Hannah Yeoh angry with MACC's justification to clear Najib

I am angry because the government thinks I am stupid enough to believe this kind of lame justification, she says as MACC clears Najib of any wrongdoing over the RM2.6 billion

KUALA LUMPUR: DAP lawmaker Hannah Yeoh today expressed her shock over the manner the RM2.6 billion fund transfer investigation against Prime Minister Najib Razak was declared close by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC).

“Folks, that is how they close a case. Just with one media statement, kes ditutup (case closed),” said the Selangor state assembly speaker in a series of tweets.

She was referring to a MACC statement this evening that said the RM2.6 billion found in Najib's personal account came from donors, and not from 1MDB as claimed by Wall Street Journal and Sarawak Report.

“MACC's investigation reports in relation to the RM2.6 billion have been submitted to the Attorney General's Chambers. Our findings showed that the money that went into Najib's account had come from donors and was not from 1MDB,” MACC said in a statement without divulging the identities of the donors.

With this, the MACC has cleared Najib of any corrupt practices of receiving 1MDB funds.

And this simple way of clearing the whole issue has gotten Yeoh angry.

“This nonsense given by Barisan Nasional is no longer amusing. You burden people with good and service tax (GST) and you expect people to believe you can easily collect RM2 billion donation,” she tweeted.

“Wah, I am really angry. I am angry because the government thinks I am stupid enough to believe this kind of lame justification,” she added.

She said that if Najib could get donors to give him RM2 billion just like that, he should then ask his donors to give him money to make up for the GST which is burdening the people.

She further wondered if the MACC decision would result in more people participating in the Bersih 4.0 rally scheduled for Aug 29 and 30.

Najib has come under tremendous criticism after the WSJ and Sarawak Report revealed in a report last month that US$700 million (RM2.6 billion) of 1MDB fund had been allegedly transferred to Najib's personal account just before the last GE.

Najib had denied using 1MDB fund for personal gain but in recent days, word is slowly leaking from within Najib's camp that the money was actually political funding from overseas donors.

Najib had not openly admitted that but had said he would reveal the identity of Umno's donors if the opposition would do the same for their source of political funding.

Last Wednesday, sacked deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin was caught saying in a leaked video clip that Najib had admitted having the money in his personal account, only saying that they were from the Middle East.

Earlier today, hours before the MACC statement clearing Najib, PKR secretary-general Rafizi Ramli predicted that Putrajaya would come out to explain that the money in Najib's accounts was from donors.

He added this would be part of a “script” by BN’s new communications team to convince the public that there was nothing corrupt about the funds going into Najib’s bank accounts.

The script would also give the impression that the funds did not originate from 1MDB as has been claimed all this while, he added.

Rafizi said BN was likely to say that there was documentary proof that the RM2.6 billion was a personal donation to Najib.

“Based on this proof, the investigation into the RM2.6 billion transfer would find no element of corruption, and the case would be closed,” he said.

He further added that to prepare Malaysians to buy this story, BN was already championing the issue of political donations and daring opposition parties to declare their sources of funding.

“This issue is being brought up to cover up two important questions that Najib has not answered,” Rafizi added.

“The first is, where has RM42 billion that 1MDB borrowed gone to and is it true that the money was taken by individuals close to Najib, such as (businessman) Low Taek Jho?

“Secondly, why was the RM2.6 billion, some of which is allegedly from 1MDB money, funnelled into the prime minister’s personal accounts?,” he asked.

Even the Police report is like WTF~~~
