Nearly RM3.3 Million Diverted to 2 Platinum Credit Cards

The Kuala Lumpur High Court was told yesterday that nearly RM3.3 million was diverted from one of Najib Razak’s AmBank accounts (No. 2112022011880 AmPrivate Banking 1-MY) to two Platinum credit cards. 

AmBank Jalan Raja Chulan branch manager R Uma Devi had testified that the bank had transferred RM449,586.95 from Najib’s account to pay to a Visa credit card and another RM2,833,147.21 was credited to a Mastercard credit card – on instruction from former SRC International director and CEO Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil. 

She had revealed that Najib had previously issued a letter of instruction to the bank to authorize Nik Faisal to manage his AmBank accounts. 

Uma Devi may not have named who the credit cards belonged to – but at the start of the SRC International trial, Attorney General Tommy Thomas had, among other things, said that prosecutors intend to provide evidence that in December 2014, Najib’s credit card was charged $130,625 (RM4539,176) for expenses made at fashion store Chanel in Honolulu, Hawaii in the US. 

Thomas did not specify the account number for the alleged credit card transaction – and it is unknown if it is related to the two credit cards mentioned above. But you get my drift.

Anyway, it is clear that somebody – you know who they are – had been splurging money that didn’t belong to them in the first place. 

My faith in Manchester United was misplaced. I had looked to them for a favor yesterday but they proved to be a big disappointment, having lost 0-2 to Manchester City. Indeed, the  balance of power in Manchester had shifted so emphatically that I fear it is permanent.

Liverpool must now respond at home to Huddersfield Town at Anfield on Friday, while Citizens travel to Burnley on Sunday. We must fight tooth and nail and still pray just as hard.

Yesterday, I was at the Subang Toastmasters meeting – and thanks to Vice President Education Michael Pua, I was offered a speaking slot. 

I delivered a CC #5 speech titled “Voiceless” – besides being tasked to evaluate another project speaker. My evaluator Lee Hui Kean gave helpful feedback – and it showed I can still improve!
