Saifuddin: ‘I don’t know how to defend the government anymore’

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 22 ? Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said he left Umno after almost three decades to join PKR, when the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) and the RM2.6 billion “donation” issues left him at a loss for words on how to defend the government.

The former Umno supreme council member said he gave Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak “the benefit of the doubt” over the 1MDB controversy as investigations into the state investment firm were still going on, but he couldn’t remain in Umno after the “sacking and removal” day, which saw Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail removed as deputy prime minister and Attorney-General on July 28.

“By doing those sacking and removal and transferring of people in a single day, I see a transgression or intervention into the whole investigation process,” Saifuddin told Malay Mail Online in an interview.

“My way of saying it after these two things is that – you see I’m a debater. So I believe in argumentation. But after these two incidences, I’m lost – I have lost all argumentation,” said the former deputy higher education minister, referring to the 1MDB and the RM2.6 billion issues.

“I don’t know how to defend the government anymore. I said, I shouldn’t be here anymore,” Saifuddin added.
