KUALA LUMPUR — August 4, 2015: 1Malaysia Development Bhd has welcomed the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission statement that no money from the company was transferred to the prime minister’s bank account.
“We have always maintained that the company has never provided any funds to the prime minister as per our media statement on July 3, 2015, confident that the truth will prevail,” said 1MDB president and group executive director Arul Kanda.
The MACC said in a statement yesterday that it had found in its investigation that the RM2.6 billion allegedly deposited into an account of the
prime minister came from donors and not 1MDB.
Arul also slammed PKR secretary-general Rafizi Ramli for continuing his allegations about the transfer despite the MACC statement.
Arul said that Rafizi was being highly irresponsible and that his continuing allegations were a deliberate attempt to undermine the company.
“This is despite 1MDB publishing on 3 June 2015 a summary of what the RM42 billion debt has been used for, information that is fully disclosed in 1MDB’s audited and publicly available accounts from 31 March 2010 to 31 March 2014,” he said. — Bernama
