The “Malaysian Official 1” – who had received $731 million of funds originating from 1MDB – had been described in the DOJ filings as a high-ranking Malaysian public officer who had a high position in 1MDB and is a relative of Najib’s stepson Riza Aziz. Hmmm, who can that be?
When asked why “Malaysian Official 1” was not named, US attorney-general Loretta Lynch clarified that the lawsuits only name those they need to name to meet the objective of seizing the assets.
Former PM Mahathir Mohamad said yesterday that only stupid people cannot recognize that “Malaysian Official 1” refers to Najib Razak.
He added: “UMNO leaders should stop lying to themselves. You know Najib is guilty, and you know Najib is not qualified to be prime minister”.
He said that UMNO leaders who continue to be in denial are abetting a crime. And if I may add that includes the Cabinet too.
Yesterday, I was in Rumah Puspanita in KL’s Jalan Hose where I attended the NAWEM Toastmasters meeting. I delivered an Advanced speech from the Speaking to Inform manual – a speech titled “An Ethical Dilemma”.
It was a good meeting and we actually filled up the room.
