Malaysians are entitled to know what happened in the Week of Long Knives in the last week of July 2015 involving the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Ministe, Attorney-General among others on the 1MDB scandal
Former Prime Ministrer Datuk Najib Razak is suffering a global case of denial syndrome when he claimed that the reason for Barisan Nasional’s defeat in the 14th general election was due to slander by the coalition’s opponents.
Does that mean that recent news reports that police search of locations in the past few days linked to Najib which netted more than 100 kg of gold (costing over RM16 million) and excess of RM1 billion in cash, including 72 bags of money and jewellery as well as some 300 boxes of handbags (making Malaysians the most literate people in the world on Hermes Birkin bags, the “holy grail” of handbags in six to seven-figure price range) are all slander, and if so, why the former Prime Minister had not taken any action to vindicate himself?
In actual fact, it is Najib and the Barisan Nasional leaders who are most guilty of slander in the last general election, for instance his TV3 interview on the night of 7th May where he made the bizarre and astounding claim that there were no Malays attending Pakiatan Harapan ceramahs and that most of them were DAP supporters bussed in from outside the areas and therefore no likelihood of any “Malay tsunami” in the 14GE.
What is most shocking is that more than ten days after the watershed 14th General Election, Najib is still living in his own hallucination.
Isn’t it time for Najib to wake up?
Investigations into the 1MDB scandal, which had stained Malaysia’s international reputation in acquiring the epithet of a global kleptocracy, are now revealing murky depths of the criminality of the Najib administration which had lost all moral moorings to be involved in what the US Attorney-Genereal Jeff Sessions had described in an international conference as “kleptocracy at its worst”.
Malaysians are entitled to know what happened in the Week of Long Knives in the last week of July 2015 involving the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Ministe, Attorney-General among others on the 1MDB scandal, when the country was awash with rumours that the Attorney-General would charge the Prime Minister, Najib for corrupt practices in connection with 1MDB scandal but suddenly on July. 28, 2015, Najib went on to the offensive and the Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail was sacked, Tan Sri Mohamad Apandi Ali resigned from the Federal Court and was sworn in as Attorney-General, the Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was sacked, and the national institutions like the AG’s Chambers, the Police, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and Bank Negara were defanged and tamed with the dissolution of the high-powered Special Task Force of four Tan Sris on 1MDB.
Let the whole story of the Week of Long Knives of July 2015 be revealed and be told to the Malaysian public.
