Media Statement
by Tong Kooi Ong

1 February 2015

I refer to the malicious lies and fabrications against me in the blogs malaysianexpose.wordpress.com (29 January 2015) and kronismemahathir.wordpress.com (28 January 2015).

I vehemently and absolutely deny the accusations. I did not at any time short the Malaysian Ringgit.

I am an equity analyst, besides being an established entrepreneur. I am a value investor.

I have never shorted currencies or equities. I acquire and build companies, create value for shareholders and create employment through ideas and innovation. My track record speaks for itself.

I am certain Bank Negara Malaysia will be aware if there is such a heinous crime. Bank Negara has not contacted me and I pledge to cooperate fully with Bank Negara if my assistance is needed at any time.

As a Malaysian, I too am against economic saboteurs. I support the Prime Minister’s call that those who sabotage the country’s economy must be brought to justice.

Personally, I do not believe it is even remotely possible to break Bank Negara or crash the Ringgit. The foreign exchange reserves of the country are in excess of USD110 billion. The current account of the country is in surplus. Non-Ringgit borrowings are very low. I have gone on record with the above statement, both in my speeches and in the articles I wrote. Again, this is a matter of record.

The facts are that almost every currency in the world is currently falling against the USD (United States Dollars). This is due in part to the strengthening of the US economy and the expectations of an interest rate hike, following the end of the US quantitative easing since October 2014. Further, many countries in the region as well as Europe are depreciating their currencies and lowering their interest rates to promote growth.

I am currently unable to ascertain the individual(s) who is (are) responsible for the malicious lies against me, and what their intentions are. I will pursue legal course of action once I am able to identify those responsible. Making up such lies is beneath human decency.

Thank you.
