The Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) has just released a statement that they have solid evidence to show that money from 1MDB was used to purchase a pink diamond.
As quoted by Malaymail, Senior Assistant Commissioner Datuk Khalil Azlan Chik said,
“There is money trail evidence of the purchase of the RM94.6 million ‘pink diamond’ from a jeweller in New York using money from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
“Even though the ‘pink diamond’ was not found during the police raid, there is clear evidence to show the existence of the purchase transaction.”
Unfortunately, the diamond itself has not been recovered.
The statement was released after Najib Razak denied the accusation that his wife bought the pink diamond. Rosmah herself has called the claims slander, claiming that these rumours were spread so that Najib could be voted out of office.
