Self made billionaire Azmin Ali

PKR may be hard on cash but not Azmin Ali who goes around making money through ways and means.
At the last election 13th GE, Azmin Ali SAPU all the donation for PKR.  All this was done without Anwar's knowledge until there were complaints from the donors.
Today Rafizi is praising Azmin Ali as a man misunderstood by the public.
Now given that Azmin Ali has been doing things without the knowledge of PKR the party and Anwar back, do you think Azmin Ali can be trusted to be the MB of Selangor or the right hand man for Anwar? Why do you think Rafizi is strongly behind Azmin?
So if Anwar wins in the Kajang Festival, who do you think will SAPU all the assets in the State of Selangor?
Khalid also said his administration was informed that the MACC is currently investigating allegations that funds meant for the PKNS football club (FC) was misused. Three state executive council members will be tasked with monitoring funds meant for the PKNS football team amounting to RM9 million per year.

Since Pakatan Rakyat took over the Selangor State Government in 2008, the Selangor State Economic Development Corporation or SEDC (PKNS) — the state agency currently facing controversy regarding the ‘sacking’ of Azmin Ali from the Board of Directors and the non-renewal of the employment contracts of 22 staff members — has spent RM40 million on football.
Actually, just to digress a bit, Azmin Ali was not sacked. Board Members serve for a certain term and retire at the end of their term and then offer themselves for reappointment. If they indicate that they do not wish to continue another term then they are not reappointed to the Board. That is how it usually works.
So, when the Board met, it did not renew Azmin’s term. The PKNS General Manager then wrote Azmin a letter telling the latter that he had been sacked, which is not true at all, because, if he was not reappointed a Board Member, and hence is no longer a Board Member, how can they sack him?
According to PKNS, Azmin was the one who asked for that letter to be sent and, of course, the man who collaborated with Azmin in creating this drama of his sacking was himself sacked together with his very expensive ‘assistant’. Now you know why Azmin’s people protested when action was taken against his collaborators.
The same for the 22 staff whose contracts were not renewed. But we will talk about that matter later in another episode. Today we want to talk about the RM40 million that PKNS has spent to finance the PKNS Football Club ( since Pakatan Rakyat took over the State Government.
The RM40 million was the total spent over about six years. Initially, just before Pakatan Rakyat took over in 2008, it was less than RM2.5 million per year. Then it started to increase and over the last three years it has shot up to as high as RM10 million a year today.
The money to finance the PKNS FC comes from two subsidiaries, SIC and Selaman. The problem that PKNS is now facing is that the accounts are in a mess and no one can figure out how the money was spent or what has happened to it. Most of the expenditure is not supported by documentary evidence.
The people involved in the PKNS FC are as follows:
1. Three Senior accountants of PKNS (salaried and full-fledged PKNS staff)
i. Azhar Ahmad.
ii. Nor Hisham Ghouth.
iii. Tuan Hj Ishak Bakri  – Juruodit PKNS FC.
2. Sports manager – Raja Mohamad Raja Harun.
3. Sales Manager Shah Alam PKNS – (Azmi Adnan).
4. Land Manager Shah Alam PKNS – (Mahfizul Rashid).
5. Security Manager PKNS – (Roslan Sekin).
6. Clerk from finance department (he has since left PKNS after the fraud issues emerged) – Farid Buniran.
7. Hamzah Jaafar.
8. Suhaimi Hamid.
All these people, who cost the taxpayers about RM200,000 a year in salaries, are paid by PKNS, on top of the allowances they receive to ‘manage’ the PKNS FC. They are, of course, aware of the mismanagement of PKNS FC’s funds but no one wants to be the whistleblower, for obvious reasons — they are being well paid to ‘toe the party line’.
I suppose Pakatan Rakyat is very particular about ‘toeing the party line’. Hence these people are doing just that while enjoying millions in salaries and allowances over the last six years and while the PKNS FC bleeds another RM40 million.
