IJN Doctors Prefer Status Quo. So Why Are Najib And Sime Darby Lying?

National Heart Institute (IJN) doctors are happy to serve the institute in its present form and do not want to be made a scapegoat in the proposed privatisation of the institute.

In a statement signed by 33 of the 35 medical consultants working for IJN, they stressed that the proposed privatisation was not a response towards their demands for better pay.

“We would like to reiterate our commitment to serve IJN in its current form and want to stress that the move must not be seen as a response to our demands for better pay,” it said.

The doctors added that the medical personnel were not at all involved in the negotiations for the proposed takeover. (The Star Online)

***** Yesterday Najib said that the proposal would have some advantages for IJN as funding would not be a problem for Sime Darby and doctors would also receive better remuneration and that Sime Darby must pledge its commitment that the poor would not be marginalised if IJN is to be transferred to it. That statement was meant to allay fears about the poor being ignored while throwing a sop to the doctors there.

It is abundantly clear that the IJN doctors themselves smell a huge rat in the whole deal which in reality is meant to enrich a few Umno cronies as is customary in this once fair land of ours.

With Najib holding the finance portfolio and his impending rise to the PM's post, this particular episode does not boost our confidence in him. On the contrary, with all the political baggage and scandals he has already amassed, this highly suspicious proposal merely adds to our worry about the slippery slope this country will be on under his leadership.

Let us not forget that it was this same Najib in cahoots with former sports minister Azalina who was hell-bent on splurging hundreds of millions of taxpayer money under the pretext of building a sports center in the UK despite near unanimous public objections. That crooked scheme fortunately came to a screeching halt when the local authority there gave Najib and Azalina the 'up yours'.

Makes one almost regret why we allowed Pak Lah to be hounded out of office.

This is not the first neither the last get-rich-quick scheme that only Umno has the expertise to execute. Thank God the people won this round. I'm just wondering which profitable organisation is next in their sight?

Yes, methinks Najib has a vested interest in the proposal.
Manna from Heaven !

And he's not even the PM yet ! Makes me sick to think of the future direction of the country under him.

Anonymous,
Some bloody high ranking politicians are benefitting from this deal. Don't believe a word of what these fcuking ministers are saying, they are all liars and corrupted. Sime Darby did not dream up this idea of buying IJN, idiots at the top instigated it to profit from the deal. You better believe there is another Altantuya in between, there still lots of C4 in the garrision.

i'm skeptical on Sime Darby on the "social obligation".private sector see money first then social issue later.that's the fact.private sector is a money making sector.

i'm puzzled on why would Sime Darby be in interested in IJN and why MoF and Najib have this idea to pass IJN to such company?

if Sime Darby really want to do social obligation,then run SJMC as a social obligation rather than just a private hospital.

i'm quite worry about the fate of all poor patients if the deal gonna be a reality soon.IJN was built to help these poor people.
