Najib tried to bribe me to shut up: Mahathir

  • Mahathir writes on his blog that PM Najib has attempted to "bribe" him not to attack him on the 1MDB issue.

PETALING JAYA, Dec 10 (MySinchew) -- Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad wrote on his blog yesterday that prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had attempted to "bribe" him not to attack him on the 1MDB issue.

Mahahtir said Najib always approached him and asked him what he wanted.

He said back then he thought Najib was sincere, so he proposed to him several development projects. However, he later discovered that the prime minister was actually trying to "bribe" him so that he would stop attacking him on the 1MDB issue.

He explained why he kept raising the 1MDB issue, because the government had lost hundreds of billions of ringgit and this made it impossible for him to keep quiet. Moreover, he said suddenly RM2.6 billion was found in the prime minster's personal bank accounts.

Mahathir insisted that no prime minister in this country had been so rich, and whatever the reason could be, he said RM2.6 billion was simply unjustified for a prime minister.
