“This second act (DOJ) took place on the anniversary of the first act (When the Sarawak Report broke the story), and apparently it is an action replay.

“We would like to express our disappointment because once again the AGC was not informed or notified by the DoJ regarding these actions.

“We also found that there was no evidence of any investigation conducted by any law enforcement agency for a variety of jurisdictions showing misused money from 1MDB and that no criminal charges against any individuals for misappropriation of funds from 1MDB (were pursued), “he said in a statement.

Apandi said 1MDB is a Malaysian company and was the subject of several internal investigations, including that of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, the Auditor General and the Public Accounts Committee of the State.

“After review, we found that no crime was committed. At the moment, there is still an ongoing investigation by the Royal Malaysian Police on 1MDB,” he said.
