Former A-G Ambrin Buang at MACC for more grilling

Former auditor-general Ambrin Buang is alleged to be involved in the altered 1MDB audit report.

PUTRAJAYA: Former auditor-general Ambrin Buang arrived at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters for a second round of questioning, believed to be over the alleged tampering of the 1MDB audit report.

He arrived in a black Proton Perdana at 2pm. The former A-G only left MACC seven hours later at 9.30pm.

Ambrin was first called in for questioning last week.

Former MACC chief Dzulkifli Ahmad is also being questioned over the same matter. Dzulkifli, who arrived at the MACC headquarters this morning, has yet to leave.

Last month, Auditor-General Madinah Mohamad said the audit report on the controversial investment fund had been amended on the orders of various individuals.

They included former prime minister Najib Razak and his ex-principal private secretary Shukry Salleh; former chief secretary to the government Ali Hamsa, Ambrin and former 1MDB executive director Arul Kanda Kandasamy.

In a statement dated Nov 24, Madinah also said the mention of businessman Low Taek Jho’s presence at a meeting of the 1MDB board of directors and a paragraph containing two versions of the 1MDB financial statement for the year ended 2014 were removed.

MACC said it had opened an investigation into the claim and would call up several witnesses to assist in the probe.
