The investigation by the special task force is to determine whether WSJ's allegation that I took 1MDB funds for my personal interest has basis or not. The investigation must consider the veracity of the documents published by the newspaper to support their actions.

Najib Razak, explaining the scope of the special task force investigating The Wall Street Journal's claims against him was whether he used 1MDB funds for his personal interest


I would like to stress again that I had never taken 1MDB's funds for my personal interest. The Wall Street Journal’s (WSJ) allegation is made with malicious intent, guided and supported by certain quarters in the country which intend to force me to resign as prime minister and Umno president.

We will investigate The Wall Street Journal. If we let anyone leak an individual's or company's banking information this could threaten the country's economy and amount to economic sabotage.
