KUALA LUMPUR, April 8 – Public Accounts Committee (PAC) member Tony Pua is now seeking to backpedal and question the PAC report on 1MDB after signing off the report without reservation, says 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). In a statement here Friday, 1MDB expressed shock over Pua’s comment that he was ’80 per cent’ satisfied with the PAC report to Parliament on Thursday.
“1MDB has provided to the National Audit Department (JAN) all documents in its possession. It has also explained to JAN why other documents could not be procured. YB Tony knows this, yet persists with his recycled rantings. The consensus report is a comprehensive and conclusive document. The PAC has asked the relevant enforcement agency to further investigate certain matters,” it said.
It also said that YB Tony now needs to respect the collective will of the PAC, switch off the political rhetoric and allow the lawful authorities to do their job. Pua, who is DAP national publicity secretary, was reported as being only 80 per cent satisfied with the committee’s report on 1MDB as he claimed there were still many unresolved matters with the company. PAC comprises government and opposition parliamentarians.
