PETALING JAYA: Investigations into the case involving Court of Appeals Judge Datuk Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali has been completed, says the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

The MACC added that the investigation papers had been presented to the Attorney General’s Chambers on May 18 for further review and action.

It was reported that the MACC had on April 29 defended its decision to investigate Mohd Nazlan, saying that it had the authority to do so against any "officers of public bodies".

The MACC investigations came following claims by blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin, alleging that there were funds transferred to Mohd Nazlan's account during his time as the group general counsel and company secretary of Maybank.

Mohd Nazlan lodged a police report against Raja Petra on April 21, denying the accusations, which he said were malicious, baseless and aimed at tarnishing his credibility as a judge.

He was the High Court judge who had sentenced former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak to 12 years jail and a RM210mil fine in July 2020 over the misappropriation of RM42mil of SRC International Sdn Bhd funds.
