PUTRAJAYA (May 22): Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak was being questioned Tuesday by anti-corruption police about a graft scandal that could lead to criminal charges against him.

He was summoned nearly two weeks after the defeat of his long-ruling coalition in national elections, a loss partly due to public anger over alleged corruption at the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), the state investment fund that Najib set up.

US investigators say Najib's associates stole and laundered US$4.5 billion ($6 billion) from the fund, some of which landed in Najib's bank account.
