Oh, oh..Ahmad Ismail is not such a pompous nonentity after all. I got this from The Malaysian Bar. It reveals among other things that
- he is the Executive Chairman of Peninsular Metroworks Sdn Bhd (with a paid up capital of only RM 50,000), which was given the RM 1.02 billion Penang Outer Ring Road concession, but the project was recently put on hold by the federal government
- he is the Director of Nadi Senandung Sdn Bhd (a hundred ringgit shell company) which holds a 55% stake in the above company
- he was declared a bankrupt in May 2006
- a police report was recently lodged by the Penang Development Corporation against him as a Director of the now defunct Popular Profile Sdn Bhd for not returning RM 500,000 belonging to the the state.
So much for the champion of the Malays.
