Najib Moves From Cover Up To Shut Up!

Najib Moves From Cover Up To Shut Up!

27 MAY 2016

The exposure of the full letter sent by Bank Negara to the Parliamentary Accounts Committee (PAC) today has nailed who has been lying for the past many months about 1MDB and who has told the truth.

It was DAP opposition spokesman Tony Pua, who first alerted that there existed such a letter, sent on April 6th.  However, although he is a member of the committee, he and his colleagues had not at first been told about it by their Chairman.

On May 24th Pua revealed that the letter had been sent in response to an earlier PAC demand for further clarification of a previous letter, sent by the Bank on April 4th, which confirmed that a large proportion of the US$1.83 billion, supposedly invested by 1MDB in the PetroSaudi Joint Venture 2009-10, had been sent to a party not connected to the deal, namely the company Good Star Limited.

PAC Chair Hassan Arafin, hand-picked by Najib, doctored the report and hid the Bank Negara letter from members!

This totally contradicted claims by 1MDB, which had produced a letter from the company PetroSaudi, lying that it was the owner of Good Star.

So the PAC wanted to know exactly who did own the company (Sarawak Report had of course revealed full details of the ownership by Jho Low, last year).

Pua also revealed that Najib’s hand-picked new Chairman of the PAC was refusing to allow the committee to interview personnel from the Bank directly, which was why members  had been reduced to communicating by such letters.

It was only at their meeting on May 18th, says Tony, that PAC members realised that the bank had indeed sent a detailed reply to their request, but that the ‘cari makan” Chairman, Hassan Arafin, had not shared it with his colleagues.

Worse, Arafin had (as earlier been reported) also doctored the PAC’s official and unanimously agreed report into the 1MDB affair, by removing the earlier references by the Bank Negara to the fact that Good Star Limited was not linked to the joint venture.

Official Secret!

Najib lied – he said no money was misappropriated and got the Bank to close down its investigation the following day

When Pua and others protested about the withholding of the letter and also the doctoring of the report Najib’s spokesmen responded by explaining that all the information from the Bank had to be treated as an ‘Official Secret’!

Now that this ‘Official Secret’ has been inevitably leaked, Najib has today announced that a police report has been made to hunt down and punish whoever might be responsible for revealing himself, amongst others, to be a liar.

After all, Najib just two days ago announced in a written answer to Parliament that there had been “no misappropriation in 1MDB’s accounts and administration”.  

This, despite the fact that he was one of the few people in the country, who had been allowed to see that Bank Negara letter, proving that hundreds of millions had been siphoned out of 1MDB into a company owned by his own ‘advisor’ to 1MDB, Jho Low!

The Prime Minister has also threatened all Malaysian publications that if they reproduce that letter they will be charged with the heinous crime of revealing state secrets – so here it is in full translation [click here for original]:

Letter was sent April 6th by BNM Deputy Governor, but not revealed to the PAC before they published their report into 1MDB

Information relating to the cancellation of permission to 1MDB under the Exchange Control Act 1953

We refer to the letter, YB Dato, dated 31 March 2016 concerning the letter from PetroSaudi International Limited dated May 22, 2015, which is attached.

2  For information Dato, regarding the letter from PetroSaudi International Limited, one of the documents obtained by the Bank in its investigation into the content of the letter 1MDB contains information provided by the authorities abroad to the Bank. As already communicated to YB Dato before, this information on the ownership of Good Star Limited, as stated in our letter dated March 23, 2016, is received voluntarily from the authorities of the relevant countries.

3  The Bank has contacted the authorities of the countries concerned and have obtained their consent to disclose such information in return for the secrecy imposed on the Bank as follows:
a) Authorities Abroad 1 [Seychelles]
Information regarding the registration GSL:

“Based on information from the authority (the authority responsible for the incorporation of companies, who has the register of members) GSL is beneficially owned by Low Taek Jho”

Authorities Abroad 1 also confirmed that no changes to the status of Beneficial ownership GSL.

The terms of confidentiality of the information are as follows:
1) GSL registration information disclosure is limited to the PAC for intelligence purposes only and not for the courts or the public; and

ii) The Bank shall not disclose the identity of Overseas Authority ally 1 to PAC

b) Authorities Abroad 2 [Singapore]
Information concerning account opening GSL

“GSL applied to open an account with RBS Coutts Bank AG, Zurich on 9th June 2009. Based on information in the application, the sole director and the bearer of the single bearer share in GSL appears to be Smart Power Limited, and the sole director and the bearer of the single bearer share in Smart Power Limited appears to be Low Taek Jho”

Authorities Abroad 2 also states that “Low Taek Jho appears to be the beneficial owner of GSL’s account with RBS Coutts Bank AG, Zurich”

Terms of the confidentiality of information are as follows:
1) The Bank shall inform its responsibilities provided for in momorandum understanding as contained in the annex to the PAC;
ii) The Bank shall not disclose the original copy of the information obtained from the Authority Abroad 2 to the PAC and may only disclose information that is relevant and necessary only to PAC;
iii) PAC proceedings related to information from the Authority Abroad 2 disclosed by the Bank shall be conducted in secret (in camera) without the presence of the public and the media; and
iv) PAC shall issue instructions to the media gag order and any other parties to keep confidential information provided by the Authority Abroad 2 used by the PAC in its proceedings.

5  We hope the feedback given above can give insight into the matters raised by YB Dato. We also hope that the conditions imposed on banks to reveal information on the PAC are met to ensure obligations of the bank under the Memorandum of Understanding is executed and cooperation between banks and foreign authorities maintained all the time. If the PAC intends to use this information in public documents, the affected countries must be notified in advance through the Bank.”

Many Thanks, Nor Shamsiah Yunus, Deputy Governor


No right to protection under such secrecy

It is, of course, a total disgrace that a poxy off-shore country, such as the Seychelles, or anybody else, let alone Najib, should attempt to hide the ownership of a company into which billions of Malaysian public money has been passed in the name of investment for development.

Particularly, if that money has been stolen and then pops up in BSI Bank in Singapore in Jho Low’s private accounts.

Jho Low owns Good Star Limited, as pointed out from Day 1 by Sarawak Report

To do so is a criminal abuse of the secrecy acts by the Prime Minister, in order to cover up his own lies and misappropriations – one can no longer beat about the bush or mince words concerning such an extreme case of public theft.

And this section of the 1MDB scandal only concerns the first early thefts using the British based outfit PetroSaudi.

Part 2 of the 1MDB affair involved even larger thefts, using the Abu Dhabi Aabar fund for cover in an almost identical series of joint venture scams, whilst Part 3 involved stealing money directly from the 1MDB subsidiary SRC International.

Altogether, the Auditor General has confirmed in his own report that US$7 billion has been misappropriated from 1MDB, as also revealed by Tony Pua, who was given access to the information via the PAC.

So, Najib has made the Auditor General’s report an ‘Official Secret’ too!

Gallery of liars

Chief Operating Officer and President Rick Haythornthwaite accused SR of ‘questionable activities’ instead of checking if PetroSaudi really owns Good Star, which it was still claiming last week!

The gallery of liars in this affair are, therefore, now fully exposed, having spent the past year seeking to discredit, denounce and even arrest investigators and critics, such as Sarawak Report and the very many brave individuals in Malaysia, who have refused to be intimidated by Najib’s strong arm tactics to cover up his crimes.

Indeed, a request to INTERPOL remains extant from Malaysia, to issue a Red Notice against the Editor of Sarawak Report, although it has been refused by the international police organisation.

Foremost in the gallery of liars have been the British and Saudi businessmen behind PetroSaudi, who sought to claim that they own Good Star Limited, thereby providing a cover for Jho Low and Najib, in return for a massive 15% ‘brokerage fee’ to individual directors Tarek Obaid and Patrick Mahony and also US$77 million in kickbacks to the Saudi, Prince Turki, another former shareholder of the company.

For acting as “a front” in this affair PetroSaudi also received a massive US$300 million investment into what had been virtually a shell company, which it has used to establish itself as a profitable oil extraction venture, complete with a drill ship bought using 1MDB money.

Tarek Obaid Director and Shareholder of PetroSaudi received tens of millions in kickbacks and an injection of hundreds of millions into his company thanks to the 1MDB scam

Yet when Sarawak Report questioned the company’s President and Chief Operating Officer, the prominent British businessman Rick Haythornthwaite last year if he had authorised the letter from PetroSaudi to 1MDB claiming ownership, he preferred to accuse this blog of  “questionable activities“, rather than checking out the behaviour of his own company.

Haythornthwaite is also the Chairman of MasterCard Global and of the major UK power company Centrica.

Sarawak Report has established that he was also looped in on an extensive deception to present PetroSaudi as the owner of a US$3 billion oil concession in the Caspian Sea/Turkmenistan, when the concession was owned by another company named Buried Hill.

Not only did PetroSaudi use this deception towards 1MDB, when it sought to pretend that it was injecting assets into the joint venture, but it had earlier attempted to present the same falsehood to the Chinese company Sinochem earlier in the year, in a scheme code-named Project Oasis.

It is possible that Mr Haythornthwaite allowed himself to fail to examine the affairs of the company to the extent that he did not realise that PetroSaudi was an enormous deception.

However, why has he continued to fail to these basic checks over the past full year, once the issue was called into question by the eruption of the 1MDB scandal, not only in Sarawak Report, but the entire world media?

Crucially, why didn’t President of PetroSaudi, Rick Haythornthwaite, demand to see the proof of his own company’s ownership of Good Star Limited after Sarawak Report and others pointed out that this was what was being claimed by its Directors?

Indeed, just last week, PetroSaudi through its lawyers has continued to make this claim to the media, in the full knowledge that it was a complete and utter lie.

Patrick Mahony

Patrick Mahony orchestrated the whole deal and also the arrest of the whistleblower in Thailand

The most exposed and blatant liars at PetroSaudi, are the Directors Patrick Mahony and Tarek Obaid, who was the original 50% shareholder of the company.  These are the two businessmen who were involved in every step of the fraudulent joint venture deal, as detailed by Sarawak Report and others.

Theirs were the signatures on each and every document and every lying email went past them.  They also split the massive US$105 million initial kickback, as numerous articles by Sarawak Report and The Edge have detailed, based on the information provided by whistleblower Xavier Justo, who released the PetroSaudi database, which is now in the hands of law enforcers worldwide.

Another Director of PetroSaudi is also exposed in the gallery of liars.  This is Timothy Buckland, the former leader of the legal team at the UK office of the law firm White & Case, which drew up the joint venture with 1MDB, which was conducted under the jurisdiction of British law.

Tim Buckland- his team of lawyers crucially misinformed 1MDB’s Wong & Partners that the Good Star bank account belonged to PetroSaudi

Buckland’s team lied to the lawyers of Wong & Partners acting for 1MDB, when they said that the Good Star Limited account, into which an initial US$700 million was siphoned out of the joint venture, was in the name of PetroSaudi.

As revealed unequivocally by the Bank Negara letter, this claim was false.  Straight after the signing of the deal Buckland gave up his legal job and moved to PetroSaudi himself to become a director.  And he continued to use his former law firm to represent the company in future swindles, such as the US$500 million later transferred in September 2010 in order to buy out UBG bank, using 1MDB money.

Sarawak Report says that it is time that international law enforcers extend their enquiries beyond the banks and major players in these deals to characters such as the top brass at PetroSaudi, who have made themselves very rich indeed out of knowingly assisting in the theft of Malaysia’s money.

It was they also who denounced the whistleblower Xavier Justo and orchestrated his arrest in Thailand for revealing their own criminal activities and those of their collaborators Jho Low and Prime Minister Najib Razak

Pembangkang Kuat Dengan Kehadiran Dr Mahathir Dan Husam Dan Berapa Lagi Pemimpin

BLOK PEMBANGKANG KUAT DENGAN KEHADIRAN DR MAHATHIR - HUSAM
Posted: 18 May 2016 09:02 PM PDT

Semakin nyata bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohmad dilihat sebagai suatu force penting untuk memperkuat dan memperkukuhkan  blok pembangkang memenangi pilihan raya akan datang.

Ia juga dilihat senjata penting bagi pembangkang untuk memaksa Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak berundur atau Barisan Nasional (BN) ditumpaskan  dalam pilihan raya akan datang.

Surat dari penjara oleh Datuk Seri Anwar kelmarin yang meminta penyokong PKR berhati-hati dengan Dr Mahathir, dilihat bukan alasan untuk Najib tidak perlu berundur.

Bagi Bekas naib presiden PAS, Datuk Husam Musa, surat itu tidak boleh gunakan kononnya Anwar tidak minat Najib berhenti.

“Najib kena berhenti (jadi PM),” tegas Husam.

"Anwar menghargai 1.27 juta penandatangan Deklarasi Rakyat, tak mungkin Anwar lupakan tandatangan 1.27 juta rakyat Malaysia," tegas Husam.

Dalam surat lapan halaman yang tersebar Isnin lalu, Anwar mengejutkan banyak pihak dengan kritikan terbuka terhadap Dr Mahathir dan Deklarasi Rakyat selain menyentuh pelbagai isu, daripada masalah keteguhan perjuangan dalam PKR kepada kelicikan politik Malaysia.

Selain Mahathir, Tun Daim Zainuddin yang dilihat 'orang kanan' perdana menteri keempat itu serta Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah tidak terlepas daripada kritikan Anwar.

Antara inti pati amanat Anwar itu ialah terdapat pemimpin PKR bersekongkol dengan Mahathir dan Daim melalui Deklarasi Rakyat sehingga menggugat perjuangan parti itu.

Di sebalik surat Anwar, Husam melihat faktor Dr Mahathir sangat penting untuk pembangkang.

Kelmarin, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah mengakui Dr Mahathir tetap di hati rakyat di akar umbi dan akan menjadi cabaran kepada UMNO dan BN.

Kini terpulang kepada BN untuk menyekat pengaruh Dr Mahathir dan force yang diakibatkan oleh beliau dalam menyatukan pembangkang.

Panglima dan jentera perang BN perlu menggunakan strategi yang berkesan ‘memerangi kemaraan pengaruh Dr Mahathir’ dengan sokongan pemimpin pembangkang untuk mengalahkan BN.

Malah, secara terbuka semalam, Husam berharap Dr Mahathir akan kekal bersama blok pembangkang bagi menunaikan hasrat mereka untuk menawan Putrajaya.

"Saya berharap Tun Mahathir akan kekal bersama pembangkang dan dia akan jadi jurulatih supaya pembangkang boleh jadi kerajaan.

"Saya menganggap selagi Mahathir duduk dengan kita (bersama pembangkang), pembangkang akan jadi lebih kuat," katanya malam semalam.

Husam berkata demikian selepas majlis Dialog bersama Husam di Dewan Himpunan Kuala Lumpur dan Selangor (KLSCH) malam tadi.

Apakah dengan mengatakan sedemikian Husam percaya bahawa Dr Mahathir akan tetap bersama pembangkang dan tidak akan membuat U-Turn pada Pilihan Raya Umum akan datang?

Bagaimana kalau tiba-tiba kerana masih sayangkan UMNO kerana sesuatu sebab, beliau akan kembali semula kepada UMNO seperti yang  berlaku sebelum ini?

Apa jaminan yang Dr Mahathir tidak akan ‘berpaling tadah’ dengan pembangkang?

Apapun kemungkinannya, bagi Husam, dengan adanya bekas Perdana Menteri itu, pembangkang akan menjadi lebih kuat.

Sebelum ini  pemimpin veteran UMNO itu bahawa pakatan pembangkang akan sentiasa kalah jika tidak bersatu.

Dr Mahathir memberi amaran, jika mereka berpecah-belah dan tindakan mereka berpecah sesama sendiri mereka akan kalah pada pilihan raya akan datang. Ini dibuktikan dengan kekalahan pembangkang  di Sarawak.

Keputusan membuktikan  BN memang besar menyebabkan DAP hilang lima kerusi dan PKR pula kekal tiga. PAS dan serpihannya Parti Amanah Negara (AMANAH) pulang tangan kosong.

Mengenai nukilan Anwar yang memberi peringatan kepada pemimpin PKR supaya tidak terbawa-bawa dengan Deklarasi Rakyat, Husam menegaskan,  mana mungkin Anwar lupakan 1.27 juta tandatangan rakyat Malaysia yang mahukan perdana menteri itu berundur.

Bagi  ADUN Salor itu,  dalam surat tersebut Anwar menyatakan deklarasi 'ok' tetapi jangan dilupakan agenda tranformasinya.

"Ini perlu diambil maklum oleh pihak Deklarasi Rakyat. Perkara tersebut juga sebahagiannya telah dimasukkan dalam Deklarasi Rakyat," tegas Husam.

London Mansion Is Under Riza's Name Paid For By 1MDB!

London Mansion Is Under Riza's Name - Paid For By 1MDB!
19 MAY 2016

2 Lygon Place, worth $34 m

A Najib family mansion in London’s Belgravia, originally identified by Sarawak Report, was bought in 2012 under an off-shore BVI company, which has now been shown to be beneficially owned by step-son Riza Aziz, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The paper also claims that investigators have now confirmed that the money used to buy it came from 1MDB!

The revelation comes in the same week that UK Ministers welcomed Najib to London to what Lord Marland, Chair of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council,  described as a “love-in” over Malaysian investments, such as the Battersea Power Station complex.

From junior banker to movie mogul – Riza Aziz

Both Marland and Foreign Minister, Hugo Swire, adopted the line to enquiring journalists that they “could not act judge and jury” over the 1MDB matter, which they described as being an ‘internal Malaysian affair’.

However, UK officials are looped in to the global money laundering investigations into 1MDB, by virtue of British banks, businessmen and off-shore entities involved, and therefore cannot have been unaware that this major investment in UK property has now been identified to have been funded by money stolen from Malaysia’s public development fund.

There are likewise concerns over a Notting Hill mansion belonging to the UK Director of PetroSaudi, Patrick Mahony, which can also be shown to have been purchased directly from money which the Malaysian Central Bank, 1MDB Board of Directors, Malaysian Public Accounts Committee and Malaysian Auditor General have all condemned for being misappropriated from the 1MDB PetroSaudi joint venture in 2009.

London mansion bought by PetroSaudi Director Patrick Mahony days after deal with 1MDB

So, how have ministers justified their tolerance of Mr Najib, whom they know has also implemented illegal crackdowns on his own citizens for trying to raise these issues and establish investigations in Malaysia, when they had evidence that money was being laundered in London?

“I am not in a position to act as judge or jury. I prefer to leave that to
the Malaysian people and courts to determine the outcome of these accusations”.

[says Lord Marland, who has apparently kept himself conveniently unaware that Najib Razak has abused his executive powers in order to prevent the Malaysian people and its courts from taking action].

Hugo Swire – not there to judge Najib?

However, anti-money laundering legislation, to which Britain has signed up, means that once corrupt monies are discovered to be invested in their jurisdiction, the matter is no longer merely a problem for Malaysians, who are being illegally denied their rights to an investigation by a blatant abuse of power by Najib.

It is also a matter of obligation for the British authorities to investigate and pursue!

Riza held business meetings at Lygon Place Mansion

Earlier this week Sarawak Report provided details of how Riza Aziz has furthermore pursued business from his London base, next door to which he has also hired ‘production offices’.

The Malaysian Prime Minister’s step-son has made clear through his managers that he has several millions at his disposal, which he wishes to invest in several global enterprises. Yet, there is little evidence available as to how this young man in his 30s, who worked for two years as a banking assistant in London, could have legitimately acquired this immense fortune, which has also enabled him to launch Red Granite Pictures in the US and to purchase at least two Beverley Hills properties as well as a New York Mansion.

Up to Malaysians not us? Lord Marland

Following extensive reporting by Sarawak Report, all denied by Riza and Red Granite, the WSJ has further identified that US investigators have now directly traced over US150 million invested in Red Granite and roughly the same again in Riza’s properties to money “borrowed” from 1MDB.

British Ministers may choose to say that 1MDB is Malaysia’s businesses and to take no notice of the fact that Najib has illegally abused his executive powers to close down judicial, parliamentary and his own party’s investigations against him.

They may further choose to ignore that he has cracked down on the public’s right not only of protest but even of freedom of speech on the matter, even via twitter, facebook and internet debate.

However, they cannot legally ignore money laundering in Britain’s capital city, once it has been drawn to their attention.

Riza Linked Company Seeks To Invest Millions In Multiple Ventures, Globally - EXCLUSIVE

Riza Linked Company Seeks To Invest Millions In Multiple Ventures, Globally - EXCLUSIVE
16 MAY 2016

Investigators into the missing billions from 1MDB, which have now been connected to the US-based step-son of the Malaysian Prime Minister, Riza Aziz (aged 35), might do well to examine the activities of a company opened by his wealth management advisor, which boasts access to large amounts of capital ready for immediate investment.

Panavista LLC, a New York registered company, which has close links with Aziz, has been approaching businesses with offers to invest millions of dollars. The company is actively seeking to invest in multiple ventures on a global basis, these businesses have been told.

Panavista’s London office space at 32 Ebury Street adjacent to the Lygon Place home of Najib Razak (left) where Riza stays in town

The company, which was established just last year, is run by LA tax lawyer, Debra Whelan Johnson, who describes herself as “an asset manager for high net worth entertainment professionals”, together with two prominent New York legal partners Stan Pottinger and David Boies of Boies, Schiller & Flexner L.L.P.

However, the company appears to be closely linked to Aziz himself, who has been described as the investor behind it to potential business partners.

Whelan Johnson is also the manager of Riza’s private and business affairs through another of her companies called Metropolis IX.  In one case, a British national, Craig Vincent Pallister, was hired by Metropolis IX to manage Aziz’s personal security, at the same time as he was looking for new investment opportunities and contacting businesses on behalf of Panavista.

One person who has engaged with Panavista told Sarawak Report, “I was reliably told that their source of wealth is linked to Riza Aziz and I am not aware they have any other major investors at this time”.

Debra Whelan Johnson

Riza’s wealth manager, Debra Whelan Johnson is a partner in Panavista

The key player at Panavista is the party loving US tax lawyer Debra Whelan Johnson, who has been tied to Riza Aziz since she handled his account as his ‘wealth manager’ at the LA firm NKSFB.

When Sarawak Report first questioned the origins of that wealth, which included two expensive properties in Beverley Hills and a multi-million dollar flat in New York, plus major investments in top films such as Wolf of Wall Street, it was Debra’s then husband, Channing Johnson, who threatened to sue on Riza’s behalf.

That case collapsed and Debra left her job at NKSFB. However, Hollywood insiders have informed Sarawak Report that she has remained extremely close to her youthful client and that he was her core business when she then set up her own operation, Metropolis IX LLC.

Johnson frequently travels with Aziz, attending parties and events on the Hollywood celebrity circuit.  She is Riza’s ‘gate-keeper’, insiders have explained, and the life-style enjoyed by this set is extremely lavish:

“There is no expense spared when it comes to chauffered limos, the best restaurants, parties at the top clubs, tickets costing thousands of dollars for celebrity events and of course, designer luxuries and business class travel” one associate has told SR.

Debra and her entourage also have full access to Riza’s properties, which include the 7 story luxury mansion bought by his parents (Rosmah and Najib) next to Buckingham Palace in London Victoria and two Hollywood mansions in Beverley Hills.

“He lives in one [Beverley Hills] mansion, which he bought for US$17 million and then tore down and re-built for another $35 million. And there is a second mansion, which he seems to use for guests and business associates” explains one informed source.

It now appears that it is Whelan Johnson, who has been entrusted with managing all aspects of Riza’s life, including investments, property developments and security, although business contacts have complained to Sarawak Report of an air of unprofessionalism and slack practice.

Craig Pallister

Craig Pallister – the untrained British scrap merchant was issued a gun to guard guests at Riza Aziz’s Hollywood mansions

In one case, a British scrap dealer with entrepreneurial ambitions, named Craig Pallister, who met with Whelan Johnson at the Groucho Club in London last December, was swiftly absorbed into the inner circle of the company.

Pallister introduced multiple contacts to Panavista with a view to investment opportunities, including UK businessman Nick Bradley, Sarawak Report has learnt.

Pallister initially explained to these contacts that Panavista was a vehicle for the producer of the Wolf of Wall Street, namely Riza Aziz.

Documents obtained by Sarawak Report show that Pallister signed a non-disclosure agreement with Whelan’s other company Metropolis IX, as part of an employment agreement, which particularly referred to discussion of the affairs of Riza Aziz.

Section 1(c) of the agreement was entitled ‘Confidential Information of Riza Aziz’ – no other individual was referred to in the document:

Pallister was employed by Debra Whelan Johnson a month after meeting her at the Groucho Club Bar in London

Non-disclosure agreement with Debra Whelan Johnson’s company focused on the privacy of Riza Aziz and no other client

Pallister was also hired by Metropolis IX to manage one of Aziz’s security contracts worth over $600,000 assigned to LA based, Aegis Security and Investigations Inc. He boasted that the job would involve him spending 10 days a month in LA, where he enjoyed luxury living, thanks to Debra Johnson’s expense account.

Pallister was also engaged as an armed security guard at VIP events hosted by Riza Aziz, after claiming he had close protection expertise. However, associates say he had no experience, recent training or licence to do so.

Debra Johnson’s company appears to have one major client – she acts as the gate-keeper and manager for Riza Aziz’s personal life and financial investments say insiders

Panavista hosted potential investment partners at Najib mansion

Stan Pottinger, US lawyer and best-selling author, flew in to London to attend the investment meeting

Debra Johnson’s unusual business tactics at Panavista have been highlighted by a series of business negotiations, where details have been passed to Sarawak Report.

UK businessman Nick Bradley was encouraged to meet with the company in London in January, after Pallister had told several contacts that he had huge investment opportunities available – backed by the producer of The Wolf of Wall Street.

Bradley has a valuable new technology and and was informed that Panavista were keen to throw millions at his project. Sarawak Report has learned this was only one of a number of global investments that Panavista are planning.

Boies Schiller & Flexner LLP – is counsel to Panavista and shares an office with Pottinger in New York

Initially, Bradley was courted by Panavista at an expensive Berkely Square restaurant in Mayfair where Debra Johnson, Stan Pottinger and Craig Pallister discussed his new project.

The next morning they invited Bradley to a meeting at a prestigious address near Buckingham Palace, which they explained was owned by the investor Riza Aziz, who would attend the discussion.

Sarawak Report has established that this address was none other than the home purchased by Najib Razak and Riza’s mother, Rosmah Mansor, at Lygon Place, Belgravia.

“In the end Riza did not make the meeting” says Bradley and the location was moved at the last minute to what was described as a film production office, which is adjacent to Lygon Place in a serviced office centre at 32 Ebury Street.

At this meeting Johnson, Pottinger, Pallister and a lawyer Matthew Schwarz, who works for the law firm Boies Schiller & Flexner (BSF) in New York, were present. The Chairman of BSF is David Boies, considered one of America’s most prominent lawyers and cited by Panavista as the company’s named legal counsel.

Panavista’s promotional document places itself as an “intermediary” for investors..

“How big a cheque do I have to write?”

Despite the apparent access to investment cash, Bradley’s company and his corporate advisors say that over the following weeks they became concerned over the alleged unprofessionalism of Whelan Johnson and Pallister.

Frequently mentioned by Panavista – Riza Aziz was expected to attend meetings

They say they also harboured concerns about the source of the investment capital. In one meeting with Pallister and Whelan Johnson, delegates for Bradley said they were surprised to be repeatedly asked by Pallister “How big a cheque do I have to write to do the deal right now?”.

Bradley’s representatives reminded Pallister that he “was not in a position to write multi-million pound cheques.”  So, whose money, they wanted to know was Panavista so eager to invest?

Bradley’s advisors have confirmed they asked Panavista several times to confirm exactly where their money originated from and, in the absence of a definitive reply, say they were only able to conclude that Pallister’s original assertions were correct and the source was indeed the Malaysian, Riza Aziz.

Subsequently Bradley received two more offers of investment from Panavista directly from Stan Pottinger and David Boies, which he described to Sarawak Report as ‘genuine but lacking in clarity’ and ‘misaligned with the global ambitions of his company’.

Ultimately Bradley and his team withdrew from the negotiations with Panavista and he walked away from a £6.6M proposition.

No Illegitimate funding

Sarawak Report has enquired from Panavista whether their investors include Riza Aziz, whose company Red Granite Pictures issued a statement today again denying it has received any money from 1MDB.

“Red Granite has received hundreds of millions of dollars in financing over the last six years from a variety of sources, including top-tier US commercial and investment banks,” according to the statement made to Bloomberg

In which case, Sarawak Report would like to know if this is also the source of the money now being re-invested through Panavista in global ventures controlled by Debra Whelan Johnson and her partners?

Cameron Welcomes 'Fantastically Corrupt' Najib Razak To London Trade Talks

Cameron Welcomes 'Fantastically Corrupt' Najib Razak To London Trade Talks
15 MAY 2016

An unfortunate pattern has emerged.

Last year, the UK’s Prime Minister, David Cameron, attended an anti-corruption conference in Singapore and then went straight on to KL, the day after Najib had sacked several colleagues and closed down one of the world’s biggest anti-money laundering investigations – against himself.

Cameron announces his laudable decision to force declarations of beneficial ownership in the UK

This year, Cameron hosted the conference in London, whilst lamenting to the Queen that some of its delegates were themselves “fantastically corrupt”.  And now, two days later, with that same pesky investigation still nipping at his ankles, Najib has flown into town to discuss trade deals with Tory ministers.

After landing in his Presidential-style personal jet (paid for by Malaysians) in the private Farnborough Airport early Sunday, Najib is due to travel in his usual string of limousines to his favourite hotel group’s iconic flagship – the Shangri La, in London’s Shard.

Grand views…

Next, according to his itinerary, he (and more importantly his profligate wife) will spend ‘down time’ in London’s West End shopping Mecca.

The couple will not be staying at any of their known London residences, whose beneficial ownership will now have to be openly declared, according to Cameron’s own key anti-corruption initiative announced at the conference last week.

This will catch out several super-wealthy, politically connected Malaysians and it is feared that Central London’s property prices are likely to take a serious knock.

Marlborough House over looks St James and Buckingham Palace

Another laudable development is a further squeeze on Britain’s lawless off-shore tax havens, ‘Treasure Islands’ like the BVI, which villains such as Jho Low and his backers have used to hide the ownership of companies, which open and close like clams as they pass great quantities of stolen cash.

So far, these changes are not enough and armies of tax advisors, wealth management consultants, bankers, lawyers, image creators and accountants will be lining up with new alternatives for the politically corrupt from the emerging economies and western business sharks.  Much more needs done, more quickly.

Meanwhile, on Monday morning Najib will be off to none other than Marlborough House on the Mall, over looking Buckingham Palace, to engage in trade talks with his British hosts (agenda below). Arms purchases are definitely Najib’s favourite area in this respect, because such immense sums are of course involved, with so much potential for collateral payments.

The British are likewise most enthusiastic to make such sales, as will be Russia, which happens to be Najib’s next important stop.

Marlborough House was in fact the very venue for last week’s anti-corruption conference, (as Sarawak Report’s Editor had noted, whilst walking the dog in St James’ Park).

How coincidental is that?

Here is Najib’s formal agenda:

Day one – morning

Day one – afternoon

Day Two

After which, the Prime Ministerial couple depart to the world’s most notoriously wasteful Sochi holiday resort in Russia to continue their trade talks on the Black Sea with the agents of President Putin.

Cameron Welcomes 'Fantastically Corrupt' Najib Razak To London Trade Talks

Cameron Welcomes 'Fantastically Corrupt' Najib Razak To London Trade Talks
15 MAY 2016

An unfortunate pattern has emerged.

Last year, the UK’s Prime Minister, David Cameron, attended an anti-corruption conference in Singapore and then went straight on to KL, the day after Najib had sacked several colleagues and closed down one of the world’s biggest anti-money laundering investigations – against himself.

Cameron announces his laudable decision to force declarations of beneficial ownership in the UK

This year, Cameron hosted the conference in London, whilst lamenting to the Queen that some of its delegates were themselves “fantastically corrupt”.  And now, two days later, with that same pesky investigation still nipping at his ankles, Najib has flown into town to discuss trade deals with Tory ministers.

After landing in his Presidential-style personal jet (paid for by Malaysians) in the private Farnborough Airport early Sunday, Najib is due to travel in his usual string of limousines to his favourite hotel group’s iconic flagship – the Shangri La, in London’s Shard.

Grand views…

Next, according to his itinerary, he (and more importantly his profligate wife) will spend ‘down time’ in London’s West End shopping Mecca.

The couple will not be staying at any of their known London residences, whose beneficial ownership will now have to be openly declared, according to Cameron’s own key anti-corruption initiative announced at the conference last week.

This will catch out several super-wealthy, politically connected Malaysians and it is feared that Central London’s property prices are likely to take a serious knock.

Marlborough House over looks St James and Buckingham Palace

Another laudable development is a further squeeze on Britain’s lawless off-shore tax havens, ‘Treasure Islands’ like the BVI, which villains such as Jho Low and his backers have used to hide the ownership of companies, which open and close like clams as they pass great quantities of stolen cash.

So far, these changes are not enough and armies of tax advisors, wealth management consultants, bankers, lawyers, image creators and accountants will be lining up with new alternatives for the politically corrupt from the emerging economies and western business sharks.  Much more needs done, more quickly.

Meanwhile, on Monday morning Najib will be off to none other than Marlborough House on the Mall, over looking Buckingham Palace, to engage in trade talks with his British hosts (agenda below). Arms purchases are definitely Najib’s favourite area in this respect, because such immense sums are of course involved, with so much potential for collateral payments.

The British are likewise most enthusiastic to make such sales, as will be Russia, which happens to be Najib’s next important stop.

Complicity At SRC Leaves Zero Wriggle Room For Najib

Complicity At SRC Leaves Zero Wriggle Room For Najib
14 MAY 2016

Late last year, observers remind, the Ministry of Finance owned SRC International issued a press release condemning articles by this news site.

SRC accused Sarawak Report of “fabricating” chart flows showing how the company’s sent money into Najib’s accounts and also for “fabricating” the charge sheet drawn up by the previous Attorney General against the Prime Minister in relation to these transactions.

The press release cited no named official, because by then the CEO, Nik Faisal Arif Kamil, had fled to Jakarta and there has been no replacement.

So, one can only assume that it was authorised by Nik’s boss, the Finance Minister/PM Najib Razak himself, who had brought the company under his ministry’s direct control after months of criticism over its opaque handling of public money while it had been a subsidiary of 1MDB.

This is what SRC’s anonymous press release said:

PRESS STATEMENT ISSUED BY SRC INTERNATIONAL SDN BHD

October 21, 2015

    We refer to previous reports carried by MalaysiaKini, apparently working hand-in-hand with a foreign controlled blog Sarawak Report– who  published an alleged charge sheet against the Prime Minister and a diagram of alleged fund flows into his accounts – saying that a RM4 billion loan obtained by SRC International from KWAP had been misappropriated.
    We strongly reject these allegations. Having conducted an internal investigation, we believe these claims were based on documents that were fabricated, therefore representing a deliberate attempt to mislead the public.
    In reality, all the RM4 billion borrowed from KWAP is accounted for on our balance sheet, in accordance with standard accounting and governance practices. None of it was misappropriated as claimed by those with malicious intent.
    With respect to SRC’s CSR activities, any expenditure by the company on social programmes is derived from cash income generated from our investments.
    Over the years, this has amounted to approximately RM500 million excluding other non-cash items, providing us with strong income to use for such purposes.
    In the interests of full disclosure, we ask the good office of the Attorney General to conduct a full investigation into these claims and the alleged charge sheet published by Sarawak Reportand fund flows diagram published by MalaysiaKini. We ask that the parties responsible for these fabrications be identified, given that their authenticity was denied by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission on 3 August 2015.
    These false allegations represented a serious attack on SRC, which resulted in negative financial and reputational repercussions for our business, as well as the Government in an attempt to politically undermine it.
    We call on those quarters who are engaged in efforts to overthrow the Government to desist from involving SRC in their political campaign and to avoid making false and unsubstantiated allegations against us.
SRC International lied

Nik Faisal Arif Kamil, key player who ran away

A few months on these claims by SRC have been rendered totally and utterly discredited and untrue.

It was the very Attorney General, whom SRC called upon to investigate Sarawak Report’s alleged forgery and fabrication, who first let the cat out of the bag in January.

In the process of “clearing” Najib, which he had been hired to do by Najib, he waved the MACC report which showed the very cash flows that SRC had complained we fabricated!

What’s more he waved another paper showing that there were even more cash flows – another RM33 million on top of the earlier RM42 million, passing from SRC International to Najib’s private accounts.

At this conference Apandi explained on Najib’s behalf that the Prime Minister had not realised the money came from SRC, thinking that it had come from the “donation” of US$681 million from a ‘Saudi Royal’ instead. The AG accepted this excuse and didn’t ask for the money back… and neither did SRC:

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had no knowledge, nor was he informed, that funds from SRC International Sdn Bhd were transferred into his personal bank accounts, Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali said.

He said evidence showed that at all material times, the prime minister was of the belief that the “payments made by him” were made from the Saudi royal family’s RM2.6 billion political donation.

“There is no evidence to show the PM gave any approval for the transfer of monies from the account of SRC International into his personal accounts,” Apandi told a press conference [Malaysiakini 26th January]

The MACC immediately contested the AG’s attempt to close the case, insisting that there were grounds for prosecution against Najib.  This further substantiated the information published by Sarawak Report, which that the previous AG had indeed produced a charge sheet against the Prime Minister before he was unceremoniously sacked.

So, case proven for Sarawak Report.

“All the RM4 billion borrowed from KWAP is accounted for”

Move on several weeks and the lies in that anonymous SRC press release, authorised by Najib, have been further exposed by the highly credible authority of the Singapore prosecution service.

SRC claimed (above) that it had done a total audit of every cent expended from the RM4 billion it had borrowed from KWAP and proved that NONE of it had been misappropriated:

” In reality, all the RM4 billion borrowed from KWAP is accounted for on our balance sheet, in accordance with standard accounting and governance practices. None of it was misappropriated as claimed by those with malicious intent.”

And yet, this week we have seen laid bare in a Singapore court the evidence that US$12 million was squirrelled out of SRC International’s BSI Bank account into a private company opened by a Jho Low associate named Eric Tan, by means of forgery and deception on the part of an arrested individual named Yeo Jaiwei.

Jho Low – plugging Riza’s film with best pal Leo

Didn’t SRC’s auditors pick that one up in the course of their thorough investigations?

And what about Sarawak Report’s other queries, as to why the Prime Minister cum Finance Minister had made a statement to Parliament, claiming that the majority of the RM4 billion borrowed by SRC had been invested in a Mongolian coal mining venture, when company records prove that no more than around RM180 million could have been injected by SRC?

Why has there been no answer to our point that the vast majority of SRC’s money therefore remains unaccounted for and presumably invested in similar dodgy ventures initiated by companies controlled by Jho Low?

One prime target for investigation, Sarawak Report suggests, is the mysterious Jho Low company of a strangely similar name, SRG (Strategic Resources Global), which together with Aabar bought out the US oil company Coastal Energy.

Did any of SRC (Strategic Resources Company)’s cash go missing there?

Tengku Razaleigh piles on the pressure

Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah

With such developments it is becoming clear that no matter how furiously the PM lies about the money, which he has now admitted to having used to fund his credit cards and to pay political hangers-on, the scandal cannot be covered up.

Najib’s cyber-troopers have fallen back on their “broken record” argument, complaining that the critics of 1MDB are “harping on” about the same old boring billions, which have been stolen.

Yet, even as Malaysians are being urged to ‘forget about’ this ‘old chestnut’ of a story by Najib’s writers, a dramatic press release by none other than UMNO’s key senior figure Tengku Razaleigh  Hamzah shows how the issue cannot disappear.

Razaleigh was at one point considered a possible leader of an UMNO split over 1MDB, but Najib moved to bring him close. Today he has re-opened the divide by issuing a deadly demand that the Auditor General’s report into 1MDB be de-classified, in the face of Najib’s extraordinary move to make it an Official Secret.

This was the very demand cited by Sarawak Report earlier this week, after PAC member Tony Pua revealed that the Auditor General had discovered no less than US$7 billion have gone missing from 1MDB.

As Tengku Razaleigh made clear, just as the PM’s plane was lifting off to start an official foreign visit to the UK and Russia, the suppression of this investigation into a public company, which was in response to major concerns, is wholly unjustifiable:

“I am again making a call that the Auditor-General’s Report, which has been classified as “Official Secret” should be declassified as a matter of urgency for the reasons I have given above and because the Members of the Dewan Rakyat have a constitutional right to the Auditor-General’s Report before Parliament sits on 16th May, 2016. The issues are of such public importance that there cannot be any excuse for making the Auditor-General’s Report an official secret.”  [Press Statement Tengku Razaleigh – see below]

The same point has, of course, been made by UMNO’s other rebel of enormous stature, the former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir.

PAC Chair Datuk Hasan Arifin

Tengku Razaleigh has added that the revelation of foul play over the publication of the Parliamentary Accounts Committee report also into 1MDB also makes the de-classification necessary and urgent. Najib’s hand-picked new Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee was found to have secretly and illegally removed certain damning sentences from that report, after it had been unanimously voted through an just before it was printed.

Those sentences referred to the discovery that US$7oo million plus US$330 million were directly siphoned from the initial 1MDB PetroSaudi joint venture deal to a company (Good Star Limited) that was not owned by either party to the joint venture, according to Bank Negara, said the PAC.

So, yet another deceit is out and it seems numbers are growing amongst the UMNO warlords, who are deciding enough is enough.

Sarawak Report is sorry to sound so often like a broken record, so we will offer Prime Minister Najib and his wife Rosmah our wishes for a pleasant time abroad, as they leave their disenchanted colleagues in charge behind.

See the press release:

TENGKU RAZALEIGH HAMZAH

MISREPRESENTATION OF THE PUBLIC ACCOUNTS COMMITTEE

It has been widely reported that there had been unlawful deletions to the Public Accounts Committee’s (PAC) Report that is to be tabled in Parliament. The deletions are about a subject matter of importance and controversy in respect of the unlawful movements of money that 1MDB had purportedly borrowed from international creditors.

2 My concern is for the protection of the integrity and standing of the Dewan Rakyat in the eyes of the public as an institution where Members of the Dewan Rakyat act responsibly and honestly without misleading the public.

3. In view of the deletions, I am concerned whether the Report that is going to be presented to the Dewan Rakyat is a report that can stand up to the public concerns in respect of the purported loans that 1MDB claims to have made on behalf of the nation. The deletions will be considered not only as unlawful but also a serious breach of the Houses of Parliament (Privileges and Powers) 1952, Section 9(i), (j) and (n)(iii).

4. The Houses of Parliament (Privileges and Powers) Act 1952 is intended to protect the integrity and reputation of the Dewan Rakyat so that the people of Malaysia will have confidence in the Dewan Rakyat as a constitutional institution to protect their interests. A breach of the Sections that I have referred to which deals with the tampering, misrepresentation and falsification of the documents presented to the Dewan Rakyat is precisely the kind of actions which fall within the offences under the Act. What it means is whatever deletions that have been made can cause apprehension among members of the public that the Report cannot, in the circumstances, reflect the entire truth of the facts surronding the 1MDB issue.

5. Therefore, I am again making a call that the Auditor-General’s Report, which has been classified as “Official Secret” should be declassified as a matter of urgency for the reasons I have given above and because the Members of the Dewan Rakyat have a constitutional right to the Auditor-General’s Report before Parliament sits on 16th May, 2016. The issues are of such public importance that there cannot be any excuse for making the Auditor-General’s Report an official secret. I would also like to reiterate the decision by the Prime Minister Y.A.B. Dato’ Sri Najib that the 1MDB issue be investigated by the Auditor-General and its result presented as a report for the consideration of the Dewan Rakyat. In making that decision, the Prime Minister gave the impression that there is nothing to hide.

Siasatan S'pura: 'Nik Faisal lulus pindah RM48j dari SRC ke sekutu Jho Low'

ura: 'Nik Faisal lulus pindah RM48j dari SRC ke sekutu Jho Low'
14 Mei 2016, pagi 9:19
Dikemaskini 14 Mei 2016, pagi 10:04

Siasatan pihak berkuasa Singapura didakwa mendapati bahawa Pengarah Urusan SRC International, Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil, meluluskan pemindahan AS$11.95 (RM48 juta) dana syarikat itu kepada sekutu Jho Low - Tan Kim Loong.

Tan, menurut laporan Wall Street Journal (WSJ), adalah benefisiari asal syarikat yang berpangkalan di British Virgin Islands, Tanore Finance, yang telah menghantar AS$681 juta ke akaun bank peribadi Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Tanore Finance dilaporkan menerima dana, melalui perantara, dari syarikat yang berpangkalan di British Virgin Islands, Aabar Investments PJS Limited di mana AS$3.5 bilion dana 1MDB didakwa dilencongkan.

Business Times Singapura melaporkan bahawa penemuan pihak Singapura itu terkandung dalam dokumen yang dikemukakan kepada mahkamah Singapura pada hari Khamis sebagai sebahagian daripada pertuduhan ketujuh terhadap bekas pegawai bank BSI, Yeo Jiawei.

Pertuduhan terbaru terhadap Yeo itu adalah kerana mempermudahkan, melalui cara penipuan, pemindahan AS$11.95 juta dari SRC International kepada Affinity Equiti International Partners Ltd, sebuah syarikat yang dimiliki Tan.

"Pemindahan dana kepada Affinity Equiti International Partners Ltd dilakukan melalui Pacific Harbour Global Growth Fund AA4 - dana yang SRC International Malaysia langgani.

"(Ia) diselia oleh Pengarah Eksekutif Kewangan 1MDB Terence Geh dan diberi kuasa oleh Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil, pengarah urusan SRC International Sdn Bhd dan bekas ketua pegawai pelaburan 1MDB, dokumen-dokumen yang dikemukakan oleh pendakwa raya Singapura mendedahkan," kata laporan itu.

SRC International Malaysia, yang didaftarkan di British Virgin Islands, dimiliki sepenuhnya oleh SRC International Sdn Bhd, yang seterusnya dimiliki oleh Kementerian Kewangan Malaysia.

Ia adalah bekas anak syarikat 1MDB, sebelum diletakkan secara langsung di bawah Kementerian Kewangan pada tahun 2012.

Surat ditandatangani Nik Faisal

Business Times juga melaporkan bahawa antara dokumen yang dikemukakan kepada mahkamah termasuk surat yang ditandatangani Nik Faisal bagi pihak SRC International Malaysia mengakui bahawa Pacific Harbor Global Growth Fund telah menyalurkan AS$11.95 juta kepada Affinity Equiti.

Sebelum ini, selain SRC sebagai bekas anak syarikat 1MDB, ia tidak dikaitkan secara langsung dengan jaringan transaksi multi-bilion dolar 1MDB.

Transaksi kontroversi SRC International sebelum ini dilihat sebagai bebas daripada 1MDB, antaranya pemindahan RM42 juta dan RM27 juta, melalui perantara, ke dalam akaun bank peribadi Najib.

Peguam Negara Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali telah membersihkan Najib daripada transaksi tersebut dengan alasan bahawa perdana menteri tidak tahu mengenainya.

Walaupun transaksi multi-bilion 1MDB kini menjadi subjek siasatan antarabangsa termasuk di Singapura, Switzerland, Luxembourg, United Arab Emirates dan Amerika Syarikat, namun sedikit yang diketahui tentang apa yang berlaku kepada RM4 bilion dari SRC International.

SRC International telah mendapat pinjaman RM4 bilion daripada Kumpulan Wang Persaraan Diperbadankan (KWAP) - dana pencen untuk kakitangan kerajaan - yang dikatakan untuk pelaburan dalam sektor tenaga di Mongolia.

Nik Faisal dipercayai berada di Indonesia sejak dia meninggalkan Malaysia pada Julai tahun lepas.

Umno Dan PRU 14

UMNO dan PRU 14
1. Ramalan oleh masyarakat sekarang ialah UMNO dan BN akan kalah Pilihanraya Umum ke-14 kerana terlalu banyak tuduhan yang dibuat terhadap Najib yang tidak dijawab olehnya.

2. Ia bermula dengan kes pembunuhan Altantuya, wanita Mongolia yang terlibat dengan skandal pembelian kapal selam.

3. Dua orang anggota polis dituduh menembak mati wanita berkenaan, dibicara, didapati bersalah, kemudian didapati tidak bersalah dan dibebaskan. Kemudian dibicara semula dan dikena hukum bunuh.

4. Seorang daripada mereka berada dalam tahanan tetapi Sirul seorang lagi berada di Australia. Dia membuat kenyataan bahawa dia diarah untuk membunuh.

5. Rakyat tertanya-tanya siapa yang memberi arahan. Sebagai pengawal peribadi Dato Sri Najib, dakwaan Sirul perlu disiasat untuk menentukan siapa yang memberi arahan. Tetapi selain daripada Najib berkata Sirul “merepet”, tidak ada siasatan yang dibuat. Ini adalah nyawa manusia. Amatlah zalim jika Sirul dibunuh kerana menjalankan arahan.

6. Kemudian kes 1MDB. Tuduhan penyelewengan dalam urusan wang berbillion Ringgit oleh Jho Low telah dibuat dengan bukti-bukti yang jelas. Tuduhan ini tidak dijawab selain dari berkata ia adalah pembohongan.

7. Kononnya aset 1MDB berjumlah 52 billion sedangkan hutang hanya 42 billion. Aset tidak jadi keuntungan sebelum dijual (dicairkan). Kenapa untuk membayar faedah sebanyak 2 billion pun terpaksa hutang dari Ananda Krishnan. Kalau 1MDB tidak rugi kenapa terpaksa hutang. Kenapa wang Kerajaan sebanyak 1 billion diberi kepada 1MDB setelah hutang dibayar?

8. Kononnya wang yang disimpan di Cayman Island sudah dibawa balik. Tetapi separuh disimpan dalam bank Swiss (BSI) di Singapura. Di mana pergi separuh lagi dari 6 billion? Kenapa wang ini tidak diguna untuk bayar faedah 2 billion.

9. Kononnya disimpan di Singapura kerana Bank Negara akan menyoal simpanan lebih dari 50 juta. Jikalau duit itu duit kita yang hanya disimpan di Cayman, apa masalahnya menjelaskan kepada Bank Negara punca wang itu. Lagi pun duit ini dimiliki oleh 1MDB yang dikuasai penuh oleh Perdana Menteri yang juga Menteri Kewangan.

10. Soalan-soalan lain berkenaan 1MDB tidak dijawab selain daripada berkata asetnya besar. Soal harga tanah Kerajaan yang dibeli oleh 1MDB tidak dijelas. Sudah tentu jika dibeli dengan harga yang murah dan dinaik nilai berkali ganda, aset ini menjadi besar. Tetapi Kerajaan rugi banyak dengan tanah miliknya dijual dengan harga yang tidak mencermin harga pasaran.

11. US$700 juta dibayar kepada Petro Saudi untuk apa? Sudahkah ditentukan Petro Saudi memiliki konsesi kawasan minyak dan gas di Argentina dan Turkmenistan sebelum membayar wang yang begitu banyak.

12. Jho Low dilapor dalam New York Times, London Times dan Sarawak Report terlibat dalam pengurusan berbillion Ringgit duit 1MDB. Siapa dianya Jho Low yang begitu dipercayai oleh Dato Sri Najib. Pegawai Malaysia yang dilantik mengurus dana 1MDB mengaku mereka diarah oleh Jho Low yang mendakwa ia mendapat kepercayaan penuh dan arahan dari Dato Sri Najib.

13. Gambar-gambar Jho Low dan kelakuannya, umurnya yang amat muda serta cara hidupnya tidak menggambarkan peribadi yang menyakinkan orang ramai. Tetapi dia dilapur membeli rumah di New York dan Hollywood beratus juta Ringgit. Kemudian rumah-rumah ini dijual kepada anak tiri Najib dengan harga ratusan juta Ringgit bagi setiap satu kerana kononnya Jho Low telah jumpa rumah yang lebih indah di Hollywood yang harganya lebih tinggi.

14. Dari mana datangnya duit beratus juta kepada Riza Aziz tidak dapat dijelas. Keluarga Tun Razak termasuk Najib menafikan duit ini adalah dari keluarga. Pelaburan ratusan juta dalam filem “Wolf of Wall Street” oleh Riza datang dari mana?

15. Dan banyaklah lagi tuduhan dan soalan terhadap 1MDB yang ditubuh oleh Dato Sri Najib dan dikuasai sepenuh olehnya sebagai penasihat yang tidak dijelas dan dijawab selain dari menafi dan mendakwa semuanya bohong belaka. Laporan-laporan dalam akhbar di New York dan London amat memalukan negara.

16. Sementara itu, walaupun Kerajaan menghadapi kekurangan wang yang besar dan terpaksa hutang, Dato Sri Najib sebagai Perdana Menteri membeli sebuah lagi pesawat mewah. Umum mengetahui pesawat ACJ319 yang sedia ada diguna bukan sahaja untuk tugas rasmi tetapi sebagai kenderaan peribadi untuk Dato Sri dan Datin Sri.

17. Dalam keadaan ekonomi tidak menentu, dalam keadaan rakyat terpaksa bayar cukai yang lebih tinggi, dalam keadaan nilai Ringgit yang menurun teruk, dalam keadaan kos sara hidup meningkat dan rakyat dilanda banjir dan kehilangan ratusan juta Ringgit, Kerajaan membazirkan wang ratusan juta untuk pesawat mewah walaupun sudah ada pesawat-pesawat milik Kerajaan.

18. Cara pembelian tidak dapat menyembunyi bahawa akhirnya Kerajaan terpaksa menanggung beban pembelian ini. Jika syarikat bukan Kerajaan yang secara rasmi membeli, bayaran melalui lease (sewa) lebih tinggi daripada belian secara langsung kerana terpaksa memberi keuntungan kepada pemilik dan faedah yang dimasukkan.

19. Selain daripada ini dasar-dasar pemerintahan Dato Sri Najib terhad kepada pemberian wang percuma, menimbul kemarahan orang Melayu dengan mengenepikan Dasar Ekonomi Baru kerana ingin mendapat sokongan orang Cina. Namun penolakan BN dalam PRU 13 membuktikan orang Cina tolak pemerintahan Najib.

20. Sesungguhnya rakyat, baik Melayu, Cina, India atau suku kaum Sabah dan Sarawak sudah tidak percaya lagi kepada Dato Sri Najib. Ahli UMNO dan pemimpinnya perlu sedar bahawa UMNO dan dengan itu BN akan kalah jika Dato Sri Najib memimpin UMNO hingga PRU 14. Apabila UMNO kalah, orang Melayu akan kutuk kepimpinan yang menjadikan parti keramat ini begitu lemah sehingga ditolak oleh bangsa Melayu sendiri. Sekali UMNO kalah, ia tidak akan dapat dipulih semula.

21. Ramai juga ahli dan pemimpin UMNO yang setia secara buta tuli kepada pemimpin. Saya juga setia tetapi kesetiaan saya ialah kepada parti dan orang Melayu yang diwakili olehnya. Bukanlah mudah bagi saya menulis blog ini. Tetapi demi bangsa dan Negara saya terpaksa dedah semua ini.

22. Saya belum nyanyok walaupun umur hampir 90 tahun. Sesiapa yang berkata saya nyanyok sebenarnya menipu diri.

23. Melayu hanya akan selamat jika bersikap bangsa lebih utama daripada diri sendiri.

Bagi menampung penggunaan bahan petroleum dalam negara, Petronas terpaksa membeli daripada pembekal luar dengan kadar semasa dan mengakibatkan Rakyat terpaksa menanggung kenaikan harga mengikut pergerakan harga minyak dunia. Sepatutnya, tanpa perjanjian dagangan hadapan, Petronas memperoleh keuntungan yang besar mengikut harga pasaran semasa. Dengan keuntungan ini, Petronas dapat berkongsi harga bahan petroleum yang murah untuk kegunaan Rakyat. Dan manusia yang bertanggungjawab mengatur perjanjian dagangan hadapan yang merugikan Petronas dan Rakyat ini adalah merupakan manusia yang paling lantang bersuara sekarang ini - Mahathir Muhamad. Dan beliau ingin kekal menjadi penasihat Petronas hingga mati bagi melindungi identiti penghisap darah Rakyat melalui keuntungan Petronas.

STATE SECRET! - US$7 BILLION Went From 1MDB, Says Auditor-General

STATE SECRET! - US$7 BILLION Went From 1MDB, Says Auditor-General

Auditor-General Ambrin Buang could not be compromised, so they just made his report "secret"
Auditor-General Ambrin Buang could not be compromised, so they just made his report “secret”

All last year Malaysians were told to ‘be patient’ for the Auditor-General’s report, before they complained about 1MDB. Then ‘all would be revealed’, BN politicians told the public.

But when it was completed Najib instead decided to make the entire report an Official Secret.  Funny that.

Then today the Prime Minister/Finance Minister/Chairman of 1MDB, Najib himself, blamed all the fund’s problems on the failure to float the fund (ie to entice ordinary folk to buy shares in this floundering enterprise).

He blamed that failure on critics like Sarawak Report and all the opposition and press which questioned 1MDB’s gaping debts.

At which point, an exasperated Tony Pua (DAP’s finance spokesman on the Parliamentary Accounts Committee) suggested that maybe the US$7 billion which the Auditor General had identified as gone missing from the fund had more to do with the failed flotation than criticisms from observers?

“The Auditor-General has specifically confirmed that US$7 billion of 1MDB assets and transactions overseas cannot be verified or traced. The figure includes US$1.03 billion paid to Good Star Limited, which Bank Negara has disclosed is owned by an individual unrelated to 1MDB’s joint venture partner, Petrosaudi International Limited.” [Tony Pua, media statement]

Ooops!  Is that what the Auditor-General concluded in his report?  No wonder Najib slapped a secrecy order on it!

It means that every carping little bit of criticism those pesky ‘opposition’ people and journalists have come up with is true and more.  The Swiss Attorney General had said that in his estimation at least US$4 billion had been stolen from the fund, but now Malaysia’s own internal enquiry by its very top finance officer has almost doubled that amount to a shocking US$7 billion – Pouff all that money gone!

Tony Pua, the man Najib suggests is responsible for 1MDB's woes, because ordinary share-buyers were not enticed to throw their money into covering up the losses

PAC members like Pua have of course been allowed to see the report, but sworn to secrecy about its contents, in contravention of their constitutional duty to represent and inform the people’s interests in the oversight of their assets.

The job of Parliamentarians is to hold the Government and Prime Minister accountable, but Najib does not want to be accountable, so he has shut them up.

So, will Najib now jail Mr Pua for letting slip the findings of the Attorney-General himself into 1MDB?

Or will he perhaps decide that it might be better not to draw the world’s attention to that headline figure in such a way, just as he is heading off to impress the blushing British (well they should be blushing) as a London visitor next week?

US$7 billion missing from 1MDB – the official figure from Malaysia’s own AG
Pua and others have little trouble working out how some of that money disappeared. They begin with the US$1.83 billion that went into the original PetroSaudi Joint Venture in 2009, which the Bank of Malaysia just last week again demanded be sent back, because the Bank said, the money in fact was sent to a company “owned by an individual unrelated to 1MDB’s joint venture”

The Official Secret Act is supposed to help prevent crime, not to cover it up
Najib – the Official Secret Act is supposed to help prevent crime, not to cover it up

Next, the missing US$2.4 billion from the so-called power purchase deals, which was sent to the fake Aabar in the BVI.  And then what about the unaccounted US$1.5 billion that disappeared from the March 2013 ‘Strategic Joint Venture’ with Aabar and has never been accounted for?

Funny that it was just two days later that US$681 million appeared in Najib’s accounts in the run up to the general election called days later after that.

There is simply no justification to continue to keep this Auditor’s Report a deadly secret, especially when it was promised as a chance for objective information to be brought for citizens to judge.

Everyone in Malaysia can see it is just a further attempt to justify the unjustifiable and to abuse the power of the government to protect a Prime Minister, who is himself the one who has broken all the rules with criminal behaviour.
