The 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal will be included in the history syllabus, Education Minister Maszlee Malik pledged today.
Maszlee told Dewan Rakyat that he agreed that mistakes from history must be learned, therefore the “crimes” committed by politicians will also be included.
“I give my guarantee that the 1MDB issue will be included in our history syllabus so that the future generation will not repeat such a mistake,” he said during Question Time.
He was answering a supplementary question by Pontian MP Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan how long would an event be considered history and included into the syllabus.
Ahmad then asked Maszlee to also include the RM31.5 billion losses suffered by Bank Negara Malaysia due to its foreign exchange dealings between 1992 and 1994.
