Get your extradition order, our IGP tells India [how to do its job]

Is the IGP trying to protect this WANTED man?

27/9/16: For some time now the Indian government has been keen to bring in Ananda Krishnan for questioning over some business deals that may have gone rotten in the sub-continent. Last week, a warrant of arrest for Ananda. The fact that Ananda became one of Malaysia's richest men during Dr Mahathir Mohamad's era got a lot of people very interested to his arrest. 

Naturally, our reporters asked IGP Khalid Abu Bakar if PDRM was going to help their Indian counterparts. This was what Khalid had to say:

“India’s arrest warrant cannot be enforced in Malaysia. India needs to apply for extradition via mutual legal assistance through the [Attorney-General’s] Chambers.” - IGP: India must get extradition order for billionaire Ananda Krishnan, lieutenant, Malay Mail Online 26/9/16

If you're thinking that I'm thinking that Khalid may be protecting the billionaire, you are wrong. I am totally with the IGP on this one. 

Read the last para of the story:

Bloomberg noted that India has previously issued “unrealistic” court orders including in 2014 when its Supreme Court ordered Samsung Electronics Co Chairman Lee Kun-Hee to appear before judges in a still-pending dispute over a US$1.4 million (RM5.7 million) payment. 

However, Bloomberg should have noted that "unrealistic" court orders are not confined to just India. The authorities in so-called developed countries are guilty of such high-handed, bullying conduct against non-citizens, including Malaysians! 

Read the story H E R E
One case that has been brought to my attention involves a Malaysian businessman, who stands to lose every property that he'd invested in Down Under since 2001 after the Australian authorities - and media - accused him of tax evasion (a claim the businessman denies). 

The businessman has filed an unprecedented lawsuit against the Australian government in the Kuala Lumpur courts. The case is up for mention next this Thursday 29/9/16. 

Now that ought to be interesting, don't you think?!


  1. Dear Dato.

    "The fact that Ananda became one of Malaysia's richest men during Dr Mahathir Mohamad's era got a lot of people very interested to his arrest."

    I doubt that.

    I think... what interest people today, on Ananda's arrest warrant ... was the fact that he had borrowed Najib's beleaguered 1MDB, 2 Billion (RM or USD... I'm not sure)... just to avoid default on interest-payment over its debts.
    And... as a token of appreciation, Ananda might got "some business deals that may have gone rotten in the sub-continent".

    Therefore, people's interest must be on what Najib's Government and the IGP are going to do, rather than on Dr.M.
    After-all, there're tenth of thousand Rakyats working with this crony of Dr.M, Ananda Krishnan... and the government also gained millions, perhaps Billion, taxing his fortune in the past and into the future.

    In-contrast to Najib's cronies... Razak Baginda, Deepak Carpet and now... Jho Low.... how many Rakyat can 'cari-makan' with them?
    And... gomen's revenue from the exploits of Najib's cronies?

    Why didn't this businessman file a lawsuit in the Australian courts?

    Gotcha there, Pak Rocky!

    It will be interesting to see if any judgement in the Malaysian courts can be enforced in Australia.

    Why didn't you mention that particular legal angle?

    As for "AK", let's see where this goes.

    One thing is for sure - the Modi government is not beholden to decisions made by a former minister in a former government.

    It will be interesting to see how India goes about putting forward extradition orders with regards Ananda and Ralph. The IGP is right in that India has to fulfil due process before Malaysian police can act.

    The developments in Australia with regards foreign ownership of properties is an interesting development too, though it most probably will not affect properties owned by permanent residents.

    The other day I had to grit my teeth and tolerate a former Malaysian who now is a U.S. citizen talking as if the sun shines out of the anal orifice of the Wall Street Journal,as if what it says is Gospel truth.
