1MDB-IPIC resolved, Cap Bunga resort to petty misquote

1MDB-IPIC has resolved their impasse.

While the Cap Bunga would like to accuse the diverted money from the original destination as money laundering, they fail to realise an important point of law in the evidence.

It was high officials of IPIC that instructed to change the account to receive the disbursed money. With legal documents in place, it is a sure home run in any court for 1MDB.

Till today, Abu Dhabi has not charge the high officials for any crimes.

With the resolution to the impasse, Chap Bunga supporters have no more issue left to pick on but to recycle same old, same old answered, debunked and resolve issues.

Thus, they are latching on to dear life with only a Malaysiakini misquote of Dato Johari Ghani.

It was a desperate attempt to twist into an issue of earlier reports by Bloomberg and Singapore Straits Times:

The Edge reporting on Straits Times:

Whether Jo Ghani was in the negotiating team or not, whoever was in the negotiating team, 1MDB was a government entity and the negotiators are authorised negotiator for 1MDB.

As Rocky described in his posting, The deal that will force DOJ to review what else it has on 1MDB ...

Bigdog puts it to chagrin of the frusted now issue-less Chap Bunga as A bridge to far.

It is too far for Tun Dr Mahathir's propaganda team to reach with only fake news, false fact and spinning without any depth in information and technical capability.

The official statements from IPIC and 1MDB below:

Settlement of Arbitration Proceedings and Monetisation of Investment Fund Units

We are pleased to confirm that 1MDB and IPIC have agreed on a settlement of the arbitration proceedings at the London Court of International Arbitration.

As per the settlement, 1MDB will, amongst others, make certain payments to IPIC and will assume responsibility for all future interest and principal payments for two bonds issued by 1MDB Group companies due in 2022.

These obligations will be met by 1MDB, primarily via monetisation of 1MDB-owned investment fund units. 1MDB is pleased to confirm that a first tranche monetisation of approximately US$50 million has been received, in cash.

This arbitration settlement and monetisation of investment fund units represents the resolution of a significant challenge, and is a major part of the 1MDB rationalisation plan, which is now at its final stages of conclusion.


For the Mahathir-parroting Chap Bunga fanatics devoid of any ability to technically understand the financial and legal issues objectively (without political and partisan bias couple with simpleton logic), and stay current with the development on the issue (i.e. not recycling stale and out-dated accusations), do read the link in Lim Sian See blog below:
April 2017 IPIC-1MDB Settlement: What you need to know ...
Please read, we beg of you.

Tun Mahathir basis to topple Najib were:
1. To save murderer Sirul but has no new evidence to offer the court; 
2. Government wastage with BR1M as example but other opposition leaders disagree and he U turned; 

3. Government introduction of GST and he promised to abolish it but now Pakatan Harapan leaders now say they won't abolish it
4. The now settled 1MDB with no evidence presented by accuser Mahathir to proof Najib's direct involvement in any wrongdoings and no criminal charges made against anyone in the Singapore courts. 
After Swiss FINMA has stopped, is the Swiss AG or UK investigation via Standard Chartered Bank internal enquiry getting anywhere? 
Swiss AG is elected position. He could be doing his political drama. 
5. Personal issues with Datin Seri Rosmah. Does self appointed Leader of the Council of Elders expect public to get involved in with his petty personal grumblings?
His complains of Rosmah reflect back on himself and his family members.

It looks now that Mahathir's issues are going nowhere. His perjuangan sudah selesai.His allegations proven wrong, concerns no more relevent, and worldview out-dated.

All the 65 years old and above yearning for the past and fanatically idolising him should move on. The majority of Malaysians are 40 and below.

Your time is up. Be reminded with the lesson from Israq Mikraj on the punishment at the hereafter for the sin of lying and slandering.

May you be saved from bring an accomplice!

Its not about the settlement. There shouldn't be any debt in the first place. Najib thought he could get away with it when he started the company without the knowledge of his own cabinet. Alhamdulillah ..Allah is Great. Insyaallah the rakyat will never forget.

Spot on Bro.
I would certainly not be an accomplice to Kleptocracy which gave a bad image to my religion, race and Nation. Even the Royal Institutions would not be spared if they're seen as being an accomplice with Cash is King.

The S'pore Biz Times reported it under the byline "Malaysia, Abu Dhabi settle 1MDB-related row. Settlement is conditional on the Arbitration Tribunal making a consent award by end-May 2017" (

The report said, interalia:

"....questions still remain. For one thing, 1MDB said that the obligations will be met by monetising its investment fund units.

"1MDB provided no details on this, but it is well known that its wholly owned Brazen Sky has "fund units" from its controversial investments in Cayman Islands-registered funds that are kept in an account in BSI Singapore - the private bank that was at the centre of the 1MDB scandal. Last year, Singapore regulators ordered to shut down BSI's operations here for breaching anti-money laundering rules and has so far convicted three former BSI private bankers amid its 1MDB funds probe".

So, if BSI Singapore has been shut down, where are the "fund units" that were "kept in an account in BSI Singapore"?

Have these "fund units" been frozen by the Singapore regulators?

If yes, will the Singapore regulators agree to "unfreeze" them?

Note that BSI Singapore's Swiss head office has up to now refused to disclose just how much funds was held in accounts in BSI Singapore and what happened to the funds when the bank was shut down in Singapore. Were the account holders reimbursed in full?

There's a lot more to this story that has not been disclosed. No matter the "spinning" that is now underway.
