OPPOSITION LEADERS WARN BRITISH PM AHEAD OF MEETING WITH MALAYSIAN PM?


KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Opposition leaders have criticized the timing of British Prime Minister David Cameron's visit to Malaysia next week, saying it could send a signal that Downing Street was indifferent to allegations surrounding Datuk Seri Najib Razak in the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal.
Britain's Financial Times (FT) quoted PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar as saying that Cameron’s visit could show the UK government was not concerned about “the current scandal-ridden ground on which Najib treads”, while DAP's Tony Pua warned that any support to Najib would taint Britain's image "as a country which supports democratic principles and good governance”.
  • But a British official appeared to defend the visit, saying Cameron believed in engaging with all leaders.
  • "He has said that the way to talk about issues is to have an engaging relationship and try and work with countries.
Malaysia is a longstanding partner of the UK and the relationship is important for our prosperity and security, FT quoted a source in Downing Street as saying.
The Najib government is currently battling allegations of mismanagement and corruption surrounding  his  brainchild, 1MDB, 
which has raked up debts up to RM42
billion.
