Special task force to probe the “JPJandora Papers” allegations of classic license plate registrations – Loke

Last Friday, transport minister Anthony Loke announced the establishment of a special task force to investigate allegations of misconduct at the road transport department (JPJ) related to the registration of classic vehicle licence plates.

This came following the disclosure of such activity by the Telegram app group Edisi Siasat, which claimed that classic registration numbers had been revived and were being sold for hundreds of thousands of ringgit, as Bernama reported.

A 28-page document, which is now known as the “JPJandora Papers,” was provided, showing a list of number plates by year since 2007 and by state that were allegedly revived and registered for ownership. The post claimed that these had already been sold at a very good price, either to individuals or companies, with the activity said to be orchestrated by JPJ officials.

Loke said that he had highlighted the matter at a post-Cabinet meeting and said that the special task force, which will be comprised of members of the transport ministry’s integrity unit, will investigate the allegations and recommend improvements for transparency in the process of registering classic number plates.

He added that the task force would also need the full involvement of the JPJ, as it had the information and access to the alleged misconduct which is being investigated. “For sure, the involvement of the JPJ (in the task force) is needed, as it has the information, data and others. If there is no involvement of JPJ, how can we access the information,” he said.

He added that JPJ director-general Datuk Rospiagus Taha, who has been named as a member of the special task force, had only been appointed as to the post on June 19, and had no interest in the issue being investigated. “The current DG is new, with the so-called issues (which are being investigated) being from 2016,” he stated.

    Dear number plate minister,

    1. Mana stadardised digital number plate to be issued by JPJ?
    2. Please install more traffic light cameras, scary these days to cross junctions
    3. Penalise those that do not follow the law, especially those two-wheelers
    4. Catch those people who do not have driving license, road tax and insurance. I kena banged from old iswara with no roadtax, insurance, and a foreigner no license. I cannot claim sommore

    Whether the JPJ DG is new,is immaterial.U cant include him in the task force.
    YOu need to tell JPJ to f ..off while u r given password to access their “Pandora files”..
    Come on,this Pandora shit has been going on for quite a while,Ahlokekor.
    Thats why,we should STOP all these SYIOK number plate sales..it is a goldmine for corrupted JPJ staff who make tons of cash from SYIOK sendiri drivers who want GAYA,MUTU,KEUNGGULAN euphoria.

      Aiya the smarter (but not easier) way would be to whack the JPJ in to shape and use the number plate sales to generate more revenue. After all if people want to gaya and willing to bayar then gomen kaya from it la.
      Of course the term “conflict of interest” got no meaning in Malaysia.

    This was reported in 2016 as the work of ‘mafia group’, but it seems to have escaped the attention of every minister until now.

      Because we have a corrupt government. All this is just a cover-up for corrupt politicians. Just another soap opera.

    Bro… don’t waste tax payers money to investigate on corruption when there won’t be any outcome. And the judicial system itself doesn’t appear equipped to handle corruption. These are big boys league stuff. Stick to tackle traffic jam and licensing and potholes.
