KUALA LUMPUR: Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng has called on Bank Negara Malaysia to investigate a local bank over allegations of money laundering in an article by the Wall Street Journal.
“I hope BNM as the banking watch dog investigates the matter thoroughly,” he said when met outside Bank Negara headquarters on Wednesday.
Lim, together with Kajang councillor Young Syefura Othman, handed a letter to the Governor’s office over the allegations.
He lodged a police report over the matter on Saturday.
The WSJ article had named two AmBank officials as having assisted Malaysian businessman Low Taek Jho, better known as “Jho Low”, in transferring monies from 1Malaysia Development Berhad to the private bank account of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
