Why was Riza Aziz on govt jet to China, asks Rafizi

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 9:01 PM

RafiziAn opposition lawmaker has questioned the need for Prime Minister Najib Razak’s stepson Riza Aziz to be part of the Malaysian delegation currently on a week-long visit to China.

Rafizi Ramli (PKR- Pandan) pointed out that Riza travelled on the government jet and this was clearly shown from screenshots of RTM1’s coverage, showing the arrival of the Malaysian delegation at the VIP Terminal of Beijing Capital International Airport at 12.30pm yesterday.

“Why is Riza Aziz on that jet that is paid by taxpayers’ money. These jets are expensive.

“He should not be given special treatment. He should be arrested and probed,” he said while debating Budget 2017 in the Dewan Rakyat today.

The US Department of Justice had announced on July 20 that it had filed a civil lawsuit seeking to seize more than USD1 billion in assets that it claimed were embezzled from state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad.

Although Najib was not named in the suit, Riza and Low Taek Jho – better known as Jho Low – were implicated.

The DoJ had accused Riza of using money from 1MDB to fund the movie Wolf of Wall Street.

The PKR vice-president asked if that could be one of the reasons for high wastage in the government’s operation.

He said according to a study carried out by National Oversight and Whistleblowers (NOW) which was based on the Auditor-General’s report, it showed that there was a lot of wastage in the government’s operation.
