Four among teeming questions about the 1MDB and RM2.6 billion in his personal bank accounts

There are four among the teeming questions about the RM42 billion 1MDB scandal and the RM2.6 billion deposited into his personal bank accounts in March 2013 which cry out for instant answer from the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, viz:

1. Did Najib give the green-light for the series of police arrests against Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) investigators and the disruption of MACC investigation into SRC International Sdn Bhd?

Two MACC investigators involved in the SRC International investigation were arrested by police last night after presenting themselves at the Putrajaya district police headquarters.

Both MACC officers also had their offices and homes raided by police.

A sum of RM42 million out of the RM2.6 billion deposited into Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s personal bank accounts originated from SRC International.

Several MACC investigators were investigated under Section 124B of the Penal Code, which concerns activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy.

Najib should explain whether MACC investigators of top government leaders is now considered as likely offences under Section 124 of the Penal Code on activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy, where a person convicted could be jailed up to 20 years?

Or is Najib seriously saying that the unprecedented “war” launched by the police against the MACC was done without his knowledge or authority?

If so, who is the real authority in the government in Malaysia?

2. Is the Prime Minister aware of the pro-Najib blog which appeared on the day the Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and the Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail were sacked, with the clear aqenda for a “Ops Lalang 2015” by the authorities with the mass arrest of over a dozen so-called conspirators in a “Ring of international plotters” to “criminalise” Najib and topple the elected government of Malaysia, targeting leading officers in the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, the Attorney-General’s Chambers and Bank Negara Malaysia, naming the highest officers of these agencies accusing them of being involved in an international plot against Najib, most prominently the Bank Negara Governor Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz.

The Prime Minister and his Ministerial colleagues had been railing against the irresponsible abuse and exploitation of the social media for nefarious purposes, which raises the question why this particular pro-Najib blog seems to have the authority, including immunity and impunity, to make the wildest allegations against certain personalities and accusing them virtually of treason without the authorities taking any notice or action.

Can Najib explain why?

3. Has Najib approved the abolition of the Special Task Force on 1MDB and the RM2.6 billion deposited into his personal accounts, and if so, why.

The revelation that the multi-agency Special Task Force had been killed by the new Attorney-General Tan Sri Apandi Ali was revealed inadvertently by the MACC statement yesterday to explain why it had issued a statement on Sunday that the RM2.6 billion had come from donation and not from 1MHD funds.

Or is Najib saying that he neither knew nor approved the death of the Special Task Force.

4. Najib should explain where the RM2.6 billion came from, and where and to whom the monies have gone to, as a follow-up to the MACC statement on Sunday that the RM2.6 billion was a donation and did not come from 1MDB funds. Furthermore, why Najib failed to admit RM2.6 billion deposited into his personal bank accounts in March 2013 when the Wall Street Journal report first revealed it more than a month ago on July 3, 2015?

These are only four of the teeming questions about the 1MDB scandal and the RM2.6 billion deposits in Najib’s personal bank accounts which cry out for answer.
