Tan Sri Musa Aman is being sued by the Sabah Foundation which claims that the former chief minister has lost RM872 through dubious awards.

What you need to know: Current Sabah Foundation director Datuk Jamalul Kiram Mohd Zakaria filed the lawsuit on June 16, citing that the board of trustees believes that Musa Aman misused his position as the then-chairman of Sabah Foundation to order Rakyat Berjaya Sdn Bhd into the timber business. He is also accused of engineering a scheme of selling off Sabah Foundation’s concession areas for personal financial gain at between RM1,600 and RM2,000 per hectare. Allegedly, there is an attempt to hide the money trail by diverting the illegal activities through companies in tax-free countries such as the British Virgin Islands and other people’s bank accounts in Singapore and Hong Kong, and even his son who was studying in Perth at the time.

Who said what: Datuk Jamlul Kiram noted that Musa Aman’s tenure as chairman coincided with his term as the Sabah Chief Minister from March 2003 to May 2018, a lengthy 15 years. Aman Musa is implicated as having failed in his duties as Sabah Foundation chairman, as the organisation was formed to provide educational opportunities and facilites to Sabahans.
