I haven’t said much about the RM2.6 billion money that was donated through a vehicle bearing Najib Razak’s name. What I know for sure is that the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission sent three officers to meet up with the source of the donation or the donor’s agent. I also mentioned on other socmed posts that the Attorney-General has every right to not indict any case that is forwarded to his office as per Article 145(3) of the Federal Constitution.
Many cry foul, till today, but could never come up with arguments based on legal facts, including (I don’t feel sorry for this) idiots who think that by being in the MACC they know everything. They simply don’t. So, let’s visit the facts.
- Najib Razak received a political donation equivalent to RM2.6 billion,
- The money was received through a private account bearing Najib Razak’s name.
- The Constitution of a political party that was approved under the Societies Act allows a political party to receive political donations;
- Najib Razak received the donation as the Head of a political party, not as the Prime Minister or as Najib Razak the individual. To those who carry signs bearing the words “Mana RM2.6 billion” I say up yours, the money is NOT for you.
- Therefore, based on the facts given by paragraphs 1 and 2, there is no burden of law on Najib Razak for receiving the money.
- The Anti Money Laundering Act (AMLA) is a law to control monetary transactions. Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) would have to approve those transactions.
- In Najib’s case, BNM had already approved the transaction. Therefore, BNM has to abide by the law, terms and regulations pertaining to the law.
- Approval of that transaction also means the transaction is free from any burden of the law.
Based on the facts above I opine that the Attorney-General had made the correct decision and everyone should give it a rest.
Now I hope someone would tell the Attorney-General to dig up this particular issue that I believe was buried by someone under the instruction of someone else:
