Read this which I got here.
To those who are too lazy to go there below is the juicy part that I think could open up your eyes a bit, not that it is not already open but the sheer absurdity surely would.
Dalam satu senarai kos senggaraan yang dikeluarkan petang ini,
kereta Perdana V6 Executive yang pernah digunakan oleh bekas Menteri
Besar Terengganu, Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh mencatatkan kos tertinggi
Dalam tempoh empat tahun antara 2004 dan 2008, kereta Idris disenggarakan dengan kos RM235,123.08.
Sementara itu, di Putrajaya, seorang lagi pegawai kanan BPR
menyifatkan ‘ada sesuatu yang tidak kena’ dengan kos penyenggaraan
kereta Proton Perdana V6 Executive kerajaan Terengganu itu.
How do you feel? Well I went dizzy for a while when I saw those figures. Considering those figures were quoted by BPR officers, it means that they are into it.
Now lets look into this objectively. Of course that Idris fellow is going to say, he just sent his car for maintenance and do not actually know how much is being charged. he would then say, maybe the Financial Controller would be able to help.
The Financial Controller would say that he signs hundreds of cheques a day and that all cheques sent to him have been vetted by officers from his departments against invoices sent to them and were found to be done according to procedures. He would say it is not the job of his officers to query to the amount. As long as all paper work is properly done, they would approve it.
The Financial Controller would then ask the BPR boys to see the Pegawai in charge of repairs and maintenance who probably is on leave for about a month. After the month's leave is over the Pegawai would come out with a story saying that, he only authorises repairs. He is not involved in setting up the price. He would go on to say that that kind of pricing is standard ever since he started working and so seeing that amount did not surprise him so he signed it.
The Pegawai would then ask the BPR to see the workshop concerned. Upon arrival at the workshop the BPR would learn that it has been closed and that the owner is now selling belacan in Zimbabwe.
The BPR would then go back to their boss and the conversation may might sound something like this,
Boss: What, you can't get an indictment? I have been reported in the papers and and tv that we would get to the bottom of this. If I were to say that we could not gather enough evidence, what do you think the people are going to say?
BPR: But really boss, the workshop is closed.
Boss: Do you know who it belongs too, doesn't matter if he is in Timbuktu or Lagos.
BPR: Yes, we have investigated and it belonged to an UMNO Bahagian bigshot's sister-in-law. Actually we think we know where she is hiding. Do you want us to get her?
Boss: Are crazy? Do you want me to lose my job? Now lets see, we can't get the MB or former MB, the PM would do a Saiful on me if we were to do it.
BPR: We can always frame the controller sir.
Boss: That is why you are only an officer and I am your boss. You talk through your arse. The controller knows too many shady deals involving many other bigshots. If we get him he would spill the beans and I would surely be transferred to the fisheries department in charge of buying ice blocks.
BPR: Then the Pegawai in charge of repairs?
Boss: He too knows too much. Talk to the driver. Tell him that we would charge him. I'll talk to the prosecutors to present a weak case and he would be acquitted. He would be suspended but his welfare be taken care of for life.
