I saw a brochure today, advertising a free mammogram service provided by the Selangor government for women above 25. I turned to the back of the brochure to look for the contact details and found that it was provided by a certain “Forrest Medical Group” in Malaysia. This got me curious as I was wondering who were these people, the Forest Medical Group.
Obviously, I am not privy to the big picture here but I am quite concerned at the fact that the group’s Executive Director, Beh Jiun Jye, was the DAPSY International Affairs Bureau Secretary in 2003. This raises some red-flags in my mind. I am just wondering how this medical group got involved in this project and if it went through the proper transparent procedures.
Somehow, I have this sinking feeling that this would not be the case here.
PS: Maybe someone more connected than me can do the sleuthing and find out what are the specifics of the deal and programme.
Update@2010-11-23: Not that I am suggesting that there is any impropriety afoot, but Beh Jiun Jye is currently in the running for a position in DAP Selangor this weekend. It just does not look good on Pakatan if they do things like the BN – regardless of the merits of the programme. I just hope that they did not.
Update@2010-11-25: Was alerted by a reader. Seems like the BFM page is down after being up for almost 2 years. Not sure why. Anyway, the google cache is still up tho.
