Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has yet to explain the RM42 million that was deposited in his private account, says Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan.
The urban wellbeing, housing and local government minister said it was Najib’s right whether or not to explain the status of the money he received from a former subsidiary of debt-ridden 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
“No. He has not informed,” he said at a press conference in Petaling Jaya today.
Asked if the RM42 million was also a donation, Rahman said: “I don’t know. It is up to him.”
Sarawak Report reported that RM42 million had gone into Najib’s accounts from SRC International Sdn Bhd, the Finance Ministry-owned company that had taken a RM4 billion loan from Retirement Fund Incorporated.
“The money taken from SRC International is a particularly shocking revelation, because this was money borrowed from the pension fund and never accounted for,” the whistleblower site said.
