KUALA LUMPUR, July 27 ― The discussions on 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB)-related matters in Parliament ended with a probe by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia said today.

He was responding to claims by over 30 federal Opposition lawmakers that their questions on 1MDB were rejected for the current Parliamentary sitting.

“About two years ago, PAC has investigated this matter. As far as Parliament is concerned, as far the Speaker is concerned, that is the end of the matter,” he said during a press conference at Parliament today.

However, Pandikar said that 19 1MDB related questions were allowed in the current session, as they were in line with standing orders.
