THE MALAY MESSENGER

Kuala Lumpur – 30th April 2013

THE FORGER

Is this the beginning of the end for the Sarawak Report? It looks like it.

Although the Taib family seems strangely aloof from the tide of insults and allegations that have been thrown against it, [I suppose they can afford to be] it appears that the US justice system has finally got its hands on the key to much of what we have seen in Malaysia.

Who are we?

This article is written by an Activist. I used to believe that foreigners had a better perspective on the opportunities and the many disappointments of being a modern Malaysian. I have been involved with the work that many of us put in, for love of our country and of our state. I know that many people like me were prepared to be involved because we believed that what we were showing up, what we were exposing, was the truth. I am probably complicit. I thought we were working to find the truth, not paying world class crooks and forgers to make it up.

I didn’t become disillusioned straightaway. But I realised that I was constantly compromising my sense of justice in order to promote and eventually to twist a picture of Malaysia that suited other people’s political ambitions, foreign companies financial positions, and maybe even foreign countries interests.

What do I have that is different from all the insult trading blogs?

I have been close enough to the combined Soros/ Rewcastle/ Anwar campaigns to KNOW what I tell you, and I have access to confidential material posted below. and I remain in touch with the key players but don’t take my word for it: ask the players themselves and look at the answers you get.

The Breakthrough

We have all been amazed by the information and the documentation and the convincing data supplied by the anti-government activists. Yes, we know they hugely exaggerate the amount of deforestation of Sarawak, but they seemed so plausible. Now we know how they did it. Some of it was straight use for public records: some of it was to deliberate twisting of data… But the most significant is this:

Clare Rewcastle Brown, Sarawak Report, Radio Free Sarawak, have all been using a criminal fugitive hacker and forger, CULLEN JOHNSON as the basis of their “research”. This man fled Canada, in 2010, and has been available for hire from his refuge in the Turks and Caicos island in the Caribbean. His speciality is not just breaking into banks and stealing data, but forgery of financial documents to order. Don’t take my word for it, look him up on the net. Start with : http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/story/2013/04/12/cullen-johnson-elaine-white-extradited.html

But there is a lot more, from the most impeccable news sources. You see, Cullen made news: he just got himself arrested and brought back to the US in chains. Wanted for multiple counts of fraud, forgery of financial documents to order, and more.

Let me give you a flavour from that article of what made Cullen and his partner so attractive for our political activists:

““The Johnson-White modus operandi was very well-developed — a lot of work with lawyers, simply in the manufacture of false documents,” said the public affairs consultant. “They would launder up documents for any kind of fee. They got $250,000 out of my ex and her father.”

His lawsuit against the couple has not been heard in court. He is happy they are before the American justice system.

“In the U.S., they’ll do a minimum of five years,” he said. “Here they’d go to Beaver Creek [minimum-security institution], get a new set of golf clubs, join a hot yoga class and get the Order of Canada when they get out.

“If they co-operate in the U.S., it’s five [years behind bars], if they don’t, it’s 15 years.”

What these global news sources don’t know is that when Cullen was taken in chains to a secure penitentiary in Virginia, copies of his customer exchanges are are out there. So while he is sweating away trying to reduce the charges against him in the US and Canada for fraud and forgery, we can show you what he has been doing out here. I realise that releasing this data now will re-focus the US and Canadian authorities on Malaysia. Sorry guys. A happy few years ahead for all our politicians and activists who used and directed his services. I wonder whether he will save time and just tell it all the FBI?

There is a simple set of questions you should put to SARAWAK REPORT today, asking for a public response. It’s only fair: Please help them by directing them to this site for easy reference. But take a copy of it first, I think their activists will try to block me.

· What is your association with Cullen Johnson?

· You knew when you dealt with him that he was a fugitive from justice?

· Is it true that you conspired with CULLEN JOHNSON and others in criminal attempts to hack into bank accounts of the TAIB family?

· Is it not the case that your funding for this campaign came from George Soros, via suitable cut outs? [oh, and just to be clear, that means that you, Malaysiakini, Suaram and Global Witness all share a common financial directive I know the government press says this, but it IS true, isn’t it]?.

· The entire focus of your campaign has been the removal of the long-standing regimes in Sarawak and Sabah. What will emerge is the common factor is OIL, and the fact that new oil finds ONSHORE fall outside the existing Malaysia/ East Malaysia agreements. Your supporters need a new regime in place, and VERY SOON. That’s why “green” about forest exploitation campaigns have been around for decades, but never funded and directed like yours. Hence your increasing focus on Sabah, and now on oil and local oil tycoons in the runup to the elections.

· With your facilitation, Johnson hacked and then forged bank accounts that were submitted in divorce court evidence to portray al-Bekir [Taib] as fabulously wealthy. Do you deny this? Is this perjury, by the way, and conspiracy? Please ask your lawyer. Oh, and what about the defamation bills each time we useful idiots repeated and repeated on your global networks data we knew was false. That is going to be ugly…. I don’t know how rich the Taibs are, but I suspect they are very rich, and can afford a hungry lawyer… and if I get sued by that lot, I will sue you for knowingly passing me lies…

· Junior Taib’s [a Junior Termite?] ex-wife co-operated with all of this, including setting Johnson the task of hacking her own, schoolboy son’s bank account as a test. You were involved in advising and pressurising her? True or false.

· You co-ordinated Cullen Johnson, with JOHN RAJOO, an investigator in KL and Dr Rajie, who is not only Anwar Ibrahim/’s in-law [and you so love family connections, Clare, don’t you?] You all know that you were commissioning a serious set of criminal acts, both hacking and forgery.

OK: Dear reader, you have seen this, you have written a request for answers to Sarawak Report, and you are STILL wondering whether this is another cheap BN election scam, or something paid for by the Taibs? I don’t blame you. There is enough crap flying around this week…

Now read this below: It will convince most people: but it will terrify the conspirators. They will see themselves.. and you can ask them to confirm or deny….

They don’t know how much more will come out from the FBI and the Canada police. [Qwxtar is Cullen, sometimes known as Frank.]

28-01-2012,07:34:34 PM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | Did not yet get to communicate with John R yet, but sure we can proceed for now

28-01-2012,07:58:58 PM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | oh dear

28-01-2012,07:58:58 PM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | do you want to try and contact?

28-01-2012,08:00:00 PM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | you there?

03-02-2012,04:02:02 AM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | Hi Clare. Just spoke with John. He will be speaking with Mrs. Taib and her lawyer to resolve your ability to access the financial intelligence information we are and will be providing. John was careful to underscore once again how at risk communications are in his country and again asked to remind you to obtain a Hushmail address as it is one of the onlyl platforms that automatically encrypts email. Also, that you use Skype for all verbal and text/SMS messaging. He hopes to obtain some additional data that we need today so that we can – hopefully – obtain information in relation to her son’s account in the U.K. over the weekend. Anyway, that’s about it for now. I will update you as I can. John said that he will call you and advise whatever decision is made regarding release of information to you. BR, Frank

03-02-2012,03:09:09 PM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | Yes thank you for this. It looks as if I should pend for a few days while you get your side of things together. I can open hushmail, although think skype will be ok for now – he has added me.

03-02-2012,03:18:18 PM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | Roger. I still have heard nothing further to this point.Apparently there is another two day holiday in Malaysia this coming Monday and Tuesday which tend to intefere with the progress of things. John indicated that he would be working through the weekend and the holidays however so perhaps matters will still move forward.That country seems to have more holidays than Panama has Carnivales! BTW, regarding HM there is no cost to HM and no requirement to identify yourself when you register. Encrption is automatic between HM users.

07-02-2012,06:44:44 PM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | was not completely clear on your text yesterday. Are the sources concerned to go further on their researches or is it just a question of awaiting confirmation from Mrs T? I think the non-Malay deposits are by far the most effective in terms of putting wider pressure on the situation….

07-02-2012,06:54:54 PM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | They are concerned about Mrs. Taib’s safety as they have detected monitoring in relation to even her son’s account(s) in the U.K. Although they could proceed, they will not do so without obtaining the son’s address, account and institution information from Mrs. Taib. Having this specific information greatly reduces the number of enquires they must make and lessens the risk for both Mrs. Taib and their secondary and tertiary sources. This caution is not necessary for the vast majority of other cases. We are hopeful that John will be able to contact and obtain this information from Mrs. Taib once the latest Malaysian holiday is over later today. John does not feel she is being obstructive, just that the holiday has interfered with his ability to contact her.

10-02-2012,03:05:05 AM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | Caught up with your texts after two long days sorry. Are you trying to excise the sons accounts from the fathers? All at least one step removed from any involvement on my part of course and I dont pretend to know what you are really working on, but very happy to meet with Mrs T. I think on some levels I could help on a broader front and possibly reassure her and maybe, if necessary, put out some feelers here, if she has been suddenly and dangerously excluded from her former establishment. I cant promise to be able to help, but i could try and we would do well to talk things over. Perhaps all of us. And one thought was that maybe here in the uK would be the safest place – otherwise, can do the HK option. No problem for me, as i have to travel anyway.

10-02-2012,03:59:59 AM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | Hi Clare. We are trying to avoid triggering any trip wires as far as both the more senior and the more junior Taib (Mrs. Taib’s ex) are concerned. And yes, we are trying to identify Mrs. Taib’s son’s accounts in the U.K. without, equally, setting off any alarms or built in security notifications to either or both of the more senior and junior Taibs. Mrs. Taib does not appear to understand the negative implications or the risks of her failure to co-operate with respect to the provision of address, account number and institution information in her case which is wildly different from any other asset case we have ever encountered. Our sources recognize that both the senior and junior Taibs are very dangerous and our secondary and tertiary banking sources have grave concerns about their own personal safety worldwide. Anyway, yes a meeting would probably be a positive thing and having it in the U.K. would probably be the best decision. We will help in any way we can.

10-02-2012,05:10:10 PM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | FYI, we have been advised of the Postal Code in the U.K. for Mrs. Taib’s son. It is SN8 4HW in the area of Marlborough, Wiltshire.

10-02-2012,08:35:35 PM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | he probably goes to Malbrough School. 2nd rank, takes those sort of kids

10-02-2012,08:42:42 PM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | Thanks for the informaton. By the phrase, ‘those sort of kids’, do you mean the children of the wealthy?

11-02-2012,03:16:16 AM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | Yes, but not so clever.

11-02-2012,03:17:17 AM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | Quite clever, but not very clever…. and some stupid billionaires of course

11-02-2012,03:21:21 AM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | Do keep me posted on how you manage to progress these matters. I do think a meeting might be a good idea to make things start moving a bit. Better here, but able to do HK.

11-02-2012,03:07:07 PM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | Spoke with John Saturday morning his time yesterday. When he mentioned the name of the school to Mrs. Taib it was clear from her reaction that we had hit the sweet spot and she then told John that she was very keen to further investigate/open all 111 personal accounts that have so far been identified and to obtain as many hard-copies of Swift wires, drafts, bank statements and other account application file material as possible. I am to provide John/Mrs. T. with a comprehensive quote with respect to the account openings and other things although, as I said to John, it is better that we open all of the accounts to obtain particulars before we tackle the job of obtaining support documentation, something that is an expensive and time consuming task. During this account opening process we will likely find that several of the 111 identified accounts have been closed. (Clearinghouse records often contain dated entries that do not always reflect current reality.) Anyway, we expect to move forward with the investigation early next week once wire co-ordinates have been provided to John and funds received.

11-02-2012,05:29:29 PM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | Have you discussed with her about meeting with me? I got the impression that you had. If so, has she indicated HK or UK?

11-02-2012,05:40:40 PM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | I have not spoken with Mrs. T. personally for about 10 days. John mentioned to me that you had indicated a willingness to meet with Mrs. T and her lawyer in Singapore and he suggested that that location would not be wise, that Hong Kong or, better, the U.K. would be a more secure location. I believe, however, that she wants to meet with you, wherever,

11-02-2012,05:45:45 PM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | Roger. I will let John know and ask him to facilitate things with Mrs. T if you wish (unless you would rather do this yourself). Is there any time/week/day(s) that would work (best) for you?

13-02-2012,08:36:36 PM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | Hi Clare. Just spoke with John Ragoo. He will be meeting with Mrs. T’s lawyer tomorrow about noon his time and, inter alia, will be providing the lawyer – Dr. Rafie – with your contact particulars and he will be contacting you directly to see whether a meeting in Hong Kong at the end of the week is possible. He and Mrs. T. are anxious to meet with you. John advises that the lawyer is also involved in a matter involving Mr. Taib senior. I am not aware of the details of that case. I will keep you abreast of developments.

14-02-2012,12:23:23 AM | clarerewcastle>>qwxtar | Well – I am here. Free to move at the end of the week. There are a lot of things coming together at the moment. So have a strong feeling that open discussion with Mrs T is the key to going forward. In the end we have to trust each other.

14-02-2012,06:46:46 PM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | Hi Clare. Just spoke with John Ragoo. He has had discussions with the lawyers and all are suggesting a meeting with you in the U.K. on or about March 19th. Attending would be John, Dr. Rafie, another lawyer and Mrs. T. Apparently you have already met with Dr. Rafie’s son, also a lawyer, in relation to some past matter. Anyway, it looks like the end of this week will not work from what I’m hearing and that March 19th is the proposal.

14-02-2012,07:01:01 PM | qwxtar>>clarerewcastle | BTW, when I was provided your contact information, it was given to me in conjunction with the contact co-ordinates for Bruno Manser Fonds in Switzerland. Is that an orgainzation to which you are affilitated or through which you can alternatively be contacted? I checked the website for this organization and did not see any reference to you there.
