A rally to be held at the PWTC on January 23 from 10.00 am in the morning at the Aras 4 PWTC Kuala Lumpur by supporters of ex-PM Najib Razak is to drum-up support against the MACC.
This is what transpires from a media release sent to WorldFuture which says Najib is the victim of Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission or MACC.
The media release, sent by PSUAM or Persatuan Sahabat Ulul Amri Malaysia, says, “MACC is abusing its power to hide new evidence, namely the ‘AMBANK Report’ which has linked ‘big names’ such as former Bank Negara Governor Tan Sri Zeti Aziz & her husband Datuk Tawfiq Ayman,” adding that the release of this report, “can free Najib from all charges of court cases.”
PSUAM is chaired by Syed Muhammad Imran Abdul Aziz. The NGO made the headlines last year, in August precisely, when it petitioned for a royal pardon for Najib. It also petitioned for Najib to become the ‘interim Prime Minister’ to replace the then embattled PM, Muhyiddin Yassin.
While Muhyiddin fell after losing majority support in Parliament, he was replaced by an Umno Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri Yaakub.
PSUAM says it has previously lodged a report on abuse of power by the MACC itself at the Putrajaya MACC Headquarters and at the Dang Wangi District Police Headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.
The MACC confirmed earlier this month that it had opened an investigation paper related to the report made by PSUAM, says the NGO.
“However, we were surprised to find that the PDRM did not open any investigation papers, instead they would only refer to the MACC,” it adds.
“On November 19, 2021, the country was shocked by the MACC’s official statement that 1MDB-related money amounting to RM65 million was found in the bank account of Datuk Tawfik Ayman, the husband of Tan Sri Zeti Aziz, and that the money had been returned by the Singapore government to Malaysia.
“Similarly, the return of money belonging to the former CEO of SRC International Sdn Bhd, Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil amounted to RM3.6 million was also returned to Malaysia.”
But the NGO is unhappy that no police action were taken against the owners of the accounts.
The NGO puts Zeti Aziz under additional fire, saying they are certain the latter is the person who advised Najib to open an account in his personal name to receive contributions.
The group is backing Najib in his fight to reverse the 12-year jailing sentence against him.
“With the Sunday event, we request that the people & all sympathetic parties come to give support that Dato ‘Sri Najib Razak is being persecuted, oppressed, abused and is being denied his rights & justice. Please attend in large numbers on this Sunday at 10.00 am – 1.00 at Level 4 PWTC Kuala Lumpur.”
“The gathering is to feel the pulse and ‘expression of the conscience of the people’ in relation to the situation of the former Prime Minister. It is to gather support for the beloved Dato ‘Sri Najib Razak, loved by the people, who has been persecuted and denied justice, through among others the abuse of power by the MACC to withhold evidence that could acquit Najib of all court charges,
“The event is also about the concern of the public regarding rising food prices, worsening unemployment, withdrawal of EPF savings for post-Covid use/ floods/job & business losses, post-flood problem management, voices of appeal & people’s grievances and more.” says the media release.
