Proham recognises that the recent Wall Street Journal’s allegation that in March 2013 about USD 681 million from 1MDB were deposited in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak’s personal account has shocked the nation.
It is of utmost importance that this matter be urgently, thoroughly and with transparency be investigated by an independent Royal Commission of Inquiry so as to restore public confidence in the office of the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance.
Proham is of the opinion that during this period of investigation that Dato Seri Najib should relinquish all duties and responsibilities pertaining to Ministry of Finance and 1 MDB so as to facilitate investigations.
Proham calls on the Cabinet to view the serious implications of these allegations and ensure that truth is revealed for the good of the nation.
