KUALA LUMPUR, April 17 — Lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah today claimed that Datuk Seri Najib Razak was a victim of  Jho Low’s conspiracy.

“I dare tell you that he is a victim of conspiracy of Jho Low and gang,” he told reporter at a press at the Kuala Lumpur Court Complex here, referring to Najib.

“So give him a chance” to prove he is a victim of conspiracy, the lawyer added.

Malay Mail reported that earlier today, during Najib’s corruption trial over RM42 million of ex-1MDB unit SRC International Sdn Bhd’s funds at the High Court, Najib’s lawyers had sought for communication records between Low and AmBank officer Joanna Yu Ging Ping that were seized by Bank Negara Malaysia investigators.

“The communication [transcript] will show whether Najib is complicit in the criminality or not.

“He (Najib) was misled. He is a victim and not an accused person,” Muhammad Shafee said.
