Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamdi has confirmed the existence of an addendum order from the former Yang di-Pertuan Agong allowing Datuk Seri Najib Razak to serve the remainder of his sentence under house arrest.

The Umno president claimed the impugned document was shown to him by former Selangor Umno treasurer Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz at his house near Country Heights on Jan 30.

The Rural and Regional Development minister said this in his supporting affidavit dated April 9 in Najib’s judicial review application to compel the government to produce the impugned document.

He said Tengku Zafrul showed him a copy of the addendum order on his phone which he personally photographed or scanned from an original copy as shown to him by the former King, Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.

The Them and Us attitude of Najib and those who feel so sorry for him completely disqualifies this jailed prime minister from any further shred of popular respect or sympathy.

He went to an old fashioned boarding school, so surely he can hear the lessons ringing in his ears – “face the music”, “show some spine”, “you made your bed so lie in it” – and above all “lead by example”?

Let us not forget that the royal pardon he keeps attempting to upgrade was a confirmation of GUILT. This is a man who abused his position of unparalleled trust to steal millions (soon likely to be proven billions) from the Malaysian people.

Anyone else would have been jailed for life in the harshest circumstances and Najib would have shown the sternest attitude towards them on past record.  This is a country where jails are grim and sentences long for even minor misdemeanours, often performed out of desperation by those impoverished by the system of massive inequality resulting from the corrupt governance that Najib presided over.

Yet for his crime, performed out of vainglorious greed, he wants gentler punishment simply because of who his father was, who his friends are and how much he managed to enrich himself by.

Najib already has plush special accommodation segregated from the ‘hoy poloi’ suffering in the common jail.

He wears his own clothes, enjoys aircon, is chauffeured daily with outriders to his trials like it were a ministerial office job and he eats what he likes when he likes. He enjoys visits from friends and political allies.

Man! HE IS UNDER HOUSE ARREST ALREADY.  It is merely that it is not in his own house but the very nice residence previously set aside for the prison chief.

This endless whinging, whining and wheedling to get off his due punishment can only disgust the right minded people of his nation. If (to use further old fashioned phrases he will have learnt at school) he had “taken it on the chin” like a man and “tasted his own medicine” then people may have learned to respect him more.

Unfortunately, as everyone can see, all the many privileges throughout his life have turned him into a so-called spoilt brat who cares only about improving his own situation – to hell with everybody else he claimed to represent.
