KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians will stand to lose out if the ailing Sapura Energy Bhd goes bankrupt, says Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
The former prime minister said this was because Sapura employs more than 10,500 highly skilled locals and that its beneficiary owners include the 10.6 million investors in Amanah Saham Bumiputera (ASB).
The Pekan MP added that action should be taken if there were any misappropriation of funds.
"Malaysians in the end will lose out. We will lose an internationally recognised vehicle," he said during the live debate with Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on Thursday (May 12).
