  • Najib is basically showing he is the BOSS !!!!!. All the court personnel are just plain fools to him and below his level. That is his thinking and all the dramas that he has created without a freaking hoot are just blatant contempt for the court. He is demanding respect but completely forgooten that he is now a criminal waiting to be officially charged and convicted. His dreams will be shattered soon.

  • He closed his eyes like when Who Low was allowed to loot 1MDB when he was Chairman of the Board. The rakyat look forward to him closing his eyes in Sg Buloh Prison.
