TYCOON SYED MOKHTAR IS NO LONGER OUR MAN? NAJIB CLAIMS NST NO LONGER FRIENDLY TO UMNO AFTER 11% STAKE SALE TO LONG-STANDING PARTY CRONY

IT doesn’t matter if Umno still holds a stake in Media Prima Bhd since its main publication, the New Straits Times is no longer friendly to the party, said former prime minister Najib Razak.

“Anyway, Media Prima is not within the effective control of Umno anyway,” he told reporters at Parliament’s lobby.

“So even if we (Umno) have a minority share, it doesn’t matter since NST is no longer friendly to us.”  

The Edge reported yesterday that the political party had divested its 11.09% stake in the media group to tycoon Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary’s DRB Hicom.

However, DRB-Hicom had denied the report.
