Transparency International president Jose Ugaz hammers home two key questions arising from the RM2.6bn ‘donation’ into Najib’s personal bank account: “Who paid the money and why? Where did it go?”
He raised those quetions at the International Anti-Corruption Conference. “One man could answer those questions,” says Ugaz.
Notice the delegates’ applause punctuating his speech.
“If that does not happen, then only a fully independent investigation, free from political interference, can uncover the truth. And till that happens no claim from the government or anti-corruption would be credible.”
Najib failed to show up and deliver the key-note address. To many, the reason for the no-show was obvious.
When will we have that “fully independent investigation, free from political interference”, which Ugaz demands?
Until that happens, Najib’s position as premier remains untenable. He has to go on leave pending investigations.
