Following the 1MDB probe, a former special officer to Najib was arrested on June 24, right after he was done giving a statement at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters.
It is learned that the man is a director of a company that allegedly received money from 1MDB.

According to China Press, the man is apparently the director of a company called Orb Solutions, and this company was allegedly the one that developed the ‘Najib Razak’ mobile phone application in 2016.
In case you didn’t know, the app allows users to interact and share ideas with the former prime minister. Besides that, we can also get the latest updates and announcements from Najib as well.

As payment to the company, RM2 million was banked into Orb Solutions for the app. However, the money trail doesn’t stop there, as there was another RM68 million that was allegedly banked into the same company between 2011 and 2014 in 24 transactions for promoting Najib and Barisan Nasional in the past!
The director is in big trouble now because the money banked in was allegedly siphoned out from the world-famous 1MDB!
However, we believe this is just the tip of the iceberg and more scandalous issues will be unraveled as the investigations go deeper. So stay tuned for more.
