Tapes with Latheefa may be evidence of criminal act by producer


The Star Online: MACC claims ‘criminal conspiracy at highest level’ implicating Najib, Rosmah (updated).

The MACC releasing the tapes appears to be an act of frustration. It does not look good for the prosecution.

. . . This may be subjudice and contempt of court.

The court is only about law.

It’s not about ethics, moral values, theology, sin, God, justice or the truth.

The rule of law is the basis of the Constitution.

Law is not just about the letter of the law but the spirit of the law too with greater emphasis on the latter.

Only communists and Islamists harp on letter of the law to rule by law.

Rule by law is not law at all.

Saya taruh sama kau, “Law is ultimately the power of language, especially the English language”.

Extract from the link . . .

It’s true that when an individual records another for a domestic purpose (including the use of home CCTV) they are not subject to any data protection laws.

You and I may record a police officer on our phones whenever we wish without their knowledge or permission.

They on the other hand do not share the same rights.

They are agents of the state, and any information gathered during the execution of their duties makes them subject to the same data protection laws as every other state official.

It doesn’t matter WHY a police officer is recording, all that matters is whether or not the recording can be classed as personal data.

In this instance, the police officer may think that he is making the recording for a domestic purpose. It is after all his personal mobile phone and it’s not a police interview. But talking to anyone during the execution of his duties would be classed as police business.

He is not socialising with these potential complainants.

He is on duty.

In uniform. Carrying the full weight of office that no doubt affords him to speak to such people in the first place.

Therefore any recording made would be subject to the same data protection and surveillance laws as any other means of gathering police data.

The fact that he made the recording on his own mobile phone for his own protection or note-taking is irrelevant.

Latheefa Koya can apologise by appointing me as MACC Commissioner.


The MACC releasing the tapes appears to be an act of frustration. It does not look good for the prosecution.


Najib: They’re not a democracy, they can sit…

The above is very damaging although true.


This reads like a very bad draft script by a very bad writer for a low-grade Hollywood movie.

The audience won’t be able to follow.

Here is a list of who was in the audio clips and other names that were mentioned in the conversations.

Individuals who were heard conspiring with each other in the audio:

1. Datuk Seri Najib Razak

The 66-year-old former prime minister is no stranger to corruption scandals especially surrounding the 1MDB saga. Najib is currently defending himself against seven charges related to SRC International after the judge previously ruled that the prosecution has successfully shown prima facie.

Three are for criminal breach of trust over a total RM42 million of SRC International funds while entrusted with its control as the prime minister and finance minister then, three more are for laundering the RM42 million, and the last is for abusing the same positions for self-gratification of the same sum.

Najib is still a respected figure in Umno and BN, appearing in several by-election campaigns for the former ruling coalition.

2. Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor

The 68-year-old wife to Najib is currently also facing two corruption charges in connection with a solar hybrid project for Sarawak schools. In the first charge, she is alleged to have solicited RM187.5 million or 15 per cent of the project cost from Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin as inducement to help secure the project.

She also faces a second count of receiving RM1.5 million from Saidi as her ‘reward’. The second corruption charge is for the RM5 million reward she allegedly received from Saidi at her home on Jalan Langgak Duta, Taman Duta in 2016.

Rosmah’s opulent lifestyle first came under intense scrutiny after the police seized hundreds of luxury handbags, including Hermes ones, and a stash of jewellery from apartment units belonging to the couple’s family.

3. Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad

The former 54-year-old MACC chief is alleged to have conspired with Najib to cover up investigations into the 1MDB corruption scandal. He was also allegedly responsible for the leakage of information from the AGC back then in 2016.

4. Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim

Fifty-four-year-old Abdul Azeez is the Baling MP and former Lembaga Tabung Haji chairman.

He is facing graft charges involving RM5.2 million and money laundering charges of RM140 million.

Abdul Azeez also faces a second and third charge for receiving RM4 million from the same person as gratification for securing the upgrading works of the Pantai Baru Coastal Expressway Project worth RM644,480,000, through limited tender from the Works Ministry. He is also facing another eight counts of money laundering of RM140 million.

5. Sheikh Mohammed Zayed Al-Nahyan

Known by his initials MbZ, the 58-year-old is the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, and has been implicated in assisting and conspiring with Najib to cover up his corruption scandals from day one when the DoJ entered the 1MDB case in 2016.

6. Sheikh Mansour Zayed Al-Nahyan

Often referred to as Sheikh Mansour, the 49-year-old is an Emirati royal who is the deputy prime minister of the UAE. He is also the minister of presidential affairs and was also implicated in the audio recordings for assisting Najib to cover up for his stepson Riza Aziz who was dragged into the 1MDB scandal too.

7. Datuk Amhari Efendi Nazaruddin

He is Najib’s former special officer. The 44-year-old was the eighth prosecution witness to testify against Najib in the latter’s corruption trial over 1MDB scandal.

In the recording revealed by the MACC, he was also heard conspiring to arrange meetings between Najib and the Abu Dhabi crown prince’s representatives.
