Home Minister Dato’ Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi issued a stern warning to those who are out to ridicule and demonize the Prime Minister and his administration with distorted information and lies, deemed as a national threat.
It is without a doubt that there clear concerted effort to by foreign and domestic bodies, to confuse the rakyat with distorted and fabricated information laced in emotional-charging connotation with specific sinister agenda.
It is clear that London-based Sarawak Report which is funded by Global Witness and Open Soceity Forum, creatures which were created by New Con Jew George Soros who is known as a ‘rogue’ due to his tendency to challenge and disrupt economic system, philosophy, norms and values and promote liberalism, LGBT and civil liberty.
Then there is Wall Street Journal which is part of another Neo Con Jew Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp media empire worked in tandem with Sarawak Report and a staunch Anwarista Tong Kooi Ong’s media arm The Edge and BFM, all echoing the same unsubstantiated stories.
All these consistent echoing of messages and drumming of mismanagement, corruption and abuse of strategic investment corporation 1MDB are designed to ridicule, arouse the sentiment the rakyat and eventually topple Prime Minister Najib’s administration.
Protection Group International (PGI) admitted that the information on Petro Saudi and 1MDB venture wasn’t correct but instead of rectifying the errors, Xavier Justo went to Sarawak Report instead.
The Malay Mail story:
Sarawak Report data on 1MDB ‘unreliable’, says PGI chief

PETALING JAYA, July 5 — Protection Group International (PGI) managing director Brian Lord said Sarawak Report’s information on the alleged impropriety in PetroSaudi International Ltd’s aborted joint venture with 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) was “inconsistent” and “unreliable”.
Speaking to Malay Mail, he said there were inconsistencies between the original information and what was published by the blog. He also revealed the cyber security firm was hired by PetroSaudi to investigate the source of the data published online and verify its authenticity.
“When one does the compare and contrast of the data in the systems with the one in Sarawak Report, there are inconsistencies,” Lord said.
He said if an individual believes a wrongdoing had occured, he could report the matter to the authorities in Malaysia, Switzerland or United Kingdom or take it to an established media.
“But he (arrested Swiss national Xavier Justo) didn’t do that.
“Having gone through the process of trying to extort money from the former employer with threats to leak the data and being refused, he (Justo) could have still gone to the authorities had there been any wrong doing. But he chose to go to Sarawak Report.
“I am not making any comment on the political persuasion of Sarawak Report but he chose to take it to that kind of blog site. So even before we move on to the forensics, any information that he presented to the public after that process has to be treated with a huge amount of caution,” said Lord who has more than 20 years experience in cyber security.
Lord added investigations by PGI revealed Sarawak Report had a “subtract of some emails chain and some documentation”. He, however, stopped short of divulging the contents of the emails and data Sarawak Report received.
“It is a combination of all those three things; inconsistency between the original and published reports, substitutable communication and the whole private information claim into Sarawak Report … I can firmly say the information is unreliable and, therefore, it is unfair for anybody to draw judgments on it.”
Justo, a former PetroSaudi executive, was arrested in Thailand last month after he was alleged to have leaked information to Sarawak Report. He was being investigated for extortion and blackmailing his former employer.
Justo had allegedly attempted to blackmail and extort as much as 2.5 million Swiss Francs (RM10 million) from PetroSaudi two years after he was dismissed from the company. He also allegedly threatened to release confidential business information, purportedly stolen from the company, if his demands were not met.
Following the attempted blackmail, various emails and documents were published by Sarawak Report, sparking criticism against 1MDB.
According to Lord, investigations into the case were led by two analysts who between them had worked on at least 1,000 forensic cases.
“These are people who are highly-regarded specialist in what they do. They have investigated all types of cases involving all types of background. When it comes to the validity and velocity of the company, they have vast experience,” he said.
In stressing the firm’s independence, Lord said investigations were conducted in a controlled environment with no access granted to anyone outside of the forensic investigators, with devices obtained from those involved kept in a forensic laboratory.
“Nobody else, including the client, has access to the laboratory where the investigations are conducted. It is key for the investigations to be uncontaminated. In this particular case, we still have the devices under our custody until every line of investigation related to this has ended.”
He said the forensic analysis into this case could take up to six months.
“That leads back to the point of depending on what level of granularity the process requires and whether that is inclined to a subsequent legal process. That leads to a point where there are things that we can say and can’t,” he added.
● On a company spokesman quoted by an English daily
“Clients want a clear, unambiguous and unbiased view of what the investigations will show. We are obliged to adhere to certain standards on how we operate. Forensics investigations can take a long time depending on what level of information is required. At that point thereof, where there is a complete lack of clarity over things, that requires a public statement. But we will only make statements which we are sure we can validate. In forensics investigations, there are points that can be established quite quickly and there are things that require more time to go into deeper analysis. But there are certain points throughout the investigation where things will become clear and if it does help clarify the situation, particularly in the case like this where a lot of it is being played up in public domain, sometimes it (a statement) can be helpful for both parties.”
● On the implication of such articles
“Responsible media outlets such as newspapers check their sources, the validity of such sources and information as well as the motive of the sources before an editorial decision is made to publish. That is a sensible, matured decision. If a blogging site is considered as an independent voice, then it has to do the same thing and if it chooses to just publish random information obtained, then it has no right to be taken seriously. I support the Sarawak Report’s right to publish whatever political opinion they have … people have different opinions, but the point remains how seriously would it take itself if it gets hold of data obtained inappropriately and chooses to publish it in that way, editorialising it to meet political ends. Freedom of speech comes with responsibility.”
The objective is rather quite clear. Prime Minister Najib is up and rising into the world geo-political arena, moreover in his call for ‘moderation of interpretation and practice of Islam’ against the flavour of extremism by very minority pockets of Muslims who are causing detrimental global perception towards Islam and Muslims.
This extremism by these pockets of terrorists using very skewed interoperation of ultraconservative Islam has taken centre stage in many countries and compounded further with their sophisticated use of social media networks to grow support from common people.
Prime Minister Najib’s ‘Wasatiyyah’ agenda earned recognition by world leaders such as President Barack H Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron.
This is the current global bogey man, in the current geo-political turmoil such as in Ukraine, Iraq, Yemen, Libya and the on going tug-of-war game in South China Sea.
Prime Minister Najib administration now chairs the Association of South East Asian Nation (ASEAN) and sits as a non permanent member of the United Nations Security Council.
It is quite clear that it is imperative for the New Con Jews act to ensure that an upcoming global leader like Prime Minister Najib could be subdued to their agenda or otherwise, politically eliminate him.
