The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has completed its investigation into the case of appeals court judge Mohd Nazlan Ghazali.

In a statement, the anti-graft agency said the investigation papers were submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers on May 18 for further study and subsequent action.

“The investigation that began in March has ended with the collection of related evidence, in line with the set guidelines and procedures,” it said.

MACC’s investigation was launched over allegations of unexplained money in Nazlan’s account.

It previously said it was bound by procedure to investigate any official report or complaint, after questions were raised about its probe of Nazlan who, as a High Court judge in 2020, found former prime minister Najib Razak guilty of criminal breach of trust, abuse of power and money laundering in the misappropriation of RM42 million in SRC International funds.

He also sentenced Najib to 12 years in jail and fined him RM210 million. Najib is appealing against both conviction and sentence at the Federal Court.
