KUALA LUMPUR — Oct. 23, 2018: Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and former Treasury secretary-general Tan Sri Mohd. Irwan Siregar Abdullah have been summoned to go to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in Putrajaya tomorrow and according to Bernama are expected to be charged on Thursday.

They have been asked to be present at 2pm to record their statements on the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) debt payments to the International Petroleum Investment Co. (IPIC). Najib had given his statements to on this a few times before.

On July 4, he pleaded not guilty to three charges of criminal breach of trust and one count of abuse of power over funds totalling RM42 million belonging to SRC International Sdn. Bhd.

Then on August 8 Najib was charged with three counts of having received RM42 million in proceeds from unlawful activities into two of his accounts four years ago, with the money belonging to SRC International, followed by yet more charges in September involving money laundering and corruption.
