It was understood that the statement was to assist the police in their investigation into the revelation of nine audio recordings by the commission during a press conference on Jan 8.

The audio recordings were former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak’s telephone conversations with regard to the 1MDB scandal.

The police officers arrived separately in several Proton Preve cars at 2.30pm.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador recently said that the police will summon Latheefa over the release of the phone conversations.

On Monday, a MACC officer had filed a police report alleging that there is a plot to discredit Latheefa after the release of the recordings.

The officer had also furnished the police with the names of the alleged conspirators, which included several lawyers. Their identities were not revealed to the media.
