How­ever, the for­mer Bank Ne­gara gov­er­nor said she was not at lib­erty to dis­close any in­for­ma­tion, de­spite hav­ing had a meet­ing with the Em­ploy­ees Prov­i­dent Fund and Khaz­anah Na­sional Bhd.

Both are share­hold­ers of PLUS, the largest toll con­ces­sion­aire in the coun­try.

“I don’t know all the num­bers and de­tails about it. Tun Daim Zain­ud­din will make the an­nounce­ment when a de­ci­sion or con­clu­sion is reached.

“The work is in­tense and all of us are com­mit­ted to com­ing up with a so­lu­tion that is in the best in­ter­est of Malaysians.
