YOURSAY 'By raising the matter in Parliament, Najib has no option but to answer the question whether he was involved in the Scorpene scandal.'
PM told to explain Terasasi's role in Scorpene deal
Slumdog: The only avenue for this matter to progress further is for the opposition to ask PM Najib Razak in Parliament (as he was the former defence minister) what the roles of Terasasi and Abdul Razak Baginda were in connection with the Scorpene deal and whether he plans to charge those involved in selling Defence Ministry confidential documents and official secrets with treason.
By raising the matter in Parliament, Najib has no option but to answer the question and the rakyat can decide from his response whether he is covering up this disgraceful scandal.
View Across the Straits: We are all wasting our time try to ask people in power who are guilty to admit to the crimes committed. This country doesn't have the check and balance, or else Najib would be by now standing in a dock awaiting his fate.
True maturity of this nation's way of governance can only come through a revamp of the system when the opposition has a chance to clean up the 55 years of mess created by Umno-BN.
So I say, Malaysian rakyat, vote them out.
Swipenter: Hong Kong's ICAC (Independent Commission Against Corruption) could be of definite help to probe Terasasi's money laundering/bribe of the 36 million euro (RM142 million) by following the money trail.
If Wanita Umno chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil was found to have nothing to do the Cowgate scandal and also had no knowledge of what was going on in NFC (National Feedlot Corporation), what make us think that MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) or anybody can find the PM has something to do with Terasasi?
Why would Razak Baginda scoot off overseas so fast after being found to have nothing to do with Altantuya Shaariibuu's murder?
To get somewhere, the French court must get Razak Baginda to testify and if necessary, issue a warrant of arrest for him.
Magnus: I agree with Suaram advisor Dr Kua Kia Soong that there is a humongous elephant standing inside the Parliament which every MP and external law enforcement agency can't fail to see. So why are all these people acting blind and playing dumb?
By the way, why does the Income Tax Department fail to investigate all the undeclared income alleged to have been received by those implicated in this disgusting national scandal involving abuse of power, criminal breach of trust, treason, deception, corruption and a clear attempt to pervert the course of justice in a heinous murder case?
By the why, why Bank Negara and/or MACC not able to investigate and plug the hole through which an annual average of US$35 billion of illicit funds (as alleged by Global Financial Integrity) oozes out of the country, all squirreled away somewhere overseas through the crimes of tax evasion, fraud, bribery and money laundering?
If I were Razak Baginda, I would not be able to sleep so easy. I am sure he will pay his just dues in time to come if he was indeed involved in the Altantuya murder or had anything to do in covering it up and preventing justice from being dispensed fairly.
Jean Pierre: I do not think much of the so-called top secret document detailing the minds behind our military. We are not China or India with enemies at our borders.
We don't need a strategic defence analysis, let alone the knowhow. We don't even know what we want. The documents were sold as a way to pay the bribe, that's all.
Cala: What is there for Najib to explain Terasasi's role other than admitting that he was part of it?
Author Barry Wain was not being preposterous in saying that Umno-led BN regime is corrupted to the core. Selling away the country's most sensitive information to a third party is a manifestation of its low moral values.
When people in high places are greedy and unprincipled, cabinet positions too may be given to the highest bidders.
The only good news to the people is - it is a sure sign pointing to the near demise of a regime that loses all legitimacy to rule.
Boonpou: The only way any big and mysterious transactions in Malaysia (past and present) can be properly investigated is when another government comes about.
There is absolutely no way the current regime and its MACC would investigate such cases. We can all question and scream all we want, but it is not going to happen.
As such, regardless of whether Pakatan is also corrupted or not, if you want these big fraudulent cases to be properly investigated, the only way to accomplish it is to vote BN out of Putrajaya.
This should be the mother of all reasons of how you should vote during GE 13. Don't get sidestep by all the sexual and personal allegations made by the BN regime and lately, by RPK (blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin).
If you want corruption to end, vote them out. It is as simple as ABC, or to be exact, ABU (Anything by Umno).
Headhunter: If ever there is a need for RCI (royal commission of inquiry), this must be one.
Selling the country's secrets is a very serious offence that mandate a death sentence or life imprisonment. Many Malaysians, mostly from the opposition, have been imprisoned for much less.
There are traitors who walk the corridor of Putrajaya and among the top brass of our military. They must be charged with treason.
