<UPDATED WITH CHINESE TRANSLATION>
We call ourselves the TRUTHSEEKERS. We do not have any attachments with any party in question. We were simply intrigued with the fiasco surrounding Pusat Hemodialysis Mawar (PHM) in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan and decided to do some investigations. What we found out was shocking. We have decided to ask questions publicly because this matter is of public interest as it involves a hospital set up partially by the public on government land. We are not accusing anyone of anything. We hope the relevant authorities would be able to give the public answers to the question posed below together with attached evidences that we found. A link to the evidences provided at the end of this petition. We also hope that the public can view the evidences and start asking for answers to the questions themselves. Here we go:
A) BASIC INFO REGARDING ASSISTANCE GIVEN BY THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH
We found out that Pusat Hemodialysis Mawar is the top receiver for financial aids from MOH among the NGO circa 2011. Up until 2015, PHM had received financial aids as much as RM 18.14million in the form of financial aids, subsidies and grants.
In summary, RM 9 million was given to help PHM procure medical instrument for the hospital (Mawar Medical Center), RM 3.14million for dialysis center setup and dialysis instruments and the balance was in the form of dialysis treatment and medication subsidies (ie erythopoeitin) which was given on a continuous basis.
A SIMPLE QUESTION: Since PHM received so many subsidies, and they would be logically making around RM30-100 per dialysis session by charging the subsidising corporations and bodies (eg. JPA, SOCSO, BAITULMAL, etc.) they should be a profitable enterprise. SO WHY ARE THEY NOW IN A RM 30MILLION DEBT? WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE MONEY?
B) WHERE ARE THE EQUIPMENTS?
According to the financial aid agreement between PHM and MOH (2009), RM 4 million was allocated to PHM to buy 4 items namely : a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine, an ESWL External Lithotripter, an ESWL Internal Lithotripter and a Phaco machine.
Despite the money given by the government, PHM has also allegedly obtained bank loans for the same items. Was the bank tricked into approving a loan for something the government has already given money for?
And despite getting BOTH grant money from the government AND loan money from the bank, authorities are apparently UNABLE TO LOCATE SOME OF THE MACHINES!
So if the money was not used to buy some of the equipments, where did it go?
C) LOAN FOR WHITE ELEPHANT?
PHM had made loans with 2 banks namely HSBC (November 2011) and Affin Bank (June 2012) totalling RM 12 million.
How was this money used? Where did it go?
D) MAWAR MEDICARE MANAGEMENT SDN. BHD: A CONFLICT OF INTEREST?
We found out that in 2015-2016, a private company by the name of Mawar Medicare Management Sdn. Bhd. with the same business address as the hospital itself, and the directors allegedly being Datin Chua Lai Ping and her daughter Yeow Win Yean had tried to become the operator of PHM.
The question is why would the chairperson of PHM and her daughter approach PHM as a third party and wanted to become the operator of PHM? Isn’t there a conflict of interest there?
E) MULTIPLE UNEXPLAINED PERSONAL CHEQUES AND CASH PAYMENTS
Now things get a little interesting and downright scandalous, We unearthed a little information about a person named Wong Sien Loong. Wong was allegedly employed by PHM and his job was to cash in the money from the finance department to the bank daily. He was allegedly paid an allowance RM 750 monthly for this job. Besides that, he was also found to be the director of a few creditor companies of PHM namely V Chem Enterprise, VSI Renovation & Trading, Kei Yao Enterprise S/B and CL Fast Way Enterprise. From the proof gathered, he had allegedly taken about RM2.8 million in cash from PHM between February 2015 to October 2015. Other than that, apparently 2 cheques were issued to his uncle and elderly mother totalling a whopping RM950,000.
Cheques were also issued to a Mr Wilson Lee Choon Yung totalling RM150,000.
Other than the above cheques, we uncovered evidences of RM150,000 in cash allegedly given to Datin Chua Lay Ping in 2015, and another RM45,000 cash allegedly given to Wong Sien Loongwho received it on behalf of the late Dato Yeow Chai Thiam. Another RM100,000 cash was allegedly deposited into Datin Chua Lay Ping’s bank account by a Mr Henderic Koo.
Questions we need answers to are:
1) Why would PHM hire someone who is also the director of a few creditor companies linked to PHM and whose job is to bank in cash to the bank daily?
2) Why did PHM issued 2 cheques dated 17 may 2012 to Wong Sein Loong relatives, namely his uncle Lim Tau Foo (PBB cheque no. 126536) and his mother, Lim Siew Kim (PBB cheque no. 126535) RM 475,000 each? What kind of job have they done for PHM for them to be given that amount of money?
3) Why was no further action taken by the authorities after Wong Sein Loong came forward and did a press conference for Kwong Wah Yit Poh newspaper?
4) Who is Wilson Lee Choon Yung? He had allegedly received 3 cheques from PHM of RM 50,000 each on 31 December 2015 (PBB cheque no. 004395), 31 January 2016 (PBB cheque no 004396) and 29 February 2016 (PBB cheque no 004397). Why was he paid that amount of money?
5) Who allowed Datin Chua Lai Ping to allegedly take RM 50,000 in July 2015 and another RM 100,000 in August 2015 from PHM? Under what ground was she allegedly able to take PHM money?
6) Why was Wong Sein Loong allegedly allowed to take PHM money on behalf of Dato Yeow Chai Thiam on 2 separate occasions in August 2014 totalling RM 45,000?
7) Why did Mr Henderic Koo allegedly take RM100,000 in cash from PHM and deposit it into Datin Chua’s account in multiple transactions of rm10,000 each?
F) INCONSISTENCIES IN SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT FAVOURING CERTAIN PARTIES?
A settlement agreement was made between Mawar Associates (comprising of PHM, Datin Chua Lay Ping and Yeow Win Yean) and 23 creditors in August 2017. In the agreement, it was agreed upon that PHM and Mawar associate need to pay all the creditor a total amount of RM 650,000 whereby RM 200,000 is to be paid by PHM alone and the balance of RM 450,000 is to be paid by Mawar Associates.
What we found confusing was that:
In the agreement, it was stated that Aslirom S/B, Empatsempurna (M) S/B, Jazone Enterprise S/B, Nathill Station (M) S/B, Rumpun Tirai S/B and Usetacom S/B shares were transferred to Mawar Associates. However, upon further checking, PHM was never made the director or shareholder of the named companies despite its clearly mentioned in the agreement that mawar associate consist of 3 parties. Why PHM omitted out as the shareholder of those companies? Wouldn’t this mean that only Datin Chua and Yeow Win Yean has fully benefited?
In the confusing and inconsistent agreement, in the end PHM was allegedly made to pay the entire RM650,000 and not just the RM200,000 as written earlier.
Did any specific person enrich his or her own pockets from this lopsided agreement?
G) IS THE CURRENT AGREEMENT BETWEEN PHM AND INTELEK CERIA SDN BHD LEGAL AND VALID?
We managed to get hold of the Management and Operation Agreement between PHM and a third party namely Intelek Ceria S/B dated on 7 December 2018. Upon going through the agreement, we can’t help but ponder if the agreement is legal and valid, keeping in mind that PHM is an NGO. A few things we want to ask:
Why PHM council members need consent from the management company in order for them to change the member of the council?
Why the need for all the council members to be changed after 2 years and the replacement must be nominated by the management company? Why was the management company given such authority? One current member of the council is a representative of PENGARAH, JABATAN KESIHATAN NEGERI NEGERI SEMBILAN. According to this agreement, the management of Intelek Ceria Sdn Bhd would have the authority to remove and replace the state health department representative in 2 years. Does that seem right?
Why does PHM want to buy the land on behalf of the management company and transfer the title to the management company? The land belongs to the federal government and until now it’s intended for the use of a non profit hospital. Is this clause a loophole to enable the use of the land for other profitable purposes in the future?
Why PHM gave sole signatory power to the management company? Shouldn’t both parties have equal right of signatory power to maintain check and balance?
Why are council members not allowed to dispute the annual report prepared by the management company? And if such dispute arises, instead of reaching for a third party to recheck the report, both parties would only need to accept the report made by the management company.
PHM is a non-profit organisation. So, why are there mentioned of bonuses to be paid to the management company? This goes against the original MNA of PHM.
The only 5 properties owned by PHM has been written off as collaterals in this agreement. This means that PHM would most likely lose all the properties to a private company called Intelek Ceria Sdn. Bhd.
Dear rakyat, don’t you think we had enough of this fiasco? There is a already a petition going around asking for the state government to take over the dialysis centre and the hospital with around 15 thousand people who have signed. Someone has also put out a video with some valid questions regarding this fiasco. Now with the evidences that we have seen, we believe a thorough investigation by the authorities need to be done.
Currently the staff of PHM in Seremban are in a limbo with regards to their future. Many of them are young people with new families and children. Why should they be used as sacrificial lambs to enrich only certain individuals?
We urge all of you to sign this petition in support of a thorough investigation. We also urge as many people to lodge police reports for the relevant authorities namely PDRM and MACC to investigate this matter and be able to provide the answer to our questions.
We want to make it clear that we are not accusing anyone here. We are just asking questions based on the documents that we have seen. We want is truth, transparency and justice in the interest of the Rakyat of Negeri Sembilan.
please browse through, see for yourself and share the website as well after signing and sharing this petition.
