KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Malaysia’s anti-graft commission has called for a statement from the wife of former Prime Minister Najib Razak in its investigation into a former unit of state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), two sources at the commission said.

Rosmah Mansor will have to go to the headquarters of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) tomorrow to have her statement recorded in connection with investigations into SRC International, one source said.

“The notice was served by MACC officers at the home of the former prime minister today,” the source said on Friday.

Najib, ousted in a stunning election defeat last month, gave statements to MACC on May 22 on a suspicious transfer of $10.6 million into his bank account.
