KUALA LUMPUR: An audit of the KLIA2 will be conducted following the Cabinet's green light, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.
He said the Auditor-General (A-G) would undertake the task.
"The Transport Ministry fully supported the move to audit KLIA2 to which the Cabinet has granted approval," he said in a statement on Friday.
Liow said he had from the onset backed the Public Accounts Committee's (PAC) call for the A-G to conduct further investigations into the construction and development of KLIA2.
"I agree that the public have the right to demand answers on this matter," he said.
He said given that Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) was a listed entity, the Cabinet needed to approve the involvement of the A-G to conduct the audit.
Liow noted it was and had always been the responsibility of MAHB to engage with PAC and respond in a transparent manner.
The KLIA2 development has been clouded by claims of cost overruns. - BERNAMA
