Hi, everyone. I hope you all are ok.
Actually I saw this particular article at the Channel News Asia's website and can't resist writing something about it. Just a simple short one ya.
Actually it's true.
That dastardly Sarawak crook Taib Mahmud is now the main shareholder of Singapore's Channel News Asia. He bought the whole Singapore media organisation using illegal logging money....so I was told by my "sources" in LONDON.
Taib's main purposes for acquiring the Singapore media organization was actually to enable him to suppress the latest attempt at implicating him with corrupt practices. You may read the details here -
The first thing Taib did after acquiring Channel News Asia was to force it to run this story -
The video, published by the NGO Global Witness, alleges that Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud and his family are involved in corruption.
In particular, the video featured a lawyer claiming that the Singapore government has a "firewall" and does not share financial information with the Malaysian government.
In response to queries from Channel NewsAsia, the Finance Ministry and MAS said: "The allegation is simply false. Contrary to what was claimed in the video, Singapore has to date provided fully the information requested by Malaysia for tax purposes."
The authorities said the two countries have had a good working relationship on tax matters.
Singapore has also designated a wide range of crimes as money laundering predicate offences including corruption, bribery and fraud. This is in line with the recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
The statement said: "Singapore therefore has been and remains able to provide mutual legal assistance to the fullest extent permitted under our laws where there are requests from Malaysia."
