ANWAR IBRAHIM IS INNOCENT AND WHY IT WAS A CONSPIRACY BOTH TIMES!

IN REMEMBRANCE OF ANWAR IBRAHIM'S BIRTHDAY ON 10TH AUGUST, WE RE-POST AN ARTICLE FIRST PUBLISHED IN FEBRUARY 2016.

(Click on pics for enlarged view).

On the anniversary of Anwar Ibrahim's term in prison for that scandalous decision by the Courts of Appeal and the Federal Court in confirming the reversal of his acquittal at the High Court for allegedly engaging in consensual acts against the order of nature with Saiful, Mahathir and Najib look guiltier than ever!

Little wonder Mahathir is parodied as 'Maha Thiruden' (Tamil for 'Great Robber') and Najib as 'Serially Lying and Defrauding Prime Minister'.

WHY THE 1998 SODOMY1 WAS A MAHATHIR CONSPIRACY

1. When charged, Anwar gave the High Court the perfect alibi. The construction of the Bangsar condo in which the accuser Azizan Abu Bakar had alleged that sexual trysts took place, was not completed and certified fit for occupation until two years later!! 

Crooked Attorney General Mohtar then confiscated all of Anwar's diaries. When he found a gap there, he "persuaded" Azizan to "remember" a new date for the charge. Instead of throwing the case out, Judge Augustine Paul incredibly allowed partner-in-crime Mohtar to amend the charges to 'some day between...in 1993'. What a Mahathir conspiratorial ally Paul turned out to be! 

This case should not have proceeded beyond this stage as it was clear Azizan was lying through his eyeteeth, and was being manipulated by conspirators, no doubt for huge monetary gains.

2. AG Mohtar Abdullah had at first "advised" Anwar to make a police report over the publication of '50 Reasons Why Anwar Cannot Become the Prime Minister". Instead of investigating the scurrilous book and its author, Mohtar charged Anwar with Sodomy! With a friend like that, who needed an enemy? Mohtar never woke up from a coma after a stroke in 2003.

3. Mahathir gave press conferences alleging that all kinds of sexual trysts and depraved acts had taken place. There were rumors of "secret tape recordings by the Special Branch in London hotels". To-date, after 17 years, not a single peep, video or photo has emerged.

4. Mahathir personally met several persons who alleged sodomy, secretly. This included the accuser Azizan Abu Bakar (Anwar's wife's chauffeur) and his backers like Ummi Hafilda, before Anwar was arrested and charged. Why did these people go to Mahathir and not the IGP? Why this Arabian Nights type of charades if it was all kosher?

5. At first, Azizan Abu Bakar could not even recall when the alleged incidents took place. He had told no one about it or made a police report until 1998, when Mahathir stepped in.

6. Following Azizan's accusation, Anwar's adopted brother Sukma, and his ex-speech writer Munawar, a US citizen, were both convicted of engaging in homosexual acts with Anwar, after they had "confessed voluntarily" to the gentle probings of our totally neutral police. At his trial, Munawar appeared so spaced out, disoriented and sick that the judge had to ask him if he needed medical assistance. He was represented in court by ex-policemen who had been called to the Bar.

7. Even before Anwar was asked to answer the charges against him, Paul ruled that Anwar could not pursue the defence of conspiracy. This was the first of his many "irrelevant" rulings!

8. DPP Gani Patail then produced that infamous 'Anwar's semen stained mattress' that had been stored in the open at a police station, as evidence. Firstly, it appeared from a map of the alleged semen stains, that sexual acts had taken place in cockscrew fashion all over the mattress! Secondly, even after some 5-7 years, the Chemistry Department claimed the semen stains were fresh and matched Anwar's DNA??!! Someone had manufactured evidence out of thin air!

9. Azizan was charged and convicted of sodomy earlier, but received no prison sentence or caning!

10. Azizan Abu Bakar did not produce a single witness to corroborate his accusation.

11. Azizan Abu Bakar could not name a single hotel at which the alleged crime had taken place, although he claimed it had happened several times in several hotels!

12. Judge Augustine Paul refused to allow the defence to call Mahathir as a witness. If all the allegations were true, and after all it was Mahathir who engineered the entire prosecution, why was Mahathir afraid to come to court, if he was championing the truth? Why did he slink away in gutless fashion like a craven coward?

13. Half-way through the trial, AG Mohtar and DPP Gani Patail realized their DNA evidence and case were in tatters. They filed a motion to amend the sodomy charges to abuse of power and corruption. It had only then dawned on these two geniuses that with only the testimony of one man's words against another, and the passage of time, it was impossible to prove a charge of consensual or non-consensual sex (rape) between accuser Azizan and Anwar!

14. Incredibly again, Judge Augustine Paul allowed the amendment, instead of throwing the case out the nearest window. More than that, Paul, after allowing Anwar's good name to be smeared all over the world, ordered all testimony of sodomy and evidence to be "expunged" from the court records!

15. Anwar was eventually convicted of corruption and abuse of power on the uncorroborated evidence of a single Special Branch officer who testified that Anwar had ordered to him to force witnesses to retract their statements to the police. Some years later, that same officer alleged Mahathir had ordered him to stop investigating a Bank Negara Malaysia Governor in whose desk was found $1 million unaccounted for cash!

16. When the Federal Court over-turned Anwar's conviction in 2004, one of the judges scurrilously wrote that he was convinced homosexual had taken place even though he conceded that Azizan Abu Bakar was an inveterate liar! This was done to protect Mahathir who could still continue to claim that he was justified in his conspiratorial conduct. But really, what place has a judge's personal opinion in a Federal Court judgement, other than spite, intention to smear and covering-up for Mahathir's despicable and vindictive conspiracy.

17. After the trial, Azizan Abu Bakar had started a fashion boutique business. Where Azizan would have had the wealth to go into business on his savings as a driver, is anybody's guess. Half-way through the trial, Azizan was arrested for committing khalwat in September 1999. So much for Azizan's solid credentials and 'higher moral ground' that Augustine Paul, the Court of Appeal and the Federal Court had relied upon and championed.

18. What would have been Azizan's motive for lying? Well, he was sacked from his driver's job, and despite his pleadings, not reinstated. Throughout history, revenge and money have always been powerful reasons for one man to bring down another!

19. What happened to the charges by former by ex-KL CID Chief Mat Zain that DPP Gani Patail and doctors had falsified medical reports? CLICK HERE.

This entire saga was Mahathir's attempt to distract Malaysians from asking for his head for being the primary cause of the 1997 Asian Currency Crisis which wiped out many Malay and Bumiputra businesses and companies to the tune of tens of billions of ringgit.

This included Mahathir's son's public listed company, Perkapalan, which was bailed out by Petronas for $1.7 billion on Mahathir's orders. When Anwar, then Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, objected to government bail out of Mahathir's nepotistic and cronies' businesses, Mahathir struck back with poison and vengeance.

Mahathir also blamed George Soros for short selling the Malaysian Ringgit, causing it to plunge to more than RM4 against the US dollar. He had lashed out at international currency traders as "rogues".

However, in the 80's Mahathir himself had secretly directed Malaysia's federal reserve bank, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), to gamble against the US dollar, resulting in trading losses of more than RM30 billion. Mahathir was found out when the Opposition queried a huge hole in BNM's balance sheet. Mahathir lied in Parliament that the losses amounted to only RM6 billion, and sacked BNM Governor Jaafar Awang. In fact, he had approved BNM cooking the books to hide losses of more than RM30 billion, by re-valuing gold and other reserves upwards, and masking the real size of the massive losses.

So, Mahathir demonising Soros and "rogue" currency traders was aimed at deflecting blame from his own economic planning failures. Do not forget that Mahathir also lost the nation some $2 billion when trying to corner the tin market in the 'Maminco' fiasco. When it suited him, the international currency and futures markets were fair game for anyone with capital, but when he lost gambling big with Taxpayers' hard earned money, it was all an IMF/Zionist/Jewish/Soros plot to topple obscure Malaysia!

The BNM trader mainly responsible for those losses and who was asked to leave BNM, Nor Mohamad Yakcop, has miraculously found his way back in government. Appointed Finance Minister II from 2004-2009, he is now Head of the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) with the rank of Minister in the Prime Minister's Office. Only in Malaysia! The EPU is often referred to as the Economic Plundering Unit!!



WHY THE 2008 SODOMY2 WAS A CONSPIRACY COOKED UP BY SERIALLY LYING AND $2.6 BILLION DEFRAUDING PRIME MINISTER NAJIB

1. The appeal against Anwar's acquittal at the High Court was filed almost on the last day before the deadline expired. AG Gani Patail was reluctant to appeal. However, Najib and BUMNO hardliners pressured him to file the appeal to the Court of Appeal which promptly reversed the High Court decision!

2. As with Sodomy1 and Azizan Abu Bakar, Saiful's accusation of sodomy on 28 June 2008, was uncorroborated. He did not produce a single witness to support his allegations. Once again, it was a case of one man's words against another, backed by iffy DNA evidence and a posse of government doctors prepared to slant their testimony to save their jobs, despite the lack of evidence of penetrative sex. 

NAJIB'S FIRST PUBLIC LIE
3. Najib first lied that he knew of no one named Saiful. When a photo was published of Saiful posing outside Najib's office with his aide Khairil Anas Yusof, Najib did a u-turn and said Saiful had asked for help with a scholarship and had met his aide.

NAJIB'S SECOND PUBLIC LIE
4. Later, more news emerged of a meeting between Saiful and Najib, at Najib's home, two days before the alleged sexual act took place. Present at that meeting were also Khairil and lawyer Shafee (whom AG Gani Patail later appointed as outside counsel to handle the government's case at the Court of Appeal, and now rumored to be in line for the AG's jon). Then, Najib had telephone IGP Musa and later Saiful himself called Musa who set up a meeting between Saiful and SRC Rodwan at the Melia Hotel. This was all confirmed by Saiful under oath in court! 

Apparently, Najib only advised Saiful to make a police report.

BUT, NAJIB LIED TO THE WORLD AT LARGE, TWICE!

5. Prior to that meeting, Saiful had secretly met up with Khairil, his uncle 'Pet', Mumtaz Jaafar (who was a Director of the National Athletes' Foundation where Najib's wife Rosmah was the Chairman) AND Anwar's ex-right hand man who had defected to UMNO, Senator Mohamed Ezam Nor!!

6. On the day of the alleged incident having taken place at a condo owned by Anwar's friend, Saiful made every effort to make sure his image would be captured on CCTV cameras there. However, they were no recordings whatsoever of Saiful entering that particular condo.

7. Although AG Gani Patail had filed charges of consensual sex against the order of nature, Saiful had claimed under oath that it was non-consensual and that it had happened 7 or 8 times. Raped 7 or 8 seven times in various locations including in overseas hotel rooms??!! He kept going back for more punishment when he could have resigned his job with Anwar? He never put up a fight against someone about 40-years older than him and who was known internationally to be a chronic back-ache sufferer? No witnesses, no one heard screams or protests? Why did he not file a police report earlier!

8. When there was a blatant contradiction between the 'consensual' charge and Saiful's claim under oath of of rape, Judge Yusof Zainal Abden still refused to throw out the case. 

9. If it was non-consensual, why did Saiful go to the condo with a tube of KY jelly in his pocket? Saiful only brought up the issue of KY jelly when testifying on the stand, but had made no mention of it to doctors or in his police report. This was another obvious lie by Saiful, as government chemists found no evidence of KY jelly on the bed or carpets in the condo, on his underwear or in his body!

10. A Burmese doctor at the Pusrawi Hospital, where Saiful had gone to complain of a stomach pain, had written a report that Saiful had told him that a VIP had inserted a plastic object into his anus. Saiful denied this on the stand, but that report has been published. There was no reason for an experienced and totally unconnected GP to mislead anyone. So, why did Saiful deny it? The Burmese doctor also found no evidence of forced or other penetration, no blood-stains, semen or torn clothes/underwear when examining Saiful. (Look at picture above). The DPP did not call the Burmese doctor to testify!!!! 

If there was no penetration, how could any semen have been found deep inside Saiful's body, unless he planted it there himself or with the aid of an accomplice with ulterior motives (See 14 & 15 below)? Which is where a plastic dildo might have come into play!!

11. Saiful also claimed that he had not gone to the toilet or washed himself for 3 days, when questioned about the pristine condition of DNA samples extracted from his body. Does this sound credible to anyone? This is the stuff of babies in the womb choking themselves laughing!

12. Testimony was introduced showing that the day after the alleged incident, Saiful had been seen at Anwar's house, none the worse for wear!

13. Saiful had testified that although he had campaigned for UMNO, he had voted for Anwar and the Opposition!! This dove-tails with another of his claims that Anwar had bought "expensive" designer jeans for him. However, when checked, the jeans in question was found with the labels snipped off, and appeared to be a fake, of the kind sold in Petaling Street. Saiful's claims were convenient, worthless and desperate statements that could not be proved!

14. Despite objections from the Chemistry Department Head, Inspector Jude Pereira had removed DNA samples stored in their freezer and kept it in his desk drawer at Brickfields Police Station. When questioned how he could have been sure about the temperature in those desk drawers at his air-conditioned office to ensure no degradation of the DNA samples, Jude gave his now infamous and scurrilous reply - "I stuck my hands in the drawers and it felt okay"??!!

15. Inspector Jude claimed he only wanted to re-label the samples for clarity, yet after 96 hours outside SOP rules of storage, doctors and chemists swore the DNA samples were pristine, which was a statistical impossibility! Why re-label in secrecy? Why could Inspector Jude not have re-labelled the samples at the Chemistry Department in the presence of its Head and other officers? It's obvious Jude was up to no good, yet the Federal Court dismissed this most crucial evidence that there was a conspiracy to frame Anwar! 

At the High Court, Judge Zainal Abiden, in freeing Anwar, had been convinced that Jude had compromised the chain and nature of the DNA samples. He was the only judge who could have noted Jude's demeanour, body language and the guilty look on his face when pounded by defence lawyers. Yet, the judges at the Court of Appeal and the Federal Court, which included Chief Justice Arifin, refused to concur with Abiden's logical evaluation and judgement. 

16. The High Court judge refused to allow the defence access to Saiful's cautioned statement to the police, other legal documents and the prosecutions list of witnesses!

17. The DNA evidence extracted from Saiful's body suggested the strong possibility that Saiful had sex with other men. This made nonsense of Saiful's claim that he was straight as an arrow. The prosecution glossed over this by claiming the samples could have been contaminated by male doctors. It prompted Anwar's lawyer Ram Karpa singh to remark:

"It seems half a football team's DNA was found on Saiful, but you chose not to report it"! CLICK HERE. The Chemistry Department's DNA specialist, Dr. Seah Lay Hong, refused to respond!

18. In March 2013, Saiful's father, Azlan Mohamad Lazim, held a press conference where he announced that the persecution of Anwar on sodomy charges was an evil political conspiracy planned in Najib's office. Quote: "Even the script I read out to the press after Anwar's acquittal at the High Court was prepared by Najib's officers". CLICK HERE.

Saiful was obviously planted in Anwar's office by Najib and his co-conspirators to try and incriminate Anwar any way they could - innuendos, half-truths and plain lies.


This conspiracy could not in any way have involved ex-PM Badawi. How could it, when it was Badawi and his son-in-law KJ who made sure Anwar's Sodomy1 unjust conviction was squashed in 2004?



Donplaypuks® with political persecutions and conspiracies, Mahathir and serially lying and defrauding PM Najib!

EXTRA! EXTRA! SOMETHING SMELLS FISHY! YETI, PATAIL, MACC & IGP TASK FORCE WAS OUT TO GET NAJIB?


.


(Click on pic for enlarged view)

On reflection, this entire episode about a now disbanded Task Force which had been out in March this year to send PM Najib on forced early retirement to Bamboo River Resort, smells very, very fishy. It stinks to high heaven!

Najib is also the Finance Minister who set up 1MDB as a 100% government owned company under the Ministry of Finance. He was 1MDB's main advisor who had sole authority over its hiring and firing, project approval and finances. In short, nothing and nobody moved at 1MDN unless Najib gave the go ahead first. Najib is now pretending that "others" were responsible for the fraud, misappropriation, looting and plundering at 1MDB.

And who were the members of this band very quickly dubbed 'Task Farce', which really only started responding to public and international concerns about 1MDB, its $46 billion debt and $30 billion hole in is balance sheet, AFTER the Wall St Journal and Sarawak Report exposed massive fraud by Malaysian Crime Minister Najib? 

1. BNM ex-governor Yeti who over the last ten years had not raised a peep about hundreds of billions of ringgit that had illegally flowed in and out of the country. When questioned by 60 Minutes of ABC about why she had turned away officers from Arab Malaysia Merchant Bank (AMMB) who approached her about funny money flowing through Najib's personal account with AMMB, she waffled about BAFIA and said she was looking into it i.e. 3 years after the events had occurred! Someone's lying for sure and covering up, no?

There were also the BUMNO-sponsored pre-paid bloggers who were quick to come out with news about Yeti's husband having benefited to the tune of several million ringgit in shares insider trading, and about suspiciously massive (multi-million $) amounts spent by BNM on renovations.

Yeti's replacement at BNM, Muhammad Ibrahim, quickly closed the file on 1MDB after fining it an undisclosed sum for lying to BNM about $2.1 billion of cash that never existed! But this did not hurt Najib, 1MDB or its thieving CEOs and directors an iota, since, ultimately, all of its money comes from the Taxpayers' pockets! But, why the secrecy about the fine? Who is BNM accountable to and who is it protecting from public anger?

2. Ex-Attorney General Gani Patail, who for years supported Mahathir and Najib in fixing the cases against Anwar Ibrahim and prosecuting and falsely convicting him of sodomy, and who despite RPK's revelations that he was in the pay of the Chinese Triads, did not sue him for slander and/or defamation. In recent years, Patail was also exposed by the courts (as were Kevin Morais and others at MACC of lying on the stand) to have abused his powers in vindictively prosecuting innocent lawyer Rosli Dahlan just for representing his client, ex-deputy IGP Ramli Yusoff who was caught in a power tussle at the Royal Malaysian Police. CLICK HERE AND HERE.

3. Abu Kassim of MACC who was there with MACC's top lieutenants in 2009 when Teoh Beng Hock was mysteriously found dead on the roof of the MACC office in Shah Alam. Najib had promised TBH's family to 'leave no stone unturned' in 'getting to the bottom of it'. But till today, the stones remain unturned, as is the case too with yet another mysterious 'suicide death by accident' 2011 incident at yet another MACC office, i.e. the death of Ahmad Sarbaini. Of course, we need not go further with corruption in the $8 billion Scorpene Submarine cases involving Najib and his crony Abdul Razak Baginda, where despite the murder by C4 explosives of Altantuya, MACC found no grounds for prosecution!

4. IGP Khalid Abu Bakar who is now regarded by most Malaysians as nothing more than a bully in uniform, found no reason to re-open the Altantuya case despite unshakeable evidence that the orders to kill Altantuya came from the very top at Putrajaya. He has yet to commence an investigation into massive corruption at 1MDB despite promising one several months ago.

Yet, it was he, who, together with new AG Apandi, who assisted Najib in closing down permanently the Task Force when he (Najib) had several investigators at BNM and MACC arrested and called in for "questioning" and transferred out later. Yeti's tenure at BNM was not extended. Najib also had the PAC inquiry into 1MDB disrupted after "promoting" several of its members as Ministers, Deputy Ministers and Senators, and appointing crony 'Cari Makan' Hasan Ariffin as its Chairman. Hasan immediately watered down the PAC report, and altered it illegally without the committee's knowledge.

Only a low IQ and slow-witted fool like Bakar, who is obviously jockeying for a very cushy and sinecure (gaji buta) and financially lucrative post-retirement position like Home Minister, Ambassador to France or Chairman of EPF or something like that from Najib, would think that he could get away with it. 

So, why would these four who have illegally supported the establishment and Najib for years, turn on him? Make no mistake, everyone one of them is a crook in the real sense. It makes no sense at all, unless:

They were given advance notice about the WSJ and Sarawak Report expose, and decide to initiate a CYA - cover-your-ass - action. Patail even leaked a "charge sheet' for Najib's arrest to make it look all serious and legal. More than likely, the Task Farce chiefs would have used the "charge sheet" to negotiate an indecent pay-off from Najib, and then flusheded it down the toilet. After all, Najib still has $2 billion of the $2.6 billion "Arab Royal donation' now exposed by the US DoJ as a blatant lie, stashed away somewhere overseas!

In the event, Patail was sacked, Yeti and Kassi's tenure at BNM and MACC respectively not extended. Probably, they dared not call Najib's bluff of keeping them busy at the courts and draining them financially for the next 10 years as they fought charges of corruption, mismanagement, abuse of power and, possibly their and their immediate family members having unexplained wealth beyond their means as public officials. 

Note too that in the end, Najib allowed them to retire "gracefully" without loss of pension rights, gratuities and bonuses. How come no one was charged with "plotting to overthrow a democratically elected PM"? Now, none of them has a bad thing to say about Najib or his government of thieves despite the fact that in reality, they were all sacked at a stroke by Najib, to try and conceal a world-wide scam. This is not the reaction you would expect from men and women of real integrity, is it? Did Najib perhaps do an Erdogan?

When push came to shove, IGP Bakar too must have folded like a pack of cards. He cunningly decided to switch camps and having seen the error of his ways, is backing Najib as though he is the new Messiah! Bakar is still there, strutting about like a comic little Hitler, patiently awaiting the day when he might yet get the better of Najib, whom I suspect knows that there is great difficulty at the moment in identifying an equivalent crook to replace Bakar.

This then is Malaysia today, where corruption has crept into every nook and cranny of the country. There is no public job, position or title that is not for sale and hardly a person who could not be bought by that bandit and serially lying, misappropriating, financially raping, defrauding, looting and plundering Najib, his immediate family members and his government of thieves, and whose name has been linked to at least two murders (Altantuya and Hussain Najadi) and possibly a third, by respectable foreign publications!

It is also too obvious that Ministers and MPs like Rahman Dahlan, Syed Keruak, Shaberry Cheek, Shahrir, Ahmad Mazlan, Hanadsla, Azalina and others including those from the MCA and MIC, have all personally profited handsomely to the tune of several million ringgit each from Najib and his tainted money stolen so brazenly and with no guilty feelings from 1MDB. Integrity and honour no longer exists in the ranks of those elected to serve the People.

What a shameful legacy this Najib will burden us with for generations to come!

LET'S NOT FORGET NAJIB'S MOF RM30 BILLION PEMBINAAN PRIVATE FINANCE INITIATIVE (PPFI) LOAN FROM EPF - INTO WHOSE POCKETS DID THE MONEY REALLY DISAPPEAR TO?




The Universe is aswirl with news of serially lying, misappropriating, defrauding, plundering and looting PM Najib's global record swindle of 1MDB's $46 billion debt and RM30 billion hole in its balance sheet. Not to mention him being linked to two murders - Altantuya (CLICK HERE AND HERE) and Hussein Najadi.

But let us not be totally distracted by that and lose track of the unaccounted for RM28 billion debt racked up by another "project initiative" by Najib doubling up as Finance Minister, at the Ministry of Finance (MoF). Najib's comrade in arms is also there, namely, Secretary General to MoF, Mohammad Irwan Serigar Abdullah. Serigar, who has since its inception in 2009 been a director of the now infamous 1MDB, was recently promoted as its Chairman.

When asked about the fraud and fiasco at 1MDB, a 100% owned subsidiary company of MoF with a paid up capital of RM1 million and which had raised RM46 billion in sovereign guaranteed loans, Serigar maintained that he had not been consulted or called for meetings!!?? What exactly were Serigar's priorities - to focus on Najib's pandas or the peanuts being consumed by monkeys at the national zoo?

I have already written extensively about my suspicions about this RM28 billion PPFI loan from EPF, which has, according to a PAC inquiry, been fully disbursed to Bumiputra contractors. Except, the MOF has classified it all under the Official Secrets Act (OSA) and will not publicly reveal the projects or the names of the contractors! CLICK HERE AND HERE.

More than that, the Malaysian Bumiputra Contractors Association is still clueless about the projects or who were the contractors who were so fortunate as to receive a golden handshake (in Malay, 'durian runtuh') from Najib and Serigar's MoF!

Despite some pointed questions to the MoF by DAP MP Ong Kian Meng and Bizkini, the MoF has been superbly stonewalling from giving clear answers.

At the heart of it all are these serious unanswered questions by the Najib, Serigar and the MoF:

1. Why was a  RM30 billion so-called Private Finance Initiative (PFI) scheme funded by the government borrowing from the EPF and guaranteeing it? PFI projects are meant to be funded by the contractors. Yet, the government borrowed money from EPF and paid the contractors!

2. What exactly was constructed and who were the contractors? If there is nothing fraudulent, why has it all been concealed under the OSA?

2. What benefit did the government receive from leasing back 186 parcels of empty, raw agricultural land, from PPFI? If nothing, then it is an outright scam, a fraud.

3. How does Najib, Serigar and the MOF propose to repay the RM28 billion when it is not included in the government's budget?

And here are some similarities to the 1MDB mega fraud:

1. Billions of ringgit borrowed secretly and disbursed on secret projects and classifying them under the OSA.

2. Raising billions of sovereign debt with no real capital or assets of value. 1MDB's debt:capital ratio was 1:46,000, PPFI > 1:28,000!!

3. Committing the unpardonable financial sin of borrowing money to repay debt interest, and repeatedly rolling over debt.

4. Using the PAC to cover up suspected massive fraud.

5. The involvement of Najib and Serigar. What exactly was Ali Hamsa, the Chief Secretary to the Government, doing while all this was going on?

Just like the 1MDB global fraud, the PPFI RM28 billion "secret projects" disbursements fail the smell test. There is the stink of fraud, misappropriation and looting written all over it!

The Auditor General had better take another look at PPFI's financials before, like the fiasco at 1MDB, the horses bolt off to Kazakhstan or Taiwan!!

THE THREE 1MDB OFFICERS IN THE US DOJ INDICTMENT SHEET & ALL THE PLAYERS IN THE 1MDB RM46 BILLION FRAUD & FIASCO!


In case you were wondering who the 1MDB Officers 1 - 3 mentioned in the US Department of Justice 136 pg. Indictment for the Najib led Kleptocracy are, here it is so there is no doubt:



1MDB Officer 1 - Tan Sri Ismee Ismail, Executive Director until March 2011.


1MDB Officer 2 - Datuk Shahrol Azral Ibrahim Halmi, CEO till 2013.


1MDB Officer 3 - Jasmine Loo Ai Swan (42), General Counsel and Executive Director of Group Strategy. She succeeded Casey Tang Keng Chee (50). A Bank Negara Malaysia warrant of arrest has been issued against both these Malaysian nationals.


It is also now obvious that the audited accounts of 1MDB are not worth the paper they are printed on. In particular, Deloittes (where one of Najib's sons, Nizar, is a partner or director, though not in the audit side) who signed the 2014 audit certificate, should be sued by the government and fined heavily and/or wound up. More than that, it is evident that the 1MDB's 2015 accounts, now delayed since April 2015, will never see the light of day because no auditor worth his salt, will now sign a fraudulent set of numbers where RM30 billion has disappeared for sure, and all the answers have to come from serially lying PM Najib!

Besides these officers, here are the details of all the players involved or associated with 1MDB's FORMER “triple-tier” corporate governance structure, with a Board of Advisors chaired by the prime minister Najib Tun Razak himself in addition to having a Board of Directors overseeing the Senior Management Team. Only a few good men like Azlan and Bakke (and others) resigned on matters of principle and integrity, when they suspected massive fraud was being engineered by none other than their PM, Najib:



Jho Low, the dealmaker
Penang-born Low Taek Jho, more commonly known as Jho Low, is a young businessman in his early 30s living a high-profile life, by his own admission rubbing shoulders with the likes of Paris Hilton and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Interestingly, the son of Larry Low of MWE Holdings fame began forging connections with the wealthy of the world when he went to top UK boarding school Harrow and then Wharton School of Business. There he reportedly became close to scions of wealthy Arab families, a connection which later would seemingly be instrumental in his deals.
It was also during this time that he got to know the prime minister’s stepson Riza Aziz, who was studying at the London School of Economics at the time. This led to Jho Low growing close to Riza’s mother Rosmah Mansor as well, according to a New York Times report.
These connections grew increasingly significant as he began to be involved in 1MDB back in its early days – this goes back to the time when the company was still known as Terengganu Investment Authority (TIA) and controlled by the Terengganu state.
In a previous statement, Jho Low’s representative stated that he was among many parties asked to offer advice during the initial stages of TIA’s life. Jho Low further claimed that he was no longer actively involved in any manner by mid-2009 when the federal government took over TIA and renamed it 1MDB.
However, his involvement may have extended to at least near the end of 2009, according to a series of articles published by Sarawak Report citing leaked documents which appear to be confirmed as genuine.
They alleged that despite having no formal role within 1MDB, Jho Low and his associates were in unusually active roles in setting up 1MDB’s first joint venture with Middle East-based Petrosaudi International – both parties were only officially introduced to each other days before signing the hasty venture.
The deal in itself raised concerns, among others because of the hasty manner in which it was concluded as well as the revelation by Sarawak Report that some US$700 million from the US$1 billion 1MDB committed to the joint venture was transferred into an unrelated bank account under the name of Good Star Ltd at RBS Coutts Bank Ltd, which Sarawak Report alleged is controlled by Jho Low.
As the 1MDB controversy erupted this year Jho Low became a household name among the public, not least because of these Sarawak Report revelations. Sarawak Report later published a photo of Jho Low standing beside the prime minister’s family in what it alleged was a meeting aboard a luxury yacht with other parties.
Tarek Obaid and Prince Turki – the PetroSaudi connection
PetroSaudi International, 1MDB’s first joint-venture partner under what has been revealed as shady circumstances, is an interesting company.
The independent oil and gas company was reportedly incorporated in the Seychelles in 2005 and has offices in Saudi Arabia, UK and Switzerland with projects in Ghana, Indonesia, Venezuela and Tunisia. Previously it was reported to have had a stake in Paraguayan oil company CDS but sold this stake in 2009.
Tarek Essam Ahmad Obaid, co-founder and CEO, is a graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, according to the company’s website.
In turn Tarek is linked to Prince Turki, the seventh son of the late King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, and both were often seen together in Riyadh. Past news reports have quoted Tarek as speaking on behalf of Prince Turki’s company Al-Obayya in 2004.
Tarek is also part of private equity company Genii Capital, where he partners with Renault F1 Team chairman Gerad Lopez among others. Subsequently in May 2010 Tarek joined Team Renault, although later in November that year Tarek relinquished his role as partner in Team Renault, according to Genii Capital in a statement.
Among other things Tarek had also donated US$10 million to Mayo Clinic in 2011, which led to a centre for surgery being named after his parents. In 2011 he credited the Saudi royal family when PetroSaudi generously chartered planes to lift Malaysians out of Egypt as crisis embroiled the nation.
Apart from 1MDB, PetroSaudi had also been involved with UBG Bhd, when in January 2010 it bought stakes linked to then-Sarawak chief minister Abdul Taib Mahmud for RM1.2 billion. Notably Jho Low was a board member of UBG then. PetroSaudi later took the company private.
THE MEN IN CHARGE
Shahrol Azral Ibrahim Halmi
Shahrol Halmi was the first CEO of 1MDB back when it was still TIA and under control of the Terengganu state government. Most of 1MDB’s major deals and borrowings took place during his tenure.
A Stanford University graduate, he formerly spent more than 15 years as a consultant at Accenture, where he worked on various sectors including financial services and oil and gas. His track record indicates an expertise in transformation initiatives.
Under his watch 1MDB issued its very first debt papers for RM5 billion, directly disobeying the board of directors who instructed the exercise to be put on hold. During the PetroSaudi joint venture episode, Shahrol had full knowledge of the US$700 million transfer into the bank account allegedly controlled by Jho Low, according to Sarawak Report.
He also oversaw the contentious decision to convert the joint venture in a loan to PetroSaudi as well as loan further funds later. It was under Shahrol’s watch that most of the questionable trail of power asset acquisitions was undertaken by 1MDB between 2012 and 2013, although considering the final major deal was signed just several months after he resigned as CEO he may have been instrumental in arranging the final purchase too.
He resigned his position as CEO on March 15, 2013 as 1MDB’s debt count stood at RM36 billion as of the 2013 financial year ended March 31, 2013 (FY13). However he remained as 1MDB board member. Shahrol then went on to the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu), where he is presently a director reporting directly to Pemandu chief Idris Jala.
Mohd Hazem Abdul Rahman
Mohd Hazem took over from Shahrol Halmi on March 15, the day the latter resigned, as 1MDB was sitting on about RM36 billion in debt. Prior to that he was chief operating officer of 1MDB since August 2012.
Under his watch 1MDB would further undertake more than RM12 billion in borrowings although for the most part these seem to be related to rolling over existing debt. Among others he oversaw the extinguishing of the controversial Aabar options for billions of ringgit as well as the first redemption of 1MDB’s billions of investments in the Cayman Islands.
A graduate of the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University in the US, Mohd Hazem holds a degree in management, specifically in banking and finance. He joined 1MDB from Sime Darby Motors unit Auto ConneXions Sdn Bhd, where he was managing director.
According to 1MDB, Mohd Hazem has extensive experience in corporate turnovers and strategy, with a total of 17 years in various sectors including power and equities. He resigned on Jan 5, 2015.
Arul Kanda Kandasamy @ Azrul Kanda
Appointed on Jan 5, 2015, Arul Kanda comes from an extensive background in structured finance, corporate finance and restructuring with experience in London, the Middle East and Malaysia.
Arul, a Malaysian national and pointedly described by one federal minister as a Muslim, is described by some as a debt restructuring specialist. Almost immediately after coming in, he announced in February a halt on all new deals and borrowings and rolled out a rationalisation plan for 1MDB which includes monetising its power assets and divesting some equity in its real estate business.
However, Arul also comes with some connection to at least one Middle Eastern player that has been linked to 1MDB. The link raised concern on Arul’s interests when he was appointed to helm 1MDB.
A UK qualified Barrister, with an LLB from the London School of Economics and an LLM from University College London, he was also a former board director at RHB Investment Bank and reportedly at RHB Capital too.
Arul came from Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB) – majority owned by the government of Abu Dhabi, which also controls International Petroleum Investment Co (IPIC) and Aabar, which has business dealings with 1MDB – where he was executive vice-president and head of investment banking. He also formerly worked at Barclays Capital and Credit Agricole and also holds board positions at Global Investment House (Kuwait) and ADCB Macquarie Infrastructure Fund.
Notably ADCB, which bought a 25% stake in RHB Capital in 2008 from the Employees Provident Fund, reportedly named Arul to sit on the company’s board as its representative. ADCB later sold the stake to another Abu Dhabi government investment arm, Aabar Investments PJS.
In turn Aabar, which is controlled by Abu Dhabi’s IPIC, was granted the notorious option to buy up to 49% stake in 1MDB’s power assets in exchange for IPIC’s guarantee of two bonds issued to buy the power assets.
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Lodin Wok Kamaruddin (from Aug 11, 2009)
Chairman of 1MDB board of directors, Lodin Wok Kamaruddin is widely viewed as a loyalist of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak following close professional ties – his career spans defence-related companies and funds.
Lodin is CEO of Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (LTAT) since August 1982 and Boustead Holdings group managing director since 1991. Notably Najib was defence minister during the years 1990-1995 and 1999-2008.
He was appointed to the 1MDB board on Aug 11, 2009, the same day Sime Darby group chief Mohd Bakke Salleh was reappointed to the board before the latter resigned again from the board, allegedly in protest over how the PetroSaudi joint venture deal was conducted by company management.
While this sudden change raised eyebrows at the time, the company stated the intention was to tap into his expertise. As controversy erupted this year following increased media reportage on 1MDB, Lodin has publicly come out to defend the company although some of his statements prove problematic under closer scrutiny.
Ismee Ismail (from March 23, 2009)
A chartered accountant, Ismee Ismail comes from a long corporate background involving companies such as Arab Malaysian Development Bhd, Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd, Danaharta Nasional Bhd and Felda Global Ventures.
Among others Ismee also sits on the board of Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd, its parent BIMB Holdings and Syarikat Takaful Malaysia.
Presently Ismee is group managing director at pilgrimage fund Lembaga Tabung Haji.
Mohd Bakke Salleh (Feb 27 – April 7, 2009; Aug 11 – Oct 19, 2009)
Former 1MDB board chairman and member over two brief tenures, Mohd Bakke Salleh is presently president and group chief executive of conglomerate Sime Darby Bhd. His career has included a spell as group president and CEO at Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd as well as group managing director and CEO at Lembaga Tabung Haji and a stint at Danaharta Nasional Bhd.
He holds an economics degree from the London School of Economics in UK and is also a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and a member of the Malaysian Institute of Accountants.
His second and final departure from the 1MDB board was alleged to have been in direct protest over the PetroSaudi joint venture deal, which was hastily signed in direct disobedience of board instructions to carry out proper due diligence, according to sources. However, Mohd Bakke has declined to speak about his time at 1MDB when speaking to the media.
Azlan Mohd Zainol (Aug 11, 2009 – Jan 11, 2010)
Like Mohd Bakke, Azlan comes from an accounting background. He is also fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and a member of the Malaysian Institute of Accountants.
Azlan is mostly known for his time helming pension fund Employees Provident Fund, where he was CEO between April 2001 and April 2013. His long corporate career had spanned various companies including Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB), RHB Investment Bank and a non-executive directorship at Rashid Hussain Bhd.
Sarawak Report alleged that Azlan also eventually departed following the contentious PetroSaudi joint venture deal, though he left some months after Mohd Bakke.
Ong Gim Huat (from Jan 12, 2010)
A corporate man, Ong comes from a real estate and construction background with over 30 years of experience. Among others he was a former president of the Real Estate and Housing Developers Association (Rehda) and currently chairman of Kwong Wah Yit Poh Press Bhd.
Past news reports, citing records from the Companies Commission of Malaysia, have reported Ong as a business partner of Jho Low’s father as both are shareholders and directors for 30 years of Wonder Bay Sdn Bhd, a Penang-based property development company, since its incorporation in 1995.
Notably Ong has signed off every 1MDB annual report in his capacity as director alongside the respective CEO at the time, according to records.
Christopher Lee Sian Teik (Feb 27, 2009 – March 23, 2009)
A lawyer with over 25 years’ experience, Lee is joint managing director of law firm Christopher & Lee Ong and specialises in capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, and special projects. He was admitted to the Malaysian Bar in 1986.
According to his firm’s website Lee has also advised clients on financing exercises and transactions, both conventional and Islamic, including issuances of sukuk, bonds and debt papers.
His expertise also extends to corporate debt restructuring and over his career he has been involved in negotiating and advising on power purchase agreements and concession agreements, although his time at 1MDB board does not match the time frame of 1MDB’s later power asset purchases.
Ashvin Jethanand Valiram (from Feb 2, 2010)
A director at 1MDB, Ashvin is a luxury goods trader who also specialises in travel-retail. He is the third-generation owner of the Valiram Group, often credited for growing the business into a glamorous luxury niche.
In 1996 he broke a new niche by opening the world’s first retail store at an airport focused on selling fabrics. Today the Valiram Group operates 250 stores in 10 countries, representing 150 brands from Australia, China and Malaysia to Thailand and Russia.
According to the prime minister, Ashvin’s inclusion in the board is due to his entrepreneurial spirit, though the socialite is also often said to be close to the premier’s family. It is unclear how 1MDB benefits from his entrepreneurial spirit.
THE BOARD OF ADVISORS
Nor Mohamed Yakcop
1MDB’s board of advisors, chaired by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, includes a number of familiar as well as new faces. Among them is Nor Mohamed Yakcop, former minister at the Prime Minister’s Department as well as former finance minister II between 2004 and 2009.
Among others Nor Mohamed is also remembered for a 32-year stint at Bank Negara Malaysia and was allegedly involved in a controversial currency speculation scandal involving the central bank in the early 1990s, with losses hitting RM30 billion by some estimates.
Mohd Sidek Hassan
Former chief secretary to the government for six years between September 2006 and June 2012, Mohd Sidek is also chairman of Petronas since July 2012. Interestingly he was born in Pekan, which is the prime minister’s constituency.
Among others Mohd Sidek’s career in public service has included being secretary-general at the Ministry of International Trade and Industry. A controversy some two over years back involved his daughter and son-in-law when the two managed to win most of available feed-in tariff quotas issued by the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water.
However the ministry refuted claims of preferential treatment, stating the bidding was done online and automatically via a first-come, first-served basis.
Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani
A former prime minister of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad is officially special advisor to 1MDB and was appointed following a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between 1MDB and Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) in May 2010.
Sheikh Hamad is also CEO of QIA. Days after the MoU was signed, news reports emerged suggesting that QIA will partner 1MDB in its 486-acre Bandar Malaysia development on the site of a former military air base at Sungai Besi.
1MDB is presently in the process of selling a 60% stake in the Bandar Malaysia project and is mulling bids from two undisclosed bidders.
The company has suggested before that the bidders are foreign entities.
Khaldoon Khalifa Al Mubarak
Another Middle-Easterner on the 1MDB advisory board is Khaldoon Khalifa, who is CEO of Abu Dhabi investment company Mubadala Development Co. Interestingly Khaldoon became chairman of the Manchester City football club in 2009 when the Abu Dhabi United Group took partial control, succeeding former Thai premier Thaksin Shinawatra.
Notably in October 2012 Mubadala signed a deal with 1MDB to work on the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) development, the twin project of Bandar Malaysia development with an estimated gross development value of as high as RM40 billion.
Ali Bin Hamsa and Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah

Ali Hamsa
Ali Hamsa is presently chief secretary to the government while Mohd Irwan is secretary-general to the Ministry of Finance, which is helmed by Prime Minister Najib in his capacity as finance minister.
Ali took over from Mohd Sidek in 2012 and comes with a background in economics, obtaining a Master’s degree from Oklahoma State University, US in 1986 before going on to obtain a PhD in environmental science and economics in 1997.

Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah
Meanwhile, Mohd Irwan also holds a PhD in economics from the International Islamic University in Kuala Lumpur.
Separately he had overseen a secret government fundraising company called Pembinaan PFI Sdn Bhd, which was originally set up as a private finance initiative for public projects but operates in opacity (see Issue 003 of KINIBIZ Magazine).
Chang Zhenming
A former professional Go player, Chang is presently chairman and president of the CITIC Group of China. His professional career had seen decades spent in varying roles across the CITIC Group, which stands for state-owned investment company China International Trust and Investment Corp.
In particular some of his time at CITIC had seen close involvement with the financial markets, specifically in respect of bonds. In the early 1990s he was in charge of fundraising for CITIC via issuing bonds in the international markets, foreign exchange and securities.
Bernard Arnault (no longer on board of advisors)
With a nett worth of US$36 billion as of Nov 30, 2015, Bernard Arnault is the 13th richest man in the world and the top in France by nett worth. He is chairman and chief executive of LVMH Mo√ęt Hennessy Louis Vuitton, considered among the world’s leading taste-makers with an empire spanning 70 brands including Dom Perignon, Bulgari, Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Sephora.
It is unclear why Arnault was included in the board of advisors for 1MDB and when he left – the 1MDB website no longer lists him as a member of the advisory board.
However, he is no stranger to controversy following news reports in the UK over close ties with former British prime minister Tony Blair’s family when the latter was still premier. British media have photographed him going on holidays with Blair’s family and the latter became advisor to LVMH in 2010.
