A Dusted 1MDB report could lead to charges being pressed against ex-Prime Minister Najib Razak.

The fallen Malaysian leader is to meet with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on Tuesday to give a statement on the SRC International.

This could be the start of the real troubles for Najib Razak, who has so far denied all wrongdoing in the 1MDB scandal.

Reports say the MACC investigation papers on SRC International (involving RM42 million) concluded in 2015 that there were at least 37 separate charges that could be made against Najib.

Former Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail was actually preparing to press charges against ousted premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak in 2015.

That was before his services were terminated “due to health reasons” as claimed by the Malaysian government under Najib.

But at a press conference three days ago, the new prime minister Mahathir Mohamad said he met Abdul Gani to find out more about what happened before he was removed.

“He claimed that he was preparing to charge Najib, (but) that morning, he was deprived of going to the office,” Dr Mahathir said.

Abdul Gani, who had been heading a task force to investigate the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) scandal, was abruptly terminated on July 27, 2015.

Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa had said Abdul Gani’s removal was due to health reasons.

Last Friday, the MACC served a notice to Najib compelling him to turn up at its headquarters next Tuesday for questioning in relation to ongoing SRC International investigations.

MACC officers turned up at the embattled former premier’s house yesterday to serve him the notice.

Najib allegedly received RM42 million from SRC International into his personal accounts between December 2014 and February 2015.Follow us on Social Media
