PUTRAJAYA: Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers went to Saudi Arabia in 2015 to look for the “prince” who had supposedly donated RM2.6bil to Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, but he failed to show the proof.
MACC chief commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull (pic) said someone had introduced the prince to the officers when they were in Saudi Arabia.
“In our standard operating procedures, we look for the witness ourselves but in this case, somebody introduced the prince to us.
“(That somebody said) you go and see this prince,” he told a press conference at the MACC headquarters here on Tuesday.
He said officers were then sent to question the “questionable” prince who claimed he had donated RM2.6bil to Najib.
“But when we asked for the supporting documents, he could not produce them.
“We then submitted this to then Attorney-General (Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali) to give us mutual legal assistance (MLA) to proceed, so that we could find out whether this is true or not, but he refused to consent,” said Shukri.
