They’re out to derail my political career, says Najib


Former prime minister Najib Razak has called out a political motive behind a bankruptcy notice served on him yesterday.

PETALING JAYA: Najib Razak has accused the authorities of seeking to derail his political career by taking bankruptcy action against him. He said it was linked to Umno’s decision not to work with PPBM at the next general election.

In a lengthy Facebook post, the former prime minister said that the bankruptcy action would result in him being disqualified as MP for Pekan, paving the way for a by-election.

“I won’t be eligible to contest in the party polls and the election.”

Najib also said he would lose all his savings which he is currently surviving on and to pay his lawyer’s fee.

He said the notice would also mean his belongings and money that were seized for his corruption trial would not be returned.

Najib went on to say that apart from Umno’s recent decision on working with PPBM made at the general assembly, he was also certain the bankruptcy notice had to do with a recent survey by Utusan TV which revealed he was the front runner for the prime ministerial post.

However, despite this he said he would not be cowed by those who are abusing their powers to persecute him.

“I will still continue to speak up for Malaysians.”

Yesterday, the Inland Revenue Board filed a bankruptcy notice against Najib for failing to pay RM1.69 billion in additional tax arrears for 2011 to 2017.

Najib has disputed the tax assessment, saying that he was being assessed tax on a RM2 billion donation, most of which had been returned. - FMT
