Guan Eng: RCI report on forex scandal shocking

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng says he is shocked that the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on the forex scandal established that Bank Negara recorded RM31.5 billion in losses between 1992 and 1994 through the forex market.

Guan Eng says the figure is RM21 billion more than what was reported at the time.

The RCI recommended that an investigation is carried out to determine if former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his deputy Anwar Ibrahim had concealed facts from the cabinet.

According to the commission's report released this afternoon, the pair had likely abetted Nor Mohamed Yakcop and hid certain facts from the cabinet. Both are grave offences under the Penal Code.
