Should Najib Go On Leave?

Yesterday, I posted an entry titled Explosive Statutory Declarations on C4 Case .

Balasubramaniam, the private investigator of the man implicated in the murder, Abdul Razak Baginda (political secretary of Najib) made a statutory declaration that allegedly name our Deputy Prime Minister-cum-Minister of Defence Najib as related to the mentioned case.

Bala was in a press conference held by Parti Keadilan. Blogger Hard-T posted a detailed entry of the given question and answers between Bala, Anwar, their lawyer and the press. It was said there is a possibility of more exposure on the case in the near future.

YB Lim Kit Siang wrote Altantuya Murder - Najib should go on leave from his DPM duties until cleared of allegations in Balasubramaniam SD.

It has been almost two years since the case presided in the court. I agree with the suggestion that Najib should go on leave to clear his name before returning to his duties.

As you can see, this is a case of international scope, involving relationships between this nation with Mongolia and possibly China (some records of Altantuya's immigration is mysteriously missing).

Furthermore, the reputation of our own government is at stake. Judging by the performance of Barisan Nasional and UMNO in the previous general election (PRU12) which highlighted major problems of these parties in garnering support from the masses, Najib should wisely take a leave.

After all, I believe one should place the interests of the nation as the highest priority, followed by party and eventually self.
