This information about the recently appointed COO of the Olympic Council of Malaysia has been freely available and in the public domain since at least June 2018:
Ung Su Ling & Dennis See
Ung worked at Merican & Partners Asset Management, where she handled investments for Jho Low. She later joined his family business Wynton Group after which Jho Low made her CEO of Yayasan Rakyat 1Malaysia (YR1M), the charity arm of 1MDB. It was through YR1M, which received hundreds of millions from companies such as Genting and Tanjong, that cash was channelled to political programmes in the name of charity. See, who was YR1M project director, worked for Gerakan and Koh Tsu Koon when he was CM of Penang. Ihsan Perdana, the CSR arm of SRC, was a recipient of YR1M money. Money from Ihsan Perdana was alleged to have made its way to Najib.
Consequently ,this statement reported by Free Malaysia Today raises a number of questions:
When contacted, OCM said Ung was appointed after an extensive hiring process involving 60 applicants.
“The shortlisted applicants were interviewed by an OCM panel and each one gave their markings,” OCM deputy president Abdul Azim Zabidi told FMT.
“In the end, we tabulated the marks and she got the highest votes,” he said.
Azim said Ung’s experience in dealing with sports associations was also a plus.
Among others, she had served as an assistant general manager at CIMB Foundation, which was actively involved in a number of sports including squash, cycling and rugby.
When asked about her past associations, Azim said they were not of concern as she was not implicated in any investigations.
“She was just an employee. In any foundation or NGO, when you get a donation, you just accept it. You don’t really go behind the people to ask where the money came from.
“We look at her experience and what she brings to the table,” he said, adding that Ung would be tasked with taking OCM’s operations to the next level.
