KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull is ready to face the legal challenge of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak over the probe into 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).

"Let him sue. I will accept it," said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner.

Najib has filed lawsuits against top investigators probing 1MDB.

He made three civil filings last week, alleging that Mohd Shukri, the police's Commercial Crime Investigations Department director Comm Datuk Seri Amar Singh and Attorney General Tommy Thomas were prejudiced against Najib over the course of their investigations.

Meanwhile, on the status of the investigations, Mohd Shukri said the MACC was done gathering evidence locally and was now looking at obtaining evidence from overseas.

"This makes the status of completion (of the probe) at around 50%. Half of it is here, another half overseas," he said.
