Vell Paari wants probe into Wikileaks memo on lobby 'against Najib'
PETALING JAYA: MIC wants police to investigate a Wikileaks memo alleging of a lobby in Washington seeking to disassociate the United States administration from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Treasurer-general Datuk Seri S. Vell Paari said the allegations could result in negative political and economic implications for the country.
Last Sunday, anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks released e-mail exchanges between Soros Fund Management (SFM) spokesperson Michael Vachon and chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign John Podesta on its website.
The exchange contained a memo by Open Society Global fellow John Pang calling for groups in the United States to distance themselves from Najib.
Vell Paari said it is imperative that the police investigate Pang and his links to billionaire investor George Soros via the Open Society Global foundation.
He said Pang is “obviously the proxy” of Soros in South-East Asia and “his attempt to destabilize the country must be investigated without fear or favour”.
“He (Pang) is now being exposed as a mastermind who is determined to sabotage the good relationship between the US administration and our government,” Vell Paari said.
He said Pang’s attempts could lead to the installation of a “puppet Prime Minister in Malaysia” and the country would stand to lose its independence and sovereignty.
Vell Paari suggested that Pang’s attempts could be categorised as “New Age Terrorism” where the international media such Wall Street Journal and billionaires like Soros “attempt to cripple Malaysia”.
“I hope the Singapore government will not allow John Pang to operate his New Age Terrorism from within its borders,” he said warning Opposition members to avoid aligning themselves with Soros.
Pang is a Senior Fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore.
The memo, titled “The TPP and Malaysia’s Corruption Crisis”, questions Malaysia’s involvement in the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and recommends that the United States seek the release of opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
In the email dated March 6, Vachon had told Podesta: “And I think George will want to talk about this, among other things which is believed to be a reference for a future meeting with Soros, a well known donor to Clinton’s election campaign.”
Around 50,000 of Podesta’s emails are in the possession of Wikileaks after it was hacked earlier this month.
