JOHOR BARU — November 12, 2015: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will record a statement from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in connection with investigations into SRC International and a RM2.6 billion political fund.
The agency has contacted the Prime Minister’s Office and the prime minister has agreed to have his statement recorded.
“The MACC is waiting for a date to interview him,” MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Abu Kassim told reporters after the passing-out parade involving MACC officers who completed a training programme here today.
He said the MACC targeted to complete its investigation into SRC International case before the year-end on condition it had access to two SRC International directors who are still abroad.
“Nevertheless, this does not prevent the MACC from calling the prime minister to give his statement,” he said.
On the political fund, he said MACC needed more time to complete the investigation as most of the transactions occurred overseas and this required the process of mutual legal assistance.
Today Najib released a statement to say that he will give his statement soon.
“I will give my cooperation and statement to the MACC so that the investigation can be completed as soon as possible. It is my intention to fully cooperate in the investigation into this case considering that it has resulted in various allegations and slander.” — Bernama
