Don't challenge me, Anwar tells Muhyiddin

PUTRAJAYA; Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has reminded Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin not to challenge the government over the issue of the alleged RM600bil expenditure during the latter’s administration.

The Prime Minister said based on information obtained, there were certain processes and procedures, which were not abided, that involved fund expenditures, including during the movement control order.

He also alleged that there were companies with family links, but did not elaborate.

Anwar said during GE15, among issues played up was how the previous administration had spent a lot of money for the people.

The Prime Minister claimed that there were several billion ringgit involved in violation of procedure.

“Therefore, to Tan Sri Muhyiddin, do not challenge the government because there are several procedures and processes which were not abided,” he said on Tuesday (Dec 6).

On Monday (Dec 5), Anwar said he would leave it to the authorities to investigate the amount spent by Muhyiddin's administration during the Covid-19 pandemic.

There have been calls for a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to investigate government spending during the pandemic.

Muhyiddin, who is also Perikatan Nasional chairman, had said that he never embezzled or misused funds meant to help the people and that if he did, investigations would have started a long time ago.
