Critics will never be happy with Najib: Malaysia minister


PETALING JAYA - Critics will never be happy with anything the Prime Minister does, said Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak.

The Communications and Multimedia Minister said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's critics will not be satisfied even if their demands are met.

"The Prime Minister's critics alleged that Najib stole RM2.6bil of 1MDB's (1Malaysiad Development Bhd) money and transferred it to his personal bank account. They then demanded to know whether this was true.

"MACC then announced that the money was not from 1MDB but was from a donor. Now some want to know why it took so long to confirm that," he said in a blog post yesterday. Salleh argued that no amount of explanation by Najib would satisfy those asking for his explanation.

"So what is the issue now? Should they not be happy that the money was not stolen from 1MDB as alleged? That is what they demanded to know and that was what MACC confirmed.

"If Najib tells them that the donation did not come with strings attached, would they believe him?" he asked.
