PM Najib, please sue WSJ & S’wak Report

It is another blow to the credibility of Malaysia’s Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak! This time it isn’t in print by The Edge Media Group owned by Datuk Tong Kooi Ong or any other small publishing house, but by none other than the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) owned by media baron Rupert Murdoch and it is even more damning!

For the first time ever, the Prime Minister is said to be having more than US$ 700 million into his personal account with AMPrivateBank transferred by 1MDB related parties. Is WSJ keeping the best for the last? Or there are more to come? All these while, accusations after accusations have been linked to Jho Low but never in the name of the Prime Minister himself as the end beneficiary until WSJ joining in the orchestra.

I call this an orchestra because whenever I read the news of the ills related to 1MDB and counterclaims, I felt that I am transported into a philharmonic theater, then following a cue from a maestro’s baton, the revelations that were published day after day, were like a crescendo yesterday and a contralto today with very short interval. But is it really music to my ears?

No, all these aren’t music to my ears. For months now, Putrajaya and 1MDB have been denying any wrongdoings but denying without affirmative action won’t win the day. To prove critics wrong, bullying tactic by the Home Minister towards The Edge Media Group don’t work either. You can silence up all the critics in Malaysia with an iron fist but you can’t silence up the whole world at this age of globalization.

If 1MDB and Prime Minister Najib have got nothing to hide about the allegations and in the right, prove that the allegations by Wall Street Journal and Sarawak Report are wrong. Take legal action against them for misleading the world, for malicious intent, for tarnishing your good name, for conspiracy to overthrow the government by foreign element and well as a plot to link Malaysia as a rogue country. You can always do what Lee Kuan Yew did to the foreign media when they libel him and Singapore! Take WSJ to courts in the United States and Sarawak Report in UK. 

I am very sure that all the legal eagles in Malaysia as well as their overseas associates are more than willing to do it pro bono for 1MDB and the Prime Minister the moment Datuk Seri Najib Razak issue the calling. It is just the matter whether will Prime Minister Najib do such a calling and when! The ringgit is falling, the country’s image is “kanasai” as Hokkien will term it for bad shape, and the people are suffering, so, who don’t feel the pinch and the urge to act if such an act will save the country?

What say you, Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah? 

At this stage, denial don't work anymore, it is time for action to prove them wrong! Present your facts and take legal action!
