PETALING JAYA - A cryptic photo expressing hope that Malaysians will soon get the "truth" and that citizens were feeling "truth-deprived" has been posted by prominent Malaysian banker Datuk Seri Nazir Razak on his Instagram account, The Star reported.

Posting an image of a sign board bearing the words, "Truth. Next exit", the CIMB group chairman wrote: "I hope so. Our institutions must get us there quickly. Malaysians feeling truth-deprived, depressing and divisive. After truth we can find reconciliation," he said without elaborating further.

The posting on Monday afternoon had received more than 200 likes two hours later.

Mr Nazir, who is the younger brother of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, has been actively speaking out on the controversy over 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), whose board of advisers is chaired by Mr Najib.

In May, Mr Nazir had slammed the troubled state investment fund's top executives for failing to turn up for the Public Accounts Committee hearing.

He also previously questioned the state investment arm's lateness in beginning its March 2015 audit.

More recently, Mr Nazir has been linked with the setting up of a new non-governmental organisation with like-minded individuals such as Global Movement of Moderates chief executive officer Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah over concerns regarding Malaysia's present socio-political landscape
