Najib walks a free man from anti-corruption agency building but grilling continues Thursday

As opposed to what most people thought, ex-Premier Najib Razak walked free from the MACC building at Putrajaya today.

But his grilling continues on Thursday, he said to the media.

Najib also revealed that his session with MACC was a more detailed continuation of the questioning the anti-corruption agency conducted in 2015.

“It is more detailed with the verification of documents and some details that are more complete,” a not-so-smiling Najib said to reporters at around 3.15pm.

Najib left the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters at about that time after being questioned for several hours on Tuesday.

The ex-PM, all smiling when he reached the MACC offices this morning, came out a more serious person and spoke to the media briefly.

In brief remarks to the press, he said he would have to return on Thursday (May 24) for further questioning.

His statement was recorded on Tuesday over the probe into SRC International Sdn Bhd, a former subsidiary of the controversial 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).

This came after MACC chief commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdul said the former premier will not be arrested, and instead, his statement will be recorded before any action can be taken, said The Star.

At a press conference here earlier, Shukri said the MACC will take the statements of two important witnesses relating to SRC International and 1MDB.Follow us on Social Media
