MACC report made mentioning Dino Rais

It was made to understand an MACC report was lodged against Desmond Looh and Magic Telecom Sdn. Bhd. in the process of Numix Engineering Sdn. Bhd. acquiring 700MHz CDMA license from MCMC. Sources said the report was lodge by Numix Engineering Director Abdul Razak Mohd. Noor in MACC HQ Putrajaya.

It was said that the name ‘Dino b. Rais’ was mentioned in the report.

It was believed that stated somewhere in the report, monies were paid to Magic Telecom Sdn. Bhd. which include a sum not really specified and Desmond Looh, who had been alleged to be very close to Dino. Dino is the son of Minister of Information, Communications and Culture Dato’ Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim, Ph.D.

A different source explained that most probably Razak filed the report to protect himself since he was sued by Dino for defamation on a demand letter dated 2 November 2010, the same day the latter sued The Malay Mail and The News Straits Times for the report “Dino’s Son in Telco Suit” appeared on the cover of the ‘Paper that cares’. It was about Razak, Aishah Harun, Numix Engineering Sdn. Bhd. filing an injunction against Desmond Looh, Magic Telecom Sdn. Bhd. and Sejahtera Saluran Sdn. Bhd. at the Kuala Lumpur High Court on 22 October 2010.

It was said in the report, Razak alleged that a former Kuwait Finance House senior officer knew “Desmond Looh was very close to Dato’ Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim and an old friend of Desmond Looh’s father” and Looh was taken in on the newly formed Magic Telecom Sdn. Bhd.on the premise that:

1. He had sound financial standing

2. He was close to Dato’ Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim and showed the sms exhanges between the both of them to substantiate the claim

3. The closeness will enable the acquisition of the said CDMA spectrum license and all the licenses related to the venture

4. Looh also made a representation that Dino Rais is “To be employed in Magic Telecoms for technical and corporate exposure”

A company named Retroline Sdn. Bhd. was formed for the purpose of payment made to Dino Rais and he shall use the pseudonym of “Rahim Razlan” to cover his identity whilst under the payroll of Magic Telecoms. A detailed of list cheques paid to Dino and dates was believed to be furnished in the report to MACC. Dino was also sent to Chengdu, China 12-16 April 2010.

This MACC report corroborated earlier articles in the blogs insinuating that Rais’s son was involved the acquisition of certain spectrum licenses issued by MCMC, first raised on 8 October 2010. Rocky Bru picked some of these postings into his “Santa Rais” article posted on 9 October 2010, of which Rais reacted by lodging a Police report against Datuk Ahirudin “Rocky” Attan on 12 October 2010. MCMC was very swift in their investigations where the Police was asked by MCMC to confiscate his Acer “Ferrari” Notebook and Streamyx modem from his Puchong home, just 24 hours after the Police report was lodged in IPD Dang Wangi.

This episode attracted mainstream and new media attention to a point that Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak made a remark “Terkilan” to what has developed by Monday 18 October 2010. The ‘Pandora’s Box’ on MCMC was further opened when issues serrounding the authority and utilisation of USP Funds was raised even in Parliament.

It was raised in public domain that Rais as the complainant, instructed the MCMC IO to call the suspect in the investigation Datuk Ahirudin Attan and Yours Truly (as the prosecution witness if and when the case goes to court) “To meet up for tea”. It was also made to understand that MCMC IO only took the statement of the complainant about two weeks ago, which is a month after Datuk Ahirudin was interviewed and had his statement taken. This is also should be a specific subject for MACC to investigate.

For the record, mainstream media already reported that MACC has also initiated investigation on the utilisation of the USP Funds, particularly in the 123, 000 units issued in the Phase 1 of the  ‘1 Malaysia Netbook’ program under the National Broadband Initiative.

It gets more interesting on how a case which could go unnoticed as a dispute between Razak and Looh was actually able to be resolved privately without this much attention had Rais did not react against Rocky. We believe this could only go more ugly as Razak’s, Aishah’s and Numix Engineering’s case against Looh, Magic Telecom and Sejahtera Selalu goes on hearing on 3 Dec 2010. Hopefully, some of the materials to be presented in the hearing were included in the MACC report to fully facilitate the investigation.

As Sherlock Holmes would say at this point, “The game’s a foot”.

  1. Padan muka ekau Rais Sotong. Peel tak berubah. Baik orang tak tau. Skrg satu dunia dah dapek detail.

  2. Bukan Desmon ni ke yg buat programme komputer ODASAJA ngan KWSP dulu tu back 1990’s? anybody got info on this?

    • Interesting question to a possible connection. I don’t remember him, but I certainly remember ODASAJA – dia ada service `AutaSaja’ untuk buat pengeluaran tipu tanpa beli komputer.

  3. […] Zakhir Mohamad seems to know a lot of more details then anyone else. Read his latest posting MACC report made mentioning Dino Rais. […]

  4. Salams Tuan,

    Nama Rahim Razlan kuno la.Silap besar tak guna nama DINO yang glamour n Ori lagi original tu.

    wawa

    • Betul, betul. Ataupun pakai lah `Enzo Ferrari’ ke, baru lah sesuai dengan status. Takpe lah, Rahim Razlan pun. Mujur dia tak pakai `filem Cathay Keris’ punya nama, macam `Kulop Jelebu’, `Hitam Chombi’. Kalau takut terlupa, modify lah sikit yang familiar – Rais Piatu ke.

  5. Congrats Zakhir and Rocky. Your persistence pay off.
    Serves Rais right.
    Now is the tine for Najib to throw him out.
    UMNO can no longer afford to have this excess baggage in view of the coming GE.
    Rais and wife (who acts like second lady) are like albatross around the neck of UMNO.
    Berkuburlah ekau kali ni Rais. Takkan nak bakar jambatan duo kali.
    P.S. Oh namenya Rahim Razlan. Baru ni tau.
    Asyik panggil nama glamour Dino. Masuk mahkamah cerai binipun pakai nama Dino.
    Yaah bapa ala Dean Martin, mak Doris Day.

    • Laa, mati-mati aku ingat bini Rais Yatim ni asal dari Venice. Paling tidak pun, orang Milan. Tapi tak apalah – barangkali dia ni hebat betul jadi goalkeeper kot, sempena yang sebangsa, senegara – Dino Zoff.

  6. Ini semua mengingatkan kita kisah `jenaka’ mengenai penjaga Lubang Neraka:

    Malaikat A yang ditugaskan menjaga Lubang Neraka orang bukan Islam/Bukan Melayu bertanyakan kepada Malaikat B yang ditugaskan menjaga Lubang Neraka Orang Melayu kenapa beliau nampak relaks dan tak payah buat kerja untuk pastikan penghuni Lubang Neraka beliau tidak dapat naik dan keluar dari Lubang Neraka A.

    Jawab Malaikat B, sebab Lubang Neraka B adalah orang orang Melayu. Dia tak perlu bekerja keras nak halang penghuni naik dan keluar dari lubang neraka sebab mereka akan berlumba-lumba sesama sendiri menarik turun mana-mana penghuni Melayu ke bawah lubang neraka. Semuanya `selamat’ dok di bawah lubang neraka tanpa perlu `kuasa’ lain menarik mereka turun.

    Ambillah iktibar dari kesah neraka ni….Melayu bunuh Melayu…itulah hakikat. Belajar sejarah, tapi tak pakai otak…

  7. I thought Dino was short for dinosaur.

  8. Kan ado perpatah Melayu……sepandai pandai tupai melompat ahkirnya jatuh ke bumi juga. Kan dah malu orang Jelebu. Ayah den pun jugo berasar dari Petaling, Jelebu. Malu den….malu den. Kau Rais bijak pandai sebagai orang lawyer, tapi tenteng urusan berniago ini, kau kuring bijak agak nyo.

    • “Rais bijak pandai sebagai orang lawyer”… Tak tahulah, tapi saya rasa dia ni tak ada outstanding atau excellent dalam bidang ni. Kalau setakat ada Ph.D, saya rasa ini cuma kertas aje. Yang lebih penting ialah “penggunaan ilmu”.

  9. Regarding this particular matter, last Oct 10, Rais Yatim had ANGRILY (muka masam, macam nak telan orang) replied, “It is character assassination”. He denied his son’s company was one of the beneficiaries of his ministry’s RM1 billion grant. Razak in this blog post says otherwise. Both can’t be right, so SOMEONE IS A LIAR, PENIPU, CHIS! Soalan Bonanza: “Siapakah penipu itu?”

  10. korang taktau paper better diam la..ni sumer laporan bagi sebelah pihak…kalo taktau paper better tggu dan lihat apa yang akan terjadi.so tak payahla nak provoc kat blog ni nak mention2 yang tu bgus or sini bgus…

  11. ermm..mcm gini la kompani melayu..bukan melayu nak jatuhkan melayu tapi bangsa melayu sendiri yg tak pandai nak jaga melayu…please cherish our race..

    • Tahu tak kami boleh baca IP commenter?

      Kenapa tuko handle. Pakai sajalah Pujangga Sepi!

    • Yes, yes I agree. Like how Hasan Skodeng was charged in court by monkeys in suits who couldn’t even comprehend harmless satire.

      At the same time, the Melayu that we are to cherish were looting billions – awarding contracts and making purchases at bloated figures at Internet. Depan orang defend semua ni dengan guna modal “Untuk yang berpendapatan rendah… to close the digital divide… Concerned dan mulia betul hati kami, dok tolong orang Melayu dapat access Internet.”

      Tak sabar dan gelojoh, rakus betul tikus-tikus MCMC our race ni – netbook cikai yang RM500 dia bayar RM835. Syok betul kongsi kickback RM335 dengan vendor, ye. Ini lah jenis Melayu yang jual, bagi bangsa jadi hina; yang buat rakyat benci Umno.

      P/S: Kepada MCMC yang curang – bila kah aku akan dapat laptop pearl white… dan 4 orang anak yang layak?

  12. ni ker melayu??nampak sangat blog ni untuk sebelah pihak….baru jer post dah kena delete…erkkk

    • Dah bersedia ke untuk kehidupan dalam penjara Kajang? Lebih baik biasakan diri mulai sekarang… beli lah tray plastik, guna untuk makan. Bila minum teh-o, toksah bubuh gula…nanti kat dalam jail memang rasa cam tu lah.

      Oh, ye – kat sana ramai geng mat leather king. Nanti bila diorang panggil enko Angelina Jolie, camana nak respond?

  13. Is this part of the Blogger Elit?

    • Tak tahu lah pulak. Label ini bukan ukurtara kami pun. Penerimaan penulisan blog adalah lebih penting.

      Kami tak klassifikasikan diri sendiri. Orang lain yang buat. Terutama kesan penulisan kami dapat merubah keadaan.

      Sau lagi ukurtara ialah apabila media arus perdana pun membuat rujukan kepada penulisan dari blog kami.
