1MDB today hailed the MACC's finding that the RM2.6 billion deposited into Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak private bank accounts did not originate from the Finance Ministry-owned company.
“1MDB welcomes the clear statement from the MACC which confirms that no funds from 1MDB were transferred to the prime minister.
"We have always maintained that the company has never provided any funds to the prime minister, as per our media statement on July 3, 2015, confident that the truth will prevail," 1MDB said in a statement this morning.
The MACC yesterday confirmed the widely-speculated massive deposits into Najib's bank accounts, but said they were actually 'donations' and not from 1MDB.
The MACC did not explain the origin of the funds.
Following MACC's explanation, 1MDB said continuing to suggest that the RM2.6 billion originated from the company would be irresponsible.
"To continue to suggest otherwise, as PKR secretary-general Rafizi Ramli ( photo ) did in his blog yesterday, is highly irresponsible and a deliberate attempt to undermine the company.
"This is despite 1MDB publishing on June 3, 2015 a summary of what the RM42 billion debt has been used for, information that is fully disclosed in 1MDB's audited and publicly-available accounts from March 31, 2010 to March 31, 2014," it said.
