We’re truly living in a different Malaysia now!
The news portal, Sarawak Report, that was blocked by the Malaysian government since 2015 has finally been unblocked after the new government took over last week. It was blocked for exposing information regarding the infamous 1MDB scandal, but now that it is no longer restricted, more and more truths are being revealed.
Now, the website’s editor, Clare Rewcastle-Brown recently stated that Senior Deputy Public Prosecutor, Kevin Morais, who was murdered three years ago, actually leaked information about the 1MDB scandal that the Attorney-General Chamber had investigated.
In an interview with Malay Mail, she said that reliable sources had told her Morais had given her the information, which allegedly included a charge sheet against former prime minister Najib Razak.
When asked about how she had managed to obtain such highly confidential information, she said, “I was contacted directly by that person (who prepared the charge sheet)..I think it was Kevin Morais.”
“I have enough people who I’m not going to quote, reliable sources who told me it was Kevin Morais,” she added.
A statutory declaration alleging that Morais was responsible for drafting the charge sheets against Najib was issued by Morais’ brother, Charles, and that he had delivered copies of those charge sheets to Sarawak Report.
These papers were sent right after Najib had removed the Attorney-General at the time, Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail, and a few other members of his government in attempts to prevent his purported arrest.
Charles told reporters then that he did not believe the explanation of the kidnapping and strangling of his brother. Authorities claimed his murder was related to a separate bribery case for which several men faced trial. It was for this reason Charles had demanded a second post-mortem to be conducted.
Morais was believed to have been kidnapped on September 4 2015, and strangled to death before his body was placed in a drum filled with concrete, which was found at Persiaran Subang Mewah, Subang Jaya two weeks after he was reported missing.
Rewcastle-Brown mirrored Charles’ doubts about the official explanation for Morais’ murder, saying the narrative that gangsters had killed Morais out of vengeance was disguising something more sinister, and advised Malaysian authorities to investigate the matter more thoroughly.
“My biggest emotion was such sadness and concern..I think we know who has been arrested and who has been tried but I think there should be a deeper (investigation),” she told Malay Mail.
“I think it’s often a very big problem in Malaysia where street gangsters are picked up and charged with crimes without (knowing) their motives.”
Just last week, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, confirmed that former AG Gani was fired because he was going to charge Najib after authorities discovered there was RM42 million of 1MDB subsidiary, SRC International’s money that was transferred into the former prime minister’s personal account.
Sarawak Report had also published some of the official investigation papers showing where the money went in a number of reports. All this while, Najib has denied any wrongdoing and has insisted that he is innocent.
Now, the former AG, along with three other ex-officials who were fired under the previous government, are now the official heads of a new task force that aims to probe into the 1MDB scandal.
With all the termination of contracts and alleged deaths surrounding this case, we only hope investigations will soon reveal solid evidence behind the 1MDB scandal.
