Liow is right in asking Malaysians not to politicise 1MDB with the purpose of overthrowing the democratically elected government of BN.

"These irresponsible parties have gone to the extent of willing to work with foreign forces to achieve their agenda which is unfortunate"

The whole point is that BN is such a good government that they could find no fault in BN but had to resort to 1MDB to discredit BN?


Liow: Don't try to overthrow Govt by misrepresenting 1MDB

by adrian chanand joseph kaos jr

PETALING JAYA: Stop trying to overthrow a democratically elected government by politicising 1MDB, says Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

The Transport Minister said the Government has taken all necessary action to look into the sovereign fund, and concluded that its troubles were caused by a poor business model, weak management and an over-reliance on leverage.

“The 1MDB issue has been over politicised by irresponsible parties, in their efforts to overthrow a democratically elected government.

“And now, these irresponsible parties have gone to the extent of willing to work with foreign forces to achieve their agenda which is unfortunate,” he said in a statement on Tuesday.

Liow was referring to the recent spate of attacks on 1MDB which cited a civil lawsuit filed by the United States Department of Justice (DoJ).

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan said the DoJ's manner in announcing its lawsuits related to the 1MDB case was “heavy handed”.

“It could be motivated by politics rather than the law. The manner in which the case was announced is unbecoming. The language that was used was heavy handed.

“The case has not been brought to court, yet they make statements that imply certain facts. If it is still being investigated, why do they make conclusions?” he said at a press conference on Tuesday.

The DoJ moved last Thursday to seize US$540mil (RM2.3bil) of assets allegedly belonging to 1MDB.

This time last year, US prosecutors filed civil asset-forfeiture suits against more than US$1bil (RM4.27bil) worth of artworks, real estate and other assets owned by several individuals.

Actually; if you read the 1MDB plans, they planned a MASSIVE IPO that they were "hoping" would help "plug" all the gaps in the finances and rescue their world. All these exposes blocked the IPO plans and basically threw out the truth about Malaysia to the world. If it wasn't done; the IPO would have gone waay south the same way FELDA's IPO went. If you read Najib/Arul's press releases early days; they blamed all these sources for ruining the IPO party. Hence that's why they "claimed" the failure of the IPO resulted in the financial "crisis" (comfortably forgetting all the shit they did/spent the $$$ on).

So yes; there have been some benefits with all the exposes. As I also keluar-ed some time back, I also benefit from the lower currency. Not a happy benefit, mind you; but still...

now you mentioned the IPO. I have to concur on your point on that.

Mind sharing why you said not a happy benefit? you got larger purchase power when you came back.. shall be a good thing.

Lets see if when Najib is no longer prime minister (or any ministerial post), DOJ is going to name him or not.

I'm sure as Prime Minister he enjoys some form of Diplomatic Immunity. If as such, even if they name him, they can't charge him. So just let the show carry on.
Public opinion both abroad and at home is just as damming, irregardless if they name him or not.
Me thinks Najib will never relinquish his post. Probably willing to bring down the nation with him. Otherwise, he'd better be prepared to live his last days in Kazakhstan.

Correct.

They cannot charge any sitting Prime Minister.

However by naming him with another name, it is affecting them even more as they can't evade certain questions.

The bigger question is what is stopping DOJ from naming MO1 as defendant, what is stopping DOJ from filing criminal charges on MO1, what is stopping DOJ from issuing a warrant of arrest for MO1.

DOJ has not done any of the above because MO1 is innocent.

Why don't MO1 Sue DOJ?

Please answer the question.

Don't hide around the bush.
It's been asked to you above.

Again, all talks but no concrete action. If Malaysia government thinks we have been wrongly accused, that we have been slandered, that DoJ is politically motivated without evidence, go lodge a formal complain and demand the US government withdraw the allegations. If US fails to comply sue them! Why did LTL need to talk down on oppositions, politicians and their supporters who are naturally opposing? That is their role because right now it seems the government only complains to Malaysians ... odd don't you think?

The United States' Department of Justice (DOJ) suits related to 1MDB are not aimed at toppling the government of Malaysia, said the US embassy in Kuala Lumpur.

"No, this is not an attempt to topple Malaysia’s government.

"The goal is to recover the assets and return them for the benefit of the citizens of the affected country," an embassy spokesperson told Malaysiakini.

The spokesperson stressed that the DOJ suits were part of an initiative to protect US markets and financial systems from money launderers.

The embassy was responding to Umno information chief Annuar Musa, who claimed on Tuesday that the DOJ suits were a pre-emptive strike ahead of the next general election to change Malaysia's Muslim-led government.

The DOJ filed the third set of civil forfeiture suits involving 1MDB last week, aiming to seize an additional US$540 million in allegedly ill-gotten assets, which brings the total amount sought to US$1.7 billion.

The action is part of its Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative (Kari), which seeks to repatriate funds stolen from affected countries.

Among others, Thursday's filings claim that US$620 million allegedly returned by Malaysian Official 1 (MO1) to a "donor" was instead channelled to Penang-born tycoon Jho Low.

Low then allegedly used these funds to purchase, among others, a US$23.7 million pink diamond necklace for MO1's wife.

While neither MO1 nor his wife were named by the DOJ, Abdul Rahman said the lawsuit had implicated Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's wife Rosmah Mansor.

Abdul Rahman had last year also confirmed that MO1 was Najib.

However, he said the fact that Najib was not named showed the prime minister was not a subject of investigations.

Najib has repeatedly denied abusing public funds for personal gain and attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali has cleared the prime minister of any wrongdoing.

Whereas a law firm representing Rosmah had warned of legal action against those who make unfounded allegations against their client.

Pro-government supporters have accused the opposition of having a hand in the DOJ suits, which the opposition has denied.

If UMNO feels it is discredited, then grow a pair and sue the living daylights out of the DOJ.

Bola kecut ah? No need to cook up tall tales to hide behind the CRIMES that were done.

1MDB does not keep accounting or finance report of where all the money goes?????

All they can come up with is political conspiracy, Dr M, opposition, MO1 is not Najib bla bla...etc...

Because he wants people to think he is not mo1. Their mantra is if it is really najib why can't call him by his name? Betul juga. But if u not technical about it, mo1 is 99.9999999999 percent najib.

Well; IMHO, the IPO was a big bullet dodged, given how bad Felda turned out; and is continuing to be...

Not a happy benefit as it only benefits Malaysians whom earn overseas, which I'm sure the majority of Malaysians don't. So; it's sad for the majority for sure...
