Is the gomen helping Pemandu make money?
Global Transformation Forum is an “event organized by the rich, for the rich and of the rich,” claims DAP Serdang MP Ong Kian Ming.
Ticket prices for GTF 2017 start at RM4,000, and reaching a ceiling of RM10,000.
According to YB Ong, the government gave GTF 2017 a subsidy of RM15 million. He also says in his press statement yesterday that revenue from the transformation forum “goes directly to a private company”.
The private company organizing GTF 2017 is Pemandu Associates Sdn Bhd. It is co-owned by its CEO and president Idris Jala the evangelista.
