The Pandora Papers expose was first released in October 2021.
But almost three years and three prime ministers later, we have yet to know who are the “presidents, prime ministers, billionaires and prominent business people” who have cheated the people of this struggling country.
Patriot registers its utmost concern while applauding the courageous prime minister who has to dig out the stinking, malignant rot.
What the past three prime ministers failed to do, Anwar Ibrahim is redressing.
Opening the lid is only the beginning. The people of Malaysia must demand speedy action and closure. We must show resolve and commit our resources quickly if we mean what we say.

When leaders in politics, government and business cheat on such a grand scale, a nation collapses economically and gets trapped in irreversible social rot.
When the people who preach heaven on earth admonish helpless, struggling people, religion is undermined.
When key institutions remain tight-lipped or are far too late in registering their concern, they end up as hypocrites with lost dignity.
Malaysia has been a land of great sloganeering. Hopefully our current PM will move us out of this hypocrisy by hunting down all those leaders of the past who betrayed the nation and the people.
Patriot believes Anwar needs the people’s unwavering support in this mission impossible given the decades of entrenched corruption.
We therefore invite all NGOs, leaders of all the various religious faiths, presidents and chairpersons of professional associations, and every concerned person to step forward, unite and march together with Anwar to reclaim our nation’s lost treasures.
Let us not be waylaid by any propaganda or public relations tactics employed by the multi-billionaire crooks who will go into high gear to disrupt any investigation on them.
Patriot calls upon all local media to do national service by being quick and persistent in exposing all the individuals named in the Pandora Papers.
Patriot believes this is our last chance to break the vicious web of deceit that has sunk the people into financial, economic and social misery today. – Patriot
