KUALA LUMPUR - The 1Malaysia Development Board (1MDB) will give its full co-operation to the officers of the special task force that "visited" its office in Jalan Sultan Ismail on Wednesday.

In a statement, 1MDB said it had provided documents and materials to aid the investigations undertaken by the task force.

"1MDB is extending its full co-operation to the task force and all lawful authorities.

"We reaffirm our previously stated position that if any wrongdoing is found then action must be taken by the lawful authorities as per due process and the laws of our country," it said.

The raid begun at about 11.30am is still on going.

The task force comprising Bank Negara governor Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akthar Aziz, Attorney General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail, Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar and Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission chief Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed has been investigating the 1MDB money trail.

It has frozen six bank accounts and investigating 17 other accounts involved in the 1MDB funds.

The task force has seized documents during raids on 1MDB-linked companies such as SRC International Sdn Bhd, Gandingan Mentari Sdn Bhd and Ihsan Perdana Sdn Bhd which allegedly were used to channel funds into what WSJ claims were the personal accounts of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
