KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will investigate Bukit Aman CID director Datuk Seri Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd over the A$320,000 (RM971,500) found in his Australian bank account.
MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Seri Azam Baki, when contacted, confirmed the matter, saying the commission had opened an investigation paper after receiving a report on the case.
He also called on all quarters to give MACC the time and space to carry out the investigation.
Last Friday, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said the police had been informed of the matter by the Australian federal police in 2016, before the internal investigation by the Bukit Aman Department of Integrity and Standard Compliance.
The department’s investigation found that the account was initially opened by Najmuddin in 2011 to ease the channelling of funds for his son’s education in Australia. It also found that the funds were raised from the sale of his house in Shah Alam. – Bernama
