Last week, Najib pulled out the receipts for the donations he received from the late Saudi King but two Wall Street journalists were quick to point out that Najib’s ‘new’ information was, in fact, old and quite misleading.

Much recently, the police have revealed that a total of USD972 million (RM2.97 billion) was transferred to the former prime minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s personal AmIslamic bank account, as reported by Malaysiakini.

The figure (RM2.97 billion) given is based on the exchange rate when the transactions took place. That said, based on the most recent exchange rate, USD972 million would amount to RM3.99 billion. Woah, so high!

According to deputy inspector-general of police Noor Rashid Ibrahim, the money “flowed” through Good Star, Aabar and Tanore. Noor Rashid was quoted as saying,

“Up to this point, 132 transactions involving proceeds from unlawful activities (wang haram) have been identified and further investigations are being carried out.”

He then revealed that statements from 64 people – including, Najib and his daughter Nooryana Najwa – have been recorded. He added that more statements will be taken to aid the investigations.

Moreover, Rashid told the reporters that they have identified 50 individuals who have received the money. When reporters asked if some of the individuals were politicians, he replied,

“Yes, political affiliation. I do not want to comment on the details.”

On a different matter, the deputy IGP has dodged commenting on the whereabouts of Jho Low – who is one of the prime suspects in the 1MDB graft scandal – to respect the sovereignty of another country. However, he did say that the authorities have information on the businessman’s whereabouts.

The police have surely got their hands full. We hope that the investigations will speed up so that the case can be brought to an end.
