It's difficult to read all these things in the news about leasing andbuying luxury jets.

"The jet is for use of the government, not the prime minister (only)," he told a news conference at the KL International Airport upon his return from London after having attended the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland.

Elaborating, Abdullah said: "The aircraft belongs to Penerbangan Malaysia Berhad; it was (bought with) their money. We just leased it like how MAS (Malaysia Airlines) leases aircraft from them."

Now that the fact has been established, the question to ask is this: What's the difference between buying it direct and leasing it from a government-owned company? Who pays the bills for MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operation) ultimately? The Treasury or the taxpayers?"
