Chitrakala: MIC leader: MIED executive a 'desperate person'

Samy Vellu
Bernama, Mar 01 2009 -- A veteran MIC leader today lashed out at a senior executive of the Maju Institute of Educational Development (MIED) saying that no amount of threats and personal attacks on him will deter him from ensuring that those responsible for the misappropriation of funds from the MIED be brought to justice.

"Let me say in no uncertain terms that those who are responsible for the misappropriation of funds of the MIED, will be brought to book," said the senior MIC politician, commenting on the police reports and allegations at a press conference by the senior executive of the party''s educational arm yesterday.

The senior MIED executive alleged that the senior MIC leader had misappropriated MIED funds, among other things. The executive lodged two police reports on the allegations at the Shah Alam state police headquarters yesterday morning.

Saying that he was not at all surprised by the allegations made by the MIED senior officer, the politican said the statements were that of "a desperate person, who was being investigated for criminal misappropriation of funds belonging to the Indian community".

Samy Vellu transferred funds? 10 min-->
By Carolyn Hong, Malaysia Bureau Chief Kuala Lumpur - A former top officer of the Malaysian Indian Congress' (MIC) education arm yesterday alleged that party president S. Samy Vellu had transferred RM2 million (S$833,000) from government funds to a MIC welfare foundation. Ms P. Chitrakala Vasu, who was asked to leave her post as chief executive of the Maju Institute of Education Development (MIED) last month, yesterday lodged a police report over the funds. She also lodged a report over her claim that 'lorry-loads' of files were removed from her former office. In her report, quoted by the Malaysian Insider website, she claimed Datuk Seri Samy Vellu had asked her to place RM2 million in a fixed deposit in the account of YPS, a party foundation controlled by MIC. Mr Samy Vellu, who was then Works Minister, was chairman of the YPS foundation, while Ms Chitrakala was the chief executive. Ms Chitrakala said the money was still in the fixed deposit when she left her job, but she was making the report in case it goes missing. Her reports were the latest development in an ongoing saga which blew up early this year when she was asked to show cause by Mr Samy Vellu over discrepancies in the MIED accounts. The MIC has set up a panel to investigate. It claimed RM5 million had been taken out from MIED's account. Ms Chitrakala said she had done nothing wrong, and claimed that her troubles started when Mr Samy Vellu wanted to sever MIED's ties with MIC. She claimed that this would enable him to control MIED even if he lost the MIC presidency.
