PETALING JAYA: Former Batu Kawan Umno division vice-chairman Datuk Seri Khairuddin Abu Hassan has lodged a report against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, in his capacity as chairman of the board of advisers of 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB), and two others.

The two are 1MDB chairman Tan Sri Lodin Wok Kamaruddin and its president, Arul Kanda Kandasamy.

Khairuddin, who filed his report on Friday at the Dang Wangi police station, called for a thorough investigation to be conducted into Najib’s written reply in the Dewan Rakyat on Mar 11 with regard to 1MDB.

He also called on the police to investigate certain claims made in a Sarawak Report article pertaining to 1MDB’s savings and assets.

In a phone conversation with The Star Online, Khairuddin maintained that if there is an element of truth in the Sarawak Report article, investigations have to be conducted.

“If there is an element of truth in what is said in the Sarawak Report expose, an investigation must be conducted. 1MDB must be accountable to the rakyat, definitely. We are the taxpayers, 1MDB is wholly owned by the Finance Ministry,” he said.

He denied having a political motive behind the filing of the police report.

Khairuddin was sacked from his post as Batu Kawan Umno division vice-chairman on Feb 28.

He lodged two police reports against 1MDB prior to his sacking.
