When asked to comment on whether a Finance Minister should be aware of the movement of money in the Consolidated Fund meant for the Goods and Services Tax (GST) refunds, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said all monies belonging to the Government should be documented.
He added that if former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who was also the finance minister, claimed that he does not know about the movement of money, then “there must be something wrong.”
The Premier continued, saying that the government will trace the culprit and is ready to take any legal action. Dr Mahathir spoke to the press after officiating the Cities 4.0 and Business 4.0 International Conference and Exhibition on Monday.
