World’s First Trillionaire?

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 22 — A Malaysian businessman who claims descent from Javanese royalty has alleged that he has some €5 trillion (RM20 trillion) in savings, which would make him the world’s first trillionaire and the world’s richest man by far.

Perak-born Kamal Ashnawi, who heads Sierra Petroleum Sdn Bhd, disclosed this at a press conference here yesterday where he showed reporters a copy of a bank statement from HSBC London,Utusan Malaysia reported today. Bruneian youths were surprised hearing about it saying that its “too good to be true”.

The Malaysian man said that the riches were inherited from the Combined International Collateral of the Global Debt Facility set up in 1875 by the world’s royal families, he claimed.

Forbes magazine lists Mexican telco tycoon Carlos Slim Helú as the world’s richest man, with an estimated net worth of US$63.3 billion in 2011.

Coming in a close second on the rich list is Microsoft founder Bill Gates, whose net worth is reported to be US$59 billion .

In comparison, Malaysia’s richest man, Ananda Krishnan, has a net worth of only US$9.6 billion .

Kamal had called the press conference to refute allegations following the failure of a crude oil processing plant in Kuala Kedah he had proposed in 2005, the Malay-language daily reported.

“This is my last offer to help Malays and companies by investing in three projects in Perlis, Johor and Kelantan in the near future,” he was quoted as saying.

The projects comprise a commercial tourism centre in Kuala Perlis, a Pirates of the Caribbean theme park in Danga Bay, Johor Bahru and a commerical project in Kelantan.

They will be spearheaded by SAS Group, a group of alumni from Sekolah Alam Shah, where Kamal had gone to school.

Since the failure of the proposed Kuala Kedah plant, Kamal has spent much of his time overseas. He said yesterday he intends to reside in Hong Kong for a few years starting in March before moving to Indonesia.

If he is the richest man in the world then why did forbes choose to turn a blind eye on him? Or perhaps who knows that the richest people in the world are worth more than him only to keep themselves hidden from the public eye. Is this some sort of conspiracy?

  2. i wonder why there’s no statement from the Federal Government or even HSBC unless everything he said was true….dont you think so….even the Otai like Tun Mahathir is also quite ,….First of all, he was interviewed by BERNAMA, a gov linked news agency.Even Tan Sri Zeti also doesnt make any banking statements….are they afraid of something…?Kamal is not an ordinary person, besides he is educated and has a vast working experience in Europe and USA….He used to lead an oil and gas company belongs to his late father in law-a dutchman(also a special advisor to the WALL STREET) as a CEO with about 3000 Americans under him.Finally he came back to Malaysia to launch a Sierra Hydroccarbon Complex in Kuala Kedah back in 2005 but unfortunately, as usual with the political scenario in Malaysia at that time , everything was a mess…(please check with the press about the MOU in Kedah)….after that the goverment of Perlis invited him to do the same in Perlis and the same thing happened as the fund has been blocked by the government.So the statement he has made , is considered as the last resort or opportunity for Malaysia before he divert all the fund to Indonesia , cause just remember that, eventhough he is a Malay, he is a Dutch Citizenship and the government of Malaysia cannot hold his fund anymore once he fly off to Indonesia…..So be smart to the most good hearted person in the world who is willing to share his inherited wealth to his people…
