On Day 77 of Najib Razak’s SRC International trial yesterday, the court was told that the RM2.6bn Arab donation was requested by Malaysia. Patrick Teoh presents for the Malaysian Insight.
The defence’s fifth witness also said that the funds were never brought up in cabinet meetings nor was it made public.
Thanks for dropping by! The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.
Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week. So please consider making a donation to Persatuan Aliran Kesedaran Negara, CIMB Bank account number 8004240948.
