He arrived to the MACC academy yesterday at 4.58pm with a small a small escort in tow.

Najib's entourage did not stop to address waiting pressmen who had been on standby there.

He left after 45 minutes once he had completed recording his statement.

On July 4, Najib was charged with three counts of criminal breach of trust and one count of using his position for gratification as part of a probe into money missing from 1MDB. He pleaded not guilty to all charges.
