1MDB ~ Pendedahan Tuan Punya Good Star Limited..!

Kenapa PAC tak mahu memanggil Jho Low? Kenapa PDRM masih lagi belum meminta kerjasama Interpol untuk membawa balik Jho Low dan 4 orang lagi yang masih disifatkan sebagai orang 'hilang' atau 'melarikan diri'? Kenapa Shahrol masih belum di tangkap untuk disiasat hasil dari laporan PAC?

Kenapa? Mengapa? Siapa? Bila? 


The Simple Question That Exposes 1MDB - Who Owned Good Star Limited?

What to make of the fact that the ‘cari makan’ chairman of the Public Accounts Committee secretly removed just two sentences from their agreed report on 1MDB just before publication?

Two sentences from some 150 pages of the report, illegally altered. Why?

The stupid manoeuvre has backfired, of course, which is why every effort by 1MDB and their boss Najib to put this particular genie back in the bottle has failed since Sarawak Report unleashed the PetroSaudi papers back in February of last year.

Now everyone has focused on what small portion of that report was so crucial and dangerous that the powers behind this political place-man made him remove it?  And the answer is that it was the evidence that the company Good Star Limited belonged to a person unrelated to the joint venture between PetroSaudi and 1MDB.

This deadly confirmation, given by Bank Negara, proved to the PAC that the US$700 million, which went straight from 1MDB’s Deustche Bank account in KL to the Good Star Limited account at RBS Coutts in Zurich on 30th September 2009, was deliberately siphoned out of the joint venture, which had of course been the greedy intention all along.

Later in 2011 a second direct payment was picked up by Bank Negara of US$330 million, again direct from 1MDB to the same Good Star Account.  Thanks to the PetroSaudi papers we have a complete copy of the original bank transfer and all the emails surrounding the dramatic theft:

The central question is who owned this bank account?
No secret – Jho Low was the beneficial owner
This central simple issue to the whole 1MDB story was presented by Sarawak Report on day one of our coverage of this scandal.  The PetroSaudi papers made clear way back on February 28th 2015 that Jho Low owned this company and we made that point in our very first expose.

For the entire ensuing period the fugitive Low, 1MDB and all the deniers of wrong-doing have avoided addressing this simple point, as to whom did the money go?

In order to find an excuse to get the money out of 1MDB the managers of the fund (led by CEO Shahrol Halmi, who was working to the orders of Najib and Jho Low) together with their willing co-conspirators at PetroSaudi, fabricated a false loan that was supposedly owed by the PetroSaudi subsidiary called 1MDB PetroSaudi (BVI), which entered the joint venture to its parent company PetroSaudi International Holdings Cayman Limited (Caymans) – this Cayman company was itself a subsidiary of the main company PetroSaudi International.

The idea was that 1MDB would agree to repay this ‘loan’ back at the outset of the joint venture. PetroSaudi’s London lawyers came up with a nice diagram to explain the plan as late as 21st September, just days before the money was paid out.

The plan was drawn up on 21st September, just days before the whole heist was executed behind the back of 1MDB Board members

As PAC members noted in their report on all this shenanigans, the loan was nonsense.
oth the company which supposedly issued the loan, PetroSaudi International Holdings Cayman Limited (Caymans) and the subsidiary company with supposedly received it 1MDB PetroSaudi Limited (BVI), were created on the self same day of September 18th 2009.

The loan was then hastily issued by PetroSaudi’s lawyers between their brand new holding company and brand new subsidiary on 25th September less than a week before it was due to be ‘paid back’. There is no evidence that any money actually transferred… in fact, the paper companies of PetroSaudi Director Mr Obaid had no such assets with which to issue such a ‘loan’.

Loan issued by Tarek Obaid to himself three days before he demanded 1MDB paid it back

By 29th of September, the day after the joint venture was signed Tarek Obaid and PetroSaudi were issuing letters to 1MDB demanding the repayment of this ‘loan’ to be made to a mysterious bank account number at RBS Coutts, which cited no details of the name on the account.

However, a mass of email evidence at the time makes clear that everyone from Jho Low to Shahrol Halmi was aware that the account belonged to a Seychelles based company called Good Star Limited.  Anxious emails flashed between Zurich and KL as the bankers at Coutts strived to learn who was the beneficial owner of this account for which they were receiving such an enormous sum of money.

1MDB CEO, Shahrol Halmi, told them it was Good Star Limited of the Seychelles.
Four days after the fictitious loan was issued Tarek was demanding it back from 1MDB

The name of the company was not sufficient the Zurich bankers said in these interchange between 29th September and 2nd October, who personally owned it?  These emails were sent on to Jho Low via the PetroSaudi email server by the company’s directors Patrick Mahony and Tarek Obaid.  Low told them not to worry as the matter would “soon be cleared” – leaving Low’s contact at Coutts Singapore, his bank manager HansPeter Brunner, in the clear firing line for questions over how this unusual deal was finally pushed through the Zurich account.  Brunner has recently resigned his job and Low’s local relationship manager Yak Yew Chee is being investigated by the Singapore authorities:

“Should be cleared soon” Jho Low told the PetroSaudi directors – see the email trail below

And, as the record shows, the matter was soon cleared and the money paid on October 2nd.  At this point hasty emails were sent around PetroSaudi in London urging the directors to organise to send a letter to 1MDB to confirm receipt of the money and close down the matter:

A letter was drafted and then sent, confirming that the US$700 had been paid:

But was it Mr Obaid who received the money?

With these formalities fulfilled Shahrol Halmi was in a position to tell a furious 1MDB Board that he had paid the loan as part of the joint venture agreement with PetroSaudi, when they met a day or so later.

As Malaysians now well know this was in total defiance of the instructions he received from the Board just days earlier, which was to wait on any payment or joint venture until proper due diligence checks had been made.

However, as Halmi told the PAC, he had ignored the Board, because it was overruled under the provisions of Section 117 of the articles of the company, which gives the final say in all matters to the Minister of Finance, Najib Razak.

The justification dreamed up for this flash loan and repayment, supposedly to the PetroSaudi parent company, was that PetroSaudi had injected extremely valuable assets of US$2.9 billion into the joint venture in the form of its ‘ownership’ of Argentinian oil wells and a major oil field in Turkmenistan in the Caspian Sea. The cash, it was apparently argued, would make up for the immense value of these assets provided to the joint venture.

However, Sarawak Report has long since exposed these supposed assets to have been a sham and the valuation by the top US banker Ed Morse to have been a rushed, made to order job, based solely on PetroSaudi’s own data provided to Morse.  Morse got US$100,000 for his day of rejigging PetroSaudi’s own presentation and made sure to add a disclaimer that the figures and ownerships all needed to be independently verified.

Sarawak Report has also long since reported the 1MDB Board’s concern and fury about this slap-dash valuation and their demand that it should be independently supported before any deal was signed.  Shahrol Halmi disobeyed on the basis of Section 117, as the PAC report has now also confirmed.

So, what of those assets that supposedly under-pinned the ‘loan’?  Email trails the very day after the joint venture deal was signed and the money received shows that PetroSaudi moved swiftly, indeed immediately, to close down a so-called ‘Farm in Agreement’ with a company called Buried Hill, which actually owned the oil field in Turkmenistan.

PetroSaudi had merely been in the process of negotiating a possible option to take part in their venture and did not own the asset at all. By the time of the deal PetroSaudi had just five working days to pull out of that option, explained its financiers at Ashmore Group, or it would indeed have had to have bought into the venture.  PetroSaudi pulled out!

Does this explain the unseemly hurry to get this deal done by the end of September 2009?

So, there was no Turkmenistan asset injected into 1MDB!

Likewise, the Argentinian ‘asset’ was also largely funded by a loan from Ashmore, which was where Director Patrick Mahony was officially still working while he fixed up the PetroSaudi deal with 1MDB.
It means that PetroSaudi injected zero assets in return for their US$700 million ‘loan’, which was repaid in cash by 1MDB.

Clear conspiracy

It is for the above many reasons that PetroSaudi is proven to have played the part of willing conspirators with Jho Low in the removal of the US$700 million from 1MDB.

PetroSaudi lied about its assets and provided a false valuation and then immediately terminated the ‘farm in’ arrangement, which provided a facade of involvement in the Turkmenistan oil field (which is in fact in a disputed area and yet to achieve legal status for drilling).

It is plain, as pointed out by the PAC report, that PetroSaudi also conspired to provide a front for the receipt of the US$700 million loan, when in fact it went to a person outside of the joint venture, namely Jho Low.

PetroSaudi and their lawyers cooperated in the fabrication of the loan arrangement and repayment and then provided formal notification of their receipt of the money, when in fact Good Star Limited belonged to Jho Low.

In return, Tarek Obaid was paid US$85 million by Jho Low from Good Star Limited itself on the very day of the receipt of the US$700 million.  Shortly after he sent US$33 million of that on to his colleague Patrick Mahony.

The formal letter which accompanied that payment to Obaid from Good Star Limited detailed the payment as being with respect the Saudi businessman’s “broker fees in respect of raising funds from the Middle East to invest in Malaysia” (a claim that could not have been further from the truth)

Pay out number 1 from Jho Low's Good Star itself

Also on 30th September Jho Low arranged another US$20 million payment to Tarek through another of his Singapore companies Acme Time, which was arranged by one of his key fixers Eric Tan.
Total of over US$100 million dollars to Tarek on the day the deal went through
Total of over US$100 million dollars to Tarek on the day the deal went through
On top of these inducements the shareholders of PetroSaudi also received a vast cash injection into their company of US$300 million, enabling it to develop into a serious player in the oil business for the first time. 

PetroSaudi rapidly became involved in a lucrative venture in Venezuela thanks to its ability to now invest in oil fields in the region.

Sarawak Report believes that this criminal series of inducements (which were not authorised by the board) were what persuaded PetroSaudi to fulfil its agreed role to “act as a front” for Jho Low.

Hence the crucial question over the real ownership of Good Star Limited.
If all the allegations against 1MDB had been false then these could have been disproved on day one by those concerned with the simple production of the official documents of Good Star Limited from the Seychelles company registry.  Likewise, the documents from Coutts showing the beneficial ownership of the Good Star Limited account at the times concerned.

If the owners had been PetroSaudi, as alleged, then the entire allegation could have been simply swept away.  A year later that has not happened.  PetroSaudi has hidden behind lawyers and refused to answer the simple question over the ownership.

The PAC report complains also that persistent questioning of 1MDB failed to produce any documents or proof as to the ownership of Good Star Limited. The company merely offered to provide a ‘letter of assurance’ from PetroSaudi itself written in 2015, which the PAC dismissed as laughable in terms of evidence.

In fact, as long ago as our original February 28th article, Sarawak Report had established that the signatory and Chief Investment Officer for Good Star Limited in its documents dealing with both Tarek Obaid and Patrick Mahony was Jho Low’s deputy Seet Li Lin
Seet was the signatory on an agreement with Mahony also dated 29th September 2009
Seet was the signatory on an agreement with Mahony also dated 29th September 2009
When Sarawak Report rang the above telephone number it was answered by Seet Li Lin.

Later information obtained by Sarawak Report from the Seychelles company directory has confirmed that Jho Low was indeed the sole beneficial shareholder of the now liquidated company.

And this was confirmed to the PAC, according to its original report, by none other than Bank Negara when questioned.  The bank officials told the MPs that Good Star Limited had been confirmed as belonging to a party who had nothing to do with the PetroSaudi 1MDB joint venture i.e. neither PetroSaudi nor 1MDB.
“Datuk Hasan Arifin tried to defend his unilateral decision [to chop out two sentences of the report] by claiming that the statement “is unclear or being investigated”, hence “is something prejudicial”.
The PAC Chairman should inform the Parliament and all concerned, what exactly is so unclear about Bank Negara’s findings that “the ultimate beneficiary of Good Star Limited is an individual unrelated to the Petrosaudi International Ltd”? [Tony Pua, PAC committee member]
It was this highly damaging key central issue that Najib clearly needed to be removed from the report and he therefore directed his personally appointed new Chairman of the Committee to break the rules and take out those two crucial lines relating to the admission by Bank Negara that Good Star Limited did not belong to PetroSaudi.

It means the money was indeed stolen by the agent of Najib, Jho Low…. unless, after a year of ducking and diving, PetroSaudi and 1MDB are able to provide genuine documentation that show otherwise?

Ingat sikit lebih2 lagi kalau ko ada anak perempuan.....ataupun kalau belum mungkin akan datang ko ada anak perempuan.

      Nak marah jangan sampai melibatkan mak bapak org. Kalau ko org Islam ko tentu tahu dosa menghina mak bapak org. Nak marah, marahkan tuan punya badan je. Aku tak setuju marah sampai melibatkan mak bapak org sebab aku pun ada mak bapak jugak.
