WHEN Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chairman Datuk Seri Dr Noraini Ahmad announced last Monday that “no money was missing” from the Goods and Services Tax (GST) refunds, this was seen as a slap in the face for the powerful Finance Minister, Lim Guan Eng.

In August last year, Lim told the Dewan Rakyat that RM19.4bil was “missing” from the GST tax refunds account and he accused the former Barisan Nasional government of “stealing” the people’s money.
