KUWAIT CITY, Aug 1: On a course similar to the one the celebrity file is taking, the Public Prosecution has reopened the “Malaysian Fund” case, which had been suspended for two years due to lack of information from international bodies, reports Al-Seyassah daily. According to informed sources, the Public Prosecution Office wrote to the concerned authorities in Malaysia and their diplomatic bodies in this regard. The case was not filed, but rather was frozen due to lack of information during the previous period. After the completion of this file, the Public Prosecution will take its decision to either dismiss it or refer it to the Criminal Court.
On July 17, the Malaysian “Sarawak Report” website demanded that Kuwait freeze all funds deposited in the accounts under the name of Sabah Jaber Al-Mubarak in the branch of a Chinese bank in Kuwait so that Malaysia can lift the “banking secrecy” and reveal exactly what happened to the previous funds. In its report published at the time, the website revealed attempts to recover the funds worth two billion dollars of the Malaysian Fund, which are currently deposited in the branch of a Chinese bank in Kuwait, in collaboration with officials of the former ruling party in Malaysia, who was behind this corruption scandal.
The website urged Kuwait to cooperate with the international investigation into the case of the fund and with Interpol, especially after an online petition was launched and signed by 19,000 Malaysians demanding the return of the people’s money. It said, “In a country where a mother may be imprisoned for two years for stealing a bottle of milk to feed her children, the fund’s money is still suspended and those involved are still hidden.” The site highlighted the cooperation of the Kuwaiti government by sending delegations to Malaysia in the year 2020 to work together through protocols.
