  • When the GE is near, all sorts of fake news, video ..... will flood the media world. Creating fear is the 'great' job by the politicians. They know very well that the opposition party does not have the resources to counter attack/defend, especially when the agent is based in London. I guess more and more will come from this agent soon. All the damages (influence the voters) had already been done, not much the opposition party can do inside our own country. It will be different now as Kuok is not limited in any resources. They might just hit a wrong target that they will regret very much.

    • UMNO will send a team of lawyers to defend him similar to how they helped the Low Yatt "handphone" thief.

  • Sue to make the point and set the record straight BUT there is no way to win the public war in the short term. Najib is behind this and the forces he sends are rabid animals fed on narcotics of racism and religo-fanaticism supported by our system of govt. Sue in London, take the money and set the record straight and then let them self-destruct.

  • What for? The guy is a bankrupt, made by UMNO and its cronies in the past. It is like flogging a dead horse. He does not care as long as he gets his money. He is a gun for hire even b y his former enemies.

  • I am sure Robert Kuok will defend his reputation and name as dearly as his life unlike some leader having accused of Theft by Wall Street Journal and even UNITED STATES DEPART OF JUSTICE, choose to ignore and snubbed out home-based media.
