Najib To Face Fresh Charges Under Anti-Money Laundering Act
PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is expected to face several fresh charges under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act (Amla) 2001 on Wednesday (Aug 8).
Sources in the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) confirmed that the former prime minister will have a new set of charges against him.
“That is why we are calling him again today (Aug 7) to record his statement for tomorrow’s proceedings,” a source told The Star.
Najib will be meeting graft investigators at the MACC academy in Jalan Duta at 5pm Tuesday (Aug 7).
The former prime minister is expected to be released after having his statement recorded and to present himself at the Jalan Duta court complex the next day.
Earlier Tuesday, photos of Najib’s car leaving his Langgak Duta residence escorted went viral, resulting in heated speculation online.
On July 4, Najib was charged with three counts of criminal breach of trust and one count of using his position for gratification as part of a probe into money missing from 1MDB. He pleaded not guilty to all charges.
The charges are related to the RM42mil that allegedly went from SRC International into Najib’s personal bank accounts.
