No legal action means documents must be true, says Rafizi

 | May 16, 2017

To date, none of those PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli alleged to be recipients of SRC International's funds had lodged a police report against him.

rafizi-ramli-kertas-buktiPETALING JAYA: The lack of a substantiated denial from those he named as the recipients of SRC International’s funds has led PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli to believe that his allegations, which were based on documents obtained from a blog called SPRMInsider, are true.

“If even a small part of the SPRMInsider’s documents and the revelations I’ve made so far were false, I’m sure I would’ve been arrested and charged (for it),” he said in an announcement broadcast live from his Facebook page today.

“But to date, no one has lodged a report against me, nor has anyone refuted my allegations with evidence.”

The Pandan MP had since last month, used the documents he obtained from SPRMInsider to allege that a huge sum of SRC’s funds had been funneled into Prime Minister Najib Razak’s personal accounts, before they were transferred to other individuals.

These include former PAS deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa. Nasharudin denied receiving the funds and said that he has sought legal counsel to initiate legal action or “any other appropriate actions deemed reasonable, expedient and in accordance to the rule of law”.

But in a May 3 report by Malaysiakini, Rafizi was quoted as saying that he has yet to receive any letter of demand or legal suit from Nasharudin.

“The most important individuals have also failed to deny my allegations,” Rafizi said this afternoon.

Among these “important individuals” were Najib, his aide who Rafizi said received RM2 million of SRC-originated funds, Bank Negara Malaysia which failed to investigate a man whom Rafizi claimed had, in January 2015, cashed several cheques amounting to RM43 million in just three weeks, and Tabung Haji.

“When none of those I named had openly denied (my allegations) or lodged a police report, I’m more confident that the SPRMInsider’s documents were true.

“Even more so that the Attorney-General (Mohamed Apandi Ali) himself had refused to deny the accuracy of the documents,” Rafizi said.

He was referring to a report by Malaysiakini yesterday, which claimed that Apandi had declined to respond over the documents found on the SPRMInsider blog.
