In an interview with Reuters earlier this year, Najib said he had never been a guide, but voluntarily made some things to help 1MDB, and at his head far b & # 39; 1MDB administration and board that made decisions.
In the interview with Sinar Harian, which was broadcast live on social media, Najib opposed the Goldman Sachs Group Inc. reservoir, lawyers and researchers for failing to protect the country in terms of 1MDB.
He said this when he asked if he ever saw, from an early stage, his & # 39; It would be possible for Low to make the country billions of ringgit lost.
"Action must be made if it is clear that it has committed an offense. At that time we had appointed lawyers, critics and Goldman Sachs, a global global investment bank.
"The responsibility of this bank and everything to protect the Malayan interests. If they did not protect the interests of Malaysia, how would I know?" Najib said a finance minister and chairman at 1MDB at the time.
He said that Goldman Sachs, lawyers and researchers involved in 1MDB should tell the government that there was "something wrong".
He said about his connections to Low, Najib saying that the businessman had been controversial, but formerly a councilor with the Terengganu Investigation Authority, the superintendent of 1MDB.
Najib said he did not know Low personal practices.
"I did not know later that he had a big gate and plane, he had parties – I was not involved, I did not know what he did as we know now. My relationship was with him professional himself, "he said.

"It must be a much more abundant history world, banned and totally insecure, totally able to promote sympathy and understanding, not to be poor, "Lim added his blog.

"Yesterday, it has been reported that IPIC has invaded Goldman Sachs for damaging as a result of licensing allegations to control IPIC," he wrote.
"If all these allegations are true, Jho Low might have made a decision with Goldman Sachs and the main IPIC management to lose IPIC."
Najib urged the people to see the full interview to answer their whole context rather than just focusing on one part.
"We know it's very easy to get a wrong understanding when we just read the one," he wrote.
