Najib hit by another bombshell

Government documents shows Najib's hand in RM 1 billion tender award

After having been hit by a Scorpene's "torpedoe", Najib who hasn't even recovered yet is now being hit by another bombshell. PKR's strategy director Rafizi Ramli has today released government documents proving Najib has interfered in the award of the RM1 billion Ampang Line LRT extension project.

It looks like BN has no choice now but to find a a new leader for the impending general election as otherwise Najib will drag the whole BN into a Titanic scale sinking. Don't expect Najib to answer these accusations though - he still hasn't figured out how to cover up for his good friend Razak Baginda and he has a lot to answer for the Malaysian public.

Asia Sentinel: Najib's Scorpene scandal could not have happened without Dr M knowing

The 133 official documents uploaded onto Asia Sentinel are from the Directorate-General of the French National Police and the Judicial Police Directorate’s anti-organized and financial crimes unit. They were presented to a French anti-corruption court in May and June of 2011. Taken together, they present –in French – the clearest picture to date of the two-decade campaign by the French state-owned defense manufacturer DCN and its subsidiaries to sell Scorpene submarines to the Malaysian Ministry of Defense.

Graft allegations might make Najib delay elections forever

If we were even as democratic as Pakistan Najib's life as a PM would have been over. But in Bolehland you can still be accused of corruption and still continue your life as the prime minister. No surprise actually since the government is just as corrupt as he is.

Sabah CM in shocking graft allegation

Millions of Sabahan money channeled to Swiss Bank Account

I wonder why we keep reading about Penang CM on almost every page and every day in The Star but all this while Sabah's CM has been quietly channeling Sabahan money out to a Swiss bank account. It seems our government's media are only interested in Opposition CMs but if you belong to BN it is completely OK to be involved in corruption as you will not get prosecuted and the papers also won't write about you! Now you know why we only read about clean PR politicians but the dirty politicians from BN are never revealed by the BN controlled media.

No respect for MCA from Muhyiddin

Muhyiddin takes MCA for a ride

And we thought only the Chinese dislikes MCA. DPM Muhyiddin also has no respect for them as he changes his mind on Chinese independent schools in Johor. One day he says no, next day he says yes. And MCA (and MIC) follows him around like a goat waiting to be fed scraps.

"Can I have a condo too?"

"Can I go to university too?"

Muhyiddin does a U-turn on MCA

Najib's reputation hits new lows

Malaysia's "reformist" PM seeks to prosecute protesters

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak appears determined to give himself a political black eye.

On June 13, government prosecutors will haul into court 10 leaders of Bersih, a coalition of civil society groups campaigning to clean up the country’s corrupt elections commission. The government is demanding damages for destruction to public property during a clash between Bersih demonstrators and police in Kuala Lumpur on April 28. At least 100,000 people marched for clean elections in the Malaysian capital that day, while tens of thousands more joined protests in 11 other cities across the country and 80 cities around the world.

Whether or not the government wins compensation in court, however, no amount of money will undo the damage it is inflicting upon its own reputation by pursuing the case.

Keenly aware of the escalating problems, Najib has tried to present himself as a reformer. The steps he has taken so far, however, haven’t done much to improve BN’s image as increasingly corrupt, ill-equipped to deal with global economic complexities and out of touch with the aspirations of significant segments of the population.

In 2008, BN was shocked when opposition parties captured five of the country’s 13 states in national elections—the worst showing in the coalition’s history. If voters are more dissatisfied now, they are also more frustrated: few can see how real change can be achieved as long as the BN controls access to the media and elections continue to be riddled with irregularities.

Najib’s attempts at reform “ring hollow when the electoral system remains flawed,” Datuk Ambiga Sreenavasan, Bersih chairperson one of the defendants in the case brought by the government, tells TIME. “The stark reality is that genuine reform will not benefit those in power.”
