PUTRAJAYA: Former finance minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop (pic) appeared Friday before a special task force hearing on the 1990s Bank Negara forex losses.

Nor Mohamed, who was Bank Negara assistant governor at that time, arrived at the Finance Ministry building here at 3.25pm and spent 45 minutes at the session.

He declined to take questions from the press.

The seven-member task force is headed by former Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan.

The Government formed the task force to investigate the US$10bil (RM43.9bil) losses incurred by the central bank through forex dealings.

Previously, the task force had also called up PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who was then deputy prime minister and finance minister, as well as DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang, who was the Opposition Leader then.
