Anwar-Najib debate: Anwar calls for forensic audit on Sapura

KUALA LUMPUR: There must be a forensic audit on debt-laden oil and gas services firm Sapura Energy Bhd, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The Opposition leader also drew attention to the remuneration and pay package of Sapura's former group chief executive officer (CEO), which over the years totaled to more than a billion, despite the company trending in the red.

He therefore questioned why the company must be bailed out when its top gun made billions despite the company’s financial situation.

“We must see the bigger picture (from this aspect) of management problems, integrity and power abuse,” he said while referring to a list of companies that ran into financial woes.

Anwar also cited the example of troubled Perwaja Steel and how he had instructed for an audit to be conducted to look into its woes when he was finance minister.
