- Admitted he had stolen (by downloading) company data - some 90 gigabytes worth - when he left in 2011.
- He gave the original documents to his ‘clients’ in electronic files.
- TMI reported: "I gave the original documents without any kind of alteration. "I can say that I gave those documents to two groups of people.
- "One was Ms Rewcastle-Brown and 'her IT guy' and the other was the Malaysian businessman and his colleague," he was quoted as saying.
- Claire has NEVER revealed FROM WHOM she obtained the documents and the 3 million emails.
- From whom did she get the documents?
- Claire said:"Why would I wish to alter anything?
- If I had, why haven't 1MDB and PetroSaudi brought out the evidence of such altering in all of the last five or so months?"
- The Edge has NEVER revealed FROM WHOM they obtained the documents etc.
- From whom did they get the documents?
- The Edge said it had handed over documents, printed emails and a hard disk to Bank Negara Malaysia, pertaining to 1MDB's joint venture with PetroSaudi.
- But from where did they get those stuff?
- Tony Pua has NEVER revealed FROM WHOM they obtained the documents etc.
- From whom did he get the documents?
Who do you believe - Justo, Claire, The Edge or Tony Pua? Info cannot simply drop from heaven.
Someone must have given it to the whistleblowers.
So who, if not Justo?
REASON FOR THE DOCUMENTS
Claire described the ex-PetroSaudi executive's (Justo's) confession as "bunkum".
Remember? Last month Claire posted so many pictures of Justo and stood up for him while she waxed lyrical about his wife, baby in the post ‘It’s all lies about Xavier?”
And now she calls him bunkum and TMI quoted Claire saying Justo was "full of untruths". Does this make sense to you? Why does she change tunes in less than a month?
"Why would I wish to alter anything? If I had, why haven't 1MDB and PetroSaudi brought out the evidence of such altering in all of the last five or so months?" ST quoted her as saying.
Note: The Edge, SR and Tony Pua never revealed how or from whom they received the information. All zipped up. All are endorsing each other. All are corroborating each other's statements. Logical?
How did they get the information?
So who, if not Justo?
THE BLACKMAIL AND THE DEAL
Justo said he asked PetroSaudi for more money in 2013 beyond the huge compensation package he received when he quit his job, but they turned him down.
It was after this that he was introduced to Rewcastle-Brown through a contact in Geneva.
Last month, Claire wrote in Sarawak Report:
“Friends and family are particularly upset about what they say are bogus allegations, again printed in the ‘exclusive reports’ in the New Straits Times, about blackmail.
It is also notable that Justo joined PetroSaudi well after the joint venture deal with 1MDB and so could have had no personal involvement in the issue of Malaysia’s missing millions.
“Justo was just involved in the petroleum activities of the company as it expanded after 2010. For him it was just a job, but he did not like the way the company was managed by its owners. In the end he walked out.”
Yesterday, Claire condemned Justo (as shown earlier) and said:
"What I have presented on 1MDB and has been clarified by The Edge and corroborated by several other official sources is a coherent explanation of events, versus the dodging, changing stories of 1MDB," she said.
The Edge had on Monday said in an editorial note denied stealing or paying for the documents, nor had it tampered with the information it obtained.
Tony Pua made many accusations in his blog here but never revealed from whom he received the information.
What can we make from his admissions and accusations?
All these statements do not tell us how they got the information.
So who, if not Justo?
He admitted to meeting with some people in Singapore to negotiate the handing over of PetroSaudi documents in his possession
Negotiated the price to give them all the copies of the documents in electronic files.
He said “The buyer also offered to pay me by cash".
CLAIRE REWCASTLE-BROWN and THE EDGE
Both parties above never denied nor admitted meeting Justo.
Tony Pua admitted he had met Clare Rewcastle-Brown, the editor of news portal Sarawak Report, many times, in Singapore, Indonesia and London.
Admissions, denials or silence do not tell us how they got the information.
So who, if not Justo?
PEOPLE AT MEETINGS
He admitted he first met Claire in Bangkok at the Plaza Athenee hotel and later in Singapore at the Fullerton Hotel, where she was with the others who were named in his confession following his arrest in Thailand last month.
CLAIRE REWCASTLE-BROWN, THE EDGE AND TONY PUA
Claire Rewcastle-Brown did not deny she was in Singapore at any time. The government can request via diplomatic channel for passport details from UK/Singapore if she did go there.
The Edge Financial Daily is based in Singapore. Tony Pua admitted he met Claire in Singapore.
The government can retrieve their passport entries/immigration clearance cards and compare if there are similarities in dates and destinations.
So if indeed there is a common trend in the passports of Claire, The Edge people involved and Tony Pua, who did they meet, if not Justo?
The government can request for computer forensic experts to verify data submitted by Justo and match with Claire, The Edge personnel accused ,Tony Pua and others implicated.
So if indeed there is a common trend in the Whatsapp and emails of Claire, The Edge people involved and Tony Pua, who did they meet, if not Justo?
The Straits Times article “ExPetroSaudi employee says he was never paid what prominent Malaysian businessman promised him further said the Malaysian businessman was among those named in Justo’s 22-page confession to Thai police.
He said he had earlier tried 3 times to open account with different banks in Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Hong Kong, but was refused each time without being told the reason.
Methodology In a jailhouse interview with Straits Times (Singapore), it was revealed:
Justo was offered US$2 million (RM7.6 million) by a prominent Malaysian businessman in exchange for the data he allegedly stole from the company.
"So I was supposed to go to Singapore every week or every other week to receive an envelope with a few thousand or tens of thousands, and repeat this process for months until the final amount will have been paid. And again I refused.
Claire Rewcastle-Brown Justo claimed Rewcastle-Brown was to receive the US$2 million from the buyer and gave him US$250,000 in cash every month, ostensibly for "consultancy services".
