“(b) despite the malicious and wrong second WSJ article on 18 September 2015, upon payment of the “nearly USD1 billion” deposit by 1MDB, the options over the energy assets have indeed been terminated.”
1MDB said “the facts above speak for themselves” and that the information was publicly available.
1MDB said it wondered why Pua was not at all bothered by a second admission by WSJ in as many weeks that “it has reviewed documents that are part of the ongoing Public Accounts Committee (PAC) investigation”.
Pointing out that this was a breach of Malaysian law, 1MDB said Pua should focus on answering the ongoing police investigations and answering the people on this matter which it felt had “disgraced the PAC process”. – Bernama
