Penang Chief Minister Has No Choice But To Sue BN Media Such As New Straits Times And BN’s Strategic Communications Deputy Director For  Malicious And Vicious Lies That Lim Guan Eng Made Veiled Threats Against Penangites That His Imprisonment Would Affect Penang’s i-sejahtera Welfare Programme.

Penang Chief Minister has no choice but to sue BN media such as New Straits Times And BN’s Strategic Communications Deputy Director for  malicious and vicious lies reporting that Lim Guan Eng made veiled threats against Penangites that his imprisonment would affect Penang’s i-sejahtera welfare programme. In the New Straits Times report today,

 

July 1st, “Face charges instead of issuing ‘veiled threats’ against Penangites, BN tells Guan Eng

Barisan Nasional Strategic Communications (BNSC) deputy director Eric See-To urged Lim to face his corruption charges head-on without trying to “spin” the stories surrounding the case.

According to a news report, Penang CM had warned that his prosecution for corruption puts the state administration’s welfare programmes on the line and that the needy in Penang will suffer.

BNSC strongly condemns this veiled threat which we see as an attempt for Guan Eng to mock and undermine our legal system.

Penang is bigger than Lim and the Chief Minister should stop having this inflated opinion about himself,” he said in a statement today.

Lim earlier today claimed that Penang folk were angry that a leader of a clean government has been charged with corruption and were afraid that his incarceration would affect the state’s i-Sejahtera welfare programme.”

 

Lim Guan Eng had never made such a statement or a speech yesterday in the DAP Penang Hari Raya Aidilfitri Open House in Jawi, Nibong Tebal. Defamatory action will be taken against BN media and BNSC Deputy Director.

The BN Federal government is trying to use their persecution of Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng with baseless corruption charges to cover-up global kleptocracy of USD 4.5 billion misappropriated from 1MDB by M01 and high-level Malaysian officials. According to the Department of Justice (DOJ) of the United States, the USD 4.5 billion involves public funds including USD 731 million deposited in the bank accounts of Malaysian Prime Minister. Out of this humongous amount of USD 4.5 billion misappropriated, USD1.7 billion was expended in the United States.

The purchase of property, luxury yachts, airplanes, artworks, expensive jewellery, including pink diamonds to the wife of M01 involving USD1.7 billion are the subject of the United States government’s Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation. The remainder USD2.8 billion was used outside the United States and not within the purview of DOJ investigations. DOJ also attempts to recover USD 400 million from Jho Low and USD 25 million from Riza Aziz, who is the step-son of the Prime Minister.

Prominent actor Leonardo di Caprio has returned gifts from Jho Lo. So too Australian supermodel, Miranda Kerr, who returned USD 8.8 million of diamond jewellery given by Jho Lo when he was courting her. If actors and supermodels have the decency, moral integrity and honesty to return gifts, yet BN leaders fall short despite claims of being moral, religious or ethical, by refusing to return what they have stolen from 1MDB and the Malaysian people.

As for the corruption charges against the Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng over the purchase of his residence, he has said that the charges were politically motivated to destroy his political career. Lim had bought the property from a bank loan and his income without involving a single cent of public funds.

Further Lim had stated previously that he would also prove in court that the seller did not get any benefit from selling the property to Lim, as she has no business relationship with the state government. The political persecution against Lim by the BN government is evident when Lim is also charged for contempt of court relating to his corruption case.

在我国首相兼国阵主席拿督斯里纳吉个人户头的26亿令吉献金“人人有份”被揭发后,国阵成员党中有人直接承认接受相关款项,但却有人则指这是抵赖,马上否认相关献金的存在。就此,林冠英促请纳吉说明并向全国人民清楚交代,究竟这笔献金从哪里来?国阵除了巫统外,其他成员党诸如马华、民政党、国大党及人联党等,究竟从中获得多少钱?

随着“砂拉越报告”揭发,首相纳吉在上届大选通过私人银行户头汇款给多个国阵成员党。而这笔献金被指是来自一马发展公司(1MDB)属下的SRC国际私人有限公司。纳吉由始至终不曾否认这项报告。

根据媒体报导指,雪州马华曾在第13届大选是从纳吉户头得到千万令吉资金。马华雪州联委会分别是在2013年4月8日和24日获得500万令吉,总数1000万令吉。但马华总会长廖中莱随后却坚决否认,睁眼指马华不曾收到任何款项。公正党副主席兼班登区国会议员拉菲兹同时也揭发伊斯兰党前署理主席纳沙鲁丁曾获得一马发展公司的资金。

而国大党主席拿督斯里苏巴马念就承认,国阵曾拨出款项各成员党作为竞选基金。他说,每一次大选,从国阵获得选举资金很正常。受询及选举资金是否来自纳吉私人户头,苏巴马念含糊推搪说自己一知半解。

另外,巫统最高理事拿督斯里纳兹里早前也直接承认,他作为硝山区部主席,纳吉给巫统每个支部5000令吉,以维修家园用途。而他获得约100万令吉。他也指出,纳吉从这笔政治献捐中动用了9900万令吉,作为上届大选经费。而他补充说,纳吉共花了6亿令吉,而这些资金都用在竞选期。

日前,马华前总会长敦林良实也说,在他领导马华期间,是不曾获得时任首相敦马哈迪的金钱援助。以往马华是自己筹款,他觉得马华领导层有足够的智慧,知道要如何来处理此事。今非昔比,这足以证明现在的马华和敦林良实时代不同,现在的马华只能依赖着纳吉。

马来西亚人有权知道这些政治拨款的来龙去脉是什么回事?而马华是否曾经收取大笔政治资金?这也让马来西亚人看到,原来国阵成员党上下,巫统、马华、民政党、国大党及人联党都是26亿献金的获益单位,也难怪他们一直对1MDB舞弊案视若无睹噤若寒蝉。

我国首相兼国阵主席拿督斯里纳吉有必要马上向人民交代清楚,其私人户头26亿令吉献金的用途和去处。
