Malaysiakini - 81 MPs ask king to put off Najib's appointment.
The Pakatan Rakyat MP was led by Anwar Ibrahim (why am I not surprised) in submitting the petition to HM.
The basis for their request is that Najib has been accused of being linked to the murder of Altantuyaa Shariibuu.
He stated: "Even worse, he has been linked with the murder of a Mongolian woman, and the case has been reported in newspapers and magazines around the world. Hence, we urge the king to postpone his appointment as prime minister until all these allegations have been cleared by an independent commission."
Who has accused him?
And on whose accusations have the foreign media based their reports?
And what evidence has Anwar offered to his HM to support his petition?
Isn’t this just another of his 916 bluff, or last desperate attempt to preserve his own interest in, what I have always believe, being able to return to UMNO? A Najib in charge of UMNO rules this possibility completely out.
My only regret is that Anwar Ibrahim has dragged Lim Kit Siang and Pak Haji Nik Aziz into his outlandish royal petition to HM.
Najib murdered Altantuyaa? OK, let’s talk about Balasubramanian, the missing PI. Of course the sequence of events leading to the mysterious disappearance of Bala have been attributed by his supporters to another of Najib’s nefarious machinations.
But I have always questioned the following points related to Bala:
(a) Bala’s press conference in releasing his Statutory Declaration (SD) that Najib had sex with Altantuyaa was chaired (or dominated) by Anwar Ibrahim (why wasn't I surprised?)
(b) Bala’s SD which claimed Razak Baginda to have revealed his (Razak’s) most inner secret to a hired private investigator, with even a statement that Altantuyaa told Najib who then told Razak Baginda who then told Bala who then told us (via his SD), that she liked it in her back – coincidentally an 'equivalent sin' to the 2nd sodomy accusation against Anwar then
(c) Bala’s reporting to the police station was done WITHOUT an accompanying lawyer. I find this totally implausible for a man who has just made a very damning SD against the DPM of a nation. And wasn’t this just strange considering that whenever Anwar moves near any police station he would be accompanied by a brigade of lawyers.
(d) Bala’s immediately disappearance after his 2nd SD (bizarrely withdrawing his 1st SD, as if he was threatened by the police or unklnown parties), which could only hurt only one person, namely Najib.
I had believed that the whole set of scenarios, SD, report to police station, 2nd SD withdrawing his 1st SD, and subsequent disappearance (in these process fortifying the allegations against Najib), had been a setup … to damn Najib.
Since then, I've come to learn that whoever had ‘persuaded’ Anwar to personally select parachutist S Manikumar as the PKR candidate for Bukit Selambau over far more capable candidates, in the strange 'inexplicable' way Anwar had personally selected Loh Gwo Burne (who wasn’t even a PKR member until approximately a few weeks before the general election) to be PKR’s candidate for the federal constituency of Kelana Jaya, might have some form of connections with the disappeared private investigator Bala.
Apparently there is a nexus between that 'persuasive' person, former (PKR) ADUN for Bukit Selambau YB bigamist Arumugam and Bala - incidentally we have also learnt that Manikumar is Arumugam's brother in law.
For more read my posts:
(1) PI Bala in Bangkok or Kolkata?
(2) Somewhere in Puducherry
But tomorrow when Najib becomes PM, much as PKR members will pray, fantasize for last-minute miracles or curse Najib to die of heart attack tonight, I believe the doors of UMNO will be closed for one person, probably forever.
