Najib-appointed Attorney-General (AG) recently absolved the Malaysian Prime Minister of any wrongdoing in the scandal involving RM2.6bil donation into his personal accounts.
The announcement by the AG laid to rest threats of prosecution by the Malaysian authorities, and capped months of evasion by the Malaysian PM on the source of the money.
Malaysia’s former premiere, Tun Dato’ Seri Mahathir bin Mohamad, however, has now drawn Singapore into Malaysia’s alleged high-level graft scandal.
In his blog post the ex-premiere said:
“Then he (AG) goes on to say that the balance of US$620 million or RM2.03 billion has been returned to the Saudis. How and when was this done? We are told the balance is frozen by Singapore. Can Singapore explain the unfreezing and the delivery back to the Saudis? Or does Singapore also believe in the free gift story, the letter and the Saudi admission. Singapore is a financial centre. Can it be so gullible?”
On 15 July last year, the Singapore police issued orders under the Criminal Procedure Code to prohibit any dealings in respect of money in two bank accounts that are relevant to the (1MDB) investigation.
