KUWAIT CITY, Aug 9: Regarding the leak of information related to the investigations carried out by the State Security Department concerning the “Malaysian Fund” (1MDB) scandal, a top-level insider described such a leak as a “conspiracy aimed to obfuscate the issue in an attempt to question the integrity of the security agency handling the investigation”
The source explained that the initial investigations, which were supervised by the State Security Department with the defendants involved in the Malaysian Fund scandal, were recorded in both audio and visual formats, including that this recording exceeded four hours.
A traitor within the State Security Department was able to obtain the complete video and audio recordings. He then edited and divided it into short videos with the aim of obfuscating the issue.
He used some of these clips, ignoring the rest, to convey the message that the investigators were helping the suspects, being lenient with them, and assisting them in their case, reports Al-Qabas daily. However, this contradicts the reality as the State Security investigation report foils the leakage plot.
