- clarification was vital to protect the integrity of his office.

My comments : I want to address this to our Press.
Go and ask these questions lah.
Dont ask the PM alone. Ask his 'special advisors', his officers, ask Ahmad Maslan, Hassan Malek, ask his wife for their views. How come no one has spoken to the wife? Or Ahmad Maslan? Ask everyone.
Most important of all ask the PM.
"Can you confirm that you DO NOT own any of those personal accounts stated by Wall Street Journal?"
These snakes are now in a fix and are quite slippery. Be careful how you phrase the question.
Keep hounding him until he answers.
He will not answer. Kucing sudah makan ikan maa. Macam mana mau jawab.
Then call Zeti (who is becoming such a disappointment) why Bank Negara cannot give clearance to confirm or deny the existence of those bank accounts?
This is a matter of national security, which challenges the integrity of not just Bank Negara but of our entire banking system.
We are party to any number of international banking conventions, money laundering conventions etc.
I have a question for Zeti. That money came from overseas. The money was borrowed. Issue of bonds etc. Goldman Sachs was the advisor / arranger of the debt.
That means US laws are involved.
Any borrowing must have a stated purpose.
Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz who has never worked a single day in a real bank, please note that 'Purpose of the loan' was the third or fourth line in all our credit proposals.
Siphoning US$700 million (if it occurred) is in serious breach of any 'Purpose of the loan'.
And since this debt was issued in the US it is subject to US laws.
If US laws are breached, the Americans will make a fuss over this.
There is already enough egg on Bank Negara's face over this now.
Dont let them throw the frying pan at you. Or you into it.
