PETALING JAYA - None of the six bank accounts frozen by the special task force probing the IMDB money trail are held by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

In a statement on Wednesday, Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail added that he was concerned by the leak of documents pertaining to the ongoing probe and called for a full investigation into the matter.

"This concern is also endorsed by the Governor of Bank Negara Malaysia Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz, Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief commissioner Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed.

"The documents disclosed in the Wall Street Journal article, "Malaysia orders freeze of accounts tied to probe of alleged transfers to Prime Minister Najib" dated July 7 were the subject-matter of an investigation and emphasised that it was crucial to preserve the integrity of the investigation as the public must not doubt the investigation," he said.

He noted that it was not a question of whistle blowing because the matter is already under investigation.

A further concern was that the documents were allegedly leaked from within the investigation itself.
