(On The Topic: Whistleblowers Revisited – How Effective Has the Enforcement of the Whistleblower Protection Act 2010(WPA) Been in Malaysia?)

It gives me pleasure to speak to you today at this 4th Annual Corporate Governance Summit organised here in Kuala Lumpur. I have been asked to speak on the issue of the Whistleblowers Protection Act 2010 (or “WPA”) which was passed by the federal Parliament and has been in force in Malaysia since December 2010.

Shocking RM2.52 Billion Losses In 2011 Suffered By MAS Marks A Spiralling Dive Of No Return For Our National Carrier Unless Failed Policies Are Replaced With Professional Management, Results-Oriented Work Ethic And A New Business Model Based On Competency, Accountability and Transparency(CAT)

Malaysia would not go bankrupt if PR abolish the NSEW and Penang Bridge toll should we win the next general elections. Malaysia would go bankrupt because of corruption, abuse of power and cronyism.
