A court settlement that opens Pandora’s box

Various parties have commented on the out-of-court settlement between PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang and Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown. We can expect more lively and loaded commentaries in the days ahead.

Rewcastle-Brown has since said she stands her ground. She explained that the article would remain online without any alteration.

Amanah leaders who were former leaders of PAS came out with guns blazing against Hadi and company. Mohamad Sabu issued an open invitation to unhappy PAS members to join Amanah. Khalid Samad said the settlement by Hadi was an open admission by PAS of Rewcastle-Brown’s allegations.

Hanipa Maidin questioned Hadi as to why he initiated the case in the first place. Raja Kamarul Bahrin said PAS supporters were the main losers for being duped into donating about RM3 million to defray legal costs.

Raja Bahrin also noted that there were now rumblings of discontent among PAS members in Terengganu over the volte-face by Hadi. Husam Musa and Mahfuz Omar, meanwhile, expressed regret that a party which had been built on the platform of Islamic ideals was now under severe disrepute.

In the meantime, a purported extract of the settlement, naming a number of PAS bigwigs as leading very luxurious lifestyles from ill-gotten proceeds, has gone viral on the internet over the last few days.

The New Straits Times reported that one of the leaders, a PAS ulama, had admitted that a Porsche car was indeed registered in his name but he claimed that it was not his.

A lawyer friend commented that it reminded him of the case of a lawyer who was the subject of a royal commission of inquiry. When showed a video of him making some incriminating statements, he nonchalantly replied, “It looks like me, sounds like me…”

A video clip of former PAS Youth chief Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Aziz purportedly making incriminating confessions has also resurfaced. In the said video, Nik Abduh purportedly admits that PAS had been receiving financial assistance, and proudly claimed that PAS was clever and Umno was stupid in this matter.

Hadi’s video at a dialogue session apparently held in Kuala Terengganu early this year also went viral lately. In the video, Hadi purportedly said that if PAS were to withdraw the suit against Rewcastle-Brown, it would mean what she said was true.

Then there is also the bank-in-slip of RM1 million purportedly being remitted to Terengganu PAS officials and another RM1.5 million to the party’s state election committee in Terengganu to help in its general election campaign.

A Kadir Jasin, media adviser to the prime minister, said it was imperative that the authorities investigate the matter and bring it to a quick closure.

A few reports were also lodged with the police, and the MACC subsequently announced it was investigating the matter.

The niggling issues

If Hadi and company were expecting that the settlement would help bring about a quick and happy closure to the matter, they were very wrong about it. As wrong and unwise as they were when they initiated the libel suit in the first place.

Now instead of a quick closure to the case, the settlement has opened up Pandora’s box, with old and new evidence being uploaded at a fast and furious pace on to social media with much detriment to PAS.

Perhaps it would be more appropriate to say that the said settlement has opened up a can of worms for public viewing.

Report to MACC claims ‘RM90m for PAS’ used to buy BMW, Audi, Vellfire https://t.co/D7ZLDQioPI

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 8 — Several luxury vehicles and expensive properties were among the items listed as allegedly paid for by the RM90 million that PAS was accused of receiving from rival Umno.

A report by Malaysiakini quoting anonymous sources with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) claimed that a report lodged with the graftbusters had listed cars from marques and models such as BMW, Mini Cooper, Toyota Vellfire, Range Rover, Porsche Cayman, Audi Q7 and a BMW superbike.

“According to the report, several PAS leaders were accused of using these funds to acquire the cars and properties,” the source was quoted as saying.

“As for the properties, this includes a bungalow in Bangi worth RM3 million.”

The money als was allegedly used to buy vehicle registration plates at exorbitant prices.

Malay Mail cannot verify the information reported with the MACC at the time of writing.

The investigation comes after PAS announced it had settled its defamation suit against Clare Rewcastle-Brown who claimed the party had received money from Umno.

An audio recording featuring PAS central committee member Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz allegedly talking about the money surfaced as part of the evidence.

Nik Abduh was at the Kelantan MACC headquarters to give his statement over an allegation that several leaders of the Opposition party had received a total of RM90 million suspected to be money from the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) state investment fund.

Former PAS deputy president Datuk Nasharudin Mat Isa was also questioned today while former PAS vice-president Datuk Husam Musa is expected to be called up next.

Because the teacher probably could afford ONE 200k car by offering tuition services. But you seem to afford many cars and they’re beyond 200k each, which is unlikely on your TMB salary.

Nik Amar: If a teacher can afford RM200k car, why can’t I afford a RM100k one? malaysiakini.com/news/463227

Kelantan deputy menteri besar Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah has dismissed allegations that he bought luxury cars using funds received from former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak,

Instead, Mohd Amar said he has only bought cars that were within his means.

“The accusations at the High Court in London are 100 percent untrue and are more to hearsay. I have bought cars, but only those that are within my means.

“Can’t I buy a car between RM60,000 and RM100,000 when a teacher can afford to buy a RM200,000 car? Surely a deputy menteri besar buy a car priced more than RM100,000,” he was quoted as saying by Berita Harian today.

He said this when asked about claims he had bought luxury vehicles such as a Range Rover, an Audi A6 and Toyota Vellfire among others.

He, however, declined to comment further on the matter. “I can’t comment further. I’ve been advised by my lawyer to not say anything more on this matter.
