KUALA LUMPUR: Media personnel were barred from entering Parliament where the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) is holding its final round of proceedings on 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). 

The proceedings will see the committee hearing testimonies from former 1MDB president and chief executive officer Datuk Shahrol Halmi and the company’s ex-chairman Tan Sri Mohd Bakke Salleh on Thursday and Friday. 

Although media personnel were informed Wednesday that the committee would hold a press conference on Friday, several newsmen arrived in a hope of getting comments from Mohd Bakke after his testimony. 

However, newsmen arriving at Parliament's guardhouse Thursday were informed that they were barred from waiting outside the room where the PAC proceedings were to be held.  

In a statement on Tuesday, PAC chairman Datuk Hasan Arifin said the committee would have gathered sufficient information from previous hearings to make an objective, transparent and fair conclusion. 

The PAC probe into 1MDB has been ongoing since May 2015. 

The Auditor-General is also scheduled to present the final report on 1MDB on Feb 24 and 25.
