Rafizi claims Najib paid another lawyer RM325k

PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli has claimed that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak paid another lawyer involved in Anwar Ibrahim's Sodomy II trial with SRC International-related funds.
Citing alleged leaked Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission investigation documents, he said Najib had paid RM325,188 to the lawyer, Ghazi Ishak, in 2011, to set aside a subpoena for the prime minister to testify and be questioned in the Sodomy II trial.
Rafizi claimed the MACC had verified the transfer and questioned another lawyer regarding the matter.  
When contacted by Malaysiakini, Ghazi confirmed having received the payment, and that it was for him and three other firms. 
"It was a payment for services rendered," Ghazi said. 
However he denied any knowledge that the funds were linked to SRC International. 
Lawyer Salehuddin Saidin meanwhile confirmed with Malaysiakini that he was questioned by the MACC over the matter, as mentioned by Rafizi
His firm was one of the four recipients of the payment. 
However he too denied any knowledge of the money's origin.
The news portal is contacting MACC and Najib's press aide Tengku Shariffudin Tengku Ahmad for response with regard to Rafizi's allegation.
The documents cited by Rafizi, originated from the blog sprminsider.blogspot.com which the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has blocked access to.
The latest allegation comes in the wake of Sarawak Report claiming that the prime minister paid prominent lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah RM9.5 million.

Sarawak Report alleged that the payment was made in two tranches from the same account where SRC funds were transferred into. SRC, is a state-owned firm, and former subsidiary of 1MDB.
Muhammad Shafee acted as the chief prosecutor in Anwar's Sodomy II when the matter was heard in the higher courts.
Malaysiakini is unable to independently verify both Rafizi and Sarawak Report's allegations.
