1MDB: Asset recovery requires foreign cooperation — Azam Baki

PUTRAJAYA (Oct 1): Asset recovery under the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) case requires a lot of cooperation and coordination from foreign countries, says Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki (pictured).

He said, as such, there was still a long way to complete investigations into the case.

“What can I say so far, the MACC is working with other agencies to recover the people's money that has been misappropriated abroad.

"The MACC is working with various countries including the US, the UK, Switzerland and Singapore," he said yesterday in a special interview with Bernama in conjunction with MACC’s 53rd anniversary, which falls today.

Azam said the MACC was taking proactive measures to track 1MDB assets and recover them, adding that he could not comment further on the case as it could affect the investigation and ongoing trial.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin previously said the government was committed to continuing efforts to recover 1MDB-related assets, as well as prosecute individuals and parties involved in the scandal.
