He wants AG Apandi Ali to show 30 million curious Malaysians records of the money trail so the matter can be finally put to rest.
PETALING JAYA: Former Batu Kawan Umno division deputy chief Khairuddin Abu Hassan has challenged Attorney-General (AG) Apandi Ali to back his statements about the RM2.6 billion being a donation, with facts and evidence.
He called for the AG to either tell the truth or put all speculation to rest by providing 30 million curious Malaysians with records of the money trail that saw the RM2.6 billion being channelled into the private bank accounts of Prime Minister Najib Razak.
“Display truthfully and openly the money trail which apparently was a donation.
“Show the banking records in black and white and afterwards you (the AG) shouldn’t let anyone else make blind accusations (regarding the RM2.6 billion donation),” said Khairuddin in a statement posted on his support group’s Facebook page last night.
He also reminded the AG of the many discrepancies in Najib’s statements when attempting to explain the source of the much-questioned funds.
He pointed to the initial denial over the existence of the said Ambank accounts that the funds were deposited in, to Najib later admitting to having received the funds that was purportedly a donation to help Umno win the 2013 general election.
Khairuddin however said this story too had evolved to include helping Malaysia fight the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood.
He also wanted proof of banking transactions after the AG, when clearing Najib of all alleged wrongdoings, claimed that a huge part of the donation was in fact returned.
“Show us which account was used to return the donation. What was the date of the transaction? Which source was the money taken from as the old account was already frozen by Singapore authorities.
“Does the AG understand the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) Act? From my knowledge, any government official found to have accepted foreign money in his personal account would be considered to have committed acts of corruption.”
Khairuddin, a long time Najib critic and his lawyer, Matthias Chang made headlines last year when they were detained under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act (Sosma) for attempting to sabotage the Malaysian economy and the country’s financial and banking system.
He was accused of doing so after lodging various police reports of possible corruption at 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) to international authorities in Singapore, Switzerland, France and Hong Kong.
Urging Najib to prove wrong all those who had published allegations of mismanagement against him, Khairuddin said the Prime Minister should make good on his word and take amongst others, the Wall Street Journal and Sarawak Report to court for their part in exposing the controversy.
