SINGAPORE (Dec 10): Malaysia’s ex-prime minister, Najib Razak, has been arrested yet again by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC). But this time, over the “tampering” of the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) final audit report.

Najib arrived at the MACC headquarters earlier today at 10.40am, apparently to assist in investigations regarding the above allegations. He was later arrested at about 11.00am.

At around 1.20pm, Najib was released after posting bail.

MACC is believed to charge Najib and former 1MDB president Arul Kanda this Wednesday over the alleged tampering of the audit report.

The allegations were made following claims from Auditor-General Tan Sri Madinah Mohamad on Nov 25 that parts of the 1MDB final audit report was removed. The removed sections involved the presence of alleged 1MDB mastermind Low Taek Jho, also known as Jho Low, as well as the financial status of 1MDB.

She revealed that the order to make changes to the audit report came from Tan Sri Shukry Salleh, who was then the principal private secretary to Najib when he was prime minister. The changes were made on Feb 26, 2016 on grounds that it was a “sensitive issue”.
