Petronas is aware of recent press articles that repeat a false statement made in a report by a Washington-based policy group that purported to link Petronas to illegal outflows of capital from Malaysia.
This statement is completely false. Indeed, on its face, it is based upon a misquotation of a prior news article that the report cites as support for this statement.
Petronas is pursuing its legal remedies against those responsible for this report, and intends to take all other appropriate steps to protect itself against any further publication of this false statement.
