Revealed: Najib to get free house worth RM100 million in posh KL neighbourhood
Unease as government decides to ‘reward’ former PM for his national service despite his high-profile corruption conviction.
MalaysiaNow Nov 12, 2021 1:00 PM
Former leader Najib Razak has requested a “privilege” from the government in the form of a 2.8-acre residential property worth RM100 million in one of Kuala Lumpur’s most exclusive neighbourhoods, receiving the approval of the government but drawing protests from ministers and senior officials, MalaysiaNow can reveal.
It is understood that the former prime minister made the request about a year after his fall from power in the 2018 election, and again last year, just months before he was found guilty of corruption charges related to the 1MDB scandal.
When contacted, a highly placed source in Umno confirmed that Najib had made such a request to the Prime Minister’s Department by invoking a little known act which gives special privileges and allowances to former prime ministers, including the ownership of properties and land belonging to the government.
“He made the request based on the practice that the government of the day is expected to reward its predecessors for their service and contributions to the nation,” the source told MalaysiaNow.
MalaysiaNow has also learnt that the decision to approve Najib’s request did not sit well with several senior government officials and ministers who pointed to his corruption conviction.
There are indications that several ministers including from the Perikatan Nasional coalition as well as Umno leaders from the anti-Najib camp had opposed the move.
A former minister and Bersatu politician expressed shock when told of the decision, saying it was a far cry from the treatment meted out to civil servants convicted of lesser crimes.
“Remember the case of a retired policeman who lost his pension even though he served 30 years in the force? That was over a mere RM700 bribe,” he said.
“And here we have someone who was found guilty over RM42 million,” he added, in a reference to Najib’s charges related to SRC International.
Since his fall from power, Najib has been staying at his private residence in Taman Duta, receiving the RM10,000 allowance, but has now opted to request for a free house from the government.
It is understood that Najib made a formal request to the government early this year following a site visit of the vacant land.
“That property has a market value of about RM20 million more than the one awarded to Abdullah,” said a real estate agent who specialises in exclusive properties in the capital.
Siapa di belakang MalaysiaNow, ini cerita Ahli MT Umno
Oleh DR PUAD ZARKASHI / October 27, 2020
Nama seperti Malaysiakini, Malaysia Today, Malaysia Insight memang sudah dikenali.
Sekarang timbul nama baru, MalaysiaNow. Siapa pemiliknya?
Ikut carian SSM, Abd Ar-Raman Koya adalah single director. Dia adik kepada Latheefa Koya bekas PKR yang dilantik sebagai boss SPRM oleh Tun Mahathir.
Dikatakan Azmin Ali adalah pay master kepada portal ini. Apakah Hamzah juga terlibat. Ada yang kata C5 terlibat.
Bagaimana C5 terlibat. Mudah je. Bocorkan maklumat dalaman. Pusing fakta dan timbulkan provokasi. Macam ada konspirasi terancang sejak 20 September.
Naratif utama portal ini sekarang ialah Umno mahu berkawan dengan Anwar. Bila berkawan dengan Anwar maknanya berkawan dengan DAP.
Mereka yakin isu kerjasama dengan Anwar-DAP adalah senjata ampuh untuk memecah belahkan Umno. Umno-DAP umpama anjing dengan kucing.
Politiking memang sukar dibendung. Azmin main belakang. Dia gunakan MalaysiaNow untuk adu domba. Dia penasihat “darurat” yang gagal.
Sayang sekali, MalaysiaNow tidak pula menyiarkan gambar Azmin menangis di rumah Muhyiddin apabila darurat ditolak.
Ini adalah pendapat penulis dan tidak semestinya pendapat Malaysia Dateline. Dr Puad Zarkashi adalah ahli Majlis Tertinggi Umno. Tulisan ini disiarkan dalam facebook beliau.
