Today, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad attacked Arul Kanda Kandasamy, 1MDB and Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak. Dr Mahathir raises a lot of questions based on suspicion and says that all the replies to his questions are lies.
Dr Mahathir has so many suspicions and questions but when answers are given he rejects them and calls them lies. So what more then does he expect? When you do not reply he implies something is wrong but when you reply he calls them lies. What is it that can satisfy Dr Mahathir?
As he said, the only thing that can satisfy Dr Mahathir is Najib’s resignation. Anything short of that is not acceptable. No amount of explaining regarding 1MDB is going to satisfy Dr Mahathir other than Najib’s resignation.
Dr Mahathir wants the police and the MACC to investigate the allegations of corruption and abuse of power in 1MDB. And he is upset that the police and the MACC are not doing anything. Maybe Dr Mahathir should lodge reports with the police and the MACC. When Dr Mahathir makes these police and MACC reports he can also hand in all the evidence that he has to prove wrongdoing in 1MDB.
It is time that Dr Mahathir stop asking questions and instead give us the answers to those questions since only his answers are acceptable and everyone else’s are not. And he can give the police and MACC those answers to help them in their investigation.
