Why The Edge willing to pay RM2 million just for a story?


(theunspinners) – Documents in the public domain show that in February 2015 Malaysian media owner Datuk Tong Kooi Ong and British blogger Clare Rewcastle Brown offered to pay $2million for stolen data relating to 1MDB.

The offer was made without having seen what was in the data. So what convinced them to make such an offer? And how were they put in touch with the seller?

The answer lies in details that have emerged of a meeting in London to plan to oust Malaysian Prime Minster Najib Razak. These details directly link the $2million offer and Rewcastle Brown and Tong with the plan to oust Najib Razak. A fact the buyers themselves confirmed.
