Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) governor Datuk Nor Shamsiah Mohd Yunus was reportedly named the Central Banker of the Year Asia-Pacific 2019 by the United Kingdom-based monthly financial magazine, The Banker (see news item below).
However, it was she who helped Tun Dr Mahathir sabotage 1MDB in the latter’s bid to demonise Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak and bring about the collapse of Barisan Nasional.
On the 21st of August 2018, I released a 95-point expose that detailed the names of companies, ministers, dignitaries, banks, lawyers and government linked entities that helped former British premier Tony Blair sabotage 1MDB.
The sabotage happens to be the world’s biggest conspiracy known to date and resulted in the downfall of Barisan Nasional.
An excerpt from the expose reads as follows:
Plan 1MDB destruct
74. 1MDB first decided to list its power assets in 2012, days after the fund purchased Genting’s Mastika units. On the 17thof August 2012, someone with knowledge of the matter confirmed that the fund had planned to raise as much as USD2 billion in an Initial Public Offering (IPO) to help lessen its debt load.
75. The plan was for the IPO to be made before the 13thgeneral election. Instead, 1MDB issued bonds worth USD3 billion which Goldman Sachs then underwrote and sold at prices above the preset minimum.
76. Word of the bond deal was communicated to Blair by a man named Jackson Eisenpresser, who fed the former British premier the A-Z pertaining the deal. Late in 2013, Eisenpresser told Blair that the IPO had been deferred to a date yet to be fixed by Najib and his men.
77. Members of Blair’s team contrived a plan to sabotage the IPO. Per plans, Mansour was to have come out on the 15thof August 2014 to announce that 1MDB had yet to fulfill part of its obligations to IPIC pursuant to agreements that existed between the two funds.
78. That month, certain senior officials from 1MDB were approached by representatives of Mahathir and Daim who wanted them to act as moles within 1MDB with the stated intent of sabotaging the IPO.
79. Maybank’s Michael and John (see character designations) were told to jam the loans so that the IPO would not go on. The person who issued these instructions was a senior executive directly under Bank Negara’s then Deputy Governor, Datuk Nor Shamsiah Mohd Yunus. I am told, the executive acted at Nor Shamsiah’s behest.
80. I am further told that Zeti was made aware of the instructions and had a hidden hand in planning the sabotage.
And here we have Shamsiah being named Central Banker of the Year while Mahathir plans the establishment of Republik Malaysia together with a state ruler, a Mufti, Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz and Tun Daim Zainuddin.
KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) governor Datuk Nor Shamsiah Mohd Yunus has been named the Central Banker of the Year Asia-Pacific 2019 by the United Kingdom-based monthly financial magazine, The Banker.
In a statement today, BNM said the annual awards for Central Banker of the Year celebrates officials that have best managed to stimulate growth and stabilise their country’s economy.
“They are conferred to central bankers across the world in categories including Global and Europe, Americas, Middle-East, Asia-Pacific and Africa,” it said.
According to BNM’s summary of The Banker’s article on the award, Nor Shamsiah had undertaken a raft of reforms with the aim of boosting gross domestic product, tackling poverty and promoting greater transparency in banking.
“She is also seen as being a solid choice in pushing for stronger regulations and accountability in the country’s banking system,” BNM said.
Meanwhile, the central bank said Nor Shamsiah also reduced the threshold for transactions that must be reported to the central bank to RM25,000 from RM50,000, effective Jan 1, 2019, in order to address black market cash payments in Malaysia.
“Looking to the future, Nor Shamsiah plans to strengthen the country’s use of technology, recognising that it can be implemented for a range of services.
“Tying in to her plans on strengthening the country’s regulatory landscape, the move towards digital payments is hoped to reduce dependence on cash and tackle financial crime,” it added.
