ニューズウィーク日本版 オフィシャルサイトに マレーシアの総選挙の記事(上記)が出ている。


このところ マレーシアの新聞記事は もっぱら 総選挙関連記事だらけだ。


そのほとんどが ナジブ側をサポートする内容だ。



1MDBに関しても ナジブ はテレビ対談で疑惑を明確に否定し、PAC (公会計委員会)による調査と勧告に従った措置(土地のMOF移管)を発表した上で、これまでの1MDBの功績を説明している。




更に マハティールの牙城であるランカウイ選挙区に関しても ナジブ は ランカウイ観光促進の為の新18構想を発表するなど、攻撃は最大の防御なり と言う作戦だろう、あの手この手での選挙対策を展開中だ。



以下は 最近の盛りだくさんの新聞記事からのごく一部だが、それぞれタイトルを見れば分かるとおりナジブ側の主張を紹介する内容だ。

Najib: 1MDB failed because of opposition politicking

記事のうち ナジブ が1MDB疑惑に直接答えている部分があるので、英文のままだが、下記に ピックアップしておこう。


公会計委員会(PAC)が いわゆる第三者委員会に実質的に相当するのかどうかは分からないが、106ページあるPACのレポートはインターネットで公開されているそうだ。


野党は1MDBのことを根も葉もなく言い立てる前に まず しっかりとPACレポートを読むべきなのだ とナジブは反論している。


そうか、PACレポートが公開されているなら、そのうち 私も 読んでみようかなぁ。

The session was hosted by NTP Advisor to the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Idris Jala, who had asked Najib on why the 1MDB issue remains a point of criticism despite the government’s numerous successes.


Najib noted that he had ordered for 1MDB to be investigated following criticisms and allegation hurled by certain quarters.


"I have ordered for 1MDB to be probed by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), Bank Negara, the police and the Auditor General.


"1MDB is the most investigated body in our country. PAC even has representatives from the opposition like Tan Seng Giaw and Tony Pua from DAP.


"The report has been provided and tabled and uploaded on the internet. It is a 106-page report and I encourage all parties to read it," said Najib.


He said firstly, nowhere in the PAC report did it state that he stole money from 1MDB.


“Secondly, in the PAC report, whether I did anything wrong, did I do wrong? No.


“The third was on whether the donation from Saudi Arabia was 1MDB’s money. The answer is absolutely no. So on this matter, I would like to clarify that the report concluded that I did nothing wrong,” he said.


The PAC, he said, had also concluded that 1MDB was a business model with an uncertain foundation.


He said 1MDB’s capital injection from the government was only RM1 million.


Commenting on claims that Malaysia is about to go bankrupt due to debts, Najib, who is also Finance Minister, said the claims are baseless.


He said Malaysia’s public debt ratio to gross domestic product (GDP) is relatively low, and about half of some developed countries.


He said the only time when the ratio hit its peak or record high was in 1986 (during the tenure of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's administration), when the debt ratio stood at 103.4 per cent to GDP.


As of today, Malaysia's public debt ratio to GDP was recorded at 50.8 per cent, he added.


According to the NTP Annual Report 2017, the ratio of public debt to GDP last year was at 51 per cent, well below the government's self imposed debt limit of 55 per cent.


"If you look at other developed countries, their debt ratio to GDP is high.


"For example, Japan currently has 240 per cent public debt ratio to GDP. The United States is at 108 per cent, Singapore at 111 per cent and United Kingdom 89 per cent," Najib said


He said this is proof that the current government is prudent and accountable in managing its debt.

興味深いのは マレーシアでは政治家が外国からの寄付をもらっても何ら問題はない という点だ。

日本やアメリカとは 違うらしい。


旧宗主国の英国はどうなんだろう。 そのうち 調べてみよう。
