Paul Stadlen, the former “PR guy” of Najib Razak recently becomes a hot topic after the court release an arrest warrant on him. He was charge with in absentia after failing to present as a witness for 1MDB investigation.
Focusing on the influencers of the topic of “Paul Stadlen”, Pakatan Harapan politicians did not politicize on the matter. It was reported that Najib Razak transferred RM15 million to Paul through UMNO lawyer Mohd Hafarizam Harun. It was speculated that the RM15 million is a chunk of 1MDB stolen money.
Despite being linked with 1MDB, Pakatan Harapan politicians restrain themselves from touching on the matter to attack Najib. Even Najib’s vocal critic, Lim Kit Siang keep mum on the RM15 million.
Despite not being attacked, Najib still defended himself, stating that the fund transfer is legitimate.
Nevertheless, the topic just started to trend on the media. Maybe it is just a matter of time until this issue become politicized since Semenyih by-election is around the corner. Plus, Najib is pretty active in campaigning at the location.
