KUALA LUMPUR — An officer from the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) claimed yesterday that Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah received RM9.5 million from former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak when he led the Sodomy II prosecution team against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
An affidavit from Siti Rahayu Mohd Mumazaini, which was released by PKR president Anwar’s office, claimed the new information came to the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government’s knowledge on June 26 after the change of government in the 14th general election, Malay Mail reported.
“The information establishes that the appellant’s (Anwar) allegation that Shafee received a payment of RM9.5 million from Najib was true and that Shafee’s denial of this allegation in paragraph 28 f Shafee’s affidavit was untruthful,” said the special task officer to the attorney general.
The news report also quoted her as saying that Najib had issued two cheques on September 11, 2013 and February 14, 2014 for RM4.3 million and RM5.2 million respectively from his bank account. Shafee allegedly received RM9.5 million in two tranches of RM4.3 million and RM5.2 million in his bank accounts on September 13, 2013 and February 17, 2014 respectively.
