AG refused probe into 1MDB despite evidence

KUALA LUMPUR - The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) found evidence in late 2015 that RM42 million ($10.6 million) was transferred from a former subsidiary of state fund 1MDB into an account of then Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, but its recommendation for further investigation was rejected by the attorney general, a member of a panel that reviewed the commission’s case files told Reuters.

Najib, who was ousted in a shock election loss on May 9, has consistently denied wrongdoing in connection with alleged graft involving 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), and insisted $681 million of funds deposited in his personal bank account were a donation from a Saudi royal. The $10.6 million would be in addition to that sum.

Newly elected Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who was sworn in on Thursday, has vowed to investigate the 1MDB scandal and take action against those who may have abetted or benefited from corruption at the fund. At least six countries, including the United States and Switzerland, are investigating claims that $4.5 billion was allegedly siphoned off from 1MDB.

Kitingan, saying this in a statement here, pointed out to the euphoria of the immigrant community with the appointment of Warisan’s president, Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal, as the second chief minister sworn in unconstitutionally after the recent GE14.

They are already unable to control themselves from expressing their excitement for this prospect in the social media.

What is dangerous is the sudden escalation of what has been happening since the 1970s, which was the massive influx of illegal immigrant who later became overnight Bumiputeras,” Dr. Jeffrey warned.
