PETALING JAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pic) has challenged Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to reveal his bank accounts to disprove the allegations that 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) funds were transferred to the accounts.

“You (Najib) say you deny. Let’s see the accounts,” Dr Mahathir told BBC’s Jennifer Pak in an interview published on the British media website yesterday.

“When people charge him (Najib) over something, he says it is a plot, ‘it is nonsense, it is not true’.

“But prove that it is not true. It is very easy for him to prove that it is not true. He has these accounts in the bank. All he has to do is say ‘you examine my accounts, you look at it’,” said Dr Mahathir, who was prime minister for 22 years.

Najib has accused Dr Mahathir of using the 1MDB controversy as a means of “political sabotage” to topple him.

He claimed that Dr Mahathir’s motives were due to Najib’s refusal to implement some of his plans for the country. Dr Mahathir has refuted the claims.

Dr Mahathir also rubbished Najib’s claim that he was working with foreign parties to force Najib out.
