“Jho Low was close to Najib, I believe”

KUALA LUMPUR: A former aide, Amhari Efendi Nazaruddin testified that fugitive businessman, Jho Low was most often spotted in the residence of former prime minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak.  He said this as believed that Jho Low was close to Najib.

Shafee: Tell me, what have you personally witnessed that you can conclude that Low was someone close to Najib?

Amhari: I saw him, more often than anyone else, going in and out of Najib’s home.

Shafee: You witnessed this personally? Where? Jalan Langgak Duta house or…

Amhari: Both (residences). Mostly at Jalan Langgak Duta.

Earlier Amhari told the court that Jho Low was a master manipulator.

“Overwhelmingly, he is able to place people and meet people and persuade people in various positions, whether high positions, medium positions or low positions, involving domestic and international individuals and organisations, so that he will get what he wants. 

“To a point that most of the time, we don’t know who these people are,” he said.

He said this while being cross – examined by defence counsel Shafee Abdullah in the trial of Najib who is facing 25 charges over RM2.28 billion that he received from Tancore Corp Ltd.
