Malta u l-politika

Ittri ċċensurati u punti ta' riflessjoni politika.

I am against any form of useless taxpayers’ money spending by any government. I cannot understand why security guards must be paid €5.85 plus vat per hour (PQ27596) to guard a monument. And why would voters and helpers from the 9th and 10th district be invited for the inauguration of the new Marsaxlokk promenade? Why should money be spent to inaugurate monuments and places? Why should there be days of entertainment, programmes published, and adverts placed in newspapers and magazines? Does anybody keep track on how taxpayers’ money is spent? At the same time Cabinet colleagues do not lift a finger to change a situation of people in need of help, due to sickness and unfortunate circumstances. I believe that if all citizens have to do sacrifices, then this useless government/minister spending should stop straight away. What’s next, a free day trip to Gozo? – Robert Arrigo, The Malta Independent 29.7.2011

TBERBIEQ TA' FLUS U ASSI TAL-POPLU

It-tberbieq ta' flus minn Gvernijiet Nazzjonalisti irid jigi ikkonsidrat fid-dawl tal-qaghda finanzjarja tal-pajjiz. Il-Malti jghid, "Kull min ghandu l-bzar, ha jroxxu" jigifieri kull min qieghed tajjeb fil-flus halli jiffanfra bi flusu. Dan ma jistax jinghad ghall-Gvern Nazzjonalista ghal zewg ragunijiet principali. L-ewwel nett il-flus tal-Gvern qatt ma kienu ta' Dr. Fenech Adami jew ta' Dr. Gonzi, ghax dawk huma flus il-poplu Malti u Ghawdxi, veru li l-Gvern jamministra dawn il-flus imma qatt ma kienu jew ghad ikunu xi propjeta ta' xi politiku. It-tieni il-Gvern qatt ma kien fi stat fejn seta' jberbaq il-flus li jamministra bl-addocc. Dan ghaliex il-Gvern kellu u ghad ghandu dejn enormi li jrid jithallas. Ghalhekk qatt ma tista taghmel sens li tabbuza minn flus haddiehor fl-istess waqt li ghandek miljuni kbar ta' Liri f'dejn. Imma l-Gvern Nazzjonalista hekk jimxi? Meta fis-snin tmenin, Dr. Fenech Adami, dak iz-zmien Kap tal-Oppizizzjoni, kien mistoqsi minn fejn kien se jgib il-flus biex imexxi meta jkun fil-gvern, kien irrisponda minghajr tlaqlieq li l-flus mhux problema. Kemm kien hemm min irrifletta fuq dan il-kliem dak iz-zmien? Kien kliem perikoluz li l-maggoranza tal-Maltin ma ndunatx bih ? u issa qeghdin inbaghtu l-konsegwenzi. Li l-Gvern Nazzjonalista litteralment nefaq flus il-poplu bl-addocc ma nghidux jien imma jghiduh il-fatti. Din il-pagna ghandha sservi biex wiehed jiftakar fl-eluf u miljuni ta' Liri li matul is-snin gew minfuqa bl-addocc minn Gvernijiet Nazzjonalisti ta' Dr. Fenech Adami u issa ta' Dr. Gonzi. Ftakru dejjem li dawn il-flus minfuqa huma tieghi u tieghek. Ftakru wkoll li dawn l-ezempji t'hawn taht huma ftit ghax it-tberbieq huwa hafna akbar minn dak li qieghed jigi msemmi hawnhekk. Bl-akbar responsabilta nghid li Alla jhares li l-poplu Malti jkun jaf it-tberbieq sfrenat li qieghed isir minn flusu ghax kieku jkollna rivoluzzjoni. Imma l-poplu gwejjef, qieghed ihalli gvern arroganti jabbuza minnu u ghalhekk kull min qieghed jappogga lil dan il-Gvern qieghed awtomatikament ibierek l-abbuzi li qeghdin isiru. Wiehed m'ghandux ukoll jinsa li din il-hela' ta' flus giet fl-istess zmien li l-Gvern Nazzjonalista zamm lura fuq infieq bzonnjuz. Ma jistax wiehed ma jsemmix mizuri li ttiehdu bhal gheluq ta' poliklinici biex jigu ffrankati l-flus, jew il-mira tal-Gvern sabiex lill-impjegati tac-civil jifrizalhom il-paga ghal diversi snin, jew iz-zieda fl-eta tal-penzjoni biex il-gvern ihallas anqas f'penzjonijiet, jew id-decizjoni li jitwaqqfu l-festini kollha tal-Milied lill-haddiema tal-gvern, jew it-tnaqqis fil-budgets tal-kunsilli lokali. U ghax ma nsemmux decizjonijiet infami tal-gvern ta' Dr. Fenech Adami bhal meta hafer il-hlas ta' miljuni ta' Liri f'bolli lill-kumpaniji kbar. Wiehed m'ghandux ukoll jinsa dak li qal Dr. Fenech Adami qabel l-elezzjoni tal-1987 fejn fuq it-television lil Dr. Karmenu Mifsud Bonnici kien qallu precizament, "Ahna mhux partit li jberbaq il-flus."

Il-Kaz tal-istazzjon tar-radju Voice of the Mediterranean

Informazzjoni zvelata minn maltastar.com 8.7.2006

 

The Auditor General’s inquiry into the operations of ‘Voice of the Mediterranean’ (VOM), a radio station co-owned by the Maltese government, reveals that the Foreign Ministry lost a luxury car bought out of public funds, but did nothing to recover it!

 

Months after this radio station closed down, the Ministry did not take any action to recover a Lm15,000 vehicle, and even when the Auditor General managed to find it, the ministry still failed to retrieve it. According to the inquiry report, the Ministry has not yet recalled its car. 

 

The vehicle, a Volkswagen Passat worth Lm15,000, was bought by VOM for its Deputy Managing Director, a post occupied by one of the Libyan officials representing the Libyan government. VOM was co-owned by the Maltese and Libyan government, but since for the last years Libya failed to give its funding for the company, it was clear that the vehicle was bought out of funds given by the Maltese government. In fact, the Auditor General (AG)’s inquiry claims that “VOM during the last three years of operations [when the vehicle was bought] was financed by the subvention given by the Maltese government”.

 

 

AG finds it!

 

The AG report claims that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which was directly responsible for VOM, informed him that two of the company’s three cars were taken by the same ministry, but “the one allocated to the Deputy Managing Director of VOM could not be traced”.

 

The AG then reported that “the National Audit Office [AG’s office - NAO] on its own initiative succeeded in finding the vehicle”. Sources told maltastar.com that the NAO did not go into much effort to find the vehicle. “All he had to do was ask people who were actively involved in the radio station when it was still in operation” the sources said.

 

In his comments, the AG notes that “no action has yet been taken to recall the vehicle that forms part of the VOM assets”.

 

In the inquiry’s report, the National Audit Office (NAO) claims that the value of the fully expensed motor vehicles – one for the managing director at Lm10,000 and the other for Lm15,000 for the Deputy was far in excess of that allowed in similar ranks in the public sector”. The managing director of this company was former PN Parliamentary Secretary Richard Muscat. Following the closing down of VOM, he was appointed Maltese Ambassador to Ireland, a position which he still holds. “No plausible explanation was given for the departure from MFC Circular 5/98 that established the expense allowed for cars for use by different ranks in the public sector” the AG report states. 

 

This is not the only part of the report that shows how Muscat spent more than the limits set by government regulations. As from 2002, Muscat was given a Lm700 yearly hospitality allowance. The AG found that in 2002, Muscat spent Lm846 hospitality expenses in excess of his allowance. In 2003, the Maltese ambassador spent an extra Lm2,043 in hospitality expenses.  

 

Muscat pleased

 

Yet, in a statement issued on Thursday, Muscat continues to insist that he was not responsible for the irregularities at the government company he managed for three years. He further said that he was “pleased to note that the conclusions of the NAO report…do not give evidence that supports allegations or suspicions of financial impropriety or misuse of public funds.”

 

Below is a list of other findings that the AG found in VOM’s last three years of operation, since Richard Muscat was appointed managing director:

 

Three refurbishments for Muscat’s office

 

“The furniture for VOM’s Managing Director’s office was replaced twice within the space of one year, soon after taking up the post in September 2001 whilst still in Floriana [originally VOM was housed in part of Floriana’s MEPA buildings], and again just over one year later when VOM was relocated to Birkirkara”. The last office refurbishment for Richard Muscat’s office cost Lm6,000, the report confirms.

 

Lm56,000 direct order instead of Lm200

 

Richard Muscat gave a direct order to a local company for Lm56,000 worth of fire prevention systems for VOM’s new offices at Birkirkara, without issuing a call for tenders or getting different quotations.

 

NAO considered the sum spent on fire prevention as excessive. A technical report commissioned by the Auditor General shows that “suppression systems such as those installed at VOM premises are usually only found in high risk areas such as in the server rooms of banks and financial institutions where highly sensitive and critical information is kept. VOM does not apparently have such sensitive data. Moreover fire risk at a radio station is rather minimal…no other radio station in Malta has a similar suppression system in operation.”

 

The technical report commissioned by the AG states that rather than getting into such a big expense, it would have sufficed to simply install a normal fire detection system along with fire extinguishers in strategic positions. It also claimed that it would have been better to install specialised lighting that does not emit electrical energy sparks to reduce fire risks. “The system, according to the NAO appointed expert report would have cost in the region of Lm200”.

 

Swipe cards for all rooms, main door unlocked!

 

VOM installed a complicated access control system with swipe cards controlling entry to each and every room of the radio station. While within the building there were all these high-tech systems, “it results that access to the premises was still unsecured after working hours. There were no locks on the front doors leading to the premises. Any person could walk right into the corridors of the radio station although the individual rooms were secure”.

 

VOM rejects offer for refund!

 

In December 2001, VOM bought specialised software from an Italian company for Lm4,687. Yet, this software remained brand new until the day the radio closed down. “The foreign company never supplied the necessary passwords” for the software, the NAO learnt. Later, this company ceased operation and could not be traced.

 

In view of this useless software, the Maltese contractor who purchased the product for VOM offered to refund the money paid for it. Yet, “it does not appear that the contractor’s offer to refund the cost of the software was taken up by management” the AG stated in his report. This means that VOM’s managing director, who had issued the direct order to this contractor, accepted to pay over Lm4,500 for a software that could never be used without passwords!

 

Lm34,800 become Lm64,000

 

Before moving from Floriana to Birkirkara, Richard Muscat commissioned a report on the cost of converting the radio to a digital system. The report showed that Lm34,800 were required for this operation. Muscat gave a direct order to the same person who drew up this report, but instead of Lm34,800, he was paid Lm64,000. Once again, the AG noted that no call for tenders was issued. Moreover, “it is not understood why management agreed to pay the amount of Lm64,000… to the contractor who was also commissioned to prepare the report, the same person who had estimated the total cost of the requirements to change to a digital system and move to Birkirkara at around Lm34,800”.

 

Thousands of feet in cables lost!

 

VOM paid Lm3,800 for 15,500 feet of cables for wiring the digital upgrading of the radio station. That is just over 65% the maximum width of Gozo! Around 1,000 feet were used for wiring the Floriana offices, which were about to be closed down. The contractor who supplied the cables himself told NAO that the Birkirkara offices needed approximately 5,800 feet of cables. That means that a surplus of 8,700 feet of cables bought unnecessarily. Yet, after VOM closed down, only 1,500 feet of cables were found in the radio’s stores. Where is the rest of the cable bought through public funds?

 

Two PCs for Lm5,300!

 

Cyberspace, the contractor who was given a direct order for VOM’s internet services a few days after he employed Richard Muscat’s son, bought five computer servers using funds from the government company’s coffers. The cost of these PCs was not included in the Lm36,000 per annum fee that the same company was being paid by VOM. The government company paid around Lm5,300 for each server, adding up to a total of Lm26,715. The AG noted that this was done by the management “without seeking ministerial approval.

 

The AG report states that considering the tasks that VOM required, two servers would have been more than enough.

 

Soon after buying the five servers “it came to light that one was not needed”. Instead, VOM needed two normal tower computers. The NAO report estimated that these computers were not worth more than Lm1,000 each. Yet, VOM was given no refund, meaning that it exchanged a Lm5,300 server with two PCs worth less than Lm2,000. What happened to the remaining Lm3,300 in public funds?

 

Muscat took PCs to Ireland

 

When the Auditor General physically checks out the inventory made by VOM prior to its closure, he finds one laptop and two desktop computers missing. It turns out that these computers are currently at the Maltese Embassy in Ireland, where Richard Muscat was appointed ambassador a few weeks after VOM closed down. Yet “these items were not physically checked and the National Audit Office (NAO) relies on the Ministry of Foreign Affair’s verbal declaration”. Why weren’t these computers checked out? What if information that may be important for the inquiry was saved in these computers?

Dr Muscat also claimed that the Government was spending more than three times the estimated cost on several of its capital projects.
