Damnation towards self destruction

In the advancement of communication technology and availability of content, the abuse of misleading, distorted, manipulated and pure deceived information is so rampant that it is driving even the learned, educated, more matured and once level headed segments of the society into chronic oblivion.

NST story:

Allegations of charge sheets are false, says AG

31 JULY 2015 @ 3:40 AM KUALA LUMPUR: Attorney General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali has issued the following statement regarding a recent posting by the Sarawak Report blog.

STATEMENT BY ATTORNEY GENERAL MALAYSIA

1. These allegations by foreign national Clare Rewcastle Brown in political blog Sarawak Report are false.

2. T‎he alleged charge sheets are not in and never reached the Attorney General’s Chambers. Furthermore, the format of the sheets is not correct or written by our Chambers. ‎ ‎

3. The Special Task Force investigation has not been completed. So it is not legally possible for charge sheets to be drafted in advance.

4. These alleged charge papers therefore indicate that there is a conspiracy to topple a serving Prime Minister by criminalising him, and that the methods include doctoring and criminal leakage.

5. This plot represents a threat to Malaysia’s democracy and I will direct for all action possible to be taken to investigate. The full force of the law will be applied without exception to any that are found guilty.

**************

It is overwhelmingly mind boggling on why even learned, educated and professional Malaysians which include practicing members of legal and judicial fraternity actually bought into the fake charge sheet presented by Sarawak Report.

Then there are these other very viralised rumours about Bank Negara Malaysian Governor Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz either resigned from the illustrious job which she has been serving the nation or had a heart attack.

NST story:

Zeti in good health, says BNM

30 JULY 2015 @ 5:35 PM KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) Governor, Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz is in good health and did not suffer a heart attack as has been circulated on social media.

“She is fine and well, in the office,” said the central bank’s corporate communication department when contacted by Bernama here, today.

It added that Zeti was working at the office as usual and was not hospitalised as claimed. Based on BNM’s calendar of events on its website, the central bank will announce the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) performance for the second quarter on Aug 13.

The briefing on GDP performance normally will be chaired by BNM Governor. Meanwhile, according to a report by an online news portal, Zeti was said to be absent from work on Monday morning, but nevertheless began her work in the afternoon.

In the last two days, Zeti also attended various in-house meetings at BNM, hence refuting rumours that she is having health problems.–BERNAMA

*******************

It is obliviously damning clear with proofs that time and again, London-based blog-newsportal Sarawak Report have continuously lied and spin stories based on fabricated materials.

Yet, many of the educated, learned and professional Malaysians who have been following the chronic habitual liar had to second guess every time Clare Rewcastle-Brown publish an article which is designed to demonise the Malaysian system.

This is very consistent with the backers of Sarawak Report. The Neo Con Jews such as George Soros, who is funding Open Society Forum and Global Witness, have the agenda to destabilise many of world’s community via intellectual discourse, though provoking ideas etc.

The promote the concept of challenging every idea and anything attached to it; philosophical, political, economic, cultural, administrative, authoritative, norms and values, faith and beliefs, tradition and so forth.

Instead, they wanted all of these to be opened for continuous and escalating debate and thought provoking challenges and the idealism of individualism takes centre stage over community.

It would lead into serious discontent between different segments of the society and the more minority but loud ones would cry out for international help when the authorities go after them, even based on the provisions of the law of the land.

That would be continuously manipulated as ‘The evil draconian impeding on the voice of dissent and democracy’ and with external media propaganda especially the advancement of communication technology and availability of social media, the masses could be riled out to start ground swell movements.

That is how ‘Arab Spring’ started in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya. The use of social media was also how the Neo Con Jews of the the West riled up young Iranians to demonstrate against the election tough-anti-West Ahmedinajad more than five years ago.

The alternative of having free flow of information in the maxim of democracy is to have censorship on which information should be controlled. Even the leader who brought and championed the ‘multimedia super corridor’ eventually agreed for censorship of the internet.

Chedet.cc on 1 August 2014:

CENSORING THE INTERNET

1 Aug 2014 | Uncategorized
1. Not knowing the power of the Internet, I promised that we (speaking as the Prime Minister of Malaysia) would not censor it. But today I have changed my mind.

2. I have done so because the players, including those controlling the servers have been applying their own censorship of what can appear in this alternative media. I myself have suffered from such censorship.

3. When I put on my blog, an article on the Jews, without any explanation, my article was prevented from being linked to Facebook.

4. But that is not all. I first used the internationally available platform to host my blog. When hundreds of thousands visited my blog, suddenly the platform rejected hosting my blog site.

5. I changed the platform but again it was blocked. I have now changed servers and platforms three times. Still there have been attempts to block my blog. Not to mention the numerous spam and virus attacks against my blog.

6. Blocking is of course a form of censorship. The internet is not the free alternative to the state-controlled print and electronic media it is touted to be. It is subject to even more censorship than Governments could exercise. The people who hosts these platforms and servers can censor. And various other means are available to the powerful controllers of the new media for them to censor in the interest of their politics.

7. There is no freedom of the alternative media. Governments and the owners of servers and platforms and assorted others can censor the alternative media. It is actually less free than print and electronic media operating under Government licences.

8. I think it is time we stop talking of the freedom of the press. Let us admit that the press needs to be censored. It needs to be censored because freedom, any kind of freedom will always be open to abuse. The worst abuses are in the field of morality.

9. The internet has played a major role in undermining public morality. Our children are not safe from the kind of filth that the print and electronic media promote. Today any child can access pornography of the worse kind. Children are no longer safe from sexual assault. So are young girls and boys as the internet arouses the kind of base feelings that we curbed before.

10. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender or LGBT is openly touted as a part of human rights. We accept that some people are born with indeterminate sex. They were forced to hide their unusual proclivities. But now that LGBT is accepted, normal people have also taken up the practices of those who were born handicapped. And worse still certain religions have abrogated the injunctions of their religion against abnormal sex so as to be seen to be keeping up with the times.

11. Incest, child sex, sex with animals, sexual parties, sex in public and many other practices which we still feel are wrong will soon be a part of the expression of freedom and equality. All these will promoted on the internet.

12. I don’t care how sacred is freedom but I think the time has come for Governments, at least the Malaysian Government to censor the internet.

*****************

If Malaysians cannot get a grip on themselves especially when they have near absolute ICT democracy where information and content can be viralised to so many through various social media platforms, then they are heading for self destruction.

Naturally they would get ridiculed and frustrated with misleading and lies ever so often. Then the feeling and eventually attitude distrust would be extended and escalated into other systems within Malaysia. This would include administrative, corporate governance, integrity and resource management, law enforcement and judicial and so forth.

This is a systematic avenue of being damned to self destruction.

  1. what if Najib did lie to the public in order to cover his weakness, mistake and mismanagement…

    • Obama’s advice to Najib….please go

      • Good one.

    • This statement by Minister in PM’s Dept Paul Low must be repeated here and elsewhere to reassure citizens and to ensure commitment by Najib and all concerned in the proper continuation and completion of the 1MDB investigations.

      Low expressed concern with regard to comments made in relation to the probe on 1MDB by the Special Task Force. He issued a statement saying numerous comments “seem to indicate that there are certain parties attempting to hamper the efforts of the Task Force to carry out its investigation”.

      “Uncovering the truth with regards to the various allegations directed at 1MDB is of utmost importance both in the interest of the government and the nation as a whole.

      “The institutions involved in the ongoing investigations are duty bound to carry out their responsibilities independently, transparently and without fear or favour to uncover the truth; and to ensure that charges will duly be brought against anyone involved where sufficient evidence of wrongdoing is found in accordance with the law,” he said.

    • Paul Low also assured the public that he will continue to stand firm in protecting these institutions and their respective officers, and will see to it that they are allowed to conduct the investigations until a satisfactory conclusion is reached.

      “The challenges that we are currently facing as a nation are unprecedented, and it is of prime importance for all of us – especially the rakyat – to support these key institutions and to ensure that their independence and professionalism continue to be safeguarded at all cost,” he added.

      With the changes taking place, he should have said there shall be no change of direction, advice and guidance on those investigations.

      And hopefully they will heed his views and wishes fully. That part saying ” to ensure that charges will duly be brought against anyone involved where sufficient evidence of wrongdoing is found in accordance with the law,” is very pertinent.

      There must be a judicious interpretation of the words “sufficient evidence”. Otherwise the “numerous comments” he referred to will continue endlessly.

  2. Obama’s wise words, “I don’t understand why people want to stay so long especially when they’ve got a lot of money.

    When a leader tries to change the rules in the middle of the game just to stay in office, it risks instability and strife.”

    Perfect advice for Dato’ Sri Haji Mohammad Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak .

  3. “digital illiteracy” is not an excuse.

    Read the New York Times report “Facebook wins over presidential hopefuls”, even if the Times is a “Neo-con” publication.

    Marc Rotenberg, president of the Electronic Privacy Information Centre: “I think most users really have no idea how much information Facebook collects information about them or how Facebook is able to infer from even a post to a friend what their political orientation might be. If you are a Facebook user, Facebook knows everything you’ve said, everything you’ve posted, everything you’ve clicked on.”

  4. Excellent news –

    IGP said Police will investigate Sarawak Report’s founder Clare Rewcastle-Brown. Although said only in reference to the publication of its latest article on the “Najib charge sheets”, information on 1MDB may come out – after all PDRM is also a member of the Special Task Force.

    “We have received many reports about this article and will investigate accordingly,” he told reporters here. The Sarawak Report had claimed that it was in possession of “charge sheets” purportedly drafted by former Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail, calling for the arrest of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

    He, however, declined to elaborate on how the investigation will be carried out as the woman is a Brit and resident in UK. Yes, “We have our ways,” he told reporters here. Let’s hope volumes of info will come out, giving answers to the many questions raised on the 1MDB issue.

    Whatever information on 1MDB – one way or the other – that will help resolve the issue.

  5. It’s heartening to read the statement issued by the new Attorney-General that “allegations of funds transmitted to Najib’s accounts are still being investigated”.

    “The investigations are underway. It would not be appropriate to divulge details that may compromise the investigations. More specifically, it would not be appropriate to disclose the advice, instructions, directions or guidance given to the investigating agencies.” Let’s hope no changes are made in respect of the “advice, instructions, directions or guidance” given by Gani Patail.

    “While the public is entitled to be informed, details of criminal investigations which comprise, among other things, contents of statements given by witnesses are privileged and the law prohibits such matters to be disclosed,” he said in a statement Friday.

    Yes, we need to be informed and there should be announcements on the progress of the investigations from time to time.

  6. It’s more heartening to read the AG’s acknowledgement of the wishes of the investigating agencies. He said, “As the investigating agencies have repeatedly emphasised, it is crucial to preserve the integrity of the investigations as the public must not doubt them.” Doubts exist because Gani was suddenly removed from the post. The public is watching very closely now.

    Good that the new AG appreciates that “there is deep public interest and concern in the progress and outcome of the investigations relating to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

    “This includes the concerns of the Special Committee on Corruption, the Anti-Corruption Advisory Board, the Operations Review Panel, the Complaints Committee, and the Consultation and Corruption Prevention Panel of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission,” he said.

    Good of the investigating agencies and of the AG noting that the investigating agencies had issued statements to provide general updates on developments in the investigations, including the raid on the offices of 1MDB at Menara IMC in Kuala Lumpur on July 8 and on the materials seized there.

    “Media statements have also been issued by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission on the arrest and remand of persons to assist in their investigations,” he said.

  7. Because of the sudden removal of Gani Patail from his post just 2 months from his compulsory retirement, and on grounds of ill health that the public do not see he has, we need to repeat that the public is watching very closely on the progress of the investigations.

    The public shall be making all the possible analyses of known scenarios and statements to determine there is no undue changes to the advice and instructions on the mode, the mood and the speed of the investigations.

    As the AG is new, right now we are placing our trust on the integrity of the Senior Officers under him, notably the Deputy AGs and the Assistant AGs or equivalent ranks.

    The statement referred to above is better worded than the first one issued by the new AG. Presumably the Senior Officers of the AG Chambers have a part in the drafting. If so, kudos to them.

    Some time back there was the kind of guy in the AG Chambers who prosecuted in one of the Anwar Ibrahim sodomy trials and lost. Soon after he retired and appeared in Anwar’s defence team in another trial.

    But we believe there are enough good and conscientious officers in the AGC to trust that what are said in the AG’s statement issued to day can be held on to.

  8. Nak dengar cakap si Penuduh, si Penuduh buat tuduhan menggunakan bukti yang tidak dapat dipastikan kesahihannya.

    Nak percaya percaya cakap si Dituduh, si Dituduh mempertahankan diri dengan cara yang meragukan.

    Catch-22..

    Yang pasti isu ini serius dan mendapat perhatian semua. Saya percaya truth will prevail, its just a matter of time. Cuma saya harap when the time comes, ianya tidak terlambat untuk kita sebagai sebuah negara dan diri ini serta tuan-tuan semua berada “on the right side of history”…

    • Kalau nak tunggu jadi “on the right side of history”, lama sangat tuh. Menunggu jawapan fasal 1MDB sehingga hari ini pun dah kira lama. Nak dengar cakap betul tidak pun belom dapat. Pada hal Pasukan Petugas Khas dah akui ada ekaun ekaun Ambank tuh.

  9. It seems to me that censorship of the internet will never be fully effective. Every day rogue elements try to hack, block, steal information and disseminate spam all over the places.

    They are getting better, smarter and successful every so often. The Snowdons may be politically motivated. The Justos simply want money. And the DAP Red Beans just want to create a nuisance, confuse readers or prevent them from uninterrupted reading of the anti-DAP arguments frequently dished out in blogs etc.

    In trying to protect confidential information, trade secrets and highly valued formulae and codes, governments, business and research organizations the world over also employ hackers who are highly skilled that they know how to prevent others hacking into sites whose owners want hack-proof protection. Hackers who, in these instances are known as anti-hacking experts, are said to be highly paid. Using thieves to catch thieves will become common.

    They don’t teach hacking at University IT courses but students learn the principles of it and some try for the fun of it in their spare time or for relaxation. Ask the Red Bean buggers, many may proudly say they know how to un-block or get rid of “Error 404” or “Access Denied” sites. A few even laugh off bloggers complaining of such. In future the world will be quite full of hackers and censorship may not mean much.

    Yes, it may end up in self destruction of mankind when foreign armies can hack the top secret codes to nuclear arsenals like those US or Russian Presidents reportedly carry everywhere they go. Despite the frequent changes that must be done to such codes for greater protection. Sorry for the doom and gloom that 1MDB has also brought to us in this country.

    • Clarification:

      Sorry for the doom and gloom. But 1MDB has also brought such an atmosphere to us in this country.

  10. Malaysian PM’s Wife Seeks Central Bank Governor’s Ouster

    http://www.asiasentinel.com/politics/malaysian-pm-wife-seeks-central-bank-governor-ouster/

    • “Insiders say Rosmah, a lightning rod for criticism over her lavish spending, is the field marshal directing the defense of her beleaguered husband’s government.”

  11. Yes, the role of the social media – the masses could be riled up to start ground swell movements. But I doubt an ‘Arab Spring’ of the kind in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya could occur in Malaysia.

    Good that Anwarul Al Juburi has been locked up. The prison authorities should not allow him to be still active in politics by making statements through his lawyers or family visitors. The man who went on street demos without Police permits and, after the Peaceful Assembly Act, asked people to assemble in places not agreed to by the Police, had caused quite some nuisance. His influence on the public should be zero when in prison.

    PDRM is efficient in handling attempts at street demos and holding illegal rallies. They did well at Bersih 2.0. And the Military has said that they are willing to come out to assist if called for.

    The group with the unruly and provocative name “TangkapNajib Rally” has been warned not to demo to day. Indeed, two of the leaders have been arrested yesterday. But the Bersih people are starting to talk strange on their planned 4.0 rally. Agreed that when they sound wanting to overthrow the democratically elected government, their leaders should be thrown into the Police lock up.

    Rallying for election reforms and the like under the Peaceful Assembly Act is certainly ok. But Bersih has the tendency to lump in all other issues of the Opposition parties, and that bastardise their intentions. Not discussing with the Police on suitable venue will make them violate the Peaceful Assembly Act.

    All those said, one needs to repeat the need for the authorities to complete reasonably early the 1MDB investigations by the Special Task Force and the PAC. The statements by Minister Paul Low and by the Attorney General yesterday – Friday – must be adhered to fully.

    • Malaysia Kini kata Polis tangkap 20 orang pemimpin “TangkapNajib Rally” itu, di masuk lori, di bawak ke tempat tahanan. “Stillborn rally”, kata dia orang. Bagus.

      Suruh bayar 83 sen siapa nak baca lanjut. Saya tak rela bayar 1 sen pun.

    • Ini laporan asiaone.com:

      Police arrested two assemblyman at the protest calling for the Prime Minister’s Resignation at the Sogo Shopping Complex here.
      Teja assemblyman Chang Lih Kang and Simpang Pulai assemblyman Tan Kar Hing were detained at 2.20pm.

      The two assemblymen earlier engaged in discussions with the police after they had instructed the crowd to disperse. The two assemblymen were then escorted into the police truck minutes after.

      Two separate explosions were heard after the arrests, believed to have been caused by firecrackers.

      Several shops on Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman including Sogo had also closed their doors. The road also closed to traffic from Sogo onwards heading towards Dataran Merdeka.

      Police had also made an announcement on loudspeaker asking the public to disperse and leave the area.

  12. Bd

    dont you get tired of doing gali lobang tutup lobang job for Najib….

  13. asiaone.com reported that Umno vice president Hishammuddin wants party members to respect deputy president Muhyiddin.

    He stressed that Muhyiddin has put party struggles above all else despite being left out in the recent Cabinet line up.

    Coming from a Vice President and Najib’s cousin, it should mean a lot.

    But why is Singapore PM Lee Hsien Loong expressing hope for continued stability in Malaysia, saying in a TV interview yesterday that Singapore was highly concerned about the possible political and social unrest in Malaysia?

    Bloody hell, when Maha Chauvinist and Little Emperor of the Little Red Dot Lee Kuan Yew imported Chinese until Singapore became 72% Chinese, did any Malaysian PM express concern? Despite reports that Singapore leaders feeling disgusted that the imported Chinese who had never known freedom and rights in their previous homeland started demanding this and that on labour rights etc in Singapore.

    In fact that single chauvinistic and racist act of the highest order had caused concern among many in their neighbouring countries, only that Malaysian PM did not whack Lee Kuan Yew publicly. Another example of ultra kiasus always exploiting situations to try and show they are better. But others know better and when Lee Kuan Yew at one time expressed interest in being the Secretary General of UN, most member countries simply didn’t bother about it.

    • He’s looking for distract and conquer tactics. Singapore’s election is round the corner.

      Malaysia had been their favourite bogeyman throughout the years.

  14. And there are the ultra kiasus at home here in Malaysia always trying to exploit situations to weaken the Government. DAP. When others merely want Najib out, they want the whole Government out.

    “PM using DAP to cover up RM2.6b”, says Loke, DAP national organising secretary, accusing BN of “using his party to divert from claims of multi-billion deposits in Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s personal bank accounts.”

    This was after Najib blamed DAP for blocking reforms for better transparency in political funding amid claims the Umno president received RM2.6 billion in his own accounts.

    BN strategic communication director Abdul Rahman Dahlan had similarly blamed DAP for being a stumbling block for political funding reform in an opinion piece yesterday.

    Loke accused BN of blaming DAP for disagreeing with the political funding reform but “had no qualms in bulldozing “draconian” laws” which DAP opposed. The laws being enacted in recent months are “draconian”? The usual loose gun, shooting from the hip like “cowboys in the wild, wild west”.

    Claiming that “the first time ..an Umno prime minister ‘admitted’ that DAP is so powerful in Parliament that we can ‘shoot down’ any efforts by the BN government to legislate new laws in the country”, he is talking nonsense and, again, merely exploiting and twisting what people said. The communist tactic of saying lies so many times in the hope that a few will believe them – DAP with 30 or so seats in a Parliament of 222 seats, yet talking shit that Loke bloke.

  15. Yet the Straits Times Singapore newspaper reporter seems to know better, that there is stability in this country – quoting Umno Supreme Council member Abdul Aziz Kaprawi saying that 154 out of 191 divisions had, via mobile messaging application, discussed and agreed to the removal of Muhyiddin and endorsed the Cabinet reshuffle.

    And the TangkapNajib demonstrators were nipped in the bud – 29 were hauled into Police “Black Maria” trucks, arrested and brought to Police Investigation centres, including 20 of their leaders.

    Nevertheless, there are some 50 Divisions heads who have not said yes to Najib’s actions and the demands for answers to the many questions on 1MDB continue to be aired.

    Those suspected of leaking classified official information are being arrested and investigated, including Officers in the Special Task Force agencies. Let the investigations continue as the public has been asking for answers to the 1MDB scandal for a long time already.

  16. Najib said in Malacca he will not step down as Umno president as there are three million party members firmly behind him.

    154 out of 191 UMNO Divisions = 3/4. 3/4 of 3.5 million members = 2.6 million. But when Najib speaks, don’t argue. He’ll probably say each of the 154 Divisions have more members than each of the about 50 Divisions who have not stated their support for him.

    Najib also said, “If we opt for the middle path, if we choose moderation and are united, loyal to the leader, work hard, serve the people, solve the people’s problems, look after the welfare of all communities, God willing we will win (the elections).” Wow, isn’t that a tall order? No mention of resolving the 1MDB problem. Hope he always remembers getting only 49% of the votes at PRU13.

    Anyway, DAP will be pleased. When Najib spoke for “the middle path”, DAP slogan is “Middle Malaysia”. Although the rakyat has been showing the Middle Finger to the DAP.

  17. The following statements are so damn stupid, have to be tolerated but can be spitted:

    “The arrests are politically motivated,” Eric Paulsen, representing the detainees, said, outside the place where the 29 arrested were dumped. Come on man, those arrested were also politically motivated.

    “All Malaysians have a right to peaceful assembly.” Come on, man, you as a lawyer should know that they did not follow the rules stated in the Peaceful Assembly Act and forfeit their right to that. .

    “It is a serious exaggeration to claim that their activities were unlawful assembly or worse, detrimental to parliamentary democracy.” Come on , man, you are stupid in not realizing that not following the rules stated in the Peaceful Assembly Act means it was an unlawful assembly.

    And “detrimental to parliamentary democracy” – you ague it in Court lorr. You Oppo Hippo often make so much shito.

  18. Rahman Dahlan tells of trust accounts held by Umno president. No problem. That’s their business.

    Rahman said the money being held in a trust account under Najib’s name as Umno president was not from 1MDB or from public funds.

    Those in the Ambank accounts – we’ll anxiously wait for the results of the Special Task Force investigations. Hope no change in the advice, instructions and direction of the investigations that were in place under Gani Patail.

    Still wondering the real reason why Gani was removed from the post so near to his compulsory retirement.

  19. Don’t know yet what Sultan Johor, Tengku Mahkota and MB Johor discussed at the istana in JB. But what he said in Kluang is interesting.

    He said he would not allow himself to be muted on topics like the 1MDB scandal even though it might displease certain parties, as it is his duty to raise issues of public concern.

    Referring to his friends’ advice, he said he won’t keep quiet. “As a deputy president why would I? I need to speak up.” There was “thundering” response from the crowd of over 400 Umno delegates from the Kluang division at its annual general meeting today.

    He added that the 1MDB issue was not a small matter and has garnered negative attention worldwide.

    “This issue is not just the focus in Malaysia but the whole world. It is a big issue, everyone talks about it from high-level meetings to even the villages,” he said.

    And now they talk at the palace in JB.

  20. Najib: I value loyal people over ‘smart people’
    Malay Mail Online-1 Aug 2015

    Najib said that loyalty was more important than ‘smart people’ … loyalty was a trait harder to find in any individual than intelligence,

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    What else to say? Tough luck, Malaysians. That thinking may be reflected in the new Cabinet. Saying more would be adding insult to injury.

    • And Mahdzir Khalid may not fit Najib’s bill:

      Govt desires to create smart people: Mahdzir Khalid
      The Sun Daily – ‎6 hours ago‎

      ALOR STAR: The government desires to create not only intelligent but also smart people, said new Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid.

  21. Isn’t this flip flopping?

    Najib said in Seremban to day Muslims who invested in Lembaga Tabung Haji (LTH) will stand to be the biggest losers if the pilgrims fund goes ahead with plans to sell its land in the Tun Razak Exchange.

    Didn’t LUTH Chairman Azeeez say he received “advice” from Najib to sell the land and scrambled to find buyers for that piece of real estate bought from 1MDB?

    • The ‘advice’ was most probably heat of the moment, since then the connotation on TH was in the overtone “Pirates plundering the wealth created for simpletons’ pilgrimage, to bail out 1MDB”.

      The blog with the sinister agenda did a very good job of stirring up emotions and almost started depositors to make a run for their savings.

      Now that situation is less tense and the sensation of the heat has simmered down, everyone is back on the level headedness and started thinking again.

      Most likely, they are bent on holding the 1.6ha land earmarked for luxury residential within TRX, since the investment panel and syariah panel both concur to the investment right from the start.

      This is on top that many UMNO MPs and Division Chiefs voiced their concern on the matter and urged TH to reconsider and instead develop the parcel to realise better and possible more sustainable track of continued profits.
