PUTRAJAYA, June 21 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Datuk Seri Najib Razak was bluffing.

Yesterday in an interview with Reuters, Najib claimed that he did not know about the alleged embezzlement of funds from 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) as it was was kept secret from him.

PM Dr Mahathir today told Malay Mail in an  interview that it was impossible for Najib to deny he was aware of the transactions when his signature was all over the documents related to 1MDB.

“Who wants to believe him that he didn’t know, when he signed (his name)?

“Every bit of money that goes in and out of the first borrowing of RM42 billion, all his signature.

“If he doesn’t know, it must be that he doesn’t understand what a signature means,” Dr Mahathir said.

Najib yesterday claimed he was unaware that the money moved through his personal account was from 1MDB.

“We have all those. We know how much money goes into his account,” Dr Mahathir commented today.
