Video: ‘You are a nuisance!’ Najib walks out of Al Jazeera interview after barrage of questions


“Good thing we deported you. You are a nuisance!” Najib Razak gets all riled up moments before he storms out of an Al Jazeera interview. The hot seat just got a little too hot for comfort.

As Mary Ann Jolley grilled Najib about donations and diamonds, high-profile murder cases, his relationship with Jho Low, and his stepson’s newfound wealth, the former Prime Minister grew visibly agitated and stood up, threatening to walk out.

Once pacified, Najib returned to the hot seat, apparently more comfortable talking about his ‘legacy’ and his handling of the economy. But as Jolley asķed him about Low again, Najib threw in the towel. He later apologised for losing his cool during the interview.

Jolley was deported from Malaysia in 2015 under the Najib administration while she was working on a story Murder in Malaysia, which cast a spotlight on the brutal slaying of Mongolian Altantuya Sharriibuu.

Inside Msia, “his pple” will give him smooth flow as much as possible but in the international arena , “his pple” cannot function well there. So this is what can be expected of him.
