: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is urged to come forward and address the allegations levelled at him through a live speech addressed to all Malaysians.
Perak Malaysian Youth Parliament (PBM) believe
such a move can address the concerns of the people following reports yesterday claiming the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) funds were transferred to Najib's personal accounts.
"Other than waiting for investigation from
various authorities to conclude, such a move would be the quickest way to address the allegations," he told Astro AWANI when contacted.
He said a live speech addressed to the nation is better than written replies on his blog or to the media.
"Najib can no longer take lightly the allegations. He can take action against those who spread false information," Rizmel added.
On Friday, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and Sarawak Report had published reports of the 1MDB money transferred to Najib's personal Ambank account. WSJ
reported that the document had traced nearly US$700 million (RM2.6 billion) was transferred to a government agency and later credited into
the Prime Minister’s personal accounts in separate deposits.
Sarawak Report meanwhile in its report claimed that RM42 million had been transferred into Najib’s accounts from SRC International Sdn Bhd, a company owned by the Finance Ministry. 1MDB said Friday said it had never provided any funds to Najib.
The Prime Minister’s Office in a statement issued on their Facebook account criticised
the action of several individuals which "affected the confidence in the country’s economy, discredited both the government and the prime minister and toppled the prime minister who was democratically elected."
According to the statement, the latest claim was part of a continuous political sabotage aimed at misleading the media and the public by using amended documents.
