Kickdefella gets the "kick" from Pas

The movie director, who achieved blog-fame for using movie posters on his blog to take jabs at Abdullah Ahmad Badawi when he was PM (the name of his blog was inspired by Pak Lah), joined the PAS state goverment of Kelantan one year before the March 2008 by-election where he used the media, especially the new media, to help improve PAS' appeal to Malaysians outside Kelantan.


From Malaysiakini:

The ongoing graft probe at Kelantan Chief Minister Incorporated (PMBK) has resulted in the sacking of its corporate liaison officer Syed Azidi Syed Abdul Aziz.

Popularly known by his Internet pen name Kickdefella, Syed Azidi in an entry in his blog, said he learnt about the termination of his contract with PMBK at noon yesterday.

The speculation is that his sacking was related to the ongoing Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) investigations against PBMK chief executive officer Mohd Ariffahmi Abdul Rahman.

MACC has yet to reveal its reasons for probing PMBK and Ariffahmi, the son-in-law of Kelantan Menteri Besar Nik Aziz Nik Mat, but it is believed to be over financial improprieties.

Syed Azidi said that since the MACC began investigations into PMBK, he had been a victim of many spurious accusations by those who have been brought in for questioning.

He said he would be holding a press conference tomorrow to clear his name before returning to his home in Kuala Lumpur.

He also suggested a possible rift between his detractors and Nik Aziz, who is also the chairperson of PMBK.

"I will stand firmly behind the menteri besar throughout the investigations," wrote Syed Azidi, a staunch supporter of Husam Musa, one of Nik Aziz's protege and state exco member.

Denies involvement

Syed Azidi said that upon learning of his termination, he had met Nik Aziz to accept the termination notice and sought the latter's advice on how to take an oath based on Islamic traditions.

He said he then took an oath in front of the MB denying he was responsible for reports of corrupt practices in PMBK to the MACC.

He also denied divulging information about the corporation to Umno politician and Nenggiri state assemblyperson Mat Yusof Abdul Ghani.

PMBK is an investment arm of the state government directly under the control of the Menteri Besar's office.

Ariffahmi was appointed as chief operating officer in 2008 before being promoted as CEO two months ago. He was questioned twice by the MACC, while his chief financial officer was questioned last Thursday, where several documents including financial statements were seized.



Penamatan Kontrak Serta Merta

Tengahari tadi sejurus selepas saya tiba ke Kota Bharu dari tugas rasmi di Kuala Lumpur, saya dimaklumkan bahawa kontrak perkhidmatan saya dengan Perbadanan Menteri Besar Kelantan telah ditamatkan dengan serta merta.

Sebaik menerima makluman itu, saya menemui YAB Tuan Guru Haji Nik Abdul Aziz Bin Nik Mat, Menteri Besar Kelantan dan Pengerusi Perbadanan Menteri Besar Kelantan.

Di dalam pertemuan pada 2.45pm di Pejabat Menteri Besar Kelantan saya telah,

1. Mengucapkan jutaan terima kasih diatas kepercayaan Tuan Guru selama ini terhadap saya.
2. Memaklumkan bahawa saya menerima penamatan serta merta ini dengan tanpa rasa terkilan.

Saya kemudiannya meminta YAB Menteri Besar mengajar saya bagaimana untuk bersumpah mengikut syarak kerana saya ingin bersumpah dihadapannya bahawa,

1. Saya tidak pernah membuat sebarang aduan/laporan kepada SPRM berhubung PMBK.
2. Saya tidak pernah memberi sebarang maklumat kepada Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri Barisan Nasional dari Nenggiri berhubung PMBK sewaktu Sidang DUN yang lalu.

Setelah melafazkan apa yang ingin saya lafazkan, saya mengucup tangan YAB Menteri Besar dan meminta maaf sekiranya ada kesilapan di pihak saya sepanjang perkhidmatan saya dan meminta dihalalkan makan minum dan gaji yang saya terima selama ini.

Perjumpaan tersebut disaksikan oleh Setiausaha Politik Menteri Besar.

Semenjak Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia memasuki premis Perbadanan Menteri Besar Kelantan, terdapat tuduhan-tuduhan dari pihak-pihak yang ditemubual oleh SPRM terhadap saya.

Saya akan berdiri teguh di belakang YAB Menteri Besar sepanjang siasatan ini.

Esok saya akan membuat sidang media untuk menjelaskan dan membersihkan nama saya dari segala tuduhan yang dilemparkan dan kemudiannya akan terus pulang ke Kuala Lumpur.

Perjuangan Belum Selesai.

Patah Sayap Terbang Jua.

Syed Azidi Syed Abdul Aziz
