PETALING JAYA: Former SRC International director Datuk Suboh Md Yassin is believed to have surrendered to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission following a probe by the anti-graft body.
Suboh was arrested by the MACC and had his statement recorded after he returned to Malaysia from overseas last week, news portals reported.
The portals quoted sources as saying that he surrendered to the MACC and was given full witness protection.
He was said to have been on the run from the authorities for three years before he came forward.
MACC officials couldn’t be reached for comments yesterday.
In December 2015, it was reported that the then Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had his statement recorded by the MACC over its probe into SRC International and the RM2.6bil donation.
The interview came a week after the MACC recorded statements from Suboh and businessman Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low, as part of its probe into the former 1MDB subsidiary.
On Nov 20, 2015, it also recorded SRC International managing director Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil’s statement.
