Just wait and see. I think soon the Swiss Prosecutor will also make another announcement about the 1MDB case.
This second affidavit by the US DOJ (251 pages long) is longer than the 1st affidavit.
The story has just broken yesterday. There will be analysis and comments for the next month at least. This does even more damage to Chief Thief’s reputation than the first affidavit. There is no way Chief Thief is going to the polls this year. No way. It will be suicidal. The GE14 has to be next year.
But next year, other things would have happened.
The Malay economy will get even more worse.
Unemployment among Malay people, especially graduates and job entrants is increasing.
That 4.8% growth or whatever is coming from the Chinese economy.
Chief Thief himself said that exports are surging. It is because of the weak Ringgit. And it is mostly Chinese business.
Other than that the domestic economy is still suffering.
Plus newer, better and bigger Felda and FGV scandals are popping up everyday.
So the longer Chief Thief waits, the more riskier it will be for him.
There is only ONE SOLUTION – ask him to step down and be gone. Even that too may be too late.
Anyway here is a compilation of some headlines about the US Dept of Justice’s 2nd affidavit filed at the US Federal (?) Court in California.
5. DOJ: Jho Low spent US$10m on jewellery for Aussie model, mom https://m.malaysiakini.com/news/385768#.WUMf-4RUzAQ.whatsapp
6. DOJ: US$620m returned ‘donation’ used to buy pink diamond for MO1’s wife http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/385760
Then just this morning I received the following via WhatsApp. Its a Press Release by our Attorney General’s Chambers. I hope this is not a hoax. It does sound like the AG though. It is stupid. Here is their press release. My comments in blue.
ATTORNEY GENERAL MALAYSIA
US DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE FILING OF CIVIL ACTION
The Attorney General’s Chambers of Malaysia (AGC) takes note of the latest civil lawsuits by the United States Department of Justice (DoJ). This second action comes on the anniversary of the first, and appears to be a repeat of it. We would like to express frustration that yet again AGC was not informed or alerted by DoJ of this action.
(My comments : Obviously someone else wrote this statement. It has merely been issued using the AG’s name. I dont recall the AG refuting the first US DOJ filing in July last year. So why is our AG making a rebuttal now for this second filing? It is stupid.
Why would the US DOJ inform the Malaysian AG about a civil suit they are filing in the US Courts against Malaysian individuals? If the Malaysian AG files a civil suit against an American/Japanese/German individual or company here in Malaysia they are not obliged to inform the US/Japanese/German government. The AG should know that. That is why I say this statement was not prepared by the AG. They dont know what they are saying.)
We also note that there has been no evidence from any investigation conducted by any law enforcement agencies in various jurisdictions that shows that money has been misappropriated from 1MDB; and that there have been no criminal charges against any individuals for misappropriation of funds from 1MDB.
(MY comments : Now this is really stupid.
Our very own Bank Negara Malaysia has imposed a hefty fine on Arab Malaysian Bank (for their involvement in 1MDB related “money transfers”).
Singapore has already completely shut down a couple of banks who were involved in this 1MDB scandal !!
Other banks in Singapore have been fined.
Singapore has already convicted five or six people over wrongdoing related to this 1MDB scandal.
They have all been sent to jail.
This is now the second Court filing by the US DOJ over this 1MDB scandal.
So to say that “no evidence from any investigation conducted by any law enforcement agencies in various jurisdictions that shows that money has been misappropriated from 1MDB” is the height of stupidity.
That is why I say this statement was not prepared by the AG. They dont know what they are saying
1MDB is a Malaysian company and has been the subject of multiple investigations within Malaysia, including by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, Auditor General and bi-partisan Public Accounts Committee. After review, we found that that no crime was committed. Presently there is still an ongoing investigation conducted by the Royal Malaysia Police concerning 1MDB.
(My comments : The investigating AG who had prepared an arrest warrant for MOI was fired overnite. The team at the AGs, Police and MACC who were investigating the 1MDB were harrassed, threatened and some were arrested. We have not forgotten. The Auditor General’s Report has been sealed under the OSA. The special Task Force for 1MDB has become dead. The ongoing investigation can keep on going – until TN50.)
We would like to express strong concerns at the insinuations that have been made against the Prime Minister of criminal wrongdoing.
At no point in the civil claims is the Prime Minister named as a defendant or has been alleged to have committed any criminal wrong doing.
(My comments : Folks, this statement was not prepared by the AG. They dont know what they are saying. This paragraph above is an ‘oxy-moronic’ piece of writing. Line 2 contradicts Line 1.
If “At no point in the civil claims is the Prime Minister named as a defendant or has been alleged to have committed any criminal wrong doing” then why are you saying :
“We would like to express strong concerns at the insinuations that have been made against the Prime Minister of criminal wrongdoing”.
It is you who are making the connection !
To date AGC has yet to receive any request from DoJ to obtain any information or evidence. However, we would welcome such a request in line with our commitment to international cooperation and the fight against money laundering.
(My comments : Then why dont you reply the Swiss AG’s request for information? Thats what the Swiss AG said, that Switzerland had requested for cooperation from Malaysia but they have not got any cooperation. Your reply was ‘we have not received any request’.
Ok the reason why the US DOJ has not requested for any information from you is because this part of the crime was committed on US soil. They already have all the relevant information that they need.
Wells Fargo Bank is in the US, not in Kuala Lumpur. They can check from Wells Fargo in the US about the relevant money transfers.
The penthouse was bought in New York, not in Mont Kiara.
The movie was produced in Hollywood by Red Granite, an American registered company. The movie was not made at Khazanah’s movie studios in Gombak or somewhere.
So exactly what information or evidence (this part is a joke??) can you provide the US DOJ?
As I have promised before, AGC will not hesitate to initiate proceedings against the perpetrators of criminal acts provided there is sufficient evidence to do so. Any wrongdoing will be punished and Malaysia will always uphold the rule of law.
TAN SRI DATO’ SRI HAJI MOHAMED APANDI BIN HAJI ALI,
ATTORNEY GENERAL MALAYSIA
16 JUNE 2017
(My comments : Before you can uphold the rule of law, you have to take your finger out of your @ _ _ )
