PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today played several sets of audio recordings of conversations involving former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and others which anti-graft chief Latheefa Koya described as leakage of information from the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
At a special press conference here, she said the audio clips pertained to conversations also involving Najb’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, former MACC chief Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad, a foreign dignitary and several other individuals.
“We have been given the recordings…pursuant to investigations, we can confirm their absolute authenticity.
“The contents are shocking; it’s a cover-up and subversion of justice….In the public interest, we’re making public the contents,” she said of the nine sets of audio clips of about 45-minute duration.
The other audio clips, among others, featured conversations expressing concern and the need to resolve issues speedily.
In one of the recordings was a somewhat heated conversation between a man and a woman said to be Najib and Rosmah.
According to Latheefa, what was said during the conversations contained elements of corruption and what may constitute offences under the Penal Code which the MACC would prefer the police to look into.
Najib, who was attending his SRC International trial at the Kuala Lumpur High Court, said during a break that he will consult his lawyers on the MACC revelation. – Bernama
