Najib and the 1MDB Scandal

Post by Myasis Dragon » Thu, 01 Jul 2021 9:49 am

Folks, you may think you know about the 1MDB scandal where Najib Razak and his buddies essentially stole more that $7 billion USD from the taxpayers of Malaysia.

The facts behind it are both shocking and amazing. You're going to want to watch Season 2, Episode 2, titled, "Man at the Top" on the Netflix series "Dirty Money". The greed, the utterly straight faced way that they stole millions is unbelievable.

Worth the watch. If you can't get it in Singapore I'll see if there is an alternate stream

Najib should be shot or hung. I hope eventually he is along with his whore of a wife.

After watching it, I have to say, Najib seems to have a genuine psychological disorder of some kind (either that, or he is just really good at acting).

He clearly seems detached from both reality and the concept of right & wrong.

Especially at the end, where Najib says the king put the money into his account for him to use. He is either truly delusional, or the biggest grifter of them all.

We have a saying, if they catch you grabbing your hand, say it's not your hand.

Yes, I experienced this many years ago, we were presenting the hard facts to the head of our distribution arm in Malaysia, mind you these were completely indisputable facts and I witnessed him simply detach from reality and he told us matter of factly that those were not facts and he promptly left the meeting shortly thereafter. We were told later that we should have reviewed the facts with him privately before presenting them openly… but it was too late, and now he wouldn’t back down. This guy was quite a character, he was a “bumiputra Chinese” who officially had a Malay name and pretended to change his religion as well. He was definitely the type that made reality become whatever he wanted it to be.

That was my experience in China as well. Logic didn't matter.
