"If he fails to turn up to give his statement, he can be charged under the MACC Act 2009", he told Bernama when contacted here yesterday without elaborating further.

PETALING JAYA Several viral photos of luxury watches, handbags and stacks of cash supposedly seized from former prime minister Najib Razak's home are fake. US investigators say Razak's associates stole and laundered $4.5 billion from the fund, some of which also landed in Razak's bank account, and that some $23 million was used to buy a rare diamond pink necklace for Mansor.
The task force will focus on tracking down embezzlement of any 1MDB funds by working with regulatory agencies in the U.S., Switzerland, Singapore, Canada, and other related countries, according to the statement.

In 2015 the anti-corruption agency began a probe on SRC International following allegations it had transferred millions of ringgit into Najib's private accounts.
