It Is Not A Question Of Claiming Yourself Innocent Or Proclaiming Your Pedigree, It Is A Question Of The Truth

Najib declared that he is not a crook.

Nixon proclaimed the same.

But Nixon chose to leave office instead of being impeached.

Will Najib step down as the Pm following the growing number of calls for him to do so?

The Pm insists that he is innocent and that he will not capitulate as he is a Bugis warrior.

It is not a matter of claiming yourself innocent or proclaiming your pedigree. It is a matter of the truth.

If the Pm is innocent, it is a simple thing for him to tell the whole world who was the donor or who were the donors of the 2.6 billion ringgit found in his personal accounts. How, where, when, why and to whom the bulk of the'donation' was said to have been returned? Why retained some and returned the bulk? And what was the some retained used for?

Najib should also try to convince people that he was completely in the dark as to how millions of ringgit from SRC had been dumped into his personal accounts or who did it? And after he had come to know of it, what had happened to the money?

Or who was said to have used SRC credit cards to pay for million ringgit purchases and services?

Until and unless the Pm does so, it is hard to persuade the court of public opinion to believe in fairy tales, nothwithstanding Ag Apandi declaring the Pm not guilty of any wrongdoing.

Especially not, in the light of what the Swedish Ag himself had exerted that from their own investigations, billions of ringgit might have been diverted out of 1MDB!

If Najib is innocent (and we do so hope he is, of course) shouldn't he - like the rest of Bolehlanders - be eager to find out the truth and get to the bottom of the whole affair, as he is the boss of the sovereign fund especially set up to give Bolehland an economic boost?

Instead of trying to frustrate efforts to get to the bottom of the matter by transferring out corruption investigators, sacking the previous Ag who was said to have been on the verge of preferring charges against the Pm himself and scuttling the original Parliamentary Committee investigating 1MDB by co-opting some of its members into the Cabinet?

Those actions don't intimate nor inspire confidence in the Pm's innocence - they speak more of culpability and guilt, than not.

Of course, the Pm could still convince the court of public opinion of his innocence by coming clean.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
