KUALA LUMPUR, May 21 – Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak could be charged under the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act 2009 if he fails to turn up at the agency headquarters in Putrajaya tomorrow.
MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Seri Azam Baki said Najib was served with the notice that required him to be present at the commission’s headquarters at 10am tomorrow to record his statement to facilitate investigation into the case involving SRC International Sdn Bhd.
“If he fails to turn up to give his statement, he can be charged under the MACC Act 2009,” he told Bernama when contacted here today without elaborating further. So far, the MACC only summoned Najib and has yet to decide on whether to call any other individual, he said.
SRC International was a subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) before it was placed under the Finance Ministry in 2012. On Friday, a team from the MACC arrived at Najib’s home at Taman Duta to deliver a notice requiring the Pekan Member of Parliament to give a statement at the agency headquarters tomorrow to assist in the investigations. — Bernama
