Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has become a big liar
The Q319 CJ (Corporate Executive Jet) is estimated to costs about US$50 million
When the whole matter blew up, the liar Malaysian Prime Minister said that "the jet is for use of the government, not the prime minister (only)". Elaborating, Abdullah said, "The aircraft belongs to Penerbangan Malaysia Berhad (PMB), it was (bought with) their money. We just leased it."
What's the difference between buying the jet directly and leasing it from a government-owned company? Who pays the bills for MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operation) ultimately?
Maybe someone should remind the sleepy premier that Khazanah Nasional owns Penerbangan Malaysia Berhad (PMB), and Khazanah Nasional is the investment arm of the Malaysian Government, and Abdullah Ahmad Badawi as the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance is also the chairman of Khazanah Nasional.
The executive jet was bought with "their" money? It is the taxpayers' money, and the mentally-challenged Prime Minister has become a big liar. Is he still a responsible man?
