Malaysian anti-corruption officials questioned Prime Minister Najib Razak on Saturday in an investigation into deposits of funds totaling 2.6 billion ringgit ($615.53 million) into his bank accounts that have prompted calls for his resignation. The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said in a statement that Najib cooperated with its officers during the meeting, which lasted two-and-a-half-hours. A graft scandal erupted around Najib in July when the Wall Street Journal reported that investigators focused on state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) [TERRN.UL] had found that funds had been transferred into Najib's bank accounts.
