Dr M refuses to accept claim that Arabs made RM2.6bil donation

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad
PETALING JAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has refused to accept that the Arabs donated RM2.6bil to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak for his election campaign.      
The former prime minister of 22 years said that Arabs were not that generous and that he never managed to raise a single dollar from Arabs for the Malaysian International Islamic University or for the Oxford Islamic Centre.
“Certainly I don’t believe it and neither can the majority of Malaysians if we go by the comments on the social media. The world had a good laugh,” Dr Mahathir said in a posting on on Monday.
“Who in the world would donate US$700mil to the Malaysian Prime Minister? Even Obama could not raise this amount for his Presidential bid,” he added.
Dr Mahathir said the claims that the money was for elections was not logical as he had needed less than RM10mil for each of the five elections he presided over.
“Why do you need RM2.6bil-plus or 2,600 million ringgit. Is it to bribe politicians and civil servants, or to rig the elections? That would not be right, much less legal,” he said.
Dr Mahathir said that what Najib was doing was unprecedented and that the people are at a loss.
He added that the prospect of Najib continuing to rule the country is depressing and that the Malaysia where elections can even see opposition parties winning whole states will be no more.
“Democracy is dead. It is dead because an elected leader chooses to subvert the institutions of Government and make them his instruments for sustaining himself. There is no more democracy for anyone to undermine,” he said.

"Najib: It's the practice in UMNO"

HERE's the one from the sun online:~~

Najib: Norm for party president to manage party's funds

JOHOR BARU: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak (pix) today said the Umno president was entrusted to manage party's funds and this has been the practice since the leadership of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
"During my tenure as the party's deputy president, I never questioned the party funding as that is under the president's scope.
"This has always been the practice and all I am doing is continuing it," he said.
Speaking at the opening of the Pasir Gudang Umno divisional meeting, Najib urged the members to trust him to do what is best for the party.
On the recent Cabinet reshuffle, he said according to the party's constitution, the deputy president's job was to assist the president.
"The Cabinet reshuffle was a difficult task for me and I had to make many tough decisions, but there were reasons for this.
"I am ready to accept criticism as long as the party's principles are respected and secrets are kept," he said.
He said he understood the sentiments of Johor Umno, referring to the removal of former deputy prime minister Tan Sri Muhyddin Yassin, who is also the Pagoh MP.
"What I did was purely for administrative reasons, not to hurt the feelings of Johor Umno.
"Once a decision is made, it should be followed," he said, assuring members that he would continue to helm and steer the country through these trying times.
****He also said there was a need for Umno to create more "keyboard warriors" to fend off negative perceptions against the party in social media.
He said these days, numerous perceptions were formed through slander that is being spread at a much faster and easier rate than before.
"We are now dealing with the truth against falsehood and the spreading of slander which is done at one's fingertips.
"Cyberspace platform is as important as the physical platform now because it is no longer about face to face communication," he said.****
One such example of this, said Najib was the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) issue, where numerous allegations have been made regarding the funds.
"The facts have been twisted on social media and this has created negative perceptions. I can say that in the next five months, 1MDB's debts will be significantly reduced and this will be announced in stages," he said.
On the Goods and Services Tax (GST), Najib said revenue from GST would be returned to the people through various programmes which would be announced in the Budget 2016 in October.
This is Najib’s first visit to Johor after the Cabinet reshuffle on July 28.
“I am touched because the Johoreans have given me a very warm welcome here," he added.

Political donations never went to my own account: Mahathir

KUALA LUMPUR - It has never been Umno's practice to place money from political donations in the personal accounts of trustees, Malaysia's former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad said in his blog on Monday, rejecting claims that he had done the same during his tenure.
Dr Mahathir said while he was the Umno president, he was one of three trustees who ensured that all political donations were deposited into a bank account which was held in trust for the party, Malaysian Insider reported.
He said he ensured that all the money, shares and other title deeds in Umno's possession were transferred to his successor Abdullah Badawi.
"Not a single sen from funds donated for elections was put into my account," the news portal quoted Dr Mahathir as saying in his Malay-language blog post.
"Throughout my 22 years (as prime minister) I was prepared to have all my personal accounts examined by those without any vested interest to verify if my claims were true or not."
Dr Mahathir dismissed claims that political donations had also gone into his personal accounts as "baseless" and "slander", according to Malaysian Insider.
He recounted his experience in the 1964 and 1969 general elections, when RM20,000 (S$7,157) from the Umno headquarters were handed over to him to be distributed to parliamentary and state constituencies
"Because I was not willing to keep the RM20,000 cash, I deposited it into my account and I issued cheques to the Dewan Rakyat and state assembly election committees in accordance to the distribution amount set by the headquarters.
"The money was not from donors but it was Umno's money that was given to divisions for the candidates to use," he added.
On Saturday, Bernama news agency reported that the Umno constitution provides for the party president to have a trust account on behalf of the party.
BN's strategic communications director and Umno member Abdul Rahman Dahlan said it was not only Najib who had a trust account on behalf of Umno, but also the previous Umno presidents.
Rahman, who is also urban well-being, housing and local government minister, said the money currently in a trust account under Najib's name as the Umno president was not from 1MDB or public funds, Bernama reported.
Donations to Umno from the past up to now are from party supporters, he said.
The Wall Street Journal had alleged that US$700 million (S$96 million) linked to troubled state investment firm 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) was transferred to Najib's accounts over the past two years.
Najib has denied using state funds for personal gain but has yet to clarify whether the money was funnelled into his accounts. He has accused Dr Mahathir of working with foreign agents to topple his administration.
