Pro-Najib portal: 'Four Corners' of liars, madmen and the senile

Published:  |  Modified:

A portal, which is a staunch defender of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, has rubbished the Australian documentary 'Four Corners' titled 'State of Fear: Murder and Money in Malaysia'.

MYKMU.net claimed that the 44-minute programme featured characters who could be considered mentally unstable, liars, drunks and those who are senile.

The portal also described it as a "short film" and not a documentary because the latter would require evidence and analysis, which are absent in the programme.

"The short film starts with the footage showing the rudeness of (Australian journalist) Linton Besser for ambushing the prime minister's event with the people just to ask him about the investigation into his (bank) account.

"The reporter did not wait for the press conference but stopped the prime minister in his tracks as if they still colonise this country.

"Besser must realise that Najib is the prime minister and not a bar owner in Australia with its lineage of English prisoners. The prime minister of Malaysia is always open to questions during press conferences but not when ambushed in the middle of the road," it added.

As for the Four Corners ' "short film", MyKMU said it was nothing more than a political narrative which compiled the views of certain individuals with an agenda against the prime minister and linked them to issues such as the murder of deputy public prosecutor Kevin Anthony Morais, Ambank founder Hussain Najadi, the money in the prime minister's accounts and the killing of Altantuya Shaariibuu.

The portal also added its own description of the individuals interviewed such as Charles Morais, whom it claimed has "massive debts in US and is willing to say anything for money."

Charles, an Atlanta-based hotelier, is the elder brother of Kevin, who caused a stir with his statutory declaration and claim to have a pen drive with incriminating evidence. He has since disappeared from the media radar.

MyKMU described Sarawak Report founder Claire Rewcastle Brown, who was also interviewed, as someone who has been paid millions of Ringgit by a foreign foundation.

Former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad, according to the portal, was "almost senile" but still wants to topple Najib.

Zaid Ibrahim, on the other hand, was termed as a former supporter of ex-premier Abdullah Ahmad Badawi who was then removed from Umno and urged the Yang di-Pertuan Agong not to appoint Najib as prime minister.

"When such antagonists are included in the short film sponsored by ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), surely we would get a Malaysian political soap opera," it said.

In the documentary aired yesterday, Four Corners laid out what is purported to be details of the prime minister’s personal bank accounts.

The programme said its crew had been shown the bank documents by an unnamed 'high-level source'.
