Why hide your wealth, Rafizi asks Mat Hasan

PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli says in Rantau using a money changer to transfer funds overseas is suspicious in itself. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Hasnoor Hussain, April 11, 2019.

WHY hide your wealth, PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli asked Umno acting president Mohamad Hasan who allegedly tried to hide his RM10 million remittance to buy a flat in London more than a decade ago.

Rafizi said following the revelation, many Umno leaders have rushed to defend the Barisan Nasional candidate in the Rantau by-election by saying that “Tok Mat (as Mohamad is fondly known) was a rich guy” as he had previously held several corporate posts.

“So, if he is really wealthy, why was Tok Mat so afraid about people knowing about it (fund transfer) that he used an illegal channel?” he said while campaigning on behalf of Pakatan Harapan’s Dr S. Streram yesterday.

Mohamad used a money changer to remit the funds and Rafizi said there are only two possibilities why the former would use that method to transfer funds – either because the sum was above the limit allowed by Bank Negara or the money was not his.

“Tok Mat aspires to become the prime minister because he believes the strategy of playing up racial issues by the PAS-Umno coalition will succeed.

“If Tok Mat is still keen to become the prime minister, it is better that Tok Mat be honest from now on, why he transferred the RM10 million in 2007 in secret, while he is a rich person.” – Bernama, April 11, 2019.

  • Did he dream to be a PM.?? If the shoes fit !! What has he got to be in that caliber? Education is half past six, intellect nil except for only knowledge of bangsa dan agama. In the earlier GE14 he has shown to be devious and conniving even for such a small state constituencies to deter his opponents from challenging him . It tells a lot of his capability. So how big is his visions??? Maybe a small fake PM for the retards in the UmnoPAS party.
