Challenge to Najib to hold a freewheeling “Answer All on 1MDB” media event in Sydney to reply to 1MDB queries and issues which he had been avoiding and evading for the past three years
Before I left Kuala Lumpur this morning for Gelang Patah, I had issued a media statement asking whether the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak would be going to Sydney to attend the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit for this weekend, as the two issues of 1MDB scandal and Malaysia as a global kleptocracy had been dogging him in his international itinerary.
Since then, Putrajaya has issued a statement confirming that Najib would be going to Sydney for the ASEAN-Australian Special Summit.
I challenge Najib to hold a freewheeling “Answer All on 1MDB” media event in Sydney to reply to 1MDB queries and issues which he had been avoiding and evading for the past three years.
When Najib visited US President Donald Trump at the White House last September, it was quite unprecedented as there was no joint media conference involving Najib at all – although the international press must be very eager to ask the Malaysian Prime Minister questions about the 1MDB scandal and Malaysia as a global kleptocracy!
Would Najib meet the media in Sydney or would he again give it a miss?
If Najib again avoid the international media in Sydney, this would be most extraordinary indeed – creating the spectacle of a Malaysian Prime Minister who is afraid to have a freewheeling media conference with the international press.
Let Najib hold the freewheeling “Answer All on 1MDB” media event in Sydney as a first step of an international campaign by Malaysia to cleanse and purge Malaysia of the 3Is – infamy, ignominy and iniquity – of a global kleptocracy!
