United States President Barack Obama will raise concerns with Datuk Seri Najib Razak on the transparency and independence of investigating agencies and the media probing into a political scandal plaguing the country.
Obama said this at the town hall session today to a young Malaysian participant who had asked the president's assistance in raising the issue with Najib.
He said even without the request, he would raise concerns about democratic abuse.
“I will do it. I was going to do it anyway. But since you asked, I will definitely do it.”
He was asked the question during the town hall session with the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative today.
The young man told Obama that Malaysia was embroiled in a political scandal and its frail justice system could not right it.
He asked Obama to raise the issue with Najib, to encourage transparency and independence of agencies like the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, Public Accounts Committee, central bank Bank Negara Malaysia and the media.
