KUALA LUMPUR: The findings of the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) into Bank Negara’s foreign exchange losses in the 1990s will be made public.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said, in a statement, said the entire report which was tabled in Dewan Rakyat today, would be made a public document.
“The opposition’s allegations that the setting up of the RCI was politically motivated are baseless as the commission was set up based on existing laws, to verify the authenticity of allegations regarding the actual losses suffered by Bank Negara Malaysia in the 1990s,” she said.
On July 15, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong had assented to the forming of the RCI. The commission was given three months to conduct its inquiry, and presented its findings to the King on Oct 13.
The findings were then presented to the cabinet on Nov 3 before being made available to members of parliament today.
