The personal bank account of former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak is no longer frozen, according to an MACC source.

The source said the account was no longer linked to politics or matters investigated by the authorities.

“Since yesterday, Najib’s account is no longer frozen because it is not linked to matters under investigation now,” the source told Bernama.

Asked whether the withdrawal of the freeze also covered several other accounts, the source said the freeze would also be withdrawn for the other accounts as well.

The 1MDB Special Taskforce said on July 2 that it had frozen 408 bank accounts of individuals, political parties and NGOs involving a total of RM1.1 billion on June 26 and 29.

These accounts included those of 81 individuals and 55 companies suspected to have received funds from 1MDB.
