Amangate - a slap in Najib's face
COMMENT Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s refusal to disclose the identity of the donor of the S$16 million contraband cash seized at the Hong Kong international airport has only heightened suspicion over the web of deceit and cover-up of high corruption in the corridors of power.
His minister Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz had on Oct 11 denied in a written reply to Parliament that the cash, amounting to RM40 million, was Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman’s money.
Nazri said it was a donation to Sabah Umno, even though the carrier Michael Chia Tien Foh is a well known personal agent and close associate of Musa.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
