There is a viral interview on social media where the carpet merchant Deepak claims that Rosmah and Najib have stashed away a whopping RM100bn in some overseas destination.
True or false, the fact that a citizen has boldly stepped forward to speak openly of this unbelievable, ugly sum of hoarded wealth means the government of the day cannot remain silent.
Patriot reiterates that good citizenry demands an accountable, transparent and speedy investigation into Deepak’s claim.
Patriot believes that the need for police reports or a report lodged with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission before investigations are expedited is absurd.
The prime minister who with speed recently summoned an investigation of a former attorney general must account to the citizens’ concern over this latest RM100bn theft claim or allegation.
Ismail Sabri Yaakob must likewise publicly announce a call to investigate with no stone unturned and without fear or favour.
How will the powers that be handle this latest revelation implicating Najib and Rosmah will permanently set a benchmark for the significance and importance of patriotism, respect for the rule of law and national values in our nation?
