G'kan Youth to PM: Prove 'nothing 2 hide' with facts

The prime minister has been urged to prove its case with facts and figures, as the public has lost confidence in denials over the various allegations.

Posting on his blog today, Gerakan deputy Youth chief Andy Yong wrote, "Yes, if there is really '#nothingtohide' or political sabotage, prove it!

"By now most people (especially from the urban areas) are sceptical about Prime Minister Najib Razak and the 1MDB crisis."

Yong said the public would not trust any outcome from present investigations the government purports to be conducting over the debt-ridden Finance Ministry investment firm.

"Press releases explained by 1MDB, the Prime Minister's Office or others will be futile," he added.

"Unless facts and figures can clearly show where has the siphoned monies (as alleged by opposition MPs Tony Pua or Rafizi Ramli) gone to or a truly independent commission is set up to investigate, nothing will change people’s perception/belief," said Yong.

Yesterday the embattled 1MDB, which Najib has been struggling to defend in the face of countless exposes, received a bombshell when Wall Street Journal ( WSJ ) alleged that funds from the investment firm had landed in the PM's private accounts .

Najib today said he may sue the leading US financial daily over the allegations.

WSJ however is standing by its report sayinig their investigations are based on Malaysian government documents they had sighted.

'Charge the idiots'

Yong urged the PM to be transparent, otherwise the opposition and his rival former PM Dr Mahathir Mohamad would likely "spin and twist" the information.

"High time to be transparent if there is nothing to hide. Then arrest and charge all those idiots (responsible)," he said.

He said this also applied to the Mara scandal involving property purchases in Melbourne.

"Fear of no one, be it the warlords or little Napoleons. Honesty and integrity is still the best policy, for the people and country.

"Otherwise an uphill battle for PM," he said.
