One of the most expensive "study tour" by Malaysian officials abroad



As reported by the Star.

Khir Toyo, entourage went on RM1.7mil holiday when MB

SHAH ALAM: Permodalan Negeri Selangor Bhd (PNSB) spent about RM1.7mil for former Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Khir Toyo, wife, children, their maid and the company’s official to tour France, Morocco and United States.

PNSB CEO Datin Khairiyah Abu Hassan, who testified before the Selangor State Assemblys Selcat Committee on Competency, Accountability and Transparency Wednesday, said the trips included two study tours to Disneyland in Paris and Orlando.

Close to RM1mil, including expenses for Dr Khir, his wife Datin Seri Zaharah Kechik, their three children, their maid and a groundlaying, was paid for the tour to Morocco and France.

The inquiry also heard that PNSB paid some RM750,000 for the trip to United States, which comprised RM110,000 in suites for Dr Khir and entrance tickets to Disneyland.

My Say - was the RM 1.7 million worth it?????

Not worth. They need more internal controls, more tightening of allowances. Just like the one i posted about MP in Britain getting almost 300k pounds of allowances for a second home.

Taxpayers money are not spent this way.
