Bank Negara Malaysia has denied claims its governor Zeti Akhtar Aziz suffered a heart attack, according to Astro Awani .

A spokesperson from the central bank's corporate communications department dismissed the claim that Zeti is now hospitalised.

The spokesperson said Zeti is at work as usual.

Talk has also circulated that Zeti, who is part of the special task force probing the allegations against 1MDB, has resigned from her position.

However, this was also proven to be false.

Bank Negara and Zeti have been in the spotlight following a report by The Wall Street Journal claiming that RM2.6 billion of 1MDB-linked funds were deposited into Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s account.

The report had cited information from Malaysian investigators.

Following this, blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin claimed the leak could have originated from Bank Negara and named three high-ranking officials.

However, the central bank dismissed the allegation and filed a police report.
