Netizens shoot down Khairy’s talk of amnesty for Najib and other politicians

FORMER Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin has once again made some waves on social media after he brought up suggestions he said were made by some for granting an amnesty to jailed former prime minister (PM) Datuk Seri Najib Razak. This will mean the unconditional release of the former 1MDB chair, thus absolving him of all the crimes linked to his tenure as PM.Khairy, speaking on the show, Keluar Sekejap suggested on behalf of others that this was supposed to help PM Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in his current dilemma of facing a resurgent Perikatan Nasional (PN) opposition.In the Twitter account of @keluarsekejap it wrote:

(The fervour of Bossku’s supporters paints a picture of the group’s desire for change at the highest leadership levels of UMNO, in their efforts to advocate for the release of DS @NajibRazak.)

However, Twitter user @FreeMsian stated:

The question that follows is pertinent: If an average Malaysian were to commit a crime, they could be sentenced and jailed. If this proposal were to be taken seriously, would it be applied to the common thief as well?Other Twitter users are stating that we already have an amnesty like what Khairy suggested. – Aug 20, 2023
