APCO linked with government before 1 Malaysia, claims Anwar

Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim caused a stir in Parliament today when he claimed that APCO’s links with the Najib administration started well before the 1 Malaysia concept.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had previously stated that APCO’s engagement came after the inception of 1 Malaysia.

Today, Anwar said that leading figures within APCO were already working for the Malaysian government under the company Myteam Sdn Bhd.

“Before APCO existed in Kuala Lumpur, the government had appointed Myteam Sdb Bhd. This company, which had offices in KL, were led by key individuals who are also senior personnel within APCO.”

Paul Stranford who was the director of Myteam is now the CEO of APCO based in Kuala Lumpur and the other person, Margaret Kraus, is CEO of APCO Worldwide.

“Now the CEOs of APCO are key individuals involved in major accounts in Israel,” said Anwar.
