KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 25 — Malaysians are wondering why the Former Prime Minister Najib Razak, who is accused of mega crimes of corruption and money laundering, is still free, the Veteran DAP Leader Lim Kit Siang said yesterday.
“Many Malaysians are very disappointed that Najib, who had brought infamy and ignominy to Malaysia with his 1MDB as well as other 1MDB-liked corruption scandals in Felda, Felcra, Maraand Tabung Haji, turning Malaysia into an international butt of jokes as a global kleptocracy, is not paying for his corruption and crimes in Sungai Buloh Prison but is allowed to strut all over the country in his Malu Apa Bossku campaign,” he said in a ceramah at Semenyih yesterday.
However, the Iskandar Puteri MP added that Malaysians should also be patient in allowing the legal process to take place in bringing criminals and culprits to justice, the MalayMail quoted him as saying.
Lim also called voters to reject UMNO and Barisan Nasional (BN) in Semenyih by-election so that Datuk Seri Najib Razak will not have a chance to make any political comeback.
“The March 2 by-election provides an excellent opportunity for the people of Semenyih to declare loud and clear they do not want Najib to make a political comeback and least of all, as Malaysian prime minister,” he said.
Since he was ousted in 9 May general election, Najib has been slapped with more than 45 charges related to corruption and money laundering.
However, Najib pleaded not guilty to all charges and he was released on bail. – Malaysia World News
