Time for a White Paper on Mega-Scandals
by Joe Fernandez
The total monies deposited in Najib’s personal bank accounts was not RM2.6 billion but RM4 billion or even more.
Nobody is Above The Law, Not Even Prime Minister Najib Razak
Suspended Gelang Patah MP Lim Kit Siang has called on Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to present a White Paper on the RM2.6 billion “donation” scandal before the Special Parliament on the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) on Tuesday and Wednesday. The White Paper “must answer the questions on the billion-ringgit deposits in Najib’s personal bank accounts.”
The Najib Government, he lamented, has a totally perverted sense of national priorities when it holds a two-day special sitting on TPPA but not on Najib’s world-class twin mega scandals or the recalibration of Budget 2016. The coming ‘perfect storm’ with the convergence of a multitude of economy, politics, governance and nation-building in the country is the emerging reality.
“It’s sad that Parliament has again proven its utter irrelevance and impotence with regard to demanding full and satisfactory accountability from Najib on his twin mega scandals,” added Lim who is also DAP Parliamentary Leader. We cannot ignore the fact that these “mega scandals had infamously given Malaysia 3rd place in the world’s ‘worst corruption scandals in 2015′.”
He wonders whether Second Prime Minister Abdul Razak ever imagined that his legacy would be corrupted by his son as the 6th Prime Minister. Lim was commenting on the twin mega scandals constantly spawning new questions. “The latest question to surface in the New Year was whether Najib’s RM2.6 billion ‘donation’ scandal was in fact an even bigger scandal than first reported.”
“The total monies deposited in Najib’s personal bank accounts was not RM2.6 billion — which he has since had admitted — but RM4 billion or even more.”Why is Najib silent on the latest query about his RM2.6 billion “donation” scandal? asked Lim.
UMNO leaders and the PAS President Abdul Hadi Awang may not want answers to these questions, noted Lim, but the people and ordinary members of the various political parties, including three million UMNO members and one million PAS members, want answers from the Prime Minister on the twin mega scandals.
