Perkasa repeats demand for royal inquiry on 1MDB, SRC

Malay right-wing pressure group Perkasa has reiterated its call for the setting up a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) to investigate allegations linking Datuk Seri Najib Razak with criminal wrongdoing involving 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) and SRC International Sdn Bhd. Perkasa vice-president, who also chairs the group's oversight and integrity bureau, Syed Osman Mansor said an RCI was imminent to clear the prime minister's reputation following Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's announcement recently that former attorney-general Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail had informed him with proof that funds from SRC had entered Najib's account and legally considered a crime. "This is a shocking statement to the bureau and should not be taken lightly by the authorities. "We suggest the police and relevant authorities take note and verify the information relayed in Muhyiddin's statement. "This is necessary as if it is untrue, the allegation tarnishes the prime minister's reputation. Based on Muhyiddin's statement, it is as if the PM has committed a crime," he said in a statement today. He said the bureau had remained consistent that the RCI should consist of former chief justices and attorney-generals and suggested former chief justice, Tun Abdul Hamid Mohamad or former attorney-general Tun Ahmad Fairuz Abdul Halim to chair the commission. He said since last year, the bureau had formally written to Najib for the RCI to take over investigation into controversies surrounding the fund were weighing down his administration. "The bureau hopes Najib will consider our suggestion to halt the allegations and clear his name as the prime minister." – February 28, 2016.]]>
