Mahathir Tidak Menyedari Pembelian Kapal Selam?

Kita sering dimaklumkan bahawa kerajaan melaksanakan kerja berasaskan tanggungjawab bersama dan kabinet membuat keputusan dalam perkara yang penting membabitkan isu sensitif seperti pendidikan, pertahanan, keselamatan dalam negeri, dasar luar negara dan banyak lagi.

Hakikatnya, keputusan membabitkan perkara sebegini terlalu sensitif untuk digalas atas bahu seorang individu.

Pembelian kapal selam Scorpene daripada Perancis antara perkara penting kerana ia melibatkan soal keselamatan negara. Seperti perkara lain yang berada dalam kategori itu, ia melalui proses yang sama sehingga kontrak pembeliannya ditandatangani pada Jun 2002 selepas beberapa siri rundingan semenjak tahun 1995 dan tertangguh pada tahun 1997/98 akibat krisis kewangan Asia.

Pada ketika itu, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad dan Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi masih menjadi Perdana Menteri dan Timbalan Perdana Menteri. Tidakkah salah seorang daripada mereka mengetahui secara terperinci butiran perjanjian jual beli tersebut? Persoalannya mengapakah mereka seperti menutup mata dan buat macam tidak tahu apa-apa?

Sudah tentu rundingan pembelian dua kapal selam berkenaan sudah bermula lebih awal sebelum  perjanjiannya ditandatangani  pada Jun 2002. Pada ketika itu Timbalan Menteri Pertahanan telah memaklumkan Dewan Rakyat mengenai kontraknya apabila perkara itu dibangkitkan.

Bahkan timbalan menteri berkenaan telah memaklumkan Dewan Rakyat jumlah yang akan dibayar kepada syarikat Malaysia bukannya komisyen tetapi kos perkhidmatan, penyelenggaraan dan latihan.

Kedua-dua mereka iaitu Perdana Menteri dan Timbalan Perdana Menteri sebenarnya tahu dan menyedari apa yang berlaku. Begitu juga dengan Ahli Dewan Rakyat dan kabinet. Jadi ianya bukan rahsia, bukan setakat kabinet tetapi juga di dalam Dewan Rakyat meskipun ketika itu jumlah pembangkang tidak seramai sekarang.

Keadaan yang berlaku sekarang adalah  sebaliknya apabila pembelian kapal selam Scorpene seolah-olah dilakukan secara rahsia antara Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak dengan pihak Perancis.

Peliknya Najib telah diminta menjelaskan butiran pembeliannya seperti hanya beliau seorang sahaja yang tahu.

Bukankah kita boleh merujuk kepada dokumen yang direkodkan di Dewan Rakyat. Memang tidak dapat dinafikan minit mesyuarat kabinet dilindungi Akta Rahsia Rasmi (OSA), khususnya yang berkaitan dengan pertahanan dan keselamatan negara tetapi pastinya Perdana Menteri dan Timbalannya pada masa berkenaan (2002) boleh mendapatnya terus.

Ia amat penting untuk menjelas berhubung isu pembelian kapal selam ini kerana mempunyai implikasi kepada kes pembunuhan yang dikaitkan dengannya.

Sebelum ini pihak berkuasa Perancis telah membuktikan Altantuya Shaariibu tidak mempunyai hubungan langsung dengan rundingan kontrak. Malang sekali orang ramai tidak dimaklumkan maklumat penting ini. Sebab itu, pengkritik Najib membangkitkan isu ini dan mendesak penjelasan daripada beliau dan beranggapan bahawa perkara ini masih belum selesai.

    PARIS (Aug 1): Abdul Razak Baginda, an adviser who is closely linked to Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, has been charged here over alleged kickbacks in the purchase of Scorpene submarines, AFP reported.

    Quoting a judicial source, AFP reported that Razak Baginda was charged on July 18 with “active and passive complicity in corruption” and “misappropriation of corporate assets”.

    AFP reported that an investigation into the purchase of submarines by the Royal Malaysian Navy in 2002 was launched in 2010 following a complaint lodged by Malaysian rights group Suaram.

    As part of the deal French naval dockyards unit DCN agreed to pay 30 million euros to French defence group Thales’ Asian unit, Thales International Asia (Thint Asia).

    The investigation revealed that another company, Terasasi, whose main shareholder was Razak Baginda, received an equivalent sum for what was stated as consultancy work, but which investigators believe was really a front for kickbacks, AFP reported.

    Abdul Razak Baginda had advised Najib when he was defence minister between 2000 and 2008. It was during Najib’s tenure as defence minister that the Malaysian government paid nearly one billion euros (US$1.18 billion) to buy two Scorpene-class submarines and one Agosta-class submarine from DCN, which is linked to Thales.

    Four French defence industry executives have already been charged in connection with the Scorpene deal. They are two former chairmen of DCNI, Philippe Japiot and Dominique Castellan, and two former heads of Thint Asia, Bernard Baiocco and Jean-Paul Perrier. All four men have denied the charges, AFP reported.

    French investigators are also investigating allegations that 114 million euros were banked into a shell company called Perimekar, said to be based in Malaysia and controlled at that time by Razak Baginda’s wife.

    AFP reported that “the affair emerged spectacularly in 2006, when Abdul Razak’s Mongolian mistress — who was said to have demanded a payoff for working as a language translator in the deal — was shot dead and her body blown up with plastic explosives near Kuala Lumpur”.

    A Malaysian court had acquitted Abdul Razak of abetting the murder.
