Saudi Foreign Minister's statement is a "no statement"
Does the statement by the Saudi foreign Minister clear Najib and the "Donation"issue?
|Issued A calculated ambiguous press statement, seemingly meant meant to appease UMNO politicians|
How can such an ambiguous statement made by the Saudi Foreign minister be deemed conclusive in such a huge case of alleged embezzlement by the Prime Minister.
That statement by the Foreign minister of Saudi Arabia Adel al-Jubeir, raises more questions for the Police and the MACC to follow up on, to either clear or prosecute Najib rather than clear Najib of the allegations of fraud outright as the Attorney General is again trying to do.
The attorney-general Mohamad A pandi Ali must be the first to spot it. His competence is certainly in question, he of all persons should have been able to spot the ambiguities in the statements and he should have directed the agencies immediately, but rather the reverse seems to be happening.
Najib probably knew who he was hiring for the position of Attorney General of Malaysia when he chose Apandi.
Now was the statement to the press made by the donor?
Did Adel al-Jubeir claim to be the donor?
Is the attorney-general Mohamad A pandi Ali deliberately trying to mislead Malaysians and clear Najib?
That really seems to be the case here he is deliberately trying to deceive Malaysians.
Let us look closely and understand what the Saudi foreign minister is reported to have said, whether he really said what is reported also becomes a matter of contention and I'll explain as we go along.
The Gulf Times quotes the Saudi foreign Minister using what is reported by Bernama, it is strange that the Gulf Times was not present at the press conference.
The same applies here too Reuters the news agency of the world also quotes the minister as reported by Bernama there was no Reuters reporter around.
The BBC report also quotes Bernama.
"Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, speaking to reporters at a summit in Istanbul, confirmed this, according to Malaysian state news agency Bernama." ......from the BBC report
Everything seems to be coming from Bernama was this news conference at an international Islamic Conference only given to Bernama by the Saudi Foreign Minister?
Even the Gulf Times a prominent English paper in the Arabian gulf region was left out it had to quote Bernama and so too was Reuters and what more, then at an International conference in Turkey.
Is this an exclusive Bernama story?
And if so why only Bernama?
Malaysians know only too well how the government control its agencies and the mass media, to the extent they are now moving to control even blogs and FB postings.
The Saudi foreign minister is quoted to have said he is "aware" that is just it.
We are not told if he knows for certain who made that donation, he is only "aware" and there is a difference of being aware and knowing for certain.
After all Najib has been visiting Saudi Arabia so often, he has been seeing the officials of the Saudi government and he Najib could have told them who "DONATED" that money to him and they could have accepted what or could they be in concert with him for other reasons, to toe the line of the Saudis in the power wars of the middle east for instance, playing the ISIL game.
Najib could well have also taken an Oath in a mosque in Saudi Arabia to convince the Saudi authorities. We really do not know I am just speculating after all he has done it in the a past.
Adel al- Jubeir's February Story
The Matter is closed
Who is the Saudi foreign minister to decide the matter as closed?
To understand that, we need to know what he means by the, "matter is closed".
Well what he is telling everyone is that he is telling no more l#&s "the matter is closed" as far as the Saudis are concerned, he seems to be saying rather politely to Najib and his gang and the International press "for goodness sake do not drag us into this anymore we are finished with this."
He is "aware" of what he was saying and that is why he passes the buck to Malaysia and Apandi when he says
“We are also fully aware that the attorney general of Malaysia has thoroughly investigated the matter and found no wrongdoing,”
Here he seems to throw scorn on the Attorney General of Malaysia - Apandi - he seems to understand the position taken by the Malaysian Attorney General; that is why he refers to the AG having investigated the case, he being the foreign minister of Saudi Arabia is fully aware of Apandi's appointment and under what circumstances, after all 1MDB is fully on the Saudi fadar screen and the person who'll be watching it is the Foreign Ministry. So now he passes that to Apandi as though to say it is your baby.
Well all Malaysians know that the Apandi did not investigate the case at all. We also know that it was Gani Patail who was up to the mark as far as investigations go and it was when Patail was about to charge Najib he was sacked.
He is aware of it, he is not saying anything more, all Malaysians are also aware that Apandi never investigated the issue.
So who made him aware of this?
We all know only too well that Apandi just went through documents and was fast to clear Najib , and now in light of this report released exclusively by Bernama most probably, he has now seized the opportunity in what looks like an attempt to deceive the Malaysian public if the Malaysiakini report is right where he comes out this time and says; there is no need for further investigation.
“This is because there is already a statement from the donor, so what is there left to be investigated,”........Apandi
