At least two of Najib’s foot soldiers, Rahman Dahalan and Salleh Said Keruak came out in defense of defenseless Najib. Rahman Dahalan repeated that the claim by WSJ that the RM2.6 billion did not come from the Saudi Royal family but from various companies surrounding 1MDB. He says that the claim by WSJ was an outright lie as Najib has been cleared of from any wrong doings by the famous and newly minted AG Apandi Ali. Ken Brown from WSJ told the Australian ABC that the huge sum of money was from bunch of companies within the armpit of 1MDB and not from the donation from a Saudi Royal family.
WSJ have been writing on Najib’s scandalous issues time and again but if all the claims were untrue one can wonder why no legal actions have been initiated by Najib or the government. Rahman as BN strategic director should be bringing WSJ to court long ago. But it has not been done and they continue with lame defense that no one can believe and have faith on what they say.
There is only one way out for Najib to clear his scandalous image, that is by suing WSJ and bring that media house to court. But this is what Najib is having the apprehension of doing it for reason that is predictable. If Najib is at all decently innocence there is no reason for him to be afraid of taking WSJ to the court.
As long as Najib is not taking WSJ to court it is not unfair to believe that the allegations against Najib as true as Najib is also being investigated in four other countries for the alleged wrong doings by Najib and his cronies seriously suspected of flouting the law of those nations. In Switzerland the AG had found out there were serious movement of RM 4 billion out of 1MDB related companies which ultimately involve Najib personally.
Rahman Dahalan cannot allege WSJ as flouting the code of ethics of journalism and please don’t equate WSJ’s conduct with TV3 or Utusan Malaysia. I hope Rahman will advise Najib that he has no way out but to sue WSJ instantaneously. Najib has to win and be the victor over WSJ in international court, or else Najib has only the exit door for him to go through. He has to quit before the situation becoming worse for the people and nation to bear.
I personally believe in the WSJ report as Najib is cowardly having the apprehension to sue the media house to clear his name once and for all. Right now the general perception internationally is that Najib is politically and morally ruined and unfit to loiter around in Putrajaya any longer.
Najib has to choose one of the two choices he has. He either sues the WSJ and win the case or to resign with dignity and save the country from going for a doom. No one is with him other than Apandi Ali, the IGP and few limited groups within the corridor of power. The limited groups are more of harmful pests than anything else to the country.
