Bloggers write that Saudi king’s visit exonerates Najib

KUALA LUMPUR – Feb 28, 2017: Several bloggers have written to point out that the official visit of King Salman to Malaysia has debunked the slander on the RM2.6 billion donation to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

According to them, this is contrary to the arguments by Najib’s detractors that the money was embezzled from SRC International Sdn. Bhd. and then deposited into Najib’s personal bank account.

Anonymous pro-establishment bloggers at the Unspinners blog wrote that the Saudi Arabian ruler would not have visited the country if it is true that Najib had embezzled the money while telling the people it was donated by the Saudi royal family.

“If Najib had really stolen the money, why would the Saudi Arabian king visit Malaysia?

“Hasn’t Saudi Arabia confirmed that the donation came from that country?” the bloggers wrote.

Captain (R) Rahmat Haniff of Seademon Says echoes a similar sentiment, sarcastically adding that Najib’s detractors should now come forward and prove their case.

“Every detractor has gone missing or in hiding or crying beneath the shower as the best opportunity to hand over a suit over the missing RM2.6 billion slowly disappears.

“This is the best time to sue, people.  Not only did the Saudi royal family give RM2.6 billion, it has now brought RM62.26 billion on this trip!  Show some balls! This is the time” the blogger added.

Several other bloggers also pointed out that the visit contributes to stronger security and economic ties between the two countries.

Zakhir Mohamed or Big Dog wrote that the visiting ruler validates and backs Malaysia’s effort to help alleviate the position of other Muslims.

The blogger added that the visit has resulted in the RM31 billion investment in the Petronas RAPID project at Pengerang.

“The validation and backing by King Salman, who holds the revered title as Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and willingness to make the rare journey with Malaysia as the first stop is also a mark of respect and recognition.”

King Salman, who arrived here on Sunday, is on a four-day state visit to Malaysia, the first to this region since his ascension to the throne in 2015.

Earlier today, King Salman and Najib witnessed the signing of four memoranda of understanding between both governments.
