Stop protecting ‘Malaysian Official 1’ with ‘weird’ statements

SHAH ALAM, JUL 22: Umno-Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders and other officials in Malaysia are urged to refrain from giving various ‘weird’ statements regarding ‘Malaysian Official 1’ just to prove their loyalty to certain individuals.
Batu Member of Parliament Tian Chua said that the individual stated in the United States (US) Department of Justice (DOJ) civil suit filed yesterday was similar to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
“The US Attorney referred to an individual similar to the Malaysian Prime Minister. Najib should answer sincerely regarding his role in the 1MDB scandal.
“Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor’s (Najib’s wife) son, Reza Aziz, was also named and the phrase used was Malaysia’s funds were stolen,” he said when contacted by Selangorkini.
Tian Chua said, the phrase also strengthens the case that the scandal involved the most influential figures in the country.
“The expose tarnishes the country’s image because of such corrupt leadership.
“The rakyat is waiting for Najib’s explanation. If he fails to explain this matter, the rakyat has no choice but to rise up and demand that he resigns,” he said.
DOJ repeatedly referred to an individual named ‘Malaysian Official 1’ in its suit, giving rise to speculation regarding the identity of the said individual.
Although Najib is not named in the suit, many have speculated that ‘Malaysian Official 1’ referred to him.
