Najib’s ultimatum to cabinet

The prime minister merely told us the need to stand together and anything decided must be of one voice. PM said if there are ministers who are not comfortable with the 1MDB issue, they can send their (resignation) letters, and he would understand. It wasn't (like the kind of tone) that you don't like, you can go.

Nazri Aziz, Tourism and Culture Minister, denying that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak issued an ultimatum to cabinet ministers over the 1MDB issue


Agree (with the ultimatum) with conditions 1) rationalisation of 1MDB,  2) accountability if there is wrongdoing, and 3), transparency on (conditions 1 and 2).

Hishamuddin Hussein, Defence Minister, clarifying that his support for Prime Minister Najib Razak’s ultimatum that ministers either resign or support his rehabilitation measures for 1Malaysia Development Bhd was based on three conditions


Have they accepted collective responsibility for the 1MDB scandal to 'sink or swim' with Najib on the issue?

Deaths at Future Music Festival Asia

Generally, the police did not show much interest in the reports. Unfortunately, they made statements without proper scientific reasons, which is not the right way.

MAS restructuring

We need to buy better and cheaper. We have 13,000 vendors where in a normal scenario, it should only be around 2,000.

Statements from certain people does not reflect the true picture in PAS. We will not destroy what we have built ourselves.

Mustafa Ali, PAS secretary general, stressing that PAS would stay put with Pakatan Rakyat regardless of who wins in the party polls



1MDB probe

I would place my faith in PAC more than the Auditor-General. Auditors just inspect books, they don’t do forensic auditing. They don’t try to poke and find out where was the money spent, how was it spent, where did you lose this money, etcetera. They merely check on the books so they will not discover much, people who are doing the books may be very clever people.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad, expressing more confidence towards Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) than in the Auditor-General in tracing the billions of ringgits that 1Malaysia Development Berhad allegedly lost
