Malaysia My Second Home programme under threat By MANJIT KAUR
KUALA LUMPUR: “Hanky-panky” by officers in a government department and unscrupulous agents are jeopardising efforts to promote the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme.
Our tourism minister said that:
“Unfortunately during this transition period (one year), some of the officers from a department did something which is not nice for me to say.
“But the mess has been cleaned up by the department, and we are working closely to ensure that such incidences do not occur again.
“A few officers from the department have been sacked for not following the stipulated rules and regulations on fixed deposits,”
What a laugh. Isn’t that a gov’men department and don’t we, the rakyat, have the right to demand for transparency? How can a statement like that be allowed to slide? Not nice to say so don’t say issit? Wahhh What has become of Malaysia?
