Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin lodged a police report after the Finance Minister revealed that that the previous (BN led) government “stole” public funds. The reported RM18 billion funds that were supposed to be in the Amanah account which was used to return to business owners were missing.
Khairy Jamaluddin had ask the Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng whether he had initiated any probe into the issue. The Finance Minister said that internal investigations are ongoing and the Rembau MP finds it insufficient.
On 9th of August 2018, Khairy Jamaluddin arrived at the Sentul police headquarters to lodge a report regarding the issue of the “stolen” funds. Khairy Jamaluddin added that he will lodge another report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission the next day.
He also tweeted “I do not think an internal inquiry by @MOFmalaysia is sufficient when a serious allegation of misappropriation or “rompakan” has been made. Since @guanenglim is not keen on anything beyond an internal inquiry for now, I would like to nudge this along in the public’s interest. Later today and tomorrow I will be lodging a report with @PDRMsia and @SPRMMalaysia against former top officials of @MOFmalaysia at the material time the allegation took place. This is so that an open investigation can take place to a certain the veracity of @guanenglim’s expose. Otherwise we are left with sensational headlines about RM19bn missing or stolen without any real evidence being presented. If true, bring those responsible to justice. As a former minister, such a misappropriation, if true, must be investigated thoroughly & openly. So, rather than waiting for some internal inquiry by @MOFmalaysia, I hope @PDRMsia and @SPRMMalaysia will investigate @guanenglim’s allegation once my reports are made.”
Earlier in the week, Khairy Jamaluddin did not believed the words of Lim Guan Eng. He requested that the Finance Minister to show proof of such allegations. He tweeted “Again I asked @guanenglim in the dewan to break down the RM19bn GST input claim allegation in detail. Berapa banyak tidak di bayar balik sebab ada pertikaian oleh Kastam, tak ikut SOP, masih diaudit & berapa sebab sengaja tak nak bayar. Again, he had no details. Kalau nak buat tuduhan ‘rompak’ pun tunjuk lah details. Pecahan. Dia cuba jawab tadi “semua jumlah itu dirompak”. Saya ingatkan beliau kenyataan yang dia sendiri buat semalam yang bercanggah, dia backtrack dan sidetrack.”
