KPN KHALID TIADA PILIHAN LAGI

Ketua Polis Negara, Khalid Abu Bakar sebelum ini menyatakan tiada siasatan akan dijalankan terhadap Naib Ketua Pemuda UMNO, Khairul Azwan Harun yang menuduh "Tiga Tan Sri"  terlibat dalam komplot mahu menjatuhkan Najib Razak atas alasan ia hanya berdasarkan andaian semata-mata.

"Tiga Tan Sri" yang dikaitkan itu ialah Gani Patail, bekas Peguam Negara, Abu Kassim Mohamed, bekas Ketua Pesuruhjaya SPRM dan Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz, bekas Gabenor Bank Negara.

Sejujurnya, banyak pihak mahukan dakwaan Khairul Azwan itu disiasat oleh polis kerana hanya setelah siasatan dijalankan, barulah diketahui siapa benar dan siapa salah.
Bahkan, setelah Khairul Azwan bersuara kemudiannya bahawa laporan polisnya bukan berdasarkan andaian, malah yakin tindakannya adalah berasaskan kebenaran, Khalid masih lagi tidak memberi apa-apa respon mengenainya.

Dalam hal yang sama pula, Tun Mahathir Mohamad sudah dua kali membuka mulut berkenaan dengannya. Pertama kali, pada 21 Ogos lalu, beliau menyatakan "Tiga Tan Sri" berkenaan telah dikhianati oleh salah seorang dari kalangan mereka.

Kata beliau, jika tidak dikhianati, Najib Razak sudah pun berdepan dengan tindakan daripada pihak berkaitan sekarang ini.

Ketika itu, Tun Mahathir tidak menyebut siapakah yang mengkhianati "Tiga Tan Sri" terbabit kerana bimbang dirinya akan disaman.

Saya tak boleh biarkan mereka menyaman saya sebab saya tidak memiliki banyak wang seperti Najib, tambahnya lagi.

Bagaimanapun, hari ini Tun Mahathir mula berterus-terang dengan memberi gambaran yang lebih jelas berkenaan perkara yang sama.

Menurut beliau, terdapat empat Tan Sri daripada kalangan mereka dan seorang daripada mungkin telah khianat.

Rasanya tidak sukar untuk meneka siapakah Tan Sri yang di bayangkan oleh Tun Mahathir itu kerana mereka pernah berada dalam pasukan khas yang menyiasat berkenaan 1MDB dan derma RM2,600 juta yang diterima Najib sebelum ini.

Bagaimanapun, bekas Perdana Menteri itu enggan mengia atau menidakkan apabila ditanya sama ada Tan Sri yang dimaksudkannya itu ialah Khalid Abu Bakar, sambil berkata, "saya tak tahu, saya tak tahu, saya tak mahu ditangkap."

Dengan perkembangan ini, Khalid nampaknya sudah tiada pilihan lain melainkan membuka kertas siasatan secara menyeluruh, bukan saja berkaitan penggulingan Najib sebagaimana yang didakwa Khairul Azwan, bahkan juga sama ada benar atau tidak "Tiga Tan Sri"  terbabit telah dikhianati serta siapa yang mengkhianati mereka.

Kenapa mereka dikhianati? Apakah tindakan yang mahu mereka ambil terhadap Najib? Apa dan besar mana kesalahan Najib itu?
Adakah sebelumnya keempat-empat Tan Sri berkenaan sudah bersetuju untuk bertindak terhadap Najib, tetapi kemudian salah seorang daripadanya telah bersikap khianat?

Apakah punca perbuatan khianat itu?

Banyak perkara sebenarnya perlu disiasat oleh pihak polis apabila Tun Mahathir membuka mulutnya untuk kali kedua ini. Khalid sendiri, dalam masa yang sama, tidak seharusnya terus mendiamkan diri saja kerana ia nampaknya bukan saja berkaitan Najib,  nama baik "Tiga Tan Sri", kebenaran dakwaan yang dibuat oleh Khairul Azwan, tetapi juga tentang dirinya sendiri.

Najib: LRT3 project must meet world-class standards

PM announces a 50 per cent discount for RapidKL, LRT and Monorail lines for travel between 6am and 7am, beginning Sept 16.
najib-lrt
SHAH ALAM: Prime Minister Najib Razak today stressed that the Light Rail Transit 3 (LRT3) project, which would be used by about two million people in the Western Corridor of Greater Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley, should meet world-class construction standards.
He said the project, which would provide convenience to commuters in Klang, Shah Alam and Petaling Jaya, should also be of high quality, as safety should not be compromised.
“I understand that a new technology known as ‘U-Trough’ will be used, which is an improvement over the conventional system currently being used in our country.
“This is expected to speed up the process and timeframe in terms of its implementation,” he said when launching the project at the Malawati Stadium in Shah Alam here this evening.
Present were Selangor Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali, Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai, Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Noh Omar and Prasarana Malaysia Bhd Chairman Ismail Adam.
The construction of the LRT3 project, which will be undertaken by Prasarana and scheduled to begin early next year, will be completed by Aug 31, 2020, at a cost of RM9 billion.
Five of the LRT3 stations will be integrated with either existing lines or new ones.
The prime minister said that with the new interchanges, LRT3 would be able to reduce traffic congestion, increase the mobility of workers, and create new job opportunities in the Klang Valley upon its completion by 2020.
He said the LRT3 project, which would include 26 stations spanning over 37km, was expected to be completed on schedule, despite the cost limitations.
Najib also expressed his confidence that the project would bring many benefits to the people, including a feeder bus system in areas nearby the stations.
“A total of 10 LRT3 stations will have ‘park and ride’ facilities to encourage more Malaysians to park their cars there, rather than driving into the city centre, which is more convenient and cost effective.”
Najib also thanked the Selangor state government for its cooperation in the smooth implementation of the project, despite political differences.
“We should remember, that the people always come first,” he said to loud applause from the guests.
Meanwhile, the prime minister also announced a 50 per cent discount for RapidKL, LRT and Monorail lines for travel between 6am and 7am, beginning Sept 16.

Sanjeevan arrested again, just after visiting his lawyer

MyWatch chairman's lawyer Gobind Singh Deo says cops arresting of Sanjeevan unnecessary as he is willing to cooperate fully.
gobind-sanjeevan-1
PETALING JAYA: Malaysian Crime Watch (MyWatch) Chairman R Sri Sanjeevan has been arrested yet again.
Sanjeevan’s lawyer Gobind Singh Deo told FMT that police arrested his client at 6.15 pm outside the Puchong MP’s office in Medan Damansara.
“He left my office about 6.10 pm. As his car was leaving, a police car blocked his path before another police car came from the back and they arrested Sanjeevan.”
Gobind said the arresting officers informed him that Sanjeevan was being investigated under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property and would be held at the Cheras police headquarters.
He added that other details were not available.
Those found guilty under Section 420 of the Penal Code can be punished with a jail term of one to 10 years, whipping and a fine.
Gobind, however, decried the way Sanjeevan was arrested, describing it as unnecessary.
“There is no need to arrest him like this.
“If police want him produced at the police station or court, they can just inform him or us as his lawyers,” he said, adding Sanjeevan and his office would willingly cooperate.
Sanjeevan has been in and out of court on multiple charges of extortion, having first been detained on June 22 on suspicion of criminal intimidation and extortion.
Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar said since Sanjeevan’s first arrest, more reports had been lodged against the “crime buster” by those claiming to have been extorted by him.
Last week, Sanjeevan himself lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) against Khalid, whose brother, Sanjeevan claims, owns a shooting academy.
In a Facebook posting, Sanjeevan confirmed he was taken to the Cheras police station and he expected to be charged at the Jalan Duta courts tomorrow morning.

He said the body was sent to the Queen Elizabeth Kota Kinabalu for a post-mortem.
He urged anyone with information on the case to contact Insp Mohamad Alif Mohd Razali at 088-912222.
On Monday, a newly-born baby girl, with the umbilical cord intact, was found abandoned in front of an apartment unit in Jalan Jelawat 2, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.
Cheras Police Chief ACP Chong Kok Sin said a 24-year-old woman was picked up at the police station at 10.30pm yesterday.
A 25-year-old man was also detained yesterday in connection with the same case, he said.
“Both of them will be remanded until Friday. Initial investigations found that the man lives in the apartment,” he told Bernama.

STRAIGHT TALK FROM DOWN UNDER WITH LAWYER QUINTIN ROZARIO – PT 1

Malaysian-born Australian lawyer Quintin Rozario.
Malaysian-born Australian lawyer Quintin Rozario.
Malaysian-born Australian lawyer Quintin Rozario made headlines when he took a swipe at the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) to seize assets allegedly linked to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) as legally flawed.
Rozario pointedly noted that by making public statements on Malaysian individuals allegedly to have laundered illicit funds into the US, its Attorney-General Loretta Lynch had herself committed “excesses and breaches of natural justice”.
The Brisbane-based lawyer insisted that Lynch overstepped the mark and her authority by concluding that an offence or offences had been committed by Malaysia or its agents.
“She went further by implying that they were guilty of the offence by making assertions without a scintilla of proof or a valid court decision that could back her assertions.
“In order for that to occur, the Malaysian defendants ought to first to have been heard. They were not,” said the 65-year-old legal counsel.
Rozario’s outspoken views however, were not taken lightly by some readers.
Some went berserk in their comments to ridicule Rozario after a blog operated by a certain British writer uploaded his article – ‘US DOJ action on 1MDB legally flawed, says senior Aussie lawyer’.
An over enthusiastic commentator was slapped with a notice of legal action for going overboard with his nasty remarks against Rozario.
Fearing serious legal repercussion, King Leong, a Malaysian from Penang working in a senior position in a bank in Australia, instantly retracted his comments and apologised to Rozario, which was published under title – ‘SR reader apologises to senior Aussie lawyer’.
The senior lawyer from down under has recently ‘returned home’ to Malaysia for a private business.
Malaysia Outlook managed to engage Rozario for an exclusive interview in between his busy schedules meeting his clients.
His answers in this part one of two series shall clear doubts lingering in our readers mind.
He provided answers to add more clarity on his assessment on the DOJ purported suit that certainly caught national, if not international, attention.
Excerpts of the interview as below:
MO: Has the US DOJ filed the civil suit against the four, who were supposed to have ‘stolen’ monies from 1MDB?
QR: Not to my knowledge. It appears from the comments by the DOJ and from various sources close to the four that no steps have been taken by the DOJ to either file criminal complaints or civil suits against any of them. A civil suit will not be the appropriate course of action by the DOJ considering the allegations against the 4 amount to criminal conduct. If they were to file a civil suit, it would appear as a lawyer Noorharjan suggested “a strange way to proceed” when after all the DOJ suggested they had committed a criminal offence. If the DOJ had the evidence they suggested they have then, they ought to proceed on the basis that requires of the DOJ the higher standard of proof (beyond reasonable doubt) that the lower threshold set for civil standard of proof.
The question is has the U.S. Doj filed anything pertaining to its '1MDB Case' following its "gung-ho" press conference on July 20, 2016.
The question is has the U.S. Doj filed anything pertaining to its ‘1MDB Case’ following its “gung-ho” press conference on July 20, 2016.
MO: Can you explain what would be the legal and political consequences arising from the US DOJ civil suit?
QR: The legal and political consequences for Malaysia arising out of the DOJ’s “civil suit” if it indeed proceeds along the lines of its threats are many fold and far reaching. Firstly it would set a precedent whereby a country like the US (and the other powers) being able to bully and coerce into submission the legitimate governments of smaller countries and the wills of their citizens if they disobey or refuse to ceded their sovereignty and rights to the will of a more powerful US (in this case). The political consequences would be more troubling. The majority Malays joined by some right thinking non Malays will react. That reaction may not be immediate as the Malays have a history of reacting slowly to any bullying or insults on them. But it will undoubtedly radicalize the hotheads amongst the Malays, as well it will pave the way and justify China’s assertiveness in the region.
MO: Should the Malaysian government entertain the DOJ suit?
QR: The Malaysian government ought to have requested of the DOJ the evidence and the nature and background to the proposed civil suit and demanded an explanation as to why they were not first consulted on the matter. After all US attorney general Loretta Lynch’s comments allude to Malaysia and some of its government officials as having been complicit in the “theft” (from the words stolen funds) and a conspiracy to launder stolen money in the US. It really is not a matter now for the Malaysian government to do anything than to wait the service of process on the appropriate government body (the attorney general or the individuals thus far unnamed and unidentified by the DOJ) before taking any steps to defend or to respond in any way to the allegations.
The individuals named (if served) have as I understand it 60 days within which to respond to the allegations against them. If I were to advise any of them, it would be to accept service but to give nothing to the DOJ. The DOJ in my view has not made out a prima facie case against anyone yet.
Under US law the onus is on the 4 individuals named to prove their innocence to the charges against them. This may present a slight problem but not an insurmountable one for each of them. Each one having been served individually (if they have been served process) will be represented separately. Each one then separated from the other will be compelled to act in their own interests ignoring the interests of their co-defendants. Such a strategy would offer the DOJ opportunities to “connect the dots” so to speak to reinforce their case against the four.
MO: Based on US law, can Malaysian government be an intervener or strike off the civil legal suit? Anyway, should Malaysian government intervene to strike off the suit?
QR: Considering the allegations are that Malaysian officials (and by that I interpret it as being Malaysian government officials) were involved in a conspiracy to defraud the Malaysian sovereign fund (government property) I would have thought the government of the US would have notified the Malaysian government of their “findings” from their “investigations” into this conspiracy to launder money – Malaysian money. It would have given the Malaysian government the time and opportunity to consider the evidence and the offences alleged and the charges being laid before Loretta Lynch launched her tirade against Malaysia. Malaysia in my view and from the evidence was not afforded such an opportunity. It was an ambush and one that was totally uncalled for.
Malaysia and the 1 MDB fund would have been the proper defendants in such a suit. 1MDB could still interplead in this proceeding. However I am unaware of the strategy being adopted by the Malaysian government.
MO: Could US DOJ to initiate criminal action?
QR: Criminal action is a distinct possibility. Going by what Loretta Lynch alleged, she suggests a crime or crimes were committed by persons unnamed. But for the US DOJ to file criminal charges, they must firstly prove a prime facie charge of criminal conduct against the four. That would occur before what in the US they call a grand jury where they set out the material facts and evidence to support their case.
MO: The complainants behind the US DOJ suits were Sarawak Report (SR) and former Umno member Khairuddin Abu Hassan. Do you think, from legal point of view, they have a locus standi to lodge the reports to DOJ on 1MDB?
QR: The laws to bring a private prosecution have existed in many countries for years. The conditions for the initiating private prosecution are found in Halbury’s Laws of England which states amongst other things that in the absence of statute to the contrary or preventing such private prosecution, a person on their own initiative may, without preliminary consent first had, initiate proceedings with a view to indictment. Private prosecution may only be initiated in exceptional circumstances where the appropriate local authorities have failed or refuse and wrongly failed to bring about a prosecution.
The US is amore litigious society than most, where almost anyone or everyone can bring about a prosecution without prior consent of the parties involved. The DOJ has those powers to undertake litigation on the complaint of others like the Sarawak Report and UMNO member Khairuddin Abu Hassan as alleged. However it would appear that because this is a complaint against a sovereign state, the US would have required a request to intervene in the affairs of Malaysia (which is what this is) by someone with the express or ostensible power and authority to file such a complaint with them (the DOJ). It appears from leaks beginning to surface that someone from the Bank Negara and two sitting members of parliament (in government benches) may have also lent their names to the complaint to the DOJ. The evidence to support the complaint against 1MDB and the Malaysian government appears to be scant and circumstantial.
U.S. AG Loretta Lynch approach to the '1MDB case' was at best controversial.
U.S. AG Loretta Lynch approach to the ‘1MDB case’ was at best controversial.
MO: The U.S. Attorney-General Loretta Lynch has become a judge, jury and executioner all in one, plus an international bully. What action the Malaysia government or 1MDB can take to reprimand Lynch? Or shall they just leave it? (Daimler vs Baume)
QR: Loretta Lynch is a Democrats (Party) nominee and appointee to the position of Attorney general. She is in the final throes of her tenure as AG of the US. Loretta Lynch’s approach to this case (DOJ) is no different to a number of other cases in which her decisions and approach were at best controversial. At worst they were based on misleading unreliable information and misdirection. Her department’s admonishment by Texas judge Andrew Napolitano is legend and worrying. He accused the DOJ and the FBI of lying and misleadingthe court – a serious allegation against the nation’s top law enforcement officers and their agencies. Loretta Lynch is in election year mode. She feels no responsibility for her actions. In the US state and federal prosecutors have absolute and in some cases qualified immunity from prosecution for failures in the execution of their work as prosecutors. In other words they may act as irresponsibly as they can without fear of retribution.
The Malaysian government has no powers or capacity to reprimand Loretta Lynch. It is up to the US to do so if they will. A Donald Trump victory is likely to uncover the handiwork of Lynch in office. The allegations of her ‘accidental meeting’ with Bill Clinton recently which resulted in her refusing to prosecute Hillary Clinton, wife of Bill Clinton and democratic party presidential nominee, is beginning to come apart at the seams. More detailed classified emails revealing hers and Hillary’s deception over the private emails scandal Hillary is embroiled in will eventually reveal the credibility of the woman at the heart of the 1MDB complaint, Loretta Lynch. Being an outgoing AG she has little responsibility to anything and will be forgiven and hopefully forgotten once she leaves office later this year.
MO: A SR reader had apologised for his nasty and unsavoury remarks against you over your statement under the Bernama article – ‘The US DOJ suit was legally flawed’. Do you feel vindicated? Are you going to further your action against this reader, King Leong? Y/N … Why?
QR: When one speaks out, there is often the expectation that someone or other will comment adversely on what we have to say. In my case it was King Leong and a number of individuals belonging to various evangelical Christian church groups in Malaysia. They decided to play the game of ‘chicken’. An apology and retraction only mitigates the damage done. It does not purge the defamation altogether. There were a few others who phoned me courtesy of a church member who also withdrew and apologised. I don’t intend to give these sorts any more attention than they deserve. It is more a reflection of who they are and their level of intellect. There is one more recent whom I intend to prosecute whether he apologises or not. But I will keep my powder dry for the present.
… to be continued.

WHO IS THE TAN SRI WHO ‘BETRAYED’ THE UNHOLY ANTI-NAJIB CONSPIRACY?

Mahathir-Zeti-Abu-Kassim-Gani-PatailMahathir should reveal who is the Tan Sri who betrayed these three Tan Sris.
(Malaysia Outlook) 

So there were four Tan Sris involved in a conspiracy to oust the legitimately appointed Prime Minister and one of them betrayed the other three.
Or else Prime Minister Najib Razak would have been out of job by now.
This is what former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad clarified today.
He said there were four Tan Sris involved in the conspiracy and one of them had allegedly betrayed the rest.
“Well, there were four of them, one of them was not included,” the former Umno president clarified on his previous statement on the matter.
Mahathir hinted that the one Tan Sri that he did not mention in his statement last Saturday, would be the ‘traitor’ who betrayed the other three.
Asked if he was referring to IGP Khalid Abu Bakar, who is also a Tan Sri, Mahathir replied: “I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t want to be arrested.”
Last weekend, he gave the impression that it was one among the three Tan Sris – Bank Negara Governor Zeti Akthar Aziz, former Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail and former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief Abu Kassim Mohamad, who betrayed the conspiracy to oust Najib.
Mahathir claimed that if not for the alleged act of betrayal, the prime minister would have faced action by now.
Although many believed that Mahathir was the mastermind behind the conspiracy to oust Najib, the former premier however claimed he was not part of it.
Mahathir exposure in a way confirmed widespread speculations that the Tan Sris who were supposed to loyally, honestly and sincerely serve the government of the day, were actually in involved in an unholy conspiracy to overthrow the Prime Minister!
Last month, Umno Youth vice-chief Khairul Azwan Harun filed a police report alleging Zeti, Gani Patail and Abu Kassim of plotting against Najib.
Khairul Azwan claimed the three Tan Sris provided classified information to foreign agencies without authorisation and that the three could have falsified the details to achieve their agenda.
But IGP Khalid has said police would not investigate the report, claiming that the Umno Youth leader had reacted on hearsay.

WHEN GANI SOLD OUT ZETI AND ABU KASSIM

mt2014-corridors-of-power
On 24 July 2015, Najib confronted Gani who panicked and revealed that there was a plot to force him to resign during the Cabinet meeting of 29 July. Najib then launched a pre-emptive strike and killed the coup. And this is what upset Mahathir three days ago, prompting him to say there were three Tan Sri and that one betrayed the other two. Realising that he blundered by saying that, today Mahathir says there is a fourth Tan Sri who betrayed the three, insinuating that the betrayer was the IGP when in actual fact the betrayer was Gani.
THE CORRIDORS OF POWER
Raja Petra Kamarudin
Three days ago, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad grumbled that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak would be in jail today if not for the fact that the three Tan Sri tasked with the job of nailing him were betrayed. The impression Mahathir gave was that one of the three Tan Sri betrayed the other two.
The three Tan Sri are former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief Abu Kassim Mohamed, former Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail, and former Bank Negara Governor Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz.
Today, Mahathir backtracked on that earlier statement and suggested that there were four and not three Tan Sri and that the one Tan Sri who was not betrayed is the one who betrayed the other three. This was what Malaysiakini reported today:
Dr Mahathir Mohamad has clarified that there were four individuals with the title ‘Tan Sri’ and one of them could have allegedly betrayed the rest. Previously, the former prime minister gave the impression that it was one among the three accused of plotting against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak who was the purported turncoat.
“Well, there is one who is not included. There were four of them, one of them is not included. It is probable that the one (not included) is the one who betrayed,” he told reporters in Putrajaya.
So, now Mahathir says there were actually four and not three Tan Sri in that ‘gang’ — Abu Kassim, Gani, Zeti and one more. And the Tan Sri who was not betrayed was the one who betrayed the other three, said Mahathir. Since everyone knows that the Special Task Force that was set up to investigate 1MDB was headed by four Tan Sri — the three named above plus the IGP — the reporters asked Mahathir whether the Tan Sri who betrayed the three was the IGP.
Mahathir smiled and said he does not know and cannot confirm who the fourth Tan Sri who betrayed the other three is for fear of getting arrested.
So, according to Mahathir, it was four and not three Tan Sri who were tasked with the job of bringing down Najib. Malaysia Today actually said last year that if was six Tan Sri if you include Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Tan Sri Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah. Anyway, Sarawak Report has confirmed the rest of the team in the graphics below.
Conspirators
Yesterday, Sarawak Report also confirmed what Mahathir said today — that there were four Tan Sri in the team that was supposed to oust Najib.
What is most interesting about what Sarawak Report said is that they confirmed what Malaysia Todaysaid for the last one year. And Mahathir as well did the same thing — confirmed what Malaysia Todaysaid for the last one year. Suddenly I am at a loss as to what to write other than ‘I told you so’.
This is what LSS has to say on the matter:
Whether deliberately or accidentally, Mahathir’s implicit confirmation that there was a conspiracy to topple Najib by the three Tan Sri and the subsequent posts by RPK and other UMNO blogs have caused an adverse reaction.
Both Uncle Lim Kit Siang and Sarawak Report have reacted to this. But Sarawak Report has gone too far in their latest article by saying that the DYMM YDP Agong had agreed with the three Tan Sri to remove Najib.
According to Sarawak Report, this was why Najib launched a counter-coup to remove Muhyiddin, Shafie Apdal, the Special Branch Head and A-G Gani.
However, the problem with Sarawak Report’s version is that it scandalises and slanders DYMM YDP Agong by suggesting that YDP Agong made a U-turn and became quiet and continued to support Najib for whatever reason after Najib had removed those four persons.
There can only be two outcomes from Sarawak Report’s story:
1) SR had lied about the Agong having agreed with the three Tan Sri; or
2) Our Agong did not do the right thing for the country after Najib had removed the four persons.
Which one is true, SR? Version 1 or version 2?
I think Sarawak Report has made a grave mistake to drag our Agong into their story and I am sure there will be an adverse reaction from many Malaysians. This adverse and immediate reaction from Uncle Lim Kit Siang and Sarawak Report shows that the conspiracy story will probably get even more hangat over the coming weeks.
I also think that Mahathir made a very bad judgement in suggesting the three Tan Sri got betrayed by one of their own and had implicitly confirmed the conspiracy suspicions which has now led to this story fromSarawak Report.
Sarawak Report
SeaDemon Says also published his opinion in his blog today as follows:
Muhyiddin was the first one to admit that there was a conspiracy to topple Najib Razak. Then recently Mahathir himself named the conspirators as former Governor of Bank Negara Zeti Aktar Aziz, former Attorney-General Gani Patail, and former head of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Abu Kassim. Mahathir’s favourite news portal Sarawak Report has now joined in and underscored the role of the three in trying to bring down Najib Razak. This time around, the Sarawak Report (SR) has gone overboard by including His Majesty The Yang DiPertuan Agong into the conspiracy. (READ MORE HERE)
Actually there is a bit more to the story than what Mahathir and Sarawak Report are telling us and the person who spilled the beans was actually Gani Patail and not the IGP. And this was what happened:
On the afternoon of Friday, 24th July 2015, Najib summoned Gani to his office and asked him whether it is true that he had prepared a charge sheet to arrest him (Najib) and that the charge sheet had been prepared two months before that, and even before the Special Task Force was launched and the investigation into the affairs of 1MDB had started.
Najib then asked Gani whether the Special Task Force had been set up with the consent of His Majesty the Agong since it definitely was not set up at the behest of or with the consent of the Cabinet. And should the charge sheet not have been prepared after the investigation had been completed and after a crime had been established rather than even before the investigation had started?
Najib also asked Gani whether it is true that Abu Kassim gave a copy of this charge sheet to his business partner, Rashpal Singh, for him to deliver to Clare Rewcastle Brown of Sarawak Report and that Rashpal had flown to London to meet Clare.
It is well known within the MACC circle that Rashpal has been Abu Kassim’s business partner since before his MACC days and that Rashpal is his bagman who collects under-the-table money on his behalf. Hence there is no one Abu Kassim trusts more than Rashpal to handle extremely sensitive and confidential matters such as the sale of classified documents and dealings with Sarawak Report.
In fact, in one blog posting last year, Clare actually confirmed that she met someone from Malaysia and that during this meeting she was followed and photographed. She also said she has lodged a report with the UK police regarding this matter.
When Najib revealed that he knew about everything that was going on, Gani panicked and confessed to the whole thing. Gani suspected that maybe the IGP had informed Najib regarding the details of the plot so he might as well come clean and confess.
That same evening, Najib met His Majesty the Agong during a dinner function and he informed His Majesty about the meeting with Gani a few hours earlier. His Majesty was outraged and told Najib to come see him on Monday morning, 27th July 2015.
On Monday, Najib went to meet His Majesty who handed him a letter terminating Gani’s services as the Attorney General. The following day, 28th July 2015, Gani was officially removed as the Attorney General, and the following day, 29th July 2015, Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin was removed as well.
In that 24th July meeting, Gani revealed that Muhyiddin was going to use that charge sheet to force Najib to resign with him (Muhyiddin) taking over as the new Prime Minister and that if Najib refuses to reign Muhyiddin would use that charge sheet to arrest him (Najib).
On that 29th July Cabinet meeting, instead of Muhyiddin using that charge sheet that Gani had prepared to arrest Najib, Muhyiddin and Gani got axed. And contrary to what they alleged, it was His Majesty the Agong who removed Gani and not Najib who removed Gani without the Agong’s consent.
So on that score Sarawak Report, the ANC (Anti-Najib Campaign) and the Pakatuns, are wrong. It is just that Gani knows what happened and he knows why it happened but be cannot say so lest everyone would know it was he who sold out the rest of the five Tan Sri.
After that both Muhyiddin and Tengku Razaleigh tried to cover their backs by saying that they were aware of the conspiracy to oust Najib and they also know who are those involved in the conspiracy, which was supposed to have happened on 29th July 2015, but that they were not part of the conspiracy.
