Day 29: Witness Informed SRC International Belong to Najib Razak

The 40th prosecution witness, Afidah Azwa Abdul Aziz said Thursday (Day 29) that the documents for a Cabinet memorandum on the government’s guarantee for 1MDB's former subsidiary SRC International had to be immediately prepared as she was informed the company belonged to former prime minister Najib Razak (left)! 

Afidah (right) who is the Finance Ministry’s Strategic Investment Division deputy secretary told the High Court she was told of this by the division secretary Maliami Hamid. 

In fact, she worked "under duress" as she readied the papers. 

Both Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil, the then CEO of SRC International and Zahid Taib, the "multipurpose guy" for Nik Faisal – this was how the 29th prosecution witness Amirul Imran Ahmat described Zahid – had sat in front of her, presumably to ensure the task was completed promptly. 

In fact, on May 07, Amirul (right) who was KWAP Assistant Vice President (Fixed Income Department) had pointed out that the documents shared by SRC could not justify the financing they requested, and the documentation for the financing application was incomplete.

Najib is facing seven charges of criminal breach of trust, abuse of power and money-laundering involving RM42 million of SRC International funds. The Pekan MP was charged with committing the offences between August 17, 2011 and February 10, 2015.
