KUALA LUMPUR – The investigation officer from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) verified that RM642 million from the Ministry of Finance Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) and Prince Faisal bin Turki was deposited into the personal account of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Witness, the Senior Assistant Commissioner from the Special Operations Division of MACC, Rosli Hussain, 54, revealed that the funds were deposited into the former Prime Minister’s account ending with 694 when he answered the questions from Harvinderjit Singh on the 56th day of Najib’s SRC International Sdn Bhd trial.
Harvinderjit, the defence counsel also asked about the law used by MACC and if AmBank needed to refer to the commission before granting Najib the access to his banking documents.
Rosli said, he did not refer to any law but only his own initiatives by informing AmBank to check with MACC before allowing Najib to access to his banking documents.
Harvinderjit: I suggest, you ordered the bank to not provide the documents to the defence so that the defence cannot continue with the case.
Rosli: That is not true, Your Honour.
The witness said, he did not know the full name of the MACC officer handling the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
“As far as I remember, her name is Aidah, a senior enforcer, but, I don’t know her full name,” he said.
Harvinderjit: Isn’t Aidah your colleague?
“Yes, Aidah is my colleague but she is not my wife, therefore, I am not sure of her full name,” he said which caused the court to burst into laughter.
The trial adjourned for lunch and was resumed at 2.45 pm. -MalaysiaGazette
