Malaysia Today & Tomorrow :: The MayBan Bumi Required Fiasco II


Many may have thought that the MayBan/AmBan fiasco is over but is it?

According to a Utusan report, there are some who would like to see the regulation retained.

The PM and the DPM (check out these two Malaysiakini reports :: Najib reprimands Maybank over race policy and PM: Bank acted on its own) may have more or less ordered MayBan/AmBan to remove the said regulations but there are these magnificent seven, all from UMNO, who disagree with the two of them.
1.Naib Presiden UMNO, Datuk Seri Mohd. Ali Rustam berkata, usaha Maybank itu seharusnya diteruskan kerana ia bertujuan untuk membantu bumiputera.

"Niat Maybank baik, seharusnya isu itu hanya dibincangkan di luar sahaja tetapi telah dibawa masuk ke Kabinet dan keputusan sudah diputuskan."


2.Pengerusi Biro Pengaduan Awam Pemuda UMNO, Datuk Subahan Kamal berkata, syarat baru Maybank itu tidak harus dipertikaikan mana-mana pihak kerana ia jelas mempertahankan hak Melayu.

"Sepatutnya isu ini tidak timbul. Kita rasa janggal bila ia diperkatakan oleh banyak pihak termasuk dibawa ke Kabinet.

Mengapa tidak lihat perkara ini sebagai satu usaha menggalakkan perkembangan orang Melayu sendiri yang hak mereka semakin hilang?" katanya.

3.Pengerusi Gagasan Badan Ekonomi Melayu (Gabem), Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik berkata, Maybank sebenarnya telah memulakan langkah patriotik yang harus dicontohi oleh institusi-institusi perbankan lain.

"Niat baik bank itu untuk mewujudkan perkongsian pintar antara bumiputera dan bukan bumiputera telah disalah tafsir oleh pihak-pihak yang tidak bertanggungjawab.

Syarat baru bank itu berhubung ekuiti panel peguam boleh memperbetulkan kedudukan bumiputera sendiri di samping membantu kemajuan negara," katanya.

Beliau menambah, langkah bank itu turut dilihat dapat meningkatkan taraf ekonomi bumiputera yang agak rendah jika dibandingkan dengan kaum-kaum lain.

4.Ketua Penerangan UMNO, Tan Sri Muhammad Muhd. Taib berkata, beliau tidak faham mengapa ada pihak yang memandang serong usaha Maybank itu.

"Ini hak dan urusan Maybank yang jelas ingin membantu bumiputera dalam aspek-aspek berkaitan.

Mengapa tidak ada pihak yang mempersoalkan institusi kewangan lain yang terang-terang tidak pernah membantu bumiputera?" ujarnya.

5.Ahli MT UMNO, Datuk Seri Abdul Aziz Shamsuddin pula berpendapat, langkah Maybank itu menguntungkan orang Melayu.

"Maybank memberi perkhidmatan terbaiknya tetapi pada masa yang sama ia tidak melupakan hak kaum lain di negara ini.

Seharusnya semua pihak memberi sokongan kepada mereka (Maybank) kerana dengan terang ia menyokong hak bumiputera dengan tidak mengusik keperluan bangsa lain," jelasnya.

6.Pengerusi Biro Ekonomi Pemuda, Datuk Reezal Merican Naina Merican berkata, keputusan Maybank itu dilihat trend sebenar globalisasi serta pasaran terbuka melalui penggabungan kemahiran dan pengetahuan.

7.Ketua Pergerakan Puteri UMNO, Datuk Noraini Ahmad berkata, langkah Maybank itu perlu untuk memastikan tiada syarikat yang akan memperkecilkan kemampuan bumiputera.

"Ia tidak ada kena mengena dengan isu perkauman sebaliknya membuka seluas-luasnya peluang kepada bumiputera untuk terus ke hadapan," katanya.


My BM knowledge does not allow me to make a proper translation, so i have more or less copied what the Utusan has to say in its report. Interesting reasons have been provided to continue with the said regulation. In the face of opposition by these UMNO magnificent seven, will the PM and DPM next insist that MayBan/AmBan revert to their previous state of affairs or do what they like. Check this Berita Harian report :: Hak Maybank perkenal peraturan baru: Abdullah. Why not be better and insist instead that law firms keen to be on their panel have no more than 50% non-bumis!

Berita Harian also carried a report regarding those who are against MayBan's withdrawal :: 'Tindakan bank pelihara kepentingan Bumiputera'

In this report, Gagasan Badan Ekonomi Melayu (Gabem)chairperson, one Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik, said ::
"Kita tidak boleh membina masa depan Malaysia dengan pendekatan, sesiapa cepat dan cekap, dia dapat. Kita perlu sedar bahawa orang Melayu atau Bumiputera negara ini mewakili 62 peratus populasi penduduk, tetapi hanya menguasai 18 peratus sektor korporat.

"Apa yang dilakukan Maybank wajar dalam memperbetulkan keadaan tidak seimbang itu," katanya.


Once again you will have to go figure out for yourself what the Gabem chair is saying.
