PETALING JAYA: Swiss whistleblower Xavier Andre Justo says the arrest of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is a “great day for Malaysia and for justice”.

Justo, who brought the 1MDB scandal into the global spotlight, told The Star: “I have suffered so much with my wife in exposing this Malaysian scandal.

“That part of us is bonded forever with Malaysia.”

“It’s a day to celebrate, but we have to keep in mind that it’s just the beginning. Other accomplices have to be arrested in Malaysia and in other parts of the world,” said the 52-year-old.

The former Petrosaudi Inter­national executive has implicated PetroSaudi owner Tarek Obaid and its chief investment officer Patrick Mahony.

According to him, it will only be over for the Justo family when all the culprits are in jail.

“It’s not the end,” he added.

Previously, Justo had pledged to continue to help Malaysia in any way possible, including testifying in trials here.

He also returned to Malaysia for the third time on June 26 to help with the 1MDB investigation.
