'Arul Kanda can still be held responsible for 1MDB scandal'

PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli said although 1MDB president and chief executive officer Arul Kanda Kandasamy is said to be resigning, he can still be held culpable for the scandal plaguing the state investment fund.
"Maybe his task is finished but he is the CEO before and he is still responsible for the actions prior to this," he said when commenting on reports that Arul Kanda may step down soon.
Meanwhile, Rafizi, who is also PKR secretary-general, said he had been summoned by the police following a report he lodged against 1MDB yesterday.
He added that he would give his statement by next Monday.
"I received a call from a Dang Wangi district police investigating officer who wanted to record my statement.
“I hope that investigations on Arul Kanda would go on according to the law," he said at the Parliament lobby today.
Yesterday, Rafizi lodged the police report over alleged violations of the law over payments made by 1MDB based on confidential documents he obtained.
Rafizi, who is also Pandan MP, has challenged Arul Kanda to debate him in the lock-up following his revelation of classified document under the Official Secrets Act (OSA).
He claimed the document showed a link between 1MDB and Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (Army Pensioners Fund) and since then police had started investigation into the matter.
