SHAMED MALAYSIA


1.   I was censured by Anifah Aman, the Foreign Minister, that I shamed Malaysia by giving an interview to an American newspaper "The New York Times.

2.   Maybe Anifah never read American newspaper before and trying to tarnish my name by making it a basic to protect Prime Minister Najib. But the whole world knows about Dato Sri Najib, Jho Low and 1MDB. Famous newspapers in Washington, New York and London have published a lengthy article that occupied four pages about 1MDB scandal, Najib and his luxury lifstyle, his best friend Jho Low and his step son, Riza Aziz who financed a porn film title "The Wolf of Wall Street".

3.   A study by foreign experts claimed that Malaysia is one of top ten most corrupt country.

4.   But Anifah is not ashamed with these reports. There isn't even a single word about this from him.

5.   All these reports tarnishing Malaysia was made long before I critise Dato Sri Najib.

6.   If Anifah knows the meaning of shame, he would have felt ashamed when these newspapers reports about Malaysia. He should have questioned Najib about the scandals and reports in foreign medias. He should have advised Dato Sri Najib about his friendship with Jho Low and forbid his step son from acting as a whealthy man.

7.   In other countries, this kind of scandal which implicate a leader would have the leader resign and apologise. But in Malaysia, there are people protecting the leader without any reason, only for the purpose of safeguarding own position.

8.   In reality, Dato Sri Najib is the one who shamed Malaysia with his 1MDB. Before this, Malaysia never been ridiculed by unanswered accusations like now.
