KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 5, 2015:
BN strategic communications director Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan has slammed the opposition for posing trivial questions on the RM2.6 billion deposited into the personal accounts of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
In a report by Malaysiakini, today, Abdul Rahman said that such questions will not be entertained as it is asked with the sole purpose of misleading the public.
Speaking during a dialogue session on RTM’s TV1 newschannel last night, the Kota Belud MP said that while the opposition had claimed that the money was mainly procured from the people or 1Malaysia Development Bhd, it has since been successfully dismissed.
As such he opined that the opposition specifically PAS deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man is only interested in politicising the issue and refused to apologise when they should.
“If you accuse the Prime Minister of stealing the money and ask trivial questions on opening and closing the account, we may reveal it after the investigation.
“But my regret is that when the main issue is settled, people like Tuan Ibrahim would look into other feeble matters to mislead the public,” he was quoted as saying
Stating that Tuan Ibrahim’s questions on the subject was mere politicising, Abdul Rahman also contended that the revealing of the source of the funds took one month as the political climate was very heated.
“I think the issue of opening and closing a bank account is a normal procedure.
“When we answer the big question, Tuan Ibrahim should say, thank God, rakyat’s money was not stolen but he deliberately forgets the main accusation, that the money was stolen,” Abdul Rahman was quoted as saying in the report.
The response came after the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) announced on Monday that the RM2.6 billion which appeared to be deposited into Najib’s personal banks accounts came via donations towards Umno and not from 1MDB’s funding.
