat berjaya dijejaki dan ditemui.
Berbeza nasib dialami Najib Razak, dia juga yang beruntung masih mampu menipu dalam karya lebongannya di Facebook setelah tujuh pertuduhan dikenakan dan wang ikat jamin RM1 juta dibayar pun tak sanggup duduk dalam lokap lebih lama dari semalaman.
Nampaknya nasib mereka berdua bagai Rosmah Mansor dan Ziana Zain di saat rakyat berpesta menyambut kejatuhan rejim dan kemerdekaan sebenar hingga Najib sendiri terpaksa berlakon baik dengan pelajar maahad tahfiz malam tadi.
Dan ini jawapan netizen terhadap drama sebabak sekebun cinta nan berbunga ini:
“Dulu masa jadi PM tak pulak ingat anak yatim atau pelajar tahfiz. Menari lagu nasyid "Pretty Woman", boros dll dsb. Baguslah sekarang dah taubuat. Terimakasih PH”.
Pencuri dan penyangak pun boleh menyamar, inikan pula perompak penjual agama berjubah berserban ratusan lilit di atas kepala. - f/bk
Najib’s Intelligence Chief Hasanah
Was A Shameless Thief ...
The disgraced Intelligence Chief – Hasanah Abdul Hamid – has finally been arrested, but for different charges. The former director-general of the Malaysian External Intelligence Organisation (MEIO) had previously lodged a police report over a letter she sent to the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency apparently soliciting for support for ex-premier Najib Razak.
She wanted the police to investigate the whistle-blower because the letter falls under the Official Secrets Act (OSA). Her evil plan was to hide behind the OSA when in reality, the woman spy chief had committed the highest degree of treasonous and treacherous act when she wrote to invite foreign power to interfere in the sovereignty of Malaysia.
There are many ways to skin a cat. The higher a crook is in an organization hierarchy, the tougher it gets to prosecute them. Al-Capone, American most notorious gangster, practically controlled Chicago like his private business. He was untouchable by the U.S. authorities for years. The ultimate brilliant strategy that managed to put him in federal prison was prosecuting him in 1931 for tax evasion.
Who would have thought that a simple tool such as tax evasion was all it took to skin the American most brutal gangster? Likewise, for reasons known only to Royal Malaysia Police, they have no intention of charging Ms. Hasanah for treasonous and treacherous act, despite her admission to the authenticity of the letters sent to CIA Director Gina Cheri Haspel.
Thanks to 61 years of culture of corruption spread by previous Barisan Nasional coalition government, every institution in the country has caught the disease, one way or another. Not only the chief of Malaysia’s national security covert intelligence agency was entrusted by her boss Najib to write to CIA, she was also tasked with transferring some money to a secret location.
Monkey see monkey do, as the saying goes. Perhaps they were inspired by Najib’s looting and plundering. So, while her officers from the “Research Division” of the Prime Minister’s Department were transporting money after Barisan Nasional lost the May 9th general election, they couldn’t resist but helped themselves to the cash – reportedly about US$400,000 (RM1.6 million).
Hasanah Abdul Hamid was arrested when she was called to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters for interrogation. Prior to her arrest, seven civil servants from the intelligence agency known as the “Research Division”, including a diplomatic officer, were remanded in investigations into the alleged misappropriation of 14th general election funds.
When she was produced at the Magistrate’s Court here this morning, Hasanah was dressed in the infamous orange lock-up attire and wearing a “purple tudung” (veil or headscarf). Handcuffed, the former intelligence chief covered her face from being photographed by journalists, presumably too ashamed over her crimes.
Like other guilty criminals, covering her face suggests that she most likely had indeed helped herself to the stash of cash. She is being charged under Section 23 of the MACC Act for the abuse of power. If found guilty, the Bond girl could face up to maximum 20 years imprisonment and a fine of 5 times the value of the gratification or RM10,000, whichever is higher.
It appears that Hasanah and her boys aren’t that different from the 17 security personnel who were remanded for taking cash amounting to RM3.5 million from the Prime Minister’s Office. Still, the amount of cash that Hasanah was transporting raises another question – why ex-PM Najib Razak entrusted the spy agency to transport the election fund?
By Najib’s own admission, there were RM117 million cash in his children’s’ luxury condominium, RM3.5 million cash in his office and now RM1.6 million cash being transported by the intelligence agency. From where did Najib manage to raise so much money, if not stolen from the national coffers? It’s quite amazing that a spy chief was nothing but a cheapskate thief. - ft
JJ’s RM2 Billion Fortune Opens Up A Can Of Worms – Malaysia Has At Least 200 Billionaires...
Who says Malay-Muslims are dirt poor? Those who think so should get their head examined. The ethnic Malays should celebrate because at least 200 of their Muslim brothers (and sisters) are actually billionaires. In fact, Malaysia should be ranked third, behind the United States (680 billionaires) and China (338) but ahead of Germany (152), on the list of countries with the most billionaires.
The problem is this – those 200 billionaires cannot disclose their wealth because they got it by plundering, looting and stealing peoples’ money. Yes, they are mostly politicians from the previous Barisan Nasional government. Such conclusion is arrived when the mother of the late Jamaluddin Jarjis filed for “faraid (wealth distribution)” certificate at the Syariah court over his RM2.082 billion estate.
Jamaluddin Jarjis, popularly known as JJ, who died in a helicopter crash in 2015, was a very close friend of former Prime Minister Najib Razak. Sure, we should not bitch about dead people. But hey, we didn’t start it. It was his 85-year-old mother who has actually opened a can of worms that has gotten millions of tongues wagging on social media.
Besides, just because JJ was dead doesn’t mean his extraordinary wealth cannot be questioned. If a man’s ill-gotten fortune is automatically made legitimate after he died, then drug lord Pablo Escobar, gangster Al-Capone and dictator Ferdinand Marcos’s dirty money should become legitimate overnight and belonged to their family members after their death.
The fact that JJ’s mother, Aminah Abdullah, is forced to go to court to get her fair share of wealth speaks volumes that there is probably family feud going on for the RM2.1 billion estate. Under the Shariah Law, the mother gets one-sixth of the estate’s assets, the wife gets one-eighth and the remainder is shared among the children.
The assets in dispute include 22 landed properties in Pahang and Kuala Lumpur, 21 bank accounts with a total of more than RM15 million, several properties in the United States and Mecca, as well as a company he owned. Aminah is questioning how her son could have allegedly given some of the property, which includes 19 companies, to his four children.
One-sixth of RM2.1 billion is worth a staggering RM350 million. That’s a truckload of money for Mr. Jamaluddin’s mother. But the jaw-dropping question here isn’t about wheelchair-bound Aminah claiming her share of the inheritance. The flabbergasted question everyone is wondering is how Jamaluddin Jarjis could accumulate such a massive fortune.
As former Rompin Member of Parliament from 1990 until his death, JJ was one of 191 UMNO warlords who get to decide the prime minister of the country. He was Second Minister of Finance (2002-2004), Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (2004), Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation (2004-2008) and Ambassador to the U.S. (2009-2012).
While it’s not nice to badmouth a dead man, its worth to note that like his buddy Najib Razak, Jamaluddin Jarjis wasn’t a saint when come to pretty girls. We’re talking about a minister – Jamaluddin Jarjis – who was allegedly to have molested a female worker in the Havana Club at a five-star hotel – Hotel Meridien – in Kuala Lumpur back in April 2008.
Amazingly, barely hours after the incident, the victim whose buttock was grabbed withdrew her statutory complaint against JJ, with rumours that she was paid millions to keep her mouth shut. The case was never heard again. To save his close buddy from potential trouble, Prime Minister Najib posted JJ to America as Malaysia’s Ambassador.
Jamaluddin Jarjis was also somehow involved in the 1MDB scandal when it was exposed in 2016 that Goldman Sachs hired Anis Jamaludin, daughter of Jamaluddin Jarjis, as far back as 2010. Ms Anis worked for Goldman as an investment banking analyst in Singapore from July to November 2010. Tim Leissner, then Goldman’s co-president for Southeast Asia, was working to forge closer business ties in Malaysia.
It is believed that the idea of 1Malaysia Peoples’ Housing Scheme (PR1MA) was mooted by JJ. Last year, the then-PM Najib Razak revealed that the PR1MA Malaysia had awarded more than RM15 billion worth of contracts to 574 Bumiputera firms. Overall, PR1MA had awarded more than RM22.4 billion worth of contracts to its business partners – comprising developers, contractors as well as vendors.
Yet, despite Najib’s promise to build hundreds of thousands of the affordable housing for the people – every year – the fact remains only 11,944 units of PR1MA homes have been sold by November, 2017, as admitted by former Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Shahidan Kassim. Interestingly, JJ was actually the Chairman of 1Malaysia Peoples’ Housing Scheme (PR1MA).
Had he benefited from the scheme through kickbacks during the process of awarding the contracts, hence, resulting in under delivery of housing for the people? PR1MA is clearly a cash cow where the chairman could easily enrich himself. JJ had only served the Cabinet as minister for a short period from 2002 to 2008 and he was already worth a mind-boggling RM2.1 billion.
Therefore, it’s not an exaggeration to estimate that the newly crowned UMNO President Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is worth conservatively RM20 billion. As the former Deputy Prime Minister, not to mention his past important portfolio in Defence Ministry and Home Ministry, there’s little doubt that Mr. Zahid possesses 10 times more wealth than JJ. Not bad for a Malay who spoke very little English.
Two years ago, Mr. Zahid courted controversial when his plan to import 1.5 million Bangladesh workers into the country was exposed. Using his brother Abdul Hakim Hamidi as his proxy, each cheap labour would be charged RM3,000 – potentially generating a cool revenue of RM4.5 billion for the Hamidi family. The project was believed to have proceeded secretly.
Heck, it’s safe to presume all the 191 UMNO warlords have reached the billion ringgit milestone in their capacity as division chiefs who determine the fate of the UMNO president. All the 191 UMNO warlords have their own pet projects to enrich themselves. That was how the Malaysian prime minister, by virtue of being UMNO president, kept his power.
For example, Haris Onn Hussein, the brother of former Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein Onn has a 20.16% stake in Ekovest, a company awarded the contract to build the Setiawangsa-Pantai Expressway (SPE) at a cost of RM3.738 billion with a concession period with the Government for 53½ years. That’s a cash cow the Hussein family can milk for half a century.
Even a Tier-3 UMNO warlords such as Tajuddin Abdul Rahman (pix,below) – nicknamed “Six Million Dollar Man” for his role in offering bribe to the tune of RM6 million for his UMNO division chief post – was already a billionaire years ago. This is the same Tajuddin who screamed until foaming at the mouth warning the Malay-Muslims about “Christianity, Chinese and Communist”.
Amusingly, his own “Ali Baba” company – Detik Utuh Sdn Bhd – was a partner with Chinese-based Crest Builder Holdings Bhd in a 49:51 equity participation involved in building Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Tapah campus in Perak in 2013. Crest Builder had put the university’s construction cost at RM285.89 million.
While the construction cost was nothing to shout about, Mr. Tajuddin was given a cool 23-year concession to setup and maintain the campus, at a staggering RM1.3 billion. Essentially, Tajuddin’s Detik Utuh, an inactive construction company with no prior performance record in the industry, has been milking RM56.5 million every year for maintaining “new buildings”.
Like UMNO’s 191 division chiefs, their comrades from the 191 MCA division chiefs were believed to have done quite well too. For example, MCA Deputy President Wee Ka Siong, despite being mocked and laughed off as “Cry Baby Wee”, became an instant billionaire through his pet project – the RM12 billion PKFZ scandal – first hatched in 2001.
According to Forbes, there are 17 Malaysian billionaires in terms of US dollar in net worth. There are more if the fortune is measured in Malaysian Ringgit. Adding these 17 Malaysian business owners to the 191 UMNO warlords and voila, you have more than 200 billionaires. And we have not even talked about family members of politicians who become billionaire due to nepotism or using crooked means.
Nazifuddin, second son of ex-premier Najib Razak is a jolly good case study. Mr. Nazifuddin was linked to a Get-Rich-Ponzi-Scheme called UFUN. In 2015, all hell broke loose when the uFun Store had allegedly swindled 120,000 people involving at least 38 billion Baht (US$1.13 billion, £720 million, RM4 billion) in Thailand.
Now, will it be an exaggeration to suggest that Najib’s net worth is at least RM100 billion? In the same breath, those who believe that the ethnic Chinese were rich because they have robbed the Malays should think again. At least, they should be proud UMNO has produced 191 Malay billionaires, more than the Chinese. Jamaluddin Jarjis is the clearest proof!! - ft
