I find it shocking and amusing that Gerakan Vice President Dominic Lau find it offensive with the remark Jho Low won the gold medal in the “running away with money” category.
Did Dominic Lau read the entire 251 pages of the latest court filing by Department of Justice(DOJ) in relation to 1MDB scandal that Jho Low has stolen Billions of Malaysian Taxpayers money?
No Malaysian would expect Gerakan to speak up against the 42 Billion Mega 1MDB scandal. However, Gerakan should at least have the decency not to defend the indefensible.
In his statement, Dominic Lau said the following,
“From the beginning, Gerakan’s stance on the 1MDB issue has been neutral. We trust the outcome of investigations by the law enforcement agencies and insist those who have broken the law to face punishment.”
Dominic Lau’s statement that Gerakan is neutral on the 1MDB issue is an inference that Gerakan will stay silent and condone the robbers and thieves to rob Malaysian taxpayers’ money. How can Gerakan trust the law enforment agencies when key personnels investigating the 1MDB scandal has been ousted or forced to retire early? These key personnels include the former AG Tan Sri Apandi, former Bank Negara Governor Tan Sri Zeti and former MACC Chief Tan Sri Abu Kassim?
Let me reply Dominic Lau with a famous quote by Desmond Tutu,
“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.”
The DOJ legal document in Paragraphs 339 to 348 allege that US$681 Million was transferred from the Tanore account to an account belonging to Malaysian Official 1.
The Tanore account belongs to Eric Tan Kim Loong, a known alias by Jho Low. UMNO Minister Abdul Rahman Dahlan in a BBC interview has also confirmed that Prime Minister Najib is MO1. He has also said anyone that doesn’t know who is MO1 is an idiot.
The allegation by DOJ that the US$681 Million was transferred from the Tanore account has torn the lies by Najib about the 2.6 Billion donation into pieces.
I challenge Dominic Lau to openly state Gerakan’s stand in relation to the US$681 Million transferred into Prime Minister Najib personal bank account which originated from 1MDB funds.
Will Dominic Lau pretend that he doesn’t know who is MO1, thus becoming the idiot that Abdul Rahman mentioned?
