Najib leaves after 3 hours with cops

KUALA LUMPUR: Former prime minister Najib Razak left the Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) at Jalan Tun Razak here at 1pm after three hours of questioning.

Umno Supreme Council member Lokman Noor Adam confirmed that Najib had left the CCID building through an alternative exit.

He said Najib was questioned from 10am until 1pm.

The former prime minister faces a total of 32 charges for criminal breach of trust, abuse of power and money laundering-related offences linked to 1MDB and its former subsidiary SRC International.

His wife, Rosmah Mansor, was also called in for questioning at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission headquarters in Putrajaya this morning.

No charges have been brought against Rosmah, although MACC chief commissioner Mohd Shukri Abdull said the agency had completed its probe on her and submitted the investigation papers to the attorney-general.
