Earlier today, MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya played nine clips of phone conversations between Jan 5, 2016 and July 29, 2016 across a combined 45 minutes.
These phone recordings revolved around Najib when he was sorting out the issues surrounding the investigation into 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) in 2016.
Latheefa said the MACC is "quite satisfied" that the recordings are authentic, and does not see how releasing the clips is subjudicial to the ongoing court cases involving 1MDB and Najib, as the release was done in the public interest.
After the recordings were played, Latheefa said: "Based on our understanding there are signs of abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and fabrication of false evidence based on the recording."
