ACA aje...

Maybe, just maybe, this is why we need an independent ACA, one that will act without fear or favour, just like in the case of match-fixing involving footballers.

Whether they are current internationals, ex-internationals, water-carriers, windshield wipers or playmakers, is immaterial.

ACA: Azalina only acted as patron


PETALING JAYA: The Anti-Corruption Agency's (ACA) investigations show that Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said only acted as the patron of the Women’s Sports and Fitness Foundation Malaysia, and was not involved in the expenditure matters of the foundation.

In a statement issued Friday, the agency stated that it started immediate investigations following several press reports, checked all related documents, and interviewed several staff of the foundation.

“On the RM1.4mil expenditure, the auditor had translated “persembahan” (performances) as entertainment, whereby in the context meant the opening and closing ceremony of the National Women Sports,” the statement added.

An English daily had reported that the foundation, in its annual report, had stated that their expenditures included RM2.1mil for meals and accommodation, RM710,000 for printing and stationery, RM242,000 for volunteers’ allowances, RM1.4mil for entertainment and RM858,000 for travelling and transportation.

As I said in a previous comment, you can rest assured that the ACA will end up finding nothing wrong after having gone through everything......
It was the same with Le Tour de Langkawi 2007 accounts in which there was surely some serious irregularities conducted by the long, long, long serving MNCF president Abu Samah and his string of machais. ACA went in, and NOTHING. The same again here. When normal people or journalists like us can see what is happening so blatantly, I wonder why ACA hardly ever finds anything wrong.
ACA = Aku Cari Apa?????????

Mr. Anonymous, crooks are synonymous with Malaysian sports. You will find few, and even fewer politicians, who will go into sports sincerely and without hidden agendas.
While some shuffle quite well between making a gain and ensuring the well-being of their sport, others just remain doggedly loyal to the former.
But surely, you can rest assured that the crooks will always come up with new ways and means to trick the system and all of us.
Uncovering their tricks and bringing it all out into the open, only serves to make them wiser. They'll come up with a better trick the next time.
