No to study leave to escape prosecution!

The blog Pejuang Bangsa is one of a coterie of Khairy’s salaried Setiakawan blogs and operated by one or two person at RM7-8,000 a month salary. Nama saja macam real. They posted this morning a sympathy spin using comments by PAS Youth Chief, Nasruddin Tantawi on Khairy’s “stand down” from politics.

Typical of Setiakawan bloggers. Even at their last drawn salary from Khairy, they are still pathetic bloggers – ill-informed and shallow. They should know that Nasruddin is not seen within PAS circle as bright and capable youth leader. Most of the time he talks rubbish. The choice of person to say those words only weakens the credibility of his spin.

Pejuang Bangsa seemed ignorant to a reality that when a public personality is off away to further study, it means there is something brewing. Khairy does not need another degree or a doctoral degree. What happen is, he got his knickers in a twist.

In the past, study leave or offer for ambassadorial position or migrating abroad are meant to tide a hot local situation down. In the case of Khairy, it looks to be a permanent one and Pejuang Bangsa will have to look for a new master.

But if it is to escape prosecution for any wrongdoing, then that is wrong!

Pejuang Bangsa should be following Sakmongkol’s writing with regard to Alcatel. Read here, here and here.

If Sakmongkol inference was not clear enough, read this from Bigdogdotcom here.

Still not clear enough?

Here are rearranged excerpt from The Star report:

Documents made public by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the US Department of Justice on Monday alleged that French equipment supplier Alcatel paid bribes to employees of Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) in exchange for non-public information.

The SEC alleged that Alcatel Malaysia’s management consented to these payments and those who got the kickbacks were two consultants who received payments of US$200,000 and US$500,000 through US bank accounts purportedly for market research.

Because of the bribes, it claimed, Alcatel won a US$85mil contract. The contract is said to be for the deployment of equipment for Celcom’s 3G rollout under phase 2 in 2006.

Source informed that Alcatel sold to Celcom an unworkable solution from a bad solution provider. Didn’t quite pick up the name but it sounded like Nortel. TM has a lawsuit against Alcatel.

Sakmongkol had disclosed that the consultant paid for USD200,000, refered as Consultant A was Dato Dr Norraesah, Chairman of Alcatel Malaysia, French trained economist and appointed member of UMNO Supreme Counsel.

Isn’t it odd that a Chairman be paid Consultancy fee?

However, Sakmongkol did not disclose that the Consultant B being paid USD500,000 was wunderboy Khairy Jamaluddin.
