Cops record Najib's statement under Amla

Published:  |  Modified:

Police recorded former premier Najib Abdul Razak's statement under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act (Amla) 2001 this morning.

According to Sinar Harian, the Pekan MP arrived at Menara 238 in Jalan Tun Razak, which houses the federal police's Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) at about 10am.

Police officers then spent about an hour recording his statement.

Earlier this month, Najib was charged with three counts of money laundering under Amla 2001, and had four other earlier charges amended with regard to the RM42 million from SRC International found in his personal account.

The three deposits - amounting to RM27 million, RM5 million and RM 10 million respectively, were found to have been wired into his AmIslamic Bank account between Dec 26, 2014, and Feb 10, 2015.

No plea was recorded.

Earlier, it was reported that some 16 items, including jewellery, cash, foreign cash and luxury handbags, confiscated from six properties linked to Najib, were being probed under Amla 2001.
