PETALING JAYA: Stern action has been taken against a RM1.25bil solar hybrid project in Sarawak which was allegedly granted to a car-rental company under the instructions of former premier Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, said Education Minister Maszlee Malik. 

“Since last week, I have conducted a detailed investigation regarding this case and the relevant authorities have been informed of this matter.

“I have taken a strict decision last Friday (June 8) and I will officially announce my decision tomorrow, Monday June 11,” he said in a statement issued Sunday (June 10).

According to a report by whistleblower site Sarawak Report, Najib, during his premiership, had purportedly instructed the Education Ministry in January 2017 to appoint a company over a solar hybrid project for 369 schools located in the rural heartlands of Sarawak.
