PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Nazir Razak (pic) has removed an Instagram post based on an inaccurate headline published by The Malaysian Insider regarding 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) after the news portal amended its previous heading. 

"Note that I have removed previous post because TMI (The Malaysian Insider) corrected its article about what 1MDB CEO said," according to Nazir in an Instagram post Sunday. 

The Malaysian Insider had initially placed their headline as “RM5 billion Goldman Sachs fees over five years, says 1MDB boss” before changing their headline to “RM5 billion costs for debts over 5 years, says 1MDB boss". 

"So, it was not the anticipated disclosure of total fees paid to GS (Goldman Sachs) - guess we still have to wait for PAC/AG report," said Nazir. 

"This is important for a full understanding of what transpired and how we go forwards," he added. 

1MDB president Arul Kanda Kandasamy provided a detailed briefing on 1MDB at the Forum Perdana in the Putra World Trade Centre on Saturday. 

In a statement, 1MDB said that the briefing was open to all Malaysians and was covered by various media organisations including alternative media. 

However, 1MDB noted the inaccurate headline by The Malaysian Insider that has been "widely and wrongly circulated in an Instagram posting that appears to have originated from one Dato' Sri Nazir Razak".
