Nur Jazlan: Father-in-law quit for 'someone else's mistake'

Nur Jazlan Mohamed has claimed that his father-in-law, a former Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) governor, the late Jaffar Hussein, had resigned for “someone else’s mistake”.

The deputy home minister's remarks came in light of former BNM assistant governor Abdul Murad Khalid’s claims that the central bank had lost US$10 billion in the foreign exchange market during former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad's era.

Murad said despite the heavy losses, there was no investigation into the matter.

Jaffar, who served as the central bank’s governor from 1985 to 1994, resigned on April 1, 1994. He passed away four years later, in 1998.
