MALAYSIAN OPPOSITION MPs HOLD UP WHERE IS THE RM2.6 BILLION PLACARDS AS PM ENDS BUDGET SPEECH


KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Opposition lawmakers held up placards demanding to know what has happened to the RM2.6 billion "donation" received by Datuk Seri Najib Razak as soon as the prime minister wrapped up his Budget 2016 speech today.
The lawmakers stood up, holding placards with the wordings, "Mana RM2.6 billion?" (Where is the RM2.6 billion), with the amount written in red.
This led to an uproar from Barisan Nasional MPs who were enraged by the opposition bloc's action.
Najib has come under fire over the RM2.6 billion, which was credited into his personal accounts prior to the 2013 general election. This was first reported by The Wall Street Journal and Sarawak Report.
The prime minister had denied the allegations at first, insisting that he had never taken money for personal gain but later said that the money was given by a Middle East donor for Malaysia's effort in combating terror group Isis.
This has become a subject of investigations by authorities, including the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.
Responding to this, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein(photo) said it was "childish" of the opposition to show up with the placards.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Azalina Othman(photo) Said also expressed similar sentiments but said the opposition had a right to their views.
Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin also weighed in on the incident, saying although it was not wrong to ask questions, but holding up placards was not the way.
