PETALING JAYA: An MP from a northern state and the person who opened the doors of a Saudi palace to MACC officers are now on the commission’s radar – thanks to Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull tell-all about the 1MDB investment fund.
The guessing game has also started over the identity of the “one or two important witnesses” that MACC is looking out for to get statements in relation to SRC International, the former subsidiary of 1MDB.
“You wait, when we get one or two very important witnesses, you will get the story,” the chief commissioner told the reporters who packed his press conference in Putrajaya yesterday.
In addition, the chief commissioner also alluded to a “northern” MP who visited him twice when he was investigating the 1MDB case.
Mohd Shukri said the MP had asked him to stop the investigations, and asked him “You nak apa?” (what do you want?)
On the second occasion, Mohd Shukri, who was the Special Operations Division director of MACC at that time, said he had told the MP that he only wanted one thing – that no one interferes with his investigation.
Another person of interest would be the “somebody” who introduced the MACC investigators to the “Saudi Prince” who had allegedly made the RM2.6bil donation to Najib.
“In our SOP (standard operating procedures), we look for witnesses ourselves. But in this case, somebody introduced the prince to us,” said Shukri.
