@WIRED ran a long story on the misinformation campaign (fake news campaign) run by a BN cybertrooper in Malaysia.

It's a long read, and highly reccomended.…
BN first indulged into cybercampaigns of fake news after the 2008 elections.
BN fake news campaign started in 2008.
BN relies on racial sentiments and misinformation for its cybertroopers to play their cards.

Also, how infuriating is this? The Fake News Bill was drafted and signed into law by BN itself, while they have been using fake news cyber campaigns against Malaysians.

This is how BN cybertroopers works in spreading fake news and misinformation campaigns laced with slander, and racist elements.

All, done by the very government who preaches #1MALAYSIA and signed a Fake News Bill into law.

How on earth can we ever accept this and forgive them?
What happens when there are news breaking that are not in favor of BN?

This is what the BN cybertroopers did to shift the attention of the public online from the damning revelations, which are part of their disgusting tactics for damage control:
As usual, this is how the disgusting racial cards are played by BN cybertroopers, even up to #GE14, and post GE14.

UMNO’s targets has always been the Malays and DAP.
All, was done with the tacit blessings of Najib’s Prime Minister Office.

@WIRED contacted PMO for comments, but they didn’t receive any response. No surprises there.
Ladies and gentlemen, my fellow Malaysians, this entire revelation/whistleblowing happened because of the legendary Malay curse word: “PUKIMAK”

I am not kidding.

This is real life.

This is the real deal.

All of this, because of PUKIMAK, and @WIRED translated it perfectly:
This is why she defected and told everything to @WIRED in the interview with her.

BN sued her because she called Najib a PUKIMAK.

She have been charged, and is due to have a trial over the next few months
The Fake News Bill have always been problematic because of the vague and broad language of the bill.
After a string of massive scandals since the massive loss of votes and seats in 2008, BN got into “fragile ego” mode by implementing oppressive laws and by arresting Malaysians even for satire against the establishment.

#1MDB was the greatest catalyst for BN to go all out:
On #1MDB, a reminder that Najib’s BN even went to extra length in abuse of power to have @sarawak_report’s founder to be arrested by sending a request to Interpol.

Interpol, in their wisdom and refusal to be a puppet, rejected.

BN also blocked the access to @sarawak_report.
A reminder that Malaysia’s own pseudo-Cambridge Analytica-whistleblower-moment stems from a single Malay curse-word:

About damn time. @tunfaisal can disappear into the ashes of revolution now.

Awani reports the police at the Pavilion Residences right now are currently in the midst of accounting the money and jewelry items that belongs to Najib and his family.…
I guess we are no longer surprised.

So what we can do now, is to sit back, and enjoy the show.
PDRM truck just arrived at Pavilion Residences loading bay.

Looks like they are about to load items from the apartments:

On #1MDB, @Reuters reports that MACC found evidences that Najib received 1MDB funds in his personal account.

MACC wanted to investigate further, and their request was rejected by the AG.…
MACC found Najib received $10.6 million in 2015. Request to investigate further was rejected by the AG.
A reminder on how Najib consistently tried to deny any involvement and then he came up with confusing contradictory narratives to justify the transfer of the funds into his account:

Straits Times Singapore wrote a long article on the chaotic election night on how Najib lost his power.

It also highlights what Tun Mahathir did to ensure the results are known to all Malaysians, since EC refuses to validate results.

Highly reccomended.…
