I do not envy Najib or Rosmah these days. Rest or sleep will not come easy given the conundrum surrounding their sordid life of greed, avarice and unbridle arrogance! All the Kings horses and all the Kings men have never give them the peace and tranquility that they thought would be their domain once Seri Perdana became their residence. Nor has all the money that Najib seems not to know is in his Bank given them any respite from the greed of wanting more. The knowledge that they are so far victorious over Mahathir has not enabled either of them to rest easy….for what Mahathir does is still a work in much progress!

Uneasy lies the head on which the crown sits when the head is undeserving of it’s place upon which the crown sits. 

And now as they gallop into that final furlong towards political death, Najib, Rosmah and the criminal elites (all beholden to that “Cash is King” mantra) will all surely know that the end is nigh. The goings on within BSI is amazingly, breathtakingly painful to consider and in the depths of all this financial abuse is 1MDB.  

Where 1MDB is, you will find Najib Razak : Perdana Menteri, Menteri Kewangan dan Pengerusi
Lembaga Penasihat 1MDB.  

Najib must think….

“To die, to sleep –
To sleep, perchance to dream – ay, there’s the rub,
For in this sleep of death what dreams may come…”

Alas Najib, if only it was that easy……you will not have the courage seek death to run from what is to come....cowards die a thousand deaths! Welcome to Hell!

 

 

1MDB probe shows transfers within group controlling over 100 accounts

Swiss
Financial Market Supervisory Authority (Finma) said the 1MDB
investigation showed funds were transferred within a client group that
controlled over 100 accounts at BSI Bank.
Finma revealed this in detailing the “serious breaches of money laundering regulations” by BSI Bank.

“In
the context of the 1MDB case, the bank failed to adequately monitor
relationships with a client group with around 100 accounts at the bank.

“Transactions
were executed within the client group and with third parties without
the bank adequately clarifying their commercial justification,” it said
in a statement.

An example, it said, was BSI Bank being contented with the explanation that a deposit of US$20 million was a “gift”.

“In another case, an account was credited with more than US$98 million without any effort to clarify its commercial background.

“The
bank executed transactions involving similar amounts even though in
some cases the explanations and contractual documents obtained
contradicted the purpose of the account as stated when it was opened,”
it said.

Furthermore, the Swiss financial regulator said BSI Bank
also failed to conduct checks in pass-through transactions which were
clearly indications of money laundering.

“The bank failed to
properly document or carry out plausibility checks on these transactions
or was happy to accept the explanation that the beneficial owner of all
the accounts was the same person or that the transactions were being
executed for ‘accounting purposes’,” it said.

Finma’s announcement
coincided with the Switzerland’s Office of the Attorney-General (OAG)
launching criminal proceedings against BSI Bank in Switzerland and
Singapore authorities ordering the closure of BSI Bank in Singapore.

Finma
said the transactions spanned across several continents and financial
centres, prompting it to work with several foreign regulatory
authorities.

“Cooperation with Singapore’s financial market
supervisory authority (Monetary Authority of Singapore) was particularly
intensive.

“It carried out on-site investigations at the BSI
subsidiary in Singapore in parallel to Finma’s proceedings and
identified comparable control failures there.

“The Monetary
Authority of Singapore has also informed about its intention to withdraw
the BSI’s local licence and impose a fine of approximately S$13
million,” it said.
