JOHOR BARU: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission today confirmed that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has agreed to be interviewed over the RM2.6bil transferred into his personal account.
MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed said the prime minister will give his full cooperation to assist in the investigation.
He said MACC is still awaiting a suitable date and time to enable them to record a statement from the PM.
"MACC hopes the matter (recording the statement) can be done by the end of the year," he said.
Abu Kassim was speaking at a press conference after attending a basic training completion event for MACC officers at the Johor MACC headquarters, today.
Abu Kassim was responding to a statement by Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali, whom yesterday had asked MACC to record Najib's statement concerning the RM2.6 billion.
Apandi, in an interview with an online portal, had said he had instructed MACC to finalise its probe into former 1Malaysia Development Bhd subsidiary, SRC International, and the RM2.6 billion.
