Deloitte wants to resign as auditor for SRC International

Deloitte wants to resign as auditor for SRC International

Deloitte Malaysia has stated their intention to resign as the auditor for former 1MDB subsidiary SRC International Sdn Bhd.

This was according to the Finance Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s parliamentary written reply to Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua.

“Based on information obtained from SRC International’s management, Deloitte had stated their intentions to resign.

“As for now, SRC International is still looking for a new auditor and until a new auditor is appointed, Deloitte is still their auditor.

“SRC International is committed to finding a new auditor to replace Deloitte,” read the written reply.

Pua had asked the finance minister to state if Deloitte was still SRC International’s auditor and when the company’s financial statements for 2015 and 2016 would be ready.

The second portion of his question was unanswered.

SRC International was established by 1MDB in 2011 to explore strategic investment opportunities in the energy sector.

The company secured a RM4 billion government guaranteed loan from Retirement Fund Incorporated (KWAP) in 2012 which was reportedly used for investments in Indonesia and Mongolia, among others.

A key figure in SRC International was Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil, a managing director of the company as well as a one-time chief investment officer at 1MDB.

The Singaporean court had heard that Nik Faisal approved the transfer of US$11.95 million from SRC International’s coffers to one Eric Tan Kim Loong, who is now said to be an alias for Malaysian businessman Jho Low.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Tan was the beneficiary of British Virgin Islands-based Tanore Finance, which had sent US$681 million to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s personal bank accounts.

SRC International had also been accused of transferring RM74 million to Najib’s bank accounts in 2014, based on documents shown to the media by attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali last year.

Finance Ministry Incorporated took over the reigns of SRC Interantional from 1MDB in the late 2012.
