PUTRAJAYA- There will be no cover-ups in the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal, said Tommy Thomas (pic).
The new Attorney General said that all matters pertaining to 1MDB are the immediate priority of the Government.
“I have to study the papers in that scandal. We shall institute criminal and civil proceedings in our courts against the alleged wrongdoers. All are equal before the law and no one is spared,” he said when he reported to work at the AG’s Chambers at Presint 4 on Wednesday (June 6).
Thomas said the AGC will contact its counterparts in the United States, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Singapore and other countries to extend its full cooperation and assistance to them in all matters related to the scandal.
Thomas said the Prime Minister has already announced the end of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) as well as the Anti-Fake News law, which are in the list that the AGC will look at.
He said the AGC will also study independently the international obligations undertaken by the previous Barisan Nasional administrations, such as contrast with other countries.
“This is to ascertain if they are lopsided against Malaysia’s interests,” he added.
Selective prosecution will also cease immediately, said Thomas.- The Star Online
