The ghost of Altantunya will continue to haunt Najib and Malaysia until there is a full and satisfactory investigation as to the motive for the heinous murder of the Mongolian murder and the real murderers brought to justice

When the heinous murder and the mysterious disappearance of Saudi Arabian journalist, Jamal Kashoggi in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul hit the world headlines early this month, the first person I thought of was Altantnya Shaariibuu, who was murdered and whose remains destroyed with C4 explosives in Shah Alam on Oct. 16 twelve years ago.

The ghost of Altantunya Shaariibuu will continue to haunt former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Malaysia until there is a full and satisfactory investigation as to the motive for the heinous murder of the Mongolian murder and the real murders brought to justice.

Is Najib prepared to spare the country from further pain, agonies and sufferings and come out with a forthright and straightforward admission of his major role in the 1MDB scandal?

The last five days must have been Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s worst five days in his entire life, which collectively should be worse than his darkest day of May 9, 2018 when he was toppled as the sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia and sent into the political wilderness.

On Friday, October 26, 2018, Najib’s house of cards propping up his claim that the international 1MDB corruption and money-launderintg scandal was fake news and a concocted internatuional conspiracy by his political enemie to topple him from power collapsed when Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel Ahmad Al-Jubeir met the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and denied that Najib’s infamous RM2.6 billion in his personal bank accounts had come from Riyadh.

MACC and other 1MDB scandal investigators should haul up Najib to question whether, apart from Jho Low and him, there is a third mastermind in the 1MDB scandal as suggested by Najib in the Al Jazeera interview

It is going remain one of the mysteries of Malaysian politics as to why former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak decided to guillotine himself on the 1MDB scandal before a world media in his semi-aborted interview with Al Jazeera.

Najib had intended to vindicate himself as a great Prime Minister with his nine-year achievements and legacy in his interview with Al Jazeera, but at the end-of-the-day he had only succeeded in raising the question that apart from fugitive financier Jho Low and himself as the two masterminds of the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal, there may be a third “international mastermind” of the 1MDB scandal.

Is there a third mastermind in the 1MDB scandal as suggested by Najib in his interview with Al Jazeera on Saturday? Read the rest of this entry »

Public Accounts Committee should welcome Najib’s semi-aborted interview with Al Jazeera as Najib had opened up on many new leads on the 1MDB scandal and he should be asked to elaborate on them

The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) which has been directed by Parliament in a special motion to re-investigate the 1MDB scandal should welcome former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s semi-aborted interview with Al Jazeera as Najib had opened up on many new leads on the 1MDB scandal and he should be asked to elaborate on them.

Malaysians must thank Najib for the semi-aborted Al Jazeera interview for it shows why the 14GE decision of May 9, 2018 was right and why we must forge ahead to build a New Malaysia, far away from a rogue democracy, kakistocracy and global kleptocracy

Malaysians must thank Datuk Seri Najib Razak for the semi-aborted Al Jazeera interview for it shows why the historic decision of the 14th General Election of May 9, 2018 to Save Malaysia was right and why Malaysians must forge ahead to build a New Malaysia which is far away from a rogue democracy, kakistocracy and global kleptocracy.

Although Najib staged a walk-out after some 20 minutes of the interview, enough damage had been done and it is no exaggeration to say that Najib had done more damage to himself with his semi-aborted Al Jazeera interview than the visit of the Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister, Abdel Ahmad Al-Jubeir to publicly confess that Najib’s infamous RM2.6 billion in his personal bank account had not come from Riyadh.

Najib can walk out of an Al Jazeera interview, but he cannot walk out of the dock when tried for 1MDB charges of corruption, abuse of power and money-laundering unless he opts for the right to silence in his trial

Former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, can walk out of an Al Jazeera interview to avoid a slew of allegations against him and questions ranging from the 1MDB scandal, the 22-carat pink diamond necklace for his wife Rosmah Mansor to the murders of Altantuyaa Shaaribu, Hussain Najadi and Kevin Morais.

However, he cannot walk out of the dock of a court room when he is tried for scores of 1MDB charges of corruption, abuse of power and money-laundering unless Najib opts to exercise his right to silence in his trial.

Is Najib prepared to state whether he will go into the witness box during his trial not only to state his own case and defence but to be cross-examined by the Deputy Public Prosecutors. Read the rest of this entry »

No Honour among 1MDB thieves

October 26, 2018 was the day when former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak came in from the cold to brave nasty questions about the 1MDB scandal which he had been avoiding for more than five years since the 13th General Election when he accepted the invitation of Al Jazeera for an interview with its 101 East programme.

But it proved to the day when Najib was “hung up to dry” for on this day, the Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel Ahmad Al-Jubeir met the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad to deny that Najib Razak’s infamous RM2.6 billion in his personal bank account had come from Riyadh.

Najib stripped naked by the Saudis

It has finally happened – former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak literally stripped naked by the Saudis.

When it was reported midday yesterday that the Saudi Arabia Foreign Minister Adel Ahmad Al-Jubeir, who had in 2016 said the RM2.6 billion funds received by then prime minister Najib Abdul Razak was a “genuine donation”, is in Malaysia on a three-day visit and would meet the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad today, thinking Malaysians are expecting a news report today that the Saudis have officially repudiated the story that the RM2.6 billion in Najib’s personal banking account in 2013 was a donation from the Saudi Arabia royal family.

When mind games go wrong…

There were three mind games, which had been defined as psychological tactics used to manipulate or intimidate, which went horribly wrong yesterday.

The first was when the UMNO President and former Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi turned up at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court to provide moral support for former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak , who was slapped with an additional six charges to total 38 charges, just seven short of Zahid’s total of 45 charges on corruption, money-laundering and abuse of power.

He later tweeted a photograph of the two of them seated together and stated that the “relentless attack” against the pair would not break their spirit.

“We will remain steadfast in the struggle.

“This overkill leads to a trust deficit in the government. It greatly benefits the accused. Thank-you for dragging us (to court).” Read the rest of this entry »

Najib Razak – the road from Prime Minister to a troll

I could not believe my eyes when I read that the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, was very pleased that he has become a troll – trolling Ministers and Deputy Ministers.

What is a troll?

Wikipedia said that in internet slang, a troll is “a person who starts quarrels or upsets people on the Internet to distract and sow discord by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses and normalizing tangential discussion, whether for the troll’s amusement or a specific gain”.

Malaysians must not waste the second chance to re-set nation building polices to build a New Malaysia with national unity and restore democracy, integrity and justice as it is unlikely that there will be a third chance

Malaysians saved Malaysia and made history on May 9, 2018, giving Malaysians a second chance to reset nation-building policies so that Malaysia will not become a failed and rogue state, on top of being a kakistocracy and global kleptocracy.

A New Malaysia cannot be accomplished in a hundred days or in six months, but will take a decade of two. All Malaysians must develop a Big Picture and Long-term Vision perspectives.

An important start for the building of a New Malaysia was made on May 9, 2018 when we showed the world, at a time when democracy as a system of government was facing crisis of confidence worldwide, that parliamentary democracy is still the best among the worst systems of government.

We must continue the quest to become a top world-class nation by leveraging on the values and assets of the diverse races, religions, languages, cultures and civilizations which meet in confluence in Malaysia. Read the rest of this entry »

Is it divinely ordained that former Prime Minister Najib should speak to an empty chamber in Parliament to underline how low he has fallen and how irrelevant to Malaysians he has become?

Is it divinely ordained that former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak should speak to an empty chamber in Parliament to underline how low he has fallen and how irrelevant he has become to Malaysians?

Such a question would naturally follow from the declaration in Parliament yesterday by the UMNO President and former Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi that the earthquake and tsunami in Palu, Indonesia that killed more than 1,900 people happened because there were over 1,000 people who were involved in LGBT activities.

Malaysians and in fact the world must thank Najib for posting a photograph on his Facebook page showing him delivering a speech in the Dewan Rakyat to rows of empty seats in front of him – which is indeed a rare sight!

In fact, there were several meetings in Parliament going on at the time Najib spoke, including the Public Accounts Committee and two Ministerial briefings on forthcoming parliamentary business. Read the rest of this entry »

Will Hishammuddin be the first Minister in the last Najib Cabinet to admit that the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal is not fake news, concoction by his political enemies or international conspiracy to topple Najib but “kleptocracy at its worst” which plunged Malaysia into infamy and ignominy as a global kleptocracy

A Malaysiakini reader asked whether Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein thinks he is a James Bond with a “very particular set of skills” to hunt down 1MDB-linked businessperson Jho Low in China.

Hishammuddin’s offer to track down fugitive financier Jho Low in China to see closure o to the 1MDB case is indeed intriguing.

In the first place, will Jho Low’s return to Malaysia result in the closure of the 1MDB scandal?

What is more intriguing is whether Hishammuddin will be the first Minister in the last Najib Cabinet to admit that the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal is not a fake news, concoction by his political enemies or an international conspiracy to topple Datuk Seri Najib Razak, the sixth Prime Minster of Malaysia, but was “kleptocracy at its worst” and which plunged Malaysia into infamy and ignominy as a global kleptocracy.

If Hishammuddin wants to see a closure to the 1MDB case, and justice done, shouldn’t he be offering proper advice to his cousin, Najib?

Chua Soi Lek – I do not like or hate him. I pity him

Former MCA President Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek can deny until the cows come home and allege that I had twisted his words in claiming that he had likened UMNO-MCA relationship to father-and-son relationship but just ask the Malaysian reading public what conclusions they would draw from Chua’s earlier and subsequent statements.

May be Chua had not expected the intensity of the fallout of his “when your father gives you money, will you ask your dad where the money comes from” statement, but it shows that there are things for even an old hand in politics to learn.

Chua is not stupid or dense, although he is prepared to sound stupid or dense if this will help his cause. Read the rest of this entry »

Hadi has proved himself a disgrace to political Islam as he cannot comply with my 48-hour challenge to substantiate his allegation that DAP discriminates against the East Coast by opposing equal development for Terengganu and Kelantan

PAS President, Datuk Haji Hadi Awang has proved himself a disgrace to political Islam as he cannot comply with my 48-hour challenge to substantiate his allegation that DAP discriminates against the East Coast by opposing equal development for Terengganu and Kelantan.

I am reminded of Saturday’s 47th ABIM annual congress at Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia in Nilai themed “Visi Islam dalam aspirasi Malaysia Baharu” and the keynote address by Professor Datuk Dr. Siddiq Fadzil on “Malaysia Baharu & Kesinambuangan Reformasi Islahiy”, where Dr. Siddiq stressed that the prerequisite for the building of a New Malaysia is to undertake a “human and cultural transformation”.

Most important questions for all MCA leaders are not whether MCA leaving BN but whether MCA dare to denounce Najib and 1MDB scandal for the infamy of Malaysia becoming a global kleptocracy and vow support to Pakatan Harapan to transform Malaysia from global kleptocracy to a model democracy?

MCA must thank its former MCA President, Datuk Chua Soi Lek for crystallising some of the issues which MCA must confront if it is to survive after being reduced from a 7/11 into a ½ political party from the 2013 to the 2018 General Election, i.e. a party with seven MPs and 11 State Assemblymen to a party with one MP and two Assemblymen!

At its height, MCA had 30 MPs and four federal Ministers, but in the 2018 general election, it secured only 639,165 votes (or the support at most 200,000 Chinese voters although it boasts of a membership of more than a million members).

UMNO and all present and former BN parties (including UMNO, MCA and MIC) should return RM470 million to public coffers as they had been misappropriated from 1MDB

I was earlier asked at the 47th ABIM annual congress at Universiti Islam Malaysia in Nilai about the comment of the former MCA President, Datuk Dr. Chua Soi Lek about the linkage between the MCA and the world-infamous MDB scandal, which caused Malaysians whether inside or the country to hold their heads in shame for the past few years when thinking of the infamy and ignominy of Malaysia being regarded as a global kleptocracy.

I have since seen news report that listed the RM470 million from former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s personal banking accounts and which were traceable to 1MDB, which had been diverted to Barisan Nasional parties for the 13th general election, including the following.

Hadi will be a disgrace to political Islam if he cannot substantiate his allegation that DAP discriminates against the East Coast by opposing equal development for Terengganu and Kelantan

I am astonished by the allegation by the PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang that DAP is guilty of “sikap diskriminasi…yang tidak menyokong hasrat kerajaan untuk membawa pembagunan saksama kepada lima negeriu termasuk Terengganu dan Kelantan”.

In a Berita Harian online report which appeared at 4.07 pm yesterday, under the heading “PAS dakwa DAP diskriminasi pembangunan Pantai Timur”, Hadi was quoted as saying that “diskriminasi DAP terhadap hasrat Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk memajukan negeri Pantai Timur begitu ketara”.

The Berita Harian report said:

“Beliau berkata, DAP yang mendominasi kerusi di Pantai Barat dilihat sebagai punca yang boleh menggagalkan usaha Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk berlaku adil dan saksama dalam membawa pembangunan kepada negeri.

“’DAP bersikap tidak jujur terhadap keadilan apabila kepemimpinan parti itu masih berdegil kerana enggan mempedulikan pembangunan di negeri Pantai Timur dan Utara, termasuk Perlis serta Sabah dan Sarawak.

“’PAS menyokong penuh hasrat Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad untuk melaksanakan pembangunan di Pantai Timur dan Utara supaya pembangunan lebih setara dapat dilakukan.

“’PAS juga meminta semua parti komponen Barisan Nasional (BN) yang bersama-sama sebagai pembangkang supaya menyokong hasrat Perdana Menteri untuk melakukan reformasi kerajaan.

“’Namun malang apabila ada parti komponen dalam PH sendiri tidak menyokong dan saya berterus terang parti itu adalah DAP,’ katanya ketika ditemui di kediamannya di Rusila, di sini, hari ini.

“Beliau mengulas reformasi kerajaan yang digariskan dalam Kajian Separuh Penggal Rancangan Malaysia Ke-11 (RMK-11) dibentangkan Dr Mahathir di Parlimen, semalam.

“Abdul Hadi yang juga Ahli Parlimen Marang berkata, contoh paling ketara ialah sikap tidak jujur kepemimpinan DAP apabila tidak bersetuju dengan cadangan Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk mengembalikan royalti minyak sebanyak 20 peratus kepada negeri pengeluar, termasuk Terengganu dan Kelantan.

“Katanya, DAP sebenarnya mewarisi sikap penjajah apabila meninggalkan negeri yang majoriti penduduknya Bumiputera.”

Hadi will be a disgrace to political Islam if he cannot substantiate his allegation that DAP discriminates against the East Coast by opposing equal development for Terengganu and Kelantan.

Lies and falsehoods are as sinful in Islam as in other great religions in the world, and no honourable religious teacher will resort to lies and falsehoods to advance his personal agenda.

I am giving Hadi two days to substantiate his allegation or he will stand convicted in the court of public opinion in Malaysia and the world of resorting to lies and falsehoods to pursue to his political ends.

I do not know whether Hadi’s latest resort to lies and falsehoods is part of the PAS’ latest effort to save some of the “shipwrecked” passengers in Barisan Nasional.

A Malaysiakini report yesterday quoted the PAS Mentri Bensar of Kelantan and PAS Deputy spiritual adviser, Ahmad Yakob, as saying that based on developments before the May 9 general election, PAS foresaw that the “BN ship” would be damaged, and that although PAS does not want to build a new ship to save BN, PAS must save some of the passengers who “were experts in certain fields who could help further the Islamic struggle”.

He said PAS could save and “use the passengers from that ship for the benefit of our struggle”.

I am intrigued by this new political theory of PAS Islamic struggle, and wonder whether they are thinking of the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, the UMNO President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi, the UMNO Deputy President, Mohamad Hassan Vice Presidents Ismail Sabry Yaacob, Mahdzir Khalid, Khaled Nordin, UMNO Secretary-General Tan Sri Annuar Musa, and wider in the Barisan Nasional context, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong and why PAS is so ambivalent and ambiguous about its stand on the 1MDB scandal and the infamy of Malaysia as a global kleptocracy all these years.

Is Wee one of the “shipwrecked” BN leaders to be saved by Hadi and PAS?

This is why I had pointedly asked whether Wee is prepared to redeem MCA’s honour, dignity and self-respect by taking a firm stand in Parliament and outside to denounce Najib and the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal and pledge full support to Pakatan Harapan government to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy to a model democracy.

Or is Wee going the follow the ambivalent and ambiguous stand of Hadi’s PAS?

The most outstanding aspect of the last five months of post-14th General Election, whether in Parliament or outside, is the conspiracy of silence involving all UMNO/Barisan Nasional leaders (including PAS), especially those who had been Ministers in Najib’s Cabinet like Wee Ka Siong, on the greatest and worst corruption scandal in the country’s history – the monstrous international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal which had given Malaysia the infamy, ignominy and iniquity of a global kleptocracy.

In the past five months, Wee Ka Siong had never spoken about the 1MDB issue, nor had any other UMNO/BN/PAS leaders, whether in Parliament or outside, although it is the single biggest global issue confronting Malaysia.

Can Wee explain how many statements he had issued since he had lost his Cabinet position because of the toppling of the Barisan Nasional government in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018, and whether there was a single statement on the greatest national shame in history – the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal?

Is Wee prepared to make a clean breast and tell Malaysians the whole story of MCA’s involvement in the 1MDB scandal as MCA is not an innocent party in the 1MDB scandal.

Former MCA President Datuk Dr. Chua Soi Lek had in November 2015 made a startling revelation about Najib’s RM2.6 billion “donation” scandal in his personal banking accounts before the 13th General Election, when he recollected how Najib had in a BN Supreme Council meeting before the 13th general election made an “unprecedented pledge to fund BN component parties”.

Chua had said:

“I remember clearly. I was the first to thank him.

“I said I have joined politics for more than 20 years and have gone through five general elections. (We) have never received a single sen from BN before.

“So everyone agreed and many thanked him. When the election came, he delivered – he was able to disburse some funds (to the component parties).

Is the present MCA leadership under Wee as the MCA Deputy President prepared to come clean about the whole sordid tale of involvement of MCA in the 1MDB scandal.

This has become all the more pertinent, relevant and pressing in view of the grouses publicly expressed by UMNO leaders over the 45 charges of corruption, criminal breach of trust and money-laundering which had been levelled against the UMNO President and former Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi at the Kuala Lumpur High Court today.

For instance, the UMNO Batu Pahat chief and former Deputy Minister, Mohd Puad Zakarshi, in alleging that the prosecution of Zahid is an attempt by the Pakatan Harapan government to “kill” UMNO, had asked why the no action had been taken against leaders of other Barisan Nasuional or former component parties?

He asked: “There are no MCA, MIC or Gerakan leaders being hauled up and charged. Why? The answer is simple – Mahathir is not interested. To him, all these parties are dead and do not need to be ‘killed’ further. But Umno seems to die hard.”

Will Wee answer Puad.

Or will the answer come from former MCA President, Dr. Chua Soi Lek at the launching of his autobiography, Like Me or Hate Me: Rising from the Political Ashes, in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow?

When will Wee Ka Siong redeem MCA’s honour, dignity and self-respect by taking a firm stand in Parliament to denounce Najib and the 1MDB scandal and pledge full support to Pakatan Harapan government to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy to a model democracy?

MCA is having national party elections early next month.

But when is the sole MCA MP in the Dewan Rakyat, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong, who is aspiring to be the new MCA President, going to redeem MCA’s honour, dignity and self-respect by taking a firm stand in Parliament to denounce former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak for the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal and pledge full support to the Pakatan Harapan government to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy to a model democracy?
