  • Malaysian PM's critics unbowed despite anti-graft agency support

    A senior member of Najib's party also broke ranks over the scandal, suggesting that the prime minister's moves to oust dissenters from positions of power and effectively delay an investigation into the fund had failed to put his government out of danger. On Monday, the Anti-Corruption Commission acknowledged that 2.6 billion ringgit ($675.15 million) was transferred into Najib's private accounts but said the money was a donation, not from 1Malaysia Development Berhad. "Malaysians and the world are watching the country being seized by a madness where the government is warring against itself," said Lim Kit Siang, parliamentary leader from the opposition Democratic Action Party (DAP).

  • Are Katy Perry And John Mayer Back Together Again For The 234th Time?

    Forgive us if you think you’ve heard this one before, but Katy Perry and John Mayer are - you’ve guessed it - back ON. The pair were spotted on holiday in Yellowstone National Park, which isn’t your usual celeb holiday hotspot, and witnesses told The Sun that the on-off-on-off-we’velosttrack couple appeared “head-over-heels” in love. The couple - that’s Katy and John - have been together since 2008, but have broken up more times than we’ve had hot dinners (well, nearly, this is the fourth time they’ve split/reunited and we’ve had at least six hot dinners in that time).

  • Probe RM2.6b donation in PM’s account for money laundering, Bank Negara urged

    An anti-corruption group urged Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) today to launch an investigation into the RM2.6 billion contribution from donors in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s account, saying the purported donation could be a form of money laundering. The Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) director Cynthia Gabriel also said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) should divulge more information on the source of the funds, which the commission had earlier confirmed was from “donors” and not from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) as previously claimed. “The Anti-Money Laundering Act needs to be invoked immediately to examine if it was laundered money and illicit money that was transferred in the prime minister’s account.

  • Samsung glamour days over as it fights to save mobile market share

    By Se Young Lee SEOUL (Reuters) - For four years Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has basked in the success of its Galaxy smartphones, making billions of dollars competing with Apple Inc in the premium mobile market. The coming years are set to be more somber for the South Korean tech giant, as it is forced to slash prices and accept lower margins at its mobile division in order to see off competition from rivals including China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and Xiaomi Inc in the mid-to-low end of the market. Behind Samsung's reality-check is the fact it is stuck with the same Android operating system used by its low-cost competitors, who are producing increasingly-capable phones of their own.

  • Russia files UN claim over vast swathe of Arctic

    Russia pressed a claim at the United Nations Tuesday for an additional 1.2 million square kilometres (463,000 square miles) of Arctic shelf, an area of escalating international tension. In a submission to back a 2001 claim at the UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf, Russia said research showed it had rights over the swathe -- an area the size of South Africa. This would include the North Pole and potentially give Russia access to an estimated 4.9 billion tonnes of hydrocarbons, according to government estimates.
