DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang has proposed three tutors to school Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak on the government's financial scandals.
"Salleh should seek proper schooling on the subjects of the BMF, Bank Negara forex and 1MDB scandals before he makes a fool of himself in his blog," Lim said in a statement today.
Salleh yesterday said the government's exposure through 1MDB involved only the paid-up capital, which meant that the BMF scandal in the 1980s during the Mahathir-administration was worse.
In view of this, Salleh said a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) should be held on the BMF scandal and Bank Negara's losses in the forex market in the early 1990s.
This was after Lim and former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad called for probes into the BMF and forex scandals, as well as into 1MDB.
