There are many things which the former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak should clarify about the monstrous and heinous 1MDB scandal and other mega corruption scandals which he should answer in his shameless “Malu Apa Bossku” visit to Sandakan today, but there are three things which he should not avoid as they had just cropped up in the past two days.
Firstly, he should respond to the 509 first anniversary speech by the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad who said it was “strange” that Najib could still act innocent during the ongoing investigation of the 1MDB scandal and despite the return of some RM1.5 billion misappropriated from 1MDB by the US and Singapore authorities and the criminal and money-laundering investigations by some 10 countries;
Secondly, the revelation by former MACC review panel member, Datuk Lim Chee Wee that Najib was not investigated for corruption when he was Prime Minister because he had sacked Tan Sri Gani Patail as Attorney-General, replacing Gani with Tan Sri Mohamad Apandi Ali, whose single agenda as AG was to protect Najib from any corruption investigation;
Thirdly, the revelation by Deepak Jaikishan in an interview with Al Jazeera that Najib’s wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor was the “de facto prime minister” when the Barisan Nasional was still in power.
Deepak, former close friend and business associate of Najib, said:
“She’s just plain greedy. She wants it all.
“The diamonds, especially the expensive, priceless pieces, were her way of keeping their money. It’s an easy way for her to siphon off the money and to keep it in a very simple place.”
Let Najib throw light on these three items in his “Malu Apa Bossku” visit to Sandakan today, apart from a multitude of other matters in connection with the 1MDB and other mega scandals.
