(June 5): Lawyers representing Malaysia’s ex-premier Najib Razak said on Tuesday they had quit as Najib’s wife prepared to make a statement to anti-graft agents as part of an investigation into a former unit of state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor is expected to arrive at the headquarters of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) at 11am to have her statement recorded in connection with a suspicious transfer of about US$10.6 million ($14 million) from the former 1MDB unit SRC International.

The sum is just a fraction of the billions of dollars allegedly siphoned from 1MDB, the state fund that Najib set up, in a scandal that dogged the last three years of his near-decade-long rule and was a key reason why he was voted out in a May 9 election.
