Ever since Datuk Seri Najib Razak was ousted as prime minister in last year’s 14th general elections, Malaysians have been accusing him of stealing billions of money from the country. He has also been frequenting the Jalan Duta Court lately as he is facing trial for misappropriation of funds from SRC International Sdn Bhd.
However, there is one person who doesn’t seem to think that Najib is at fault. This person is none other than Najib’s lawyer, Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, who has alleged today (18 April) that Najib is only a victim of fugitive businessman, Low Taek Jho (Jho Low)’s conspiracy, according to Malay Mail.
“We know our client is innocent because our client is a victim. I dare tell you that he is a victim of conspiracy of Jho Low and gang,” he told the press at the Kuala Lumpur Court Complex.
“So give him a chance. You have to prove that he is part of Jho Low’s conspiracy,” he added, directing the remark to the prosecution.
During Najib’s fifth day of trial today, Muhammad Shafee had sought for communication records between Jho Low and AmBank officer Joanna Yu Ging Ping that were seized by Bank Negara Malaysia investigators.
He said the communication transcripts would reveal if Najib was in the loop in relation to instructions on banking transactions involving accounts at AmBank and its money source.
“He was misled. He is a victim and not an accused person,” Muhammad Shafee said.
“If he is not part of it… he is not in the loop, how can you say whether he is in the know about the [money] source and criminality? That is the reason why we want the communication,” he said.
What do you think about Najib’s lawyer’s claims? Do you believe him? Let us know in the comments below.
