The tabling of the auditor-general's report on 1MDB to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has been postponed to the first week of March.

PAC chief Hasan Arifin said the report would not be tabled tomorrow and on Thursday, as previously scheduled, because most PAC members are overseas.

"It's important that all PAC members are present to hear the audit report on 1MDB.

"As such, the audit report on 1MDB will be tabled on a new date, expected to be in the first week of March," Hasan said in a statement today.

However, it is not known how many PAC members are overseas at the moment.

This is the second time the tabling of the audit report on 1MDB to the PAC has been postponed.

The PAC was originally supposed to receive the report in the middle of December last year, but this was delayed, allegedly on the auditor-general's request.

The PAC received the auditor-general's preliminary report on 1MDB on July 9, 2015, but it will not be revealed to the public until after the full report is tabled in Parliament.
