KUALA LUMPUR: Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor will soon be called in by police to have their statements taken over recently-exposed recordings of telephone conversations allegedly related to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal.

According to Criminal Investigation Department Prosecution and Law Division (D5) principal assistant director Mior Faridalathrash Wahid, the police will also summon several other key individuals over the nine audio recordings which were revealed by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on Jan 8.

He said they include former MACC chief Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad and Baling Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim.

“We will summon all witnesses linked to the nine audio recordings. We will (record their statements) soon,” he told Berita Harian, today.

On Thursday, MACC chief Latheefa Koya had her statement recorded by police over the audio recordings in a four-hour session at the anti-graft agency’s headquarters.

In a statement yesterday, the MACC said that its deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Seri Azam Baki also had his statement recorded, along with five other officers.

At a press conference on Jan 8, the MACC played nine audio recording clips, totalling 45 minutes, which allegedly involved conversations between Najib and several other individuals.

The conversations are believed to have taken place between Jan 5 and July 29, 2016.

So far, the MACC has yet to reveal the source or sources of the clips, saying only that the recordings were made anonymously and that they are authentic.

Received via WhatsApp:

Najib: Datin.

Rosmah: Ah, Datuk, ya.

Najib: Hi.

Rosmah: Hi. (Raises voice) Can I advise you something?

Najib: Ya, ya, ok. Anything?

Rosmah: You still don’t listen to me. They tell you to slow down on Abu Kassim, but Abu Kassim is making statements. He is taking pictures with Pak Lah. He is looking like a hero and you, the villain. And all these five people, can’t they see that their first priority is you, not anybody else?

Najib: Which five people?

Rosmah: In your office, lah. (Mentions names, some inaudible)…Amhari, Tengku. We are painted as the villains.

Najib: No, no, I allowed Azwan to make the statement. (Inaudible)

Rosmah: Ok, make the statement, fine. Now, today Abu Kassim is in Berita Harian, why is it they allow Abu Kassim to take pictures with Pak Lah? He has the cheek to thank Pak Lah and everybody else except you, and that’s not fair.

Najib: Hmm, hmm, understand, understand. I’ve already signed the letter for Dzul’s appointment.

Rosmah: (inaudible). I don’t like this. Darling, you are the prime minister, you should take in charge, not anybody else, OK?

Najib: Yup, I understand.

Rosmah: You’ve got goons around you. I told (inaudible name), if you want to help Datuk Seri, why aren’t you helping him? The moment this happened you should have approached him, ask how can I help. Now, after one week, (inaudible). I don’t understand. I complained against Abu Kassim (inaudible) and now you come to inform. I don’t understand (inaudible).

Rosmah Mansor is heard in the recording telling Najib Razak to invite Mubadala Development Company chief executive Khaldoon Al-Mubarak to Malaysia to resolve a dispute over 1MDB bonds guaranteed by the UAE fund.

Najib: That’s what Amhari told me. I said, you go and talk to Khaldoon. Try to convince him that there is no point going for arbitration. If we go for arbitration, everybody will get hurt. I can speak to the crown prince, but the Arab style is he needs to consult Khaldoon first.

Rosmah: You can’t blame the crown prince, that is their culture. We have to work around their culture. Maybe Khaldoon should come here and talk to you and Amhari and settle it. That’s how I feel. Not talking over the phone. Invite him, sort it out once and for all.

Najib: That’s a good idea, we can invite him here, I’ll tell him that.

Rosmah: And then in the meantime, we can also sort out Riza. Riza’s problem is that somewhere along the line the (inaudible) was not completed. That’s all.

Najib: Sure, sure.

Rosmah: Bring him here, a lot of things can be solved.

Najib: OK, I can suggest to Amhari.

Najib Razak is heard in the recording pledging to speak to Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan that international arbitration to settle the 1MDB bond dispute is not desirable.

Rosmah: Then we tell the crown prince that Khaldoon is here to talk to us and settle it once and for all.

Najib: A lot of things are moving already. These people, they want to see some movement on the other side, the Chinese side. The Chinese side is moving already.

Rosmah: Invite him here immediately. And tell the crown prince Khaldoon is here (inaudible) that Sheikh Mansour wants to solve this, we want to solve this.

Najib: OK, OK, I’ll speak to Amhari after this.

Rosmah: Or, or, you talk to Khaldoon, please come here, let’s solve everything at one go.
