Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has reiterated his call for the people not to speculate on the US Department of Justice’s court filings related to 1MDB last week.
He said the government takes the department’s allegations seriously.
In the meantime, he added, people should not get carried away and allow due process to take its course.
“Sooner or later, we will know the truth. In the meantime, let’s not get too carried away in this matter.
“We should allow the process to proceed using the appropriate legal processes. That is the government’s stance, and we will give full cooperation,” he told some 1,000 would-be pilgrims at the Tunku Mizan Zainal Abidin mosque in Putrajaya this afternoon.
Have some dignity man!
The process of law and order will take its course. Meanwhile, a 136 page indictment by the DOJ has laid out in clearest detail exactly how $681 million was raised by Goldman Sachs for 1MDB at your behest and then two days later landed in your account.
They have the bank transfer details on each and every transaction, because naturally you chose to do the deal in dollars, which they control through their clearing systems.
You have admitted you received the money and have said it was from a Saudi Royal. If you are now going to attempt to say that the US Attorney General and all her team are blatant liars then you are going to have to bring some evidence to compare with theirs….. like a name for that Royal!
So far, the best ‘evidence’ your own hand-picked AG has brought forward has been that the Saudi Royal family “have not commented” on your claims. Wow! now that is cast iron proof that they kindly paid you billions of ringgit if one ever saw it… (sarcasm intended).
In these situations leaders have to resign, in order to let that justice take its course and to be seen to do so independently. You are clinging on to office. Your step-son has run back to Malaysia from his Hollywood and London homes to hide under your skirts.
Your only way out of this is to start murdering and incarcerating your fellow citizens, which you seem willing to try, or to step down and take one of your many jumbo jets to a country willing to give haven to people who pay (remember to take Rosie’s diamonds – she bought them for this reason).
