Hasanah, the top spy girl of former Prime Minister Najib Razak is in deep trouble. The Malaysia’s ex-CIA Chief is as good as counting her days before being thrown into jail. Jane Bond “Hasanah”, arguably the most powerful woman in the intelligence community due to her extraordinary close relationship with Mr. Najib, is now alone fighting for her own survival.


Hasanah Abdul Hamid, the former head of Malaysia’s External Intelligence Organisation (MEIO) – equivalent to CIA – was Najib’s most trusted intelligence head until the ex-premier was unexpectedly ejected from office at the polls on May 9th. And then Kaboom! A letter from Hasanah to United States CIA soliciting for support for his boss Najib was leaked.


Najib cleverly played his “I don’t know” and “I’m not aware” cards, denying any knowledge whatsoever of the damning letter written to the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) seeking the US’ support for his administration in the 14th general election. Mr. Najib clearly knew the seriousness of the scandal as it involves the sovereignty of the country.

Ex-Prime Minister Najib Razak - World Biggest Crook

Inviting a foreign authority, especially the CIA, to enter Malaysia’s domestic affairs is an act of treasonous and treacherous at the highest degree. As Najib was washing his hands off the CIA letter, Hasanah said the contents of the letter were “nothing unusual”. She even lodged a police report on July 31, arguing that the letter were intelligence secrets which fall under the Official Secrets Act.


Amusingly, her lawyers were quite dumb too, urging police to investigate who leaked the letter, which was “highly classified”. Initially the foreign news media were not sure if there was such a letter to begin with. They thought it was just some rumours. Heck, some foreign journalists had even questioned if the letter was ever delivered in the first place.


But spy chief Hasanah and his lawyers, probably without them realizing it, have admitted not only the existence but also to the authenticity of the letter. That shows the intelligence agency chief wasn’t that intelligent after all. The straw that broke the camel’s back was surprisingly not about the letter but the discovery that Malaysia’s Jane Bond was nothing but a petty thief.

Hasanah Abdul Hamid – MEIO Spy Director General - Covered Face Being Charged

Covered her face with hands to prevent being photographed by journalists when arrested four days ago (Aug 29), 61-year-old Hasanah was remanded in custody over an alleged theft of funds intended to be used for the May’s historic general election. While transporting money to a secret location after Barisan Nasional lost the May 9th poll, her officers helped themselves to the cash.


But stealing some cash – reportedly about US$400,000 (RM1.6 million) – was just the icing on the cake. The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is reportedly investigating the possibility that spy chief Hasanah was involved in helping Najib misappropriating or laundering election funds – amounted to US$12 million – believed to be from 1MDB fund.


Together with seven others, including her former deputy, Hasanah was grilled for her role of bringing in cash through the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) sometime in mid-April, allegedly for the 14th general election. Sources told Malaysiakini portal that the funds originated from the Middle East. The rumour mill is churning news that fugitive Jho Low could be the source of those funds.

Yes, like drug mules, the puzzling question is why a spy agency was reduced to becoming “money mule” – trafficking cash to the tune of US$12 million to grease Najib’s election machinery. If it can be established that spy girl Hasanah had abused her power smuggling money from Middle East into Malaysia on behalf of Najib regime, this could be an explosive scandal.


And you know Hasanah is in such a deep shit when the same party she had worked for has decided to throw her under the bus. Pro-Najib cybertroopers, propagandists and bloggers now sing a different tune – that Najib’s most trusted spy chief was actually working for the CIA to topple previous Najib-led Barisan Nasional coalition government.


Suddenly, a Jane Bond whom everyone thought was so dumb she should not be allowed to own fish as pets is painted as a well-connected spy chief who commanded the respect from all the foreign intelligence agencies included American CIA and British MI5. Hasanah is being accused of deliberately feeding wrong intelligence to Najib, misled him into thinking he would win the 2018 general election.

When Hasanah lodged a police report on July 31, one of the first things she did was telling reporters that the letter she wrote to CIA had nothing to do with her boss, ex-PM Najib Razak. It appeared that although it was unbelievable she could have took the liberty to write the letter on her own, she has at least shown her loyalty by taking all the blame to save Mr. Najib.


Hasanah, despite making her best effort to shield Najib from further damage, is given a kick from behind by Najib’s propagandists. A new twist is being thrown to a simple story of Najib’s stealing and plundering, justifying that the CIA letter and US$12 million smuggled in from the Middle East were the work of Najib’s people as payback for her sabotage or betrayal against Najib.


Interestingly, UMNO supreme council member Lokman Noor Adam – Najib’s strongest supporter and loudest cheerleader – has given Hasanah a stab in the back, agreeing that the former spy chief’s letter to CIA “is a mistake that cannot be forgiven.” Mr. Lokman said – “Authorities must investigate. We cannot tolerate acts of treason.”

It seems that Lokman, as mouthpiece of Najib, has spoken on behalf of the former premier – that the chief of now defunct MEIO, a covert intelligence agency, had committed acts of treason. He also said the writing of the letter was absolute nonsense and terrible, and should not have been done.


Mr. Lokman said – “We cannot get any assistance from any foreign countries or foreign bodies to assist us to overthrow a leader or keep them in power.” Would Lokman and Najib’s paid cybertroopers, propagandists and bloggers say the same thing about Hasanah had CIA helped turn the table in favour of Najib regime? Most probably not.


Another reason Lokman cited for criticising (Hasanah) move was his so-called belief that the CIA was “deeply involved” in deposing Najib as prime minister. But how could everyone in Najib’s camp suddenly blame the super spy girl when her letter clearly proves her loyalty to Najib by soliciting a foreign power for political support for her own boss?

Treason Letter to CIA - Najib Razak and Hasanah Abdul Hamid

Still, Najib’s camp wouldn’t and couldn’t explain for whom Hasanah had smuggled the US$12 million cash from Middle East, if not for Najib Razak himself. Those money were used for Najib’s election campaign, were they not? Clearly, this is a simple case of ungrateful Najib’s camp distancing from the toxic, indefensible and too-hot-to-handle former spy chief caught trafficking money for Najib.
