Naib Razak Charged with Money Laundering

Yesterday, Najib Razak (left) was slapped with additional charges.

He was charged with three counts of money laundering, with the first count involving RM27 million, the second count involving RM5 million and the third count involving RM10 million. 

These charges came under Section 4(1) of the Anti-Money-Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2002. 

The Section 4(1) offence is punishable by a maximum 15-year jail term and a fine of RM5 million or a minimum five times of the value of the unlawful proceeds at the time the offence was committed, depending on whichever sum is higher. 

Najib was allowed an extension of bail for his latest criminal case of allegedly laundering a sum of RM42 million. Lucky him! So, no need for any more fund-raising charade!

And I read that he could even afford a smile  at least that was what one media remarked when he made his court apperance.

Another media noted there were fifteen 'fans' who came to show support this time around. Go do your maths. 15 x RM50 = RM750. What a cheapskate. 

Anyway, Najib pleaded not guilty and claimed trial.

I don’t know about you – but to me, the wheels of justice are turning oh so slowly! When can I see Najib in Sungai Buloh prison? I'm getting impatient.

Whenever I see a photo of an empty cell, I'm reminded of Najib. I can just picture him in there! 

It does complete the photo, if I may add!

On Wednesday, I was at Wisma Lafarge in Jalan Kilang, Petaling Jaya in Selangor – there was a Toastmasters meeting there, that's why. 

The LafargeHolcim Toastmasters Club is hoping to get a new lease of life – and I was invited to participate and in the process, giving them much-needed support. 

I was the Toastmaster-of-the-Day and overall, I think the external Toastmasters who were there did enough to excite Lafarge staff and get them interested in Toastmasters. I really believe so.
