Come clean over DEIG, Rahman Dahlan tells Azmin
He said there were still many unanswered questions on the Selangor state investment fund controversy following reports alleging that the DEIG was worth only RM2.
He expressed concern that there was an estimated RM20bil to RM30bil worth of state assets transferred to DEIG, which was more than the RM2.6bil amount that were allegedly transferred into Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's personal account.
"We are disappointed with the answers on this issue.
"We heard that the MB is trying to explain to the public but he should not wait until the next sitting (state assembly meeting) but do it soon," he said at the 18th National Housing and Property Summit 2015 Friday.
On Wednesday, Damansara Utama state assembly man Yeo Bee Yin had told the state assembly that the funds had not been transferred to DEIG.
She was commenting on an online portal's report that RM30bil worth of assets, previously managed by Mentri Besar Incorporated might have been transferred to DEIG.
On the issue of the Prime Minister announcing the need for control of the Internet, he said that it it was basically to regulate based on best practices around the world.
"We do not asked for blogs and the Internet to be removed," he said implying that the Government would not ban the Internet.
The Prime Minister understood the function of the Internet, he added.
