MACC probes Alstom allegations


The MACC has initiated an investigation into the allegations surrounding Alstom and its alleged link to Malaysia.

See the AFP report on MSN News.

Meanwhile, Swiss prosecutors have reportedly dropped documents on their website relating to their case against Alstom. They had earlier imposed a hefty fine on the firm

From the Singapore Straits Times:

PETALING JAYA (ASIA NEWS NETWORK/ THE STAR) – The Swiss prosecutors have removed from their official website an unendorsed document linking two Malaysians to corruption charges involving French company Alstom.

Former Perlis Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Pawanteh said his lawyer in Switzerland had affirmed the matter.

‘It was high time they removed the offending document because it is unjust to release such unverified information without giving those implicated a chance to be heard,’ he said.

Mr Abdul Hamid said the Swiss court had never summoned him to testify during the Alstom trial.

Abdul Hamid has denied receiving kickbacks. See this Star report.

Now the atrium of Komtar has been renovated.

Soon Blackberry Cake may be a heritage ‘angry food’ of Heritage Penang. I am mulling this one as an addition to the special category of Ori-Maestros of Angry This, Angry That. Remember Angry Bird?
I am smelling a business opportunity!
In the business of A&M, provocative advertising works wonders for brand owners. This may be true for Blackberry Cake of Komtar, Penang.
See me if anyone wants to brand Blackberry Cake with angry ingredients.

The Indian Muslim community used to be the pillars of the Penang society, but Komtar Ghani Jiman is an insult to all their contributions in the past and the ethical and social standards they established. The crude and uncouth behavior coupled by the effectively “attack …” type approach (Kek Tahi) is an indication that he is nothing more than (an) agitator of the state opposition and his job is to create ugliness and bile through any and all means in an attempt to diminish the state party and leaders in power. Clearly this chap is a victim of his own… Read more »

I fear another round of increase in hawker food prices, including Pasembur, Mee Goreng, Gandum, Nasi Kandar and Roti Canai. And not to leave out Teh Tarik and Kopi Tarik.
Will the non-halal hawker food also increase?
How I envy the ethereal Tham Chiak Kuis who enjoy free food (once a year) without the worries of food prices!
