(Versi BM)

According to the UMNO Secretary-General Ahmad Maslan, the document had been circulating online and is an offence under Section 220 of the Penal Code.

Najib’s most extraordinary statement in not denying that he was the “hidden hand” behind the RM9 billion LCS scandal but asking for proof that he was the “hidden hand”

(Versi BM)

Former Prime Minister Najib Razak has made a most extraordinary statement – not denying that he was the “hidden hand” behind the RM9 billion littoral combatant ship (LCS) scandal but asking for proof that he was the “hidden hand”.

Najib said those blaming him for the failed procurement of the six LCS should show proof he interfered with the ships’ design or took money from the project.

Why is Najib blaming fourth Prime Minister Mahathir and the Pakatan Harapan Government for the RM9 billion LCS scandal when the procurement of the six LCS was made during Najib’s time and not twenty years earlier when Mahathir was Prime Minister or the Pakatan Harapan Government after him?

(Versi BM)

Former Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu and his then deputy Liew Chin Tong asked a most pertinent question in their joint statement yesterday: whether the sixth Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had planned from the beginning for the littoral combat ships (LCS) project to help pay off the bad debts from the failed new generation patrol vessel (NGPV) project.

I would ask a more forthright question: Why is (i) Najib trying to blame Mahathir Mohamad, the fourth Prime Minister, for the RM9 billion LCS scandal when the procurement of the six LCS was made during Najib’s time – whether the conception, negotiation and signing of contract – and not twenty years earlier when Mahathir was the Prime Minister; and (ii) the Pakatan Harapan government which came after Najib’s sixth premiership?

(Versi BM)

Everybody in Malaysia, whether government or opposition, the public or private sector, should agree on a four-point approach to the RM9 billion Littoral Combatant Ship (LCS) scandal – (I) to learn the lessons of the scandal; (ii) wrongdoers to be punished; (iii) ensure security and sovereignty of the nation; and (iv) to safeguard the interests of current military staff and ex-service personnel.

1. To learn the lessons of the scandal.

If Najib cannot rebut Rafizi’s allegation that a foreign firm had full control of LCS sub-contractor, it is additional reason why Najib is the “hidden hand” behind the RM9 billion Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) scandal

(Versi BM)

If former Prime Minister, Najib Razak, cannot rebut the allegation by the PKR Deputy President Rafizi Ramli that a foreign firm Rheinmetall Air Defence AG (RAD) had full control of the LCS sub-contractor Contraves Advanced Devices Sdn. Bhd (CAD), then it is another additional reason why Najib was the “hidden hand” behind the RM9 billion Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) scandal.

The PKR deputy president said RAD, a German defence contractor fully owned by RD Investment AG, held 49% shares in CAD. Read the rest of this entry »

Thanks to Najib, Malaysia is even losing out to Egypt which has two Gowind LCS in operation although Egypt was later than Malaysia in contracting for the Gowind LCS

(Versi BM)

Thanks to Najib Razak, the sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia who caused national infamy for Malaysia to be regarded worldwide as a kleptocracy, Malaysia is even losing out to Egypt which has two Gowind LCS in operation although Egypt was later than Malaysia in deciding to buy the Gowind LCS.

Malaysia’s decision to buy the six Gowind LCS was made as far back as 2011 although the contract was delayed and signed only in 2014, but Egypt, which signed a one billion Euro contract to buy four Gowind LCS in 2014, has now two Gowind LCS in operation. Read the rest of this entry »

Was Najib the “hidden hand” behind the RM9 billion LCS scandal?

(Versi BM)

There is one question swirling in the minds of thinking Malaysians in the past week since the tabling of the explosive report of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) on the RM9 billion Littoral Combatant Ship (LCS) Scandal: – whether Najib Razak was the “hidden hand” behind the mega scandal.

Without reading and understanding the PAC report, which is a horror story of corruption, fraud, abuse of power, mismanagement and criminality in the public service, Najib had been very active on his Facebook in the past week to defend the RM9 billion LCS scandal and even to blame the Pakatan Harapan for the scandal. – which only reinforced the question.

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.

Thayaparan asked very naïve questions.

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.

I have a message for the Malaysian public. My media statements reflect my political views and has nothing to do with the DAP leadership, as I have retired from competitive politics and no more in the political front-line.

I can understand the horror of some Malaysians at my statement on Sunday that I was prepared to work with Najib Razak for the good the country and not for a portion of the 1MDB riches but first all, Najib must condemn the 1MDB scandal and declare his stand against Malaysia becoming a kleptocracy.
