PETALING JAYA: Outspoken Jelutong DAP MP RSN Rayer today urged Najib Razak to show some remorse for what happened while he was prime minister instead of going around calling himself “Bossku”.
“Enough is enough. Stop taking Malaysians for a ride and show some remorse.
“Rather than going to Sandakan to campaign for PBS for the by-election, I demand that you explain to the people of Malaysia why you allowed greed to get the better of you and why you resorted to abusing your position as a PM and finance minister.”
Rayer said Najib should not take Malaysians for granted and said the former PM should be prepared to be verbally abused and embarrassed in Sandakan during his visit there.
Najib flew into Sabah today to do last-minute campaigning for the PBS candidate taking part in the by-election which will be held tomorrow.
He was met by 300 enthusiastic supporters when he visited the Ramadan bazaar in Sandakan and even sang a popular song for his fans with a group of buskers there.
The by-election sees a five-cornered fight between DAP’s Vivian Wong, former two-term PBS Batu Sapi MP Linda Tsen, and three independent candidates, Sulaiman Abdul Samat, Hamzah Abdullah and Chia Siew Yung.
Najib faces 42 criminal charges in relation to abuse of power, money-laundering and criminal breach trust, involving billions of ringgit.
He has consistently denied any wrongdoing and has been constantly attacking Pakatan Harapan policies.
His wife, Rosmah Mansor, is currently facing 17 money-laundering charges and several other bribery charges pertaining to a solar hybrid power project for schools in Sarawak.
Rayer said yesterday, Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu had revealed land swaps which further implicated Najib and former defence minister Hishammuddin Hussein, where the government allegedly lost revenue of RM500 million.
He said Najib should have more self-respect instead of embarrassing himself and his family.
