"INI JELAS MERUPAKAN SATU TINDAKAN YANG BERTUJUAN MENCABAR SISTEM PERUNDANGAN MALAYSIA, MENCALAR KREDIBILITI AGENSI PENGUATKUASA TEMPATAN DAN MENGUNDANG CAMPUR TANGAN ASING DALAM SISTEM DEMOKRASI NEGARA INI. TINDAKAN BELIAU INI MERUPAKAN SATU BENTUK SABOTAJ YANG BOLEH MENJEJASKAN KESTABILAN EKONOMI DAN KEDAULATAN NEGARA INI." - Khalid Abu Bakar, Inspector-General of Police, via Facebook
"This is clearly and act to challenge the Malaysian legal system, taint the credibility of local enforcement agencies, and open Malaysia's democratic system to foreign interference. His action is a form of sabotage that can destabilise this country's economy and sovereignty."
If there's one thing I will not stand for, it's Malaysians who go running to foreign authorities to undermine their own people back home, claiming that they'd exhausted all avenues for recourse locally. That was why I could not support Hindraf, Bersih, and MCLM, to name a few, or when the Opposition went overseas purportedly to get anti-graft authorities there to arrest their political foes government instead of putting thier trust in our own MACC. I'm all for Malaysians abroad like Bakri Musa and (more recently) RPK who make it their part time job to criticize the country and her leaders in their writings and speeches when they could have enjoyed their haze-free days and Umnoless lives. Theirs, no matter how harsh and blunt, are constructive criticisms and not acts of sabotage.
But Khairuddin, he's never known for being critical of anything. Until his police report against the 1MDB late last year, he was an obscure local Umno leader in Opposition-ruled Penang remembered for his notorious role as the publisher of the 50 Dalil book that helped bring down Anwar Ibrahim, then the Deputy Prime Minister, for abuse of power and sodomy. In the past weeks, Khairuddin has lodged reports against PM Najib Razak in the UK, Switzerland, France and Hong Kong.
This week he was supposed to have flown to the US to get the FBI to investigate Najib and 1MDB for money laundering or stuff like that.
Stuff which, accoridng to Dr M, could lead to Najib's arrest once he leaves Malaysia.
