Entire Cabinet responsible for 1MDB, says Ku Li


(The Malaysian Insider) – The entire Cabinet should be held responsible for the problems facing 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), Umno veteran Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah said today, adding that the onus was not on the prime minister alone.

Tengku Razaleigh, popularly known as Ku Li, said that if the Cabinet members were not aware of 1MDB’s issues, they should investigate it rather than point fingers at others.

“Everybody there (in the Cabinet) must be responsible collectively for the problem. You cannot say this is your problem, not my problem,” the former finance minister told reporters when met in the Parliament lobby.

“So long as you’re a member of the Cabinet, whether you know or don’t know what goes on in the government, you are equally responsible.”
