KUALA LUMPUR – Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has been asked to be present at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office next Tuesday to facilitate investigation into the case involving the SRC International Sdn Bhd.
A MACC source said Najib was asked to give a statement pertaining to the case.
“A team of MACC officers have sent the notice (on the matter). So far he is asked to turn up next Tuesday to enable us to record his statement relating to SRC International,” he said when contacted here today.
SRC International is a subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), before it was placed under the Ministry of Finance in 2012.
On Jan 25, 2016, the media reported that Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali confirmed that Najib had not committed any criminal offences relating to the case involving a fund of RM2.6 billion and SRC International.
Mohamed Apandi was reported as saying that based on all the facts and evidence, he, as the Public Prosecutor, was satisfied that there was no criminal offence committed by Najib in relation to the three investigation papers.
In this regard, an investigation paper related to the RM2.6 billion funds, as well as two other investigation papers related to SRC International were returned to the MACC and were ordered closed.
Earlier, two MACC cars were seen entering the house of the Pekan MP in Jalan Langgak Duta here at 4 pm.
The silver-coloured Proton Preve and Inspira vehicles, with eight MACC officers, were seen leaving the area at 5.41 pm.
Earlier this morning, police seized 72 bags of jewellery, money in various currencies, and other valuables at a luxury condominium at Jalan Raja Chulan here, believed to be related to the former prime minister.
Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Amar Singh Ishar Singh reportedly said that 284 boxes containing various luxury brand handbags were also seized from three condominium units in the same area.
Najib and his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, have been blacklisted by the Immigration Department from leaving the country.
On Tuesday, Dr Mahathir said he expected that Najib would be prosecuted following investigations into claims that the former prime minister had laundered hundreds of millions of US dollars from 1MDB fund. – BERNAMA
