Dr Tan should demand full enquiry into leaked PAC documents, says 1MDB
(Bernama) – Public Accounts Committee (PAC) deputy chairman Dr Tan Seng Giaw (pic) should demand a full and transparent enquiry on how confidential PAC documents on 1Malaysia Development Board (1MDB) landed in the hands of a foreign media publication, said 1MDB.
1MDB in a statement Wednesday said Dr Tan at the same time should advise Tony Pua, his party member who is also a member of PAC, that one should not say things based on hearsay or without evidence.
“1MDB welcomes this profound advice of the eight-term MP for Kepong as timely and wise, to seek proof before making accusations and to uphold the rule of law, that one is innocent until proven guilty.
“We trust Dr Tan will prescribe the same advice to his junior Tony Pua,” it said.
The statement added Pua’s claim to fame is recycling unproven allegations on 1MBD, but when answers are given and facts shared, he was proven wrong.
However, he (Pua) would ignore the facts, change the topic and wait quietly for the next sensationalist and unproven allegation, it added.
The statement was issued in response to Dr Tan’s advice that one “can’t say things based on hearsay” pertaining to the leaks on PAC’s confidential documents to the foreign media publication. His remarks were carried by a news portal Tuesday.
