Last week's reported incident of UK police giving notice to Raja Petra to refrain from writing about Sarawak Report's Clare Rewcastle Brown will not deter him from writing more about her.
In a country that practises and respect free press that Dato Najib faced barriers to undertake defamation lawsuit against her, the action she had taken to make a police report is unbecoming of western journalist that subscribe to the mantra of free speech and freedom of the press.
She herself is no less a writer of facts intertwined with fiction.
Her action indicate a sense of desperation no less than Tun Dr Mahathir's attempt to politicise the RCI on forex loss as a political attack against him.

To pro-BN political pundits, the latest on DOJ is political ploy between the pro-Democrat attorneys and Mahathir.
Apparently, the sceptical responses and critics hurled at DOJ by BN politicians got their attention. DOJ responded through Malaysiakini. Why only Malaysiakini? Is it for real? Is it another proof of collaboration with foreign government to topple democratically elected Malaysian government?
If it is taken in good faith that the e--mail exist, there is still a shroud of doubt as to why DOJ website did not make public their response on their website (see here.) Only two on their search engine.
Malaysiakini chose to highlight in their headline, "DOJ: We're in the business of facts, not insinuations" and FMT report based on Malaysiakini report highlighted "DoJ says its court filings based on reasonable facts".
The last para in the second attempt for seizure and forfeiture against those that allegedly laundered money from 1MDB, as taken from Bigdog here, as below:
“A civil forfeiture complaint is merely an allegation that money or property was involved in or represents the proceeds of a crime. These allegations are not proven until a court awards judgment in favor of the U.S.”

Since lawyer Hanif Khatri and Dato Abdul Kadir Jasin answer to any arguments questioning the validity and admissibility of the latest DOJ submission is to challenge anyone to sue them, then it is suggested that both the accused and implicated Tun Dr Mahathir and Syed Saddiq should sue RPK.
In his posting, "Syed Saddiq knew the US-DoJ attack was coming", Raja Petra claimed that Mahathir paid US$5 million to Clinton Foundation to get DOJ to submit the 'flimsy' charges to the US California Court last year.
He implicated Tun Daim and Syed Saddiq. It is claimed also Syed Saddiq told his friends that Mahathir spent RM50 million on the whole foreign attack exercise to topple Dato Najib.
In the earlier posting, "Mahathir is playing his last card in a futile attempt to oust Najib", he merely said millions were spent on the July 20th 2016 announcement and more for the June 15th 2017 announcement.

Kring kring ...An unknown number called into our handphone after Terawih last week.
Usually we would not pick it up and rather wait them text something. If they is an urgency, there will be a text message to ask to return call or whatever the brief intention of the call.
This time we accepted the call.
"Hello ah ... are you ....?"It was a deep grouchy Chinaman voice speaking English with a common folk Chinese accent.
"Can you introduce yourself. It is only the proper phone ettiquate."
"Oh sorry ... I am XXX (name to be witheld). Saya dapat nombor awak dari ini Dato YYY. Are you itu blogger apa itu nama A Voice ...?
