A Wall Street Journal journalist was kicked out of a 1MDB information session in Sydney, believed to have been organised by Special Affairs Department (Jasa).

"Just got kicked out of a 'public' event where 1MDB's Arul Kanda (was) explaining the controversy to Malaysian students in Sydney," WSJ Sydney bureau deputy chief Rachel Pannett said on Twitter.

Her colleague Tom Wright added only Malaysian students are allowed to ask questions at the event.
