Malaysian Politician Gets Free Disney Trip

Ex-Mentri Besar of Selangor Dr Khir Toyo spent almost RM1 million of state's monies for a Disney trip for his family

While other country's politicians can only boast of spending their people's money on watching porn, Malaysian politicians are at the top of the game with free Euro Disney trips for their family and friends!

It was revealed yesterday that Dr Khir spent almost RM1mil for a trip to France and Morocco with money "funded" by the state's development authority PNSB.

PNSB chief executive officer Datin Khairiyah Abu Hassan re-vealed this at the Special Select Committee on Competence, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) inquiry yesterday.

She said that among others, RM81,723 was spent on Dr Khir, RM366,000 on a recce team (sadly, no details here on who were on the recce team) which went earlier to prepare for the trip and RM2,300 for an economy class ticket for the maid.

PNSB also paid an additional RM9,000 for Dr Khir and his family’s accommodation during a four-day transit in Dubai.

The inquiry heard that PNSB paid RM750,000 for Dr Khir’s trip to the United Stated in December 2007, which included tickets to Orlando Disneyland.

An additional RM110,000 was spent on Dr Khir’s seven-night stay at a hotel suite in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Dr Khir's wife Datin Seri Zaharah Kechik was of course not to be outdone when she spent RM34,600 for a Hong Kong trip in March 2007 and RM88,388 for a trip to Tokyo in June 2007 all of which were also "funded" by PNSB.

Now is it any wonder why many are fighting tooth and nail for a position in the Supreme Council in UMNO? Once you are in all it takes is a bit more "luck" to be "selected" as the next Mentri Besar and then its LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL!

If only we have an anti-corruption agency in Malaysia which not only go after the the cows. Sigh... MACC why are you so silent on this??
