Now what, Najib, after WSJ’s latest revelation…

Everyday sees the ground moving from under Najib and his team. Yesterday, it was the New York Post report about Jho Low and Mahathir and Siti Hasmah quitting Umno.

Today, it is yet another Wall Street Journal expose that investigators allege the prime minister account had received over US$1bn (RM4bn) not just RM2.6bn via intermediaries and most of this is later returned to the intermediaries.

They also believe the RM2.6bn in funds originated from 1MDB and “moved through a complex web of transactions in several countries and with the help of two former officials of Abu Dhabi, a Persian Gulf emirate with which 1MDB has deep ties”.

So where does this leave Najib? Are they now going to block the Wall Street Journal website?

Despite all this, despite the erosion in credibility and support, it is amazing that Najib still has his coterie of loyal supporters. Here’s an emotional one:

Now they say Auditor report is OSA – when Najib keep repeating ” wait for report” for how long? Larry Moe Curly cannot make these stuff up. They want to charge Fahmi for clown caricature, when Fahmi should sue them for copyright infringement of his intellectual property for being his caricature.

Al Malayians want to know why Putrajaya has placed the auditor-general’s (A-G) final report on 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) under the Official Secrets Act 1972 (OSA) after promising not to hide anything on the state’s sovereign wealth fund.

The latest allegation by The Wall Street Journal that more than US$1 billion was deposited into Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s his accounts, hundreds of millions more than previously identified, will not make any difference now as the prime minister has weathered similar allegations not too long ago, analysts say. They also think that public sentiment over the money can be considered “done and dealt with”, in the sense that an extra few hundred million will have little impact as the institutions which could have provided checks on his power have been weakened. Political analyst Khoo Kay Peng said those tasked… Read more »

Every now and then they come out with allegations after allegations. There`s no evidence. Why is it that its only Sarawak Repork and WSJ that come out with these allegation. We never see it from any other sources. Is there a conspiracy between the media tycoon, the power tycoon, a former PM and his lackeys to create such lies and deception. Actually who do we want to believe when its only a report without evidence.

Ask yourself why WSJ would want to risk its international reputation against Najib if it does not have good evidence?

Najib dare not sue WSJ, instead he again goes to Mecca for Umrah to seek divine solace and to seek forgiveness from the almighty as well as more ‘donation’ from Saudi Sheik while he is there?

There is no logical reason why the Wall Street Journal would need to risk it’s reputation and be a ‘willing vehicle for political actors’ as Putrajaya puts it. You have not answered the allegations. More so, the PM accepted money that was placed in his private account. That is fact and that is wrong. So Putrajaya has no leg to stand on and whatever it says simply falls on deaf ears because it has lost all credibility. Reputation is everything and no one has one that is worth something in the Government.

Huge mistake for the opposition to work with Mahathir. He has only one agenda and that is to rid of Najib. His departure from UMNO is only temporary. He has every intention to rejoining UMNO and it is back to square one. Don’t fall into his trap.

More than US$1 billion was deposited in the bank accounts of Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib – millions more than was previously identified, according to the Wall Street Journal, quoting unnamed people familiar with the matter. The Rupert Murdoch-controlled newspaper published the allegation hours after Malaysia’s former leader Mahathir Mohamad quit his country’s ruling party, saying he did not want to be associated with a group that is seen as supporting corruption under Mr Najib’s leadership. The Wall Street Journal said millions of dollars arrived in Mr Najib’s accounts in 2011 and 2012, citing two people familiar with flows into the… Read more »
