KUALA LUMPUR: Anti-corruption officers are to record a statement from former prime minister Najib Razak at 8am on Tuesday at his residence in Langgak Duta here, according to Najib’s lawyer, Harpal Singh Grewal.
“They have already agreed to come in the morning to take the statement. (If) any changes, we will inform on Monday,” he told reporters here today.
Harpal said he had not received any information on whether the investigation would involve Rosmah Mansor or not.
Yesterday, a team from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission arrived at Najib’s home to deliver a notice requiring him to give a statement on Tuesday to help in the investigations into SRC International Sdn Bhd, a former subsidiary of the government-owned 1Malaysia Development Berhad.
It was placed under the Finance Ministry in 2012.
Najib was prime minister and finance minister until he lost power at the general election on May 9.
The investigations concern the flow of as much as RM2.6 billion through his bank accounts and another sum, both linked to SRC International and 1MDB.
Najib has consistently denied any wrongdoing and the Attorney-General, Mohamed Apandi Ali, confirmed in 2016 that Najib had not committed any criminal act.
The incoming federal government has placed Najib, his wife Rosmah, Apandi, and several other key officials on a travel blacklist, barring them from leaving the country while investigations proceed.
