A message went out from Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali office: you provoke us at your peril, no matter what the collateral damage. We play piped music before one trapped cobra and call it an opera. Then we fall asleep at our own show.It is both easy and pointless to blame the government. Every government keeps a thermometer in its holster and calibrates its decibel levels according to ground temperature. If it’s warm, it will blow hot,Our Malaysian response to a scandalous mess is neat and categorised. Cash and sex are the north and south pole of mass interest, each with a sprawling magnetic field. We divide the hemispheres with the equator of logic. Cash and corruption are the preserve of politics. Sex is the province of glamour. We refuse to recognise any cross-over evidence
Why we Malaysians are such suckers for all sorts of conmen Is Malaysia going to pieces? a trauma turns into a struggle between anger and amnesia. It is a no-contest. Amnesia wins every time.explains the callous indifference to the perpetrators of crime evasion was prelude to escape local wrath. Over time, even the noise has become a passing perfunctoryThe ebb from outrage to rage, its decline to umbrage, and then a drift to amnesia is the narrative of the 12 months Our unstated reason has been that action against Najib, new media.http://lawmattersjournalmalaysia.blogspot.my/ has done some moving reportage of in the last few days. It would be interesting to find out, possibly through market research, whether the readers of the nation’s most powerful newspaper have been moved at all.
the Swiss also tell us that there is misappropriation of money. All of these are linked with 1MDB and invariable to one man, the chief fundraiser, and with his private bank accounts. The PM has a credibility deficit as do you, Mr AG.there is a deficiency in our law.disputed thatmight argue that there is no law that says that the receipt of a donation from a foreign source is illegal. The motive of the “donation” is definitely important if the recipient is the PM.By receiving such a huge sum will certainly make the PM feel obliged to the donor, and what the donor wants in return can be detrimental to the interest of the country.No one gives such huge sum for nothing and this is the reason why the people want to know the motive of the “donation”.Apandi, your answer is naive. If a person has billions, certainly there is no problem for him to give away RM2.6 billion, but it is certainly a big problem if the recipient is a PM, regardless of its purpose have to accept that Arabia is the source of various fables, from Ali Baba and quite deservedly the Forty Thieves to Sinbad the Sailor to The Arabian Nights.
But now,Malaysin will be impressed and no doubt titillated to learn that you, without the least shame, guilt, and self-respect, are the author of the latest tale of wonder.under that Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act “gratification” means “money, donation, gift, loan, fee, reward, valuable security, property or interest in property being property of any description whether movable or immovable, financial benefit, or any other similar advantage”.It is clear that donation comes under the meaning of gratification as defined by the Act.

But, according to Maryam, her husband Ibrahim al-Kuwaiti “quickly settled the matter”, and the bribed Swat cop never realized he had just let Osama bin Laden escape. Maryam was giving evidence before the Justice Javed Iqbal commission, set up to enquire into the events of 2 May 2011, when US Navy Seals flew three hours into Pak territory, found and killed Osama. Nothing works on our great subcontinent better than instant cash. Al-Kuwati, Osama’s most trust aide, knew that. This is the kind of authentic detail which makes a fabulous story so entirely believable. Who’s the RM2.6b Saudi prince? In the great toss-up between perception and evidence, the former generally wins. Conventional wisdom, for instance,Apandi says donations are not illegal under Malaysian law. Corruption is better understood with a scan below the surface. Tilt the perspective on what seems an obvious fact, and the picture changes to startling effect. has made a dream debut as Najib’s sidekick think back to the start of much play of an opinion poll, done by his associate in the open.
