KUALA LUMPUR — February 2, 2016: The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has confirmed that the National Audit Department (NAD) will tabling the final audit report on 1Malaysia Development Berhad this month.
In stating this today, PAC chairman Datuk Hasan Arifin also criticised a news portal report today which claimed that the department had failed to keep to the dateline for the final report to be tabled.
“This baseless and irresponsible news report is clearly intended to tarnish the reputation and credibility of the PAC and NAD which are committed to
conducting a transparent and accountable auditing on 1MDB in the interest of the public.
“The PAC would like to stress that the NAD would definitely be tabling the final audit report on 1MDB this February,” he said in a statement.
Hasan also wants everyone to have confidence and trust in the PAC which also comprises opposition politicians.
“There is nothing that should be protected and the PAC report is based on accurate and truthful information,” Hasan stated.
On another matter, Hasan said the PAC regretted that Switzerland’s attorney-general had issued a media statement on 1MDB without first
communicating directly with the Malaysian government. — Bernama
