KUALA LUMPUR – July 15, 2015: A police report lodged today against Sarawak Report operator Claire Rewcastle Brown had accused her of taking orders from several prominent opposition leaders to undermine the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

The report was made public by Barisan Nasional strategic communications director Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan, who  urged the police to conduct a detailed investigation on Brown over the alleged conspiracy.

The report, which was made this morning at the Petaling Jaya police station also claimed that the alleged conspiracy between Brown and the opposition leaders includes the  forging of documents and evidences in an attempt to sabotage the Najib’s administration.

The report named DAP’s Petaling Jaya Utara member of parliament (MP) Tony Pua, PKR’s Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli , PKR Batu Lintang assemblyman See Chee How and DAP’s Bandar Kuching MP Chong Chieng Jen as those who have been allegedly giving orders to Brown on what to publish in Sarawak Report against Najib.

Rahman said the report had also claimed that Brown had falsified facts related to the issue of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), Najib and other issues that were closely tied to the state-owned investment vehicle.

He said the report was made along with a video recording and a copy of the email that allegedly was written by Brown as proofs.

Among the contents of the email dated March 1 includes Brown allegedly writing: “Thanks! Yes, it was quite a job! Sitting up night after night cleverly ‘forging’ all those documents!”

The complainant who lodged the report had also recorded confession from several Malaysians who worked with Sarawak Report until a few months ago.

“It has been brought to my attention this morning, a police report was made by a complainant in which  new evidence was submitted on the misconduct by Brown,” Rahman said during a press conference.

“The complainant has evidence of the existence of malicious intention by the parties concerned who has a mission titled “To Criminalise Najib and 1Malaysia Development Berhad”.

“If this is true, it is a terrible act that intended to discredit the good name and dignity of the government and to incite the people to hate the government,” said Rahman.

He added that the malicious intent – including falsification of facts made by the interested parties – would certainly put pressure on the country’s economy

Meanwhile, senior journalist blogger Datuk Ahirudin Attan in his latest blog posting elaborated on how the police report, believed to be lodged by a Sarawak Report editor had dealt a “mighty blow for Brown and her Malaysian marionettes” .

The Mole had obtained a copy of the police report.
