KUALA LUMPUR, April 25 — Lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah today said that the case of Datuk Seri Najib Razak is like a movie where the “victim” is the “suspect.”
Shafee said Najib’s “main defence” is that his bank account was “manipulated by people who are unauthorised, outsiders like Jho Low and others” as well as some bankers who had purportedly gone “rogue”, according to Malaysia News Yahoo.com.
“This case is very interesting. It is going to expose a lot of people.
“This is going to be almost like a movie, because the person who’s suspected most turns out, I think, in the end a victim,” he told reporters here after court proceedings in Najib’s trial.
Today is the ninth day of Najib’s trial over funds worth RM42 million from former 1Malaysia Development Berhad’s unit SRC International Sdn Bhd.
Najib is accused of having received RM42 million in illegal funds, besides other charges of money-laundering and criminal breach of trust.
