The day I feel most ashamed as a Malaysian – to find a Malaysian listed internationally among the world’s top kleptocrats who may even be the world’s No. 1 Kleptocrat

Today is the day I feel most ashamed as a Malaysian – to find a Malaysian listed internationally among the world’s top kleptocrats who may even be the world’s No. 1 Kleptocrat!

After viewing again the documentary “The Kleptocrats” which tells “the wild story of the world’s biggest white-collar heist” which followed reporters and law enforcement agents as they track “an audacious scam – one that involves embezzlement, corruption, film stars, politicians and crooks”, I browsed the Internet on sites on kleptocracy and corruption.

As Nazir Razak recounted in the documentary ”The Kleptocrats” that he fell off the chair one morning in July 2015 when he was holidaying and having breakfast in a Los Angeles hotel and picked up a copy of Wall Street Journal which exposed the RM2.6 billion deposit in Najib Razak’s personal banking accounts, I almost fell off the chair when I read the Wikipedia page on “kleptocracy”, where Najib was listed among the world’s 11 top kleptocrats, and may even be the world’s No. 1 Kleptocrat when all the facts and truth about the 1MDB scandal and all the other scandals in his regime are revealed.

According to Wikipedia, which is used by netizens worldwide, Najb is in the company of the 10 leading kleptocrats of the last three decades compiled by Transparency International in 2004, viz: former Indonesian President Suharto, former Philippines President Ferdinand Marcos, Former Zairian President Mobutu Sese Seko, Former Nigerian head of state Sani Abacha, former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, Former Haitian President, Jean-Claude Duvalier, former Ukranian Prime Minister Paylo Lazarenko, former Nicaraguan President Arnold Aleman and former Philippines President Joseph Estrada.

Another week of shame for Malaysia – worldwide advertisement of 1MDB scandal as “the biggest fraud of the century” with emphasis on “true crime” and “current affairs” to promote documentary “The Kleptocrats”

It has been another week of shame for Malaysia – as in the past week, Malaysia has been advertised internationally as the country which is home to “the biggest fraud of the century” because of the 1MDB scandal with the emphasis on “true crime” and “current affairs” to promote the documentary “The Kleptocrats”.

Such an advertisement on the “THE MULTI-BILLION $CANDAL THAT SHOOK HOLLYWOOD AND THE WORLD” appears in the international media, whether South China Morning Post in Hong Kong, Straits Times in Singapore or Sydney Morning Herald Australia, and many others.

In Malaysia, the criminal trial of the former Prime Minister, Najib Razak, over 25 charges of abuse of power and money laundering of RM2.28 billion from 1MDB funds, facing up to 20 years in jail if convicted, entered into its 16th day in the High Court of Kuala Lumpur yesterday while another High Court judge has fixed Nov 11 to announce the verdict whether Najib’s defence on seven charges of abuse of power, corruption and money-laundering involving RM42 million of funds from SRC International after 58 days of prosecution case and 57 witnesses needs to be called.

It is not exactly a time when Malaysians came hold their heads high in the world, although there is a silver lining in the dark clouds – as Malaysia is probably the only country in the world which had toppled a kleptocratic regime by peaceful and democratic means on May 9, 2018 and put the former Prime Minister and some of his kleptocratic cronies on trial.

Another must-see film for Malaysians – “The Kleptocrats’: sombre reminder that May 9, 2018 saved Malaysia from becoming Venezuela of South-east Asia

Two films every Malaysian should see are “M for Malaysia” and “The Kleptocrats -Billion Dollar Whale” to learn or to be reminded of the existential threat Malaysia faced during the 14th General Election.

If there had been no historic and miraculous change of government on May 9, 2018, Malaysia would have continued in the trajectory pursued for close to a decade to become a failed, rogue and kleptocratic state, and no power on earth could have saved future generations of Malaysians, regardless of race or religion, from the status of serfs in having to repay the tens and hundreds of billions of debt conceived and implemented by “maestros” of unimaginable scams and money-laundering schemes to exploit the loopholes of the international banking and financial system.

If there had been no change of government, the re-elected Prime Minister would have made Malaysia the Venezuela of South-east Asia and the Sick Man of Asia.

Venezuela is in the thick of a terrible political, socio-economic and humanitarian crisis. Once one of the 20 richest countries in the world and the richest in Latin America with free education and free medical services for her citizens, it is now poor, backward, broken and bankrupt state, with over 10 per cent of Venezuelans (3.4 million) having left the country in despair.

The humanitarian crisis in Venezuela has affected the life of the average Venezuelan on all levels. By 2017, hunger had escalated to the point where almost seventy-five percent of the population had lost an average of over 8 kg (over 19 lbs) in weight, and more than half did not have enough income to meet their basic food needs.

Malaysia must never allow kleptocracy to make a come-back, whether in its old form or in the guise of klepto-theocracy or klepto-democracy

All Malaysians should heed the call by Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah on his installation as Yang di Pertuan Agong to refrain from inciting misunderstanding by raising matters that can undermine and destroy harmony in the country.

Klepto-theocracy which misuses Islam to support thievery, corruption, intolerance, bigotry, lies and falsehoods is one example of a campaign which is against the call by the Yang di Pertuan Agong to Malaysians to ensure that unity and harmony are the pillars and strength of the nation.

Sultan Abdullah rightly warned that “Playing with fire will burn not only oneself but also the whole village”.

Opposition parties should compete with Pakatan Harapan parties as to who have the best answer to the challenge of building Malaysia into a top world-class nation where there is unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity and respected by the international community, instead of inciting suspicion, distrust and hatred among Malaysians, pitting race against race, religion against religion and virtually regarded as an outcast by the world community.

It is most regrettable that even up to now, there are important personalities and opposition parties who still do not feel contrite or remorseful that in the past few years, Malaysia had been the object of international ridicule and contempt for becoming a global kleptocracy, to the extent that the United States Department of Justice (DoJ) had filed the largest kleptocratic litigation to forfeit US$1.7 billion out of US$4.5 billion of 1MDB-linked assets, a scandal which the United States Attorney-General Jeff Sessions had condemned in an international forum as “kleptocracy at its worst”!

Is it possible to make Islamic civilisation great again based on klepto-theocracy which misuses Islam to peddle lies, falsehoods, distrust, suspicion, hatred and supports thievery and corruption?

When I read the report of the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad saying in Ankara on the need for Muslim countries like Malaysia, Turkey and Pakistan to pool their resources to make Islamic civilisation great again, the question that immediately struck me was:

Is it possible to make Islamic civilisation great again based on klepto-theocracy which misuses Islam to peddle lies, falsehoods, distrust, suspicion, hatred and which supports thievery and corruption?

This thought was prompted by another report which I had read – the reply of the UMNO President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi to PKR President Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim which again confirmed Mahathir’s earlier remark about UMNO leaders becoming “dumb and dumber” over the years.

Zahid had earlier insinuated that Mahathir was my stooge and was only doing my bidding. In his reply to Anwar, he insinuated that Anwar has become my stooge. This would mean I have two stooges – Mahathir and Anwar.

How “dumb and dumber” can an UMNO leader get?

Can Islamic civilisation become great again based on such klepto-theocracy, which only peddle lies, falsehoods, distrust, suspicion, hatred and which supports thievery and corruption. Read the rest of this entry »

Thanks again to Zahid for latest proof of the meaning of “klepto-theocracy” – the political alliance based on misuse of Islam to support thievery, corruption, intolerance, bigotry, lies and falsehoods

I must thank the UMNO President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi for the latest proof of the meaning of “klepto-theocracy” – the political alliance based on misuse of Islam to support thievery, corruption, intolerance, bigotry, lies and falsehoods.

After the UMNO Supreme Council meeting yesterday, Zahid said that UMNO will not “open the door” of negotiation and co-operation with any party that has a relationship with DAP.

He said: “There will be no negotiation any party in the Pakatan Harapan coalition as long as they share the power with DAP.”

The question Zahid should ask is who will co-operate with a party which is headed by a President who is making history in having a total of 87 criminal charges related to corruption?

Or the further question, who will co-operate with a political coalition whose advisor was the person who had brought infamy, ignominy and iniquity to Malaysia because of the international 1MDB scandal, condemned in an international conference by the US Attorney-General as “kleptocracy at its worst” and who is on trial for 42 criminal charges relating to corruption, abuse of power and money-laundering?

Klepto-theocracy is a political doctrine in Malaysia which misuses Islam to support thievery, corruption, intolerance, bigotry, lies and falsehoods

I have been asked what is the meaning of this term “klepto-theocracy” which I been using for the past week.

In a nutshell, klepto-theocracy is a political doctrine in Malaysia which misuses Islam to support thievery, corruption, intolerance, bigotry, lies and falsehoods.

A most recent example of this new political hypocrisy is about the declaration of assets, with the PAS, UMNO, MCA and MIC MPs in both Houses of Parliament opposing the motion requiring MPs to publicly declare their assets.

The PAS President said declaring assets is a communist, socialist concept that may have been dreamt up by DAP while the PAS Deputy President said it was unIslamic to declare assets, until it was pointed out that the latter had in 2015 dared the then Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to declare his assets!

The misuse of Islam to support kleptocracy was best illustrated over the ICERD issue. Read the rest of this entry »

I have instructed my lawyers to accept service of Apandi’s suit giving Malaysians at last the opportunity to get answers why Apandi had been totally inactive as Malaysian Attorney-General after the US DoJ’s largest kleptocratic forfeiture suit over 1MDB scandal

I have instructed my lawyers, Ramkarpal Singh of Karpal Singh & Co. to accept service of the RM10 million plus defamation suit by the former Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali.

When I read of Apandi’s suit in media yesterday, I have not received Apandi’s statement of claim.

Apandi is asking for RM10 million damages, as well as other damages, for one line in my statement of May 6 during the Sandakan by-election this year where I had asked him to explain why he “aided and abetted” in the 1MDB scandal.

I will contest Apandi’s suit, but it is a matter of relief that Malaysians now will have the opportunity to get answers why Apandi had been totally inactive as Malaysian Attorney-General after the US Department of Justice’s (DoJ) filed its largest kleptocratic forfeiture suit (US$1.7 billion out of US$4.5 billion 1MDB-linked assets) over the 1MDB scandal.

Three events in the past five days are foremost in my mind when I think of Apandi’s suit. Read the rest of this entry »

Crying national shame that while the world is trying to get to the bottom  of the heinous global  1MDB scandal, there are still Malaysian leaders  trying to keep the veil on the 1MDB scandal and prevent open scrutiny of the scandal

It is a crying national shame that while the world is trying to get to the bottom of the heinous global 1MDB scandal, described by United States Attorney-General Jeff Sessions as “kleptocracy at is worst”, there are still
Malaysian leaders trying to keep the veil on the 1MDB scandal and prevent an open scrutiny of the scandal.

Last week, it was reported that Germany’s Deutsche Bank was being investigated by the US Department of Justice (DoJ) for its work with 1Malaysia Development Bhd, including helping
the state investor raise US$1.2 billion (RM4.95 billion) in 2014.

The probe into Deutsche Bank’s alleged
corruption and money-laundering in connection with the 1MDB scandal  is being assisted by former Goldman Sachs banker Tim Leissner, who last year pleaded guilty for his role in the massive scandal.

Tickled by Annuar Musa’s teaser – why not Najib? Kit Siang lost elections but remains DAP adviser

I am quite tickled by the teaser from the UMNO Secretary-General Annuar Musa – Why not Najib? Kit Siang lost elections but remains DAP adviser!

It has only confirmed that Annuar Musa is not a very bright chap.

In defending Najib Abdul Razak’s appointment as chairperson of the BN advisory board, Annuar said the embattled former premier is very much an asset to the coalition.

He said although BN lost the 14th general election under Najib, it does not mean he does not have useful experience to share.

He said: “We have to remember that Lim Kit Siang has been DAP adviser for many years. How many times has DAP lost in the past 13 general elections? Lim stayed on as their adviser.

“So this is a non-issue. Just because someone has lost once, this doesn’t mean the person is disqualified from becoming an adviser.”

Clearly, it is asking too much to expect Annual Musa to have the IQ to understand that I had never led DAP to any electoral loss because I was a global kleptocrat, as was Najib’s case. Read the rest of this entry »

Lenin, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il-Sung and Fidel Castro will turn in their graves if they know of Hadi’s suggestion that socialists like Jawaharlal Nehru, Nelson Mandela, Clement Attlee, Harold Wilson, Willy Brandit, Olof Palme, Robert Hawke, Norman Kirk should join the pantheon of communist leaders

Berguling Lenin, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il-Sung, dan Fidel Castro di dalam kubur mereka mendengar kenyataan Hadi yang menyamakan sosialis seperti Jawaharlal Nehru, Nelson Mandela, Clement Attlee, Harold Wilson, Willy Brandt, Olof Palme, Robert Hawke, Norman Kirk dengan pemimpin-pemimpin gerakan komunisme

Berguling pemimpin komunis seperti Lenin, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il-Sung, dan Fidel Castro di dalam kubur mereka membaca kenyataaan Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Hadi Awang yang menyamakan mereka dengan sosialis seperti Jawaharlel Nehru (India), Nelson Mandela (Afrika Selatan), Clement Attlee dan Harold Wilson (UK), Willy Brandt (German Barat), Olof Palme (Sweden), Robert Hawke (Australia), dan Norman Kirk (New Zealand).

Takkanlah Presiden PAS sebegitu jahil sekali sehingga tidak dapat membezakan dua kumpulan pemimpin yang berbeza ini sehingga boleh menuduh yang pengisytiharan harta itu adalah satu konsep komunis dan sosialis yang dirancang oleh DAP.

Seperti yang telah dikatakan oleh Presiden DAPSY Saudara Howard Lee; Mesir, Maghribi, Palestin, Yaman, dan Libya semuanya adalah negara yang majoriti penduduknya beragama Islam dan pada masa yang sama mempunyai peruntukan yang mewajibkan pengisytiharan harta. Adakah negara-negara ini komunis ataupun sosialis?

Saya yakin Hadi tidak akan mengatakan yang negara-negara ini juga telah dipengaruhi DAP ataupun kini bukan lagi sebuah negara Islam kerana telah menjadi sebuah negara komunis ataupun sosialis — jelaslah ini menjadi bukti kecuaian Hadi terhadap kebenaran sesuatu fakta yang menjadi ciri utama kepimpinan Hadi dalam PAS dan pakatan PAS-UMNO/BN.

Thunderous silence of Najib’s Ministers, MPs and Barisan Nasional leaders about their complicity in the monstrous 1MDB scandal from 2015-2018 not surprising, but their continued silence after May 9, 2018 is most damning, unforgivable and destroy all their credibility to represent the people and nation

The thunderous silence of former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s Ministers, MPs and Barisan Nasional leaders about their complicity in the monstrous global 1MDB scandal from 2015-2018 is not surprising, but their continued silence after May 9, 2018 is most damning, unforgivable and destroy all their credibility to represent the people and nation.

Yesterday, I asked the UMNO Secretary-General Datuk Seri Annuar Musa whether the UMNO President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi, UMNO Deputy President Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan as well as the UMNO Supreme Council are going to wear sackcloth to seek the forgiveness of Malaysians for their complicity in the monstrous global 1MDB scandal.

I also asked why all the former Ministers, MPs and BN leaders of the former Najib government had not apologised to the nation in the past 14 months for pretending that there was no 1MDB scandal under the Najib premiership – when the whole world regarded Malaysia under Najib was a global kleptocracy because of 1MDB scandal?

I am not surprised by their continued silence, which is not only cowardly, craven but even more serious, an act of treachery against the nation.

There are those with political axes to grind who are trying to influence public opinion by putting forth the argument that with the change of government in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018, we should now forget about the 1MDB scandal so as to allow the courts to decide the guilt or otherwise of Malaysia’s global kleptocrats and focus on what the Pakatan Harapan government can do to fulfil its election pledge of a New Malaysia.

Why Annuar Musa has not apologised for UMNO’s complicity in monstrous global 1MDB scandal before 2014 although he has admitted it?

The current UMNO secretary-general Datuk Seri Annuar Musa should explain why he has not apologised for UMNO’s complicity in the monstrous global 1MDB scandal before 2014 although he has admitted to it?

Annuar made this admission when he claimed that UMNO’s current frozen accounts had nothing to do with 1MDB as the funds from the former UYMNO President, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, were “used up by 2014″.

Is Annuar’s admission of UMNO complicity in the 1MDB scandal an official admission?

Has Annuar received the consent of the UMNO President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi, the UMNO Deputy President, Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan and the UMNO Supreme Council to make this admission of UMNO’s complicity in the monstrous global 1MDB scandal?

When will all former Ministers, MPs and BN leaders of the former Najib government apologise to the nation for pretending that there was no 1MDB scandal – when the whole world regarded Malaysia under Najib was a global kleptocracy because of 1MDB scandal?

Bilakah semua bekas menteri, ahli parlimen, dan pimpinan Barisan Nasional daripada zaman pemerintahan Najib akan memohon maaf ke atas perbuatan mereka — yang berpura-pura seakan-akan skandal 1MDB tidak pernah berlaku sedangkan seluruh dunia melihat Malaysia sebagai sebuah kleptokrasi global akibat 1MDB

Pihak Berkuasa Hong Kong baru-baru ini menyertai beberapa negara lain dalam mengambil tindakan terhadap Tim Leissner, bekas pegawai bank Goldman Sachs atas sebab-sebab berkaitan dengan skandal 1MDB.

Suruhanjaya Sekuriti dan Niaga Hadapan Hong Kong — biasanya dikenali sebagai Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) — telah mengharamkan Tim Leissner daripada menyertai industri perbankan untuk seumur hidup kerana penglibatan beliau dalam skandal 1MDB.

SFC berkata: “Pihak SFC mendapati tindakan Leissner (berkaitan 1MDB) menunjukkan satu peribadi yang serba kurang dalam kejujuran dan integriti dan perkara ini menimbulkan persoalan mengenai kesesuaian untuk beliau diberikan lesen perbankan.”

Merujuk kepada kenyataan SFC, Leissner telah mengaku bersalah terhadap tuduhan berkonspirasi untuk melakukan pengubahan wang haram dan pelanggaran Akta Salahlaku Rasuah Luar Negara (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act) yang dibawakan oleh Jabatan Kehakiman Amerika Syarikat (US DOJ).

SFC juga mendakwa Leissner telah mengaku bahawa di antara tahun 2009 sehingga 2014; beliau berkonspirasi dengan beberapa individu lain untuk mendapatkan urusniaga daripada 1MDB untuk Goldman Sachs melalui janji untuk memberikan rasuah dan pembayaran rasuah kepada pegawai kerajaan di Malaysia dan Abu Dhabi; menyeleweng dana daripada 1MDB untuk kepentingan peribadi beliau dan beberapa individu lain; melakukan pengubahan haram wang rasuah dan hasil penyelewengan wang 1MDB; dan memintas prosedur dalaman Goldman Sachs yang bertujuan untuk mengesan salahlaku.

What has Tengku Razaleigh done to stop the 1MDB scandal during the Najib premiership and what has he done in the past 14 months to cleanse UMNO of global kleptocracy?

Apakah tindakan Tengku Razaleigh untuk menghentikan skandal 1MDB pada waktu pemerintahan Najib dan apakah yang sudah beliau lakukan dalam 14 bulan yang lepas untuk membersihkan UMNO daripada unsur kleptokrasi

Di Rumah Terbuka Aidilfitri Meraikan Penggiat Seni dan Sastera yang dianjurkan secara bersama oleh Pak Samad dan saya di Sentul malam tadi, saya telah diminta oleh pihak media untuk memberikan komen mengenai seruan Tengku Razaleigh untuk kerajaan melaksanakan cadangan-cadangan Suruhanjaya DiRaja mengenai Urusan Perdagangan Matawang Asing Bank Negara pada tahun 90an.

Saya telah menolak permintaan tersebut memandangkan majlis ini adalah satu majlis untuk meraikan seni dan sastera dan adalah tidak bersesuaian untuk bercakap mengenai perkara lain dalam majlis ini.

Majlis ini telah dihadiri oleh empat sasterawan negara — selain daripada Pak Samad (Datuk Seri Abdul Samad bin Mohamad Said), turut dihadiri oleh Dato Dr Ahmad Khamal Abdullah, Dato Dr Zurinah Hasan, dan Professor Emeritus Dr Mohd Haji Salleh.

Majlis seni dan sastera yang pertama kali dianjurkan oleh DAP ini turut dihadiri oleh Ketua Pengarah DBP, Datuk Ahmad Sallehudin, Pengerusi Lembaga Pengarah dan Pengurus Besar ITBM, Encik Mazmi Bin Kamal dan Encik Sakri Abdullah, Presiden dan Setiausaha Agung PENA, Dr Mohamad Saleeh Rahamad dan Saifulizan Yahaya, dan Ahli Panel Penasihat FINAS, Bront Palarae.

Timbalan Menteri Belia dan Sukan, Steven Sim telah memulakan acara dengan membacakan dua puisi. Wakil-wakil rakyat DAP lain yang turut hadir memeriahkan majlis ini adalah Exco Negeri Johor, Sheikh Omar Ali, Ahli Parlimen Kluang, Wong Shu Qi, Ahli Parlimen Sandakan, Vivien Wong, Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri Selangor, Edry Faizal (Dusun Tua) dan Lim Yi Wei (Kampung Tunku, Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri Pulau Pinang, Syerleena Binti Abdul Rashid (Seri Delima), dan Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri Pahang, Young Shefura Binti Othman (Ketari).

What a joke – a global kleptocrat inviting me to join UMNO when UMNO has not cleansed itself of “global kleptocracy”!

What a joke – a global kleptocrat inviting me to join UMNO when UMNO has not cleansed itself of “global kleptocracy”?

Can Najib Razak explain whether UMNO had cleansed itself of global kleptocracy with Ahmad Zahid Hamid as the new President of UMNO?

How can this be the case when Zahid is facing 87 charges related to corruption, money-laundering, bribery and criminal breach of trust, 45 charges more than what Najib himself is facing, with Zahid creating a new national record as a Malaysian facing the most number of corruption charges in our courts.

Or had the previous Acting UMNO President Mohamad Hassan embarked on cleansing UMNO of “global kleptocracy” in the past six months when Zahid went on garden leave?

Why did Zahid go on “garden leave” as UMNO President for the last six months? Read the rest of this entry »

RM270 million 1MDB civil forfeiture suits against 41 individuals and groups a good and great start by Latheefa Koya as MACC Chief

The RM270 million 1MDB civil forfeiture suits against 41 local individuals and groups is a good and great start by Latheefa Koya as Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief.

This is the largest forfeiture action in the nation’s history, caused by the dispersal to the 41 respondents from former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s personal AmBank account.

The immediate response by the acting UMNO president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan that UMNO will fight the civil forfeiture suits in court is showing to Malaysians the real kleptocratic colours of UMNO, that the curse of kleptocracy is not just the transgressions of one person but the fault of the entire UMNO leadership – and even the previous Cabinet!

Is Mohamad Hassan and the UMNO leadership claiming that the 1MDB scandal, which is being investigated in 10 countries, and for which banks in foreign countries had been fined and closed and bankers in foreign countries had been convicted of money-laundering crimes and imprisoned, was just a figment of imagination of the MACC?

As out of the RM270 million civil forfeiture suits, RM212 million (78.5 percent) was sought from Umno divisions, is the UMNO leadership prepared now to admit to the reality of the 1MDB scandal which made Malaysia a global kleptocracy and declare how it is prepared to co-operate with the anti-corruption authorities to purge Malaysia of the infamy, ignominy and iniquity of the 1MDB global kleptocracy?

Former Attorney-General Apandi and former Inspector-General of Police Khalid should be investigated for their role in the “Week of Long Knives July/August 2015” to establish the important principle of the supremacy of Rukunegara which must be respected by all key top officials

The former Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamad Apandi Ali and the former Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar should be investigated for the role in the infamous “Week of Long Knives July/August 2015” to establish the important principle of the supremacy of Rukunegara which must be respected by all key top officials.

Three key principles of Rukunegara, namely loyalty to King and Country, the supremacy of the Constitution and the Rule of Law, were undermined and assaulted in the “Week of Long Knives July/August 2015”, causing a great damage to the system of parliamentary democracy in the country.

This was the only occasion when the 2012 amendment to the Penal Code to create a new section 124B to a create a new offence that anyone carrying out , by any means, directly or indirectly, “any activity detrimental to parliamentary democracy” could be jailed to 20 years would have applied on all fours, but instead of invocation of Section 124B of the Penal Code against the principals undermining parliamentary democracy, these principals were allowed to “run riot’ in their conspiracy to undermine the supremacy of Rukunegara.

It is the undermining of these key Rukunegara principles during the “Week of Long Knives July/August 2015” which led to Malaysia suffering the infamy, ignominy and iniquity of being condemned by the world as a global kleptocracy.

Malaysia must be respected by the world for our integrity but in those infamous years, we were condemned by the world for our kleptocracy. Read the rest of this entry »

A MACC report had been lodged by a former anti-corruption agency officer in January 2016 against Apandi as the then Attorney-General for clearing the then Prime Minister Najib of corruption charges but to date, no action had been taken

It has come to my knowledge that a former anti-corruption agency officer had lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in January 2016 against the then Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamad Apandi Ali for clearing the then Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak of corruption charges but to date, no action had been taken.

This former anti-corruption agency officer had lodged a report with the MACC against Apandi after he cleared Najib of corruption charges which had been recommended by the MACC and agreed upon by the former Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail for the Penal Code offence of criminal misappropriation of public funds.

His report had been accepted by the MACC and registered. Unfortunately it was never fully investigated by the MACC.

This in itself is an offence under section 217 Penal Code which says that, any public servant who is statutorily bound to perform a public duty and fails to do so intending to protect or save any person from punishment or forfeiture of property commits an offence. And Section 7 of the MACC Act makes it a statutory duty for any MACC officer to receive any report of the commission of an offence and investigate such report.

This former anti-corruption agency officer said that Apandi’s press conference on 26th January 2016 in his capacity as Attorney-General clearing Najib of any corruption offence, which was not only against the recommendation of the MACC but also tantamount to revoking the decision of former Attorney-General Gani Patail, amounted to a gross abuse of power and conflict of interest since the very person he cleared of the corruption charges was the same person who appointed him to the office of AG.

Twelve issues which should be dealt with by a White Paper on “Black Tuesday of 28.7.2015 and the Week of Long Knives in July/August 2015”

There are at least twelve issues which should be dealt with by a White Paper on “Black Tuesday of 28.7.2015 and the Week of Long Knives in July/August 2015”, viz:

1. Who were the masterminds of the Black Tuesday of 28.7.2015 and the “Week of Long Knives of July/August 2015” apart from the then Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

2. Who was behind the website that appeared on Black Tuesday on July 28, 2015 marking the Week of Long Knives in July/August 2015 with the article headlined “Ops Lalang 2015: Special Branch leads investigation into conspirators”, naming 13 persons in an international conspiracy to topple the elected government of Malaysia and marked “to be investigated under Section 124 of the penal code which carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison” and to institute a regime of terror among top political and government leaders that they would be penalised if they do not toe the line?

A menacing article headlined “Special Branch Broadens Covert Investigation: Enhanced Interrogation Techniques Green Lit” dated 31st July reported:

“Sources have indicated to us that the scope of the investigation into the 13 conspirators has been broadened to include all those involved whether directly or indirectly. All employees at the Attorney General’s office, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) and even members of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) will be made subject to military style interrogation techniques that it is understood will include polygraph tests in order to determine their level of involvement.”

The article also carried gruesome pictures of the “enhancled interrogation techniques” to “detects lies by monitoring a person’s physiological characteristics such as a person’s pulse and breathing rates” stating that “Modern polygraph tests are scarily accurate” involving “inhumane psychological pressure” which were used by the Bush administration against “terrorist suspects” – pointedly raising questions whether the techniques constitute torture.
