"Suddenly, everyone who was part of the conspiracy to block Najib from taking over is a strong Najib supporter from way back in time." - Raja Petra Kamarudin in Now that the shit has hit the fanThe TV3 Interview: Why RPK really did it. According to RPK in his latest article, he did the interview "so that the story of my statutory declaration can be brought back to focus and corrected".
"Somehow, the statutory declaration I signed and what I actually said in that statutory declaration has been lost. And it has been lost because the focus is on my so-called allegation rather than what I actually said in the statutory declaration. Most seem to not understand that I did not make any allegation against Rosmah ..."That may be the truth. Or not. With RPK, you can tell by now that you can't really tell. But in my view, if RPK had wanted the shit to hit the fan, he could have used the Courts. He was being sued by some of the parties he mentioned in the SD and what better opportunity to bring on his "reliable informers" other than the Courts of law. He would have the best lawyers in the country to keep him out of jail.
But he did not. He fled the country, instead. And with him goes the opportunity to prove that he did not really allege Rosmah of supervising the murder of Altantuya, that his SD was just about him being reliably informed about this and that.
One thing RPK has made clear in his latest posting is that he's coming after Bul and John Pang and Din Merican for basically playing him out. He claimed that these dudes were working for Anwar and Ku Li and they were the ones who wanted to block Najib from becoming Prime Minister ...
"When all hell broke loose I contacted Bul and met up with him. I asked him for a copy of the confidential military intelligence report. Bul said that they no longer have it. The entire file has been shredded, Bul said.
Surely they have a back up copy, I said.
Sorry, no back up copy. The report no longer exists. In fact, the entire file no longer exists.
The whole objective of this exercise was to block Najib Tun Razak from taking over as Prime Minister. If Abdullah Ahmad Badawi can be forced to resign, and if Najib can be blocked from taking over, then Tengku Razaleigh could become the next prime minister.
Earlier, a meeting was held in Tengku Razaleigh’s office. About 30 people attended the meeting cum buka puasa. A few Umno bloggers such as Big Dog and so on were there. PKR people like Adlan Benan Omar and Rafizi Ramli also came. And many others whom you will know if I mention their names also attended (I will leave it to them whether they want to surface, but they know who I am talking about).
The purpose of this meeting was to explore how it can be engineered so that Tengku Razaleigh can take over as prime minister. Bul, of course, was the ‘main speaker’ with all the ideas on how this can be achieved.
Today, Bul declares that he is a strong Najib supporter and that he has always supported Najib from way back. Suddenly he is no longer the man who was scheming on how to block Najib from taking over so that his boss, Tengku Razaleigh, can be the new prime minister.
Bul, who promised me that he will make sure I will never go to jail and that the military intelligence report would surface the instant the police come for me, today, tells me that the report no longer exists.
The question is, did the report even exist in the first place? And Din Merican, who spoke to Anwar and who assured me that Lt Kol Azmi is very reliable and John Pang, who spoke to Tengku Razaleigh on the same matter and gave that same assurance, have washed their hands of this whole matter.
I can understand Din leaving PKR to go back to the other side. He did tell everyone he is disillusioned with the party and he is not the first or the last. John Pang, however, is now with CIMB Jakarta and we all know who owns CIMB.
Suddenly, everyone who was part of the conspiracy to block Najib from taking over is a strong Najib supporter from way back in time."
There you have it. RPK has been stabbed in the back and he knows it now. Betrayed by people who today have kept their distance from him. And like the P. Ramlee movie Enam Jahanam, RPK is going after them one by one.
At 8 tonight, on Buletin Utama TV3, in the second part of his interview with Ashraf, RPK goes after another individual who has screwed him good.
