Lembah Pantai MP AND PKR Vice President Nurul Izzah Anwar’s defective radar systems and poor information gathering about to land her in the same spot she continuously gets herself over and over again into; her foot in her poisonous big mouth. Together, rogue news portal Malaysiakini which perpetuated Nurul’s lies.
Her charge that Advanced Air Traffic System Sdn. Bhd. (AAT) is the joint venture company between Selex Sistemi Integrati SpA (SELEX) and Tirai Variasi Sdn. Bhd. is defective. She also claimed that AAT secured a RM 128 million or Euro 26 million contract for SELEX via direct negotiations, which is not true either. SELEX did get the RM128.4 million contract was awarded by the Federal Government to SELEX in 2009 and not to AAT as reported.
SELEX was the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for the original system that was installed in 1994. This project is an upgraded project and therefore needed to use the same system and the same OEM. The RM128.4 million contract was not solely to install Air Traffic Control system in Subang. The contract is for upgrading works for radar and system covering many airports in Semenanjung Malaysia and airports in Sabah and Sarawak. AAT was one of many Malaysian vendors supporting this project.
In a statement of clarification, AAT was never involved in the contract negotiation between SELEX and Federal Government. AAT’s role is to provide installation works and technical assistance for the project. The value of AAT’s contract is approximately RM9 million over 3 years period from 2009 to 2012, which effectively is RM 3 million per annum.
In the Malaysiakini report, it stated that AAT was formed in 1994 “With the aim of know-how and technology transfer to Malaysia, especially in the air traffic control systems field”. The report is actually an addendum of the manipulation of facts by Nurul and her cohort of consistently lying PKR colleagues, is designed to rubbish former Ambassador to the United States of America Dato’ Seri Dr Jamaluddin Jarjis via his son Ikhwan Hafiz Jamaluddin.
Fact is that Ikhwan Hafiz, 25, sits in the board of AAT. However in 2009 when Federal Government awarded the RM 128 million to SELEX, it is most likely that Ikhwan Nasir was still slogging buried into his books and laboratory experiment reports as a student in highly regarded world renown London Imperial College of Science and Technology. He could not have been a party to ‘any direct negotiations’ between SELEX and the Federal Government, with or without AAT’s involvement because he had not come onboard the latter yet.
This is typical of politically bankrupt cohort of PKR lying politicians, where Nurul has her fair share in committing a blatant lie against the Malaysian Armed Forces based on a reply in Parliament which has been taken totally out of context and manipulated. The Lembah Pantai MP’s statement to Jakarta-based Kompass on 5 August 2010 claimed that the Perdana Menteri Class Scorpene submarines are defective and unable to dive. It was proven wrong not only with several diving missions carrying His Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong and HRH Sultan of Selangor, but also DAP Secretary General and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng on his dive onboard KD Tun Razak 50 nautical miles west of Langkawi on 9 December 2011.
It is clear that PKR Vice President Nurul and the cohort of political liars needed to have ‘dramas’, to make them politically relevant and trying to deflect the attention from the reality that truly they are politically-bankrupt elected representatives who failed to serve their consitutuencies.
