Malaysian anti-graft body summons ex-PM in probe on former 1MDB unit

KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 (Reuters) - A Malaysian anti-graft body has summoned ex-premier Najib Razak to give a statement about an investigation involving a former unit of state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), two sources at the body told Reuters.

A member of a panel which reviewed the case files of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has said it found evidence that about $10.6 million was transferred from state fund unit SRC International to an account belonging to Najib.

A Reuters witness saw commission officials arrive at Najib’s residence in the capital, Kuala Lumpur, on Friday.

“They are there to serve notice (to Najib) to attend MACC on Tuesday next week to record a statement related to SRC,” one of the sources said. Another MACC source confirmed the matter.

A spokesman for Najib could not be immediately reached for comment. (Reporting by Rozanna Latiff Editing by Clarence Fernandez)
