AUDIT REPORT | The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has been urged to investigate the Youth and Sports Ministry and the Transport Ministry based on the Auditor-General’s Report 2017 (Series 2) released today.

Auditor-general Madinah Mohamad said there were several matters and punitive issues which needed to be addressed regarding the reports involving the two ministries.

“This does not mean that wrongdoing has been proven, but there is a need for further investigation. 

"For example, if a civil servant is negligent, then the Public Service Department will investigate.

“If it involves a contractor, it will be investigated by the Malaysian Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) and authorities. 

"So, it is subject to further investigation. It does not mean punishment has been meted out,” she said at a joint press conference with PAC chairperson Ronald Kiandee after handing over a book containing the report to the committee.

Kiandee refused to elaborate on the matter, except to say: “As the PAC, of course we will look into the matter.”
