BMF to 1MDB

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on February 14, 2017

1. Suddenly UMNO Youth want the BMF scandal of 40 years ago to be subjected to enquiry by a Royal Commission.

2. Most of these UMNO Youths were not born yet or were tiny tots when the BMF scandal made headlines. Obviously some slightly older people have been putting ideas into their heads. They could not know much about BMF. Essentially their resurrection of the BMF scandal is intended to divert attention from the current serious scandal regarding 1MDB and Najib’s 2.6 billion Ringgit in his account.

3. There is no comparison between BMF and my handling of the affair with Najib and his abuse of authority and losses of billions of Ringgit of 1MDB money. Certainly at no time did I have billions of Ringgits in my private account. The losses in the BMF case were due to imprudent management of loans of the BMF. The culprits had been identified and legal action taken by the relevant authorities.

4. The BMF affair started before my time and I ensured that an enquiry be carried out by an investigative body headed by Tan Sri Ahmad Nordin, the Auditor-General at that time.

5. His report was published and available to the public. It was not made into an official secret to hide what it says about me. I am sure the report can be accessed by anyone, including UMNO Youth even now.

6. Then there was a White Paper presented to and debated by Parliament. No one suggested that I should be charged for any crime involving the BMF.

7. Everything about the BMF was out in the open so that the opposition could scrutinise and make allegations against me should there be a case against me. The proceedings are in the Hansard and anyone can have access to it. They are not under the OSA, unlike the reports on the investigation into the 1MDB and Najib.

8. Under him 1MDB borrowed billions of Ringgits at high interest rates and commission. He bought power plants whose license were about to expire at well above market price. Later he sold these power plants to foreign companies at huge losses.

9. The reports on 1MDB by Bank Negara and MACC were dismissed by a newly appointed A.G., who then declared they were official secrets.

10. It is the same with the report by the Auditor-General. It is also declared to be official secret.

11. Putting evidence under the OSA results in the evidence being hidden. Even quoting from it by people who have read it would breach the OSA. Yet the law also says that hiding evidence is a crime. The courts should be asked to determine whether hiding evidence is a lesser crime than quoting from evidence that has been criminally hidden.

12. I will accept a Royal Commission to investigate anything that I did during my term of office.

13. But Najib and the UMNO Youths must also agree on a Royal Commission to investigate the setting up, borrowing and losses suffered by 1MDB. All evidence, including the aforesaid reports must be made available to the Commission.

14. If UMNO Youths cannot agree to an Independent Royal Commission on 1MDB, I will have to assume that Najib is guilty as charged.

15. Justice should not only be done but should be seen clearly to have been done.

LAPORAN POLIS NGO

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on February 12, 2017

1. Saya amat gembira dengan report polis terhadap saya kerana kononnya membuat kenyataan yang tidak berasas berkenaan Forest City di Gelang Patah yang menelan belanja berbillion Ringgit.

2. Walaupun bodoh tetapi laporan polis yang dibuat berjaya menarik perhatian kumpulan yang pekak, buta dan tuli (PBT). Saya akan membuat penjelasan yang lebih panjang dan mempamerkan fakta-fakta berkenaan projek ini apabila saya dihadapkan ke mahkamah.

3. Yang saya hairan ialah kenapa orang PBT ini tidak report kepada polis akan laporan dalam beberapa akhbar oleh Bloomberg, sebuah agensi berita berkenaan ekonomi.

4. Besar kemungkinan puak PBT ini tidak baca, atau kalau baca sekalipun tidak faham. Yang dilapor oleh Bloomberg lebih dari yang saya sebutkan dalam ucapan saya.

5. Sekarang selepas saya jelaskan asas dakwaan saya, buatlah laporan polis terhadap Bloomberg. Tetapi saya yakin mereka tidak berani. Tujuan laporan mereka terhadap saya bukan diasaskan kepada kenyataan saya itu tidak betul. Laporan dibuat untuk menghentikan saya dari bercakap benar. Dalam Malaysia sekarang ini kebenaran amat ditakuti. Pembohongan disanjung tinggi.

6. Saya syorkan NGO-NGO ini membuat lawatan ke Forest City untuk melihat dengan mata kepala sendiri keadaan di Bandaraya berkenaan. Cuba sahkan penduduk dan pembeli bangunan-bangunan di sini terdiri dari orang tempatan, terutama orang Melayu.

7. Sahkan juga bahawa tanah ini disewa dan bukan dimiliki kekal seperti yang tertulis di papan tanda yang didirikan dan siaran kepada bakal pembeli dari Cina.

8. Dahulu, di waktu kita kurang bijak, Singapura telah dijual ke British. Sekarang ini Singapura menjadi negara asing yang tidak mungkin dikembalikan kepada Johor.

9. Penjualan tanah untuk dibangun dan diduduki oleh orang asing selama-lamanya tidak banyak berlainan dengan penjualan Singapura.

10. Malangnya PBT tak mungkin faham implikasi penjualan tanah Johor ini. Jauh sekali dari menyamakannya dengan Singapura.

11. Nasib baik lebih ramai rakyat Johor yang boleh faham tentang masalah penduduk asing yang akan berada di Johor selama-lamanya. Tidak ada mana-mana negara di dunia yang sanggup menerima kemasukan ramai orang asing ke negara mereka.

12. Amerika dengan penduduk seramai 325 juta pun menolak kemasukan orang Mexico dan oleh Trump, orang Islam.

13. Di Palestin, pembinaan bandar-bandar untuk orang Yahudi di tanah milik orang Palestin ditentang oleh mereka. Di Eropah kemasukan pelarian dari Syria dan lain-lain negara Arab dan Afrika dihalang oleh mereka.

14. Jika majoriti rakyat Johor menolak Forest City dengan kemasukan orang asing, pendirian mereka tidak sedikitpun berbeza dari pendirian bangsa-bangsa lain terhadap kemasukan beramai-ramai orang asing untuk tinggal di negara mereka.

15. Sesungguhnya NGO-NGO ini mengkhianati bangsa dan negara kerana menyokong penjualan wilayah di Malaysia kepada orang asing yang akan mendiri bandar-bandar mewah diduduki dan dimiliki selama-lamanya oleh mereka.
