Najib didn't know about CIA letter, says report

Najib Razak says what was reported about the letter to the United States' Central Intelligence Agency does not seem to seek US backing to help win the elections, but to preserve stability after the elections. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Seth Akmal, July 19, 2018.

FORMER prime minister Najib Razak today denied knowing about a letter sent by the Prime Minister’s Department to the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) ahead of the May 9 polls.

Najib told Malaysiakini he was “surprised” and “did not know of its existence” because not all letters had to go through him.

  • What does Najib know??? One does not need to micro manage to know what was going on if you picked the right people to helm and ask hard questions. He only asked for loyalty and was and still is blur most of the time. How in heavens did he make it to become PM? Thank the almighty and sensible Malaysians that voted PH otherwise I dare not even begin to envisage what our country will be like if he still is PM.....
