Three MACC vehicles were seen entering his residence about 2pm today.

His arrest was believed to be related to MACC investigations into SRC International Sdn Bhd, a former subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).

On May 22 and 24, the former premier was called up to the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya to have his statement recorded over the case.
