  • Ambiga: Who donated RM2.6b to Najib?

    Prominent lawyer Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan urged Malaysia’s graftbusters today to reveal the source of the RM2.6 billion that they claimed had been deposited by “donors” into Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s personal bank accounts. According to Ambiga, if the donations had come from a foreign source, it would likely be in breach of several laws, including those covering money laundering. In my view, the statement by MACC still causes me concern as it means whoever donated such large sums is likely to expect benefit,” said the former Bar Council president, using the acronym for the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

  • Meet The ‘Real-Life Iron Man’

    Marvel’s self-styled “genius billionaire playboy philanthropist” is a work of pure fiction… isn’t he? When Stan Lee created the character of Tony Stark and his crime-fighting alter-ego Iron Man in 1963, the character was conceived as a straight-up capitalist – a ludicrous concoction of billionaire industry magnate, ladies man and adventurer.
