Saying the rush with which Prime Minister Najib Razak in settling the IPIC case is indicative of the latter’s intentions.

The portal said the reason being that there is no money to be made from selling 1MDB’s fictional ‘units’ and so in the end that cash is going to have to be raised direct from the taxpayer through his Ministry of Finance, which is ultimately responsible for meeting the commitment.

“Once that happens … Malaysian’s will be faced with the realisation that Najib will probably have to raise taxes to pay for it all,” said the portal.

It said the ministry of finance does not have that kind of money to pay for the 1MDB scandal settlement with Abu Dhabi’s IPIC.

“The party will be on you the voter and you the taxpayer!,” it said.Follow us on Social Media
