Najib and Musa Aman's CASINO Plan

Sabah's PKR Director of Communications Ronnie Klassen has demanded the Chief Minister of SabahDatuk Musa Aman to come clean and explain the purported plans that a CASINO is on the cards in Prime Minister's Najib Tun Razak "Economic Transformation Plans(ETP)"




Musa Aman must explain to Malaysians in Sabah, "has the State Government of Sabah given the APPROVAL for the go-ahead of a Casino?". If Musa Aman has given the nod for this Casino,when and why was it approved?

During the ETP open day yesterday, the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) revealed that the government was considering building a 500-acre “eco-nature” resort in Sabah, as part of a concerted effort to push Malaysia onto the integrated resort (IR) bandwagon and that the option to build a casino is on the table for the Karambunai IR — alongside a mangrove centre, water theme park and waterfront properties — to ensure a higher return on investment (ROI).

“We want the Musa Aman Administration to come out clean and explain whether they have given any approval or are contemplating building a casino in Sabah. Even though there has been no official admission from the Barisan Nasional (BN) government, the facts allude to the strong case where a casino will be built, under the guise of ensuring a higher ROI. All points lead to the fact that a casino will be established. Can our honorable Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman confirm or deny this?” said Klassen

Klassen further stressed that the proposal to build a casino showed how the present government administration is intent on “popularizing gambling” in the country, barely months after the huge outcry over Tan Sri Vincent Tan’s abortive attempt to introduce football betting.

Local council state laws in Sabah,requires a company to apply for a "trading license" to do any form of business,and trading licenses are issued by the the respective District Councils,Municipal Councils or City Hall.The Federal Treasury through the approval from the Federal Cabinet may approve such a Casino license,but without the issuance of a trading licence, such a Casino will not be able to operate even with the approval from the Prime Minister himself, stresses Ronnie.

If the Federal Cabinet had tabled and approved a Casino in Sabah,that would imply that the Minister's from Sabah namely, Tan Sri Bernard Dompok,Datuk Maximus Ongkili, Datuk Shafie Apdal and Datuk Anifah Aman had given their consent.

Did these "honourable" Minister's take into account the social and moral implications,that would affect Sabahans,or where they blinded by greed? "We demand a full explanation from Musa Aman, where is the transparency,credibility and accountability which the UMNO/BN Government of Sabah being boasting all these while," said Ronnie.

The Pakatan Rakyat would never agree to a project that has social ills, and worst off bankrupt the people. "We will not allow,Ah Longs,illegal money lenders or bonafide banks a field day to destroy family's through gambling.As it is,the slot machine clubs in Sabah has brought disaster to many family's,many of which now suffered broken family's and debts all in the name of gambling," said Ronnie.

Perkara ini perlu disiasat terlebih dahulu.

Lisa said...

So far there is no confirm news yet about the plan to build casino in Sabah. So there is no need for us to make any speculation.

Unless proven, this is merely a rumor.

Pembinaan kasino ini masih dalam perancangan dan belum ada persetujuan.

supra said...

cerita mengenai pembinaan kasino di Karambunai masih belum pasti kebenarannya, sebelum ini timbul juga isu mengenai pembukaan kasino di Kundasang, tp rupanya tak ada pun kasino akan dibina di kawasan tersebut. lagipun, Karambunai Corp telah menafikan pernah menghantar cadangan rasmi kepada kerajaan Malaysia mahupun menulis dokumen bertulis dengan mana-mana pihak ketiga lain berkaitan dengan rancangan untuk membina kasino di Karambunai.

isu ini cuma khabar angin sahaja. Karambunai Corp telah menafikan pernah menghantar cadangan rasmi kepada kerajaan Malaysia mahupun menulis dokumen bertulis dengan mana-mana pihak ketiga lain berkaitan dengan rancangan untuk membina kasino di Karambunai.

the speculation that the government has allowed the construction of casinos in this state is a lie and reckless accusations..

martycruz said...

The Malaysian Insider should make an explanation about where the source of this information they get, since the government's explanations during the open day Economic Transformation Plan has never been mentioned about the establishment of casinos in these state.

kasino takkan dibina di Sabah, pihak Karambunai telah menafikan bahawa mereka akan membina kasino.

There must be something else more than this to explain. Another reason another story to tell. Leave it to the Leaders to decide as it might be a good idea to make a better change for the country.
