Bernama today clarified that Malaysia Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has denied buying a RM30 million boat as reported by a newspaper in Turkey recently. “The report is inaccurate. It is a lie. I don’t know where it got such facts,” he told reporters here when asked to comment on a newspaper report that he went to Bodrum in Turkey recently to see the boat which he ordered four months ago.

According to the report, the boat is made of Akuju, Maun, Sipo and Brimanya tree which is imported from South Africa and expected to be completed in 16 months. “I was in Turkey but did not see the boat,” he said in reference to his transit in Turkey from Kuala Lumpur before coming here for a three-day official which ended Tuesday. Badawi denied again the allegation via TV3 1:30pm news.

Hurriyet however claimed that the yacht belongs to Malaysia Prime Minister as the Prime Minister ordered the boat himself 4 months ago as per translated by Rocky’s Bru blog. Badawi was also reported to be enjoying himself very much fishing together with Ananda Krishnan, owner of Maxis Communications Bhd (KLSE : MAXIS, stock-code 5051) onboard a 40-meter-long luxury yacht “Obsessions”.

With the recent 60% price hike in road tolls and the statement proclaiming that the government actually is sincere in sharing the burden with the citizens, it’s only wise not to say one thing but did another thing behind the voters who are finding it hard to survive with the ever-increasing cost-of-living due to high-inflation.
