PETALING JAYA: Umno Supreme Council member Puad Zarkashi has questioned the role of former Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) governor Zeti Akhtar Aziz in the 1MDB scandal.

This comes after the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) recently revealed that some RM65 million in 1MDB funds were returned from Cutting Edge Industries Ltd, a company in Singapore controlled by Zeti’s husband Tawfiq Ayman and his partner Samuel Goh.

In a Facebook post today, Puad also shed some light on Goh and his ties to the 1MDB scandal.

Goh, he said, had admitted in a 2016 trial in Singapore, that he had assisted former BSI banker Yeo Jiawei in setting up fake bank accounts, including one for Aabar Investment PJS Ltd (BVI), for a fee of US$4 million.

“This is the fake account that received the payment from 1MDB. The authentic account was Aabar Investment PJS. 1MDB’s former CEO (Mohd Hazem Abdul Rahman) had previously testified that he did not check the authenticity of the bank account because he trusted Jho Low,” Puad said.
