Former Malaysian PM Najib questioned by anti-graft agency

The People Know I Am Not A Crook Najib Tells Crowds in Pekan- WORLD OF BUZZ 3

A Malaysian police officer pushes a trolley during a raid of three apartments in a condominum owned by former Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak's family, in Kuala Lumpur, May 17, 2018, in this photo taken by The Straits Times.

However, US investigators say associates of Najib stole and laundered the money from the state investment fund through US bank accounts, some of which allegedly landed in the ex-prime minister's bank account.

"We had our own intelligence sources, that I would be arrested and locked up, because I was accused as being part of a conspiracy to bring down the government", said Shukri, nearly breaking down into tears as he described having to flee to Washington out of a fear for his life. The government has also told the current attorney general, who cleared Najib of wrongdoing in 2016, to go on leave, and has relieved the country's treasury chief, who is also the 1MDB chairman.

"We wanted to bring back money that was stolen back to Malaysia".

Trump also suggested that the North Korea embargo is showing cracks before the nuclear summit with the US scheduled for June 12. Ross said the US will pull the trigger on tariffs and trade sanctions, known as Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974.

He was summoned to meet with investigators almost two weeks after the defeat of his long-ruling coalition in national elections.

Najib has continued to deny any wrongdoing in connection to the state fund.

Meanwhile, over the weekend as news about the seizure of luxury items dominated headlines and lit up Malaysian social media, Najib's wife, Rosmah Mansor, issued a rare statement through her lawyers calling on the authorities to stop spreading leaks.

SRC International was a subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) before it was placed under the Finance Ministry in 2012.

Najib has said $681 million of funds deposited in his personal bank account were a donation from a Saudi royal, rebutting reports that the funds came from 1MDB.

In 2015 the anti-corruption agency began a probe on SRC International following allegations it had transferred millions of ringgit into Najib's private accounts.

Shooting reported at Texas high school
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez confirmed a large police presence at the school and asked people to avoid the area. Santa Fe Police, Galveston County Sheriff's Office and ATF agents are responding to the school.

Najib also said the facts had been spinned such as the claims that the Malaysian economy was doing badly, the country was nearly bankrupt, coupled with various sweet promises by the opponent were among the reasons behind BN's defeat. Reports have stated that the police have still not finished counting the seized cash.
