Switzerland is investigating six people on suspicion of bribing foreign officials and other offences, as part of a money-laundering investigation into state fund 1MDB, the Swiss attorney-general's office said today.

Former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak is not one of the "public officials under accusation", the statement said.

The six under investigation are two former officials from 1MDB, two former officials from Abu Dhabi sovereign funds and two officials of Saudi energy group Petrosaudi.

The statement was issued after Swiss attorney-general Michael Lauber met with his Malaysian counterpart Tommy Thomas in Kuala Lumpur.
