Let’s cut to the chase

Let’s get to the point.

Aliran’s P Ramakrishnan has issued a press release, in which he says:

If the PM can either confirm or deny what has been written concerning him on two counts, it can bring to a close the controversy that is presently raging.

  1. The private accounts that have been attributed to him in the AmIslamic Bank – are they his personal accounts?
  2. The alleged RM2.6bn that had found its way into these accounts – is this indeed true?

The PM so far has not denied these but can he at least affirm that these are facts?

If he can do these, we need not go after those who are only acting in the interest of the nation. These innocent people need not be hounded and their lives made difficult.

At this point, everything else is secondary – The Edge’s suspension, Justo, travel bans… – even a distraction.

The events are very dramatic. Even a kapcai motorcyclist is being questioned and put on bail. Better than Hollywood thriller. Not only high flyer but 2 wheeler also involved. Who say dispatch rider earns as much as high flyer executive?

Transparency International Malaysia (TI-M) has described the ongoing 1MDB investigations as neither here nor there, or worse, dead, following a series of political manoeuvrings in the country:

(1) The sacking of attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail who was involved in the investigation by the special task force;

(2) The appointment of new Special Branch chief Mohamad Fuzi Harun and a fire in Bukit Aman where purported “unimportant” documents were destroyed; and

(3) The appointment of four out of the 13 PAC members, including its chairperson, into the government.

Former AG, please do not make us dunggu. In few months time you are supposed to retire. Why cant the gomen wait? But you created Malaysia and world record to be the first AG to be FIRED, fried sotong, SACK and humililated. You did nothing wrong and yet be put to shame. More shame as a retired person and closer to grave has to call to replace you. The Rakyat kena being dunggus and now everything and anything can happened.

My prediction. I forsee that Azmin and Pakatan in Selangor will fall within the next month. With the support of BN and defection of at least 3 PKR adun, Pas will taken over the govt with Khalid as MB. It will be solely Khalid and Pas govt with no BN exco. There may be only about 4-5 Exco as what happen during the last days of Khalid last year.

Lim Kit Siang want Mahathir to save Malaysia. Look at below and you should see the hypocrisy of Lim Kit Siang. My good those DAP lackeys and sycophants. better wake up

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has a knack for stealing the thunder. But it is often followed by bolts of criticism such as in the case of his infamous ‘Chinese who vote DAP are ingrates’ remark.

Based on this symptom, Lim Kit Siang diagnosed the home minister with an illness he said was spread by former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad. It is called “Mahathirish perverse illogic”.

Yang did not get it?

Alvin ; Sure I get it which is why I want to highlight the hypocrisy of the CAT and LKS and DAP when they sleep with M, PAS, and all the devil turn god sent. The people should know how they collude with Pas and now GHP despite both of them wanting to implement hudud and an islamic state.

P Ramasamy of Penang summed up very well: It was only after the 1MDB financial scandal broke loose, that Najib was driven to the point of either resigning from his post and facing the consequences of such an action, or to hit back at this detractors. In the end, Najib chose to fight back, not because he was Bugis “warrior” but because the consequences of resigning from his post were totally unimaginable. For him to remove certain Umno leaders from the cabinet and the sacking of Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail, were actions taken to safeguard his position and those of… Read more »

Ramasamy, Better think of your Pakatan before talking of BN and UMNO. DAP is desperately wooing GHB and PKR. PKR dare not give their full and wholly support with Kak Wan and Azmin saying we co-operate with all parties including Pas. On the other hand the disgruntled rejects from Pas is desperately trying to form GHB and wooing Pas members. Now they are trying to woo Muhyiddin into their fold. Like I said before to LKS and these rejects, trash is better than nothing after all they are also trash.. Pakatan Rakyat 2.0 said they are going sweep the country… Read more »

Under Article 145(6) of the Federal Constitution, (apparently) the AG can only be removed via a tribunal appointed by the Yang di Pertuan Agong (similar to the removal of a Federal court judge). But then, what’s the point of going through such a lengthy and elaborate process when Gani is only 2 months away from his retirement. The hurried and (apparently) unconstitutional manner in which Gani is bundled out (instead of waiting for just 2 months) seems totally irrational unless someone is really desperate to get rid of him immediately against his will. Otherwise, he could have taken a long… Read more »

If a discipline master while in the course of investigating a suspected student for theft is suddenly relieved of his post, what does this mean? No need to go to the canteen for a cuppa. Likewise, recent events not only caught the attention of many Malaysians, but the world of nations are watching closely, notwithstanding the Mongolian case which draws some parallel to the way this investigation is going as ‘predictable’. Even throwing a dice can get you what is expected. You don’t need to convert… Read more »

tunglang please take note of this writing br blog reader swipenter:

All of us are paying the price of the avarice of one couple. This reminds me of the Marcos first couple of Philippines. Their avarice, corruption and spendthrift ways plunged their country into an abyss for decades from which they are just recovering.

Since the 1970s, Filipinos have to send their men and women to work overseas to send home badly needed foreign exchange. Here we may be facing a similar scenario and repeat the same mistake by foolishly defending one couple.

Its a knockout blow to Mahathir who is aiming to push Muhyiddin as the next PM.
The good news is Zahid is the new deputy PM. Another good choice to finish off the opposition and to put BN in firm stead.

Muhyiddin was sacked for reading The Edge for 1MDB update instead of refering to Utusan or NST?

Najib is demonstrating to Mahathir that he too could sack the deputy?

The move could get backlash from Muhyiddin’s supporters in Johor?

Cabinet reshuffle by Najib? http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/muhyiddin-4-others-out-in-cabinet-reshuffle-say-sources Datuk Seri Najib Razak is to reshuffle his Cabinet this week, dropping five out of the 35-strong slate of ministers, including his deputy, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who has been critical of the prime minister’s handling of government-owned 1Malaysia Development Bhd’s RM42 billion debts, say sources. Government sources say apart from Muhyiddin, two other Umno ministers – vice-president and Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal; and Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Hasan Malek – will be dropped in a mid-term review of Najib’s Cabinet which took office in… Read more »

A financial scandal of unprecedented scale is miring the political landscape in Malaysia and it could lead right to the top of the political power chain. Najib stands accused of receiving up to $700 million in a series of transfers to his personal accounts, the bulk of it allegedly transferred just prior to the 2013 election. Najib denies the allegations, saying they are the work of political opponents set on unseating him.

The PM did right by not answering these question whether Yes or No. Even if the PM said No, there will also be a lot of speculations by the oppositions with their twists and turns. Let the authorities investigate and made its conclusion. I wonder why the opposition are so afraid ?? Before Aliran ask the PM about Yes or No, they should instead be asking these questions. 1. Are all these documents and information that have been published out by WSJ authentic or not. 2. Have they been tampered, fabricated or altered especially the names, account no. , signatures,… Read more »

Najib should not just give a yes or no answer but go even further to sue WSJ (and others) not just for his but for the country’s sake. He should not ignore the fact that the 1MDB scandal is being followed closely worldwide; otherwise an internationally renown magazine such as the WSJ would not be bothered to provide such extensive space for it. A scandal of such a proportion that is linked to the PM, who is the head of government, is very damaging to the reputation of the country and would create a major dent to the international confidence… Read more »

Bersih said there were four immediate measures which Putrajaya could undertake to restore public confidence in the investigations into 1MDB:

1. Compel Najib to make public his personal bank accounts to address allegations that he received nearly RM2.6 billion million.

2. Compel Najib to take leave as prime minister, minister of finance and other public offices he holds pending the completion of the probe.

3. Freeze all bank accounts belonging to Najib’s family members.

4. Make public the findings of the Bank Negara, MACC, police and PAC investigations.

Zainuddin Maidin said the statements from Muhyiddin and Mukhriz represented growing dissatisfaction on the ground towards the current leadership. Zainuddin also pointed out that Muhyiddin was supported by his home state, Johor, where state Umno chief Khaled Nordin has said the party’s grassroots should be heard at all times.

Possible split in Umno camps?

We must remember that Zainuddin Maidin former information minister now aligned to Mahathir called the Chinese pendatang. No matter what CAT senior will still love all these guys from Zainuddin, M, Razaleigh, Musa and now Muhyiddin. CAT senior consider them as trash once but but they are now considered as God sent.

We ask PM a very simple question that requires a straight answer of either YES or NO.
Instead of answering this logical question he turned around warning the people who asked
questions with threats of prosecution. What is so difficult of him to refute, if not true, with
proof of course, without condescendence, threat or insults? If true then he, and he alone, should
face the music and not drag the entire country through the mud. This kind of response is a
conduct most unbecoming of a leader.
