SarawakReport : 1MDB : StanChart fined S$5.2 million & Coutts fined S$2.4 million.

As More Action Is Taken By Singapore Najib Demands Blind Loyalty From UMNO

3 December 2016

Najib Razak has been desperately seeking to instil military discipline into his UMNO ‘troops’ during their recent Assembly, decking all of them out in different coloured uniforms each day like Rosmah’s handbags, as if he were some mad dictator.

This is not least, of cause, because he is a mad dictator.  He has ditched the requirement to re-elect him to his party position until after the next election, precisely because he fears they would take the opportunity to replace him.

UMNO accessories - different day, different colour
UMNO accessories – different day, different colour
Indeed, whilst he yesterday made ‘cleansing the party of traitors’ his prime target before facing the electorate, there are those who believe that voters would prefer to see a cleansing of the party.

Even the opposition believe that keeping dirty Najib in post is by far their best option for the threatened snap poll.

Najib’s big message therefore was that UMNO party members must obey him. Forget obeying the law, forget obeying the principles of right and wrong or indeed obeying the constitutional authority of the public who elected them. They must only obey him.

And, since he pays them, they all were happy to shout and wave and applaud as one corrupt leader after another was paraded up on stage and as Najib issued blood curdling Jihadist threats against political opponents and minority communities, as if they were an opposing army instead of neighbours with democratic rights.

This is what Najib has done to his party and to Malaysia, simply because he cannot give a straight answer to the question ‘What did you do with the money from 1MDB?’.

Singapore moves on banks

Meanwhile, neighbouring Singapore heaped yet more international humiliation on the Prime Minister, who had to sack his own Attorney General and Deputy (and many more besides) in order to pretend he didn’t steal billions from the public.

As the UMNO goons (all decked out in blue today) whooped and cheered, Singapore fined Coutts Bank and Standard Chartered, both for transferring money that the Monetary Authority described as having been misappropriated by 1MDB.

“The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has imposed multi-million dollar fines on the Singapore branches of Standard Chartered bank and Coutts & Co for breaching anti-money laundering regulations in relation to 1MDB-related fund flows through these banks, it said in a release on Friday (Dec 2).
StanChart was fined S$5.2 million and Coutts was fined S$2.4 million. [Singapore Straits Times]

Najib has, as we all know, has declared that no money was misappropriated from 1MDB. He has also said that the $681 million that popped up in his personal account, which the US Dept of Justice traced back to 1MDB, in fact came from a secret Saudi Sheikh.

Cheers and claps from UMNO (more dedak please).

What are genuine good Muslims or good Christians or good anybody to make of such behaviour?

It seems not only has this man made his country financially bankrupt, he has made his party morally bankrupt.

Bonuses – what do ‘Fat Mike Sherwood and Najib have in common?

Indeed, there is good reason to believe that Najib’s sudden fighting talk about a snap early election is precisely because he is fearful of further damning revelations from the international investigations into the world’s biggest ever kleptocracy scandal.

Bogus 'Dr' Tim Leissner, GSI wizz kid SE Asia boss, who faked his CV and qualifications
Bogus ‘Dr’ Tim Leissner, GSI wizz kid SE Asia boss, who faked his CV and qualifications
Singapore has not only moved against these two banks.  The Monetary Authority also inflicted a ten year ban on the former Asia boss of Goldman Sachs.

Tim Leissner, the personal friend of Najib’s and Jho Low fixed up all the dodgy 1MDB bond deals totalling $6.5 billion, through the agency of corrupt collaboration with two Abu Dhabi fund managers working for Aabar.

The bank had already sacked Leissner and he is said to be cooperating with the US financial authorities, who are also investigating this, the world’s biggest single kleptocracy scandal ever, in a relentless fashion.

Few observers of 1MDB are in any doubt but that the distinctly fishy Goldman commission on those bond issues hides further dirty corrupt practices that appear to have involved more massive kickbacks for Jho Low’s ring of fraudsters serving Najib and rich payments to those who collaborated from other outfits.

The grilling of Leissner and others ought flush out the truth, sooner rather than later.
So was it coincidental that just last week that Goldman Sachs’ International boss, ‘Fat Mike Sherwood’ caused consternation by resigning his powerful position unexpectedly, with few reasons given?

Fat Mike was till that moment considered a major contender to take over the top post at the bank, having built up its ’emerging markets’ business in a quite spectacular fashion in those lean post-crash years, just as 1MDB was getting going.

A big part of those fantastic profits were owing to 1MDB and today Singapore’s Monetary Affairs Authority confirmed that Sherwood signed off on those bond deals:

“Mr Leissner, who left Goldman Sachs in February, managed the client relationship with 1MDB for all of its three bond issues from 2012-13.
A team of Goldman Sachs staff, mainly from Hong Kong but also from Singapore, Malaysia and the United Arab Emirates, arranged the bond issues and they were fully underwritten by London-based Goldman Sachs International, the MAS said.[Financial Times]

Should Sherwood have judged differently on touching such a deal and indeed on releasing an offer document that praised 1MDB for having a ‘robust three tier management structure free from political influence’ when in fact the fund was completely controlled by Najib and half the money raised was stolen on day one?

Perhaps, if this was not the actual reason Fat Mike resigned, then it should have been and perhaps soon we will receive the opinion of US regulators on the matter also?

Consider the news that made Fat Mike so famous back in the UK in the first place.  It was the fact that in the depth of a belt tightening recession for everyone else (as a result of a financial crash for which Goldman Sachs was in very large measure responsible) he and his UK international team issued the biggest bonuses ever in the winter of 2014.

Sherwood himself clinched no less that £13 million on top of his normal salary papers estimated.  Significantly, this hand-out was not for profits made that year, but the previous year of 2013 – exactly when GSI was reaping in its nearly $700 million reward, purely for having raised three dodgy bond deals for 1MDB:

Fat Mike Sherwood - did he bow out before the news about his 2013 bonus comes out?
Fat Mike Sherwood – did he bow out before the news about his 2013 bonus comes out?
So, like Sherwood, has Najib also decided to move before things get worse and to throw caution to the winds with a snap election before even more gets out about 1MDB?

Tun Mahathir : Makanlah duit haram ini, duit dari menjual bangsa, agama dan tanahair.

with thanks to :

Friday, 2 December 2016


Tidak menunggu lama, Tun Mahathir Mohamad pantas menjawab sebahagian kritikan dan serangan yang ditujukan terhadapnya sepanjang Perhimpunan Agung UMNO yang sedang berlangsung sekarang.

Menulis di blognya, sambil menyifatkan Melayu UMNO sebagai kelompok yang mudah lupa, mereka kata beliau, sudah lupa kepada perjuangan untuk agama, bangsa dan negara kerana terlalu menyembah kepada duit.

"Dengan kata lain, ahli UMNO yang terus menyokong Najib Razak adalah bersubahat dalam melesapkan berbilion-bilion ringgit wang kerajaan.

"Makanlah duit haram hasil menjual agama, bangsa dan negara itu," kata Tun Mahathir yang baru kembali dari luar negara, malam semalam.

Aduhh...bisanya serangan balas Tun Mahathir kali ini. 

Tak terasa apa-apakah mereka apabila mengetahui sumber haram sedang mengalir dalam darah daging dan kemudian dikongsi makan pula bersama anak, isteri, cucu dan saudara-mara?

Ikuti tulisan penuh Tun Mahathir seperti di bawah ini. (SH 02/12/2016).

1. Kita lihat banyak negara-negara yang mencapai kemerdekaan setelah dijajah, memilih sistem demokrasi. Malaysia juga demikian. Tetapi sementara di Malaysia pilihanraya dapat menentukan parti yang akan mendiri Kerajaan, di kebanyakan negara lain pilihanraya hanya menghasilkan Kerajaan otokratik.

2. Sebabnya ialah banyak penipuan berlaku dalam pilihanraya sehingga keputusan dipertikai oleh pihak yang kalah. Kadang-kadang rusuhan berlaku, bahkan adakalanya perang saudara berlaku.

3. Sebenarnya penipuan mudah diperlakukan dalam pilihanraya. Diantaranya ialah dengan memindah pengundi dari kawasan yang tetap dimenangi kepada kawasan yang parti kalah dengan jumlah undi yang sedikit sahaja.

4. Dengan tambahan sedikit sahaja pengundi dari kawasan kubu kepada kawasan kalah, kemenangan mudah dicapai.

5. Sogokan wang dan barangan juga boleh menentu kemenangan. Biasanya dibuat secara rahsia kerana ia menyalahi undang-undang, tetapi jika Kerajaan boleh menghalang segala tindakan undang-undang terhadapnya, sogokan boleh dibuat secara terbuka oleh parti Kerajaan. Jika ada laporan dan dakwaan bahawa sogokan telah berlaku, ketua polis dan pendakwa raya boleh mengenepi atau menutup dakwaan itu. Mahkamah tidak akan dapat mendengar kes itu.

6. Mungkin juga orang yang membuat laporan dimasuk dalam tahanan dan dihadapkan ke mahkamah. Setelah ini berlaku tiada akan ada lagi sesiapa yang akan membuat laporan.

7. Orang asing juga boleh diguna untuk mengundi parti yang berkuasa. Katakanlah terdapat ramai orang asing yang berada dalam negara kerana sebab-sebab tertentu, mereka ini boleh diberi kad pengenalan warganegara dan didaftar sebagai pengundi. Sudah pun dikesan orang asing yang memiliki pasport negara lain tetapi mempunyai kad pengenalan Malaysia.

8. Dengan sogokan juga pegawai dan kakitangan boleh mengambil bahagian dalam penipuan ini. Pekerja dalam pengurusan pilihanraya boleh juga disogok supaya bekerjasama dan tidak melapor penyelewengan yang berlaku. Jumlah undi pun boleh ditipu semasa dikira.

9. Mereka yang bersubahat seperti ini boleh dilindungi oleh pihak yang berkuasa. Mereka tidak akan didakwa.

10. Apabila diisytihar keputusan pihak yang tidak puas hati boleh membantah. Mereka boleh berdemo.

11. Tetapi selagi ketua pihak penguatkuasa undang-undang dan pendakwaraya menolak segala dakwaan penipuan dan bantahan oleh rakyat sia-sia sahajalah usaha yang dibuat.

12. Parti yang menang secara penipuan akan dirikan Kerajaan dan akan terus menipu dan melesapkan duit rakyat. Ini sudah pun berlaku.

13. Demokrasi memang sistem yang terbaik tetapi demokrasi boleh disalahguna dan salahlaku sehingga wujud diktator demokratik – atau lebih tepat lagi kleptokratik. Demikianlah wang boleh menghapuskan semangat sayang kepada bangsa, negara dan agama.

14. Untuk mengelak semua ini berlaku terdapat hanya satu cara sahaja. Rakyat sebagai pengundi, kakitangan dan pegawai mestilah menolak dengan sekeras-kerasnya RASUAH dalam apa bentuk sekalipun.

15. Apa juga yang diterima dan boleh ditakrif sebagai rasuah adalah haram – haram di dunia dan haram di akhirat. Islam, agama-agama lain dan masyarakat mengutuk rasuah. Percayalah rasuah tetap akan memburukkan nasib semua dari kita termasuk dan lebih-lebih lagi mereka yang menerima rasuah. 

16. Janganlah sesiapa berkata oleh kerana rasuah tidak termasuk dalam hukum hudud, dianya akan dibalas hanya di akhirat sahaja. Dia tidak menjadi kesalahan di dunia. Oleh itu terimalah rasuah sebagai rezeki.

17. Sebenarnya balasan di dunia akan dirasai oleh semua kerana rasuah, selain dari menjadi beban kepada masyarakat tetap akan menghancurkan negara.

18. Melayu UMNO mudah lupa, seperti saya nyatakan dalam perhimpunan Agung UMNO dahulu. Kali ini mereka lupa sayang kepada bangsa, negara dan agama seperti perjuangan UMNO di waktu ia ditubuh. Yang mereka ingat hanyalah duit itu raja. Dan mereka teruslah menyembah duit. Pilihanraya kali ini akan memperlihat duit-duit yang dicuri dikongsi bersama oleh mereka yang terus menyokong Najib. Dengan perkataan lain ahli UMNO yang terus sokong Najib bersubahat dengannya dalam melesapkan duit Kerajaan (duit rakyat) berbilion-bilion Ringgit.

19. Makanlah duit haram ini, duit dari menjual bangsa, agama dan tanahair. everyone should start married life.

Malaysia Hari Ini di PWTC

"Jamuan makan malam UMNO hambar. Meja bnyk kosong. Perwakilan yg dtg lepas makan tak sampai 10 minit blah balik. Najib fed up bengang.

Bnyk yg tak dtg mkn. Pasal tau duit haram. Ramai perwakilan bengang dan marah ucapan najib, zahid n sayap2 semua mengundag perpecahan, menyerang sesama melayu.

Ahli Umno sendiri sudah mula menghukum Najib dan Umno.

Allah Swt sedang tunjukan...

Najib sekali ni berucap pun pegang sapu tangan asyik lap air liur bersembur dan selekeh.
Dalam criminology tu bukti najib nervous dan ketakutan dan guilty conscious. Tu bukti orang bersalah.

Jiwa tak tenteram makan duit haram, duit keringat rakyat. Semua otu Allah Swt sedang tunjukan".
