Pakatan Harapan leaders said that the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) findings on the forex losses in the 1990s was “politically motivated”, while demanding a debate be held in Parliament on the report which was tabled on Thursday.

The report, which recommends a probe into current Pakatan chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and also de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, in their capacities as Prime Minister and Finance Minister when the scandal took place, was tabled in Parliament today, on the final day of sitting, despite having been prepared on October 13, more than a month ago.
