Opposition MP Rafizi Ramli is not worried about a jail term that is hanging over his head and he is pressing ahead with more charges against supporters of the Prime Minister Najib Razak.

After announcing that a former PAS leader had received 1MDB money, he named Dr Nasharudin Hasan as the culprit, and he went further on Friday, lodging a report at the Malaysian anti-corruption agency (MACC).

Saying the MACC has the information that he delivered to their HQ, Rafizi told the media he was doing his duties as an elected representative and leaves it to the authorities to reopen the ‘closed’ 1MDB case.

He said there are sufficient evidence where the money that went to the former PAS leader came from, mentioning the private account of Najib Razak in the process.

Rafizi said he has the evidence which he gave to MACC and expects the anti-corruption agency to take appropriate actions.

Nasharudin has denied any wrong doings, saying he will sue Rafizi.

He said he never received any 1MDB money.
