BANGI: Malaysians should not be quick to panic when put under the spotlight by other countries.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said said this in response to the recent rehashing of the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) issue by the United States’ Department of Justice (DoJ).
“Every country has its law. If this is what the United States feels that they need to investigate, it is their right.
“We are an independent country and do not have to believe everything that they say,” she said.
She added that Malaysia has more important issues to worry about, like Pulau Batu Putih and Islamic State, which concern the country’s sovereignty.
“I am disappointed at how Malaysians believe everything said by foreign powers about our country, even without facts or evidence,” Azalina said.
She spoke to reporters after launching the Malaysia Legal Aid Convention 2017 here today.
