Boy Racer for Chief Minister?                        
Wednesday, July 7th, 2010 GMT                        

As expensive as it gets


Bugatti buy-out plan



Sulaiman Abdul Rahman Taib wanted to buy out Bugatti, makers of the worlds most expensive cars, to add to the familys hundred  businesses, according to one of his close college friends.  However, his Dad, Abdul Taib Mahmud, described as Malaysian Monarchy by Rahmans pal, was less enthusiastic. The Chief Minister, who clearly controls the family purse strings, vetoed the plan.  It had taken Rahman a week to get an audience with his Dad in order to discuss the idea.

The disclosures about Rahman Taib (as he was known in the US) come in an on-line article for the Bugatti Review by Kevin C Limjoco, who was a college friend of Rahmans in San Francisco and a member of his fast set in the States.  Taibs younger son clearly acted the part of a multi-millionaire playboy during his period in San Francisco, according to this and other reports, and was a notorious fast car fanatic.  Conversely, business associates say he failed to show any business acumen when put in charge of the Taib property company in the US, Sakti International.



A playboy with violent passions

The article in the on-line Bugatti Review gives a telling insight into how the Taib family are regarded by onlookers abroad, namely as jett-setting multi-millionaires akin to Arab Princes or Sultans of Brunei.  On one occasion, it is known that in a fit of passion, young Rahman even smashed up one of his classic cars, a million dollar Bugatti, with a fire extinguisher.  However, his father clearly forgave the incident as he subsequently recalled his son to Sarawak, where he inherited his fathers seat in the Federal Parliament and was recently appointed Deputy Tourism Minister, a job he has now mysteriously abandoned.

Worryingly, there seems no recognition in Taib circles abroad that in fact the Chief Minister of Sarawak is merely a salaried employee of the State, on a modest income and subject to regular elections to office.  The concept of the Chief Minister as a Godfather figure behind a hundred businesses is even more disturbing, not least because it is undoubtedly true.


As the political figure in charge of governing Sarawak, Abdul Taib Mahmud has no right to be involved in business ventures, primarily because this would clash with his official duties and create conflicts of interest.  It is for this reason that Taib has always maintained the facade of a family active in business.  Now that we know that he is indeed in control of the money and keeps his family at his beck and call, he should openly declare his activities and publicise all his interests immediately.

A suitable successor?


Despite his playboy record, youthful Sulaiman Abdul Rahman Taib has often been touted as a likely successor to his ailing and aged father.  Thus, while Taib Mahmud has started to visibly crumble in the face of recent political failures and exposure for political corruption, the Taib political circles are clearly looking at immediate family to succeed, as if Sarawak were indeed a Monarchy to be passed from father to son, rather than a democratic state of Malaysia, which is its official status.  It is this attitude that is likely to turn a normal political handover into a succession crisis for Sarawak.

Read the full article by Kevin C Limjoco (a truly compelling read for Bugatti-lovers and residents of Sarawak) below:
Kevin C. Limjoco


IT ALL BEGAN AT A POSH ITALIAN CLOTHING boutique in Tiburon, Marin County, California. I was not shopping, but my friend was. He leaned over to me as we were browsing and asked: have you ever heard of a Bugatti EB110, lah? my eyes lit up and immediately said, yes, of course, the car is awesome but arent they nearly impossible to find? He simply smiled. It was the summer of 1994; my friend and I were juniors majoring in business at the University of San Francisco. His name is Datuk Sulaiman Rahman Taib.


He is part of the Malaysian Monarchy, his father was and still is the Chief Minister of Sarawak, and his family owns over 100 companies, ranging from Sarawak Securities to logging, hence, the reason he refers to me as lah or buddy.


He was the first person I knew that had personally owned a vast number of ultra exotic automobiles. People who did not know Rahman were perplexed and ultimately intimidated by him. He seemingly had a new car every couple of weeks, and had a dedicated car shop and storage facility, (Conversion Techniques owned by John Siao,) that catered to his every whim. He had everything from an old K-type Mercedes Benz worth over a million dollars, an SL Gullwing, Ferrari 355 spider, Rolls Royce Corniche, Maserati Kamsin, to a regular S500 Mercedes. He had so many cars that he would routinely send them off to his home in Sarawak to clear his garage of the clutter. Therefore, when he asked me whether I knew what a Bugatti EB 110 was, my palms started to moisten because I knew that Rahman takes his hobby very seriously. He has agents scour the globe looking for cars that he desires.




kesian rakyat sarawak...sepatutnya sarawak ni merupakan antara negeri yg paling kaya di Malaysia...tetapi di sebabkan monarchy taib mahmud, rakyat di zalimi, harta negeri di songlap....bodoh juga ye orang sarawak ni...

Where are the Answers?                       
Monday, July 5th, 2010 GMT                       

Nothing to say?



Over the past several days Sarawak Report has revealed a number of facts relating to the Taib Familys vast foreign property investments.  Our investigations have exposed a real estate portfolio worth hundreds of millions of US dollars in Canada, Australia and the United States and we have shown how they are owned and directed by Taibs own brothers and children.

However, so far, the Chief Minister has failed to respond to our allegations or to answer two questions, Where did the money come from? and How much of this property does he beneficially own?.

Indeed, the Chief Minister has made only one significant response to our well-documented exposes. This week he forbade all newspapers in Sarawak to publish news about the lavish riches enjoyed by himself and his family. Such an act merely shows the extent of his dilemma and his embarrassment.  Clearly he cannot deny the Taib family ownership of the properties in question, because it is all documented in official registries in different countries, which are available on-line to the public. He has therefore only silence and suppression to turn to in order to hide his embarrassment.

Struggling for Survival - Native People of Sarawak



This is a sign of weakness and failure in an old man.  Surely he knows that everyone in Kuching is talking about his greed? Does he plan to ban all conversations including the phrases Chief Minister and unexplained wealth in the same sentence?


Meanwhile, he continues to support the ill-treatment and attacks by logging companies and police against native peoples who are trying to protect their rightful lands from rapacious timber and plantation companies.  He is doing this even though the Malaysian Federal Courts have upheld that ownership of Native Customary Rights Lands cannot be removed by the State.

Why does Taib Mahmud always support the actions of the timber companies against his people?  Could it be because they are paying him in kickbacks and that this is how the Taib family afford their International Property Empire? He needs to reassure the world that this is not the case, but it seems he cannot.

Again Abdul Taib Mahmud needs to explain how he and his family came by their riches and he must reveal just how much of the Taib family property empire is owned and directly controlled by him.

ko fikir orang sabah merelakannya? it was shitty anwar/mahathir's idea. ada yang claim, anwar was the mastermind, tapi aku tetap kata both of then planned it well.

tapi apa leh buat. pemimpin2 tempatan pun tak bersatu masa tuh. so, senang la kena pijak bila BN menang.

at least, Taib Mahmud melanau. orang tempatan sarawak. KM sabah sekarang lak, keturunan pendatang paki. heh.

btw, aku tak penah tau rakyat sarawak terseksa. bila masa diorang terseksa? ko penah pegi sarawak ka? ko nampak dengan mata kapla sendiri ka?

ko hina2 sarawak, apa kata kamu rakyat semenanjung totok ignorant ini selesaikan dulu masalah racism antara melayu-cina-india kat semenanjung yang teruk tuh. baru bising2 pasal orang lain. bodoh2 sarawak (menurut kata kau), cina-melayu rilek je minum sama2 kat kedai kopi. bukan macam kat semenanjung. melayu asek berkepit ngan melayu. cina ngan cina. india ngan india. bosan nak mampos aku tengok hidup takde kesatuan.

ko amik dari mana ni? Malaysia Today eh? heh. kepada sapa2 pun penulis artikel ni: you care so much, you go help those penan people la (orang penan pun sang penulis tak kenal katanya. takat letak tajuk gamba "native people of sarawak"). bising2 on the net can do what? ramai jek nak jadik champion tulis blog kutuk gomen itu ini, tapi kalau diri sendiri kat atas, tah2 lebih teruk jadinya. macam obama. dok kat kerusi panas sekarang. dulu, before topple bush, kata macam2, janji2 macam. last2 bila jadik presiden, terus lupa diri lupa janji. hah.

amatlah keji perbuatan mencela sesama saudara islam...
tidak ada dosa mengumpul harta di dalam islam
malah umat islam disaran untuk mencari isi dunia seiring dengan akhirat
kenapa mengeluh apabila satu puak diberi kelebihan dan kurnia lebih dari puak yang lain
itu semua adalah qada dan qadar dari allah
apabila kita bersungut, mencela dan lebih buruk lagi jika diselitkan dgn sangkaan buruk, itu seakan kita tidak redha dgn ketentuan allah
itu sudah rezeki mereka, redhakanlah....

org sarawak selalu bngga mereka bersatu, cina dan kaum lain minum satu kedai
-ni sebab mereka takde majoriti, dan org cina pun suka kawin dgn kaum2 yg lain
-kat semenanjung ni halangan utama ialah agama! cmne org melayu nak makan masakan cina kalau bukan halal?
