Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng on Tuesday said he is ready to fight the Opposition who want him referred to the Rights and Privileges Committee for supposedly misleading the Dewan Rakyat on the Goods and Services Tax (GST) refund issue.

When asked why he used the word "robbed", Lim did not give a direct reply and said: "We are talking about the PAC report. You want me to depart from the PAC report? I can, but then you are not asking me about the PAC report anymore."

The Finance Minister said what was important was to ensure that the money was returned to whom it belonged to.
