TMI - Full force of the law against those trying to harm Malaysia, Zahid warns

don't f* around with my legacies

The Home Ministry and Royal Malaysian Police will not hesitate to use the full force of the law against individuals who attempt to harm Malaysia's economy and democratic process.

Its minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said over the past months, there appeared to be attempts to undermine confidence in the Malaysian economy and the country's democratically elected government.

"This can be a threat to national security.”

Zahid said the main source of these allegations were from data allegedly stolen by an individual who had been detained and was now under investigation for attempted extortion.

"An independent international cyber security firm, Protection Group International (PGI), has confirmed the theft and said that the information published should be considered unsafe and unreliable.”

"Various media reports are found quoting unverified documents.

"Are they authentic? Do they even exist? Who are the unnamed investigators who supposedly traced movements of money?"

The home minister said allegations and insinuations were being made against the prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

"This is irresponsible and reckless journalism, and bordering on criminal offence.”

Tell me he is NOT warning/threatening you-know-who, wakakaka.

This gets more and more interesting as the harimaus bare their fangs and unsheath their claws. 

Remember, there can be NO two tigers on one mountain.

OTOH, is Najib nothing more than a puddy-tat? Wakakaka.

am gonna eat you up, you bl**dy Bugis bird 

MALAYSIA EXCLUSVE!!! How PGI track down Justo and blow the lid off Sarawak Report

Lord: "Responsible media outlets check their sources ..."

While we wait for Prime Minister Najib Razak to send the Letter of Demand to WSJ over money from 1MDB in his personal accounts, find out how a London-based group of cyber security experts with 20 years of experience and over a thousand forensic cases to their names painstakingly tracked down Xavier Justo and the Sarawak Report and the trail of "tampered" emails and "faked" documents used against thier client [not 1MDB or Najib].

PETALING JAYA, July 5 — Protection Group International (PGI) managing director Brian Lord said Sarawak Report’s information on the alleged impropriety in PetroSaudi International Ltd’s aborted joint venture with 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) was “inconsistent” and “unreliable”.
Speaking to Malay Mail, he said there were inconsistencies between the original information and what was published by the blog. He also revealed the cyber security firm was hired by PetroSaudi to investigate the source of the data published online and verify its authenticity.
“When one does the compare and contrast of the data in the systems with the one in Sarawak Report, there are inconsistencies,” Lord said.
He said if an individual believes a wrongdoing had occured, he could report the matter to the authorities in Malaysia, Switzerland or United Kingdom or take it to an established media.
“But he (arrested Swiss national Xavier Justo) didn’t do that.
“Having gone through the process of trying to extort money from the former employer with threats to leak the data and being refused, he (Justo) could have still gone to the authorities had there been any wrong doing. But he chose to go to Sarawak Report.
“I am not making any comment on the political persuasion of Sarawak Report but he chose to take it to that kind of blog site. So even before we move on to the forensics, any information that he presented to the public after that process has to be treated with a huge amount of caution,” said Lord who has more than 20 years experience in cyber security.
Lord added investigations by PGI revealed Sarawak Report had a “subtract of some emails chain and some documentation”. He, however, stopped short of divulging the contents of the emails and data Sarawak Report received.
“It is a combination of all those three things; inconsistency between the original and published reports, substitutable communication and the whole private information claim into Sarawak Report … I can firmly say the information is unreliable and, therefore, it is unfair for anybody to draw judgments on it.”
Justo, a former PetroSaudi executive, was arrested in Thailand last month after he was alleged to have leaked information to Sarawak Report. He was being investigated for extortion and blackmailing his former employer.
Justo had allegedly attempted to blackmail and extort as much as 2.5 million Swiss Francs (RM10 million) from PetroSaudi  two years after he was dismissed from the company. He also allegedly threatened to release confidential business information, purportedly stolen from the company, if his demands were not met.
Following the attempted blackmail, various emails and documents were published by Sarawak Report, sparking criticism against 1MDB.
According to Lord, investigations into the case were led by two analysts who between them had worked on at least 1,000 forensic cases.
“These are people who are highly-regarded specialist in what they do. They have investigated all types of cases involving all types of background. When it comes to the validity and velocity of the company, they have vast experience,” he said.
In stressing the firm’s independence, Lord said investigations were conducted in a controlled environment with no access granted to anyone outside of the forensic investigators, with devices obtained from those involved kept in a forensic laboratory.
“Nobody else, including the client, has access to the laboratory where the investigations are conducted. It is key for the investigations to be uncontaminated. In this particular case, we still have the devices under our custody until every line of investigation related to this has ended.”
He said the forensic analysis into this case could take up to six months.
“That leads back to the point of depending on what level of granularity the process requires and whether that is inclined to a subsequent legal process. That leads to a point where there are things that we can say and can’t,” he added.
● On a company spokesman quoted by an English daily
“Clients want a clear, unambiguous and unbiased view of what the investigations will show. We are obliged to adhere to certain standards on how we operate. Forensics investigations can take a long time depending on what level of information is required. At that point thereof, where there is a complete lack of clarity over things, that requires a public statement. But we will only make statements which we are sure we can validate. In forensics investigations, there are points that can be established quite quickly and there are things that require more time to go into deeper analysis. But there are certain points throughout the investigation where things will become clear and if it does help clarify the situation, particularly in the case like this where a lot of it is being played up in public domain, sometimes it (a statement) can be helpful for both parties.”
● On the implication of such articles
“Responsible media outlets such as newspapers check their sources, the validity of such sources and information as well as the motive of the sources before an editorial decision is made to publish. That is a sensible, matured decision. If a blogging site is considered as an independent voice, then it has to do the same thing and if it chooses to just publish random information obtained, then it has no right to be taken seriously. I support the Sarawak Report’s right to publish whatever political opinion they have … people have different opinions, but the point remains how seriously would it take itself if it gets hold of data obtained inappropriately and chooses to publish it in that way, editorialising it to meet political ends. Freedom of speech comes with responsibility.”

Shahbudin: No fair probe on WSJ if PM not on leave

The DPM was going all over the place on the WSJ report and evading the crux of the issue to facilitate a fair and impartial investigation.
KUALA LUMPUR: A political analyst sees the statements attributed to Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, in the wake of a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report that directly implicates Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak in alleged wrongdoing, as not going far enough. He implied that Najib has lost the moral high ground in the wake of the allegations, while at the same time Muhyiddin had yet to seize it.
In fact, he added that Muhyiddin was evading the crux of the issue after he had conceded that his boss was facing allegations which were of a very personal and private nature. “It’s not enough for him to ask Najib to issue a statement explaining the WSJ allegations, since it was of a very personal and private nature, and that they should be investigated by the authorities concerned.”
He acknowledged like Muhyiddin that Najib had yet to confirm, for example, whether he holds the bank accounts mentioned in the WSJ report and whether certain extraordinarily large funds entered these accounts.
He wonders whether anyone would be impressed by the Attorney General’s statement, in response to Muhyiddin’s comments, disclosing that a Task Force had raided three companies allegedly linked to the allegations against Najib in the WSJ report.
Any investigation of the WSJ report that nearly USD700 million entered the personal banking accounts of the Prime Minister hinges on him going on leave, spelled out Shahbudin Husin starkly in his latest blog posting. “There are no two ways about it.”
“If Muhyiddin can’t ask Najib to go on leave, then no one else can with any degree of effectiveness. He was right to say that Najib can later summon WSJ if investigations proved that its reporting was baseless.”
Still, the analyst said that the Deputy Prime Minister cannot pretend not to know that it would be extremely difficult for the investigating agencies – the Attorney General’s Chambers, Bank Negara, the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC), the Auditor-General’s Office, and the police – to work with any degree of independence if Najib, the subject of the investigations, was refusing to go on leave. “These agencies already have their Task Force to work together and they can’t be expected to report to Najib on his alleged wrongdoing.”
Again, he queries why Muhyiddin didn’t ask Najib to go on leave just as in the Mara case recently, and in other cases in the past involving for example Umno Youth Chief Rahim Tamby Chik in 1994. “The issue in both these cases was corruption and the personal nature of the allegations. Rahim returned to his post after his name was cleared.”
“Najib going on leave was not a new suggestion,” concedes the analyst. “It has been made in the past when the authorities concerned started their investigations into the RM42 billion scandal-ridden 1MDB.”
However, he reiterated, what makes the situation different this time and has certain urgency was the very personal and private nature of the allegations against Najib. “The WSJ report alleges, I reiterate, that nearly USD700 million entered his personal bank accounts with AmBank.”
Muhyiddin as the number two in the government, pointed out Shahbudin, was the right person to advise Najib to go on leave. “If not, the investigations into the WSJ report would have no meaning, and would not convince the people.”
In short, the bottomline was that Najib cannot continue to head the government when he himself was the subject of the investigations by the very authorities concerned who also report to him. “How would any such investigation with Najib still around as Prime Minister and Finance Minister be seen to be fair in the eyes of the people?”
The investigations, he continued, would proceed smoothly without any hint of interference, in Najib’s absence. “It would be a just outcome for all parties concerned.”
Instead of making the right call, the analyst again noted that Muhyiddin has been going all over the places, seeming to make the right noises but keeping himself safe as usual from any possible political retribution that could come his way.
Shahbudin agreed that the Deputy Prime Minister didn’t make himself look foolish like the other Ministers, who probably fearing for their own future, were too quick to rubbish the WSJ report which the newspaper itself has defended as accurate and based on the government’s own investigations.

Razali: Don’t question government dress code

Opposition can introduce own dress codes...can public wear shorts to meet CM or MB, he says.
MUAR: Razali Ibrahim, a deputy minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, has urged Opposition politicians and others not to question the dress codes enforced at government offices.
He said the matter should not be questioned or politicised. The dress codes were aimed at ensuring the people were well mannered and disciplined when visiting government offices.
“The existing dress code does not only apply to people of certain races but to all,” Razali said after chairing a Muar Umno meeting today.
“If the Opposition does not agree with the dress code, they can introduce their own dress code in their states. We want to see if the public can wear shorts when meeting their chief minister and menteri besar,” he said.
Several women, including a reporter, were blocked from entering government buildings in recent weeks because of objections to their attire.
Razali said such action was appropriate as a way to educate people, because the dress code was in accordance with the country’s fifth principle of the Rukun Negara – Kesopanan dan Kesusilaan (Courtesy and Morality).
“Later on we don’t want anyone to come to the government offices wearing only bikini or to strip naked in public,” he said.
He said the dress code should not be relaxed merely because some refused to comply and had sparked controversy on social media while millions of the country’s citizens respected it.
