Cock-up over a yacht




Basically, the judge in this case, Justice Ratmoho has ruled the Equanimity seizure in Indonesian waters last Feb "invalid" and "without legal basis". What this means is that the Indonesian authorities and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, which made the high-profiled seizure of the yacht in a joint ops, screwed up big time. We don't know who screwed up who but that's for the Indonesian police and the FBI to sort out.  
Our immediate concern is, what else could those people have screwed up in this investigation? 
The DOJ had wanted people to believe the yacht was among "assets" bought using some US$4.5 billion allegedly siphoned off from Malaysia's 1MDB funds. This despite the 1MDB itself having repeatedly said that it had not lost any money. The other day in Muar, Johor, during a 1MDB briefing by Arul Kanda, YB Razali Ibrahim mentioned  the yacht. "They claimed they had found this yacht that belonged to us (1MDB, Malaysia, the Malaysian people, blah blah blah). How could they possibly find something of ours that we didn't lose in the first place?" 
Mr Ratmoho probably shares such a sentiment when making the ruling against the FBI and the local police on the seizure. He said there was no court ruling that the owner of the yacht had committed a crime. "If there is no crime, there should not be any confiscation," he said. 
Rafidah Aziz, currently the biggest critic of all things in the country, was one of those people who made such a fuss when the FBI and the Indonesians seized the yacht. Read her If I could find the Equanimity, why couldn't Malaysian authorities?  
Well,  Kak Piiidah, your answer is h e r e

Maybe she was eyeing to buy the Equanimity from afar, so makeup stories about it so that the she can get at rock bottom price

Kak Pidah ni masih mengalami menopausal stage, meroyan tak tentu arah. Arwah mak kata kalau masa muda kita banyak buat dosa dan suka berbohong, bila tua kita sentiasa hidup dalam keadaan haru biru dan ketakutan termasuk dgn bayang sendiri. Orang yg kita bohongi akan datang menghantui kita. balasan dari Allah swt tidak cuma di akhirat saja, malah di dunia juga, cuma kita tidak menyedarinya.

Salam Dato rocky.

Last night, I was really surprised when Bulletin TV3, sort of triumphantly devoted their first 10 minutes of reporting on this 'cock-up, Dato. Seems some sort of victory on the part of Jho Low and those who're hell bend on defending him.
Now... I'm very sure the FBI, or for that matter, the DoJ would be watching how our government and its controlled media, reacted to this 'cock-up', Dato.

So... better watch out how we play to the gallery of DoJ's cock-up. You know la... these sleazy Americans... how they coined-up that non-existent WMD to invade and toppled Sunnis-led Iraq and Libya, killed Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gadaffi to heighten Sunnis-Shiites rift.

Who knows... this 'cock-up' might be the perfect excuse for them to speed-up criminal proceeding, now that Najib is a lame-duck Prime Minister. Maybe, expiry of political immunity too. Therefore, the DoJ is longer, civilly and legally, bound to name him as MO1.

Therefore, don't be surprised if DoJ commence civil proceeding in a few days time, most probably... next Tuesday. After all, they've promised to liquidate the forfeited assets and returned it to the people of Malaysia. Of-course, when Kleptocracy no longer holds power.

Of course, no analyst will dare predict a BN defeat because they are afraid that if they predict BN will lose and instead BN wins, they will get fired and have shame. If they predict status quo and BN actually loses, nobody will blame them because “everybody was stupid at the same time.” This is called ‘status quo’ bias, one of the worst bias to have in a volatile market.
