PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia May 22 (NNN-Bernama) — Former prime minister Najib Tun Razak said he will appear before the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) this Thursday to have his statement recorded again over the case involving SRC International Sdn Bhd.
The Pekan Member of Parliament, who spent more than five hours at the MACC headquarters here giving his statement on the case today, said the process was a follow-up of the statement he gave in 2015.
Clad in a dark blue suit, Najib said the questioning process started from 10 am to about 2.15 pm.
I had given a statement to the MACC in 2015 on the SRC issue and today’s statement is a follow-up of that. It is more detailed and comprehensive.
(The MACC gave) a half an hour break, I would like to thank the team that recorded my statement as they conducted it professionally, he told reporters before leaving the MACC headquarters building at 3.15pm in a white Vellfire MPV.
Earlier, MACC Chief Commissioner Mohd Shukri Abdull had confirmed that Najib would not be arrested today as he was only giving his statement and the commission would be taking the statement of two important witnesses in relation to the case.
Last Friday, the MACC issued a notice for Najib to give his statement today in connection with a case linked to SRC International, a subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) that has been placed under the Ministry of Finance in 2012.
On Jan 26 2016, the media reported Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali confirming there were no criminal offences committed by Najib in relation to the case involving the RM2.6 billion and SRC International.
