Malaysia's embattled Najib questioned by anti-corruption agency

22 May 2018

Embattled former Prime Minister Najib Razak arrived at the headquarters of Malaysia's Anti-Corruption Commission today. Thy government agency has ordered him to explain a suspicious transfer of $10.6 million into his bank account. The sum is just a fraction of billions of dollars allegedly siphoned from state fund 1MDB. Najib has consistently denied any wrongdoing since the 1MDB scandal erupted in 2015. But he replaced an attorney-general and several MACC officers to shut down an initial investigation. The initial focus of the MACC's new probe is on how 42 million ringgit went from an entity known as SRC International into Najib's account.
