1. Saya tidak tawar untuk menolong sesiapa untuk mengatasi apa-apa masalah.
2. Dalam blog saya, saya tidak menuduh Dato Seri Najib melakukan apa-apa jenayah. Itu boleh ditentukan jika polis dapat membuat siasatan. Yang saya pohon ialah jawapan kepada soalan-soalan yang disuarakan oleh ramai rakyat.
3. Saya akui dimasa saya juga ada kehilangan wang negara. Tetapi rakyat dan dunia tahu bagaimana wang ini hilang. Kerugian yang dialami oleh Perwaja diketahui. Demikian juga dengan salah urus Bank Bumiputra oleh pengurusannya. Maminco rugi kerana London Metal Exchange memutuskan bahawa bijih timah yang dijual mengikut perjanjian jual beli yang sah tidak perlu ditunaikan dengan membekal logam berkenaan kepada pembeli. Ini diputuskan untuk menyelamat penjual yang tidak ada timah. Malaysia sebagai pembeli mengalami kerugian.
4. Saya ingin penerangan berkenaan bagaimana Konsortium Perkapalan dan Forex merugikan Kerajaan dan bagaimana saya terlibat dalam perkara ini.
5. Yang nyata ialah negara tahu dimana pergi wang yang dilabur semasa saya. Dalam perniagaan adakala untung, adakala rugi. Yang tidak boleh diterima ialah duit itu hilang tanpa diketahui kemana.
6. Hari ini nilai Ringgit jatuh sebanyak 70 sen. Tiap satu Ringgit jatuhnya matawang kita, negara, Kerajaan dan rakyat kerugian berbillion. Kejatuhan sebanyak 70 sen pun merugikan berbillion Ringgit juga.
7. Tetapi apabila Ringgit diselamatkan dari penyangak matawang, berbillion Ringgit duit Kerajaan diselamatkan. Dan ramai peniaga yang muflis dan hampir muflis terselamat pada tahun 1998. Lupakan sahajalah peristiwa ini kerana ia berlaku dizaman saya.
8. Tetapi dalam kes 1MDB, tidak ada jawapan yang munasabah berkenaan 42 billion Ringgit yang dihutang. Kenapa bayar lebih 10% komisyen kepada Goldman Sachs hanya kerana menjual bond atau membuat pinjaman bagi Kerajaan. Kenapa faedah 5.9% dikenakan, satu faedah yang amat tinggi.
9. Disoal juga peranaan Jho Low. Siapa dianya yang diberi kepercayaan mengendali wang 1MDB berbillion-billion ringgit milik syarikat Kerajaan. Tidak ada persamaan antara Jho Low dengan Daim yang saya lantik sebagai Menteri.
10. Dimana datangnya ratusan million Ringgit untuk membeli bangunan-bangunan dan melabur dalam filem “The Wolf of Wall Street” oleh Riza Aziz, anak tiri Dato Seri Najib.
11. Saya bukan tuduh Dato Seri Najib. Saya bertanya beberapa soalan kerana hutang berbillion ini akan ditanggung akhirnya oleh rakyat. Jawapan tidak juga diberi oleh mereka yang mengecam saya selain daripada berkata saya punyai kepentingan atau saya juga buat kerja yang sama.
12. Apabila saya letak jawatan satu usaha dibuat untuk mendapat bukti saya lesapkan duit Kerajaan. Kalau hendak buat siasatan lagi, saya tidak ada halangan.
Dahulu sokong, kenapa tidak sekarang?
13. Pembaca portal “Free Malaysia Today”, Izack Chin bertanya kenapa saya dahulu sokong Dato Seri Najib supaya mengganti Tun Abdullah. Pada masa itu Najib ternampak bersih. Sekarang ada syak wasangka dikalangan orang ramai yang tidak terjawab..
14. Sudah lapan tahun berlalu kenapa bangkit perkara ini? Ini bukan masalah lapan tahun dahulu. Yang saya soal ialah berkenaan masalah hari ini – masalah nyawa dua orang anggota polis yang dihukum bunuh. Amatlah tidak adil jika mereka dibunuh sedangkan mereka sebagai pegawai rendah polis hanya mengikut perintah.
15. Saya hanya tanya berkenaan siapa yang mengeluar perintah kepada Sirul dan rakannya.
Temasek and 1MDB
16. Salleh Said Kruak compares Low Taek Jho and my critic of him with the criticism against me regarding Ananda Krishan’s involvement in Petronas and the appointment of my friend Daim Zainuddin as Finance Minister. I really do not see any similarity.
17. Ananda Krishnan bought the race course in Jalan Ampang. He could develop this prime land by himself. But he decided to sell one half share of the 100 acres land to Petronas and developed it together. Later he sold his tower to Petronas. What is wrong with that? Petronas made tons of money from the project.
18. There is no similarity at all between Temasek of Singapore and 1MDB. Temasek did not lose money but money borrowed by 1MDB has disappeared.
19. 1MDB is not excess fund belonging to the Government. 1MDB borrowed all its billions. Borrowed money cannot be regarded as wealth. So far the only asset owned by 1MDB are the pieces of land bought from the Government at a price very much below market price. They have been highly revalued. But until they are sold, they cannot be used to pay the 42 billion the 1MDB borrowed. They cannot even pay the interest.
20. As for the comment that it is unfair for me to ask Najib to step down as he was elected through democratic process, I would like to remind Datuk Jamal (Md Yunos) that Tun Abdullah was also elected but Najib was partly instrumental in asking him to step down.
21. With regard to my political agenda, what is wrong with that? A Prime Minister must be seen to be clean and able to explain and answer questions and to be good for the country. Najib cannot even answer and has not answered any question, beyond exercising elegant silence or saying the allegations are not true.
22. There is also an attempt to divert attention from my question by saying that I am siding with the opposition, even that I have become leader of the opposition.
23. If saying something that is similar to the opposition makes me aligned with the opposition, then Najib must be more with the opposition than me because he agreed with the opposition to abolish the ISA, the prevention of crime law and ignore the NEP. He also wanted to abolish the Sedition Act as demanded by the opposition. If UMNO did not object the Sedition Act would have been abolished. So is Najib a member of the opposition?
24. I am still an UMNO member. My disagreement is with the leader, not with the party. I criticised the leader, not the party. It is simply because I want to see the party win. It will not win if Najib is the leader.
25. I had great hopes when Najib took over from Abdullah.
26. But he did even worse than Abdullah, losing more badly in Selangor where he was the Head of UMNO. Thre are so many scandals surrounding him now. His popularity is now even lower than when he led the BN in 2013. In a number of constituencies the margins won by Barisan Nasional (BN) are very narrow.
27. Sabah and Sarawak, are now no longer safe, no longer BN’s fixed deposits.
28. Is it too absurd to predict defeat for the BN in 2018.
29. As for my sons, if I had wanted them to succeed in politics I could have done so when I was Prime Minister. If they succeed it will be by their own effort. If the people don’t like them they will not get this support. - chedet.cc/

Pmtg.Pauh: Mom or daughter to contest...
The riddle on who would contest the Permatang Pauh parliamentary by-election for PKR is englufing party members.
Sources say the party wanted its president Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to contest the seat to fill in for her husband Anwar Ibrahim, who is now serving a 5-year jail sentence after a sodomy offence conviction last month.
However, Anwar himself is keen on nominating his second daughter Nurul Nuha to continue the family legacy in the seat.
"Wan Azizah is PKR's choice. Her candidature will get full support from the DAP," said the source.
"Unlike Umno which is still struggling to find a candidate, we are already certain that PKR will win but the question is who will be its candidate for the by-election," he added.
He said Wan Azizah, once elected, would be able to solve Pakatan Rakyat's woes in getting an Opposition Leader in Parliament, previously held by Anwar.
"PAS wants its president Abdul Hadi Awang to be the Opposition Leader. But DAP will not agree to this. So, Wan Azizah will the most suitable to once again lead Pakatan Rakyat in the Dewan Rakyat," said the source.
Wan Azizah had replaced Anwar as Opposition Leader in 1999, after he was jailed for another sodomy conviction and managed to keep the Pakatan Rakyat pact intact.
The source revealed that Anwar on the other hand was keen in bringing Nurul Nuha to the political sphere, as Wan Azizah needed to concentrate in Kajang, where she is state assemblyperson, and PKR.
"Wan Azizah is needed to balance the Selangor government. This will take up time. She will also need to look at party matters. So that will leave her not much time to concentrate in Permatang Pauh," he said.
However, the source said it was still early to confirm on who from PKR will contest the Permatang Pauh by-election.
"What is certain is that PKR will win the by-election. Now it is only, with what majority," he quipped.
Nurul Nuha, 32, a graphic designer, is not someone new to Permatang Pauh as she was mentioned as the potential candidate for the seat at the 2013 general election.
Permatang Pauh, with about 70,000 voters is located in Penang mainland.
Anwar held the seat from 1982 to 1999 before being sentence to jail on April 14, 1999.
His wife took over the seat the same year and held on until 2008. Anwar who was released in 2004 contested the seat in the 2008 general election and retained it.
At the last general election he won the seat with a convicing 11,721 vote majority.
The Election Commission will tomorrow announce dates for the by-election.-B Nantha Kumar,berita daily
Proposed secrecy oath for KWAP is disturbing, says Rafizi
The proposed amendments to the Kumpulan Wang Persaraan (KWAP), Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli has alleged, are designed to prevent the Fund’s investments from being questioned. “The draft amendments, which have been distributed to MPs, will be debated on Tuesday or Wednesday.”
In particular, he added, the amendments would prevent anyone raising the issue of the RM4 billion taken from it by SRC International, formerly a 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) subsidiary, but now wholly-owned by the Ministry of Finance.
“What is particularly disturbing about the amendments is that Bank Negara would no longer have oversight over KWAP and would be removed from its Investment Panel,” said Rafizi who is also PKR Secretary-General.
“These amendments are being made at a time when the Finance Minister has yet to answer the various questions raised on the RM4 billion taken from KWAP by SRC, purportedly for investing in Mongolia, and yet to be returned.”
Bank Negara’s oversight in particular, added Rafizi, was seen as restricting KWAP’s intention to do what it liked when it came to investing abroad or lending to companies like 1MDB which purportedly had investments abroad. “Prime Minister and Finance Minister Najib Abdul Razak has deliberately exposed KWAP to the uncertain risks of investing and lending without oversight by Bank Negara.”
Briefly, the proposed amendments would among others bind KWAP officers to a secrecy oath which would be in force even after they are no longer with the Fund.
The amendments to the KWAP Act opens up new investment fields for the Fund and these include infrastructure development, properties and natural resources, related investments, and high risk financial instruments.
The Finance Minister, after the removal of Bank Negara, would have more supervisory powers over KWAP. Bank Negara’s representative on the Investment Panel would be replaced by one from the Finance Ministry.
Besides, the Finance Minister would appoint four members to the Investment Panel compared with its present three members.- fmt
