This Malaysia? The incompetent corrupt one that lied and obfuscated about MH370?YarS said:Malaysia is not satisfied with this stupid show.
"PUTRAJAYA, June 20 — Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today claimed that the recent findings on the culprit behind the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was a “politically-motivated” conclusion to solely blame Russia."

What Really Happened to Malaysia’s Missing Airplane
He's not exactly a trustworthy source and fits in well with your 'crooks and thieves':Despite reflexive denials by Malaysian officials, and outright obfuscation by the Malaysian air force, the truth about the airplane’s strange flight path quickly began to emerge
Mahathir’s Super Plan - Corruption in Malaysia
However, Mahathir never fulfilled such promises which resulted in depreciation of his public support. Mahathir still abuses his powers to direct wealth and influence to the hands of his family members by controlling the media, the judiciary, and most of the economy via government-linked companies (GLCs). Empirically, it seems Mahathir’s return signals future increase in corruption rather than the opposite. Hoping that the man who infected Malaysia with corruption will help cure it, is wishful thinking.
Corruption in Malaysia is so widespread it had become a part of the national identity. In 2017, Transparency International conducted surveys and polls to portray how intrinsic corruption is in Malaysia. 60% of Malaysians felt that corruption had worsened in recent years and perceived the government was doing poorly in fighting corruption. When accessing basic services such as public schools, public hospitals, ID or voter’s card issuing, utilities, police and event courts, 23% of Malaysians said they paid a bribe. Malaysian Bar president Datuk Abdul Fareed Abdul Gafoor said in a statement, “The rot of corruption must be stamped out. Acts of public corruption are a violation of public trust, and deprive citizens of State resources that should be used for public benefit instead of being pocketed for personal gain.” The top challenges Transparency International found in Malaysia were political and campaign financing, “revolving doors,” and access to information. Corruption is so common in Malaysia that Malaysians learn to live with it, paying bribes when needed, rather than abolishing it.
