PUTRAJAYA : Those who are named in the United States’ Department of Justice civil lawsuits leading to the freezing of assets linked to 1MDB must take responsibility to clear their name, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
At the same, Najib said the government will ensure that no public funds were abused.
“This is our stand and let us allow this issue be settled via the judicial process. The government will give its full co-operation on the matter,” he said on Monday.
The Prime Minister was speaking at an event to present offer letters to 1,100 village heads and village committee members to perform their Haj sponsored by 1MDB Foundation.
The US DOJ had filed civil suits to seize more than US$1bil (RM4.02bil) in assets allegedly linked to 1MDB.
