KUALA LUMPUR (July 21): The Malaysian Government will fully cooperate with any lawful investigation of Malaysian companies or citizens in accordance with international protocols, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s press secretary Datuk Seri Tengku Sariffuddin.

In a statement today, he said Malaysian authorities have led the way in investigations into 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).

He said the company had been the subject of multiple investigations within Malaysia, including by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, Auditor General and bi-partisan Public Accounts Committee.

“After comprehensive review, the Attorney General found that that no crime was committed.

“1MDB is still the subject of an investigation by the Royal Malaysia Police.

Tengku Sariffuddin said the government noted the United States Department of Justice’s civil lawsuits brought against various assets.

“As previously stated, the Malaysian Government will fully cooperate with any lawful investigation of Malaysian companies or citizens in accordance with international protocols.

“As the Prime Minister has always maintained, if any wrongdoing is proven, the law will be enforced without exception,” he said.
