PUTRAJAYA: Former top graft buster Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad has arrived to give his statement on the alleged tampering of the 1MDB final audit report.

He arrived at the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission headquarters at 10.25am on Wednesday (Dec 5).

Dzulkifli appeared calm as he got down from the car and was escorted by MACC officers.

On Nov 25, Auditor General Tan Sri Madinah said that one of the changes made to the 1MDB final audit report was the removal of a paragraph or paragraphs mentioning the presence of fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho or Jho Low.

She revealed that the directive to make the changes had come from Tan Sri Shukri Salleh.

Shukri had then served as the principal private secretary to Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak when he was Prime Minister.

The changes were made on Feb 26, 2016 on grounds that it was a sensitive issue and to prevent it from being manipulated by then political opposition.

Madinah said the original 1MDB final audit report without the amendments and removal of paragraphs was handed over to the MACC and police for their action.
