Response by AG, IGP and MACC to DOJ civil suit is shocking

Response by AG, IGP and MACC to DOJ civil suit is shocking

With the revelation by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) about the civil forfeiture suits against Jho Low and Riza Aziz, the damning evidence should have opened a Pandora’s box that would cause the attorney-general (AG), Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to commence immediate investigations.

Instead, the response by the head of the three branches of our law enforcement offices is shocking to say the least. The AG had the gall to say that there was no misappropriation of 1MDB funds and that Najib Abdul Razak was not fingered in the civil suit. Hence in his intelligent conclusion no further action was necessary.

The IGP showed his alleged incompetence by saying that since it was a civil action to forfeit the asset he would not meddle in the case. And as for the MACC head, his only comment was that they were working with the FBI as required under the UN convention.

In all seriousness, US$3.5 billion of our sovereign wealth fund was misappropriated and here we have three branches of law enforcement displaying a nonchalant attitude as if it was none of their business to investigate under the pretext that it was a civil matter.

Instead of instructing the custodian of law to investigate, the PM deems it fit to be more concerned about the accused being charged with embezzlement and money-laundering. Should he not be more concerned that US$3.5 billion from the 1MDB sovereign wealth fund was being exposed as being misappropriated under his watch?

Quite understandably, the court papers mentioned 36 times an individual with the name of ‘Malaysian Official 1′ who happens to be a relative of Riza Aziz and who had, through a scheme of laundering, transferred a substantial sum of money from the 1MDB funds to his own personal account. And without a shadow of doubt, the Malaysian official one is none other than our PM, Najib.
