Police say they are still investigating the husband of former Bank Negara governor Zeti Akhtar Aziz over the receipt of funds related to state investment arm 1MDB in his bank account in Singapore.
In a statement, Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Zainuddin Yaacob said Tawfiq Ayman remains under investigation under Section 4(1)(a) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.
“Given that this case investigation involves testimonies in Malaysia as well as outside of the country, the police are taking further action under the Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Act 2002 to obtain testimonies from those who are overseas,” he said.
“We would also like to advise the people against making any statements or speculation on any platform until the police investigation is over.”
He added that it will then be referred to the Attorney-General’s Chambers for a decision.
