Najib should not take Malaysians for fools or simpletons in declaring that 1MDB not directly involved in DOJ law suits as without 1MDB there would be no DOJ legal action for forfeiture of over US$1 billion MDB-linked assets in United States

I am most shocked that the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak had said after the UMNO Supreme Council meeting this evening that 1MDB is not directly involved in the US Department of Justice (DOJ) report, which is probably a a justification for no government or official response to the DOJ legal suits for forfeiture of over US$1 billion assets in United States which the American authorities alleged had been stolen, misappropriated, defrauded or diverted from 1MDB as a result of global embezzlement, money-laundering and corruption crimes.

Najib said the DPJ civil suits did not contain any information or views from the Malaysian government, Attorney-General’s Chambers or 1MDB itself.
He added that “only those specifically named in the report are mentioned in the report” and that 1MDB is not directly involved in the report.
Najib cannot be more wrong.

Najib should not take Malaysians for fools or simpletons in declaring that 1MDB is not directly involved in DOJ law suits as without 1MDB there would be no DOJ legal action for forfeiture of over US$1 billion MDB-linked assets in United States.

In fact, without 1MDB, the DOJ 136-page legal suits would have no legs to stand on and would immediately collapse.

“1MDB” is strewn all over the 136-page report, and in the first 20 pages, there are over 130 references.

How then can Najib say that 1MDB is not directly involved in the DOJ report?

Although the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak has not been named personally in the DOJ legal suits, it is no exaggeration to say that the identity of “MALAYSIAN OFFICIAL 1” mentioned 36 times in the 136-page DOJ report has received remarkable concurrence whether locally or internationally – that it could only refer to Najib and nobody else.

Let me ask Najib a question I had posed in Batu Pahat last night – whether Najib will deny he is “MALAYSIAN OFFICIAL 1” or will he admit he is being referred to in DOJ legal suits and sue the US Attorney-General Loretta Lynch for defamation for implying or insinuating that he was involved in the global multi-billion ringgit theft, embezzlement, misappropriation or money-laundering of 1MDB funds?

The United States Attorney-General Loretta E. Lynch, said at her press conference on July 20 that the 1MDB was “intended to grow the Malaysian economy and support the Malaysian people.  Instead, they were stolen, laundered through American financial institutions and used to enrich a few officials and their associates.  Corrupt officials around the world should make no mistake that we will be relentless in our efforts to deny them the proceeds of their crimes.”

Anyone who has read the 136-page DOJ legal suits would be shocked by the breadth of the alleged embezzlement, corruption and money laundering related to the 1MDB funds, and the “massive, brazen and blatant diversion of billions of dollars to be laundered through U.S. financial institutions”.

As “MALAYSIAN OFFICIAL 1” is described as a king-pin of the multi-billion ringgit 1MDB global embezzlement, money-laundering and corruption, will Najib therefore institute legal proceedings against the US Attorney-General for defamation?

    From the departing words of ex- MACC leaders, UMNO is corrupt all through the next generation, so why would Najib care to confess anything even with absolute proof?

    The issue is how could Hadi’s PAS implicit support not equally condemned? We know why, because it got the label Islam painted on them. We need to thank Najib, UMNO and UMNO Youth to show us their corruption, in idea and spirit is equally if not worst in Hadi’s PAS. Hadi’s PAS will eventually be much worst than UMNO if they have as much power as Najib and UMNO.

    It’s not just UMNO that must go away, the decline and irrelevance of Hadi’s PAS must be certain, albeit carefully and slower.

    Ya, looks like this is the grand design of this whole 1MDB heist. Looks like JLow and Najis had an agreement when they plan. JLow and Riza will take the properties, art works, movie making and gambling debts, basically just enjoy riotous living with our money. Najis wants cash cash cash into his personal account. Not interested in properties or movie making. Part of money for GE 13 and maybe GE 14, and some for Losimah to spend on hairdo,handbags and watches.

    We Malaysians are both, Fools and Simpletons. Otherwise how can UMNO and UMNO Bahru rule for so long?

    Old men remember more scandals than young men: Tin-market cornering loss; Bank scandal and murder of a Malaysian auditor in in a banana plantation in Hong Kong; UEM Scandal, arrest of all whistle-blowers, and detention in 5-star Hotel Kamunting; Murder of the Judiciary and the Altatunya and other murders and Under the counter for submarines, but not under the sea for submarines; …

    And THE LAST ONE INVOLVING UMPTEEN BILLIONs of RINGGIT takes the cake and makes you want to cough blood. The institutions of government have been compromised, and there is no hope. U.S. the great satan/syaitan is suing our beloved M.O.1. How not to cough more blood?
