Faulty ventilators: Action will be taken upon confirmation of wrongdoing

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today warned that action will be taken against those involved in corruption or misuse of public funds.

Anwar, who is also the Finance Minister, said the unity government has decided that action will be taken against them, once a report (of their wrongdoing) has been confirmed.

Citing the recent Public Accounts Committee (PAC) inquiry into the country's Covid-19 management, Anwar said the country suffered losses of RM505 million, as a result of 8.5 million expired Covid-19 vaccine doses, along with the 104 ventilator machines that failed.

"This PAC report is important, even though some people underestimate the issue of governance and corruption.

"But, just read the report (PAC), there are many problems.

"It must not be repeated. Therefore, we have decided to take action as soon as it can be confirmed.

"The officer (in charge), manager or minister... action must be taken against anyone responsible," he said during the Finance Ministry winding-up session in Dewan Rakyat today.
