NGOs based in Malaysia, Australia, Germany, Japan, Switzerland and the UK have the catch in the net and now leave it to the AG, MACC and PDRM to act:

……."the criminal nature of Taib and his family members' 'private' businesses can no longer be denied by anyone who is intellectually honest, desirous of seeing the truth and interested in the good of the Malaysian people and, in particular, the people of Sarawak".

"We would like to remind you that Malaysia, as a signatory to the UN Convention against corruption and the UN Convention against Transnational Organised Crime, has a strong international obligation to fight corruption and organised crime in an efficient, timely and expedient manner", they add in their letter.

Canadian Govt Aware of Malaysian Money-Laundering Allegation | Scoop - News - http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories...gation.htm

Friday, 16 September 2011, 2:26 pm Press Release: Bruno Manser Fonds

"Prime Minister Stephen Harper alerted over massive Taib family-linked property holdings in Ottawa – Canadian police commends the Bruno Manser Fund but refuses to confirm or deny a criminal investigation

(OTTAWA, CANADA) Only days after the German government announced a money-laundering investigation into Deutsche Bank over its close ties with the Malaysian Taib family, Sarawak potentate Abdul Taib Mahmud ("Taib") might be facing difficulties from yet another Western government.

A copy of the letter was sent to a number of cabinet ministers, Canada’s money-laundering authority, FINTRAC, and William Elliott, the Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

The Bruno Manser Fund can confirm that our letter aroused great interest amongst the Canadian government and was brought to the attention of several top politicians, including the Minister of Finance, James M. Flaherty, the person who is ultimately responsible for money-laundering issues.

Department of Justice: Money launderers will be "prosecuted and incarcerated"

"You may be interested to know that the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police)’s Integrated Market Enforcement Team is a group of highly acknowledged specialized investigators that are dedicated to ensuring that those who commit serious capital markets fraud offences will be discovered, investigated, prosecuted, and incarcerated in an effective and timely fashion", a top executive of Canada’s Department of Justice told the Bruno Manser Fund.

In 2006, Jamilah and Sean added the California-based Sakti International Corporation and the Washington-based Wallysons Inc, which owns the FBI building in Seattle, to their property empire.

Those companies had previously been administered by US national Ross Boyert who died last year under worrying circumstances.

Sakto director Jamilah Taib is also a major shareholder of Cahya Mata Sarawak (CMS), Sarawak’s largest private company, which has made corruption the core element of its business strategy.

Deutsche Bank’s close business ties with CMS may have contributed to the German government’s decision to investigate the bank’s ties with the Taib family from a money-laundering legislation compliance perspective.

Both Canada and Malaysia are signatories to the UN convention against corruption that obliges its parties to efficiently combat corruption of public officials and to enable the recovery of potentates' embezzled public funds."

So long as BN is in power, people like Taib will be untouchables.

Soon we will see Ling LS released freely for 'lack of evidence'. While DSAI will go to jail one more time. Deja vu!

Bring on the spirit of 308!

Did you hear the news that the Ottawa Gov't actually rents office spaces for 11 of its ministries from the Taib linked "Sucked" company?

You would think that the efficient RCMP would have got off their high horses and checked out their landlord first!

Wow! if the Canadian Gov't pulls out from being sucked by Jail-Me-Lah's company, this company will surely be making a big loss if not going into self-liquidation!

Not only the Canadian Gov't but the FBI also got sucked into renting one of their buildings. This is embarrassing for the No. 1 law enforcer FBI which has kept extremely quiet over the questionable "suicide" of former Taib employee Ross Boyert!

Another big sucker is the Australian Gov't which gave Taib linked Ta Ann company $10 million AUD to subsidize setting up its operation in Tasmania and you know what? Ta Ann has been declaring losses ever since. So who is laughing all the way to the bank?

No wonder they all want to investigate
Taib now!

Except the friend in Monaco who can't afford to investigate.

Yes indeed, they have woken up to the fact...

Monaco’s Prince Albert II asked to pay back dodgy Malaysian donation

Bruno Manser Fund, the Swiss rainforest advocacy group, is calling on Monaco ruler Prince Albert II to pay back a controversial 100,000 euro donation he received last year from Malaysia’s First Lady, Rosmah Mansor, for his environmental foundation, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.

Albert was given the cheque by Rosmah in August 2010 at an "Islamic Fashion Show" in Monaco, which was sponsored by the Sarawak government. During the ceremony, Rosmah was accompanied by Sarawak Chief Minister, Abdul Taib Mahmud ("Taib"), and her husband, the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.

"The origin of the 100,000 euros is very unclear, and the fund should thus not have been accepted by Prince Albert’s foundation", the Bruno Manser Fund stated on Thursday. "We suggest that Albert pays back the money to the Penan, Malaysia’s most marginalized people, in order to support their struggle to defend their rainforests against logging."

The Bruno Manser Fund suspects that the 100,000-euro cheque might have been funded by Taib, who maintains close ties with the Monaco ruler. Taib is the main culprit in the destructive logging of Sarawak’s tropical rainforests, one of the world’s most biodiversity-rich habitats.

"Albert’s relationship with Taib raises a lot of questions", the Bruno Manser Fund said. "Why is Albert, who is fond of his green image, associating himself with one of the world’s worst environmental criminals?"

In 2008, Albert visited Sarawak with one of Monaco’s top private bankers and London property tycoon Achilleas Kallakis. Last year, Kallakis, a former member of the Prince Albert II Foundation, was charged with £61m of fraud in one of the most serious property frauds in UK history.

The Bruno Manser Fund is afraid that Monaco’s banks might be administering significant Taib corruption assets.

Calmy-Rey in her letter also makes clear that under international money-laundering agreements the burden remains on the Malaysian Government to make a request to Switzerland to freeze potentially illegal assets. Otherwise, countries such as Switzerland might normally be constrained to wait until Taib has been ousted.

On the other hand the Swiss President specifically refers in her letter to the recent freezing of assets belonging to the potentates of Lybia, Egypt and Tunisia, which have been possible under existing provisions of Swiss legislation.
