Former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak could be charged under the MACC Act 2009 if he failed to turn up at the agency headquarters in Putrajaya tomorrow.
MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Azam Baki said Najib was served with the notice that required him to be present at the commission’s headquarters at 10am tomorrow, to record his statement to facilitate investigation into the case involving SRC International Sdn Bhd.
“If he fails to turn up to give his statement, he can be charged under the MACC Act 2009,” he told Bernama when contacted today without elaborating further.
So far, the MACC only summoned Najib and has yet to decide to call any other individual, he said.
SRC International was a subsidiary of 1MDB before it was placed under the Finance Ministry in 2012.
On Friday, a team from the MACC arrived at Najib’s home at Taman Duta to deliver a notice requiring the Pekan MP to give a statement at the agency's headquarters tomorrow, to assist in the investigations into the SRC International Sdn Bhd case.
