Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said 1MDB was a "monstrosity" that abused the whole civil service, as the nation's coffers were used as "a personal kitty".

Speaking at the opening of the Institute of Strategic and International Studies (ISIS) Praxis Conference 2019 on Monday, the Prime Minister said the damage caused by the 1MDB scandal was not only financial, but also institutional and the government is trying to correct it.
