Chitrakala: MIED scandal: Probe into former top MIC official

Contributed by Anonymous on Tuesday, March 03 @ 02:08:20 CST

KUALA LUMPUR: A former top MIC official and Maju Institute of Educational Development (MIED) cheque signatory is being investigated by police. A police source said at least two people who could have been involved in the disappearance of MIED funds had been identified.

Police are expected to question at least three people, including two top officials of the MIED and a senior politician.

Police have gone through every report lodged in connection with the alleged misappropriation of MIED funds.

The source said police had recovered RM1.7million, said to be part of the misappropriated RM5.2million, from the bank account of an official.
On Feb 22, MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said a top MIED official had been identified as being responsible for the missing RM5.26 million.

MIC vice-president Datuk S. Sothinathan, who is also MIED director, later lodged a police report over missing MIED files.

In December, Tan Sri M. Mahalingam, who was an MIED cheque signatory, was removed from his post as MIC treasurer-general.

Bukit Aman Commercial Crime division director Datuk Koh Hong Sun, when contacted, said he could not give details as the case was still under investigation.

MIED scandal: Police freeze bank account of institute's former chief By : Suganthi Suparmaniam
Chitrakala dares police to freeze Samy Vellu's account as well. KUALA LUMPUR: Police have frozen the bank accounts of former Maju Institute of Educational Development chief executive officer P. Chitrakala Vasu and her four children.

She disclosed this after a 31/2-hour meeting with the Dang Wangi police who recorded her statement on the tsunami funds raised by MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu and RM10 million given by the government to the MIC's Yayasan Pemulihan Sosial.

"I hope police will freeze Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu's bank account as well.

"Are they daring enough?" she asked at a press conference held at the Parliament cafeteria yesterday.
She said the police had not frozen her husband's account.

"But I don't know what would happen to his accounts over the next few days," she said.

Dressed in an orange kurta and blue jeans, the 38-year-old said she went to the Dang Wangi police on her own accord.

"I told them everything I know about the case.

"Tomorrow, I am going to the Kuala Lumpur police contingent headquarters to give my statement on the missing MIED files," she said.

"Once the police have finished their investigations with me, I will go to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission."

Chitrakala insisted that RM5.2 million was not missing from the MIED, as claimed by Samy Vellu.

She denied rumours that she was the official from whose personnel account police had recovered some "missing" money.

"As far as I know, I don't think so. You have to ask the police."

She refused to answer a question about her former aide, a man named Rama, who is also being investigated by police over the MIED issue.

"I don't know, you have to ask the police," she said of her former aide.

Chitrakala attributed political motives for the way she was removed as MIED chief executive officer.

She said MIED was worth RM1 billion.

Former CEO finds allies KLANG: Besieged Maju Institute of Educational Development chief executive officer P. Chitrakala Vasu has found allies in former MIC Klang division chief Alex Thiagarasan and PKR member of parliament N. Gobalakrishnan. Thiagarasan said nothing moved in the MIC and all its agencies without Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu's green light.

He said Samy Vellu usually got rid of people who no longer served his purpose, adding he himself was sacked for questioning him.

Thiagarasan was sacked from MIC after he lodged police reports against Samy Vellu over the Maika-Telekom shares scandal.

Meanwhile, Gobalakrishnan, the Padang Serai MP, said the MIED was the only good thing the party had done. "I will raise this matter in Parliament and will speak to the home minister about providing security for Chitrakala."
