Najib fires back at Dr Mahathir in ‘sweetheart deals’ duel

Najib Razak says his stepson, Riza Aziz, never received a single dollar direct from 1MDB. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, June 23, 2020.

NAJIB Razak took to Facebook tonight to respond to Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s challenge to show proof that the latter’s sons benefitted from his time in office.

He cited the business dealings of one of Dr Mahathir’s sons, Mirzan, whose entity, Konsortium Perkapalan, needed a bailout from Petronas via MISC during the 1997-1998 economic crisis, as well as his business involvement with Vincent Tan’s brother.

  • All PM's sons are super rich people. Everything y'all touch they turn to gold. At 70 I still struggle hard. All avenues seem so difficult. 16 agencies ate supposed to help me. None was friendly.

  • We know very well what 60 years of BN government has been up to. That's why we want change. PH has been the cleanest of them all but unfortunately PH succumbs to old fox lies and tricks.

  • Najib is clutching straws. Tun's children went into business in their own right. I do know for a fact that they take loans to purchase assets. They then involved themselves in the business to develop it further through their hard work and sweat.

    They may have an advantage purely because of the fact that their father is the PM of Malaysia and their business partners think an association with the children will give them a leg up. But that is not to say there was corrupt practices of favouritism.
