Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin mendedahkan hari ini bekas peguam negara Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail memberitahu derma RM2.6 bilion di dalam akaun Datuk Seri Najib Razak merupakan 1 perbuatan jenayah.
Bekas timbalan perdana menteri itu berkata, lebih menghairankan, walaupun yang didakwa melakukan kesalahan ialah Najib, Umno menggantung keahliannya.
"Mengenai wang yang dikatakan masuk ke akaun peribadi Najib dari SRC International, saya diberitahu mengenainya oleh mantan peguam negara sendiri beserta dengan buktinya sekali yang sah merupakan suatu perbuatan jenayah! Saya beristighfar!
"Yang menjadi punca segala masalah Umno hari ini bukan saya, tetapi Najib.
"Peliknya, yang digantung adalah saya, manakala Najib terus bersenang-lenang menikmati kuasa jawatan dan wang yang ada padanya," kata Muhyiddin dalam satu kenyataan di Facebook hari ini.
Muhyiddin turut mempersoalkan adakah membantu presiden itu bermaksud mempertahankan kesalahannya.
"Saya tidak fikir begitu. Jika Datuk Seri Najib melakukan kesalahan, maka wajib bagi saya dan yang lain-lain di dalam Umno menegurnya dan meminta dia memperbetulkan kesilapannya demi kebaikan parti.
"Jika dia berterusan melakukan kesilapan, dan semua orang di dalam Umno bersekongkol mempertahankan kesilapannya, maka kesan buruk akan terpalit kepada Umno," katanya.
Sebelum penggantungannya semalam, beberapa pemimpin Umno mendesaknya agar setia membantu kepimpinan presiden parti. - tmi
Gani Patail tak mahu ulas dakwaan Muhyiddin
Muhyiddin dedahkan pemimpin Umno kecamnya sekarang mahu Najib undur sebelum ini
Ex-AG showed me proof on Najib and SRC, it was clearly a crime...
Muhyiddin said from the evidence, it was apparent that a crime had been committed.
"About the money from SRC International that went into Najib's personal bank accounts, I was personally informed by the former attorney-general (Abdul Gani Patail) together with evidence which clearly showed it to be a criminal act," he said in a press statement this morning.
The MACC had investigated the deposits of RM42 million from SRC International and US$681 million from an offshore account into Najib's personal bank accounts.
The new attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali earlier this month said there was no case and refused to prosecute but the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is appealing the decision.
Both Muhyiddin and Gani were removed from office in July last year as Najib moved to purge his opponents after the massive deposits were made public by the Wall Street Journal.
Muhyiddin was yesterday suspended as Umno deputy president for his criticisms of Najib.
Najib's former deputy also lamented that the Umno supreme council has chosen to ignore the facts and have instead gone after him instead of the prime minister.
"The one involved in the 1MDB and RM2.6 billion scandals is not me but Najib.
"The one who received RM42 million from SRC International is not me but Najib.
"The one investigated by the MACC and faces the risk of prosecution is not me but Najib.
"The one who is rejected by the majority of rakyat is not me but Najib.
"The one that is the cause of all of Umno's problems is not me but Najib.
"Strangely, the one that is suspended is me while Najib continues to enjoy the power of his position and money," he said.
However, Muhyiddin thanked the few Umno leaders who still stood by him.
"I appreciate all those who have expressed support and stood with me in this struggle.
"Shafie Apdal and Mukhriz Mahathir have expressed their support from early on. To the two of them, I say thank you for supporting me.
"To the Umno grassroots leaders, particularly the Gabungan Ketua Cawangan Malaysia, who have courageously stood by the truth, I say congratulations.
"I am also grateful for the stance of Pagoh Umno which has been unwavering in braving the wave. Let us continue our struggle," he urged. - mk
Gani refuses to comment on what Muhyiddin said
Will Muhyiddin cross the Rubicon and quit UMNO...
The most effective way for party dissidents Muhyiddin and vice-president Mohd Shafie Apdal to make a dent in Umno president Najib Abdul Razak’s seemingly formidable armour is to leave, banking on creating a strong ripple effect as the two jump ship.
“If they are willing to do so, Barisan Nasional will lose at least two parliamentarians. The number may not be significant but at least there is a new show.
"Once they quit the party, it depends whether they can become the core and prompt others to follow suit," political scientist Wong Chin Huat pitched to Malaysiakini, when contacted.
Ousted from the deputy prime minister’s post last year, Muhyiddin was suspended yesterday by the Umno supreme council for repeatedly speaking out publicly against the party leader.
The potential impact - should Muhyiddin make that leap of faith - should not be underestimated.
He once held the Johor menteri besar’s post, is the BN parliamentarian for Pagoh, and remains its division chief.
Shafie, too, can tip some things over if he shifts his weight. In addition to being the Semporna MP, he is one of the pioneers who paved the way for Umno's entry into Sabah in the early 90s.
Both could get some support from other disgruntled leaders. Prior to today's Umno supreme council meeting, former Kedah menteri besar Mukhriz Mahathir, who was also axed by Najib, has said that any action against Muhyiddin would be “the final nail in Umno's coffin”.
He has also warned that such a move would lead Umno members to leave the party.
Serious about Mahathir
Both Muhyiddin and Shafie joining forces with Mukhriz’s father and former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad in the fight against their common enemy will amplify the chance of Najib’s removal.
Muhyiddin has no other option but to work with Mahathir, argues Universiti Islam Antarabangsa (UIA) assistant prof Maszlee Malik.
"If he wants to walk his talk and save the nation and be viable in politics, he must be serious (in joining hands) with Mahathir.
"Otherwise, he will be kept in (Umno’s) cold storage," he said.
The Malay party, however, attempted to contain the impact of the Muhyiddin factor by suspending his key party position rather than revoking his membership to avoid an internal uprising.
The suspension seems to be a well-planned move to rein in Muhyiddin’s influence but not to the extent of ending his political career.
"If Muhyiddin is kicked out of Umno he will not be alone; 1998 Reformasi will be repeated," he said.
During Reformasi in 1998-1999, sacked deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim led a series of street demonstrations against Mahathir after he was sacked from party, sparking a revolt which echoes were felt a decade later when BN lost its two-thirds parliamentary majority in the 2008 national polls.
Currently, BN has 134 parliamentary seats while the opposition has 87, with Khalid Ibrahim representing Bandar Tun Razak as the sole independent after he was sacked by PKR.
If the Muhyiddin camp makes its move, the ground will at least rumble, even if it doesn’t shift. But can be play a key role in the offensive against Najib?
Ideas chief executive Wan Saiful Wan Jan offers a healthy dose of skepticism in the ex-DPM’s ability to launch a challenge.
"I can't see anything that can be done by Muhyiddin's camp when Muhyiddin himself is not standing up.
"And for now, I don't see any difference whether he or Shafie quits or stays. They haven't been doing much anyway," he said.
Muhyiddin has not clearly indicated that he wants to challenge Najib despite speaking up against his ex-boss, Wan Saiful argued.
"It will not be easy for him to recover (from the suspension) and mount a challenge," he added.
Nevertheless, he said people must wait for Muhyiddin's reaction before they typecast him.
Crossing the Rubicon
For Wong, who is also a fellow at the Penang Institute, Muhyiddin’s suspension is an indicator that infighting within Umno has intensified.
This could push the Muhyiddin camp to cross the Rubicon and quit Umno, said Wong.
However, he pointed out that if Umno grassroots are worried that toppling Najib would imperil the party, Muhyiddin will not get much support, even if they feel he has been unjustly treated.
"But if the backfire among the society is strong and becomes a wave, that's another story," he said.
As Najib collects the scalps of Umno dissidents, another battle is brewing outside the party.
Former law minister Zaid Ibrahim is organising a gathering slated for March 27 to call for Najib's resignation. Mahathir - Najib’s number one nemesis - has since confirmed his attendance.
Wong doesn't rule out a possibility of Najib recruiting PAS to his team if the gathering gains momentum and it looks like he is losing control.
"People like (PAS’ Pokok Sena MP) Mahfuz Omar wants to topple (Najib). (However) if Najib feels a sense of instability and uses hudud to canvass PAS, will PAS be able to resist?" he asked.
With Muhyiddin's suspension, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is tasked with the duties of the deputy president.
According to Wong, Najib's promotion of Zahid is to safeguard himself should he be forced to step down.
"One of the possibilities is that he (Najib) thinks he may not last long and has to negotiate to step down.
"Other people may not be able to protect him; perhaps Zahid can. Helping Zahid to gain power is the only way.
"From this point of view, in the short run, Najib will first probably cut off all these (dissenting) people, then start negotiating for stepping down," he said.
Attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali has cleared Najib in both RM2.6 billion scandal and SRC case, but foreign probes are ongoing and have frozen a number of 1MDB-related bank accounts.
But if Najib can completely neutralise the forces arrayed against him within and outside the party, it is likely he may decide to stay on for many years to come.- mk

Si badut Rani Kulop kasi warning sama Dr.Mahathir...
Aktivis selebriti Abdul Rani Kulop Abdullah memberi amaran kepada bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad agar tidak menyertai himpunan anti-Najib pada 27 Mac ini.
Presiden Pertubuhan Martabat Jalinan Muhibbah (MJMM) itu berkata, himpunan berkenaan dilihat akan menyebabkan negara menjadi huru-hara selain boleh memecahbelahkan kaum Melayu.
“Saya beri nasihat kepada mereka-mereka yang cuba untuk adakan himpunan ini, jangan porak perandakan keadaan dan pecah-belahkan orang Melayu.
“Sebab apabila himpunan ini berlaku, perpecahan yang sangat ketara bangsa Melayu akan menjadi pecah-belah dan kekuatan kita akan jadi kecil,” katanya kepada pemberita di sini, hari ini.
Dr Mahathir sebelum ini secara terbuka menyatakan beliau bersedia untuk menyertai himpunan anti-Najib.
Bagaimanapun, beliau akui hanya akan menyertai himpunan itu jika dijemput oleh pihak penganjur.
Abdul Rani yang mesra dipanggil “ayah” meminta agar orang ramai tidak menyertai perhimpunan berkenaan dan bersatu memperkukuhkan lagi perpaduan dalam negara.
“Seluruh bangsa Melayu mestilah bersatu demi bangsa, agama dan tanah air,” katanya. Baca seterusnya...

MH2 to London turns back after mid-flight engine trouble...
According to a report in UK’s Mirror, the A380 had been flying for one and a half hours and at approximately 21,000 feet when it encountered engine trouble, including a “strange smell” coming from the direction of its engine, forcing an immediate U-turn.
Landing safely back at KLIA, fire engines were on standby. No passengers or crew were reported to be injured.
According to the news portal, earlier reports said the plane was ‘dumping fuel’ off the coast of Malaysia and one passenger tweeted that everyone on board was “calm” and there was no sense of panic either.
Meanwhile Malaysia Airlines Berhad took pains to reply to Twitter users who enquired if there was any truth to the incident by replying: “Hi, kindly note the flight was diverted due to technical issues involving the engine.
“We apologise for the inconvenience caused!”
To a request for any updates by Twitter user Mamuputra, the airlines replied: “Hi, kindly note that the flight has been retimed to 2:30pm as MH2D. We apologize for the inconvenience caused!” - fmt
