PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has refuted a news portal report alleging it has submitted 37 recommendations to prosecute Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in relation to its investigation into SRC International.
“We wish to clarify that the report saying 37 recommendations for prosecution have been made by the MACC against Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is untrue,” it said in a statement on Monday.
It also confirmed that investigation papers on SRC International and the RM2.6bil political donation had been returned to them by the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
In an immediate response to Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali, the MACC said it had taken note of the instructions given.
“MACC notes the instructions given by the AGC, which requires further explanation on some of the suggestions and actions proposed by the MACC.
“The MACC’s response will be submitted to the AGC soonest,” it said.
Apandi, in an earlier statement Monday, said that his office had finished studying two investigation papers submitted to them by the MACC on Dec 31.
However, he said the AGC required further explanation from the MACC on several suggestions and actions recommended by them in regard to the cases.
The MACC conducted investigations into SRC International over a RM4bil loan it took from Retirement Fund Inc (KWAP).
It also stated last August that the RM2.6bil deposited into the personal account of Najib came from donors and not from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). – The Star Online
