DAP’s Lim Kit Siang has urged the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) to re-open investigations into the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal and whereabouts of the pink diamond necklace.

The Iskandar Puteri MP said Malaysians are entitled to know the whereabouts of the US$27.3 million (RM144 million) 22-carat pink diamond necklace that was allegedly bought by Jho Low for the wife of “Malaysian Official 1” (MO1) as alleged by the US Department of Justice (DoJ).

“It is clear that the PAC of the 13th Parliament had done a great national disservice with its PAC Report tabled in Parliament in April 2016 when it refused to re-open investigations after the mountain of new evidence about the 1MDB scandal in the US Department of Justice (DOJ) kleptocratic litigation to forfeit 1MDB-linked assets in the US United Kingdom and Switzerland,” he said in a statement.

“Why maintain silence over the RM144 million pink diamond necklace now that the RM1 billion Equanimity luxury superyacht is in Malaysian waters and custody?” Lim added.

Lim also said Malaysians should thank former Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan for admitting to the whole world in an interview that “MO1” is none other than Datuk Seri Najib Razak and therefore the beneficiary of the necklace can be nobody else but Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
