1MDB probe to go on without fear or favour, says new PAC chief
At a press conference immediately after the motion to appoint him was passed in the Dewan Rakyat, Hasan said the investigation, along with all other matters concerning the country’s finances, was a priority of the committee.
“Once the select committee has chosen the remaining three PAC members, I will call for a meeting to discuss and continue investigations into pending matters.
“I am new, so I will look at all the reports forwarded to me by the Auditor General in the meantime,” he said.
Hasan also denied allegations that the government was out to delay the PAC investigations into 1MDB, dismissing them as mere perceptions.
“The government has promised that it will be investigated, and the government MPs have said that we will speed up investigations and produce a report for the Dewan Rakyat.
“I cannot say when exactly I can call for a PAC meeting, because I have to wait for the other appointments, but if I can call for one within this sitting, then certainly I will,” he said.
