Najib is the most malignant political force in the history of Malaysia – global kleptocrat, habitual liar and greatest threat to the vision of a united, progressive and prosperous Malaysia

Najib adalah salah satu kuasa politik yang paling merosakkan dalam sejarah Malaysia — seorang kleptokrat global, kaki penipu, dan ancaman terbesar kepada satu visi Malaysia yang bersatu, progresif, dan makmur

Apabila bekas Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak mencabar saya untuk berdebat dengannya di dalam satu temubual dengan Free Malaysia Today pada hari Selasa yang lepas, perkara pertama yang terlintas pada fikiran saya adalah; patutkah seseorang itu berdebat dengan seorang kleptokrat yang mempunyai penyakit suka menipu ataupun memang kaki penipu.

Saya telah menambah, sekira berlakunya perdebatan ini, topik yang terbaik adalah “Bagaimana Malaysia terjerumus menjadi sebuah kleptokrasi global dan bagaimana kita boleh kembali menjadi sebuah negara terulung yang berintegriti”.

Najib kelihatan tidak kisah dipanggil seorang kleptokrat dan kaki menipu dan bersetuju secara serta merta dengan topik tersebut, tetapi menambah secara licik: “Saya terima tajuk disarankannya tetapi seadilnya dan semoleknya kita perlu bincangkan topik-topik lain semasa debat ini.”

Menjawab cabaran ini, saya telah melantik Setiausaha Politik saya, Syahredzan bin Johan dan Ahmad Faiz Mustafa, Pegawai Perhubungan Parlimen saya untuk berurusan dengan pegawai Najib bagi memuktamadkan butir-butir perdebatan ini untuk dilangsungkan selepas Hari Raya. Read the rest of this entry »

Is Najib a pathological or habitual liar? Is he prepared to debate “How Malaysia became a global kleptocracy and how we can become a leading nation of integrity”?

Adakah Najib seorang yang mempunyai penyakit suka berbohong atau sememangnya seorang kaki pembohong? Adakah dia bersedia untuk berdebat mengenai topik “Bagaimana Malaysia terjerumus menjadi sebuah kleptokrasi global dan bagaimana kita boleh kembali menjadi sebuah negara terulung yang berintegriti”?

Adakah bekas Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak seorang yang mempunyai penyakit suka berbohong atau sememangnya seorang kaki pembohong?

Dalam wawancara dengan Free Malaysia Today hari ini pun, tidak ada lain yang dibuatnya selain berbohong. Najib mendakwa beliau telah menjawab segala persoalan yang dibangkitkan saya dalam kenyataan media saya, yang mana adalah pembohongan yang nyata.

Adakah beliau sudah menjawab persoalan saya, antaranya yang telah dibangkitkan saya dalam kenyataan saya di Sandakan pada 8 Mei lalu mengenai sama ada lawatan kempen “Malu Apa Bossku” beliau untuk membantu kempen PBS dalam Pilihan Raya Kecil Sandakan adalah wadah terbaik untuk beliau menjelaskan mengapa beliau masih terus-menerus menafikan kewujudan skandal 1MDB, meskipun sejak empat tahun lalu, begitu banyak laporan berita mengenainya dikeluarkan oleh media antarabangsa, pelbagai buku dan filem telah diterbitkan mengenai skandal 1MDB sementara 10 negara lain telah melancarkan siasatan ke atas skandal terbabit?

Daim is half-right – Pakatan Harapan should not dance to the tune of Najib but should compel Najib to dance to the tune of Pakatan Harapan narrative

Tun Daim Zainuddin is half-right – Pakatan Harapan should not dance to the tune of former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, but should compel Najib to dance to the tune of the Pakatan Harapan narrative.

I do not agree with Daim that Pakatan Harapan should forget about Najib, as the former Prime Minister is the de facto leader not only of UMNO-PAS axis, but the unofficial opposition combination which included MCA and MIC, but also PBS and the other Sabah other opposition parties and GPS in Sarawak.

The landslide 11,52-vote majority victory of DAP, Pakatan Harapan and Warisan in the Sandakan by-election on May 11 is not only a debacle for PBS, but of the combined Oppostion and Najib’s “Malu Apa Bossku” narrative, as PBS was only a digit of Najib’s great gameplan to ensure that the Pakatan Harapan Government would at most be a one-term government and that Najib’s travails would end by the 15th General Election and he could escape life in Sungai Buloh Prison.

A commentator had described the PBS candidate Linda Tsen as a reluctant candidate and that she had political baggage. I believe that PBS was an even greater reluctant political party to field a candidate in the Sandakan by-election as PBS had even greater political baggage after singly ruling for 10 years and as part of Barisan Nasional for 16 years.

“Malu Apa Bossku” campaign violates Rukunegara, a challenge to National Anti-Corruption Plan 2019-2023 and obstacle to the national mission to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy into a leading nation of integrity

Kempen “Malu Apa Bossku” bertentangan dengan Rukunegara, mencabar Pelan Anti Rasuah Kebangsaan 2019-2023, dan halangan kepada misi transformasi negara daripada satu kleptokrasi global kepada negara berintegriti yang terulung

Sejak beberapa bulan sebelum pilihanraya kecil Sandakan pada 11 Mei yang lalu, cybertrooper bekas Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak telah bertungkus lumus menjaja satu tema baru — cukuplah bercakap mengenai skandal 1MDB dan kleptokrasi Najib, Pilihanraya ke-14 sudah selesai dan biarkan mahkamah yang tentukan sama ada Najib bersalah atau tidak, sebaliknya, mari lihat apa yang kerajaan PH telah berjaya laksanakan untuk menurunkan kos sara hidup dan mereformasikan institusi negara.

Januari tahun ini, cybertrooper Najib telah memulakan kempen “Malu Apa Bossku” tanpa sekelumit rasa malu sekalipun dan yang malang sekalinya kempen ini telah berjaya menawan sebahagian tertentu rakyat Malaysia. Lantas membolehkan gabungan UMNO-PAS, dengan sokongan belakang tabir MCA dan MIC di semenanjung Malaysia, PBS dan parti pembangkang lain di Sabah, dan GPS di Sarawak, untuk menjaringkan tiga kemenangan di pilihanraya kecil Cameron Highlands, Semenyih, dan Rantau.

Fenomena “Malu Apa Bossku” juga telah memberikan galakan kepada ahli parlimen pembangkang untuk menyekat perjalanan Rang Undang-Undang Pindaan Perlembagaan untuk Perkara 1(2) Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang merupakan langkah pertama yang penting dalam melaksanakan satu daripada lima Janji Teras Pakatan Harapan dalam PRU14 “mengembalikan status Sabah dan Sarawak kepada sepertimana yang dipersetujui dalam Perjanjian Malaysia 1963”.

One important lesson for all Malaysians from the Sandakan by-election – Never forget the 1MDB scandal or Najib’s kleptocracy if Malaysia is ever to become a nation of integrity and excellence respected by the world

For the past several months before the Sandakan by-election, former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s highly-funded cybertroopers had been hammering hard on one theme with the siren song – enough had been said about the 1MDB scandal and Najib’s kleptocracy, the 14th General Election is over and let the courts decide whether Najib was guilty of corruption or not, but for now, the ball is in Pakatan Harapan’s court and let’s hear what the PH government had achieved to lower the cost of living and bring about institutional reforms.

From January this year, this Siren Song together with the invention of the shameless “Malu Apa Bossku” campaign to create a new persona and new lease of life for Najib, had a upper hand in the social media as evidenced from the three by-election defeats of Pakatan Harapan in Cameron Highlands, Semenyih and Rantau.

But the shameless “Malu Apa Bossku” campaign could only rampage for five months before it met its Waterloo in Sandakan.

One important lesson for all Malaysians from the Sandakan by-election is never to forget the 1MDB scandal or Najib’s kleptocracy if Malaysia is ever to become a nation of integrity and excellence respected by the world. Read the rest of this entry »

Three things which Najib should clarify in his shameless “Malu Apa Bossku” visit to Sandakan

There are many things which the former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak should clarify about the monstrous and heinous 1MDB scandal
and other mega corruption scandals  which he should answer  in his shameless “Malu Apa  Bossku” visit to Sandakan today, but there
are three things which he should not avoid as they had just cropped up in the past two days.

Firstly, he should respond to the 509 first anniversary speech by the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad  who said it was “strange” that Najib could still act innocent during the ongoing investigation of the 1MDB scandal and despite the return of some RM1.5 billion misappropriated from 1MDB by the US and Singapore authorities and the criminal and money-laundering investigations by some 10 countries; Read the rest of this entry »

Najib with his new persona Malu Apa Bossku welcome to Sandakan to give Malaysian voters the opportunity to speak up  loud and clear in a parliamentary by-election  that 1MDB scandal and Malaysia as a global kleptocracy are subjects of shame for right-thinking Malaysians

It is reported that former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak will be the star speaker of the UMNB-PAS by-election campaign for the PBS candidate in the Sandakan by-election on Friday, the eve of the by-election on Saturday.

Najib with his new persona Malu Apa Bossku is welcome to Sandakan to give Malaysian voters the opportunity to speak up loud and clear in a parliamentary by-election that the monstrous 1MDB scandal and Malaysia as a global kleptocracy are subjects of shame for right-thinking Malaysians.

Najib should come to Sandakan to explain why he had never apologised or expressed regret for the 1MDB scandal, which had brought to the country the 3Is of infamy, ignominy and iniquity as a global kleptocracy.

Great mistake to think that Najib’s corruption trials and those of a few bigwigs of the former administration signify Malaysia is firmly on the road to becoming a top nation of integrity

It is a great mistake to think that the corruption trials of former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and a few bigwigs of the former administration signify that Malaysia is firmly on the road to becoming a top nation of integrity.

Two events over the weekend illustrates such a dangerous fallacy.

First, the denial by an exalted personality like the former Speaker of Parliament that there was – or that anybody knows or cares about – the 1MBD scandal when Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia campaigned for PBS in the Sandakan by-election.

Pandikar had been singly responsible for the subversion of the 13th Parliament in preventing it from performing its patriotic duty to save Malaysia from being condemned by the world as a global kleptocracy.

There was neither a trace of regret nor a tinge of contrition from Pandikar for what he did as the Speaker of the 13th Parliament in suppressing parliamentary debate or probe into the 1MDB scandal, but instead, in perpetuating a furtive attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of Malaysian people by denying that there is such a thing as a 1MDB scandal.

Welcome Pandikar coming out from the woodwork!

Welcome Tan  Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia, though it is a surprise to see you coming out from the woodwork campaigning for PBS at Pulau Berhala in the Sandakan by-election.

You have been quite forgotten after your nine-year  stint as Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s 1MDB Speaker of Parliament, when you were the darling of the media, enjoying the controversies when you arbitrarily banned parliamentary discussion and probe of the 1MDB scandal and prevented Parliament from playing its role to save Malaysia from the ignominy, iniquity and  infamy of being condemned by the world as a global kleptocracy.

The 13th Parliament could have performed its patriotic duty to save Malaysia from being
condemned by the world as a global kleptocracy, but you stood in the way and did Najib’s every bidding. Read the rest of this entry »

Draw the line in the sand clearly and unequivocally that the Pakatan Harapan Government is committed to the objective to wipe out the kleptocracy of the Najib government which was ousted by Malaysians in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018

Let us not be squeamish but draw the line in the sand, clearly and unequivocally, that the Pakatan Harapan government is committed to the objective to wipe out the kleptocracy of the Najib government which was ousted by Malaysians in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018.

MCA has stood out as the only political party so far to openly object to the internal memo by the Solicitor General III Mohamad Hanafiah Zakaria using the term “kleptocracy” to refer to the former administration of Najib Razak, ahead of his corruption trial tomorrow.

I am not aware that any MCA Minister or leader had expressed any objection or outrage when the US Attorney-General Loretta Lynch described the US Department of Justice’s kleptocratic litigation to forfeit 1MDB-linked assets, where the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak was singled out although only referred to as “Malaysian Official 1” (MO1), in July 2016 as the “largest single action ever brought by the department’s Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative” or when in December 2017, after a change of United States administration, the then Attorney-General Jeff Sessions described the 1MDB case as “kleptocracy at its worst” at the global forum on asset recovery in Washington and pledged that the US
Department of Justice was “working to provide justice to the victims” of the 1MDB scandal.

Why is MCA expressing outrage only now? Read the rest of this entry »

The 1MDB “chickens coming home to roost”…

The Al Jazeera programme “Malaysia: The World’s Biggest Heist” featuring the former PetroSaudi International employee, Swiss national Xavier Andre Justo, is the latest 1MDB “chickens coming home to roost”.

The question posed at the end of the programme:“If PetroSaudi had paid Justo the money he said he was owed, would the world’s biggest heist have ever been exposed?” is food for thought for all Malaysians.

Xavier’s answer to the question was simple and straightforward – he did not know.

Najib has achieved two “greats” in his life – made Malaysia a global kleptocracy and now the first and only former Prime Minister to become the “king…of trolls”

Datuk Seri Najib Razak has achieved two “greats” in his life – made Malaysia a global kleptocracy and now the first and only Prime Minister to become the
“king…of trolls”.

In his campaign for the Barisan Nasional in the Cameron Highlands by-election at
Felda Sungai Koyan, the Barisan Nasional stronghold in Jelai, the former Prime Minister boasted of his latest accomplishment on the social media:

“I have been crowned the ‘King of Trolls’. Read the rest of this entry »

Half-way mark for campaign for Cameron Highlands by-election – will Najib admit that his three greatest failures as sixth Prime Minister was 1MDB scandal, betrayal of the interests of Felda settlers and failure to bring the 200,000 Orang Aslis to the national mainstream of development?

We are now at the half-way mark in the campaign for the Cameron Highlands parliamentary by-election.

Will the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who is the main strategist behind the Barisan Nasional by-election, campaigning personally in the by-election and summoning to the electoral battle the old UMNO leaders like former Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hasimmuddin Hussein and the former Education Minister Mahdzir Khalid, the question is whether the by-election would mark Barisan Nasional’s rise from the ashes of its defeat in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018, and prepare for Najib’s political comeback in the 15th General Election by 2023 as the Prime Minister to save him from imprisonment in Sungai Buloh Prison.

I must confess I was quite unsure at first how to present Najib’s kleptocracy and the 1MDB scandal as among the key issues in the by-election, until the UMNO/BN strategists and cybertroopers providentially came to the rescue.

By stupidly focusing on the wholly legitimate and legal reimbursement of RM20 to some 60 Orang Asli youths who came out from the remote Orang Asli kampongs in their motor-bikes to Tanah Rata to support Pakatan Harapan on by-election’s Nomination Day, the Barisan Nasional strategists and cybertroopers had unwittingly focussed the by-election on the issues of clean and honest politics, good governance, the battle against corruption and most important of all, the 1MDB scandal.

Pakatan Harapan must thank the Barisan Nasional strategists and cybertroopers for this help and leg-up in the first few days of the campaign. Read the rest of this entry »

Has Najib crossed the Rubicon on the 1MDB scandal without realising it?

Has former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, crossed the Rubicon on the 1MDB scandal without realising it?

Until today, Najib has maintained a very consistent stand that there is nothing basically wrong with 1MDB which could not be put right, but with the apology to the people of Malaysia by Goldman Sachs chief executive officer David Solomon who said Malaysia was defrauded by numerous individuals, including the highest members of the prior government, Najib has changed his tune.

Two tasks for the 450 DAP Councillors to build a New Malaysia – to establish a clean and incorruptible culture of service and to be a force to promote understanding, tolerance, unity and harmony among diverse races, religions and cultures in Malaysia

I am somewhat surprised not that we have a retreat for local councillors, but that we have quite a large number of some 450 local councillors in the country – apart from the 42 DAP Members of Parliament and 119 State Assembly men/women in the country.

DAP has come a long way since our puny establishment 53 years ago, and it is important that the present generation of DAP leaders, in particular the DAP Ministers, Deputy Ministers, Members of Parliament, State Ministers and Exco and State Assembly representatives as well as the 450 local councillors should never forget where the DAP came from and where we want to go – the DAP came from ordinary Malaysians regardless of race or religion and our common objective is to help build a just, clean, free, democratic, united and prosperous Malaysia.

As a step closer to closure of the monstrous 1MDB scandal and kleptocratic Malaysia, two days left for all who had aided and abetted Najib in his kleptocratic rule – including former Ministers and MPs – to apologise to all Malaysians for being “enablers of Najib kleptocracy”

The monstrous 1MDB scandal and other 1MDB-like scandals in Felda, Felcra, Tabung Haji and MARA as part of a kleptocratic Malaysia is not any closer to a closure despite close to eight months of the historic decision in the 14th General Election for a peaceful and democratic transition of power in Putrajaya.

As a step closer to closure of the monstrous 1MDB scandal and kleptocratic Malaysia, there are two days left for all who had aided and abetted former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak in his kleptocratic rule – including former Ministers and MPs – to apologise to all Malaysians for being “enablers of Najib kleptocracy”

Will Wee Ka Siong apologise and demonstrate his contrition for being an “enabler of Najib kleptocracy” in the last three days of this year?

Datuk Seri Dr. Wee Ka Siong is the Datuk Seri Dr. Zahid Hamidi of MCA.

At least when Zahid claims to represent the Malays, he can do so without batting an eyelid.

Can Wee honestly and honourably claim to represent the Chinese, even in the
Ayer Hitam parliamentary constituency?

Wee is the sole MCA MP in Parliament. But who sent him to Parliament – the Chinese of Malaysia or UMNO’s Malay vote bank?

In the spirit of “zero tolerance for corruption”, all who had aided and abetted Najib in his kleptocratic rule must apologise to all Malaysians in the next three days if they are not to carry the cross of “enablers of Najib kleptocracy” into the new year

In the spirit of “zero tolerance for corruption”, which must be the trademark of the “New Malaysia” after the historic May 9, 2018 decision for a peaceful and democratic transition of power in Putrajaya, all who had aided and abetted former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak in his kleptocratic rule as illustrated by the monstrous 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal and the other 1MDB-like scandals in Felda, Felcra, Tabung Haji and MARA, must apologise to all Malaysians in the next three days if they are not to carry the cross of “enablers of Najib kleptocracy” into the new year.

Those in the frontline who aided and abetted the monstrous crimes of kleptocracy in the Najib premiership, the enablers of Najib kleptocracy, are foremost the Ministers in the Najib Cabinet, the Members of Parliament in particular the Speaker of the 13th Parliament who helped Najib to suppress the 1MDB scandal and Najib kleptocracy from being debated in Parliament, and the Barisan Nasional political leaders who had received 1MDB funds from Najib.

They have three days to make a clean breast of their past as enablers of Najib kleptocracy, and to declare and demonstrate their regret and contrition for not standing up to the crime of global kleptocracy and failing the nation – or they will carry the cross of being enablers of Najib kleptocracy into the new year.

Apology to Wee Ka Siong – I did not realise his intellectual capabilities and standards are as low as other MCA leaders

I must apologise to the MCA President, Datuk Seri Dr. Wee Ka Siong as I had not realised that his intellectual capabilities and standards are as low as the other MCA leaders.

When I lamented on Tuesday that the national education curriculum needed an overhaul as it was producing political leaders “who do not understand a simple statement, reading what is not there at all”, I had not included him in the category.

Last Thursday, I had said in Luoyang, Henan that the DAP will never become MCA2 as DAP leaders will not be as spineless as MCA leaders and that DAP will not hesitate leaving the Pakatan Harapan coalition government if the objective of New Malaysia was abandoned.

I observed in Kuala Lumpur on Christmas Day that my Luoyang statement sent the Opposition into sixes and sevens, feeding on their fevered imagination, with a PAS leader trying to provoke the DAP to quit Pakatan Harapan, while one MCA leader urged the DAP to “”grow a backbone” to exit the government and another MCA leader “hit the jackpot” and unconsciously condemned all MCA leaders with the statement that DAP did not qualify to be MCA2.

Would Najib regard it as “betrayal of principle” if UMNO MPs condemn him and 1MDB scandal as among the greatest catastrophes in the nation’s history

The statement by the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak that UMNO MPs must not abandon UMNO because they must hold on to their principle raise an interesting question whether Najib would regard it as a “betrayal of principle” if UMNO MPs condemn him and 1MDB scandal as among the greatest catastrophes in the nation’s history!

This question becomes pertinent and relevant with the latest 1MDB salvo from investment bank Goldman Sachs who accused the former Najib government of having lied about its 1MDB dealings. Read the rest of this entry »
