Pos Malaysia to probe undelivered MB’s cards

682

POS Malaysia Bhd believes the 2,000 Hari Raya greeting cards from Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, dumped in an apartment block on Monday, could probably be due to “an accident”, rather that be politically-motivated.

Pos Malaysia Bhd group corporate communications head Datin Rohaiza Hashim said the incident is under investigation.

“I am waiting for the full report before I can comment any further,” Rohaiza said.

On Monday, about 2,000 Hari Raya greeting cards bearing Khalid’s picture were found in the guardhouse of an apartment block in Bandar Seri Damansara.

The cards were part of some 7,000 Hari Raya greeting cards sent out to the people early this month. An apartment resident, who found the cards, reported the matter to the Khalid’s political secretary.

Chinese daily Sin Chew reported that during a Press conference organised by the Menteri Besar’s office after a meeting with Pos Malaysia representatives, it was said the dumped postcards could have been purely a delivery system problem and not politically-motivated.

According to the Pos Malaysia representatives, several locations were chosen during festive periods as drop-off points for letters to be delivered within an area, and the cards could have been “accidentally left” at that location.

Sin Chew also reported that the postman on duty had realised that the bags were missing but thought the cards had been distributed by a colleague.

It was further claimed that a resident of Bandar Seri Damansara saw the cards being left at the guardhouse. He alerted the postman but was ignored.-MalayMail Online

Dua Posmen Disiasat Ekoran Kad Tidak Dihantar

KUALA LUMPUR, 11 Sep (Bernama) — Pos Malaysia Berhad mengesahkan dua posmen kini disiasat berikutan dua guni kad ucapan Hari Raya Menteri Besar Selangor Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim yang dijumpai tersadai di sebuah pondok keselamatan di Bandar Tun Razak, Jumaat lepas.

Pemangku Ketua Pegawai Operasinya Bahaman Kamaruzzaman berkata mereka yang didapati bersalah akan dikenakan tindakan sewajarnya.

“Tiada elemen sabotaj. Kad itu disusun mengikut nombor rumah dan jalan, jadi sudah pasti ada niat untuk menghantarnya,” katanya kepada pemberita selepas taklimat media di Pejabat Pos Malaysia di sini Jumaat.

Beliau berkata semua kad dalam guni berkenaan telah diedar mengikut alamat yang tertera.

Sementara itu, Pos Malaysia menasihatkan orang ramai supaya menghantar kad ucapan Hari Raya selewat-lewatnya 14 Sept ini bagi memastikan kad yang dihantar sampai sebelum Hari Raya.

“Bagi memastikan semua kad-kad dihantar, kami mengambil beberapa inisiatif termasuk mengambil pekerja sementara, melakukan penghantaran pada Hari Ahad serta memastikan peralatan mel mencukupi,” katanya.

Beliau berkata pada tahun ini Pos Malaysia menjangkakan 6.6 juta kad Hari Raya akan diproses berbanding 7.2 juta tahun lepas.
