Washington Post: Malaysian’s leader is a friend Obama should lose BACK IN January, Malaysia’s autocratic-minded prime minister, Najib Razak, tried to decree the end to a scandal involving the appearance of $681 million in his personal bank accounts. After an attorney general he installed reported that the money was a donation from the Saudi royal family, and did not involve wrongdoing, Mr. Najib declared: “The matter has been comprehensively put to rest.” Malaysians who argued otherwise, officials suggested, risked prosecution under the country’s draconian sedition law.

The OSA was supposed to be used for security, at best national interest reason. How is a transaction between 1MDB and LTAT would affect national interest or security? With this OSA, they can basically commit genocide and stamp it OSA and we can’t even talk about it..

How can the police barge into the parliament to arrest Rafizi?
