PRESS STATEMENT: LIM KIT SIANG’S CONDITIONAL VOLUNTEERISM IS A POLITICAL GIMMICK
LIM KIT SIANG’S CONDITIONAL VOLUNTEERISM IS A POLITICAL GIMMICK
KUALA LUMPUR – Lim Kit Siang’s conditional volunteerism is evident in his attempt to push politically motivated terms of reference. Lim Kit Siang should instead, come with clean hands if he wishes to assist task force.
2. The Task Force that the Cabinet had agreed upon is confined to a limited set of terms of reference which are to analyze and scrutinize the forex losses involving Bank Negara in the 1990s, if there is any. The task force will then, propose the appropriate actions to be taken upon completion of the preliminary investigation within the stipulated time.
3. However, Kit Siang’s condition is also baseless and irrelevant as 1MDB had already been investigated by a Special Task Force comprises of, among others, the Auditor-General, Attorney-General and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and also by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) which also includes lawmakers from the Opposition.
