The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has denied recommending 37 charges against Prime Minister Najib Razak in relation to the SRC International investigation.
It said that the article by Sarawak Report yesterday which said MACC had recommended 37 separate charges against Najib involving the SRC International case is untrue.
What Malaysians want to know is whether the MACC had submitted any recommendation to the Attorney-General, Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali for any charge against Najib in relation to the SRC International investigation, and if so, how many.
Furthermore, on a question which MACC should no equivocate, is whether it is true that the total sums of money deposited into Najib’s personal bank accounts meant for the last general election were not just RM2.6 billion but RM4 billion.
These latest developments have debunked Najib’s self-confident 2016 New Year Message on 31st December 2015 that his twin mega scandals – the RM2.6 billion “donation” and the RM55 billion 1MDB – have ceased to be issues as they had been resolved.
In fact, the twin mega scandals have become even greater issues in the new year – and there can be no excuse for Najib to remain silent on whether the deposits into his personal banking accounts totalled some RM4 billion and not just RM2.6 billion, purportedly for UMNO’s 13th General Election campaign.
Najib should speak up and answer these questions or he should step down as Prime Minister.
Malaysians are still waiting for the basic questions on the RM2.6 billion (or is it RM4 billion) “donation” scandal to be answered, viz:
1. What are the total amounts of these donations deposited into Najib’s personal banking accounts – RM2.6 billion, RM4 billion or more?
2. Who were the donors, one or more, and which foreign country or countries involved;
3. What were the motives for such donations – to fight Israel, ISIS, Shiites, “liberal” Muslims, DAP or who?
4. Where have the donations gone to? Who were the beneficiaries, whether Ministers or MPs, how much each had received, how they had spent them; and
5. What is left of these astronomical figures and where are the monies now.
Malaysia suffered the infamy of being placed third in the world’s “worst corruption scandals in 2015” because of Najib’s twin mega scandals, with the Prime Minister even becoming the subject of US Federal Bureau of Investigsations probe under the US Kleptocracy Assets Recovery Initiative 2010 but Najib had been extraordinarily mute on these scandals.
He did not turn up in Parliament on the last day of the 25-day budget session although Ministers had promised that all questions about the Prime Minister’s RM2.6 billion “donation” scandal would be answered on Dec. 3, 2015 – but all the questions were left unanswered.
But what is most intriguing of all, is the failure by Najib to initiate legal and court proceedings against the Wall Street Journal which first made the expose of his RM2.6 billion donation scandal in its report in early July. Why the failure by Najib to initiate legal proceedings to clear his name for the WSJ Report?
Malaysians expect an answer from Najib.
Is he prepared to furnish it before the Special Parliament on January 26 and 27 on the TPPA?
