Corruption in sports ministry? KJ says everything above board

August 2, 2018

The former youth and sports minister says he is ready to explain to his successor all decisions made during his tenure.

PETALING JAYA: Former youth and sports minister Khairy Jamaluddin says he is ready to explain decisions made during his tenure after the new deputy minister Steven Sim highlighted alleged corruption in the ministry.

Speaking to reporters at the Dewan Rakyat, Khairy said every decision he made as minister was in accordance with the rules and procedures set by the finance ministry.

“We have responded to the Auditor-General’s Department for everything we were audited on.

“The corruption scandal involving a senior ministry official happened before I became minister and that case is already in court.”

Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman says they were political appointees who held leadership positions in Umno Youth.

KUALA LUMPUR: Nine members of the boards of directors of agencies under the youth and sports ministry have been sacked, says its minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.

He said they included chairmen and directors.

Those removed were from the Institute for Youth Research Malaysia (IYRES), National Sports Institute of Malaysia, Subang Golf Corporation and Stadium Corporation of Malaysia.

“I thank them for their services,” he told reporters in the Parliament lobby today.



Sports ministry among most corrupt, says deputy minister

Steven Sim says almost half of projects were given out without open tender.

KUALA LUMPUR: The Youth and Sports Ministry ranks among the top 10 most corrupt ministries due to weaknesses in the procurement and payment process, says its deputy minister Steven Sim, who revealed today that many contracts had been awarded without open tender.

He said that between 2016 and 2018, some RM357.80 million worth of projects, out of a total of RM777 million, were awarded via direct negotiations or restricted tenders.

“Even after the RM100 million scandal involving a senior officer in the ministry, it still carried out procurement without open tender,” Sim, who is deputy he said in the Parliament lobby, referring to the 2016 case involving a ministry official who was investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for allegedly embezzling RM107 million in public funds.

Sim said in 2017, the value of procurements made without an open tender came up to RM264.2 million, while those via open tender were worth RM173.7 million.

“Last year, the ministry, along with the MACC implemented the Corruption Risk Management (CRM) plan, but it was cancelled in May.

“We have since ordered the CRM to be re-introduced.”


In the MACC’s Public Service Corruption Report, the Ministry ranked eighth among 25 ministries at the time.
“The MACC has now ordered us to reinstate the programme and we will do so, as we are committed to a total revamp of the ministry,” he told a press conference in Parliament on Thursday.
