PARLIAMENT Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak pays his income tax on time, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Azalina Othman Said told the Parliament today.
Azalina said this in response in a written reply to Dr Ko Chung Sen (DAP-Kampar), who asked whether Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor publicly declared how much they paid for their income tax like leaders of other countries like United States president Barack Obama and former British prime minister David Cameron.
Dr Ko also asked whether the couple publicly declared the charities that received their contributions.
However, Azalina did not seem to answer the questions in her reply.
“Najib pays his income tax every year without fail to the Inland Revenue Board based on the rates and calculations made by the board.
“It is the prerogative of any leader to channel their contribution to any charity bodies,” she said in her brief reply.- Mkini
