He had said: “After over four decades in politics and the recent election campaign, which was regrettably personal and perhaps the most intense in Malaysian history. I will take a short break to spend time with my family whom I have not seen enough of in recent years.” However, on the same day of his departure, Najib had to abort his plans to go for a supposed holiday abroad following the Immigration Department’s move to bar him from leaving the country. Not long after that, Najib tweeted that he would adhere to the directive. Since then, Najib and his wife, have been called in for questioning by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to facilitate questioning into allegations of graft related to 1Malaysia Development Berhad and SRC International.
