KUALA LUMPUR: Former prime minister Najib Razak and wife Rosmah Mansor will be in Bukit Aman tomorrow to give their statements on the audio recordings released by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department assistant director (prosecution and legal) Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said the recording of their statements would be handled by the Bukit Aman Classified Criminal Investigation Unit.

“Yes, the two of them (Najib and Rosmah) will be called in tomorrow morning,” he told Bernama today.

Earlier, it was reported that police had recorded statements from 12 witnesses to facilitate investigations into nine audio recordings exposed by the MACC and allegedly involved a high-level criminal conspiracy.

Those who already have had their statements recorded included Baling MP Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim, Najib’s principal private secretary Shukry Mohd Salleh, and former special officer to Najib, Amhari Efendi Nazaruddin.

On Jan 8, the MACC released an audio recording of a conversation allegedly involving leakage of information from the Attorney-General’s Chambers to Najib, when he was the prime minister, and recordings of several other phone conversations in connection with investigations into the 1MDB and SRC International Sdn Bhd scandals.

Besides Najib, the conversations allegedly involved Rosmah, former MACC chief commissioner Dzulkifli Ahmad, a foreign figure and several other individuals.
