Has Ismail Sabri any answer to the query by Mahathir why no action was taken against former Attorney-General Apandi abetting the 1MDB scandal

(Versi BM)

Caretaker Prime Minister Ismail Sabri said in his recent speech in Bagan Datuk that he had instructed the Attorney-General Idrus Harun to take action against former Attorney-General Tommy Thomas under the Official Secrets Act (OSA), defamation law and others and that he had declassified the report on the investigation into Thomas’ book, “My Story: Justice in the Wilderness”, so it can be used as political “bullets” to attack Pakatan Harapan.

A week later, former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad questioned the lack of action taken against former attorney-general Apandi Ali over his abetting of the 1MDB scandal as it was during Ismail Sabri’s time as Prime Minster that Apandi Ali (May 23, 2022) lost his defamation suit against me.

With Rosmah’s conviction and jail sentence, there is more light at the tunnel but the big battle will be the 15th General Election as even the UMNO Secretary-General has agreed that it will be a battle of Rule of Law versus Corruption

With Rosmah Mansor conviction and jail sentence for corruption, a week after Federal Court’s unanimous dismissal of the former Prime Minister’s appeal on Najib’s first corruption trial, there is more light at the end of the tunnel.

There is no guarantee that the “more light at the end of the tunnel” will represent the final victory of the return of the original nation-building principles and policies as stated in the Malaysian Constitution and Rukun Negara, as there is a big battle looming ahead – the 15th General Election.

Zahid’s failure to be a witness in Najib Razak’s SRC International trial to testify that he had met the Arab family who donated cash into Najib’s accounts supports the stand of nine judges that Najib’s Arab donation defence was “untenable” and “unsustainable”

(Versi BM)

UMNO President Zahid Hamidi’s failure to be a witness in former Prime Minister Najib Razak’s SRC International trial to testify that he had met the Arab family who donated cash into Najib’s accounts supports the stand of nine Malaysian judges that Najib’s Arab donation defence was “untenable” and “unsustainable”.

So far, apart from Zahid, nobody has met physically the mysterious Arab donor as even the delegation the then Attorney-General, Apandi Ali sent to Riyadh in 2015 had failed to meet the mysterious and fabled Arab donor.

Can Zahid give a single instance that Najib’s SRC International case is cited in Commonwealth nations as an unfair trial as it is more than one week since Najib was sent to jail

(Versi BM)

Can the UMNO President, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, give a single instance that Najib Razak’s SRC International case is cited in the Commonwealth nations as an unfair trial as it is more than one week since Najib was sent to jail to begin his 12-year imprisonment sentence.

Zahid made this reference in his special address to UMNO delegates last Saturday. Read the rest of this entry »

Is the MACC aware how much money was spent from the 1MDB scandal in the 13th General Election in 2013?

(Versi BM)

The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaffar told Parliament yesterday in reply to a question from DAP MP for Bukit Gelugor Ramkarpal Singh that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is currently reviewing a report on a Minister and two deputy Ministers for alleged misappropriation of funds.

This follows the testimony in June by the UMNO President, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in his own corruption trial that three UMNO MPs quit the party to save themselves from being investigated by the MACC. Read the rest of this entry »

Can Zaid Ibrahim influence a single person to change his or her mind that Najib is not guilty of corruption in the monstrous mega multi-billion dollar 1MDB scandal?

(Versi BM)

I am surprised by Zaid Ibrahim’s new line of thinking but could he influence a single person to change his or her mind that Najib Razak is not guilty of corruption in the monstrous mega multi-billion dollar 1MDB scandal?

I am surprised by Zaid’s change of stand especially as it came after the widely-reported 100-page Azimah judgement in former Attorney-General Mohamad Apandi’s defamation suit against me was made public last week. Read the rest of this entry »

Parliament should hold public hearings to determine how the 13th Parliament was prevented from exposing the 1MDB financial scandal and to ensure that Parliament will never be abused again to cover up financial scandals

(Versi BM)

On Monday, I asked whether former Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi was capable of defending himself against the charge of being the worst Attorney-General in Malaysian history.

On Tuesday, I asked whether he would return the millions of ringgit he had extracted from the government in settlement of his lawsuit which he had instituted against the government for sacking him as Attorney-General, and asked him to explain the “legal, ethical and monetary basis” for acting as lawyer for Jho Loh, one of the key culprits responsible for the monstrous mega multi-billion dollar 1MDB financial scandal.

One consequence of the Azimah judgement is that Apandi should refund the millions he had extracted from the government to settle his lawsuit against the government for terminating his AG contract as he had failed the country as the worst AG in the nation’s history

I said yesterday that the Azimah judgement in Mohamed Apandi’s defamation suit against me has shown that Apandi is the worst Attorney-General in the nation’s history, as up till today, he has failed to account for his multiple failures, like his failure to explain why:

· he absolved and exonerated Najib Razak in the 1MDB scandal; Read the rest of this entry »

Azimah judgement in Apandi defamation case demands a Constitutional Amendment to make the Attorney-General accountable and responsible for his decisions if one-quarter of MPs demands a substantive motion to review his decision In Parliament

The Azimah Omar judgement in the Mohamed Apandi defamation suit against me showed that we have in Apandi the worst Attorney-General in Malaysian history and the need for a Constitutional amendment to make the Attorney-General accountable and responsible for his decisions if one quarter of Members of Parliament demands in a substantive motion to review his decision in Parliament.

For this to become a reality, both the Constitution and the Dewan Rakyat Standing Orders have to be amended. Read the rest of this entry »

Reply to Terence Netto who cannot see the moral fog in the land which had produced the “Malu Apa BossKU” phenomenon – testimony that decades of moral and religious education had been a failure as Malaysians cannot differentiate right from wrong

Veteran journalist Terence Netto wrote “Kit Siang’s lurch into a moral fog” yet he cannot see the moral fog in the land which had produced the “Malu Apa BossKU” phenomenon – testimony that decades of moral and religious education had been a failure as Malaysians cannot differentiate right from wrong.

Rest assured Terence, there is no lurch into a moral fog and no moral relativism on my part. Black is black and white is white, but don’t ignore the vast shades of grey. Read the rest of this entry »

What is Najib’s response in the Azimah judgement in the Apandi case that there is no evidence of the “fabled and fantastic” RM2.6 billion donation from Saudi royalty?

Malaysia has again made dubious history where a former Attorney-General was torn to pieces by the Judiciary as a liar and without credibility on his role as top legal officer of the land.

I have read High Court judge, Justice Azimah binti Omar’s 100-page judgment in the defamation case Mohamad Apandi bin Ali vs Lim Kit Siang, which was made public on Friday. Read the rest of this entry »

The “Malu Apa BossKU” campaign will be mortally crippled, anti-corruption consciousness take a big leap forward and improvement in Malaysia’s Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index (CPI) if Najib admits and condemns 1MDB corruption

After my reply yesterday to Malaysiakini columnist S. Thayaparan who penned “Kit Siang helps Najib launder his reputation”, Thayaparan added a 16-paragraph addendum to his article, which deserves a response.

Reply to Thayaparan: I will never launder Najib’s reputation

(Versi BM)

Yesterday, I issued a short five-paragraph statement which tantamounts to a declaration that I will never launder Najib Razak’s reputation, and it is a pity that S. Thayaparan, who wrote COMMENT piece “Kit Siang helps Najib launder his reputation” today did not read or chose to ignore the statement.

An example that I will never launder Najib’ reputation was what happened in the Johore state general election early this year, where I said that the DAP MP Damansara Tony Pua went too far in attacking the Foon Yew school board of governors but he was right in condemning Najib Razak in using Foon Yew to exculpate his kleptocracy.

AG’s confirmation of Jho Low’s RM1.5 billion offer attempting to settle the 1MDB charges against him is final evidence that the 1MDB scandal exists and not a fairy tale – what more evidence does UMNO, MCA and MIC leaders need?

The Attorney-General Chambers’ (AGC) confirmation that fugitive business person Low Taek Jho had attempted to reach a settlement with the government over the 1MDB charges with a RM1.5 billion offer is final evidence that the 1MDB scandal exists and not a fairy tale.

Questions raised by Chooi Mun Sou’s Memoirs “Malaysia My Home – Quo Vadis” on the future of Malaysia

(Versi BM)

I have read lawyer Chooi Mun Sou’s memoirs “Malaysia My Home – Quo Vadis” which raised various questions on the future of Malaysia. The book is a “must read” for all Malaysians.

Firstly, whether Jalil Ibrahim, the Bank Bumiputra internal auditor who was sent to Hong Kong to be assistant general manager of Bumiputera Malaysia Finance (BMF) to curb the BMF scandal but was murdered at the Regent Hotel, Hong Kong in 1983, had died in vain – with more bumiputras becoming rich, corrupt and involved in mega-billion-dollar scandals like the 1MDB scandal, in the name of “race and country”.
