KUALA LUMPUR – The Advisor of DAP, Lim Kit Siang said that the hatred and humiliations received by UMNO today was caused by its leaders who failed to expel its former President, Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
He alleged, the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal by the former leader has caused the country to be slammed and labelled as a global kleptocracy.
“All these indignities and humiliations were brought about by the UMNO leaders themselves, when they failed UMNO and Malaysia and aided and abetted former Prime Minister and former UMNO President, Datuk Seri Najib Razak in the monstrous 1MDB corruption money-laundering scandal, which brought shame and infamy to Malaysia by being condemned worldwide as a global kleptocracy.
“Up till today, there has been no remorse, contrition or repentance among UMNO leaders for this great act of disservice, even treason, to the country!” he said in his official blog.
His latest blog entry which rebutted the UMNO President, Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s statement that he not only faced rejections but also insults in a number of meetings he attended.
Elaborating further, Kit Siang said, Ahmad Zahid, as the right hand man to Najib had played vital roles in ‘covering’ the activities of Najib in relation to 1MDB.
“Zahid himself even claimed in August 2015 that he had met with the Saudi Arabian royal family on the RM2.6 billion in Najib’s personal banking account, but he has refused in the past three years to substantiate his statement by revealing whom he had met,” he added. -MalaysiaGazette
