Sebelum ini, saya telah sertakan perutusan surat-menyurat di antara sebuah syarikat iaitu NSE Resources Corporation Sdn Bhd (NSERC) dan Dato’ Ser Najib Tun Razak yang meminitkan pertimbangan agar NSERC diberikan dana sebanyak RM100 juta untuk membiayai projek komersilnya.

Mengikut rekod NSERC sendiri, di dalam satu surat kepada Kerajaan Negeri Terengganu bertarikh 27 Januari 2014, selain dari dana awam berjumlah RM100 juta di bawah geran R&D yang dikelolakan Kementerian Sains, Teknologi & Inovasi (MOSTI), syarikat yang sama juga telah dianugerahkan satu lagi dana berasingan di bawah Skim Pembiayaan Teknologi Hijau (di bawah Kementerian Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air). Salinan surat dari NSERC kepada Unit Perancang Ekonomi Negeri (UPEN) mengenai perkara ini ada dilampirkan bersama.

Ini bermakna, sebuah syarikat swasta iaitu NSE Resources Corporation Sdn Bhd telah berjaya mendapat peruntukan dana awam sebanyak RM150 juta dari dua kementerian berbeza untuk mengusahakan projek komersilnya. Malah, jumlah RM150 juta ini melebihi dari kos projeknya yang dimaklumkan kepada MOSTI iaitu RM130 juta.

PKR de-facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim says he has decided to withdraw from the presidential race in the upcoming party election to avoid the risk of the party being deregistered by the Registrar of Societies (RoS).

Anwar, who is Permatang Pauh MP, said after discussing with his lawyers, they saw the risk of the party being deregistered in the event that he won the presidency and lost in his appeal against his sodomy conviction in the Federal Court.

The Court of Appeal had sentenced Anwar to five years’ jail for sodomy on March 7.
