The Malaysian Insight

Before GE14, only Najib Razak's inner circle and senior government officials knew how much the former prime minister relied on Bustari Yusof, and how much influence the businessman wielded. – The Malaysian Insight pic, June 5, 2018.

SARAWAK’s Bustari Yusof, a little-known but wealthy businessman and Najib Razak’s right-hand man, was on the cusp of becoming even wealthier.

The Malaysian Insight understand a sizeable portion of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project in Selangor had been earmarked for development by Bustari’s company. The value of the contract for that segment of the mammoth infrastructure project is said to be about RM9 billion.

  • Why did Bustari Yusof disappear after GE14? How is Lebuhraya Borneo Utara Sdn Bhd qualified to deliver the RM27 billion Pan Borneo Highway. At a time when gomen is seeking to bring down the cost of ECRL, why is he hiding instead of cooperating with the authorities to help our country?
