The three Tan Sris — former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief Abu Kassim Mohamed, former Attorney-General (AG) Abdul Gani Patail, and former Bank Negara Governor Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz — breathed a huge sigh of relief when the IGP Khalid Abu Bakar announced that the investigation into Khairul Azwan Harun’s police report is now closed (and marked NFA or No Further Action).
This has given the three a new lease in life because had the investigation proceeded then it would have had drastic results for the three Tan Sris and, as they say in the west, the shit would have really hit the fan.
The investigation would not only have revealed what Khairul said was true, it would also have revealed many other secrets as well, secrets that the three Tan Sris would rather remain buried.
In fact, for those who have been following the ‘1MDB Saga’, which Malaysia Today has stripped and laid bare piece by piece since early 2015, most of what we are going to say is already ‘old news’ and something that you have might have read before.
However, humans have a memory of only 100 days, as the Russians said, so probably many of you have forgotten what we said over the last 18 months.
Allow me, therefore, to take you on a trip down memory lane.
When the IGP initially announced that the police would be investigating Khairul’s police report, it sent a panic through the ranks of the ANC (Anti-Najib Campaign), Dr Mahathir Mohamad included.
The three Tan Sris were especially scared because once the investigation is launched it would look into events from the very beginning and much of what they have been doing in the effort to oust Prime Minister Najib Razak is far from kosher and downright illegal.
There are many issues that have still remained unanswered and many of these secrets are just floating on the surface and have not quite been buried yet.
Hence the smell is still very strong and if someone were to come close to them and start digging them up the three Tan Sris would be really in hot soup.
So it is not in their interest for the police to investigate Khairul’s police report lest more than what they are looking for surfaces, which will happen for sure if they start probing further.
Worse still would be if a special task force were set up to investigate the allegation that Abu Kassim, Gani and Zeti are involved in espionage and treason by their act of giving Malaysian government secrets to a foreign power with intent to topple the government.
After all, Mukhriz Mahathir himself admitted two days ago that their objective is to oust the Barisan Nasional (BN) government.
And Mahathir, too, has confessed many times that all he wants is to oust the Prime Minister, even through street demonstrations and chaos if necessary.
It is no secret and they have never denied that they want to trigger a ‘Malaysian Spring’ like what happened in a few Middle Eastern countries.
And Mahathir also said they need the help of foreign countries to be able to bring down the government.
This has all been openly stated and they hope that the US will intervene and help oust the Prime Minister and BN.
So once the special task force is set up and an investigation into the allegation against the three Tan Sris is launched, all this and more are going to be revealed.
And there would be no way the three and many others in the ANC can escape allegations of treason for being involved in espionage by giving Malaysian government secrets to a foreign power.
Further to that, it would also reveal that a special task force to investigate 1MDB was illegally set up without Cabinet approval in May 2015.
This was the press statement issued by that special task force on July 7, 2015:
