RPK graduated to a compulsive liar

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamaruddin (RPK) has graduated to a compulsive liar, said retired police commissioner Datuk Seri Amar Singh Ishar Singh in reaction to an allegation by the former.

“RPK, you have now graduated to be a compulsive liar.

“I am residing at my house in Klang, and have no wish to seek citizenship anywhere else. I love my country Malaysia and am very happy here.

“I have no reason to seek citizenship elsewhere, nor do I need to hide behind the skirts of political asylum in another country. Can’t say the same to you Mr RPK,” he said.

Raja Petra in an article entitled “The Pavillion Residences Nightmare for Tommy Thomas” claimed that Amar is ditching his citizenship in favor of Canada due to health.

“Amar Singh Ishar Singh blundered big-time and was asked to retire and is now seeking Canadian citizenship for ‘health reasons’” RPK wrote, claiming that Amar was forced to retire as he failed to perform his duties, while heading the investigations on 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

Amar had led the raids at the Pavilion Residences condominiums and house in Taman Duta owned by former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak that saw the seizure of hundreds of high-end handbags, cash in various currencies, gold, jewellery and luxury watches, linked to 1MDB last year.

He also became a social media star due to him becoming a regular face via press conferences by the police.

His investigation efforts earned him the “Singh is King” moniker from citizens, which is based on a movie starring Hindi film actor Akshay Kumar who co-incidentally holds a Canadian permanent resident status.

Amar also took the trouble to explain his terms of retirement.

“I was to retire on June 6, 2018 as I had attained the full pensionable age of 60 years old, but due to work commitments with the cases of interest, as you are well aware of, I was offered an extended contract of service for another six months till December 6, 2018.

“I retired on this day and am now a pensioner with no health issues whatsoever,” Amar said.
