Hisham dares DOJ to press charges
Umno vice-president Hishammuddin Hussein has challenged the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to press charges if they have proof of wrongdoing in the 1MDB affair.
Hishammuddin also sought to cast doubt on the identity of the nameless Malaysian Official 1 (MO1), whose wife has now appeared in DOJ's court filings.
Speaking at a press conference in Kuala Lumpur, Hishammuddin said if the DOJ did not press charges, it would only damage their credibility.
"Don't make statement after statement without taking action. When they press charges, those charged have a chance to clear their names," he added.
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/opposition 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.
