Dr M is probably cooking up a fresh charge against Najib as we speak…

The Third Force

Dr Mahathir Mohamad keeps shifting the goalpost to divert people’s attention from his many blunders.

When he first announced the scrapping of China-backed projects to help the Government of Malaysia (GoM) reduce its debt, he never once pointed his finger at Jho Low or accused the Penang born billionaire of contributing to that debt.

But the minute Moody’s rubbished his 80.3 percent Debt-to-GDP ratio claim, Low quickly became the scapegoat and was accused of manipulating deals Najib entered with the Chinese government.

I am told, Mahathir even insisted that the charges (brought against Najib recently) be timed to coincide with Equanimity’s arrival at port Klang to rub in the idea that “the purchase of the yacht had something to do with money stolen from 1MDB.”
