1MDB probe

Singapore does not tolerate the use of its financial system as a refuge or conduit for illicit funds. Since the middle of last year, the Commercial Affairs Department and the Monetary Authority of Singapore have been actively investigating possible money-laundering and other offences carried out in Singapore. In connection with these investigations, we have sought and are continuing to seek information from several financial institutions, are interviewing various individuals, and have seized a large number of bank accounts.

Arrest me

I am even more resolute when I think of the upcoming Police Day on March 25. I am resolute to sing the police song Polis Sedia Berkhidmat. I will sing this song when I am in the lock-up. Everyone has a price for which they can be bought or compromised [...] my price is for those involved to own up and repent.
