Sirul’s mother

This is a humanitarian mission for a mother who misses her son. If Sirul wants to tell me anything that will be up to him.

1MDB’s fund

PetroSaudi stated categorically that funds from 1MDB went to Petrosaudi-owned entitites and any other inference is false. Upon 1MDB's exit, PetroSaudi had paid 1MDB in full and both parties no longer have any financial or legal relationship.

Views expressed by certain quarters concerning 1MDB should be examined in light of political motivation. However, if any wrongdoing is proven, the law will be enforced without exception.

Najib cannot continue to evade the issue and I call on him to set up a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the RM42 billion 1MDB scandal, and in particular at (sic) the Sarawak Report that it has obtained access to thousands of documents and email relating to the transactions of 1MDB. If the RM42 billion 1MDB scandal is not handled in a responsible and satisfactory manner, we may have the the first resignation or removal of a Prime Minister in Malaysia because of a financial scandal.

Fewer Chinese for BN

This level of Chinese support for Najib shows that there is hope yet for him to claw back some Chinese support, as there are some segments of the Chinese community who are so forgiving and submissive that they are willing to let Najib come to his senses by focusing on the economy.

The currency market sentiment is anxious about 1MDB’s debt which has largely contributed to the reluctance of international investors to hold the ringgit currency, causing its value to continually fall against the US dollar. If Najib blamed the global crude oil market for fluctuation in fuel prices, he should be fully responsible for the fluctuation of the ringgit’s value.

Najib’s fate

Let me repeat that. Pak Lah fell not because of the opposition but because his own party turned on him. Najib will also fall not because of the opposition but because his own party turns on him.
