“Saya tidak fikir ia langkah yang betul. Mana-mana pihak boleh menyumbang kepada mana-mana badan selagi ia tidak melanggar undang-undang atau perlembagaan,” katanya selepas berucap pada majlis pelancaran buku “The End of Umno?” di sini hari ini.

KUALA LUMPUR: Former Second Finance Minister Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah today questioned the government’s motive in setting up 1MDB which he alleged has seen a lot of misappropriation with no action taken.

Husni also asked why USD4 billion was invested in Aabar Investments PJS Ltd, which was not owned by IPIC.

IPIC and its subsidiary Aabar Investments PJS had said in a joint statement last April that the British Virgin Islands firm with an almost identical name, Aabar Investments PJS Ltd, “was not an entity within either corporate group”.

“Was there any legal action taken against the management of 1MDB for investing money in the wrong places?” he asked when debating the 2017 Supply Bill in Parliament. Read more

He spoke in Parliament today (Oct 24, 2016).

However, what is most interesting are the questions that he submitted to Parliament for answers. Will he get the right answers, either oral or  written?

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 24 ― Mention Sungai Buloh to most people under 40 living in the Klang Valley and there will not even be a flicker of recognition for what used to be home to the second biggest leprosy settlement in the world.

Set up in 1930, the settlement is largely forgotten now but one woman is determined to remember the people who lived there by starting a “story museum.”

Heroes of Sungai Buloh

Tan Ean Nee, who is spearheading the project, said the objective is to restore the dignity robbed from these leprosy survivors. They were shunned by society before an effective cure for their disease was found.

Tan, who spent the last 10 years researching the settlement’s residents and helping them find the children they were forced to give up at birth, said it was time to fill in the gaps in their history. Read more
