As expected, the most efficient super cop on planet Earth – Khalid Abu Bakar – has announced that Malaysian police have found no elements of CBT (criminal breach of trust) in MARA’s corruption scandal in Australia. Mr Khalid, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) can now washes his hands off the case – Bravo!!

The Australian court, vendors, witnesses, press and people can scream and continue to hear jaw-dropping sworn testimonies all they want. As far as Malaysian government is concerned, a AUS$4.75 million (US$3.66 million; RM13.7 million) allegedly bribery cannot be qualified as corruption, in line with PM Najib’s party, UMNO’s constitution.

 

Such paltry amount falls under “tips” category, or at most “commission”. The proof? Prime Minister Najib Razak’s French-Spanish Scorpene diesel-electric submarines were purchased with EURO 114 million (US$125 million; £80 million; RM475 million) in “commission”. So, the supposedly kickbacks in the purchase of Dudley International House in Melbourne was pathetically 3% of Scorpene scandal.

So, do you now understand why nobody believes heads will roll in the MARA’s corruption scandal? For Australian authorities making a brouhaha out of AUS$4.75 million “tips” was already an insult to the “corrupt community” in Malaysia, not to mention the waste of time to even mention it in the first place.

 

The Government of Australia has to be realistic. If Emperor Najib survives a US$125 million Scorpene scandal, and most likely will survive the present US$11 billion 1MDB scandal, what are the chances that he would collapse under a US$3.66 million MARA scandal? Actually, Najib can announce to all and sundry that he had approved the properties purchase and still can afford to show his middle-finger to Abbott administration (*grin*).

Right now, Najib has zero time about anything else but his 1MDB scandal, which has taken a new twist following the arrest of former PetroSaudi International director Xavier Andre Justo. Taking advantage of the situation, tactical scientist Habibul Rahman and propaganda specialist Lim Kok Wing are burning midnight oil to taint Mr Xavier in order to cleanse Mr Najib.

 

Actually, the script is rather boring and predictable – pay a person so that he becomes the fall guy. Similar to Abdul Razak Baginda who took all the bullets in the murder of Mongolian Altantuya scandal but eventually walks away a free man in order to save Najib Razak, it seems the 1MDB scandal will use the same plot again. But this time, the scapegoat will be a 49-year-old Swiss national Xavier Andre Justo.

As part of SOP, UMNO-linked New Straits Times was given instruction by Lim Kok Wing’s team to paint Mr Xavier as a “greedy” crook with his body covered with tattoos. Justo was arrested in Koh Samui, Thailand, for allegedly blackmailing PetroSaudi International over its deals with 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

 

Amusingly, the supposedly crook Justo was allegedly paid RM15 million in compensation to leave the company – PetroSaudi. But why paid a staff such a mind-boggling amount of money if he had indeed acted against the company’s rules and regulations in the first place? With such amazing perks and benefits, PetroSaudi must be the best company to work for, better than Facebook and Google, no?

Okay, let’s assume Justo wasn’t such a good boy after all. He got lucky to be in possession of highly classified information which could fetch millions of dollars due to hanky panky in the 1MDB transactions. He might had gone as far as asking for “commission” to zip his mouth. After being paid, he got greedy and asked for another 2.5 million Swiss francs (US$2.66 million; £1.7 million; RM10 million).

 

Heck, he might even had “doctored”, “tempered” certain documents to increase its value. But does that mean all the allegations about 1MDB’s RM42 billion debt were false? No rocket science here. If 1MDB was as clean as a whistle, Najib administration would have had published all the statistics and documents last year.

But the emperor didn’t. Not only wasn’t there a single concrete document to back his innocence about allegations of corruption and money laundering, the prime minister who also doubled as the finance minister couldn’t even tell between valuable “hard cash” and valueless “units”, supposedly transferred back from Cayman Islands to a Singapore bank.

 

Most importantly, why 1MDB couldn’t even serve its due debts, if indeed 1MDB has been making jolly good amount of profits? Tactician Habibul Rahman and propagandist Lim Kok Wing can continue shifting all the blames on Mr Xavier for all they like. After all, they have been paid tens of millions of dollars to do their job. Still, 1MDB is not any cleaner than before.

Now, do you believe money buys happiness, or rather job security in the case of Najib the son of Razak? Don’t be surprise and ROFL if suddenly Xavier Andre Justo tells the public that all the corruption and money laundering allegations against 1MDB were false because he was asked and paid RM42 billion by Mahathir Mohamad and Sarawak Report to frame the innocent Najib Razak.

 

Since Xavier was such a greedy crook, how hard could it be to use him to turn the table against Mahathir and everyone who have been critical about the 1MDB scandal? If he could be promised to walk a free man, or at least spends some time behind bars to make the drama more realistic, plus some “retirement funds” and daily visit by Thai chicks, there could be a happy ending to the scandal (*tongue-in-cheek”).

1MDB Scandal - Najib Razak - ghosts and devils turn grind stone

Perhaps it’s true about an infamous ancient Chinese saying –If you have money you can make the ghosts and devils turn your grind stone ( 有钱能使鬼推磨 )”. That roughly translates into money makes the world go around, with no exception including the ghosts. So, if you’re flushed with money, you can literally pay the ghosts to do your dirty work. After all, Justo is a “ghost”, because he’s called “Gwai Lo” by the Chinese.

Quite some days before this Justo incident blew up, RPK hinted Dr M would be in for a big surprise. Was this he was referring to?

it doesn’t matter if what RPK hinted was about Justo’s blackmail …

that’s because 1MDB is still as tainted as before …

besides, you can only blackmail something against someone if that something is “true”, otherwise why would that someone worry about something which is “false”, right?

cheers …
