Pakatan Harapan Governmenr in Putrajaya will auction the RM144 million pink diamond necklace to return its proceeds to Malaysian taxpayers

The wife of Prime Minister, Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor herself raised the subject of her diamond collection from the 1MDB scandal.

Speaking to BN women members in Lembah Pantai yesterday, she accused PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli of attempting to trap her husband, caretaker prime minister Najib Abdul Razak, and her over the diamond ring issue.

She said that Rafizi only told “half the story and half-truths”.

Rosmah maintained that she had only viewed the ring but did not purchase it.

She said; “You want to know about the ring? They (critics) said I have a ring but they sometimes say it’s USD8 million, USD16 million, USD24 million and even USD86 million.

“I said you better decide how much my ring is. They talk about things they don’t know. Read the rest of this entry »

The truth of 1MDB scandal is that Najib is trying to create the greatest conundrum in the world by hiding the truth about the 1MDB scandal from Malaysians and the world

The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak slammed DAP for dropping Dr. Tan Seng Giaw simply for speaking the truth on 1MDB.

Two questions come to mind: firstly, how does Najib know that the reason why Seng Giaw is not re-contesting in Kepong is because of 1MDB?

Secondly, it is very rich for Najib to talk about the “truth” of 1MDB, when he is trying to create the greatest conundrum in Malaysia and the world by hiding the truth from Malaysians and the world about the truth of the 1MDB scandal. Read the rest of this entry »

Liow Tiong Lai must explain whether it is official MCA campaign strategy to spread the claim that there is nothing wrong with Najib’s 2.6 billion donation and the 1MDB scandal as Najib had given back the RM2.6 billion to Malaysians

I am shocked to discover during my walkabout with the DAP candidate for Johor State Assembly seat, Tan Hong Pin that MCA propagandists are spreading the version that there is nothing wrong with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s RM2.6 billion donation in his personal banking accounts and the 1MDB scandal, especially as Najib had given back the RM2.6 billion to the people of Malaysia.

This is a monstrous multiple lie and falsehood, which is worse than the lie recently by the Barisan Nasional Strategic Communications Unit when responding to the FaceBook posting by former Cabinet Minister, Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz, asking the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) to clarify if it had known about caretaker prime minister Najib Razak’s infamous RM2.6 billion donation, and how the department had dealt with it at the time.
 
The Barisan Nasional strategic communications team, which is headed by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datu Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan, said that that Najib had returned most, if not all, of the RM2.6 billion donation he received in 2013.
 
This is a double lie, for Najib had not returned most, and definitely not all, of the RM2.6 billion Donation to Saudi royalty he received in 2013. Read the rest of this entry »

Five aspects of the Malay Tsunami which will be the outstanding characteristic of the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018

The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, yesterday cautioned the Malays and bumiputeras against triggering a Malay tsunami in the upcoming 14th General Election as this will jeopardize their rights and interests.

This is a far cry from what Najib said only ten days ago, that that he could not detect a Malay tsunami taking place in the 14GE.

Najib is beginning to learn the truism that “a week is a long time in politics”, and the Polling Day of the 14th General Election on May 9 is still more than three weeks away. Read the rest of this entry »

Will Najib, as Chairman of Barisan Nasional, assume full responsibility for the fake news on the 1MDB scandal by BN and 1MDB in the past few days and turn himself in to the police for having committed offences under the Anti-Fake News Act?

As Chairman of Barisan Nasional, will Datuk Najib Razak assume full responsibility for the fake news on the 1MDB scandal by Barisan Nasional and 1MDB in the past few days and turn himself in to the police for having committed offences under the Anti-Fake News Act, with the draconian penalties on conviction of a maximum of RM500,000 fine, six years jail or both.

For instance, the Barisan Nasional strategic communications team, which is headed by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datu Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan, said that that Najib had returned most, if not all, of the RM2.6 billion donation he received in 2013.

This a double lie, for Najib had not returned most, and definitely not all, of the RM2.6 billion Donation to Saudi royalty he received in 2013.

The BN strategic communications team made this claim in response to the FaceBook posting by former Cabinet Minister, Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz, asking the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) to clarify if it had known about caretaker prime minister Najib Razak’s infamous RM2.6 billion donation, and how the department had dealt with it at the time.

In an open letter to IRB on her Facebook, Rafidah said she had once been asked about the alleged donation from the Arabs, and if the prime minister had ever been taxed on the amount that had been deposited into his private bank accounts.

She said: “I have no idea… My friends and I became very curious. We would like to ask, and can IRB please clarify and explain to the people at large, is the donation given to the prime minister, and transferred into his personal account, taxable?” Read the rest of this entry »

Reminder to Najib: “Unearthly silence” is no option with regard to Rafidah’s FaceBook posting about the 2007 Cabient paper on the privatisation of over 40,000 hectares of prime military land to a three-person company

Rafidah is spot-on. It is not just her, but the 15 million voters and 31 million Malaysians who want to hear from the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, with regard to Rafidah’s FaceBook posting about the 2007 Cabinet paper about the privatisation of over 40,000 hectares of prime military land in the country to a three-person company.

The media conference by the Defence Minister, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, accusing Rafidah of telling three big lies on the Mindef land, studiously avoided the subject as to whether towards the end of 2007, Najib as the then Defence Minister, had presented a Cabinet paper to get approval for the privatisation of more than 40,000 hectres of Mindef land throughout the country to a company owned by three individuals – two men and one woman – and the propsoal involved a lease for four decades!

Hishammuddin’s media conference statement only whetted the apetite of Malaysians to know the truth about the proposed privatisation of more than 40,000 hectares of Mindef land throughout the country.

I fully agree with Rafidah that the Ministry of Defence has no locus standi to reply on behalf of Najijb, who must personally respond.

I wish to remind Najib what I said on Monday – that “unearthly silence” is no option for him, nor is getting others to reply for him, whether Hishammuddin or Mindef, to Rafidah’s FaceBook posting about the the 2007 Cabinet paper on the privatisation of over 40,000 hectares of prime military land to a three-person company.

Let Najib answer directly and specifically to Rafidah’s FaceBook posting or Malaysians can only conclude that what Rafidah revealed in her FaceBook represented the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

“Unearthly silence” is no option for Najib with regard to Rafidah’s FaceBook posting about the privatisation of over 40,000 hectares of prime military land to a three-person company

The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, should know that “unearthly silence” is no option for him with regard to former Cabinet Minister and Wanita UMNO leader, Tan Sri Rafidah Azia’s FaceBook posting about the privatisation of over 40,000 hectares of prime military land in the country to a three-person company.

Rafidah said the proposal was made to the government in 2008 by Najib, who was then the Defence Minister, and was already approved and executed.

The privatisation was based on a lease of four decades and done without open tender.

She added that when the prime lands were revalued, the company stood to reap hefty profits.

Rafidah asked Najib several pertinent questions: the name of the company and the three individuals behind it; details of the privatisation exercise; whether several key ongoing projects such as Bandar Malaysia which is on the former Sungai Besi Air Force base; the Majidee camp relocation; the East Coast Rail Link; the KL-Singapore High-Speed Rail project; a large-scale commercial agriculture project and the sale of the Butterworth Air Force base involve those privatised military land.

Rafidah’s FaceBook query has led to three questions from Brigadier-General (Rtd) Mohamed Arshad Raji, president of Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan (Patriot), who expressed shock of the 300,000 veterans, the current serving military personnel, and the Malaysian public in general at Rafidah’s revelations.

When will Najib answer?

Call on Prime Minister and Parliament Speaker to apologise to all Malaysians for the 13th Parliament’s failure to do anything to clear or purge Malaysia of the infamy, ignominy and iniquity of being regarded worldwide as a global kleptocracy

The 13th Parliament has been dissolved and the country is all set for the 14th General Election.

The country has been long awaiting for this dissolution, from the Sarawak state general elections in 2016, to 2017 and then to 2018; from January this year to February, March and then April; from 11.30 am yesterday for the live telecast of the announcement of dissolution of Parliament by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak to 11.40 a.m; 11.50 am and finally after noon!

The picture that is given is one of great hesitancy and indecisiveness on the part of the sixth Prime Minister to dissolve Parliament for the stakes for Najib is very high. Read the rest of this entry »

Is Arul Kanda’s definition of being professional one of going all over the country and even overseas to tell fake news about the 1MDB scandal?

The 1MDB Chief Executive officer, Arul Kanda Kandasamy’s retort last month that he was a professional and not a politician in response to my challenge to him to stand in the forthcoming general election on the 1MDB ticket instead of organizing roadshows throughout the country on the 1MDB without the 1MDB scandal being answerable to Parliament.

Is Arul Kanda suggesting that the auditors in the Big Three in the auditing world, namely Ernst & Young, KPM and Deloitte, who had quit or ceased to 1MDB from 2009 to 2016, are all not professional enough by him?

Is Arul Kanda’s definition of being professional one of going all over the country and even overseas to tell fake news about the 1MDB scandal as he did in his recent interview with Indonesian magazine, Tempo? Read the rest of this entry »

Call on all Malaysians of the Malaysian Diaspora all over the world to prepare to return on GE 14 Polling Day to cast their vote to Save Malaysia from a failed, rogue and kleptocratic state and for Malaysians to dare to dream again the Malaysian Dream of becoming of world top-class nation

A great event is happening on Friday, not in Malaysia, but 4,600 kilometres away in Seoul.

On Friday, the corruption verdict and sentencing of South Korea’s ousted ex-president Park Geun-hye will be televised live, in a case that could see her jailed for up to 30 years.

The 66-year-old daughter of a former dictator was impeached and arrested in March 2017 over a wide-ranging corruption scandal that exposed shady links between big business and politics, and prompted massive street protests.

The live broadcast is because of the high public interest – the first time a trial has been televised live in South Korea.

Can such a thing happen in Malaysia? Read the rest of this entry »

Has Arul Kanda Kandasamy being paid superlative remuneration as 1MDB Chief Executive Officer to weave fantastic stories and fake news about the 1MDB scandal?

I read the 1MDB’s Chief Executive Officer Arul Kanda Kandasamy’s interview with Indonesia’s news magazine Tempo on the ties between 1MDB and the tycoon-fugive from justice, Jho Low, with amazement.

Arul now claims that Low was actually PetroSaudi Interntional (PSI)’s broker to negotiate a joint venture deal between PSI and 1MDB in September 2009, which I am hearing for the first time.

If so, why why didn’t the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak or anyone in 1MDB or the Malaysian Government make such a claim in the past eight years, and why has such a claim only surfaced now – in April 2018, after the billion-ringgit Equanimity luxury superyacht was impounded by the Indonesian authorites in Bali on the request of FBI in late February?

Has Arul Kanda Kandasamy being paid superlative remuneration as 1MDB Chief Executive Officer to weave fantastic stories and fake news about the 1MDB scandal?

Malaysia must rise again in the international community, respected and admired by the world as a top world-class nation, and not tarnished and scorned as a global kleptocracy doubling up as a truant parliamentary democracy

Today is the ninth anniversary of Datuk Seri Najib Razak as Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Parliament is expected to be dissolved in three days’ time on Friday, April 6, 2018.

All patriotic Malaysians are given an opportunity in the 14th General Election which should be held in a month’s time to ensure that Najib will not be able to mark his 10th anniversary as Prime Minster of Malaysia on this day next year.

Long expose of corruption in Sabah by Swiss magazine last week is further proof of the depth Malaysia has fallen in international esteem and respect after being regarded worldwide as a global kleptocracy

This forum stemmed from the failure of the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib

The Anti-Fake News Bill is in fact a Save Najib from 1MDB Scandal Bill which will criminalise all news about 1MDB scandal in Malaysia available worldwide and punishable as “fake news”

The 13th Parliament is treated with utter contempt in this last parliamentary meeting and the world is watching how a Parliament in a global kleptocracy is reduced into a farce and charade.

Yesterday, the constituency redelineation report of the Election Commission was rammed through Parliament, without giving MPs any time or opportunity whatsoever to get public feedback or seek public consultation on the Election Commission’s new constituency redelineation proposals, which made a mockery of the constitutional principles of one man, one vote, one value and an independent Election Commission which commands the confidence of Malaysians – just to maintain Malaysia as a global kleptocracy.

Today, Parliament is asked to pass the Anti-Fake News Bill which is nothing but a Save Najib from 1MDB Scandal Bill, which will criminalise all news about the 1MDB scandal in Malaysia which is available worldwide and punishable as fake news with excessive penalties of RM500,000 fine, 10 years jail or both.

I have been a victim of fake news and false information for decades, demonizing me as anti-Malay, anti-Islam; cause of May 13 riots in Kuala Lumpur in 1969 when I was never in Kuala Lumpur during the relevant period; agent of foreign powers one and the same time, agent of CIA, M16, KGB and Australian Intelligence; having received RM1 billion from Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad to allow the entry of PPBM into Pakatan Harapan, received RM100 million from Malaysian tycoon Robert Kuok, financed a news portal with RM40 million, received more than a billion ringgit from Israeli sources, and other monstrous and evil lies.

Are the Income Tax department and the Special Branch in Malaysia so inefficient, incompetent and unprofessional to allow such dastardly activities to take place in the past few decades without knowing about them? Read the rest of this entry »

Will Najib be the first to be charged under the Anti-Fake News Act 2018 for the fake news that he has been cleared by Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of any wrongdoing in the 1MDB scandal when it is passed by Parliament?

We have before Parliament a most monstrous and pernicious Anti-Fake News Bill, which undermines the Federal Constitutional guarantees on fundamental liberties in particular Article 10 on freedom of speech and expression, which will destroy the Malaysian Dream of all Malaysians down the generations that Malaysia will mature into a normal democracy.

On top of the epithet of a kleptocracy, Malaysia will be known worldwide as a democracy which had regressed into an autocracy, although retaining the external trappings of a parliamentary democracy.

It is no wonder that the Anti-Fake News Bill 2108 is unanimously regarded by all journalists worth their salt as the biggest ever threat to press freedom once it becomes law.

In fact, even former information minister Tan Sri Rais Yatim is shocked by the wide-ranging implications of the Anti-Fake News Bill, calling on the public to scrutinize it, which is clearly impossible if the Bill is to be rushed to become law before the 14th General Elections as one of the ultra-weapons against the Pakatan Harapan and civil society and to save the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s political life.

Rais has presciently warned of the wide implications of the Anti-Fake News Bill on the government, groups, NGOs and individuals, pointedly asking what would happen if “fake news” came from the government. Read the rest of this entry »

If Chong Eu is still alive today, he would have left the dark side and crossed over to Pakatan Harapan to save Malaysia from the trajectory of a failed, rogue and kleptocratic state

It is quite some time that we have heard from former Penang Chief Minister, Tan Sri Dr. Koh Tsu Koon, but it is a pity that he could not come out of the box of a petty politician to become a statesman.

Koh mentioned that I am 77 years old.

I recently went up to level 65 of Komtar to experience the new Komtar attraction of The Gravityz, and had a scenic view of George Town from a height of 239 metres above ground with only a rope attached to the body.

Koh is very much younger. Perhaps he would like to experience Komtar Gravityz also.

This is not the first time that comments had been made about my age and political relevance. Read the rest of this entry »

Challenge extended to all Cabinet Ministers and BN leaders to show where in the PAC Report on 1MDB is Najib absolved of any wrongdoing in the 1MDB scandal, described by US Attorney-General as “kleptocracy at its worst”?

Yesterday, I emailed the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak to ask him to fix an appointment this week for him to show me and DAP National Publicity Secretary and MP for PJ Utara, Tony Pua, where in the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Report on 1MDB he is absolved of any wrongdoing in the 1MDB scandal which had transformed Malaysia overnight into a global kleptocracy.

Najib’s claim that he had been cleared of any wrongdoing in the PAC report over 1MBD is false and baseless and is the most recent and worst example of the “fake news” concocted and peddled by the Prime Minister and his Cabinet Ministers in the country.

I hereby extend my challenge to all Cabinet Ministers and Barisan Nasional leaders to show where in the PAC Report on 1MDB is Najib absolved of any wrongdoing in the 1MDB scandal, specifically described by the United States Attorney-General Jeff Sessions as “kleptocracy at its worst”?

Najib’s claim that he had been cleared of any wrongdoing in the PAC report over 1MBD is false and baseless, and the latest example of the “fake news” concocted and peddled by those-in-power in Putrajaya.

Or did Najib make an honest mistake, and it was the Auditor-General’s Report on 1MDB (which has been barred from the public because of another one of the extraordinary directives of the Speaker, Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia) which cleared him of any wrongdoing in the 1MDB scandal and not the PAC Report – and if so, I am prepared to accept such an “honest mistake” provided he shows me chapter and verse of such exoneration in the Auditor-General’s Report.

Three questions on 1MDB scandal to MCA’s self-proclaimed anti-corruption champion, MCA Deputy President and Minister Wee Ka Siong

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi hinted at Bagan Datuk today that the 14th General Elections may be held by May 2, which makes two speculation about the dissolution of Parliament very likely, viz:

1. Next Thursday, March 29, after the Dewan Rakyat has passed the most controversial and most undemocratic Election Commission’s 2018 Constituency Redelineation Proposals Final Report on Wednesday on March 28;’

2. On Friday the week after on April 6 after the completion of the present parliamentary meeting on April 5.

A likely Polling Day is April 28 if Saturday continues to chosen, as is traditionally done for previous General Elections. Read the rest of this entry »
