Jamal Yunos Too Has Jewelry Worth RM120 Million

Najib Razak’s court jester is at it again!
With the US Department of Justice having filed a civil lawsuit seeking to recover $540 million in assets believed to have been bought with stolen 1MDB money – Red shirt leader Jamal Yunos yesterday pulled off another stunt.
He called a press conference and proudly showed off a necklace and ring – and claiming the jewelry pieces were valued at RM120 million. He even expressed the hope of auctioning them soon.
Jamal told the media: “If the DoJ wants to look for me, then this gives me an opportunity to travel to the United States”.
He scolded the opposition for being so gullible as to easily believe the DoJ claim that 1MDB funds were used to buy a 22-carat pink diamond pendant and necklace, worth $27.3 million for the wife of “Malaysian Official 1”.
Jamal said the claims by DoJ were targeted at Prime Minister Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor.
In any case, the DoJ’s 251-page document did not name either Najib or Rosmah, or seek court approval to seize the jewelry. So, what gives?
If we are to believe Jamal and the other Najib apologists, then the Americans are merely trying to stir trouble for our dear PM and wife.
Malaysians shouldn’t tolerate this!
Let’s hope that MO1 will summon the US ambassador to protest the lies perpetuated by the DoJ or instruct the PMO to file a countersuit against the federal executive department of the US government.
Or better still, get the Red Shirts to organize a thousand-only rally with placards denouncing American meddling – and if the MO1 can be a wee bit more generous, the assembled demonstrators can even buy an American flag for them to trample on and afterwards, burn.
