The head of Malaysia’s anti-corruption commission had a bullet sent to his home during the investigation of a financial scandal that implicated former prime minister Najib Razak.
Mohd Shukri Abdull, chief of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), told reporters on Tuesday that during a 2015 investigation into how billions of dollars when missing from state investment fund 1MDB he was repeatedly threatened and told he would be “arrested and locked up.”
“I was threatened to be fired, asked to retire early, take leave early, and be pulled into the training department,” Shukri said, adding that witnesses he interviewed were “taken away.”
“I was sent a bullet to my house. I never told my wife or my family. I never even made a police report,” Shukri said.
He added: “We wanted to bring back money that was stolen back to our country.
