"Naturally, (my husband) had no knowledge of the Sime Darby purchase at the time as this is a sale by the major shareholders and the Board was not told of the negotiations until later".
"I have also briefed YAB the Prime Minister who expressed his understanding." - Zarinah Anwar, Securities Commission chairman
NATURALLY, whether she is the chairman or chairwoman of the SC, Zarinah Anwar has to do the Prime Minister a little justice (since she has dragged the PM into her domestic problems by insinuating in her memo to SC staff that the PM "expressed his understanding") and step down.
The ambitious Government Transformation Program would NATURALLY be a failure if tainted personalities continue to hold vital positions in the government's engine room.
The GTP requires clean hands and those hands must be seen and perceived to be clean too since everything revolves around perception nowadays.
I'm sure Zarinah wouldn't want to give Najib's GTP a red mark ... a negative perception among the business community and more importantly among the investors whom we have been courting at great expense.
Being a learned person Zarinah should by now also realise what is NATURALLY good for her and her NATURALLY innocent husband Azizan.
If "good corporate governance is the key to the integrity of corporations, financial institutions and markets, and central to the health of our economy and its stability" as Zarinah herself puts it then it would only be NATURAL for those overseeing and ensuring good corporate governance to walk the talk.
You, Tan Sri Zarinah Anwar, have failed on all counts and many of the dubious deals starting from the infamous ECM LIBRA - Avenue Capital saga to the latest Sime Darby - E&O has raised BIG QUESTIONS on your professionalism and integrity.
It simply defies logic and common sense for you to imply that your NATURAL husband is NATURALLY innocent and doesn't know anything about those questionable deals as both of you should NATURALLY still be on the same bed.
Shouldn't you NATURALLY step down and save SC and the Government from further disrepute since the smelly stuff has hit the fan...HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE & HERE ?
The choice is still yours, NATURALLY!
