The police have identified the documents and statements needed for the investigation into Tawfiq Ayman, the husband of former Bank Negara governor Zeti Akhtar Aziz, in relation to 1MDB.
Inspector-General of Police Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said the documents and statements would need to undergo the mutual legal assistance (MLA) process at the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) to ensure that they could be accepted in Malaysian courts.
"In April 2022, the police issued an application under the MLA through the AGC to the Singaporean authorities," he said in a statement.
In March, the police went to Singapore to gather information and statements relating to the case.
He said the police were still investigating claims by Meta Platform Incorporated of fake social media accounts set up by the security agency.
Acryl said the Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) had been instructed to investigate the matter.
"I categorically deny the matter and I have ordered the CCID to study the claims," he said at a press conference in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
In August, Meta claimed in its quarterly adversarial threat report that there was the possibility of police intervention behind the closure of 600 Facebook and Instagram accounts in Malaysia for being a troll farm.
