The Hijrah gravely needed for the likes of Pua

In wake of the recent statement by the Attorney General, the very morning of 1 Muharram 1437H 1MDB issued the call for Strategic Director Tony Pua to “Present the clear cut evidence” and “Walk the Talk”, or risk losing the position of adjudication.

Walk the Talk, YB Tony Pua

1MDB refers to a statement issued on 14 October 2015 by YB Tony Pua which, in typical “instant expert” style, is long on rhetoric but short on facts.

The facts are as presented by the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC), via a clear and unambiguous statement issued on 13 October 2015 (www.agc.gov.my). In summary, the AGC, having reviewed all relevant documentation contained in the Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) investigation papers (including the application forms submitted by 1MDB and the relevant BNM letters issued), applied the relevant laws governing such matters and confirmed that “no offence had been committed” by 1MDB.

This confirmation by the AGC reinforces the statement by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on 22 September 2015 that 1MDB is not under investigation.

1MDB continues to work closely with National Audit Department to provide requisite information for its final report, which will be presented by year end to the bi-partisan Public Accounts Committee (PAC), of which YB Tony Pua is a member.

YB Tony Pua claims his “expose” will provide “clear cut evidence” of “criminal breach of trust, abetting misappropriation and embezzlement” to the investigating authorities. These are serious criminal accusations, so we urge YB Tony Pua to “walk the talk” and provide his “clear cut evidence” to the lawful authorities for further investigation. 1MDB has consistently maintained that if there is any evidence of wrongdoing, then action must be taken under the law.

However, if he cannot provide such evidence, then YB Tony Pua should stop making wild and unproven allegations, which are clearly politically motivated.

**********

Pua has been time and again abuse his position, role and function as a Parliamentarian Public Accounts Committee (PAC) member.

PAC is a select committee appoint by Parliamentarians, having the power to scrutinise the accounts of Government agencies and departments. It is supposed to be the highest forum of audit committee.

PAC is expected to be professional in their approach, in upholding the interest of the rakyat who voted Parliamentarians to represent them in the augur legislative chambers.

What Pua did was bastardising that position, role and authority for his sinister political agenda.

That is why Pua and his likes of demons should do the Hijrah and transform, in the name of the righteousness that they have been elected to do for the rakyat.

Then there is the other pressing various aggregated situation pertaining to 1MDB by various parties.

Yesterday Attorney General Tan Sri Apandi Ali put it sternly on record in a media conference that Bank Negara Malaysia erred in their statements with regards to matters pertaining to 1MDB, which include the approval of monies remittance in the past.

In the case of the arrest and charge of Khairuddin and Chang for “Attempting to sabotage the Malaysia’s banking and financial system”, Apandi also put that the ‘disaster duo’ were arrested and investigated under Security Ordinance (Special Measures) Act (2012). Later, the ‘disaster duo’ were charged under Article 124L of the Penal Code, not SOSMA (2012).

“SOSMA is a procedural law that provides the special measures to facilitate the investigation and prosecution of what is known as ‘Security Offences’. It is not limited to terrorism or terrorist alone”.

The former Federal Court Judge also added that SOSMA allowed persons to be arrested and investigated even they are not terrorists. Hence, the arrest of the ‘disaster duo’  is valid and legal.

Apandi was strong in highlighting the ‘Former Club’s first-thing-in-the media conference in Precinct 10, Putrajaya, which was designed to rile up the emotions of Malaysians.

They collective and in sundry issued strong but misleading statements to project that the Federal Government abused the law, for the purpose of ‘protecting Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak in the controversy issues arisen from 1MDB and its ongoing investigations’.

It is the right time for Pua and the ‘Former Club’ six and their staunchest supporters to do the Hijrah, for the betterment of the majority if not all Malaysians.

  1. Hijrah form the subject of 1MDB and RM2.6 billion is not possible until the questions raised by the public have been answered and the issues resolved.

    Now the Auditor General’s office has said the Final Report would be ready at the end of the year. Will be sent to the PAC. But no news when the PAC will be re-constituted and when will details of the Report be disclosed in Parliament and be available to the public.

    The rakyat must not be prevented or scared off from asking questions and stating their views. This is a democratic country and dissent must be allowed. Interpretation of the existing laws must be fair and reasonable. Good that the new AG has explained that the detention and charge of the two “Mahathir’s men” is not under POTA. What was reported as said by the DPP on the reading of the charge in court left a doubt on that.

    Tun Dr Mahathir has even dared the authorities to arrest him. It will be a travesty of justice if he is arrested – at his age, considering his contributions to the country for 22 years as PM and he has stated many times that what he wants is the replacement of Najib, not the unseating of Najib’s government. Even on the no-confidence motion, he clarified it by talking about getting the Opposition to agree to UMNO/BN government to continue before such a motion is formally put up.

  2. DAP Tony Pua should of course be told to Hijrah. Those DAP members and supporters who don’t respect and have not been willing to live by the Constitution of he country should not be in this country. Even prominent people have said that such people should berhijrah.

    DAP has been known to be anti-Malay, anti-Islam and caused the race riots of 1969. Their leaders are often loud-mouthed, quick on the draw and shoot from the hips like cowboys in western movies.

    It makes the job of 1MDB and the Establishment much more than otherwise, but explain, counter-argue and belittle such blokes even, so that not just them (who obviously have political motives) but also the public at large have a better understanding and get the answers they have been asking.

    Good that the 1MDB statement even asked Tony Pua to provide his “clear cut evidence” to the lawful authorities for further investigation. Two members of the Special Task Force on 1MDB have shown keenness for it to be re-activated. The MACC Commissioner has spoken about wanting to meet, the IGP has responded and now the new AG is expected to initiate a meeting. The public is watching this closely in the coming days and weeks.
