Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng dismissed calls for him to apologise over his statement that RM19.4bil in GST credit refunds were "stolen", saying that the issue was not brought up in the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) report.

He also told reporters at the Parliament lobby on Wednesday that it was a political ploy by the Opposition to keep targeting him.
