Sarawak should revoke honorifics awarded to Najib

Secara Rawak

The Sarawak GPS Government should advise the Governor to revoke the honorifics awarded by the Governor of Sarawak to Najib Tun Razak.

Najib Razak was awarded Sarawak’s second highest award, the Darjah Utama Yang Amat Mulia Bintang Kenyalang, which carries the title Datuk Patinggi.

With the confirmation of his conviction by the Federal Court, it is now beyond all doubt that Najib is a convict for having committed the crimes of abuse of power, breach of trust and money laundering. It was also mentioned in the judgment of the Court of Appeal that he is a “national embarrassment”.

Notwithstanding the claim by SUPP President that Najib was the best Prime Minister, both the Appeal Court and the Federal Court have unanimously confirmed his conviction found by the High Court Judge.

Therefore, to continue to allow him to carry the second highest award of the State will be desecrating the title of “Datuk Patinggi” honorific of Sarawak.

In fact, the head of states of Selangor and Penang have revoked revoked the honorifics awarded to him after the conformation of his conviction by the Federal Courts.

Before this, even way back in 2018, the head of state of Seremban has revoked the honorifics awarded to Najib and his wife Rosmah when the two were charged in Court.

I therefore call upon the Premier to advise the Governor of Sarawak to revoke Najib’s award.
