One of the main tasks of the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) is to perform crash tests under the ASEAN NCAP banner, and to crash the cars, MIROS will have to first purchase them. And when there’s procurement involved, whatever the company, there’s always a chance to slip in some personal gain.

According to Bernama, former director-general of MIROS Datuk Khairil Anwar Abu Kassim was charged in the Shah Alam sessions court today on four counts of falsifying documents on the quotation of several vehicles for its crash tests. Khairil Anwar, 47, pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

It was reported that the ex-MIROS chief was charged with falsifying the quotation documents from several companies for the supply of 16 cars from Thailand for MIROS’ crash test lab in Bukit Katil, Ayer Keroh, Melaka, with the intention of using them as genuine. The offence was committed in Taman Kajang Sentral, Kajang, on July 24, 2017, it was alleged.

The charges were filed under Section 468 of the Penal Code. If found guilty, the accused can face up to seven years jail and a fine. The judge set RM50,000 bail with one surety and ordered Khairil Anwar to surrender his passport to the court and report himself at the Putrajaya MACC office on the first working day of every month. The court set November 21 for mention.

        Tertuduh, Datuk Dr. Khairil Anwar Abu Kassim, 47, bagaimanapun mengaku tidak bersalah selepas pertuduhan dibacakan di hadapan Hakim Awang Kerisnada Awang Mahmud.

        “Khairil Anwar didakwa memalsukan dokumen sebut harga bagi pembekalan 16 buah kenderaan jenis Suzuki Carry dan Cherry Transcab dari empat buah syarikat berlainan dengan niat menipu.

        Kesemua kenderaan dari Thailand itu bagi ujian perlanggaran di makmal Miros di Bukit Katil, Melaka.”

        The article reports that the ex-MIROS chief was charged with falsifying the quotation documents for several companies for the supply of 16 cars from Thailand, not Perodua.

    This is why Malaysia is still a third world country slightly better than Indonesia! A small red dot down south of Johor has no resources of its own and yet has a per capital income far greater than Bossku’s nose hair combined! Corruption is so rife from even the most insignificant garmen agency to the most important one that even everyone, including, the blind, can see who is corrupt! Go Malaysia! You will always be slightly better off than Indonesia!

      It’s time for Asean Ncap to relocate all its testing facilities to God-fearing, clean, zero corruption nation of Singapore.

        If it is not clean, there would be a cover-up; MACC won’t take statement from minister & won’t have further action on those 5 officers.

    biasalah, when anyone becomes ex-chief and when protection is no more, all the dirt will surface. if he is still heading MIROS, all the dirt will still be swept under the carpet.

    This is why any crash test result (especially 5 Stars) by MIROS cannot be trusted. It is better to cross-check that car model with another crash test (such as EURO ANCAP) to see if it’s really a safe car.
