Najib Trial: RM2.5 million for defence contract to manage fuel petrol subsidy

KUALA LUMPUR: Lawyer Ashraf Razak told the High Court that the former firm he worked in, Zulqarnain and Co, received RM2.5 million for a defence contract on Feb 2, 2015.

Responding to DPP Saifuddin, Asraf said the cheque was given by Habibul Rahman Kadir, a corporate figure who leads Fuel Subs House Sdn Bhd.

“It is for the tender to manage fuel petrol subsidy. At that time, Habibul told me that the payment was for a defence contract,” Ashraf said.

Then CIMB deputy manager Edward Innasi confirmed that the bank processed the cheque in 2015.

Innasi was the 19th witness in the case.
