Where’s 1MDB funds going, asks Ambiga

The Malaysian Insight

Lawyer-activist Ambiga Sreenevasan says while Malaysians are willing to show restraint during Covid-19, it doesn’t mean the government owes no responsibility to the people. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, April 17, 2020.

PUTRAJAYA should inform the public as to where the returned US$300 million (RM1.3 billion) linked to 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) is going, said lawyer-activist Ambiga Sreenevasan.

Ambiga told The Malaysian Insight this is needed to allay the concerns of civil society groups, which are alarmed that the money is being returned to a government consisting of Umno and even PAS, which previously did not acknowledge any wrongdoing in relation to the 1MDB scandal.

  • Muhiddin will not Thank the REAL PEOPLE WHO DID THE 1MDB RECOVERY Bcoz he is a Malay First NOT A MALAYSIAN FIRST So therefore he will SUPPORT THE MALAY STEAKERS FIRST. Blame Mahathir for all the malay theives If they go Off the Hook bcoz our malaysia JUDICIARY is yet to Prove its INTEGRITY bcoz the REAL FIGHTER OF 1MDB has been put in Tong Simen n Mudered. Malaysia AG Tommy Thomas has been replaced. Mahathir is Not A Statesman .
