Three weeks later, AG 'still studying' 1MDB probe report

After receiving Bank Negara Malaysia’s investigation report nearly 20 days ago, the Attorney-General’s Chambers is still undecided on the follow-up action.

“We are still studying,” attorney-general (AG) Mohamed Apandi Ali told Malaysiakini yesterday.

He was asked about how soon follow-up action is expected from the AG’s Chambers.

“I am in Penang and not in the office.

“What is there to brief you (on the status)? I am not briefing anybody. No comment, thank you,” he said.

On Aug 14, Bank Negara submitted an investigation paper on 1MDB to the AG’s Chambers.

Bank Negara governor Zeti Akhtar Aziz held a press conference on the same day and revealed that it has recommended “ appropriate enforcement action ”.

Zeti, however, declined to disclose any findings of the investigation saying she was prohibited by law from doing so.

The Bank Negara governor was also part of a special task force set up to probe 1MDB as well as the RM2.6 billion transferred into Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s accounts.

However, Mohamed Apandi, who replaced Abdul Gani Patail as attorney-general on July 28, has since disbanded the task force.

The unexpected removal of Abdul Gani has ignited allegations that it was an attempt to derail the task force probe, which the government has denied.
