MP: If 1MDB snubs own adviser, what about ordinary Malaysians?

The fact that 1MDB's own advisory board member cannot get information from the state-owned fund does not bode well for ordinary Malaysians concerned about the company's massive debt, Kulai MP Teo Nie Ching said today.

Teo said this in reference to Abdul Samad Alias who revealed yesterday that he resigned from the 1MDB advisory board in July after failing to get a briefing on the company's affairs despite, repeated requests made over six months.

"If a member of the advisory board also could not get a briefing on the status of the company, how can the rest of us get access to the real financial standing of the company?" she said in a statement today.

Furthermore, Teo pointed out, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, against whom serious allegations related to the 1MDB issue have been made, heads the 1MDB advisory board.

"Did he (Najib) know that a member of his board had repeatedly requested for a briefing?

"Did he know that the request was not entertained for a period of six months?

"If 1MDB and Najib himself have nothing to hide, why is it so difficult to arrange a briefing for its advisory board member?" Teo asked.

Samad was appointed to the 1MDB advisory board on Jan 25 this year and he resigned on July 27.
