Audit & Bank Negara should investigate 1MDB funding scandal

SHAH ALAM, 21 Nov: The Auditor General, Tan Sri Ambrin Buang, has been asked to conduct an audit on the funding scandal involving 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

The Member of Parliament for Pandan, Rafizi Ramli, said that he will write a letter to Tan Sri Ambrin for that purpose.


He said that the letter will also be sent to the Governor of Bank Negara, Tan Sri Zeti Aziz, to be investigated under the Anti-Money Laundering Act.

Rafizi said that it is to investigate the RM7 billion fund kept secretly in an offshore bank in Cayman Islands.

He said that if Bank Negara does not want to investigate this matter, he will seek help from foreign governments to investigate the scandal.

“I will wait for the official response from Bank Negara first. If we receive a “copy paste” answer, we will work with Singapore, Hong king and Switzerland.

“If Bank Negara is strict about the anti-money laundering act, Bank Negara should have the statement on the flow of this money. This is not a small amount but RM7 billion,” he said, taken from Keadilan Daily.

He said that the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, completely copied the answer regarding the details about the company related to 1MDB (Bridge Partner).

Najib gave the answer that 1MDB ensures that the fees and expenses are properly stated in the audited financial statements. Meanwhile, other information stated in the financial statements was company propriety.

“This is a great insult to Parliament when the PM completely did not want to answer and just “copy pasted” the answer,” he said.
