A note from Malaysian expert in Australia Dr. John Funston on 14th General Election

When I visited Canberra in my recent tour of eight Australian and New Zealand cities last month, a came across a note from a Malaysian expert in Austraia, Dr. John Funston, of the Department of Political and Social Change, College of Asia and the Pacific of Australian National University (ANU) whose preliminary studies showed that Malay support for UMNO in Peninsular Malaysia in the 14th General Election was only about 5% higher than support for Pakatan Harapan, and not 15% as had earlier been estimated by Merdeka Centre.

Polls analysis by Merdeka Centre have earlier estimated that some 95% of the Chinese and 70-75% of the Indian voters voted for Pakatan Harapan and a New Malaysia, while only 25 – 30% of the Malays voted for Pakatan Harapan and a New Malaysia.

Why did Najib allow travesties of justice during his premiership and did not re-open investigations into mysterious deaths like that of Altantunya Shaariibuu, Kevin Morais, Hussain Najadi and Teoh Beng Hock?

I was taken aback when I read of the speedy agreement of the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, to my proposal when I campaigned for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in the Port Dickson by-election on Friday, proposing that several mysterious deaths which occurred during Najib’s tenure should be re-opened for investigation, and even for the establishment of special inquiries.

Among these mysterious deaths were the Mongolian model Altatunya Shaariibuu who was killed in a deserted area in Shah Alam on October 18, 2006 and her remains destroyed by C-4 explosives; Deputy Public Prosecutor Kevin Morais who was last seen alive on 4th September 2015 and his body subsequently found in a drum filled with concrete; Hussain Najadi, the AmBank founder and banker who was fatally shot on 29th July 2013 in a parking lot in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur; and Teoh Beng Hock, a DAP political aide to Selangor State Exco Member, Ean Yong Hian Wah who was found dead on 16th July 2009 falling from the 14th floor of Selangor MACC premises while in MACC custody.

Every PAC member should be given a copy of the two books on 1MDB scandal – the “Sarawak Report” and “Billion Dollar Whale” – and every PAC member should have read them by Tuesday for PAC to re-open investigations into 1MDB scandal

Every Public Accounts Committee member should be given a copy of the two books on the 1MDB scandal, viz. “The Sarawak Report – The Inside Story of the 1MDB Expose” by the Sarawak Report editor, Clare Rewcastle Brown and “Billion Dollar Whale – the Man who fooled the Wall Street, Hollywood and the World” by Tom Wright and Bradley Hope, two Wall Street Journal reporters.

Furthermore, all the PAC members should have read the two books on the 1MDB scandal by next Tuesday when they start to carry out Parliament’s directive following an unanimous parliamentary motion last August to “conduct again a detailed investigation on the embezzlement of monies and the scandal with regard to 1MDB and its related companies in order to restore the dignity of the Dewan Rakyat; and that all related information should be made public”.
