PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong has questioned the non-fulfilment of one of Pakatan Harapan’s 100-day promises - to hold a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) into 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).
In a statement on Tuesday (Sept 11), he urged the Government to carry out that promise, saying that it is high time and fair for the rakyat that there is an open, transparent and politically-neutral platform to learn the truth about 1MDB, once and for all.
The MCA deputy president said this was following recent developments where the Singapore Government returned RM46mil to Malaysia and former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s revelation of certain bank documents including explanations showing that the Saudi Arabia Finance Ministry, as well as a Saudi Prince, had moved a large amount of funds into his personal accounts.
Dr Wee also questioned the status and progress of the April 2017 settlement agreement signed between Malaysian and the Abu Dhabi Government whose resolution would be mean that every single sen of missing money would be returned to 1MDB.
“According to the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Wall Street Journal exposes, several key players that had the most involvement in signing the agreements with 1MDB and had received funds directly from 1MDB into their personal accounts or accounts they control are the owners and CEO of Saudi’s PetroSaudi as well as IPIC and Aabar.
“Thus, they are the most heavily implicated with proof of wrongdoing together with Jho Low.
“Has the government called on these foreign personalities for questioning or have they requested extradition for them to be charged here too? Are there such plans to do so?” he asked.
