Tun Mahathir told the media as he touched down from his overseas trip that he is okay if the police want to arrest him. He says that the police have the right to arrest and question him over his speeches at the Bersih 4 Rally on the 29th and 30th August. By all means Mahathir says arrest him and he is prepared to face the the questioning from the police.
I am with the masses who are quite supportive if Mahathir be arrested as the police claims that they have a lot to question Dr Mahathir over the issue of his participation in the Bersih 4 rally. However if Mahathir is arrested there will be a tendency that the police will be questioned by Mahathir instead of the police questioning him.
I am sure Mahathir will question the police for acting as conduit to defend the indefensible wrong doings of Najib as the person in-charged of 1MDB deals at home and abroad. I am sure Dr Mahathir will have a lot to tell the police that the 1MDB issue has been made to be the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) of Najib.
Dr Mahathir is cocksure that the donation of RM 2.6 billion deposited in Najib's personal account actually originates from 1MDB. Hence he can help the police with certainty where the RM 2.6 billion comes from and how it ends up in Najib personal account. Dr Mahathir can tell the police how a big portion of that ‘donation’ was transferred to a Singapore bank, only to be frozen by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
If the police do not know a lot of things let Dr Mahathir gives the police important inputs for the police to investigate on all the issues levied against Najib the PM.
Arresting Dr Mahathir is a good thing to happen as the police have a lot to know all the goings-on over all issues that the leadership is facing. Mahathir’s arrest will end up in Mahathir doing the questioning on the police instead and Mahathir is in actuality arresting the police for questioning then.
Now the police should answer all the issues surrounding the role of the police in defending the culprit that creates problems not only to Malaysians but also many quarters in the world.
Everywhere in the world, from Switzerland to Singapore and Hong Kong and subsequently crossing the pacific to the US investigations on Najib and his 1MDB is ongoing. So can one imagine the scale of dubious and murky involvements that our PM is involved in.
Hence the police should arrest Dr Mahathir and help him (Mahathir) to get to the bottom of Najib’s scandalous deeds not only to Malaysia but to the world especially the financial and banking system.
