Interesting facts about Charles Morais, the brother of murdered DPP Charles Morais – and who is now alleging that his death may be related to Najib and Rosmah.
In 2007, Charles was proudly hailed as a successful Malaysian in New York in the local press.
Malaysian a major hotel player in the US
THE name Charles Morais may not yet ring a bell in Malaysia but the Kuala Lumpur-born entrepreneur is well on his way to becoming one of the leading hoteliers in the United States.” http://www.malaysiakini.com/
But by 2011, Charles Morais came crashing down and was featured in a WSJ article titled:
“A Hotel Empire Unravels – Kronos Owners Grapple With Bankruptcy, Criminal Charges; ” http://www.wsj.com/articles/

As recently as 1 1/2 years ago, PAS was a big supporter of the now-dead or comatose Pakatan Rakyat.
PAS had always lived up to their end of the bargain to “Pakat” with PKR and DAP and frequently mobilized their formidable million-strong machinery to support Pakatan events and rallies.
PAS may not be a genius when it comes to economic development policies but as a religious party, they are a party that do try to hold on to their principles.
So, how did this partnership suddenly fall apart so fast and why is PAS so bitter with DAP now?
There were three major events:
1) There was no Pakatan consensus decision on the Kajang Move. PAS did not agree and was not consulted.
As declared many times by PKR and DAP leaders, Pakatan operates on the basis of a consensus decision – meaning all 3 parties must agree before any major decision can be implemented.
It does not operate on the basis of majority decision or 2 out of 3. All three must agree.
PAS had objected strongly to this as the Kajang move but it was still implemented was without PAS’s agreement – something that would have broken the consensus agreement of Pakatan.
In fact, it seems to have been an unilateral move by PKR itself – apparently as part of a strategy by the then PKR Strategic Director Rafizi Ramli.
Even DAP’s Secretary General Lim Guan Eng was caught unaware. Unless Lim Guan Eng was lying at that time when the Kajang ADUN resigned to allow Anwar to contest then there is no way that the Kajang move was a consensus decision.
DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng has denied knowing what is going on in Selangor following the resignation of Kajang assemblyman Lee Chin Cheh yesterday.
He said he was not informed of anything by PKR de facto leader and opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who is now going to contest the Kajang by-election.
Lim said the resignation was also news to him.
“I was not told about the developments in Selangor about the resignation or the Menteri Besar’s post.
“It is best for Anwar to answer. It is not right for me to talk or give views. My feelings on this matter are not important,” – Jan 28 2014.
Ever the opportunist, DAP later went along with PKR’s and Rafizi’s plan – but PAS had steadfastly refused to play along too since the principle of a consensus decision was broken.

As 1MDB enters its final stages of rationalization where all its debt will be cleared and as the PAC hearings resume, I thought I will just refresh all of us with these facts.
Verifiable hard facts that you should know about 1MDB – part 1
PetroSaudi International is founded and owned by Prince Turki bin Abdullah Al Saud – the 7th son of the then King of Saudi Arabia.
Here is proof of ownership as confirmed by Sarawak Report itself.
He is not a so-called “minor” prince among dozens – as alleged by Sarawak Report. By all accounts, he was a favoured son of the King and was made Deputy Governor and eventually, the Governor of the Riyadh province – the second largest province in terms of both area and population. Its capital is the city of Riyadh, which is also the capital of Saudi Arabia.
Not only did the King make Prince Turki the Governor of the capital city but he was also made a Cabinet minister of the Saudi Arabia government. Continue reading
Tony Pua maybe the Selangor DAP chief but he did not secure the most number of votes. Without a direct form of voting, the DAP election has continued to be a sham despite their calls for accountability.
And despite their talk of multi-racialism – voting was clearly on racial lines as none of the Malay candidates were voted in. They had to be co-opted into the state committee. It’s a total disgrace!
