Pejuang opposition to DNB for Mahathir's self serving interest

Of all the issues beseiging the country, it is certainly interesting to hear the youth wing of Tun Dr Mahathir's smaller start-up party, Pejuang to take up the issue of Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB). 

In a Malay Mail Online report dated Oct 12, Pejuang Youth’s Abu Hafiz Salleh Hudin and the party’s Treasury and Communications Bureau urged the government to call-off the DNB plan. 

DNB is a company incorporated under the Ministry of Finance and not under the auspices of more regulatory Ministry of Multimedia and Communication, in which MCMC is under. 

Since DNB made known the plan to undertake a Single Whole Network (SWN) approach, telcos have been sulking over it. 

Through Groupe Speciale Mobile Association (GSMA), the voices of telco have become louder and more aggressive in applying pressure and lobbying against DNB rolling out of SWN.

The next big thing 1MDB-related scandal, but where is Mahathir?

There has not been a whisper from the likes of DAP's Lim Kit Siang, Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim or former Bersih chief Datuk S. Ambiga. 

Most of all, where is Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad? He is the man who explained the 1MDB issue to the layman in one word – kleptocrats. 

Joceline Tan

FMT's report dated November 23rd entitled "'Anti-kleptocrats' silence on Zeti's husband 1MDB funds, says Shabery" accurately described the response from the parties raising ruckus against Dato Seri Najib some 6 years ago.

Though not sufficient to respond to the rapid fire of expose and rebutting questions raised to dominate public perception, the then BN government side made an effort to explain.

The rest is history.

Injustice revealed: Najib did not receive a fair trial

The conspirators

Malay Mail Online reported the following in mid-morning today: 

Just days before SRC appeal decision, Najib asks court to take new evidence from MACC chief, investigator

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 2 — Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has asked the Court of Appeal to allow new evidence to be included in his appeal against his conviction, fine and jail sentence for misappropriating RM42 million from former 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) subsidiary SRC International Sdn Bhd.

Najib’s application was filed yesterday, or just seven days before the Court of Appeal was scheduled to decide his appeal on December 8.

Based on court documents sighted by Malay Mail, Najib is applying for the Court of Appeal to allow and to direct for viva voce evidence to be taken from Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief Datuk Seri Azam Baki, or essentially for the anti-corruption chief to be asked to give oral evidence in relation to the SRC case.

Najib is also applying for further oral evidence to be taken from MACC investigating officer Rosli Hussein in the SRC case.

Can Azmin's portal at least get the effin' facts right?

Apparently, Azmin Ali's funded political news portal, MalaysiaNow did not just got their maths all wrong on the alleged commission earned by Dato Vinod Sekhar. 

In their latest expose yesterday, which other media portal assisted to viral, not only they over exaggerated the Hungarian government spending of ventilators, MalaysiaNow's reported contract to Vinod was not consistent with the contract size they reported since June.

Another way to put, their report was unclear and confusing. 

Can Azmin get Latheefa Koya's brother, Abdul Rahman Koya to get MalaysiaNow's facts right before any attempt to slander or make any allegation?

RM2.4 billion commission for ventilator? Azmin's portal must be joking ....

This picture of Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim laughing with his adviser and confidante, Dato Vinod Sekhar should be the appropriate headline for this posting.

Azmin Ali-funded portal, MalaysiaNow claimed to have obtained documents showing Hungarian government agreed to pay Vinod a total of US$559,600,000, which is equivalent to RM2.43 billion for a May 2020 contract. 

If the documents are in their possession, they would have shared it online. That would have been more meat for a character assassination on Vinod or Anwar to devour. 

Why then do MalaysiaNow need to still build-up sentiment and doing a drama when they could simply publish the documents?

Should be arrested: Zeti, Nor Yakcop, Tawfiq

MACC confirmation receiving US$15.4 million (RM65 million) of laundered 1MDB monies from Singapore is currently causing an uproar.

Why is the Malaysian law enforcement not acted on former BNM Governor Tan Sri Dr Zeti Aziz, husband Dato Tawfiq Ayman, and also former Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop?

Together with the statutory declaration signed by Tawfiq to Singapore's CAD, there are more than sufficient grounds for Police's Commercial Crime Investigation Department to arrest Tawfiq and Zeti as suspect for investigation.

Minister in the PM's Department, Dato Wan Junaidi confirmed in Parliament that police have been investigating the couple and only made known by BNM of the monies confiscated by Singapore authority in 2019.

AG Idrus Haron accomplice to cover-up Zeti, Nor Yakcop

Last week in the midst of the Melaka state election, MACC issued a statement to confirm receipt of US$15.4 million (equivalent to RM65 million) from Singapore's Commercial Affairs Department.

It is 1MDB monies squandered by Cutting Edge Industries Pte Limited belonging to Dato Tawfiq Ayman, the husband to former Bank Negara Governor, Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz. 

This confirmed the revelation published in this blog dated March 23rd 2021 of collusion involving Zeti, Ambank, Goldman Sachs and Jho Loh taking a bite of the 1MDB bond's cherry. There is another RM635 million more still due

Through the mechanism of secondary subscriber, Jho Low distributed the deep discount given to various parties including himself and Zeti.      

Fast forward, police should be completing their investigation of Zeti and there are basis for her to be charged. Why is the Attorney General covering up for Zeti? 

For that matter, why is Tan Sri Idrus Haron covering up for another of Mahathir's man, Tan Sri Nor Mohammed Yakcop?
