1MDB: Truth At Last

Press Statement by Datuk Huan Cheng Guan

The PM and all involved in the 1MDB are now vindicated with the arrest of Xavier Andre Justo, a Swiss national and former official of PetroSaudi International Ltd.

Thai police who arrested him in Koh Samui on Monday charged him with attempting to blackmail and extort the company said it was part of a plot to discredit Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, Malaysian sources.

All detractors who made their baseless and vile accusations on the PM and 1MDB must now retract their statements and apologise for not verifying the information they sourced from Sarawak Report.

According to the NST, “some of the emails and documents published on the blog were found to be tampered with, bringing into question the veracity of these allegations.”

The amount of damage on the prestige, repute, and international standing of our country, our Prime Minister, our economy, and all individuals/organizations accused in this bizarre plot is colossal.

Steps must be taken to take action against all individuals, news agencies, writers who have done irreparable damage because of their footloose and irresponsible accusations.

That any citizen is ready to assume that anything in the Internet is truth shows the shallow mentality and complete absence of thinking skills.

That writers can churn out article after article, slamming the government WITHOUT checking on the veracity of the purported documents in Sarawak Report is a disgrace to the media world. Are they willing to repair the damage inflicted by irresponsible writing?

It does not take much effort to check the forensics of those documents or to verify the information via a simple phone call.

Months before this arrest, I had already done the investigations and discovered for myself the discrepancies. However, I never shared it because no matter what, majority of Malaysians had already believed the worst of the authorities, choosing to worship unverified evidence and to support the former Prime Minister’s vicious crusade to oust our PM.

Daily, Tun Dr Mahathir’s unending tirade about 1MDB and our PM had practically poisoned the minds of Malaysians against our PM and the professional standing of 1MDB, disgracing our nation in the eyes of the world.

An international cyber-security firm, Protection Group International (PGI) hired to conduct an in-depth investigation into the source of the data published on the Internet, as well as verify its authenticity revealed there is clear “evidence of the systematic theft of confidential company data by Justo prior to his departure from PetroSaudi” and that the “data was tampered with after it was stolen from PetroSaudi. It was believed that much of this tampered data subsequently appeared on Sarawak Report and served as the backbone of the blog’s claims of impropriety against 1MDB.” (More at NST)

SR provided excerpts from emails allegedly sent by the parties involved but these emails DO NOT provide the email header which, according to Wiki forensics, “are lines of metadata attached to each email that contain lots of useful information for a forensic investigator.” Hence, the IP addresses of the sender and receiver of the emails, signature fields, letterheads are missing – all of which can verify the authenticity of the evidence.

The point is SR and all other writers who slammed the Prime Minister and 1MDB officials NEVER bothered to check the authenticity of the documents, preferring to discredit our authorities even though they had all the contact details of those involved.

Why? Who is behind this malicious campaign? These people must be questioned and punished if found guilty.

As for other public figures, that has discredited our Prime Minister and 1MDB locally and internationally, a public apology on an international scale is mandatory to restore our country’s reputation.

Is Tun Dr Mahathir willing to eat his words?
