Najib at MACC on 1MDB audit report tampering


Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak yesterday came to the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters in Putrajaya, believed to assist an investigation over the tampering of the final audit report on 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).

His arrival at about 10.30am went unaware by media representatives waiting at the building’s main entrance until it was announced by an MACC spokesman.

On Nov 25, Auditor-General (A-G) Tan Sri Dr Madinah Mohamad revealed that the final audit report on 1MDB had been tampered and Najib knew about it.

Madinah also disclosed that two crucial subjects were dropped from the report, namely on the presence of wanted businessman Low Taek Jho or Jho Low at a 1MDB board meeting, as well as the actual financial status of 1MDB.

On the same day, the anti-graft body was reported as saying that it would commence an investigation into the report tampering and would be calling several witnesses to assist investigations.

Yesterday, MACC called former MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad to assist investigation.

Former A-G Tan Sri Ambrin Buang was again called to assist investigation on Wednesday after his initial appointment with MACC on Nov 26. — Bernama
