Dr M: I know contents of BNM, MACC and audit reports on 1MDB

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 8:01 AM

Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad today claimed to know the contents of the reports on 1MDB by three authorities, namely Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and the auditor-general.

As such, he had challenged attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali to swear on the Quran, saying he knew that the public prosecutor was lying when he cleared Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak with on the RM2.6 billion found in Najib’s private bank account.

“I know the contents of the BNM report as former attorney-general Gani Patail referred the report to the then deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin. Muhyiddin, who is now president of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu), often mentioned that the contents of the reports were referred to him,” Mahathir said.

“The Bersatu leadership, which includes me, has discussed the reports. That’s why I know about it,” he said in his blog posting today.

“I would not have dared to challenge Apandi (photo) to swear on the Quran if I know nothing about the reports. I knew Apandi had lied, that’s why the reports were classified under the Official Secrets Act,” he said.

“We know and God knows more (about it). Swear if you have the courage,” he challenged Apandi.

On July 17, Mahathir said if Pakatan Harapan forms the government after the next general election, it would summon Apandi over allegations that he had used the Official Secrets Act (OSA) to hide evidence.

However, Apandi in his response chided Mahathir for being “childish” for daring him to swear on the Quran in a mosque if he had truly found Najib to be free of wrongdoings related to the 1MDB fiasco.

Apandi also dismissed Mahathir’s accusation that he was concealing evidence of wrongdoing in the 1MDB scandal, adding “I don’t fear Mahathir, and have “nothing to hide”.

Mahathir, who is also Pakatan Harapan chairperson, said the money could not be transferred to another person without the corresponding letters or paper trails if the transaction was done through banks.

“The paper trails would be there for the authorities to look into and to check whether the accusation by any quarter is true,” he said.

“But in the case of the RM2.6 billion found in Najib’s account in Ambank, there are no documents to substantiate the transfer of the huge amount of money to Najib, besides the admission that an Arabian donated the money,” he said.

“This is not enough to persuade the court or the public on the source of the RM2.6 billion in Najib’s account,” Mahathir added.

“On the contrary, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) provided adequate evidence on the money trail from 1MDB to a few companies and banks in Cayman Island and Singapore, which later ended up in Najib’s Ambank account and even later went to a few other banks and a company owned by Jho Low.

“If DOJ had lied about it, then sue DOJ. But Apandi and Najib have yet to sue DOJ, although the ‘accusations’ pointed at them directly,” he added.

“If Apandi was in the dark about all this, then he should quit as the attorney- general. He still holds the position because he wants to protect Najib and also be protected by him.”

The former prime minister also reiterated the need for a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to look into the 1MDB fiasco.

“If a 30-year-old case needs to be investigated now, why the cover-up of a current crime?” he asked, without naming the RCI into BNM’s foreign exchange market (forex) losses in the 1980s.

“Do the right thing and fear nobody. If you are afraid of setting up an RCI, it is because of wrongdoing,” Mahathir added.
