06 Dec 2018 / 13:08 H.

PUTRAJAYA: Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak (pix) arrived at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters here at 10.30am today.

Najib was expected to give his statement to graft-busters over the alleged tampering of the Auditor-General’s 1MDB final audit report.

Aside from Najib, it was reported that former 1MDB president Arul Kanda Kandasamy, former chief secretary to the government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa, and former attorney-general Tan Sri Apandi Ali, will also be called up for questioning.

Yesterday, former MACC chief Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad was questioned relating to the similar issue.

On Nov 25, Auditor-General Tan Sri Dr Madinah Mohamad issued a statement which said that some paragraphs mentioning the presence of businessman Low Taek Jho or Jho Low at a meeting of the 1MDB board of directors were removed from the report.

She also said other changes were made on the financial status of 1MDB.

It was reported that former auditor-general Tan Sri Ambrin Buang was also questioned on whether there was any new evidence or revelations that should have been included into the final report.

Ambrin was questioned for about eight hours by MACC officers on Wednesday.
