The latest was that the special investigation team set-up by the Attorney-General to probe the allegations against Najib had yesterday frozen six bank accounts, three of which were believed to have the PM's name on them.
Then Wall Streets Journal (WSJ) later in the day produced the documents which it claimed supported its article that accuses Najib of receiving billions of ringgit from 1MDB-linked companies via his personal accounts.
Anti-Najib blogger Apanama was on the ball with updates of these developments
KENYATAAN MEDIA SIASATAN PASUKAN PETUGAS KHAS
Dana 1MDB - Najib Razak - Ini bukti yang dipinta?
The statement by the special investigating team was particularly interesting for me due to the inclusion of Bank Negara governor Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz as part of the team.
The others are Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Patail, Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed.
I checked the "evidence" of documents produced by WSJ with several people who are familiar with banking regulations and they said they looked genuine.
However, pro-Najib bloggers disputed this,
Dokumen WSJ palsu?
Doctored bank transaction, WSJ lies too much!
Another pro-Najib blogger LSS argued the same about the WSJ's "evidence" in his
Suspension of accounts and Najib's position
LSS also pointed out that the PM can only be removed by
1) Two-thirds of UMNO's Supreme Council calling for an EGM to remove the President.
2) Vote of no confidence in Parliament or impeachment.
3) DPM consulting YDP Agong together with Attorney-General to recommend suspending or sacking Najib.
All of which he said is unlikely to happen.
But, what if the special investigation team actually finds enough evidence to charge the PM in court?
Can Najib still be the PM if that happened?
Personally, I don't think he can remain in office if the AG, Bank Negara governor, IGP and MACC chief believe that he had broke the laws.
Bear in mind that those four are government officials and not politicians.
I think that's how the axe will fall on Najib.
Those who wanted him out knew that they can't do it via Umno, parliament or YDP Agong.
So, they are using the laws and government instruments to do it.
The government officials have no choice but to do their job once they were furnished with the necessary evidence.
That's why the anti-Najib forces seem so confident that they can remove Najib.
However, another pro-Najib writer Raja Petra (RPK) thinks it's not yet game over in his post
And the counter-coup is launched
I was a bit disappointed though as all it contains was a statement by Najib's legal team that they are probing the WSJ's article for possible legal action against the New York-based publication.
However, Raja Petra seemed confident that this will lead to the PM's victory over those who plotted against him.
Errr...I think RPK was being a bit over dramatic on that one.
I wish he had elaborated a bit more on how Najib is going to make the likes of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad grovel in the mud while begging for mercy.
Well, never mind. Everyone has his own style.
I will nonetheless wait for the tide to turn again in this battle which started about three months ago....if it does turn again lah.
