The chairman of the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on Bank Negara Malaysia's (BNM) currency trading losses, Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan, was urged to retract a statement he made regarding the amount allegedly lost during the scandal from the 90s.
Lawyer for former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Haniff Khatri Abdulla, asked Sidek to retract previous remarks that suggested it was conclusive that BNM lost approximately RM31 billion from the currency speculation.
