Tony Pua: “I agree with for the CEO and board of directors of 1MDB to be fired”

KUALA LUMPUR, 26 May: The Member of Parliament for Petaling Jaya Utara, Tony Pua (DAP), agreed for the recommendation for the board directors of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) to be fired.

Pua said that the action may be appropriate because of the issues raised about the USD1.1 billion either in the form of assets or cash which have both been failed to be answered correctly.

“I agree and I have said earlier that the first issue is whether there is cash or not in Singapore.


“About the USD1.1 billion in the form of cash or assets could not be distinguished and they failed to provide the right answer.

“I think that the CEO cannot be used and must be fired. The board which should monitor what happens in 1MDB is not doing their job well and I agree that they too should be fired,” he said at the Parliament lobby today.

Yesterday, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah (BN-Gua Musang) described the call by tghe Deputy Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, for the board of directors of 1MDB to be fired and investigated is appropriate.

Prior to this, the Minister of Finance II, Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah, admitted that the government misinterpreted the form of savings or assets of USD1.1 billion or RM3.97 billion which is being kept at a Singaporean bank.

He said that the assets were brought back from the Cayman Islands in the form of non-monetary unit, as reported previously.
