KUALA LUMPUR: The Auditor-General's final report on 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) is only expected to be completed by February nest year as it has yet to receive certain documents, says Public Accounts Committee (PAC) member Tony Pua (pic).

He said the PAC was told that the Auditor-General just received some new documents from 1MDB but was still waiting for a number of other documents they had promised.

"Because of that, the Auditor-General's final report to the PAC is still not ready," he said, adding they were told to only expect it in February or thereabouts.

"Whether or not it happens we will have to wait and see," Pua told reporters outside Parliament.

The PAC held a session with 1MDB president Arul Kanda Kandasamy earlier Friday but the media was barred from entering the Parliament compound to provide coverage.

Pua said that the PAC had completed fielding its questions to Arul, but it was too early to judge if the committee was satisfied with the proceedings so far.

He said the meeting also decided that 1MDB chairman Tan Sri Lodin Wok Kamaruddin and former 1MDB chairman Tan Sri Mohd Bakke Salleh would be asked to appear before the PAC on Jan 19 and 20.

He said each would appear separately before the PAC.
