Mat Sabu: Don't speculate on issues still being investigated


PETALING JAYA: There should be no speculation by the public on issues still being investigated by the Governance, Procurement and Finance Investigating Committee (GPFIC), says Mohamad Sabu.

The Defence Minister said that issues such as the procurement of helicopters are still being looked at by the GPFIC in its audit of the Defence Ministry's finances and procurement.

"As such, speculation on such matters can jeopardise the investigation," he said in a statement Monday (May 20).

Mohamad, better known as Mat Sabu, said that as with the "Land Swap" issue previously, the GPFIC's findings will be sent to the Cabinet before being reported to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and police for further action.

It was reported on Saturday (May 18) that the GPFIC had conducted an audit on the ministry and had found 16 questionable land swap deals, which included the Muara Tuang and Penrissen camps in Sarawak.
