First, let's get back to my last post,
Jazlan should just kick out those vendors
Pay particular attention to this story by The Star dated Aug 3 which I highlighted,
Click on that link to read it.
If you are too lazy to click on it, at least read these excerpts which I picked for that post,
1. PETALING JAYA: Datasonic Group Bhd will take on the role as the main contractor for Malaysian passports, supplying the booklets as well as the datapages with microchips to the Immigration Department from Dec 1, 2016.
2. Over the past six months, Datasonic had secured RM802.53mil in contracts, mainly relating to the Immigration Department.
Okay, now let me tell you about some information that I got yesterday.
I was told by very reliable sources that Datasonic is going to produce all the passport booklets and their security microchips in China.
Yes, our passports are going to be wholly made in China.
I repeat again - MADE IN CHINA.
Malaysian passports are now and previously made locally and under the close supervision of the government.
This is important mostly because of security reasons.
If indeed Datasonic is to make the passports and their security microchips in China as I was told, how is the government going to continue to ensure no third party have access to the data contained in the passports, and those microchips?
And what are there to ensure that Malaysian passports are not going to be produced for lets say those who are using them for human trafficking and such?
These are made in China passports, okay.
I think you all know what they said about things made in China.
Bear in mind that Malaysian passports are perhaps the most valued in the world.
It allows you to enter all countries in the world except Israel.
Again, what prompted the government to allow Datasonic to take over from a provenly good contractor to do the job and doing it in such a manner which may compromise the security of the country and its citizens?
My sources told me that the whole thing involves very powerful people who by comparison makes Deputy Home Minister DS Nur Jazlan Mohamed whom I highlighted in the last post as nothing but a small fry.
I asked why PM DS Najib Razak is not doing anything about the whole thing.
This is the exact response from my sources,
"The PM is not aware of this matter. At least not yet."
That sounds ridiculous, but my sources insisted that it was true.
"If anyone wants to know why the PM is yet to know about this potential security breach, ask the KSN," my sources added.
KSN is Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Ali Hamsa.
Actually, I later on find that it's quite weird why my sources mentioned Ali Hamsa, despite later on saying the guy is also a small fry in the matter, similar to Jazlan.
Maybe I will ask them more about it when I meet them again.
And why didn't the newspapers highlight this matter?
If a lowly insignificant blogger like me can find out about it, surely they must have known too, right?
They should be asking those questions I asked above, I think.
"They are also already in the bag," said my sources.
I'm not really sure what my sources meant by that, but didn't ask for clarification. Not really important I think.
I just hope now that the PM will find out soon about this whole thing and stop it before it's too late.
As according to the report which I highlighted, Datasonic already secured about RM800 million contract to do the whole thing and will get another portion of about the same amount soon for some other similar jobs for the government.
That's RM1.6 billion of rakyat's money to be spent paying these people who are going to make our passports and its security microchips in China.
Do you all think that's good?
I don't think so.
Really, the currently long queues at the Immigration counters is not the biggest thing about the issue which Malaysians should worry about.
