MACC report on SRC probe still dangling at AG's feet

KUALA LUMPUR - The Attorney-General's Chambers is still looking into the report submitted by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on its investigations into 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB)'s former subsidiary SRC international, said Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohd Apandi Ali.

"I am studying it... and (people) must bear in mind, they (MACC) have collected evidence from over 100 witnesses," he said.

Speaking to reporters after the Ceremonial Opening of the 2016 Legal Year at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre here, Mohd Apandi said that he will go through the evidence thoroughly with a fine comb.

At the end of last year, MACC deputy commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull, in a press statement, said that the agency had handed over investigation papers on the RM2.6 billion political donation in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak's personal bank accounts and SRC International, after interviews with more than 100 people, including the donor.

MACC maintained that there was only one donor in contradiction to Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's disclosure that there were in fact more than one donor.

MACC has been investigating SRC International over a RM4 billion fund, and had clarified in the past that it is not investigating 1MDB itself.

Shukri was reported as saying that the probe into the RM2.6 billion was still not completed as only witnesses in Malaysia have been interviewed.
