Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) will investigate anew the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) financial scandal from October 29, its chair Datuk Seri Ronald Kiandee announced today.

He said the bipartisan panel plans to call some 20 people to testify, and will start with former Auditor-General Tan Sri Ambrin Buang, who is currently heading a special government investigation committee on procurements, governance and finance.

“We have a list of some 20 witnesses and we are going to start by calling Tan Sri Ambrin as our first witness.

“It is going to be a long proceeding,” Kiandee told reporters in Parliament.

In August, the Dewan Rakyat approved a motion to reopen investigations into the scandal and misappropriations surrounding the sovereign investment fund and publicly reveal its findings.

The previous PAC chaired by Rompin MP Datuk Seri Hasan Arifin produced a report that found no wrongdoing by then prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak in 1MDB despite the latter’s position on 1MDB’s board as well as then finance minister.
