Najib’s family rift?

Unless PMO makes an about turn and denies making a statement to the NYT about Najib’s so-called inheritance, it stands accused of tainting the memory of that great man.

A Kadir Jasin, former New Straits Times group editor-in-chief, on New York Times’s Feb 9 front-page which quoted the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) attributing Najib’s expenditure, including the multi-million dollar purchases of his wife’s jewellery, to his inheritance

Mahfuz Omar, PAS information chief, telling DAP MP Gobind Singh Deo and other DAP lawmakers to oppose PAS’ push for the implementation of hudud in parliament

Ahmad Maslan, Deputy Finance Minister
