MCMC official told to enter defence over RM87,000 graft charges

The meetings court here today requested a Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) appointee chief to enter his protection on two tallies and one elective charge of defilement including RM87,000 over a telecom project.

Judge Rozina Ayob said the indictment had demonstrated an at first sight argument against Mohd Iskandar King.

The court fixed July 27 to 29 to hear the guard.

Iskandar was at first accused of one tally under Section 16(a)(B) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act and an elective charge under Section 165 of the Penal Code.

He was likewise accused of two further tallies under Section 165 of the Penal Code.

He is blamed for tolerating RM87,000 from an organization chief to help him secure a Universal Provisions Service contract.

An aggregate of 31 arraignment witnesses affirmed against Iskandar.

Attorneys Sivahnanthan Ragava and Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz addressed Iskandar, and delegate public investigators Siti Noor Hafizan Zakaria, Francine Cheryl Rajendram and Abdul Muntaqim Abdul Aziz showed up for the prosecution.On July 13, Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi eliminated the gathering’s races chief, the questionable Umno Supreme Council part Tajuddin Abdul Rahman, and supplanted him with Mohamad Hasan.

Zahid ought to have acted before, however it is presently dependent upon him and Mohamad to tidy up Umno and rehash the gathering into a multiracial element to allow it a battling opportunity in GE15.

Nonetheless, Umno pioneers resemble headless chickens. A few, including Ismail Sabri Yaakob and Hishammuddin Hussein, have acknowledged higher situations in the Perikatan Nasional government.

While the politicking goes on in Putrajaya, or in some Umno pioneer’s home, the rakyat is languishing. With Covid-19 contaminations actually seething, individuals are terrified. Many have been made jobless and destitute, many are starving and, more terrible, the quantity of passings has risen. The antibody program is difficultly sluggish. Clinical frontliners have been choked from telling the country how they are shy of assets and energy.

Umno allies should feel exceptionally frustrated. The gathering needs to overwhelm the public authority, however Muhyiddin Yassin will not permit it. Some Umno priests will not leave. Is this is on the grounds that they need to cling to control – and the advantages that accompany their posts?

In their prime, numerous Umno individuals neglected to see, or didn’t like to see, that their chief, and different individuals from the Umno world class then, at that point, were answerable for a few outrages and claimed monetary bad behavior. Some manhandled their force, they drained their situations for all they were worth.

Presently the nation is in strife, yet all the rakyat see are legislators competing to be in force, and leaving the country to endure. The NGOs are left to dole out guide.

Are the current forerunners in Umno quick to work on the gathering’s picture? Is the gathering wrapped up? It’s difficult, it won’t ever be pretty much as incredible as it used to be.

The pioneers have neglected to patch their methodologies, and change the framework, after the top was involved in progressive outrages. They should quit being troublesome and quit driving wedges among individuals. Umno government officials have blossomed with divisions dependent on racial manner of speaking and strict fanaticism, yet this should end. Will Zahid and Mohamad perceive this need?

Unfortunately, a considerable lot of Umno’s chiefs befuddle their gigantic consciences with initiative. The rakyat is more astute and not terrified of saying what should be said. These pioneers are as yet playing on the weaknesses of the Malays and Muslims. A couple of months prior, Zahid had said that if Umno wins GE15, the gathering will reinforce the shariah laws. The country is burnt out on such talk.

When will the pioneers comprehend that executing more shariah laws isn’t the solution to our weak economy, our inability to tidy up defilement, the climate or our ethical rot?

Take a gander at the harm done by a PAS menteri besar, whose activities prompted unpleasant competition between two networks. Take a gander at the disarray among some cake shops when they were informed that “Cheerful Christmas” couldn’t be frosted on their cakes.

The “dinosaurs” in Umno should be kicked out and the gathering made to find a place with the 21st century. The grassroots may need to compel the top to change, if the actual pioneers won’t tune in, or decline to do as such.

The gathering should shed the ceremonies, kow-towing and worshipful admiration of specific people present in Umno, PAS and Bersatu/PN. The revived party ought to be equivalent, truly.

Will any Umno pioneer be adequately intense to begin another account and forsake the governmental policy regarding minorities in society arrangements and the Ketuanan Melayu “malignancy” that have denied numerous Malays of their pride?

Whichever gathering rules, there should be a solid multiracial resistance to control the force and overabundances of the gathering in Putrajaya. Is there anybody in Umno who can lead the charge?
