Tong, 3 others to be hauled up following Justo's conviction - TRP, 18/8
AG gets Thai help, closing in on SR's Clare Rewcastle Brown - TMI, 18/8
17/8: Swiss national Xavier Justo was arrested on June 22. Today, just 56 days later, he pleads guilty and is sentenced to three years in Thai jail by a Thai court to blackmailing his former employer, PetroSaudi. I don't know about you, but I'm totally floored by how justice is done and seen to be done by our northern neighbours. The speed, the cold efficiency, the clinical execution of it all.
Now, remember, Justo's blackmail attempts have been linked by the Thai authorities to several individuals in Malaysia and at least one in the UK said to be in cahoot to topple the Malaysian Government or/and Prime Minister Najib Razak. None of these individuals have been arrested, let alone charged. We have heard of a warrant of arrest, volumes about co-conspirators and a mysterious, elderly master plotter in UMNO, etc. but that's about all.
