Stolen 1MDB Billions Mustn’t Distract Us From Talking About LGE’s House, Govt Warns
KUALA LUMPUR: Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak reminded the press today not to get distracted by the sensational news the US Department Of Justice is seizing USD1Billion of personal assets misappropriated from 1MDB, when they could be publishing juicer news about the price Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng paid for his bungalow.
“1MDB is the victim of a politically motivated conspiracy,” a source close to the minister confirmed, “surely the US DOJ was misinformed by some pro-opposition bloggers. It’s not like one of the world’s super powers would have the time to fact-check 1MDB to the same standard as local authorities working for the Prime Minister!”
“I would suggest the media consider front page investigations into DAP member bungalow purchases to see if there were other ‘willing buyers and sellers.’ We’re happy to officially support the US with its 1MDB investigations, but they must understand the government has bigger fish to fry!”
