PRIME MINISTER'S OFFICE STATEMENT
3 July 2015
"Despite the Prime Minister's successful stewardship of Malaysia's economy against global headwinds - as recognised this week by Fitch's upgrade - there have been concerted efforts by certain individuals to undermine confidence in our economy, tarnish the government, and remove a democratically elected Prime Minister.
"These latest claims, attributed to unnamed investigators as a basis to attack the Prime Minister, are a continuation of this political sabotage.
"It has been reported that criminal leaking of documents, doctoring and extortion has taken place to mislead the media and public.
So it is incumbent on responsible members of the media not to accept documents as genuine unless verified by the appropriate authorities.
Regarding the allegations themselves, it must be noted that 1MDB has already stated that the company never provided funds to the Prime Minister."
