If Najib can get away with the 1MDB “kleptocracy at its worst” in the 14GE, what is there to prevent Malaysia from scaling greater kleptocratic heights after the general election with 2MDB, 3MDB and worse money-laundering scandals which will make 1MDB scandal look like peanuts?
This has never happened before.
Malaysia singled out in an international forum as the No. 1 rogue nation in the world, with the United States Attorney-General Jeff Sessions condemning 1MDB, the brainchild of the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, as “kleptocracy at its worst” at the Global Forum on Asset Recovery (GFAR) co-organised by the UK and US governments on 4th December DC.
Again, never happened before, news reports of Sessions’ castigation of Malaysia as global kleptocracy completely blacked out by UMNO/BN owned and controlled mainstream media, whether online or printed, in the country – whether the New Straits Times, Utusan Malaysia, Berita Harian or The Star.
I shudder to think that if Najib can get away with the 1MDB “kleptocracy at its worst” in the impending 14th General Election, what is there to prevent Malaysia from scaling greater kleptocratic heights after the general election with 2MDB, 3MDB and worse money-laundering scandals which will make 1MDB look like peanuts?
If Najib can get away scot-free from the international multi-billion dollar 1MDB money-laundering scandal, the “wonder boy” of the 1MDB scandal, Penang billionaire Jho Loh may even return to Malaysian shores like a conquering hero to receive a hero’s welcome, although for the past several years, he had become a fugitive from justice cruising from one port-of-all to another in his US$265 million SuperYacht Equanimity, bought from 1MDB funds.
In the 13th General Election, Jho Loh masterminded a special operation against the DAP in Penang and in particular to oust Penang Chief Minister, Lim Guan Eng, from the Air Puteh State Assembly seat, with money flowing ike water in the constituency, with free dinners, free-wheeling angpows and lucky draws costing tens of millions of ringgit in the whole paraphernalia of give-aways to Air Puteh voters.
Would Jho Low operate on a national canvas in the 14GE with money flowing like water to fund gifts and giveaways to the voters of Malaysia to steal the next general election?
If Najib can get away with the 1MDB scandal in the 13th General Election, it would be a double vindication – for Najib and for Jho Loh!
It will be a day of infamy for Malaysia!
