KUALA LUMPUR – Government investment arm 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) today advised Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua to â€œwalk the talkâ€ and provide what he claimed to be â€œclear-cut evidenceâ€ on 1MDB to the lawful authorities for further investigation.
“1MDB has consistently maintained that if there is any evidence of wrongdoing, then action must be taken under the law,” said 1MDB in a statement here.
However, if Pua cannot provide such evidence, then he should stop making wild and unproven allegations, which were clearly politically motivated, it said.
The company said the Attorney-Generalâ€™s Chambers had presented the facts that related to the investigation on 1MDB via “a clear and unambiguous statement” issued on Oct 13.
“In summary, the AGC, having reviewed all relevant documentation contained in the Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) investigation papers (including the application forms submitted by 1MDB and the relevant BNM letters issued), applied the relevant laws governing such matters and confirmed that ‘no offence had been committed’ by 1MDB,” it said.
1MDB also said the company continued to work closely with the National Audit Department to provide requisite information for its final report, which will be presented by year end to the bi-partisan Public Accounts Committee, of which Pua is a member. – BERNAMA
