'1MDB spent RM838mil to secure loan guarantee'
The government-owned 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) may as well seek funds from loan sharks, based on the exorbitant payments it made just to secure a loan guarantee for its subsidiaries, Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua says

Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
