Puad should explain ‘lies’ he told students in Canberra
Lim Kit Siang says DG of Jasa told students PM had informed the Umno Supreme Council about the RM2.6 billion and obtained approval from Bank Negara to bring in the money.
KUALA LUMPUR: DAP Parliamentary Leader Lim Kit Siang wants all the “Veracity Tours” undertaken by Director-General of the Department of Special Affairs (Jasa), Mohd Puad Zarkashi, to be made public. “What were the countries and cities he has visited and when, the total expenses incurred, and the real motive and outcome of such tours.”
The question arises, added Lim who is also Gelang Patah MP, because Tourism Minister Nazri Abdul Aziz has contradicted what Puad told Malay students in Canberra, Australia, about the RM2.6 billion political “donation” which entered Prime Minister Najib Razak’s personal bank accounts. “Nazri said that the Umno Supreme Council was never informed about the so-called donation.”
It’s indeed a great irony that Puad should be telling lies instead of the truth in his “Veracity Tour” of Australia, lamented Lim.
Nazri’s account which contradicted that given by Puad, said Lim, tallied with that given by Umno Deputy President and former Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin. “He (Najib) never told us (Umno Supreme Council). He didn’t have to tell us. He just has to get approval from Bank Negara, that’s all.” (Malaysiakini),” Lim quoted Nazri as saying.

Kit Siang to PM: where are your Bank Negara documents?
DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang has cast doubts on Department of Special Affairs (Jasa) director-general Mohd Puad Zarkashi’s revelation that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had gotten the green light from former Bank Negara governor Zeti Akhtar Aziz, to accept a RM2.6 billion donation in 2013.
The Gelang Patah MP asks why Najib had not come forward to say this himself, if things were so clear cut.
“If Najib had Bank Negara documents which approved the deposit of RM2.6 billion in his personal banking accounts, why is Najib unable to show them in the past 11 months since the Wall Street Journal report?
“If the RM2.6 billion donation had come from the Saudi King, why can’t he produce documentation to prove it?
“Can Najib produce these documents now?” Lim asked in a statement today.
