1MDB response to news report of Swiss probe into Saudi oil company
1MDB response to news report of Swiss probe into Saudi oil company

1MDB notes a news report on the launch of an alleged investigation by Swiss prosecutors relating to a Saudi Arabian oil company, and reportedly relating to Swiss citizens and the Swiss banking system.
 
There is no suggestion of wrongdoing by 1MDB or any of its officials. So it is irresponsible and reprehensible for an act by Swiss investigators to be twisted and framed as an inquiry into 1MDB and its shareholder.
 
We wish to state in the strongest possible terms that 1MDB is not the subject of any criminal investigation either in Malaysia or internationally. We have and remain ready to assist the investigation of any lawful authority, in line with international protocols. Until today, 1MDB has not received any such request. 
 
1MDB asks all parties to refrain from politicising any alleged investigation by the Swiss authorities on non-Malaysian nationals, and, during this sensitive general election period, desist from trying to create links to 1MDB for political gain.
