Just told that MACC this morning charged the deputy CEO of Johor Port Mohamad Hanafiah Abu Mansor, 47 with corruption at the Session Court in Johor Baru..
Mohamad Hanafiah had allegedly demanded a kick-back of almost RM300,000 in an incident in 2009 and 2010.
He had pleaded not guilty.
I'm still waiting for the full report of this story.
Since the incident had allegedly happened in 2009 or 2010, that means the case is not related with Johor Port.
Mohamad Hanafiah was at that time with Iskandar Investment Bhd (IIB).
He was a senior vice-president and head of the IIB's operations at the Medini project.
At that time he was known as Ben Hanafiah.
This case therefore should have some relation with the rumblings in Johor at end of 2011.
To recap on what had happened, here are some old postings by my friend Ai when she was the operator of the blog BigCat,
No scapegoat please in Iskandar Investment case
The big fishes are not just in the south la
The good people of IIB and some questions
A little chirpy bird and the IIB-gate
A daring flying squirrel
It's been almost two years now.
Ai's argument was that this case should be investigated all the way up to the Khazanah's board of directors at that time.
Let's see if it's really a crackdown all the way to the top or just ending everything with a whimper.
