KUALA LUMPUR: Rafizi Ramli of PKR today flirted with prosecution under the law after revealing details of a document classified under the Official Secrets Act (OSA), linking 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) and the Armed Forces Fund Board (LTAT).
Rafizi divulged details from the document at a press conference at the Parliament lobby today but FMT will not be publishing the contents.
Whistleblowers who leak documents classified under the OSA can be jailed up to two years.
Despite this risk, the Pandan lawmaker argued that there must be justice for affected pensioners, who came under LTAT’s purview.
“This is especially so considering the fact that LTAT has refused to respond to the questions I asked last week.”
Rafizi had last week said official documents in his possession revealed that arrears 1MDB owed to an LTAT subsidiary company, Perbadanan Perwira Hartanah Malaysia’s (PPHM), up until September last year amounted to RM396.41 million.
This, he claimed, had directly affected LTAT’s cash flow which then resulted in the delay of gratuity payments to non-pensionable veteran soldiers.
