MALAYSIA’S 1MDB PROBE: MACC NOW FOCUS ON OBTAINING EVIDENCE FROM OVERSEAS

KUALA LUMPUR, The investigation into the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) case involving local evidence has been completed and the focus is now on obtaining evidence from overseas, says Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Mohd Shukri Abdull.

He said 50 per cent of the investigation into the case involved only local evidence, while the other 50 per cent would involve evidence from overseas.

“We have completed 50 per cent of the probe involving local evidence, now we are looking into evidence from overseas,” he told a press conference after the closing of ‘Walk Stop Talk: Six Hours Quarter Million Messages’ programme at Dataran Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur here.

Deputy Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail officiated the event which was also attended by Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abd Samad.

Meanwhile, when asked about the police report lodge by a non-governmental organisation (NGO) and the lawsuit filed by former Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak against him, Mohd Shukri refused to comment.

“It’s their (NGO) right to lodge a police report. As for the lawsuit, bring it on, let the court decide,” he said.

The NGO, known as Pemantau Malaysia Baru, was reported to have lodged a police report against Mohd Shukri, claiming that his decision to freeze accounts belonging to Najib’s immediate and extended family members as an act of revenge.

It was also reported that Najib had filed a lawsuit against three individuals including Mohd Shukri over their statements concerning the 1MDB.

The two others were Bukit Aman Commercial Crimes Investigation Department director Amar Singh Ishar Singh and Attorney-General Tommy Thomas.
