ADAKAH SKANDAL 1MDB BAKAL TERBONGKAR DI ARAB SAUDI?



Pergolakan politik di Arab Saudi kini menyaksikan sekurang-kurangnya 11 putera diraja,  4 menteri dan 10 bekas menteri ditahan oleh pihak berkuasa negara itu.

Penahanan itu dipercayai untuk mengukuhkan kuasa Putera Mahkota, Mohammed bin Salman yang sedang dipersiapkan sebagai pengganti bapanya, Raja Salman yang sedang memerintah Arab Saudi.

Beberapa jam sebelum penahanan itu,  Raja Salman mengisytiharkan pembentukan sebuah jawatankuasa anti rasuah yang diketuai oleh anaknya, Putera Mahkota Mohammed bin Salman yang diberi kuasa untuk menyiasat, menahan, melarang perjalanan dan membekukan aset-aset sesiapa yang didakwa melakukan korupsi.

Kesemua mereka sedang ditahan itu akan disiadat  berkaitan rasuah, penggubahan wang haram, menggelapkan wang negara dan terdedah kepada kemungkinan kekayaan mereka dirampas

Selain Putera Al-Waleed bin Talal, pelabur terkenal  antarabangsa yang turut ditahan, putera diraja lain yang tangkap ialah Putera Turki bin Abdullah, bekas Gabenor Riyadh yang merupakan pengasas bersama syarikat PetroSaudi.

PetroSaudi adalah syarikat yang mempunyai kaitan dengan skandal 1MDB dan Putera Turki adalah kenalan kepada Jho Low.

Putera Turki bersama Jho Low diketahui pernah bersiar-siar menaiki kapal persiaran mewah, Tatoosh bersama Najib dan keluarganya pada 2009 dahulu di mana gambar percutian mereka telah tersebar dengan meluasnya.

Dalam skandal 1MDB yang menjadi sebutan dunia dan berdasarkan siasatan DOJ ada kaitan dengan kemasukan wang RM2,600 juta ke dalam akaun peribadi Najib, nama Putera Turki pernah dikaitkan dengan hal tersebut.

Sementara DOJ memperincikan wang RM2,600 juta itu berpunca daripada dana 1MDB yang diselewengkan, Najib sebaliknya mengatakan wang yang diterimanya adalah derma daripada kerabat diraja Arab Saudi dan Zahid Hamidi pula mengakui telah bertemu dengan pewaris keluarga diraja tersebut.

Peguam Negara, Apandi Ali ketika membersihkan nama Najib pula telah mendedahkan penderma sebenar dana RM2,600 juta itu ialah salah seorang putera kepada Almarhum Raja Abdullah yang mangkat pada Januari 2015 lalu.

Meskipun tidak didedahkan siapa orangnya, putera raja Arab Saudi yang mungkin boleh digunakan namanya sebagai penderma kepada Najib ialah Putera Turki berdasarkan syarikat PetroSaudi yang dimilikinya mempunyai hubungan dengan 1MDB.

Blog ini pada artikel 7 Februari 2016 turut menulis perkara yang sama di mana Putera Turki adalah paling mungkin bersamaan dengan maksud yang disebut oleh Apandi itu.

Tetapi kini Putera Turki sedang ditahan dan disiasat atas dakwaan rasuah di Arab Saudi.

Apakah penahanan Putera Turki akan melibatkan siasatan terhadap urusniaga PetroSaudi yang dimilikinya yang pernah menjalin perniagaan dengan 1MDB?

Berdasarkan siasatan DOJ, Putera Turki  pernah dijadikan perantaraan oleh Jho Low untuk sekurang-kurangnya melakukan dua kali kemasukan wang ke akaun Najib iaitu pada 23 Februari dan 13 Jun 2011.

Ia dilakukan sebaik syarikat Jho Low, Good Star  menerima AS$1.03 bilion daripada 1MDB.

Apakah kemelut di Arab Saudi ini merupakan satu lagi detik menakutkan buat Najib selepas saman sivil serta siasatan DOJ di Amerika dan perbicaraan kes saman Hadi Awang terhadap Sarawak Report di London? (ShahbudinHusin 06/11/2017)

 PART ! : PetroSaudi's Prince Turki Is Rounded Up On Corruption Charges In Saudi

5 November 2017 1 comments


For two years Malaysia’s PM Najib Razak has leaned on an implausible explanation for his pre-election bonanza of $681 million in his ba
nk account, which was that it was a kind ‘donation’ from Saudi Royals. These Royals were hinted to be a king and his son, whom current Deputy PM Zahid Hamidi claims also to have met and discussed the ‘donation’ matter with.

The US Department of Justice have, to the contrary, traced the money step by step back to a theft from Malaysia’s own 1MDB development fund, which was controlled by Najib.

Requests that the alleged Saudi royals should be named have always been met with a shrug by BN’s top brass – why should one delve into detail about such ‘untouchable’ people was the official line? On the other hand, off the record, Najib’s key media spinner, his British communications chief Paul Stadlen, has subtly directed journalists to a BBC article which named the late King Abdullah and his son Prince Turki, who is a former shareholder and director of PetroSaudi.

Prince Turki lines up with Jho Low and Najib’s family together with PetroSaudi co-director Tarek Obaid on the luxury yacht Tatoosh weeks before the venture was signed in 2009

PetroSaudi was the company embroiled in the first major theft from 1MDB, a matter originally exposed by Sarawak Report and now confirmed by the FBI/DOJ court filings on the world’s largest money laundering investigation.

Some $1.83 billion was stolen from 1MDB using a bogus joint venture with PetroSaudi during the period 2009-11. At the time this supposed Saudi oil company was effectively a shell, despite being presented to the Malaysian public as a major player in the oil business.

The money trails show that $77 million was paid to Prince Turki in the aftermath of that deal, although most of the cash went to Jho Low, who was Najib’s own proxy in the negotiations. Even larger kickbacks also went to Prince Turki’s active business partner, Tarek Obaid, who has faced investigations into the affair in several countries and is currently remaining in Switzerland.

Prince Turki extricated himself from PetroSaudi soon after the scandal broke and is no longer involved in the company. He has also taken action over being effectively named as “Saudi Prince” in the DOJ’s original court filings in 2016, which detailed how $24.5 million had been passed from Jho Low’s company Good Star in 2011 to a Saudi Prince and then $20 million of that was passed on to Najib:

Original court filing mentioning ‘Saudi Prince’ – our highlights

Turki’s lawyers have been pointing out that the most recent version of the FBI filings (July 2017) indicate a more complex transaction that may have distanced the prince through the joint ownership of a company that received the cash. The revised version of the court document refers to a Riyad company and Saudi Associates rather than a Saudi Prince:

According to J.P. Morgan Chase and RBS Coutts banking records, between February and June of 2011, approximately $24,500,000 of these funds was transferred to an account at Riyad Bank maintained in the name of two Saudi nationals who were associates of LOW and TAN (“SAUDI ASSOCIATE 1” AND “SAUDI ASSOCIATE 2”). From those funds, $20,000,000 was then transferred, within days, to an account belonging to MALAYSIAN OFFICIAL 1 [updated version of the DOJ court filing]


Prince Turki went on to become Governor of Riyad, thanks to his powerful connections as the seventh son of the former King Abdullah. However, he was sacked the day after his father died and now he features as number three on the list of princes rounded up overnight by the new powers that be in Saudi Arabia.
