Arul Kanda turns up at MACC HQ

PUTRAJAYA: Former 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) group president and chief executive officer Arul Kanda Kandasamy nearly caught the media unaware at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters.

The press had been waiting for Arul Kanda, who was scheduled to be questioned by MACC investigators at 10am.

Arul Kanda however entered the MACC building via a back entrance at 9.30am on Tuesday (Dec 11), wearing a black cap to conceal his identity.

However, the media were quick to spot him as he was registering at the MACC reception.

Arul Kanda is expected to be  hauled to court Wednesday (Dec 12) to face charges over the alleged tampering of the 1MDB’s final audit report.

Arul Kanda, who helmed 1MDB from January 2015 to June this year, will be charged at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court with abetting former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in committing the offence.

Meanwhile, former Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa was also spotted entering the MACC headquarters at 9.30am.

It is not known yet if his presence today is related to the audit report tampering case.

However, he had been questioned by the MACC over the same case before.
