APANDI’S APPREHENSION

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on June 19, 2017

1. The A.G., Tan Sri Apandi Ali is frustrated at not being informed by the US Department of Justice of its latest civil lawsuits against 1MDB that appear to be a “repeat” of last year’s suits.

2. He expresses strong concerns at the insinuations that have been made against the Prime Minister (Dato Seri Najib Razak) of criminal wrongdoings.

3. Why the A.G. thinks he should be informed before the statements are made by the Dept of Justice of America is a mystery. There may be some understanding about cooperation between the two countries when carrying out investigations on international crimes. But the A.G. is not known for cooperating on 1MDB investigations with foreign counterparts. The Swiss Attorney General has said this clearly. He stated “despite repeatedly saying it (the Malaysian A.G’s Dept) will cooperate with any foreign agencies investigating the 1MDB scandal, (it) refused to reply to the Swiss Attorney General’s office request for detailed information on the issue”.

4. There was no agreement about informing the Malaysian A.G. on crimes committed in the U.S. or anywhere. The money laundering was through U.S. banks, the purchases of property with allegedly stolen money were in the U.S. and some twenty other criminal acts were all committed in the U.S. and are U.S. affairs. Whether the criminals are Malaysian or not is irrelevant. Is the Malaysian A.G. expecting to intervene in the release of the 250 page statement. Is he expecting to get the Department of Justice of the U.S. to declare that the statements are official secrets, to be hidden from the public? Does he expect the Dept of Justice to declare that there have been no wrongdoings based on the statements? Does he expect the DoJ to ask “Malaysian Official 1” for confirmation that he was not involved in any wrongdoings. Does he expect the Department of Justice of the U.S. to close the case after the alleged criminal has denied he had committed any wrongdoings?

5. He, Apandi, can do this in Malaysia. He can ignore the laws of Malaysia. He can stop the police from further investigations. He can tell lies about the contents of the report made by Malaysian institutions and agencies. But he cannot expect the United States of America to collaborate in his own wrongdoings, including hiding evidence. Certainly Malaysian jurisdiction does not include the U.S.

6. This latest report, all 250 pages of it, is not a repeat of the first statements. It is perhaps the most comprehensive report resulting from months of thorough investigations by experts. It is devastating in exposing the details, including the conversations between the parties and the banks involved, the account numbers, the actual dates when large sums of money was diverted from the so-called 1MDB joint venture with Petro Saudi to the fraudulent companies, to banks and finally into the account of Malaysian Official 1 in Ambank Malaysia. Reference is also made to the wife of Malaysian Official 1 receiving diamonds and jewellery worth hundreds of million Ringgit. Since Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department and BN Stategic Communications Director, Rahman Dahlan has identified Malaysia Official 1 as Najib, denial by the wife is about as good as the denial by Najib.

7. The statement insists and proves that the USD681 million and various other sums which were transferred to the account of Malaysian Official 1 came from 1MDB.

8. The amount of money from 1MDB which was stolen is mind-boggling. Even in USD they run into billions. The purchases include million-dollar properties, a jet plane, a huge luxury yacht, numerous diamonds each worth tens of millions of USD, setting up a film company and the production of films costing hundreds of millions of ringgit.

9. Then there is the life-style of Jho Low and Reza Aziz together with many 1MDB officials. Huge sums were lost in gambling at casinos in Las Vegas, flying all over the world in private jets, bought with stolen money or rented, sailings in luxury yachts etc.

10. These are serious and massive misuse and loss of money borrowed by 1MDB to invest as sovereign wealth.

11. Truly reading the statements by the Department Of Justice is hair-raising. Nothing on this scale had ever happened in Malaysia. Indeed even the officials of the Department of Justice of the United States were flabbergasted at the scale of money laundering, the greed and the robberies which had taken place. They believe this is the biggest case of money laundering that they have ever come across.

12. Yet in Malaysia, the A.G. and the IGP blatantly declare that no wrongdoings have been done to require investigations and criminal charges to be made. While being quick to set up “independent” commissions to investigate alleged crime committed 40 years ago because of a request by a party member, serious allegations by a justice department of the United Stated are simply brushed off. The A.G.’s sense of self importance is laughable.

13. Truly the rule of law no longer operates in Malaysia. Millions of Malaysians may not know or appreciate what has happened. But whether they know or not they will have to pay a very high price in the future as a result of the massive robbery perpetrated by the leaders they trusted to rule this country.

14. What has happened is shameful. Reading the report by the Dept of Justice of the U.S. about the cheating, the blatant disregard for the laws of the country, the collusion by highly placed leaders, the greed make one want to hide in shame at being a Malaysia.

KOS MARUAH BANGSA

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on June 15, 2017

1. Bangsa yang tidak hargai maruah bangsa tidak akan dihormati oleh masyarakat dunia. Lebih dari itu bangsa itu tidak akan berjaya, akan dihina dan dipermain oleh bangsa-bangsa lain di dunia.

2. Kita berjuang untuk dapat kemerdekaan kerana hasrat menebus maruah, dan menebus kuasa yang boleh menentukan maruah kita terpelihara.

3. Sebenarnya jalan yang termudah dan tidak ada kos ialah dengan menerima penjajahan dan menjadi hamba kepada orang lain. Tetapi banyak negara yang penduduknya sanggup bermati-matian untuk mencapai kemerdekaan, menebus maruah.

4. Kita di Malaysia tidak perang walaupun terpaksa melawan pengganas yang ingin mendiri pemerintahan komunis di Semenanjung Tanah Melayu. Kita menang dan kita dapat memerintah negara kita. Kita pilih demokrasi sebagai cara untuk memulih maruah kita. Saya fikir buat beberapa dekad kita berjaya. Nama Malaysia terserlah dikenali di dunia dan dihormati.

5. Walaupun demikian itu belum mencukupi. Kita ingin menjadi negara maju menjelang 2020. Untuk ini kita bukan sahaja perlu tingkatkan pendapatan kita. Kita perlu miliki kebolehan dalam pelbagai bidang yang terdapat dalam negara maju. Di antaranya ialah bidang industri. Belum ada negara pertanian atau negara yang kaya dengan sumber alam yang ditakrif sebagai negara maju.

6. Kita pilih industri kereta bermotor sebagai catalyst (umpan) untuk tingkatkan kebolehan dan kemajuan kita dalam industri pembuatan. Industri kereta memerlukan komponen engineering sebanyak 4000. Sedikit demi sedikit kita akan menguasai bidang industri pembuatan kerana membekal komponen.

7. Dengan menjual Proton kita mengaku kita gagal dan kemajuan ke arah menjadi Malaysia sebagai negara maju terencat.

8. Ya. Maruah mempunyai kos. Kita mampu jika Kerajaan tidak menggunakan cukai ke atas rakyat untuk membeli sokongan melalui rasuah. Duit sebanyak 1.7 billion Ringgit yang kononnya diberi kepada Proton tidak sampai kepada Proton, setakat yang dapat diketahui.

9. Penjualan Proton dipaksa kerana dendam kesumat. Maruah tidak penting. Membalas dendam lebih penting.

10. Jika diteliti keuntungan perniagaan Malaysia hari ini, cukai yang dikutip tetap lebih tinggi dari zaman Proton laris dijual. Tetapi hutang Kerajaan membukit. Di mana pergi dana Kerajaan ini. Apakah ia telah masuk poket orang itu dan orang ini?

MELAWAT GEELY

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on June 06, 2017

1. Saya mengaku saya lawat Geely di negara China. Saya juga melawat Volvo di Sweden, Jaguar di Britain, Nissan dan Toyota di Jepun dan Volkswagen di Jerman.

2. Saya melawat banyak syarikat automotif di dunia untuk menjual Syarikat Proton. Tetapi saya gagal. Ternampak orang lain lebih berjaya, Syabas dan tahniah, saya ucapkan kepada mereka.

3. Mungkin saya gagal kerana bercakap berkenaan pembelian enjin dari Geely. Geely memiliki Volvo dan saya dapati enjin design Volvo cukup baik. Proton tidak ada enjin yang boleh diterima oleh Eropah. Jika dipasang enjin Geely/Volvo mungkin kita akan menepati spec Euro 6. Dahulu pasaran luar yang terbesar bagi Proton ialah Britain. Sekarang kita tak dapat jual barang sebiji pun kereta Proton di Britain dan di Eropah kerana tidak menepati Euro 5.

4. Saya cuba upgrade enjin Proton. Tetapi Proton tolak. Saya juga buat pick-up truck. Proton bukan sahaja tolak, tetapi tidak bersetuju jual 1000 Proton Preve yang pembeli sanggup mengalih dari sedan kepada pick-up.

5. Oleh kerana Honda tidak benar Perdana dengan enjin Accord dieksport, usaha dibuat untuk pasang enjin Campro Proton 1600cc dengan turbo charger yang mempunyai kuasa sama dengan Perdana 2000cc. Kereta ini didapati sama kuat dengan Perdana 2000cc dan mampu naik Genting Highlands tanpa sedikit pun masalah. Lagipun kos enjin Proton Campro RM8,000 lebih murah. Upgrade kepada 2400cc pun boleh. Tetapi Proton tolak.

6. Untuk cash-flow Proton perlu jual lebih dari 8000 biji tiap bulan. Tetapi Proton menjual kurang dari 8000 sebulan. Tidak dapat pendapatan yang cukup untuk bayar vendors dan overhead.

7. Vendors tidak membekal parts kerana tidak dibayar. Kereta tak dapat dipasang kerana tak cukup komponen. Keluaran rendah dari permintaan. Penjualan tidak dapat ditingkatkan. Demand ada. Bekalan kurang. Proton rugi.

8. Sejak saya tinggal Proton, pegawai dan kakitangan Proton tidak dibenar bercakap dengan saya, jauh sekali bertemu.

9. Ramai pembekal berjumpa saya untuk saya tolong dapat duit yang dihutang oleh Proton. Tetapi saya tidak boleh buat apa-apa.

10. Sebenarnya kereta Proton tidak kurang baiknya dari kereta import yang sama harganya. Tingkap automatik berjalan baik. Masalah ini diatasi 10 tahun dahulu tetapi masih disebut. Ramai yang membeli kereta Proton puas hati. Yang tidak puas hati tidak mengguna Proton, tidak tahu kualiti Proton. Mereka masih percaya cermin tingkap tidak naik.

11. Saya masih ingat zaman kereta Jepun dijadi objek ketawa kerana kononnya jika cat dikikis akan terlihat label Milo. Industri otomotif Jepun dan Korea berjaya kerana Kerajaan mereka tidak benar kereta asing diimport sehinggalah kualiti kereta mereka sudah boleh bersaing dengan kereta import. Sehingga kini pun tak banyak kereta buatan asing di negara mereka.

12. Kita terbuka. Siapa sahaja boleh pasar kereta mereka di Malaysia. Kereta kita tidak boleh masuk negara mereka kerana berbagai sebab. Dan kita akur.

13. Tak usahlah pertahan bahawa kita masih ada kereta nasional. Kereta milik orang lain, dikeluar dan dijayakan oleh orang lain, tidak boleh diiktiraf sebagai nasional. Apakah dengan pegangan melebihi 0.1% maka pihak yang memiliki 49.9% tidak punyai apa-apa kuasa langsung.

14. Ya. Memang terdapat kos yang tinggi mempertahan maruah. Lebih mudah jual sahajalah maruah.

1MDB WITHIN AND OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on June 02, 2017

1. In Singapore the Straits Times reports that MAS (Monetary Authority of Singapore) slaps fines on UOB and Credit Suisse for 1MDB related transactions.

2. MAS said it completed its two-year review of banks involved in 1MDB – related transactions.

3. Previous to this, two banks were shut down and seven people were arrested, fined and jailed for involvement in criminal acts related to 1MDB.

4. In America, the Department of Justice issued a 132-page statement regarding money laundering of 1MDB money done by Riza Aziz and Jho Low. The department stated that 3.5 billion dollars of 1MDB money was involved and 1 billion US of property, paintings and receipts from a film produced with the stolen money have been identified and frozen.

5. The Attorney General of Switzerland had investigated illegal acts involving 1MDB money and requested the cooperation of the Malaysian Attorney General to progress the investigations. The Malaysian Attorney General agreed to cooperate but subsequently refused.

6. Media reports throughout the world made it clear that stealing on a massive scale was done by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, referred to as Malaysian Official 1 in the Department of Justice report.

7. The reports were defamatory and if not true should have been sued by the Malaysian Prime Minister. But no summons have been made by the Prime Minister in any jurisdiction.

8. But at home all that happens is that the Attorney General simply declared that the Prime Minister has not committed any wrongdoings. This was corroborated by the Prime Minister.

9. The Attorney General then ordered that no more investigations on 1MDB should be carried out. Although he later said that he did not say this, the fact is that the Attorney General has not requested the Police, or the MACC or any other body to investigate 1MDB. Instead all the reports mentioned above were put under the Official Secrets Act. Access to the reports is now denied to everyone including Government agencies and institutions.

10. But we now hear fabulous reports by the MACC about people being caught with huge sums of money obtained corruptly. There seems to be a drive to clean up the country of corruption. This is great.

11. But no investigation, no media report is made of the 2.6 billion Ringgit which got into Najib’s private account. Is it because MACC believes the stories told about this money, which include;

a. Statement by Nazri Aziz on 11th Aug 2015 that “the money was a donation from a friendly country to help UMNO win the 13 General Election”.

b. Ahmad Maslan, on 30th July 2015 said, “Not true. There was no flow of funds in the personal accounts of the Prime Minister”.

c. Najib himself on 25th Jan 2016, “It is true that RM42 million went into my account, but I do not know who put it in”.

d. Najib, on 4th July 2015 stated, “I deny receiving any money in my account”.

e. Aziz Kaprawi, commenting on the allegation on 20th Aug 2015, stated “The donation was meant to help UMNO against DAP which is supported by the Jews”.

12. In the face of all these allegations, reports, statements and worldwide condemnations, shouldn’t the Attorney General open again the police investigations on the shenanigans involved in the management of 1MDB money and remove the reports by Bank Negara, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and the Auditor General, from the Official Secrets Act.

13. It is well-known that criminal acts in the Government do not constitute official secrets. In fact it is the duty of everyone in the Government or outside the Government to report such crimes.

14. It is absurd if the Malaysian Government insists there is nothing wrong with 1MDB when other countries are arresting people, closing banks and declaring that massive money laundering is done involving 1MDB money.

15. If really there has been no wrongdoings then the Attorney General must show proof that the money is all there, safe and sound.

LEE KIM YEW

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on May 31, 2017

1. A personal letter to his friends by Tan Sri Dato Seri Paduka Lee Kim Yew has gone viral.

2. It is a sad story; a story of the depths to which the Government of Malaysia, it’s Prime Minister and civil servants have sunk. It is about daylight robbery in which tax is levied on money without legitimate reason, in which a willingness to pay the tax was basically rejected after many negotiations in which LHDN (Inland Revenue Board) has agreed on the terms but subsequently reneged on it’s agreements, in which money earned through legitimate business in the savings of the victim was labelled as money obtained through criminal acts and the victim is to be charged under AMLA, Anti Money Laundering Act for trying to launder money. Under AMLA, the victim can be arrested, detained and charged in a court of law. In the meantime the savings, all RM126 million would have been seized by LHDN.

3. This money will no doubt become a part of Government revenue and will be spent by the Government. If later it is found that the victim had not done any money laundering and the money should be returned, the Government will have used all this money for free while the victim would lose earning on fixed deposit. The Government will of course not pay any interest on the money it detained. Recovery would take years.

4. There are very many instances where wrongful taxes are levied and threats of black listing or seizure of passports are made. We read about companies and individuals being asked to pay back – taxes in the tens and even hundreds of millions. There did not seem to be documentary proofs of the amount of taxes owed. But nevertheless they are harassed into admitting and paying. It seems to be a way for Najib’s Government to raise funds and to prevent the opposition parties from getting funding for the election.

5. But with regard to the RM2.6 billion in Najib’s account, no investigations are made as to money laundering being done by him. Yet the Dept of Justice of America has stated clearly that the money was stolen from 1MDB. Claiming that it is a gift from the Arabs is clearly an attempt to legitimise the source i.e. Najib should not be charged with money laundering.

6. The A.G. acting as judge as well as Public Prosecutor has passed judgement on what is believed to be criminal reports involving 1MDB and the money in Najib’s personal private accounts. He declared there is no evidence of wrongdoings by Najib. And then the A.G. placed the reports under the Official Secrets Act. Now not only can the public have no access to the reports but may not quote from the reports even if they have read them without risking being charged under the OSA.

7. Usually it is the people who try to flout the law. Now we see in Malaysia the Government and in particular the Prime Minister blatantly flouting the law.

8. When the custodians of the law flouts the law, the people can do nothing. Reports against the Government could just be dismissed. The courts will not hear the charges. There will be no judgements. The criminals will remain free to commit more crimes.

9. Some people say I destroyed democracy. They must be glad of Najib’s restoration of democracy.

10. Quo Vadis Malaysia.

SAYANG BANGSA DAN NEGARA

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on May 29, 2017

1. Saya membesar di zaman perjuangan melawan Malayan Union dan membebas negara dari penjajahan British.

2. Diwaktu itu semangat kebangsaan sahaja yang mendorong saya dan kawan-kawan bergerak dan berkorban duit sendiri yang sedikit bagi menjayakan perjuangan. Tidak ada harapan untuk mendapat apa-apa balasan selain dari tebusan maruah bangsa.

3. Hari ini orang Melayu sudah banyak berubah. Bagi ramai dari kita, sudah tidak ada lagi kesayangan kepada bangsa dan negara. Semangat kebangsaan dicemuh sebagai perkauman – racist. Kita malu jika bersemangat Melayu.

4. Sekarang ini ramai yang tidak boleh menerima bahawa seseorang boleh sayang kepada bangsa dan negara sehingga sanggup korban keselesaan hidup diri sendiri.

5. Sesungguhnya saya amat sedih akan kehilangan semangat kebangsaan di kalangan orang Melayu, tua dan muda. Jika tidak diupah dengan duit, pangkat atau jawatan, kontrak atau sebagainya biarlah negara hancur, tidak ada apa-apa yang sanggup dibuat untuk menyelamatnya. Jauh sekali dari menghadapi sedikit risiko.

6. Apabila budaya ini mengganti semangat kebangsaan alamatnya ialah bangsa ini akan gagal dan akan hilang dari muka bumi ini.

7. Dalam sejarah manusia banyak sudah bangsa-bangsa yang sudah tidak ada lagi. Ada yang hanya tercatit dalam buku sejarah. Ada yang hilang sama sekali.

8. Apakah buku sejarah di zaman akan datang akan tertulis didalamnya, “Maka di zaman dahulu terdapat satu bangsa yang dikenali sebagai Melayu, yang sudah pun hilang, kerana semangat bangsa luput diganti dengan ketamakan nafsu”.

9. Wallahu A’lam.

PROTON

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on May 25, 2017

1. Proton has been sold. It has been sold to foreigners.

2. They say Proton is my brainchild. Now the child of my brain has been sold.

3. Yes. I am sad. I can cry. But the deed is done. Proton can no longer be national. No national car now. We Malaysians are glad to be rid of this pesky car. I am sure Proton will do well. It will be a commercial success. It will be sold all over the world. The Proton name will be everywhere.

4. It will be like Singapore. Malaysians are proud of this great city-state. If it had not been sold it would be, perhaps, as well developed as Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis. Then we cannot be proud of Singapore.

5. Now we can be proud of Proton. With money and superior technology it will compete with Rolls Royce and Bentley.

6. But I cannot be proud of its success. I cannot be proud of the success of something that does not belong to me or my country. Maybe other Malaysians will, but not me. Come to think of it, if our country is sold to others, to the very rich people of other countries, I am sure our country will become well developed too. It can even be a fully developed country – exceeding the expectations of Vision 2020.

7. It will be a great country with super highways, high-speed rail (HSR), gleaming skyscrapers, shining new towns, beautifully landscaped and lighted. But I can’t be proud! Can I be proud to be living on the fringes of this great country so well developed by the buyers.

8. I will die soon. I am already beyond average age. And as I slip into my final years, or month or days, I will watch as our beloved country is sold to foreigners to settle the trillion Ringgits that we owe. We will have to sell more and more of our country.

9. What are our assets? Our land of course!! That was what we did in the past. We sold chunks of our country. We lost the land we sold. That is what we are doing now. And that will be what we will have to do – or forfeit our country; like we forfeit Proton.

10. Proton the child of my brain has been sold. It is probably the beginning of the great sell-out. The process is inexorable. No other way can we earn the billions to pay our debts. The only way is to sell our assets. And eventually we will lose our country, a great country no doubt, but owned by others.

11. I am a sissy. I cry even if Malaysians are dry-eyed. My child is lost. And soon my country.

12. Please excuse me.

HOW NAJIB PLANS TO WIN

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on May 24, 2017

1. Najib is fully aware of the dire consequences to him if he loses. He will therefore leave no stone unturned in his effort to get the votes for the 14th General Election. He knows the possibility of losing even in his constituency of Pekan. In 1999 he won only by 241 votes and that also by hijacking votes of soldiers encamped in other constituencies.

2. For some time now he is striving to starve the opposition of funds.

3. Elections are costly. Posters, flags and buntings need a lot of money. Literally hundreds of thousands of these have to be produced. They will cost millions. The workers must be paid allowances, fed with nasi lemak and bottled drinks. There will be tens of thousands of them. At 2 bottles a day, 30,000 to 40,000 of bottle will be drunk.

4. Then the vehicles have to be rented or borrowed. Fuel would have to be paid for.

5. Rallies and ceramahs cost money. Thousands will attend and some drinking water would be needed. Tents and stages and public address systems will have to be rented.

6. All these need millions. If you do not have millions you cannot influence the people. Najib has billions. He is ensuring the opposition receive no donations.

7. How?

8. By imposing taxes on any money owned by even the relatively rich. And so:

9. Money more than RM 40,000 taken out from the bank will be asked to give details as to how the money is to be spent. Any hint that the money is to be donated to Opposition parties will meet obstacles to withdrawals, and harassments by income tax people.

10. Any borrowing for this purpose will not be approved.

11. The LHDN will demand for payment of back taxes amounting sometimes to hundreds of millions. If disputed the tax payer must pay first or be black listed. He may even be raided, records and passports seized.

12. If the court finds there is no justification, it would take years before the money is returned.

13. And now the AMLA (Anti Money Laundering Act) is used. Never mind if there is no evidence. But if LHDN or some government agencies declare that a person with money in a bank is suspected of money laundering then the money would be frozen. The process of proving there was no money laundering would take years. During that time the money cannot be accessed by the owner. No contribution to the opposition would be possible.

14. Of course money in the account of the Prime Minister and certain Government members would not be frozen in Malaysia. They will not be accused of money laundering. They will be free to give the money to BN parties during election.

15. You can lodge a police report. You risk being questioned and detained. You may be charged with sabotage of the economy, or of being a terrorist.

16. The courts may throw out the case. But that would take years. You will suffer all kinds of harassments, made bankrupt, deprived of your passport etc. During appeals to the Appeal Court and then the Federal Court, the harassment of the victim will go on. This is meant to deter others from attempting to support the opposition.

17. With Pakatan Harapan financially paralysed Najib expects to win based on his enormous financial strength and the willingness of the administrative officers to commit wrongdoings if ordered to.

18. I have been accused of having destroyed democracy during my tenure. Since democracy has been destroyed already, the only thing that is being done by Najib must constitute kleptocracy.

PENYOKONG SAYA

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on May 22, 2017

1. Terdapat ramai yang mendakwa saya sokong mereka. Nama saya diguna untuk memberi kekuatan kepada apa yang hendak dilakukan oleh mereka. Ini termasuk kempen untuk menggagalkan usaha saya untuk mengalahkan Kerajaan pimpinan Dato Seri Najib.

2. Tindakan mereka secara langsung atau tidak langsung akan memesongkan tumpuan ahli Parti Peribumi Bersatu Malaysia daripada menjatuhkan Najib kepada masalah buatan mereka. Kononnya ketua bahagian yang diberi watikah tidak baik, tidak mendapat sokongan ahli parti dan rakyat. Kononnya ini semua disebabkan ada pemimpin tertentu.

3. Sekarang ia sudah naik ke tahap menolak kepimpinan tertinggi parti. Kononnya Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin patut disingkir sebagai presiden parti. Kononnya dia mengguna saya untuk kepentingan dirinya. Kononnya dia ingin dapat jawatan tertentu baginya.

4. Kita semua tahu bahawa amatlah sukar untuk memujuk pemimpin UMNO, terutama yang memegang jawatan dalam Kerajaan, menjadi Menteri terutamanya meninggalkan UMNO. Kalau meninggalkan pun atau menjadi bekas menteri, tidak sanggup mereka menyertai gerakan melawan UMNO. Sudah tentu mereka tidak berani mendekat diri dengan parti seperti PPBM yang secara lantang mendesak supaya Najib disingkir.

5. Tetapi Muhyiddin memegang jawatan Timbalan Perdana Menteri kerana menjadi Timbalan Presiden UMNO. Jika Najib turun kerana apa-apa sebab Muhyiddinlah yang akan jadi Perdana Menteri.

6. Baginya dan bagi Shafie Apdal membenar diri disingkir dari jawatan-jawatan menjadi korban yang amat besar. Umum tahu yang Muhyiddin mengkritik Najib semasa masih menjadi Timbalan Perdana Menteri. Akhirnya dia disingkir.

7. Setelah disingkir, tidak seperti orang lain yang kehilangan jawatan, Muhyiddin tidak jauhkan diri dari saya. Sebaliknya beliau bersedia untuk bersama menubuh Parti Pribumi Bersatu dan menjadi Presidennya. Beliau menerima cadangan saya supaya saya menjadi Pengerusi Parti, kedudukan yang dipandang lebih tinggi darinya.

8. Banyaklah kerja yang dibuat oleh beliau untuk menjayakan Parti Pribumi Bersatu, jauh lebih dari orang yang bercadang menyingkirnya.

9. Jika hari ini ia disingkir, parti akan berpecah kerana ramai ahli parti yang menyokongnya. Maka akan gagallah usaha memenangi PRU 14.

10. Saya percaya mereka yang mencadang tindakan ini berhasrat untuk menggagalkan perjuangan parti PPBM. Sekaligus mereka ingin lihat saya gagal dan Najib berjaya.

11. Mereka yang mendakwa mereka sokong saya, sebenarnya adalah musuh saya yang berjuang untuk Najib. Jika mereka teruskan usaha ini saya bersetuju mereka dikeluarkan dari parti. Penyokong Najib tidak ada tempat dalam Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.

LAMA DAN BARU

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on May 19, 2017

1. Dikatakan terdapat 4 juta Gen Y yang sudah sampai umur untuk mengundi dalam PRU 14. Di masa yang sama terdapat lebih ramai yang sudah lama dewasa dan berhak mengundi. Pendapat dan perjuangan mereka tidak sama.

2. Sementara yang sudah lama dewasa masih ingin meneruskan perjuangan lama mereka, Gen Y tidak ambil kisah perjuangan lama dahulu. Bagi mereka yang relevan ialah keadaan sekarang.

3. Mereka dilahir setelah sudah lama merdeka. Perjuangan untuk kemerdekaan tidak relevan lagi. Dato Onn, Tunku, Tun Razak dan Dr Mahathir hanyalah nama-nama dalam sejarah. Mereka tidak lagi boleh buat apa-apa untuk Gen Y.

4. Yang boleh ialah pemimpin sekarang. Tetapi pemimpin-pemimpin sekarang juga tua. Ada yang sudah menjangkau 90 tahun. Tak mungkin mereka faham masalah Gen Y.

5. Mereka semua sama. Sama ada dalam Kerajaan atau dalam parti-parti pembangkang – mereka sama. Politik mereka adalah kuasa – politik cari duit – politik salahguna kuasa, politik mengekalkan kedudukan mereka.

6. Parti lawan pun sama, parti Kerajaan pun sama. Yang berbeza parti lawan masih berebut-rebut untuk tempat berpura-pura bersatu, mengejar tempat dan kuasa. Ini pendapat Gen Y.

7. Parti Kerajaan pula tidak membenar sebarang rebutan kuasa, taksub dengan kepimpinan mereka, menyokong secara buta tuli, menafikan kenyataan.

8. Antara dua pasukan yang akan bertanding ini, pada pendapat Gen Y, sama sahaja. Menang mati bapak, kalah mati emak.

9. Oleh itu apa perlunya Gen Y melibatkan diri, mengundi dalam PRU. Menang ke, kalah ke sama sahaja.

10. Yang tua akan undi – undi untuk muka lama – undi untuk perjuangan yang lama. Tetapi undi yang tua sahaja tidak mencukupi. Bermakna mereka akan kalah. Bermakna penerima dedak akan menang. Bermakna cash akan terus jadi King.

11. Yang tua tidak boleh ditinggal. Yang muda tidak boleh diketepikan.

12. Untuk kemenangan gandingan antara tua dan muda diperlukan. Yang tua mesti faham pemikiran yang muda. Yang muda mesti ambil kira keusangan minda yang tua dengan perjuangan lama mereka.

13. Najib boleh menang bukan kerana rakyat sokong dia. Najib boleh menang kerana rakyat sudah bosan dan “sinikal” terhadap politik.

14. Bosan! Mereka tidak undi. Tak undi samalah dengan undi Najib.

15. Najib menang; semua kalah.

MALU

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on May 18, 2017

1. Malu adalah perasaan manusia bertamadun apabila melakukan sesuatu yang tidak harus dilakukan mengikut budaya hidup masyarakat berkenaan.

2. Demikian orang Jepun sanggup membunuh diri kerana malu apabila gagal menjalan tugasnya atau tidak sebaik yang diharapkan atau melakukan sesuatu yang tidak baik dalam pandangan masyarakatnya.

3. Dalam masyarakat Melayu perasaan malu berbeza dengan orang Jepun. Mereka berasa malu jika kain terlondeh di hadapan orang. Jika gagal menjalan tugas yang diberi atau diamanah, perasaan malu tidak mengganggu fikiran mereka. Jika mereka mengambil atau melesapkan duit yang diamanahkan kepada mereka juga mereka tidak berasa malu. Jika terjadi padanya sesuatu yang diketawa masyarakat atau dianggap tidak mengikut budaya mesyarakat Melayu perasaan malu tidak melandanya dengan kuat. Sedikit sangat perasaan malu di kalangan orang Melayu.

4. Hari ini perasaan malu dikalangan orang Melayu sudah terhakis lagi. Walaupun sudah ada pendapatan yang mencukupi, tetapi jika terdapat peluang untuk melesapkan wang yang diamanah kepadanya perasaan malu tidak menghalang perbuatan yang salah ini. Kebanyakan bersedia menerima apa yang diberi percuma tanpa segan-segan. Punca pemberian ini tidak disoal.

5. Satu dari perlakuan yang tidak baik dan sepatutnya memalukan, ialah amalan membodek. Adakalanya pembodek sanggup memterbalikan perbuatan kerana ingin dipuji oleh tuannya. Tidak ada perasaan malu barang sedikit pun apabila dikesan dan diperkatakan tentang perbuatan yang tidak baik olehnya. Menyalahguna hak membuat keputusan kerana ingin membodek tuannya tidak memalukan orang tertentu ini.

6. Ada yang apabila dituduh mencuri, orang yang tidak tahu malu akan hanya senyum.

7. Sepatutnya perasaan malu akan menyerang masyarakat jika ada dikalangannya seseorang atau kumpulan terlibat dengan perbuatan jenayah. Tetapi hari ini ada orang Melayu tidak sedikit pun berasa malu jika dipimpin oleh pemimpin yang diketahui telah mencuri dan melakukan pelbagai jenayah.

8. Jauh dari menjauhkan diri dari pemimpin seperti ini, ramai juga yang sanggup berkongsi hasil pencurian ini. Ada yang menolong menutup jenayah ini dan mendakwa pemimpin tidak tahu dan telah ditipu. Apabila pengawai yang ditugas menguatkuasa undang-undang atau aturan peraturan, disoal, tanpa segan-segan tanpa malu, mereka menyalahtafsir undang-undang.

9. Masyarakat yang memiliki ramai yang tidak tahu malu tetap akan rosak dan mundur. Anggotanya dan bangsanya akan dipandang hina. Inilah yang sudah terjadi pada bangsa Melayu sekarang.

PAS SEJARAHNYA

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on May 16, 2017

1. Seperti yang disangka, PAS tidak akan bekerjasama dengan Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia; parti Melayu Islam dan Pribumi. Samada PAS akan adakan kerjasama dengan UMNO atau tidak, penyertaan PAS dalam PRU 14 tetap akan menghakis sokongan kepada Pakatan Harapan dan kepada PAS sendiri.

2. Pakatan Harapan dan PAS akan kalah dan Barisan Nasional akan menang. Inilah sebenarnya perjuangan PAS. Ia bukan untuk bangsa dan agama. Ia bertujuan melemahkan orang Melayu.

3. Sejak penubuhannya lagi hasilnya ialah untuk melemahkan politik Melayu. Diwaktu UMNO ditubuh semua orang Melayu selain dari ahli Malay Nasional Party (MNP) menyertai parti itu. Orang yang berpelajaran agama semuanya menyertai UMNO. Mereka dikenali sebagai ulama UMNO.


4. Sehingga penubuhan Persatuan Kebangsaan Melayu Bersatu atau nama Inggerisnya United Malays National Organisation atau UMNO, tidak ada pertubuhan yang diiktiraf sebagai parti politik orang Melayu.

5. Kesatuan Melayu Muda dan Parti Kebangsaan Melayu bukanlah parti politik tetapi hanyalah kumpulan-kumpulan kecil intelek Melayu yang memberi perhatian kepada beberapa masalah yang dihadapi oleh orang Melayu. Mereka bukan gerakan massa yang memiliki ideologi tertentu dan berusaha untuk mempengaruhi sistem pemerintahan Tanah Melayu. Mereka juga tidak memberontak melawan penjajah.

6. Sebaliknya UMNO ditubuh khusus untuk menentang cadangan British merampas Semenanjung Tanah Melayu untuk menjadikannya tanah takhluk yang diperintah secara langsung oleh mereka.

7. Demikianlah kuatnya tentangan orang Melayu melalui UMNO sehingga British terpaksa akur kepada kehendak UMNO dan membatalkan Malayan Union.

8. Demikianlah kehormatan British kepada UMNO sehingga Tunku Abdul Rahman, sebagai Yang diPertua UMNO diberi hak untuk melantik beberapa ahli dalam Majlis Perundangan Persekutuan (Federal Legislative Council) dan juga dalam state council negeri-negeri.

9. Tunku memilih individu yang berpengalaman dalam bidang pentadbiran. Kebanyakannya berpelajaran Inggeris. Hanya beberapa orang sahaja dari ulama-ulama UMNO dipilih oleh Tunku.

10. Di waktu ini ramai dari ulama UMNO pilih untuk keluar UMNO dan menubuh PMIP (Pan Malayan Islamic Party).

11. Dengan kononnya PMIP akan perjuang Islam ramailah ahli dan penyokong UMNO terpikat. Dalam PRU untuk 52 dari 98 kerusi pada 1955, PMIP menang hanya 1 kerusi. 51 kerusi dimenangi oleh Perikatan (UMNO, MCA dan MIC).

12. Dalam PRU 1959, yang pertama selepas merdeka, PMIP memperalatkan agama Islam sepenuhnya. Orang UMNO dikafirkan kononnya kerana bekerjasama dengan orang kafir MCA dan MIC.

13. Ramai orang Melayu terpengaruh dengan dakwaan ini sehingga ada yang mengkafir ibubapa mereka, dan ada yang berkahwin semula kerana perkahwinan mereka sebelum menjadi ahli PAS tidak sah dan anak mereka menjadi anak haram.

14. Tetapi PAS hanya menang 13 kerusi Parlimen tahun 1959 dari 104 yang dipertandingkan. Walaubagaimanapun PAS tawan Kelantan dan Terengganu.

15. Sejurus selepas pilihanraya perpecahan berlaku dalam Kerajaan PAS di Terengganu dan ianya jatuh, diganti dengan Kerajaan Perikatan.

16. Pada 1964 dan 1969 prestasi PAS merosot dengan memperoleh hanya 9 kerusi pada 1964 dan 12 kerusi pada 1969.

17. Selepas rusuhan kaum 1969, PAS menyertai Barisan Nasional dan memenangi 14 kerusi.

18. Perpecahan berlaku dalam PAS dan parti itu keluar dari BN. Pada 1978, 1982 dan 1986 prestasi PAS turun semula. Ia mendapat 5 kerusi pada 1978, 5 kerusi pada 1982 dan hanya 1 kerusi pada 1986.

19. Apabila Tengku Razaleigh tubuh parti Semangat 46, PAS mengadakan Pakatan dengannya. Dengan itu pada PRU 1990 dan 1995 PAS memenangi 7 kerusi tiap PRU.

20. Pada tahun 1999 PAS menyertai Barisan Alternatif bersama dengan Parti Keadilan Rakyat dan Parti DAP.

21. Ulama PAS bekerja keras untuk menghalalkan kerjasama dengan parti kafir DAP. Mereka mengeluarkan sebuah kertas bertajuk Tahaluf Siyasi.

22. Penggunaan bahasa Arab jelas bertujuan untuk menunjuk kerjasama PAS dengan parti kafir DAP diterima oleh agama Islam. Ayat-ayat diceduk dari Al-Quran yang kononnya mengizinkan kerjasama PAS dengan kafir walaupun berlawanan dengan dakwaan PAS dahulu bahawa orang UMNO menjadi kafir kerana bekerjasama dengan orang kafir MCA dan MIC.

23. Tahaluf Siyasi hanya bermakna bekerjasama (pakatan) politik dalam bahasa Melayu atau political cooperation dalam bahasa Inggeris. Ayat-ayat Al-Quran yang disebut dalam kertas Tahaluf Siyasi itu tidak menentukan kerjasama politik seperti itu halal atau tidak.

24. Semasa PAS berada dalam Barisan Nasional dalam PRU 1974 ia juga bekerjasama dengan orang UMNO yang telah dikafirkan dan ramai parti-parti anggota BN yang dimiliki dan disertai oleh orang kafir.

25. Yang menjadi kenyataan ialah di masa PAS bekerjasama dengan DAP dalam Barisan Alternatif (PKR, PAS, DAP) kemenangan PAS bertambah kepada 27 pada 1999.

26. Pada tahun 2004 apabila DAP tidak menyertai Barisan Alternatif, PAS memperoleh hanya 7 kerusi.

27. Kemudian pada 2008 dan 2013, apabila Pakatan Alternatif dijadikan Pakatan Rakyat dan DAP kembali menyertainya prestasi PAS meningkat semula. Pada tahun 2008 PAS memenangi 23 kerusi dan pada 2013, 21 kerusi.

28. Yang jelas dari rekod ini ialah pencapaian PAS merosot teruk apabila bersendirian, tetapi sebaliknya apabila berpakat dengan DAP, pada 1999, 2008 dan 2013 PAS mendapat kemenangan tertinggi iaitu 27 pada 1999, 23 kerusi pada 2008 dan 21 kerusi pada 2013.

29. Semua ini adalah kenyataan yang benar dari rekod rasmi.

30. Al-Quran melarang mengkafir orang Islam. Sesiapa yang membuat dakwaan ini tanpa soal selidik keatas beribu-ribu orang Islam, orang yang mengucap dua kalimah syahadah, maka kafir itu akan kembali kepadanya. Benarlah apa yang disebut dalam Al-Quran apabila PAS bekerjasama dengan kafir DAP dan lain-lain orang kafir. Mengikut fahaman ajaran Islam oleh PAS, ahli parti itu sudah jadi kafir.

31. Membaca sejarah benar ini tidak akan mengubah pendirian orang PAS. Mereka begitu taksub dengan pemimpin dan parti mereka sehingga dakwaan Nik Aziz bahawa Tuhan mencarut pun diterima baik oleh mereka.

32. Mereka dipercayai membaiah kepada parti dan pemimpin mereka. Bai’ah ini mengikat mereka sehingga mereka sanggup membelakangkan Islam dan Al-Quran.

33. Bahawa Al-Quran melarang berpakat untuk membuat jahat, dan sebaliknya berpakat hanya untuk amal ma’aruf tidak sedikit pun dipedulikan oleh PAS dan pemimpinnya.

34. Sekarang PAS akan bertanding kononnya untuk melawan UMNO, tetapi sebenarnya untuk memberi kemenangan kepada UMNO. Samada dedak terlibat atau tidak Wallahu A’lam. Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala Maha Mengetahui.

35. Kita manusia cuma boleh teka. Yang jelas ialah apa yang baik datangnya dari Allah Subhanahu Wataala. Keburukan datang daripada kita sendiri.

36. Terpulanglah kepada ahli PAS samada mengikut ajaran Islam atau terus membai’ah dan taksub kepada parti dan pemimpinnya yang berjuang untuk nafsu didunia.

TIGA PENJURU

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

1. Pilihanraya Umum ke-14 adalah yang terpenting dalam sejarah negara.

2. Tumpuan ialah kepada menjatuhkan rejim Najib. Seluruh rakyat sedar bahawa rejim pimpinannya telah merosakkan negara. Kerosakan ini berlaku dalam semua bidang.

Politik

3. Dalam politik negara Najib telah hancurkan demokrasi sehingga Malaysia dikenali sebagai kleptokrasi; iaitu Kerajaan dipimpin oleh penjenayah yang melesapkan kewangan negara; Kerajaan yang tidak berpandu kepada undang-undang; Kerajaan yang menekan rakyat secara zalim; yang membelakangkan keadilan; yang tidak hormati perpisahan antara legislative (pembentuk undang-undang) dengan executive (pelaksana dasar dan undang-undang) dan judiciary (kehakiman). Ketiga-tiga ini dikuasai oleh Najib sebagai ketua Kerajaan dari pihak pembuat undang-undang.
Dasar berkecuali sudah dihapuskan oleh Najib, diganti dengan ikatan ketenteraan dengan negara China.

Ekonomi

4. Ekonomi Malaysia rosak teruk kerana rasuah, peningkatan perbelanjaan pentadbiran dan penambahan kakitangan Kerajaan yang tinggi; belanjawan yang tidak bijak yang menumpu kepada mendapat sokongan popular kepada Perdana Menteri khususnya, pinjaman terlalu besar dan dasar yang menekan swasta. Hari ini beban hutang tidak dapat dibayar oleh Kerajaan.

Sosial

5. Kos sara hidup rakyat meningkat kerana cukai G.S.T. dan kejatuhan nilai Ringgit yang teruk. Pengangguran meningkat termasuk dikalangan lulusan universiti.

6. Pelaburan asing terhad kepada pembelian tanah untuk dibangun bandaraya oleh kontraktor luar dengan mengguna bahan dan pekerja dari negara kontraktor. Kos pelajaran dan rawatan meningkat tinggi dan tidak dapat ditanggung oleh kebanyakan rakyat.

7. Semua bidang-bidang politik, ekonomi dan sosial yang telah jadi buruk kerana dasar dan pengurusan Najib akan menjadi lebih buruk lagi jika Najib terus berkuasa.


8. Hanya jika Kerajaan pimpinan Najib diganti dengan kerajaan baru sahaja barulah boleh keadaan politik, ekonomi dan sosial dipulih semula.

9. Bolehkah kita yakin Kerajaan yang mengganti dapat mentadbir dengan lebih baik dari Najib? Sesungguhnya tidak ada Kerajaan yang begitu buruk dan berjenayah besar seperti Kerajaan Najib.

10. Kerajaan yang bercadang mengganti Najib ialah Kerajaan parti-parti campuran pembangkang yang akan dipimpin oleh pemimpin-pemimpin yang mahir dalam politik dan dibantu dengan mereka yang berpengalaman dalam pentadbiran negara. Mereka tidak ada rekod jenayah atau menyalahguna kuasa. Mereka terpelajar dan pernah menjadi anggota Kerajaan.

11. Soalnya apakah mungkin gabungan parti-parti lawan menang dalam PRU14. Besar kemungkinan mereka menang jika pertandingan hanyalah antara mereka dengan Barisan Nasional.

12. Tetapi ada parti-parti yang kononnya akan letak calon untuk melawan Najib dan BN. Dengan ini akan berlakulah pertandingan tiga atau empat penjuru. Kesannya ialah pengundi yang berhasrat mengalahkan Najib akan berpecah dua atau tiga. Penyokong Najib, kerana sebab-sebab tertentu akan bersatu mengundi BN. Najib akan menang kerana berpecahnya undi pembangkang.

13. Dengan perkataan lain parti-parti yang memecahkan pengundi penentang sehingga pertandingan menjadi tiga atau empat penjuru, sebenarnya menyokong BN dan Najib.

14. Perbuatan ini menjadi satu jenis pengkhianatan kepada usaha menjatuhkan Najib dan menghentikan kerosakan kepada negara. Najib akan teruskan cara pentadbiran yang umum tahu akan memufliskan negara dan meletaknya di bawah kuasa asing.

DAP

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on May 03, 2017

1. Banyak sudah yang diperkatakan berkenaan DAP, terutama kesanggupan Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia bekerjasama dengan parti itu. Hampir semua cemuhan terhadap DAP diasaskan kepada kebencian terhadapnya sebagai parti totok Cina. DAP dipercayai berjuang semata-mata untuk bangsa Cina.

2. Yang anehnya parti MCA yang 100% Cina, dan berjuang hanya untuk kepentingan orang Cina tidak ditolak oleh orang Melayu. Walaupun MCA mempunyai hubungan rapat dengan Parti Komunis China, dan kita menolak fahaman Komunis dan telah berperang dengan mereka, ini pun tidak menjadikan MCA musuh kepada UMNO dan ramai orang Melayu.

3. Walaupun MCA yang menuntut supaya diberi jawatan Timbalan Perdana Menteri Kedua bagi menjadinya lebih kuat dalam Parti Barisan Nasional, ini juga tidak menarik bantahan dari ahli UMNO dan ramai orang Melayu.

4. Sebenarnya Parti DAP bukan parti perkauman Cina. Ia adalah parti berbilang kaum walaupun majoriti dari ahlinya Cina. Terdapat Melayu, India dan suku kaum Sabah Sarawak dalam DAP. Ada wakil rakyat DAP yang terdiri dari orang Melayu dan India. Pemimpin besar DAP dahulu ialah Karpal Singh.

5. DAP banyak mengguna bahasa kebangsaan dalam mesyuaratnya. Lagu partinya juga dinyanyi dalam bahasa kebangsaan.

6. Sebagai anggota dalam Pakatan Harapan DAP telah menyatakan secara terbuka dan menandatangani penyataan sokongan Pakatan Harapan kepada Perlembagaan Malaysia.

7. DAP bersama Pakatan Harapan, dan secara bersendirian menyokong dan mengiktiraf:

1) Institusi Raja-Raja Melayu
2) Hak Istimewa Melayu dan Bumiputera
3) Bahasa Melayu ialah Bahasa Kebangsaan
4) Agama rasmi Malaysia ialah Islam

8. Kepimpinan DAP tidak pernah tuntut jawatan Perdana Menteri atau Timbalan Perdana Menteri. Pimpinan tertinggi DAP mengaku bahawa oleh kerana penduduk Cina adalah minoriti di Malaysia, tidak mungkin DAP mendiri Kerajaan diperingkat pusat di Malaysia, jauh sekali dari menjadi Perdana Menteri walaupun jika DAP menang semua kerusi yang ditandingi.

9. Dari 222 kerusi parlimen hanya 52 sahaja yang mempunyai majoriti Cina. Untuk mendiri Kerajaan DAP perlu miliki lebih daripada 111 kerusi. Jelaslah DAP tidak memiliki cukup kerusi. Tetapi ia boleh menganggotai Kerajaan campuran walaupun kurang dari kerusi Melayu. Demikian juga MCA dan Gerakan.

10. Mungkin juga parti berbilang kaum Melayu memberi beberapa kerusi kepada calon bukan Melayu. Tetapi majoriti dari tiga buah parti kepimpinan Melayu akan meletak calon Melayu dan PPBM sebagai parti Melayu tidak mungkin mencalon dan menyokong bukan Melayu sebagai Perdana Menteri. Gabungan parti-parti pembangkang tidak mungkin didominasi oleh DAP selain di Pulau Pinang.

11. Kenyataan Najib bahawa jika UMNO kalah maka Kit Siang akan menjadi Perdana Menteri tidak berasas sama sekali. Sebaliknya Najib sudah pun mengadakan perjanjian ketenteraan dengan China dan seorang penulis China menyatakan pelabuhan Melaka dan Kuantan yang sedang dibangun dengan berbillion Ringgit modal syarikat China akan diguna oleh tentera laut China. Kemenangan Najib dan UMNO akan mengikat Malaysia dengan negara China, dan Malaysia tidak lagi dapat mengamal dasar luar berkecuali seperti dahulu.

12. Sebenarnya yang patut ditakuti oleh UMNO dan orang Melayu ialah Najib sebagai Perdana Menteri, bukan Kit Siang. Rekod Najib sebagai Perdana Menteri bukanlah sesuatu yang boleh dibanggakan oleh rakyat Malaysia, terutama orang Melayu. Sebaliknya rekod DAP di Pulau Pinang tidak seburuk Kerajaan BN di pusat.

RESPECT MALAYSIA

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on April 20, 2017

1. Najib wants the world to respect Malaysia.

2. It is going to be a very difficult task for the world.

3. Currently the world has labelled Malaysia as one of the ten most corrupt country in the world. And there are good reasons for labelling Malaysia corrupt.

4. Najib himself is alleged by the American Department of Justice as being involved in the biggest money laundering activities in the world. Then of course is the loss of billions of Ringgit by 1MDB under Najib. Bankers in Singapore have been jailed and two banks forced to close down for their role in illegal dealings with 1MDB. The Swiss A.G. has failed to get the cooperation of the Malaysian A.G. over illegal dealings involving 1MDB.

5. And now a deputy minister had been caught telling a lie that the Malaysian A.G. had asked for information on 1MDB from the Swiss A.G. which the Swiss promptly denied.

6. Then there is the USD681 million in the PM’s private account which no one in the world believes is a gift from a Saudi prince.

7. The world press is asking why Najib is still the Prime Minister of Malaysia, and no investigation has been made by the police over reports of Najib’s wrongdoings by Bank Negara, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and the Auditor-General. That these reports have been made official secrets is something that is difficult for the world to accept. Hiding evidence is a crime in any country. But in Malaysia the Government of Najib does this with impunity.

8. The world is aware of the sackings of auditors by 1MDB and that there has been no auditing of 1MDB over the last two years.

9. These facts are known to the world. Malaysians will know more. They know that the Malaysian Government is highly indebted, is in deficit, is unable to meet budget allocations. They know of the high level of corruption in the Government. They laugh at the orchestrated shows of support for the Prime Minister. And they know of the huge sums of money received by BN members of Parliament to ensure their loyalty.

10. They know of the depreciation of the Ringgit, the high cost of living and the fall in their living standards.

11. The controlled media may make glowing reports about Malaysia’s economy but the world knows that Malaysians are suffering in terms of the economy, are living in fear of harassment by Government agencies, of high levels of unemployment.

12. In this world of easy communications and the Internet, what Malaysians know will also be known to the rest of the world. Hence the question asked of Malaysians when abroad. Where before there was admiration for Malaysia’s achievement, now foreigners ask Malaysians, “What is happening to your country?” Clearly they know that things are going wrong in Malaysia.

13. But Najib seems to demand that the world respect Malaysia. What is there for the world to respect about Malaysia.

14. Can they respect Malaysia because BN has the means to realise its promises to Malaysians. So far the BN record is the worst registered in terms of economic achievements, democracy and the rule of law, freedom of the media and free speech, open debates and quality of life. And the history of wrong doings by Najib as listed above cannot be unknown to the world.

15. In fact Malaysians abroad often hide their Malaysian identity for fear of being told about the corruption and the allegations of wrongdoings by their Prime Minister.

16. Najib should stop making ridiculous demands that the world should respect Malaysia. But if this is what he wants, then allow the courts to hear charges of wrongdoings by him and lift the ban on the reports by Bank Negara, MACC and the Auditor General.

17. Better still, he should resign and let Malaysia be democratic again. A kleptocracy, a Malaysia ruled by crooks and criminal as alleged by numerous foreigners and their institutions will never gain the respect of the world.

HIGH VALUES

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on April 19, 2017

1. It is amusing to read about Dato’ Sri Najib urging Malaysians to have high cultural and moral values. Even more amusing is his demand for the world to respect his Malaysia.

2. But then Najib does not believe in leadership by example. He apparently believes in doing what “I tell you to do and not what I do”.

3. But whether he believes in leadership by example or not his followers cannot help but look up to him as their model. Accordingly his UMNO followers have become as corrupt and immoral as him.

4. How on earth does he expect that in 33 years time, through his 2050 Transformation Slogan, Malaysian would posses high moral values and culture?

5. Najib is not an example of a person of high moral values. In the first place he believes that cash is king. This simply means that people can be corrupted to make them do anything; to vote for BN in the next election for example. As a result Malaysia has been classified as one of the then most corrupt countries in the world. Do people respect a highly corrupt country.

6. And the money for corruption will come largely from stolen 1MDB money. Incidentally there seems to have been no audit of 1MDB money over the last two years. Is this something which will make the world respect us.

7. Now we hear reports of senior civil servants having hundreds of millions of Ringgit which had obviously been acquired corruptly. Far from achieving higher moral values, it seems the values have deteriorated under Najib. Morality and culture are going from bad to worse. Merely introducing a new slogan about Transformation in 33 years is not going to spin Malaysians around to possess high cultural and moral values.

8. Actually Najib’s call to Malaysians to achieve high moral values and culture and for the world to respect Malaysia is ludicrous. Currently Malaysia’s name is mud to the world. Malaysians are ashamed to admit they are Malaysians when abroad. Such as the reputation of Malaysia caused by Najib’s 1MDB losing billions of Ringgit, money laundering and the billions found in his banking account.

9. Worse still is the fact that he is still the Prime Minister of Malaysia. In Brazil and South Korea, mere suspicion of corruption has resulted in suspension and arrest. But in Malaysia Najib is safe and is brazenly telling Malaysians to be honest, and demanding the world to respect this corrupt country.

PAS

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on April 17, 2017

1. PAS ditubuh oleh ulama UMNO yang kecewa kerana sebab-sebab tertentu. Nama asalnya ialah Pan-Malayan Islamic Party (PMIP).

2. Sejak PMIP sebagai PAS bertanding dalam pilihanraya, parti itu tidak pernah menang besar di peringkat nasional.

3. Apabila bertanding bersendirian pencapaiannya amat rendah. Hanya pada 1959, PRU Pertama, PAS menang 13 kerusi. Pada PRU Kedua 9 kerusi dan Ketiga 12 kerusi.

4. Apabila menjadi komponen dalam BN pada 1974, PAS menang 13 kerusi.

5. Kemudian pada 1978, 1982, 1986, setelah berpisah dari BN dan bertanding bersendirian PAS menang 5, 5, 1 sahaja.

6. Sebaliknya apabila bersama dengan Semangat 46 dan secara tidak langsung dengan DAP, PAS menang 7 kerusi pada 1990, 1995.

7. Hanya apabila bersama PKR dan DAP dalam Barisan Alternatif pada 1999 barulah PAS dapat kemenangan tertinggi iaitu 27 kerusi.

8. Pencapaian PAS menurun dengan teruk apabila DAP tidak menyertai Barisan Alternatif pada 2004, dengan memenangi hanya 7 kerusi.

9. Kemudian PAS menyertai Pakatan Rakyat bersama DAP dan PKR. Prestasi PAS meningkat semula dengan memenangi 23 kerusi pada 2008 dan 21 kerusi pada 2013.

10. Dari pencapaian PAS selama ia ditubuh, harapan untuk memerintah diperingkat pusat tidak ada sama sekali. Hanya diwaktu menyertai Barisan Nasional sahaja yang PAS menjadi parti kecil dalam kerajaan pusat.

11. Perjuangannya sebagai parti Islam, jika ada, tidak sedikitpun berhasil. Kejayaannya terhad kepada memecahbelah orang Melayu sehingga pengaruh dan kuasa mereka berkurangan dalam politik negara.

12. Sekarang PAS akan sekali lagi bertanding bersendirian. Mengikut rekod PAS yang tertera di atas, jika PAS bertanding sebanyak 80 kawasan Parlimen, pencapaian mungkin tidak lebih dari 15 kerusi.

13. Kebanyakan dari 80 kawasan ini, PAS tahu PAS akan kalah. Tetapi mengikut adat PAS, di kawasan yang PAS tidak ada harapan langsung pun, PAS akan bertanding.

14. Secara teknikal PAS melawan UMNO BN, selain dari melawan parti-parti lain yang meletak calon.

15. Dengan PAS bertanding dan menjadikan pertandingan tiga atau lebih penjuru, kesannya ialah memecahbelah musuh-musuh BN (UMNO). PAS akan kalah dan mengheret turun parti pembangkang lain. UMNO akan menang, kerana penyokong parti lawan berpecah.

16. Secara langsung PAS berusaha, membelanja wang yang tidak sedikit untuk memberi kemenangan kepada BN dan Dato Sri Najib. Jika dikatakan PAS dibawah pimpinan Hj Hadi menyokong kepimpinan Najib, ia bukanlah keterlaluan. Ia memang benar.

17. Bagi orang Melayu penubuhan PAS adalah satu malapetaka. Ia memecahbelah perpaduan Melayu dalam UMNO yang berjaya tumpas Malayan Union. Walaupun orang Melayu menjadi majoriti di Malaysia, tetapi dengan adanya PAS orang Melayu tidak menjadi majoriti lagi.

18. Lebih dari IMP (Independent of Malaya Party) pimpinan Dato Onn, penubuhan PAS sebagai serpihan dari UMNO melemahkan kuasa politik Melayu dan menghalang kemajuan mereka.

19. Oleh kerana semua orang Melayu beragama Islam, penubuhan PAS bukan sahaja memecahbelah orang Melayu tetapi juga memecahbelah orang Islam. Demikianlah dalam usaha PAS untuk mendapat sokongan mereka sanggup mengkafir orang Melayu yang tidak menyertai parti PAS. Dengan ini gejala sosial menimpa keluarga Melayu kerana ada ahli PAS yang mengkafir ibubapa mereka dan menganggap perkahwinan mereka tidak sah. Sehingga ke hari ini pun ada tempat di mana orang Melayu tidak sembahyang bersama.

20. Keputusan PAS menolak kerjasama dengan parti-parti pembangkang dan meletak calon di dalam kawasan yang PAS tidak mungkin menang bermakna PAS menyokong UMNO dan Najib dengan memecah undi pembangkang. Sejak PAS ditubuhkan, perpecahan dikalangan orang Melayu dan orang Islam di Malaysia tidak dapat dipulih lagi.

MOVEMENTS OF MONEY

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on April 17, 2017

1. Money is no longer in the form of coins and currency notes. Today money may be in the form of cheques, credit cards, entries in the account books of banks, telegraphic transfers, even bit coins.

2. But whatever form that money takes, except for small amounts, all others must be recorded in writing or some form of permanent records.

3. Money in the banks may be in the form of coins, currency notes or gold. But in whatever form the value they represent must be as stated in account books. Much of the money dealt in banking transactions do not exist except in the account books of their banks. Banks may therefore lend money which they don’t have. This is necessary because there cannot be enough coins or currency notes minted for the needs of business.

4. We hear much these days of huge sums of money being owned by the rich. Actually they do not have the money in cash i.e. coins and currency notes. They only have entries in the bank books indicating the money they have with the banks.

5. If they want to use their money for payment of goods or services, they merely issue cheques to the amount.

6. Today they may use a credit card which would be accepted by the seller of goods or service, which the seller can claim from the bank. Usually the claim involves a transfer from the account of the buyer to the account of the seller in the bank.

7. If the seller needs to use the money in his accounts, he merely issues a cheque or he uses his credit card.

8. No cash in the form of coins and currency notes are involved at anytime.

9. When a large sum of money is paid to a person for whatever reason, the money could be in the form of a cheque. The cheque has to be deposited in a bank where the sum is credited to the account of the receipient. The cheque is retained by the bank but the stub is retained by the depositor. Of course the depositor can also maintain a book recording the payments made to the bank, or the receipt of money from the bank. In addition the cheques can hold record of the transaction.

10. If for example USD681 million is donated to a person, then this amount will be in the record of the donor’s bank in the first place. There will be records in the bank of the money deposited with it. These records will have details of the source of money, the form of money and a lot of other details.

11. When the money is given to a receipient, the source bank will have records of the acts involved in instructing the bank, the form of transfer, receipts by the receipient or the receipient’s bank charges etc.

12. The receipient bank will credit the amount in the account of the receipient with details of the donor’s bank.

13. If subsequently the receipient spends the money, for whatever purpose, it will be recorded by the bank (debited), recorded in the cheques issued and if the cheque is cashed, the cash paid out as cash or cheques or transfer to the account of the creditor would all be recorded.

14. Clearly an investigator can follow the records of the movements of the USD681 million including the return of USD620 million to the generous Saudi Prince.

15. Banking secrecy should not be in the way of an investigation by Government authorities investigating criminal acts.

16. The mere letter of admission by the generous donor is not enough. Neither can the decision of the Attorney General that there has been no wrongdoings be accepted without all the records aforementioned.

17. Even swearing on the Quran is not acceptable as we cannot tell how strong is the faith of the swearer.

18. So, what can be believed is that the USD681 million or RM2.6 billion in the account of the Prime Minister is 1MDB money. And unless it can be proven otherwise the money must have been stolen. The person stealing money must be classified as a thief whether he is punished or not.

1MDB MONEY

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

1. 1MDB is about money. It was set up as “Sovereign Wealth Fund”. But it is not. It is not because the 42 billion Ringgit was borrowed. And borrowed money cannot be regarded as wealth.

2. Money today takes many form. Originally it came as coins made of precious metal. It later is represented as currency notes, then as cheques, credit cards, debit cards and now as pin numbers.

3. Whatever form that money takes, it cannot be moved without some written records. These records may be as receipts for payment, bills, cheques and cheque stubs, entries in account books of traders and banks, records of electronic transfers etc.

4. The names of the owners or recipient must be in these records, especially when large transactions are involved.

5. If it is claimed that some generous Arab had given the USD 681 million, there must be plenty of records. The donor must have records of the money deposited in his bank, from which he must have given the money. He cannot have that amount of money as cash in his house. His donation must have been recorded in the bank or banks.

6. The bank will have the name of the owner, when he received the money, from whom, to whom, in current account, or fix-deposit, in one lump sum or in drip and drab, currencies used, deposited as cash or cheques or electronic transfer etc.

7. And when the money is donated to the lucky recipient, what form did it take; as cash or cheques or electronic transfer, from whom to whom, account number, entries in books, the bank where the money is held, the cheques or cash drawn and transferred, the electronic transfer, the recipient banks, the records in the recipient banks’ books, the cheques drawn on the bank, payment made, to whom, statement in bank account etc etc.

8. Clearly money, especially large sums of money cannot be moved within a country or across borders without a whole series of reports or notes being made in banks and cheques and the account books as to who paid the recipient for goods or services etc etc.

9. Merely declaring that the money is a donation for whatever purpose or a letter from the alleged donor is not enough. A declaration by the A.G. that there was nothing wrong with the transaction is also not enough.

10. Let us see all the records and the documents including the business of the ultra rich donor who had donated easily the biggest sum of money in the history of human charity. Let us see the cheques drawn or the money in the Arab Malaysian Bank.

11. Let an independent body have sight of all the documents and swear as to the truth of their findings.

12. Until then we can only accept the report of the Department of Justice of America as God given truth, that 1MDB money has been stolen by the people responsible for its management, i.e. by the Chairman of the Advisory Board of 1MDB, that Jho Low still has most of the billions and that the money can be used to bribe, particularly in the PRU 14.

13. I wonder who advised the all-powerful Attorney General not to talk to the press, not to explain “No Further Action (NFA)” does not mean no further action but means further action can be taken. Is his “consent to Bank Negara” to issue a letter of administrative compound to 1MDB not a consent but is a denial of agreement to what Bank Negara was legally required to do.

14. Or is “no wrongdoing” an admission that there was wrongdoing by Najib.

HAS THERE BEEN ANY WRONGDOINGS BY NAJIB?

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at Che Det on April 10, 2017

Since the debate had been disallowed, I believe Malaysians missed the opportunity to hear Nazri Aziz explaining some of the burning questions I would have asked. These questions are based on known facts and are not wild accusations or speculations.

1. For example the Malaysian Attorney General declared that Najib was not guilty of any wrongdoings.

2. Accordingly all the reports by Bank Negara, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and the Auditor General which were the bases for indicting Najib, were dismissed by him. But they were also put under the Malaysian Official Secrets Act, which means nobody can quote from them even if they had read them.

3. And Najib declares that he had done nothing wrong.

4. On the other hand the Singapore prosecutors have found

i. Yak Yew Chee, former director of Swiss bank BSI, guilty of four criminal charges related to Malaysia’s state investor 1MDB.
ii. Yvonne Seah Yew Foong, a former BSI private banker, was sentenced to two weeks jail and fined $10,000 becoming the second person convicted in Singapore’s probe into 1Malaysia Development Bhd.
iii. Former BSI banker Yeo Jiawei was jailed for 30 months for witness tampering in 1MDB scandal.
iv. Falcon Bank’s ex-Singapore branch manager, Jens Sturzenegger, jailed 28 weeks and fined S$128,000 in 1MDB related scandal.

5. Also reported by the Straits Times of Singapore is Sturzenegger’s ties with Jho Low (Low Taek Jho) a close friend of Najib, “accused around the world of being at the centre of alleged massive money laundering linked to 1MDB”.

6. Clearly Singapore finds a lot of things wrong with 1MDB funds and management. But Malaysia’s famous Attorney General declares there is nothing wrong in the operation of 1MDB money. He does not see any need for continued investigations.

7. It cannot be that 1MDB money flew on its own to Singapore into the hands of the four crooks named. Somebody in Malaysia who managed 1MDB must have sent the money to Singapore. Somebody from 1MDB must have had dealings with the crooked Singapore bankers and the banks involved. Somebody in 1MDB’s management must know about the systematic siphoning of 1MDB money, or abuses of the authority to handle it.

8. But the A.G., the Malaysian police and 1MDB executives are not interested. The whereabouts of the 1MDB money and the siphoning of a substantial amount of it by various people seems to be of no concern to Malaysian authorities. That billions of Ringgit of 1MDB money have been lost is also of no concern to Malaysian authorities, the 1MDB managers and Najib as the sole authority on 1MDB money and as Prime Minister of the country.

9. When the BMF money was lost way back in 1981 the Government set up a committee of three, headed by Tan Sri Ahmad Nordin, the Auditor General then, to investigate the management of BMF and the losses, although the money lost was not Government money. A white paper was issued and parliament debated the matter openly. The report was not placed under the Official Secrets Act.

10. Civil suits against BMF officials were initiated by the Government and extradition began to bring back Lorrain Osman.

11. The amount lost by BMF was about USD47.5 million (RM118.75 million at the exchange rate in 1980s), a piddling sum compared to the RM42 billion (42 thousand millions) involved in 1MDB scandal. Yet the Government of that time initiated action against the culprits. In the end Lorrain was jailed and others who were implicated punished or fled the country.

12. In the case of 1MDB and the loss of billions as well as the continued need to pay billions for loans raised by 1MDB, the Attorney General merely said nothing wrong was done and no more investigation needed to be made.

13. This decision by Tan Sri Dato Apandi b. Hj. Ali, the Attorney General clearly seem to be a cover-up of Najib’s involvement in the losses, the obvious possibility that the DOJ’s allegation that the RM2.6 billion ($681 million) in his bank account came from 1MDB is true.

14. Najib’s approval must be obtained for all money transactions by 1MDB, according to article 117 in 1MDB’s Articles of Association. Any loss of money by 1MDB must therefore be placed squarely on Najib’s shoulders.

15. On 3rd June 2015 Bank Negara issued a statement which include the legal provision under which the bank would trigger formal investigations. The provisions are:

i. When monies for which approvals are given are not used for the purpose indicated in the submission;
ii. When incorrect or false information are provided in the submission;
iii. Failure to comply with the conditions in the approval.

16. If any or all of these rules and regulations are breached then Bank Negara would revoke the approval.

17. The statement went on to say “with respect to 1MDB, a formal inquiry has commenced to examine any contravention of the Central Bank’s rules and legislation……”.

18. It seems that Bank Negara did carry out an inquiry on 1MDB for on 28th April 2016, the bank issued the following statement:
“Following receipt of the consent of the Attorney General today, Bank Negara Malaysia has issued a letter of administrative compound to 1MDB for failure to comply with directions issued under the Financial Services Act, 2013. This includes requirement for 1MDB to repatriate monies remitted abroad following the revocations of the three permissions granted by Bank Negara Malaysia to 1MDB in 2009, 2010 and 2011. 1MDB has also failed to submit evidence and documentation specified by the Bank to justify its liability to fully comply with the repatriation order. 1MDB has been given until 30 May 2016 to pay the compound. The payment of the compound marks the conclusion of the investigation by Bank Negara Malaysia on the contraventions to the rules and regulations of the Central Bank.”

19. Conclusion of investigation does not mean no action should be taken based on the results of the investigation.

20. In a news report on 25 May 2016 “1MDB confirms that it has today made payment in full, of the compound, in compliance with the decision of BNM”.

21. This payment of the compound means that 1MDB does not dispute the correctness of the accusations made by Bank Negara that it is guilty of wrongdoings with regard to the approval of Bank Negara for USD1.83 billion for debt management and restructuring exercises overseas.

22. Since the Attorney General had given his consent to the action taken by Bank Negara, he himself has clearly admitted that 1MDB was involved in wrongdoings with regard to the approval of Bank Negara.

23. The wrongdoings of 1MDB must be shouldered by Dato Sri Najib because they cannot be done without his approval (article 117 of 1MDB Articles of Association).

24. How then can the A.G. declare that Najib has committed no wrongdoings when he himself had given his consent to Bank Negara to issue a letter of administrative compound (fine).

25. According to the law the A.G.’s decision is final. In the courts, appeals are allowed. But alone in this country the A.G. holds indisputable authority. But the fact remains that his decision is contrary to his earlier decision to give Bank Negara consent to compound (fine) 1MDB.
