Following Malaysia's overwhelming election results, one of the country's most respected business executives admitted to "evading" pressure from the previous government.
These developments led to violent backlashes from Malaysian airlines netizens. . Public anger over Najib's alleged involvement in a multi-billion dollar graft case with state funds was a major reason that underscored the 64-year-old's election upheaval, which had denied any wrongdoing in the so-called 1MDB scandal.
Fernandes said on Sunday that he had made "stupid" the video of May 6, which he described as "fairly neutral and factual" in order to "appease" Najib's government.
Fernandes also said the former government urged him to remove Chairman Rafidah Aziz from the AirAsia X long-distance carrier and cancel 120 additional flights created specifically for Malaysians to return home to vote.
