Nik Nazmi wants Putrajaya to reveal ‘MO1’

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 8:00 PM

Nik-NazmiPKR wants the Federal Government to confirm whether allegations in the US Department of Justice (DoJ) lawsuit related to 1MDB are true. “If so, how did this chain of events (in the lawsuit) come about,” stressed PKR Youth Chief Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad in a statement.

The people deserve full and unequivocal disclosure from the Federal Government, he said. “All the facts on the case should be laid out.”

He pointed out the suit named specific individuals who have the right to defend themselves. “There’s no implication, as far as one can tell, against the Malaysian government.”

The best way would be to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, he added. “However, Umno Youth Chief Khairy Jamaluddin wishes to defend the Prime Minister, even if he’s called a ‘macai’ by doing so.”

He urged the government to identify and/or reveal, for starters, the “Malaysian Official 1” (MO1) mentioned in the lawsuit. “He has been variously described in the lawsuit.”

Nik Nazmi was referring to the lawsuit describing MO1 as a senior government official, a person of authority in 1MDB, a relative of Riza Aziz — who was named in the suit — and allegedly the recipient of “an exorbitant amount of money through 1MDB dealings”.

The DoJ, as an agency of a sovereign government, was within its rights to take the civil forfeiture and recovery action, said the PKR Youth Chief. “The DoJ wants to protect the US’ interests based on the facts in the suit.”

All the DoJ has done was to present the facts with detailed evidence, said Nik Nazmi. “If Putrajaya believes it has been unfairly treated, all the government needs to do is to rebut the facts.”

FMT Reporters


  1. ABC Australia reports that Malaysia surrendered special rights to Luconia Shoals to China : Rights to adjoining EEZ may be lost

    ABC TV reported on Sunday 7 August an incident on or about 31 August 2015 when Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency(Agensi Penguatkuasaan Maritim Malaysia) officers removed a Malaysian flag that had been planted on Luconia Shoals by Australian marine archaeologist Hans Berekoven.

    The planting of the flag itself has been reported before (see below) but it was only yesterday that Berekoven revealed on ABC TV that a MMEA Bombardier surveillance plane flew over after he planted the flag, and that MMEA officers then came on to the shoal and removed the Malaysian flag.

    By doing so the Malaysian Government has signalled that it will not enforce its hitherto exclusive right to administer and enjoy the economic zone on and around Luconia Shoal. Given that China has been asserting what it says is its right to the shoal (and the entire South China Sea) ,it follows that China can now enjoy equal if not greater right to the shoal and the surrounding economic zone.
