Malaysia's central bank governor lodges police report against WSJ

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's central bank governor has lodged a police report after the Wall Street journal published an allegedly classified document, according to Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Mr Najib on Friday (May 27) was asked at a press conference if he would be suing Wall Street Journal, following its latest article on allegations involving controversial state investment fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

"The governor of Bank Negara has lodged a police report," he said. "The police have to investigate. It's very serious, publishing confidential documents under OSA (official secrets act).

In the article published on Thursday, WSJ alleged investigations into corruption accusations involving Prime Minister Najib had been compromised by political pressure.

It also published an allegedly classified letter from central bank Bank Negara to the head of the Public Accounts Committee "confirming" that Hong Kong-based businessman Jho Low owned Good Star Limited - a now-dissolved company that had been the recipient of funds from 1MDB.
