Najib promises "full force of the law" against latest "outrageous" allegations
Things are heating up again.
Apparently, the almost defeated rebels were given new stock of ammunition to continue the fight.
I was not so concerned about the Sarawak Report's
After all, the portal has serious credibility issue.
My worries were more about the article by The Wall Street Journal
Here is Apanama highlighting the WSJ article,
WALL STREET JOURNAL - 1MDB money in Najib's pocket?
WSJ is a highly reputable international newspaper specializing in business and economy.
Some people may believe the story is true just because of that.
I think people of PM DS Najib Razak should properly handle the situation.
They need to demand for WSJ to retract the article and apologize.
Nothing short of that will make this go away.
Meanwhile, those supportive of Najib had come to his defense but mostly concentrated their efforts on the attack by Sarawak Report.
These are from my blog rolls;

SR's sensational but humourous attempt for diversion
Anyway, I don't think the Umno rebels will really be the ones who benefit from this latest development.
I don't see any way they can hope for Najib to step down now that the Umno supreme council had endorsed his leadership by postponing the party election until after the next general election.
I think the rebels are keeping up the fight just for the sake of doing so.
They know that they can't win.
As far as I'm concerned, it's the opposition parties which will benefit from this latest round of "expose" on alleged corruption of Najib and the BN government.
They will definitely make the best out of it.
Here is DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng saying,
"I have never asked him to resign. We hope he can respond to the serious allegation.
Well, the way I see it, from now until the next general election, every attack directed at Najib and his administration will be a goal scored for the opposition parties.
Umno rebels, are you all willing to fight alongside the opposition parties to bring down Najib?
