Najib Trial: Documents raided proved money laundering committed

KUALA LUMPUR: The documents derived from the raid on Ambank Raja Chulan branch four years ago convinced Bank Negara investigation officer Azizul Adzani Abdul Ghafar led him to lodge a police report under Section 4(1) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 (Amlatfa).

Section 4(1) criminalises money laundering with the penalty of a 15 year jail term and fined five times the amount or RM5,000,000, which ever is higher.

It was based on the transactions listed in documents seized in relation to bank accounts belonging to Najib, SRC International and Gandingan Mentari in a July 6, 2015 raid on Ambank’s Raja Chulan branch.

Azizul said this during the re-examination by Deputy Public Prosecutor Suhaimi Ibrahim.
