I have taken a breather from blogging for a couple of months but I have not stopped following the events in my beloved country. Those which evoke so much disappointment in me are the issues surrounding the current Prime Minister, Najib Razak and his gang of “intellectually-challenged” but loyal supporters with abnormal conscience.
For those who are not familiar with what I am talking about, you can google “1MDB scandal” and my international readers can visit the website “Sarawak Reports” (SR) which is currently banned in Malaysia due to its revelations on alleged corruption involving Najib and his high-flying family. You can also get some precise and sleek information and analyses (blogs) on 1MDB here and here.
The fact that he is both the Prime Minister as well as the Finance Minister has not been lost on the people. This dual portfolio has enabled him to blindfold the system of check and balance and open the floodgate of gleeful abuse of position.
The damning revelation by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) early in July this year about USD700 million being credited into Najib’s personal account at a private bank before the General Election in 2013, is the hardest for us to accept. After a period of hesitancy, he finally admitted that the remittance into his account was from a Middle Eastern donor. In terms of Malaysian currency that amount is about RM2.6 billion. Now why would a donor want to donate that humongous amount to Najib Razak? Do you think if he were an ordinary citizen he would get that kind of dizzying amount of donation? The fact that he is the current Prime Minister of Malaysia makes this both an integrity as well as a national security issue. And the Malaysian Anti-corruption Council Acts have very clear provisions under this topic of “donation” to a public servant. The donation constitutes corruption.
This “donation” (which many people do not believe as being donated but instead think that this money is part of the 1MDB transactions making a merry-go-rounds in the process of being laundered), was unknown to all his party members before the WSJ and SR’s exposures. Instead of stepping down and allowing commissioned public servants to investigate this infraction, Najib Razak refuses to do so and before our very eyes, rapidly engineered his way to scupper all kinds of investigations. All these established investigating mechanisms are effectively dismantled as he and his gang of crooked political supporters are now accusing those who question him of wanting to topple the government and acting against parliamentary democracy. How low can you stoop Najib?
The selective amnesia and total indifference by Najib Razak and his gang of boot lickers on this integrity issue of “donation” is incomprehensible. They display an utter lack of values on what is right and what is wrong. They are all clearly becoming selectively psychotic (out of touch with reality) on this moral and legal issue.
There are incredible spins by his supporters whom Najib has labelled as “not smart but loyal”, the latest of which is that the money was donated by Saudi Arabia for Malaysia’s fight against IS (Islamic State) but just a year ago (2014) Najib was singing praises of the brutal terrorist group and the donation ostensibly as gratification for opposing Islamic State was actually credited into his personal bank account in 2013. Got him, the lying swine! When you tell lies you can never be consistent.
Najib Razak you are not only a liar but a cheat as well. He said he had never used the “donation” for his personal gain but concurrently is not detailing openly how he has disbursed the RM2.6 billion (RM2,600,000,000.00 million). The latest Sarawak Reports revealed that he spent more than USD1million on his credit cards while holidaying with his family in Europe after the General Election in 2013. There are people who feel compelled to tell Malaysians and the World about the corrupt activities of this low down serf.
I respect the post of the Prime Minister but I have totally lost respect for Najib Razak. He is an embarrassment to our country.
His dastardly acts cannot be forgotten ( one day he will be brought to justice, Allah/God Willing). His legacy is one big black dot. And he may well be long remembered as the most sinister Prime Minister in our political history.
