We have been lied to. The PM and his cheer on boys and girls lied to us. Now, there is no one left to lie. Perhaps they will start lying to each other. Sadly, the majority of us are the ones hoodwinked. As the saying goes, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, fool me thrice, I am an idiot.
The majority of Malaysians believed all the money that got into Najib’s account, that went into the accounts of Jho Low, of Tarek Obaid, Patrick Mahony, Prince Turki, Khadem al Qubaisi, Badawy al Husseini, got into all the accounts of those who aided and abetted these people came from only one source- 1MDB.
The other possibility was that the money was physically placed on board of several planes and then transported to the donor.
The answer is no and cannot be. Every financial transaction requires his stamp of approval. And the proof of his approval is his signature, his signature carries his stamp of approval.
So, forget about the lawyer’s inclination at verbal semantics in trying to trivialise the significance and full import of a signature. We must not allow our intelligence to be insulted.
If anything were to go wrong, the people behind the businesses of 1MDB can fall back on the government especially the MOF to bail them out. And that is what they are going to do.
