I agree when
“What saddens me is that undue pressure is being brought to bear on the Yang di-Pertuan Agong not to exercise pardon (in Najib’s favour). This is a show of insolence.
Well, they have been at it even before Najib filed the application for the royal pardon, which was his right to do so.
They need to keep Najib in jail as that's the only way they could justify their accusations against BN which won them GE14.
Even a pro-Pakatan friend of mine yesterday went all out to insist for Najib to accept his fate and rot in jail.
He basically laid down three reasons why Najib should just give up.
1. The Agong had on Sept 6 said Islamic justice does not at all give any privilege or exceptions to anyone who commits wrongdoing and this was supported by the Sultan of Selangor when he said on Sept 12 that the prerogative to pardon cannot be meted out arbitrarily for the sake of vested interest.
2. Sultan of Selangor has revoked the titles of Najib and his wife Rosmah.
3. Najib's attempts to free himself from jail will widen the rift between "Umno Cabinet" and "Umno party" and further disrupting preparations by Umno and BN for GE15.
