Any renewed Public Accounts Committee (PAC) investigation on 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) must be motivated by truth and not blame, said former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Responding to Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng’s plan to restart the parliamentary watchdog’s investigation into the state investment firm, Najib insisted that the previous PAC spent six months on its probe then and had cleared him of wrongdoing.

Coincidentally, the Najib administration had recruited the then chairman of the PAC while it was in the middle of its inquiry into 1MDB.

“If they want to reopen investigations, I have nothing to object, as we are looking for the truth.

“So if investigations are reopened, don’t do it with a sentiment of trying to look for faults, now they are the government with the people’s mandate to control the administration,” he said.

Lim earlier filed a motion in Parliament seeking for the PAC and the Auditor-General to both reopen their respective investigations into 1MDB. – Malay Mail
