1MDB probe: PM Najib's bank accounts not frozen, already closed

The Malaysian Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC) on July 9 said that six bank accounts, ordered frozen on Monday as part of a 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) probe, were not linked to the prime minister, as his accounts with AmBank Islamic had already been closed by then. The task force is investigating allegations in a report by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) that up to US$700 million from state-owned fund 1MDB had been transferred to Mr Najib for personal use. Mr Najib refuted the accusations in a statement on Wednesday, reiterating he had never obtained funds from 1MDB for his personal gain. The AGC also detailed items seized in a raid of the 1MDB office in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday, including minutes of meetings of the 1MDB Board of Directors.
