Tender was through direct negotiations ( claiming for security reasons ). There are many foreign illegals working at this site who claim not to have been paid salaries for many months by their employers, the main contractor says it pays the sub-contractor and its not their responsibility.
When this happens the work will slow down and cause the price tag to increase further for construction.Can you imagine illegals working on a palace construction site right under the authorities nose in the capital of Malaysia, how is this possible?
Well in Malaysia we have a saying, Malaysia Boleh ! meaning anything is possible here. Mind you, Malaysia has been given a seat in the UN as a human rights member country. Yes ironic as it may seem, our politicians have a way of making " the clock tok" ( that's what the German Military say when interrogating British prisoners of war ).
The only country Malaysia has a problem dealing with is Singapore. Any guess why? I am not insulting my country but instead frustrated with the ways of the BN government and its cronies.
If change does not come, there will be no Vision 2020 or 1Malaysia.
