Najib Abdul Razak claimed that the allegation of him ordering the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu would allow the authorities to detain him without bail.
According to him, his 1MDB and SRC International trials have not had the desired impact and Pakatan Harapan’s “propaganda” is also lagging far behind.
“Harapan is finding it difficult to counter or rebut what I write on social media with facts and proof as well as my speeches at ceramah.
“There are analysts who are of the opinion that the facts I produced were amongst the ‘sharpest weapons’ which contributed to Harapan’s crushing defeat in the Tanjung Piai by-election,” he added in a Facebook posting this afternoon.
Najib claimed that Harapan is suffering from a “one-term government phobia” and therefore is forced to churn out a new “conspiracy” to slander him.
“I was also told that the new story from Harapan (regarding Altantuya’s murder) would open the way for the government to detain and imprison me without bail because there is no bail for murder cases.
“Only through this can Harapan silence me,” he added.
