Khazanah directors threat of resignation may have exposed entire board to liability for billions lost as a result of their "undated letter" misadventure.

by Ganesh Sahathevan

In a typically Malaysian move the chairman and directors of board Malaysian sovereign wealth 
fund Khazanah have chosen to threaten to resign, sending Prime Minister Tun Mahathir undated 
resignation letters so that he can decide if they should resign.

The problem for the chairman and the board is this:it matters little what the PM does with
their undated letters, their duty remains to the company and its shareholder.

Directors can of course resign at any time, and they do so by submitting written,dated ,signed letters of
resignation to the company secretary, This "let the PM decide" maneuver does little more than convey to  
the shareholder that the board has gone on strike. While this may work for  be coolies, it does not work for
company directors.Directors who refuse to work are in breach of their duties as directors, and may liable 
for the fall in share prices at Tenaga, Telekom and other Khazanah companies listed on the Bursa Malaysia,
caused by their threat of resignation.

Just some days I was in search for a loan of $ 150,000.00, As I was in search of funds to start up a business. I was scammed about $15,000.00 dollars and I decided not to involve my self in such business again. But a Friend of mine introduced me to a loan firm due to my appearance and doings and also my complains to her. And I told her that I am not interested in any loan deal anymore but she told me that there is still a sincere lender who she will recommend me to, And she gave me the details of this man who is called MOORE ROBBINSON. And I really put a trial and I am most greatful and lucky today, I was given a loan amount of $95,000,00 Dollars by this great firm MOORE LOAN COMPANY.
