It is an unusual boast for a party leader, let alone Prime Minister, that he has shown he can visit the US without being arrested!
Nevertheless, it had taken him nearly two years, a huge amount of lobbying and a load of tribute flagged up in advance to summon up the courage. In the end, with his voice trembling, Najib did it!
Back home again he seems less fearful once more and quite happy to return to the spinning of bare-faced lies and nonsense, such as Mr Musa Annuar’s claim that thanks to this visit it is somehow “proved” that the money the DOJ says Najib stole from 1MDB was a donation from an anonymous Saudi chap instead.
The criminal investigation is still ongoing and Najib was received in his capacity as the representative of Malaysia, so no surprise he was not arrested, but neither was there much respect!
Annuar should certainly scrape around for other rats to re-join his sinking ship, the opposition need to clear their own decks as much as possible of such characters before they get down to the job of sorting UMNO’s mess.
