It is normal to ask for an “offset” in business dealings provided the money is not taken for personal use, says the Prime Minister.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad told reporters this after a session with Education Ministry staff on Thursday (Feb 6), adding that even the government, when making purchases for equipment, would ask for an offset.

He was commenting on media reports over allegations of corruption involving AirAsia and Airbus.
