“If indeed “Sarawak Report is more than confident over its legal defence,” you should have no problems meeting the 30th of August 2017 deadline, which expires exactly five days from now. So tell me, Clare, can Malaysians expect you to submit all the evidence to support your allegation that Najib paid Hadi RM90 million as a bribe?”
THE THIRD FORCE
Today, Clare Rewcastle Brown posted this comment in her site:
Sarawak Report is more than confident over its legal defence with respect to what it regards as a contrived case brought by the PAS Islamic Party of Malaysia against it, in a blatant attempt to silence honest reporting and comment that is overwhelmingly in the public interest in the United Kingdom as well as in Malaysia.
Contrary to Mr RPK’s allegations, the substance of the case has yet to be heard.
He would do well not to misrepresent the issues at this stage (or attribute false quotes) given that he himself has been put forward as one of PAS’s key witnesses in their claim, portrayed as an objective judge of the party’s reputation in the UK.
After all, he may have to take the stand in the witness box and face questions on these matters sometime soon.
We would relish encountering both him and Hadi Awang in a London court room and also Najib Razak, who according to these remarks published by RPK, appears to be hanging his own reputation on the outcome of this case brought by PAS, which continues to describe itself as an opposition party to BN.
Now, did you guys spot the idiocy yet?
It appears in a point that says, “Contrary to Mr RPK’s allegations, the substance of the case has yet to be heard.” Can this incondite of a yokel not differentiate articles written by RPK and those authored by me, The Third Force?
I mean, if she can’t tell it was me who wrote ‘Clare Rewcastle Desperately Changing Horses Midstream’ (READ HERE), how does she expect Malaysians to believe her ability to ‘sniff out criminals’ and ‘distinguish a genuine article from a fake one’?
Perhaps that explains why she has yet to furnish the London court with the cut and dry proof to back her claims that Najib bribed Dato’ Seri Abdul Hadi Awang RM90 million to solicit political favours – none of the “smoking gun evidences” she published via Sarawak Report were genuine. Perhaps she should shut down Sarawak Report altogether, what with the plummeting readership and all.
Or perhaps, she can fabricate more charts, shopping receipts, money trails and what have you, none of which will change the fact that she has until 4.00pm on 30th August 2017 to submit her defence. Will she do that, or will she take a leaf out of Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s playbook and apply for a court postponement?
After all, she had since last year to ready herself for the case. I mean, if she is so damn sure Najib paid Hadi RM90 million, surely she must have the “smoking gun” evidence to back her claim. So where is the evidence? Is it so heavy that she needs to charter helicopters to deliver it to the court? Is she getting it shipped from Timbuktu all the way through the icy terrains of Alaska?
Seriously, Ms. Rewcastle, what’s keeping you? Your hubby dearest?
If indeed “Sarawak Report is more than confident over its legal defence,” you should have no problems meeting the 30th of August 2017 deadline, which expires exactly five days from now. So tell me, Clare, can Malaysians expect you to submit all the evidence to support your allegation that Najib paid Hadi RM90 million as a bribe? Have you chartered the helicopter, or have you checked if your ship has passed Alaska?
Want me to speak to Nasa for you?
