Even Ali Baba would have gasped at this loot

Images of the mind-boggling loot seized by police in KL have stunned Malaysians. The confiscated items, which included Birkin, Hermes and other luxury handbags and lots of other bags and boxes containing cash, foreign currency, jewellery and other valuables, have left many Malaysians dumbfounded. Some of these bags were so heavy that hefty men struggled to lift them.

To say it is a veritable treasure trove would be an understatement. And this is just the loot from one of six residences that have been searched. Ali Baba and his mates would have gasped and whistled in awe at the scale of the loot and the sheer audacity of the heist.

Without doubt, the flamboyant Rosmah Mansor, with her fetish for top-of-the-range handbags and gems, has the dubious distinction of making Imelda Marcos, with her miserable shoe collection, look like a pauper. As one observer noted, “Imelda kalah teruk!”

Yet, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Imagine, this is what Najib and Rosmah couldn’t cart away in time. What have they already taken away?

And this is just one couple. Full article on Aliran website.

No need to buy branded shoes, as Tun Mahathir has shown us that the RM11.99 Bata sandals is good enough even for a PM.

Tak Terduga! Ini Komen Chef Wan Mengenai Barang Mewah Milik Rosmah dan Najib

Chef Wan: “Eh nak tangkap perompak mesti ada bulan tertentu ke dan mengguna diplomasi dan sebagainya? How can we even put up with all this corrupt leaders yang di akhirnya menjerut leher mereka sendiri”

Chef Wan, you are right.
We have been mistreated left & right by these types of leaders who now stand accused of many wrong doings to be rightfully investigated & served them right without any sympathy nor “ahemmmm, pls treat them with soft pinky gloves”

Actually Najib should be charged for not cooperating since he has claimed that the keys to the safe were missing. How then Umno could claim the money belongs to them?

The serial number of the money can tell if the money is more than 20 years old. Najib likely tell lies.

Why keep cash at home? Opportunity cost of interest that can earn at his brother CIMB bank?

Looks more like money laundering to me.

The 17K Political Appointees are mostly Umno cybertroopers who ran a campaign of fear. Fear of change, fear of the ‘DAP-led opposition’, and fear of loss of Malay political power, as in the BTN propaganda.

RM1,000,000,000,000 / 31.7 million Malaysians = RM31,545.74. That means, every single Malaysians from a day-old baby to a dying person has debt of RM31,545.74 to settle. This is just the principal debt sum, interest on the debt is not included yet.

Najib and Rosmah are seen as delaying the investigation by refusing to open the other 8 (eight) security vaults/safes. From news, only 1 (one) security vault was successfully busted (by force). Najib and rosmah are not going to get any sympathy for this. In this investigation, the cops are way too lenient. As ordinary citizens/ suspects are often put inside the police lockup while waiting for a formal charge. Stealing the nation’s money also means betraying the citizens and the Pertuan Agong. This can be treated as treason. It is best for the Home Minister to issue a temporary house… Read more »

UMNO said that the money was campaign contributions and party funding left over after the election and it was seized while it was in the process of being transferred to the party’s new leadership. “As such, UMNO seeks to recover these funds and requests the police to release these funds and return them to the party after completion of all due process and investigations by the relevant authorities,” the party said. Out of power for the first time since independence six decades ago, UMNO said it needed the money to recover from its defeat. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asia/malaysia-s-defeated-umno-party-asks-for-its-money-back-10276916

Sirul willing to assist in Altantuya case – with a full pardon
https://www.malaysiakini.com/news/425794

EXCLUSIVE | Australian immigration detainee Sirul Azhar Umar says he is willing to assist the new Pakatan Harapan government to reveal what transpired in the case of Altantuya Shaariibuu – provided he is given a full pardon to travel back to Malaysia.
Sirul, 45, told Malaysiakini from his detention centre in Sydney today that this is a condition for his release, as he believes many now see him as political detainee following BN’s loss in the 14th general election.
