Xavier Justo’s arrest raises questions on credibility of whistleblower’s publications Dominic Lau : Publishing reports based on compromised documents raises many doubts

Gerakan Vice President, Datuk Dr. Dominic Lau Hoe Chai took note that Xavier Justo a former PetroSaudi International employee has been arrested in Thailand on Monday allegedly for leaking information related to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). Lau understood that Swiss National Xavier Justo was charged with attempted blackmail and extortion against his former employer in relation to proprietary email information belonging to PetroSaudi with initial probes show that some leaked email were tampered with.

The purported arrest of Xavier Justo in Bangkok has prompted Lau to question the source and veracity in a series of publications by Sarawak Report on 1MDB. He was of the opinion that in light of the arrest, the detractors should now offer apology and retract their baseless accusations against the government and Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak.

Lau expressed relief that the perpetrator will now face justice through courts and hoped that it would serve as a stern warning to would-be criminals that data theft is not tolerable. He pointed out initial investigations indicate that the data was stolen from PetroSaudi and subsequently edited before it was published on the internet. Hence, he believed the distorted facts and information as used by whistleblower site must now undergo stringent verification on its credibility. Lau also threw support behind Home Minister’s call that Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) would investigate and act against the Sarawak Report and other publications including the Edge who have relied on these so called to make numerous allegations which could now be outrightly incorrect and defamatory.

“I believe truthful information is essential to serving the public interest. The unlawful manner in acquiring and tampering of information raises serious legal and ethical questions. In this case, the abuse of unverified information by whistleblower site or politicians in throwing accusations is wrong, unfair and goes against public interest,” said Lau.


These falsified and fabricated information are expanded as lies by Sarawak Report and these stories were used over and over again to attack and demonise 1MDB as a mismanaged and corrupted Government strategic invest corporation.

These stories have been amplified and echoed by many parties especially the Opposition and pro-Oppositiom media.

The result is very damning as many Malaysians, especially amongst the educated lot and professionals have been caught in the waves of manipulated demand for the Government to proof otherwise their perception towards 1MDB and Prime Minister Najib’s direct or indirect role and accountability for the well echoed lies.

Hence, there have been talks about Sarawak Report, to court.

The Rakyat Post story:

Government to take action against ‘Sarawak Report’ once probe over, says Najib


KUALA LUMPUR, June 26, 2015:
Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the government would take action against the Sarawak Report once it had obtained the official investigation report from Thai authorities, Bernama reported.
The Prime Minister said this when asked to comment on the UK-based news site which was said to have obtained and reported information gathered from former PetroSaudi International Ltd executive, Xavier Justo, who is under arrest in Thailand.
Two days ago, Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said he was informed that Justo was the individual responsible for distributing inaccurate information to the Sarawak Report blog, triggering numerous unfounded allegations against 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB)
“We must wait for the report and get confirmation from the Thai authorities. I understand the Thai police will inform the Malaysian police soon.

“I do not want to supercede the official report from the Thai authorities. The Inspector-General of Police and the Home Minister are awaiting the reports from Thailand,” the national news agency quoted Najib as saying.
Several local newspapers had on Wednesday reported that Justo was arrested by Thai police on charges of extorting PetroSaudi, quoting Thai media and the company.
PetroSaudi, a multinational oil and gas company based in Saudi Arabia, has been in the limelight in Malaysia following its previous collaboration with 1MDB.
Najib also did not deny the involvement of insiders in relation to the 1MDB controversy, saying: “We do not know. Might be”.


Taking Sarawak Report to court is very important because it not just limited to exonerate 1MDB from all the negative perception and connotation, which is coherent to the perception that Prime Minister Najib is either incompetent, obtuse or allowed abuse of power and corruption.

It is more to that.

It is about unravelling the Neo-Colonialist Jewish Agenda to promote the universally ideas of human and individual rights and liberalism through methods of intellectual discourse of challenging and provoking philosophy, political system, value system, culture, traditions, ideology and faith.

Rogue hedge fund trader George Soros, who was behind several exercise to manipulate and attack currencies such as the Pound Sterling in the early 90s and Thai Bath, Ringgit Malaysia, South Korean Won and Indonesian Ruppiah in the mid 90s, is behind the funding of organisations such as Open Society which fund and support Sarawak Report.

  1. Don’t you think it is to early to demand for apology ? Things might just turn the other way round and may put Najib and the gang in a great shame.

    • Agree.

      The UMNO warlords seem to be acting in concert. SR had been reporting on 1MDB for quite a long time, yet no legal actions were initiated.

      Many countries will be involved in this bizarre saga. The worms are multiplying and wriggling to escape the huge can.

  2. Does anyone know how to falsify 3 million e-mails? Justo must be one hell of a guy!

  3. Who should be demanding apology and who, actually should appropriately apologize .

    Mendengar guroh dilangit ,jangan mencurah air ditempayan.

  4. “We must wait for the report and get confirmation from the Thai authorities,” said DS Najib. Wonder how long from now.

    Meanwhile, what will happen at PAC? Tony Pua yelling all sorts. Supported by bossman Kit Siang. Even suggesting present and past 1MDB CEO might not turn up at the coming hearing.

    • If only 1MDB had been forthcoming and promptly responds to questions asked or remarks made in the past, like this one –

      1MDB says top execs will attend PAC inquiry

      June 28, 2015.1Malaysia Development Berhad’s (1MDB) has reiterated its commitment that its top executives will attend the ongoing Public Accounts Committee (PAC) inquiry into the troubled company and extend their full cooperation

  5. Former Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin said Justo’s arrest appears planned, as if to clear Najib’s name, citing New Striats Times men brought to Bangkok, none from other papers were, thereby NST getting a big scoop on the story etc.

    His jealousy as a former Utusan newspaperman is understandable. But my view is that it doesn’t matter planned or not, so long as it brings answers to the many questions raised from the information Justo leaked out. However doctored, edited and re-casted the information might be.

    As of now, the arrest has not yet answered the questions people have been asking – far from it. It has only thrown doubts on the reliability of the information published by the Sarawak Report. But nobody knows which aspects are questionable, which may still be applicable.

    1MDB/ the Government, must convince the voters that 1MDB has been run in a professional and no hanky panky manner. And done ASAP – as soon as possible.
