KUALA LUMPUR: Hong Kong police have confirmed that they are investigating a report lodged against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak in the former British Crown Colony by Khairuddin Abu Hassan, a rebel Umno leader who was sacked recently as Umno Batu Kawan deputy divisional chief on the RM42 billion 1MDB scandal.
The Financial Times (FT) reported that Hong Kong police have confirmed receiving the report lodged by Khairuddin and are investigating its contents. Khairuddin has also made a similar report in Switzerland which is being investigated, according to FT.
The FT quoted a Malaysian Government spokesman as denouncing the report lodged by Khairuddin as “baseless and politically motivated lies”. It appears that Najib is looking at his legal options to stop those with “malicious intent” to “smear and discredit” him.
Briefly, the police reports in two sets requested the Hong Kong authorities to investigate what transactions, if any, between three companies owned by Jho Low and family had with 1MDB which has reportedly accumulated debts totaling RM42 billion at last count within five years.
Four other companies are also suspect, added Khairuddin, because Najib is a signatory here and the accounts of the companies show that a total of RM1.125 billion has been kept at the Hong Kong branch of Credit Suisse. “I have requested the Hong Kong police to conduct comprehensive and detailed investigations on the financial sources of the companies concerned and their transactions.”
“I requested the authorities concerned to investigate Alliance Assets International Ltd; Cityfield Enterprises Ltd; Bartingale International Ltd; Wonder Quest Investments Ltd. All these companies have Najib as the signatory.”
Khairuddin, at the same time, also lodged another set of police reports on Jynwell Capital (HK); Jynwell Charitable Foundation; and Strategic Resources (Global Ltd), all owned by Jho Low and family.
Khairuddin explained that he lodged the police reports in Hong Kong because he wants the authorities concerned abroad to conduct comprehensive and detailed investigations on wrongdoing by parties in Malaysia. “These authorities will be able to launch such investigations away from Najib’s interference and meddling. The focus is on 1MDB and to help bring the suspects involved to justice.”
He lamented that he had lost faith in investigations conducted in Malaysia by the police, Bank Negara and the Attorney- General. “Ghostly hands, by remote control, have interfered with these investigations.”
He vowed that when the government in Putrajaya changes hands in the near future, before GE14 in 2018, the officials in these investigating bodies complicit with Najib on covering up wrongdoing in 1MDB “would pay for their misdeeds”.
“These are traitors to the people, God and the country.”
