Officials at the Ministry of Finance (MOF) have admitted that there were major breaches of protocol involving government funds worth RM600 billion during the tenure of former prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin

According to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who is also the Finance Minister, the matter was confirmed to him by the MOF officials, who alleged that the funds were misappropriated.

Anwar told the press after his first Cabinet meeting today, 5 December, that he has handed over the probe to the appropriate authorities, reported The Vibes.

"We have not raised or discussed it (a royal commission of inquiry to investigate the matter) with the Cabinet. I'll let our friends in the Cabinet make a call on this matter, but I can say with confidence that some serious rules were broken," said Anwar.

He added that Muhyiddin did not do a proper tender process while he was the prime minister.

"There were excessive procurements and when they were approved, the markups were too high, and went to certain parties, seeing that they had so much money to spend (during elections)."
