Probe on Zeti's husband and 1MDB funds still on, say police

PETALING JAYA: Investigations into Datuk Dr Tawfiq Ayman over 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB)-linked funds are still ongoing, say the police.

Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director Datuk Comm Zainuddin Yaacob (pic) confirmed that the husband of Bank Negara's former governor Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz is being probed for allegedly receiving funds from 1MDB.

"The funds (allegedly) received were linked to 1MDB and his bank account in Singapore.

"Seeing as the investigations require statements to be recorded in Malaysia and overseas, the police will be taking further action under the Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Act 2002, to obtain statements from overseas," he said in a statement on Wednesday (March 3).

The CCID, said Comm Zainuddin, is carrying out the investigations under Section 4(1)(a) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act (Amla) 2001.

He also urged the public not to speculate on the matter.
