Pressure on MACC intensifies as SRC probe continues

YOURSAY | ‘It appears the SRC investigation must not be allowed to take its full course.’

Sudden transfer for MACC prosecutor

Odin Tajué: It is becoming even more clear that The Wall Street Journal's revelation that RM42 million out of the RM50 million transferred from Strategic Resources Company (SRC) International had ended up in PM Najib Razak's personal bank account is veracious.

The key people involved in the probe into the alleged embezzlement have been messed around with and removed; Abdul Gani Patail has been locked out of his office and relieved of his position as attorney-general (AG); SRC managing director Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil and company director Suboh Md Yasin have fled to other countries.

Only Najib is still around. But the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has no bollocks to haul him in for questioning. The so-called investigation is all an effing farce, a bloody irritating charade.

Maplesyrup: It appears that the SRC investigation must not be allowed to take its full course because the fund flow from yonder to you-know-where was a clear shot, unlike the RM2.6 billion ‘donation’.

Actually, if the investigation was given top priority and done without fear or favour, it could have completed by now with the guilty party put behind bars.

Negarawan: The repeated acts of impeding investigations into 1MDB and Najib's personal bank account represent a treachery of the highest order against the interest of the rakyat.

The AG’s Chambers and PM’s Office will be held accountable at the end of the day. There is clear evidence that the highly irregular transfers are motivated by vested interests of the subjects under investigation.

RM2.6billion Duit Haram: This is indeed 'gila' (mad). The mess that the country is experiencing is due to one man, who is bent on holding on to his position.

Truly selfish, he has no qualms in bringing the country down with him. Backed by vultures, he apparently believes that he has the support of the majority.

These supporters must now come to their senses. Place the interest of the country first and save the country going down Greece's way.

Anonymous 1230461438193244: UK’s Financial Times revealed that it has acquired further documents from the auditor-general's interim report.

They confirm the long standing suspicion that 1MDB’s previous auditors KPMG were not satisfied with the story of the so-called Cayman Island fund and were refusing to sign off the 2012-13 accounts until they had more proof.

According to Financial Times , the auditor-general reveals that KPMG were demanding evidence that there was genuine value in the supposed Bridge Partners investment fund, which 1MDB management failed to provide for several months.

Sarawak Report founder Clare Rewcastle Brown sums it all up in one paragraph:

“So, are the auditor-general, Financial Times , KPMG, Bank Negara, former attorney-general, BSI Bank, 1MDB board minutes, PetroSaudi database and just about every other available source of evidence you care to mention telling a pack of lies - or is the liar Arul Kanda and his team at 1MDB?”

NNFC: Malaysians must never ever be intimidated by this nonsense by the powers of this regime. If we allow corrupt practices to happen, then we are equally as guilty.

Apandi denies MACC prosecutor transferred

Odin Tajué: AG Mohd Apandi Ali, when Malaysiakini spoke with you on the telephone to enquire the reason for the transfer of deputy public prosecutor Ahmad Shazalee Abdul Khairi (the DPP who is attached to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commisison's special operations division which investigates the SRC money), you said you had so many officers being transferred, and that you could not identify which one Malaysiakini was talking about.

For one, there must be something terribly wrong somewhere in the administration if you have so many officers being transferred.

Two, how many battalions of staff members do you have that you did not know who Ahmad Shazalee is?

Three, Ahmad Shazalee is a DPP and not an office boy or a gardener for his incoming/returning to your office to be unknown to you.

Negarawan: “I have so many officers being transferred. I can't pinpoint which one,” Apandi said. This sounds more like a statement of guilt.

Quigonbond: The AG does not know who is transferred as if the AG’s Chambers is a transit station and everything is automated.

What an exemplary management to look the other way with little Napoleons skirting around his authority. Worse would be if he is in on it and pretends not to know.

Sometimes I wonder if he knows he's the AG and what responsibility that holds in the administration of justice and how it must be reflected not only through the quality of charging and prosecuting but the very conduct of human capital management, directing investigations and making legal views that are consistent with the best practices of accountability, transparency and humanitarianism.

I'm sure his officers are elated under his inspiring leadership right now.
