Najib leaves MACC after 4 hours of questioning


Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak left the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters in Putrajaya yesterday after about four hours of questioning.

The vehicle, which Najib was in and had entered the headquarters through the back door at 9.40am, was seen leaving the premises at 1.50pm.

MACC deputy chief commissioner (operation) Datuk Seri Azam Baki when contacted confirmed that Najib was called in by the commission to give his statement yesterday.

The media had earlier reported that Najib was called in by the MACC yesterday to assist investigations into several cases including the installation of solar energy panels in a Sarawak school.

A few minutes after he left the MACC building, Najib tweeted, “I was summoned by the MACC to assist investigations but it was not related to the solar case.”

Last month, Najib and former Treasury secretary general Tan Sri Dr Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah pleaded not guilty on charges of misappropriating government funds totalling RM6.6 billion.

This brings a total of 38 charges against Najib, in cases related to SRC International Sdn Bhd, 1Malaysia Development Bhd and Abu Dhabi’s International Petroleum Investment Co.
