KUALA LUMPUR: 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) has clarified that it does not own or operate any airlines.
This followed a fake Wikipedia entry and information circulating on social media regarding the set-up and operations of a so-called “1MDB Airlines Bhd”.
“We confirm there is no such company owned or operated by 1MDB,” the company said in a statement Friday.
1MDB said it has publicly confirmed since February 2015 that it would not enter into any new investments or new businesses and was focused solely on implementation of its rationalisation plan.
“We request the public to ignore this fake information and not to be influenced by any third party claiming to act on behalf of 1MDB in relation to this matter,” 1MDB added. – BERNAMA
