Shocking Audio Recordings

Yesterday, fireworks splattered across the sky spelling out Najib Razak’s name. 

And with good reason too. The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission informed the media that they had in their possession recordings of phone calls that involved a number of individuals – and amongst them were Najib (left), his wife Rosmah Mansor, former MACC chief commissioner Dzulkifli Ahmad, UMNO’s Baling MP Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim and the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi. 

MACC had claimed that the nine sets of audio clips of about 45-minute duration made between January 05, 2016 and July 29 that same year, around the period when the US Justice Department announced their anti-kleptocracy investigation into 1MDB show a conspiracy at the highest level of government then. 

MACC chief Latheefa Koya (right) had declined to explain how they had obtained the recordings but said her team of forensics experts had authenticated them.

“The contents are shocking; it’s a cover-up and subversion of justice... In the public interest, we’re making public the contents”, she gravely announced. 

Najib Razak, not unexpectedly expressed shock. But of course.

The disgraced former prime minister, however, did not confirm nor deny whether the conversations took place and said that he would have to look into the contents of the audio recordings. 

According to The Star Online on January 08, Najib said he would be looking into possible legal action as the audio recordings appeared to be from taps on his phone.
