Najib maintains not guilty plea for money landering

KUALA LUMPUR, March 13: Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today maintained his not guilty plea on three counts of money laundering amounting RM27 million of SRC International Sdn Bhd funds five years ago.

Najib, 66, who was in grey suit, nodded when the charges were read out to him by a court interpreter and when asked whether he pleaded guilty or not, he said, “claim trial”.

The case came up for mention for the first time before High Court judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan today after its transfer from the Sessions Court.

For all the three charges, Najib was alleged to have been involved in money laundering by accepting a total of RM27 million, which were proceeds from unlawful activities, through his three AmPrivate Banking accounts.

The Pekan Member of Parliament was alleged to have committed the offences at AmIslamic Bank Berhad, Ambank Group Building, No. 55, Jalan Raja Chulan on July 8 2014 under Section 4 (1) (a) of the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act 2001.
