Typhoon fighter jets in exchange for silence on 1MDB:Has the UK cut a deal with Najib, brokered by the UK MOD's Grant Rogan? 

by Ganesh Sahathevan 

It appears that Malaysian PM Najib Razak's Government has decided that it will acquire British made Typhoon jets. It is understood that the deal involves the UK Government not acting on information it has on the 1MDB scandal.

The deal is likely to include an offsets component (see below) which is more than likely to have been brokered Grant Rogan and his Blenheim Capital.In 2010 Blenheim was awarded a $5 billion contract by the Malaysian Government to manage ALL of its defence off-set deals. Blenheim has close ties with the UK's Ministry of Defence,which together with the UK's arms industry would the be principal beneficiary of his deals (see references below).

However, by April 2016 Blenheim appeared to have given up on that business and was instead working with the Malaysian Government to finance, build and operate two military communications satellites. The signing of the deals was witnessed by DPM Zahid Hamidi, and roughly coincided with a news that Malaysia had already decided on acquiring French made Rafale jets instead of the Typhoons. 

The main thing that has changed between then and now is the US DOJ's seizure of assets acquired with funds stolen from 1MDB, which include a multi-million dollar apartment in the UK held in the name of Riza Aziz. Despite that early involvement in the US action, UK authorities have done nothing with regards prosecution.

The industry new service Intelligence OnLine reported on 21 December 2016:

During a visit to London in November, Malaysia’s deputy prime minister and interior minister Ahmad Zahid held a discreet meeting with Britain’s main defence industry players. BAE Systems and Airbus Group were told that the Malaysian government would not place an order for new fighter plans until the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) affair had been resolved. 

The meeting is reported to have been arranged by Grant Rogan of Blenheim Captial.
