1MDB not over ‘until the fat lady sings’

1MDB not over ‘until the fat lady sings’

No one believes what the AG said about the RM2.6 billion. About 1MDB, many questions remain unanswered.

COMMENT

By Ariff Sabri Mohd Aziz

Many people become angry when we say the RM2.6 billion donation issue is not over. How can we be so presumptuous, these people shoot back, when the highest legal officer of the government, our Attorney-General, has said the case is closed?

There is a simple reason: no one believes what the AG said about the RM2.6 billion.

As for 1MDB, many questions remained unanswered.

Why is no one punished for the fraud, embezzlement and other indeterminate wrongdoings? The transfer of more than USD1 billion into the account of Jho Low, for instance: it there was fraud, it would remain a fraudulent act even after any embezzled money is made good.

Suppose an invalid person who stole coins from a car then returned the money and made good the damage he did. Would he be absolved? Would he have escaped imprisonment? The crimes of breaking in, causing damage to property, and theft would remain. The same, it seems, would apply in the 1MDB case.

The Malaysian public has chosen to not believe that the RM2.6 donation issue is over. They don’t need to hear 1001 lies.

The government’s responses have been haughty belligerence, and insistence that everyone must believe the AG.

You can’t force the rakyat to believe you, can you? What can you do if people prefer to believe a news organisation that has been around for 130 years rather than the conflicting stories from Saudi Arabia? The people who write for WSJ stand by what they write. They are prepared to be proven wrong in court.

This is what the government and in particular, the PM must do. Take legal action against WSJ in a place where the plaintiff’s actions receive more sympathy.
