Who is delaying the CBT trial (42 Million) of the century?

Dear Accused Person in PP v Najib Razak,

Let me just tell you this.

You are darn lucky to have a refined gentleman – a person who goes about doing his works quietly; who is fair and who is not beholden to anybody, including the government – as the Prosecutor in your Criminal Breach of Trust (42 Million) case.

You could have a real cowboy of a Prosecutor in your Criminal Breach of Trust (42 Million) case, but New Malaysia is not about having cowboys, dogs and subservient cretins occupying powerful seats in powerful institutions as was the practice in not too distant pass under your so-called wasatiyah and walaq leadership.

Everybody remembers, dear Accused Person, your now infamous remark that you prefer loyalty to brains in choosing your people. But in New Malaysia, we prefer intelligence, refinement, knowledge, honesty and integrity.

In other words, we prefer real class.

Not the kind of class that wears a black jacket with a pair of red shoes and danced like a drunkard at a free election concert gimmick!

So dear Accused Person, count your lucky stars.

Because the days of doing things according to the whims and fancies of the Executive are over and you are, quite ironically, one of the biggest beneficiaries of that.

Thus, you were brought to Court without being handcuffed. And you were allowed to wear your nice (Brioni?) suit, well dolled up like the superstar that you are.

Even your not very well-mannered supporters were allowed to gather (with no notice given under the law), carrying placards professing their undying love for you and singing songs for you. Why, they were even allowed to interrupt a public officer from doing his duty by creating a noisy ruckus forcing the Attorney General to change his plan to make statements to the press. Had that happened when you were the Prime Minister, I am quite sure the policemen wouldn’t be that lenient.

You were even given the luxury of posting your bail in instalments, a privilege that not many are able to enjoy. Not enough with that, the Court had even given you the privilege of a temporary gag order, even though no proper application was before the Court and the Prosecutor (the Attorney General of Malaysia, mind you) was not even afforded the courtesy of prior notice of your application, as would any other mere mortals in Court.

And you and your supporters are screaming that you have been victimised? And they were carrying placards demanding the government to respect “civil rights?” Are you blind at how you were treated that day?

Your good Counsel later attacked the Prosecutor, saying that he was not ready or prepared. He complained that the Prosecutor had not given him any document. He looked puzzle and asked if the case had been prepared since 2015, why weren’t there any document that day.

He then referred to the time he was defending Tan Sri Mohamad, the ex-MB of Selangor in Australia. Apparently, there he was given a set of document the first day he was in Court.

Well Sir, if I remember correctly, Tan Sri Mohamad was charged for not declaring a sum of money in cash that he had with him while departing from Australia.

Now, how many documents would be involved in that case? Three?

I would have suspected that the only documents involved in that case were his passport, his air-tickets, his entry and exit documents and errr….that’s it!

Of course, unless you counted the 3 million dollar in notes as documents!

The truth is dear Accused Person, your Counsel has been around for a long time. Would you ask him how many times in his 40 years or so of criminal law practice that he has ever been supplied with document on the day the charge was read?

I think the answer would be zero. Nada. Zilch (or whatever Arab word for zero that you prefer).

Now how many documents will there be in your Criminal Breach of Trust (42 Million) case? Well I wouldn’t know, but I would guess a whole lot more – substantially more – than three.

Talking about being prepared, may I know when you are prepared to sue the living daylight off Wall Street Journal, CNN, Fox, BBC, Guardian and almost every other newspaper and news companies in the whole civilised world for defaming you? Really, because one fine day quite sometime ago, you said you were going to sue WSJ “next Tuesday.”

I understand you were busy and all before because as Prime Minister you had a lot to do. But now you must be free.

Talking about preparedness for your Criminal Breach of Trust (42 Million) case, the Prosecutor has said that he wants to apply for the case to be tried in November this year instead of on the trial dates the Court had fixed, namely in February and March next year.

Dear Accused Person, again, you are given a privilege here. Your Criminal Breach of Trust (42 Million) case has been given top priority, quickly jumping the queue of other cases waiting to be tried. So, what you are complaining? Who is not prepared? Are you?

Now I learned that you are going to apply for the Prosecutor to be disqualified due to whatever reason. Apparently, you are also suing the MACC Chief, the police officer who raided your home and found that 116 million in cash and a collection of treasure that would make even Captain Hook himself proud, as well as the Attorney General.

So dear Accused Person, who is delaying your Criminal Breach of Trust (42 Million) case?

You or the Attorney General?

Your followers make so much noise about the Prosecutor not speaking in Bahasa Malaysia.

Well Sir, New Malaysia prefers a person who can do his work properly rather than a dog who speaks Bahasa but who does nothing but to sit and wait, tail wagging, for his Master’s desires, whims and fancies to be made known to him for his due compliance.

So Sir, sit tight and enjoy the ride. You will have your day in the witness box saying your piece and being cross-examined by Mr Tommy Thomas with the Court’s CCTV recording your every word and every eye and facial muscle movements. After all, as they say in English, “every dog has his day” ( untuk yang tak paham Bahasa Inggeris – “setiap anjing ada harinya”).

Perhaps you could even take a selfie or two with Mr Tommy Thomas during the breaks. I am sure the affable Mr Thomas would oblige your request.

Wishing you all the best.
