MALAYSIA: IRWAN SERIGAR MAKES MACC, POLICE REPORTS OVER ‘MISSING’ GST REFUND MONEY

PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia Former Treasury secretary-general Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah today lodged reports with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and the police over the alleged loss of RM18 billion meant for the refund of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

He made a report at the MACC headquarters in the morning and one at the Putrajaya District Police headquarters in the evening.

He was at the MACC headquarters for about two hours from 9.30 am, having driven there himself in a black Chevrolet car.

As he emerged from the building, Mohd Irwan Serigar told reporters that he made a report so as to find out the truth because he felt that the allegation of the missing RM18 billion was unfounded.

The MACC gave the assurance that it will investigate the matter. The money did not go missing. It had been placed in the Consolidated Fund, he said, reiterating what he had said yesterday.

Asked whether he had given any document to the MACC, Mohd Irwan Serigar said all the relevant documents were with the Finance Ministry.

After making the police report, he urged for a detailed investigation into the matter.

Mohd Irwan Serigar had yesterday denied the allegation by Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng on Wednesday that there was a shortfall of RM18 billion in the RM19.4 billion meant for the refund of the GST to traders.
