Investigation on 1MDB

It is too premature to tell. However, we are satisfied with the way the investigations are carried out.

Nur Jazlan Mohamed, Public Accounts Committee chairman, on the Auditor-General’s interim audit report on 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB)


As the interim report has not yet been shared with 1MDB, we are unable to comment on the PAC chairman’s statement that certain documents appear to have not been submitted.

Arul Kanda Kandasamy, 1MDB president and group executive director, reiterating its stand of "fully cooperating" with the Auditor-General after the latter said it was not getting certain 1MDB documents for its audit



Money trail controversy

Don’t listen to nonsense; right now there is too much nonsense in the social media. We will ensure that truth emerges in the end.

Baffling amounts of cash were deposited into it during the course of just two months at the start of this year.

Prime Minister’s wife

As the prime minister's wife, do not compare (yourself with anyone). Generally, you have to support your husband, you have to be knowledgeable, you have to know what is happening around you and you have to make sure that you are together with your husband to meet with the people. People like to know that this is the PM's wife and that they are together, they are family-oriented. So you have to support your husband, definitely. But don't compete with him.

Special Task Force

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 that 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


Such a statement will invite perceptions that the special task force is not independent, and had received instructions from Najib, who is the accused. This is not right and not good in his efforts to clear his name.
