JOHOR BAHRU – The Police Heritage Trust Fund (TAWP) management procedure will be changed soon to expand its role to enable it to collect funds to carry out activities.
Deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said TAWP could only receive allocations from the government and could not collect donations, to look after the welfare of retired policemen.
However, to date, TAWP has funds totalling RM28 million, said Nur Jazlan.
“TAWP can play a role like Warriors’ Fund (Malaysian Armed Forces) which collects and manages its own fund, if the procedure is changed.
“Simultaneously, it can also give the opportunity to retirees to be involved in numerous activities, other than just looking after their welfare,” he told a media conference after handing over a storm disaster aid at Tan Sri Mohamed Rahmat Complex here today.
Over another issue, Nur Jazlan, urged the National Audit Department to conduct a performance audit on the Sungai Segget Transformation project here, implemented by the Iskandar Development Region authorities.
The Pulai Member of Parliament said this was following several weaknesses he had identified in his observation of the project.
“Earlier, I thought the cost of the project was only RM200 million but then realised its actual cost is RM340 million,” he added. – BERNAMA
