KUALA LUMPUR — December 7, 2015: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today confirmed sending its officials to the Middle East to meet with the donor of the RM2.6 billion that was credited into the prime minister’s bank account a few years ago.

Following this, the agency would submit a report to the attorney-general as soon as the investigation is completed.

“However, the MACC cannot disclose the results of the meeting as the investigation is ongoing. If there is any news, we will announce it from time to time,” investigation director Datuk Azam Baki told Bernama here.

Azam however refused to say anything more.

Last August 5, the MACC confirmed that RM2.6 billion had been credited to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s bank account, allegedly by a donor in the Middle East.

Last Saturday, the commission recorded Najib’s statement on SRC International Sdn. Bhd. and the money that was deposited into his account. It was reported that the meeting lasted two and a half hours, with Najib giving good cooperation.

SRC was a subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad until it was placed directly under the finance ministry in 2012.
