How much is UMNO claiming from the multi-million ringgit items seized by the police from the Pavilion Residences linked to Najib?
UMNO is seeking the return of funds which the police have seized, on the ground that they were being transferred to the new UMNO leadership following Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak’s resignation as UMNO President.
This is most intriguing, Does UMNO know how much it is claiming from the items seized by the police from the Pavilion Residences linked to Najib as belonging to UMNO, and if it is unable provide a list to enumerate the details on the total amount claimed, how can UMNO lay any claim to the funds seized by the police?
What about the 35 bags with jewellery and watches – is UMNO laying a claim to them on the ground that they belonged to UMNO?
What about the 284 boxes of designer handbags – is UMNO laying a claim to them as well?
The federal commercial crimes director Amar Singh has revealed that out of the 72 bags seized during the May 18 operation, 35 contained cash in 26 currencies.
He said it took 22 bank officers three days to count the RM114 million while the value of the items in the remaining 35 bags containing jewellery and watches have yet to be ascertained.
Does Najib know how much of the RM114 million in cash in the 35 bags seized by the Police were donations to UMNO for the 14GE – and if he does not know, what can there be any basis for UMNO to make such a claim?
Will a proper inventory of the UMNO claims be submitted to the Police, stating the amount of donations by the various individuals, confirmed and verified by the various donors on the respective donations involved?
If UMNO cannot submit such an inventory, then what is the basis for any UMNO claim to the monies seized by the Police on the ground that they are donations to UMNO for the 14th General Elections?
If the monies seized by the Police were donations for UMNO for the 14th General Elections, why were they dispersed like ill-gotten proceeds in the various Pavilion Residences?
Furthermore, if they were meant for UMNO for the 14th General Elections, why were they still around after the 14th General Elections were over?
Najib should declare the total amount of donations collected by him for UMNO for the 14th General Elections.
Be that as it may, if UMNO could have the time to lay claim to the monies seized by the Police in the recent 1MDB raids, the UMNO/BN leaders should state whether they have given instructions to all UMNO/BN political appointees to submit their resignations as UMNO/BN coalition had been decisively defeated in the 14GE?
Or are the MCA/Gerakan/MIC/UMNO/BN political appointees going to hang on to their political appointments for as long as possible until they are sacked by the new Malaysian Government?
