Najib Was The Big Bad Wolf So Dangerous Even His Own Director Fled For His Life...
First, Najib Razak tried to scam the world that his partner-in-crime Jho Low had scammed him. When that didn’t quite work out, the former prime minister tried to scam the world that Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil (former CEO of SRC International) had scammed him. When that also failed, he blamed the bank for conspiring with Jho Low and Nik Faisal against him.
Najib’s hotshot lawyer, Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, has basically accused everything and everyone – Jho Low (full name: Low Taek Jho), Joanna Yu, Nik Faisal Arif Kamil, Jerome Lee Tak Loong, Terrance Geh Choh Heng, Jasmine Loo, Shahrol Azral Ibrahim, Mohamed Azhar Osman Khairuddin, Ismee Ismail, Suboh Mohd Yassin, and See Yoh Peng – as the bad guys.
Attorney Shafee claims – “My client (Najib Razak) does not deal with his account himself. He was misled and is a victim.” The silly plan was to paint the crooked Najib as the good guy who was misled, tricked, scammed, cheated, swindled, conned, lied, deceived, swindled, exploited, duped, hoodwinked, fooled and whatnot by a group of scammers led by Jho Low.
Because fugitive Jho Low cannot be produced in court to be grilled and questioned, Najib’s defence team thought it was a super-duper brilliant idea to feign ignorance, and even stupidity. They had even read out in court excerpts which were cherry-picked from the “Billion Dollar Whale” book, as if those in the court were gullible kids who believe in magic and unicorns.
The defence lawyers of Najib have also argued that Najib – former premier and finance minister – was a victim of “manipulation” and that “rogue bankers” were involved in handling his bank accounts. Yet, AmBank revealed that they had never received any complaints – not even once – from Najib about how his accounts were being managed by the bank.
Uma Devi, AmBank Jalan Raja Chulan
Uma Devi, AmBank Jalan Raja Chulan branch manager, had testified that ex-PM Najib took no action and made no complaint from 2011 to 2015 despite irregularities in the signatures of signatories he appointed via authorisation letters to the bank. Ms Uma also confirmed that all cheques in Najib’s accounts can only be signed by him, not even Nik Faisal.
Despite insisting that Najib was not a crook, but a victim, in addition to a statement from Dr Shamsul Anwar Sulaiman (former Ihsan Perdana managing director) who claimed his boss (Najib) appeared “shocked and upset” upon learning that someone had transferred money into his private accounts, the defence lawyers could not explain why did Najib happily use the “dirty money” anyway.
Amusingly, for some extraordinary and weird reasons, Dr Shamsul admitted that the so-called “shocked and upset” Najib did not instruct him to lodge a report either with the police or the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) pertaining to the dubious fund transfers – suggesting that the former prime minister knew about the money laundering activities from the beginning.
It has been established in court the money trail from SRC International to subsidiary companies Gandingan Mentari Sdn Bhd and Ihsan Perdana Sdn Bhd. A total of RM42 million from Ihsan Perdana made its way into two personal accounts of Najib between December 2014 and February 2015 – in three tranches of RM27 million, RM5 million, and RM10 million.
In short, former Prime Minister cum Finance Minister Najib Razak received RM42 million from Ihsan Perdana, which in turn received the money from Gandingan Perdana, which in turned received the fund from SRC International, which in turned got the cash from KWAP Retirement Fund. This means one way or another, the despicable Najib had stolen money from KWAP.
Nik Faisal and Jho Low - 1MDB and SRC Scandal
Hotshot lawyer Shafee also could not cook up a more convincing story why Najib Razak closed three bank accounts about a month after he transferred millions of Ringgit to other beneficiaries. It was also unexplainable why Najib, despite him being “upset and shock” over the sudden appearance of RM42 million in his accounts, had abruptly fired (former) Attorney General Abdul Gani Patail in July 2015.
More damaging testimonies were revealed last week when former SRC International director Ismee Ismail exposed how Najib modified the constitution of SRC International Sdn. Bhd. at an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) to make him the “adviser emeritus” of the company – indirectly gave Mr. Najib control of the company, which was a wholly-owned subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
Witness Mr. Ismee also told the court that members of SRC International’s board of directors who refused to abide by minutes containing advice from Najib Razak would be sacked or asked to resign. So, it has been established that Najib, not being satisfied with holding the office of the prime minster and finance minister, had also appointed himself as the chairman of 1MDB and adviser emeritus of SRC International.
Yesterday, on the 29th day trial of Najib, who is facing 7 charges of misappropriation of SRC funds totalling RM42 million, Afidah Azwa Abdul Aziz (Finance Ministry’s Strategic Investment Division deputy secretary) told the court why she had to rush the preparation of Cabinet documents to guarantee SRC International’s RM4 billion loan from retirement fund KWAP – “SRC belongs to Najib”.
Afidah, the 40th prosecution witness, said when she asked her former supervisor Maliami Hamad why the Cabinet memorandum needed to be completed immediately, the response was – “It was ‘orders from above’ and this (SRC) is ‘the PM’s company’.” This means Najib, in contrary to his claim of not knowing anything, had actually maintained an iron grip on SRC International Sdn Bhd.
Ismee Ismail and Suboh Md Yassin
The key witness exposed yesterday how he fled to Bangkok, Thailand, in 2015 out of fear over the scandal. Mr Suboh told the court he contacted the MACC to explain about SRC, which was under investigation by the commission. However, before he could do so, he received a phone call from an anonymous who claimed to be from the MACC, and ordered him to leave the country immediately.
Mr. Suboh exposed – “I was fearful of what was happening and because Najib Razak was in power as the prime minister at that time, I did not know what would happen to me or my family. So I made the decision to run away to Bangkok with my wife for a month.” Suboh also revealed that while in Bangkok, a Thai man handed flight tickets for him and his wife to Abu Dhabi, where they stayed for about a week.
He eventually returned to Malaysia, but was immediately told by Nik Faisal (former CEO of SRC International) to leave the country again after Najib lost his power in the May 2018 general election. However, Suboh said, he had decided not to run anymore. It’s quite easy to establish whether the witness really fled to Bangkok and then to Abu Dhabi before returned home.
If Najib is indeed as innocent as a lamb and had been a victim, as what his lawyer Shafee would like the world to believe, why did Nik Faisal order Suboh to run away? Why did Najib empower himself as the “adviser emeritus” of SRC? Why did he not report to authorities despite being upset and shocked over strangers sending RM42 million into his accounts? Why did he even have to fire A.G. Gani Patail?
Based on the testimonies so far from dozens of witnesses, it can be concluded that Najib was absolutely not a victim to a scam. Instead, he was the main decision maker of SRC International who knew every single transaction involving millions of Ringgit. And Mr. Subor knew the PM Najib was a dangerous man based the gruesome murder of Mongolian Altantuya. - FT

Azmin is pressured by
friends and foe to resign...
Either that outcome, or he sues Haziq Aziz, his nemesis and purported sexual partner, for defamation; for accusing him of being his active gay partner.
There is, of course, a third practical alternative. Wait for the results of an impartial scientific forensic examination of the video in question to see if it has been tempered with! A deepfake, maybe.
One major problem about the third alternative though, the video must first be sent by the PDRM to the laboratories, for there to be results!
So far, after weeks, that rocket-science of a thing has not been done yet. Sending it unilaterally by Haziq or whoever, would deem it to be a partial act. Anyway, the results will be fairly conclusive. Oh, shit! His arrogant sons would freak out!
So far, it’s only the PM and Azmin’s cronies that had insisted that the video was fake. If the empirical finding is that the video was genuine, the PM would look like an idiot.
So let’s spare him that, and wait for Azmin to resign voluntarily. Then NFA!
That will take a bit of time but the pressure from within will mount. There’s only a small window of inefficiency time-lag before PDRM has to act accordingly.
It does look like the rumours that he will quit by the end of the month is quite spot-on.
Enough time for him to collect his IOU’s in preparation for life as an ordinary citizen like us. And maybe enough time for his children to enjoy a private fireworks show in Bali.
The question on everybody’s mind is why did he have to do such a stupid thing, when a whore would suffice?

Zuraidah patut adil...
Zuraidah Kamaruddin kata kalau dia presiden Keadilan dia sudah pecat Haziq Aziz yang mengaku melakukan perbuatan salah mahram dengan Azmin Ali.
Nampak sangat kebencian Zuraidah dan rakus sekali tindakannya. Mungkin kerana beginilah perilaku wanita yang membuat keputusan berlandaskan nafsu menyebabkan Islam mengenakan syarat ketat untuk melantik wanita sebagai pemimpin.
Kerana terlalu cenderung kepada Azmin sehinggakan Zuraidah tidak dapat sabar mahu keputusan segera ke atas Haziq. Bukankah parti sudah membuat ketetapan proses pemecatan itu perlu menerusi proses sepatutnya. Tak boleh sabarkah?
Parti ada perlembagaan dan peraturan. Kalau hendak lakukan apa-apa pun kepada ahlinya mestilah mengikut perlembagaan dan peraturan. Kalau bertindak sesuka hati apa gunanya perlembagaan dan peraturan.
Satu hal nanti, walaupun benci sangat kepada Haziq tetapi Zuraidah sepatut adil kepadanya. Yang Zuraidah patut juga desak disegerakan bukan memecat Haziq tetapi meminta parti memutuskan apakah tindakan sewajar ke atas Azmin sekiranya video itu tulen. Bertindaklah secara adil dan bijaksana, duhai Zuraidah. - mso
Apabila agama ditunggangi untuk menghalalkan cara, maka pemimpin islam versi Pas telah membuat fatwa sendiri demi kelangsungan survival politiki mereka yang semakin kurang mendapat sokongan itu.
Lucunya ketika PAShadi keluar dari Pakatan Rakyat atas alasan hudud mereka ditentang dan tidak disokong, mereka tidak pula mengeluarkan arahan hukum wajib menentang kebobrokan UMNOnajib yang juga keras menentang menentang hudud bersama parti parti komponen mereka.
Bagi penyokong PAS yang sayangkan perjuangan Parti Pas, sudah tentu akan berlaku protes secara besar besaran yang menyebab perpecahan yang besar dalam Pas dengan kerjasama secara terang terangan dengan parti UMNOnajib walaupun pemimpin mereka menafikan dengan megatakan hanya sebilangan kecil.. Pas ibarat retak menanti belah... Nakhoda Ragam
Penuntut hampir dirogol,universiti mau tutup kes...
The federal minister was at the Masjid Negara in KL and not in the state of Johore. From the picture he was not wearing the Baju Melayu Telok Belanga Johor. So why can't he wear black trousers? Is there a federal or state law prohibiting this? The Johore place dress code only applies to the royal residences, state assembly, religious and public events in Johore that are attended by the Sultan and members of the Johore royal family. It has no application nationwide. Aren't eagles becoming extinct in most parts of the world? - Gerard Lourdesamy
