JPJ duo wanted contributors to sponsor RM35,000

Postby admin » Wed Nov 17, 2010 12:35 am

SEREMBAN: The two Road Transport Department (JPJ) men arrested for allegedly soliciting money from companies to attend an event that never took place here had asked contributors to sponsor the main table for RM35,000.

A source, who claimed to have been approached by the organisers of the so-called Malam Mesra JPJ, said the officers visited his office several times for the contribution.

“They told me if my company sponsored the table, one person from my side would be seated with the VVIPs at the main table,” he told The Star.

It was claimed that Negri Sembilan Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan and Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha would be among the VVIPs at the main table.

The source said his company refused to give the requested amount and was then offered “minor” tables ranging from RM3,000 to RM6,000 in sponsorship.

“They kept insisting and we agreed to give a token sum.

“We received so many calls every day and were actually pressured to give in,” he said.

It was learnt that contributors from outside Negri Sembilan were also approached by the so-called organisers.

An out-of-state transport operator said two men had called at his office to ask his company to sponsor a RM5,000 table.

The company refused to give any money despite the subtle threat that it was “important to have good ties with the JPJ”.

On Saturday, MACC officers detained two JPJ officers and three others for allegedly soliciting up to RM660,000 from individuals and companies between June and October this year to organise the so-called charity event.

The function, scheduled to take place at a hotel here on Oct 2, was never held.

The bulk of the money collected has since been withdrawn from the account belonging to the Negri Sembilan JPJ Sports and Welfare Club.

Checks by anti-corruption officers showed that only RM4,000 was left in the club’s account.

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission state chief Hishamuddin Hashim said yesterday that to date, four companies and individuals had come forward to assist the MACC in investigations.

Remand extended for 6 'event' organisers

Postby admin » Fri Nov 19, 2010 9:10 am

SEREMBAN: The remand of six suspects, including three state Road Transport Department (RTD) employees involved in soliciting funds for a non-existent RTD event, was extended to Tuesday.

The suspects, who were held last week, were brought to the magistrate's court yesterday for a five-day extension after their remand ended on Wednesday.

The group, including three runners, allegedly solicited RM660,000 from individuals and companies to organise a "Malam Mesra JPJ Negri Sembilan" here.

A Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission spokesman said the six would be remanded until Tuesday.

The three RTD employees, aged between 45 and 53, and the runners, aged between 45 and 55, allegedly misused the department's letterhead to solicit funds.

The funds were later withdrawn from an account belonging to the Negri Sembilan RTD Sports and Welfare Club in stages. There was a balance of RM4,000 in the account.

State MACC director Hishammuddin Hashim said that as of yesterday some 40 companies and individuals, who donated to the "event" had come forward to have their statements recorded.

Postby admin » Wed Nov 24, 2010 2:58 am

SEREMBAN: Six individuals, including three Road Transport Depart­ment (JPJ) officers who were arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), have been released on bail.

The six were taken to the Court Complex in Seremban 2 here at 9.30am for bail proceedings before being released yesterday as their remand had ended.

“The MACC does not intend to extend the remand order as we are satisfied with their statements.

“Investigations are ongoing and the six could be called up at anytime to assist us,” said a MACC spokesman.

On Nov 13, MACC officers detained two JPJ officers, aged between 45 and 53 years, and three others for allegedly soliciting up to RM660,000 from individuals and companies between June and October to organise a “Malam Mesra JPJ Negri Sembilan”.

Another officer was also remanded the next day.

State MACC chief Hishamuddin Hashim said the three other people, aged between 45 and 55 years acted as runners.

The function, scheduled to take place at a hotel here on Oct 2, was never held.

The bulk of the money collected has since been withdrawn from the account belonging to the Negri Sembilan JPJ Sports and Welfare Club.

Checks showed that only RM4,000 was left in the club’s account.
