IGP: Police have completed 1MDB probe


PETALING JAYA: Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun said police have concluded their investigations into 1MDB.

There are no new developments to report to the media or public until new instructions are issued, he said.

If any such instruction is issued, it would come from Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) or the federal cabinet, he said.

“We have no need (to investigate further) as the investigation has been completed,” Malaysiakini quoted Fuzi as saying at a press conference after officiating PDRM’s Innovation Day at Universiti Malaysia Kelantan in Kota Bharu.

Police formed an investigation team in April 2016 to scrutinise the PAC report on 1MDB, a day after the PAC tabled the report in Parliament.

In June this year, former IGP Khalid Abu Bakar said the attorney-general’s chambers (AGC) had directed police to investigate the 1MDB issue further, based on investigation papers that Khalid said had been submitted sometime earlier this year.

The AGC and police have been under pressure to wrap up investigations after the United States Department of Justice, on June 15, filed the latest in its series of 1MDB-related civil forfeiture suits.
