Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak must be super proud of his family, for the wrong reason. Najib himself is easily the most controversial prime minister the country has ever produced. Born with a silver spoon in his mouth by virtue of being the eldest son of Abdul Razak Hussein (the second Prime Minister), he got almost everything without hard work.

He’s easily one of the top distinguished members of a corruption club, with allegations of corruption and money laundering ranging from Scorpene submarine, 1MDB and RM2.6 billion private donation scandals, just to name a few. There was also the allegation about his involvement in the murder of Mongolian Altantuya, with whom he allegedly had anal sex.

His wife, the beauty legend Rosmah Mansor, isn’t too bad herself. Besides self-proclaimed as the FLOM (First Lady of Malaysia), she was hit with the infamous RM24 million diamond ring scandal. Her shopping spree would put every single Hollywood celebrity to shame. She probably owns more Hermes Birkin bags than anyone on planet Earth.

Najib’s son, Nazifuddin Razak, was allegedly involved in Ufun Ponzi Scheme whereby 120,000 people were swindled of at least 38 billion baht (US$1.13 billion, £720 million, RM4 billion) in Thailand. His stepson, Riza Aziz, is being investigated by F.B.I over the extraordinary purchase of luxury apartments worth hundreds of millions of ringgit.


Now, PM Najib’s in-law – notorious Maira Nazarbayev – has taken Razak family name to the next level of glory, if a report by New York Post is true. Apparently, Madam Maira ordered a dozen of Hermes handbags worth US$401,912.50 (£264,564; RM1.72 million) from the Financial District business Samilor in 2014 and 2015, but never paid.

Subsequently, in her attempt to recover the money owned, Samilor President Bella Belkin warned Maira Nazarbayev of legal action. Amazingly, not only Maira didn’t bother to pay nor intimidated by the lawsuit threat, she allegedly threatened the business owner – “You know who my son is! He is son-in-law of the prime minister of Malaysia! I will hurt you and your family if you sue me!”


Malaysian portal – MalaysiaKini – has obtained court documents filed with the Southern District of New York which appears to verify the New York Post report. In fact, Bella’s family, including her husband Edward Belkin and their children were threatened not once but at least three times by Maira since June 2015.

The second threat occurred 3-month later on Sept 30, 2015 during a meeting between Edward Belkin with Maira and his son Daniyar Kessikbayev, who married Nooryana Najwa, daughter of PM Najib. Maira threatened – “I am not paying you anything. You know what I can do. You know what I did in Kazakhstan. I will hurt you and your family.”


The third threat against the poor Belkin family was in the form of text messages on Oct 27, 2015, after Maira realized she would be sued. The text reads – “You don’t bother me and I won’t bother you, now I am quiet, but you will not calm down, don’t expect mercy from me, it will cost you a lot.”

The Belkins filed a criminal complaint with the local police and the F.B.I. (Federal Bureau of Investigation), most likely due to fear that Maira’s threat must be serious considering her notorious background. Maira was married to fertilizer tycoon Bolat Nazarbayev, brother of Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev.


After finding out Maira was still married to somebody else when they married in 2001, Mr. Bolat divorced her in 2009. Maira, however, refused to acknowledge the divorce. When their marriage was finally annulled in 2011, Bolat discovered, to his horror, that his ex-wife had conned him of his 4,000-square-foot Plaza apartment worth US$20 million.

Maira had also allegedly spent US$75 million of her ex-husband money on jewelry – purchased a very large quantity of jewellery from Jacob & Co. Coincidently, Jacob & Co. was the same New York-based jewellery firm that was linked to Rosmah Mansor’s RM24.4 million (then US$8 million) diamond ring fiasco back in 2011.


Interestingly, 2-year “after” the RM24 million diamond ring emerged its ugly headlines nationwide and roughly a month “before” the 13th general election, Jacob & Co. suddenly claimed that while it had shipped the ring to Malaysia for Rosmah, the wife of PM Najib Razak, she had only “inspected” the ring and had never purchased it.

Daniyar Nazarbayev and Nooryana Najwa - Engaged

Maira’s son Daniyar Nazarbayev and Rosmah’s daughter Nooryana Najwa were engaged on June 17, 2011. So, was Maira trying to make some commissions as middle woman by recommending Jacob & Co.’s jewellery to Rosmah? Or was Maira trying to get rid of her diamond ring (purchased with Bolat’s money) to Rosmah by asking the New York-based jewellery firm to front the transaction?


Mr. Bolat was furious because while he gave power of attorney to his ex-wife and stepson (Daniyar) to buy property in New York so he didn’t have to travel there personally, she had secretly named herself as co-owner of the US$20 million 4,000-square-foot Plaza apartment and sold it to her son Daniyar for US dollar $1.

In his lawsuit in Manhattan civil court in 2012 for US$100 million, it was also revealed that Maira had made Bolat’s girlfriends “disappeared without a trace”. Maira’s former secretary – Saule Arykbayeva – exposed that her former boss was a big-time crook with ties to organized crime, presumably the Russian Mafia, and a reputation for making her enemies go “missing”.


While Maira was accused as a crook with ties to Russian Mafia who would happily make her enemies “missing”, her son Daniyar Nazarbayev was no ordinary innocent school boy. Mr. Daniyar was called a “con man” for using his new last name Nazarbayev and forged documents saying he graduated from a high school in Kazakhstan to get into U.S. Columbia University.

You see, Maira had her son’s last name changed from Kesikbayev to Nazarbayev on his birth certificate after her marriage to Bolat Nazarbayev, an effort to cement Daniyar’s status as part of the first family of Kazakhstan. Unfortunately, the marriage didn’t work out and Bolat alleges his former stepson actually went to a high school in Switzerland but never graduated.


Eventually, Daniyar earned a degree from Columbia in 2010 and used his good looks to woo Nooryana Najwa, the daughter of Malaysia’s PM Najib Razak. When both of them finally married, their wedding raised millions of eyebrows because it was so extravagance that RM3 million alone had been spent for the flower decorations at the ceremony at KLCC.

Former premier Mahathir called it the “wedding of the century” and claimed PM Najib brought with him 300 people to his daughter’s wedding in Kazakhstan, all expenses paid. Under pressure, Najib regime conveniently claimed that the lavish wedding ceremony at KLCC was paid for entirely by the family of the groom – Daniyar Kesikbayev.


Here’s the interesting part – the court documents filed with Southern District of New York say both Maira and Daniyar bought the expensive Hermes bags as gifts for certain guests at Daniyar’s wedding. But if they could afford a multi-million dollar wedding ceremony, why would Maira make herself such a cheapskate woman who took 12 handbags without paying?

It’s comical that Maira and Daniyar could pay millions for three receptions of the wedding with PM Najib’s daughter – in Kuala Lumpur (March 28), in Pekan, Pahang (April 4) and in Almaty, Kazakhstan (April 18) – but chose to literally rob Bella and Edward Belkin of US$401,912.50. The worst part – they kept some of the Hermes bags for their personal use. What a bloody cheapskate con-in-law Najib Razak has.

Didn’t the saying goes as ” birds of a feather flock together ” ?
Crooks will always associate with conmen/conwomen, thieves and robbers.

It’s fine that the crooks flock together. But for the crooks to be so cheapskate is beyond basic comprehension.

At least Rosmah didn’t take her favourite birkin bags without paying. To be a respectable crook, one must show some “standards” and “dignity” … 🙂
