Malaysian police looking for those behind leaked documents

Najib Razak


Malaysian police said on Monday a special task force set up to probe reported transfers involving a state investment fund to Prime Minister Najib Razak is now itself under investigation to see if its members leaked classified information.


The Wall Street Journal reported on July 3 that investigators had discovered nearly $700 million had moved through government agencies, banks and companies linked to 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) before ending up in Najib’s personal accounts.
The report created a storm of controversy in Malaysia with the prime minister dismissing the WSJ report as “political sabotage” and threatening possible legal action, while 1MDB denied any wrongdoing, saying it had not transferred any funds to the premier.
Police chief Khalid Abu Bakar in a statement released Monday said that after the publication of the report, on July 8, the Attorney-General instructed the police to launch an investigation into “the criminal act of leaking classified documents to foreign nationals.”
