PM’s son: Attacks on Najib cause nation to suffer

One of the prime minister’s sons, Mohd Nazifuddin Najib, has reportedly expressed dismay over the attacks against his father, Najib Abdul Razak.


He said the personal attacks against Najib would only bring hardship to the people because it would not improve the country, and instead worsen the situation.


In a report in Utusan Malaysia today, he reportedly urged members of the public not to be easily swayed by rumours, and consider its long-term implications on peace and harmony in the country.


“The loss of confidence (in Najib) would cause people to become willing to ‘sacrifice’ the country simply to topple the prime minister.


“This is because foreign investors would be too afraid to invest because they don’t think the country is stable, and this in turn causes the value of our currency to drop and affect the whole economy,” he reportedly said.


Nazifuddin - who is Najib’s second son - was speaking to reporters yesterday during the launch of a café in Kuala Lumpur.


Najib is currently embroiled in the 1MDB scandal, in which he is the chairperson of the state investment company’s advisory board.


Among others, he is accused of receiving some RM2.6 billion in his personal account, with RM42 million supposedly channelled from former 1MDB subsidiary SRC International Sdn Bhd.


Najib had previously denied taking public money for personal use, while 1MDB has denied that its money had gone to Najib’s account.
