If the documents publicised by Sarawak Report were false or 'doctored', why are these desperadoes ordering the ransacking of public offices and the arrest and interrogation of all the public investigators who have been looking into 1MDB, on the grounds of "criminal leakages"?
Inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar today said the arrest of a deputy public prosecutor and a former advisor from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) as well as an officer of the Attorney-General’s Chambers was in relation to the leaking of information.
“The investigation also focused on the leaking of the government’s official information which have been misused by certain quarters,” he said.
Khalid named the three arrested as former MACC advisor Rashpal Singh Jeswant Singh, MACC deputy public prosecutor Ahmad Sazilee Abdul Khairi and the special task force’s secretariat head of administration and finance Jessica Gurmeet Kaur Nashattar Singh.
He added that Bank Negara officials as well as officers from other commercial banks were also being questioned.
“A few officials from Bank Negara as well as commercial banks were also called to assist police investigation.
“Police will conduct the investigation in a transparent and fair manner, based on provisions of the law,” he said in a statement.
Khalid had earlier told Malaysiakini the trio were being investigated under Section 124 of the Penal Code for activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy.
“The arrests were in relation to a police report made against Sarawak Report editor-in-chief Clare Rewcastle-Brown,” he said.
Once again the forces of Najib are admitting by their words and actions things they had earlier denied were true.
If the charge sheet against Najib was a ‘false’ and ‘forged’ document, as they have angrily claimed, how come people are now being arrested in all directions to find out who might have “criminally leaked” it?
Surely the energetic IGP should rather be dialing up the UK in order to try and lay his hands on Sarawak Report’s admittedly non-existent ‘master forger’ – Lester Melanyi’s ‘James Steward Steven’?
After all, the police report referred to regarding Sarawak Report is surely the one brought by the bankrupt who runs the NGO Pertubuhan Minda & Sosial Prihatin Malaysia, which alleged we were forging documents to topple Najib?
The authorities in this matter do seem to be getting themselves into ever increasing tangles, first attempting to say that our documents are forged, or at least ‘tampered’ then at the same time arresting suspects for leaking them!
Malaysians with IQs above zero should have little difficulty in reaching their own conclusions on the matter.
