Najib stripped naked by the Saudis

It has finally happened – former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak literally stripped naked by the Saudis.

When it was reported midday yesterday that the Saudi Arabia Foreign Minister Adel Ahmad Al-Jubeir, who had in 2016 said the RM2.6 billion funds received by then prime minister Najib Abdul Razak was a "genuine donation", is in Malaysia on a three-day visit and would meet the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad today, thinking Malaysians are expecting a news report today that the Saudis have officially repudiated the story that the RM2.6 billion in Najib’s personal banking account in 2013 was a donation from the Saudi Arabia royal family.

In April 2016, Adel, during a meeting with the then foreign minister Anifah Aman in Istanbul, was asked about the multi-billion ringgit in Najib's bank accounts.

Responding to this, Adel had said: "We are aware of the donation and it is genuine with nothing expected in return.

“We are also fully aware that the Attorney-General of Malaysia has thoroughly investigated the matter and found no wrongdoing.

“So, as far as we are concerned, the matter is closed".

For the last 30 months, Najib and his cronies, aides and political allies have referred to Adel's statement in defending Najib.

The chickens have now come home to roost, five years after the deposit of RM2.6 billion 1MDB monies into Najib’s personal banking accounts to “buy” the 13th General Election.

What more has Najib got to say now?
