It’s a slow news period, sue me.
Former prime minister Najib Razak has accused Dr Mahathir Mohamad of being hypocritical following the latter’s disagreement on bailing out Sapura Energy Bhd (SEB).
Yesterday, Mahathir was reported as saying that steps should be taken to trim losses incurred by the oil and gas services company, and that bailing out “failed people” was “not business”.
Taking to Facebook, Najib reminded Mahathir that when he was the prime minister under Pakatan Harapan, Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB), headed by then chairman Zeti Akhtar Aziz, had also “bailed out” SEB.
