Malaysian opposition leader claims he refused to pay for 'info' on 1MDB

PETALING JAYA - Democratic Action Party (DAP) veteran Lim Kit Siang claims he was offered "info" about 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) for money.

Lim says a stranger had called him a few days ago and asked if the DAP leader was interested in information relating to 1MDB.

"When I said yes, he said he needed money and when I told him clearly and unmistakably that these are two separate issues which I am not prepared to link together, the caller ended the phone conversation.

"I have not heard from him since," Lim wrote on his blog on Saturday.

Lim then went on to slam Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan for his comments on Twitter with regard to a video confession by former editor Lester Melanyi of a purported plot to topple Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

On Thursday, a video surfaced in which Lester claimed to have been involved in the publication and distribution of falsified information contained in Sarawak Report articles on 1MDB.
