Explain 'bankrupt' heading foundation, Jamal tells Azmin

Sungai Besar Umno chairperson Jamal Md Yunos has questioned the reason an alleged bankrupt has been appointed to head a Selangor foundation.
At a press conference in Shah Alam this afternoon, he demanded an explanation from Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali regarding the status of Yayasan Warisan Anak Selangor (Yawas) general manager Kamsani Nasir.
Azmin is the foundation's board of trustees chairperson.
"The menteri besar has to explain why someone who is bankrupt is in charge of a state foundation that handles hundreds of millions of state funds," said Jamal, who provided documents from the Insolvency Department to back his allegation.
A check by Malaysiakini verified that an individual named Kamsani Nasir was declared bankrupt by the Insolvency Department. The bankruptcy order was made in 2008.
Malaysiakini is attempting to contact Kamsani for response.
Kamsani was appointed as Yawas general manager on Sept 1, 2016. He had previously served as the chief operating officer of Skim Mesra Usia Emas (SMUE).

Jamal had previously lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission alleging that funds had been misappropriated from SMUE, which is a programme managed by Yawas.
He questioned today whether Kamsani's appointment as Yawas general manager was related to this case.
SMUE is a scheme in which senior citizens can nominate a beneficiary who would receive RM2,500 for funeral or other expenses.- Mkini
