Anwar Ibrahim Jet Setting Name Game

The Star reports the businessman connected to the jet, that Anwar Ibrahim borrowed and which ain't theirs, as Datuk Mohd Taufik Omar.

When pressed to reveal if he was the real owner, Mohd Taufik said: “Am I that rich? I am just trying to cari makan (earn a living).

Malaysiakini has Anwar saying the owner is someone he has known “for some time” and the jet was "used for travel from Kuala Lumpur to Labuan, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching and back to Kuala Lumpur…If possible, I would like to borrow it again"

So, it is not certain if that "someone", Anwar is referring to, is Datuk Mohd Taufik.

That said, someone who Datuk Mohd Taufik must definitely know is Datuk Andrew Leong Wye Keong.

Datuk Andrew Leong was a substantial shareholder in delisted Maxbiz Corporation Bhd when Datuk Mohd Taufik was appointed Chairman in late 2011.

The Star in this article had Datuk Andrew Leong as the Hong Leong Group deputy chairman.

Is Datuk Andrew Leong that "someone"?

Surely it cannot be, Anwar would not borrow anything from someone who had testified against him in Sodomy I, even though Datuk Andrew Leong has known Anwar "for some time" since the eighties.
