Sometime in December 2014, Mahathir chaired a high profile roundtable in London that discussed plans to overthrow Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, the (then) Prime Minister of Malaysia.
The meeting was attended by Tun Daim Zainuddin and some of Malaysia’s foremost capitalists, the most prominent among them being Tan Sri Ananda Krishnan, the person who ended up selling Tanjong Energy Holdings Sdn Bhd to 1MDB for USD2.81 billion.
Another prominent capitalist who attended the meeting was Dato’ Justin Leong, the man who architected Getting Malaysia’s expansion in the United Kingdom (UK).
During the meeting, Daim set a ballpark figure of RM2 billion as the amount needed to trigger a world media campaign against Najib and to grease the palms of some forty to fifty Members of the Malaysian Parliament from across the political divide.
THE THIRD FORCE
(republished, first published in December 2016)
In 1969, the world’s most notorious anarchist-billionaire, George Soros, founded the Double Eagle Fund for Arnhold & S. Bleichroeder, a New York based investment bank he was then the vice-chairman of. With every intent of funding terrorist related activity, Soros decided to set the company up as an offshore entity on the island of Curaç in the Netherlands Antilles to operate beneath the radars of federal regulators. Now, it didn’t take long before the billionaire earned a reputation for being “able to see into the future” and “predict what was to come” like no other.
The thing is, Soros was able to anticipate circumstances in the financial market with a degree of accuracy that remains unparalleled to this day. However, that accuracy had nothing to do with foresight or a knack for seeing into the future. He simply had friends high up in media who would help him manipulate the market with biased forecasts that served to his intrigues. Soros would later use these friends to publish subversive material which he would then use to trigger regime changes around the world.
Back then, he engaged in extremely convoluted holding schemes that made it virtually impossible to trace the ownerships of his companies. In 1970, he went on to establish the Soros Management Fund (which later came to be known as the Soros Fund) and filled every position in the company with non-Americans. Today, the fund has on board a group of highly notorious Swiss and Italian financiers who are in one way or the other linked to the Rothschilds. These are the very same people running companies linked to the Open Societies Foundation (OSF) that helped Bersih and the Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) bankroll anti-Najib activity.
Early in 2015, the OSF and Quantum began funding a cabal of media hitmen to assist Dr Mahathir Mohammad launch spite filled campaigns against 1MDB and the (then) Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak. Unbeknownst to many, some managers within the Caymans based Quantum Partners LP were complicit with Soros in channelling the funds.
Plans to destroy Khadem Al Qubaisi
Soros’ hitmen weren’t the only hands hired to destroy Najib. Sometime in December 2014, Mahathir chaired a high profile roundtable in London that discussed ways to overthrow the (then) Malaysian premier. The meeting was attended by Tun Daim Zainuddin and some of Malaysia’s foremost capitalists, the most prominent among them being Tan Sri Ananda Krishnan, the person who ended up selling Tanjong Energy Holdings Sdn Bhd to 1MDB for USD2.81 billion.
Another prominent capitalist who attended the meeting was Dato’ Justin Leong, the man who architected Getting Malaysia’s expansion in the United Kingdom (UK). During the meeting, Daim set a ballpark figure of RM2 billion as the amount needed to trigger a world media campaign against Najib and to grease the palms of some forty to fifty Members of the Malaysian Parliament from across the political divide.
By then, Mahathir had long sealed an agreement with Clare Rewcastle Brown to run the gamut of conspiracy against Najib and 1MDB. The agreement came two months after people linked to former British premier Tony Blair offered Clare a glimpse into information that pertained 1MDB and its dealings with the Mideast. Soros, who put Blair up to the idea, wanted Clare to jolt Chinese and Mideast investors out of their existing partnership agreements with the Malaysian fund.
Jumbled in Blair’s stack of information were details to an agreement 1MDB had entered with the Abu Dhabi based International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC). The agreement was for the funds to guarantee obligations (principal and associated interests) undertaken by two of 1MDB’s subsidiaries, 1MDB Energy Limited and 1MDB Energy (Langat) Limited. The obligations related to bonds worth USD3.5 billion that the subsidiaries issued to raise funds needed for the acquisition of two independent power producers (IPPs), Tanjong Energy Holdings Sdn Bhd and Genting Sanyen Power Sdn Bhd.
Needless to say, the manner in which 1MDB muscled its way into power generation compounded to the frustrations Clare’s husband, Andrew Brown. If you recall, I detailed in part three (READ HERE OR FOLLOW LINK BELOW) how Clare and Andrew were perturbed by the multi-billion dollar agreement the State Grid Development Corporation of China (SGCC) entered with 1MDB. Andrew wanted his wife to funnel into the minds of the Chinese the idea that the Government of Malaysia (GoM) was prone to shady business deals.
As the story goes, both Blair and Soros intended to implicate Khadem Al Qubaisi, then the Managing Director of IPIC, as a key figure in a scheme to siphon millions upon millions of dollars from 1MDB. The duo was not pleased that Qubaisi had blackmailed the chair of IPIC by refusing to return company assets worth some USD20 billion or so. Qubaisi had obtained beneficial interests in those assets while serving as Chairman of Aabar Investments PJS (Aabar), a subsidiary of IPIC fully owned by the government of Abu Dhabi.
