Swiss AG’s request on 1MDB investigation

Making a public statement, in my opinion, is not a proper move. Not only it could strain ties between two countries but also lead to bias in media reports.

Regarding the recent public statement by the Office of the Attorney-General of Switzerland, my office intends to take all possible steps to follow up and collaborate with our Swiss counterparts, and we look forward to receiving the findings of their investigations and materials through the normal channels. These materials will then be reviewed, alongside the findings of other relevant authorities and our own investigations, to determine the appropriate course of action.

As the Kedah Umno liaison committee chief, I humbly apologise to His Majesty the Sultan of Kedah and His Highness the members of the Regency Council for the actions of some Umno members that have sullied the honour of the sultan and the festivities of the birthday celebration of the Kedah sultan.

Rather quit

Based on my experience of over 30 years in this field, I know that MACC officers have always carried out their duties in a professional manner. I would like to stress that I am willing to resign, rather than take actions against my officers who have all this while been defending the MACC's independence, upholding justice, as well as carrying out their duties according to the law.
