Tony Pua’s Recycled Allegations
We refer to YB Tony Pua’s press statement today. We note that YB Tony Pua has yet again recycled various allegations, which have in fact been answered by 1MDB since January 2015 via 48 press announcements that can be easily obtained on our website.
In addition, the Auditor-General has presented an interim report answering many of the questions raised, in early July 2015 to the PAC (of which YB Tony Pua is a member) and has committed to issuing a final report by the end of 2015.
YB Tony Pua is no doubt aware that 1MDB is the most investigated company in Malaysia. We have shared and will continue to share, all relevant information to the lawful investigating authorities such as the Auditor-General, Attorney-General, Bank Negara Malaysia, PDRM, MACC and the PAC. These independent, thorough and professional investigations are the appropriate forum to determine the truth about 1MDB.
A trial by certain media or by certain opposition politicians, outside of due process and the requirements of the law, will not benefit anyone.
1MDB is very much focused on the implementation of our rationalisation plan, which is going full steam ahead despite the recycled allegations of YB Tony Pua. We are committed to stabilising the company, meeting our debt obligations and delivering strategic projects of national importance: TRX, Bandar Malaysia and Edra Energy Berhad.
