Invitation for appearance before PAC
“Contrary to recent press reports and statements by certain individuals, we wish to clarify that it was only on 21 May 2015 that 1MDB received a letter from the Ministry of Finance, appending an invitation sent by the PAC.
This invitation, which was addressed to the Ministry of Finance, requested an appearance by the company before the committee on 26 May 2015.
Upon receiving this letter, 1MDB responded to the Ministry of Finance on 21 May 2015, the same day the company received the invitation.
As confirmed by YB Nur Jazlan, Chairman of the PAC, the date for this appearance is currently being finalised, due to the date proposed earlier being in conflict with previously scheduled overseas commitments.
We once again reiterate our intention to extend our full cooperation to the PAC and both Arul Kanda and Datuk Shahrol Halmi look forward to appearing before the committee and having the opportunity to clarify 1MDB's position.”
