The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has resubmitted its papers on the investigations into SRC International and the RM2.6 billion donation, to the Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC), a senior officer with the anti-graft agency said today.

MACC special operations chief Bahri Mohd Zin said the papers were resubmitted late last week, with the relevant explanations required by the AGC on several suggestions and actions that MACC had recommended after its initial submission of the investigation papers into the two cases.

The two cases are the RM2.6 billion found in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s bank accounts and claims that RM42 million flowed from state-owned SRC International into Najib’s accounts.

Bahri said that it is also likely that the AGC is pleased with the investigation papers as there was no request for the relevant MACC investigation officer to come in for any discussion on the facts of the case, the additional explanations given and the proposed actions to be taken.

"It is normal for the Attorney-General to call up the top management at MACC or the main investigation officer on any high-profile case before deciding on whether to prosecute the matter," Bahri told The Malaysian Insider when contacted, adding that such a request was not made for these two cases.

The Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC) had on January 18 returned the two investigation papers seeking more information.

Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali (pic) had said in a statement that he wanted additional information on the suggestions and recommendations MACC made on the two cases.

"After examining thoroughly the testimonies in the investigation papers, the AGC today returned the investigation papers to obtain an explanation from MACC on several suggestions and actions that MACC recommended.

"The AGC has also ordered that the investigation papers be returned soon," said Apandi.

The MACC had originally submitted the two investigation papers to the AGC on December 31. – January 25, 2016.
