PETALING JAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s questions with regard to 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) and the purchase of a new private jet by the Government can be answered by making comparisons with other countries, says Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak.

In a blogpost on Thursday, the Sabah state assembly speaker compared 1MDB to Singapore’s Temasek Holdings, which was established in 1971, and noted that the jet was important to ensure the security of the Prime Minister.
