An anti-corruption NGO has argued how the removal of Article 117 from 1MDB’s memorandum and articles of association does not absolve Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak from being responsible in the company’s transactions.

Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) executive director Cynthia Gabriel was responding to the Minister of Finance Incorporated (MOF Inc) which said that it has agreed for the removal of the said article.

“It does not absolve him (Najib) of responsibility of all previous signatures he had made to the transactions,” said Cynthia to reporters when met after the Bar Council’s roundtable session in Kuala Lumpur.
