A-G set to table interim report on 1MDB by end June

The Auditor-General has completed an interim report following its probe on 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said the A-G would be able to table the report to the committee by the end of this month.

“The PAC will consider the findings of the interim report once it is presented to us,” the Nur Jazlan told reporters Monday in Parliament.

He added, however, that as the report is not final, the PAC would not make it public.

No date has been fixed for the presentation of the report to the PAC, Nur Jazlan said.

On another matter, he said the PAC would be calling the Agriculture Ministry to explain why it did not complete its projects on time with regard the RM2.12bil Integrated Aquaculture project under the National Key Economic Areas (NKEA).

He said this includes calling the ministry's chief secretary, who is also the financial controller, to explain why he signed off on contracts worth RM100mil when it was supposed to be signed by the minister.

"We are also calling Universiti Pertahanan, Universiti Malaya and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia over poor financial management in light of the government's intention of making this institution fully autonomous.
"The Maritime Enforcement Agency under the Prime Minister's Department will also be called by us over poor maintenance of its boats and ships patrolling the waters in Sabah involving RM231mil," he said.
