And now... about Balkis' accounts

Apparently Balkis' accounts had not been finalised before its funds were transferred out.

The external auditors for the Wives of Selangor Assemblymen and MPs Welfare and Charity Organisation (Balkis) said yesterday they were not consulted before the body transferred its RM9.9mil funds.

Yee Choon Kong & Co principal Yee Choon Kong said the firm was never consulted by Balkis president Datin Seri Zahrah Kechik, its executive committee members or former Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo prior to the transfer.

He said the organisation’s financial statements remained unaudited till now and the firm had not issued a signed Audit Report on Balkis’ conduct and financial affairs for the financial year ending Dec 31, 2007.

“My firm had on a number of occasions called the organisation’s treasurer Datin Suraimi Sapuan to send the financial records including bank statements, official receipt books, payment vouchers, supporting documents, fixed deposit receipts, minutes of meetings and the details of membership and subscription for 2007,” he said in a statement yesterday.

He said Balkis ignored the requests, adding that contrary to press reports, the accounts had not been finalised before the funds were transferred out.

Yee was commenting on a recent statement by Dr Khir that Balkis had consulted its auditors and legal advisors before transferring the funds to the Association of Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti) and there was no “hanky panky” involved.

It is believed that if a person alters his facial look, he also changes his personality. This must be what is happening to Mohd. Khir Toyo. He keeps coming out with refutable statements.

This is what Malay supremacy means as defined by wikipedia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ketuanan_Melayu


"Ketuanan Melayu (Malay for Malay supremacy or Malay dominance[1]) is the racialist belief that the Malay people are the "tuan" (masters) of Malaysia.

The Malaysian Chinese and Indian-Malaysians who form a significant minority in Malaysia, are considered beholden to the Malays for granting them citizenship in return for special privileges as set out in Article 153 of the Constitution of Malaysia.

This quid pro quo arrangement is usually referred to as the Malaysian social contract.

The concept of ketuanan Melayu is usually referenced by politicians, particularly those from the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), the most influential political party in Malaysia.

Mengapa mereka begitu kemaruk dengan wang kebajikan tersebut?

Mengapa mereka tidak dapat akur dengan semangat bermuafakat untuk membenarkan isteri-isteri Pakatan Rakyat bersama-sama meneruskan segala kerja kebajikan yang mereka lakukan sebelum ini?

Mengapa mempunyai perasaan buruk sangka?

Maybe the money in the kitty all gone - spent on their trips to Europe and overseas trips.

The transfer of funds to Bakti is morally wrong and devoid of any accountability.

It is a breach of trust. We have had enough and it is for these reasons kicked them out.
