The answer to your questions is with Bank Negara Malaysia as all wire transfer need approval from BNM. Governor Zeti (could be) fully aware but she is powerless as this is under Ministry of Finance – ah jib kor is in charge. The amount of funds that left the country peaked in 2009, when Anwar Ibrahim stated he will take over in September. All those ill gotten gains by UMNOputra over the past 50 years has to go overseas of else faced seizure? Even my 8 year old grandson interrupt us by telling us BNM has the answers but under OSA or the same act that Rafizi is being charged, they can keep their mouth shut….
