Riza at MACC to give statements for the 2nd time


Riza Aziz (picture), the stepson of former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak, arrived at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in Putrajaya yesterday to give statements for the second time concerning investigations into 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).

Riza, who came in an Audi car wearing a suit, arrived at 3.05pm.

The CEO of a filming company based in Los Angeles, US, was directed to be present again yesterday for his statements to be taken.

More than 20 local and foreign media practitioners had gathered in front of the MACC building to wait for Riza’s arrival.

On Tuesday, Riza’s state ment on the same matter had been taken lasting more than nine hours before leaving the MACC building at 10.30pm.

Earlier, a local portal had reported that Najib’s stepson was called up to assist in the investigation into the 1MDB scandal who was believed to have used hundreds of millions of the company’s funds to produce a film in Hollywood.

MACC chief commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull confirmed on Tuesday that only Riza’s statements were recorded and there was no necessity to detain him for the moment.
