SEMUA-NYA OK for Approved Parasites

This report shows how connected parties or cronies can get away with privileged deals.

It is quite surprising these people are not included in the list of Malaysia's richest citizens.

According to the report, the DPM mentions
“It was a legacy of old problems, a transition problem which needed to be resolved once and for all.

“There were cars that were already here because of some practices in respect to the importation of cars, whereby they (importers) just bring them in with the understanding that they would get APs,”

Very interesting indeed.
And such beautifully crafted language to cover a multitude of sins.

As taxpayers and voters we should ask what was the basis on which the importers simply brought in cars that they hoped to get APs later?

Seems they were just taking a business risk or were being plain greedy. Perhaps they did this once before and it worked well as some arrangements were made with the relevant parties.

We should not be taken to be fools with such eloquent terms but ask the DPM to shed more light on a matter of 3000 APs times market value of RM30k each or RM90000000.

Too bad this country always has a spin for every problem.

The importers were just being their normal selves and "just bringing" in the cookies so that someone will get a piece of the pie.

This is a great strategy and has worked before (and will work again in the future). After all, there is someone very high up to spin it all away.
