Will Najib, as Chairman of Barisan Nasional, assume full responsibility for the fake news on the 1MDB scandal by BN and 1MDB in the past few days and turn himself in to the police for having committed offences under the Anti-Fake News Act?

As Chairman of Barisan Nasional, will Datuk Najib Razak assume full responsibility for the fake news on the 1MDB scandal by Barisan Nasional and 1MDB in the past few days and turn himself in to the police for having committed offences under the Anti-Fake News Act, with the draconian penalties on conviction of a maximum of RM500,000 fine, six years jail or both.

For instance, the Barisan Nasional strategic communications team, which is headed by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datu Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan, said that that Najib had returned most, if not all, of the RM2.6 billion donation he received in 2013.

This a double lie, for Najib had not returned most, and definitely not all, of the RM2.6 billion Donation to Saudi royalty he received in 2013.

The BN strategic communications team made this claim in response to the FaceBook posting by former Cabinet Minister, Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz, asking the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) to clarify if it had known about caretaker prime minister Najib Razak’s infamous RM2.6 billion donation, and how the department had dealt with it at the time.

In an open letter to IRB on her Facebook, Rafidah said she had once been asked about the alleged donation from the Arabs, and if the prime minister had ever been taxed on the amount that had been deposited into his private bank accounts.

She said: “I have no idea… My friends and I became very curious. We would like to ask, and can IRB please clarify and explain to the people at large, is the donation given to the prime minister, and transferred into his personal account, taxable?”

In her posting, Rafidah also questioned if Najib is a registered tax exempt charitable entity, and if he operated the account himself.

Instead of answering these legitimate questions by Rafidah, the BN strategic Communications team made the fantastic claim that Najib had returned most, if not all, of the RM2.6 billion donation.

If it was true that Najib had returned most, if not all, of the RM2.6 billion donation in 2013, Malaysia would not suffer the 3Is of infamy, ignominy and iniquity as a global kleptocracy!

This is because it is a big lie, fake news and false information for anyone to claim that Najib had returned most, if not all, of the RM2.6 billion donation he received in 2013?

There are documentary evidence to show that Najib had received RM2.6 billion donation, not from any Saudi Arabian Royalty, but from 1MDB funds; and although RM2.1 billion was “returned” to the original donor, it was not to any Saudi Arabia royalty but the 1MDB-linked TANORE bank account in Singapore, and that the RM2.1 billion “returned” monies were used to purchase the RM1 billion Equanimity luxury superyacht owned by Jho Low and seized by the Indonesian authorities in Bali in February and the RM144 million pink diamond necklace for the “wife of MO1”, among other squanderings from stolen 1MDB funds.

None other than the head of the BN strategic communications team had admitted that “MO1” was Najib Razak, saying that only an “idiot” would not know that “MO1” was Najib.

Will the Attorney-General prosecute Najib and the BN Strategic Communications Team for the offence of “fake news”, which carries the penalty of RM500,000 fine, six years’ jail or both?

I am setting up a bureau of lawyers from inside and outside the DAP and Pakatan Harapan to consider whether police reports should be lodged against Najib for crimes under the Anti-Fake News Act if Najib is not prepared to turn himself in to the police and confess to violations under the Anti-Fake News Act.
