Two reports have been filed against former Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak by a former high-ranking official from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officer.
Datuk Abdul Razak Idris, who was a former investigations and intelligence director at the MACC, lodged the reports at the very graft busting agency he used to work at this morning, stating that the former PM had used his position of power for gratifications, as well as being the owner of several “unexplained properties.”
The news comes hot off the heels of the resignation of former MACC head Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad this morning.
Asked by media why he was only lodging the report now, Abdul Razak said that having filed it during the PM’s reign would have been futile, as no action would have been taken against him or to investigate the allegations in earnest.
Adding that a “former boss” urged him to file the reports, he stopped short of naming him. Some have wondered if the exit of Dzulkifli will usher in the return of Tan Sri Abu Kassim, his predecessor.
While saying that some of those close to him worried about his safety for boldly coming out against the once almightily powerful PM, he said that he is “already 69 years old. If I die, I die for the country.”
