Bank Negara Malaysia Governor Tan Sri Zeti Aziz hospitalized

11798232_1625212737697072_133289997_nIt has been reported that the Governor of the Central Bank of Malaysia Tan Sri Zeti Aziz has been warded at Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur.

According to medical employees of the hospital, Zeti Aziz was warded on Monday citing fatigue and high blood pressure.

This is contrary to the black ops campaign that reported that Zeti Aziz suffered a heart attack. Medical staff at the hospital confirm that there was no heart attack.

According to a Bank Negara spokesperson, Zeti was not present at the National bank since Monday morning.

The spokesperson went on to categorically deny that Zeti had suffered a heart attack however it was confirmed that Zeti was indeed hospitalized.

The Bank Negara denial makes it clear to observers that this is an issue of contention that they would like to keep under wraps.

It is understood that Zeti is suffering from severe high blood pressure and and fatigue brought on by stress and long hours.

Given the political circumstances surrounding this, we can only speculate that Governor Zeti is folding under the immense pressure that is being sent her way by Special branch investigators.

Given the ongoing investigation that is being led under section 124 of the penal code which carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison. For those who missed our previous story Zeti is amongst 12 others who are being investigated for crimes against a parliamentary democracy.

Separately, Zeti has come under increased pressure amidst allegations of corruption whereby a company controlled by her family members received lucrative water contracts from Government linked bodies.

The company Azair Sdn Bhd provides water technology solutions in Malaysia and research indicates that the company’s only clients consist of several Government bodies and Government linked companies such as the ministry of Education and the Ministry of defence.

Centered around this controversy is Governor Zeti’s husband Datuk Tawfiq Ayman who is listed as a director of Azair Sdn Bhd.

Datuk Tawfiq Ayman had previously come under investigation due to his involvement in the brokerage of CIMB Southern Bank whereby by nature of his relationship with the Governor he was able to broker a deal at 1.92 book value.

In Malaysia, all transactions involving the sale of bank shares requires approval from Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM). In the deal Datuk Tawfiq Ayman by virtue of his relationship with his wife Zeti was able to get insider information on the deal.

It was reported that Zeti was also able to hold and reject all competing offers for the shares effectively holding the deal hostage unless her husband who served as the broker was awarded more favorable terms.

As it stands this is a clear abuse of power. To use one’s office as means of forcing unfavorable terms onto banks is a blatant abuse of power. Bank Negara Governor Tan Sri Zeti Aziz should resign.

  2. What happened to Zeti? When I acted for KSM in the mid 90s to sue BN and the receiver appointed by BN to sack the receiver, she was deputy governor & she was decent & honourable. If what you said of Zeti is true, the greed that the position of governor of BN generates must have consumed her decency. It is sad because honour can’t be bought with money & she is old now. She can’t take anything along when she leaves this world. How sad.

  3. Why now only revealing this ? Why not address the main issue of 1MDB and corrupt money going into the PM’s private account and no action is being taken to suspend the PM ?

    Is the government protecting the PM and trying to kill all those investigating him ? Then this is a clear rogue nation mentality. How can Malaysians be proud of being a Malaysian when the hypocratic PM shames the whole nation in the eyes of the international community ?
