This Man Is......
...never mind, your choice of adjective.
His name is Kamal Ashnawi (in picture). He is from Perak and he claims to have Euro 5 TRILLION (gasp) (savings) which amounts to RM20 trillion.
Now -- just on that line...can you believe him? I mean DUUH.
He was interviewed by Mingguan Malaysia. He showed the reporters copies of bank statements from HSBC in London to back his claim of having the dough.
So, that would make him a "trillionaire".... far far richer than Forbes' richest people on earth. Man, he's richer than Malaysia.... He's like a very rich country.
Kamal said that he is the president and chief executive officer of Sierra Petroleum (M) Sdn Bhd.
In 2005, he claimed to have proposed an oil refinery project in Kedah but that did not fall through and, according to him, after that, some people spread tall tales about him.
That's why he decided to talk to the newspaper. Here's where he lost me..
"Saya terpanggil untuk tampil bagi menolak segala tuduhan buruk yang dilemparkan sebelum ini ekoran cadangan projek pada 2005 yang tidak berjaya dilaksanakan kerana dihalang oleh pihak-pihak tertentu."
Kamal said he is now offering to make mega investments in three projects in Perlis, Johor and Kelantan soon.
The business, he added, would be handed over to SAS Group, a group of former students of Sekolah Menengah Sains Alam Shah.
Kamal said he will be staying in Hong Kong in March with his family before going to Indonesia.
Now, get this : his wealth was derived from the royal heritage through the accounts of the Combined International Collateral Global Debt Facility in 1875.
Here's another one : he also claimed that he is a royal descendant from Java, Indonesia with the name Raden Mas Prabhu Gusti Agung Ki Asmoro Wijoyo and was expected to be crowned as King of Indonesia in the next few years.
Sounds so bizarre and far-fetched to me. You may laugh but there are enough people who believe in him...
I've been told by a friend in London that everyone who knew him say that he's a xxxxxx .....yep, just as I thought.
The Star has the story as well
