KUALA LUMPUR, May 22 ― Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has left his Langgak Duta residence for the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters in Putrajaya today.

His car was seen leaving the premises at 9.20am accompanied by police escort.

The entourage is believed to include his new legal team led by former Solicitor-General II Datuk Mohd Yusof Zainal Abiden.

This morning, Najib will have to turn up at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya to be questioned.

The former prime minister is facing a money-laundering probe linked to 1MDB, but has maintained his innocence throughout.

The investigation has seen raids launched on the Prime Minister’s Office in Perdana Putra, as well as private properties linked to the Pekan MP, including the Taman Duta mansion where he and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor are currently living, and two luxury condominium units at Block A and B of the Pavilion Residences in Kuala Lumpur.
