Malaysia in darkest of political times, says Najib's brother

PETALING JAYA - In the darkest of political times, we must remember to place the country and rakyat first, says the Prime Minister's brother Datuk Seri Nazir Razak.

The prominent banker posted a picture late Sunday on Instagram of the National Monument together with the caption: "They gave their lives so we could build a nation. In this darkest of political times we must remember to place the country & the rakyat first. Not personal interests, not personal loyalties, not even party politics."

The National Monument honours those who died in the country's struggle for freedom.

This is the latest post by the CIMB group chairman via the photo sharing service.

Last week he posted an image of a signboard bearing the words "Truth. Next exit" together with a caption that read: "I hope so. Our institutions must get us there quickly. Malaysians feeling truth-deprived - depressing and divisive. After truth we can find reconciliation."

Nazir, who is the younger brother of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, has actively spoken out on the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) issue.

In May, he slammed 1MDB's top executives for failing to turn up for the Public Accounts Committee hearing.

He also previously questioned the state investment arm's lateness in beginning its March 2015 audit.

More recently, Nazir has been linked with the setting up of a new non-governmental organisation with like-minded individuals such as Global Movement of Moderates chief executive officer Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah over concerns regarding Malaysia's present socio-political landscape.
