Some of RM1.9bil credited into Najib's account a donation from Saudi Arabia, court told

KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court was told that RM1.9bil was credited to one of Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s private bank accounts between 2011 and 2013.

AmBank manager R. Uma Devi confirmed that parts of the money were purportedly a donation from one “Prince Faisal al Turki” and the Finance Ministry of Saudi Arabia.

She said this during cross-examination by the former prime minister's counsel Harvinderjit Singh here on Monday (April 29). 

Harvinderjit: Refer to this email of bank statement ending 694, are these transactions from “Prince Faisal al Turki”?

Uma Devi: Yes.

She agreed that parts of the money - including RM304mil in 2011 and RM756mil in 2012 - came from “Prince Faisal al Turki”.

The witness also agreed that another amount was RM324mil which was credited from the Saudi Finance Ministry to Najib’s account.

To a suggestion, Uma Devi agreed that a letter of instruction purportedly written by Najib on July 30, 2013 instructed that the donation money be returned to the owner (Prince Faisal al Turki).

Harvinderjit: On the basis of the letter, it was clear the bank knew the amount of money credited was a donation?

Uma Devi: Yes.

To another  question by Harvinderjit, the witness agreed that the donation received was a huge amount of money that required compliance from Bank Negara Malaysia.

Najib is facing seven charges of abuse of power, criminal breach of trust and money laundering involving RM42mil belonging to SRC International.

The hearing continues before Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali on Tuesday (April 30). - Star
