PROHAM expresses deep concern in the turn of events and revelations on the 1MDB inquiry process and the current confirmations of huge sum of funds in the personal account of the Prime Minister.
PROHAM is also concerned in the way authorities are responding to peaceful demonstrations which is negatively creating a climate of fear in speaking up for thrust and justice.
PROHAM reminds the authorities that Malaysia is a democratic society and we have made commitments to adhere to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
This is a matter of great importance to the nation and therefore PROHAM reiterates its call for the establishment of a Royal Commission of inquiry on this matter.
PROHAM is of the opinion that there is much public confusion on the handling of the funds and related matters.
We firmly believe that only an independent and transparent inquiry process will be able to restore public confidence in this matter.
PROHAM is also of the opinion that the Public Account Committee with its present members should be allowed to proceed with their task as the Standing Order allows them to continue as there is sufficient quorum.
In order to restore public confidence both locally and internationally bipartisan consensus is required and therefor a Parliamentary level inquiry is of utmost importance.
PROHAM reminds all members of the Cabinet that in their public service ultimately they stand accountable before God, King, people and their own conscience to do the right thing at this hour of great public dismay on the handling of this matter.

Datuk Kuthubul Zaman (Chairman) and Datuk Dr Denison Jayasooria (Secretary-General)
