Syed Saddiq urged to explain meeting with ‘e-sports’ company
Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman has been urged to respond to allegations about the rationale for receiving a delegation from purported e-sports company Cleo International Sdn Bhd. In a statement today, Federal Territories PKR Youth deputy secretary Juliyus Allen alleged the company does not have a track record in the industry. He also alleged that Cleo International’s founder was a member of Syed Saddiq’s party.
“A minister meeting a company which is less than a week old raises questions on the criteria for a business to seek co-operation with the government. Moreover, the Companies Commission records showed that the company was offering transport and logistic services,” said Allen.
According to a report by Malay Mail, Cleo International was called Mideast Peak Sdn Bhd up until Oct 16. Mideast Peak was incorporated on December 2016.Allen also alleged that the company’s owner, Nur Fathiah Syazwana Shaharuddin, was a member of Bersatu’s Segambut division. Syed Saddiq is Bersatu’s youth wing head. “This situation will lead to negative perception on the ministry and is in conflict with Pakatan Harapan’s ideology,” he said. Allen said Nur Fathiah had wrote about her entry into Bersatu on her Instagram account, in which she posted a photographer of herself thanking “Kak Nikki” for the “warm welcome to Bersatu Segambut”.
The Instagram post also included a photograph of Nurthiah with Sharifah Zohra Jabeen, who was the central figure in the “Listen, listen, listen” incident back in December 2012. That Instagram post is no longer accessible.
In an immediate response, Syed Saddiq wrote on Twitter that the meeting did not result in the handing out of contracts or grants to Cleo International. “Integrity is the key,” he wrote. However, Syed Saddiq did not address Allen’s allegation regarding Cleo International’s relevance to the e-sports industry and whether the founder of the company was a Bersatu member.
cakap cakap : One last word about this budak belum bersunat! His time is done. How does he explain meeting the representative of a company incorporated just a week before their appointment with him? And more stupid…why did he allow that same company to have a video made of their meeting with him..only to have that company post the video on to the NET sharing said “incriminating” video with you, me, Mahathir and many many others.
Stupidity thy name is Syed Saddiq!
Zakir Naik is strike ONE. Threatening to wipe out DAP is strike TWO. This, my dear Saddiq, has to be strike THREE because the old man must, by now, be totally pissed with you! And I am not going to mention what that girl you are supposed to be going out with, is thinking about all these shenanigans!
As Confucius says “Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance” …and you Syed, is still to know the extent of your ignorance!
