MACC records statements from SRC director Suboh, Jho Low

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has recorded the statements of SRC International director Datuk Suboh Md Yassin and businessman Low Taek Jho, as the graftbusters near the end of their probe into the Finance Ministry subsidiary.

Its deputy chief commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull said officers travelled overseas to meet Suboh and Low over the weekend to record their statements.

"I haven't read the statements. They (officers) just came back. The statements were taken overseas. I don't want to say where. It was done yesterday and two days ago," he told reporters Tuesday.

"Now we are waiting for PM's statement. We have sent a notice to the PM's Office and we are waiting for him to respond," Mohd Shukri said after a dinner to commemorate the MACC Academy's 10th anniversary here.

On Nov 20, the MACC recorded SRC's managing director Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil's statement for its investigations into the company.

Nik Faisal, Suboh and Low - who is more commonly known as Jho Low - were named in August by the commission as people they wanted to question regarding alleged misuse of funds in SRC.

SRC was a subsidiary of 1Malaysia Developmen Berhad (1MDB) until it was taken over by the Finance Ministry in February 2012 via a non-cash dividend transaction worth RM1mil (S$330,000).
