PETALING JAYA: The RM2.6bil allegedly deposited into the personal account of the Prime Minister came from donors and not from 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB), said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC). 

"The report on the findings related to RM2.6bil has been referred to the Attorney-General (A-G).

"Results of the investigation have found that the RM2.6bil which was allegedly transferred into the account belonging to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak came from the contribution of donors, and not from 1MDB," said an MACC statement on Monday.  

The MACC said that during the formation of the special task force, MACC investigations only focused on issues related to 1MDB's former subsidiary SRC International and the channelling of RM2.6bil into Najib's personal account. 

It said that the police were carrying out investigations related to 1MDB while Bank Negara Malaysia focused its probe on financial procedures.  

The MACC is still continuing its investigations into SRC International involving RM4bil.

The commission also said that it would give full cooperation to the police but stressed that none of its officers was involved in any conspiracy to topple the Government. 

"The actions taken by the MACC was to carry out duties and functions as an independent commission, without 'fear or favour'," the statement said.  

The MACC also wants the public to refrain from speculating until investigations are completed.  

A deputy public prosecutor from MACC who was seconded to the A-G's Chambers was arrested on Saturday.  

The suspect is the third person hauled up over the weekend following the arrest of a former MACC adviser and an A-G's Chambers officer.
